Eileen turned off her screen and gave Fia a hug.
“Once you’re discharged, I’ll take you to a candlelight dinner.”
Fia didn’t say anything. Sadness, disappointment, envy… She had a lot of bad emotions toward Esme.
And all of this was because of Conrad. Because she loved him.
“I’ll buy you roses and presents, okay?”
Eileen consoled her and placed her hand on Fia’s belly. “We can’t be sad for the child’s sake. You must protect yourself and your child.”
She regretted showing Fia the picture.
If she had known, she would have confronted Conrad and Esme
instead of showing it to Fia.
“I’m so sorry, Fia.”
“This has nothing to do with you, Eileen. I know you’re doing this for my own good because you’re worried that I’m being deceived.”
Fia tried her best to force a smile and said, “Eileen, after all of this, I don’t have hope that my marriage will end in happiness now. You
have to work hard.”
Eileen frowned and said, “I… I’m not doing that well either. But we
have to get it together and beat the people who want to see us give up.”
Just then, Eileen’s phone rang.
It was her assistant, Lyn. She turned around and took the call, her face slowly turning white.
When Fia saw her face turn pale after receiving the call, she asked worryingly, “What happened?”
“It’s fine. It’s about work. Someone took my role as the female lead in one of the shows that I’m supposed to star in.”
“Then go look for help so you can get your role back.”
“Yeah. Rest well. Don’t look at your phone and just lie down and rest. I’ll treat you to a candlelight dinner later!”
“Sure!” Fia smiled. To her, Eileen’s care was like a ray of light in the darkness.
Eileen wore her hat and put on her mask, and then walked out of the ward. She didn’t expect to be surrounded the moment she walked out, but she was. They were all media reporters.
“Ms. Reid, can you explain the video on the internet of you and your
“Ms. Reid, are you your boss‘ mistress?”
“No wonder you got popular so quickly! It’s because of Mr. Maxwell!”
Eileen looked at all the reporters who were like rabid dogs through her sunglasses. They kept on asking all the vile questions without giving her a chance to breathe or answer the questions.
But she knew that there was nothing left for her to explain.
That video was enough to explain everything. All her effort was for nothing because now everyone would think that her success was due to her sleeping with her boss!
When she came to visit Fia, she hid her tracks and didn’t see anyone. Seeing so many reporters waiting here, it was obvious that someone familiar with her knew that she would come and had prepared this trap for her.
“Homewrecker,” she mumbled. She wished she could tear Esme apart. Not only did she have time to seduce Conrad, she even had the time to set up a trap for her.
Fia had just gone to the washroom and wanted to check the time on her phone. And that was how she saw Eileen and Victor on tonight’s hot searches. Everyone was cursing Eileen.
She wanted to give Eileen a call. But when she remembered how her expression suddenly changed after picking up that call, she already knew that it was because of this.
She had a bad feeling. She immediately opened the door to her ward and saw Eileen being surrounded. They kept on questioning her and they even pushed her. Eileen had fallen down a few times.
“Eileen!” Fia shouted, but Eileen couldn’t hear her at all.
She looked around anxiously and spotted a fire extinguisher. She grabbed it and blasted the group with it.
The reporters around Eileen were stunned. When there was an opening, she quickly rushed over, pulled Eileen into her ward, and
locked the door.
