A Beautiful Luna After Rejection - Chapter 249 - The Art Of Interrogation
“Think about it again, Thales. Is there nothing else in this world you care about other than yourself?” Courtney deliberately lowered her voice and said in an alluring tone, “Think about it carefully, Thales. Is there anything else you want?”
What else was there?
Thales seemed slightly confused. He could sense the hint in Courtney’s words but did not completely understand its meaning.
I turned to look at Michael. He had a look of victory on his hands and knew what Courtney would say. Michael seemed to have noticed the question I wanted to ask. He pointed at the two people talking and motioned for me to continue watching.
I heard Courtney say regretfully, “Thales, you still have a daughter.”
Thales suddenly raised his head and asked, “What are you going to do to her?”
Courtney sighed and said, “We won’t do anything to her, but after she lost her father and no pack is willing to take her in, she will be a wanderer from a young age. No one knows what she would face. Her young life will likely end before it even starts.”
Thales’ expression gradually darkened. His face, which had been calm all this while, was angry.
“But this is not the only choice in her life. The choice is in your hands.” Courtney looked at Thales sharply with her green eyes as she enunciated each word clearly, “Tell us everything you know, and we’ll provide your daughter with a legal identity. We’ll guarantee she can go to school like the other children and lead a normal life.”
Thales fell silent. He was thinking, and I could see that he was wavering.
“What will happen to me?” Thales said in a deep voice.
“You will be imprisoned for life,” Courtney said.
“Ha, I thought you would sentence me to death,” Thales mocked.
“If you don’t cooperate with us at all, I can’t rule out this possibility.” Courtney was not affected by Thales’ attitude and spoke calmly.
“Listen to what you’re saying. What’s the point of all your promises to me? I won’t be able to see my daughter again,” Thales said.
“If you don’t care about your daughter’s life or future, you can think that way. Courtney placed both of her hands on the table and scrutinized Thales. “Thales, your future has already been decided, but your daughter’s has not. This might be the last meaningful thing you can do in your future life. Do you want to ruin an innocent life, especially your daughter’s?”
The corner of Thales’ mouth twitched, and a ferocious expression appeared on his face.
I felt Michael holding my waist tightly by my side. I looked at him in confusion. Michael and I looked at each other, and his hands slowly relaxed. He whispered something, but I didn’t hear it.
“What did you just say?” I asked.
But the conversation in the interrogation room interrupted my conversation with Michael.
Thales laughed hoarsely. “Why should I believe what you said? Don’t take me for a fool. You’re just a small judge. What right do you have to make this decision? Let that Lycan Prince, who has been chasing us, talk to me. I need a real promise.”
Courtney blinked and turned her head to the side as she sized up Thales.
Thales did not move and looked into her eyes. He tried to make his gaze fierce. I could tell that he was acting tough but was weak. He wanted to use this to increase his bargaining chip.
However, he did not know that Courtney had already won by now.
As expected, Courtney sneered but did not directly reveal her identity to Thales as I had expected. Instead, she started to pack up the things on the table and said to Thales in a disdainful tone, “You better be clear that I’m giving you a chance now, not bargaining with you.”
As she spoke, she waved the folder in her hand at Thales. “Your boss, that Lexus guy, has already told us most of the things. The information you have isn’t that valuable. If you don’t believe me, then there’s no need for us to continue our conversation. I’m sorry you’ve made such a choice, Mr. Thales.”
Thales’ hand writhed uneasily for a while, which added two more red marks to the shackles on his wrists.
There was a struggle in his eyes. he knew that this might be his last chance.
I held my breath as I looked at them in the interrogation room. Courtney’s hand was already on the door handle. Just when I thought she was going to leave, she suddenly turned around and looked at Thales’ face. He looked as if he wanted to say something but was hesitating.
