Patrick chuckled and teased her, “So you actually can get nervous?” “I just want to
know the truth,” Cordy replied. “Jessica’s wedding with John concerns my safety and
Yes, she was just being selfish. The only thing she cared about was whether she
could get Dicky even though the wedding fell through!
Patrick shrugged and stopped leaving her hanging. “Before John could say1 I do’,
Rocktown’s police commissioner himself stormed in with a warrant for his arrest.
Turns out John’s a suspect in a corporate criminal conspiracy.’
Cordy’s fingers clenched. Patrick asked her, “Do you know what that means?”
“The wedding’s off,” Cordy replied.
Patrick laughed at that. “Even I can’t bear to watch this, Cordy. The man would go this
far for you, not holding back from destroying his own reputation and his own future
just to stop this wedding. And you’re being this calm?”
“How else would I react? Can I change anything?” Cordy asked in return. “I don’t get
it-how is this different from just rejecting the engagement? He’d be ruining his
“I thought you’re usually smarter than this,’ Patrick said skeptically.
Cordy stayed silent despite her anger, so Patrick simply pointed out, “Did you really
think it’d go smoothly even if he said no to the engagement? Or that Jessica’s family
wouldn’t threaten his family in retaliation? Citizens should never pick fights with
government officials-or did you miss that lesson?’
“But he lost everything now,’ Cordy argued.
“In return, he protected certain individuals,” Patrick replied with no uncertain terms.
As Cordy bit her lip, he continued, “Either way, Jessica’s family would refuse to touch
John with a ten-foot pole now that he’s been charged. Now it’s them who’s rejecting
him and not the other way around, since John provided the perfect excuse for them to
annul the engagement, and without them losing any face.’
“Isn’t he worried they’d plot against him?” Cordy asked, skeptical about the logic in the
decision. “Also, Jessica would definitely retaliate for not getting John. You know she’s
capable of anything.”
“Maybe, but Jessica’s family would have nothing to do with it,” Patrick said plainly.
“Our family has a reputation to uphold, and William wouldn’t try to kick John when he’s
down—at least, not out in the open. In fact, he
wouldn’t waste time on the Levines or anyone involved with them now that the
Levines are worthless as an ally, since they should be looking for their next target to
“As such, no matter how frustrated or vengeful Jessica would be, she would be
alone… So there’s nothing to fear, really.
Cordy was left stumped at that.
She had no idea whether John really sabotaged his own future just for this, or if he
was really arrested for breaking the law.
They agreed that he would marry Jessica, didn’t they?
How could he let it be called off halfway through?
“Anyway, I just asked around,” Patrick told her. “He’s being held at Rocktown
Detention Center at the moment, but since the crimes he’s charged with were
committed in North City, he’d be transported there for his trial in five days at most. Do
you want to see him right now, or wait until he is taken to North City?”
“Right now, I need to calm down,” Cordy replied.
“Then I won’t impose,” Patrick said, and hung up immediately.
Cordy in turn reclined over her couch, staring quietly and blankly at the ceiling.
There were so many things to consider, and it was such a huge mess that she
suddenly couldn’t differentiate anything.
The next day, news that John Levine had been arrested during his own wedding was
being published nationwide.
The initial media blackout, only to be followed by the sudden widespread coverage,
was a clear sign that the Stuarts abandoned him.
In fact, just half an hour after the first headlines were published, the Stuarts issued the
annulment of John and Jesscia’s engagement. In their official announcement, they
maintained that their family had served the country for over a century with honesty
and diligence, free from any criminal wrongdoing. Therefore, any involvement with
individuals charged with criminal offenses would be an insult to their legacy.
With the annulment now official, news of it quickly spread…
