Melanie suddenly felt ashamed.
It was the first time she wanted to run away, but her legs were rooted to the ground. She could not
move at all.
She wanted to say something but had no idea what to say. All she could do was stare blankly at Eugene.
Eugene noticed her gaze. He looked down and asked coldly, “Is this a new tactic?”
George suddenly turned around when he heard Eugene’s voice. He did not hide the vicious look on his face as he headed straight for Eugene. He did not even look at Melanie. “It’s fair that you pay what you owe. I can’t believe that you’re the owner of a company when you owe money. Pay up right now!”
Eugene’s expression was cold. He looked at the ugly words on the wooden board with disgust. “Is this a new way of courting death, George Chapman?”
George looked like he was out for blood. He straightened up his neck. “Come see this, everyone! A rich man throwing his weight around but refuses to pay what he owes. What logic is this?!”
Eugene’s eyes narrowed. “Refuse to pay what I owe?”
George smiled savagely. That was when he turned to look at Melanie. He grabbed her arm and dragged her in front of Eugene. “My daughter! Even though she’s not my real daughter, she’s my wife’s daughter!
“You slept with her for so many years but refused to pay a single cent. Are you still a man?!
“Let’s have a deal about this. I won’t ask for much. It’ll be ten grand every time. You must have slept with her at least a hundred times. Give me a million and we’ll call it even!”
George was very loud when he said this, and the entire mini square turned silent at his words.
Melanie lost all reason. The way George talked about it was like she was being prostituted.
Ten grand every time.
Eugene slept with her a hundred times, which meant it was a million.
Everything turned silent around her. Pitiful and taunting looks were thrown at her from the crowd.
Melanie’s chest heaved heavily, and she could taste blood in her mouth. The corner of her lips hurt so much that she could feel the nerve in her brain throb.
She had no idea where she got the strength from, but Melanie flung off George’s hand and gave him a big slap on the face!
Melanie stumbled and stared at George with reddened eyes. She could not control her emotions. ” You’re a dirtbag and an animal, George Chapman. How can someone like you still be alive in this world? Why don’t you just die?!”
Her eyes were red, and her sight slowly became blurred.
This was just too disgusting.
All of this was supposed to have nothing to do with her, but she felt intense disgust.
She wanted to chop off where he touched her with a knife.
However, men like him were shameless. No matter how hard she tried, she could not get rid of him.
Melanie was in deep despair. Why did all this have to happen to her?!
Why did she have to be associated with a dirtbag like him?!
She had always maintained a clear head, but the negative emotions that had piled up in the past few days because of George and Dylan had overwhelmed her.
It was only when someone dragged her away by the waist that she snapped out of it slightly.
Yana comforted her from behind. “Calm down, Melanie. It’s not worth it over someone like that.”
George seemed to just realize what happened. He could no longer keep up with his calm act as he stared ferociously at Melanie. “How dare you hit me, you bitch!”
He had just yelled this when LeapCo’s security guards pulled him away.
