“Lyse, amidst the evidence Tristan provided, there’s this particular piece. He insists it be presented in court, but I’m hesitant. Sophia will be charged with or without this evidence anyway, but Javier will abandon her if he learns about it,” Cyrus revealed.
He then showed them a surveillance recording on his laptop. Although the recording was muted, the scene itself was shocking. Jasper, taking a deep breath, felt the instinct to shield Alyssa’s eyes, even though they were all adults.
It turned out to be a recording of Tristan and Sophia making love. Closing her eyes in enjoyment, she rode him naked.
Having been a cop for years, Cyrus remained unfazed by the evidence. He had witnessed more disturbing scenes, such as spilled brains and bags of dismembered human remains.
Alyssa was comparably calm. She even teased, “That witch pretty. good at keeping her figure.”

“I heard you prided yourself on a 100 percent win rate in your career spanning a decade. You even have a plaque by the entrance of your office to show it off, don’t you?” Jasper joined in taunting Simon. “I suggest you take it down tomorrow morning unless you want to be a laughingstock when the trial begins.
