“I-I really don’t want that. I think that’s too hard on Yvette,” Hannah countered.
“Well, she should have realized what she was signing up for from the moment she tried to bully my woman,” Fabian answered placidly as he toyed with his own fingers.
“That’s right. She deserves it. I don’t think it’s harsh at all,” Helen added after Fabian.
“Helen, stop it! Even though she was way over the line, is there any difference between us and her if we deal with her in the same way? Remember what happened with Regina last time? Now, in the company, other than a few colleagues who are close with me, everyone else is afraid of me! Plus, that incident is a burden that is weighing down on me until this day! I’m still having the same nightmare every now and then!” Hannah exclaimed in an agitated tone.
In fact, she was rather soft-hearted at that time, but she knew all too well that Yvette would experience something worse than death if she let Fabian handle it. It had already happened once before, and she didn’t want it to happen again. That was something she didn’t want to see.
Right then, listening to what Hannah said, the other three persons fell silent. None of them knew what to say.
Fabian recalled the times when Hannah was having a nightmare. Her face paled in fear, and cold sweat trickled down her forehead. His heart ached every time he saw her in such agony. And for this reason, he even made some donations in particular. It took some time for Hannah to finally ease up.
“I’ve always listened to you in the past. Will you listen to me this time?”
Hannah knew very well that once she succeeded in persuading Fabian, Jason would naturally terminate his plan.
After moments of deliberation, Fabian started, “Alright. I give you my word.”
Hannah let out a breath of relief upon hearing that, and just as she was about to say something, Fabian cut her off. “But you have to promise me one thing, otherwise, we can forget about this.”
“Sure. What is it?”
“If anything like this ever happens again in the future, you have to listen to me.”
“Okay, I promise you,” Hannah agreed swiftly.
Fabian is convinced at last.
“Fabian!” Jason called out to Fabian. Apparently, he was still rather reluctant to accept that.
“Alright, enough said. You have to take Hannah’s perspective into consideration as well.” Fabian’s tone turned solemn as he spoke to Jason.
Jason heaved a sigh and slammed his fist hard. He then took out his phone and called his buddy. “Hello, you don’t have to carry on with our plan anymore. Go have some fun!”
Everyone at the scene understood the implication of Jason’s words. Feeling a little guilty, Hannah said to him, “Jason, just treat it as a favor you’ve done me by calling it off. Thank you for that.”
Helen was also a little bothered at that instant. She was all about avenging her sister but she failed to take care of Hannah’s inner feelings. Hence, she said to Hannah, “Hannah, I’m sorry for being impulsive just now.”
“It’s alright. It’s okay now. Let’s not talk about it anymore. It’s time to eat now. Why don’t we go for a meal together?” Fabian tried to ease the atmosphere and helped Helen out as well.
“How’s it? Do you understand what I said?” In the private room of a tea house, Lyna asked Yvette.
“Yes, I understood now. But who’s the right fit for that thing you mentioned?” Yvette nodded, but then quickly shook her head again and asked.
What? That’s such a simple thing, and yet you have to ask me about it?
“Just simply find someone attractive. When the time comes, tell her that she’ll become the leading actress as long as she’s willing to do it,” Lyna was a little impatient as she answered.
“Alright, I got it. Thank you.”
Yvette was sincere when she expressed her gratitude toward Lyna. If it wasn’t for her, she would never be fully prepared.
“We’ll be in the same boat from now on, so you don’t have to say that.”
Lyna was also very satisfied with Yvette. What she did was under the considerations that Yvette would continue to serve her. Otherwise, if Yvette was arrested, she wouldn’t be able to cooperate with her anymore.
“Oh, right, you better take action tonight. I have a feeling that Fabian would act soon, perhaps tomorrow,” Lyna reminded her.
