Chapter 522 The Final Truth Must Be Cruel!
After Nora sent the message, Trueman replied: “Give him the medicine first.”
This person knew how to bargain.
She looked at Morris.
After all, they were in the special department. If Morris did not agree, this deal could not be completed.
Morris was silent for a moment. There was a look of deep thought on the man’s determined face. Then he nodded, his cold facial features filled with determination. “Ok.”
The two of them arrived at the storage area and saw the medicine Caleb had taken out when he was detained.
Nora looked at the medicine bottle. It was a medicine to treat coughs and also had some function to clear the lungs. In order to prevent Caleb from hurting himself, she even specially opened the medicine and took a look. The medicine inside was a mid-tier drug. She crushed a pill, smelled it, and tasted it. Finally, she nodded at Morris to confirm that the medicine was fine.
Morris turned around and brought Nora to the interrogation room.
The two of them came to the innermost interrogation room, completely made of metal. No matter how strong the person inside was, they could not escape.
Morris pushed open the dark iron door, making a creaking sound.
Nora saw Caleb sitting there immediately.
He placed his hands in front of him obediently and lowered his head. When he heard the sound, he did not turn around. It was as if nothing around him had anything to do with him.
He was coughing and holding a piece of tissue in his hand. There were traces of blood on the tissue.
“Cough, cough, cough!… Cough, cough, cough!”
The entire interrogation room was filled with his coughing sounds, making one feel uncomfortable.
She picked up a paper cup and took a cup of water from the water dispenser beside her. Then, she walked to Caleb and placed the medicine in front of him before handing him the water.
Caleb took the water and medicine. His hands were trembling slightly as he lowered his head and said, “Thank you.”
This was the first thing Caleb had said after he was arrested.
Nora replied, “You’re welcome.”
Caleb’s fingers paused slightly. Then, he looked up in surprise. When he saw Nora, he seemed to freeze.
Hesitation appeared in his eyes. Then, he returned to normal and took the medicine.
After taking the medicine, he drank the entire cup of water.
Seeing that Caleb still seemed to be coughing, Nora took the cup and walked to the water dispenser at the side. She helped him get another cup of water and handed it over again. Caleb stared at the cup and his gaze landed on Nora’s slender and fair fingers.
He was silent for a moment before taking the cup and drinking again. However, he did not look at her again as if he was unfamiliar with her.
Nora looked at his expression and was slightly stunned.
The next moment, she realized. If the two of them acted too familiar, perhaps it would arouse the suspicions of the special department? That was why he was deliberately cold to her.
Nora hesitated for a moment before sitting opposite him.
Morris had already closed the door, cutting off the probing outside.
He sat down with Nora and took out a notebook and pen. It seemed like he needed to prepare some statements. “Mr. Gray, may I know what your relationship with Trueman is?”
Caleb coughed, but it was clearly much lighter than before. It should be because of the two glasses of water and the medicine.
He looked up at the two of them. “You don’t have to rack your brains to interrogate me. I won’t say anything. I have nothing to do with Trueman.”
The moment he said this, Morris said coldly, “If that’s the case, why would he text Nora to give you medicine? A person like him doesn’t care about the lives of others, but he gives you special treatment!”
Trueman was a very cold-blooded person.
So far, he had killed four people.
One of them was Abigail, and the other was Victor. After the two of them were defeated by Nora, one died on the spot, and the other was arrested. In the end, they died in their cells.
Then, he gave Hillary the drug, and she died from pain.
He even killed Yvonne.
Now, the other bodyguards were being tortured in all sorts of ways, but he did not care at all. He only cared for a sickly Caleb.
As soon as Morris finished speaking, Caleb suddenly raised his head. He stared at Morris and Nora in disbelief. Then, he said with a trembling voice, “Don’t make any deals with him!”
This sentence was filled with vigilance.
Morris hesitated for a moment and glanced at Nora.
Obviously, it was good progress now that Caleb was speaking after Nora entered!
Morris interrogated him. “Why? He only asked Miss Smith to give you medicine, and then he would answer some of her questions. This doesn’t seem to do Miss Smith any harm!”
Caleb’s expression became nervous. He said to Nora again, “Listen to me. Don’t make any deals with him!”
She frowned. “You should be more concerned about yourself!”
Caleb took a deep breath. He still lowered his head. Even in the dark interrogation room, he looked gentlemanly and refined.
His voice was rich and powerful. “Miss Smith, Captain Ford, you don’t have to waste your effort on me. I still say the same thing. I won’t say anything. You can torture me… Cough, cough, cough…”
A flurry of coughs interrupted him.
He coughed violently, looking as if he was going to cough his lungs out. It was unbearable to watch.
After this bout of coughing passed, he said, “My broken body is already riddled with holes. I won’t be afraid of any pain, so your torture is useless against me. Of course, you can try… Cough, cough, cough…” Nora and Morris looked at each other.
Without even trying, they knew that this violent cough would tear someone’s throat apart. His organs would definitely be very uncomfortable. At this time, any other stimulation would be good for him. He could divert his attention.
Looking at Caleb’s body, he would probably not be able to survive if he was tortured too much.
This was also one of the reasons why Morris had not used torture.
Nora stood up and walked to Caleb. She reached out and pressed his wrist.
Caleb wanted to pull his wrist out, but Nora used a little strength and he could not break free. He could only frown and say, “Miss Smith, it’s useless even if you try. If it was possible, I would have let you treat me a long time ago. Cough, cough, cough…”
Nora frowned and ordered, “…Shut up.”
Alternative medicine practitioners hated it when patients moved or talked. They had to be calm. Her fierce words made Caleb choke. He could not even cough.
Time passed by slowly. Nora frowned tightly.
She looked at Caleb in disbelief. She seemed a little indignant as she closed her eyes again and continued to take his pulse.
A minute later, Nora opened her eyes in surprise.
Caleb retracted his hand silently and covered his mouth with the tissue beside him again. Because he was holding back his cough, his mouth tasted like blood.
He let out a shaky breath and some blood sprayed on the tissue.
It looked like he was going to vomit blood and die the next second…
Morris asked, “How is it?”
After learning that Nora was Dr. Zabe’s disciple, Morris trusted her medical skills even more.
Nora hesitated for a moment. Just as she was thinking what to say, Caleb said slowly, “End-stage lung cancer. I know.” Nora: “…”
She looked at Caleb in shock.
Caleb smiled. “I knew about this illness before I returned to the country, so I haven’t asked you to take a look at it. It’s useless because there aren’t any good anti-cancer drugs.”
Nora’s mouth tightened.
Caleb coughed again and wiped the corner of his mouth. “You don’t have to look at me like that. I know I won’t live past thirty.”
He was 29 years and 10 months old now. He only had two months to live.
Furthermore, lung cancer was a very torturous disease.
Actually, dying early was a form of relief.
Of course, he did not say that.
Nora nodded at Morris.
Morris’s expression instantly darkened. Facing such a patient, the Special Case Department had no other means.
He looked at the guard at the door and said, “From now on, set a fixed time every day. Remember to give him medicine.”
After giving his instructions, he then looked at Nora and gave her a look. Nora nodded.
She stood up. “Mr. Gray, you… have a good rest.”
With that, she walked out with Morris.
However, just as she reached the door, she suddenly heard Caleb’s voice. “Miss Smith, I have something to say to you.”
Nora looked at him. “Please speak.”
Caleb was silent for a long time before finally saying, “There may be some stones better left unturned because the truth will definitely be cruel.”
The truth was cruel…
Was he implying something?
Nora clenched her fists. “What do you mean?”
Caleb lowered his head, looking like he would not speak again. Nora left the interrogation room full of thoughts.
She arrived at the lobby of the special department with Morris. Then, Nora took out her phone and sent a message to Trueman. “He has taken the medicine. Do you need me to send you a video to prove it?”
Trueman replied quickly: “No need.”
Nora: “Then where’s my answer?”
Trueman’s reply this time was a little slow. He was probably editing the content. It took him five minutes to send a message. When she saw his answer, Nora’s eyes widened in shock…
