A Beauty With Multiple Masks Chapter 1744

Chapter 1744 Unexpected Discovery

Upon hearing the sound from outside, Nancy ordered Monisha, “Go and check it out!” Soon, Monisha returned and reported that the guards saw a figure flash past. Suspecting that someone had infiltrated the compound, they had begun a search. The moment she heard the news, Arielle left in a flash. Having avoided the heavy patrols, she finally hid in the forest behind the compound.

All of a sudden, she felt a tap on her shoulder. Her expression tensed up as she whipped out her silver-plated needles to attack. “Sannie, it’s me.”

Only when Vinson’s voice rang out did she pull back. If he hadn’t said something in the nick of time, he would have been at the receiving end of her needles.

“I thought I was discovered,” Arielle whispered. Looking at him from the corner of her eye, she asked in a concerned tone, “Did you manage to locate Lorraine?”

Vinson shook his head. “No.” He paused briefly. “But I did find something else.”

“What is it?”

Vinson whispered the answer into her ear, causing her eyes to widen in shock.


Vinson nodded with a grim expression.

Arielle’s expression drastically darkened, for drugs were something she utterly detested.

Every year, there were plenty of police officers who lost their lives in the war against drugs.

“The information is correct. The queen mother is indeed inside.” After sharing their discoveries, both of them prepared to leave. They had to think of another plan since Lorraine was nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, in a basement somewhere, Lorraine’s blood-covered body was being strung up. With her hair strewn all over, she looked pathetically messy.

Nearby, the Duke was sitting on a chair with his legs crossed. Staring at Lorraine, he questioned in an indifferent tone, “Who sent you here?”

If it wasn’t because he had contraband stored there, he wouldn’t have gotten his men to capture Lorraine. After all, he felt sentimental over the fact that she had worked for him before. Unfortunately, she had seen something that she shouldn’t have.

Staring at the Duke, Lorraine said plainly, “No one sent me. I just came here by mistake. It’s up to you whether you believe it or not.”

“I would advise you not to be so stubborn. I’m sure you’re aware of my methods once I find out that you’re spying for someone.”

The Duke’s emotionless tone sent a shiver down Lorraine’s spine.

“No one sent me, really,” Lorraine repeated, staring at him. “I came here entirely by accident.”

Faced with her refusal to confess, the Duke got to his feet. He glanced at her and said, “Since you’re unwilling to talk, I’ll investigate it myself.” With that, he turned and left.

Watching his leaving silhouette, Lorraine took a deep breath.

She did not expect Nancy to be there, let alone encounter the contraband storage. If it wasn’t because of her curiosity to find out more after discovering the clues, she wouldn’t have been caught in the first place.

“Your Grace, what should we do with her?” Linda, who was following the Duke out, asked.

“Keep her like that for the time being. We’ll deal with her once the investigations are concluded,” the Duke replied. In truth, his intention was to recruit Lorraine because of her exceptional capabilities.

After grunting softly in acknowledgment, Linda looked up instinctively when she heard the sound of footsteps. The sight of the approaching figure sparked a glint in her eyes and her heart began to pound furiously.

Mark snuck a greedy glance at Linda before turning his attention to the Duke and reported, “Your Grace, I have sent out a batch of goods and the payment for it has also been received.”

Meanwhile, Arielle—going back where she came from—suddenly pointed in front and asked, “Vinson, look, what do you think that is?”
