The Villainess Will Leave Without Any Regrets - Chapter 13
He was the first friend Abella had, and who was on her side.
The other was Carlo and her father, who was unconditionally on Abella’s side.
Arsene was the only meaning in the world to Abella.
Did Abella mean the same thing to Arsene?
Today, seeing Arsene’s appearance was heartbreaking.
Abella sighed and rubbed her cheek with a trembling hand.
And when Abella managed to pull herself together, Enoch came to find her.
“Ha-ah. I guess the customer has already gone.”
“Was he a private guest?”
“A public guest.”
“Are you sure a public guest? Your face looked like someone got a broken heart.”
Enoch asked, rolling a lollipop in his mouth.
He sat in the seat where Arsene had been sitting and flipped through the files Abella was looking at.
He was pretending to be relaxed, but Enoch’s eyes were as sharp as they could be. Waiting breathlessly for Abella’s answer.
“That can’t be true.”
Enoch smiled sharply. Abella couldn’t hide her feelings. Enoch lifted the topmost document and asked.
“I think this is your public business, and what was your private business?”
‘What should I say about this lingering regret?’
Moreover, it was a remnant of emotions that were not left to Arsene, but only to Abella.
The remnants of emotions that had been left unattended.
“A friend from an unforgettable past.”
Enoch glanced at Abella with a crooked look.
‘Why would you say it’s friendship with such a sore expression?’
It was obviously not.
Enoch clicked his tongue and handed over the papers to Abella. Of course, it was done intentionally to divert the words.
“I think we should make our own financial institutions a priority. This was a business that would be the cornerstone of Amerigo’s financial industry, promoted by Carlo.”
“I just figured it out.”
Abella laughed bitterly.
It would have been better if she had figured it out before Arsene came.
They could have had a more gentle and informative conversation.
The business Carlo was trying to pursue was a new financial industry. Amerigo was a family that accumulated wealth through mines. However, thanks to the rats called relatives who ate the wealth accumulated from generation to generation, Amerigo had to start a new business.
Carlo was trying to start a new form of finance with his remaining wealth.
The plan was to invest money in business and get the profits back.
It would begin with the new hotel from the Sirius family.
But, there was a problem.
“You know, Abella. Now, once your relatives have been forgiven of all the debts they owed in Amerigo, there will be no amount to invest.”
Abella recited in a sorrowful voice.
Carlo’s idea was good.
A wind of change began to blow in Timur as well, and noble families were jumping into business one by one. They would need money.
But from the beginning, it was blocked like this.
The first thing Abella had to do wasn’t to do anything else but to discredit her relatives.
There was a reason for the relatives who rushed in with their eyes lit. It was in order not to be exposed for their corruption.
Additionally, if Abella became the owner of Amerigo, it was natural that she would take away the assets of Amerigo, which Carlo had been managing since he was sick.
It wasn’t long before Abella figured out what they were doing.
On the way to Timur, whenever Abella couldn’t sleep, she would examine the current circumstance from the documents, and when she entered the country, she found out the exact amount of money they had stolen and the details about their personal lives.
They had long lost all of their assets, and now they were craving Amerigo’s fortune.
“First of all, I should stop them from spending any money in the name of Amerigo.”
“I’ll do what I can.”
Enoch was a competent lawyer, and it was easy to prevent Amerigo’s future bill from being issued. Enoch laughed as he rolled the lollipop in his mouth.
“What are you going to do with the debt that is already in front of Amerigo?”
It’s dangerous to start a new business while in debt. However, if the deal with the great noble Sirius family was ruined, the Amerigo’s will never be able to dream of financial business again.
