At that moment, Helena’s phone rang. When she saw who the caller was, her face changed, and she immediately gave another hand signal.
The two bodyguards stopped in their tracks immediately.
“Michael!” Helena quickly took the call.
“Helena, are you with Charlotte?” Michael asked.
His question took Helena by surprise. She raised her head to look at Charlotte. Her eyes were cold, but her voice sounded sweet. “She told you about it?”
“Yes. Charlotte told me you asked her for lunch.” Michael happily continued, “Before I left, I told you to take care of her. You definitely did not let me down.”
“Of course, I have to take good care of your sweetheart.” Helena’s smile looked forced. “How is it over there? Is the weather in F Nation good?”
“It’s alright. Helena, Charlotte is alone there, and I am worried about her. If you find out that she is having any difficulties in work or life, do try to help her,” her brother requested.
“Sure, I understand.”
“Pass the phone and let me speak to her,” Michael asked.
“Okay.” With that, Helena pushed the phone to the other woman.
Charlotte walked over and answered the phone. Turning it to speaker mode, she greeted, “Michael!”
“Charlotte, where are you ladies eating?”
When Michael was speaking to Charlotte, he sounded extra gentle.
“At Silver Diamond,” Charlotte replied. “Hector comes to this restaurant quite often.”
“Oh, I see.” Michael paused for a moment in confusion before he asked, “I heard that he is divorced?”
“I think so.” Charlotte glanced at Helena, who had an ugly expression on her face. The latter frantically gestured for her not to reveal too much.
“I also heard that…” Michael trailed off. “Nevermind. Charlotte, you don’t have to be so polite to Helena. She is my sister, so she is also your sister. If you need anything, you can just let her know, and she will do as instructed. Right, Helena?”
“Yes,” Helena replied as soon as she heard her name. Then, she deliberately mocked, “How can I not listen to the words of my future sister-in-law?”
“Stop messing around,” Michael scolded. “Alright, I shall not disturb your ladies now. Charlotte, my hotline is open to you all day. If you need anything, feel free to call me anytime.”
“Yes, sure. Be mindful of your health and take care,” after Charlotte spoke, the call ended.
She passed the phone back to Helena.
“A smart move.” Helena glared at Charlotte. “How dare you use my brother as your shield?”
“You are a dangerous person, so I have to do that.” Charlotte growled, “Helena, I have never hurt you, but you treated me like your enemy. You had an affair with Hector, but you blamed it on me. Additionally, you even made Luna harm me. I have yet to settle the scores with you, and you want to threaten me? Do you think I am a pushover?”
“You never thought of harming me? I see that you have forgotten all about what happened.” Gritting her teeth, Helena seethed, “Back then, I wrote a love letter to Hector, but he used it to lift the foot of your table.
“I prepared a lunchbox for him, but he gave it to you instead. In the end, you fed it to the dogs.
“I gave Hector so much, but he never looked my way. Everything I did for him went to you. Do you understand the pain and sadness I went through? Is this not harming me?”
“You are blaming me for all that?” Charlotte asked in disbelief.
“Of course, you are to be blamed. Without you around, Hector would probably love me from the start.” Helena stubbornly insisted, “You have destroyed my dreams of having a beautiful first love.Regardless, God is fair. Your family business soon went downhill. I exhausted all my means to announce the bankruptcy of Windt Corporation and caused your engagement to be called off. Despite that, I never imagined that you would be so foolish to be deceived by Luna, who took advantage of the situation and reaped all the benefits from it.
“I hated you for four long years. After those four years, I finally found the opportunity to use you to destroy his marriage with Luna by making her turn against you. Finally, my goal has been achieved, and Hector is finally mine!”
