Wendy was very tough. In the eyes of most people, she was the one who could appear on the board of directors and fight for power by holding her parents‘ urn. She was a cold–blooded person who would say that her parents were cremated so their bones would not be cold.
In the eyes of many people, she was also paranoid who cleaved to Giradia Group and wanted to make it bigger and stronger as if it had become the renewal of her parents‘ life. However, in Alder’s eyes, Wendy was childish.
Alder had seen and heard a lot when growing up in Devendill City.
Wendy was drowned in the death of her parents and couldn’t get out. She believed Giradia Group was the only thing left to her by her parents. She must do her best for it. She never thought the biggest expectation of parents for their children was to let them live happily, not so exhausted.
Alder also carried a lot, but he didn’t force himself to practice hard every day. Alder knew when to relax.
Why should he dig out the painful past for others to see?
So he could let others understand him and show their pity?
Why should he indulge in the sorrow of the past?
As a man who had subdued the vicious men in Devendill Prison with a pair of hands, he wouldn’t be so emotional. In Alder’s view, the most important thing for Wendy to do was to cherish Rayburn, the only old man who cared about her. Therefore, she should be sensible and not let Rayburn worry about her.
Alder felt he should teach Wendy a lesson. In that case, he must see her.
So here he was.
Alder walked into Wendy’s room.
Wendy was working at her desk. Her eyes were red as she stayed up late. The iconic pencil was stuck in her messy hair. She was talking to herself and was planning a series of sophisticated plans to annex the Porter Group alliance.
She was wearing pajamas and looked messy. No one would recognize she was the leader of Giradia Group.
“Why are you here? Get out!” Wendy looked up when she heard footsteps.
She immediately shouted angrily with a livid face after seeing Alder. Her voice was hoarse as if someone had filled her throat with a handful of gravel.
Alder shook his head and said, “Wendy, you look so poor today!”
Wendy said coldly. “Did I ask you to come? Rayburn, where are you? Drive him out!”
Alder walked in front of her and closed her notebook, he said with a faint smile, “You need to rest!”
“I’m not tired. I don’t need your crocodile tears! I know you’re caring about the five billion you invested, not me!” Wendy said disdainfully.
“Of course I care. Otherwise, why do you think I should care about an unpopular lunatic?” Alder put his hand on the notebook and said.
Wendy’s eyes seemed to be redder, with a creepy sneer on her face.
“I will give you all without a penny short!” Wendy said, “Now, put away your hypocrisy and get out of my house!”
Alder shrugged and said, “Do you think I want to come here? Rayburn called me because he was very worried about you.”
Wendy said angrily, “Alder crossed the line!”
Alder was a little unhappy, he said, “Alder is the person who is closest to you in this world, and the person who cares about you the most. You shouldn’t say such harsh words.”
Wendy sneered. “What? You just invested five billion for me. You think you have the right to control what I say now?”
Alder looked at Wendy with impatience and disappointment in his eyes. Wendy also stared at Alder. Her eyes were full of indifference and stubbornness. None of them seemed to be able to convince each other.
When words failed, it was time to use force. So Alder planned to use violence.
Alder still asked patiently, “Are you sure you don’t need to rest?”
Wendy pulled away his hand and opened the notebook again. She didn’t bother to talk at all.
Alder pulled out the pencil on her head.
Wendy suddenly became furious. This pencil seemed to be her treasure. No one could touch it except herself!
Wendy’s outburst was within Alder’s expectations because she would always stick this pencil on her head no matter what occasion she attended. Obviously, this pencil was meaningful to her.
“Give it back to me!” Wendy pounced on like an angry lioness, exuding a terrifying aura.
But Alder was not afraid. No matter how scared she was, she was still a weak woman.
However, he forgot she also had teeth. Alder easily caught Wendy but was bitten by her.
“Damn. Are you losing your mind!” Alder couldn’t help becoming furious and slapped Wendy on her ass.
Alder slapped her hard and made Wendy almost jump from the ground. She couldn’t help but moan in pain.
“Why don’t you have a rest? Why do you let others worry about you!” Alder was upset by Wendy’s attitude today.
As he was bitten, he was more irritated. Alder pushed Wendy onto the table and slapped her butt viciously. It looked like the elders were teaching their naughty children.
Wendy never thought she would be pushed on the table by a man and beaten like a child. She felt so painful as if her flesh was torn. Her tears burst out suddenly. She began to roar in pain.
“It’s for your good to let you take a rest. Why are you so stubborn?”
With several slaps, Wendy collapsed on the table. Her legs were trembling, and she couldn’t even keep her feet.
Wendy cried, but her voice was very small. Her tears kept pouring down from her face.
Alder said, “Who’s your daddy now? Not everyone will spoil you. At least, I won’t!”
Wendy sobbed sadly. At the next second, she seemed to break down and weep aloud.
The pain was just the beginning of her tears. What finally made her cry was the huge pressure on her shoulders and the pain of life.
