Super Son-In-Law Chapter 254

It was close to noon when Wang Shunquan grabbed Cynthia’s hand and sat silently by the bed.

Liu Yunxiu sat on the other side of the hospital bed, feeding Cynthia with a small spoon.

Hunter and Isla were sitting by the side, enjoying the limited time when they were allowed to get along with Cynthia by doctors.

All of a sudden, Isla’s mobile phone rang. She took out her mobile phone and looked at it. She found that it was a piece of information on a local financial channel on a news app downloaded by her. It was the hot news that Jared, the son of Gerald, had been mysteriously killed.

To be exact, this was not a piece of financial news, but Isla stood up suddenly and couldn’t help exclaiming, “What’s going on? Is Jared dead?”

The others present did not react much, except for Cynthia, who was lying on the hospital bed. Her eyes suddenly widened and she stared straight at Isla. For a moment, she forgot to swallow the nutritious porridge wrapped in her mouth and involuntarily increased her strength.

Wang Shunquan could feel Cynthia’s sudden increase in strength. He was the first to notice Cynthia’s abnormality and asked with concern, “Cynthia, what’s wrong? What… what’s wrong with you? Don’t scare me!”

Then, the others present also noticed the abnormality of Cynthia and rushed over to ask.

Tears rolled down the corners of Cynthia’s eyes. She bit her lips and looked at the people present one by one. Then she shook her head and said softly, “I’m fine, I’m fine…”

Hearing this, everyone was shocked.

Isla rushed to the bedside and stared at Cynthia with hope. “Can you understand what we said? Have you regained your memory?”

Hunter also came over. “Cynthia, do you remember who we are?”

Cynthia cried even harder. Before Wang Shunquan and Liu Yunxiu could speak, she replied, “Dad, Mom, Lala, I’m sorry to have made you worry. I… I’m fine now.”

Everyone present cared about Cynthia the most, so no one blamed her.

What’s more, now she had finally “recover” her memory. Everyone was overjoyed.

The doctor suggested that every time they spent at most half an hour with Cynthia, everyone seized the time to talk to Cynthia. In the process of communication, Isla found a problem, which was that Cynthia treated her and the Wang family’s elders the same, but she was a little indifferent to Hunter.

Hunter himself was more touched. No matter what he said, Cynthia pretended not to hear him, but chatted with the others.

Soon, half an hour had passed. Although everyone was very reluctant to leave, in order to make Cynthia recover faster, they obeyed the doctor’s advice at the same time and left one after another to let Cynthia continue to rest.

Hunter felt very uncomfortable, both uncomfortable and anxious. He politely invited Isla to the corridor and asked, “Boss Isla, did you find that Cynthia seems to only remember you, and still has no impression of me? Could it be… could it be that she chose to forget me?”

“No, she won’t…”

Isla couldn’t figure it out. While she was thinking about how to comfort Hunter, she saw Alex and Big Ken coming out of the elevator.

Alex also saw Isla and Hunter at a glance. He quickly walked over and asked curiously, “What are you doing here? How is Cynthia?”

Isla replied with a bitter face, “Cynthia has recovered her memory.”

“Really? This is a good thing, but it seems that both of you are not happy. What’s going on?”

“Cynthia… Hey, come with me first!” There were some things that Isla could not say in front of Hunter, so she called Alex to the corridor upstairs and said softly, “I don’t know why, but it seems that she doesn’t want to talk to Hunter.”

“Ah? Maybe it’s because Cynthia is in low spirits now, so she can’t be enthusiastic to anyone.”

“That’s not it! Cynthia and her parents have a very normal communication, also with me, almost the same as usual. Only she is very abnormal to Hunter, as if she is deliberately avoiding Hunter. Not only did she not communicate with Hunter, but she did not even look at Hunter from beginning to end. It feels like… she has met an enemy. If she still does not remember who Hunter is, it will be better to accept it. The key is that she did know Hunter, but deliberately chose to ignore him.”

“Oh…”

Alex guessed the reason why Cynthia’s attitude toward Hunter was abnormal.

In fact, Alex had expected such a situation to happen. If Hunter and Cynthia were just ordinary friends, the relationship between them would not change. The problem was that Hunter was pursuing Cynthia, and they had a good impression of each other, but they had not pierced through the last layer of window paper.

If the kidnapping had not happened, perhaps they had already established a relationship now.

However, something unexpected happened. Cynthia had been raped by Jared. She must be worried that Hunter would dislike her when he knew about this, so she took the initiative to distance herself from Hunter. Maybe Cynthia was ashamed of herself and thought that she was not worthy of Hunter. As the saying goes, long-term pain is better than short-term pain. She wanted to hurt Hunter in the way of making Hunter give up on her.

Alex could guess what Cynthia was thinking, but he couldn’t say it out loud.

Isla was a little surprised by Alex’s reaction. She asked curiously, “Alex, why are you so calm? Don’t you feel surprised? Don’t you feel anxious for Cynthia and Hunter? You know, they were in a good relationship. Logically speaking, Cynthia’s attitude toward Hunter shouldn’t have changed so much. To tell you the truth, even if they are not suitable for each other, Cynthia should talk about it clearly as soon as possible! The longer it takes, the greater the damage to Hunter.”

“I know. I know…” Alex nodded repeatedly, pressed on Isla’s shoulder, and comforted her. “I know what you’re talking about, but now we don’t know what’s going on. It’s useless to be anxious. How about this, let’s take a break first. When Cynthia is almost fully recovered, we can communicate normally.”

“We are all outsiders. We can keep waiting, but Hunter can’t hold on any longer.”

“I’ll talk to Hunter…”

Alex didn’t think of a good way. The only thing he could do now was to buy as much time as possible.

On the premise that he could not tell the truth, Alex could only lie to Hunter that Cynthia had just recovered, and there were still some problems with her brain. To put it simply, Cynthia’s mind had not fully recovered yet, and she needed enough time.

Hunter was dubious. Considering that Alex would not hurt him, he nodded and agreed.

On the other side, in the Xavier family’s villa.

Captain Pang, who was in charge of the case of Jared being shot to death, conducted a detailed investigation. Then, he learned more about the situation of the Xavier family, and then ordered his men to withdraw. He said to Gerald, “Mr. Xavier, we will try our best to solve the case and arrest the murderer. Since the cause of the murder has been confirmed by the medical examiner, there is no need to conduct further tests. We can deal with it. If there is any progress in the investigation of our police, we will tell you in time. Please don’t be sad!”

“Wait a minute!” Gerald stopped Captain Pang and asked coldly, “What are you going to do?”

“Well… to be honest, the situation I know is too limited and I don’t have any clue yet, but I will investigate from many sides and try to solve the case as soon as possible. Mr. Xavier, I understand your mood and know that you are in a hurry to seek justice for your son. But… this matter can’t be rushed.”

“It’s not your son who died. You don’t understand!”

“Mr. Xavier, your words are a little unkind… Forget it, goodbye!”

“Why are you in such a hurry? I haven’t finished speaking yet! Group Leader Pang, don’t you have a clue? I can give you a breakthrough point. Alex said before that after dealing with the grievances with Pei Chong, he will find my son to solve the problem. As soon as Pei Chong died, my son had an accident. I can tell with my foot that it must have been done by Alex. So there is no need to do any other investigation on this case. As long as we arrest Alex and interrogate him, we can solve the case.”

“Mr. Xavier, I’ll remember what you’ve said. Don’t worry; I’ll do my best to investigate. If I find conclusive evidence, I’ll arrest him and interrogate him. However, based on your speculation just now, I can’t apply for warrant of arrest.”

“What do you mean? You don’t believe me?”

“The subject of the case is evidence, not subjective speculation. Mr. Xavier, please understand. Goodbye!”

Group Leader Pang was too lazy to deal with people like Gerald, let alone talk nonsense. After that, he left.

Gerald wanted to stop Captain Pang, but he was stopped by two police officers. After watching the police leave, he came to the duty room, glanced at the bodyguards, and asked, “Who was on duty last night?”

When something happened at home, all the bodyguards kept quiet.

Whether it was the night shift or the day shift, neither of them dared to rest. They were all waiting at the duty room.

The bodyguard who was on duty last night knew that a disaster was coming and he couldn’t escape. He didn’t dare to look straight into Gerald’s eyes. After hesitating for a moment, he forced himself to take a small step forward, lowered his head, and said with fear, “Master, it’s me. I’m sorry…”

“Pa!”

“Clap clap!”

“Clap clap clap!”

“Bang!”

Gerald rushed to the bodyguard angrily, grabbed his collar with his left hand, and raised his right hand to shoot his left and right cheeks. His hand was numb, and then he kicked him hard to the ground. He scolded fiercely, “I spent money to support you, so that you can guarantee the safety of my family! As a result, you fucking let my son be hurt in the backyard. How the fuck did you do this? Ah?”

The bodyguard fell to the ground and was beaten black and blue. His face was covered with blue fingerprints, and blood was dripping from his nostrils and mouth corners. After he got up, he didn’t dare to wipe the blood and didn’t dare to breathe. He hurriedly explained, “I’m sorry, Master. Last night when Young Master went downstairs, I asked him, but Young Master said that he didn’t need help, so he ordered me not to follow him…”

“Pa!”

Gerald slapped the bodyguard again, gritted his teeth, and scolded, “At this time, are you still looking for an excuse for your mistake in work?”

“Yes, yes, yes! Master, I know I was wrong…”

“It’s useless for you to know your mistake!” Gerald glanced at the other bodyguards and said, “And you, don’t think you have no responsibility! But the most urgent thing is to find out the murderer, which is also your task. I’ll give you three days. If you can’t find the murderer within three days, you can bring your heads to meet me!”

“Yes, yes, yes!”

All the bodyguards trembled with fear and nodded repeatedly.

The bodyguard, whose eyes were blurred by stars after being beaten, plucked up his courage and said, “Master, Young Master brought back a woman last night. Although Young Master didn’t bring that woman with him when he went downstairs last night, she should know more or less about the situation, or…”

“Pa!”

Gerald was so angry that he slapped the bodyguard again. “Why didn’t you tell me such important information earlier? Why are you still standing there? Hurry up and take action. You have three hours to bring that woman to me!”

“Yes, yes, yes!”

The bodyguards were relieved and rushed out.

However, they were not in the mood to catch the murderer. Instead, they ran for their lives.

Because they all knew that with Gerald’s personality, even if they found the murderer, he would not let them go.

Instead of waiting for death here, it was better to get out of danger as soon as possible…
