Agnes said. “Maybe I haven’t been through all that, but I know even if I had nothing, I wouldn’t stoop that low.”
Jenny scoffed, ‘Agnes, I’m not as noble as you, but you can’t deny it. I have a better shot at success. For people like us who grew up at the bottom, being kind only gets us kicked around. It’s useless. If I didn’t do this, how could I ever stand beside Elton, marry into a rich family, and get what I want?”
Agnes suddenly found the conversation tedious
She shrugged, “We don’t have much to talk about anymore, you have your values, and that’s cool. You live your life. I’ll live mine. You will marry into a rich family soon, and become a high–class lady”
Jenny laughed, “But, Agnes, I think I’ll need your help to marry into wealth.”
Agnes replied, “I’m incapable of that Don’t you already have Elton’s baby?”
Jenny admitted. This baby might get me through the doors of the Taylor family, but it won’t be enough to keep Elton. Only when he’s completely done with you will he really see me. Agnes, I told you today’s meetup was to end things once and for all, don’t blame me, blame yourself for being too naive.”
Agnes was left stunned.
Suddenly, Jenny fell backwards.
They were sitting in the basketball stands. The stairs were right next to them.
Jenny suddenly leaned back and then fell onto the stairs. A scream echoed as she tumbled down the steps.
Everything happened so fast. Agnes had no idea what was going on.
But as Jenny hit the ground, she screamed, “My baby! Agnes, why did you kill my baby, my baby..
A feeling of unease washed over Agnes.
Just as she expected, someone rushed over from afar. It was Elton.
Jenny was rolling on the ground, clutching her stomach, her white sweater stained red.
She kept repeating, “Agnes, why did you kill my baby? Why did you kill my baby?”
Agnes was shaking, but her mind was unusually clear.
She finally understood what Jenny meant by ‘ending things. She probably arranged for Elton to be here, timing and location all premeditated, just so he could witness this scene. Jenny’s scheming was frightening, but Agnes never imagined she would use her own child as a pawn. It was utterly ruthless.
Elton had already rushed over. Jenny was pale with a tear–streaked face and bloodied hands. She gripped Elton’s hand tightly, “Elton, our baby, Agnes tried to hurt our baby. Get me to the hospital, quick, take me to the hospital.”
Elton immediately scooped up Jenny, didn’t say a word, only glanced at Agnes, who was still on the platform, and quickly left with Jenny.
Agnes stood in place for a long time until the sun gradually set and night fell.
When Agnes finally walked down from the platform, her legs were numb.
In the end, Agnes went to Hope Hospital.
Hope Hospital was the closest to Willowbrook Middle School. Elton must have taken Jenny there
