This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr Chapter 1310

Chapter 1310 The Factory Caught Fire

Sonia drew a sharp breath. “What do you mean? Are you telling me that Quentin might have known his car accident was not an accident, but Tina’s…” Toby pursed his lips, indicating that her guess was accurate.

“After all, it’s too much of a coincidence. Anyone with a brain would be able to realize that something was wrong. Quentin chose to accept his end because he was too kind, and he loved Tina too deeply.” Toby tightened his grip on the steering wheel.

Sonia gaped, only finding her voice after a long pause. “What a fool. It really is ridiculous and tragic that Tina managed to get the favor of someone like Quentin.”

“Miles wasn’t aware that Quentin most likely knew the car accident wasn’t an accident. The only reason he helped Tina was that she lied to him, but that doesn’t matter. It still doesn’t prevent Miles from taking revenge.” Looking at the factory in front of him, he found an empty spot and parked the car.

Sonia unfastened her seat belt, saying, “But we haven’t found Tina yet. We shouldn’t be talking about revenge now.”

“We’ll find her eventually.” He reassured her, “I have now collected all the evidence of her murdering Quentin, plus I have the witnesses and physical evidence from back then. Once she makes an appearance, she’ll be facing her retribution. All right, we’re here. Let’s go.”

“Yeah.” Sonia squeezed out a forced smile before getting out of the car.

It had been around three months since the last time she came here. The place had been completely renovated. The land that used to be vacant had a large factory built on it now, which spanned several acres, making it an extraordinarily spectacular sight. As it had yet to officially begin operations, there were only people guarding the factory during the day. Now that it was past working hours, the guards had naturally clocked out.

Moreover, Sonia was only visiting to take a look instead of making an inspection, so there was no need for someone to escort her and provide guidance. Hence, when Sonia decided to come over, she rejected Rita’s suggestion to have the guards get off work later and show her around the factory.

“Not bad.” She closed the car door and looked up at the magnificent factory in front of her with an expression of satisfaction and admiration.

Toby walked over with a chuckle. “The national construction team built this; of course, it’s good.”

“Since the construction of my factory is already complete, does that mean the museum is completed as well?” Sonia asked, looking toward the direction of the museum.

However, it was a bit too far away and wasn’t visible to them at all.

Still, this didn’t stop Toby from telling her about it. “You don’t know yet? The museum has been open for a long time, probably since a month ago. There was even an open exhibition.”

“Really?” Sonia asked in surprise. “I didn’t know that at all. I haven’t heard of it.”

“It’s fine if you haven’t. It’s not that important after all. Come on, let’s go and have a look so that we can leave as soon as we’re done. You’ll probably be hungry soon.” He then took her hand in his and led her toward the entrance of the factory.

“Do you have the keys?”

“Of course, I do. You think I’d come here without the keys?”

He let out a chuckle at her words. “Okay, I was wrong.”

As they arrived at the main entrance, Sonia pulled out the key to the electric gate and pressed it. Soon, the doors to the factory opened slowly in both directions.

At the sight, she couldn’t help but exclaim, “It’s quite high-tech.”

“It’s just a normal electric gate,” Toby commented after taking a glance. He was used to this sight, so he was not as astounded as her.

Sonia rolled her eyes at him, thinking that he was showing off. Though he was already used to it, she wasn’t in the slightest.

Whatever, I won’t bother. If he says something just as boastful again, I’m the one who’d be left speechless.

At that thought, Sonia loosened Toby’s hand and wandered between the massive machines and long stretches of assembly lines. As she gazed at these spanking-new machines, a sense of satisfaction she had never felt before surged in her heart. After all, she had worked hard to achieve everything she was looking at. In the past, she would never have believed that she was capable of doing this.

“What do you think? My factory is pretty good, huh?” She ran forward and turned around with her arms open, sending him a bright smile.

Upon seeing her elation, the man revealed a look of gentleness and indulgence. “Pretty good, indeed.”

“Although it isn’t comparable to the scale of any of the subsidiaries under Fuller Group, I believe that it’ll slowly expand one day.”

“I believe in that too.” Toby walked over and wrapped her in his arms.

Sonia retracted her arms and encircled his waist as well, leaning securely in his arms and enjoying his warm embrace. However, in the midst of their embrace, she suddenly caught a whiff of gasoline, and her delicate brows knitted together in a frown.

“What’s going on? Why is there the smell of gasoline?” She hurriedly removed herself from his embrace and looked around in an attempt to find the source of the smell.

Toby had smelled it as well, and his eyes narrowed.

Sonia approached the nearest large machine and sniffed at it. “That’s strange. It’s not like this thing is leaking oil either.”

Her words caught Toby off guard, and he let out a laugh. “This one uses machine oil, not gasoline.”

Sonia fell into an awkward silence, but her petite face soon turned serious again. “If it uses machine oil, why is there the smell of gasoline?”

“The smell is coming from there.” Suddenly, Toby pointed toward the entrance of the factory.

“Let’s go over and take a look.” As she spoke, she headed toward the direction he had pointed at.

Toby was just about to follow her when he sensed something and walked in the opposite direction instead.

Still unaware that he had not followed her, Sonia continued walking as she said, “You’re right. The smell is getting stronger… Hey, what’s that?”

Sonia’s feet came to a sudden halt as she looked at the red light coming from the ventilation windows above the factory entrance, her expression immediately darkening. It’s fire! Someone set the factory on fire!

Her eyes widened at the sight, and her face turned pale. Who started a fire?

She was certain that the fire wasn’t an accident and was started by someone. After all, there weren’t any sources of ignition in sight when they walked in. Besides, the strong stench of gasoline could only be explained by intentional arson. Someone had tried to set her factory on fire or was trying to murder her and Toby, but whom could the perpetrator be?

The faces of many people flashed through her mind, but she wasn’t sure who they could be. However, the most important issue at hand was not to figure out who the perpetrator was but to find a way to escape. Although the fire was still outside the factory and had not spread to the inside of the factory yet, it was only a matter of time before it reached them. Hence, they had to free themselves as soon as possible. If they spent too much time inside here, they would either be engulfed by the fire or suffocate to death.

“Toby…” Sonia turned around and called out to him, only to find that there was no one behind her.

Toby was nowhere to be seen.

Where did he go?

Sonia was first taken aback before she soon became anxious. She took out the key from her bag and pressed it at the gates while yelling at the top of her lungs, trying to open it. However, no matter how much she pressed the remote, the gates did not budge an inch, and it didn’t seem like it would open anytime soon.

At the sight, Sonia panicked. She hurriedly lowered her head and looked at the key in her hand. “What’s going on? Is it broken?”

However, the flashing green light on the key showed her that it was not broken. The problem lay with the gate, and that its lock had been destroyed by someone. When they entered earlier, the gates were working normally, but ever since the fire started, the key stopped working, which meant that the person who set the fire had also broken the gates at the same time.

At this point, Sonia was so anxious that she was near tears. If the gates couldn’t be opened, they would be trapped inside here. However, there was still hope—the main entrance wasn’t the only exit. There were more ways out from the back and the sides, and there were also windows, plenty of them, in fact. There’s no way they trapped us inside here by sealing off all the exits. But before that, I have to locate Toby. Where on earth did he go?

“Where are you, Toby?” Sonia clenched her hands, calling out to him once more with a frantic expression.
