Chapter 132 Calista Had No Way Out
After a few days, Calista didn’t stumble upon those people again near the condominium. She knew that she must’ve been overthinking that night. Soon, this incident slipped her mind.
She just finished filming for the program that was yet to be released. Even if someone were to sabotage her, it would be a strange timing to do so.
Calista received a call from Hector just as she got off from working overtime.
He complained as soon as he got through, “Are you just going to pretend that I’m gone for good if I didn’t contact you first?”
They hadn’t been in touch since they parted at the hospital. He’s been busy recently too, so it slipped his mind as well.
Once he was finally done with his work, he came to realize that this heartless woman didn’t even bother to message him. Hector whining like a woman got Calista.
She laughed, “How’s your injury? Have you gone to the hospital yet? I remembered the doctor told you to redress.”
“If I were to take action only after your reminder, I would’ve been dead a long time ago.”
Calista was busy packing her things so she didn’t answer him.
Hector waited for a few seconds and began to grumble, “Are you there? Why are you so cold toward me? Although you used to be the quiet one back in school, at least you used to be someone who’d stand up for those who needed help. Where did that kind and generous Calista go? It’s only been a few years since we met!”
“Did you call just to complain about me?”
“Of course not. I called to grab supper together, replied Hector nonchalantly. “Come down now. I’m waiting downstairs
“I’m at the studio now. I’m not at home.”
“It’s quite late now though?”
Hector glanced at his watch. It was way past eight now. He rushed over to her place immediately
once be got off work. Initially, he wanted to treat her to dinner.
“Wait a minute, didn’t Yara say you work from home? Where’s your studio? I’ll go fetch you now.”
Calista was taken aback. Now she remembered. She didn’t have the time to tell Yara that she had
gone back to Justa again
“There’s no need for that. I’m driving as well. There’s nowhere to eat near my studio, so just send
me the location once you’ve booked a diner. I’ll be there shortly.”
Calista cleaned the workbench after she hung up. She checked the water and the electricity.
making sure that both were already turned off. She grabbed her keys and left.
The streets were exceptionally quiet during winter. The workshop was nowhere near the city
center, making it even more tranquil at night.
Calista strode toward the basement after she locked the door. She came to a halt when she saw
There weren’t a lot of cars in the basement at this hour. This made the few people beside her car
stand out, even more so with their ‘glow–in–the–dark bleached hair.
Calista was their target after all. Their gaze was fixated on her once she appeared in the basement.
“Ms. Everhart, you’ve got us waiting for quite some time, eh? We’re freezing to death here because of the weather. Why don’t you hand over the car keys and we’ll make ourselves comfy in there?”
said the one who grinned at Calista just a few days ago at her condominium.
Calista froze. She slipped her hand in her bag and gripped her phone.
“I don’t know you.”
“It doesn’t matter, as long as we know who you are,” They approached Calista “In fact, it’s not a big deal. We just wanna ask a favor from you.”
Calista turned and made a break for it. She failed to win some time since they already had their
mind set on her
Despite her attempted escape, she was quickly surrounded by the gang of thugs She couldn’t escape any further due to the natural biological differences between her and the mea
“Chill, we’re just gonna take some photos. We’re not going to do anything else. For the sake of this
shitty weather, we’d advise you to best cooperate with us so we can get it over with ”
Calista held her breath.
“Who sent you?”
She looked around carefully. There wasn’t a single soul in her surroundings except for the gang.
“You’re going against our ethical guidelines. You better keep your hands off this matter. Ever
heard of this saying? The more you know, the greater the risk you’ll be in,” said the leader of the
gang as he waved airily to the others.
“Be gentle. Don’t hurt her and make sure the photos are clear.”
They were grinning at Calista as they closed in on her. She tried to back away, but there were
people behind her as well.
Lucian called Calista immediately as he stepped out of Stansend Manor with an unpleasant
His mother hadn’t been very nice to him for the past few days. Yet, she insisted on him coming
back every night, saying that he’d be so lonely if he were to live in Everglade Manor alone.
What Lucian didn’t expect was that his mother even asked his father to come back. She had been
hinting continuously at him–to apply what he had learned.
It’s easy for his mother to say so as she wasn’t in his shoes. She had no idea that Calista despised
him to the extent that she couldn’t bear to stay near him for a second.
The phone kept ringing until it was about to be automatically cut off. Finally, someone picked up
Before he even had the chance to speak, a sharp noise pierced his ears. Calista was panting
vigorously over the phone.
The phone was hung up in a split second. Lucian’s expression changed in an instant His
expression darkened as he called Calista back immediately.
