“All right!” Tommy nodded.
Just when Tommy was looking around for a mechanic while driving, he noticed a red Mercedes-Benz
“Mr. Chance, we have a situation,” Tommy remarked as he glanced in his rearview mirror.
Turning around to look, Jared said anxiously, “Find someplace secluded. It’s too crowded here on the
Tommy made a sharp turn and sped toward the outskirts of Yeringham, and the red Mercedes-Benz
continued to follow them closely.
Realizing that they were being followed, Josephine blanched, and her body began to tremble.
Jared put his arm around her shoulders and reassured her, “Don’t worry. Everything will be all right.”
Tommy stopped the car when they arrived at a secluded area. Subsequently, the red Mercedes-Benz
behind them jammed its brakes and screeched to a halt.
Jared got out of the car with his arm around the terrified Josephine.
From the driver’s seat of the red Mercedes-Benz, a short-haired girl with exquisite features alighted.
Her round and petite face made her look just like a doll.
Jared and Tommy were stunned to see her, as she didn’t look like an assassin at all.
Holding a wrench in her hand, she stared at Jared and Tommy with fear.
“Who are you? Let my cousin go, or I’ll call the police”
The girl’s hand was trembling violently as she pointed her wrench in Jared’s direction.
Shocked, Jared and Tommy turned to look at Josephine, whose eyes were filled with tears. She was so
overwhelmed with emotions that she could barely speak.
“Frida, you’ve grown so tall that I barely recognize you!”
Josephine ran toward the girl and gave her a hug.
Bewildered by Josephine’s reaction, Frida looked at Jared before returning her attention to Josephine.
“Josephine, y-you weren’t kidnapped by these two?” Frida asked.
“Kidnapped?” Josephine was dumbstruck. Then, bursting into laughter, she said, “What are you talking
about? They are my friends. Let me introduce them to you!”
She held Frida’s hand and brought her to Jared. “This is my cousin, Frida Shaw. Frida, this is Jared
Chance and Tommy Lewis.”
“It’s a pleasure to meet you.” Jared extended his hand for a handshake.
Blushing red in embarrassment, Frida shook his hand. “I’m really sorry to have mistaken you for
It turned out that Frida had noticed the terrified expression on Josephine’s face when she was in
Jared’s arms earlier in the car and because their car had been damaged from behind, she couldn’t help
but assume that Josephine had been kidnapped.
Hence, she had called the police while following their car. However, she now realized that it was
nothing but a misunderstanding.
“Thank God we got that cleared up. You gave me a scare. We thought you were a baddie too!”
Josephine replied in delight.
“Josephine, what happened to your car? What are you doing in Yeringham?” Frida asked curiously.
“We’re here to buy some herbs. As for the car, it’s a long story. I’ll tell you about it next time.”
Josephine didn’t want Frida to know too much, as it would only endanger her.
“In that case, let’s go in my car. I’m on my way to have lunch with my sister. She will definitely be
ecstatic if she knows you’re here!”
Frida did not ask further as she tugged Josephine straight toward her car.
Seeing that, Jared instructed Tommy, “Get the car repaired. We’ll stay in touch over the phone.”
After nodding in acknowledgment, Tommy left in the car. As for Jared, he followed Josephine into
Frida’s car and sat in the back.
