Chapter 222 I Don’t Believe You
Calista couldn’t bother to look at him and said, “It’s not the first time you took her side. I’m not surprised
you’d do it again.”
Lucian looked at her and sneered coldly without another word. After knowing that Lily was behind what happened yesterday, Calista turned and walked away.
Before she left, she asked the manager for footage of the surveillance cameras in the room and all the glasses and opened bottles.
If Skye and Kay had been in the room the whole time, she could easily find out where she was drugged.
The manager answered politely, “I can give you the footage. But Mr. Northwood had sent the glasses and opened bottles for analysis yesterday night. I’ll notify you immediately once the results are out.”
“Which test center?”
Lucian broke his silence and asked, “What are you doing?”
Calista didn’t hide her intentions, knowing that he’d find out anyway, “I’ll get a sample and have someone
else verify it. I don’t trust you.”
She showed no fear or hesitation as she met his furious gaze,
Lucian kept his eyes on her until she turned to look at Paul. Her tone and demeanor changed instantly, contrasting sharply with the bitter attitude she showed towards him.
As the two were about to leave, Lucian reached out and tightly gripped her arm, gritting his teeth, “Wait
Lily was summoned on the busiest night at Luminary Lounge.
Someone in uniform came to her, saying that Lucian was looking for her. But he led her past the noisy entertainment area towards the quiet office area, which made her feel uneasy.
She stopped and asked with a furrowed brow, “Where are you taking me? Didn’t you say Lucian was looking for me?”
The server replied, “We’re here..
He knocked on the door and, upon receiving permission, pushed it open. Everyone else had left the office, learing only Lucian and Calista.
She was overjoyed when Lucian asked for her. Ever since he had made things clear with her at the beginning of the year, he had been ignoring her calls and messages.
secretary even stopped her from entering when she went to Northwood Corporation.
at night was
Now that he was actively reaching out to her, she assumed that whatever transpired last night
He must have realized that Calista was a wild and slutty woman, so he turned to her unyielding devotion, intending to rekindle their past relationship.
Lily didn’t dare to act as smug as before. She carefully applied her makeup in the car and wore her
Her posture, refined from years of dance, was even more graceful now due to her deliberate effort.
However, upon seeing Calista, her confidence faltered, and she toned down her act.
This was not only because she didn’t want to appear overly eager in front of Calista, but also because ever since she entered the room, Lucian hadn’t spared her a glance.
Forcing a smile, Lily asked, “Lucian, you called me here. Is there something you need?”
Lucian lifted his chin, and a cold frown was plastered on his face.
“Not at the moment, but she does.”
Lily’s smile fell when she heard that. This was far from what she had imagined. She thought Lucian would.
be furious and disgusted with Calista.
Did something go wrong last night? She had chosen a random man at Luminary Lounge instead of someone she knew so no one would find evidence against her,
She did not leave her name or contact, so it couldn’t be traced back to her.
Her ideal choice was Paul. His relationship with Calista was always a thorn in Lucian’s side. If they got together, Lucian and Calista would never get together again, but Paul refused.
Though Lily was disappointed, she wasn’t surprised. Some might think Paul would have refused to stoop
so low to win a woman due to his integrity and pride.
But in reality, he was just foolish. Nothing matters once you get what you want.
She calmly turned her gaze to Calista, “Miss Calista, if you wanted to see me, you could have invited me yourself. There’s no need to go to such lengths just to show off. If you truly like Lucian, you should treat his sincerity with respect instead of parading him around like a trophy.”
Calista didn’t bother to engage in such talks. She was already over Lucian. Why would she care about his opinion of her? She pointed at the video and asked bluntly.
“You were the one who spoke to me in the restroom, right?”
Lily was initially nervous due to Calista’s words. She was certain that Calista was already out of it when
she approached her last night.
Not only had she disguised her face, but she also altered her voice. Even then, she wasn’t sure Calista
wouldn’t recognize her.
She thought Calista had obtained some strong evidence but scoffed when she realized what Calista was
“You’re accusing me based on this footage?”
