All of a sudden, Agnes was the talk of the room.
She was stunned too.
Everyone around was from Agnes‘ Journalism Society. They were all looking back and forth between her and Jenny with curiosity.
What the heck was happening?
Jenny was marching over to Agnes, looking pretty peeved. She’d even forgotten her usual grace. Pointing at Agnes, Jenny blurted out, “Agnes, why are you framing me? How could you be so ruthless? You created this audio to set me up; wasn’t it enough for you to ruin my child with Elton?”
Jenny’s words were loaded, and a crowd began to gather.
Agnes felt a touch dizzy, but she kept her cool and responded, “I didn’t fake the audio. You know in your heart if I’m framing you.”
Elton had also slowly made his way over.
His icy stare sent a chill down the spine, and Jenny realized that Elton was starting to doubt her.
She quickly responded, “Elton, you have to believe me. I was really pregnant with your child. You know Agnes hates me; she hates that I took you from her. That’s why she killed our baby and is now framing me. Elton, you must believe me.”
Elton didn’t respond to Jenny but asked Agnes, “Did you do this?”
Agnes felt a coldness in her chest. Was Elton suspecting her too?
Yes, Elton had believed before that Jenny’s child was killed by her.
“It wasn’t her, it was me,” a calm and deep voice said from behind the crowd.
Though cold, the voice carried an innate dignity.
It was Jared from the Whitfield family!
Hancock Taylor and Sarah hurried over.
Jared approached Hancock Taylor and said, “I was the one who released this audio, but the content is real. Although the Taylor family and the Whitfield family aren’t close, I respect you as an elder, I couldn’t just sit back and watch a scheming girl play around with the Taylor family. I played this recording in public just for Elton to see her true colors. I hope you won’t blame me.”
What was supposed to be the Taylor family engagement party turned into a spectacle because of this video. The Taylor family had been humiliated. But if this were true, they should be thanking Jared.
Jenny didn’t expect Jared to step in at this moment.
Jenny blurted, “He and Agnes are in cahoots. Agnes is kept by Jared. They are out to get me.”
Jared replied coolly, “Jenny, I reserve my right to sue you for defamation. But I, Jared, would never wrong a good person and would never let a bad person go.”
Jared picked up his phone and made a call, saying only two words: “Come in.”
Then a man walked in through the door.
He was Patrick, the well–known yet controversial head gynecologist at Hope Hospital, he was known by many.
Patrick came over and said, “Jenny, I’m truly sorry. As a doctor, I can’t go against my conscience to help you falsify pregnancy and miscarriage documents. I’ve been restless these days. I’ve confessed my actions to my superiors and resigned from my job. Now, the only thing I can do is reveal the truth to make up for my guilt. I also want to advise you: You’re still young, you should start over.”
Jenny shook her head, pointing at the crowd, and said, “They teamed up to frame me.”
