“Your actions earlier put me in danger, so I’m going to file a police report. I don’t care if you’re not given punishments.”
Christina paused momentarily, her eyes gleaming when she looked up. “What matters the most is that you guys will have criminal records for causing trouble.”
The others grew flustered in an instant..
The competition was extremely important to both Nancy and Margaret. They would be in deep trouble if the police got involved and their mentor were to look into it.
Their mentor, Zele, was someone who valued her dignity. If she learned about their embarrassing act, their apprenticeship could be revoked.
All of a sudden, the other designers panicked. Having a criminal record could affect their future. More. importantly, Christina’s serious expression told them she was not joking.
No one would be willing to risk their careers over a trivial matter.
Given no choice, Nancy tried getting Selena’s help. “Ms. Selena, I think Christina’s going a little overboard. There’s no need to go that far and make a police report, right?”
We’re still in the middle of the competition. It’ll get delayed if a police report is made. Ms. Selena cares a lot about this competition. Surely she’ll say something to make the competition go smoothly.
“She’s right, Ms. Selena. Don’t you think Christina’s going a little too far?” Margaret chimed in. She must want to resolve this matter as soon as possible.
Christina said nothing. Her expression darkened as her gaze turned icy.
Looking as calm as ever, Selena smiled. “How could I speak on behalf of Christina when I’m not the victim? I’m not the one you should be asking if you don’t want to go to the police station. You should be asking for Christina’s forgiveness instead.”
I have no right to decide for Christina.
Meanwhile, Christina’s gaze glimmered when she heard Selena’s words. Never did she expect the latter to stand on her side.
Now that Christina had Selena’s support, she was even more determined to pursue the matter.
Several designers shuddered, frightened and at a loss for what to do. At that moment, they felt like their future was hanging by a thread and could be ruined at any time.
Margaret balled her fists so tightly that her fingernails almost snapped. “Tell us, Christina. What do we need to do so that you won’t report us?”
The people behind her gazed at Christina, nodding earnestly. At that point, they would do anything as long as they did not have to go to the police station.
Narrowing her eyes, Christina stared at the women who gazed at her eagerly. “I was locked outside for over two hours. In return, you should stay out there for three hours. That way, we’ll be even.”
What? Stand out there for three hours? We’ll freeze!
Nancy’s heart flooded with anger, for she thought the demand was outrageous. “Don’t push it! You were only out there for over two hours.”
It’s freezing outside, and we’re in our pajamas. We’ll catch a cold from the strong wind. She’s deliberately making things difficult for us.
Christina’s brow twitched. “I’m not forcing you to do it. It’s up to you.”
If they don’t do it, I’ll make a police report to have these vicious women arrested.
After hesitating for a moment, the others turned and exited the mansion. None of them wanted to get arrested.
At the same time, both Nancy and Margaret exchanged glances before biting the bullet and walking out. They inhaled sharply as the icy wind blew. It made them shiver.
In an instant, their body temperature dropped drastically, as if they were covered in ice.
“It’s so cold. How did Christina stay out here for so long?” Nancy complained, her voice becoming softer…
They were finally suffering the consequences of locking Christina out of the mansion in such cold weather, and that did not feel good.
The women’s faces flushed with embarrassment.
Alas, the production team treated them equally and provided them with no help. The former simply broadcasted the scene with a drone.
The sight of the skinny figures standing in the courtyard late at night with the freezing wind blowing against their bodies made them look rather pitiful.
However, everyone in the comments section only said the women got what they deserved.
One comment read: Nice one, Christina! That’s how you should take revenge!
Selena, on the other hand, did not comment on the outcome. She simply looked at Christina calmly. saying. “Get some rest. You’re entering the finals tomorrow morning. I hope you won’t disappoint me.”
Christina was still shivering from the cold, but her eyes were sparkling with determination. “Thank you for your concern, Ms. Selena. I’ll do my best.”
Selena’s gaze on the young lady was filled with admiration. After flashing a smile, the former walked away.
As she walked out of the mansion, she noticed the shivering women. To their dismay, she merely sighed. and walked away.
Upon arriving at the second floor, Christina removed the mop from the door handle.
The moment she pushed the door open, she saw a flustered-looking Benjamin, his eyes brimming with tears. He looked pitiful.
Perhaps it was his behavior that leaned more to the feminine side that made Christina regard him as someone of the same gender.
“Are you okay, Christina? Those women are crazy. They locked me inside and stopped me from opening the door for you,” Benjamin explained in a panic. After all, he had been locked up for over two hours. He
could not help but wonder how Christina survived the weather.
Chuckling, Christina assured him, “I’m fine.”
“How are you fine? Your nose is red!” Benjamin found a random fancy scarf and wrapped it around her neck. Only then did he scan the surroundings. “Where did those crazy women go?”
That was when Christina roughly explained the entire situation. “They’re still out there in the cold.”
After listening to the story. Benjamin clapped and cheered, “You’re incredible, Christina. I’ve got to take a picture of their pathetic looks.”
“What’s the use of taking such pictures? I’m going to get some sleep.”
Christina let out a few yawns. After the torturous hours, all she wanted to do was bury herself under the covers and sleep until she was satisfied.
Benjamin turned around to grab a coat before pushing her into her room. “I must take a picture of this so I can look at it whenever I’m feeling down. Go get some rest and don’t bother about me.”
After pushing her into the room, he hurried downstairs.
One would think he had a deep grudge against those women if they saw the gleeful smirk on his face.
Shutting the door, Christina climbed into bed and fell asleep with no care in the world.
In the meantime, the broadcast went viral. In fact, the number of viewers did not drop even after midnight.
Madison, who was in the office in Jadeborough, was elated to see Christina kicked out of the mansion.
She supported the other women inwardly, hoping Christina would fall sick from their prank.
However, the more Madison watched, the more she realized something was off. Not only did Christina break the door down, but those women were also chased out of the mansion.
Madison’s gaze then shifted to the protestors outside the gate. Why are they still out there in the cold? Is there another reason for that?
Just as she was trying to figure it out, her phone rang.
“Come to my office.”
