“What?!” Martha only felt extremely shocked at this moment.She hurriedly asked, “Why did the police arrest them? Did they mention the reason why?”At this moment, Martha kept praying to God in her heart as she hoped that her husband and two sons would have been taken away by the police because of gambling, prostitution, or something else.It would not even matter if they were taken away by the police because of murder. But no matter what it was, it should not be money laundering!This was because murder would be nothing to fuss about!It would not matter even if any one of her two sons or husband were sentenced to death or even if all three of them were sentenced to death. After all, there would be a day when they would come out sooner or later. However, everything would really be over if it was a money laundering crime!That would mean that all the assets that she had worked hard for over so many years would be seized in accordance with the law!More than half of her life’
The second daughter-in-law, who was next to her, then blurted out without hesitation, “If even you don’t dare to do it, I naturally wouldn’t dare to do so either!” As she said that, she cried and said, “The police can seize whatever they want to seize. For so many years, aside from bringing up the children at home, I’ve never done anything illegal in the eyes of the law, so the police definitely will not be able to arrest me.”When the eldest daughter-in-law heard this, she also chimed in and said, “Yes, that’s right... We are just two women, and aside from giving birth, nursing our children, and raising our children, we do not know of anything else, and we have never done anything illegal. The police will certainly not be able to do anything to us!” When Martha heard this, the anger deep in her heart surged. She wanted to rush back immediately and hack these two daughters-in-law of hers to death.She clenched her jaw tightly and said in a cold and hysterical tone, “You have been
Although the Oskian ancestors had long admonished that money would come and go, in truth, many people still valued money more than life.For a heinous person like Martha, she had long put matters of her life and death aside, and the most important thing for her was to make more money so that her family could continue flourishing.If her descendants could become rich heirs in the future and continue being prosperous, that would be her ultimate life goal.Her ultimate life goal was not focused on any single descendant, but it was to enable her entire family to have a complete change of fate.To put it bluntly, she was willing to sacrifice herself to make several generations of her descendants happy. Therefore, she would never hesitate if she were to be killed at this moment as long as her family would not be affected in any way.But now, this matter had developed in the direction that she least wanted. It was the fact that this foundation that she had worked so hard for was fall
This was also the case for Jalen.Although he was also working alone in the United States to earn money and his wife, children, and grandchildren were all relying on his support in Oskia, his family was not considered rich in Oskia yet. Over the years, the cash that he had given to his family time after time was estimated to be around ten million Oskian dollars.In his opinion, this amount of money was enough for his family to live, but it was not as obvious and ostentatious as Martha’s. So, his family should be very safe even though Martha’s family members had been arrested. As Jalen thought of this, he felt even smugger and could not help but secretly think to himself, ‘Martha, oh, Martha, I never expected that you would also end up in this state one day! You usually scold me every day as if you’re some big shot with extreme power, so why don’t you have the same bullish energy that you had before now? I did not mind your age and wanted to be a temporary couple with you so that
Jalen, who had been secretly mocking Martha, collapsed and lost consciousness in an instant because he could not stand this sudden blow.Kyler hurriedly helped Jalen who had fallen to the ground up. He massaged him as he said helplessly, “Uncle, weren’t you very open-minded when you were persuading Aunt Martha earlier? Why don’t you have the same mentality when it comes to yourself?”When Martha saw that Jalen was unconscious, even though she was in despair, her mood seemed to ease a little. It was as if another acquaintance had suddenly jumped in with her when she was feeling desperate after falling into an abyss. This somehow comforted her a little. So, she spoke up and said to Kyler, “What’s the use of squeezing him so hard? He will not wake up even if you knock his front teeth off. Hurry up and pour some water on him to wake him up!”Kyler looked at Heather, who was next to him, and blurted out, “Go and get some water from the car. Why are you still standing here in a daze
The smuggler was not afraid that they would run away at all because the smuggler did not take them to the United States directly but to Mexico first. Either way, as long as they got on the smuggler’s boat, they were just like the slaves who were sold by the Europeans back then, and their life and death were in the individual’s hands.Those who were obedient could live until the boat docked, whereas those who were disobedient would have rocks tied to their feet directly before they were thrown into the sea on the spot to be sunk to the bottom of the sea.The two had managed to escape with great difficulty, and they did not dare to disobey, so they followed the boat all the way to Mexico.After disembarking in Mexico, the two were forced to stuff a few packs of contraband into their rectums in Mexico before they then traveled to the United States with the fake identities provided by the smuggler. According to the smuggler’s price, three thousand US dollars would be discounted for
“Elaine?!”Jose was stunned when he heard this.Immediately after that, he had an incredulous look on his face as he asked, “Martha, do you mean that Elaine was the one who pinpointed us?! She... She does not know of our true identities!”Martha responded with a serious expression, “I think that the fact that our family met with this situation is inseparable from Elaine’s arrest, so it might be because of her. However, if you want me to come up with substantial evidence, I cannot come up with it either.”Kyler, who was aside, hurriedly said, “Aunt Martha, I think that Elaine is just an old and pathetic loser. She was fooled so easily, so she cannot possibly have any great abilities.”Heather also chimed in and said, “That’s right, Aunt Martha! Elaine doesn’t look like someone with any real abilities.”Martha said coldly, “Do you still remember her son-in-law?”“Yes, I remember.” Kyler said, “Isn’t it that kid named Charlie Wade or something?”“Yes, that’s him!” Martha nodded he
“Ahh?!” Kyler’s face turned pale out of fright, and he blurted out and asked, “Aunt Martha, what should we do now?!”Martha blurted out, “It seems that I made the right decision in choosing to go to Mexico. Let’s flee to Mexico as soon as possible. The law and order there is chaotic, so it would also be more convenient for us to hide. Let’s slowly think about countermeasures after we get there!”***Meanwhile, Elaine had just woken up on the soft bed in the luxury single ward in the highest-end private hospital in New York.Although she had broken a rib, the good thing was that her condition was not serious. The doctor gave her oral and topical medication to help her minimize the pain, so the physical pain that she felt was almost negligible.However, unlike her physical body, Elaine’s spirit had suffered all night long. She had had many dreams when she slept last night. Although each dream was not quite the same, each dream ended with her being sentenced to death by the court.
