A Beauty With Multiple Masks Chapter 1052

Chapter 1052 Fallen For It

Trevor sneered. “Ever since you forced me to stand Vinson up, I had to use all my money to buy building materials available in Horington. I had to build up relationships with various building materials companies. All of these need money. Even my life is horrible now, not to mention yours! If Vinson doesn’t come to buy from me, I’m going to end up just like you! Larson Group’s going to go bankrupt and close down!”

That made the anger in Cecilia die down a little. She then told Wendy, “Wendy, your uncle is having trouble with his finances as well. Try to save up as much as you can with that ten thousand. Once Vinson’s project needs material, they’ll come pleading at your uncle’s doorstep. Everything will be fine once your uncle starts raking in profits again.”

Upon hearing that, Wendy fell silent despite her displeasure.

At that moment, she found out what it felt like to live off someone else.

It felt horrible, and it was much worse than when Arielle had slapped her.

That incident had only been humiliating, but living off someone else was indescribable agony.

Right then, Donovan came out of the school.

She knew that Donovan often headed to the restaurant opposite the campus for his meals because he was not used to the food in the cafeteria.

As she had expected, Donovan was out.

Regardless of everything, Maxwell University was her last hope. She could not let that opportunity slip by her. She was determined to return to her good life from before.

Thus, Wendy steeled herself and tamped down all her emotions before slapping a smile onto her face.

“Mr. Baxter!”

Donovan was still irked by what he had done to Queenie out of frustration the other night. When he raised his head, he saw Wendy, and for a moment, he thought he was hallucinating.

Isn’t Wendy in jail? Why is she here?

Noting the surprise in Donovan’s eyes, Wendy gave him a bitter smile before putting on a miserable look. “You’re not hallucinating. I’m out of jail.”

Donovan’s lips parted, but he gulped before asking, “Is your family fine?”

Wendy shook her head and let a tear fall.

At that time of the day, many were at the gates of the campus. Thus, many people were looking at Wendy and Donovan.

After what happened at the auditorium, no one greeted Donovan with respect even if they encountered him.

Once he realized that they were attracting the attention of others, he sighed and said, “Let’s continue this at the restaurant.”

Wendy nodded and followed Donovan to the restaurant.

Donovan deliberately asked to be seated in a private room. Once the two of them sat down, Wendy began sobbing out, “Someone set us up. Someone’s out there, determined to doom my family. That’s we were targeted by the Specialized Forces.”

Donovan cocked his head to the side, baffled. “Someone set you up? But the news on the internet…”

Wendy scoffed, “Do you believe in news on the internet too? I just found out that Vinson is the captain of the Specialized Forces. Back then, my mother wanted to matchmake me with Vinson. I’m afraid that Vinson must have been annoyed by it, so he purposely had the Specialized Forces involved in it. You know, no businessman is truly innocent. But my father never did anything terrible. The news exaggerated everything.”

The mention of Vinson’s name made Donovan’s brows furrow more and more as hatred emerged in his eyes.

He then cast Wendy a look of sympathy.

“So that’s what happened. Are you okay?”

Wendy shook her head. “Vinson was trying to kill us all, but he couldn’t find fault with me and my mother. He couldn’t pin anything on us, and that’s why we were released. However, all our family assets have been seized. Mr. Baxter, I’m left with nothing now…”
