Chapter 214Knowing the James were powerful and rich, the paparazzo couldn't cross them and left Juanton City with his families silently. However, Katherine found him and the video backup in his hand. People die for money, and birds die for food. Katherine got that video backup just by giving some money to him. The video attracted broad social attention. Only after half a day, Nylah was taken away by the police. Alexis, who was filming in remote mountains at that time, called Scarlet without eating when she knew about what happened. Scarlet just left the company. She raised the eyebrows and smiled when looking at the caller identification. "Do you finish the scene?""No, I don't. It's lunch time. Lettie, do you know what happened to Nylah? Was it you who did that?"Scarlet got in the car and closed the door, blocking the sound outside. She said, "Not me."She paused and then continued, "It's Katherine.""Don't you give her instructions to do that?"Scarlet smiled and
Chapter 215 "Scarlett, it's been a long time. You look beautiful as always." Alexander was embarrassed at all when he sat down bluntly across from Scarlett. Scarlett took a sip of coffee, and then she looked up at him nonchalantly, "Mr. Smith, you also look as handsome as usual." While saying the words, Scarlett curled up the corners of her lips slightly and looked at Alexander. Although she complimented him, Alexander knew what she really meant. She meant he was as shameless as ever. Raymond also took a seat. He looked at Scarlett, "You've been busy lately?" "Fine, not as busy as Mr. Shaw." Scarlett had a nonchalant look on her face. The two were obviously not welcome. Both Raymond and Alexander could see that. However, one of them didn't want to leave and the other wanted to stay and watch the scene. All in all, both the two got no shame. It was true that friends tended to share something in common. Birds of a feather flock together See
Chapter 216Scarlett smiled. Just then, her food was served. She opened her napkin and was about to eat. Raymond and Alexander hadn't asked her permission to take the seats at her table anyway, so it was no big deal for her to eat her food first. "My food is served, Mr. Smith, Mr. Shaw, I'll eat first." Scarlett then gracefully picked up her knife and fork and began to slowly cut the steak and eat in small bites. Raymond had not had meals with Scarlett more than a few times. He used to think Scarlett just had a pretty face. However, watching her cut the steak and put it in her mouth in no hurry, Raymond found her to be an elegant lady of graceful manners. Raymond and Alexander just sat there and watched her eating her food, and she did so with aplomb and without a hint of embarrassment.Few people could dine so calmly under the watchful eyes of others. Raymond remembered the other night he saw Scarlett, she looked like a goddess, and he was totally captiva
Chapter 217Scarlett was almost done eating. She took one last sip of her wine. "I'm done, Mr. Shaw, Mr. Smith, I'll leave first." Then she lifted her hand and was about to ask the waiter for the bill. At that moment, Raymond reached out and clasped her wrist, "Wait." Scarlett looked at her wrist being clasped in his hand, and she raised her eyebrows, and the smile on her face faded. "Mr. Shaw?" Raymond let go of her hand. He gestured with his chin toward Alexander. "The meal is on him." Alexander was eating his udon noodles. When he heard Raymond's words, he looked up at Raymond. He almost spat out "What’s the f*ck!", but he was choked by Raymond's stern eyes.He couldn't fight Raymond. Scarlett glanced at Raymond, and then her eyes fell on Alexander. "Well, thank you, Mr. Smith." Since someone volunteered to pay the bill, she was glad to grand him the honor. "My pleasure." Alexander smiled. The corners of his mouth twitched when he met Raymond's eyes.
Chapter 218Scarlett didn't look at Raymond, "No." "I remember! Scarlett, I had saved you." The traffic light turned red. The car slowed to a stop. Scarlett tilted her head to look at him, "So Mr. Shaw, you want me to return the favor now?" "Now I know why you loved me." Most women would admire powerful men. And mostly, such admiration would develop into adoration. A handsome guy saving a pretty girl was a cliché. Teenage girls were naive and full of fantasies of romance. Scarlett stiffened. Raymond's words revealed her last secret. All she felt was embarrassment. She wanted to be as nonchalant as ever, but she couldn't be. Usually, when people see her, she looked calm, strong, and composed. However, she also had a soft and vulnerable part in her heart. There were things she cared about, like Raymond, like the very past event that she had been hiding from him. Her grip on the steering wheel tightened, and blue veins showed on the back of he
Chapter 219Scarlett watched Raymond getting smaller and smaller in the rearview mirror of her car, tension draining from her face gradually.Since he liked to trouble her by asking her to send him, she satisfied his demand.The suburb was fifteen kilometers from downtown, and Raymond's cell phone was taken away by her. It took her twenty minutes to take him here. Therefore, if he wanted to go back from the suburbs tonight, he had to walk for three or four hours.After returning downtown, Scarlett went straight to the police station with Raymond's cell phone.At 8 pm, the police officer on duty was stunned when he saw Scarlett. "Miss, are you coming to report a crime?"Scarlett smiled and took out Raymond's cell phone. "No. I found a cell phone on a road."The policeman took a look at the phone Scarlett was holding. It was not a common cell phone model, and it looked expensive."Oh, I see. Please keep a record."Scarlett raised her eyebrows and followed the policeman to keep a
Chapter 220Alexander could not laugh anymore. "No, I'm a little sleepy. Let's hurry back! I won't laugh at you!"Ten minutes later…"Ha-ha. Sorry, I still can't help laughing. You can hit me if you are angry!"Raymond was speechless.To be honest, he regretted asking Alexander to come and pick him up.Why did he not ask Stephen for help?He should not have called Alexander, the mean guy!"Wow! Scarlett is so amazing! I cannot believe she did such a cool thing! I am her big fan!""Stop the car."Alexander, who was still reveling in the joy of ridiculing Raymond, stopped the car in confusion. "What's wrong?""I'll drive."Alexander looked to Raymond. Seeing Raymond's angry face, Alexander stopped laughing and said, "Come on, bro!""Sit over there."Raymond got out and went straight to the driver's seat. Alexander had to move to the passenger seat.Fifteen minutes later, the car pulled up in front of a boxing gym.Alexander looked at the familiar signboard and was lost fo
Chapter 221Scarlet was reading several novels which would be turned into TV series when some people were making trouble downstairs. She planned to invest in web series this year. She just read the outline of the novels and prepared to skim through the detailed plot. At this moment, the phone started to ring. Scarlet raised her head to look at it and then picked up the receiver. "What's up?""Miss Reed, this is Reilly. There is an old woman downstairs wanting to see you. She says she is your grandma."'Grandma?'Scarlet almost forgot this title. Actually, she had families in this world. However, they didn't deserve to be her family. Ten years ago, they had lost contact with her. Now, they appeared again. Scarlet raised her eyebrows and said, "Stop her."Reilly got what Scarlet meant. "I see, Miss Reed."Hanging up, Reilly looked at the old woman and another middle-aged man and said, "Madam, you mistake Miss Reed. She doesn't have relatives."Kyleigh said, "What do you me
