Chapter 1616Chapter 1616
At that moment, Leia came out because the nurse had finished treating her wounds. "It's okay, doctor."
She dramatically wiped her tears and sobbed." I don't want to blow this out of proportion. It's fine as
long as he sincerely apologizes... This is just my fate." "What's the use of the law if saying sorry was
enough? He's so violent, Miss ... he could have killed you! You can't be soft-hearted towards him." The
doctor urged Leia earnestly, "I've seen many cases like this. The wives kept forgiving their husbands,
and the price they had to pay was their husbands beating them to death. You're lucky that you survived
today, but it doesn't mean that you'll always be this lucky. Listen to me-you have to call the cops." "I'll
call the cops. Didn't you give me a medical report? I'll call the cops if I can't reason with him," Leia said
and glanced at Xavier meaningfully. If that report could help escalate the case to attempted murder,
Shirley would be involved if Leia called the police. Not only would Shirley's career get ruined, but she
might also be imprisoned.
"But is this safe?" The doctor glanced at Xavier and said worriedly, "Your husband is quite handsome,
and usually such men are more violent than others. He might use worse methods next time!" "Doctor, I
think you've been watching too many horror movies. What could I possibly do to her?" Xavier snapped,
frustrated by the doctor's constant accusations and Leia's threats.
"So, he's finally shown his true colours. How horrible!" The doctor backed down slightly, but she still
wanted to help Leia.
Suddenly, the doctor’s assistant approached the doctor hesitantly, showing her a video on her phone.
"Dr. Crawford, I think we've got him wrong. The patient's injuries have nothing to do with this man... and
I think he saved her."
The video was currently trending, and it showed Shirley's fans beating Leia up and humiliating her. It
was more than ten minutes long, and the abuse was quite horrifying. In the end, Xavier rushed in andcarried Leia away, looking like a knight saving the damsel in distress.
"Huh? How could this be?" Alice Crawford swallowed awkwardly, then turned to Leia and whispered in
bewilderment, "Didn't you say he beat you up? Why-" 1 "He might not have beat me up, but he has
everything to do with this." Leia glared at Xavier and snorted. "He might even be the mastermind
behind all this. How else could those people hate a stranger like me that much?" "Alright, that's
enough. Are you trying to get me arrested?" Xavier knew that Leia was angry, so he let her slander
him. Once she was done, he held her hand and said, "Let's go home and get down to business, then
you can do whatever you want." "Okay!" Leia quickly agreed and gave the doctor an apologetic look,
novelbinthen left the hospital with Xavier.
When they reached Everheart Manor, they heard Stefan giving Elijah instructions. "Find Shirley. Get
her here as fast as you can!" "Wait!" Xavier approached Stefan, unusually solemn as he said,. "Stefan,
calm down. You don't have to use force." "If force doesn't work, we'll use a gentler method..." Stefan
handed a phone to Xavier. "You do it. I think it'll be more effective if it's you."
