Being Pursued By Ex-husband chapter 127

After taking a look at the post, Sophia commented, “Poor writing skills.”

On the other end of the phone, Katherine chuckled. “Soph, do you want to teach him how to behave?”

“I don’t want to waste my time,” Sophia replied in a flippant manner.

Judging from the writing, it was obvious that the writer was from the entertainment industry.

Sophia turned the screen off. “Is Bethany with you guys these days?”

It had been quite a while since she last heard someone mention Bethany. Katherine did not expect that Sophia would suddenly mention her, and she was a little taken aback. “Yes, she is. Why? Does she have something to do with this matter?”

Sophia smiled. “Not bad. A new year, a new you. You’ve become much smarter.”

Katherine understood that Sophia was mocking her intelligence and huffed in exasperation. ”Previously, you said you wanted to wait for her to get a taste of success before dragging her down. Hence, if this matter doesn’t have anything to do with her, you wouldn’t have brought her up.”

After finishing her analysis, she asked eagerly, “How do you intend to kick her ass this time?”

Upon hearing that, Sophia immediately burst out laughing. “I’m not the gang leader of some beggar sect. Why would I want to keep finding trouble for her?”

I don’t know how to go about doing that, either.

Katherine’s lips curled downward. “She has done something like this to you. How can you still tolerate her?”

“I can’t.”

“Then why haven’t you taught her a lesson?” asked Katherine.

Sophia nonchalantly said, “What’s the rush? Haven’t you heard people say that the parents are responsible for their children’s misdeeds?”

On the other end of the line, Katherine paused momentarily before coming to a realization. “How smart! Sophia, you’re trying to fight fire with fire!” she complimented.

“Not bad. You even know how to use the idiom accurately,” Sophia praised.

Katherine was so infuriated by her words that she was rendered speechless.

I’ll sever ties with her for two days!

After ending the call, Sophia’s mood lifted.

As humans, we all have to find entertainment somehow.

She initially planned to wait for Bethany to achieve success before dragging her down. However, since Bethany decided to make a move on her, she did not have to hold back any longer.

Sophia was about to phone Yvonne, but the latter suddenly called her.

Sophia’s lips curled slightly as she answered the call. “Good morning, Ms. Leighton.”

“Good morning, Ms. Yarrow. Yesterday’s live stream has already gone viral on the internet. Do you need me to suppress the trending topic?” Yvonne answered.

“There’s no need for that. Later on, I’ll post something online. You merely need to use the company’s account to repost it,” instructed Sophia.

“Yes, Ms. Yarrow.”

“By the way, did Tobias ask to see me sometime back?” asked Sophia.

Everyone wanted to meet Suny from the Sunshine Group.

Hearing Sophia’s words, Yvonne immediately understood her intention. “I’ll arrange for you to have lunch with him the day after, is that okay?”

“Sure,” agreed Sophia.

Expedite had been struggling financially for the past six months. Tobias was like a cat on hot bricks, looking high and low for investors.

In fact, he had already contacted Prosperity Enterprise and Sunshine Group.

However, he was a sly and cunning man. He needed money, but he refused to give up his power and rights.

On tha othar and of tha phona, Katharina chucklad. “Soph, do you want to taach him how to bahava?”

“I don’t want to wasta my tima,” Sophia rapliad in a flippant mannar.

Judging from tha writing, it was obvious that tha writar was from tha antartainmant industry.

Aftar finishing har analysis, sha askad aagarly, “How do you intand to kick har ass this tima?”

Upon haaring that, Sophia immadiataly burst out laughing. “I’m not tha gang laadar of soma baggar sact. Why would I want to kaap finding troubla for har?”

I don’t know how to go about doing that, aithar.

Katharina’s lips curlad downward. “Sha has dona somathing lika this to you. How can you still tolarata har?”

“I can’t.”

“Than why havan’t you taught har a lasson?” askad Katharina.

Sophia nonchalantly said, “What’s tha rush? Havan’t you haard paopla say that tha parants ara rasponsibla for thair childran’s misdaads?”

On tha othar and of tha lina, Katharina pausad momantarily bafora coming to a raalization. “How smart! Sophia, you’ra trying to fight fira with fira!” sha complimantad.

“Not bad. You avan know how to usa tha idiom accurataly,” Sophia praisad.

Katharina was so infuriatad by har words that sha was randarad spaachlass.

I’ll savar tias with har for two days!

Aftar anding tha call, Sophia’s mood liftad.

As humans, wa all hava to find antartainmant somahow.

Sha initially plannad to wait for Bathany to achiava succass bafora dragging har down. Howavar, sinca Bathany dacidad to maka a mova on har, sha did not hava to hold back any longar.

Sophia was about to phona Yvonna, but tha lattar suddanly callad har.

Sophia’s lips curlad slightly as sha answarad tha call. “Good morning, Ms. Laighton.”

“Good morning, Ms. Yarrow. Yastarday’s liva straam has alraady gona viral on tha intarnat. Do you naad ma to supprass tha tranding topic?” Yvonna answarad.

“Thara’s no naad for that. Latar on, I’ll post somathing onlina. You maraly naad to usa tha company’s account to rapost it,” instructad Sophia.

“Yas, Ms. Yarrow.”

“By tha way, did Tobias ask to saa ma somatima back?” askad Sophia.

Evaryona wantad to maat Suny from tha Sunshina Group.

Haaring Sophia’s words, Yvonna immadiataly undarstood har intantion. “I’ll arranga for you to hava lunch with him tha day aftar, is that okay?”

“Sura,” agraad Sophia.

Expadita had baan struggling financially for tha past six months. Tobias was lika a cat on hot bricks, looking high and low for invastors.

In fact, ha had alraady contactad Prosparity Entarprisa and Sunshina Group.

Howavar, ha was a sly and cunning man. Ha naadad monay, but ha rafusad to giva up his powar and rights.

Now that half a year had passed, Expedite was on the verge of collapsing. If Tobias still could not manage to secure investors, the shares he held were useless.

Sophia was unwilling to take over Expedite, as it was currently in such bad condition. Expedite had already been facing a lot of problems internally since a few years ago. However, Tobias was determined to venture into the foreign market and refused to resolve the problems they were facing. Hence, at this point, Expedite had been completely liquidated and had no assets to speak of. To put it simply, it was nothing but an empty shell then.

To be honest, even if Tobias were willing to let go of his shares, there might not be anyone who would be willing to take over.

As businessmen, everyone’s aim was to rake in profits. Nobody wanted to take over a company that would not guarantee them profits.

“And one more thing, Ms. Yarrow. Mr. Quigley said that he has already filed a complaint to court. Currently, Old Mrs. Sharp and Rupert have been detained,” reported Yvonne.

“Okay,” Sophia answered.

“Keep a watchful eye on the Sharp family,” she added.

After all, when one is cornered, one might act rashly. Who knows what they’ll do?

“All right, Ms. Yarrow.”

After ending the call, Sophia sat on the couch for a while. Then, she went upstairs and changed into another outfit. She wanted to go to Specter Entertainment and drive the car back.

Sophia pondered over whether she should wear her scarf. The weather was great, but there was a strong wind blowing outside.

When she turned around, the hem of her clothes accidentally brushed against the bag she had placed on the stool. The bag dropped to the ground, and a jewelry box rolled out of it.

Sophia was astonished at the sight of it. She remembered that jewelry box, as she had placed a bracelet in it just the day before.

She had intended to gift it to Katherine to celebrate the completion of the film. However, Delilah sold it off. Sophia was thinking of finding another gift for Katherine, but unexpectedly, the jewelry box was back in her possession now.

Sophia bent down to pick up the box and then opened it to find the very same bracelet inside.

She raised her brows in confusion and clicked her tongue. “That’s strange… How can a lost bracelet find its way back?”

Obviously, a lost bracelet could not find its way back. It was clear that Alexander was the one who got the bracelet back.

As for how he managed to do that, no one knew except himself.

This bracelet was part of a jewelry collection named “Camellia”, and it was a worldwide limited edition. There were only fifty such bracelets in the world, and Sophia only managed to buy one after getting Yvonne to contact several people.

It was impossible for Alexander to buy another bracelet in such a short period of time. Therefore, it could only mean one thing — this bracelet was the one she had originally intended to give to Katherine.

Flipping over the bracelet, Sophia inspected its buckle. There was a tiny logo at the back with a serial number written on it.

The bracelet that she had bought was the thirty-fifth bracelet.

Indeed, there was the number thirty-five written on it.

Sophia picked up the bag and held the jewelry box in her hand. She paced the room, wondering if she should return the bracelet to Alexander.

Even though the bracelet was originally hers, she lost it after that. Alexander must have spent tons of money in order to get it back.

However, Katherine had been eyeing this bracelet for a very long time. She had even contacted many people, trying to buy it but to no avail.

It was pure luck that Sophia ‘had managed to buy it. All along, it was meant for Katherine.

Forget it, I’ll owe Alexander one for this.

She did not have any other choice, as she knew that Katherine really liked this bracelet.

Fearing that she would lose the bracelet once more, Sophia decided not to bring it out. Instead, she placed it inside her cupboard at home.

When she left her house, it was already a little over nine in the morning. There was not much traffic on the road because she managed to avoid the peak hour. Hence, it only took her twenty minutes to reach Specter Entertainment.

After paying the cab fee, she held her bag and entered the building.

On that day, the IP development department had a meeting regarding the three books that were revised.

Sophia did not intend to join them at first, but since she was already there, she decided to listen in.

After the meeting was over, it was half-past eleven, the time for lunch.

Sadie walked beside Sophia and asked, “Ms. Yarrow, what do you want to have for lunch?”

Sophia turned to look at her and smiled. “Don’t worry about it. I’ll settle my lunch myself.”

Following that, she changed the topic. “A book like that is popular in the market?”

That book was melodramatic and did not have any logic in it. She wondered if she was out of touch with society and could not keep up with the times any longer.

Sadie was a little embarrassed. “Nowadays, such books are in trend. If we choose such books, we’re bound to profit from it.”

Sophia knitted her brows. “The company invested so much money not because we want to do something that’s foolproof,” she chided.

This was the first time that Sophia was so strict toward her. Sadie knew that Sophia was unsatisfied with the book they had selected. “So what should we do?”

“These three books are terrible. Our job is to do IP development, not to earn money based on the popularity of the original book. I want you to choose a few books that have great quality. The plot and the characters themselves have to be interesting,” Sophia replied.

“I understand,” said Sadie.

Sophia had quickly scanned through the three books the previous night. The plots were indeed in trend, but they were nothing special. It would be impossible for any of them to become a best-seller.

When she reached the door, Sophia stopped and stared at Sadie. The latter looked terrified. Upon seeing that, Sophia chuckled. “Why are you so afraid? I don’t bite.”

Sadie felt a little embarrassed. “I’m sorry. I won’t let you down next time,” she promised.

Sophia grinned. “Okay. What do you want to eat for lunch? I’ll buy you a meal.”

Upon hearing her words, Sadie was so happy that she froze. She stared at Sophia in disbelief and stammered, “I-I’m fine with anything. You can pick something you like.”

“All right, don’t mind if I do!”

Sadie nodded profusely. “Sure.”

Finally, I managed to have a meal with my goddess!

Joy bubbled up inside of her, and she could hardly contain her happiness.
