Chapter 906 Stupid Criminal
As Alexander watched the crowd leave, he silently held onto Elise’s hand and said seriously, “Looks like Prince Caleb is still unaware of the situation.” If the prince knew better, he wouldn’t look disappointed when Margaret was exposed.
“He doesn’t seem to understand that his country will never be able to win, even if Smith Co. and I don’t exist. At this point, the best thing to do is to find a strong companion rather than to fight against them.” As Elise spoke, she felt that Prince Caleb and his citizens were short-sighted.
“An arrogant person will only notice their mistake when they fall hard. Those who looked down on my wife are destined to fail, so you don’t have to pity them,” Alexander whispered as he ruffled her hair.
“You’re right. Prince Caleb is the one to blame since he couldn’t tell that I’m a diamond in the rough.” As Elise spoke, she looked proud.
At nighttime, Danny and Ariel walked out of the store together and decided to take a stroll on the same old path they had gone through multiple times. It felt different, however, for they did not go through the space as business partners but as a duo who enjoyed each other’s presence.
Looking at the starry night, Danny couldn’t help but rejoice about how far they had come. “If only I could hold you like this forever and not think or do anything else. That would be great.”
Hearing his words, Ariel teased him. “Are you sure you aren’t going to do anything?”
Immediately, Danny took the bait and walked in front of her, and blocked her path. Then, he said seriously, “Let’s go back. We’ll drive home.”
“Why? I thought we were going to experience different kinds of dating methods. Are you in a rush?” Ariel acted dumb and walked past him. She had her hands behind her as she continued to step forward.
Looking at her, Danny felt like he was being seduced. Then, he walked sideways like a crab and said, “There’s no need to rush if we were to go out on a date. However, we should head home earlier if we still have something else to do, right? Let’s go home, babe, okay?”
“Do you have anything to do?” Ariel continued to act dumb as she suppressed her laughter and looked at him innocently.
The more innocent she looked, the burning desire in Danny increased. Then, he trapped her against the fence and stared at her with a heated gaze. “You know what I’m talking about, Ariel. Don’t act dumb. I want to…”
As Ariel listened to his words, her beautiful eyes shone brightly. Her eyes were like a void, sucking Danny into it, causing him to gulp hardly. Then, she made a bold attempt to caress his throat with her fingers.
“What do you want? How can I satisfy you if you don’t tell me? Hmm?” Ariel was seducing him as she spoke. Still, she was looking at Danny flirtatiously the whole time, not afraid to meet his lusted eyes.
At that moment, Danny’s face was flushed, and the veins at the back of his hand were bulging as he suppressed his desire forcefully. He had fallen hard for her trap. The harder he fell, the harder it was for him to snap out from it.
After some time, he reluctantly let go of Ariel, but his eyes were still filled with lust. Then, he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her into his embrace as he looked down at her. “You are such a sexy minx.”
Hearing his words, Ariel was not afraid, and she even wrapped her arms around his neck. “Are you afraid of a mere minx?”
“Don’t tell me to go slow later!”
When Danny saw that she was in a daze, he seized the opportunity and carried her bridal style as he marched toward the parking lot.
“Put me down! Danny!” Ariel didn’t expect him to lose his cool.
“We’ll talk about it after you get what you deserve.” As Danny spoke, he didn’t spare a glance at her and quickened his pace.
If they weren’t outside and were at home, he would have made love to Ariel. Her breath, her scent, and her body—everything about her enticed him.
Soon, they arrived at the parking lot. After Danny had put her in the passenger seat, he closed the door and walked toward the driver seat. As soon as he opened the door, he stopped his actions and looked in the rear mirror. From the rear mirror view, he could see a black figure standing behind the pillar not far away. After a moment, Danny regained his senses and maintained composure as he got into the car. Then, he immediately started the engine and drove toward the exit.
As expected, a black business car was trailing behind him. When Ariel noticed that he looked serious, her face turned solemn. Out of habit, she observed the car behind them through the rearview mirror. It was not the first time they had experienced such a situation in the past seven years, so they were used to it.
After observing for a moment, Ariel came to a logical conclusion. “They are being cautious about it. It looks like they are not aggressive.”
“Well, then. Let’s greet them, shall we?” As Danny spoke, he looked at the map on his GPS. Then, he was calm and confident when he raised his head.
On the other hand, as the man in the business car noticed that the vehicle in the front was speeding up, he raised the brim and sped up. Just as he was focusing on Danny’s whereabouts, he didn’t expect Danny to take a sharp turn and go into an alley after an intersection. Since the man drove too fast, he drove past the alleyway and could only stop the car in a hurry. Then, he reversed his car and drove into the alleyway as fast as possible. To his surprise, the alleyway was about fifty meters. Just as he sped up his car, he noticed that it was a dead end.
“F*ck!” The man cursed and stepped on the brake hard. However, he still crashed against the fence, and almost half of his car was dangling on the lake. Just as he moved and was about to unfasten his seatbelt, he felt the car tilted toward the lake. At that moment, he kept quiet and stopped moving.
Just as he was about to turn on his AI mechanism and call the police, he heard a gloating voice.
“Another stupid criminal,” the spokesperson said.
In that split second, the car door was opened, and Danny grabbed the man out of the car and threw him on the floor. At the same time, the car lost its balance and sank into the lake.
As the man looked at the lake, he sucked a sharp breath. After all, no one would notice if he drowned. When he was found, his body would be icy cold. At that moment, he knew that he owed Danny and Ariel a favor.
As the man was in thought, Danny interrogated him with a stern expression as he propped himself with both hands on his knees. “Hey, you! Who do you work for?” He wanted to see which rivals of his had summoned such poorly skilled subordinates.
