When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 128
Joe is a smart guy. He wouldn‘t make such a huge sacrifice to get at Ashton. Still, without Ashton around, I had no idea as to what I should do...
Macy gave me a pat on the shoulder when she saw how stressed I was. “There, don’t worry about it. You’re only twenty-six, so you couldn’t have known much about workplace politics and conspiracies to avoid them, Besides, I can tell there’s a lot more to this incident than it may seem.”
She‘s right! This whole thing happened while Ashton, Joe, and Jared weren‘t around! Now that I think about it, it does seem premeditated! Who could‘ve... Zachary!
The look on my face turned cold the moment the man’s name came to mind.
Yes, it all makes sense! Zachary and Cameron are the only ones capable of helping Ashton if Fuller Corporation were to fall! It‘d be a piece of cake, considering the connections and the amount of money they have! After all, they just fecovered their daughter who was lost for over twenty years! It‘s only natural for them to do everything in their power to help her get what she wants! We all know Rebecca loves Ashton, but it‘s very unlikely for him to divorce me when I‘m pregnant with his child. With this incident, however, it‘ll be a whole different story!
“What’s on your mind?” Macy snapped me out of my train of thoughts by tugging at my shirt sleeve.
“It’s a conspiracy!” Having lost all appetite, I put my cutlery down and looked her in the eye as I continued, “I think they’re actually targeting me instead of Ashton!”
“Hold up. I’m confused now. What are you talking about?”
I ignored her question as another conflicting thought popped into my head. But... If it really were Zachary and Cameron that did all this, why would they be involved in the accident along with Ashton and Rebecca? As much as they may love Rebecca, it wouldn‘t make sense for them to risk their lives like that!
“Never mind, I’m probably overthinking things.” I got up and walked into the bedroom after saying that.
After giving it some thought, I decided to give Nick a call. “Are you alright, Scarlett?” he answered within seconds.
“Yeah, I’m alright!” I said while staring down from the balcony. “How are things on your end?”
“Ashton’s still in the ICU, so there isn’t much I can do. Waiting here is a waste of time. so I’ll be coming back today. Got a lot of things to take care of now that Harrison Credit is under investigation.”
There was indeed no point in staying there if he wasn’t able to see Ashton anyway.
“Are Joe and Jared there? Have you seen them?” I asked.
There‘s no way they‘d stay there with Ashton after what’s happened to the company! It wouldn‘t make any sense!
“Jared is in the ICU. Joe left this morning after having someone take his place there. Hey, you don’t have to worry about Fuller Corporation, okay? I’m sure everything will be alright after a couple of weeks.”
He was probably talking to me in the corridor; I could hear his voice echoing from time to time.
“Yeah, sure.” I lacked the vision they had to fully comprehend what was going on, so I hung up after a brief exchange.
Joe must be heading towards the office if he‘s coming back today! With that thought in mind, 1 hurriedly packed my stuff and got ready to leave the house.
Macy was shocked when she saw me leaving and quickly stopped me at the door. “Are you crazy? Where do you think you’re going?”
“Joe’s on his way back. I have to go to the office.”
“Let him handle it! We can’t have you going out there when you’re pregnant like this! What if something happens to you?”
“I’ll be fine!” I figured it was probably not as serious as I had imagined. Besides, Joe was only coming back a few days after the incident had occurred, so it was obvious that he knew something I didn’t.
“I’ll go with you!” Macy knew there was no stopping me, so she grabbed her coat and headed out with me.
The huge group of reporters and stockholders gathered outside the building made it impossible for us to get in through the main entrance, but Macy had a brilliant idea.
By driving my car and parking it outside the building, she had managed to gain the crowd’s attention fairly quickly. “Hey, isn’t that Mrs. Fuller’s car?”
That little distraction allowed me to quickly snuck into the building while the entire crowd rushed over and surrounded my car.
Only a few managerial staff were in the office at the time. The rest of the people there were all investigators from the Bureau of Industry and Commerce.
I made my way to the conference hall and saw Joe talking to the investigators.
The man raised an eyebrow at me when he noticed me. “How did you get in here?”
One of the investigators then handed him a stack of documents and said, “The results of the investigation will be announced tomorrow. As far as I know, there are no other issues apart from the safety violations at HiTech.”
Joe nodded in acknowledgment. “Thank you, officers!”
He then began reading through the documents after the investigator left. Despite everything that has happened, he didn’t seem even a tad bit anxious. In fact, he was so calm that it felt slightly unnerving.
