Chapter 27 Are You Blind?
In the next few days, Anaya went out a lot. Almost every day, she had to contact a lot of people.
However, no one was willing to help Anaya, and Anaya liad got almost hundreds of no from various companies which she called at.
When her eyes landed on the name of the last company, Anaya hesitated for a long time but still dialed the number.
“Mr. Parkhurst, this is Anaya. I wonder when you are free to meet me?”
Timothy Parkhurst, Joshua‘s rival, used to have unpleasant moments with Anaya before because Anaya made things difficult for Timothy while she was with Joshua.
If possible, Anaya didn‘t want to contact Joshua at all.
But she had no other choice.
Timothy and Joshua had been against each other for a long time. But after all, it concerned merely Joshua instead of Anaya. So she figured she still had a chance.
“Mrs. Maltz, why did you call me?” Timothy asked.
The news of Anaya and Joshua getting a divorce had already spread among rich families. Timothy naturally knew about that as well.
But he clearly wanted to make things difficult for Anaya.
“I need your help.”
Anaya ignored Timothy‘s sarcasm and simply explained her intentions.
She was already prepared to be rejected, but surprisingly, Timothy agreed.
“I will attend a birthday banquet the day after tomorrow. If you agree to come with me, I will help you.”
“No problem,” Anaya answered without hesitation.
Timothy had not expected Anaya to agree so quickly. His laughter came through the phone. “Wonderful! When the time comes, I‘ll get someone to pick you up. You should prepare in advance.”
After Anaya hung up the phone, Tim reminded Anaya, “Ms. Dutt, Timothy agreed to your request so easily. Could it be a trap?”
“There should be no problem.”
Timothy was a famous playboy in Boston. The reason why he became Joshua‘s rival was that Timothy had once pursued Lexie in the past.
At that time, Lexie and Joshua were on a secret date. Timothy didn‘t know about that and tried to hit on Lexie. In the end, Timothy ended up being beaten by Joshua and his friends,
Ever since then, Timothy and Joshua, the rivals, had disdained and caused trouble for each other.
Timothy invited Anaya to the banquet simply because he wanted to make Joshua embarrassed.
A proud man like Joshua would definitely go crazy with anger when he saw Anaya, who he had once loved, quickly find aman and be with Timothy,
The reason behind had nothing to do with love but was simply because of the possessive side of a man.
Timothy needed a way to embarrass Joshua, and Anaya needed money,
It was a fair trade for boil, so Anaya quickly agreed.
On the day of the banquet, a car arrived at Anaya‘s apartment.
Timothy got out of the car and looked at his surroundings, a little surprised.
He wondered why Anaya, a rich lady from the Dutt family, ended up living in such a shabby place after she divorced
Although the place was just fine, it still wasn‘t good enough for a once wealthy girl.
Timothy went upstairs, and Anaya just happened to come out of her room.
With just a glance, Timothy was stunned.
Anaya wore a purplish–gray long dress that revealed her seductive shoulders, and with glitter on her silk dress, she looked like an elegant fairy walking among the stars..
Her long hair was draped behind her back and fixed with a purple hair clip near her ear, curling at the hair end and adding charm to her pretty face. Timothy also noticed that Anaya had put on makeup and looked even cuter.
Anaya had already walked up to Timothy before he realized.
Timothy came back to his senses. He smiled. “Ms. Dutt, you are so beautiful. I think Joshua must regret divorcing you now.”
But Anaya didn‘t buy what Timothy was selling. After all, he was a man who had been in so many affairs all year round and got tons of tricks to fool a woman.
“Don‘t joke about that!” Anaya replied with a polite smile,
Half an hour later, at the Tirrell‘s house, Boston.
From afar, Anaya looked through the window at the brightly lit villa.
She only heard Timothy say that it was his friend‘s birthday banquet, but Anaya did not expect it to be held in the Tirrell‘s house.
After all, with the Dutt family‘s current status in Boston, it was impossible for Anaya to visit the Tirrell family.
I1 Timothy hadn‘t brought her here, Anaya would never have the qualifications to enter.
Timothy got out of the car and opened the door for Anaya.
He reached out his hand, wanting to help her out.
But Anaya avoided the contact.
She had been married to Joshua for a vear but never even held his hand because she didn‘t like physical contact with
Ştill, Timothy took the initiative to hold Anaya‘s hand, entering the room arm in arm.
Anaya wanted to break free, but Timothy whispered, “Joshua‘s car is behind us. Ms. Dutt, you are so smart, so you should know why I brought you here today. Please behave yourself.”
Then Anaya turned around and saw Joshua.
Lexie hadn‘t recovered from her “injury” yet. And Joshua came with Robin.
Joshua soon noticed Anaya.
And Timothy caught Joshua‘s attention as well.
Anaya held Timothy‘s arm, both looking beautiful.
They somehow looked like they were couples.
But in Joshua‘s eyes, he found it disgusting,
Robin followed Joshua‘s gaze and looked over. Then Robin said in surprise, “When did Anaya get together with Timothy?”
Joshua retracted his gaze and said coldly, “She and I have divorced. And what she did had nothing to do with me. Tam with Lexie now.”
Robin was at a loss for a moment. He paused and asked with a complicated expression, “Do you really intend to marry Lexie?”
“I don‘t think you and Lexie should be together.”
“Well, I do.”
After Joshua finished speaking, he didn’t look at Anaya anymore and walked into the villa.
Robin frowned and chased after him. “What is so good about Lexie? So the reason that you are targeting the Dutt family is also because of Lexie, right?”
“Yes. Any problem with that?”
“You are ridiculous!”
Robin thought that Joshua wanted to force Anaya to turn back and never offered a helping hand to the Dutt family.
Now that he figured out Joshua was simply targeting Anaya, Robin couldn‘t just watch and let Anaya be.
Joshua seemed to have known Robin‘s thoughts and warned, “If you dare to help her, you will only make me want to destroy the Dutt family more.”
“Anaya is your ex–wife. Isn‘t it too cruel for you to treat her like this?” Robin was infuriated by Joshua‘s behavior.
“Cruel? What she did to Lexie is much crueler than this! That day Lexie almost died!”
“There must be a misunderstanding. Anaya is not that kind of person.”
Joshua disdained Robin‘s remarks. You don‘t know her at all.”
Robin asked, “So you think you know her well enough?”
“I’m afraid it‘s just your delusion.”
“Are you on her side or mine?”
“Neither! It‘s just a matter of fact.”
Joshua didn‘t know what to say, so he simply ignored their arguments and quickened his steps toward the door.
Timothy, who saw Joshua Icave with a gloomy face, was very satisfied. “If I knew that such a move was so effective. I
would have found you carlier.”
Anaya did not respond.
She only found their behaviors childish.
Joshua and Robin, on the other hand, entered the hall together. And Bryant just so happened to come down from upstairs in a hurry, unfolding a dark coat and putting it on.
He saw Joshua and Robin and stopped.
Joshua asked, “Are you going out? But isn‘t Mia‘s birthday banquet going to start soon?”
“Yes, my guards said that surveillance cameras on the east side of the city caught sight of my Shiloh. I need to take a look.”
Everyone in the city knew that Bryant had always been finding a woman called Shiloh Sheldon.
No matter when or where, as long as Bryant heard the slightest bit of news about Shiloh, he would put down everything and rush over immediately.
Even so, he still had not found a trace of Shiloh in the past two years.
Robin didn‘t want to stay with Joshua and volunteered. “I‘ll go with you.”
Joshua was about to say that he would go with them as well. But then Joshua caught a glimpse of Anaya holding Timothy‘s arm as they entered the door. He frowned and changed his mind. “I will ask Alex to bring some people with you.”
Bryant nodded his head. He didn‘t stay for long and quickly left.
Joshua hid in the crowd with his eyes fixed on Anaya and Timothy.
Someone in front of Joshua whispered, “The one next to Mr. Parkhurst is Anaya Dutt, right? Even with light makeup, she is so beautiful. I wonder why Mr. Maltz would divorce her. What is wrong with him?”
Joshua asked coldly, “I don‘t think she is good–looking.”
The person who whispered then noticed Joshua and was so scared that his cold sweat was coming out.
“Mr. Maltz.” The man figured that Joshua was probably embarrassed since Joshua and Anaya had divorced. So the man quickly explained, “No! Ms. Dutt is not good–looking. She has thick legs and a big waist.”
Joshua frowned, “Are you blind? She is the ugliest one in the room.”
The man had no words.
No matter what he said, he was wrong.
So the man chose to shut up.
Joshua snorted coldly and turned to leave.
