Chapter 2752 Lucinda Has Gone Abroad
“Wait… Nancy, we can’t head that way! There are reporters there!” At present, Joan had to remain vigilant to people tailing her and reporters furtively snapping photos of her.
In the end, the two of them went to Nancy’s house.
After all, Jory’s house was relatively safe. As he was one of the overbearing presidents in the city, reporters naturally didn’t dare incite his wrath.
“Alright, alright, don’t worry anymore,” Nancy consoled as she removed her jacket.
Sitting on the sofa, Joan inhaled deeply. Then, she took a sip of tea as she tried to suppress the brewing emotions within her.
“What’s your plan, Joan?”
“What plan can I have? I’ll just take things one day at a time.” I’ve got to get to the bottom of this matter first! My identity is no longer the same now, so I must redeem my reputation!
“What’s wrong?” Jory inquired softly when he saw them in the house.
“Nothing,” Nancy replied impatiently, waving a dismissive hand at him.
“Are you worried because of those rumors in the newspapers?” Jory continued asking in concern.
At that, Joan’s head instantly snapped up. She stared at the man in front of her seriously, surprised that he was actually keeping abreast of her news. Well, well… It seems that this matter is truly spreading like wildfire. Am I now notorious in this city, then?
“I’ve seen that woman,” Jory remarked. His voice was calm, but his words had both women descending into a frenzy.
In an instant, Nancy turned serious. Clutching his arm tightly, she frantically cried out, “Well? Spit it out! Where did you see her, and where is she now?”
“Calm down, Nancy. I just came back yesterday, and I bumped into her at the airport.”
Oh God, it turns out that the woman has gone abroad! At that very moment, Joan’s eyes flooded with misery. She didn’t know what to do next, and the thought of giving up flashed across her mind.
“Joan!” All of a sudden, Nancy clapped her on the shoulder hard. “Don’t worry, for we’ll definitely sniff her out no matter where she goes!”
But… Joan wavered. Going to such lengths seems rather unnecessary.
“You can’t give up, Joan!” Nancy exclaimed urgently.
“Nancy, she has already gone abroad, so why don’t we just let it go…” Joan commented hesitantly.
While Nancy’s determined stance was beyond Joan’s expectations, she could understand her sentiments. Nancy was an incredibly loyal friend, so she always stood up for her in the past whenever someone picked on her.
“What are you planning to do, then?” Joan asked skeptically as she blinked at her.
“Find her!” Nancy’s gaze was as resolute as ever.
But just how exactly are we going to do that? Desolation was written all over Joan’s face. If Lucinda Xenos were still in the country, I’ll definitely track her down and question her no matter what. But she’s now abroad, so it’s exceedingly difficult to locate her, not to mention setting things straight!
“Don’t worry, Joan. I’ve got nothing to do anyway, so I’ll handle this matter!” Nancy patted her shoulder lightly as she spoke in a menacing tone. I’ll definitely find you, Lucinda Xenos! You’ll die a horrible death for having done such a vile thing to my best friend!
As a ruthless aura radiated off Nancy, her hands clenched into fists.
At the sight of her staunch expression, Joan zipped her mouth. Ah, never mind. I’ll just let her do as she pleases. It’s best if she can find her, but if otherwise, it doesn’t really matter anyway.
Subsequently, they chatted for a while before Joan left. Nancy, on the other hand, started planning her move.
After leaving Jory’s villa, Joan didn’t return home or head back to the flower shop. Instead, she went straight back to her rented place. To her surprise, Dustin was waiting for her in front of her door.
“Dustin? Why are you here?” She eyed the man in front of her suspiciously.
