In J City.
CZ Community, Edith’s house, in the living room.
The atmosphere was a little serious. Nicholas and Jennifer sat on the sofa and said nothing.
Conor, Charles, Morgan and the others all stood on the side with gloomy faces, silent.
Lily curled up on the chair next to her, she was already crying. There were two clear tear streaks on her face, and her beautiful big eyes were already swollen from crying.
“Let’s not be so pessimistic for the time being. That person said that Scott and their young lady rushed down the cliff and were not killed directly. Now no one knows whether they are alive or dead. Scott has always been blessed, may he is alive.”
Conor saw that the atmosphere in the living room was so dignified that he was about to suffocate, and he said something first.
“Scott will never die. He hasn’t watched me chase his son, how could he die like this?” Lily shouted hoarsely.
Although her words sounded like a joke, no one could laugh at this moment.
At this moment Edith was lying on the bed in the bedroom, her face was pale, her eyes were staring straight at the ceiling, and she was thinking of scene after scene that happened to her in the past with Scott.
The bed sheet on her head had been soaked with tears, but Edith was lying motionless here as if she had lost consciousness, like a dead body.
It had been two days since she returned from Moon Island. That night, the man from the the Thompson family found Edith and explained the reason. After Edith fainted, she was sent back to J City by boat overnight.
On the way back, the person from the Thompson family had already sent a letter to the Thompson family, asking them to come to the Moon Island to search for Scott and Annabel. However, the whereabouts of the two people are still unknown.
After Edith returned to J City, the first thing she did when she woke up was to ask Charles and Conor to send someone to Moon Island and do the same thing as the Thompson family.
However, the cliff where Scott and Annabel fell down stretched for several kilometers. Under the cliff was the deep sea, and there was no diving beach for people to stop. The people from Conor and the Thompson family searched for two days and two nights, but didn’t find any clue.
In the deep sea, there were countless kinds of fishes, among which there were fishes that eat carrion. The local fishermen judged that the Scott and Annabel had probably been eaten by the big fishes, so they couldn’t find any clues.
There were also some people who fell off a cliff on the island. Anyone that fell from a cliff had never been successfully retrieved once.
This news was undoubtedly devastating for Edith and all those connected with Scott. Most people had to accept this fact, but only a few people were unwilling to believe it and firmly believed that Scott was still alive.
The news was still being blocked. On the surface of J City, it was still calm, and many people would still talk about Scott’s deeds when chatting.
After a long time, Edith sat up from the bed and wiped her tears with her hands.
If it was before, she might just let herself cry and forget everything and immersed in sadness, but now she was pregnant, she must consider the child in her belly.
And Edith also firmly believed that Scott couldn’t die so easily. He had promised her that he would protect her forever.
So now she must cheer up. Scott’s disappearance must not be kept for long, and most people would not think that Scott was just missing like her. If the outside world confirmed that Scott was dead, whether it was for the Davies family or TY Group and all corporate forces that had a relationship with Scott would face an immeasurable disaster.
These were Scott’s lands. Now Scott was not there. As his wife, Edith was obliged to fight for Scott. At the very least, she couldn’t let the Davies family fall.
And blindly sadness would only make her body worse, for her and Scott’s child, she couldn’t continue to immerse herself in the sadness willfully.
Edith stood up, took a deep breath, reached out to touch her stomach, and walked out of the room.
The door opened, and everyone’s eyes fell on Edith.
Between Edith’s eyebrows, there was more tenacity and inexplicable persistence than usual.
“From today, I will be responsible for all the affairs of the Davies family until Scott returns safely!”
Guanling, Huxin Island.
Terence was sitting at his desk, working with a thick stack of documents.
At this time, a person rushed in from the outside in a hurry and knelt directly in front of Terence on one knee.
“What’s the matter? Why are you panicked?” Terence raised his head and glanced at the man.
“My lord, I just got the news, Lord Scott… Lord Scott was attacked on Moon Island and fell from a hundred-meter cliff. His life is still uncertain and his whereabouts are unknown. And missing with Lord Scott is the young lady from Thompson family. The clues from the investigation infer that this incident is likely to be the work of Theodore, the eldest master of the Turner family who learned from Grandmaster Myles,” the person said with a trembling voice.
After Terence heard the man’s words, he slapped a palm on the table, and the table shattered in an instant, and documents were flying all over the room.
“What are you talking about! My son is missing?” Terence’s ferocity suddenly erupted, and the man was so frightened that he fell on his knees with both legs.
“Yes…, and based on the height of the cliff, Lord Scott may already…”
Before he finished speaking, Terence had already punched the wall, and a big hole appeared on the wall immediately, and the cracks spread around it like a spider web.
“Theodore! Damn, what a Theodore, if something terrible really happens to my son this time, even at the risk of offending Grandmaster, I will kill you myself! However, thinking that he could not leave Guanling, Terence felt a sense of powerlessness in his heart.
In recent years, in terms of business, Guanling had surpassed most of the top families. For families like the Cunningham family, it was a piece of cake to destroy them. The Turner family was at most one level better than the Cunningham family. But for so many years, Terence had not destroyed the Turner family.
There were two reasons for this, one was that Terence could not leave Guanling, and the other was that there was a Grandmaster behind the Turner family.
The power of a Grandmaster had exceeded people’s inherent imagination. A Grandmaster could contend with an army. The Grandmaster could kill anyone they want. Angering a Grandmaster, even with the most powerful commercial power, the Grandmaster could kill your entire family.
And unless with the help of a Grandmaster of the same strength, no one could catch a powerful Grandmaster, let alone use the law to sanction it.
To reach this state was already beyond the shackles of secular society.
“Mobilize all the forces deployed by Guanling, look for the whereabouts of my son at all costs, and secretly infiltrate all the commercial forces of the Turner family. If my son is really gone, I will never let go of the people from the Turner family.”
“In addition, allocate a part of the strength to go to J City to protect my son’s wife. She is pregnant. I don’t want the child in her stomach to be hurt again.”
After a long time, Terence ordered.
M Country, in a villa.
Sitting in front of an old man, Theodore slowly said, “Scott fell from a 100-meter cliff. Under the cliff is the deep sea. There is absolutely no possibility of survival. I have completed the task you gave me.”
The old man laughed immediately and said, “You deserve to be my most proud grandson. Scott is dead. Has the Davies family ever been removed?”
“The rest are just mobs. I don’t have the energy to play with them. If you want to get rid of it, send someone by yourself.” Theodore’s tone was ordinary, and he didn’t have the slightest respect for the old man in front of him.
“By the way, call the principals of the four major families, it’s time for the Turner family to take another step.”
