All Too Late Chapter 181

Do You Need My Help

Vanessa and Nicolette were on their way back.

Nicolette was very anxious. “Aunt Vanessa, what should I do? Samuel knew I was not the one who saved him. Will he kill me?”

“Why are you worried? Even if the Macari family is powerful, they couldn’t send someone into prison easily.” Vanessa raised her eyebrows with displeasure.

Upon hearing that, Nicolette felt relieved.

Meanwhile, Vanessa gritted her teeth.

No matter what, I won’t let Samuel send Nicolette into prison. Nothing can happen to Zachary! If Zachary dies and Kathleen reconciles with the Yoeger family, Old Mrs. Yoeger will surely give the Yoeger family’s inheritance to Kathleen. Then, all my effort will be in vain.

Vanessa only needed to wait.

She had to wait until Frances died and passed the inheritance to Zachary.

Then, Vanessa would wait for Zachary to suffer from the renal transplant rejection.

Until then, everything from the Yoeger family would be hers.

She only needed to be wary of Kathleen and stopped the latter from getting in touch with Frances.

Kathleen wants to come to the Yoeger residence tomorrow with Old Mrs. Macari. In her dreams!

Sitting beside Vanessa, Nicolette stared at her legs as she fell deep in her thoughts as well.

I want to stand up again. I’m under many restrictions in this state.

Kathleen stepped out of the Macari residence and returned home with Charles.

As soon as they left, Caleb gave her a call.

“Do you have time?” Caleb’s voice was low and attractive.

“Yes. What’s wrong?” asked Kathleen in surprise.

“She’s not quite well.” Caleb questioned calmly, “Can you help me?”

“Sure. I’m coming right away.” Kathleen nodded.

“Thank you.” With that, Caleb hung up the phone.

Giving Charles a side glance, Kathleen said, “Charles, send me to the Lewis residence.”

The Lewis residence?

Charles slightly furrowed his brows and asked, “Do you still have to go to the Lewis residence?”

“This is something between Caleb and I,” answered Kathleen.

He quickly explained, “I mean, aren’t you afraid of going viral again?”

“No, I’m not doing anything wrong. Why should I be scared? Besides, I’m single now.” Kathleen’s dazzling eyes were clear.

Charles nodded in response.

With that, he sent her over.

In fact, he also wished to visit the Lewis residence.

Soon, they arrived at their destination.

Caleb was standing by the door.

Wearing a white shirt and gray pants, he put his hands in his pockets. His expression was indifferent.

Kathleen got out of the car and walked over. She exclaimed in shock, “What happened to your face?”

“I’m fine. Why is he here?” Caleb maintained his aloof composure.

“Don’t worry. My brother won’t say anything,” she answered.

Caleb did not reply to that.

Charles came up and greeted, “Mr. Lewis.”

Caleb simply nodded in reply.

He was, in fact, no friendlier than Samuel.

“Charles, wait for me in the living room later,” reminded Kathleen.

Charles nodded and hummed in response.

Looking at Caleb, she said, “Lead the way.”

The latter cast a deep look at Charles before bringing her upstairs.

When Kathleen reached the room upstairs, she headed inside and found that the woman was all tied up on the bed.

She struggled greatly to break free, but to no avail.

Kathleen walked over and checked her pulse.

Staring at Kathleen’s eyes, the woman struggled even harder.

“Now, she can’t stay calm even with two shots of sedatives. The doctor says if we give her more, it will cause damage to the nervous system in her brain.” Caleb spoke hoarsely.

“The doctor is right.” Kathleen placed the woman’s hand back. Then, she took out a silver needle and said, “Please hold her head.”

Going over, Caleb held the woman’s head.

“Let me die! I want to die!” The woman suddenly burst out crying.

“I won’t let you die, Vivian! You have to live!” Caleb gritted his teeth.

You must survive!

“Caleb, I’m in great pain. I feel terrible! Please don’t torture me anymore,” Vivian cried miserably.

Caleb did not speak as his charming face turned grim.

Meanwhile, Kathleen grabbed the silver needle and gently inserted it into Vivian’s forehead.

At that instant, Vivian did not struggle as hard as earlier.

After that, Kathleen inserted another silver needle at the acupoint on top of Vivian’s head.

With that, Vivian became quieter.

Seeing that, Caleb looked at Kathleen in amazement.

“Where is the medicine?” asked Kathleen.

Caleb knew the medicine she mentioned was the one she prescribed a few days ago.

Nodding, he brought the medicine over.

Kathleen took it from him and fed it to Vivian.

After finishing the medicine, Vivian fell asleep quickly.

“This medicine has the effect of soothing her mind. Feed her twice a day. It has fewer side effects than sedatives,” explained Kathleen.

“Thank you.” He slightly relaxed and let out a sigh of relief.

Glancing at Caleb, who was tucking Vivian in bed, Kathleen uttered, “She’s in indescribable agony.”

“Have you ever seen happy people become crazy?” he asked frigidly.

Kathleen froze after hearing his words.

“No offense,” Caleb clarified.

“I don’t mind. I think you have a point,” replied Kathleen.

He glanced at her intently before saying, “She’s Vivian Lewis, my elder sister. Three years ago, she was tricked by a man. Her baby died when she was in the sixth month of pregnancy.”

Kathleen was shocked.

“After that, she became like this.” Caleb gulped before continuing, “The outsiders don’t know about my sister’s situation. They think she is staying overseas. That’s why…”

“Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone about this.” Kathleen did not expect him to tell her everything.

She did not intend to learn the painful secrets.

He looked at Kathleen calmly. “Sure, I believe you.”

Kathleen was put on the spot.

Leaning against the wall, he fixed his gaze on her. “Can my sister be cured?”

“Previously, I thought we should get to the root of the problem. But after you mentioned her past, perhaps it would be useless even if we let her meet the man. For now, I’ll treat her with acupuncture and medication,” Kathleen uttered in a low voice.

“Okay. Thank you.” Caleb’s voice was deep.

She flashed him a smile and remarked, “You thanked me several times today. Are you actually this formal, Mr. Lewis?”

Caleb was rendered speechless by that.

As he gazed at the woman standing before him, he felt slightly happier than earlier somehow.

“What are you going to do about Nicolette?” Caleb asked out of curiosity.

Kathleen was taken aback. “How did you know?”

“There is nothing in Jadeborough that I don’t know. Do you need my help?” he asked calmly.

“No. I can handle it by myself.” She shook her head.

“It’s okay. I’m only returning the favor. Also, I heard the trending post of us last time was Nicolette’s doing,” Caleb remarked in a frigid tone.

She pursed her lips. “I will think of a way to deal with her.”

Caleb noticed Kathleen was a bit cautious. “Why do you need to dwell over that? As Johnson Group’s CEO’s sister and a recipient of the Academy Award for Best Actress, you even have the Macari family as your backing. What are you worrying about?”

He straightened his back and continued, “You have me now. I will help you.”

Kathleen was at a loss for words.

His words are so ambiguous.

“I still have work to do at the office. Let’s go,” said Caleb.

Momentarily stunned, she nodded in response before following him downstairs.

Charles was sitting in the living room, drinking coffee. He stood up when he heard Kathleen and Caleb coming down the stairs.
