Chapter 66 He Offers Compensation
Ariaya put down her fork and knife. “Maybe I didn‘t make it clear before. I think we should…”
Hearst interrupted rudely, “Anaya, I won‘t push you, and I hope you do not intentionally avoid me.”
His handsome face was as calm and indifferent as usual, but his words did not allow any
Looking at Hearst, Anaya was a little at loss about what to do. She did not say anything else but
After lunch, Anaya got up to leave.
Hearst came out of the door with Anaya. “I‘ll drop you home.”
Anaya stopped at the door. “Thank you, but I‘m good. I drove here.”
“Has the injury on your shoulder healed?”
“Almost. It‘ll be fine when the scar disappears.”
Anaya had been applying medication for scar removal recently. The scar would leave no trace after a while.
Hearst nodded. “Take care.”
“See you next time.”
Anaya left Cloud Villa for the hospital where Adams was staying.
When Anaya arrived at the hospital, she contacted the doctor for a general checkup.
In her previous life, she had been tortured by stomach cancer for a few months. Anaya did not want to experience the pain a second time.
In this life, Anaya would do her best to prevent it. If it was discovered earlier, she would treat it
Of course, it would be best if there was nothing.
The results of the checkup came out, showing that everything was normal.
Anaya threw the checkup report into the trash can and returned to Adams’ ward.
The bodyguard at the door said, “Ms. Dutt, Mr. Frank is here. He informed Mr. Dutt in advance,
that’s why we let him in.”
Ariaya pushed open the door and saw Frank inside.
When Frank saw Anaya, he put on a warm smile on his face. “Hi, Anaya.”
“Frank, why are you here?” Anaya asked while putting her bag on the table.
“Look, your grandfather‘s 70th birthday is coming in a few days. I came over to discuss with Adams how to celebrate his birthday.”
Anaya frowned. “Grandpa has not recovered yet. He cannot participate in such a large-scale event. What do you think?”
“I‘ve just inquired the doctor. Adams is recovering well. There is no problem. Adams has been staying in the hospital for so long time. Finally, he is going to be discharged. I will hold a birthday party for him and welcome him home by the way.”
Adams said, “I have stayed in the hospital for so long. It is uncomfortable to stay alone for so long. It is good to hold a party. I have agreed. Frank will take care of this.”
Since Adams said so, Anaya did not say anything else.
Then Frank and Adams discussed the details of the birthday party. Frank did not leave until the nurse brought the food over at dinner time.
After Frank left, Anaya said with worry, “Grandpa, Frank is a scheming man. Why does he take the initiative to hold the birthday party? I doubt that he has other motives.”
“Anaya, I know that Frank is usually a little dishonest in doing things, but we are a family. I believe that he simply cares about me this time.”
The most important thing to Adams was family affection. Otherwise, he would not have given away shares in his own hands to branch family members for free after he had established Riven Group
In her previous life, it was just because he was defenseless that the entire Dutt family was destroyed gradually by Frank‘s family.
Anaya secretly sighed.
Never mind I will keep an eye on Frank when the time comes
After leaving the hospital, Anaya returned to her apartment,
Joshua was waiting for her at the entrance of the apartment.
Anaya did not intend to say hello to Joshua but was going to go upstairs directly.
However, Joshua strode over and stopped her. “Hi, Anaya.”
Anaya bypassed Joshua and went on walking, but Joshua got in her way again. “Give me two minutes. I’d like to talk to you about Lexie.”
Anaya stopped with a cold face. “What? Do you want to get even with me? The cooperation
between Riven Group and the Maltz Group has been completely terminated. Mr. Maltz, I wonder
how you will deal with me this time?”
Anaya still remembered what Joshua had said to her when she said that she would expose Lexie
At that time, Joshua said to Anaya, “If you dare to splash the dirty water on Lexie, it won’t be as simple as just withdrawing investments.”
Joshua also remembered what he had said.
But he didn‘t come here to denounce Anaya today.
“I‘ve investigated Lexie. It‘s true that she… she slandered you. And it‘s not you who did that thing at the customs previously either.”
After following Anaya to Cloud Villa, Joshua quickly left:
Joshua had Alex investigate the authenticity of the evidence on Anaya’s Twitter,
Even though the evidence was solid and Lexie had admitted what she had done, Joshua still had a trace of worry in his deep heart,
Anaya was an evil woman. This perception had been deeply rooted in Joshua’s mind. However, it had been completely overturned in a day. It was hard for Joshua to accept the fact.
But he had to accept it.
The results of his investigation matched the evidence on Anaya‘s Twitter.
Joshua thought, she did not lie.
I‘ve always misunderstood her.
Apart from forcing me to get married, she has never done anything wrong to me.
Anaya looked at Joshua coldly and remained calm. “And then?”
Joshua was stunned by Anaya’s question.
Joshua had imagined many of Anaya’s reactions, including feeling wronged, surprised, angry...
Joshua had never expected her to be so calm.
It was as if what Joshua said had nothing to do with her.
She made light of her image in Joshua‘s mind.
Joshua’s eyes dimmed. He handed her a black folder. “I bought back the vida for you. There are a few projects that the Maltz Group is going to do next, and I want Riven Group to take them. Take it as compensation for my withdrawing investments before.”
Anaya did not take the folder but said decisively, “I don‘t need it.”
“Don‘t you even check out how much this is worth?”
Anaya forced a smile and said, “Mr. Maltz, do I look like a person who gives in easily? Even if it could make me a billionaire, I wouldn‘t take it as long as it‘s from you.”
Anaya did lack money, but she would earn it on her own.
She would not take Joshua‘s charity.
It had been long enough for Anaya to be humble in front of Joshua. Anaya wanted to end this
Joshua clenched his fingers, and the folder was wrinkled from his pinch. “Anaya, businesspersons strive for profit. Why do you have to go against money? It is a big no–no in the business field to bring personal feelings to work.”
“I’ve never been a pure businesswoman. A year ago, if there were only benefits in my eyes, I would
not have exchanged for a ridiculous love with the 800 million dollars loan.”
When the past was brought up, Anaya was frank and open, but Joshua felt a sudden pain in his heart.
Anaya brought 800 million dollars to marry into the Maltz family, which desperately needed the money
Anaya was the savior of the Maltz family. However, Joshua regarded her as a thorn in his side, and
let her bear his cold violence for a whole year without a reason…
Joshua kept silent for a long time before speaking again. His voice was hoarse, and he said with
difficulty. I am willing to compensate you for withdrawing Investments, as well as other things in
the past. Whatever you want, I can…”
“No need.” Anava was determined and calm. “This is not the only thing you have done wrong to me.
If you have to make it up for all of them…
“How can you make it?”
With that. Anaya bypassed Joshua and went upstairs. Joshua stood still there for a long time.
