I had come to the Black Stone Pack solely to uphold justice for Helen.Ever since we met, Helen had always been a kind, emphatic girl.I knew in my heart that she wouldn’t do anything to hurt a fly.
Besides, she was about to marry Daniel.
So why on earth would she want to kill Daniel’s father? There simply was no reasonably motivation for Helen to kill Marlon.
It was ridiculous to even assume she was the murderer.
This meant that someone had deliberately framed the innocent and kind-hearted Helen.And as a good friend of hers, I couldn’t stand by and watch her suffer.I had to help her, support her, and find out the truth for her.
Moreover, I couldn’t just let Marlon”s murder go unsolved.
“Oh, well, my late husband’s death really was strange.”
Faced with my direct questioning, Betty was obviously at a loss.
While I didn’t want to make things any more difficult for her, I still needed to get to the bottom of things.
“Please tell me everything,” I urged.
“Marlon died all of a sudden a couple of days ago.I refused to believe he would just leave me like that, so I asked the forensic doctor to run an autopsy.However, the result of the autopsy revealed that Helen’s perfume had poisoned Marlon…”
As she spoke about her husband’s death, Betty’s eyes were filled with sadness.She took out a handkerchief and dabbed her tears away.
“I wanted to believe that Helen is innocent.But I had no choice but to lock her up before finding evidence to prove it.After all, the perfume was hers.But now that both Elder Simon and Alpha Jerome are willing to swear on Helen’s innocence, Helen can be released from prison for the time being.I will wait for the investigation to unfold.”
“Okay, I see.Please show us the results of the autopsy and the perfume test.Can I also have a look at the perfume itself?”
After listening to Betty’s statement, I felt a little relieved.
Evidence proving Helen’s innocence was bound to show up sooner or later.
At least, for now, we could analyze what we had and start from there.
Betty quickly asked her attendant to bring the three things I wanted.
Minutes later, the autopsy report, the perfume test report, and the bottle of perfume were set on the table, one by one.
Anthony and I took a closer look at each of them.
“Jennifer, there’s something else.A drug was added into the perfume that killed my father, but I swear to *** that Mandy gave Helen the perfume.However, she refuses to admit it!”
Daniel’s eyes were red with hatred.
After leafing through the autopsy report, Anthony frowned.
“Mandy is the other suspect, am I right? Luna Betty, please call her here.I have something to ask her.”
However, before Betty could respond, an attendant entered the room.
“Luna Betty, Devin and Grace are here.”
“Devin is my older brother and Grace is his wife,” Daniel explained to us.
“Okay, let them in,” Anthony ordered.
Just now, Grace and I were at the church, paying our respects to my father.
Although my father deserved to die, I was the one who killed him.I was worried he would turn into a ghost and haunt me for the rest of my life, so I had no choice but to go to his coffin and pray for him.
Before I even finished my prayer, I overheard an attendant saying that Helen had been released from prison.How could that be? Shouldn’t she have been sentenced to death?!
“Luna Betty and Daniel came to visit Alpha Marlon earlier, along with the Alpha and Luna of the Rainbow Pack, Elder Simon, Helen’s father.It is said that they are close to Helen,” the attendant said to me upon inquiring.
When I heard this, I couldn’t help but feel flustered.
What? How could Helen be so close to the Alpha and Luna of her pack? Why were there so many werewolves backing her up here in person? After mulling it over in my mind, I came to the conclusion that the situation was headed to an unfavorable place.
Just as I was trying to figure out a way to stop the others from helping Helen, another attendant ran in.
“Prince Anthony has arrived with his mate.”
Instantly, I perked up.
Prince Anthony? He was the future king! But why was he here? Regardless, I needed to curry favor with the future king.
Only by pleasing him could I have a better future—and maybe I could finally be the Alpha of this pack.
Thinking of this, I took Grace with me to the Black Stone House to greet Anthony personally.
“Ah, it’s nice to meet you, Mr.Jones!” I saluted to Anthony flatteringly.
“My ***! You look so handsome in person.You truly deserve to be the future king.”
“Oh, my ***, and you are so elegant and dignified!” Grace praised Anthony’s mate.
“Enough! Stop the flattering.”
Despite our best efforts to flatter them, Anthony looked unhappy.
“Jennifer and I have some business to deal with.Please don’t disturb us.”
“Oh, I see.Is there any way I can help, Mr.Jones?” I asked with an apologetic smile, bowing slightly for effect.
“If you really want to help, then fine.Do you know who murdered your father?” Anthony asked calmly, locking eyes with me.
I didn’t expect that he would ask me such a pointed question.Did he know that it was me?
“What? No, I don’t know anything.Why do you ask, Mr.Jones?” I tried to deny it.
“How would Devin know? Helen is the prime suspect.She must’ve killed Alpha Marlon!”
Grace hurriedly came to my aid.
Daniel immediately stood up and pointed a finger at Grace.
“Helen is innocent!”
“The perfume was Helen’s. Isn’t that proof enough that she’s the murderer?” Grace retorted.
Daniel glared at Grace but said nothing.
Suddenly, Anthony stood up and shouted, sending a chill down my spine.
“Everyone, calm down.Quarrels won’t solve anything.”
“Mr.Jones, Mandy is here!”
my mother suddenly announced, pointing at the door.
‘’What? Mandy is here, too? ****!’’ My nerves were getting the better of me.
Mandy was an idiot.
I really didn’t believe she was smart enough to wiggle her way out of this sticky situation.
If she said something stupid in front of Anthony, how could I win his favor? **** it! **** it all to ****! Why did Anthony have to come at this critical moment? The reason why I framed Helen so was that I thought she had no friends in high places! I didn’t expect her to have so many connections.
First, the Alpha of the Rainbow Pack had come.
Now, so did the prince and future king of the Osman Kingdom.
Oh, my ***! The Black Stone Pack only lost an Alpha.
Why did the prince have to show up? As a member of the royal family, he didn’t have to come here in person.
He could’ve just sent his attendant here to pay his respects.
Why was he so indecisive? I was exasperated, but I could do nothing but to sit and wait.
Restless and helpless, a cold sweat trickled down my back.
“Mr.Jones, this is Mandy,” a guard announced.
I was so anxious beyond belief, but I can’t tell her to shut up in front of everyone.I could only look at her, and the stupid woman was also looking at me.I tried my best to wink at her subtly, hoping she would get the message.
‘’Don’t talk nonsense, or we’ll both be doomed”
Clenching my teeth, I was so scared that Mandy wouldn’t be able to withstand Anthony’s interrogation and would cave.
It was only a matter of time before my crime was exposed!
