The maritime museum collected all sorts of artifacts from different countries. It wasn’t usually open to the public, so it was Olivia’s first time visiting. She was stunned to see the stuff that was on display.
She fell behind the crowd as she was carefully observing each single item on display.
The one item she was most shocked by was a statue. It was pure white and looked very natural under the lighting.
She was creeped out when she noticed the face on the statue. because it resembled her own. But the statue was an antique from hundreds of years ago. It was probably a coincidence.
Olivia turned around and realized that the crowd had already moved forward. She went and caught up to them. After all, she was paid to do her job. She had to focus on getting it done.
Before she could take a few steps, she noticed a foreign reporter squeezing through the crowd to get to the front.
It wasn’t even the time for interviews yet. Why was that person in a
Olivia was a very cautious person. That person had his sights set on Mason. There was… killing intent in that person’s eyes.
Surely no one would be stupid enough to do anything here, right?
If anything went wrong, it would become an international incident.
Olivia quickly sent Ethan a text. The person was already rushing
forward when Ethan stopped to read the text.
There wasn’t enough time!
Olivia reacted quickly. She leaped toward Mason when she heard the
gunshot. The bullet grazed her cheek, and she was able to push
Mason into the water.
There was a huge splash. That person opened fire again but the bullet
didn’t hit anyone. The next second, he was subdued by Ethan.
Chaos ensued as the security team quickly came forward.
Olivia was extremely calm. She stood in front of Mason the whole
time. She only helped him out of the water after the danger had.
She was soaked. A man’s coat was suddenly dropped on her head.
It was Ethan.
He couldn’t stay with her because of his duty, but he told two security
guards to bring her somewhere to get changed.
Things were completely out of control. An assassination attempt happening here was a big deal. The news of this incident would have
to be kept from the public.
Olivia noticed that her mask had been torn. The bullet had grazed past it, and it was soaked. She touched the mask with her fingers.
This type of mask couldn’t be soaked in water. It would lose its
original shape when it came into contact with water.
The mask was useless. She had no choice but to remove it. Luckily,
she was just a doctor who wouldn’t stand out in a place like this.
Ethan could help cover for her later.
Olivia heard the door unlock when she just finished texting. She
figured it was Ethan who came.
She touched her face and complained to him. “It was so close. I was. almost disfigured…”
She stopped talking abruptly.
It wasn’t Ethan who came but Linus.
She could feel her heart sink. Why was it him?
It was the worst-case scenario. She regretted her decision to show
off. She had exposed herself,
Linus locked the door behind him.
Linus’ phone vibrated. He took it out, and a voice could be heard clearly.
“I’ve looked into the person you told me to. She’s the daughter of the Fordham family. She has another interesting identity. Her ex-husband is someone you know.”
“Tell me.” Linus’ voice was very cold.
The room was so quiet they would’ve been able to hear a needle falling. The voice coming from the phone was especially clear.
The person slowly said, “Ethan.”
Linus hung up and stared daggers at Olivia. “Vanessa? Or should I call you Ms. Fordham?”
