Elliot was not only repaying her but her father—for several years now, to boot.
"Please don't blame President Presgrave anymore, Miss Tillman. He hasn't done anything wrong. He's been taking care of your father all these years." Since Rey was the one to witness everything all these years, he only wanted to speak up on his boss' behalf in the face of Anastasia's questioning.
At this moment, Elliot stared silently as the color drained out of Anastasia's face. He wanted to say something but didn't know what to say.
"It's what I should have done," he finally uttered before leaving with Rey.
As Anastasia stood there with her mind blank, Francis emerged excitedly with the employees whom he had brought along. "What are you doing here, Anastasia? We can leave now. Let's pick Jared up and head out for a celebration dinner this evening." Naturally, he didn't know who had helped him win the bid.
