Chapter 36 I Don‘t Need Your Charity
Joshua‘s sudden anger caused everyone around to quict down.
Bryant didn‘t expect Joshua to have such a shocking reaction.
In the past, when Anaya chased after Joshua, Joshua coldly treated Anaya with disgust.
People who had a good relationship with Joshua thought Joshua hated Anaya.
Moreover, after they divorced, Joshua deliberately targeted the Dutt fainily.
Bryant had thought that Joshua was really taking vengeance on Anaya.
“You intended to suppress the Dutt family. I was helping you.”
“Who asked you to meddle?” Joshua asked with a gloomy expression, “Where is she now?”
Bryant had never been treated like this.
However, they had known each other for more than ten years, so he was not angry at Joshua. He said, “In her apartment.”
Joshua picked up his suit and left in a hurry without a word.
Robin also stood up and chased after Joshua.
Before leaving, he warned Bryant, “Bryant, Joshua‘s feelings for Anaya are not just as he acted. You need to get your sense of proportion.”
Hearst took care of Anaya‘s wound and placed the first aid kit back where it was.
The doorbell rang. Anaya thought that the police had come up, so she quickly opened the door.
The people who had fallen outside the door had been moved away, leaving only two people standing at the door.
After seeing who it was, Anaya prepared to close the door.
Joshua predicted her reaction and entered the room first.
Robin was about to enter the room as well, but Joshua closed the door immediately,
Anaya was only wearing a nightgown with straps.
He did not want the others to see Anaya like this,
Robin was about to greet Anaya when Joshua shut him outside the door.
Robin specially accompanied Joshua over, but Joshua actually locked him outside the door!
It was not worth it for him to accompany Joshua.
Inside the door, Joshua lowered his head and noticed the red gauze on Anaya‘s shoulder.
“Are you injured?”
He reached out to touch Anaya, but Anaya took a step back and asked, “Mr. Maltz, is there something important that you want to talk to me about?”
Joshua‘s hand froze in the air and slowly withdrew.
“I heard that you had an accident.”
“May I know where you heard this news from?”
Joshua understood what Anaya meant. “You suspect that I was the one who ask people to hurt you?”
“It‘s not impossible,” Anaya said coldly.
Joshua’s face darkened.
Anaya misunderstood him.
Joshua thought he should not have been worried about Anaya!
He wanted to say something when he saw a man walk out of the room. He was immediately stunned.
Joshua looked at Anaya, who was only wearing a nightgown with straps. His eyes darkened. He took off his coat and covered Anaya.
Anaya resisted his touch and pushed his hand away. She took a few steps back again and kept a distance from him. She asked in a bad tone, “Do you have the hobby of taking off your clothes everywhere?”
“Why did you not put on your clothes properly?” Joshua gritted his teeth.
“I am at my own home. Even if I run naked, it is my freedom.”
“You can wear whatever you like, but there is still an outsider!”
Anaya thought that Joshua was talking about himself, so she said, “What? Are you afraid of that? Why didn‘t I know that you were such a conservative before? Mr. Maltz, you make me surprised.”
She was interestedly remarking when she felt a warm coat fall on her shoulder.
Anaya turned around and found Hearst appeared behind her at some point in time.
Hearst said lightly, “It‘s cold at night.”
Hearing his words, Anaya indeed felt a little cold. “Thank you.”
Joshua almost tore off the coat and threw it on the ground.
But he resisted his impulse.
He didn‘t want Anaya to think that he still wanted to pester her after they were divorced.
Anaya looked at Joshua again and asked, “How did you know I had an accident?”
“The person who injured you was hired by Bryant.”
“Bryant?” Anaya frowned, “How could he…”
She suddenly remembered what happened at Mia‘s birthday banquet.
Bryant wanted to take revenge on her for Mia.
It was said that Bryant was vicious and merciless and would seek revenge for the smallest grievance. Anaya used to think that it was just a rumor. Now, it seemed that it was true.
Joshua felt a rare sense of guilt. “He schemed against you. I should take my responsibility for that.”
Although Joshua suppressed the Dutt family, he did not want others to target Anaya.
He just wanted to teach her a lesson but had no intention of destroying her,
Josliua continued to say, “I will re–invest in the projects of the Dutt family as compensation for this incident. Bryant acted on the impulse to hurt you. I hope you can forgive him…”
“I will sue him for attempting to kidnap me,” said Anaya with a determined look in her eyes.
Joshua frowned, and said in a displeased tone, “You only suffered a small injury on your shoulder. Why do you have to cause such a ruckus?”
He felt that Anaya was somewhat unreasonable.
Anaya sneered and said, “Why? Do you want me to suc him only when his dagger is inserted into my heart?”
“Didn‘t you hurt Lexie before? She let you go. So why can‘t you be like her…”
Anaya interrupted Joshua. “Did I stop her from going to sue me? Lexie was guilty and didn‘t dare to sue me for that. I was so upright. I was hurt. Why should I swallow my anger?
“Furthermore, my injuries are indeed not serious, but Bryant kidnapped my friend. She suffered such a terrible thing for no reason. Should I not sue him?”
What Anaya said was reasonable, and Joshua had nothing to say.
After all, Bryant indeed did such a thing
There was nothing wrong with Anaya seeking justice for her friend.
“You can‘t win the Tirrell family.”
This was not the first time Bryant had done such a thing. In the past, it was always the Tirrell fainily who won the lawsuit.
Bryant had a hundred ways to force Anaya to withdraw her lawsuit or ruin her reputation.
However, Joshua would not allow such a thing to happen.
Although he hated Anaya, he didn‘t want her to be destroyed.
“We will only know if we can win after we go to court.”
Seeing that he couldn‘ı persuade her, Joshua didn‘t waste time. “If you insist on suing him, go ahead. I can‘t control you. I‘ll get Alex to negotiate with your people again tomorrow about the investment.”
What Bryant did reminded him of something.
Previously, it was luis lack of consideration. He had never thought that the signal he released against the Dutt family might cause outsiders to curry favor with him and bully Anaya.
Anaya suffered a lot during this period. Joshua had already achieved his goal of punishing her. It was about time for him to stop
Anaya said coldly, “I don‘t need your charity.”
“Anaya, I gave you a chance, but you actually dare to refuse it?” Joshua‘s face sank.
Anaya sneered and said, “You will withdraw your investment because you were unhappy. You often get along with me.
Il something like this happens a few times, how can I do business? Moreover, I have already received Prudential Group‘s investment. I don‘t need you.”
“You got Prudential Group‘s investment?” Joshua was surprised.
He had heard about the news of Prudential Group returning to the country.
He didn‘t expect Anaya to move so quickly and had contacted Prudential Group.
Joshua thought that as a young lady, Anaya was ignorant and could only live by relying on a man. If she left the Maltz family, she could not do anything successfully.
But in fact, not only did Anaya manage the company well, but she also gained Prudential Group‘s investment.
Perhaps it was because Anaya always followed behind him humbly and prayed for his love that he forgot that Anaya was once the top scholar. She was a talented student and was once famous for a while. She was the dream lover of many men in Boston.
He had never thought that one day he would think that Anaya was outstanding.
