Chapter 609 Exposed Lie
Nigel and Yerek paled when they realized what Timothy was trying to do.
Not only was Timothy trying to divide the family’s assets, but he was going to settle the score with them
If he were to expose those dirty deeds they had done in private, their reputation would be ruined for good.
Timothy was cruelly forcing them down the path of no return. He did not care that they were his family.
Since Yerek had deliberately ruined Timothy’s relationship with his daughter, he was going to do the same thing to Nigel and Yerek, too.
“You guys still haven’t found out?” Timothy sneered. “Anya’s kidnapping was a show she orchestrated, including the part where she was threatened and needed a large sum of money to resolve the issue. You were all fooled by her. Speaking of which, Yerek’s her accomplice. How else would he have managed to convince you to hand over all the shares you owned?” D
Nigel had planned everything meticulously, but in the end, his downfall was caused by the person he was closest to.
Fury surged into his brain and took over his mind. Slamming his fist onto Yerek’s face, Nigel shouted, “Why did you do that?”
Azure screamed and grabbed Nigel to stop him. “Let go of Yerek! You’re going to kill him at this rate!”
However, Nigel no longer had control over his emotions. He pushed Azure away and continued punching Yerek.
“I didn’t make the effort to bring you back to the Gibson family so that you can set me up! You ungrateful jerk! I shouldn’t have kept you around!”
Yerek coughed and said laboriously, “I didn’t set you up. If my friend didn’t offer that high price, those shares you owned wouldn’t have even fetched twenty million. They would’ve ended up getting sold for a dirt cheap price!”
The news of how the Gibson family had offended the Hadley family and was blacklisted by the Hadley family was no secret to the industry. Besides Sheridan, no one else dared to work with them. If not for that, the Gibson family would not have fallen from grace.
In other words, Gibson Corporation’s current situation was a result of Nigel’s actions.
Nigel froze when he heard that, and Azure took the chance to pull him away from Yerek.
As she helped Yerek up to his feet, she asked, “Yerek, are you okay?”
“I’m fine, Grandma.”
“The injuries on your face are quite serious. I’ll send you to the hospital first. We’ll talk about the rest of this at home later on.”
Now that the secrets were all out in the air, Yerek no longer had any qualms about anything and didn’t bother putting up an act. He wiped the blood on the corner of his lips before shooting a glare at Timothy and Nigel. He then walked toward the cemetery’s entrance as Azure supported him.
Their falling out relieved Timothy of the pent–up misery and frustration he had been keeping inside him for over twenty years, and he felt much better.
“Jasper, it’s getting late. We can’t waste any more time, Timothy merrily said to his aide, ignoring Nigel,
“Of course, Mr. Gibson. I’ll work on it right away.” With that said, Jasper walked to a quieter spot to make a call, leaving Timothy and Nigel alone,
Having been struck with too much shocking news that day, Nigel turned dispirited, but he continued to glare at Nigel furiously.
“Is this what you wanted to see, Timothy? What good will you get from fighting with your brother?”
“Nigel, you started this game. I don’t care that you stole money from me, but I won’t let you go for taking a life from my side.”
Nigel’s eyes widened, and his heart began to race, hammering against his chest.
“I… I don’t know what you’re talking about!” he yelled before scurrying away.
Timothy watched him leave with a bloodthirsty grin on his face.
Meanwhile, on his hasty way out of the cemetery, Nigel tripped on a jutted piece of rock and fell. He landed right before a pair of feet.
When he looked upward, his eyes met Christina’s which carried a hint of amusement. He swiftly scrambled to his feet.
“Why are you here?” he questioned.
Christina arched a brow. “What a stupid question. My mother’s grave will be relocated today. As her only daughter, don’t you think it’s normal that I pay her a visit?”
What he had experienced earlier coupled with Christina’s mocking words drove Nigel to the edge, awakening the violent streak in him.
“B*tch, I’m going to punch that smile off your face!”
At that, Nigel swung a fist at Christina. However, Christina did not move and merely watched him in silence.
Right then, a hand shot out from behind Christina and grabbed Nigel’s fist.
Lyle twisted his wrist, and in the next instance, Nigel’s scream of agony echoed in the cemetery.
Then, Lyle effortlessly threw Nigel aside as if the latter was nothing but a wet rag. Nigel collided with the solid slate before rolling a few times on the ground.
Nigel felt as if his organs had rearranged themselves. The pain made him convulse and curl into a ball as he moaned–in pain. D
When Timothy and Jasper heard the commotion coming from the entrance, they hurried out to find out what was going on. When they saw Nigel on the ground, all they thought was that Nigel had it coming.
Timothy then worriedly asked, “Christina, are you okay? Was he trying to pick on you?”
Christina did not even spare Nigel a look. “He doesn’t even have the ability to do that. When is the exhumation starting?”
Timothy promptly replied, “We can start now. I just asked Jasper to call you; I wasn’t expecting you to come this early.”
Christina then turned to enter the cemetery while Sebastian followed her with candles and a bouquet of white lilies behind her.
She hadn’t been able to fall asleep at the hotel when Lyle came with news of how the Gibsons were kicking up a fuss before her mother’s grave. There was no way she would let that matter slide.
However, she was stuck in congested traffic on her way to the cemetery. By the time she arrived, the scene had ended, but she did bump into Nigel.
“Get him out of here; I don’t want him tainting the place,” Timothy icily ordered Jasper as a look of disgust flash past his eyes.
“Of course. I’ll get someone to send Mr. Nigel out of this place right away.” Once Timothy was back in the cemetery, Jasper took out his phone and started making calls.
In no time, Azure, who sent Yerek to the hospital personally, came to pick Nigel up.
When she turned her head, she noticed an unfamiliar luxury car at the side of the road. Displeased, she asked Jasper, “Is Timothy meeting a client?”
Jasper replied calmly, “It’s Ms. Steele.”
That crazy girl is here in Hallsbay?
After that, Azure instructed the driver to bring the unconscious Nigel up into the car. While she made to enter the cemetery, she was stopped by Jasper.
She furrowed her brows and questioned, “Jasper, I’m your employer. How dare you stop me?”
“Apologies, but Mr. Gibson told me not to let any irrelevant people in to disturb them.” I
Azure sneered. “I’m his wife’s mother–in–law and his own mother. If he’s going to be relocating my daughter–in–law’s grave, as her mother–in–law, why can’t I be there to pay my respects?”
Jasper was insistent. “I’m sorry, Old Mrs. Gibson, but Mr. Nigel doesn’t look like he’s doing good. Perhaps you should send him to the hospital as quickly as you can instead.”
Anger surged in Azure’s veins when she thought about the terrible state Nigel was in.
“Tell me, did that d*mn girl Christina do this?”
