Hannah let out a chuckle and shot her a condescending look as she said, “How inappropriate of you, demanding to go through my stuff like that.”
“Funny hearing that from a member of the paparazzi! I bet you’re just feeling guilty because I exposed you!” Yvette shouted back at her.
“That’s enough talking! Take this, you b*tch!” The assistant rolled up her sleeves and prepared herself to snatch the camera as well.
“Looks like the saying is true, after all. Birds of a feather really do flock together!” Hannah replied calmly despite being on the verge of losing her patience.
Had it not been for these heels and this camera, I would’ve kicked her a** right here and now!
The assistant went livid with rage and tried to slap her across the face, but Hannah was faster and caught her by the wrist. “What do you think you are doing?”
“You…” The assistant turned towards Yvette for help.
Yvette had a gloomy look on her face as she shouted at the receptionist at the front desk, “What the hell are you waiting for? Get this damned paparazzi out of here!”
The receptionist stopped smiling and looked around to make sure Yvette was addressing her before stepping forward.
“Where are all the security guards, huh? What the f*ck am I paying you all for?” Yvette continued shouting angrily while Hannah simply sneered at her out of pity and disdain.
“Ms. Tanner, she really isn’t a paparazzi,” the receptionist explained with a helpless look on her face.
“What the hell are you saying? There’s no way I’d be wrong about her!” Yvette questioned her angrily.
The receptionist then leaned closer to Yvette and whispered in her ear, “Mr. Norton was the one who invited her upstairs to do an exclusive interview.”
“An exclusive interview?” Yvette was surprised. Fabian never does interviews, and yet he’s personally invited her over for one? Something isn’t right here…
“That’s right, Ms. Tanner. This really is a misunderstanding.” The receptionist observed her facial expressions and let out a sigh of relief when she saw that Yvette had calmed down.
Yvette seemed to realize something as she recalled the scent she detected on Hannah the other day and stormed off without saying a word.
“This woman sure is more than what meets the eyes!” the assistant exclaimed.
“Why are you stating the obvious!” Yvette took out her anger on her assistant instead. “Not a word about this incident in front of Fabian, you hear?”
The assistant nodded. “Got it…”
Hannah had a troubled look in her eyes as she watched Yvette disappear into the elevator before walking out of the building.
“The show’s over, people! Get back to work!” the receptionist called out to the crowd around the front desk.
Realizing that it was raining when she got outside, Hannah took shelter in a café across the street while Fabian watched her from his window upstairs.
The rain had stopped by the time Hannah finished her coffee, so she quickly grabbed her stuff and hailed a cab home.
While staring blankly at the scenery outside the car, Hannah went into deep thought.
I wonder what are Fabian and Yvette doing right now? I could almost imagine him embracing her and whispering all sorts of steamy stuff into her ear… Heck, he even kissed her not long ago!
The more she thought about it, the deeper her frown became.
