Chapter 86 An Amusing Scene
Gareth’s expression darkened. Vincent noticed it and swept his eyes behind them.
Will and Elisa were walking towards them, smiling and chatting away.
Vincent’s mouth twitched. “Your ex seems restless.”
Gareth glared at them.
Will and Elisa noticed him. Will began to smile, but Gareth ignored him and walked into the courtroom.
Vincent looked at Elisa and flipped her off as he followed Gareth in.
Will smiled lightly and peeked at Elisa.
Elisa headed in without a word.
As Gareth sat in the spot for the defendant, he looked up at the nameplate opposite him. He curled his lip.
Vincent raised his head. “Christ, since when has Elisa Benett been a lawyer?!”
Gareth clenched his jaw.
“Could it be that Will Darcey sued you just to get on your nerves? He wanted you to see how chummy the two of them are.”
Gareth swallowed his anger. “It can’t be.”
“It can’t be?” Vincent laughed. “Why would he appoint her to represent him then? Give me a break.”
Gareth seethed in his seat.
Vincent clicked his tongue. “She must have really wanted to get your attention very badly to go to such lengths. And Will Darcey, isn’t this too immature of him? If word got out that he appointed your ex-wife as his lawyer, wouldn’t he get backlashed? Maybe his stocks might even plummet then.”
Vincent seemed to be more excited by the moment.
Gareth’s face darkened.
The seats were filled up as the audience entered, curious about the lawyers appointed by both sides.
When they saw Elisa’s nameplate, they felt astonished and began to discuss it among themselves.
They opened their eyes wide as Elisa entered the room with Will and sat in the plaintiff’s seat. It seemed that the Elisa Benett on the nameplate was the same person they thought of. They stared in shock.
Rachel, sitting among the audience, stared in shock. “My God! Mr. Darcey appointed Elisa to represent him?! My goodness! She’s going against Vincent Shane. What a valuable experience!”
A smile began to form on Charli’s lips. “Let’s watch first.”
Rachel felt bitter. When she came earlier, she happened to run into Charli. They were able to snag the front seats thanks to Charli.
The atmosphere in the courtroom was solemn.
When the judge entered, everyone in the room stood in their spots. No one dared to speak in the heavy atmosphere. They settled into their seats as the judge sat in his place.
The trial began.
A speaker began presenting the case briefly as the start of the trial.
The audience fixed their eyes on the stage. Although the lawyers hadn’t started debating their cases, the audience was eagerly anticipating it.
After all, things were different from their expectations. It turned out that Will Darcey’s lawyer was Gareth Wickam’s ex-wife! Mr. Wickam’s death stare was a sight to behold. No one would be able to take such an insult to the face.
The audience were amused by the scene.
