Attracted By My Ex-wife

Chapter 534 Vengeance

"If you wanted to deal with Kevin and me, you should have just come straight to us. There was no need to involve an innocent party. Colin was completely innocent. For what reason did you hurt him?" Anne's voice quivered with fury.

What she despised and also feared most in her life was the involvement of innocent people in her affairs. There was no reason to involve Colin in this - yet he had inadvertently become part of the mess and got hurt for no reason.

Colin was an up and coming businessman with a stellar future ahead of him. However, he had been kidnapped and tortured by Kim.

She had never imagine that such a thing would happen just because of his proximity to them.

'Bastard!' she thought aggressively.

"Brandon, please tell Kim not to torture or hurt Colin in any way. Otherwise, I will ensure I catch him and make him pay," Anne said through gritted teeth.

Brandon sneered. "Ms. Anne, what are you getting so worked up for? It was just one finger. It's not a big deal. We could have broken his limbs and killed him - but for your sake, we didn't."

With a murderous scowl on her face, Anne whipped her hand up to slap him across the face. But he was too fast for her. He grabbed her wrist, stopping her dead in her tracks.

"Ms. Anne, I have been a very loyal employee of my boss for many years. If you beat me, I assure you that it is in my power to do as I please to Colin as revenge," Brandon threatened her directly.

"Bastard!" Grinding her teeth, Anne said softly and menacingly, "If you dare hurt him, I will not let you leave this place alive."

Brandon smiled. He didn't take her threats seriously.

"Ms. Anne, in all honesty, I admire your character." Raising his eyebrows slightly, Brandon continued, "I might as well let you in on something. If you go up to the rooftop right now, you'll be sure to find my boss there.

Besides, you will be able to see him, but you won't be able to spot all our men surrounding him. If Kevin also goes up there - in all honesty, he may not be able to make it back.

If you really want Colin to stop suffering, you'd better get on your hands and knees and beg my boss for his mercy. After all, Colin's life lies in his hands alone."

Anne was taken aback. Kim was on the rooftop at this very moment.

'How bold is this man?' she thought perplexed.

Today was the celebration of the mayor's daughter's birthday. Many influential people from all over the city were gathered in this building...and Kim was unknowingly above them.

This was really astonishing. Kim was really intrepid.

Kevin sensed something was wrong. With his quick reflexes, he instantly held Eliza around her waist, twirled around gracefully and came to Anne's side.

Seeing this, Brandon sneered and pushed Anne out of his arms. Seeing this, Kevin quickly let Eliza go in the same manner.

Kevin caught Anne without missing a beat, as did Brandon catch Eliza.

"What's wrong?" Kevin asked softly, noting the distressed look on Anne's face.

Taking a step back, she broke loose of Kevin's arms and looked back at Brandon. Brandon held Eliza close to him and whispered discretely into her ear. He did not look even a shadow of the vicious, vile man he was moments ago. Instead, he looked like an innocent young man whispering sweet nothings to his lady.
