"Now that I have nothing to do with this, why did Dad ask?" Alice snapped sharply as she stole a glance at her father. She then started eating her breakfast.

"You must know something about the news. Otherwise, you wouldn't have gotten up early this morning. Tell me, who is behind this?" Derek urged. He had been observing his daughter. 'Alice acts weird today. She never got up early before. She must be in the loop on who published the news, ' he assumed.

"You'll know it soon, Dad," Alice answered, not intending to reveal too much at once. After a pause, she continued,"Violet is a kind girl and she has many friends. Perhaps one of them did this to bail her out."

"But this is pretty damning expose. Why would Violet's friend do this?" Derek asked, fixing his eyes on Alice.

Much as Jackson loved and doted on his daughter- Violet, Derek thought this for revenge was a little on the extreme. In fact, Jackson would object to such retaliation, if he got wind of it before it hit the press, ' Derek thought.

"I don't know. You need to ask that guy," Alice replied. Afraid that she might spill the beans, she had no intention of continuing on the topic with her shrewd father.

Amy speculated,"Wilson and Mond wouldn't do this. And although Selina is really upset, she is not capable of digging so deep into all the dirty private details that are now emerging about Cassie. Especially, Selina couldn't pull that kind of a surprise in such a short time. Who would do this?"

Amy's speculation helped Derek narrow down the targets. With a look at Alice, he asked,"Did Lawrence do this?"

Seeing how close her father was sniffing, Alice choked on her milk as a knot of apprehension shook her up. She coughed and wiped her mouth with tissue hurriedly.

"Do you think Lawrence would do that, Dad?" Alice countered, keeping her parents guessing.

Amy cut in,"It looks like no one would do this except Lawrence."

Noting his daughter remained silent, Derek made his own conclusion. He didn't blame Lawrence for acting in a rush. But it did sh

tion is right, yesterday's headlines must have been be Cassie's doing. Today, someone published these news to take revenge on her," Francis inferred. As a shrewd businessman, he was not new to such dirty tactics and mudslinging.

"Mr. Francis, you have a point. Someone must have done this to get even with Miss Cassie. So what should we do?" the assistant asked, waiting for Francis' instruction.

"Don't do anything now," Francis commanded,"I have a feeling that this is a very powerful rival. Now that he could publish such a sensational content in this conservative city, he must have influential connections high up. Besides, he must have thought of a backup plan. It would be best for us to wait and see."

"Okay," the assistant nodded. "But Miss Cassie perhaps has some problems recently. Together with this explosive dossier, she could be in a very difficult place," he added, looking worried.

He speculated that Cassie might fear going out after the news came out.

"Is Cassie in the hotel now?" Francis asked with a frown.

"No, she isn't. I called up the hotel and they told me that Miss Cassie went to work half an hour ago," the assistant replied.

"She is an idiot. Why did she go to work today? The hospital probably has been surrounded by reporters," Francis said apprehensively. He got up, grabbed his coat and rushed out of the office.
