Chapter 622

"You're at Avalan. It's his mansion," said Alana quietly. "Acalan?" Evelyn gasped. "I'm at his place?" Adam stormed into the room and narrowed his eyes darkly. "You two were trying to attack Emmeline?" Panicked, Alana quickly said, "No, we said nothing of the sort, master. " "Lies. " Adam held her by the neck. "You almost killed her last time. I assume you remember what I put you through?" Alana sobbed, "I'm sorry, master. I'm sorry. I didn't mean it. It's her. Evelyn said she wanted Emmeline dead. " "Evelyn?"

They sniped our business and were willing to pay for all damages. But that's not all. They also cut all supplies to our company and plunged us into a crisis. I had to beg Emmeline before Benjamin would resume the supply, but they demanded a three percent price hike. By all accounts, she shouldn't have that much power, that Emmeline. "
