Chapter 26 This is the Life You Want?
Anaya rushed to several business dinners a day.
It was way too much for even a good drinker like her. After sending off the general manager of a company with a smile, she rushed into the bathroom and vomited.
Her tears almost came out and were forcibly held back.
Anaya casually washed up and fixed her makeup in the mirror before walking out of the bathroom.
She vomited so hard that her legs couldn‘t support her body up. She leaned against the wall of the corridor to take a break
“I thought you could live a better life without the Maltz family, but this is the life you want?”
A man‘s piercing ridicule came from above..
Anaya raised her head and saw who it was. Her originally bent spine immediately straightened, making herself look invincible.
“It‘s bitter, but it makes me a human. It‘s much better than the miserable life in someone else‘s home,” she said with a very bright smile on her face that was covered in exquisite makeup.
Joshua‘s face became dark
Frank walked out from behind Joshua, put on the airs of an elder, and scolded, “Anaya! How can you talk to Mr. Maltz like that!”
After he finished speaking, he put on a flattering smile toward Joshua. “Mr. Maltz, Anaya was drunk. She‘s just talking . nonsense. Don‘t take it to heart.”
Frank‘s flattery deepened the sarcasm in Joshua‘s eyes. It seemed that he was laughing at Anaya for working so hard, but could not even get the approval of her family.
Joshua looked at Anaya with a faint smile and said to Frank, “Yeah, Ms. Dutt must have said it unintentionally.”
Frank said, “Mr. Maltz, the investment…”
“Sorry, can‘t help with that.” Joshua looked away from Anaya, “Ms. Dutt insisted on divorcing me. She should have been prepared to accept all the consequences.
“I only invested in the Dutt family to help my marriage partner. Now that we are apart, I have to use the money on more promising projects.”
Joshua left. Frank glared at Anaya and quickly followed. The sinile on his face was more flattering than before.
Frank‘s soapy posture was like a slap on Anaya‘s face.
Frank had a lot of prestige in the Dutt family and always showed people the image of a mature elder.
But in front of Joshua, Frank could only be a dog wagging its tail and begging for mercy,
And Frank was her uncle.
Anaya‘s fingers slowly curled up into the palm of her hand and soon loosened.
She did not have the time to be sad over these trivial matters.
How to get an investment was the initial problem she should think about.
Anaya and Tim both drank quite a bit of wine, and Tim called for a designated and left first.
Anaya leaned against the car and waited on the roadside for the designated driver.
There was a low noise coming from the flower bed not far away, and it seemed to be mixed with the sound of a woman
crying for help
Anaya frowned slightly and went to check the situation.
Behind the short slirubs that were half the heiglit of a person, a few slightly tipsy, foul–mouthed men had forced a young woman to the corner.
A man grabbed the woman‘s left hand and held her. He cursed, “Bitch, how dare you attack me!”
The woman lowered her head in fear. Her long black hair covered her entire face, making it impossible to see her face clearly. “It‘s because you touched me…”
“You ugly monster, you should be grateful when a man touchies you! I only did that because I was drunk Whoon earth would want to touch you?”
The man looked at the woman and smiled vulgarly, “You have an ugly face, but the figure is not bad. Let us have fun.”
“Gentlemen, forcing women is not a polite thing to do.”
Anaya walked out from the side and the men turned back to look at her.
The man in the middle let go of that woman and said to Anaya in an indecent manner, “Oh, another chick here. What? You want to join us?”
The man said as he slowly approached Anaya.
Anaya didn‘t panic at all. She calmly said, “I‘ve called the police. If you are sure you can finish before the police arrive,
you can try.”
Hearing this, the man stopped and was almost sober.
A guy recognized Anaya and said, “She is Joshua‘s ex–wife. Although they have already divorced, she was once Joshua‘s woman. If we touch her…”
The man was stopped by his companion‘s words. He did not go forward and only spat at Anaya, “I don‘t want a woman who has been touched by other men!”
Anaya slightly lifted the corners of her red lips and said coldly, “You are not just a coward who bullies the weak and fears the strong. Save your excuses.”
The man was enraged by her words, but the police thing frightened him, so he left with his men.
The woman in the corner walked over and mumbled, “Thank you…”
The woman still had her head lowered. Anaya looked down and saw the large scars on her face through her jet–black hair.
The hideous scars covered more than half of her face. It was terrifying.
Anyone else would definitely be shocked, but Anaya just watched her calmly, “Where do you live? I‘ll give you a ride.”
“No, no need for that, I can go back myself.”
“Those men may not have gone far.”
Hearing this, the woman trembled and was silent for a few seconds. “Sorry for the trouble.”
“What‘s your name?” Anaya asked as she led the woman to her car.
The designated driver that Anaya called had arrived. She asked Silvia for her address and sent her over.
The car stopped in an old neighborhood and Silvia was about to get off.
On the first floor of the residential building, several men seemed to be walking casually, but they seemed to be looking for something
Silvia instantly stopped her move to open the door when she saw them.
Anaya also noticed the people outside. She asked as she saw Silvia become stiff, “What‘s wrong?”
“Can you send me to the hotel?”
“Do you have a place to stay in the hotel?”
Silvia worked part–time in a hotel. The manager might agree to let her stay the night on the staircase.
Anaya did not send Silvia back to the hotel but took her back to her place.
“Ms. Dutt, I can stay in the hotel.”
Anaya said, “Follow me upstairs.”
Silvia pursed her lips and thanked Anaya again.
She had thanked her many times that night.
Anaya gave a pair of pajamas that she hadn‘t worn before to Silvia, and Silvia took the pajamas into the bathroom.
Anaya simply tidied up the room and noticed a diamond ring on the table.
It was Silvia‘s.
She remembered seeing this ring in a magazine not long ago.
It was the last piece of a famous foreign designer before he quit the market two years ago. A wealthy businessman in Boston bid it at 2 million, then the ring disappeared.
This ring should be the real piece.
Bryant had given it to Silvia.
Anaya had heard that Bryant Tirrell, the eldest son of the Tirrell family, used to have a secret beautiful woman.
He had used some tricks to trap that woman by his side.
That woman hated him so inuch that she disfigured herself and her whereabouts were unknown ever since then.
Bryant did not know that she was disfigured and naturally did not know that his beloved beauty no longer existed, leaving only a woman with a broken face.
Just now outside the hotel, Anaya recognized Silvia at a glance. Silvia, the once renowned genius painter, and now a cleaner of the hotel.
Anaya saved Silvia half out of pity and half for her purpose.
According to the trajectory of her previous life, if nothing went wrong, Silvia would return to her biological parents in at most a year.
Silvia‘s biological parents were not ordinary people. They would be a great help to Anaya.
When Anaya woke up the next day, Silvia had left.
Breakfast was ready, and the pajamas she lent to Silvia were neatly stacked on the table.
Anaya sat down at the dining table with a gentle gaze.
A polite girl she thought.
