Chapter 32 Joshua Is Against Anaya
Joshua opened his mouth, but nothing came out.
After a long time, he finally reminded, “Hearst isn‘t a nobody. You‘d better stay away from him.”
He had asked Alex to check Hearst but found nothing
Hearst‘s identity was deliberately concealed.
A person that Joshua could not find out was definitely not simple.
Joshua did not know why Hearst got close to Anaya, but his intuition told him that Hearst was definitely up to no
Anaya thought that Joshua viewed every one of Paradise Nightclub dirty, so she said coldly, “I know who he is. You don‘t need to care. Please don‘t touch me in the future. Otherwise, don‘t blame me for suing you for sexual harassment!”
With that, she bypassed him and entered the apartment.
After she couldn‘t see Joshua, Anaya sat on the ground at the entrance and curled up.
When she was caught by Joshua, Anaya was really frightened.
She thought of the terrible dream last night again.
In front of Joshua, she didn‘t even have the strength to struggle.
if he were to rape her, she wouldn‘t have any ability to resist at all.
A clear bark of a dog came from the living room.
Sammo dashed over to Anaya, circling her happily.
Looking at the dog in front of her, Anaya couldn‘t help but laugh.
She picked up Sammo and smoothed its soft and white fur. “I should have opened the door and let you out to bite that bastard.”
The dog tilted its head.
“Let‘s go, I will prepare breakfast for you.”
When she was done with the job, she had to increase her training in the combat course.
Ii Joshua dared to touch her again, Anaya would teach him a lesson!
Joshua left Anaya‘s apartment and returned to the car.
His phone screen was lit. He took a look and saw a missed call from Lexie.
He called her back
Lexie‘s soft voice came from the phone. “Are you busy?”
Joshua was annoyed and said perfunctorily, “Yes, I was doing something else and didn‘t receive your call, What‘s wrong?”
“The wound on my stomach has been hurting these days, and I don‘t have inuch appetite. I want to eat the doughnuts at the entrance of the high school. Can you ask Alex to buy some for me?”
Hearins her words, Joshua realized that it had been a few days since he had visited Lexie.
During this time, he had been paying attention to Anaya‘s matters.
Joshua felt guilty and said in a gentle voice, “That‘s not clean. I‘ll let the private chef make them for you.”
“Alright…” Lexie sounded a bit disappointed.
Joshua paused and said, “I‘ll send it to you personally later.”
Lexie‘s voice became excited. “Alright!”
Hanging up the phone, Joshua stared at the phone in a daze.
Lexie was obedient, unlike Anaya, who would go against him every time they met.
Realizing that he was thinking of Anaya again, Joshua was upset.
What was wrong with him? Why was he always thinking of the woman who had divorced him?
Knowing that she was with another man, Joshua searched for her all night last night,
He shouldn‘t have done that.
The person he loved was Lexie instead of Anaya, a fickle woman!
He deepened this thought over and over again as if as long as he relaxed for a moment, the other thoughts would pop
When he arrived at the hospital, Joshua put the doughnuts on the table and asked casually, “How are your injuries?”
“The lines were removed yesterday. The doctor said that if I recover well, I should be discharged in a few days. Joshua, I heard that you‘ve been targeting the Dutt family recently. Is it because of me?” Lexie asked as she sat up.
Joshua was stunned for a moment when he heard that, and then he nodded.
To be honest, he had forgotten about Lexie for the past few days.
He suppressed the Dutt family because he wanted to punish Anaya for forcing him to divorce and get close to other
“Joshua, I don‘t blame Anaya. She didn‘t mean to hurt me. You don‘t have to make things difficult for her.”
“She should be punished for hurting you. I won‘t let you suffer for nothing.” Joshua said as he sat down beside the bed.
“You don‘t have to speak for her anymore. I won‘t change my mind.”
Lexie faintly sighed, as if she really felt heartache for Anaya.
Then she said casually, “I heard that Mr. Parkhurst seems to want to invest in several projects of the Dutt family. I don‘t know how Anaya convinced him. It seems that Anaya is able.”
Joshua said with a frown, “Timothy wants to invest in the Dutt family?”
He remembered that Anaya and Timothy appeared at the birthday party last night.
He originally thought that Timothy deliberately brought Anaya to the party to provoke him, but if Timothy was in a business relationship with Anaya, things might not be so simple.
What chip did Anaya have that could convince Timothy to help her?
Timothy‘s only hobby was playing with women.
A bad thought appeared in Joshua‘s mind. And the more he thought about it, the more upset he became.
He did not think about why Lexie, who had been in the hospital all day, was so well–informed about the news.
Lexie seemed to have not noticed Joshua‘s abnormality and continued, “That‘s right. Mr. Parkhurst is a playboy. Anaya may be in danger if she does business with him. Joshua, Anaya is your ex–wife after all. How about you helping her?”
Joshua looked sullen. He interrupted hier, “Let‘s not talk about this. Take the doughnuts. I still have work to do later.”
“Alright…” Lexie nodded.
After the meeting in the afternoon, Anaya returned to her office and rubbed her temples tiredly.
Frank and a few shareholders who supported him had been putting pressure on Anaya recently, and they always targeted her at every meeting.
If she couldn‘t get an investment, these people would probably complain to Adams again.
She was about to ask about what Timothy had promised her before.
Before she could call Timothy, he contacted her.
There was bad news.
He couldn‘t invest in her project.
“Why?” Anaya‘s knuckles turned white as she held his phone.
“Joshua is against the Parkhurst family. It‘s not that I don‘t want to help you, but that jerk is too sinister. I never thought that he would actually do something that would help himself as well.”
Timothy rarely spoke dirty words, but he was indeed in a bad mood.
It seemed that the matter was very serious.
Anaya pursed her lips and did not speak
Timothy also felt that he was mean, but he had no choice.
“I owe you. If you need any help in the future, you can tell me at any time. I will help you if I can.”
Aller a long time, Anaya thanked him and hung up the phone.
It seemed that Joshua was determined to destroy the Dutt family.
Since there was no one to help her in Boston, she had to look for others in other cities.
Anaya did not believe that Joshua could block all of her paths.
She asked Tim to prepare a new list of investors that met the requirements. After Tim received the news, he said, “Ms. Dutt, have you heard that Jared Helms has come back?”
Anaya was very familiar with the name.
As the CEO of Prudential Group, the youngest billionaire in Canada, and a business genius, Jared was a big shot with
Anaya had indeed heard on the grapevine that he had come back, but no one could confirm it.
After all, no one had seen Jared,
It was said that Jared had opened a casino in the gambling city in his early years, and although he had earned enough initial funds to start Prudential Group, he had also incurred many enemies.
Rumor had it that that was why he had never made an appearance in public.
Jared was an internationally renowned investor. If Anaya could get a chance to cooperate with him, the Dutt family would no longer be restricted by the Maltz family.
“What have you heard?” Anaya asked with a glimmer of hope.
“This morning, the Boston government released a batch of projects, and several projects were taken by Prudential Group. This proves that Jared has indeed come back and is very likely to take root in Boston. I am still checking the specific information. If there is any result, I will inform you immediately.”
“Alright, thank you for your hard work.”
Tim was very efficient, and in less than an hour, he sent Anaya the relevant information about Prudential Group.
She got the phone number of Jared‘s assistant and called him.
“Hello, Mr. Cassidy. This is Anaya Dutt, the vice president of Riven Group…”
Before she finished speaking, the one on the other side directly hung up the phone.
Anaya frowned slightly.
She had encountered this too many times recently.
Has Joshua told Prudential Group not to cooperate with me? Anaya thought.
