Never Late, Never Away Chapter 781

As long as Vivian is happy, everything else isn’t important.

“Don’t worry, Ben,” Finnick avowed as he looked Benedict in the eye.

Even if he didn’t say that, I’ll still take good care of Vivian. It’ll be dumb of me if I let her leave again after having spent so much effort to win her back.

“I trust you.” Just after Benedict had said this, Vivian’s scream pierced the air.

“Ahh!”

Upon hearing her scream, both Benedict and Finnick swiftly sprinted up the stairs.

However, it wasn’t because they were curious. Rather, the cry was simply too chilling.

“What’s wrong, Vivian?” Finnick dashed into the room, but he didn’t see any sign of Vivian.

He searched the entire room, but there were only a few things that hadn’t been packed scattered about the room.

Then, he circled the room. All of a sudden, he noticed something amiss at the windowsill. The curtains had already been taken down, proving that she was there when she was last in the room.

As such, Finnick walked toward the window step by step. The closer he drew, the faster his heart pounded.

He simply couldn’t believe the truth that was staring him right in the face. No… that can’t be it! If she truly had an accident there, the consequences would be inconceivable!

He was now three steps away.

Two steps.

One step.

Finally, he reached the window. When he heard the rustling of clothes, he looked right down, out the window.

Sure enough, Vivian had been pulled out of the window and was now on the ledge where the air-conditioner was located.

Seeing that, Finnick promptly leaped down and snatched Vivian away from the woman.

“Are you okay, Vivian?” Finnick queried to ascertain that she wasn’t hurt since he didn’t see any injuries on her after first looking her over.

“I’m fine. I just suffered a fright.” Vivian shook her head smilingly as she looked at him.

Her smile, however, was tinged with a hint of relief and lingering fear after her near brush with death.

Finnick’s heart clenched at the sight of the smile, and he frowned. In the next moment, he swung his gaze at the woman at the side.

She’s the person I’d just publicly blacklisted just now! At that moment, he finally understood what this was all about.

“What exactly do you want?” Vivian demanded, for she had also recognized her.

“Nothing. I just want a job and to be a good reporter. But you, Finnick Norton, pushed me to the edge of the cliff.”

The woman’s name was Yolanda Yeager. She was from a poor family, and her dream was to be a successful reporter.

However, the questions she usually posed were overly unscrupulous. On top of that, she also had no qualms doing anything at all for a scoop. For that reason, she had offended many people within the industry.

This time, her question had incensed Finnick, so she was blacklisted. As no friends in the industry were willing to lend her a helping hand, she chose to give up on herself and go for broke.

She wanted to take revenge against Finnick, but he seemed to be an exceedingly difficult target, so she went for Vivian, who appeared like easy prey.

“Yes, you didn’t do anything grievous, but you are unscrupulous in your quest to obtain a scoop. Plus, you disregarded someone else’s life just to vent your resentment. While you didn’t do anything wrong, your question disrupted our life.”

“People should help each other, unlike you and your selfish disposition. Just leave. I won’t pursue the matter this time.”

Vivian could be considered a colleague of hers in the past, so she understood her feelings well.

Fortunately, I didn’t sustain any injuries this time, or I won’t be able to spare her even if I do want to do so considering Finnick’s temperament.

“Let’s go.” After saying that, Finnick carried Vivian back to the room.

“Don’t forget your initial intentions,” Finnick said to Yolanda mildly before leaving. Then, he climbed up the windowsill.

“I’m sorry I worried you, Ben.” Vivian noticed her brother staring at her intently after getting back into the room, so she flashed him a smile in reassurance.

“It’s okay. Nothing matters as long as you’re fine.” Benedict then cast Finnick a glance before he left the room.

“Alright, everything’s over. I’m here, so don’t be afraid.”

Finnick knew that Vivian had definitely suffered a fright earlier, so he stepped forward and hugged her, stroking her back in consolation.

“Alright, I’m fine. Let’s pack up and go home.” Vivian wasn’t all that melodramatic either. It’s no big deal. I was just yanked out of the window earlier.
