Submitting To My Billionaire Ex-Wife by Allison Mild Chapter 132

Chapter 132

Amid the vast sea, there wasn’t much difference between making one or three people disappear.

Johnson convulsed violently from head to toe, having sensed Anthony’s intention. He really wants me dead! he thought.

In a flash, fear washed over Johnson, and he shouted at the top of his lungs, “I’ll tell you, Mr. Hoffman…”

The dark

that crashed against the cruise ship’s hull made heavy thuds while every hair on Johnson’s body stood on end from fright.

The bodyguards observed the gloomy and unmoving Anthony, who simply gazed at the distant sea

in silence.

Terrified, Johnson quickly confessed, “I tied her up outside the window. She was right outside when you went in!”

His voice was hoarse, panicked, and even cracked.

Anthony’s expression instantaneously changed as intense coldness surged in his eyes.

The bodyguards threw Johnson on the deck, leaving him to curl up on the ground and scream in pain.

Anthony walked over grimly, looking down from above as he demanded in an ice–cold voice, “Say that again!”

No longer daring to lie and feign ignorance, Johnson answered with difficulty while convulsing, “When you went in, I was afraid you’d find her, so I tied her outside the window. But then the rope came undone afterward, and she was gone…”

He, too, regretted his decision to go after Genevieve. Had it not been for that, he wouldn’t have fallen into his current predicament.

Johnson slumped on the ground in agony and cried bitterly, “Mr. Hoffman, I didn’t want her to die. I swear! I was just afraid to be caught by you. I planned to drag her back after you leave, but I really don’t know why she’s gone!”

Unbeknownst to him, the faces of the two women nearby had turned exceedingly dark..

Lauraine, panic–stricken, was trembling all over with a face as white as a sheet, unable to say a single word.

Anthony blanched as well, feeling an overwhelming pain in his chest that left his breathing labored. as if something had hit his heart hard.

‘In other words, when I stormed into Room 602 to look for Genevieve, she was actually tied up outside the window.

‘She was right outside, just a few feet away, and yet I didn’t realize it! I didn’t notice anything!‘ he

brooded.

The knowledge that she was practically within reach engulfed Anthony in regret. In an instant, a heavy weight that was enough to crush his heart settled in his chest.

He clenched his jaw as his face turned cold, his gaze darkening. The overwhelming emotions in his eyes showed how close he was to losing it.

The whole cruise ship had been searched; there was no way Genevieve was still hidden somewhere

here.

‘Lauraine said Louis jumped, but why? What did he see?‘ ruminated Anthony,

Instantly, all kinds of thoughts flooded his mind. Anthony’s heart sank even lower as his face turned grimmer.

Even though he didn’t want to admit it and still held a bit of hope that pressing Johnson here would give him answers, that ominous thought was starting to feel like reality.

If Genevieve’s rope had snapped, and she had fallen on the packed cruise ship, it was impossible that it could’ve gone unnoticed.

As such, the only other possibility was that she didn’t fall on the cruise ship but directly into the sea.

The overall structure of this cruise ship was like an inverted trapezoid, with a wide top and narrow bottom. The chances of her being discovered were way too slim.

Anthony’s heart clenched in pain as dense beads of sweat formed on his forehead. His fear made him unable to face this harsh reality.

After all, the surprise he meticulously planned for her had led her to tragedy. It was only understandable that he couldn’t accept it.

Alas, the affection he realized he had for Genevieve had come too late. He didn’t even know how long ago it was exactly that she’d taken root in his heart, occupying the most important position.

“Who told you to do that? Answer me!” With ferocious, bloodshot eyes, Anthony grabbed Johnson by the collar frigidly.

His emotions had become completely uncontrollable now as though he might destroy everything at any time.

Johnson was already on his last legs from the torture. Anthony’s violent action made him involuntarily tilt his head back and hit the ground.

With that, Johnson passed out

Thereafter, Anthony frenziedly tried to stimulate and wake Johnson up, though it seemed more. like he was finding an outlet to vent his

rage.

However, Johnson simply lay motionless on the ground, virtually about to take his dying breath. As it was the first time Lauraine saw her brother acting this way, she couldn’t help but cry out in

Chapter 132

fright.

Rushing over, she grabbed Anthony’s arm tremblingly and urged, “Tony, stop it. He could die!”

Anthony wanted to shake her off, but right then, a massive wave hit the cruise ship and shook it.

This made him involuntarily fall outward, hitting the railing. As long as he let go of his grip, he’d

fall into the sea and vanish.

Just let go. She’s waiting for you down there. With the child, he mused.

And then, he did just that.

But the moment he released his grip. Andrea, who was standing not far away, immediately grabbed

his arm.

The rescue boats searched for 24 hours without any success. Louis and Genevieve, like drops of water, had fallen into the vast sea and were nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, Lauraine and Andrea stayed by Anthony’s side without sleeping.

Lauraine, guilt–ridden and terrified, felt as though there was a knife hanging over her head that could drop at any juncture.

She feared that if Johnson woke up and ratted out Andrea, her own affairs would also be exposed.

When she went out to the bathroom, Lauraine told Andrea about her worries.

Andrea shot Lauraine a meaningful glance and comforted her, telling her not to overthink, then told Lauraine to check on Anthony with the doctor.

The longer time passed, the more secure Andrea felt, and the safer she was.

‘So long as Genevieve and Louis are dead, no one will suspect me, she thought.

Taking a deep breath, she wiped her hands and turned to exit, heading opposite where Lauraine

went.

When Andrea arrived at a cabin below, the bodyguards at the door were much politer when they saw her. After all, she had saved Anthony when he was in danger earlier.

The other bodyguards present hadn’t had time to grab their boss because they were too far away at

the time.

With a faint smile, Andrea said gently, “T’d like to ask Johnson about Ms. Lawrence so that we can give Mr. Hoffman an answer when he wakes up. We can’t possibly delay this forever, yeah?”

The bodyguards exchanged glances, slightly hesitant.

Andrea added, “Don’t worry/It won’t take long.”

Hence, they opened the door for her.

Andrea thanked them politely and then walked in with a smile that instantaneously vanished once she closed the door.

Johnson was curled up weakly on the ground, his face swollen and bruised. Even breathing was a chore for him now.

He had regained consciousness from his brief blackout and was looking at the door dazedly.

When Andrea came in, a chill coursed through Johnson.

His dazed eyes regained clarity as his breathing became rapid from nervousness. “I… I didn’t say anything!”
