Chapter 39 Lesson
“Ms. Dutt made a mistake and tried to make up for it. What about you?” A shareholder who was close to Adams spoke for Anaya. “Champin Company‘s start came yesterday tourge us to pay them liquidated damages. When do you plan to pay? If we don’t compensate them, Riven Group‘s reputation will be damaged!”
Mark wanted to refute, but Frank quietly stopped Mark and shook his head.
Mark was very angry, but he had to give up.
Frank said with a false smile, “The liquidated damages are high, so I spent some time asking a lot of people to help me get enough money. This afternoon, I will transfer the money to Champin Company.
“Mark and I are both parts of Riven Group. We definitely won‘t ruin Riven Group‘s reputation.”
Frank is so hypocritical.
Anaya smiled meaningfully. “It seems that you took a lot of effort to get the money together.”
“Although I spent a lot of effort, this is what I should do. After all, Mark made a mistake. We should take responsibility.”
Champin Company‘s project and Anaya‘s success in getting the investment had made Frank and Mark lose people‘s support, and the compensation for Champin Company was unavoidable. Frank said this just to repair his and Mark‘s image.
He had to let others see his positive attitude towards solving problems.
“You don‘t seem to know that Vivianna spent a lot of money on jewelry.”
“What jewelry?” Frank was embarrassed.
“I don‘t know the details.” Anaya smiled, but her eyes were cold. “I just heard that Vivianna ordered a batch of jewelry. Just the main stone of a necklace is 20 thousand dollars.
“At that time, we were in the elevator together. Other people should also know this. Uncle, you said you didn‘t have enough money to pay liquidated damages, but Vivianna spent a lot of money on luxury goods. I‘d like to know how the employees view you.”
Frank‘s smile disappeared. “Vivianna should have bought these with her own money…”
“Really? I thought that you had moncy, but you deliberately didn‘t want to pay Champin Company.”
Anaya seemed to believe Frank‘s words, but everyone knew what she meant.
Frank was furious, but he could only force a smile.
Coming out of the meeting room, Frank wore a cold face and ordered the people around him, “Call Vivianna over!”
Vivianna did not hide the fact that she was Frank‘s daughter, so many people were trying to curry favor with her. Just as she was enjoying it, she learned that Frank was looking for her.
The colleagues were even more attentive to Vivianna, she was proud and went upstairs arrogantly.
When Vivianna happily walked into Frank‘s office, Frank slapped her.
“You idiot! Why did you show off your jewelry in front of Anaya? Do you want others to know that we have money but don‘t want to pay liquidated damages?”
Frank shouted at Vivianna furiously.
Vivianna was shocked and said in an accrieved tone, “1 didn‘t want to show off. I just received a call from the jewelry store while taking the elevator…”
“Why don‘t you answer the phone where nobody is? Because of you, Anaya cmbarrassed me at today‘s board meeting.”
“I didn‘t do it on purpose… I won‘t do it again…” Vivianna said with tears in her eyes,
Seeing her cry, Frank finally calmed down.
After all, Vivianna was his daughter. No matter how angry he was, sceing her cry, he felt that his heart softened.
Frank rubbed his temples tiredly. “I don‘t care how arrogant you used to be, but now you work in the company, you‘d better keep a low profile. Don‘t cause trouble for me, understand?”
Vivianna nodded obediently, but she hated Anaya even more.
Anaya targeted my family again!
I won‘t let her go!
Anaya called the lawyer and silvia over.
When Silvia entered, the lawyer was analyzing the case with Anaya.
“We don‘t have direct evidence to prove that Mr. Tirrell is involved in this matter. If someone else took the blame for him, it would be difficult for him to receive the deserved punishment. In addition, Ms. Tirrell and you are not seriously injured, so…”
When Anaya saw Silvia come in, she raised her hand to signal the lawyer to stop.
“Did you get hurt last night?”
“No.” Silvia shook her head.
“I was just kicked and then fell. I didn‘t get hurt. Don‘t worry.”
Silvia hesitated for a moment and said, “Ms. Dutt, can I talk to you alone?”
The lawyer glanced at Anaya. Seeing her nod, he got up and left.
Silvia sat opposite Anaya and stared at her hands on her knees. “Ms. Dutt, please don‘t sue Bryant.”
“Why?” Anaya was surprised.
She knew something had happened between Bryant and Silvia, and she thought that Silvia would be very happy to see Bryant be punished.
Silvia was silent for a few seconds. “I don‘t want to meet him. I know my request is strange, but…”
She really did not want to have any more interactions with Bryant.
Anaya saw her uneasiness and did not force her, “Alright.”
Silvia was the biggest victim of this incident, so Anaya respected her wishes.
“I‘m really sorry. You were injured, but I ask you not to punish Bryant…”
“It‘s fine. After all, you‘re involved because of me. I should apologize to you. This time, I owe you a favor. If you
encounter difficulties in the future, you can always ask me for help.”
After Silvia left, Anaya went to the hospital alone.
She didn‘t want Adams to know that she was injured, so she went to a more remote hospital.
It was a female doctor who changed Anaya‘s dressing. While changing Anaya‘s dressing, she chatted with Anaya.
“Your wound is bandaged professionally… Which hospital were you in yesterday?”
“My friend bandaged me.”
“Is he a doctor?”
“Probably not.” Anaya thought for a moment.
Although Hearst had a faint smell of herbs, the fragrance didn‘t smell like the disinfected water in the hospital or the medicine in the special pharmacy.
Moreover, Hearst was very skilled, and he was different from the scholar who had been engaged in research for a long time.
Anaya didn‘t want to pry into Hearst‘s privacy. She got along with him naturally. Thus, she did not deliberately ask about his profession and life–related information.
After all, if she knew more about Hearst, she would be more involved with him.
After changing the medicine, she came out of the doctor‘s office.
When the doctor bandaged Anaya just now, there was a wail coming from the opposite room. She thought it sounded familiar.
And then Anaya saw Mia and Bryant coming out.
Mia should have been screaming just now.
Mia and Bryant were injured. Mia had a cast on her left hand and Bryant had a cast on his right hand. It looked quite symmetrical.
Mia was arrogant and Bryant was ruthless. They had many enemies in Boston, but no one dared to retaliate against
Anaya didn‘t know who had taught them a lesson and made them badly injured.
When Mia saw Anaya, her face turned paler, as if she had seen a ghost.
Then Mia seemed to be very angry, but she did not dare to provoke Anaya. She only stared at Anaya and her chest heaved.
Anaya said lazily, “Ms. Tirrell, don‘t stare at me anymore.”
Hearing Anaya‘s words, Mia suddenly remembered what the man said this morning when he locked her in the iron bucket filled with water in the ice house.
“If you meet Anaya in the future, you‘d better take a detour.
“If you dare to look at her, I will dig out your eyes.”
Mia trembled with fear. She stopped looking at Anaya immediately and hid behind Bryant as if Anaya was a monster.
Mia was flustered, but Bryant was calm.
When the doctor bandaged Bryant‘s wound just now, he didn‘t cry out because of pain, but just frowned, just like now.
Heglanced at Anaya and said in disgust, “You have found a new boyfriend, so you divorced Joshua so soon. I underestimated you before.”
