Chapter 165 Avon returned to looking for Charlotte and Kory, hurrying with the search after assuming Charlotte succeeded in throwing Kory out of the house since the shouting died down. He felt a different aura around Finn, but could not afford looking into it as he’s busy with stopping Charlotte. He strolled down the stairs, arriving at the mansion’s frontal exit to see nothing but two of his guards standing there on random lookout. Kory and Charlotte were nowhere to be found. Avon moved closer to the guards, minding to question about Kory. “Have any of you seen Kory or Charlotte?” His voice questioned, immediately gaining their attention. Their head fell low in an instant, “No, General. We took post not too long, we have no idea where they could be.” The one of the left lipped a response. Avon sighed turning around and returning back upstairs. His gut kicked in, telling him something strange is going on. He wasn’t certain, but something just doesn’t feel right. While ascendin
Chapter 164Lorraine stood up from the position she was squatted to. Avon already went after Charlotte like he said. He could hear Kory’s voice shouting meters away and Charlotte trying to shut her up. “You’re not getting away with this, whatever it is that you just did to me. Give me back my body you piece of a useless shit!” She heard Kory’s voice yelling at Charlotte. “Fine bitch.” Charlotte said and that was the end of their shouting. Avon hastened his footsteps rushing to the direction he heard then shouting from only to see they were gone. Still looking around for them his eyes landed on Finn who creeped out from nowhere standing behind him. Avon almost jerked, “Finn.” He called a little weird out by his sudden appearance. “Where were you? How did you? It doesn’t matter, when you did you come back?” Avon took some steps backwards before inquiring. Finn smirked, a dark edgy one that has Avon squinting his gaze at him. “I came in not too long, I was looking for you.” He r
Chapter 164Faye walked in on the strange man rummaging for God knows what in her grandfather’s drawer. “Who are you and what are you looking for?” She asked, announcing her presence with her gaze sizing the man up trying to read his appearance. The man looked up from where he was, becoming aware of Faye’s presence as he brought up his hand that held a gun in it. Corking the object he pointed it straight at her head. “Hands up bitch!” He instructed, his finger tugging close to the trigger. Faye exclaimed with her expression as her lips parted in shock. Molten saliva liquid gulped down her throat as she slowly obliged to the man’s instruction. “You’re not gonna scream and you’re gonna come in further.” He beckoned with the gun, Faye had no choice than to step in further approaching him where he stood. “What is your name beautiful? Perhaps you can lead me to who I’m suppose to kill. I’m here for Charlotte Hales, and Oscar Hales.” Faye kept her ears attentive, arriving at the fron

Chapter 162Avon and Lorraine left the kitchen to go check on Kory to see if she’s packing her things and leaving like they wanted. Arriving at the hallway they met Oscar who had on a forlorn expression and seated on the floor with his back rested on the wall. Lorraine signaled for Avon to go on and check without him while she approached Oscar to ask what was going on with him. His daughter is now fine, she’s very sure of it because it was her husband who healed her and made sure of that. So she wondered in her head on what could have brought him back to expressing quite a wide shade of sadness on his face. Avon didn’t went on like Lorraine had say, instead took a spot and stood there waiting for her.Lorraine got to Oscar as she stooped to his position. “Uncle what’s wrong?” She asked in a tone laced with empathy. Her palm reaching out to soothe his shoulder with some pats. “Nothing is going to happen to Faye again, she’s really fine now. Don’t bother yourself much about her, s
Chapter 161Faye arrived at the Hales’ Villa going straight in search of her uncles. Oblivious to the situation that Royce is admitted and Vance is dead. The house was uncannily empty with counted souls moving around scantily. She went up to Royce’s room, it was empty and he wasn’t inside, the same thing when he arrived at Vance’s room. She wondered where the both went to. Faye came out of Vance’s room going straight to Lennox’s room, he also wasn’t in his room. Seeing no one to question about the solitude of the house, she retreated going back downstairs where she would come across some maids to question about where everyone is. Arriving back downstairs and walking past the lobby that leads to the kitchen, the big door opened with a familiar face coming inside. She was on a wheelchair with a man behind her, the familiar face belonging to Abigail. “Oh hey Faye, what are you doing here?” She asked the moment both gazes landed on each other. It was hazy in Faye’s head, the perple
Continuation from the last episode. “Yeah.” He concurred standing up so both could be on their way to Royce. “But what if he is not the one? What if it is somebody else?” He asked keeping his eyes on his face as both turned around to walk down the passage that leads to their uncle’s room. “Who else could it be? They’ve planned to kill him, and if anything doesn’t lead to his suspicion it was yesterday at the same party when he announced himself as the Dragon General. That speech he gave simply said he is not the one to take things lightly. My father and his uncles came for him so he decide to take them out. That’s just my theory though, we should wait and hear from Uncle Royce what actually happened in that room. I also notice something strange.” Aiden was left curious hearing the last sentence of his words. “What did you notice?” He asked with his brows furrowed. “You know I told the maids not to clean up Dad’s murder scene, it wasn’t to call the cops but it was for me to inspec
Chapter 158Aidan brought down the phone from his ear ending the call with Oscar. He had called to phone him about his father’s death when he made a new discovery. Aidan went back to the room where his brother was, he tapped on his shoulder the moment he got to him calling for his attention. His head was buried in his knees as he sobbed quietly sitting on the chair. Grandfather was laid still on the bed with his eyes concealed under his lashes. “We need to talk.” His said, stretching out a palm for him to grab. “What is it? Look I’m very much okay with myself crying like this, I don’t need your stupid concern or console-““Shut the fuck up and come with me. This is more important than the stupid tears you’re shedding.” Aidan leaned grabbing his wrist anyways and pulling him on to his feet, he dragged the both of them out of the room.He took them to the passage where a bench was available as he sat the both of them down on it.“I really don’t think dad was murdered by an assassin.
