“Oh? So you’re calling Helen evil, huh? Okay, I’ll tell her you said that tomorrow!” Fabian said with a devilish grin on his face.
He wasn’t actually going to do anything, but Hannah took his joke seriously and got worked up over it.
F*ck you, Fabian! How despicable can you get, you shameless b*stard? Fine, go on and tell her if you want! I’ll just get a scolding from her at worst, which is still a hundred times better than letting you torture me like this!
“How much did you pay for Helen’s clothes?” Hannah asked all of a sudden.
“What, you want to pay me back?”
“Duh! We agreed that I wouldn’t be spending any of your money, remember?”
“Hmm… Let me see…” Fabian stroked his chin as he thought about it. “I think it was a little over four thousand, but… Seeing as you’re so sincere about paying me back, let’s just round it up to five thousand instead!”
Hannah was so shocked that she choked on her saliva. “I’m sorry, what? F-Five thousand? Are the clothes made of gold or what?”
She then pouted as she grumbled under her breath, “I can’t believe you’d try to con a poor girl like me when you’re so damned rich… You rich people are all bloodsuckers… Every single one of you…”
Fabian could faintly hear her grumbling, but he couldn’t quite make out what she was saying. “What did you say?”
“N-Nothing! I was just thinking about when I can finally clear off this debt!”
“Hmm… I do have an idea, but I’m not sure if you’re up for it.”
“Huh? What is it?”
“It’s simple, really. In fact, it’s something you’ve done before.”
“What is it? Tell me!”
“By having sex with me. Since you’re quite good-looking, I’ll consider taking a thousand off your debt every time you do that. What do you say?” Fabian replied.
“A thousand per session? That means I’d owe you…” Hannah started doing the math in her head and shouted at him angrily when she found the answer, “Go to hell, Fabian! Just you watch, I’ll work hard and pay you back in cash!”
Hmph! How dare he suggest such a thing? That’s basically prostitution! This is unbelievable! He is just too much!
“Oh, boy… Looks like it’ll take forever for me to get that money back…” Fabian sighed and shook his head.
“Hmph! Who would’ve thought the president of Phoenix Group would be so calculative!” Hannah snapped back at him.
Fabian wasn’t mad at her for saying that, but he decided to mess with her anyway. Fine, you want to go there? I’ll show you calculative!
Fabian then looked her in straight in the eye and said in the most serious tone possible, “Okay, since you put it that way, I’ll get calculative with you. So, these are the current interest rates for banks… And these are the current interest rates on the black market… I’ll give you a bit of a discount and go for somewhere in between the two, so you owe me…”
As expected of the president of Phoenix Group, he sure is ridiculously talented in business and finance… My goodness, I can’t believe the head of the largest company in the country is seriously being so calculative with a girl like me!
Hannah thought to herself as she heard him read out a long string of numbers.
“Hmph! You are nothing but a miser!” Hannah then cleared her throat as she changed the topic, “Anyway, where did you have Helen stay?”
“Lyon Gardens,” Fabian replied.
