Chapter 117 She Is Not Iris
“Get your @ss in here!”
Linda’s heart sank for a moment. Who… Is he talking to on the phone? His furious tone gave her goose bumps.
She hesitated briefly before deciding to walk to the corner and check on him.
She had hardly hidden herself when Thomas showed up at Gareth’s office and knocked on the door.
Linda caught sight of Thomas’ unsettled look as he entered the room.
She mustered her courage and crept toward the office, thinking to herself that she must find the answers to her questions.
She was clever enough not to get too close to the office.
“Mr. Wickam, I’m sorry.” Thomas knew he was in the wrong before Gareth could even open his mouth.
Gareth stared at him coldly, “One more time, Thomas, and you will be kicked out!”
Thomas shot his back straight, “Yes, I’ll never let anyone into your office again.”
Linda gasped at that.
It was because of her!
Linda became blue in the face!
She could hardly breathe as she clutched the purse in her hands so hard that her fingertips turned pale.
Why, why is Garry treating me like this?!
It was not that long ago when he would treat her like a queen, making sure that she always felt loved. But… Why does he hate me now?
She was still looking for the answers to her questions when Gareth spoke again. “Any news of Elisa?”
Linda gritted her teeth fiercely!
Doesn’t he hate Elisa Benett? But why…?!
Linda raised her hand and punched the wall angrily!
Thomas was about to respond when he realized something was not right.
But Linda quickly came to her senses and fled the area before anyone could catch her.
In the office.
Thomas continued courteously, “Based on what I can find, she and Iris don’t seem to be the same person.”
Gareth lifted his eyes with a frown, “Not the same?”
Thomas shook his head confusedly, “I… I’m not sure, but the documents say that Iris isn’t that young. Other sources told me that Iris and Ms. Benett are great friends, so she must’ve known that Mr. Shane was going to testify in court and prepared accordingly to give Ms. Benett an edge.”
Gareth furrowed his brows and stayed silent.
Thomas cleared his throat, “Mr. Wickam, I will verify the sources before deciding whether this is true.”
Gareth kept the same apathetic expression as he lifted the pen to sign the papers. “Forget about it.” He said quietly.
This caught Thomas by surprise, but he chose not to say a word and hummed in acknowledgement before leaving the office.
Gareth stayed in his seat. He held the pen in the air for quite some time but could not bring himself to sign the papers. All he could think about was how Elisa looked in court.
She was elegant like a queen, and there was an indescribable air to her – it somehow felt like she ruled the world.
Everything she had said was on point, and it put Vincent, who was known to be eloquent, at a loss for words.
The Elisa that was present in court must be the same person as Iris.
He had been tipped off earlier, so he sent his men to investigate it. Now that he had found out about the false identity, he was even more confident that Elisa and Iris were indeed one and the same person.
An hour later.
Linda reached home.
Rose was surprised to see Linda home. “Hey silly, it’s not even lunch time, what are you doing here?”
Linda looked as if she was going to break down anytime now. Rose was going to tell her something else, but upon noticing her expression, she asked, “What happened? Was he not at work?”
