As her thoughts began to wander, she suddenly received a call from Zachary.
Charlotte immediately tensed up. She carefully answered the phone after clearing her throat. “Hello?”
“What are you up to?”
The man sounded as frigid as usual despite being the one to make the call.
“I’m just spacing out.” She lay down on the couch before she asked, “Is something the matter?”
“I’ll come back and take care of your resignation,” Zachary remarked professionally.
“Oh. That’s very kind of you. Thank you, Mr. Nacht,” she replied carefully.
“Do you not have anything to tell me?”
She pondered for a moment before answering, “Good night.”
The conversation fell silent, and the man hung up a few seconds later.
She didn’t know what to think. What should I have told him?
Whether or not he’s actually Gigolo, he probably already knows what Luna did at the company.
But so what if he does?
Should I be complaining to him about it and asking him to help me?
You’re the one I’m most afraid of, Mr. Nacht!
I’d have so much less to think about if you weren’t involved.
Charlotte tossed and turned in bed, unable to fall asleep. A day had already passed, and she still didn’t know how to deal with the mother-daughter duo who were trying to cause trouble for her.
Should I really marry someone?
Zachary will kill me if I do, won’t he?
The night passed before she even realized it.
Her phone suddenly rang while she was in a slumber. “Hello?” she asked, her eyes remaining shut.
“Charlotte! Have you seen the news?” Lily sounded incredibly excited.
Still in a daze, Charlotte thought the woman was talking about yesterday’s news.
“Pictures of you and Mr. Sterling are all over the Internet now,” Lily exclaimed. “There are even videos of your car sex. Oh, God! What a steamy couple you both are!”
That comment got Charlotte to freeze for a moment. “Car sex? What are you talking about?” she asked in bewilderment.
“The paparazzi took pictures of what you did in the car with Mr. Sterling last night! You were at the beach. It’s all over the Internet now, and everyone at work has seen it.”
Charlotte was dumbstruck. Could it have been Hector and Helena?
How am I part of all this?
“I just heard that the company might fire you, but that’s fine. You have Mr. Sterling, so you won’t have to worry about anything for the rest of your life!”
“That’s not it, Lily—”
“You’re not bad at all, Charlotte! I blushed so hard watching that video. Hahaha! I just sent you the link. Have a look at it.”
Lily was in exceptionally high spirits as though she was talking about the best news in the world.
As Charlotte tapped on the link, her jaw dropped.
A secret hookup between Sterling Group president and his mistress!
The article included photos of a couple dining and being affectionate with each other inside a private room at The Limetree. There were even photos of them making out inside the elevator.
The strangest thing was that Hector had been photographed clearly in every photo, whereas Helena’s face was completely indiscernible. All that could be seen were her hair, body, and clothes.
Moreover, the article stated that the woman inside the pictures was a minor secretary from Divine Corporation called Ms. Windt.
Who else could this be referring to?
Charlotte was at a complete loss for words. That woman is clearly Helena! Why are they saying it’s me?
Even if no one else has any idea, whoever took the photos should’ve known!
Charlotte frantically tapped on the next link.
Hector Sterling gets steamy with his mistress in a car by the beach!
On top of more videos and pictures, the entire ordeal had also been described in detail.
The video showed Hector sitting on the passenger seat with the female lead riding him on top. The two looked utterly intoxicated.
The man’s face and body were clearly visible, but again, the woman’s features were unrecognizable.
Only Charlotte knew it was Helena.
Yet, all the news articles pointed to a little secretary from Divine Corporation.
Some even revealed the female lead’s real name—Charlotte Windt!
