"Leo? Do you really think that he can even notice this? If he could, he wouldn't have been fooled by you and your evil cousin for all these years!" Luke retorted sharply with a sneer, his eyes filled with contempt. He had already given Leo all the reports he had investigated the other day. Leo knew what happened to his late wife and who did it to her; still, he did nothing about it. On top of that, he had the nerve to attend the FX International Group's anniversary party with the vicious woman who had schemed to kill his ex-wife and tortured his daughter. It was obvious that he wasn't convinced by what Edward and Luke told him. Luke felt that Leo was so stupid and ignorant that he deserved to be set up, but Luke only felt sorry for his late wife, who was innocent the whole time. Luke wondered how Leo would react when he realized that Edward was telling the truth. To be honest, Luke usually had no interest in other people's personal lives, and he didn't like to gossip. However, he was triggered this time because they had hurt Edward's wife. He and Edward were like brothers; he cared about Edward, and so he consequently cared about everyone Edward loved.

"Who else would hold onto this after all these years? Just tell me who you are and what you want from me!" The feel of insecurity and uncertainty sent chills down Paul's spine. He was trembling all over in terror. This man had kept him captive for days. However, Paul didn't even know who the man was and what he was going to do to him.

"What I want is quite simple. I only want the truth from you. As for who we are, you'll find out when the time is right. Don't worry, we'll make sure that you'll never forget. Now, just shut up and behave. You've escaped the rule of law once, but you won't get away with it again this time."

Since Edward was injured and unconscious in hospital, Luke had to postpone a lot of things that needed his instructions and permission to carry on. Edward didn't tell Luke how to deal with Paul after he confessed, therefore Luke wouldn't dare to do anything to him yet. Luckily for Paul, he could still enjoy his last few days away from jail before Edward woke up. They had recorded his confession, which was enough for them to send Paul behind bars. The only problem left was how to make Yakira confess her evil deeds.

"Man, please. I know I've done something really wrong, and I shouldn't have done that. But I've told you everything I know. So please! Please just let me go. I'll go. I'll leave at once! Go abroad and never co

e he had left his own car in the suburbs last night. Edward was injured, so Luke went to the hospital with him and Daisy in the Armored Fighting Vehicle. Luke wondered whether Kevin had brought his car back. He also wondered whether the necklace Daisy had bought last night was still in the car. It wasn't just some ordinary piece of jewelry. It was said that it once belonged to a noble lady of the Qing dynasty. Although Luke couldn't tell why, he could sense that the necklace was somehow very important to Daisy, otherwise she wouldn't gaze at it as if it was a long lost family heirloom, and Edward wouldn't have spent a fortune to buy it for her.

Time slowly went by, and it was already noon when Daisy woke up. She had slept soundly, perhaps it was because she was too tired, both physically and mentally. When she opened her eyes, she was still in a daze for a second or two. She blanked out for a short while, not knowing where she was or why she was there. She took a deep breath and blinked for a few times, her long eyelashes slightly quivering. As she saw Edward lying on the bed next to her, Daisy's heart stopped for a second and she suddenly remembered everything. Memories immediately flooded into her mind. The fight, the gunshot, the blood oozing from his chest.

What happened last night kept playing on a loop inside her mind. Daisy shook her head and made sure that she wasn't in a dream. Frightened, she reached for Edward's palm. She eagerly wrapped her hands around his palm and even put his palm over her pale face. When she felt the warm and soft touch of his skin, Daisy finally felt relieved. As long as Edward was still alive, everything else wouldn't matter.
