Chapter 49 A Taxi Driver
Joshua gazed at her, trying to see if she was telling the truth.
He always felt that Lexic had deliberately called Danica over to warn him.
Lexie‘s eyes turned tearful. “Joshua, don‘t you believe me?”
Lexie looked sincere as if Joshua‘s words really hurt her.
As she spoke, her tears fell.
Joshua hesitated for a while, but still pulled her into his arms and comforted her in a low voice. “It‘s my fault. I had a hard time at work recently, so I misunderstand you. I‘m sorry.”
He actually suspected her just now.
This was crazy.
This was the woman who had saved him and given him a new life.
He had an obligation to protect her for a lifetime.
This was an oath that he made five years ago, and he could not infringe on it.
The police contacted Anaya to update the records. Anaya‘s shoulder injury had not recovered yet. She could not drive, so she took a taxi.
Daisy and Todd were still jailed in the police station for the time being. Anaya heard the couple scolding each other from afar. The content of the scolding was nasty. No matter how the police on duty scolded them, they didn‘t stop quarreling.
The policewoman who led Anaya in sighed, “Both of them are arrogant. It can be considered lucky that they became a couple. Fortunately, they will be transferred in the afternoon…”
Anaya noticed the helplessness of the policewoman‘s words. Presumably, everyone in the police station had been tortured by this couple.
Anaya asked, “How are they going to be sentenced?”
“I don‘t know yet. We are waiting for the court‘s decision. I guess that they won‘t be able to be released from prison.”
“Daisy has only stolen two bags … Is the punishment for stealing so severe?”
The policewoman asked curiously, “Don‘t you read the news?”
“No, I haven‘t read the news today.”
The policewoman patiently said, “Last night, a piece of news was released. Many construction problems exist in the Toyar Construction Company‘s project. The workers of the company use inferior materials during the building process… Do you know about the Toyar Construction Company? It‘s the company of Daisy‘s family.”
Anaya nodded in agreement.
The policewoman continued, “According to news reports, most of the members of the board of directors in the Toyar Construction Company came from the underworld. A few years ago, a case of burying corpses in the playground was also related to the directors of Toyar Construction Company. In addition, several construction accidents had happened before in the Toyar Construction Company‘s projects, but the company had covered them up with the
“After the news was released last night, the government started an investigation overnight. Now all the higher–ups of Toyar Construction Company are basically detained. Daisy works in her own company, and she must be involved.”
“This company has been beset with a crisis overnight. I‘ve never seen such big news in my life…”
Anaya did not expect that so many things would happen in one night and was a little surprised.
It was obvious that someone deliberately did it since much bad news about Toyar Construction Company was reported overnight.
Toyar Construction Company probably had provoked powerful rivals. Its unscrupulousness had led to disaster.
Coming out of the police station, Anaya took a taxi and took out her phone to read the news.
All of a sudden, the driver slammed the brakes:
It made Anaya‘s heart beat faster,
In her last life, she died in a car accident. There were no‘obvious aftereffects, but she was still more sensitive than others.
She looked up and asked the driver, “What happened?”
“I almost hit a car just now.”
The driver hurriedly got out of the car to check the situation, and Anaya also got out of the car.
Fortunately, the driver braked in time and did not hit the car in front of him.
Two people came out of the car.
“Are you alright?”
The man‘s voice was clear and pleasant, and Anaya instantly recognized him.
She turned her head and saw Hearst walking over.
The man stopped in front of her and looked at her up and down. When he saw that she was fine, he stopped knitting his brows.
The driver said apologetically, “I‘m really sorry. I almost hit your car…”
The driver still wanted to apologize, but his phone rang. “Hello?
“Is my wife going to give birth? Which hospital? I’ll be there soon!”
The driver looked joyful and hung up the phone. He said in perplexity, “I’m going to change shifts soon…”
He looked at Anaya and asked, “Miss, can you please help me drive the car to the bank on Fifth Avenue? My colleague is waiting for me there to change shifts… I will pay you the commission.”
Anaya hesitated for a moment and nodded. “Yes.”
The driver was anxious and quickly thanked Anava. He gave the key to her and told her the contact information. After
that, he took a taxi to leave.
Samuel whispered, “He is so careless. Isn‘t he afraid that Ms. Dutt will run away?”
Hearst asked Anaya, “Can you drive?”
Anaya had forgotten that her injuries had yet to be recovered. “Maybe.”
“I‘ll go with you.”
“Do you want to experience a car accident on the road?”
Anaya was quiet for a moment.
Samuel took the rubbing alcohol and prepared to disinfect the car.
Anaya asked curiously, “What are you doing?”
Samuel explained, “Hearst has mysophobia.”
“Maybe I can go alone…”
Hearst opened the car door and got into the car. He said coldly, “He‘s the one with mysophobia, not me.”
Samuel was lost for words.
He thought, when did Hearst become such a cunning person?
They drove to the designated location, and the driver called and said that he would be there in a few minutes. Hearst and Anaya sat in the car and waited.
Two people came out of the shopping mall opposite. One of them was Karen Birken. She noticed Anaya and pulled the person beside her. “Lexie, look at the person in the car. Is she Anaya?”
Lexie looked in the direction Karen pointed. She found that it was indeed Anaya.
And sitting next to Anaya was the man who had taken Anaya away at the bar entrance last time.
Lexie thought, do they have actually been in contact all along?
“It seems to be her.”
Karen smiled, “The taxi driver next to her is quite handsome. Could he be her gigolo? Anaya chooses a taxi driver. She got a worse taste for men.”
Karen was Lexie‘s friend, and their relationship had always been very good when they were still high school students.
They were still in contact now.
Karen clearly remembered the story of Anaya, Joshua, and Lexie.
Lexie softly reprimanded. There is no distinction between occupations. As long as they love each other, these class contradictions can be solved.”
Lexie actually knew that Hearst wasn‘t a driver. After all, the car he drove last time at the entrance of the bar was not cheap
However, Karen had misunderstood. Lexie did not explain, and she was happy that Karen looked down on Anaya.
Karen snorted, obviously disagreeing with Lexie‘s point of view. “Lexie, you‘re too simple. How can a rich girl tall in love with a poor guy? The poor should be honest and start a romance with the poor. They don‘t have a chance to climb the social ladder. Only Anaya just cares about others‘ appearance.”
Falling in love with Joshua, Lexie could be considered a person who climbed the social ladder.
when she heard Karen‘s words, she felt that Karen was insinuating. But when Lexie looked at Karen‘s expression
carelully, she found that Karen was just scolding the man beside Anaya.
Lexie pretended to be a noble lady and said lightly, “Don‘t talk about this. Let‘s go to have dinner.”
Karen nodded. Before she left, she secretly took a photo and sent it to Joghua.
Lexie and Anaya did not have a good relationship. As Lexie‘s friend, Karen naturally did not have a good impression of Anaya. As long as she had the chance to stain Anaya‘s name, she would not miss it.
As soon as the two left, the driver rushed to Anaya and thanked them before driving away.
Anaya was about to leave, but before she could say goodbye, Hearst said, “Let‘s eat together. I have booked a restaurant.”
Anaya was about to refuse when she heard Hearst add, “heard that Cosette Restaurant recently has a few new dishes. They are delicious.”
Hearing the words “Cosette Restaurant,” Anaya didn‘t refuse him.
Cosette Restaurant was a traditional restaurant. There were only twenty tables available every day. It was difficult to book a seat there. It was said that there was not a single table available in the next three months.
Anaya loved the dishes of that restaurant the most. In her previous life, she had also ordered dishes. However, Joshua always stood her up. In the end, she did not go there.
Now that Hearst mentioned it, Anaya really inissed the dishes of Cosette Restaurant.
She hesitated for a moment and said, “Let‘s go fifty–fifty.”
Ten minutes later, they arrived at their destination.
The waiter handed over the menu. Hearst ordered a few dishes, and they were all dishes that Anaya loved to eat.
She could not help but look at him a few more times. She had a strange feeling in her heart. “What a coincidence. I also want to order these dishes…”
She had noticed before that their tastes were almost the same.
Hearst was expressionless. “Maybe it‘s because we have similar tastes.”
