MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 9 Episode 90
Bones of Steel’s heart trembled, and appeared on his face.
It was not only because of Lucas’s cold and indifferent voice but also because Lucas had guessed that Jace had sent him!
But the shock that flashed across his face immediately made Lucas know that this powerful killer had indeed been sent by Jace.
Realizing that his identity had been exposed, Bones of Steel was greatly annoyed.
But that he had used his hidden weapon without any useful effect and his right hand was severely injured, his chances of victory were extremely slim.
If he continued to stay here, it was unlikely that he would be able to accomplish his goal.
Bones of Steel took a deep look at Lucas before turning around to walk away.
But after he took a few steps, a look of ruthlessness suddenly appeared on his face. He tapped the ground with his toes and grabbed Alexis, who was hiding behind the tree not far away.
Everything happened so suddenly that even Lucas didn’t expect that he would dare to act against Alexis after Lucas spared his life.
Because Bones of Steel was extremely close to Alexis and Lucas was caught off guard, Bones of Steel managed to grab Alexis’s slender neck with his still intact left hand.
“Ah… Let go… Mmph!” Alexis screamed, but Bones of Steel strengthened his grip on her neck without any sympathy on his face.
Lucas looked at Bones of Steel’s hand on Alexis’s fair neck, and a sharp murderous intent appeared in his eyes.
This man had a death wish!
Lucas narrowed his eyes and shouted coldly, “The person you want to deal with is me. It has nothing to do with her. Let her go!”
Bones of Steel sneered. “Since you know that you’re the one I want to deal with, you should also know that this woman still has some value!
“As long as I exert some force, her neck will be instantly snapped! You don’t want her to die, do you?
“Immediately cripple a leg and a hand of yours and leave with me. Then I will let this woman go! Otherwise, you can only helplessly watch her die in front of you!” Bones of Steel’s voice was extremely cold, and his eyes were full of determination.
“You should know that you’ll die if you kill her!” Lucas clenched his fists.
“Hmph, so what? When I decided to come kill you, I’d already considered this. I never planned to go back alive! For the sake of showing my allegiance to Mr. Hutton, I don’t mind dying!” Bones of Steel’s eyes were full of mania and determination.
Lucas knew that this burly man was serious about it. If he didn’t agree and did as he said, he would really break Alexis’s neck!
Moreover, since he was already determined to die, it would probably be difficult to convince him verbally.
Lucas didn’t expect Jace to have such a fearless subordinate.
Alexis was getting strangled, but she still had to watch Lucas get threatened because of her. Who knew what would happen to him if he crippled a hand and a leg and was taken away by this crook.
Alexis would rather die than have this happen!
“Lucas… don’t worry… about me! Even if you obey him, he… still won’t let me go. Just kill him… You don’t have to… care about me…” Alexis struggled to speak, not wanting Lucas to be threatened by Bones of Steel.
“Shut up!” Bones of Steel was furious, and he tightened his grip on Alexis’s neck, causing her to feel unbearable pain and be unable to breathe.
Although she felt the suffocation and the impending fear of being strangled to death the next second, she nevertheless tried her best to open her eyes and look at Lucas. She seemed to be telling Lucas not to be threatened.
When Lucas Alexis like this, an extremely intense, murderous aura emerged in his eyes!
The next moment, Bones of Steel was shocked to discover that Lucas had suddenly vanished!
A hair-raising sense of fear instantly spread throughout Bones of Steel’s body!
He didn’t know what happened, but his rich battle experience and intuition as a top expert made him subconsciously have a terrifying ominous hunch!
Without hesitating at all, Bones of Steel immediately grasped Alexis’s neck tighter.
Even if Lucas suddenly appeared behind him to kill him, he would make Alexis die with him!
The moment he tightened his grip, Alexis felt an intense suffocating pain in her neck, and her vision darkened.
She knew that she was about to die!
Although she had told Lucas not to worry about her and just kill Bones of Steel, she realized that she still had many regrets when she was on the brink of death!
She didn’t want to die. She was still young, and she hadn’t really experienced the feeling of being in love. Once she was dead, she would no longer be able to experience what it was like to marry someone she loved and have children with him. It would be even more impossible for her to enjoy conjugal bliss with the person she loved and grow old with him.
She would never see her dearest grandfather again, and he would be devastated once he found out that she was dead!
She also hadn’t been able to confess to the person she liked…
The romance she longed for, the family she couldn’t let go of, and the person she was in love with would all turn into a dream…
Alexis could no longer see anything clearly.
The second before she slipped into suffocating darkness, a glistening teardrop rolled down from the corner of her eye…
An extremely crisp and clear sound of bones cracking spread to Alexis’s ear.
It turns out that when someone is on the verge of death, they can still hear the sounds of bones cracking…
But why don’t I feel any pain anymore?
Can people still continue to think about things after death? Or is it because my brain waves haven’t completely disappeared…
At this moment, countless strange questions emerged in Alexis’s mind.
“Alexis! Wake up! You’re fine now. Open your eyes and look at me!”
A familiar voice sounded in Alexis’s ears. It was just like thick clouds spreading out in the distant sky.
Almost subconsciously, Alexis slowly opened her eyes as instructed by the voice. Then she saw a pair of familiar eyes looking at her with concern.
Her chaotic mind gradually returned to normal, and Alexis blinked in confusion. “Am… am I not dead?”
