Charmine wanted to stop him, but they
were already making their way outside.
Luckily, the motorbike was already
parked outside the restaurant and the
technician handed the key to her.
Charmine instantly got onto her bike.
“Wait.” Anthony walked in front of her
and grabbed her arm.
She wanted to pullback her arm on
instinct, but Anthony already took out a
bottle of ointment and applied it to her
Was he… taking care of her wound?
Anthony grabbed her arm with one hand
and applied the ointment with his index
finger on her wound. He seemed careful
and meticulous as though appraising a
timeless piece of artwork. He then took
out a small roll of bandage and wrapped i
t around her wound.
“Try to avoid contact with water in the
next three days for this hand. Try using
less of your right hand,” he reminded
her, his voice deep and gentle.
Charmine’s heart began to beat faster
than usual; no one gave her this much
care over the past five years. However,
she was quickly reminded of what
happened five years ago. She pulled
herself away from him and flatly replied,
“Thanks. Take good care of Momo.”
She ignited the engine, and the motorbike
raced out of sight. Her hair was unruly in
the wind as her red dress fluttered. It was
a sight of charming heroism. It was as if
nothing in the world mild stop her or
move her. Though, Anthony’s look
Charmine soon arrived at her villa, and
she saw Eric waiting for her on the sofa
with a folder at hand.
“The list?” she asked.
“I’ve asked bay to make a background
check on every some on the list, and I
believe the results will be out soon. On the
other hand, the second thing is more
urgent.” Erk placed the folder on the
table, and with a grave tone, he
continued, “Someone’s making a
background on what you did for the past
five years in Africa. Due to my
carelessness, someone found this photo.”
With that said, Eric handed her a photo.
In the photo, Charmine was in a red
bandeau dress as she stood beside a
handsome and royalty looking man. The
man was dressed in royalty, with every
finger accessorized with glittering
diamond rings. This man was handing a
large diamond in the size of a pigeon’s
egg to Charmine.
She frowned. “Why wasn’t this
destroyed? It they find out…”
“Everything else was destroyed, but it
turns out Simon kept one to himself.
Also, Amelia had gained access to this
photo,” Eric replied as he closed the
folder. “We could silence her or bribe all
the media to stop this from spreading.”
“Hall. It’s not so simple.” Charmine
walked to the table and poured herself a
glass of water. She swirled the glass for a
while before she nonchalantly replied, ”
Since she found it, then let it be. I do hope
she can bear the cost of this discovery,
however.” Her remark held a downplayed
sense of arrogance and malice. 6
Eric frowned. “Do you mean that we’ll
