About ten or more fully suited men in black marched in with sunglasses on.
They looked formidable and intimidating.
After they had entered, they split themselves into two rows immediately, as if they were waiting to welcome a certain VIP.
The government officer who was interrogating Sean Lennon frowned and barked.
“Who are you?”
A huff was heard from outside the door.
Immediately, a crisp clack sound of high heels walking on the ground was heard before anyone could be seen.
An about–thirty–year–old lady walked in from the outside.
She wore lots of jewelry and was donned in luxurious branded articles of clothing.
Her style was also on the more provocative side as she sported a deep V top, looking extremely
“Madam Yates? You’re here too?”
The government officer asked.
“Hah! My husband was cruelly murdered. Of course I’d want to see who the murderer is!”
Joey Yates huffed coldly once more, arrogance evident on her face.
Sean glanced at Joey and instantly understood what was going on.
This woman should be Charles Christian’s woman.
Even though Charles was dead, Sean did not see an ounce of sorrow or sadness on her face.
The government officer paused, and then explained.
“Madam Yates, I’m still in the middle of an interrogation.”
He looked like he was going to follow protocol to the letter.
“He killed Charles?”
Joey’s eyes swept around and saw Sean seated in his wheelchair.
“According to an eyewitness, he was seen leaving Excel Casino last night.
“The time when he left was exactly Charles‘ time of death.”
The government officer nodded and barked out an order towards the outside.
Right after that, two employees brought a young man in.
Sean recognized him instantly when he glanced at him.
This was the young man that was waiting outside of Excel Casino yesterday. The exact same young man that was briefly acquainted with him.
Sean did not see any sense of nervousness on this young man’s face.
“Someone saw us talking…”
When the young man saw Sean, a cloud of guilt appeared on his face.
There was evident proof that was placed before him, forcing him to rat Sean out.
“What nonsense? Sit down!”
The person beside him roared as he pressed the young man into the chair.
“You killed my man!
“I’ll pummel you to death!”
Abruptly, Joey shot up in a frenzy as she pounced at Sean.
“Calm down, Madam Yates…”
The two government employees half–heartedly pulled Joey back before releasing her immediately.
Joey was relentless as she pounced at Sean with her hand high up in the air, wanting to slap
A resounding slap rang in the room.
Before anyone could react, everyone saw Joey stumbling back uncontrollably.
Joey fell onto the ground, her deep V of a blouse jiggled and moved, exposing some things that were not meant to be seen.
However, no one paid any attention to that, since they were all staring at Joey’s face.
There was an increasingly clear handprint emerging on the left side of her face.
Everyone in the room had their eyes bulged out in shock.
Wasn’t Joey the one that was about to slap Sean?
Why was the handprint on Joey’s face instead?
Did this cripple…
As the crowd turned their heads in confusion, they managed to catch Sean as he slowly retracted his hand and tidied up his sleeve.
“In my eyes, there’s no such thing as male or female.
“If women were the ones who were looking for trouble, I’ll slap them with no mercy shown.”
Sean’s voice was cold and aloof.
“You! How dare you slap me!
“I’ll make sure you die! I’ll make sure you die!”
After being stunned on the ground for a while, Joey finally came back to her senses as she cradled her cheek and yelled pointedly at Sean.
“Attack! Finish him!”
At the sound of Joey’s order, ten or more burly men in black marched forward.
“Don’t move! Madam Yates, calm down!
“You can’t do things this way!”
A middle–aged man helped Joey up as he signaled at her with his eyes.
This place was still a government facility, so they could not do things so brazenly.
However, since they have made it to this place, did they not already have the final say?
Citizens were no match for the rich, but the rich would not offend the ones with power.
With an ordinary citizen like Sean Lennon, all they had to do was wiggle their fingers and they could send him down the fiery pits of hell!
Joey gritted her teeth as she slowly got up.
“A mere cripple! I’ll stand here and watch how you’d die!”
Joey huffed once again as she took a seat at the side.
Sean Lennon with no background support was a mere gnat. Even if he had background support, so what?
No one was clearer than Joey on how vast Charles‘ networking was and how far it had come throughout the years.
Even if Charles was not around, all she had to do was to pay a little sum of money, and these people would trip over themselves to help her!
That was why she was waiting to see how Sean would be tormented to death.
“Spit it out.
“I still have to pick my wife up from work.
Sean’s face was calm as he glanced at the clock.
A cruel smile appeared on Joey’s face.
Sean would never be able to pick his wife up again in this life!
In Joey’s heart, Sean was already dead, since she had already prepared a hundred thousand ways for him to die.
How dare he slap her?
Did he really not know how what it means to die?
