Chapter 155 I have something.
Colin Ward thought Doris Lee fainted because she saw the photos. It turned out to be Ellie Ye!
Doris seldom watched the news, and if Ellie hadn’t said something to her, Doris might not have known about it at all!
Of course, it was his fault that didn’t think it through this time, but Ellie shouldn’t have come to Doris.
“You continue to protect Doris.” Then Colin started the car, heading to the bar.
In the private room, only Fox was drinking whiskey slowly.
Colin walked over and sat across the table, “tell me, what do you want?”
Fox looked at Colin with disdain, “although I’m shocked that you’re the chairman of the Marquis group, but that’s exactly the reason why the news could be spread so fast in Tianbei City.”
“What do you think? Do you still like the gift I gave you?”
Colin stared at Fox coldly, “where did you get these photos?”
“You don’t have to know that. You just need to do as I said.”Fox grinned.
Colin lowered his eyes and asked, “fine, what do you want to do?”
“It’s very simple. Your reputation has been ruined, and together with the predicament of the Marquis Group, you won’t be able to hold on for long. Why don’t you give me the Marquis Group? I will immediately refute the rumor and tell everyone that these photos are fake. What do you think?”
Colin sneered, “even at this point, the Marquis group is still the leading enterprise in this city. It will survive.”
Fox’s eyes darkened, “I don’t care, for that’s the only choice for you! Give me the Marquis, and I’ll refute the rumor for you to prove your innocence.”
“Fox Lee, Everyone in the city has already known it. Even Doris and my parents-in-law know it. Do you think it’s important for me to refute the rumor right now?”Colin said lightly.
Fox was a little stunned but still said loudly, “Colin Ward, think it over! If this matter is proved to be true, the stock market will fall again and again, and the Marquis Group will only face more and more problems. Do you want that to happen?”
Colin didn’t say a word.
Fox thought Colin hesitated, so he continued, “that’s right, just think about it, and-“
Suddenly, Colin raised his head and interrupted, “I don’t care, for I have faith in the Marquis, and even if it’s bankrupt, it will be useless to you by then, and I’m happy to see that happen.”
“You!”Fox didn’t expect that Colin would say so.
Colin stood up and said coldly, “you’re such a lousy opponent, Fox Lee.”
Fox also stood up and shouted, “Colin Ward, if you want Doris to be fine, you’d better agree to my conditions.”
“What?”Colin stopped and turned to look at Fox.
Seeing that Colin had taken the bait, Fox sat down again and said slowly, “I heard that Doris fainted today, didn’t she?”
“Open your goddamn mouth!”As long as it came to Doris, Colin didn’t have that much patience.
Fox snorted, “I heard that Doris passed out a lot?”
Colin stared at Fox. How did Fox know that?
“Don’t look at me like that. I’m just stating the truth.”Fox took a sip of whiskey and said, “I have something that can help Doris recover.”
Colin’s pupils shrank, and he was excited. He tried his best to restrain himself, “are you serious?”
“What do you think?”Fox looked at Colin disdainfully.
Colin clenched his fists and said nothing.
Fox replied, “I’ll give you some time to think about it and will come to you tomorrow morning. I hope you can give me an answer that will satisfy both of us.”
Then Fox walked out of the room.
The reason why Fox didn’t mention Doris at the beginning was that he wanted to see Colin’s attitude. Sure enough, Colin cared more about Doris, so if he took out Doris later, and Colin would naturally choose Doris without hesitation.
Colin sat down on the sofa.
There was an antidote for Doris in Fox’s hands? But how did Fox know that Doris was poisoned? Wasn’t the poisoning related to Walson Martin? What was the connection between them?
The most important point was that the photos were sent by Fox, and the first holder of the photos was Ellie Ye. Then what was the relationship between Fox and Ellie?
Colin felt that there was a mist in front of him. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t see what was behind the mist.
After sitting for a while, Colin stood up and intended to go back to his office. He had a lot of things to deal with.
However, as soon as she walked to the hall on the first floor, she saw Flora Lewis drinking at the bar counter.
“Flora?” Called out Colin.
Flora was startled when she heard the voice, “Colin Ward, why are you here?”
Before Colin could say anything, Flora pointed at him and cursed, “you bastard! I was wrong about you. I thought you really like Doris, but you cheated on her!”
Taking a deep breath, Colin said, “calm down first, Flora. Things are not what you think it is.”
Colin looked around. It was still afternoon, so there were not many people in the bar. So when they were talking, people kept looking at them.
Akimbo, Flora asked, “what? You have the guts to do it but not dare to admit it? Jerk!”
Colin smiled bitterly, “those photos are fake, it wasn’t me on them.”
When Flora was about to shout abuse, she was surprised to hear that, “huh?”
“Yeah, don’t you know how much I love Doris?”
Flora asked with doubt, “then who the person in the photo is?”
“Well, it’s me.”Colin replied, “but someone set me up. I was unconscious at that time.”
Hearing this, Flora snorted and continued to drink, but the corner of her mouth couldn’t help raising slightly.
Fortunately, Colin was not that kind of a man.
Sitting next to Flora, Colin asked, “is it office time now? Why are you in the bar?”
Flora avoided the wondering eyes of his as she replied, “I was talking about a project with a client, but I failed, so I wanted to drink a little.”
Colin nodded and didn’t ask any more questions. He said, “I’m going back to the Marquis, you…”
“Wait, take me home first.”Flora put down her glass and said.
“Aren’t you going back to your office?”
“It’s almost time to get off work anyway,” Flora walked out directly.
Colin had no choice but to send Flora back.
In the car, Flora asked, “Colin Ward, you really love Doris alone and will never change your mind?”
Colin thought Flora asked this for Doris, so he answered honestly, “sure, she the one and only for me.”
Flora said nothing more. But not long after, Flora added, “can you do me a favor tomorrow?”
Colin’s eyelids twitched, “no.”
What happened last time told him to refuse.
Flora pursed her lips, “what? How can you do that? I helped you hide your identity from Doris, but you just can’t do me a favor?”
“Last time I helped you, it didn’t turn out so well.”
“Well, that was all your fault!” Flora snorted.
The whole thing was supposed to end smoothly, but Colin had talked about the issue of child, and her parents had believed it and even invited him to have dinner at home.
