Back at the hospital, Grace was filled with anxiety, her mind in chaos.
She recalled Chloe’s eerie words and anxiously bit her nails while pacing in the hospital room.
“No… I can’t let this continue like this! Chloe is now the heiress of the Thorp Group, and she’s cunning and devious. She already knows about my time in Nialzuct, and she might dig up more soon!”
She couldn’t sit idly by, she had to take action!
So, Grace nervously dialed Yates’s phone.
It rang for a while before someone answered, “What’s the matter, calling so late…
“Yates! Chloe is investigating me right now, and she might soon discover your connection to me!”
Grace’s eyes were red with anxiety, her throat dry as if it were on fire. “You must leave Medo immediately, the sooner, the better!”
“Hmph… You’re not trying to get rid of me, are you? Let me tell you, if I can’t get the money, I won’t give up.”
“If Chloe finds out about your connection to me, my engagement with Joseph will be completely ruined! By then, you won’t get even 700 thousand dollars!” Grace gritted her teeth and growled.
“Alright, alright… I’ll trust you this time. But don’t play tricks, or…”
“I promise you won’t get any less money than I agreed to! Let’s avoid unnecessary complications for the time being and not contact each other!”
After saying that, Grace hung up the phone, but her hand was still trembling
She calmed herself down and called her mother, Willow.
“Mom, come to the hospital right away. I have something important to discuss with you!”
On the other side, the phone belonging to Yates was now black-screened.
Yates had been confined in the underground cellar for these past few days, closely guarded, with no way to escape.
But fortunately, he had successfully moved from a hanging position to a seated one. Even this small change made him feel like kneeling down and kowtowing to Chloe.
After all, if he continued to hang upside down, he might end up with a brain hemorrhage and become a vegetable.
“Not bad, I see your acting skills are getting better and better.” Chloe handed the phone to Jordan, raising an eyebrow teasingly.
“No no no… working for Miss… it’s only right.” Yates’s face turned pale, fearing that his head might roll off.
He had just lost the use of two fingers, becoming disabled, and he didn’t want to lose his feet too.
“In a few days, it will be Grace’s birthday.”
Chloe leisurely sat in her chair, her beautiful legs crossing elegantly. “By then, I’ll need your cooperation to stage a play.”
“If you perform well, you’ll make amends, and I’ll send you to prison for rehabilitation. If you don’t perform well. punishment will be even worse. I’ll send you straight to the King of Hell”
“I understand… I understand… I’ll do whatever Miss says. Your word is my command!” Yates’s cold sweat was flowing, and he nodded like a chicken pecking at rice.
Chloe pursed her lips and smiled, ‘I heard you’ve been eating only one bun every day? Tsk tsk, how can you endure that? Jordan, bring the food over.”
In no time, Jordan placed a food tray in front of Yates.
There were not only four hat buns but also a roasted chicken and a battle of beer!
After days of eating only cold buns, Yates’s face had turned green with hunger.
Now, he stared at the roasted chicken with tears and drool streaming down.
“Go ahead and eat. It’s a reward from me.” Jordan said coldly, placing the plate in front of him like serving dog food.
Yates swallowed his saliva, looking at Chloe with tears in his eyes and asked mournfully, “Miss… is this a feast before my
After coming out of the “black cell,” Chloe stretched lazily, feeling utterly exhausted.
“Let’s go, back home.”
“Why, Miss, did you prepare a meal for that scoundrel?”
Jordan recalled the events of that night, and his heart ached as if it were being twisted. His eyes had a hint of redness as he said. “Those kinds of profit-seeking, heartless beasts, it’s too good for them even to cat sh*”
“To bring down Grace, I need Yates’s assistance.”
Chloe yawned and said, “These days, he’s been suffering here, and he must hate Grace and me”
“But if I show him a little kindness when he’s on the brink of a breakdown, he’ll be grateful to me and shift all his hatred onto
“At that point, he’ll put in all his effort to take revenge on her.”
“Miss, you’re brilliant!”
Jordan couldn’t help but praise her, then chuckled, “I can’t wait to see them tear each other apart!”
One week later.
Chloe had just finished inspecting the restaurant and returned to her office, satisfied with her work. She decided to reward herself with a few rounds of gaming to relax.
Since she took over the hotel, nearly half a year had passed. The hotel had been thriving, and business was booming. Not only had it successfully passed the star rating assessment without losing any stars, but it had also earned the title of “Most Popular Hotel of the Year.”
However, this was still not enough for her. What she wanted to achieve was the “Best Hotel of the Year,” a title that the Sawle Group’s hotel had held for five consecutive years. It was time for the Thorp Group to take over.
With the turn of the tide, Chloe was here, and it was time for the Thorp Group to shine.
In recent days. Chloe had been interviewed by three well-known domestic media outlets. Jordan had never expected that Miss would make a public appearance, which was contrary to her usual low-profile style.
However, Chloe had her reasons for doing so.
She knew that if she wanted to become the CEO of the KS Group, her status as Stefan’s beloved daughter might not be enough to win over everyone. So she couldn’t remain hidden as a leader behind the scenes. She had to step forward and make her accomplishments visible to everyone in the KS Group.
Stefan had given her control of the hotel as a stepping stone, and she was determined to make the most of this opportunity.
At this moment, Chloe was on a winning streak in her game. She was about to call Jordan to bring her more coffee when she realized that Jordan was away on an important mission.
One week had passed, and Grace’s birthday banquet was just two days away, but Jordan had not yet returned.
Chloe smiled as she tapped her delicate fingers on the desk.
She knew her calculations were flawless.
So she had the patience to wait.
A phone call came in,
Chloe lifted her eyes and saw that it was a call from her adorable disciple, Rose. She answered with a smile.
“Rose, do you have some good things to offer your master again?*
Rose abandoned her usual haughty and fashionable demeanor, adopting a sweet and crisp tone. “I’ve prepared some tea and homemade snacks for you, as well as some top-quality Longjing tea. Do you have time to visit my place today? I want to treat you-”
“Humph, you must have just received the design sketches for Rozabela’s new season’s high-fashion collection. Are you inviting me over to review them for you?” Chloe saw through her disciple’s intentions right away.
“Oh, Master, you see through everything” Rose pouted playfully.
*Rose, in fact, your skills are already very high. You don’t need me to guide you anymore. You’re now an idol to countless junior designers, a big name in the fashion industry.”
Chloe encouraged her, speaking sincerely, “You just need to follow your own ideas. If I dictate and micromanage, it won’t
reflect your design’s uniqueness. It will lose its essence.”
“Have confidence in yourself, Miss Rose!”
“Thank you, Master… I will never forget that without you, I wouldn’t have achieved what I have today.”
Rose, as humble as she had been in the past when she was unknown, still regarded Sharon as her eternal idol
“In fact, Master, there’s something else I want to tell you, but I’m afraid you’ll be angry when you hear it.”
Rose hesitated and then gritted her teeth, saying, “Just an hour ago, that little b*tch Grace came to pester me for clothes. again. She picked the silver one-shoulder evening gown I have hanging in the design room. She’s so shameless!”
“You lent it to her? Chloe asked calmly.
“Yes… so I came to apologize to Master Rose’s voice weakened.
“I understand you very well. You, like me, don’t do things for nothing. You have your goals and reasons for everything you do.” Chloe had no intention of blaming her.
“The dress she borrowed, although it’s a high-end design, it’s already last year’s outdated model. Moreover, it doesn’t fit her body shape at all. Even so, she insists on wearing it!”
Rose snorted coldly, “I told her that the high-end evening gowns designed by me are all precious one-of-a-kind pieces. She can borrow them, but if she dares to make any alterations to my design, even just using a safety pin, I will make her pay five times the price!”
“Will there be any issues with her wearing such an ill-fitting dress?” Chloe asked lazily, her beautiful eyes half-closed. “If there are any problems, it’s her problem, not mine. She’s the one who will be embarrassed. Right, Master?”
