Noah naturally knew about Finnick’s methods in dealing with betrayers. Yet, this time, he merely kicked him three times.
All things said, he didn’t want Finnick to be too livid since it would affect his health adversely.
“Let this matter go, Finnick,” Vivian, who had been listening to them both at the side, blurted out of the blue.
Shocked, Noah’s head snapped up, and he stared at her. Likewise, Finnick also gaped at her in surprise.
He has betrayed me and caused us to be separated for five years! And you’re now asking me to let it go?
Finnick couldn’t quite understand why she would say such a thing.
Aware of his thoughts, Vivian explained her reasons to Finnick.
“Firstly, he’s your subordinate, and you failed to protect his parents. This is the first mistake. Secondly, he had a valid reason for doing so – his parents had been kidnapped. Anyone would panic were this to happen to them,” she surmised.
Although he had done something wrong, fortunately, his mistake wasn’t all that grievous. Besides, he still chose to reveal the truth in the end. That in itself proves that he deserves forgiveness.
“Alright, I’ll do as you say.” Despite feeling that her arguments made sense, Finnick felt that a betrayal was still betrayal, and it wasn’t excusable.
But for her sake, I’ll still take her feelings into consideration even if I’ve got to suppress my anger.
“Noah, you may continue staying by Finnick’s side. However, remember one thing – no matter what you do, stop while you’re ahead.” After saying this, Vivian pulled Finnick up and went upstairs to see how things were between Larry and Mrs. Booker.
Although they had left, Noah, who was left there, remained kneeling for a very long time. This time, he was truly impressed by Vivian’s magnanimity, and he harbored bone-deep respect toward her.
Now that I think back on how I had people kidnap Mrs. Norton and planned to kill her unborn baby, I myself think that I was truly too cruel! But since she’s not going to pursue the matter, I’ll be all the more dedicated to her and Mr. Norton in the future. I’ll prove to them that despite having made a mistake once, I certainly won’t do it a second time! I’ll definitely serve them wholeheartedly!
“Mr. Morrison.” Just when Benedict had arrived at the office, he caught sight of his assistant, who was calling out to him while standing by the entrance.
“What happened?” Benedict asked as he strode toward his office since he had no idea what was so important that could’ve happened early in the morning.
All the way to his office, he inclined his head in return to the employees who greeted him.
“Some police officers came to inquire about the kidnapping case three days ago.” The assistant had heard some rumors that were circulating out there, but he wasn’t sure about the entire incident.
Hence, he was rather panicked and didn’t know what to do when police officers came.
And that was why he asked Benedict to rush to the office early in the morning.
“Got it. It’s okay, I’ll handle it.” I’ve already notified the police when I found them, so I simply can’t figure out why they came.
The moment he stepped into his office, he was greeted by the sight of three police officers sitting before his table.
When the three police officers saw Benedict coming in, they stood up and bowed to him. Then, they started posing their questions.
“Nice to meet you, Mr. Morrison. We know that the kidnapping case a few days ago has been solved, but we have orders to find the kidnapper and arrest him,” the police officer in the lead declared, his voice filled with respect.
“Why are you still trying to arrest the kidnapper? I’ve already retracted the police report, so this has nothing to do with the police anymore, no?” Benedict asked since he had no inkling of their intentions.
“Well, Mr. Morrison, our chief wishes to extend his help after hearing that you’ve encountered a problem,” a police officer at the back swiftly answered.
As soon as his words fell, Benedict instantly knew why they had come to his office.
On the surface, they want to help me bring the kidnapper to justice, but in reality, they want to curry favor with my family. I heard that the current police chief is going to lose his power, so that’s the main reason they came this time.
He blinked as he contemplated how he should decline their help.
After all, this entire incident was a misunderstanding. It was merely a trick Larry played, and he couldn’t possibly send him to the police station personally to stand trial.
