The reality of Violet's words left him in deep thoughts. Born of the aristocracy, he had often appeared in media interviews. He was used to cameras and being in the limelight. But this was no dalliance with the fourth estate, as media houses were dragging his name in the mud. Deep inside he knew he couldn't merely downplay the effect of those negative reports on public opinion. When he read the sleazy headlines and subsequent comments, he found it depressing.

In the Lu family's villa, Alice sat at the desk staring at the laptop screen. The more reviews she read, the angrier she got. She wished she could make those netizens silent. 'What gives them the right to keep poking their noses into other people's businesses?' she wondered, her anger rising.

Alice's cell phone rang, interrupting her attention as she reached out and looked at the screen. When she saw the caller ID, her eyes popped in surprise. "Lawrence!" she exclaimed before picking the call.

"Hi, Lawrence," she greeted, her moods lighting up a little.

"Are you not in bed?" From the other end of the line, Lawrence's voice had a hint of restraint and odd tenderness.

"Yes," Alice replied with a thoughtful look. "Have you learnt about the news on Greg, Lawrence?" she asked cautiously.

She knew Lawrence very well. 'I have to be cautious with him. Even though he and I are on close terms, he's a rather volatile man who'll snap at the slightest provocation, ' she reasoned.

"Of course I have," Lawrence blurted Greg's full name coldly. "Has he really done what they said he had done?" he asked, his tone giving away his disquiet.

When Alice heard this, her hand quivered slightly. After composing herself, she answered hurriedly,"Greg would never do that, Lawrence. He didn't cheat on Violet as the media would have you believe. You can't blame Greg, because I was with them at the hotel last night. This whole racket has Cassie's handwriting at every turn. She has been bugging Greg since they were abroad. Now that she's back in the country an

, Derek fixed his doubtful eyes on his daughter beside him. "Who did this?" he asked, cynicism echoing in words.

"What are you talking about?" Alice answered, pretending not to know what her father was talking about. In fact, she knew it was Lawrence's doing. But she was ignorant of the content of the reports. All she knew was that there would be an important twist to the media reports that had been doing rounds, dragging Greg and Violet's names into the mud.

Alice took the newspaper from her father's hand, and read it intently. A few lines on, she burst into laughter. "Oh my god. This must be the most explosive news across the city in years. Those 'beautiful' pictures were published?" she gasped.

"Tell me, who is behind all these?" Derek asked sternly. Since he read the news about Greg yesterday, he had mulled it over, trying to find a solution. However, someone had beaten him to the punch. He contemplated that the person behind this must be a big shot. Otherwise, he wouldn't be able to publish without inviting some level of censure by the government.

"You think I did this, Dad?" Alice asked in a naughty voice.

After reading the newspaper, Amy understood what the father and daughter were talking about. She replied firmly,"It's impossible. You only came back a few days. I don't think you're capable of pulling such a move."
