She could only remember fragments of what happened. She recalled receiving a message from Tammy telling her that she had a surprise waiting for her. Tammy had told her to hurry over. However, Avery could not find Tammy when she got there.
After that, she started feeling extremely light-headed, and she had fallen asleep.
The room she woke up in was not the room she had walked into earlier that evening.
“Who moved me to another room?” she thought. Unsettled, she grabbed her purse and hurried out of the room. As soon as she was out of the hotel, she called Jun.
“Avery, Tammy lost her phone. If someone calls or messages you asking for money, don’t give it!” Jun said.
“Oh… When did she lose her phone?” Avery’s blood ran cold.
“Around three in the afternoon. Did you receive weird messages?”
Avery took a deep breath. “Is Tammy with you right now? I need to talk to her.”
“Oh, okay. She’s upstairs. I’ll go get her.”
Shortly after, Jun passed the phone to Tammy.
“Avery! My phone was stolen! D*mn that thief! I reported it to the police, but they said that it’s going to be very hard to find it. I’ve been so caught up with it the entire morning. I have too much personal information on my phone…” Tammy whined.
“Your phone is with me,” Avery said in a cold voice. “Someone texted me with your phone yesterday afternoon and fooled me into going to Caesar hotel.
“Huh?! Why would the thief lure you to the hotel? Avery, are you okay? You are scaring me!”
“I’m fine.” Avery still felt a little dizzy. “I didn’t see anyone when I arrived at the hotel. I was probably drugged. I fell asleep. Other than feeling a bit dizzy, I feel alright.”
“Hurry and go get checked at the hospital! That thief is so weird.”
“Yeah, don’t worry. I will head to the hospital right now. Also, don’t tell anyone about this just yet I don’t want Elliot to worry,” Avery said.
“Okay, I won’t.” Still concerned, Tammy asked, “Which hospital are you going to? I will meet you there.”
“There is a hospital practicing traditional medicine near the hotel.”
“I will go to you right away.”
The next day, Ben found Elliot sitting in his office.
Ben had not been able to sleep the entire night, and he stormed into Elliot’s office the moment he arrived at the company that morning.
“Elliot, I am not giving money to Avery on your behalf anymore.” Ben stopped in front of the office desk and said, “She makes her own money, and she doesn’t need your money.”
Elliot gazed up in confusion. “What’s wrong with you?”
“Nothing. I just checked, and you don’t have much money left, anyway. There’s no need to drain yourself over a relationship,” Ben said with a cold expression and an even colder voice.
“She is the mother of my child. It’s only natural that I spend money on her.” Elliot noticed that Ben was upset and asked once again, “What exactly is wrong with you?”
“If you have to ask, then I’ll tell you the truth!” Ben slowly lost his temper as he spoke. “I hate Avery. That woman isn’t worthy of you! So what if she can give birth? Other women can do the same! I’ve seen pathetic pursuers before, but none as lowly and egoless as you! The more you put up with her, the less respect she shows you! Is this fun for you?”
Ben felt much better after speaking his mind; but on the other end of the desk, Elliot’s expression instantly darkened. He dropped the pen he was holding onto the desk and stood up. He walked to Ben and grabbed him by the collar.
“Repeat what you just said!”
“I won’t pay Avery another penny on your behalf! You can either get a new chief financial officer or give up Avery Tate!” Ben swallowed hard and hissed, “Dump her as soon as she gives birth to the baby!”
“Ben, don’t f*cking push me! I will never give up on Avery!”
“Then you are doomed!” cursed Ben, “That woman is going to ruin you!”
