Are you even in your right mind? Something’s definitely wrong with her if she decides to do you the favor!
He glanced at her and thought she couldn’t be of much use. Thus, he instructed, “Alright, you’re free to go.”
“H-Huh? O-Okay! I-I’ll get going immediately!”
Shanice felt as though a boulder had been lifted off her shoulders. She turned around and catapulted in the direction of the entrance.
When she was about to reach the entrance, Fabian instructed, “Hold on!”
“You’re not going to go back on your word, aren’t you?” Shanice started perspiring when she heard him. She turned around and looked at him with a horrified expression.
Why would I do that?
Fabian had no intention to explain himself. Instead, he asked, “When you kept Jaxon company, did you notice anything odd about Yvette?”
“N-No!” Shanice shook her head vigorously.
The man shook his head in disappointment and beckoned her to leave his office.
What’s going on? If that was the case, why would Jaxon pick on me? Is something else bothering him?
Even after perusing the compiled information for another time, he couldn’t determine the reason behind Jaxon’s odd behavior. Frowning, he reached for his phone and called his assistant. “Ask Jaxon out on my behalf. I’ll meet him in person.”
As he couldn’t figure out the reason behind it, he decided to meet Jaxon in person to get to the bottom of his motive.
“Hey! Are you looking for me?”
When Helen received a call from Jason, she rushed over to the designated location because he said it was an emergency.
Jason dragged Helen over and said, “Have a seat!”
Helen asked with her brows arched in confusion, “What’s going on?”
She couldn’t help but suspect the reason he had gotten her over. In fact, she thought he was up to no good and was about to drag her into another trouble again.
“Why are you looking at me in such an odd manner? I have asked you over because of something serious!”
Jason was irked by Helen’s suspicious look.
She rolled her eyes and replied petulantly, “What is it about? Stop playing hard to get and act like a man!”
He cleared his throat as he felt embarrassed by her statement. “Are you aware that Yvette has pulled her connections to get herself out of jail?”
Shocked by the news, she asked in return, “Huh? Are you sure?”
Is that possible? Yvette is merely a celebrity, isn’t she? How could she possibly be a match for Fabian in terms of power?
“What about Fabian? Is he aware of the news?” Helen probed further.
“I’m pretty sure he’s aware of the news, but it’s quite a nasty situation. According to my father, it’s going to be quite challenging because Yvette has acquired the aids of more than half of the powerful figures in Baykeep.”
Jason, who had joined his father’s company to take over the business, sneaked out of the company after he heard his father’s conversation.
“Huh? More than half of the powerful figures? Are you sure?”
Helen had her doubts and thought it was another one of Jason’s attempts to pull her leg, yet his serious expression suggested otherwise.
He nodded in a serious manner and repeated himself, “I’m not kidding. I heard it from the conversation my father had with Fabian.”
“What should we do?”
Helen would never allow Yvette to regain freedom after the things she had done to her sister.
“I have asked you out because I don’t know!” Jason gasped out his reply.
“What can I do? I’m just a student! Are you sure you’re not trying to pull my leg?”
Helen was equally frustrated because she thought Jason was there to make fun of her.
“You’re not alone! I’ll be here for you! I just need you to think of something!” he explained when he saw her face puckered in irritation.
