"Mom...why do you insist on being so stubborn? You really must come to your senses," said Sue pleadingly. Filled with such disbelief at her mother's apparent loss of morals, Sue was fed up with her mother's foolishness, especially when it came to her brother Allen and his mischievous antics. She sighed as she continued, "Allen has killed someone. He has commited a very serious crime and he's as guilty as sin. You are aware of that, right? Do you still think he is justified for doing what he did? Are you seriously still considering covering up for him in this critical moment? If that's the case then you really are out of your mind. Who does that?!"

As she was speaking, Sue got a little agitated as she looked at Peggy. "Mom, look at you, do you have any idea what you have become now? Allen is a wanted criminal and you're going to run from the police with him. You are fugitives and you are bound to live a miserable life, in which you will always be running."

"Stop talking nonsense. You don't know anything," Peggy argued, vexed by Sue's remarks. She looked at Sue angrily. "He's my only son. If I don't help him, who will? Will you help him? And will you support my life, since you're married now and all? Huh? I suppose even if you do actually agree to support me, your family-in-law will not approve that at all."

With a sneer, Peggy continued speaking to Sue. "Yes, I admit that he is guilty of killing someone, but I also understand his reasons. As a man, how could he tolerate his wife cheating on him. If it were me, I would have done the same thing. A whore like Doris doesn't deserve our pity. As I've said, your brother is completely not at fault. You should try to understand where he was coming from as well. He's completely justified for killing her. That slut had only herself to blame. What did she think was going to happen? She got exactly what she deserved."

"Mom, do you have any idea what you are saying? I don't understand you at all. Killing a person is a huge crime. You can not just play down its magnitude. Allen should admit his guilt, if not, you should turn him in. If you don't, you're just as guilty as he is!" Sue grumbled with discontent as she threw up her hands, unsure of what to say to change her mothers mind.

Soon after that, She stopped talking, realizing that she might have just been wasting her breath because neither of them was listening to her. The tension was so thick that you could cut it with a knife.

Peggy, seemingly annoyed, barked, "I asked you not to accuse your brother anymore. Didn't you hear me?" Sue snapped back, "But I'm not accusing him. We already know that he did it. I'm just stating facts." Hearing this, Peggy was even more furious and shouted, "It was all caused by that bitch. Allen gave her everything that she wanted and satisfied all of her needs, but in the end, she betraye

crime for you."

She lowered down her head and murmured, "Besides, Anthony will not allow me to do so..."

"He is your husband. He surely will accept your request if you talk to him," said Peggy hurriedly. "What's more, you are pregnant with his baby. He loves you and the baby, right? Of course he will listen to what you have to say."

"I won't talk to him about this. Not another word," Sue said, shaking her head. "I am going to call the police. I can't watch you go on making mistakes like this anymore. I am doing this for your own good."

Smack! Without saying anything, Allen lunged forward and slapped Sue in the face. It was so hard that Sue fell to the floor and her mobile phone dropped onto the floor.

"Sue, why are you so bitchy? Do you need me to show you how you are supposed to behave yourself?" Allen glared at Sue viciously and said, "I am telling you. If you do call the police now, I will definitely kill you. If you don't believe, go ahead. I will surely make you suffer, together with that baby in your tummy."

"What...what are you going to do?" Sue stammered. She was so scared that she covered her belly with her hands, sitting on the floor. Overwhelmed with a shudder of horror, she felt a drop of liquid on her lower abdomen. Her forehead was dripping with beads of sweat. "Don't hurt me or my baby..."

"Are you scared now? Not going to call the police anymore, are you?" Allen smirked and yelled at her, "Get the money and new IDs ready for me and mom as soon as possible, or else, you will not be able to see your baby born..."

His eyes were fixed on Sue's belly like a starving wolf, which freaked her out. The rage she saw made her extremely fearful.

At this time, Peggy stepped between them to stop Allen. She spoke to Allen, like a mother would. "Don't hurt her. She's pregnant now. It's not a joke. Plus, if you kill her, we definitely won't get any money."
