Edgar came out of the bedroom to the living room and saw Hannah treating Jessica’s wound.
Jessica’s face was scraped, and her glasses were broken. It was the most unlucky day in her life.
“Ms. Carter, I’ve figured it out. The Manskarta government hired an organization called Blood Skull to kill you,” Edgar said to Jessica.
Jessica smiled and said, “I’ve known about it. I was just about to tell you, but I didn’t expect you to have the information.”
Hannah said, “Don’t smile. I can’t treat your wounds if you smile.”
“Oh!” Jessica was embarrassed and put on a straight face so that Hannah could treat the wounds on her face.
Edgar said thoughtfully, “It seems that the Carter family has fallen out with the Manskarta government. Otherwise, they would not have resorted to such extreme methods.”
Jessica replied, “It doesn’t matter. I didn’t die this time, and I will get even with them after I go back to Manskarta.”
The Carter family was not to be offended. Both sides fought for their own interests. Jessica survived this time, and the Manskarta government would have to pay a considerable price after she returned.
The Carter family was like a king in Manskarta. It had its own soldiers and was wealthy. The Manskarta government tried to get rid of the Carter family and seize power. However, the Carter family was too powerful to be rooted. The powerless and poor government had to resort to despicable methods secretly since it lacked the power to confront the big shot.
“Tomorrow the plane of the War Department will come to Mimar City to pick you up and send you back to Manskarta,” Edgar said.
“Can I trust them? If not, I’d better take a passenger plane,” Jessica said.
No country or force dared to attack passenger planes. Otherwise, it would be condemned by the whole world.
Edgar said, “You can trust them. It’s safe. Don’t worry. I can assure you of this.”
Jessica said, “Since you say so, I’ll trust them.”
Hannah applied the last bit of medicine to Jessica’s face and said with a smile, “It’s done!”
Jessica couldn’t help asking, “What are you laughing at?”
Hannah said without hesitation, “I’m laughing at you.”
Jessica looked at her in surprise, the corners of her mouth twitching.
Hannah said, “You showed up in the company today and surprised all of us. It’s hilarious to see you in such a mess for the first time.”
Jessica shook her head helplessly and said wryly, “That’s mean of you. You can’t do that.”
Hannah lowered her head and put away the medicines with a smile on her lips. She was not gloating but simply finding it interesting.
It was hard to imagine such an elegant and confident woman like Jessica would make a mess of herself. Hannah even wanted to see if Jessica had any quirks.
It must be very interesting!
Edgar asked the hotel staff to bring them some food and red wine. Stefan first checked if the food and drinks were poisoned and then had the bedtime snacks with the two women.
“I wanted to stay in Mimar city for a few more days to see if there was any industry worth investing in. I didn’t expect that I would have to go back tomorrow,” Jessica said sullenly when she held the fork and ate a piece of tender beef.
“There is always a chance. After things are settled, you can come back again,” Edgar said.
Stefan was frightened. If Jessica accidentally died here, he couldn’t take the consequences and might get into big trouble.
Hannah said, “You can consider investing in the pharmaceutical industry. The medicines of the hospitals in Neva Province were supplied by companies outside. We need a local pharmaceutical company. The government wants local companies to do it. After all, the profits have to stay inside the province.”
Jessica said, “Good idea. I will give you 200 million, and you can help me with this.”
Hannah was stunned.
Is Jessica so rich and generous?
I made a casual suggestion, and she gave me 200 million?
Hannah wondered if Jessica was generous or stupid.
“Forget it. I’m busy managing Poly Capital, and I have to take care of my family’s companies. I’ll die of heavy work if I open a pharmaceutical company.” Hannah resolutely refused.
Jessica smiled and narrowed her eyes. She seemed to think of something, but she didn’t say it.
After eating and drinking, they relaxed and felt sleepy.
Jessica yawned and said, “I’ll go to sleep.”
Looking at Jessica’s curvy figure, Edgar was inexplicably regretful. After tomorrow, he wouldn’t have any chance to see this gorgeous woman.
“You don’t want her to leave. Why don’t you go to Manskarta to protect her?” Hannah pinched Edgar’s ear and asked with a smile.
“You’re jealous. Look at your face. You’re as green as a pea,” Edgar retorted.
Hannah bit his ear with a low howl.
Jessica woke up in the middle of the night. After drinking the wine, she felt thirsty, so she went to the living room for water. She saw some light through the creek of the door to another bedroom. It was quite late at night. As a result, the faint noise from the room was clear.
“Damn it!” Jessica frowned slightly and couldn’t help cursing, she blushed.
She cautiously took a glass and fetched the water quietly like a thief, afraid to interrupt the couple in the bedroom.
“Who’s prettier, Jessica or me?”
Hearing this, Jessica couldn’t help but stop.
“Of course, you are prettier…”
“Why? She is tall and has long legs. She’s beautiful and from a wealthy family. When I saw her speak a foreign language today, I was charmed by her. If I were a man, I would chase her.”
“What’s the use of long legs if she doesn’t wear black silk stockings?”
Jessica didn’t expect the two of them to gossip about her. She smiled wryly, a hint of anger coming across her eyes.
When Edgar got up and went out of the bedroom the next morning, he saw Jessica sitting on the sofa and eating breakfast.
“Good morning, let’s have breakfast together!” Jessica gave a bright smile at the sight of Abraham, who was refreshed by her beauty.
“Good morning…” When Edgar went up to her, he saw Jessica cross her legs and shift on the sofa.
His eyes fell on her long legs. Stefan gasped. Stefan guessed he would give a different answer if Hannah asked the same question again.
When Hannah came out of the bedroom, she was taken aback, thinking
Ms. Carter, do you have to go so far?
After breakfast, Edgar received a call from the War Department, asking him to take Jessica to the airport.
Jessica walked in the front deliberately, revealing a pair of long legs in black silk stockings. Proud as she was, she cared about how people thought of her beauty.
