Chapter 668 Properly Repaying The Favor
Abigail crossed her arms and frowned as she gazed at the lush greenery. Boldly, she retorted, “You’ve investigated everything. Why bother asking me?”
Simond tugged at his lips and replied, “I just wanted to confirm with you.”
“What exactly do you want to say?” she inquired.
“Ms. Quinn, let me advise you. Attacking a fraud den is not something an ordinary person can do. Sean Graham has offended the wrong people. That’s why your friend ended up in this situation. Some people have no regard for human life when it comes to money. You were completely unaware when they were devising their plans. What abilities do you have to fight against them?”
Simond’s smile seemed mocking.
Abigail’s face slightly reddened as she looked at Simond, but she remained silent.
His words had left her speechless indeed.
Sean had almost lost his life because of this incident, and it took two years to recover. Now, it was Luna’s turn. As Abigail thought about Vincent, who had spent the last two decades as a pawn for the sake of the dirty money in his possession, she knew that period would be in vain if they easily got rid of
“Do you know how tempting over 100 billion, or even an immeasurable amount of money, can be?” Simond asked her with a smile.
She had no idea about this, just like a poor person who couldn’t fathom a wealthy individual’s life. People had no concept of things they had not experienced themselves.
“You’ve said so much. What’s your purpose? Are you trying to persuade Sean to tell the police not to attack the fraud den?” she countered Simond’s words.
“If the police have already intervened, how could they stop investigating? I just wanted to tell you that you’ve never been safe. I’ve also mentioned that having me as a friend won’t be a loss for you,” Simond smiled.
Abigail looked at him and sneered. “Don’t tell me you want to help me.”
“I do want to help you. Is that so surprising?” Simond asked with a smile.
“Are you joking? How long have we known each other?” Abigail scoffed. She couldn’t believe that Simond was interested in her solely because of her outstanding appearance. For a person like him, he would have encountered all kinds of women.
Simond smiled. “Because I’m bored. It would be dull to return to my home country without any friends. I finally met someone like you. You’re a big shot. I have to seize the opportunity, or how else will I conduct business without connections in the future?”
Abigail couldn’t help but roll her eyes. He could invite that psychologist from the Sixth People’s Hospital but claim that he has no connections?
“The premise of cooperation is sincerity, and that is my principle. Even if you don’t say anything, I’ll still find a way myself,” she looked at him coldly. “Who knows? Maybe you’re the boss behind the money laundering?”
Didn’t he say something along the lines that those people were plotting without her knowledge? Perhaps everything that has happened so far was part of the boss’ scheme?
Simond looked surprised, after which he burst into laughter. “Alright. You’re good at making inferences. I do have a request in exchange for helping you. You know my family has just returned from abroad, right? Despite the grand exposure, the public attention faded quickly.”
“Do you really need that kind of hype?” Abigail asked in return.
His expression turned serious. “Of course we do. I ended up in this situation because of my enemies. If my exposure is significant enough for me to become the center of attention, my enemies won’t dare to act recklessly.”
She immediately shook her head. “Your enemies don’t seem any better than the people we’ve encountered. I even saw firearms. Do you think it’s safe for me to cooperate with you?”
“You won’t lose anything by helping me, and in return, I can assist you as well. It doesn’t matter if it’s the child or her situation. If any issues arise in the future regarding this child, I can simply claim it as my own,” Simond commented casually as he played with his phone.
Abigail contemplated, Should I really refrain from discussing this with Sean? What unforeseen consequences could arise if I do?
“In that case, I’ll await your response,” Simond said nonchalantly.
After he finished speaking, he departed.
Abigail watched him leave with concern. Could the child also be a crucial factor? However, the one who possessed the knowledge-Luna-unfortunately suffered from mental issues.
Her biggest dilemma now was whether or not to inform Sean. If Abigail told him, what if he encountered another accident? He was merely fortunate to have escaped the Golden Triangle incident with the help of Lady Luck.
Would Lady Luck continue to favor Sean if another problem arose? Or should she seek Simond’s assistance in investigating what happened to Luna?
Simond exited the hospital and took out his phone. He received a message. ‘Ms. Quinn reported those individuals yesterday and they were arrested. A murder was narrowly avoided, but fortunately, the local police were vigilant
After reading the message, a smile formed on his lips Quite an intriguing turn of events.”
Despite being armed, Abigail unexpectedly found the courage to report them. Furthermore, she was the only one who noticed their weapons.
‘Continue to monitor Abigail and report her every move to me. By the way, help me book a train ticket

for this afternoon. I’m returning to Capitalis tonight.
After sending the message, Simond’s mood suddenly improved.
Abigail had undeniably saved him twice, which meant he needed to properly repay this favor.
