Chapter 117 He Is Bluffing
Anaya felt he was talking nonsense again.
Hearst was usually quiet outside, but sometimes he was very talkative.
He probably wouldn’t ask her to return the money.
She was silent for a moment before asking, “Have you planned to go to the casino in the coming month?”
She owed him a lot, and she could repay him by saving his life.
“I’ll go there in the middle of this month. What’s wrong?”
“It’s not a safe place. This time… You shouldn’t go.”
“I’ve lived there for more than ten years.”
He meant that he was not afraid of anything and anybody there.
After all, he was once one of them.
Anaya thought for a moment and said, “It may sound weird.
“Not long ago, I dreamed that there was a terrorist attack at the casino. The most luxurious hotel in the town was blown up, and all the people living there died.
“If you have to go, I hope you cannot live in that hotel and try to stay as far away as possible…”
As she spoke, even she felt that her words were not reliable.
She thought, just with my dream, I could not let him give up living in the luxurious hotel and downgrade to another
To her surprise, Hearst agreed to it.
“I will have them book a remote hotel.”
“You believe in my dream?” Anaya was stunned.
“I believe you.”
He thought, even if what she said is not true, I’d like to satisfy her request by living in another hotel.
Anaya never expected Hearst to totally listen to her. She turned her head and happened to meet his gaze.
He had charming eyes.
She felt it hard to remain calm under his intense gaze, so she pretended to turn back calmly, focusing on the scenery
outside the window.
At the square.
Samuel knocked down the last bodyguard. He kicked him out and smiled at Joshua.
“Your subordinates looked powerful. But now I see, they were bluffing. So are you.”
He sneered. Bria wanted to scold him, but in the end, she didn’t have the courage to speak.
Samuel’s guys were really ruthless in the fight as if they didn’t care about their lives.
Joshua looked daggers at Samuel.
But as he sat in the wheelchair, it was less intimidating.
Just as Samuel said, he was bluffing.
“Tell Hearst I won’t let that po.”
“Got it. Whatever. You have no chance to take revenge.”
He didn’t give Joshua any face.
Samuel continued, “If you want us to compensate you for the car repairs and the medical expenses, please send the bill to Cloud Villa, Goodbye.”
He picked up his little liammer and left with his men without saying any more.
After everyone left, Bria, who had been silent all the time, immediately said, “Joshua! Anaya and her man are hateful! We can’t let them…”
“Enough!” Joshua scolded, “Now you are tough? Why didn’t you act tough in front of them? Didn’t I warn you not to provoke Anaya again? You didn’t listen to me!”
Bria trembled and shut up.
“Bria must have been scared. Joshua, don’t be so mean to her.” Lexie Look Bria behind her and pretended to say something nice. “How does Anaya become like this? she was not so violent and cruel… Did we disappoint her too much?”
As she spoke, she looked guilty, as if she was worried about Anaya’s current mental state,
“I wanted to make it up to her, but she refused. How could she be disappointed now?”
Joshua was still angry, but facing Lexie, he tried to restrain himself. “Forget it. Let’s not talk about her. Have you bought any jewelry?”
“Yes. I put it in the car…”
Lexie suddenly reacted and rushed to the car, taking out the box containing the jewelry from pieces of broken glass.
The box was deformed. She opened the box and found that the necklace was broken, and the diamonds on the earrings came off, scattering in the box.
Bria screamed. This is worth more than 320 thousand dollars. It’s all broken! Anaya and her man must pay for it!”
As she spoke, she got angry. She blurted out, “Anaya is slaineless. She was married and she chealed! She even got pregnant, and now she is bullying…”
“Bria!” Joshua shot him a gloomy look. “Pay attention to your words!”
Bria remembered that she had promised Josliua not to talk about this outside and quickly shut up.
Joshua said to Lexie, “We’ll buy the jewelry again another day. Let’s go back.”
Luxe nodded in a prievance. She behaved like she was so tolerant without any complaints.
She took advantage of taking Bria to the hospital and asked Bria about Anaya’s prepnancy when Joshua was away.
Brihad never hidden things from Lexie. As Lexie asked, she said everything
“Lexie, Anaya is mean. She cheated and threw dirt al you and Joshua. She said that she divorced because there was something between you and my brother. Shame on her!”
When Bria cursed, Lexie calmed her down and thought about something else.
She did not expect that after Joshua found out about this, he would not hate Anaya.
She thought, Joshua never forgives people who betray him. How could he accept that so easily?
How could Anaya get him obsessed with her so much?
Two days later, Samuel arrived at Riven Group and brought Anaya a purse.
“What is that?” Anaya asked in confusion.
“This is Bria’s. I brought it back that day carelessly. She kept calling me these days and asked me to return it to her.
“How can I return this? I picked it up, and it became mine. It looks quite expensive. Could you help me sell it and give me the money?”
“Did Joshua send you the bill?” Anaya took the purse.
“No, I don’t know whether he wants the compensation.”
“He probably doesn’t want it.”
Joshua cared about his reputation. That day when Hearst asked him to send the bill, Joshua probably thought that Hearst was showing off his wealth.
If he really sent the bill for the costs of the car and the treatment, it would make him haggle over the little money and get inferior to Hearst.
He was pretending to be fine with that.
Samuel did not believe that. “It’s more than 1.6 million dollars. How could he be so stupid?”
“Well, he is stupid.” Anaya smiled.
After sending Samuel off, Anaya continued to work.
During the break at noon, Bria’s phone rang in her purse.
When she answered the call, the person on the phone immediately shouted, “Samuel! If you don’t return my purse to me, I will sue you for robbery! My purse and the things inside are worth tens of thousands of dollars. You should go to jail!”
