Chapter 79 The Men Are Ruthless
“Have you been living under a rock?! Just look up Mr. Wickam and Elisa on Weibo, their photos are all over the place. They’re No.1 on the trending page,” she scolded. “Albert really is powerful with his connections. He’s not someone from the entertainment industry but manages to dominate the trending page. He’s clever in his resources! Sigh…”
Jennifer was unashamed to announce this in front of the man from the corner of her eye… Albert merely focused on the computer files and ignored her commentary.
Jennifer couldn’t help but speak again, “Albert, didn’t you hear what I said? Elisa is a whore!”
Albert glanced up at her calmly, “Are you done?”
Jennifer: “… Well! Elisa She…”
Jennifer was riled up to continue her gossip but her arm was grabbed by Olivia Walker. She whispered, “Jennifer, that is enough.”
Olivia gestured to the door where Elisa was standing.
Jennifer just ignored her and pushed aside Olivia’s arm. She stood with a spontaneity that her chair dragged across the floor.
“Albert, you are absolutely oaf! I have been here this whole time, sitting across you for all these years, yet you never make the effort to look at me. Instead, you actively seek out loose women like Elisa! Do you not care about your social standing?!”
Albert grimaced from Jennifer’s taunts and was about to say something but was saved by the individual who stepped forward.
He smiled and quipped, “Elisa, you’re back! Ignore Jennifer, she’s spouting nonsense here.”
Elisa merely shook her head. Before she could speak, Jennifer intervened, “Do you think I’m intimidated by someone like Elisa?! She’s busy trying to seduce her father-in-law instead of being at work, so what can she do? Is she afraid of confrontation with her actions in plain sight?!”
Apparently, there were five other colleagues to back up Elisa’s alibi, and Olivia was trying to remind her. However, Jennifer seemed to be unaware of this and kept making a fool of herself…
Elisa chuckled and conceded, “I’m not afraid of confrontation. Everyone here is a lawyer, so they should be well aware of the consequences of slandering an individual.”
Jennifer changed her beat and turned around to face Elisa. When she realized that Elisa had been standing there for some time, she frowned. “If you are not afraid of confrontation as you claim, don’t just stand there silently!”
“Quietly?” Elisa grinned. “Two people announced that I’ve arrived, yet you still completely ignored them. How am I to blame?”
Jennifer was furious and gritted her teeth. “Elisa! Don’t you dare be bold! You seduced a man with a wife and that is a great sin! You can go to hell for all I care!”
Elisa sniggered and stepped forward towards her. Jennifer in her flustered state took a step back in response.
She was not wavered by Jennifer’s attacks. Elisa had an unflinching resolution to her that intimidated her opponents.
As Jennifer realized more and more about her mistake, her expression portrayed her panicked state. Elisa stared coldly at Jennifer as she failed to find her words.
“You know, I tend to steer clear of trouble. It’s not worth my time,” Elisa said. “but that doesn’t mean I stand idly by for insults. If I were to hear a squeak from you again, don’t blame me for what comes next. Just a reminder, that my men are ruthless.”
