Finnick went and stood beside Vivian, who was shaking angrily, and gently placed his arm around her shoulder. After that, he glared at Evelyn furiously and said, “I believe Vivian. It’s time you come clean today and tell me what happened back then. Otherwise, I will never let you go.”
Since he had lost trust in Evelyn a long time ago, Finnick did not take what she said seriously at all. The number of times she lied to him made it impossible for him to ever trust her again.
Evelyn broke down as soon as Finnick said that. Even after all her effort to stay clear of the kidnapping incident, she hadn’t expected him to not believe her.
“Why don’t you believe me? What I said is true. It’s Vivian who is lying to you. Why do you believe her and not me!” Evelyn’s heart was filled with despair. If Finnick has made up his mind not to trust me, what else can I do to get out of this situation?
Vivian was a little touch and she looked at Finnick, who was standing beside her, she was struck by his stern gaze—it was unlike anything she had ever seen before. He did not believe Evelyn’s words, it would be easier to deal with her moving forward.
Vivian moved her finger to the send button and said coldly, “Evelyn, stop acting. No one is going to believe you. If you’re still insisting not talk tell what happened back then, don’t blame me for publicizing these photos.”
“Don’t you dare!” Evelyn saw that Vivian was about to press on the screen and she panicked. However, she wasn’t willing to admit to her evil deed yet.
“Finnick, believe me. I…” Evelyn was still trying to convince Finnick to believe in her. If he didn’t believe Vivian’s words, then she had nothing to be afraid of.
She suddenly stopped talking when she saw Finnick’s eyes staring at her. It was as if he was staring at her while she was putting on a show and there was a sense of mockery in them. He doesn’t trust me, he will never trust me again.
When Evelyn realized that, she didn’t know what to do. It was only Finnick’s trust in her that she could rely on throughout the entire situation. What should I do now? Am I really going to allow Vivian to publicize my naked photos?
“Are you still not going to tell the truth?” Vivian was about to press the send button. She knew that Evelyn wouldn’t feel remorse until she was doomed. If she still insisted on not saying anything, then no one could blame her for what she was going to do next.
After seeing Vivian was about to press on the screen, Evelyn broke down into tears and shouted, “No… no! I’ll tell you! I’ll tell you the truth about the kidnapping back then!”
Vivian put down her phone and took a step back. “Evelyn, you better come clean and stop trying to get away with your tricks. Otherwise, I will definitely publicize these photos.”
Vivian’s threat left Evelyn gritting her teeth with hatred. However, she had no choice but to give in. Considering how Finnick had lost trust in her, and Vivian had the pictures, she wasn’t sure what else she could do besides telling the truth about the situation.
As Evelyn didn’t dare look Finnick in the eye, she lowered her head in grief and cried out the truth about the kidnapping case.
“After my parents died in an accident, my brother and I were the only Morrisons left. At that time, I was still too young so it was only my brother handling both the company and the family. However, my brother had little to no experience back then, that was why those directors of the Morrison Group did not take him seriously and wanted to get the shares in my brother’s hands by all means. Furthermore, not only did those people who were affiliated with the Morrison family not help my brother, they even got together with the others to bully us seeing that we were young. They even wanted to take away the Morrison family’s property.”
Having said that, Evelyn’s face was full of resentment. “Those bas*ards who only seek their own benefit used to butter up my parents to gain advantage when the Morrison family was in its glory days. In general, my parents treated them pretty well and gave them opportunities to make money. When the Morrison family faced difficulties and needed their help, they all ignored us and no one offered to help!
My brother was in a very difficult situation because in addition to dealing with matters in the company, he had to be cautious about those who claimed to be our family members. Despite this, he never complained once and always made sure that I was living a comfortable life. As a result, I had no idea that the Morrison family was already facing so many problems at that time.”
