Life After Prison by Silencieux (PDF) novel Chapter 23

Chapter 23 

“B-B-Blade?!” Denzel’s expression soured when he heard that name. 

Diane, who initially was able to breathe a sigh of relief, immediately turned pale. She said softly to Severin, “Bad news. It appears that the Loughs have still maintained connections with Blade.” 

Severin’s brows furrowed, not out of nervousness, but out of curiosity. “Is this ‘Blade’ guy strong? What kind of person is he?” 

“You might not know this, but aside from the wealthy families we see in Brookbourn’s surface, there’s the existence of a ruler in the underworld, as well as an organization called the Draco Hall. Draco Hall’s second-in-command is Blade. He’s a capable fighter, and he only got to where he is now by killing people. They say that he faced more than a hundred people with only a blade in his hand, and by the end of the massacre, more than sixty of them lay dead the ground, while the others ran off because they were scared out of their wits!” Diane said with a frown. 

She was growing increasingly worried, and after pondering over the situation, she said softly to Severin, “We should go, Severin. We can probably still get away if we leave now, because Denzel’s security guards might be able to help us stop the Loughs’ bodyguards. If we miss that chance, I don’t think anyone will be able to save us!” 

When Severin heard that, he grinned slightly and said, “I didn’t come here today to cause trouble at the wedding. Lucy owes me a hundred and ninety thousand, all of which were my parents’ hard- earned money. That amount consists of forty thousand for the dowry, and the hundred and fifty from when she sold off my matrimonial home in a scam for half the original price!” 

Diane was stunned for a moment before she managed to string her words together. “Are you stupid? You’re willing to risk your life for money? Do you honestly think you’ll be able to escape this situation with your money?” 

Severin nodded right away and said with conviction, “I don’t think that’ll be a big problem.” 

Diane nearly fainted. His words were infuriating! She could not believe that he just described the situation as not a big problem! Had she not called the Shanahans to stall time, and had Denzel not stepped forward to speak up for him, Severin would have been hacked to death already.
