A Man Like None Other - Season 4 Episode 38
Department Of Justice
Back at Yeringham, Josephine stayed up through the night worrying about Jared.
At the same time, the hotel owner was terrified when he saw the number of people Tommy had assigned to surround his hotel. Indeed, Tommy had gotten his people to go from Horington to Yeringham in a hurry to protect Josephine.
As dawn lined the horizon in faint yellow, that was when Jared had finally arrived in his severely damaged car. Naturally, Josephine got anxious when she saw the state of the car when he arrived.
As soon as Jared had gotten out of the car, Josephine rushed into his arms and asked concernedly, “Are you all right, Jared? Are you hurt?”
“I’m fine! How could the puny Whitaker family ever hurt me?” Jared smiled faintly.
Right then, Yasmin was also getting out of the car. Her heart ached a little when she saw Jared and Josephine embracing.
“Yasmin, a-are you all right?” Zeke rushed toward her and hugged her upon seeing that she had been saved.
However, Yasmin shoved him aside coldly. “I’m fine!”
Zeke was baffled. Why is she so cold toward me?
“Thank you, Yasmin! Thank you so much for saving me!” Josephine let go of Jared and hugged Yasmin to express her gratitude.
“Silly! Of course, I had to protect you! Actually, I should be the one thanking you instead.” Yasmin smiled slightly before instinctively casting Jared a gaze.
Josephine looked at Yasmin with bewilderment written all over her face. What does she mean? Why should she be thanking me?
Upon noticing the look on Josephine’s face, Yasmin explained, “I should thank you for having such an amazing boyfriend! Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been saved!”
Although Yasmin said it with a joking tone, she meant it sincerely. Jared’s appearance had shown her what kind of boyfriend she needed in her life.
“Stop tooting his horn, Yasmin! He’s going to be so full of himself!” Josephine laughed.
Everyone felt a sense of relief since Jared and Yasmin both returned safely. Besides, Josephine’s words managed to put a smile on everyone’s face.
After a few light exchanges, Jared went to bed. He was drained after a hectic couple of days. As for the others, they all slept soundly that night as none of them had rested before their return.
As they were sleeping, Summerbank had descended into chaos.
After what happened to the Whitaker family, everyone in Summerbank resorted to remaining deadpan and adopted a wait-and-see attitude. Since the family had a lot of businesses in the city, all the other families were anxiously waiting to pounce.
Although everyone in the city seemed to be on Kane’s side before this, they were all eyeing a piece of the Whitaker family’s businesses upon knowing that he was gone.
Back at the Whitaker family’s mansion, there were hundreds of officials setting a perimeter around it. They had even secured the mansion with barricades to prevent unrelated individuals from entering. No one knew what was going to happen to the Whitaker family next.
There was a frowning middle-aged man in casual wear covering his nose with a handkerchief at the scene. The stench of blood was just too strong for anyone’s comfort.
The man was none other than Anthony Long, the head of the Department of Justice. The department was the main crime-fighting organization in Summerbank. Due to the magnitude of the case, not only was the department’s involvement inevitable, but Anthony had to be there in person.
“General, there are a total of forty-eight corpses upon the search. Unfortunately, all of them are unidentifiable because of the severity of their burns. Further autopsies are needed,” a girl in a ponytail in uniform reported after making her way toward Anthony.
