Chapter 1368: Ready to Cooperate
Can’t afford to offend, can’t afford to offend.
“I’ll give you ten seconds to think. If you refuse to talk, I’ll use this poison to wash your face.” Dustin maintained his smile.
While speaking, he uncorked the bottle and placed it above Roselyn’s head.
“No… Please don’t!”
Roselyn was so frightened that her legs went weak. Tears streamed down her face as she panicked, “Don’t ruin my face! I’ll talk, I’ll say everything, just take this thing away!”
“So you’re ready to cooperate?”
Dustin slowly withdrew the bottle.
People like this woman were truly remorseless until they met their doom.
Roselyn gasped for breath, took a while to regain her composure, and said weakly, “About Lorenzo’s secret, we have to go back a few years…
That day, a stranger suddenly arrived at our home and had a secret conversation with my grandfather. I overheard a bit through the door.
It turned out this guest was the one who saved Mr. Lorenzo ten years ago.”
“Wait! Wasn’t it your grandfather who saved Uncle Lorenzo?” Dustin suddenly interrupted.
“Accurately speaking, this person brought the severely injured Lorenzo to Healwell Medical Center, where my grandfather treated him. And every now and then, this person would secretly visit and inquire about Lorenzo’s condition from my grandfather,” Roselyn explained.
“Who is this person?” Dustin’s expression became serious.
He had always believed that it was Dr. Elijah who saved Lorenzo, but now it appeared that there was another hidden story.
“I don’t know.”
Roselyn shook her head. “I’ve never seen this person’s face. Whenever he came, my grandfather would ask me to stay away. That day, I was just too curious and eavesdropped.”
“What did you hear?” Dustin asked.
“I overheard that this person told my grandfather that they must save Lorenzo’s life at all costs and must not reveal his identity. Also, if anyone comes looking for him, they must immediately inform him to prevent any accidents,” Roselyn replied.
Hearing this, Dustin couldn’t help but furrow his brow.
It was evident that Dr. Elijah had been hiding something from him, or perhaps he hadn’t completely trusted him yet.
The biggest question now was the identity of this mysterious person.
The other person saved Lorenzo and then brought him to Dr. Elijah’s place, being so cautious about it. They must know something.
Dustin had a feeling that if he could find this mysterious person, the truth about what happened ten years ago would soon come to light.
“Is there any other information?” Dustin asked again.
“Oh, yes! I remember my grandfather calling that person… Mr. Whitaker!” Roselyn suddenly remembered.
“Mr. Whitaker?” Dustin thought for a moment.
As far as he knew, there was no prominent Whitaker family or high-ranking officials with the surname Whitaker in Stonia.
So, who was this Mr. Whitaker?
“Is there anything else?” Dustin asked.
“I… I only know this much, nothing else,” Roselyn replied nervously.
Dustin stared at her for a few seconds, confirming that she wasn’t lying before nodding. “Alright, considering the information you’ve provided, I won’t hold today’s events against you. But in the future, it’s best for both of you to behave honestly. If you ever try to cause trouble again, don’t blame me for turning my back on you.”
Roselyn nodded repeatedly, a hint of resentment flashing in her eyes.
After resolving the grudge, Dustin walked to Hazel’s car and smiled, “I want to thank you for your assistance today. It would be great if you could give us a ride a little further. It’s getting late, and it’s not easy to find a taxi.”
“It would be my pleasure.”
Hazel smiled charmingly and patted the seat beside her, excitedly saying, “Come on, handsome, into my arms.”
“By the way, you looked really fierce when you were reprimanding those wretches just now, and I really liked it.”
“How about spending the night at my place? My bed is big and soft, I guarantee you won’t want to leave.”
Why does this feel like walking into the lion’s den?
