Chapter 134

When Johnson, who was struggling nearby, grabbed the long pole, Andrea exerted force and stabbed it into his chest..

Dark red blood instantaneously permeated the sea.

Johnson looked at her in shock and panic, his gaze full of indignation and hatred.

The next second, Andrea let go of her hand and shouted flusteredly, “Help!”

When the bodyguards came with reinforcements, Johnson had already disappeared from view.

The only thing that could be seen was the dark red liquid on the sea’s surface that had yet to dissipate.

Everyone was appalled.

Andrea, blanching in fear, covered her face and cried, “I told him to grab it, but he insisted on yanking it and ended up accidentally stabbing himself. Then, he sank under. What do we do now? Quickly save him!”

The leader of the bodyguards looked beyond grim. “He’s probably dead. Send people to go down. and search. I’ll inform Mr. Hoffman about this.”

The fact that Johnson had died on their watch without even leaving his corpse behind was in itself a troubling matter. They couldn’t explain it to Anthony.

T’ll go with you guys,” Andrea said with red eyes.

Meanwhile, Anthony had yet to wake up in his room. The doctor came out somberly alongside Lauraine. “Mr. Hoffman’s condition is severe. He seems to have suffered a huge blow and has severe head trauma. He needs to go to the hospital stat for examination.”

“But…” Lauraine began apprehensively.

Andrea stepped forward and interjected, “Let’s listen to the doctor. Mr. Hoffman’s health is what’s important.”

Lauraine nodded.

The bodyguards also agreed. One said, “Ms. Hoffman, we’ll have the ship turned around. immediately. As for the recovery of Johnson’s body, we’ll leave people behind to take care of it.”

Stunned, Lauraine looked up. “Johnson’s body?”

She looked incredulously at Andrea, who lowered her head weakly.

The bodyguard answered, “When Ms. Thomson went to see him, he took her as a hostage but accidentally slipped and fell into the sea. He’s presumed dead now.”

‘Fell into the sea?‘ parrojed Lauraine inwardly. Those words made her expression change

significantly.

She couldn’t really describe her feelings. After all, not long ago, she was still worried that she would be implicated if Johnson woke up.

‘But now, he’s dead?‘ she pondered.

Lauraine was really shaken, feeling chills run down her spine. A sense of horror overcame her, even disrupting her breathing.

Her fear intensified as she stared at Andrea’s weak appearance.

Andrea was the only one who worried more about being ratted out by Johnson than Lauraine.

‘Andrea definitely didn’t go looking for Johnson just to talk. She must have something to do with his death, thought Lauraine.

Nonetheless, Lauraine couldn’t say anything about it, for she and Andrea were in the same boat.

After a while of panic, she quickly nodded. “Okay, you handle that. Hurry and turn the ship around. now. We need to get to the hospital.”

She didn’t want to stay on this cruise ship anymore. It really traumatized her.

That night, the cruise ship returned to the port, and Anthony was taken to the hospital.

Lauraine returned to the Hoffman residence without saying anything, having developed a high. fever.

Andrea, on the other hand, stayed in the hospital to look after Anthony.

Time passed day by day, and the news of Genevieve’s disappearance could no longer be suppressed.

After all, many people were there that day, and all of them came back except for Genevieve and Louis.

Anthony’s men had already stopped searching after yielding no result for 36 hours.

Nobody had hope anymore, for it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, a complete waste of effort.

Soon, news reached the Lawrence family like a bolt from the blue.

Darrell fainted several times, looking extremely wan. Jeffrey also enlisted the help of many people to ask about what had transpired.

Meanwhile, Samantha, unusually composed, took Jeffrey to the hospital where Anthony was.

The floor of Anthony’s ward was heavily guarded.

As he was still unconscious, the Hoffman family members took turns to visit him since he was closely tied to Hoffman Group’s interests.

Chapter 134

Spotting Jeffrey, Quincey assumed he was here to visit Anthony, so she didn’t ask anyone to stop

him.

She was briefly taken aback when Jeffrey appeared with Samantha, but she quickly greeted them with an eager, polite smile. “Ah, Mrs. Lawrence, Mr. Lawrence, you guys are here. Thanks for coming, but sadly, Anthony hasn’t woken up yet…”

Anthony’s ward was a private suite, and he rested in the inner room. Usually, visitors would not go in and disturb him.

Samantha truly couldn’t find it in herself to smile. Her eyes flashed as she looked at Lauraine, who was sitting there. “We’re also sorry that this happened, but where exactly is Genevieve?”

Hearing that name, Lauraine shuddered, seemingly a stress response.

Jeffrey’s expression was grim. Having been in the business world for so long, he had learned to put on facades.

He smiled casually and eased the tension in the air. “Mrs. Hoffman, my mother is quite concerned about Genevieve’s whereabouts. She only went at Mr. Hoffman’s invitation, so why is she the only one who didn’t come back?”

Quincey was annoyed just to hear Genevieve’s name.

Knowing that Genevieve could be dead, she was almost elated enough to celebrate. Therefore, there was no way she’d waste manpower and resources on scouring the sea.

Without hesitation, she had persuaded Presley to call off the search.

Quincey rolled her eyes. “Who knows? It’s said that she accidentally fell into the sea. Do you know how much trouble she’s brought us? We spent a ton of money to send people to search the sea for days in vain! Seriously, of all places, she simply had to die in the Hoffman family’s territory? We just bought that cruise ship, for Pete’s sake. How are we supposed to use it now?”

All she was worried about was these material things.

Samantha’s face grew even more gloomy. “Does a human life mean that little to you? You people are truly unbelievable!”

“What do you mean by that, Mrs. Lawrence? It’s not like we wanted this to happen either!” Quincey. countered displeasedly.

She had always been terse toward Samantha, likely because she despised Samantha and yet wasn’t doing as well as Samantha now.

But to Samantha, Quincey had never been a person of concern at all.

Now that Samantha was clearly here to visit Anthony and yet behaved so rudely, it was only natural that Quincey was dissatisfied.

Ignoring Quincey, Samantha walked toward Lauraine, asking slightly gentler, “Ms. Hoffman, do you still remember that Genevieve once donated bone marrow to you? Louis is gone, too. What exactly happened to them? You were on the cruise ship, so you must know, yes?”

Some of Samantha’s words got under Lauraine’s skin, and her eyes instantly turned scarlet. She couldn’t help trembling and burying her head in her arms, biting her lip wordlessly.

‘Genevieve, my bone marrow donor, and my beloved Louis are both dead!‘ she thought sorrowfully.

She didn’t want to recall those memories that she could never forget. It was bound to haunt her for life.

Samantha got increasingly anxious.

At this time, Andrea walked out of Anthony’s ward, looking pale but calm. She said softly and hoarsely, “I know what happened. I’ll tell you.”
