Chapter 168 Which Woman Would You Like to See Bleed First
Sharon frowned at seeing the face of the woman in front of her turn pale. She said viciously, “What are you doing? I’m telling you–I can now fix you as easily as killing an ant. Don’t try to pull any tricks in front of me. Otherwise – Aaaaaah!”
Before Sharon could finish her sentence, a wooden stick hit her hard on the back. She screamed and fell into a
puddle on the ground.
Kisa snapped back and was ready to run. Just as she spun around, she felt a dull pain shot through the back of her shoulder. She grunted, eyes rolling back, and she passed
out at once.
The spring rain went on and on, and worries flooded his mind. Gilbert was standing in front of the window
looking out at the rain, his upright back exuding an indescribable loneliness and sadness.
Davian sorted his hair, which was blown out of shape by the wind and rain, before he came in. “Mr. Kooper.”
“Is there any news of her whereabouts?”
“I have sent men to look everywhere, but they haven’t found Mrs. Kooper.”
Gilbert was silent.
Davian said again, “Don’t worry. Mrs. Kooper is probably hiding with her best friend, or maybe Ariella has taken her in.”
“No. She won’t go to them in this situation.”
“T–Then she may have found a place to hide herself. You should not worry too much. Alas, where are you going, Mr. Kooper?”
Gilbert grabbed his jacket from the couch and walked
outside. Just then, his phone rang. It was a video call from Kisa. Gilbert’s heart skipped a beat; Kisa had never rarely called him, let alone video calling. He felt strange, but still quickly picked it up. The second the call came through, his face turned grave instantly.
The background of the video looked like a dilapidated warehouse. Two women were tied up by their hands and feet, thrown on the ground. Howard was standing
between them with an evil sneer on his face. “I have both of your women now.”
“What do you want?” Gilbert forced the words through his teeth, his horrible murderous aura making Davian afraid to approach.
But Howard, like a madman at the end of his rope, spread out his hands and grinned. “I want nothing. I’m video – calling you so you can see how I’m going to torture these
two women to death slowly.”
“How dare you!”
“What am I afraid of now?” Howard said, and walked between Sharon and Kisa again. Only this time, he had a dagger in his hand. Gilbert tensed up and said coldly, “If you dare to hurt them, I will make sure you die a horrible death.”
But Howard just guffawed, unintimidated by anything. “I have nothing now, and I’m a wanted criminal. Do you think I’m afraid of death?” With that, he put the dagger across Kisa’s face and smiled hideously. “Which woman do you think would be better for me to start with?”
Gilbert was staring at the scene on the screen; the man who had never been the least bit flustered was finally nervous. He steadied his breathing and said as calmly as he could, “I will give you anything you want as long as you let them go.”
“I want nothing. I just want to get back at you, at the high and mighty people like you.” Saying that, he tapped the knife on Kisa’s face with an evil smile. “Tell me, which woman would you like to see bleed first?“
