John was not stingy with his praise.
"That's very smart."
Cordy blushed for some reason, feeling as if John was treating her like a kid just then, and she was not
used to talking to him like this.
Changing the subject, she said, "You told me over the phone you'd tell me about Zoe.So?"
John scowled slightly, but said, "I didn't want to tell you because you can't even protect yourself right
now, but I'd never dare hide it from you."
Cordy bit her lip, a little speechless from the way he used 'never dare’.He really was petty.
"Anyway, Zoe had an accident at the film set last night, and she's at the hospital right now..."
"Don't worry.She's safe although it was a little serious, just a little liver rupture causing massive
bleeding.She has since regained consciousness, and she'll be discharged in a week."
"Why didn't you tell me?" Cordy exclaimed a little angrily just then.
"I could keep her company at the hospital."
She certainly remembered that Zoe had always been an earnest friend, showering her with all the
kindness and affection she could give.How could she do nothing now that Zoe was in trouble?! One he
read through the bank records, he called Cordy.
"I've found something."
"What is it?" Cordy asked—she had been staying home to research her own trial, combing for any
things her opponent missed.
"I'll come over to discuss it." John said just then.
"Okay." Cordy agreed to it immediately before remembering something else.
"Zoe's phone is turned off. What event is it that she had to turn it off?"
For some reason, the house felt much emptier without Zoe around.
"I'll tell you later." John said nonetheless.
Cordy had this feeling that he was hiding something from her.
Zoe never answered her calls last night, and John called her later saying that Zoe would not make it
back because of an event.She did not dwell on it since things got busy in showbiz and wire stunts were
But when Zoe turned her phone off directly today, she suddenly felt uneasy.
In under half an hour, John entered her apartment and showed her the ledgers of Helen Zalenski's
bank records that he obtained.
"She transferred to this account multiple times, and each sum was considerable," he explained.
"I had my people investigate it, and it turns out to belong to an illegal gambling ring —it was likely that
Helen had been gambling and owed a huge debt.I'm sure you also know how cutthroat those people
get, what with debtors often losing limbs for it, or even their lives.That's why there's a good chance she
made that phony account to incriminate you to pay for her debts." Cordy nodded in agreement.
"We have her motive, but the key point now is where the money's coming from.Have you found the
"It was wired in from different accounts, none of which can be traced back to Noel," John admitted.
"But I'll look into each account holder.There would definitely be some sort of clue."
"But we don't have much time," Cordy said, because time was a serious issue despite her faith in
"I'll do my best," John promised.
Cordy did not press him at that point and returned to structuring her defense.
"I just remembered today that Quinn mentioned that on the day that phony account was made, the
cameras at the bank broke down.But although it doesn't prove that I wasn't there personally, I could
actually just prove that I was not at the bank that day."
John blinked, his gaze obviously praiseful.
Cordy was really smart.
John himself had planned to revolve his entire investigation around Helen and actually ignored that
"I did my best to remember,"
Cordy continued, "but I had been working the whole day at Startstream Group at the time and headed
straight home after leaving work.I've asked Vince to discreetly extract the footage and save it for me. It
would probably work as court evidence."
