Episode 68

(Actually him (3)

It didn't occur to him that Violet was a high class lady. Even though she was in designer clothes, she didn't wear any valuable jewelry nor emit an unreachable aura. Now that she was in his car, the driver assumed that she led a comfortable life, but far from being upper class. He guessed that the people from respectable or wealthy families never took a taxi in their lives.    

 "Tina is not that sort of girl. There must be some misunderstanding,"  Violet defended Tina. 'Even though I only met her several times and she was unfriendly, I don't think she is a loose woman who would have sex with strangers. Besides, what about those pictures? Who took them?' she pondered.     

"So you know her?" the man asked, his voice carrying evident suspicion and contempt. With a tinge of scornful smile written on his face, he voiced his opinion,"You're too naive. Nine out of ten rich girls are self-indulgent. They have lived with comfort since they were born. They may look like well-behaved ladies, but who knows their true colors?"  

"What if GR Group was set up? Have you ever thought about that? Suppose what you said are true, but why did the media only report the negative news on Tina? 

Don't you think it's suspicious?" Violet blurted out her doubts. She didn't fathom the whole situation, but she just felt something was wrong. According to what she learnt, she believed that Tina wasn't a loose woman. That was why she tried to defend Tina.     

"Well,"  the driver hesitated. After mulling for a while, he continued,"Your assumption makes sense. I heard that there are many grudges between rich families. Perhaps the Gu family offended some big shot, so that guy took his revenge on Tina. Who knows?"    

Violet didn't respond. She looked out the window, hoping to arrive at the GR Group as soon as posible.    

 The taxi stopped outside the GR Group's building and Violet got out of the cab. 

Spotting that a few reporters still guarded the front exit, Violet decided not to enter the building from the front door. She was afraid that the reporters might make up stories once they saw her.   

Knowing another way to the building, she went straight to the side entrance.     

As she was about to enter the building, she was stopped by two security personnel.     

"Only staff are allowed to enter,"  one security said coldly. Recently, many people tried to sneak into the company. The security obeyed their boss's order and wouldn't allow any outsiders in.    

 "I worked here and my name is Violet Chu. I have something urgent and I need to meet Mr. Roger now,"  Violet explained, not intending to break in.    

 "Violet Chu?" the other security guard repeated Violet's name.    

 "Yes, I'm Violet Chu,"  Violet replied immediately.     

The guard said to the other one beside him,"She worked here once. She isn't a reporter. I heard about her before."    

The other security guard surveyed Violet up and down. 'She doesn't look like those annoying reporters, ' he thought.   

"Come in." They finally let her through.   

  "Thank you guys. Thank you,"  Violet said gratefully. Relieved, she strode to the lift.    

 She took the elevator and reached Roger's office. When she was at the door, she heard Roger yelling at his assistants angrily.    

 Violet stopped outside and knocked on the door gingerly.    

 Roger looked towards the door. He was stupefied with amazement at the sight of Violet. With his enlarged eyes, he asked,"What brought you here, Violet?" 

   "Well, Mr. Roger,"  Violet faltered, as she was at a loss for words. Besides, Roger's assistants were around.   

  "Come in,"  Roger said, as he softened his voice.     

Looking back at the assistants, Roger put on a stern expression. In a furious tone, he commanded,"Leave us now. Without my permission, don't let anyone in, including my mother."  

"Yes, Mr. Roger,"  the two assistants replied and then took their leave.   

  Violet entered the room. Once an assistant closed the door, she hurried to Roger and stopped in front of his desk. Fixing her eyes on Roger, she asked with a worried expression,"What's going on, Roger? Did Tina really..."   

 Violet didn't finish her sentence. Tina was his sister, after all. She thought it improper to mention the news which, to this minute was dragging Tina's name in the mud.    

 "I don't know. We haven't found Tina yet. She didn't come home last night. Since my mother found out about the stock drop, she had been taking medication to lessen the stress,"  Roger answered with his knotted eyebrows. This time he was caught unprepared. He felt like he had been trapped in a heavy shower without carrying his umbrella.    

 "What do you think of this?" Violet asked, frowning. She didn't speak out her speculations. Roger was a shrewd man. She was certain that he had some idea about this matter.   

"Someone must be behind this. But I haven't found out who that person is yet. This person wanted to hurt Tina and attempted to ruin my family. It looks like this person has a powerful background,"  Roger replied. He had read the news and checked the stock market. After some reflection, he didn't think it was an accident. He was sure that someone had organized this secretly.   

  Violet understood quickly what he meant. However, she didn't make any comments. 'Whether that person wanted revenge or not, I can't get involved in it since it is a family issue, ' she thought.   

  "Well, then, do you have any idea how the GR Group will get through this?" Violet asked. 'If GR Group needs any support, I will ask Uncle Wilson, Uncle Derek or even Uncle Mond for help. I'm sure that they won't hesitate to give a hand, ' she thought.     

"There is one way,"  Roger answered firmly. After deliberating for a while, he went on,"There is an investment company which is founded and operating abroad, and the CEO is Francis. I heard that he is born abroad and of mixed blood. At present, he hasn't invested in any companies yet. If he is willing to help, perhaps our crisis can be solved."  

"Francis An,"  Violet iterated the name. 'I seem to have heard this name somewhere. But I can't remember, ' she mulled.     

Roger typed on the keyboard, and a page showed up. With a click, he shot Violet a glance while saying,"Here he is."    

Violet walked over to Roger quickly, and then looked at the screen. Looking shocked, she exclaimed,"Are you sure?"
