Xyla was saying it word by word. She was as calm as a general coordinating his troop.
“The reasons why he did that today was because, firstly, he wanted to take revenge on us. Secondly, he did that to take videos of us doing filthy things in order to take control of us so that we will not dare to expose anything.” Xyla spoke again.
“You’re right.” Georgie Clementine agreed to her stand.
“Do you still have any questions? Like why did I let him go? Why didn’t I send him straight to the police station?” Xyla’s voice was getting weaker and weaker.
At that moment, she felt that the world before her was also starting to spin.
“You have your reasons for the things you do.” Georgie smiled.
“For the time being, you left him out there to be on the loose. You should have a perfect plan up your sleeves and that plan would be able to put him in jail for the rest of his life… It can even stop his father and uncle from bailing him out.”
“Even if we made a big deal out of what happened today, he will only be sentenced to two or three years in jail. Therefore, we need him to be in good condition so that he can continue doing what he wants. Only then, he will get himself into a bigger problem and spend more years in prison.” Georgie poured out everything that was on her mind.
She knew what Xyla was thinking. She did not want to expose all the nasty stuff Fred Thomson did but she wanted to avenge the victims and clear out the obstacles for society. In order to achieve that, she needed another solution and clearly, she had some ideas in her mind.
“You’re indeed my BFF, Georgie.” Xyla was gratified and she smiled. “How are you doing? Is your wound serious? Does that drug still have an effect on you?”
“I’m feeling okay… Other than the pain on my body and I feel kinda weak, there’s nothing else. That drug still has some effect on me but I can handle that.” Georgie replied truthfully.
“Look for a phone stand and give Five Batton a call. Ask him to send over some of his men and wait for us at the entrance of First People’s Hospital. Let them come to protect us while we’re there, just in case.” After finishing, Xyla quickly gave the man’s handphone number.
At that moment, Georgie found a public telephone booth right outside coincidentally. She immediately took out a few coins from her pocket and got out of the car right away.
The call was picked up in an instant.
After her call was answered, Georgie recounted everything that happened since yesterday and told everything to the person on the other side of the phone. She then told him all of Xyla’s instructions as well. In order to not deliberately create other problems, she ended the call immediately before she could get a reply from them. She went back into the car and continued to accelerate to the hospital.
Meanwhile, Xyla was transferring all the data in Fred’s phone into her own phone.
On the other side of the phone, Stanley Batton was at a sky garden private room in Unawakened Bar which was located at the top floor and was having a game of poker with Sebastian Brenand, Henry Armstrong and Gary Lakes.
After he answered the phone, his face darkened. He threw away the cards that was in his hand immediately.
Quickly he stubbed out the cigarette which he was holding into the crystal ashtray beside him and stood up with a dark face. “Fred! He’s trying to get himself killed!”
Stanley’s reaction really shocked everyone around him. They were all talking and laughing a few minutes ago but now, everyone’s eyes were on him.
All this time, Stanley always had his poker face on. Sebastian and the few of them had always believed that he was the kind of person who would still remain calm even if there was an avalanche right in front of him.
“Stanley, what happened? What did Fred just do?” Sebastian had his eyes wide open and looked at Stanley.
“He messed with Xyla.” Stanley said in a cold tone.
As soon as he said that, he promptly grabbed the long black retro woolen coat which was hanging on the wall. He put it on and rushed out of the room. The entire process only took him three seconds.
Sebastian, Henry, and Gary looked at each other and went to grab their clothes immediately as well. They followed Stanley from behind.
