Thank God

Nothing happened that night.

After breakfast, Hiram dropped Rachel outside the Rong's house. She took a taxi to her friend Celine's home.

So many things had happened recently, it would drive her crazy if she didn't share them with someone.

On the way to Celine's home, she kept feeling like somebody was following her, but whenever she looked back, there was no one there.

She wondered why she always had such illusions these days. Was it an after-affect of the head injury?

At Celine's home...

Celine was a good listener. Rachel told her all about the incredible things she'd suffered recently.

"Rachel, is the Rong family you're talking about the most mysterious family in H City?" Celine asked. "It's said that they never accept any interviews, and nobody knows what the big boss looks like. It seems he's settled abroad and rarely comes back.

If you're talking about them, then this is a great deal for you! Although you'll only be married for a month, you'll get great compensation after the divorce!"

Rachel leaned against the armrest of the sofa and grabbed a packet of snacks. With a mouthful of chips, she said, "That can never happen! It's been clearly indicated in the marriage agreement that I won't get even a penny from the Rong family, except a little basic compensation. He's a miser!"

"I can't believe it!" Celine cried. "After all, your marriage was arranged by your great-grandfathers when you were not even born. How could you agree to such unfair terms? You should've at least asked them to pay you a good sum of money!"

Shaking her head, Rachel said, "If you meet him, you would understand. He's too smart. He had me all figured out right from the beginning. He's kept me under his control all the time!"

An idea struck Celine. "Rachel, have you ever thought about making the marriage a reality?" she asked. "Then you can get much more money!"

"But how?" Rachel listened carefully while chewing the chips.

"Find an opportunity to slip drugs into his drinks. If he acts on an impulse — you know what I mean — then you can accuse him. Since he does the wrong thing, he must compensate you!

And don't take pills, you'd better choose the best time to conceive. If you can conceive a baby for the Rong family, then you'll become very valuable!"

Rachel continued munching on the chips. "Celine! You must have read

andy with it. "So, the swindler slept with you and stole your money?"

Rachel guessed that Mandy didn't dare to tell Nico about this. Mandy had probably called her because she was the only person she knew in H City.

"Mandy, why don't you ever learn from your mistakes? Not all men can be trusted. How many times have you been deceived?" As far as she knew, Mandy had suffered great loss at least three times already. Now she had graduated from university and she was still so easy to be fooled.

"Come on, don't blame me. The guy looked so handsome and rich, I thought I must have met my Mr. Right. How could I have foreseen that he's a swindler?" Mandy said indignantly. She held Rachel's arm and pleaded, "Promise me that you won't tell my dad!

And don't tell Aunt Fannie either, please!"

Rachel felt at a loss as she looked at Mandy. The girl always forgot the pain after the wound was healed. "Okay. I'll go out and buy you a dress now."

It was dusk when Rachel and Mandy finally left the hotel.

The light of the setting sun was reflected on the glass of the towered buildings on either side. It was an amazing scenery that could only be caught downtown.

"Mandy, where are you staying now? I'll take you there."

"I'm staying at a colleague's place. But I told her that I came out to find an apartment today."

"So?"

Rachel suddenly knew what the girl was going to say next.

"Can I stay with you for a couple of days? I, I have no money now. I'll get my salary in the next few days, then I can rent my own apartment!"

Mandy looked at Rachel pitifully.
