All Her Secrets Chapter 877 by Chestnut

Chapter 877 I Have a Way

“According to reliable sources, the Duncan Corporation is about to face a huge financial crisis because of the leakage of its core information…”

Audrey, who had never cared much about the financial world, would not have watched a financial program if it wasn’t for the fact that this news station had predicted in advance that it was going to report a big secret about the Duncan Corporation.

A huge financial crisis?

Hearing this news, Audrey’s brows instantly furrowed.

Although the Duncan Corporation had nothing to do with her, Branden was now dating Catherine after all. If something happened to Branden, Catherine would be sad. Catherine was her sister, and she naturally didn’t want anything bad to happen to the Duncan Corporation.

Although the company behind this news media was a foreign company, the company was very powerful and their news had always been reliable.

Daring to report the news like this without worrying about the Duncan Corporation sending a lawyer’s letter meant that they must have gotten hold of some clues. It was highly likely that this matter was true.

Audrey’s heart suddenly tightened, and she didn’t even notice Brian walking to her and sitting down.

Seeing Audrey’s restless expression, Brian directly reached out and hugged her. The sudden hug startled Audrey. She jumped up with a startled look.

Her reaction made Brian very dissatisfied. He looked at Audrey with furrowed brows and a grim face. ” Audrey, what are you thinking about? It can’t be that you are thinking about

your ex, right? Why are you so scared

when I touch you?”

Audrey was heartily disgusted with Brian, and when she heard him say that, she found him even more unreasonable.

She gave him a disdainful glance and said bluntly, “What are you talking about? There is no such thing. I was just thinking about something. Don’t you know how scary it is for you to suddenly come and hug me?”

“You were thinking about something? What kind of things can you think about when you watch a financial news program?” Brian’s words were full of questioning. Obviously, he didn’t believe Audrey’s words.

However, his appearance made Audrey react. She was wondering who could answer her questions, and Brian came. She could just ask Brian. “Brian, let me ask you something.”

Seeing the rare seriousness in her expression, Brian found it somewhat interesting. “Go ahead. I’d like to see what you want to ask me.”

Audrey pointed at the program on the TV and asked, “This news said just now that the Duncan Corporation is about to face an economic crisis, supposedly because of some core information being leaked. Is it true?”

Brian looked at her carefully, with a smile in his eyes. “It seems that you lost your mind just now still because you were thinking about a man in your mind. It’s just this man is not your ex, but your future brother-in-law Branden.”

He had an immodest look on his face, which completely angered Audrey. 11 Nevermind. Forget it if you don’t want to tell me. I’ll go and ask someone else.”

Seeing Audrey about to leave, Brian yanked her back. “Alright, I stop it. You just want to know about the Duncan Corporation, right? You got the right person. Others may not necessarily know it better than me.”

His words sounded like they had a deeper meaning. Audrey looked Brian up and down.

Audrey was too simple. She didn’t hide the expression in her eyes and Brian immediately saw through what she was thinking. He smiled and said, “What? Are you worried that I am the one stealing the information of the Duncan Corporation?”

“Hmph!” Audrey coldly snorted in disdain. “You’re capable of doing that?”

Brian’s eyes sank slightly, and a hint of malice flashed in his eyes, but he didn’t continue to say anything else.

Seeing his silence, Audrey became anxious again. “Aren’t you going to tell me? Why don’t you continue?”

Brian’s expression became serious when he mentioned the matter in the business world. Only at this moment did Audrey feel that he looked like a serious heir of a conglomerate rather than a lazy rich heir.

Brian said seriously, “It should be true that the Duncan Corporation’s information was leaked. Do you remember the cooperation between the Duncan Corporation and the Breen Group some time ago? If my information is reliable, it should be the core information of this project that was leaked.”

“What consequences will that lead to? Will it be serious?” Audrey asked eagerly.

Her anxious attitude annoyed Brian immensely. Even though he knew they couldn’t be together forever, it still irked him to see Audrey so concerned about another man.

He was thinking of punishing her a bit, but he couldn’t bear to do it. After all, he genuinely liked Audrey.

“Large companies will usually stipulate in contracts when collaborating on projects that if the loss of benefits is due to one of the parties, the other party will have the right to propose the termination of the contract and ask for corresponding compensation from the other party. The project they are working on is very large and the amount involved is huge. If the Duncan Corporation were to unilaterally compensate, it would indeed cause a huge crisis for the Duncan Corporation. If the situation gets any worse, the Duncan Corporation may go bankrupt,” said he.

Brian’s answer caused Audrey’s relaxed brows to completely furrow again. She originally thought it was nothing big, but now it seemed that things were more complicated and troublesome than she imagined.

“Will the Breen Group sue the Duncan Corporation?” Audrey asked with a worried look on her face.

Brian rubbed his chin and slowly said, ” If I were the owner of the Breen Group, I would!”

The two companies were now in a cooperative relationship, and they could be on opposite sides at the next moment. Since there was such a good opportunity to defeat the opponent, who would miss it?

Audrey could no longer be calm. Thinking that Catherine had already gone through so much over the years, that it was not easy for her to have a peaceful life, and that the Duncan Corporation was about to face another crisis, Audrey was too anxious to sit still. “No! I have to go and take a look.”

Seeing that she was about to do something impetuous again, Brian immediately stopped her. “Are you going to go to Catherine, or run to question Branden? Have you ever thought that maybe the last thing they need right now is concern? Your appearance will only add to their troubles. Duncan Corporation is so big. It has stood firm for so many years, and with a solid foundation, it will not easily collapse. More importantly, its current heir Branden is a formidable figure. Do you think you can outshine him?”

Brian’s words silenced Audrey as she reflected that even if she went, she wouldn’t be able to help.

Although Brian’s words might be hurtful, what he said was true. How could she outshine Branden?

If even Branden couldn’t solve the problem, she would only be adding to the trouble. After thinking it through, Audrey sat back down on the couch with a frustrated face and sighed silently.

Seeing her like this, Brian said slowly, ” If you really want to help them, I have a way.”

Hearing that, Audrey’s eyes immediately lit up and she raised her eyes toward Brian. “What do you mean by this? You have a good solution?”

Catherine Swann, a simple countryside girl, was having a leisurely and carefree life in the countryside. She thought she could have a happy life there for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, life had other plans for her. Her grandfather left a will for her, making her the inheritor of the Swanns’ billion-dollar fortune. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, he also arranged a marriage for her.

Branden Duncan, the only heir of the wealthiest family in Casier, was the dream prince charming of almost all the women in Casier. But Catherine turned him down in public. Instead of being angry about it, he was attracted by Catherine's cold eyes.Although Catherine seemed to be a girl with a simple life in the countryside, she was not simple. What kind of identity did she have? How would she deal with her unexpected fiancé and the opposition from the rest of the Swanns to her inheritance of the Swanns’ fortune?

Chapter 1 Return of the Jinx At Vicente Swann's funeral. As the Swanns were one of the three prominent families in Casier, Vicente's funeral was naturally packed with big shots and members of respected families in Casier. In the noisy venue, the arrival of a girl in a white T-shirt attracted the attention of everyone present. All of the people present were either rich or powerful. Despite being good-looking, the girl wore a cheap and battered T-shirt, setting her apart from everyone else at the funeral. Seeing how she walked straight toward the Swanns family, someone couldn't help asking curiously, "Who is she? Why is she sitting with the Swanns?" "I heard that she is Miss Catherine, the second daughter of the Swanns that had lived away from the family. Vicente only asked her to come back before he died." "Is that so? I heard that Vicente ordered the family to announce his will in front of everyone before he died. I guess she only returned for this!" ... The girl did not know that she had already become the topic of the guests' discussions. She looked calmly ahead with an indifferent expression on her face. Her eyes remained focused on Vicente's portrait in the middle of the venue. Nobody knew what she was thinking about at the time. At the sight of Catherine Swann like this, Liana Swann, the youngest and favorite daughter of the Swanns, couldn't help complaining to her mother, who was sitting next to her. "Mom, what is going on with this country girl? Grandpa has died. Even if she isn't sad, she should at least pretend to cry. What would the others think if the media took a photo of her like this later? She wouldn't even change her clothes when we asked her to. People that don't know better would think that the Swanns have mistreated her!" After hearing her youngest daughter's complaints, Rachael Swann furrowed her brows too. She thought that her youngest daughter did have a point. She never loved Catherine, her daughter from the countryside, dearly. In fact, Catherine pissed Rachael off just one day after she had returned. However, it was not the right time for Rachael to handle Catherine now. She planned to wait until the funeral was over before sending Catherine back to the countryside so that Catherine wouldn't continue to embarrass the Swanns here. Looking up, Rachael saw that her husband had arrived. She comforted her youngest daughter in a low voice, "Liana, be good. Your father is here. Bear with Catherine for now. We need to deal with what is important first!" Liana couldn't show her annoyance towards Catherine in public, so she could only choke back the complaints on the tip of her tongue. Nobody noticed that Catherine, who had been looking straight ahead, smiled lightly. The Swanns never spent time with Catherine, so they wouldn't know she had exceptional hearing. Even though Rachael and Liana spoke in a low voice, Catherine clearly heard every word of their exchange. Her mother truly did not love her! As Catherine stared at Vicente's portrait, her eyes flashed with a faint trace of sadness. Did she have to cry because of pain? ... Korbin Swann walked up the stage slowly. He gave a long speech first and expressed his views about how great Vicente was before finally announcing that the family would publicly announce Vicente's will. As many people knew this beforehand, the crowd was not too surprised. Vicente had a son and daughter. It was a no-brainer who would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. However, nobody understood why Vicente would make sure to make such a fuss to announce his will publicly. Was it just for formality? The lawyer Vicente trusted the most when he was still alive opened the sealed will and read it out loud. "After careful consideration, I, Vicente Swann, leave all my shares of the Swann Corporation, real estate properties, and a 500 million-dollar deposit at the Bank of Nospines to my granddaughter, Catherine Swann..." At the lawyer's words, the crowd gasped in shock. Not even the Swanns, everyone present was dumbfounded. Catherine Swann? Wasn't she the second daughter of the Swanns, the jinx that Vicente sent off to be raised in the countryside when she was young? How could it be? She would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. With their jaws dropped, everyone shared a similar look of horror. Except for Catherine, the center of the discussion. She still looked indifferent, as though nothing had happened. Her eyes were still fixed on Vicente's portrait in the center of the hall. Her lips parted slightly as she spoke in an almost inaudible voice. "Old man, what were you thinking?"
