The official statement from Foreverie Jewelry was as follows: “In light of the fact that the organizers of the Starlight Jewelry Competition have failed to ascertain the truth behind the plagiarism incident and have blacklisted designer Violet from the competition, Foreverie Jewelry hereby announces that, starting today, designers who have participated in the Starlight Jewelry Competition will no longer be eligible to enter the Century Jewelry Competition and will have their eligibility to join Foreverie Jewelry revoked.”
As soon as Foreverie Jewelry posted this statement, the official Century Jewelry Competition account immediately retweeted it. Violet stared at her Twitter feed in shock. Her voice trembled a bit. “Is this the official statement from Foreverie Jewelry?”
Megan, cool as ever, replied, “They’re helping you.”
Violet nodded repeatedly. “Of course, I know. To enter the World Jewelry Competition, you must win the Century Jewelry Competition, and Foreverie Jewelry is the dream company of countless jewelry designers. This statement from Foreverie Jewelry is like cutting off the path for the Starlight Jewelry Competition. This competition might not be able to continue in the future. Clearly, they want to bring down the organizers of the Starlight Jewelry Competition.”
Megan gave her a sidelong glance. “I didn’t expect you to actually see through this.”
Violet chuckled dryly. While she appeared calm, she was actually quite shocked. She had not expected Patrick, who was clearly angry with her, to help her retaliate against the organizers of the Starlight Jewelry Competition like this.
Starlight Jewelry Competition had been trying to please Veronica, a rising star in the jewelry world. They had previously announced that they would blacklist Violet permanently. Unexpectedly, the plagiarism incident involving Violet took a shocking turn of events. Shortly thereafter, Foreverie Jewelry issued a statement, leaving the organizers of the Starlight Jewelry Competition in a tight spot.
Violet found it incredibly satisfying.
She had not realized that despite Patrick’s tough exterior, he had a soft side. Now she understood that he was a man who said one thing but
Violet kept giggling at her computer. Megan playfully nudged her head. “What are you laughing at? It’s not over yet. Keep reading.”
Violet quickly shook her head, her eyes sparkling as she looked at Megan. “Reading what?”
Megan grabbed the mouse and moved it, catching Violet’s attention. Violet saw a trending topic.
The trending title was “Foreverie Jewelry Releases Three Statements.” She clicked on it and saw screenshots shared by netizens. The first statement was the counterattack against the Starlight Jewelry Competition organizers. The second one announced Violet’s future with Foreverie Jewelry, stating that Foreverie Jewelry would cover the breach of contract fee for Violet leaving Oceanen Jewelry. The third one mentioned helping Violet in a lawsuit against Veronica for copyright infringement over the past two years.
Seeing the content, Violet’s emotions surged. She knew that without Patrick’s approval, these things would never have happened.
Violet’s emotions were complex at this moment. She had initially just wanted to use Patrick’s capabilities to break free from her father’s control. She had not expected that Patrick would be openly and secretly assisting her, making her revenge plan even more perfect.
Out of the blue, Megan asked, “Why is Foreverie Jewelry suddenly helping you?”
Violet hesitated, looked at Megan, and finally chose to reveal everything. Megan squinted her eyes. “What was his purpose in marrying you?”
Violet felt a bit puzzled, not sure how to respond to Megan’s question. She thought for a moment and stammered, “Well, I guess he didn’t find me repulsive in appearance. And he was upset about being stood up, so he just took me to get married, maybe?”
Megan slowly shook her head. “No, I think he might have fallen for you at first sight. Otherwise, if you were just a random woman he married on a whim, why would he help you like this?”
Violet was taken aback. “No way, and I don’t believe in love at first sight. All love at first sight is just shallow attraction based on looks.”
Megan glanced at her calmly. “Whether it’s love at first sight or shallow attraction, the point is he’s interested in you.”
Megan’s words left Violet feeling a bit confused. She did not know if that
In the afternoon, right after parting ways with Megan, Violet received a call from Patrick. “Nelson will come later to help you move. Get your things ready.”
Nelson Massy was Patrick’s assistant.
Violet was surprised. “Move where?”
Patrick’s tone carried a hint of sarcasm. “Don’t tell me you want to keep living in hotels.”
Violet immediately shook her head. “No, I don’t.”
Patrick gave a light grunt. “Then do as I say.”
After Patrick hung up, Nelson called shortly after. However, Violet heard from Nelson that he was still at Foreverie Jewelry, so she opted to head home by herself.
When she arrived home, there was no one around. Violet went upstairs to pack her things.
Just as she finished and came downstairs, she saw her father, Henry Webb, walking in, staring at her with a heavy expression. Her
stepmother, Elaine, and Veronica stood behind him.
Henry spoke up, “What are you planning to do?”
