Chapter 198

An hour later, James burst into the Nicholson manor hurriedly. “Mom! I’ve got bad news! Julie’s in big trouble!”

“Trouble? What trouble?” Florence was enjoying her tea and responded slowly.

“Matt just called to tell me that Julie’s been sent to jail!” That was a shocking piece of news.

“What?” Florence sat bolt upright when she heard that. “How did that happen? Why would Julie suddenly be locked up?”

“Matt said that Julie went to the Harmons to buy something called Immortunol, and she got into some sort of conflict with Dustin. Somehow, Julie ended up detained for stealing drugs, James explained.

“Stealing drugs? No! That’s impossible! Julie might be spoiled, but she would never commit thell!” As Florence

spoke, she suddenly seemed to catch an important piece of information, “Hang on, did you just say that Julie had a conflict with Dustin, which was why she got caught? Could it be possible that the worthless piece of

trash pulled a dirty trick on her?”

“That’s right! That’s what Matt said too!” James nodded. “That rascal has been resentful towards us all along.

This time, he must have framed Julie up to seek revenge for his personal grievances!”

“That monster! Has he no conscience?” Florence was so furious that she slammed her hand on the table. She

spat her words through clenched jaws. “The Nicholson family has been nothing but kind to him, but not only is he not grateful, he repays our kindness with enmity. He’s nothing but a treacherous beast who betrays people

who showed him kindness!”

“What do we do now, Mom?” James asked.

“We have to use our connections to bail Julie out!” Florence was flustered. Julie was her only niece, and she

doted on her 

  1. so.

“Mom, it seems like the only person who can help us now is Matt,” James said solemnly.

Matt rushed in hurriedly right then. From the looks of it, he had already been running around trying to help


Florence immediately went up to him and started pleading when she saw him. “Matt, you’ve come at the right time! Julie’s been apprehended and you’re the only one who can save her now!”

Matt sighed heavily. “Mrs. Nicholson, I’ve been asking around; Julie has been pointed out as the mastermind

behind the theft. The Harmons won’t let her off easily. From the way things look right now, Julie might be

sentenced to prison for around eight to ten years.”

“What?” Florence was so startled that she nearly lost her footing. “Julie is just a dainty little girl who’s never

been through any hardships! How could she possibly survive eight to ten years behind bars? Please, Matt!

Think of something! You must save her!”

“Mrs. Nicholson, based on the severity of the issue, I need to get my father to help out with this,” Matt said

with a shake of his head.

“Anything will do! We’ll forever be indebted to you if your father can get Julie out of there!” Florence looked at


him expectantly.

“I’ll give him a call to see what he says about this.” Matt pulled out his phone and gave his father a call.

After a brief conversation, he ended the call and said with a troubled expression. “Mrs. Nicholson, my father has agreed to save Julie on one condition.”

“And what condition is that?” Florence asked.

“According to my father, Dustin has the prescription formula for Immortunol. If you can get the prescription formula from him, then not only will my father be able to save Julie, but he will also give you thirty thousand dollars as a reward!” Matt’s offer was shocking.

“Thirty thousand dollars? Do you mean it?” Florence’s eyes lit up.

“Of course! My father never backs out on a promise.” Matt nodded.

“That’s no problem at all! It’s just a prescription formula, isn’t it? I’ll go get it right away! That worthless man would never dare to reject me if I asked for it!” Florence was roused. Not only would she be able to get Julie out of prison, but she would also get a large sum of money out of it. What an enticing deal!

“Alright, then I’ll be waiting for your good news. Mrs. Nicholson.” Matt smiled.

“James! Get a few men and come with me!” Florence ordered and stormed out the door.
