Have You Offended Anyone Lately

Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 180

Fiona had hired a criminal last time to rape Janet. However, her plan was exposed and ruined. Since then, she couldn’t find a chance to vent her anger. Later, after a lot of thinking, she devised this scheme. She was determined to take revenge this time.

The Lind family had raised Janet. But now, the dog was going to ride on its master. She couldn’t let that happen.

However, the previous experience had taught her a lesson. Fiona restrained her emotions now. She had others to execute the plan now and was sure no one would find out she was the mastermind.

When Fiona heard the news that the fraudsters had caused trouble in Janet’s company, she was ecstatic. After all, the men were dangerous people. They were all experienced enforcers who would go to any extent for money.

Even if the crisis couldn’t destroy Janet, it would definitely ruin her life and reputation.

Fiona hated how Janet had her way with everything by putting on an innocent face. She felt the woman was a master at faking innocence. She behaved as if she were on a mission to let the entire world know that the Lind family had ill-treated her.

‘Now, everyone could see through her pretense. This conniving b***h would lose her foothold in the Larson Group. That’s for sure’

A triumphant smile emerged on Fiona’s face as she thought her plan had succeeded this time. She didn’t want to contact the fraudsters. The less she got involved in the matter, the better.

One day, she saw the news on TV that the police had launched a crackdown on several fraud groups. Although Fiona was not sure if it included the fraud group she had hired, dread and unease settled in the pit of her stomach. The fear was eating her up.

All of a sudden, Fiona recalled what had happened to the last man she hired. She broke into a cold sweat and began squirming with fear.

Fiona abandoned her previous plan and called the fraud group.

The phone rang, but no one answered. Finally, she sensed something was wrong and slumped on the sofa helplessly.

Bernie flipped the pages of the newspaper and muttered, “The fraud groups are rampant now. They deserve it,” he said, looking at Fiona.

Seeing the dread on her pallid face, he arched an eyebrow and asked, “Did you do anything wrong again?”

As soon as Bernie finished speaking, his phone rang.

“Hello. What can I do for you?” Bernie asked respectfully. After all, he was talking to a powerful man.

A shiver ran down Fiona’s spine as she looked at Bernie.

“What? No. But everything went on well. Why have you decided to withdraw the investment? We reached an agreement before, didn’t we?” Bernie l****d his lips and wiped the sweat on his face. Then, he put down the newspaper and leaned back on the sofa.

Bernie had worked so hard to reach the refinancing agreement. With this money, he could reopen the abandoned plastic factory and hopefully gradually get the family business back on track.

He heard a soft sigh from the other end of the line. “Anyway, we haven’t signed the contract yet. You better take care of your business. Please don’t come to us again in the future.”

With that, the man hung up the phone.

Judging from his resolute tone, Bernie understood the man had made up his mind.

Bernie was pacing back and forth in the living room when his phone rang again.

Another company had also called to cancel their partnership.

Bernie could tell that they were all in a hurry to cut ties with his company. His stomach churned with anxiety. The relentless phone calls turned his throat dry, but all his efforts were in vain. He couldn’t convince them.

The phone calls continued; Bernie grew anxious and worried with every passing moment. The partnering companies were willing to even pay a high penalty fee to distance themselves from the Lind family.

Bernie’s face turned ashen pale as he continued to wipe his sweat in despair.

Bernie had been a part of the business circle for several years. His father had laid the foundation for the company in the early years. Now, the technological advancement and change in trends worsened the situation of his company. However, Bernie was sure that wasn’t the reason why his partners had chosen to abandon him.

“We’ve been friends for so many years. Can you at least tell me what happened?” Bernie’s voice trembled.

“I’m sorry, but I can’t. He is a powerful man. But I don’t understand. You two are not supposed to have any interaction. Well, I suggest you reflect on your actions. Have you offended anyone lately?” said the man on the phone.

Bernie couldn’t think of anyone except for a few influential families that would ruin the lives of the people who rubbed them the wrong way. But Bernie didn’t remember offending any one of them.
