“By the way, have we gotten anything back about Linda‘s accident?” Maisie got to the point because she almost forgot about it.
Nolan got up, walked to the desk, and took out a file. “Linda‘s workplace, including the clients she had and her boss, all the information is in here.”
Maisie walked over, took the file, and flipped through it. Just as she suspected, the place she had been working at had an illegal backing. It was impossible that Linda didn‘t know about it. If she weren‘t a willing participant, she should‘ve gone to see Maisie when she noticed something was off.
Nolan sat on his leather seat. “I‘ve asked Tanner to check it out. Coincidentally, that ;‘
loan company had dealings with his first love.”
Maisie paused before she continued going through the information. “illegal loans, forced ‘naked loans‘, exploiting employees. How could a company like this not have been investigated?”
Nolan chuckled. “No one did before this, but it‘s happening now.”
The loan company was surrounded by police cars, and the passersby stood around to see what was going on. The police officers led out a group of people while police officers with guns stood by and watched.
When Mr. Donovan was led out, he was still explaining, “Officer, I didn‘t do anything. The students willingly sent us their nudes in exchange for a loan. I didn‘t force-‘ “Get in.” The police officer pushed him into the cruiser.
After the company was locked up, the police officers drove the men away.
In the interrogation room, Mr. Donovan was put in handcuffs and was questioned by the police officers under the bright light. When they asked about Linda, he was surprised and immediately said, “What happened to Linda? She wanted... to cancel her
contract. There‘s a fee for breach of contract, but she hasn‘t paid that yet.
“Moreover, we give out loans, and it‘s not a crime. We don‘t kill people–“.
The police officer slammed the table and looked serious. “It‘s not a crime, but it‘s illegal. Forcing women to send nudes in exchange for a loan is a transaction. You even swindle, exploit employees, and threaten people. That‘s enough to send you to prison.”
Mr. Donovan‘s expression changed, and he sat up straight, “No, officer, you don‘t have evidence–”
The other police officer threw a ‘stack of papers on the table. “Do you want to take a look at what we have?”
Mr. Donovan opened the file, and his face turned pale, and he immediately stopped talking.
Meanwhile, Maisie and Nolan were standing on the other side of the window and were watching what was happening.
The police officer asked, “Have you seen Linda in the past two days?” “Y–Yes.” Cold sweat started pouring as Mr. Donovan asked, “Did something happen to
The police officers didn‘t answer. “Where did you see her, and what was she doing?”
He answered, “At the building site on the outskirts. I asked to meet her there because we needed to talk about the penalty for breaching her contract.”
He didn‘t dare say she had been kidnapped and his people had beaten her up. The police officers stared at him and only spoke after a long pause. “She got into an accident that day and died at the building site. Did you do it?”
Mr. Donovan was stunned, then started yelling, “I didn‘t do it! After we talked, we dumped her there and left! I have people that
can confirm she was still fine when we left.”
