Chapter 133 Fault Finding
But, then again, if he knew that Rachel Markee was her sister, how dare he cheat on her!
Currently, Ms. Iris does not hold the Benett family name. However, her relationship with the family was not completely severed. Mr. Benett still vouched for him; therefore, he must play his cards to not offend him.
Ben instinctually wiped his forehead from the cold sweat. “Ms. Iris, this is a complete misunderstanding. Truly. I will tear this contract and revoke any previous agreement with Ms. Rachel.”
Elisa smirked and affirmed, “If I were to be a defendant, Mr. Benett will have to cough up five hundred million.”
Ben gave an exasperated expression. “It’s my fault! Miss Rachel, I truly apologize for the things I’ve done. I was coerced!”
Rachel looked at Elisa in admiration.
Initially, Rachel deemed the situation unsalvageable. However, not only did Elisa manage to turn the tables in their favor, but Ben may also have to pay up to five hundred million as compensation.
Elisa smiled and parted her lips slightly. “Well, since this is all a huge misunderstanding, I won’t cause an altercation with Mr. Benett. However, I’ll be your lawyer and take over Mr. Benett’s lawsuit.”
Ben gleamed over this development and thanked her. “Thank you, Ms. Iris. Thank you!”
Elisa gave a smile. “I am willing to help, but you will only receive two million from this case. The rest is considered my commission. Do you have any objections?”
Ben was shocked. The case had lost four hundred million, yet she was willing to provide two million.
When Ben Lee was scouring for lawyers to back his case, no one dared to claim that the money would be returned.
Moreover, claiming an additional two million from the initial amount. It was just impossible!
Although he was upset with his losses, he felt fortunate to meet Ms. Iris through this incident. This was worthwhile!
Seeing she was rarely someone who takes up a random case, it was sheer luck that she agreed to one from him!
Ben blurted, “Ms. Iris, I am fortunate enough to have you in my case! You can do whatever you wish! Do as you wish or sue whomever you think is worthwhile. I leave it all to you!”
Ben seemed filled with gratitude.
“Mr. Benett has heard my dilemma. I plan to compensate Rachel Markee with the remaining two million.”
“Iris, you…” Ben staggared.
Rachel was ecstatic. What a power move!
Elisa cautioned, “If you were to decline this offer, I will sue you in place for my sister-in-law. You then will have to pay five hundred million. However, I am providing a safe option, with no additional costs. Isn’t this wonderful? You remember how Mr. Benett is when he is angry, right? Think about it, no one will bother you in the future.”
Ben frowned. He could see that Elisa was doing this for the benefit of others.
However, Ben could not afford to pay another five hundred million. If Elisa were to fight for his case, he would be able to defeat his opponents.
Elisa noticed Ben’s hesitation and added, “Of course, since we are friends before this whole charade happened; if you have any difficulties concerning legal issues in the future, as long it does not break the law, I will gladly help.”
Ben was in glee. This was now considered a small loss to him. If he made connections with Elisa, it would be worthwhile.
And he wanted to file this case to demonstrate to everyone that he and Elisa got along well; no one would logically attempt to harm him in the future. Whatever the case, it was a nice offer.
“Ms. Iris, you are too kind. Do what you wish, I have no objections.”
Rachel was overjoyed. She really wanted to hug Elisa, there and then.
While they ate their food, the party was preoccupied with their individual thoughts. Ben prepared wine for the two ladies, but none of them drank.
As the time ran out, Rachel glanced at Ben and softly whispered, “Ben, Iris, and I have other things to do. We’ll finalize the contract tomorrow.”
“Of course! You’re busy, I should have known!’”
Ben looked eager like a dog, which amused them. Rachel really is relishing this newfound power over things. Nice!
Elisa smiled. She got up to leave.
Rachel followed suit, however… As soon the door was opened, they were approached with cameras left and right. A whole mob of reporters was outside.
Elisa froze and became exasperated by the size of the paparazzi.
Reporters seized the opportunity to interview Elisa as soon as word got out. Naturally, everyone congregated!
Someone started a live broadcast, which was instantaneously popular online!
Coincidentally, Linda was in a middle of a conversation with Rose Meek. She was busy scrolling online when the top headlines appeared on the screen. “Why on earth is Elisa being interviewed?” She growled.
