Chapter 262 I Also Like to Use Force
Anaya escorted Kael and Silvia to the parking lot. Kael thanked her again.
These days, what Kael and Silvia said the most to Anaya was “thanks”.
After sending the two into the car, Anaya waited by the roadside to hail a taxi.
At noon, Hearst sent her a message, telling her that when she was done, he would come over to pick her up and go back together.
Anaya originally thought that the issue with Bryant would take a long time, so she didn’t drive a car. She had planned to take Hearst’s car to go back.
Unexpectedly, in less than half an hour, everything was settled.
Now she could only take a taxi back on her own.
After waiting for a while, she didn’t see a taxi, so she took out her phone and prepared to use a car-hailing service.
Suddenly, Joshua’s voice came from behind. “You didn’t drive over, did you?”
Anaya ignored him and opened the car-hailing app.
Joshua walked to her and continued, “Do you want me to send you back?”
“No, go away. Thanks.”
The answer came fast and sounded cold.
Joshua did not leave.
He asked, “Bryant has become like this because of you. Are you not going to apologize to him?”
Bryant was Joshua’s best friend. Now that he had become crippled, it was impossible that Joshua did not resent Anaya at all.
Although Joshua knew that Bryant was at fault in this matter, he still took Bryant’s side.
If Anaya and Hearst had not intervened in Silvia’s matter, he might have helped Bryant suppress
Fairness was something that existed only in the world of the strong.
Anaya looked at her phone. Without raising her head, she casually replied, “He was at fault first. Why should I apologize?”
On the phone, Hearst sent her a message asking if she was standing at the hospital entrance.
His tone sounded as if he had seen her.
Anaya raised her head and looked around.
On the other side of the road, a Cayenne was parked there.
It seemed to be the one that Hearst had been driving recently.
Beside Anaya, Joshua was still talking.
“He is indeed in the wrong, but he is not that bad to deserve what he suffers now.” As Joshua spoke, he gradually became emotional, as if questioning Anaya, and his voice rose. “Silvia just lost her virginity, but Bryant has his legs broken! He’s finished for the rest of his life!”
When Anaya heard his words, she took back her gaze and looked at Joshua coldly. “Silvia has lost more than her virginity. Bryant had imprisoned her twice. Have you ever considered how she could handle the psychological trauma that she had suffered?
“What about the death of her adoptive father, and her disfigurement? Are all these having nothing to do with Bryant?
“She originally had a great future ahead of her. It was Bryant’s selfishness that ruined her! For Bryant to end up like this, he only had himself to blame!”
Anaya tried her best to keep calm, but when this matter was brought up, she could not help but be
She noticed that the Cayenne had already turned around not far away, so she put away her phone and tried to calm down. “Forget it. I don’t have time to argue with you about this.
“If you are here to quarrel with me, please get lost immediately.
“You should know that other than using words, I also like to use force.”
She threatened with force again, but Joshua was not angry.
He caught up with her not to quarrel with her.
He just wanted to talk to her more.
“I’ll send you back to the company,” Joshua said as he adjusted his mood.
“No need. Someone is picking me up,” Anaya refused again.
Joshua frowned. “You should have found a more credible reason to reject me. You were just waiting
for a taxi. Who will pick you up…”
Before he could finish speaking, a Cayenne stopped in front of the two.
Joshua knew the car.
He swallowed the rest of the words back into his stomach.
At this point in time, Hearst should have been working.
He actually came all the way here to pick up Anaya.
Joshua looked down on Hearst in his heart. He felt that Hearst was lowering his status by currying
favor with women, but at the same time, he was unwilling to see Anaya get in Hearst’s car.
Anaya ignored Joshua’s darkened expression. She opened the car door.
Before getting into the car, she looked back at Joshua with a smile on her lips. “Mr. Maltz, I’m different from you, a liar who likes to use sweet words to cheat women.
“I never need to find a reason to refuse you.”
Joshua sensed that she was insinuating the matter that he had found an excuse to deal with Lexie in
the past, and his face darkened more.
Without waiting for him to speak, Anaya had already sat in the car and cut him off her line of sight.
The next second, the car drove off in a flash.
What was left to Joshua was only the exhaust from the pipe.
Joshua pursed his lips and returned to the hospital without a word.
Inside the car, Anaya turned her head to look at Hearst.
He was focused on driving.
The light outside the window fell on his body and accentuated the outline of his figure.
She quietly admired the handsome man in front of her for a while before asking, “How did you know I was in the hospital?”
Hearst’s voice was clear and cold as he said, “That lawyer is my man.”
The unexpected answer stunned Anaya.
She had asked Tim to find the lawyer, who was said to be a big shot in the industry.
She didn’t expect him to be Hearst’s spy.
Anaya was speechless.
It turned out that Hearst was monitoring her all the time.
However, she didn’t feel angry.
Last time, Lexie hired someone to hurt her. If Hearst hadn’t arrived in time, she wouldn’t have been
able to sit here safe and sound.
“I used to call Joshua a stalker, but I didn’t expect you to be more scheming than him,” Anaya joked. “Tim isn’t one of your men, is he?”
Hearst did not answer.
Anaya sat up straight and was shocked. “It can’t be true, right?”
Seeing that she was anxious, Hearst chuckled and stopped teasing her. “Originally, I wanted to bribe him, but he refused.
“He’s very loyal to you.”
Anaya breathed a sigh of relief and returned to her seat. “I thought you had controlled all the people
He was not such a control freak.
He put people beside her only to ensure her personal safety.
Anaya asked, “Who are your spies around me?”
Hearst did not hide anything. He told her the truth.
When Anaya heard the names, she could not help but click her tongue.
It was unbelievable.
There were only a few people who weren’t Hearst’s spies.
“When did you start to plan this?”
“When Bryant wanted to kidnap you.”
Anaya calculated in her heart.
Hearst had been spying on her for a few months.
This man had ulterior motives ever since he got close to her.
He was such a scheming man.
It was annoying.
Thinking of this, Anaya couldn’t help but raise the corners of her lips, and she seemed to be in a good mood.
Back at the company, Anaya received a message from Yarden, asking if she had time to go out and
play together on the weekend.
At the end of the message, Yarden added: “Keep it secret. Don’t tell Mr. Helms.”
Yarden was so humble.
Anaya could not help but laugh as she agreed.
Yarden’s main purpose for coming to America was to see Anaya. If Anaya did not show her hospitality, it would be too unreasonable.
After two days, Silvia and her family were ready to leave for Germany.
Anaya went to the airport to send her off.
After two days of recuperation, Silvia had a faint smile on her face.
Although her face was still pale and powerless, it was still much better than before.
Anaya chatted with her for a long time and only turned to leave after the family entered the boarding gate.
In the crowd of people, Anaya saw a person sitting in a wheelchair with a haggard face. His eyes were staring closely at a figure at the entrance of the boarding gate as if he wanted to imprint that figure in his memory forever.
Anaya stopped in her tracks and quickly withdrew her gaze before walking out of the airport.
