Shea’s brows instantly furrowed. She anxiously approached Wesley and held both of his hands.
“My brother definitely won’ t take my blood… He knew that I could save Robert, but he never asked for my help… That’s exactly why I need to save Robert. I’m begging you, Wesley.”
Her voice was soft as she begged.
” If I die, then I’ll marry you in my next life. How’s that, Wesley?” She held his hands tightly, then suddenly beamed and said, “I don’t think I’ll die, though. Mrs. Scarlet says I’ve got nine lives. No matter what sickness I get, the doctors could always cure me.”
As Wesley gazed at the smile on her face and the light in her eyes, his hardened heart gradually began to melt.
He asked himself why he liked being with Shea. Was it not because of her pure kindness?
In her European-style mansion, Wanda was wearing a silk robe and, after taking a sip of red wine to calm her nerves, dialed Charlie ‘s number.
She got to know Charlie through Chelsea.
They had dinner the night before last and walked about some business matters. The two of them shared many of the same ideas, so their conversation was very agreeable.
“He said he lost a maroon box?” Charlie began to imagine what that maroon box looked like.
“That’s right. He said that you took it.” Wanda drew a cold breath, then said, “What exactly do you have on him? Can you tell me?”
“Of course I can’t tell you. What if you use it to threaten him if I did?” Charlie said shrewdly. ” Don’t worry, though. You’ll be safe as long as you listen to me.”
“How could I trust you?”
“Chelsea did worse things than you did! If I can protect her, then I could naturally protect you!” Charlie said. “Did he say how he lost that maroon box? Is there anything special about the way it looks?”
“He didn’t say. He said it was with you, but I guess he was wrong. ” Wanda’s eyes twinkled with a hint of slyness. ” I bet his deepest secret is hidden inside of that box. Who do you think could’ve taken it?”
“I didn’t even know about a maroon box before you
mentioned it to me. If I knew about it, then I would’ve already used it to threaten him…”
“Hahaha! He thinks you’ve got the box. If you revealed that it isn’t with you, then he won’t be afraid of you anymore. ” W;c’ (< %?la changed her tone and said, “We’re on the same boat now, Tierney. If you don’t guarantee my safety, then I’ll tell him that the box isn’t with you at all!”
“You truly are skilled and ruthless, Wanda Tate!”
“I don’t have a choice. I was forced into this.” Wanda’s strained mood relaxed. “Let’s look for that box moving forward. I’m looking forward to a great partnership.”
At three in the morning, there was news that the city’s blood bank received a bag filled with a little over a pint of suitable blood.
The tests found that the blood was a match for Robert, and that it was non-toxic.
The blood was immediately sent to the hospital where Robert was staying.
The attending doctor was overcome with joy and quickly sent a message to Elliot and Avery.
Avery had trouble sleeping recently, and she immediately woke up when she received the message.
After reading the text, she thought she was dreaming.
Just as she was about to call the doctor, she received a call from Mike.
When she answered the call, Mike’s clear and powerful voice came through the phone.
“I’m sorry Avery! The blood I found was a match for Robert, but it wasn’t clean… “
