Caroline hugged Gwen’s waist, nuzzling her face in her neck. “It’s a good thing you’re around,
The two friends talked some more before falling asleep.
However, in the room right next to theirs, Adrian couldn’t sleep at all. Caroline’s absentminded
look filled his entire mind.
Although she hadn’t said why she was acting this way, his intuition told him that it had something to do with her husband.
Adrian got even more jealous at the thought of that man and couldn’t sleep. That man had the world’s greatest blessing, yet he didn’t know how to appreciate her!
Meanwhile, at the Collins family’s home in Easton, Jane whispered, “What do you mean you can’t find them? How can you not find three living people?”
The butler also lowered his voice. “Mrs. Collins, we’ve already sent everyone we could, but we still can’t find anyone. Was… was there maybe an error in your information?”
Jane couldn’t resist raising her voice. “No way there’s an error! I went to get these three people …”
Noticing her mistake, she quickly covered her mouth and lowered her voice again.
“No way. It can’t be wrong. I heard these men often showed up at this bar and slept with many
girls. They’ve always been fine, so how could they suddenly go missing?”
Drugging Caroline had been Jane and Daphne’s idea,
To avoid bringing attention to themselves, they had even hired three people in the bar who had
nothing to do with them and were experts in this sort of thing.
They thought they had this plan in the bag and that they would get Caroline’s nude photos in a
few days. They had never expected the three men to vanish from the face of the earth without a
In a moment of desperation, Jane had asked the butler to investigate the three men. She couldn’t
let Howard find out what she had done.
Just then, the butler’s phone rang. He said apologetically, “Let me take this, Mrs Collins ”
Jane waved her hand impatiently at his words.
The butler answered the call. The caller said something that made the butler even gloomier He
immediately hung up the phone and looked at Jane solemnly.
Jane thought it was work–related and said unhappily, “Just go…‘
“Mrs. Collins… They’ve found the three men.”
Jane’s eyes lit up. “Where are they? Bring them to see me immediately.”
The butler’s face turned pale. “I’m afraid I can’t do that.”
Jane frowned. “What? If you can’t do such a simple thing, what’s the point of having you around?”
“It’s not that.”
The butler explained, “T–they’ve been exiled to Xyridonia. I even heard that their eyes had been
gouged out. I’m not sure if they lost their eyes before or after they went into Xyridonia.”
Jane’s face turned pale, and she slumped back in her chair.
Xyridonia was an uncivilized country filled with barbarians. If three civilized people were thrown
in that lion’s den, they would probably end up as a pile of bones.
“How did this happen?” she asked in shock. They had been perfectly fine, so how had they ended
up in Xyridonia?
The butler shook his head with lingering fear. “We’re not clear about the details yet. But I’m
guessing they may have upset someone they shouldn’t have.”
Jane let out a shaky breath. The three men had done plenty of vile things, so it probably had
nothing to do with her attacking Caroline.
At the thought of this, she slowed down her rapid heartbeat. It was just a pity that her brilliant
plan had fallen apart so soon.
