She Becomes Glamorous After The Engagement Annulment - Chapter 1001 - She Killed The Wrong Person
Chapter 1001: She Killed The Wrong Person
Upon hearing this, Caleb revealed a touch of a smile. “What are you talking about? How is it that I don’t understand what you’re saying? Trueman, you are the eccentric and vicious extremist here. What does that have to do with me? I am the gentle and considerate hero who betrayed even himself in order to take down the mysterious organization!”
His words enraged Trueman. “You’re shameless! Who did you even betray?! You only went to the special department because I wanted you to! I told you to do it! We were going to fight the old King together!”
Caleb replied, “Is that so? But did you put up any resistance? Haven’t you been doing as he wished the whole time? Besides… this body will only survive if I’m the one in it, no? If you’re the one in it, you would be arrested. Those things you did… Heh… But I’m different; I’m the special department’s informant! In everyone’s eyes, I’m the good guy now! Whereas you, Trueman, are a heinous villain! Besides, thanks to Dr. Smith, you haven’t shown up at all during this period of time, have you? Don’t worry, when you’re gone and I get full control over this body, I will find a way to get Nora for you. I know you’re in love with that little fatty… Otherwise, you wouldn’t have visited her when you were younger, right?”
“CALEB GRAY! What are you planning to do to my little servant? She’s my little servant! Not yours!!” Trueman suddenly yelled.
“That’s not something you need to worry about, Trueman. Although you are the primary personality, I am the one who truly controls this body. Don’t forget how you couldn’t do anything except shout and be angry in the past! Your anger was utterly useless; your arrogance was no different from a joke in front of the old King! If I hadn’t shown up and helped you step by step to become what you are today, do you think you’d have been any different from those children who died in the lab? Anger is just a display of your incompetence! I summoned you today to say goodbye to you. No matter how much you resist, it’s useless, hahaha! You are completely under my control now, so you can’t come out at all… You should be thanking me. If I hadn’t let you out, you would just have fallen into a deep sleep instead!”
Trueman was stunned.
He fell silent, aware that what Caleb said was true.
All his anger was pointless at this moment.
Suddenly, he stopped being angry. He said, “Okay, even if everything you said is true—in fact, I can even let myself be killed off tomorrow without fighting back—I only want you to promise me one thing.”
“What is it?”
“Don’t do anything to that family anymore.”
Caleb smiled. “Sure, I’ll promise you that. Do you trust me, though?”
Trueman answered truthfully.
“Then why bother saying that? My dearest big brother, give it some good thought. What else do you want to say?”
Trueman clenched his fists.
Anger was a display of incompetence.
He didn’t know what to do except throw temper tantrums, which was probably why they were in this situation today.
He was clearly the one who had saved Xander and Pete, but Nora and Justin obviously credited Caleb for it. As for Xander… he must also think that Daddy Trueman was a bad person, right? Only Caleb was a good man to him…
Trueman hung his head, which he had held up all this time, in defeat.
He suddenly said, “Xander is about to die. I won’t tell anyone about this, so I hope you can also keep it a secret.”
He didn’t want Xander to leave this world with regrets.
Caleb replied, “Of course.”
After a while, Trueman suddenly said, “Xander loves ramen the most. I hope you can take him out for some tomorrow. I promised him that I would.”
“Xander has always wanted a big helium balloon. He didn’t want to be trapped in the basement forever, he wanted to fly into the sky. I hope you will buy him one. Buy a cheery one. He would like that.”
“… Back then, when I visited the little fatty and gave her food, I only did it so that she would agree to be my servant. But she refused so adamantly, she would rather starve to death than agree to it. Toward the end, she even bit my hand…”
Trueman lowered his head and raised his arm. Sure enough, he saw a bite mark on his forearm.
He said, “I was so mad at the time that I threw the food to her and arrogantly declared that I would make her my servant one day.”
“Why are you telling me all this?”
Trueman paused and then replied, “Since I’m going to die while you’re going to live on as me, I’ll give you a clear and detailed account of some of the things that happened back then. I hope you can let Xander leave without any regrets, and I also hope that you can keep these things a secret forever and never let them know… that she killed the wrong person.”
