But who would that person be?
Not hearing a response from Briana Cameron, Astrid was a bit worried, “Briana, are you listening?”
“Um, I understand. I have something going on here, so I can’t talk right now. Don’t worry about me, I’m fine.”
After hanging up the phone, Briana Cameron turned to look at Maxim.
“I might have needed your help with something. There must have been someone out there fanning the flames. I wanted you to help me investigate where the news of Anastasia’s suicide came from.”
Maxim nodded, “Alright, I’ll have Rayan check immediately.”
After having breakfast, Maxim took her to the company.
When she was about to get off the car downstairs, Maxim suddenly grabbed her hand.
“Briana, if you feel tired, you could take the day off today.”
He had seen the comments from those people online, and he could almost imagine the malicious looks the people in the company would give her.
Briana Cameron chuckled, “I’m fine, I didn’t take this little thing to heart at all.”
“Alright, don’t force yourself if you encounter something you can’t solve.”
If it hadn’t been for Briana Cameron’s intervention, he would have already made those online messages disappear without
“Alright, that’s enough, don’t worry anymore, go to work now.“”
After getting off the car, Briana Cameron walked straight into the company, ignoring the scrutinizing gazes, and went directly into the elevator.
There was no difference between today and yesterday, still no one was willing to share an elevator with her.
Briana Cameron was about to close the elevator door when suddenly someone walked in.
A flicker of surprise flashed in Briana Cameron’s eyes when she saw it was Elliot.
“Mr. Murphy, it was the first time I saw you come so late.”
Briana Cameron always liked to arrive at the company just in time, but Elliot always arrived half an hour early, so they never met at the bottom of the company building.
Elliot smiled sheepishly, “Well, I overslept today.”
After the elevator doors closed, Elliot asked somewhat puzzled, “I see a lot of people who are going to be late, why aren’t they taking the elevator?”
Briana Cameron raised an eyebrow, “Mr. Murphy, do you genuinely not know, or are you pretending not to know?”
“What? I really didn’t understand.”
Briana Cameron pursed her lips, whispering, “Did you know that Anastasia committed suicide at the police station last night?”
“I don’t know, how could she suddenly commit suicide?”
“Perhaps it was because she was now disgraced and could no longer be a designer. Someone deliberately posted her suicide online, and now everyone thinks I was too cold- blooded, pushing Anastasia to the point of suicide.”
Upon hearing this, Elliot immediately furrowed his brows, a flash of anger in his eyes, “What does this have to do with you?! It was clearly Anastasia’s own choice! So those people refused to share an elevator with you because of this?”
Briana Cameron nodded, “Almost there.”
After a few seconds of silence, Elliot suddenly said, “Ms. Cameron, how about I go and apply to the company to issue a statement to clarify things for you?”
“No need, don’t those people know the truth? They just subconsciously sympathize with the weak, thinking that I am aggressive. Besides, I’ve never cared much about my reputation.”
Seeing her calm demeanor, as if she really didn’t care, Elliot couldn’t help but laugh.
“Ms. Cameron, you are the first person I’ve ever met who is so indifferent to everything.”
Briana Cameron turned her head to glance at him, opening
her mouth to say, “I just don’t care about those things that are irrelevant to me.”
