Chapter 2286 Disappointed
The first lady could not help but wonder how unimportant they were in the president’s eyes. He can replace me with another woman, but how about Avery? She’s his biological daughter! How can he be so heartless?
“I don’t believe this. I don’t!” The initially arrogant Avery was overwhelmed with fear. “Daddy cares about me. He’ll come and rescue me. He will for sure!”
“Mr. President didn’t plan to save you at all.” Lupine, who had put on a mask, sneered icily, “Your life is worth nothing to him.” She then gestured for two subordinates to drag Avery to a large meat grinder.
At the same time, another subordinate turned on the machine. “Ah… ah…!” Avery screeched in fear. “No!” The agitated first lady stopped them from leaving. “Take me! You can do anything to me, but don’t hurt my daughter!”
“Anything?” Lupine tapped her face with a dagger. “You’d better think carefully.” “I’m willing to do anything as long as you let go of my daughter!” the first lady bellowed as she panicked.
“Very well.” Lupine gestured. Morgan turned off the meat grinder. At that time, Avery, who was hung upside down, had already fainted. if Morgan were to turn on the machine again, she would have fallen into the grinding chamber.
The first lady was aware of their intention. She knew her daughter would suffer a miserable death if she refused to cooperate. “What do you want from me?”
Her entire body was shivering, but she forced herself to remain calm. Go ahead and kill me, but spare my daughter!
“Look into the lens and confess the crimes you and the president had committed!” Lupine ordered.
A subordinate lifted a camera and aimed at the first lady.
“I know nothing. The president doesn’t allow me to ask him anything,” the first lady replied in a steady tone, “I can’t tell you anything, even if you kill my daughter and me.”
After a short pause, she continued, “But I can confess the crimes I committed to clear Francesca’s name!”
“He doesn’t care about you and your daughter, yet you’re still trying to protect him?” Lupine pointed at the computer. “Did you not hear what he said? He knew well enough we would kill you after he said that, yet he still did it without remorse. He’s clearly a very selfish man!”
“You’re right.” The first lady responded with a sarcastic laugh. “All his life, he only cared about himself. To him, people around him, including my daughter and I, are merely pawns he could use to his advantage.”
“If that’s the case, why are you still defending him?” Lupine could not understand why.
“I’m not defending him. I really have no idea what he did,” the first lady said seriously, “He’s a paranoid person who doesn’t even trust his wife.”
“You might not know all the serious crimes he had committed, but I bet you know some of the awful things he had done,” Lupine said with a smirk. “I’ll ask the questions, and you answer.”
The first lady let out a cold snort and said, “Danrique is indeed a very tactful opponent. When he made it out alive, I knew we were doomed.”
She knew these people were Danrique’s subordinates.
The first lady might not know everything about the president, but Lupine and the others could still come up with questions to solicit some insider information from her.
The president must have been pleased with how things had turned out. He felt the kidnap had given him a chance to play the pity card in front of the citizens. Gaining the people’s sympathy meant he was one step closer to making a comeback.
Yet, he did not know his wife was utterly disappointed with his action.
The first lady no longer cared about safeguarding their marriage. At that point, she just wanted to protect her daughter at all costs.
After all, forcing them to spill out the truth was Danrique’s ultimate motive.
“Now, look into the lens and confess the things you’ve done to make Ms. Felch a scapegoat,” Lupine ordered, “start by telling us about more Avery, the illegitimate child of the family.”
