All were screaming and hiding; there was only one guard left beside the Maybach. He figured out the direction from where the bullets were coming from and shot there.
But it was too far away, and he didn’t hit the sniper, only the window.
Harry had already ran out of SL building, followed by his guards with shields in their hands.
Looking at the backseat of the Maybach, which had several holes in it, Harry became extremely worried.
The phone lost its signal inside the elevator and their call had been cut. He didn’t know how Lola was now.
He rushed towards the Maybach and he also aimed at the direction from where the bullets were coming from and shot. The shots coming from the window finally stopped and the guards surrounded the Maybach with their shields.
A wailing police siren was heard coming close to them, but Harry didn’t pay too much attention to it and hastily opened the backseats’ door.
Lola raised her head and looked at him. He had finally come! She felt more relieved, but by now she could feel the pain in her left arm stinging more and more.
“How are you? Have you been hurt? Tell me!” His voice quivered restless.
Lola shook her head and Harry calmed down.
“My arm…” She tried to raise her left arm.
Looking at her bloody left arm, he thought it might have been scraped by a bullet.
He was furious. Who had dared to try and kill his wife? He had to unmask the murderer and execute him with his own bare hands!
He asked the driver,”Can it still be driven?”
The driver attempted to start the car and nodded,”It can, Boss Si!”
He then immediately got inside the car, and ordered,”Drive to the hospital. Hurry!”
He lowered his head and looked closely at the wound on Lola’s arm.
He didn’t like what he saw. He tightly held the woman in his arms and comforted her. “It feel very painful. Please, hold on a little while longer.”
The rain of bullets was obviously aimed at killing her at all costs.
Who the hell was the murderer? Who would want to kill a pregnant woman?
Lola nodded, and said,”I’m in pain.” She moaned.
Harry gently kissed her forehead, and said,”Please, hold on, darling. We’ll arrive at the hospital soon.”
At that moment, his phone rang; it was Joey. Harry became stern again, and answered,”Speak.”
“Boss, when I reached the hotel, the murderer had already ran away. I investigated the check-in record, but no o
“You’re my wife in name only, on paper only. My heart and love will never be yours.”
Edward made it clear to Daisy that she was nothing to him. They were both victims of family greed — the marriage was arranged for them.
Six years passed. She remained quiet, gaining a reputation in the army as a tough-as-nails colonel. When she walked into his life again, Edward fell in love with this woman…
n, and said,”Were they really aiming for me?”
Harry then sat in one of the chairs, put Lola on his thigh, and said,”Don’t worry, I’ll sort it all out.” He kissed her lips, and said,”In the following days, if you want to go out, please let me know ahead; I will arrange for some people to protect you.”
They could not live a peaceful life as long as the murderer was still on the loose.
Security also needed to be strengthened in the manor, but it was impossible to let Lola always stay at home. All he could do was to arrest the murderer and dispatch more people to protect her until that happened.
She nodded to him, and put her hands around his neck. Harry gently asked,”Is your arm still hurting?” He gripped her left arm close to him and carefully checked on it.
“I’m okay. You should also be careful in the future.” She held Harry’s face and caressed it as she expressed her worry.
If something terrible were to happen to him, she would have her world torn apart.
“No problem, Mrs. Si. I will always firmly adhere to your words.” He smiled and gently patted Lola’s womb.
“You’ll have a pregnancy check-up later.” He would’ve accompanied her everywhere.
Lola leaned her head on Harry’s shoulder, and meekly replied,”OK.”
The planned pregnancy check-up should have been taken in the hospital but, however, Harry had asked Chuck to come to their home.
In the manor, Harry watched Lola taking the pregnancy check-up. The small apparatus that Chuck brought with him was already prepared for him by Harry in advance. It was the most advanced color ultrasound in the whole world.
