All Too Late Chapter 216

Compassionate Release

A complex luster glinted in Samuel’s dark eyes. “Because I wanted to have more reasons and excuses to see you.”

Kathleen was rendered speechless.

The man looked at her pretty and delicate face. “But now I’ve changed my mind. You hate me so much and don’t want to see me, so I don’t think I have a need to hide that from you any longer.”

“I don’t hate you.” Kathleen pouted.

Samuel stared attentively at her. “Then what do you feel about me?”

“I don’t feel anything about you.” She turned her head away and snorted.

“I see,” he said with a chuckle, which surprised her.

Usually, he would tell her something along the lines of how he still loved her and couldn’t forget about her.

However, his reaction was so unexpectedly plain and insipid.

“I can tell that you’re quite happy to know that Ms. Schott doesn’t have a granddaughter.” Samuel brought that up on purpose despite knowing Kathleen wouldn’t want to talk about it.

“What are you talking about? I’m not happy.” Kathleen refused to admit it.

He curled his lips. “If you say so.”

She ignored him and rolled her eyes.

How presumptuous!

He slightly lowered his head and said, “Oh, by the way, the down jacket is indeed comfy.”

She didn’t say anything, and her silence put a faint smile on his face.

Soon after, Yasmine came down the stairs from the second floor, and the trio headed toward the Yoeger residence.

Upon reaching the place, they sensed a stagnant atmosphere.

Yasmine was immediately angered when she saw that they hadn’t sent Frances to the hospital yet.

“Samuel, where are your subordinates?” asked Yasmine with a deep, displeased voice.

“They’re outside.”

“Have them come in here and send Old Mrs. Yoeger to the hospital,” ordered Yasmine.

“All right.” He took his phone out and summoned his men, who had been standing guard outside.

After receiving the call from Samuel, they stepped in right away to carry out the order.

“Aunt Yasmine?” Zachary stepped out of the room, shocked to see Yasmine.

The latter sneered. “Oh, so you’re around? I thought everyone in this house was dead.”

The man felt awkward. “Aunt Yasmine, when did you get here?”

“I’ve been here for a while. Didn’t Vanessa tell you? She had just left my place,” questioned Yasmine with an icy tone.

Zachary pursed his lips, looking at Samuel and Kathleen.

Samuel whispered a few orders to Tyson, and the latter immediately sent someone to Frances’ room.

A few of Samuel’s men carried the old woman out of the room and put her in the car, sending her to the hospital.

At the same time, Tyson took the camera that Kathleen installed a few days ago when no one was paying attention.

The footage saved inside would act as evidence.

“Aunt Yasmine, where are they bringing my mom?” Zachary was concerned.

“The hospital, of course! Look at the state she’s in! Why didn’t you guys send her to the hospital?” Yasmine responded unhappily.

Zachary didn’t know how to answer.

“Can’t you all see my sister’s terrifying complexion? How dare you guys delay sending her to the hospital? What a bunch of b*stards!” Yasmine exploded with fury.

Zachary pursed his lips and explained calmly, “Aunt Yasmine, we consulted a doctor. My mom’s suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, that’s all.”

“That’s bullsh*t! How dumb do you think I am? Do you think I don’t know anything about Alzheimer’s? How would someone’s face turn purple from getting Alzheimer’s?” Yasmine roared.

Zachary was at a loss for words.

“Just you wait. I’ll make you guys pay if the test results show that you guys are the culprit!” Yasmine was genuinely infuriated as she turned on her heels and left the residence after yelling at Zachary.

Samuel and Kathleen exchanged a brief glance and prepared to leave as well.

“Ms. Johnson, can you talk to Mr. Lewis and ask him to show mercy on my daughter?” Zachary suddenly spoke.

Kathleen turned to look at the man. “Nicolette can only blame herself for being arrested. Even if I go to Caleb, he wouldn’t be able to do anything. She deliberately violated the law, so she must be punished.”

“She won’t be convicted if you drop the lawsuit. Even if you are resentful, I don’t think you should vent all your hatred on her.” He looked at her with a grim expression on his face.

She chuckled. “Why do I have to listen to you about who I should or should not hate?”

Zachary was tongue-tied.

“Yes, I hate Nicolette, and yes, I do want to see her downfall. She’s the culprit of that incident. As for Samuel, I have some other way of punishing him. You’re in no place to teach me what I should and should not do. You can’t even educate your own daughter properly. How dare you tell me what to do? Who do you think you are?” she said, her tone as frosty as ever.

Zachary’s face darkened.

She continued, “No one has the right to make me forgive or punish someone. None of you are qualified to do so. Stop putting on airs and acting all high and mighty in front of me. If you want to save your daughter, come up with a way yourself. Don’t come and pester me, or I’ll make sure she never gets out of jail.”

Zachary’s breathing became rapid while Samuel gazed deeply at Kathleen.

She’s never a weak woman. Back then, at the condominium, she pointed out Nicolette’s scheme with the same calm and indifferent attitude.

That was also when Samuel began seeing Kathleen in a new light.

He spoke to Kathleen in a gruff voice. ”Let’s go. Why waste your time talking to someone like him?”

She nodded and prepared to leave with him when Zachary spoke up. “Samuel, you and Nicolette were once in love.”

There was a glacial light in Samuel’s eyes as he turned to scowl at Zachary. “Once in love? Who told you that?”

Zachary was slightly startled by the look in Samuel’s eyes.

Samuel scoffed. “Didn’t anyone tell you that I mistook my gratitude toward Nicolette for love? Moreover, after that, I found out that she was never my savior. Kathleen was my savior. She pretended to be my savior, which is another crime. So, she can kiss her days of freedom goodbye.”

Upon finishing his sentence, he took Kathleen’s hand and headed out.

Zachary watched them leave and clenched his jaw. It looks like it won’t be an easy feat to get Nicolette out of jail.

When Kathleen and Samuel exited the residence, they happened to run into Vanessa.

She looked quite helpless, probably because she was reprimanded by Yasmine just now.

However, the woman’s spirits were immediately lifted when she saw Kathleen and Samuel.

The duo didn’t even bother to look at her as they strode past her.

Upon entering the mansion, Vanessa looked at Zachary in annoyance. “Why didn’t you stop them? How could you allow Aunt Yasmine to take Mom away?”

“Do you know how many men Samuel brought with him? How can I possibly do anything when everyone in the residence is at your disposal?” Zachary said coldly in a sarcastic tone.

Vanessa bristled with rage. “Are you blaming me? I returned home late because I was helping you get Nicolette out of jail! Just look at the state of your health. How long more do you think you could hold out?”

Zachary’s expression was dull. “Then did you come up with a way?”

“Nicolette would be released from jail three days later. I’m sure.”

“What did you do?” asked Zachary.

“Her leg has issues, and she needs to be taken care of. Two more days later, I’m going to make her fake a leg infection and get her out of there through compassionate release,” explained Vanessa.
