Chapter 87 Determined to Be His Enemy
Yarden was lying on the king-size bed in the hotel and lavishing praise on Anaya. He was about to ask Anaya out for lunch when he suddenly received a call from Kim.
“Yarden, when are you coming back?”
“I plan to go back right before the university starts. What’s up?”
Kim glanced at the young miss of the Cooper family sitting in the living room who was talking and laughing with his mom. “Your grandmother went for a walk by the river today and accidentally fell and hurt her leg. Hurry and come back.”
Yarden sat bolt upright. “Is it serious? Which hospital are you in?”
“It’s a bit serious. They are putting her leg into a cast. Central Hospital. Hurry up and take a plane back. I’ll get someone to pick you up.”
Yarden nodded and hung up. He immediately booked the earliest flight and rushed to the airport after packing up his luggage.
Only when Yarden arrived at the departure lounge did he have time to reply to Anaya.
Yarden: “Anaya, my grandma hurt her leg. I have to go back to see her. I’m already at the airport. Let’s have lunch together another day.”
Yarden got the reply a while later: “Okay. Tell her I hope everything will be alright.”
Yarden heard the boarding announcement for his flight. He hurriedly replied with an “OK” and
dragged his mini suitcase onto the plane.
At the foot of Riven Group’s building.
After Anaya sent the message, Hearst leaned against the car and asked her, “So?”
“I got stood up. Let’s go.”
Anaya owed Hearst a meal. Just now, Hearst asked her out. Anaya had wanted to reject Hearst because she thought she would have lunch with Yarden, but Yarden suddenly had to go home.
Yarden left in such a hurry. His grandma’s condition must be serious.
But Anaya hoped there was nothing serious
The restaurant that Hearst took her to today was still Cosette Restaurant
Their table was at the same place as last time. It was by the window and favored by natural light. If
one looked out the window, one could see the forest park not far away.
“Don’t tell me you’ve bought this table.”
It was difficult to make a reservation at Cosette Restaurant. Hearst had taken her here twice, and it
was the same table both times. It was a bit too much of a coincidence.
Hearst lowered his eyes to look at the menu. “No,” he said.
He had only bought this whole place.
After ordering, Hearst poured water for her and asked, “Who stood you up?”
Hearst paused as he poured water. “I see…”
Anaya continued, “I heard that his grandmother accidentally hurt her leg. I don’t know if she is alright.
Adams was in poor health, so Anaya tended to pay more attention to this kind of thing.
Hearst handed her a glass of water with a smile. “She should be fine.”
“I hope so.”
The Maltz Group
Alex ordered lunch for Joshua and sent it to the office. After entering the door, he saw Joshua
staring at his phone.
Alex thought that his boss was dealing with something important, so he didn’t disturb Joshua. He
put down Joshua’s lunch and was ready to leave.
Joshua suddenly called out to him, “Get someone to remove the trending topic on the Internet.”
Joshua was busy with work and rarely paid attention to the gossip news on the Internet.
It was only at noon that Joshua heard from Robin that he and Anaya had become a trending topic.
Recently, nothing good had happened between him and Anaya. Before Joshua saw the news, he had a hunch that it would not be anything good
As expected, when he logged on to Twitter, he only saw very nasty reports.
In the comment section of the reports, half of the comments were criticizing him and Lexie, and
the other half were saying how cute Anaya and Hearst looked together. They said that the two both had gorgeous faces and were perfect for each other.
How could that gigolo compare with him?
He was better looking and was a better fit for Anaya…
Joshua suddenly came back to his senses.
What was he thinking?
Joshua frowned and did not want to think further.
Recently, some new recruits had joined the Secretary Department. Alex had to guide them and also do his work. He was on the run all the time. He did not have time to read gossip news.
Alex asked cautiously, “Which day’s trending topics are you talking about?”
“Every topic that is about me and Anaya!” Joshua’s veins popped out of his forehead.
Alex hurriedly nodded. After he left, he took out his phone and glanced at it.
Gee, his boss was roundly condemned on the Internet!
Alex kinda wanted to join them and chastise Joshua.
Forget it. If he really did, he would be out of jobs forever.
Alex kicked this dangerous idea out of his head and hurriedly called someone to remove the
After lunch Hearst sent Anaya back to the company before returning to Prudential Group.
Samuel was waiting for him in the office.
As soon as Hearst entered the door, Samuel stood up from the sofa. “Hearst, Joshua wants to remove the trending topics. Alex has contacted Twitter. They are willing to pay a high price.”
Hearst took off his blazer and put it over the leather seat. He said indifferently, “No matter how much he pays, we will pay double.”
“How long do you want to keep them trending?” Samuel was prepared to contact Twitter,
“Do you want me to buy some trolls to roast Joshua? I feel that those netizens are too gentle.”
Samuel knew Hearst well. Since Hearst did not refuse, it meant that he agreed.
“Great. I’ll get you the worst trolls and roast the shit out of Joshua.”
Samuel couldn’t help but use vulgar language. Hearst glanced at him. Samuel rubbed his nose and went to do his work.
Alex contacted Twitter and raised their offer several times, but they couldn’t make Twitter remove
the trending topics.
The person in charge probably felt sorry for Alex and kindly told him, “The higher-ups have said that no matter how much you pay to remove the trending topics, someone will pay double to keep them there. You’d better stop wasting your time.”
When Alex received the news, cold sweat appeared on his forehead.
If Joshua knew about this, he would definitely go mad.
Alex hesitated for a while before knocking on the door to Joshua’s office and walking in.
Joshua was still using his phone. Alex was not sure if Joshua was scrolling through the news about the trending topics. Just as he was about to speak, Joshua asked, “Why am I still the number one trending topic?”
Alex wiped his cold sweat. “It seems that someone is messing with you. No matter how much we offer, they will pay double to keep it there. So I can’t get this trending topic removed…
Who would waste so much money to do such boring things?
Anaya was the first name that popped into Joshua’s head.
Anaya hated his guts Seeing so many people on the Internet condemning him, Anaya must be
ecstatic. She surely didn’t want to lay him off like this.
She was really determined to be his enemy!
Joshua did not speak for a long time. Alex tentatively asked, “Mr. Maltz, are we still removing this trending topic?
“Let it be.”
He knew that Anaya was very stubborn.
If Anaya made up her mind to mess with him, neither of them would be the winner if Joshua chose to fight her till the end. They would only make the middleman earn a large sum of money.
Now that the Maltz family had gained a firm foothold, a little bit of gossip about him would not
affect their stock prices at all.
Alex heaved a sigh of relief and left the office.
The news about the business party had trended for two days. Even Anaya was stunned.
Were the netizens so enthusiastic in criticizing that scumbag and home wrecker?
“Anaya, what are you looking at?”
Adams called out to Anaya. Anaya came back to her senses and put down her phone. “Some
Adams had recovered a lot over the past two days, and he would be able to get out of bed and
walk again soon.
If not for Frank, Adams would be able to work and live like a healthy person now.
Thinking of what had happened at the birthday party that night, Anaya still felt scared.
If she had not learned how to perform CPR in her previous life, or if the ambulance had been late.
then she would have lost the last of her family.
Adams was her only family now, and she must not lose him no matter what.
“How does Frank’s case go?”
The first trial is over, and the sentence is life imprisonment. Frank filed an appeal and wanted a
lighter sentence. I will try to pressure the court to end this matter as soon as possible.”
Adarns nodded. “How is the company?”
“Everything is fine Get beller soon When you are discharged from the hospital, come back and take over the company Then I’ll be free and able to travel the world with Aracely.”
“You are so cruel. I am already so old, and yet you still want me to work…
Anava staved at the hospital until seven o’clock in the evening. When she arrived at the foot of her apartment, Anaya received a call from the private detective who told Anaya that he had gotten the evidence on Darren and Alyson.
The two were indeed seeing each other during this period of time. They had even stayed at a hotel together, and there was also a medical certificate for Alyson’s infertility.
