“Miss Mayo, how did you obtain the international script? Some people claim that you slept around to achieve success. What is your response to these allegations?” The reporters asked more audacious questions.
Noticing that she was unaccompanied by bodyguards or anyone else, they asked whatever questions came to mind. As long as Harmony provided a response, they could crat a story and profit from the attention.
To their dismay, three black SUVs suddenly approached like a gust of wind out of nowhere, and six tall bodyguards emerged from the vehicles, forming a barrier between the reporters and Harmony.
A tall and handsome figure stepped forward, taking Harmony’s hand and glaring coldly at the media personnel. “Let’s go!”
Harmony immediately felt a strong sense of security and departed with Ezekiel. The media quickly snapped a few photos until they were out of sight.
“Who was that man just now? He doesn’t seem to be one of our local scions.”
“We have been investigating for so long and still cannot ascertain his identity. It’s quite mysterious.”
At this moment, as Harmony was being escorted into the car by Ezekiel, he inquired, “Did any of them touch you?”
Harmony shook her head. “No, they were just bothersome.”
“Is it because of the negative rumors circulating online?” Ezekiel suddenly asked. Harmony widened her beautiful eyes. “You… How did you know? Did you see it?”
Ezekiel nodded. “I read everything, and I will ensure that those who defame you face the consequences.”
Harmony nervously grasped his hand. “You don’t believe it, do you? Ezekiel, I haven’t… I haven’t been taken advantage of by anyone, and I haven’t resorted to any unethical methods to get ahead… I..
Ezekiel’s gaze locked onto her, his large hand gently covering her lips, his arm pulling her into his embrace. “Shh, say no more. I believe you. I will make those who spread rumors pay. I want everyone who seeks to frame you to understand the repercussions.”
Tears welled up in Harmony’s eyes. She pursed her red lips but couldn’t prevent the tears from falling.
Ezekiel gently wiped away her tears. “There’s no need to cry over this. From now on, I won’t allow anyone to bully you.”
At this moment, six imposing bodyguards entered a private press company. Even the security guards couldn’t impede them and stood aside, trembling.
“W-Who are you?”
“Summon your boss.” One of them said in English.
“Our boss is not in.”
“If your boss doesn’t appear within a minute, we will start vandalizing your company.”
“You… Can you afford to pay for the damages if you destroy our company?” A female team leader stepped forward angrily.
Just then, a cold voice retorted, “I can afford to demolish your company a hundred times over.”
All the employees who were observing were shocked to discover that the tall, handsome man was holding the hand of the woman they had collectively smeared earlier-Harmony.
Oh my god! Why is Harmony here?
Harmony had been informed by Ezekiel in the car that this company was responsible for the smear campaign against her. She was furious at the moment.
“Please summon your person in charge. I want to confront them in person and demand an explanation for the extensive defamation I have endured online. If you fail to provide an explanation, I will see you in court.” she snarled.
At this moment, all the employees were overwhelmed with guilt. They had merely followed orders from above and written numerous articles to defame Harmony that day. They never expected that the person they targeted would show up with six towering bodyguards.
At this point, the manager hiding in the office had no choice but to appear. He immediately approached and apologized in a low voice. “Miss Mayo, I am so sorry. It was our inexperienced staff who acted without thinking and offended you. We will promptly remove all content related to you immediately.”
Harmony sneered. “Don’t think you can use your interns as scapegoats. I want to know who bribed you to defame me. If you reveal the mastermind behind this, I might consider showing leniency.”
