Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort by Mr Magnate
Hearing her words, Charlotte, who was about to enter the elevator, stood rooted to her spot. She knew what secrets Luna was threatening her with.
She could not imagine the disastrous consequences if the circumstances of her children’s births were revealed.
The media would find out about her hiring a gigolo, and they would definitely put words into her mouth before they spread the news.
When that happened, not only would she have to face Zachary, but the children would also be traumatized.
Furthermore, she had yet to find out whether Zachary was the gigolo that night.
“Please leave. Stop making a ruckus in Divine Corporation.”
The few security guards then dragged Luna out.
“Let go of me. Let go!” Luna continued struggling vehemently as she screamed, “Don’t you know who I am? My husband’s Hector Sterling. How dare you lay your hands on me? I’m going to get my lawyer and sue you!”
“Help! The security guards at Divine Corporation are beating me up. They’re beating me up!”
None of the security guards paid any attention to her words as they continued to drag her out.
Refusing to give up, Luna continued yelling, “Charlotte, are you really planning to hide in there? I’m going to the reporters right away and I’ll-”
Before Luna could finish her threat, Charlotte scuttled out. “Stop making a fuss here. Let’s have a private talk instead.”
“There you are, you finally have the guts to face me,” Luna sneered. “Why should we have a private talk? Are you afraid that I’d expose some ugly details about you? Why didn’t you think of that when you were seducing my husband?”
“You’ve misunderstood me. There’s nothing going on between your husband and me.”
While Charlotte was talking, many of her colleagues had crowded around them. Most of them did not care about the fact that they were about to be late for work; they only wanted to hear more gossips.
Even the security guards were watching them from the side.
Just then, David walked over and whispered, “Charlotte, do you need help?”
“No, I’m fine.” Charlotte did not want to trouble him nor involve him in the mess.
“I’ve misunderstood?” Luna questioned in agitation. “If there’s nothing going on between the two of you, why are you two on a date? Why are you holding hands? Who knows if you’ve done other things with him? Do you think I’m a fool?”
“We met that time to return the bracelet,” Charlotte stated. “You should know how important the collaboration with Divine Corporation is to your husband. If you keep this up, while it’s true it’ll affect me, I’m afraid it’ll affect you worse.”
Hearing that, Luna’s expression froze. She understood Charlotte’s words well, but fury had taken over her mind earlier. That was why she barged into Divine Corporation to curse at Charlotte, hoping to f0rce her out of the building.
Now that she had achieved her aim, it would not be beneficial for her to keep up the maniacal act.
“There’s a café opposite the street. Wait for me there. I’ll be there in ten minutes after I apply for my leave.”
Charlotte then turned to return to the office building.
“Don’t leave!” Luna rushed forward to stop Charlotte but her path was blocked by David.
She was about to start hurling profanities again when David warned, “Mrs. Sterling, the company has informed Mr. Sterling about this matter. I’m sure he’ll be here soon, so it’s best if you stop making a fuss here.”
“Who told you to inform him?” Anger exploded in Luna, but all she could do was to leave.
Meanwhile, Charlotte went to Lucy to apply for her leave.
When she found Lucy, the woman threw a stack of newspaper at her face and said sternly, “Charlotte, your private life has caused a lot of troubles for the company, and it’s affecting the company’s reputation. The higher-ups have notified us that you’ll be suspended temporarily.
“Suspended? Why?” Charlotte promptly explained, “Ms. Wright, this is a misunderstanding. I really didn’t-”
“You don’t need to explain to me,” Lucy interrupted. “It doesn’t matter what the truth is. What matters most is that the company’s reputation has suffered from this. You’ll be suspended until this issue is resolved. This is just the company’s standard operating procedure when handling this kind of problem.”
With that, Lucy turned and left.
Charlotte was at a loss for words. This was a disaster that she never saw coming. I’m innocent! Why is the media spouting nonsense?
Nevertheless, her priority right now was to deal with Luna. Otherwise, should that woman lost her mind and exposed the matter about her children, she would be doomed.
