Chapter 379: Out-of-court Settlement
Hunt had seen Xenia before. Xenia knew what had happened to Hunt's father, but she deliberately
concealed it. She even deliberately gave the police false clues and made the police work in vain. When
Rorey saw that Hunt was clearly angry, a cunning light flashed in her eyes quickly. She bent down
towards him and said, "I'm so sorry. I don't think it would matter what I said now, but I hope you will
allow me to see your father”
Were it not for someone sent his father to the hospital, his father would have died a long time ago.
Therefore, Hunt thought that Rorey was hypocritical to apologize and want to visit his father.
“I won't let you see my father” Hunt coldly glanced at her, and then walked past her into the ward and
closed the door.
Rorey's face darkened as she was kept out. She stared at the door with a sinister expression, as if she
was about to burn it.
Her purpose in coming here was very simple. She wanted to reach an out-of-court settlement with
Butler Zhao and ask him not to help Rosiley testify against her mother.
However, she did not expect Hunt's reaction to be so big that he actually refused to let her go in to see
Butler Zhao. In this way, her goal would not be achieved.
No, she had to think of a way.
She caught a glimpse of the nurse walking towards her. Her eyes narrowed, and she had an idea. She
strode towards the nurse.
As soon as Hunt entered the ward, he told his father that Xenia's daughter was at the door and she
wanted to come in to see him.
Butler Zhao was agitated. He grabbed onto his son's arm and said, "Hunt, hurry up and drive her away.
I don't want to see her!"
Hunt was afraid that his father's condition would get worse because of agitation. He comforted his
father, “Dad, don't worry. I've already let her leave. I told her very clearly that you don't want to see her"
Hearing this, Butler Zhao heaved a sigh of relief, "That's good. That's good”
"Dad, should we tell Ms. Rosiley about this?" Hunt asked.
Butler Zhao shook his head, "No need, I'm afraid Miss will be worried:
Hunt nodded, "That's right. This is just a small matter. We can solve it ourselves, so we don't have to
At this moment, the door to the ward was pushed open from outside.
Hunt turned around and saw a nurse walk in. The nurse smiled and said to him, "Mr. Hunt, please
come and get some medicine for your father. The doctor just prescribed it"
"Medicine?" Hunt frowned suspiciously, "Why did the doctor prescribe medicine for my father?"
The nurse explained, "You father complained that he had indigestion after eating and his stomach was
upset, didn't he? So the doctor prescribed some digestive drugs"
"OK" His father did have such a problem, so Hunt had no doubt and followed the nurse out of the ward.
After he left with the nurse, the door to the ward next door opened and Rorey walked out. She looked
at Hunt following behind the nurse and walked over to push open Butler Zhao's door.
"Hunt, you're back so soon.’ Hearing the sound of the door opening, Butler Zhao thought that his son
had returned with the medicine. But when he looked up and saw that it was Rorey, he goggled his eyes
“Butler Zhao, long time no see.” Rorey walked towards him with a smile on her face.
Butler Zhao reacted and asked sternly, "What are you doing here? I don't welcome you here!"
Seeing that he was furious and glaring at her with a face full of indignation, Rorey's smile became
brighter. She said calmly, “I come to see you, Butler Zhao.
Furthermore, I am your guest, as well as the eldest young miss of the Tang Family. I'm afraid your
attitude towards me is wrong
"My guest? The eldest young miss of the Tang Family?” Butler Zhao sneered and said righteously,
"There is only one Miss of the Tang Family from the beginning to
the end, and that is Miss Rosiley?
Rorey's smile became wooden, but she quickly recovered. She quickly hid the displeasure in her eyes
and smiled, “Butler Zhao, I don't blame you that you don't recognize me as the Miss of the Tang Family.
I come here today just to apologize to you”
"Apologize?" Butler Zhao sneered as if he had heard a joke. His gaze turned cold and he said, "Miss
Gu, I can't bear your apology. Please go out"
Rorey did not care his bad attitude at all. She smiled, took out a piece of paper from her bag, and
walked over to put it on the bedside table.
Butler Zhao glanced at it. It was a check.
"What do you mean?" Butler Zhao's expression became even colder.
“That's what I meant. My mother pushed you downstairs because she accidentally made a mistake.
She didn't mean it. I think you know that very well. So I think it would be best if we settle out of court:
Butler Zhao stared at her and asked seriously, "Do you think I'm lying here just because your mother
accidentally made a mistake?"
Rorey raised her eyebrows and asked, "Isn't that so?"
“Of course not!" Butler Zhao replied sternly, "Your mother was afraid that I would expose your plan
about hurting Miss Rosiley, so she wanted to kill me. But you cover the fact and say that she just
accidentally made a mistake?”
Hearing this, the smile on Rorey's face instantly froze. She narrowed her eyes and said with a gloomy
expression, "Did you tell Rosiley all of this?”
Butler Zhao ignored her question and said forcefully, "You and your mother will pay the price for what
Rorey looked at him quietly and didn't say anything for a long time.
Butler Zhao's attitude was now very clear. He wanted to help Rosiley deal with them and at the same
time seek justice for himself.
As long as Butler Zhao accused her mother in front of the police, then her mother could only go to
So what's the use of her coming here today?
She remembered what Hunt said on the phone when she first arrived. She smiled and thought that
Heaven would always leave a door open!
After calm down, Rorey feigned carelessness and asked, “Butler Zhao, does your daughter-in-law treat
This sudden question appalled Butler Zhao, and then he glared at her warily, "What does this have to
do with you?"
Rorey smiled and said, "Of course it has nothing to do with me. But I know that your daughter-in-law is
not treating you well!"
Rorey just said tentatively. When Butler Zhao heard her words, a trace of sadness flashed across his
face very quickly and it was hard to be noticed.
"You're wrong. She treats me well.’ Butler Zhao replied.
“Is that so?” Rorey put on an evil smile and said, "But I just heard your son and his wife talking on the
phone. Your daughter-in-law doesn't want you to go home.She wants your son to send you to a nursing
“Nonsense!” Butler Zhao was furious.
Rorey smiled calmly, "You know well if I'm spouting nonsense”
