Zachary managed to jam his foot on the brake pedal in time and his car barely missed the person in
front of the car.
As he frowned, Ember called out to him from the front of the car.
She was not throwing a fit or being hysterical—she merely watched him calmly.
Even so, Zachary did not want anything to do with her.
"Move, or I'll call security."
Ember held his gaze for a while from across the windshield, but she said, ''Call them if you want, and if
you don't mind me coming again.Because I'll do it if you refuse to talk to me."
Zachary narrowed his eyes.
"Are you threatening me?"
"No, I just want to talk to you," Ember replied.
"Do you think that you're in a position to discuss terms?" he asked icily.
"I'm not discussing terms.Can't I just talk to you?"
"No." Zachary refused determinedly.
"I don't want to see you, and I don't want to know a thing about you."
"You're really being merciless even though we were once married, " Ember murmured.
"I've never hated you for destroying my family, I know."
She certainly understood many things after going through so much, and most of all was that what goes
around comes around.
"If anything, you should have taken it out on me, but my parents should have been spared.It's all
because I fell for you and married you, or I'd still be an heiress.How could I be so stupid and so
obsessed with you back then? You're just human, albeit a little better-looking than most, but that should
never have counted.If I could start over, I'd rather be with someone who loves me even if his looks are
average.Shame that I won't even have that chance— my life has become a tragedy since I fell for you."
"It's a tragedy because you were possessive," Zachary replied.
"Probably." Ember simply smiled.
"You heard about me, haven't you?"
Zachary did not answer, though his silence was almost affirmative.
Ember laughed bitterly.
"I'm pathetic, aren't I? After you destroyed my family, my mother became sick and I was penniless.How
else could I save my mother?"
"Is there a point in telling me all this?"
Zachary certainly was not interested in listening to her story.
"There isn't.I just wanted to see if you could feel any sympathy for me, but I was just delusional.You're
now so cold you'd disown your own family, right?"
Ember straightened her clothes and stepped aside then.
"Sorry for bothering you."
Zachary did not hesitate to jam his foot on the gas pedal and leave right then.
Ember remained there, watching as his car sped into the distance with various emotions flooding in her
Zachary glanced at her from the rearview mirror, and saw that she was no longer capricious or spirited
like before, and looked away.
Irene had read through all the files on every employee, as well as the organizational structure of
Hotmesh Research, more or less having a general idea then.
Her work would not go smoothly if she did not make interpersonal relationships work at the office, and
the first thing she must do as director was to make peace with them.She called Finn Crowe to her
office, but he arrived with another man.
Irene did not recognize him and she was unsure if he was an employee.
"He's looking for you," Finn told her.
Irene raised her brow.
"Yeah.He was asking for you at the walkway, so I brought him here."
Irene studied the man from head to toe.
"You're looking for me?"
The man handed her an envelope.
"Are you Irene Spencer?"
"I'm a courier.Please sign on this sheet of paper to acknowledge you have received this item."
"Who's the sender?"
"I don't know."
Irene signed on the paper then, and opened the envelope to find a letter inside.
Even as she wondered if it was Lulu Adams making contact, she noticed that it was not Lulu's
handwriting, and she took out the letter.
