Chapter 276 Risk
Liam’s eyes widened even more when he confirmed that it was indeed Reginald’s arrangement. “Dad, when did you arrange it? Why didn’t you tell me?”
Reginald said gravely, Finnegan holds the South-North Badge of the Martial Arts Alliance, and has the support of the Wahlstrom and Langdon families. His background must be influential. Therefore, the fewer people who know about the plan to kill him, the better. Otherwise, even if Finnegan is killed, it will cause a huge mess!”
So when Reginald asked Bennett for help, he didn’t even tell Mike about it.
Now that the Wright family had stepped in, it confirms his initial guess that Finnegan had an extended network of connections.
Liam asked, “What do we do now? Your hired men obviously went into hiding after the failed attempt. Otherwise, the Wright family wouldn’t have imposed martial law in Jadeborough to investigate!”
“Don’t worry, with that person’s skills, they won’t be found easily,” Reginald replied confidently. “However, it’s always better to be safe than sorry, so we should still make some preparations just in case.”
Mike nodded. “Dad, tell me what to do.”
“All our efforts had been leading to this moment. Get in touch with Bryn Sutton to lead the Sable family’s elite forces here. Starting tonight, we will strengthen the defense of the Sable family’s garden. Keep a close. watch on the people from the Military Department and the Military Department. Find that person and silence him before they do, to prevent any mishaps. Finally…
At this point, Reginald’s face became a bit more sinister, and his voice lowered slightly. “After arranging these two matters, find a reason to go to Hailey’s room and kill her too. Dispose of her in secret.”
At these words, Mike was stunned. “Dad, Hailey has been loyal to our family since she started working for Liam. She just informed us of this news. Why would we need to kill her too?”
Reginald patted Mike on the shoulder.
With a heavy heart, he said, “Finnegan holds South-North Badge of the Martial Arts Alliance and has the support of the Wahlstrom and Langdon families. Thus, our family can’t lay a hand on him now, especially now that even the Wright family stands with him! If he finds out that I arranged for someone to kill him tonight, what do you think he would do? Hailey should be blamed for being too clever as she figured out- that I arranged for someone to kill Finnegan!”
Realization dawned on Mike. “Dad, I understand.”
Nodding with satisfaction, Reginald waved his hand and said, “. Go. After arranging the two tasks, get rid of Hailey first. We can’t leave any risks.”
Little did they know that in the vase on their left, there was a listening device installed by Hailey earlier. She heard their entire conversation while heading to her room.
The charming woman felt both startled and relieved, grateful that she had chosen to ally herself with Finnegan in advance.
She quickened her pace to her room in the Sable family mansion and dialed Finnegan’s number. “Mr. Larkin, as you expected, Reginald has ordered the elite to come and guard the Sable family.”
After a moment’s thought, she revealed her predicament, “Also, Reginald only wants to cover up the truth and has plans to silence me.”
“Don’t worry, you’re with me. No one can kill you. Find a way to buy time!”
After ending the call, Hailey composed herself and got up to freshen up in the bathroom.
She came out later, wrapped in a bath towel. Her slender legs stepped on the soft carpet, exuding a unique allure.
At this moment, a knocking sound came from the door.
Hailey’s body jolted as she knew that Mike had come to kill her.
Taking a deep breath, she tried hard not to show any signs of unease as she walked to the door and opened it.
Indeed, it was Mike.
But when he saw Hailey wrapped only in a towel, his breath involuntarily hitched.
Hailey’s alluring and youthful appearance still had a significant attraction for Mike, a man in his fifties.
Despite her disdain deep down, Hailey remained expressionless. “Mr. Sable, what’s the matter?”
“I want to talk to you. Is it convenient for you to talk now?”
Only then did Mike come back to his senses.
Hailey pretended not to notice and turned around. “Of course, Mr. Sable. Come on… AH!”
Mike wasn’t sure whether Hailey did it on purpose, but when she turned aside, the towel hooked onto the doorknob, pulling it off her body. Her body which might not be perfect but was attractive was now fully exposed in front of Mike.
Mike’s eyes widened, his breath becoming much heavier.
Hailey blushed and quickly picked up the towel, wrapping herself in it, appearing shy and awkward. “I…
“It’s okay, I know it wasn’t intentional,” Mike said, gulping secretly.
Smiling, he walked into the room and took a seat.
A hint of slyness flashed through Hailey’s eyes.
However, as she closed the door and walked past, she reverted to a shy and awkward demeanor. When she sat down, she lowered her head as if the previous incident had embarrassed her greatly,
When she sat down, she was facing Mike, causing his breathing to become even more labored. In fact, his hands were tightly clenched into fists.
Hailey glanced at him discreetly, silently calculating the time.
Old man, if it wasn’t for buying time for Mr. Larkin to make his move, I wouldn’t bother doing this.
Naturally, Mike had no idea that Hailey was just stalling for time to avoid being killed by him.
Gritting his teeth, he got up and sat down next to Hailey.
She pretended to be nervous. “Mr. Sable?”
With impure thoughts, Mike felt it would be a waste to eliminate Hailey directly. He pulled her into his arms, saying, “You’re really beautiful. No wonder Liam wanted you as his secretary back then!”
Hailey seemed nervous, yet she gently pushed him away, “Mr. Sable, what are you trying to do?”
Her playing hard to get merely stimulated Mike.
He couldn’t resist anymore. “You used to be Liam’s lover. Now that he’s dead, let me take care of what he left behind!”
“This is inappropriate. I was previously Mr. Liam’s lover.”
“There’s nothing inappropriate. Come on!”
Anyway, Hailey won’t survive tonight. Who will know afterward that I slept with Hailey?
So, Mike pushed Hailey down.
To survive by buying time, the latter could only passively accept the situation.
Three minutes later, Mike was panting on the carpet. “Seems like I’m getting old!”
Hailey grabbed the bath towel to cover herself as tears welled up in her eyes. “Mr. Sable, how could you do this to me? How am I supposed to face people in the future?”
Exhaling, Mike rose from the ground. His eyes were filled with nothing but ferocity, devoid of any lust. “It’s okay,” he said, “From now on, you won’t have the chance to see anyone. No one will know that you’ve been toyed with by me!”
As soon as the words fell, Mike stepped forward and clasped Hailey’s neck with both hands.
He blatantly disregarded the fact that he had just slept with her!
Meanwhile, two hundred meters away from the Sable family’s garden, Alisha arrived, clad in a black dress.

Finnegan nodded slightly. “Bennett, it’s time for you to lead the way!”
Carrying his long scimitar, Bennett rushed out instantly, his figure like lightning.
The elites of the Wahlstrom family lurking around the Sable family’s garden also rushed out, their shouts echoing.
Finnegan touched his nose. “Hailey should be dead, right? If she’s dead, I won’t have to fulfill my promise!”
Alisha and Doom Star were silent, feeling strangely sympathetic toward Hailey.
To Finnegan, she was nothing but a pawn!
