The Divorced Billionaire Heiress - Chapter 2122
Chapter 2122 You’re No Different From Them
Nicole looked at Clayton expectantly.
“Isn’t that suspicious?” Clayton stroked her hair and shook his head helplessly.
“You’re just being paranoid. It happened over a month ago.Who would’ve thought Lance would be hospitalized here?” Nicole
pouted and was speechless.
On the way back, Clayton’s idea made Nicole feel slightly better.
Nicole smiled. She was really apprehensive lately because of what happened with Yvette.
Mrs.Quimbey was a strong career woman, yet she put aside all her work and cooperated with the police’s investigation.
However, there was still no result.
There was still no hint of what the perpetrators’ motives were.
As of the third day after Yvette went missing and Lance was hospitalized, they still did not make any progress.
Clayton was unwilling to delve into this matter, nor did he want Nicole to dig deeper into it.
The main reason was that Clayton had already noticed this matter involved the underground drug trade.
Clayton did not want to touch this area, especially not for Yvette, because she was not worth the risk.He just wanted to be
together with Nicole in peace.
However, Nicole was too nice to Yvette, so Clayton could not stay out of it completely.
Clayton would still do according to Nicole’s wishes sometimes.
Clayton had a feeling that the perpetrators were not after him and Nicole, so why should he meddle in this matter? Nicole did not
sleep well for two days.
At that moment, she leaned on Clayton’s shoulder and fell asleep.
Clayton sighed and instructed the driver in a low voice, “Drive slowly and steadily.”
Lance’s mother, Fiona, had already told Yvette’s mother what happened.
Mrs.Quimbey was watching the police’s movements while Fiona watched over Lance’s safety.
Fiona just went out to buy something, yet her son almost lost his life again.
This made her feel mentally exhausted.
Mrs.Quimbey rushed over when she heard what happened.
Fiona sat outside the emergency room and cried.
When she saw Mrs.Quimbey walking over, she wiped away her tears and said, “Didn’t I tell you that I’m fine? Why did you come
“How can I be at ease? Where’s the police? Don’t they have officers standing guard here? How could this happen?” Fiona
sighed and choked up.
“They said that the plainclothes officers were changing shifts and happened to spot a fugitive at that time, so they left their post.”
Mrs.Quimbey looked furious.
“That’s ridiculous! How could they not leave someone behind to protect Lance?!” Fiona took her friend’s hand.
“Forget it The doctor came out earlier and said they managed to save Lance. If they found out any later, the lack of oxygen to the
brain would make Lance paralyzed.”
Mrs.Quimbey had a complex and anxious expression.
“I don’t know what kind of people that brat offended! There’s been no news from her. If you hadn’t gone over to visit them on New
No one would know if Lance died at home.Fiona was heartbroken.She sighed and persuaded Mrs.Quimbey.
“Although Yvette has a flamboyant personality, she’s just a bubbly person and not a troublemaker.She doesn’t have anything to
do with Lance’s incident.She’s also a victim, and her whereabouts are still unknown, so stop scolding her!”
Mrs.Quimbey looked grateful and guilty.
“I feel sorry for you guys that she married Lance.”
“What are you talking about? I really like Yvette.She’s not pretentious, and I can see how hard she works.Lance and Yvette plan
to spend the rest of their lives together.Now, the most important thing is to find Yvette.I hope nothing happened to her.”
Mrs.Quimbey also nodded worriedly.
Yvette was taken back to that villa.
Sean brought her in with a grim expression. The thin man behind Sean was indignant.
“This woman delayed today’s trade! The old master will be angry.”
Tate shot Lex a warning look, and Lex shut up instantly because he worried about the outsiders present.Sean stared at Yvette,
who was thrown on the sofa.
Melissa, who was fully clothed and sitting on the sofa, sobbed in grievance.
When she saw them, she immediately stood up.
“You guys are back!”
Sean ignored Melissa and only stared at Yvette as he suppressed the anger in his heart.
“you’re really something, huh? You actually went to the hospital to check if your husband is dead? Didn’t I warn you that you
have to stay here obediently if you don’t want him to die?”
Yvette’s face was pale at first, but she gradually eased her emotions.Her glimmering eyes looked very stubborn.
“Why shouldn’t I run? Who do you think you are? You’ve had an endless stream of women by your side after I got married. It’s not
like you haven’t slept with a woman or two in this villa. You even slept with the nanny, who used to be a college student. Why are
you pretending to be a victim when you’re the predator? Sean, I know who you are. You’re a drug dealer now and dabble in
money and sex trade. You kidnapped me only because you wanted to humiliate me like one of your prostitutes. You destroyed my
marriage and ruined everything for me. You probably want me to disappear from this world. This is how you find your own sense
of existence, right?!”
Yvette shouted at him in a fit of anger and was greeted with a fiery slap on the face.The villa was dead silent.
There seemed to be no sound at all.Yvette covered her ashen face and looked at him with indescribable hatred and disgust in
There was no longer any trace of warmth from when they were dating.He dared to hit a woman.
What a scumbag! Sean stood there with a glum face and clenched fists, but his stern eyes were looking at Melissa.
“You told her?” Sean yelled coldly, which made Melissa shudder in fear.
His eyes were bloodshot and scarlet as if he was going to eat someone.
Melissa stood there with a torn expression.Her lips turned white with fright.
“I… didn’t mean to.] just wanted to develop a good relationship with Ms.Quimbey.”
Sean’s eyes were filled with indescribable anger.It felt as if his mask was torn apart, and his ugliest side was exposed.He did not
Apart from the tears in Yvette’s lofty eyes, there was also disgust and hatred for him.It was as if she was looking at a rotten
corpse in a stinky ditch.
Sean was hurt by Yvette.He stared at Melissa indifferently and did not feel any pity for her.
“Get out of here now!”
Melissa looked at Tate and Lex for help in an attempt to ask them to speak for her. However, Lex did not dare to provoke Sean at
Even if Lex had no brains, he would not dare to stir trouble at this moment.
Tate sighed, looked at Melissa, and said, “Melissa, I’ll walk you out.”
Melissa looked regretful.She bit her lower lip and looked at Yvette again, then she wiped away her tears with shame and ran out.
Lex was also tactful enough to chase after Melissa.
The living room fell silent again.
Sean tried his best to suppress his anger.His eyes flickered when he saw the marks on Yvette’s face. However, the annoyance in
his eyes disappeared quickly.
“There’s nothing else I can say now that you know.I’m like this now and do all kinds of evil.Are you satisfied? Don’t think that I
won’t lay hands on you, Yvette.To me, you’re no different from those women!”
