Charlotte was taken back to the cell and locked up. After the mention of the incident from years back, she turned mute, and couldn't say a word. Xavier had to ask them to take her back.He waited for the DPO, who just received a call, and excused himself out of the office. He wasn't sure why he had to come bail her out, but somehow he thought that was the best he could do for her.He was still waiting, when he heard footsteps, and spun around to see the DPO."Mr Xi, thank you for your patience, the call was urgent." He apologized earnestly. Xavier doesn't wait for people."There's no problem. Regarding the lady, I want her released today. She can't stay in there."The DPO was a bit scared, he knows it would be hard to turn him down. "Mr Xi, you Know what you're asking me to do is against the law."Before Xavier could reply, a male cop strode into the office."Boss, the doctor, and the manager from the hotel are here." The cop announced."Right in time, Please let them inside, I was wai
Charlotte and Alley step down from the car. Alley pulled out a twenty box and handed it over to the cab driver.They both turn in the direction of the house. Charlotte was about to march on her heels, but Alley was quick to stop her."Best, you look so calm, you don't look like someone who Just got bailed from the station."Alley expected her to be nervous and disturbed over the incident, but Charlotte looked calm.Charlotte gazes at her toes. She spent the night crying, thinking of how she could convince the cops of her innocent, but thinking no one would believe her, she decided to not panic, the truth will eventually prevail."I'm ashamed of myself, people might think this is the type of life I live, when they find out, I have octuplets.""What are you talking about? No one will judge you. Things like this happen, it's not your fault you fell a victim. We just need to find who used your fingerprint." Alley responded, hoping she won't let the incident disturb her."Best, look at me,
It was Monday morning, Charlotte marched into the company with a tight-lipped smile on her face. The entire California knows what happened, and she's already a center of attention.Charlotte has been acting strong, that's the only way she thought she could overcome it until everything is over, and the murderer is caught.She step into the reception, and was greeted by the receptionist. Most eyes were glued to her, pointing fingers at her, but she turned a blind eye, and ignored their existence."Hey Charlotte, Good morning.""Hello, Good morning. How was your weekend?""It was fine. Please can you give this to the president, I was on my way to his office, but since you're here, don't know if you can help me do it."Charlotte placed her bag on her shoulders."Of course, let me do it." She stretched her hands to collect it. She felt it was an opportunity for her to see him, and appreciate him for what he did for her."Hey, I'm sorry about what happened, I never knew you passed through a
Xavier put off his laptop, he stood up, and wore his jacket blazer. He picked up his phone, and strode out of his office.As he strode out of his office, he met his personal assistant by the door frame, with his gaze down, shivering in fear."I'm on my way to the mansion, Inform Ms Charlotte to go to the station before heading home." Xavier breathes out, and turned a blind eye, not caring if he was shivering.Xavier was mad at him, if he hadn't picked up the wrong Charlotte years back, Arya wouldn't have stayed in his mansion, spending extravagantly for the past four years."Yes, master, I will do that." He responded, and Xavier walked out of the company.The guard, waiting for him, quickly opened the car door for Xavier to get inside."Take me to Ms Charlotte mansion." The guard quickly put on the car engine and hit the road.Xavier stayed quiet, thinking of how to handle the whole situation. Arya has spent extravagantly for the past four years, he never took any action to stop her b
People walk to the deceased, dropping flowers besides the casket. Proper rites have been carried out for the deceased, and he is about to be buried.Mr Xi stepped forward holding a flower in his hands, he pulled out his glass and wiped a tear from his eyes. The manager has been humble to him, he has worked for him for more than twenty years, and his sudden death touched him.He stood there for about five minutes looking at the dead body, mumbling some words to his ears only.Xavier strode forward, and patted his father's back, consoling him. The manager was close to him, but that wouldn't have stopped him from terminating his employment if he had not died in the hotel.Xavier and his father dislike rules being broken by employees. They believe their employees come first, and in other to protect their rights, no one is above the rules, all employees must abide to the employee's manual."I know you're heartbroken, but we can't stay here the whole day. You're the only one we're waiting f
Arya arrived home to find the maids bringing out her few clothes, after two days of staying out. She stood in a daze at first, not sure if she was seeing things vividly. She hadn't been home in two days, she had no idea if something happened in her absent.She drags her legs to where her bag was dumped on the floor, and halt, looking at the only bag she had."Why are my clothes outside? Who ordered you to bring out my clothes?" She thundered, thinking the maids would be scared of her like always, but she got the opposite.The two maids burst out laughing at her reaction, she always acted bossy, today was their turn."Mr jasper did, you're leaving the house you cheat. You acted all mighty and rich, but you were all faking it."Arya couldn't believe her ears, and how boldly the maid replied to her."What are you talking about? What is wrong with you? Have you lost it?""No Arya, we haven't lost it. You're the one who has lost it. A psychopath, that's what you are."Arya's eyes widened w
Charlotte is seated in the waiting area at the station, watching the cops carry out their duties. She was asked to come to the station to be questioned alongside Veronica, and Xavier was kind enough to let go during working hours.A few minutes later, Veronica strode into the station and was greeted by some cop. After the greetings and all, she starts to march on her heels when she saw Charlotte, and gracefully walked up to her."You murderer, are you happy I'm now a widower? Is that what you wanted, how could you be so mean?" Veronica spat, diverting her attention to her.Charlotte stood up, and cast her head down, showing some respect. "I'm sorry your husband died that way, but I never killed anyone, you can't call me a murderer when you have no proof." Charlotte defended herself."I'm going to kill you today, you killed my husband and have the guts to talk back at me." Veronica raised her hands to hit her, but someone quickly held her hands."Mrs this isn't a place where you can ca
Mr Xi marched into the company with a dark expression on his face. He saw the news and couldn't sit back at home and do nothing, when Xavier hasn't taken any action.The expression on his face made workers clumsy when they set their eye's on his face. Xavier took after his father, the both of them are scary and dangerous when it comes to handling affairs.It's been two hours since the scandal went viral, and the dead body that was found in the company's garden. Out of nowhere, reporters showed up and surrounded the company, but had to leave when Xavier threatened them.Mr Xi walked into his son's office without a knock from him. Xavier lifted his head up when he heard the door closed. He wasn't surprised, this is his father, and he would do more than that if he wished too."Excuse us, I will call you in when I'm done." Evelyn nodded, and walked out of the room.After making himself comfortable, he turned to his son. "Is there something you're not telling me? Are you the Xavier I know?
