After reading Zack Cassidy’s reply, Stanley Batton fixed his gaze on Xyla Quest. Xyla, on the other hand, had already fallen asleep here and now.
Meanwhile, Zack texted him again and asked, “Do you have any other questions?”
Stanley decided to ignore the message so he threw his phone to the side and headed to the bathroom to wash up.
The next morning, Xyla was awakened by a sudden noise of the phone vibrating.
Stanley also opened his eyes slowly and stretched his arm at the coffee table, his fingertips searching for his phone. He got up from the couch and shuffled to the floor-to-ceiling window to pick up the call.
Xyla sat up and casually stretched her back. She then grasped her phone and clicked open the news app.
“Fifth Master, Logan Dankworth, the lawyer of Sullivan Food Group, had taken all the blame for bribing the police officers. The case had escalated into a huge ruckus and it went viral on the internet, garnering the attention of almost every citizen.”
“As for Mary Sullivan, although she had instructed people to harm our Seventh Mistress, she didn’t cause any harm to her personally. Therefore, she’ll only be detained for a month later on. The Chairman’s mistress of Sullivan Group was behind the incident. Everything was orchestrated by her. The President had made a call just now, hoping that we’ll put a stop to the incident before it’s aggravated as the matter had excessively affected the credibility of police officers.”
Zack reported the matter to Stanley as detailed as possible, the seriousness in his tone was only amplified with each word he spoke.
Stanley’s eyes only expressed calmness as he strode to the balcony and observed the heavy traffic on the street underneath. “Keep an eye on Mary for the next month.”
Zack snorted in response. “Of course I will.”
Shortly after, Stanley hung up the phone and returned to the ward. In the meantime, Xyla was reading a trending news on her phone. Her attention was fully drawn to it such that she did not notice Stanley’s appearance at all.
The news said that no less than forty police officers, from the police station that was in charge of Catherine Batton’s case-were fired for colluding with the Sullivans, perverting the course of justice. These police officers involved ranged from the senior officers to the police constabulary. Furthermore, Mary Sullivan would be detained for a month as she had hired people to harm Catherine Batton. Last but not least, Logan Dankworth, as a lawyer of Sullivan Food Group, was sentenced to three years of imprisonment for bribing the police officers.
Upon reading the news, Xyla’s mood was lifted instantly, her heart leaped up for joy.
Stepping forward, Stanley sat beside her and peeked at the screen of the phone, his face remained expressionless. “What would you like to have for breakfast? I’ll get it for you.”
A smile blossomed on Xyla’s face when she brought the phone to his eyes and shook it happily at him. “Did you see that? All of them have been punished.”
Stanley’s mouth curved up into a shallow arc. “Indeed.”
At the same time, Catherine was reading about the news too in her own ward. Likewise, she could hardly contain her happiness to receive such good news in the morning.
Engulfed with joy, she stretched her body comfortably and sat up from the bed.
Detaining Mary for a month was more than enough for her. It worked off her anger just by imagining Mary wailing and weeping in the jail!
Knock knock knock…
A short series of raps from the door broke the silence in the ward and interrupted Catherine’s thoughts. She found herself turning to face the door subconsciously. “Please come in.”
In response, the door was pushed open slightly.
Josh Batton sneaked into the ward and locked the door immediately. He was wearing a grey hoodie, his hat stacked on top of the hood. His face was covered with a huge sunglasses as well as a mask, barely exposing any of his flesh. His entire face was safely and perfectly covered. The only things that were visible were his hands which were carrying two large bags of food.
Nevertheless, the strong noble aura exuded from him was impossible to hide or disguise.
“Sixth brother, why are you here?” Catherine’s eyes opened wide, attentive and brimming with surprise. “Aren’t you supposed to be shooting a commercial overseas now?”
She clearly remembered that her brother had informed her about that when he gave her a call last night to inquire about the incident.
Strutting forward, Josh sat near the edge of her bed and slowly took off his sunglasses and mask. He placed them on the bedside table before he answered her question. “I’m worried about you so I decided to pay you a visit first… I’ll be leaving in a short while.”
Catherine felt her heart melt hearing her brother’s words. “Aww… Sixth brother, you’re so nice to me.”
Josh stroked her hair gently and lovingly. “How are you? Everything’s alright?”
Catherine nodded in response. “It’s not too bad I supposed. The pain is gone this morning.”
