Chapter 74 There Is Estrangement
Ariava glanced at Frank’s family members and walked to a corner. “Have you gotten the evidence?”
“I got it. Someone anonymously sent me a few audios and a receipt from the pharmacy. All the
evidence points to Frank.”
Yesterday, Anaya suspected that this matter had something to do with Frank. Now, she was not
surprised to find out the result.
She did not immediately take the evidence to question Frank, but she asked Tim, “Is the source of the evidence reliable? Is the evidence clean? Can it be used as evidence?”
Frank had committed such a big crime this time. Anaya must send him to prison at once so that he would have no chance of doing it again.
Anaya’s series of questions stunned Tim, and Tim quickly apologized, “I’m sorry, Ms. Dutt. I notified you as soon as I got the evidence, and I haven’t checked it yet.”
Anaya said, “It’s okay. Check it before tomorrow and give me the results.”
After settling the matter, Anaya put away her cell phone and returned to the ICU.
Frank was very alert and pretended to ask casually, “Who was it? Why do you want to avoid us?”
“It was Yarden. I was afraid of disturbing Grandpa, so I went to pick up the call outside. Frank, what are you nervous about?” Anaya glanced at Frank.
Im not nervous at all. I was just asking.” Frank said with an embarrassed laugh.
He pulled Mark and stood up. “Since you‘re here, we’ll go back then. Call me if there’s anything.”
Anaya ignored thern without responding.
Frank didn’t get a response and left while dragging Mark away.
After coming out of the hospital, Frank called the person who bought the medicine for him to ask
about the situation
Just now. Frank felt that Anaya’s expression was a little abnormal. What he did this time was break
the law, and he knew that there was no room for mistakes.
When the call connected, the reply from the other side was that everything was normal, and no one had looked for him.
Frank was relieved and hung up the call.
What he did not know was that after the person on the other side of the line ended the call, the
person immediately sent out the call recording.
The hospital corridor was quiet. Only Anaya, Hearst, and two bodyguards guarding the door were
Hearst brought his laptop with him and sat on a bench in the hospital to handle his work.
“Mr. Helms, if you are busy, go back first.” Anaya walked over.
Hearst didn’t even raise his head. “I’m not busy.”
Anaya was not in the mood to persuade Hearst too much. She did not disturb Hearst’s work and sat down on a bench not far away.
The bodyguard brought the cold medicine and warm water over. Anaya took the medicine, and not
long after, her eyelids started twitching.
In the end, she couldn’t resist her sleepiness and fell onto the armrest of the chair.
Before her head hit the armrest, a large palm held her firmly.
She unconsciously rubbed against the palm and fell into a deep sleep.
Hearst’s palm was a little itchy, so he almost withdrew his hand.
After hesitating for a moment, he sat down next to Anaya and gently leaned Anaya’s head onto his
He listened to Anaya’s shallow breathing and the clicking sounds of the clock at the end of the
corridor and continued to work.
The two bodyguards at the door saw this and looked at each other, but they didn’t go to disturb
When Joshua arrived at the hospital, he carried the takeaway dinner and took the elevator to the
floor where Adams’ ward was
When he came out of the elevator, he happened to see Anaya sleeping while leaning against Hearst’s shoulder
He lostantly stopped in his tracks and stared at the two. And he seemed to be angry.
Hearst noticed Joshua, and they looked at each other with hostility.
The two bodyguards guarding the door unconsciously stood straighter.
Hearst and Joshua were in a deadlock for a while. Joshua was the first to withdraw his gaze and
turn to leave.
When he reached the first floor, Joshua threw the food box into the trash can and got in the car. The image of Anaya leaning against Hearst’s shoulder just now appeared in his mind. He just
couldn’t stop it.
Anaya had never been close to him.
But Anaya was sleeping by leaning against the shoulder of another man.
Joshua felt that the relationship between the two seemed to be not simple.
Anaya stayed at Hearst’s house, and they often interacted with each other, so Joshua thought that they might have already…
He was unhappy and slammed the steering wheel.
At that moment, his cell phone rang.
It was Lexie.
Joshua hadn’t contacted Lexie for several days since the thing went on a trending topic.
Lexie probably knew that Joshua was still angry, so Lexie hadn’t come to disturb him recently.
To be honest, he was not in the mood to pick up Lexie’s call right now.
He sat quietly for a while and picked up the phone a second before the call automatically hung up.
The call went through. Lexie’s trembling voice came from the cell phone. “Joshua, I just got off work late and met a few hooligans. I was blocked in the convenience store and didn’t dare go out… Can you come and pick me up?”
In the end, Joshua did not have the heart to refuse. “Location,” he said.
He had been in a relationship with Lexie for four years, and he valued Lexie so much.
He had already promised to forgive Lexie for lying to him before.
There was no reason for him to reject Lexie.
Lexie told him the location, and Joshua drove over.
There were several hooligans with colorful hair gathered at the entrance of the convenience store.
They looked into the convenience store from time to time and whistled.
Joshua strode into the convenience store. When Lexie saw Joshua, she immediately walked over
and threw herself into Joshua’s arms.
Joshua, you’re finally here… Those hooligans have been following me. I’m so scared…”
Joshua was a little resistant to Lexie’s approach, but he did not push Lexie away. He said coldly. “Let’s go.”
Lexie nodded and held Joshua’s hand as they walked out.
When the hooligans saw that there was a man beside Lexie, they cursed under their breath and left.
Lexie let out a sigh of relief. And she said, “Joshua, thank you for coming over. You haven’t contacted me for so many days, and I thought you would never care about me again…”
As she spoke, her tears flowed down badly.
Joshua couldn’t bear to see Lexie cry the most. His heart softened, and he pulled Lexie into his arms and coaxed, “It was my fault. I’ve neglected you recently.”
Lexie only made mistakes in matters related to Anaya, so Joshua thought that her nature was not
Anaya had forcefully made Joshua and Lexie separated, and Lexie doing all this was
Joshua tried his best to convince himself that he should not mind what Lexie had done before.
Lexie had already promised Joshua that she would not make any more mistakes.
Joshua wanted to believe her.
In the end, Joshua thought that they were estranged, and it was difficult for him to trust Lexie as
much as he had before.
Just now, when he received a call from Lexie, he even suspected that Lexie did it to force him to
He knew that it was wrong to suspect Lexie like this, but he couldn’t control himself.
He closed his eyes and tried to suppress the speculation in his heart
Lexie shook her head in Joshua’s arms. “You don’t have to apologize. What happened last time was my fault. I shouldn’t have hidden it from you… In the future, I will tell you everything I do. Don’t ignore me, okay?”
Her voice sounded pleading. Joshua was silent for a long time before saying, “Okay. I’ll send you
