She slowly asked Eugene, “George Chapman said you gave him money before. When was that?”
Everyone had returned to work, and it was quiet. Only an occasional car would pass by on the road nearby. Eugene paused before replying nonchalantly, “I forgot.”
Melanie nodded numbly. “Let me know when you remember. I’ll return everything to you.”
A look flashed in Eugene’s eyes. He turned to look at Melanie’s face, but she had already stood up slowly to leave.
She was very skinny, and her clothes looked loose on her. It looked like the wind could blow her down
at any time.
The look in Eugene’s eyes darkened. The fingers by his side fidgeted as he slowly frowned.
He stood downstairs for quite a while before leaving. After he went back upstairs, Melanie took a taxi
She did not want to see anybody or do anything. All she wanted was to stay alone on her own.
However, the moment she got home, she saw words written in red paint everywhere, and her mind began to gradually fall apart.
There was red paint everywhere, and they covered almost the entire door. Even the wall at the side. was written full of words. Besides the words ‘pay up‘ in the middle, there were numerous curse words and vulgar sentences, as well as horrible pictures.
Melanie slowly crouched in front of her house. She hugged her head, wanting to curl up into a ball.
However, she could not do that. Her body felt stiff, and she could hardly breathe.
Melanie thought she would cry, but when she touched her face, it was dry.
Blinking, she realized she did not feel as terrible as she thought she would.
At the very least, she did not have the strength to shed any tears.
The old room door was pushed open, and George returned to the dilapidated motel happily.
Dylan and Peachie were on the bed. George glanced at them and flung a plastic bag onto the table. ”
Here’s some food.”
Dylan looked at the bag on the table and saw it was filled with braised meat. She looked at George. Why did you buy this?”
“I’m in a good mood!” George dragged a wooden chair over and sat on it. He crossed his legs and smiled with his fat face. He looked even more hideous than before.
the 1.5 million. I knew I could get it from Eugene Scott. All rich men can’t bear to lose their dignity. All I did was create some trouble and I got the money!”
George grabbed a piece of meat and threw it in his mouth. “If I could get the stupid brat to give me money before, I can do it now too. He thinks he can scare me by calling the police. What a dumbass. He’s just a brainless moron.”
Dylan had no idea what to say as she listened to him. She had just gotten close with Melanie years. before when George instigated her to get money from Melanie.
She was not willing to do that back then because she felt it would only hurt her daughter.
However, George decided to drop by Jepton once, and not long after, he got his hands on a hundred thousand. However, he refused to explain how he got the money no matter how much she pestered him about it. All he said was for her to mind her own business.
For a long time after that, George received money every month. It was not much nor too little, but it was enough for him to enjoy life.
Dylan had always thought that the money was from Melanie, but it looked like Eugene Scott had been the one paying him.
