“I’m sorry.” I stood in the hallway with my head down and I was sad.
I found out a lot of things are not what I thought.
I thought it was just my own thing, but it was affecting people around me.
Everyone was worried and affected.
When I got back to the office, Chloe said, “Becky, why don’t you have a press conference like Cindy?”
“No way.” Linda followed me and said, “do you think the press conference is casual? They’ve already handed out questions to reporters, and then they’ve prepared answers. It’s all scripts. If you hold a press conference, you can’t answer their questions.”
“Then we can prepare the script.”
Linda shook her head. “With Becky’s reputation now, even if you give money, few people may be willing to cooperate.”
I sat there, speechless.
I felt like everything was in a dead end.
The four of us sat in the office all day and couldn’t find a way.
In the evening, Daisy wanted to have a hot pot. She was going abroad and wouldn’t be able to eat hot pot for a long time. She would surely miss it!
We were helpless and agreed.
We went to a hotpot restaurant.
We sat in the corner.
After we ordered, the waiter asked us what we wanted.
“I want the hottest!” Daisy yelled.
The waiter took it seriously and left.
After the hot pot was served, we poured the ingredients into the pot and regretted it.
Chloe looked at Daisy drinking yogurt and complained, “you want the hottest. You have to eat it. Don’t just drink!”
“Don’t underestimate me.” Daisy fished out four broccoli with a spoon. She gave two to Chloe and two to herself and said, “let’s have two broccoli and no yogurt. Whoever loses must imitate the sound of a pig.”
“OK!” Chloe agreed right away.
They began to eat broccoli.
Meat was not spicy, but vegetables were the hottest.
Chloe ate a piece of broccoli and couldn’t stand it. She picked up a yogurt beside her and drank it.
So did Daisy. She watched Chloe drink yogurt and said, “I’m not afraid to imitate the pig’s cry!”
With that, she picked up the yogurt beside her and drank it.
Linda and I looked at them and suggested, “we can order again.”
Daisy and Chloe spoke in unison.
When I was about to call for a waiter, I saw a woman in the distance who was a little familiar.
I looked at her subconsciously and found out it was Cindy.
I didn’t think about it and went straight after her.
Cindy saw me and froze. Then she looked at me. “It looks like you’re living a good life.”
Instead of responding to her, I asked, “Cindy, I’ve told your father that I have no interest in your property. You don’t have to target me. I just hope I have nothing to do with you.”
Cindy listened to me and sneered, “really? You know what? I used to be a rich woman, but since you appeared, my dignity has been trampled by you and played by Sean again and again. We got divorced after we canceled our engagement and got married. I was taken back and thrown away like a rag by him.” She paused and asked me, “what would you think if you were me?”
I was stunned by her words.
Cindy’s situation was really like this, which made me feel very embarrassed, “I’m sorry. I…”
“Sorry?” Cindy interrupted, “do you think you can bully me? I knew you weren’t dead. If you didn’t come back, I would let go. But you came back and Ming was protecting you so I couldn’t do anything to you. Now you break up with Ming and you pester Sean! You deserve it!”
“But after you married Sean, you cheated. You were with another man!” I said to Cindy, “I saw you meet that man at the airport.”
“So what?” Cindy put her hands on her chest and said, “Sean hasn’t touched me for so many years. Can’t I find someone to satisfy me? Ming is very good to you. Of course you don’t understand me.”
“I have nothing to do with him.”
“I don’t believe you.” Cindy glanced at me. “Ming is not a good person. How could he not touch you? I know you’re a bitch. You don’t have to pretend.”
I didn’t want to argue with her, “how are you going to end it?”
It was the key.
The point was to put an end to this farce and not let others get involved.
Cindy glanced at me. “Why?”
She seemed to think of something. She paused. “If you die, it’s over.”
“Keep dreaming.” I interrupted Cindy directly, “not only will I not die, but I will live well. It’s not my fault you are like this.”
“You did it wrong. You know Sean doesn’t love you, but you always compromise. You gave Sean your dignity and let him trample it. It has nothing to do with other people. I am innocent, but you are angry with me. It only means that you are angry and stupid!”
Cindy’s face turned green for a moment when she was stimulated by what I said.
At this time, Daisy suddenly came up and she put her arms around my neck and said, “come to dinner. Don’t talk to her.”
I knew what she meant.
I smiled, “OK.”
With that, I turned and left with Daisy.
Although I was a little upset, I could only do so.
I couldn’t give in, or Cindy would bully me more.
I went home after supper but Sean hadn’t come back yet.
I sat alone on the huge sofa and looked out of the window. I came up with a solution.
Although I had no complete assurance.
At nine o’clock the next morning, I found Arthur’s mobile number in my cell phone. He was my attorney.
In fact, as long as the trial details and evidence were made public, things on the Internet would prove to be false.
I called Arthur and made an appointment with him at 10 a.m. in the cafe near their law firm.
