Chapter 46 Don’t Regret It Later, Babe
Robert refused to believe Crystal’s words. “What about your parents? Are you just going to sit by and watch them go to jail?”
However, Grystal saw no point in explaining. Instead, she kept it vague. “I’m not going back to your villa anymore. I’ll send the key back to you.”
Robert could feel his heart lurch at her statement.
What made her suddenly change her mind? Before he could ask further, she ended the call.
Robert called his secretary, a shadow darkening his expression. “Find out how John Winters is doing lately.”
The secretary immediately did as she was instructed. Five minutes later, the secretary reported to him in a shaky voice, “Mr. Sloan, John has appointed a new lawyer. I’ll keep digging.”
“There’s no need.” With that, Robert ended the call.
He decided to pay a visit to the detention center. Who dares take the case without my permission? I’ll prove to them it’ll change nothing.
Robert quickly opened the car door and drove toward the detention center. The injury on his waist hadn’t healed and his movements only opened the wound, causing blood to redden his bandages. However, he paid no mind to it.
Twenty minutes later, he parked his car outside the detention center. Upon getting out of his car, he saw a stunning man walking out of the building with people surrounding him.
It was none other than Henry Miller.
The branded suit Henry wore made him look noble and unapproachable.
The group was descending the stairs as the executives around Henry humbly talked to him.
Jamie was present as well. She smiled at the rest. “It seems like we must part here. I appreciate everyone’s effort in this case.”
The others smiled upon hearing that.
After all, they were dealing with a Miller. They had to show him a certain amount of respect.
Henry kept a polite distance as he shook hands with them to bid farewell. After he turned on his heel to leave, the group exchanged a smile. One of them began, “We have finally met the tyrant of the lawyer industry. He is indeed a miracle!”
The others agreed with him.
Henry was handsome, wealthy, and influential. That made him the subject of envy for many.
Robert clenched his fists as he watched the scene unfold.
So, it’s Henry who took the case!
Chapter 46 Don’t Regret It Later, Babe
Robert deliberately chose to strike when Henry wasn’t around Barnwood. He didn’t expect Henry to return earlier than planned. Henry shouldn’t have cared about Crystal. She’s just a plaything to him!
Robert hated this feeling.
He watched Henry, the chosen one, walking over to him.
To his surprise, Henry only patted him on the shoulder with a small smile, looking as if nothing happened. “Melora told me you’re injured and I was just about to visit you. Now that you’re here, I’m glad to see you’re all right. By the way, I’ll see you at home for lunch later.”
Robert nodded with a blank expression.
Henry chuckled and lit a cigarette. He slowly took a drag from it before walking toward his car.
He brushed past Robert on his way.
All Robert could feel was overwhelming pressure from Henry when the latter walked away. Throughout their interaction, Robert did not bring up Crystal at all.
However, he didn’t need to ask. He was confident that Crystal had submitted to Henry.
Once Henry’s car drove out of view, Robert took out his phone with a blank face and dialed Crystal’s number.
He gritted his teeth when the call was connected. “I know what you did, Crystal.”
On the other side of the line, Crystal calmly answered, “I don’t see a problem, Robert. It’s merely an eye for an eye.”
“Good for you, then! There’s no problem at all!” Robert sneered. “However, don’t regret it later, babe.”
Crystal hung up on him without a word.
At that moment, her phone buzzed. She checked it and found a new message from Henry. ‘Mr. Winters has been transferred to Genesis Hospital. You and Mrs. Winters should visit him later. He can return home once he’s better.
Crystal read the message longer than she should have until tears clouded her vision.
At that moment, she finally felt alive again for the first time.
