The woman didn’t dare to refuse. She swallowed the pill right away, frowning as she did so because of the bitter taste.
“Your gut has been poisoned. Without the antidote, the poison will make your gut rot away, and you’ll die in seven days. As long as you do as I say, and once Michael is dead, I’ll get someone to send you the antidote…” Christopher Lancelot said.
The woman nodded furiously with a fearful look in her eyes…
Without saying anything else, Christopher uncuffed the woman. “Before you go, clean this place up…”
“Yes…” The woman said with a respectful nod.
After that, Christopher slowly stood up and opened the door as if nothing happened. He looked over at Xyla, who stood by the entrance.
Lazily, Christopher leaned against the door and watched her.
He still seemed like a thug. “What a coincidence that I bumped into you here… You used to go out with a group of people… Why are you alone today? In fact, you nearly…” Xyla trailed off.
Something bad nearly happened to him.
“I was just playing along. Do you believe me?” Christopher chuckled.
He felt suspicious about that woman long ago. That was why when the woman took the initiative to seduce him and even asked him out to have fun, Christopher agreed without even thinking about it.
After that, he secretly gathered his men to wait outside the bar for an ambush. He was planning to bait the woman’s boss out by himself, but he didn’t expect this woman to be doing this alone.
Christopher wasn’t sure if his enemy was too dumb or if that person had underestimated him.
When the woman tried to kill him earlier, he wanted to find out everything and kill her right away. After killing her, Christopher would use her phone to contact the person who instructed her to kill him.
He would let the person know that he was dead.
After that, he would kill that person once his guard was down, ending things once and for all. However, after bumping into Xyla, his plan changed. He didn’t want to kill someone in front of her. He didn’t want to taint her eyes. Hence, he changed his mind.
“I believe you,” Xyla said confidently.
Who was Christopher?
He was like a king in this environment. In his position, why would he put himself in danger?
Also, how could anyone easily fool him?
“What will you do to the person inside?” Xyla asked.
“Don’t worry. She will take care of herself, and she’ll remove all evidence,” Christopher replied.
When Xyla heard this, she gently brushed her hair. “Since you’re fine… I’ll go look for my friend…” Xyla said.
However, Christopher didn’t seem to want to let her leave. He grabbed her by the wrist.
“What is it?” Xyla pulled away and asked.
“Nothing. It’s so hard to bump into you. Now that we’ve met in a bar, aren’t you going to buy me a drink?” Christopher asked.
“I’m sure you must have a lot of work to deal with, right? You probably won’t have time to drink with me,” Xyla said.
After finding out who was trying to mess with him, Christopher naturally would take action against that person.
Why would he have time to drink with her?
“I’m just kidding… To be honest, I have a question for you…” Christopher said.
“What is it?” Xyla asked.
“Do you love Stanley Batton a lot?” He asked.
“Yes…” Xyla answered.
“If you lose him, would you kill yourself?” he asked.
“Probably not. But I’d feel very miserable as if half my life is gone…” Xyla said honestly.
Xyla loved Stanley more than she loved herself. If she lost him one day, it would probably be very devastating.
“In that case, do you know that he…” Christopher stopped himself halfway through the sentence.
“What is it?” Xyla asked.
“Forget it… Nothing… Some things are better, not known,” Christopher waved his hand dismissively after stopping himself short of saying what he wanted to.
Xyla began to feel curious after hearing what Christopher said.
