Chapter 40: Poisoning
As the sun rose in the east, a thin layer of mist shrouded the sea.
Basked in the sunlight, the scene looked as beautiful as a fairytale land.
Jennifer was standing on the deck of the yacht.
A passing breeze blew up the hemline of her dress.
Her back was covered with love bites from last night.
I couldn’t help but smile as I walked over to her quietly.
I wrapped my arms around Jennifer’s waist from behind and held her tightly.
Jennifer instantly quivered in my arms and let out a small gasp.
I was touching a sensitive spot on her body that I discovered last night.
Every time I touched it, she would tremble and moan.
When she was so aroused that she couldn’t help but moan and gasp under me, there was no way I could restrain my desire.
“What are you doing here?”
I asked softly, leaning my head on her shoulder and kissing her on the back of her neck.
She trembled before turning around to look at me.
“I’m enjoying the scenery.Look, it’s so beautiful.”
She pointed at the sea in front of us with sparkling eyes.
“It’s not as beautiful as you,”
I said honestly, not taking my eyes off of her.Jennifer was really the most beautiful she-wolf that I had ever laid eyes on.Of course, it was her good character that had always drawn me to her.
“Thank you, Anthony.I love you so much.”
Jennifer’s face softened as she looked at me, and her eyes reddened a little with tears, perhaps because she was moved by my words.
Looking at her delicate and fragile appearance made me want to do my best to protect her.
It suddenly occurred to me that I didn’t actually know much about Jennifer’s past.
All I knew was that she had a difficult time in the Dark River Pack.
I had witnessed firsthand how members of the pack had ruthlessly bullied her.
No matter how she stubbornly ignored them or even fought back, there were always more werewolves showing up to make trouble for her.
I was sure that these experiences must be traumatic.
But I didn’t want to ruin the romantic atmosphere between us by bringing up those incidents now.
I didn’t mind waiting for her to take the initiative to tell me about her past.
After all, we had the whole future ahead of us.
Thinking of that, I couldn’t help but lean in and kiss Jennifer.
She was stunned for a moment, before she responded passionately and lightly bit my lower lip.
As the sea breeze blew around us, I felt the warmth of Jennifer’s soft lips sucking mine.
She was burning Maas, we were with the passion of fire.
Her tongue slipped into my mouth and she sucked the breath out of me, making me lose myself in the kiss.
My ***** shot up uncontrollably, and I couldn’t help but gasp, as if I was drowning underwater.
But this suffocating feeling was pleasant and filled with pleasure, without any fear.
I wished I could indulge in it forever.
“Jennifer, I love you,”
I said breathlessly, finally pulling away from the kiss.
Before I met Jennifer, I had never taken a liking to any she-wolf.
I hadn’t even known what love was.
I always felt disgusted with she-wolves who approached me, which gradually made me feel like my mate would never appear.
But when Jennifer walked into my life, she was like a force of nature, attracting me to her completely, and making me fall deeply in love with her.
When we returned to the cabin together, Jennifer changed into her training uniform.
Training would resume today.
“You can leave your other clothes and jewelry on the yacht,”I told her.
“From now on, this yacht is also yours.We can take it for a date next time, too.”
Jennifer flashed me a smile as she put away her things.
When she saw a pearl necklace on the dressing table, she seemed to remember something all of a sudden, and her face darkened.
“The necklace my mother left me is still in Barbara’s hands, but she has been driven out of Marge Island.I don’t know when I’ll be able to get that necklace back, if ever,” she said with a sigh.
Barbara? I remembered the quarrel between Jennifer and Barbara before we all left the Dark River Pack.
If I had known about this matter earlier, I would have retained Barbara here.
I decided to secretly go back to the Dark River Pack later to retrieve Jennifer’s necklace, so that I could give her a surprise.
“Jennifer, from now on, I’ll be with you no matter what you want to do.I’ll help you take back everything you have lost.Trust me, okay?”
“Of course I will,”
Jennifer replied without skipping a beat.I nodded.I held Jennifer in my arms, feeling a little sorry for her.
I didn’t let her go until our yacht arrived at Marge Island.
After Jennifer left to attend the training, I set off to the Dark River Pack to help Jennifer take back the necklace.
Was there something wrong with my eyes? I just saw Jennifer and Prince Anthony get off a yacht together.
And he was holding that ***** in his arms!No wonder I had not seen Jennifer in the past two days even though I kept hanging out at the door of her room.
It turned out that she had gone somewhere with Anthony.I hid behind a bush where the two of them couldn’t see me.
“Jennifer, I have something to deal with outside the island.Take care of yourself while I’m away,”
Anthony said to Jennifer.
And he even kissed her on the forehead before he left.
That night, when Anthony stood up for Jennifer at the masquerade, I thought that he just treated her as a *** partner.
But now, it seemed that he genuinely cared about her.
Well, no matter what he treated this ***** as, as long as he was with her, I would never have a chance to hurt her, so I had to wait for the opportunity.
Anthony watched until Jennifer was out of sight before going back to the yacht and asking his attendants to start the yacht again.
Now that he left the island, I knew that my chance came.
I didn’t come out from behind the bush until the yacht disappeared from my sight.
I managed to get a bag of silver powder from outside the island, which I intended to secretly make Jennifer take.
This silver powder was deadly to a werewolf.
I couldn’t fail like last time, nor could I let myself be discovered.
I had to find someone to be my scapegoat.
But who could it be? When I went back to the dormitory building, I heard a girl crying.
“How could this be possible? How could Mr.Jones fall in love with a slave? Jennifer is such a *****.I hate her so much!”
I walked over curiously and found the source of the voice—Anna.
I knew that she hated Jennifer almost as much as I did.
Every time I tried to stir up trouble for Jennifer, Anna was the one who would stand out to support me.
Moreover, she was deeply infatuated with Anthony and had been dreaming of the day he would return her feelings.
But the night before yesterday, he publicly announced that he liked Jennifer, so Anna was obviously heartbroken.
“Cheer up, Anna.Instead of hiding here and crying, we should find a way to drive that ***** away!”
There was another she-wolf sitting beside Anna, comforting her.
Whoever this girl was, I agreed with her.
What was the point of crying? Could crying solve a problem? Instead of crying here, Anna should find a way to get rid of Jennifer without being noticed.
“**** it! How dare Jennifer seduce Mr.Jones?”
Anna was still cursing in a low voice.
Yes, a girl like Jennifer deserved to die.
At this moment, I felt inconceivably lucky.
I happened to need a scapegoat, and Anna was perfect for the job.
Moreover, she seemed simple-minded, which would make it easier for me to manipulate her.
All I needed to do was find a way to make her kill Jennifer for me.
Even if she ended up failing, she would not be able to implicate me.
But of course, I didn’t want her to fail. It suddenly occurred to me that I could make use of her to drug Jennifer.
I covered my stomach with my hands and appeared in front of the she-wolves, pretending to be in a lot of pain.
“Girls, I took a laxative by accident yesterday.I’ve been suffering from vomiting and diarrhea since then.Do you know how to deal with this?”
“Well, you should go to the hospital.What can we do?” the other she-wolf asked, annoyed by my interruption.
She had no interest in my words.However, Anna abruptly stopped crying and seemed to be lost in thought.
Her voice was very low, and her eyes were shining brightly.
It seemed that the idea of drugging Jennifer had already occurred to her.Hook, line, and sinker.
It seemed that Anna had disliked Jennifer for a long time now, but Anthony’s words pushed her hatred over the edge.
Although this idiot wasn’t ruthless enough and only wanted to torture Jennifer instead of killing her, I could use her to my advantage.
I continued to cover my stomach with my hands and staggered out of the building as if I was in unbearable pain, but in fact, I was overjoyed.
A woman’s jealousy was really the sharpest weapon in the world.
Jennifer could not blame me.
She could only blame herself for having too many enemies.
I secretly watched Anna for the next few days.
She went to the store and bought some laxative.
Then, she began to observe Jennifer’s routine, including her daily schedule.
One morning, when I saw Anna enter the restaurant that Jennifer often visited, I knew that she was finally going to take action.
Jennifer and Daniel were sitting by the window, and it seemed that they had already ordered their food.
It was so easy to drug Jennifer, because every time she came here, she would order the same dishes.
If she knew that she would die from eating her favorite food today, what would she do? I saw Anna disguise herself as a waitress before secretly sprinkling some powder on Jennifer’s plate, mixing it with the food.
Another waitress, who was unaware that the food had been drugged, took the plate and served it to Jennifer.
As I watched the whole scene, I couldn’t help but praise Anna in my head.
‘Well done, Anna, you’re a great scapegoat.’ Without her knowing, I had been following her since the day she had bought the laxative.
Fortunately, she had stopped on the way to buy some clothes.
As soon as she had entered the fitting room, I had taken the chance to add the silver powder into the laxative.
Anna never discovered that the laxative she had was laced with silver powder.
She was so stupid! I couldn’t wait to finally see Jennifer die.
