Chapter 427 I’m Begging You
When the cops arrived, Sean remained silent while Scarlett, holding a weeping Kelly, looked at Abigail with grave hostility.
“Yes, I have surveillance evidence. She came in and started insulting and slandering me. I’m going to sue her,” Abigail said, her tone resolute.
After the cops had completed the record, they turned to Lina. “You need to come with us.” Since she intentionally damaged Abigail’s finances and harmed her, she had to be taken to the station. for a few days.
Lina looked at her grandson. “Sean, I did all this for you-”
“The law applies to everyone, whether they’re royalty or commoners. You’ve damaged someone’s property and deliberately harmed them. Do you expect me to protect you in front of the
authority?” he asked with a cold expression.
“You’d disregard rationality for this woman-”
“Get this straight, Grandma-you’re breaking the law! Otherwise, do you think the cops would be arresting you?” he angrily interrupted her, keeping his composure and speaking calmly, “Why did you come to Capitalis? Who told you she was in this hospital? If no one urged you, you wouldn’t be taken away by the cops today!”
Lina glanced at Kelly and then at Abigail. “I can compensate you with money. It’s just a freaking tablet!”
The cops reflexively frowned and reminded, “Tablet aside, there are reportedly valuable design drawings on it.”
“Officer, I can prove that I am Alana. When she smashed my tablet, I had valuable designs in it.” Abigail told the authority.
She was not trying to scare Lina with her words. Unfortunately, the design she had drawn was for a celebrity’s evening gown, set to be worn on New Year’s Eve, priced at 400 thousand.
Seeing that Lina still wanted to argue, Sean sternly questioned, “Who exactly sent you here?!”
“You don’t need to ask anymore. You’re determined to stand on her side, so I have nothing more to say!” Lina firmly believed that this matter was not as serious as it seemed. After all, it was not like this was her first time damaging others’ properties.
After the cops took her away, Sean looked at Kelly and said, “Don’t let me find evidence, or the Pearson Family will have a tough time!” He then turned to Cameron. Take the tablet and laptop and see if they can be repaired.”
There was nothing he could do about the design drawings Abigail intended to pursue. After all, he was not a designer.
Scarlett held Kelly in her arms, her face filled with disbelief. “Kelly didn’t do anything, and you’re just spewing baseless accusations against her? I could also sue you for spreading false rumors!”
“Mom…” Kelly could not help but shout.
Scarlett was frustrated with Kelly. How can you still be defending Sean at a time like this?!
“You’re welcome to do that anytime,” he said icily.
“Sean, just because Abigail dislikes me, you’re a*suming that your grandmother’s visit to Capitalis is my doing, right?” Kelly looked at him, her face still bearing the imprint of Cameron’s slap.
Sean only stared icily at the young woman, having no desire to converse with her.
“Your grandma found me and said she wanted to come to Capitalis. You can check our phone records. She knew about the hospital on her own, and she’d seen Abigail’s news. She’s not oblivious to your relationship with her, she continued, her eyes red from crying.
“Do you think Mr. Graham would believe your words, Hagl?” Cameron, who had finished packing the computer and tablet, suddenly chimed in.
Sean looked at Abigail and said in a deep voice, “If the tablet gets fixed and the design drawings are still there, I hope you
n let my grandmother off this time.”
She looked at him. “If you want me to spare her this once, I need you to promise me that won’t show up in front of me again, that you won’t bring me any more trouble. I’m begging you.”
His hand at his side tightened briefly, but after a moment, he nodded. “Alright.”
“Please keep your word,” she said and then called for a doctor. With her hospitalization behind her, the hospital-related matters came to an end.
Abigail returned to the company and vented about the unfortunate events of the day with Luna.
“You’ve been having a streak of bad luck lately… If you ask me, you shouldn’t easily let that old lady off the hook,” Luna whispered.
Abigail, who was in the process of booting up her computer, glanced at her. “Sean said that as long as I let her go this time, he won’t show up in front of me anymore.”
Luna stared at her in silence for a moment and then sighed. “Family 1 important, after all.”
“This is a good opportunity, Sean is nothing but trouble for me, Abigail said, her voice cold She believed that she and Sean should not interfere with each other, which would be the best
From the beginning, she should not have coveted Sean. Without that desire, she would not be facing all these troubles now.
“Anyway, he’s not the only fish in the sea. There are plenty of other men,” Luna consoled her. Having lived together for so long and now dealing with a situation that had escalated to the point of involving the authority and legal proceedings, Abigail must have felt uneasy.
“You’re right, but with my work, how do I find time for a man?” Abigail could not help but joke with her.
Luna quirked a brow and laughed. “I’m busy too, but I still managed to find myself a young boyfriend, didn’t I?”
