Pearl posted all the evidence on the Internet, and everyone was talking about it.
In the end, Abby’s deeds were confirmed, and her failed attempts to harm Pearl became the hottest topic of the year. As the young lady of Flores Firms, this incident made the company’s shares plummet rapidly.
Abby first thought Pearl was just guessing about what she did, but Pearl had real proof.
And so, her perfect image, which she had worked so hard to build, was now destroyed. Plus, she could end up in legal trouble
Susan was very shocked and said, “Abby. I never knew you could do something like this.”
She never thought Abby could be so cruel, even though she’d known her since Abby was a baby.
Pearl looked at Abby and smiled. “You tried to hurt me at Death Valley and spread rumors about me on the Internet. Why did you do all that, Abby?”
Abby knew she could no longer clear her name. Crying, she explained, “I’m sorry. My friends told me to do these things to keep Rick for myself. I did them because I love him so much. I know I was wrong…”
Pearl remained calm, inwardly amused. “So, because you love Richard, you thought it was okay to drug him and sleep with him?
Abby stopped crying and stared at Pearl–a sudden bad feeling hit her.
Richard’s expression darkened. “You’re the one who drugged me, Abby?”
For a moment, Abby was struck speechless. She realized that explaining herself would come off as mere excuses because the Waldorfs had already sided with Pearl after seeing the evidence. They would never listen to her now.
With her head down, Abby was filled with despair.
Pearl said, “This doesn’t concern me, and please don’t get on my back again.” She was about to leave the house when Susan suddenly stopped her.
Pearl turned around. “What’s wrong, Madam?”
Susan spoke up hesitantly, “Pearl, I know Abby did wrong. But she did it because she loves Rick too much. Let me say sorry on her behalf. Can you… please delete those posts online? I don’t want Abby’s reputation to be ruined.”
Susan had liked Abby for a long time, and Abby had always treated her with genuine kindness. She really couldn’t bear to see Abby in such a miserable state.
Pearl scoffed. “So, you’re saying her mistakes are understandable, but I was forced to leave your house when I was wrongly accused without any proof?”
Was Pearl such a pushover?
Feeling awkward, Susan sighed and said slowly, “I’m begging you, please?”
However, Pearl glanced at Abby coldly. “I wouldn’t have messed with her if she didn’t mess with me. She’s just reaping what she has sown,
Pearl then left and ignored Susan’s apology.
Even though Susan was sorry, Pearl knew the Waldorfs would still help Abby. She felt cold when she saw the news about Abby slowly disappear from the Internet.
