However, she did not need an answer.
She was just wondering out loud.
She was just worried.
Eugene’s Adam’s apple bobbed, but he said nothing.
He looked at Melanie, who was lost in her grief, and curled his fingers into fists. He turned around to leave the ward,
However, before he left the room, he stopped in his tracks and looked back at Melanie. He reminded her in a low voice, “Dr. Wells has checked the surveillance video, You can see it for yourself.”
Melanie did not react to his words. She remained motionless on her knees.
Eugene looked at the old man lying on the bed. He bowed slightly with a serious expression before turning to leave.
Outside the door, Dr. Wells was already waiting for him. When he saw him come out, he asked, “Can we go in now?”
Melanie was a little faster to come out than they had expected. She still did not look too good, but she still followed Dr. Wells and calmly handled the remaining procedures.
When the paperwork was done, Melanie looked up at Xander. “Where are those two?”
She was talking about George and Dylan.
Xander said, “The police just got here. They’re in the office now.”
Melanie nodded and headed for the office.
Her face was pale and her figure was thin. From behind, she looked like she was about to fall at any moment.
Xander did not have time to think. He followed her.
However, someone was one step ahead of him. Eugene walked straight toward Melanie expressionlessly.
Xander frowned, but he could not say anything given the current situation. He stared at Eugene’s back for a while and followed closely behind.
Before they reached the office, they could hear George shouting inside and Dylan’s sorrowful
Melanie did not stop walking. She went straight into the office and looked at the police officer sitting at the desk. Her tone was calm, but her voice was terribly hoarse, “I’m going to charge George Chapman with premeditated murder.”
George jumped up when he heard that. “Bullshit! I was just here to see my father–in–law. Fuck you and your murder charge!”
Melanie ignored him. She turned back to Dylan and said succinctly, “Was he the one who
murdered Grandpa, or were you an accomplice too?”
Dylan was stunned. The injuries on her face were horrible to look at. She stared at Melanie for a long time without saying anything.
Melanie did not give her time to recover. She said, “Officer, I want to charge them both. The hospital has surveillance footage, and the caregiver is our witness.”
As soon as she said that, George realized that Melanie was serious.
He immediately interrupted her. “Officer, don’t listen to her nonsense! I was really just here to see my father–in–law. S–She just wants to mess with me on purpose. That’s why she said that!
“I thought it was boring for him to stay alone in the ward, so I wanted to take him out for a breather!” George said without thinking. “I didn’t know that I couldn’t pull that thing out. I could still hear him talking at first, so I thought it would be fine for a while—”
George was still explaining nonsensically, but he was basically confessing to his crime.
He looked at Dylan, who was simply weeping beside him. He gave her a vicious kick. “Say something, bitch! Your daughter’s gonna charge me for murder, and all you can do is cry!”
The office was in chaos. Melanie turned away in silence, but she almost ran into someone when she looked back.
Melanie paused and looked up. There was no expression on her face, but her eyes were like an abandoned wasteland. There was no light in them at all. They were empty and dead.
She just looked at Eugene blankly.
