Liam’s face turned serious, “Kaylee, you better tell the truth, where did she go?”
Kaylee was a little flustered by his gaze and said in a suppressed voice, “How am I not telling the truth? She just went to the bathroom, you can check the surveillance if you don’t believe me, why would I lie about this?”
“How did I tell you before we came?” Liam reminded her.
Kaylee was unconvinced, “I did bring her in as you said, but she’s an adult, how can I stop her if she wants to leave? Maybe she’s holding a grudge against me for taking her clothes, and she deliberately ran away to embarrass you.”
Liam said irritably, “She’s not as narrow-minded as you are!”
Kaylee was angry. “Have you been brainwashed by that woman? You don’t trust your own sister, but you trust an outsider?”
Liam gave her a cold look, and Kaylee shivered. She wanted to say something else to defend herself, but Liam had already left her behind
She let out a sigh of relief and tried to figure this out.
She had just sent her friend to check outside, and the bathroom door was already open. Celeste should have come out.
But she didn’t come to the venue or call her brother to complain, which was a bit strange.
“Ladies, guess what I just heard outside?”
Just after returning to her seat, a socialite she was chatting with came over, her face full of surprise and whispering in a low voice.
Everyone was curious, “What is it? Just tell us.”
“I heard that the Garcia family’s daughter just had an attack in the bathroom and almost died.”
Kaylee froze in her tracks.
Someone asked, “Which Garcia family?”
“How many Garcia families are there in J City? Fusion Dynamics’ Garcia family, Kaylee should be familiar with them, I heard my dad say, the Garcia family seems to have a good relationship with your family.
In fact, they weren’t that familiar. The Garcia family had some connections with the Reed family, but after her father’s death, the
relationship obviously diminished, and later they heard that their youngest daughter, Clair Garcia, was in poor health, so the family went abroad to seek treatment, and the contact became even less.
In J City, besides the Fletcher family, the only family that could rival the Reed family’s strength was the Garcia family.
Kaylee, of course, wouldn’t deny being familiar with the Garcia family. She elegantly took a sip of her wine and said casually. “Our families go way back. What happened to Clair, you said?”
“Ms. Garcia suddenly had an attack in the restroom, seemed like asthma. Unfortunately, some irresponsible person blocked the door. Ms. Garcia nearly died in there. Luckily, there was someone else in the restroom who climbed out the window to get help, and that’s how Ms. Garcia was saved. The hotel is keeping it hush-hush. I heard this from a distant relative who’s in charge of security here.”
Kaylee’s hand trembled slightly
How could Clair be in the restroom? She didn’t hear any noise from there…
“The twelfth floor? Climbing out the window? Just imagining it makes my legs wobbly. That woman has some serious guts. Why didn’t she just call for help instead of risking it through the window?”
“I don’t know the specifics, just that she was also here for the party tonight.”
“Clair is the Garcia family’s darling. They’ll definitely be super grateful to the person who saved her. Why don’t things like this ever happen to me?”
“Even if it did, you’d probably be too scared to run away”
“You’re talking nonsense!”
Everyone burst into laughter.
But Kaylee felt a little uneasy and even a bit panicky, planning to leave.
Causing a little trouble for Celeste was one thing, but now she had put someone’s life in danger. If this got to Liar’s ears, Kaylee knew her brother’s personality he wouldn’t let her off the
