Chapter 202 First Believe
Kelly asked, “Hey, babe, did you see the news?”
Her best friend Gianna replied, “I saw it, babe. You pulled this one off, didn’t you? These pictures of Alaia and Emily are something else. I have to admit, those journalists have some skills.”
Each photo was taken incredibly sensually, stirring the curiosity of onlookers to the fullest. Kelly chuckled, then continued, “I’ve already arranged this news. It won’t be taken off the trending list for at least three days. If they want fame that badly, let them have it this time.” Gianna couldn’t help but admire her friend’s determination. When Kelly set her mind to something, she went all out.
Gianna felt a sense of security with such a good friend by her side.
Kelly asked, “Thanks, sis! When are you coming back to Silver City?”
“I still have some business to handle in Tite, so I’ll probably be there until the end of the month. I’ll contact you and Kaylee when I’m back.”
“Sounds good. We’re always ready to welcome you back and give you a warm reception.”
After exchanging pleasantries, they hung up the phone.
Meanwhile, the Rivera family’s stock prices continued to plummet due to the impact of the Alaia incident. In half a day, their market value had evaporated by billions.
In the Rivera Group’s top–floor office, Jason reported the latest situation. “Mr. Rivera, I’ve informed all the media outlets in Silver City, and they’ve deleted the photos and texts posted under their account.”
Jason continued, “But this matter has had a massive impact, and the online posts can’t be completely removed. Someone is fueling the fire, and the topic won’t disappear from the trending list. The reporters have already swarmed Rivera Group downstairs, and most of them want to interview you.”
As he continued, Jason’s tone noticeably dropped.
Levi’s head was still bandaged, but his aggressive demeanor remained unchanged. This kind of blatant targeting was not lost on him.
Levi couldn’t overlook the situation with his many years in the business. So, he cut to the chase and inquired, “Do we know who’s responsible for all of this?”
Jason cast a cautious glance at him and hesitated to speak.
Levi said, “Speak up, I want the truth.”
Jason finally took a deep breath and said, “It seems like it’s Ms. Lewis.”
“What did you say? Gianna?” Levi’s tone was disbelieving.
Jason nodded cautiously. At this moment, he dared not provoke Levi.
But just as Levi was about to erupt in anger, he thought of something. “It’s impossible. Why would Gianna target the Rivera Group?”
She would have done so long ago if she wanted to, not wait until today.
She would have acted if Chaim had tried to sabotage the Rivera Group.
She didn’t have to wait until now. Was there another reason?
Levi’s mind raced. The only possible explanation was Alaia.
Chapter 202 First Believe
What had Alaia done to provoke Gianna?
For the first time, Levi chose to believe Gianna.
He suppressed his anger and asked, “Where is Alaia? Where is she right now?”
Jason said, “Ms. Rivera has been returned to Rivera Manor by Mrs. Sienna Rivera. She should be at home right now.”
“Go home.” Levi left those words hanging and rushed back to Rivera Manor.
At this moment, Rivera Manor was brightly lit.
In the hall, Alaia was crying in Sienna’s arms, and her sobs echoed through the massive villa.
Maya sat at the center of the table, her face cold, not saying a word.
Alaia’s actions were utterly vulgar and tarnished the Rivera family’s reputation. There was no trace of a young lady from the Rivera family in her behavior.
After this incident, Alaia utterly disgraced the Rivera family, and Maya couldn’t help but ponder how they would maintain their reputation in upper society.
