That would mean Jack was a mercenary too. What about the weapons he stowed on the island?
Brent quickly told Ethan about the danger Olivia was in.
Ethan promptly approached her and asked, “Are you hurt?”
Shaking her head, Olivia said, “No. I hid after the first shot was fired. Their goal must have been to bring Leia away, so they didn’t come after me.”
“It’s no longer safe here. Brent, move Olivia as soon as possible.
Ethan was worried that the mercenaries might have rigged the resort. And if they were detonated, no one would have time to escape.
“Arrangements have been made. Let’s go, Mrs. Miller.”
Olivia looked like she wanted to say something. “I …”
“I know what you want to talk about. I’ll make time for it later. Liv, I can only tell you that these people are dangerous. If they’re really after you, the situation will be dire.”
Ethan said seriously, “But you don’t have to worry. You’re still safe for now. Their goal was to take Leia away. I’ll arrange for another safe place for you to stay. Bring Liv back home, Brent.”
Olivia was about to leave when she saw that he had been hiding his hand behind his back. She looked down at the carpet and saw a blood stain.
Looking away, Ethan said, “It’s no big deal.”
Olivia grabbed his hand and saw a deep cut on his palm that was bleeding profusely.
Brent quickly said, “Doctor!”
“Alright, it’s not safe here. You should leave first,” Ethan urged.
Olivia looked at the wound and recalled the day when she was bleeding. She replied with a blank
Olivia realized she didn’t have to concern herself with his injuries. They were no longer bound by any relationship. Oliva left firmly without even looking back.
Kelvin and Brent couldn’t help but sigh. Back then, Olivia would be so restless if Ethan felt so much as a headache or got a mosquito bite. Needless to say, she would’ve freaked out if it was a huge cut like
But now, she didn’t even care to ask about it.
Kelvin looked at Ethan’s hurt expression and said, “Mr. Miller, Mrs. Miller really … doesn’t love you
Ethan clenched his fists and said slowly, “Take her away from here. Make sure she’s safe.”
Kelvin sighed and said, “Understood. But what will you do for the wedding tomorrow?”
“Proceed as planned. I’m not their target.
Marina was already crippled, so she was an easy target. Since she was still alive, it meant that she no longer had any value. As for Ethan, Leia had hidden close to him for many years, but she never
intended to hurt him.
Everything that happened was related to the Fordham family. If there were any trouble, it was sure to be targeted at Jeff or Olivia. Ethan had hidden both of them well so that those people couldn’t find
As things were, Ethan knew he needed to find a new hiding spot for Olivia. He couldn’t allow Olivia and the babies to be exposed to danger.
Ethan casually wrapped some gauze around his palm. “Let’s take a look at her room.”
Ethan took out the bullet that was shot into the wardrobe and said, “Get someone to run tests on it.”
“Yes, Mr. Miller.”
The room was largely the same as it was before Leia left. Other than the bed, everything was in order. Ethan sat on the bed. He had been trying to communicate with Leia for the past few days. He even talked about their childhood and promised to bring her to visit their mom after she got better.
But no matter what he said, Leia didn’t reciprocate. She treated him like he was invisible and rarely spoke up.
Ethan was sure that Leia didn’t become the way she was overnight. He wanted to get through to her slowly because she had been physically and mentally traumatized. He thought that the day she opened up to him would eventually come.
He recalled how resolutely she left. And the words she said in her cold and hoarse voice, “Ethan, I can never go back anymore. Leave me. I don’t want to hurt you. Just pretend that you never had a sister
