Chapter 14 Are You in Dire Need of Money, Miss Winters?
Robert was vicious as he pulled out all the stops.
In merely two days, all of the Winters Family’s assets were frozen, including two estates and the shares belonging to Crystal’s father.
Robert was sure that Crystal couldn’t hold out much longer!
When the court came to seize their property, Anna was so worked up that she fainted, and she had to be hospitalized and given infusions. When she woke up, she was still unable to accept reality, so she went to Robert’s company to cause a ruckus.
However, Robert had changed in the blink of an eye. Anna didn’t even get to see him after causing a fuss for hours, and she was almost sent to the police station.
Crystal had to coax and cajole Anna before she could take the latter back to the hospital.
Anna lay on the hospital bed while saying worriedly, “It’s okay if we’re homeless, but we still need to fork out a huge sum of money for your father’s case. Even though Mr. Murray is an acquaintance, we still have to pay him, you know!”
Crystal comforted her gently and said, “I’ll think of something to deal with our money issues.”
Anna pitied Crystal. In the afternoon, she passed a bank book to Crystal which contained her personal savings of approximately 150,000.
Crystal knew that this was Anna’s retirement fund. She held the bank book in her hand as she choked on sobs. “I’ll use it now, but in the future—”
Anna interrupted her, saying, “I still have a small apartment on the outskirts. Even though it’s a little run down, it’s still habitable. Crystal, you have to do everything you can for your father’s lawsuit.”
Once Anna was discharged from the hospital, Crystal took her to a house she had rented temporarily.
The house was situated in an old community area. It was about 645 square feet with two rooms, and the interior was crude beyond belief. It couldn’t even compare to the high-end house they used to live in.
Anna decisively settled in.
Crystal felt extremely guilty, so she asked Madison to look around for some part-time jobs she could take on.
Madison didn’t agree to it. “You’re already working long hours, and you’ll be working yourself to death if you take on a part-time job.”
Crystal insisted, saying, “I’ll be fine.”
Madison could see that Crystal needed a lot of money, so she had no choice but to help her friend out. She even lent all of her savings to Crystal, who committed Madison’s kindness to heart.
Every day after work, Crystal would head to a restaurant for her part-time job. It was a little tiring, but she could earn about 70 bucks per hour.
She was good-looking and also skilled at playing the piano, so the manager was more than willing to hire her.
The next encounter between Henry and Crystal happened at this exact restaurant.
Henry wasn’t dining alone; he came with a very charming lady. They seemed to be colleagues, but there was a suggestive air around them.
Crystal didn’t think much of it. After all, an outstanding man like Henry never lacked his share of women.
She knew her worth; she belonged to a completely different world from Henry’s. Hence, she chose not to bother him even after spotting him. When she went to the washroom and bumped into him, she just nodded lightly and greeted, “Mr. Miller.”
Henry was smoking in the smoking area. When he caught sight of Crystal, he frowned because the woman had lost quite a lot of weight.
Her chin was sharper, and even though it looked nice, he felt that it would crack as soon as he pinched it.
Henry knew that Crystal worked at a high-end music center, and they didn’t allow their teachers to take other jobs outside.
He took his time and puffed out some smoke.
As the smoke permeated the air, he tapped the cigarette against the ashtray. “Are you in dire need of money, Miss Winters?”
Crystal was stunned. She didn’t think Henry would be willing to humble himself and talk to a nobody like her, so she paused for a moment before nodding. “Yes, I am.”
Henry immediately guessed that Robert was probably behind this.
Nonetheless, he didn’t voice out against the injustice as he simply glanced over Crystal’s body.
Even a picky man like Henry had to admit that it would be quite easy for Crystal to earn some big bucks. She was nice-looking and soft-spoken, and when she engaged in kissing and other similar activities, she behaved like a young beast.
No man would dislike that!
Instead, Henry was quite surprised that Crystal was willing to work hard and take on a part-time job.
Still, Henry respected women. He jutted his chin slightly and signaled at her.
Crystal knew that he was letting her go, so she hastily entered the washroom.
When she came out, he was already gone. Naturally, the beautiful woman who came with him had left as well.
Crystal assumed that Henry would be having a wild time tonight.
