Chapter 731 Getting Revenge
“Christina, run!” Victoria grabbed Christina and ran out of the mansion.
Lyle’s car had been parked in front of the mansion. When he saw Christina and Victoria running out with a group of housekeepers chasing after them, he started the car immediately.
Victoria opened the car door and pushed Christina in before getting into the car herself.
She then yelled at Lyle, “Drive!”
Lyle locked the car doors and stepped on the accelerator. The car sped away, leaving behind a trail of dust.
The butler and housekeepers looked at the car and were at a loss.
Sh*t! We’re goners!
We actually let Ms. Lesley get away. Mrs. Lesley won’t let us off…
Victoria looked at the mansion that was getting further and further away. She happily leaned in her seat and heaved a sigh of relief.
“It feels so good to be free!” exclaimed Victoria as she turned to look at Christina. Victoria looked like a kitten who was rubbing Christina’s arm. “Christina, thank you for coming to look for me. That’s how I get the opportunity to escape. You have no idea how I have been suffering at home.”
Victoria had lost quite a bit of weight and looked haggard. Only her eyes were shimmering brightly.
Christina felt sorry for her. “You should have called me earlier. When Sebastian couldn’t get in touch with you, he was so worried.”
At the mention of Sebastian, Victoria’s eyes darkened. “If he cares so much about me, why didn’t he come and look for me?”
Victoria had been locked in her room by Brenda, and there was always someone keeping watch on her at all times. In order to prevent her from running away, Brenda instructed the butler to spike Victoria’s food with sleeping pills.
Victoria went through her days in a daze. Whether she was wide awake or dreaming, the person that she wanted to see the most was Sebastian.
From morning to night, Victoria hoped that Sebastian would be the one to rescue her from the Lesley family.
Yet, he did not show up.
The more Victoria thought about it, the more aggrieved she felt, and her eyes became teary. -Christina embraced her and said, “Sebastian wanted to come and look for you, but he couldn’t.”
Victoria looked up all of a sudden and grabbed Christina’s clothes. Her eyes glimmered with hope. “Really?”
“I won’t joke about something so serious. Sebastian has his difficulties too. While you were being locked up by your mother, your brother sent someone to keep an eye on Sebastian.” Christina handed her a piece of
handkerchief before continuing, “Sebastian wants me to let you know that he has never broken his promise to you.”
In that instant, torrential tears streamed down Victoria’s cheeks. She had been suppressing her feeling for so long, and now the dam burst. She clung to Christina and started bawling.
Christina sighed and caressed Victoria’s back. She hoped that after this episode, both Sebastian and Victoria could be together.
After all, there was a limit to what Christina could do for them.
“I want to see Sebastian now. Christina, take me to see him. Okay?” said Victoria with a sob. Both her eyes were red with tears.
“All right. But given the current circumstances, you can’t appear in public places. Come back to Scenic Garden Manor with me, and I’ll ask him to come and pick you up,” Christina suggested.
Brenda would surely send someone to get Victoria back, but no one dared to make a scene at the Hadley family’s territory. As such, Scenic Garden Manor was the best option.
Victoria nodded. “Okay, I’ll go with you.”
Just as Christina brought Victoria back to Scenic Garden Manor, Brenda sent someone to take Victoria back home. Naturally, Christina would not allow that. She ordered the butler to throw Brenda’s men out.
Just as Christina had expected, Brenda dared not make a scene in front of the Hadley residence. One call and her men went away.
Once Victoria had eaten to her heart’s content, she fell asleep. The moment she woke up, she disappeared. “Where is Ms. Lesley?” Christina had just woken up. When she could not find Victoria anywhere, she immediately asked the butler, thinking that Brenda had sent someone to take her away.
The butler looked grim. “Mrs. Hadley, Ms. Lesley is in the backyard questioning Melanie.”
“Oh no!” Christina had forgotten all about that.
According to her plan, Christina was supposed to meet Melanie. However, she received Sebastian’s call for help, so she went to the Lesley family instead. In order not to have any delay, she instructed the butler to bring Melanie to Scenic Garden Manor and waited for her return to deal with Melanie.
Because of everything, Christina had forgotten about Melanie.
The latter was unlucky to have bumped into Victoria.
Worried that Victoria might torture Melanie to bits, Christina quickly made her way to the storehouse.
When Christina was passing by the pond, she saw that Victoria had hung Melanie upside–down using a halyard and was bouncing Melanie up and down.
Melanie was being dunked into the pond head first and pulled up very quickly. Her torture went on and
“Victoria, enough!” Christina went over and took the remote control away from Victoria before telling her off, “Even if Melanie has done wrong, there’s no need for you to torture her like this. If she dies, are you going to be responsible?”
Victoria scoffed. “She deserves it. Who told her to seduce my man? I’m just teaching her a lesson. She’s lucky that I’m not stabbing her with a knife!”
Christina handed the remote control to the butler and said, “Get her down and bring her to the living room. I have something to ask her later.”
Victoria was unwilling, but she dared not go against Christina’s order. In the end, she watched the butler take Melanie back to the living room.
“You tortured her so badly. How am I going to get any information out of her? Victoria, you should learn to control your emotions before you get into trouble.” Christina then added, “Melanie is a key person, and this concerns a bigger plot. You are causing me more trouble.”
It did not cross Victoria’s mind that things could be so complicated. She looked at Christina and apologized, “I’m sorry, Christina. I wasn’t thinking. I only wanted to teach Melanie a lesson. I won’t be at peace until I take my revenge.”
“Even so, you should know your limits,” said Christina. “There’s another hour before Sebastian can go off from work. Let’s use this time to interrogate Melanie. You are welcome to watch, but you aren’t allowed to be physical with her no matter what she says.”
Victoria patted her chest. “Christina, I promise you that I won’t touch her. I’ll leave everything to you.”
Christina did not think that Victoria could get a hold of her emotions. Both women then went to the living
There was a thick blanket wrapped around Melanie. She had regained her energy. Even though the heater was turned on in the living room, she was still shivering.
“Christina, you have already detained me for days now. If you want to kill me, just do it! Don’t torture me like this!”
