Charlotte was struck dumb. “You’re the one who leaked the information about our family? You did all these behind our back?”
“That’s right. I did it,” Helena admitted. “Your father might have declared bankruptcy, but he was capable of hiding this from everyone, including the Sterling family. Initially, they even thought that they could benefit from working closely with your family.”
“But once the information got out, the Sterling family immediately regretted. Hector, too, ditched you. Eventually, Amanda and Luna tricked you and caused you to lose everything. I was glad to see how things turned out, and seeing your clueless and dumb face makes me happy. But too bad–Luna got ahead of me and married Hector.”
Charlotte gritted her teeth. “But Hector is yours now. You could have taught Luna a lesson if you wish to instead of destroying her. Why did you do that?”
“Excuse me?” Helena immediately spoke in a more hostile manner. “I’ve never done anything against the law, and you have no evidence against me. You better don’t test my patience. I’m warning you!”
“You’ll get what you deserve,” Charlotte said and left.
“Don’t you want to know who ruined your father’s life?” Helena asked all of a sudden.
Charlotte stopped walking, but she did not turn around. “What makes you think I’ll believe you?”
“Make your own judgment then. I’m sure you’re not an idiot.” Helena took out a letter and said, “Your father wrote this to my brother, and I have a copy of it. I’m sure you can recognize your father’s handwriting, right?”
Charlotte took a glance at the letter and hesitated for a moment, but decided to turn around.
Just when she was about the retrieve the letter, Helena retracted her hand and raised her brows. “What can I get in return for giving you this letter?”
“What do you want from me?” Charlotte asked icily.
“I want you to stay away from Hector,” Helena said condescendingly. “Even if he wants to see you, you have to think of ways to avoid him!”
“You don’t have to tell me this. I don’t even want to see him anymore,” Charlotte said with disdain.
“And stay away from Michael,” Helena added.
“That should be least of your worries.”
Charlotte knew what was on her mind. Helena’s family business depended heavily on Michael, and she would not allow anyone to sabotage her relationship with Michael.
Helena was worried that Charlotte might destroy this relationship if the latter decided to be with Michael.
This was why Helena had to be mindful of Charlotte.
“You better not break your promise.” Helena then gave her the letter. “I’ll destroy you if you dare. I still know your other secrets, mind you.”
A line formed between Charlotte’s brows. “What secrets?”
“You’ll know on the day you break your promise.” Helena let out a mirthless laugh. “You’re one lucky women, Charlotte. “You have both Zachary and my brother on your side, so I’ll spare you for now. But if you ever try stepping on my toes…”
Helena squinted her eyes and gave Charlotte a sullen glare.
Charlotte did not know what kind of dirt Helena had on her, but she decided to ignore this vicious woman.
She just wanted to stay away from her.
As Charlotte walked away, Helena looked at her back and put on a baffling smile.
Helena’s assistant, who had been observing their interaction, asked, “Why did you give her the letter, Ms. Brown?
“If you want her to stay away from Mr. Sterling and Mr. Brown, you should have just let her be with the man who killed her father.”
“What do you know?” Helena glowered. “She being close with Zachary will only pose a greater threat to our future.”
