Chapter 224: Had to Die
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Finn Taylor made a call to Lindsey Taylor, wanting to take her out for a meal before leaving San Diego. However, the latter didn’t pick up his call.
He made another call, which once again went unanswered. By then, Finn Taylor couldn’t help but feel that something was amiss.
As such, he rushed into his car and flew toward Lindsey Taylor’s rented apartment. Thankfully, he had been there in the past.
Of course, Ginger was right beside him.
As soon as the pair entered the house, they were greeted by the sight of Lindsey Taylor writhing in pain on the ground.
Without any hesitation, Finn Taylor picked the young lady up and rushed to the hospital.
There, Lindsey Taylor finally felt much better after a thorough examination.
“What happened?” Finn Taylor’s first thought was that either Harry Jones or Minnie Jensen had stirred trouble up again.
Then, Lindsey Taylor told him all about what had happened.
As soon as Finn Taylor learned the truth of the matter and realized that it indeed had something to do with Lucy Lawrence, his gaze grew cold.
He picked up his phone and dialed Malcolm Landon’s number. “Do you want to live or die?”
The man on the other end of the call had already been living on edge over the past few days. Although he hadn’t offended Finn Taylor, he supported Philip Smith.
He couldn’t help but fear that Finn Taylor would simply decide to get rid of all of them. That would be disastrous!
He felt as though his heart was in his chest as he received Finn Taylor’s phone call, and the latter’s words stunned him. ‘What is going on?’
“I want to live, Mr. Taylor. I want to live.”
“Alright then. Bring Lucy Lawrence before me today. Otherwise, you’d better get ready for your own funeral.” As soon as he finished his sentence, Finn Taylor ended the phone call.
Ginger couldn’t help but ask, “Bro, are you sure you don’t need to tell Malcolm Landon which Lucy Lawrence you’re talking about?”
‘There are too many women who share that name! How is Malcolm Landon going to find her with just a name?’
“You can’t feed a dog all the time. He has to learn to catch his own prey when he’s hungry. If he can’t even do that, what’s the point of keeping him around?”
Ginger shook his head in confusion, but Yvette Larson called the other just then.
“How’s it going with the Larson family?”
“Not bad. Everything is going quite well.”
“When are you coming back?”
“Soon. I need to make a trip to Chicago.”
“Okay. Stay safe.” Yvette Larson didn’t ask her husband why he was headed for Chicago.
She knew that he had many secrets. Before he took the initiative to tell her about them, she wasn’t going to ask about them.
Finn Taylor hung up the call, and Ginger giggled. “Bro, was that your wife?”
Finn Taylor stared straight at the other, saying, “Someone said that you’d be killed if you dare to even tease your brother’s wife.”
It was a simple sentence, but it was filled with murderous intent.
Ginger was so frightened that he quickly retracted his gleeful smile.
Finn Taylor was trying to let Ginger know that he would tolerate the latter’s cheeky nature toward anything—except anything that had to do with Yvette Larson.
“Lindsey, did you say that the Jensen family was trying to get in your good books?”
“That’s right.” Lindsey Taylor nodded.
Finn Taylor smiled. ‘How interesting. What an interesting way of doing so! It’s true that I want to support a family who would be loyal to me in San Diego. It wouldn’t hurt to give the Jensen family a chance.’
“Can you get in contact with Minnie Jensen? Tell her that you’ve been hospitalized and that I’m here too.” With that, Finn Taylor handed the phone to Lindsey Taylor.
Since the latter’s phone had been smashed, she had no choice but to use Finn Taylor’s phone. Although she had no idea what he was up to, she took the phone without any hesitation and made the call.
Very quickly, Arthur Jensen and Minnie Jensen arrived at the hospital with a basket of fruits and gifts in hand.
As soon as Finn Taylor walked out of the ward, Arthur Jensen followed closely behind the former.
The two then arrived at the rooftop.
“San Diego is huge. I need someone to manage it,” Finn Taylor muttered to himself, but Arthur Jensen quickly understood what he was getting at.
He fell to the ground with a thud. “I’m willing to be your slave, Mr. Taylor.”
“You’re very smart, and you must’ve picked up on some details. I’m willing to give you a chance, but if you betray me, I’ll make sure you’ll regret being alive.” Finn Taylor wasn’t joking. He had been betrayed again and again ever since he was born.
His father, his mother, his grandma. If anyone dared to betray him again, Finn Taylor would have no qualms about simply killing them.
“No, I would never!” Arthur Jensen felt the murderous intent Finn Taylor was exuding, and he trembled in fear as he swore never to betray the other.
“I don’t need you to swear to me—what I need is action. I’ll give you a chance.” With that, Finn Taylor left the rooftop.
Arthur Jensen was left there, unable to conceal his excitement.
Very quickly, the pair returned to the ward.
Finn Taylor turned to Lindsey Taylor. “Lindsey, remember to call your younger sister often once you start working at Arthur Jensen’s company. It’d be best to call her at least once a week. If you don’t call her, I’ll take it that something has happened to you, and heads will roll here in San Diego.”
Although Finn Taylor was talking to Lindsey Taylor, his words were meant for Arthur Jensen.
He was reminding the other that although he might not be in San Diego, he knew everything that was going on.
He had his own men here.
Just as expected, beads of sweat appeared on Arthur Jensen as soon as Finn Taylor finished his sentence.
The former patted his daughter on the back. “Stay here and take good care of Ms. Taylor. Make sure you treat her like you would your parents. If Ms. Taylor complains of feeling unwell, I’ll break your leg!”
Minnie Jensen was so petrified that she quickly agreed.
Finn Taylor acted as though he hadn’t heard the conversation between the father-daughter duo, but it was obvious that those words had been meant for him.
Just then, Malcolm Landon arrived.
Behind him were a few bodyguards who had Lucy Lawrence in their grips.
Malcolm Landon was a respected figure in San Diego and immediately looked into Lucy Lawrence’s interactions with Finn Taylor the moment he contacted him.
Of course, he got hold of Lindsey Taylor’s roommate in no time at all. It hadn’t even taken them an hour to do so.
“Mr. Taylor, I’ve already caught Lucy Lawrence. What should I do with her?”
Malcolm Landon, Arthur Jensen, Minnie Jensen, and even Lindsey Taylor were stunned. They all knew that Lucy Lawrence had offended Finn Taylor quite a few times, but how could he kill her?
“Mr. Taylor?” Malcolm Landon wondered if his ears were playing tricks on him, so he tested the waters tentatively.
“Kill her!” This time, Finn Taylor’s answer was more curt.
There were only two words.
‘Lucy Lawrence has offended me four times—I have to teach her a lesson. Besides, this is my first time in San Diego. Those prominent figures in San Diego are all looking to observe my personality. To convince them, I have to use the most extreme methods.’
Lucy Lawrence had to die!
