Chapter 230 Take The Money And Let It Go
David’s tone was casual. “I have been to Phareborough. Perhaps we have met there before?”
At that, Rachel’s entire being froze.
Her heart, however, still pounded rapidly.
She stared unblinkingly at the man in front of her as if trying to discern more information through his eyes.
“What is wrong?” David lifted her chin with his fingertips, a faint smile with a hint of indifference on his lips.
Rachel’s eyelashes fluttered slightly as she leaned against David’s shoulder again.
In that instant.
An absurd thought had struck her.
However, she did not dare to act rashly without confirmation, for she was worried that she would be disappointed again.
David tucked her hair behind her ear, his fingers slightly bending as he did so. “Are you going to let the Smith family go just like that?”
At that, Rachel’s eyes flickered meaningfully, and her hand gently stroked the phone she held. “It is not that simple.”
The Smith family may have been the one who started this game, but whether the game could end and when it would end was up to Rachel Grey!
When Louis got home, he received a call from Olivia.
Her tone dripped with gratitude as she spoke. “Louis, thank you for everything you have done for me.”
The Internet was currently in an uproar due to those inappropriate photographs of Rachel Grey. There was almost no need for instigation or anyone to guide public opinion, for the comments section was already filled with criticisms of Rachel Grey.
The comments section was overflowing with all kinds of vicious and mean
The post about her relationship with Louis also ceased to be a center of
attraction because of that, and she seized the opportunity to remove that topic.
She was naturally happy that Rachel Grey’s reputation had been ruined.
However, the most gratifying thing was that Louis did not hesitate to expose Rachel’s privacy to protect her.
As expected, this woman was no match for her at all!
She did not even need to take the initiative to attack, for Rachel Grey had already been defeated.
The most painful thing in the world was the person she once deeply loved giving her a mortal blow, and she believed that Rachel now knew what
torture that was.
Louis found himself at a loss for words at Olivia’s words.
“Louis, my father is very grateful for everything you have done for me, so he wants to invite you over for a meal so he can thank you in person.” Olivial
paused for a moment. “So when will you be free?”
Louis frowned imperceptibly. “I have a lot of work to deal with recently. How about when I am done with them?”
“Sure.” Olivia’s tone was gentle and considerate. “No matter how busy you. are, you must still take good care of yourself. Otherwise, my heart will ache.”
After he hung up, he threw the phone on the sofa, and then he also sank onto the sofa exhaustedly.
When Mrs. Smith walked down from the room on the second floor, she saw Louis slumped on the sofa.
She could not help but become anxious. “How is it? Is the matter settled?”
Louis‘ countenance was expressionless. “She refused to forgive and let it go.”
The look on Mrs. Smith’s face was one of scorn. “She prefers a harsh
punishment to our gentle offer! Does she think that the Smith family will be afraid of her? Now that something like this has happened, why does she not just take the money and let it go? Why must she put on airs? Now that the commotion on the Internet is getting increasingly intense, is she still hoping that her backer will help her?”
“So you chose to stand by and do nothing?” A rich and aged voice demanded
at the door.
