Olivia wondered what was happening in the woods. It was clear that this wasn’t a random attempt. Leia had help.
Olivia felt anxious, but she didn’t make a move. She was pregnant, and it was safer to remain where she was. She wondered if Ethan had been shot.
As Olivia was deep in thought, she heard another loud bang. A bullet pierced through the darkness and barely missed her face. The bullet was buried in the wardrobe behind her.
Olivia froze with wide eyes, unable to move. She just had such a close encounter with death. Then, she noticed a man on a slope not that far away. His range of fire was limited because he wasn’t armed with a sniper rifle. Olivia was able to make out the outline of the shooter’s silhouette.
He was wearing a mask. His figure was tall and slender. The eyes behind the mask met with Olivia’s
Olivia called out his name immediately, “Jack, is that you?”
The man didn’t respond. He gave her a good look before disappearing into the woods. Olivia was sure it had to be Jack, who had been gone for so long. They had lived on an island together for a while, so
she was sure she wasn’t mistaken.
With his aim, he wouldn’t have missed. So, the shot was to warn her of the dangers ahead. Olivia took a few steps back and quickly left the room. Upon spotting Brent, she promptly went to him.
Brent dropped everything he was doing when he saw Olivia’s pale expression and the sweat on her
“What’s wrong, Mrs. Miller?”
“Someone is trying to kill me.” Olivia placed a hand on her stomach. She would be dead if the man
who shot at her wasn’t Jack.
It would seem like the primary objective of the other party was to bring Leia away. They didn’t know Olivia would be there. Jack’s bullet was a reminder to Olivia that she was being targeted.
There was indeed something fishy with Jodie’s death. It might be that Leia wasn’t the only one who
wanted her dead.
Brent quickly began defensive maneuvers. He brought Olivia to a secure room and had people. guarding it.
“Send some people after Leia. She knows the truth about everything. We must find her as soon as
“Mrs. Miller, you don’t have to worry. Mr. Miller won’t let her get away.”
“I want to see Leia’s medical team.”
Brent shook his head and said, “I don’t think you should do that, Mrs. Miller. Someone from the inside must have helped Ms. Miller, or she wouldn’t have been able to escape. You mentioned that the enemy is hostile against you. You’ll be in danger if the traitor is in the medical team.
“You’re pregnant now. We have to make sure you’re safe. Everything else can wait until after Mr.
“Alright.” Oliva sat on the couch, feeling uneasy. Her mind was in a mess. She didn’t know who else would want her dead other than Leia.
She had known for a long time that Jack’s identity was extraordinary. Was he part of the organization that wanted to kill her?
Olivia rubbed her stomach, wondering if she could give birth to her babies safely.
The wind was howling, and gunshots could be heard occasionally. Ethan had rushed out without any preparations. Olivia wondered if the situation was under control.
It felt like a century had passed before the door opened, and Ethan walked in.
Olivia stood up instinctively and asked, “Did you find her?”
It wasn’t just about Jodie anymore. Olivia’s life was also in danger.
“She got away.”
“Did Toxic Hive take her away?”
Ethan shook his head and said, “No. They were professional mercenaries.”
