Iris directed her sharp gaze right at Lily’s eyes, and that- along with her ever – dignified imposingness -left Lily feeling heavily pressured.
Lily opened her mouth to answer and insisted on
repeating her previous answer. However, Iris’s gaze was so sharp that it made Lily feel guilty to continue the rest of her answer.
Joseph’s heart skipped a beat and he had a vague bad
feeling. Leon already admitted that there was nothing more to say, which made it all the more confusing as to why Iris continued to ask that question.
“Miss Young, Leon has already admitted that he—” Joseph hurriedly interrupted.
“Shut up! I’m asking Miss Cameron. Not you!” Iris lambasted.
Joseph trembled uncontrollably and did not dare to talk any more.
“You need to be able to live with your conscience, Miss Cameron! Now touch your heart and tell me the truth!”
Iris looked at Lily coldly and her domineeringly cold aura was even more oppressive.
Lily touched her heart with one hand. She was already very guilty to begin with, so as soon as she felt the beating of her heart through the palm of her hand, her fragile mental fortitude collapsed in an instant!
“I’m sorry, Miss Young. I lied… It was Mister Conrad who abused his power to bully me, and Mister Wolf was the one who saved me. The only reason I helped Mister Conrad accuse Mister Wolf was because I was afraid of losing my job…”
Lily knelt in front of Iris with a thud. Tears soon began gushing out like a broken dam and she almost lost her breath in between sobs. It was truly a sad and pitiful sight.
“So, you two worked together to falsely accuse Leon!”
Ariel was dumbfounded. She believed Joseph’s lies and even thought that Leon was the bad guy here.
Reality gave Ariel a tight slap on her face though, because that old man was actually stringing her along the entire time! She was a little peeved as a result because that
whole incident simply reinforced everyone’s idea of her as a bimbo.
