Chapter 1265: Won’t Let You Off The Hook

Upon hearing the police mention contract killing, Eric knew that he meant him hiring someone to murder the private detective. His heart skipped a beat and his mind went blank.

It wasn’t until the police pressed down on him to put the handcuffs on his wrist that Eric snapped back to reality and struggled with all his might.

“Police, you are all mistaken. I didn’t hire a hit-man! You are all mistaken!” Eric struggled and refused to let the police put the handcuffs on him because he knew that once the handcuffs were put on on, it was very likely that he wouldn’t be able to take them off.

“Whether or not you did it isn’t up to you to decide. We, the police, will naturally investigate the matter. If it wasn’t you, we would definitely let you go. If it was you, then we definitely won’t let you off the hook!” A few police officers held down Eric, who was struggling with all his might, and put on the handcuffs for him.

“No, I can’t go with you guys. I still have a lot of things to deal with. The company can’t do wthout me!” Eric looked at Lina for help, “Chairman, I’m your assistant. I help you deal with all the big and small matters in the company. You can’t do them without me. You can’t let them take me away!” Lina stood on the stage and looked down at Eric, then sneered suddenly. “Eric, you’re wrong. Anyone can do without anyone in this world. It seems that I’ve spoiled you and made you forget who founded Layna and who grew it big and powerful.” Lina looked at Eric coldly, “That person isn’t you, but me!”

Eric was stunned. He didn’t recognize the Lina in front of him. The ruthlessness and indifference in her eyes made Eric reminiscence the first time he met Lina many years ago.

For so many years, Lina had put too much trust and reliance on him by leaving many things in the company to him to handle. This also gradually made him forget what kind of resolute and ruthless woman Lina was.

“Chairman, you have to save me… For so many years, I have been working for the company wholeheartedly. I regard the company as my own home!” At this point, Eric could only play the emotional card. However, this didn’t mean anything to Lina.

Lina smiled coldly. “You indeed treat the company as your own home. That’s why you chose to use all means to completely take over it! You hired a hit-man, conspired with Xu Cheng and Huang Ying to deceive me, and tried to stop me from coming face to face with Tianya. Eric, your scheme was really well thought out. Since things have come to this, I advise you to obediently follow the police. If you confess, the sentence will be lighter. If you resist, you’ll be severely punished.”

Lina’s reaction and words shocked Eric. “Chairman, you’ve misunderstood me. I didn’t!”

“Don’t tell me, tell the Police!” After saying that, Lina ignored Eric. She didn’t even bother to look at him again.

The chief policeman walked towards Cheng Chen. “Mr. Cheng, thank you for providing us with important clues. We might need you to cooperate with the police in the future.”

Cheng Chen nodded politely. “Okay. You can contact me anytime you need me.”

It was only then that Eric finally understood that these police officers were sought out by Cheng Chen. He and Lina had already set up a trap and were waiting for him to fall into it today.

“Lina, I’m in charge of the overall operation of the company at the moment. Without me, aren’t you worried that something will happen to the company?!” Eric looked ferocious as he started to threaten Lina.
