“You mean…” the manager asked nervously. One look from Victor and Ivan immediately understood
what he meant. Ivan took out a black and gold card and tossed it to the manager. “Do you recognize this
The manager caught the card and took a closer look at it.
When the manager saw what it was, his legs grew weak. It was just a card, and yet it felt so heavy in his
Everyone knew who Victor Sullivan was. The Sullivan Group’s business operations spanned across the
entire country. It had a deep foundation and the company had been passed on for generations. Its
position in Apliaria—let alone the whole country-was unshakable. And as for Victor himself, he was the
new CEO of the Sullivan Group. He had only been in this position for two years, but he had brought the
company to unimaginable heights with no sign of slowing down.
That was why when the manager recognized him the moment he saw him, and he became very
respectful. That respect was given in deference to Victor’s title as the Sullivan Group’s CEO. But upon
seeing the card, the manager believed that respect was not nearly enough for a man of Victor’s standing
This card was unique in the world, for there was only one such card. Even if Victor wasn’t the CEO of
Sullivan Group, this card was powerful enough to make all the stuff of Crown Club listen to his command.
The manager swallowed hard, trying to suppress his agitation. He showed courtesy towards Victor by
genuflecting before him. “Boss, your wish is my command. I will do everything in my power to accomplish
your order.’ All the bodyguards were surprised by what the manager said, and then they all knelt down in
unison. “The culprit should kneel down to apologize.” A sinister look appeared in Victor’s eyes when he
smirked at Rachel. Right after he finished talking, Rachel felt a pang in her heart. She wasn’t surprised to
hear him say that, but it still made it difficult for her to breathe.
However, the grief she was feeling at the moment was not her own.
Rachel pursed her lips, and heard the deafening shout of the manager and the bodyguards.
“Have a good day, Boss!”
In the hospital.
It had been three days since Trevor were sent to the hospital and now he finally regained consciousness.
Rachel had been forced by the bodyguards to kneel beside his bed. Her knees felt so painful that they
were starting to get numb, and her eyes were half-closed.
Victor kept his words. He made her kneel at Trevor’s bedside for nearly three days. Other than several
glasses of water a day, Rachel hadn’t eaten anything for three whole days. This was also one of Victor’s
He said that she must show her sincerity by abstaining from food as long as Trevor was in a coma.
As a result, Rachel had lost all the strength to even eat anything.
Unaprel is me cuipi noulu Meet And Apologize At first, she tried to fight back, and surprisingly managed
to knock down two bodyguards using dirty tricks. But later on, when Victor found out about what she did,
he sent two boxers from the security agency to supervise her.
And since there was nothing she could do against those boxers, Rachel decided to save her strength
and lay low.
The second Trevor woke up, one of the boxers went outside to call a doctor, leaving the other one to
watch over Rachel.
A moment later, Rachel fell to the ground. Upon seeing that she had lost consciousness, the boxer tried
to help her up. But the second he touched her arm, a light flashed. Consequently, the boxer felt
something pierce his neck. Before he could check what had been lunged into his neck, something was
slammed against the back of his head.
The hulking boxer blacked out and fell, knocking over a tea table before he hit the ground. Meanwhile,
Rachel had lost the strength to hold on any longer, so she sat on the ground. She no longer had enough
strength to get up, and her knees were numb with pain.
Trevor just woke up, but he saw everything that happened, and it left him horrified.
Just now, a really strong man fell down before his very eyes. And the person who knocked him out was
Such a scene was frightening for Trevor. It suddenly reminded him of what happened in the private room
of that club.
He remembered how the empty wine bottle was smashed against his forehead.
At this moment, Trevor trembled with fear. “You…” Rachel was rubbing her knees as she looked up at
him, and said, “Mr. Guzman, you’re finally awake.” “What… what are you doing here?” Even Trevor’s
voice was trembling. Subconsciously, he looked at her hands and once again remembered the wine
bottle shattering against his head. He swallowed his own saliva and felt dizzy. Every second he looked at
Rachel made his forehead more and more painful.
Lowering her head, Rachel replied, “I’m actually here to apologize.”
Trevor was rendered speechless. ‘Is that her way of apologizing?’ God knew how frightened he was
when he opened his eyes and saw a man who was taller and much stronger than himself fall down
before his very eyes. Trevor held the sheet, looking like a frightened rabbit. Seconds later, Rachel felt
that her knees were much better. She put her hands at the end of the bed, using it to help herself stand
up. But as soon as her hands touched the iron railing of the bed, Trevor panicked. “It was my fault! I’m
sorry! I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean it! I was wrong! Please forgive me!” Trevor put his palms together and
bowed before Rachel with his eyes closed. He didn’t stop begging for forgiveness until he felt dizzy.
However, he didn’t hear anything after a long time, so he opened his eyes vigilantly.
Rachel had managed to stand up, and she was now taking out the sharp object from the boxer’s neck.
It turned out to be a straightened paperclip.
She had obtained it from the pile of documents that Andy gave her. She never imagined that it would

come in handy. Finally, Rachel stood straight, holding the clip between her fingers, and staring directly
into Trevor’s eyes. As the needle glinted in the sun, his face turned pale, and he covered his neck with
his hands. It looked like he was about to break into tears. “Wait! I’ll give you whatever you want. Just
please don’t hurt me! How about this? I’ll get on my knees and ask for forgiveness, okay?” Before he
could reach the end of his sentence, the door of the ward opened. The other boxer, along with the doctor,
came in. As soon as they got in, the boxer noticed that his colleague was lying on the ground, and Trevor
was trembling in fear. The boxer’s face turned livid. “What the hell happened in here?” he asked. Trevor
looked like he had seen a messiah and he wanted to cry out for help, but he suddenly felt a chill around
his neck before he could open his mouth. At this moment, he saw that Rachel was playing with her
paperclip, and it didn’t look like she was paying attention to the people who came in. After a moment of
hesitation, Trevor said, “Nothing happened. I’m fine.” “Then what happened to my colleague?” The boxer
pointed at his colleague on the ground. “Well, uh… He’s…” Trevor had no idea how to explain what had
happened, so he turned to Rachel for help. Consequently, she smiled and replied, “He fell by accident.”
Everyone fell silent. ‘That’s a terrible explanation! I could’ve come up with something better,’ Trevor
thought. “Who permitted you to stand? Mr. Sullivan said ” The boxer was just about to hold Rachel down
again and force her to kneel, but she managed to avoid him. The boxer was startled by how fast her
