“Hurry up and leave. You guys still have one minute.” With that, Mark left in a hurry.
Arielle and Vinson did not know why Mark had let them go, but they were running out of time. Since Mark had distracted those who wanted to capture them, the duo seized the opportunity and fled the apartment.
When they arrived at the parking lot, Arielle swung open the car door while Vinson placed Lorraine, who was on his back, into the backseat. Arielle, too, sat in the backseat to take ca re of Lorraine.
“Vinson, take us to the hospital,” she said.
While Arielle and Vinson were busy handling Lorraine, Aaron and his team followed Monisha to carry out some investigations.
When he saw the warehouse packed with military arms, his heart fell further deeper into despair.
The queen mother has so many military arms!
Did Father not know about this?
Aaron narrowed his eyes. He could not figure out what Nancy was up to.
She’s already Turlen’s queen mother, the second most powerful person in Turlen apart from the king.
What else does she want? What else does she want to do?
She’d been controlling Father and even ruling Turlen alone for so many years. Is that still not enough?
Why does she still need so many military arms?
If Arielle hadn’t found out about this by chance, half of these would’ve been seized by someone else.
The thought of how Nancy’s actions could bring permanent harm to Turlen made him lose control over his emotions.
“Stay here and watch over them. If anyone comes to move them, snatch it away from them,” Aaron instructed in a low voice and walked off.
He feared he would lose control over himself and kill Nancy if he continued looking at the military arms.
Meanwhile, the doctor examined Lorraine at the hospital. Her wound was inflamed since it was not dealt with in time and she was locked up in a dark and damp place. On top of that, she was having a fever. Hence, the doctor bandaged her wound and gave her an IV drip.
Since she had no friends or family there, so Arielle offered to stay back and look after her even though the doctor told Arielle that Lorraine would only wake up on the second day.
Arielle did not want to leave Lorraine alone at the hospital even if the latter was only going to wake up on the second day.
Vinson’s cold gaze had a trace of warmth as he looked at his wife.
She’s always so kind. That’s why I keep falling for her.
“Vinson, why do you think Mark let us go? Is he not afraid the Duke will find out about his doings?” Arielle could not grasp the situation.
“You silly woman.” Vinson tapped her head gently, causing her to turn around and glare at him unhappily.
She snorted and said, “The fact that you still fell for such a silly woman makes you sillier.”
Vinson was stumped.
Seeing his reaction, Arielle smirked.
“Didn’t you hear? Mark and Linda were having an affair. The Duke is the only person they fear.” Vinson paused briefly and told her about his speculation.
“I’m thinking Linda might be Duke’s woman, and she and Mark love each other…”
Although Vinson did not finish his sentence, Arielle felt that his suspicion was pretty close.
It’s likely that Mark is doing this to get our help to defeat the Duke. That way, he can be with Linda.
Then again, regardless of if their suspicion was correct, they were fine with anything, as long as Mark’s actions were beneficial to them.
Meanwhile, a cold voice rang out from the dark corner of the apartment. “Why did you do that? Why did you let them go?”
