“Leanna, we should hurry and have your dress made.” Zoe was all smiles, basking in happiness and excitement.
“No need. I have tons of dresses in my unit.” I didn’t want to spend money on the debut of someone I didn’t like.
“Speaking of dresses. Why aren’t you with us last Saturday?” My attention shifted to Estela, who was sitting the whole time quietly. I sensed something was wrong with her. Most of the time, she was not this . . . behaved?
“Oh~ you know . . . just some business problems,” Estela said dismissingly.
But I was not going to let her off.
“Is that why Cain left for a month? What kind of problem is it?” I probed.
Estela’s eyes flickered on me, discerning something on my face. I didn’t waver under her gaze, and she sighed at my stubbornness to back down.
“Well, for my brother to be with you,” she started, “he broke all relations with the Goldwood. That includes millions or even billions worth of investments and deals. Of course, my brother already made arrangements and preparations. But never did we expect that they would be so shameless as to withdraw all their money in one go without even issuing a warning. Now, my brother was forced to fly to different parts of the globe to make major decisions on what to . . .”
Estela rattled on and on, but I was stuck at the realization that the reason why Cain left was because of me.
Because he wanted to be with me –– the Fay’s lost billions worth of money?
I caused all of this?
Estela stopped talking when she saw my guilt-stricken face while Zoe stared at me with worried filled eyes.
“But, but of course, it’s not your fault! In the long run, it will still be those people who will lose money. With my brother handling the problem, consider it done and over with!” Estela explained with smug confidence.
“How many months until you recover your losses?” I said with a serious face and business-like tone which made Estela and Zoe glanced at each other.
“Well, it will take a year or two at most, but with my brother at work, you don’t have to worry about a single thing!” Estela forced a laugh as she squeezed my hand, letting me know that everything was under control.
I didn’t respond, my eyes on my teacup, thinking of something. After seconds, the two girls paralyzed faces loosened upon seeing my blossoming smile.
Eventually, we were back to chatting and laughing without a care in the world until lunch break was over.
