What was going on?!
Could it be that Damian Wool did not come to support Joey Yates?
Why did he look so appalled when he saw Sean Lennon being the blatant target?
“A helpless disabled
“How could he kill anyone?
“Isn’t this ridiculous?”
As Damian finished his words slowly, he walked towards the outside of the office as well.
Mr. Schmidt looked like he got electrocuted.
One would listen to the rhythm of the drums when a drumbeat was heard, like so, one should listen to the tone of a sentence when the sentence was spoken.
Real VIPs would never spell things out clearly due to the sensitivity of their position.
All they would do was… tell you half of it.
Whether the recipient could fully interpret the entire meaning and understand the underlying messages would depend on said recipient’s ability to read in between the lines.
What Damian had said was to obviously hint at Mr. Schmidt!
In Mr. Schmidt’s heart, he was utterly astonished, but his mind was crystal clear!
Damian Wool had come for… Sean Lennon?
“Director Wool, what about a meal together?”
Mr. Schmidt could not care less about the near–fatal amount of shock he had just received as he cozied up to Damian.
“Do your job properly.
“Live properly as well.”
Without turning back, Damian spoke faintly.
The rest of his men had quickly left the scene.
Mr. Schmidt looked at Sean with a weighted expression on his face.
It seemed like this cripple who was before him was really something else!
“Haha, cripple, aren’t you just gonna be dead when I’m done with you?
“Mr. Schmidt, don’t hesitate any longer now. Lock him up right now!”
Joey crossed her arms in front of her as she sneered.
According to the level of her IQ, it was beyond her capabilities to read the room properly. Mr. Schmidt looked pointedly at Sean and turned to Joey and said, “What are you talking about, Madam Yates?
“The government has always done things fair and squarely. Sean Lennon is innocent, so why should I lock him up?”
As soon as he was done speaking, Joey stared bewilderedly at him.
This was not what Mr. Schmidt had said when he had previously conversed with her!
Why was he like he had been replaced by another person now?
At the side, Hayden Luke narrowed his eyes. As someone who had been in the political world for quite a long time, he was equipped with a certain level of wits and understandings.
What Damian had said seemed like a passing comment.
In reality, in situations like these, it was practically a banner informing Mr. Schmidt that Damian was there solely to support Sean Lennon!
Hayden had no idea that Sean was acquainted with Damian Wool.
To even have Damian be physically present just to support him!
This… This was terrifying!
Hayden’s mind swirled like a tornado.
Initially, he was only acquainted with Sean because of his ability to heal.
In his heart, he still felt like Sean was not in an equal level of existence as himself.
Now, he finally understood. Sean and himself were indeed existing on different planes of existence…
…because Sean was way more powerful than he was!
“S-Sean Lennon, this was our negligence.
“You can go now.”
Mr. Schmidt looked at Sean and tried to feign calmness, but he could not help it. He was still a little too polite.
For someone who had Damian’s word to protect. How could Mr. Schmidt dilly–dally for even a second?
“What nonsense is this, Mr. Schmidt?”
Joey was extremely unhappy when she heard this.
Did Charles just die in vain?
Did she get slapped for nothing just now as well?
“Sean Lennon is none other than a disabled person. Under circumstances where he was barehandedly helpless, it’s impossible that he could kill anybody.
“Bodyguards of the late Charles was obviously swearing that black was white just to defame. others.
“In my opinion, it’s time we really investigate those that were with the late Charles.”
Mr. Schmidt had announced his views in such a dutiful, righteous manner.
Joey, on the other hand, was dumbfounded.
No matter how dumb she was, she was able to tell that the situation at hand was not as simple.
For Mr. Schmidt to have a sudden change of attitude, there must be another underlying reason.
This was why Joey chose to stay silent after pondering and hesitating.
“Sean Lennon, it’s our fault that we did not investigate properly before bringing you in.
“This is my negligence, and I sincerely apologize to you.”
Mr. Schmidt turned his head once more and softened his tone.
“What about Mr. Schmidt just locking me up then?
“Since I’m still a suspect.”
However, as Sean spoke, a glimpse of mockery flashed before his face.
Mr. Schmidt’s eyes were bulged open, his heart rate was slowly increasing.
It was easy to invite someone in but it was the most difficult to ask them to take their leave!
Sean was clearly… Unhappy!
In the very next second, the honorific address from Mr. Schmidt had just completely blew Joey’s mind once more.
Even though Mr. Schmidt was incomparable to Damian Wool in terms of ranking and status, he was still the person in charge around here, which meant that his status and position were the highest around here.
And now, he was actually addressing a suspect, Sean Lennon respectfully?
What joke was he on about?
Mr. Schmidt had no time to take other people’s thoughts into account.
If this issue was not settled properly, it would be extremely difficult for him to sleep and eat properly from then on.
It was normal human behavior to feel lost and afraid when faced with future unknowns.
As for Sean’s identity, it was like playing a game of tag in a huge fog. Mr. Schmidt was certainly unwilling to take his guesses lightly!
The more he tried to speculate, the more uncomfortable he felt in his heart.
“You’re indeed innocent, Mr. Lennon.
“That’s why it’s time for you to go.”
Mr. Schmidt lowered his head down a little, his tone drooping with a tinge of pleading.
He did not want to think of anything right now. All his mind was occupied with was so that this human statue of a god would be sent away. This was the only way he could experience
“I don’t think I should go for this, in the case when it was just one day and I’ll have to be
asked to come back, how much hassle would it be?”
Sean waved his hands and said casually.
