That afternoon, Edith and Lily made an appointment to go shopping. Edith went to the room and took a look at Scott. Seeing that Scott was busy changing Sherry’s diaper, she suddenly laughed out loud.
Hearing Edith’s laughter, Scott turned his head to look at her, and said, “Honey, come and help me. This little girl is too disobedient. I can’t deal with her at all.”
Edith laughed, “I have made an appointment with Lily to go shopping together. The time is coming soon. I have to go out quickly.
Think of a solution for yourself. Believe in yourself. You can do it!”
After speaking, Edith turned and left the room.
Scott looked helpless. After Edith left, he secretly called Jennifer over and asked Jennifer to help him change Sherry’s diaper.
After Edith went out of the door, she walked towards the place she had made appointment with Lily.
Because the Davies House was located at the most central part of B City and was very close to those commercial centers, Edith could walk to the shopping mall.
When Edith went out, she didn’t notice that a figure in a black robe flashed past the corner of the Davies House.
At home, Scott was basking in the yard with Sherry. At this time, his mobile phone rang. He took a look and found that it was Lily’s call.
After the call was connected, Lily’s voice came over there.
“Brother, did Edith go out? I’ve been waiting here for a long time. Why hasn’t she arrived yet? No one answered my phone calls.” Scott was taken aback for a moment and then said, “She already left the house more than half an hour ago. Logically, even she walked, she should have arrived.”
“But I didn’t see her. I can’t get through her phone. Or can you make a call to her?” Lily said.
Scott said Okay. Then he hurriedly dialed Edith’s phone number. But after a long time, no one answered.
Scott suddenly felt a sense of anxiety. He hurriedly let Jennifer come over and asked her to take care of Sherry, while he himself hurriedly found Brady and asked him if there was anything happening near the Davies House
Brady said that he had not received any notice from his subordinates. So nothing happened.
Scott was anxious and called Edith a few times again, but no one answered him. He intuitively felt that something happened to Edith. The person who followed Edith was at least a Grandmaster, otherwise he could not have escaped the surveillance of Yin Killers.
Because the affairs of the five major families had just ended, Scott felt that even if those men wanted revenge, they would definitely not come recently. Therefore, during this period of time, the vigilance of the Davies House was a little lax. Ellis and Hughes were just staying in the Davies House, and would not go out with Edith.
Scott immediately asked Brady to arrange Yin Killers to thoroughly investigate all the places near the Davies House. Edith only went out for more than half an hour. Even if she was really caught, she would definitely not leave too far.
Just when Scott was anxious, his mobile phone rang again. When he picked it up to have a look, it was Edith’s call.
He hurriedly picked up. What came from there was not Edith’s voice, but a low male voice.
“Scott, you should be very anxious that you can’t contact you wife, right?”
“Who are you? Where is my wife now?” Scott asked in a cold voice.
“You don’t need to know who I am, but your wife is indeed in my hands. If you still want your wife to be alive, you’d better rush to the suburbs of B City within half an hour. I will give you a location. Remember, come alone. If there are others, I will stab your wife. I will definitely do what I say.” The low voice sounded again.
Scott frowned. Although he didn’t know what the other party’s purpose was, he still agreed to that person’s request for Edith’s safety.
It didn’t matter whether he went there alone. Now Scott himself was enough to resist a troop.
After hanging up the phone for a while, Scott received a location on his mobile phone. Scott took a look and determined that it was the emptiest place in the suburbs of B City. He could know the situation in a few kilometers at a glance.
The person set the location there, presumably to prevent Scott from arranging others around there in advance.
Scott did not hesitate. After knowing the specific location, he immediately drove a car quickly towards the suburbs of B City.
About half an hour later, Scott rushed to that place. From long distance, Scott saw two figures on the lawn over there. One of them was Edith, and the other was a person wearing a black robe. Scott couldn’t see his face clearly.
Scott parked the car a few hundred meters away from the two of them, then got out of the car and walked towards the two of them.
When Scott was in front of the two, he saw Edith standing there without a rope tied to her body, but he could see that she was very scared. Scott did not dare to act rashly.
If Scott shot directly, he was confident to snatch Edith over before the black-robed man could react.
But the other party must know Scott’s strength. Even so, the other party was still so relaxed, which showed he had a certain degree of confidences.
So Scott didn’t dare to take actions at will now.
Looking at Scott in front of him, the black-robed man made a laugh, and then said, “I didn’t expect you to come so soon. It seems that your wife is so important to you.”
Scott snorted coldly, “No matter what your purpose is, you’d better let my wife go. Otherwise, I will let you die miserably.”
The black-robed man did not take Scott’s words to heart at all. Instead, he said with a smile, “Don’t say such words to threaten me. Tell you, your wife has eaten the poison pill I refined. Only I know the way to detoxify. I know you are powerful. Even if you attack me now, I can’t resist you at all. But if you do it, no one can cure your wife’s poison.”
Scott’s face was immediately full of anger. No wonder this black-robed man was so confident. It turned out that Edith had already taken poison pills.
“Who are you? I have no grudges with you. Why do you hurt my wife? What do you want from me?” The black-robed man suddenly laughed, then looked at Scott and said gloomily, “Yes, I do want to get something from you.” “What?” Scott asked.
“Your life!” The black-robed man said without hesitation.
