I rushed over to Jennifer and pulled her into my arms before she fell to the floor.
Infuriated, my eyes widened as I glared at Mandy as if I was going to strangle her.
After all, Jennifer was pregnant with our child.
Daniel was right about Mandy being an unhinged she- wolf.She must have lost her mind.
How could she push a pregnant woman like that? Jennifer was trying to protect Helen from Mandy.
I thought that despite her arrogant disposition, Mandy wouldn’t be foolish enough to try and hurt Jennifer.
If anything bad happened to Jennifer or our child, I would let Mandy die.I clenched my fists, stifling the urge to strangle Mandy with my own hands.
“Anthony, calm down,” Jennifer said as she held my hand.
She seemed to have noticed my anger.
I took a deep breath and looked away from Mandy.
Judging from what had happened just now, I could tell that Mandy was very jealous of Helen.
She was a loud- mouthed, thoughtless she-wolf, who wasn’t even worthy of my time.
However, I couldn’t let her get away after what she did.
“Catch her and don’t let her get away!”
Betty finally came to her senses and shouted at the guards.
The guards rushed forward, pressing Mandy to the floor, and finally subdued her.
“I’m sorry, Mr.Jones! I’m so sorry.I didn’t expect her to go crazy all of a sudden!”
Betty’s face turned pale.She fell to her knees before me with her head bowed.
“It’s my fault for failing to discipline Mandy.I’m sorry, Mr.Jones.This won’t happen again!”
“Jennifer, are you okay? How are you feeling now? What about the baby?”
I didn’t even look at Betty because I was so angry.She should have known better than to give Mandy a chance to make trouble.
“Call the doctors over.”
“I feel a little uncomfortable, but I can’t tell where the pain is,” Jennifer replied, putting her hands on her belly.
“Anthony, will our baby be okay?”
“Don’t be afraid, Jennifer.The doctors will be here soon!”
I held her hand nervously as I didn’t know what to do either.
In truth, I was worried sick about her and the baby’s health.
Jennifer hadn’t fully recovered yet after we came back from the snow mountain.She almost fainted the other day at the banquet.
“Mr.Jones, please bring Jennifer to sit on the sofa!” Simon suggested.
“Anthony, the doctors are on their way!” Skylar and Jerome came with anxious looks on their faces.
“Jennifer, are you okay? Try to sit down first!” I held Jennifer’s hand and sat her down on the sofa.
Before long, an entourage of doctors arrived with medical kits and started conducting a_ full-body examination on Jennifer.
I waited anxiously in the corner, praying for no harm to come to Jennifer or the baby.
“I’m sorry, Mr.Jones.Jennifer was just trying to protect me, but he ended up getting hurt.”
Helen looked at me apologetically.
“It’s not your fault.You had nothing to do with it.If there’s anyone to blame, it should be Mandy.”
I tried to make her feel better.
Helen nodded and looked at Jennifer with tears in her eyes, while Daniel stood beside her, smoothening her disheveled hair.
We were all anxiously waiting for the results of the doctors’ examination.
“Mr.Jones, there’s nothing to worry about.Jennifer is fine.We gave her some medicine for the shock, but all she needs is some rest.The baby is also doing well,” said one of the doctors.
“Thank you very much.”
I finally breathed a sigh of relief.I bent over and grabbed Jennifer’s hand.
There was a scratch on her arm, and it was bleeding.
“Please treat the wound for her.By the way, Helen is also injured.Don’t forget to check on her,” I told the doctors seriously.
Then I looked at Betty, who was fidgeting restlessly.
“Luna Betty, please bring Mandy here.”
“All right.Please, don’t be mad,” Betty replied in a hurry.
“Feel free to do as you wish with her.”
Betty winked at the guards and before long they brought Mandy before me.
She was curled up in a fetal position, trebling like a leaf and crying.I hated her, even more, when I saw her like this.Where did all that arrogance go? Was she pretending to be scared now?
“Mandy, do you confess to your crimes?” I stood beside Jennifer and asked coldly.
“Mr.Jones! I…1 really didn’t mean it! I was just trying to catch Helen, but it was never my intention to hurt your mate!” Mandy cried.
What she said made me angrier than I already was.What gave her the right to think that she could hurt Helen?
“Jennifer is my mate and the future queen.She is pregnant with the future heir of the royal family.You attempted to murder the future queen and royal heir.Treason is a capital crime,” I said expressionlessly.
How could it be? I just wanted to teach Helen a lesson.
Admittedly, I shouldn’t have lashed out like that, but I couldn’t tolerate seeing Daniel stand up for her like that.
How was I supposed to know that Jennifer would get hurt so easily? **** it! Why were they blaming me? If it weren’t for Helen, none of this would have happened in the first place.
If anyone deserved to be blamed, it was Helen.
How was I supposed to know that Jennifer was pregnant with the prince’s child? Why was she roaming around with the prince if she was pregnant? What was I going to do? Was I going to be executed?I couldn’t go up against the royal family.
The only choice I had was to beg for mercy.
After all, I didn’t want to die.I still had a font to look forward to in life.
“Daniel! Please help me.Isn’t Mr.Jones your friend? Please talk to him for me.”
I threw myself at Daniel’s feet and begged him.
“Mandy, I am not going to help you this time.” Daniel looked at me coldly.
“Besides, you tried to hurt Helen. Why should I help you?”
“It’s no use seeking mercy right now.Stop wasting everyone’s time.I just have one question for you, Mandy.Do you plead guilty?” Anthony asked me coldly.
“Mr.Jones, I know I was wrong to behave the way I did.I promise that it will never happen again! Please forgive me, Mr.Jones!”
I cried and desperately begged Anthony to change his mind.
“All right.I’ll give you one last chance to make things right.” Anthony stared at me.
“I’ll ask you one more time.Did you give the perfume to Helen? If you tell me the truth, perhaps I can consider sparing your life.Otherwise, I will sentence you to death for attempting to murder the future heir to the throne.”
I was at a loss for words.I glanced at Devin expectantly, only to find him turning his head away from me.I would never forget that Devin did nothing to help me in my time of need.
He promised that I would be fine, but what was going on now? I could tell that Devin was a coward who was just as afraid of Anthony as everyone else.
He wouldn’t dare to speak up to the prince for me.
Such being the case, telling the truth was the only way for me to survive.
Much to my chagrin, Helen had the prince’s support, but I didn’t have anyone to back me up.
I knew that death awaited me once Anthony found out the truth.
It was no use trying to frame Helen anymore.
Thinking of this, I looked up at Anthony.
“I confess.I gave the perfume to Helen!”
As soon as I finished speaking, I pointed at Devin in the crowd.
“But Devin was the one who gave me the perfume and asked me to give it to Helen.”
