Chapter 542: Eliminate Heirship

He would be judged and punished. Florence had a sudden blackout and she felt a rush of bitterness in her mouth. In the end, she still got Ernest into trouble. Benjamin looked at Florence’s traumatized look with complacence and took a step forward, snatching the knife away from her hand. He glimpsed at the wound on her neck and ordered coldly, “Bandage her wound and don’t let her die. ” What he wanted was just to let her live. Florence stood there in a trance. There were only darkness and despair left in her heart. Now, Ernest was tricked by Benjamin too and he fell into the water. She wondered how Stanford would treat him and what punishment would Ernest face from the Turner family. Her heart ached just by thinking of it. Florence was brought back to her room. This time, Benjamin had sent men to keep their eyes peeled on her, even when she was going to the washroom. He would not give her any single chance to kill herself nor escape anymore. Florence was desperate and she did not plan to fight her way out, sitting there like a puppet instead. She stared across the window at the endless ocean. Not knowing how many hours had passed afterwards, shoreline and land finally appeared at the far end of horizon. Benjamin had reached the place he wanted to take her.

They were criticizing someone with rage. “Ernest Hawkins is too reckless and bold, how could he do such a thing that would damage the Turner’s reputation! The Turner’s must not endure this kind of shame!” “Agree, we Turner’s can’t stand this humiliation! Ernest Hawkins must pay the price!” “Dismiss him! Eliminate his right as the heir. He could not be the heir of the Turner’s anymore after what he had done!” The conversation went on among the elders and they sounded more and more furious. Every criticism was directed towards Ernest. Florence stood there with her body frozen and she stared at the screen in a daze.
