At that moment, Frederick Larson sat as still as a statue. His heart broke upon thinking about the situation his daughter was in. Never would he have expected his daughter to have gotten pregnant.
Not only that, but the man wasn’t even going to take responsibility for it! Instead, he had made Finn Taylor come over to ask him to make his daughter abort the baby.
‘What a heartless man!’ Frederick Larson shook his head in disappointment. “I won’t agree to it. I’m going to sue Alexander Scott. I want him to understand that he can’t have everything he wants just because he’s rich!”
Finn Taylor wanted to go on, but Frederick Larson chased him away.
Finn Taylor felt helpless. ‘I had intended to find a breakthrough point via Frederick Larson, but that seems impossible now. What am I going to do?’.
He knew that it wasn’t going to be easy to resolve this matter.
Finn Taylor thought the matter through for a whole night but couldn’t think of a good solution. In the end, he asked Alexander Scott and made a request of him.
Following his boss’s order, Alexander Scott headed to the hospital with several men in tow.
Just like the previous day, Quince Larson wasn’t going to give Alexander Scott the chance to enter. However, the latter got his men to subdue Quince Larson as he walked into Eleanor Larson’s ward alone.
The moment she spotted him, she couldn’t help but sneer. “Are you scared now?”
Alexander Scott didn’t reply to her and instead posed another question. “How many months along are you?”
Eleanor Larson chuckled. “You must be wondering if the child has anything to do with you. I’m telling you that it doesn’t—the child is Finn Taylor’s. Scram!”
Alexander Scott knew that the other was simply ranting, but her words evoked even more suspicion in him. ‘If I ignore her and allow her to give birth to the child, we’ll truly be doomed.’
“Eleanor Larson, I know you love money. I’ll give you 150,000 dollars to conduct a DNA test. If the child is mine, give birth to him, and I’ll raise him.”
Eleanor Larson chuckled. “Alexander Scott, do you think I’m as gullible as a three-year-old? You can just tell me if you don’t want the child. Come on—there’s a fruit knife here. You can kill me right now.”
She took the fruit knife out and handed it to the other. To be honest, the latter was very tempted to stab her to end everything. As long as Eleanor Larson was dead, everything would end.
But he couldn’t do that—he wasn’t that vicious.
If he knew for sure that Eleanor Larson was just playing with him and that she wasn’t carrying his child, he might very well have killed her right then. However, he couldn’t bring himself to do that.
“Alexander Scott, what are you doing with that knife?” Quince Larson had finally struggled free from those men. Seeing the knife in Alexander Scott’s hands, he quickly whipped out his phone to take a photo.
Alexander Scott slammed the knife down on the bedhead frustratedly, saying to his men, “Teach him a lesson.”
Of course, Alexander Scott was talking about Quince Larson.
With their boss’s command, the men naturally didn’t hold back. They gave Quince Larson a vicious beating.
When Alexander Scott returned, Finn Taylor and the rest were waiting there for him.
Finn Taylor was drumming the table with his fingers as he wondered how to resolve the matter.
“Master Peregrine, do you think it’s possible to get the DNA of that child if we rope in a doctor?”
Finn Taylor waved him off, rejecting that suggestion. ‘While that is the simplest solution, it’s also the most foolish one. Quince Larson must’ve already thought of that and must’ve spoken to the doctor. We’d only be exposing ourselves if we do that now.’
“Master Peregrine, I have something.” Just then, Zachary Kennedy—who was in the corner—spoke up. He was the most tech-savvy amongst them all.
Over the past two days, everyone had been busy with discussions. On the other hand, Zachary Kennedy had been busy on his computer.
Nobody knew what he was doing, but neither did they stop him from doing so.
Now that he had finally spoken, everyone shot their gazes over. They wanted to know exactly what he had found.
After everyone walked over, Alexander Scott pressed the spacebar on the keyboard. Then, a video started playing on the monitor.
It clearly showed Eleanor Larson stumbling out of a bar, dead-drunk, before collapsing at the door.
A few young men then walked out of the bar after her. Seeing no response from Eleanor Larson after kicking her several times, they dragged her into their car.
Alexander Scott fast-forwarded the video.
About half an hour later, Eleanor Larson was thrown out of the car. Her clothes were evidently in a disheveled state, and the car raced off.
Alexander Scott closed the video and turned to the rest.
Everyone looked at each other in confusion, not comprehending what they had just seen. ‘This means that Eleanor Larson also did it with other men apart from Alexander Scott!’
Alexander Scott was overwhelmed with emotions. “It wasn’t me—it definitely wasn’t me. I never would’ve made such a low-level mistake since I always take all precautions. Master Peregrine, I was framed. I was definitely framed.”
Alexander Scott kneeled down and begged Finn Taylor for mercy.
The latter helped him up.
The truth was finally out. The only thing they had to do now was a paternity test.
“Don’t worry; it wasn’t you. I won’t let anyone smear your name.”
It wasn’t just Alexander Scott who was raging—even Finn Taylor was fuming too.
He had nearly been tricked.
St. Cloud Hospital.
Eleanor Larson had just finished cleaning Quince Larson’s wound. Then, she said, “Quince, I heard everything you said to Alexander Scott. It’s impossible for him to get that money back for you.”
Quince Larson was still reveling in his daydream, so he frowned the moment he heard that.
“Don’t frown. It’s simple—I have no right to do that. Even if I give birth to the kid, they’ll have no status. At the very most, I’ll receive alimony to raise the kid. However, my life will be over if I give birth to the kid! Alexander Scott would never offend Hunter Sullivan for this child! This child’s ending is already set, so I have to abort him. But if Alexander Scott wants us to abort this child, we’ll extort a good sum of money from him. My suggestion is to invite him to the Larson family’s residence along with the rest of the Larson family to extort some money from him.”
