Chapter 587 You Have My Word
Despite being in a horrible situation, Anya still looked down on Emilia. She refused to admit that Emilia, who had lost everything, had it any better than she did.
“I don’t recall giving you permission to get in my car! Also, you stink! Get out right this instant!” she yelled while glaring at Emilia.
For added effect, Anya even covered her nose and mouth to emphasize her feelings of disgust.
Emilia’s face turned gloomy instantly. Instead of leaving as she was told, Emilia shot the driver a glance. and said with a sneer, “I have something very important to discuss with Ms. Gibson. I’m fine with doing so in front of the police station if she’s okay with them hearing it.”
That seemed to have struck a nerve. Anya grabbed Emilia by the shoulder and squeezed it hard as she shouted, “What are you playing at, Emilia? Do you think you can threaten me?”
Emilia arched an eyebrow at her in response and reached for the door handle as she said, “Oh, well… I suppose I should have just minded my own business instead. As difficult as Madison’s case may be. I’m sure you’ll be able to handle it, Ms. Gibson.”
Anya’s heart skipped a beat when she heard that. She immediately grabbed Emilia’s arm and exclaimed anxiously. “You know what? I think we need to have a little chat, Emilia!” Anya then turned to the driver. “Drive us to that alley on the side and wait outside the car.”“
Emilia let out a sly giggle and closed the car door.
The driver drove the car into a quiet alley and got out for a smoke.
“What exactly are you playing at?” Anya asked while glancing at Emilia.
Emilia whipped out her phone from her handbag, played a video on it, and tossed it at Anya. “You’ll soon find out.”
Whatever arrogance Anya had was gone in an instant after she watched the video. She tossed the phone. away in shock and grabbed Emilia by the collar.
“Where did you get this video from? How much do you want?”
Emilia flashed her a gleeful grin and patted Anya on the back of her hand. “Let go.”
As though she had touched something disgusting, Anya quickly let go of her and backed away slightly.
“I’ll pay you as much as you want if you delete that video and keep that secret.”
“Just like with Madison? Listen to your lies, carry out your orders, and get silenced before the truth gets revealed? Or like my mother, whom you used to pit me against Christina and got burned to death in that old house?” Emilia asked with a sneer.
Anya’s face was as white as a sheet.
Miranda did a perfect job, so how could Emilia possibly know it was my idea?
Anya swallowed hard and tried to look calm as she replied, “You claim that I killed your mother, but do you have proof of it? Your mother and I have nothing against each other, so why would I take the risk and kill a down-and-out nobody?”
Emilia whipped out a clear plastic bag containing a pink diamond earring.
“This earring was found in the ruins of the fire. It is custom-made by a certain brand, and it is the only pair in the world. All jewelry products of this brand have their own unique serial numbers and certificates. If I hand this carring to the police, you will be charged with the murder of two people. How long do you think the prison sentence will be?”
“N-N-No, please! We can work this out. Emilia! You can’t do this!” Anya exclaimed while lunging at the carring, but Emilia was prepared.
She opened the car door and jumped right out of the car.
Anya grabbed nothing but air and ended up with her upper body dangling outside the car. She even nearly hit her head on the road.
Anxious and desperate, she quickly got back up and pleaded with Emilia, “What do I have to do to have you spare me, Emilia?”
Unbeknownst to Anya, Emilia had never planned on sparing her. However, she didn’t want to get her own hands dirty, so she decided to threaten Anya with evidence of her crimes.
“I need money.”
“I have money! I can pay you as much as you want!”
“I also need a new identity, a luxurious house, and a fancy car.”
“I can give you all of that!”
A satisfied grin spread across Emilia’s face when she saw how terrified Anya looked.
She patted Anya on the head and spoke to her as though Anya were an obedient dog. “As long as you obey my instructions, we will be able to work very well together. After all, who doesn’t want to live a comfortable life of wealth, right, Ms. Gibson?”
Anya nodded profusely in agreement. “Will you give me that earring in return, then?” she asked cautiously while eyeing the earring in Emilia’s hand.
“You can think about negotiating after you have fulfilled my requests. I need to make sure you’re not making empty promises here,” Emilia replied coldly while putting the earring back into her handbag.
“I will definitely keep my promises! You have my word!” Anya exclaimed with tears of desperation in her
Emilia let out a disdainful snort and handed her a business card.
“Also, I want to get into the entertainment industry, so I want you to take care of this manager for me. Deliver everything I asked for within two days, or you will be seeing this carring on the table of the police station interrogation room,” Emilia added with a gleeful grin before strutting off.
Anya waited until Emilia was gone before letting out a frustrated scream.
“Emilia, you b*tch! How dare you threaten me?” she yelled with bloodshot eyes as she glared daggers at the business card.
Anya’s violent outburst was interrupted when her phone started ringing all of a sudden.
Noticing that it was an incoming video call from Yerek, she quickly put on a sweet smile as she answered the phone. “Yerek…”
“Since you have been released on bail, you should hurry up and return to Hallsbay, I don’t have that much time and energy to keep cleaning up your messes, so stop causing the family any more trouble.”
As Nigel had abandoned Anya, she had no choice but to depend on Yerek for everything. After all, the two of them were close.
If Christina gives up on the Gibson family’s inheritance, Yerek will become the ultimate winner in all this!
With that in mind. Anya replied with a sweet smile, “I know. I’ll pack my stuff at the hotel and head to the airport right away.”
Yerek had a brief chat with her and hung up the phone shortly after.
Anya shifted her gaze toward the driver, who was still puffing away on his cigarette, and yelled angrily, “What are you doing standing there? Hurry up and drive!”
The driver tossed the cigarette into the trash, got back into the car, and drove the car out of the alley.
Noticing that the back seat was way too quiet, he turned around and saw two men carrying a huge sack into a black van.
Someone had just kidnapped Anya.
