Chapter 702 Getting Her Revenge
Victoria’s eyes went wide as she stared at Sebastian in shock.
What? This is all a misunderstanding?
Although Victoria was feeling a little guilty, she decided to follow through with her act when she saw Emilia’s despicable face.
“I called you and told you to come pick me up earlier, but you said no. So, what are you doing here now? Are you messing around with me?”
Victoria broke free from Sebastian’s embrace. She then grabbed Emilia’s phone and asked, “What’s the password? Tell me!”
Emilia’s heart was filled with anger as she glared at Victoria.
As if beating me up in public wasn’t bad enough, she now wants to go through my phone? Am I really that much of a pushover?
Emilia reached out to snatch her phone back, only to have Victoria hold it in front of her face.
Just like that, Victoria easily unlocked the phone using its facial recognition feature.
Realizing that she was no match for Victoria, Emilia shifted her attention toward Sebastian instead. “Hey, Sebastian! Your girlfriend has crossed the line here! Shouldn’t you do something about her?”
She figured that Sebastian and Victoria had kept their relationship a secret because they didn’t want the members of the Lesley family to find out.
Victoria exclaimed while forcefully tossing the phone at Emilia’s chest. “You wouldn’t be scared of letting someone go through your phone if you didn’t do anything wrong! Come at me if you’ve got what it takes! Leave my man alone! So what if I went through your phone, huh? Don’t like it? Then sue me!”
Victoria’s arrogant and disdainful attitude left Emilia completely speechless.
“Oh, I forgot! You’re no longer the famous actress in the entertainment industry. You’re only good for entertaining people over drinks! You can’t even afford a lawyer with that little amount of money you’ve got! You know what? I’ll let you off the hook this time, but you’d better stay the f*ck away from my man, or things are going to get really ugly for you!”
The people passing by were all staring at the three of them, but Sebastian wasn’t bothered in the slightest. He knew that Victoria was doing this to avenge Christina and put an end to the awkward situation, so he didn’t do anything to stop her.
While Victoria did go a little overboard by going through Emilia’s phone, it could allow them to uncover some of her secrets.
Victoria then walked up to Sebastian, flashed him a reassuring look, and dragged him into the car.
“Argh! F*ck you, Victoria! I’ll kill you for sure!” Emilia screamed furiously in front of the bar while watching the two of them speed off into the distance.
Her violent outburst and vicious expression were so scary that the onlookers backed away instantly.
As Sebastian parked the car by the river, Victoria cautiously observed his expression before mustering the
courage to nuzzle against him.
“You’re not mad at me anymore, are you, Seb?”
eyes, “No, but please don’t act so rashly
Sebastian turned toward her and replied with a gentle look in his again next time. I was also at fault for not seeing your text message in time.”
Like a child who had gotten her candy, Victoria happily threw herself into his arms and hugged his waist tightly.
“I’m so glad you’re not mad at me anymore! I didn’t know you were working. The sight of another woman touching you got me so worked up that I couldn’t keep my emotions under control.”
It wouldn’t even be an overstatement to say that Victoria had thought of where she would bury Emilia’s body when she saw her touch Sebastian earlier.
Sebastian was like oxygen to Victoria, and she loved him so much that she couldn’t imagine how life would be without him.
“Mr. Hadley wanted me to keep an eye on her.” Sebastian then proceeded to give her a summary of what happened earlier that day before asking, “Did you manage to find anything when going through her phone?”
“Yes, I did. I saw Yerek’s phone number in her call log. Do you think he’s the mastermind who told Emilia to kill Anya?” Victoria replied after giving it some thought.
“That’s not enough to prove anything. Come on; I’ll send you home,” Sebastian said.
“It’s so late now, Seb. Are you going to continue tailing Emilia? That wound I left on her face will take at least three to five days to heal, so she’ll most likely go home to lie low. I don’t want to go home so soon, Seb!”
Sebastian let out a sigh as he couldn’t say no to Victoria’s pleas. “We’ll go grab supper, then.”
Victoria’s eyes lit up instantly when she heard that, and she began searching for restaurants on her phone.
While she was distracted, Sebastian quickly informed his subordinates to help keep an eye on Emilia.
Instead of heading home immediately after leaving the bar, Emilia went to see Yerek at his house.
Yerek was frozen in shock when he opened the door and saw the wounds on Emilia’s body. He then quickly pulled her inside and asked with a frown, “Didn’t we agree to only contact each other through the phone?”
Emilia bit down on her lip. “You think I want to come see you like this? I had no choice, okay?”
“What’s with those injuries of yours?” Yerek asked while massaging his aching forehead.
Emilia’s eyes were filled with hatred the moment she heard that. “It was Victoria! She and Sebastian are a couple!”
Yerek arched an eyebrow at her in response. “Victoria and Sebastian are dating? You’re not making this up, are you?”
Why would Victoria give up on marrying wealthy men for Nathaniel’s lapdog? It just sounds like a joke, no matter how you look at it!
“I heard it from Victoria herself. Sebastian was there when she said it, and he didn’t deny it either. Given how intimate they were with each other, I’d say it’s definitely true. You could have someone look into this if you don’t believe me,” Emilia replied.
Yerek narrowed his eyes and took a closer look at Emilia’s wounds. That was when he kind of figured out how she got injured.
Hmph… This woman doesn’t know how to keep her hands to herself!
With that in mind, Yerek said indifferently, “Got it. You should hurry on home now.”
Emilia was hoping that Yerek would offer to avenge her, so seeing his indifferent reaction frustrated her to no end. “Sebastian is Nathaniel’s right–hand man, and Victoria is Christina’s junior. It’s most likely Christina and Nathaniel who helped get them together. The members of the Lesley family are bound to get mad at Christina if they find out about this. Don’t you want to reclaim Gibson Corporation?”
Back then, Yerek had wanted Gibson Corporation so badly that he would even have dreams about it. Having received the assets that Nigel had transferred overseas, however, he could do just fine without Gibson Corporation.
Even so, he still wanted to get his revenge on Christina and Nathaniel, no matter how long it would take.
Once I gain enough power, I will surely be able to crush those two with ease! I can’t expect much from Emilia because ofhow short–sighted she is, but I can’t risk letting her become a liability to me either. Right now, I need to convert those assets into cash and keep a low profile as I carry out my plans.
“Victoria is not someone you can afford to mess with. The Lesley family prefers to get rid of pesky busybodies first before dealing with their internal affairs.”
If Emilia were smart, she would know better than to cause a scene with this incident. Alas, Yerek had underestimated her hatred toward Christina.
Emilia contacted some paparazzi immediately after leaving Yerek’s condominium unit and told them about her findings.
Nathaniel was the first to receive word about the news
“Should we have someone suppress the news, Mr. Hadley?”
