Chapter 27: Fabricating Truths

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios

“Really? How did that happen?”

“We just signed the contract with them this morning. How can there be a breach of contract this afternoon? We haven’t done anything yet!”

“Yeah, the Stardust Corporation isn’t playing a trick on us, right?”

“Did they deliberately set us up? But why are they targeting us?”

“They’re really shameless. I thought that the Stardust Corporation was a huge enterprise that wouldn’t resort to such tricks!”

Everyone was babbling continuously in indignation.

They thought that it was a godsend opportunity that fell into their laps, but it turned out to be harmful to them. How could they tolerate it?!

Dominic smacked the table and roared, “Enough! I asked you to come here to discuss some strategies and countermeasures, not to listen to your nonsense. Hurry up and think of some solutions. If you don’t have any, shut up!”

The people in the conference room immediately fell silent.

“So, do all of you have nothing to say? Have I been feeding a bunch of garbage?” Seeing that no one was saying anything, Dominic got even more infuriated.

“Um, did we offend someone at the Stardust Corporation? That’s not right either. If we really offended them, Mr. Davis wouldn’t have made it a point to come over to sign the contract with us this morning. In other words, did someone offend the Stardust Corporation after signing the contract?” someone asked carefully.

His conjecture was likely to be true.

Dominic glanced at them coldly. “So, did any of you do something to offend anyone today?”

All the people present felt a cold chill down their spines when they saw Dominic’s gaze and hurriedly shook their heads.

One of the Carters discovered that Cheyenne, who usually acted as cannon fodder when Dominic was furious, wasn’t here and immediately felt dismayed. He started whispering.

“What are you talking about?” Dominic glared daggers at him.

Taken aback, he hurriedly said, “No, I’m just wondering why Cheyenne Carter isn’t here yet. She’s always missing when there’s trouble.”

Cheyenne Carter?

Yes! This must have something to do with her!

Everyone suddenly thought of something, as if they had received a reminder.

“This matter must have something to do with Cheyenne Carter! Mr. Davis of the Stardust Corporation said that he offered the contract to us because of her sincerity. However, in the blink of an eye, he said that we breached the contract and wants us to compensate. Cheyenne Carter should be the one to resolve this matter!”

“Yes! She was the one who clinched the contract, so she should be the one to solve the problem!” Please visit 𝗳𝘳ℯ𝑒𝓌ℯ𝚋𝐧oνe𝘭. c𝐨m

“Besides, everyone is here for the emergency meeting except her. Is it because she’s deliberately avoiding us? Or is it because she’s done something that goes against her conscience?”

The more the Carters talked, the more excited they got, and there were more and more conjectures.

Bryce smacked his hand on the table and exclaimed, “Ah, I know!”

With a look of excitement, he said to Dominic, “Grandpa, I know! Today, Mr. Davis said that he signed the contract with us only because of Cheyenne’s sincerity. I think he must have taken a fancy to her!

“Previously, you said that whoever can clinch the contract with the Stardust Corporation will take over the Brilliance Corporation. Everyone knows that Cheyenne is bent on taking away the Brilliance Corporation, so she must have tried to clinch the contract by resorting to all means. So...

“So, she must have gone and made some kind of deal with Mr. Davis!”

The more Bryce spoke, the more certain he was of his guess, as if these were not just his wild guesses but truths.

“No matter what, Cheyenne is still the most beautiful woman in Orange County. That’s probably why Mr. Davis decided to sign the contract with us. However, he went back on his word and changed his mind after seeing that you didn’t hand the Brilliance Corporation to her! Mr. Davis must be infuriated. That’s why he suddenly sued us for breach of contract!”

The Carters came to a sudden realization.

Yes, that must be the truth! It’s all Cheyenne Carter’s fault!

“Get Cheyenne Carter to come to the office to see me immediately!” Dominic ordered with a hostile expression.


After leaving the office today, Cheyenne went straight home, where she cooped herself up in her room and refused to see anyone. Her phone was on silent mode too.

Karen kept probing, but Cheyenne refused to say a single word.

The events that occurred today and, in particular, Dominic and the other Carters’ attitudes toward her made her feel disappointed.

At this moment, Karen’s phone rang. Seeing that it was a call from Bryce, she immediately picked up.

“Hello, Bryce. Yes, she’s in. You need to talk to her about something urgent? Okay, I’ll get her to go to the office immediately.”

After hanging up, Karen immediately pounded hard on the door of Cheyenne’s room. “Cheyenne, hurry up and come out. Your grandfather wants you to go to the office for something urgent!”

Cheyenne didn’t really want to go. but thinking that perhaps there was something important that she had to deal with at the office, she forced herself to get up.

Soon, Cheyenne arrived at the conference room of the Brilliance Corporation and was greeted by a bunch of people staring at her with furious and peculiar gazes.

Cheyenne’s heart dropped. What’s going on? Does it have something to do with me too?

“Cheyenne, I didn’t expect you to be so shameless. Since you’ve hooked up with Mr. Davis to get the contract signed, why did you go back on your word and cause us to be sued by the Stardust Corporation for breach of contract?” Bryce was the first to stand up, and he immediately lashed out at Cheyenne.

Cheyenne was instantly stunned!
