After thinking about it for a moment, Jordan suddenly thought of a good idea, so he called Helen again and explained his plan to her.
Meanwhile, her anxious heart relaxed after listening to his plan. Her eyes were filled with displeasure when she glanced at the couple, but she did not head over and expose their acts immediately. Instead, she followed Jordan’s instructions and approached the woman.
“Good day, madam. Since we can’t tell what’s happening, why don’t we call for an ambulance? Your husband seems to be in a critical situation!”
The woman became anxious. ‘Ambulance? We don’t need an ambulance! Wouldn’t our plan be exposed once we call an ambulance? We can use this chlorine trick to fool ordinary people, but doctors will immediately discover the truth with just one look.’
“No way. How would I know if you guys would take responsibility after sending my husband to the hospital? What can’t you people do? If you guys can’t settle this matter right now, we will not leave your doorstep!”
Noticing how the woman was not cooperating, Helen continued to ask, “But what would happen to your husband if you don’t send him to the hospital?”
“Also, if the medical results show that it was our drugs that caused this, I assure you that I will compensate you every penny you deserve or even willingly go to jail for this matter.”
Since she knew the truth behind this matter, she felt more confident. Also, her willingness to admit to her mistakes calmed the angry bystanders, and some even discovered some loopholes after noticing Helen’s confident attitude.
They wondered, ‘Although the woman was crying so pitifully shouldn’t sending her husband to the hospital be her top priority?’
‘Isn’t human life more important than getting justice?’
At that moment, the woman wailing on the ground realized that the situation had gotten out of hand. According to the original plan, she only needed to bring her ‘sick’ husband over here and wall to attract attention.
Following that, someone within the crowd would be inciting the bystanders’ emotions and ending it by trashing up Cunningham Pharmaceuticals.
Before the plan was executed, the couple had already received a hundred thousand as repayment and they were promised another hundred thousand for their performance. To their dismay, they did not expect Helen to insist on calling for an ambulance right before their plan was about to succeed.
Under normal circumstances, shouldn’t the person who encounters such disruptions feel flustered and anxious?
Seeing their plan crumbling, the woman decided to just go with it and demanded, “You should give me five million for medical fees first. I’ll return the leftover money to you if there is any, and you’ll give me more if it’s insufficient.“
By now, the woman had revealed her true intentions, but the crowd had yet to discover it and thought she was merely trying to prevent the pharmacy’s owner from escaping.
Of course, many thought that woman was naive. If the store owner was willing to give her that much money, it should mean that she would not sell fake drugs. Even worse, what shocked the crowd was that Helen agreed to the woman’s request without hesitation.
“Sure, but we have to be clear that if your husband didn’t get sick from our drugs, you would have to pay back every penny we gave you. I have recorded our conversation as evidence.” She waved her phone.
When the woman saw Helen’s seriousness, she thought her plan had succeeded. “Sure, no problem!”
After she agreed, she gave Helen her bank details. Helen then took a picture of it and sent it to Jordan.
Soon, the woman’s phone lit up. She unlocked it to find a message from the bank.
“50,000,000.00 has been credited to your bank account!”
Since there were too many zeros, the woman carefully counted, “Ones, tens… Millions, ten million! Oh my gosh! It’s fifty million!”
Hearing that number, the husband lying in the woman’s arms could not help but tremble. Steven then sneaked a peek at Helen and smiled mischievously.
‘Since she isn’t aware, why should I remind her?’
