Chapter 99 She Isn’t That Ambitious “Amaid in my family wanted to be a star, so she pretended to be my wise. The reason is so simple. Can’t you all figure it out?”
What Gilbert said caused an uproar again.
Kisa still clutched the corner of her coat and stared at him incredulously, her scarlet eyes welling up. In her teary eyes, she saw the side of the man’s cold, heartless face. ‘He is putting all the blame on me and letting the media grill and shaine me, isn’t he?’ “Miss Watson, is what Mr. Kooper said true?” “If what Mr. Kooper said is true, then what is Howard’s relationship with you?” “Do you want to hype Howard up besides yourself by staging such a show?” “Or is it that Howard and you are working together and staging this act with the purpose of hyping each other up?” “Miss Watson, may I ask if Howard and you are having an affair? You impersonated Mrs. Kooper to hype Howard up, didn’t you?”
The reporters down the stage, one by one, aggressively hurled questions at her. Kisa felt her head buzzing and almost broke down. But Gilbert just watched the whole thing indifferently.
At that moment, Howard shouted at the reporters, “Stop hounding her! She is just a weak, skinny, poor woman. This news event is just an accident. She didn’t plan it at all. She isn’t that ambitious.” As Howard came to her defense, the reporters turned their attention to him again.
“Howard, is it true that you have an affair with Miss Watson, as the rumors say, since you have been defending her so ardently?” “Then all this drama that she has been staging is actually for you, right?”
Howard replied flatly, “It is just a rumor. I know Miss Watson, but there is nothing hanky panky between us. I didn’t even know that the media would be there to take pictures of us when I saved her in the snow. There is no hype.”
“Then how could it be such a coincidence?”
“Absolutely. It has been confirmed that the press captured the moment because Miss Watson had leaked it to the media in advance. With your relationship with Miss Watson, no one would believe you if you said you weren’t involved in this incident.”
Facing the reporters’ questions, Howard spread out his hands helplessly. “Since you all don’t believe me, let’s just assume that this incident is my doing. I had the reporters lying in wait at the scene in advance, and I did all the things alone. Please don’t disturb Miss Watson anymore. She is not feeling well.”
Gilbert stared at him with cold eyes, the hands on his knees slowly clenching. Davian saw this and sighed. ‘Mr. Kooper is really odd. He not only refuses to help Mrs. Kooper but also isn’t too happy when others come to Mrs. Kooper’s defense.”
Kisa looked at Howard in shock. She did not expect Howard, a public figure, to take all the blame in front of the media. The thought of her suspecting him before made her feel guilty. “That can’t be right, Howard. Someone has just testified that it was Miss Watson who leaked it to the media. So how can you say it was you now?” “Are you deliberately admitting that you did everything yourself in order to protect Miss Watson?”
“Howard, please answer.”
“Don’t ask him. It is me. It is all me.”
