The sun on the island got even hotter, and Huo Mian saw through the window that Riley and his men were drenched in sweat .
“Boss, I’m thirsty . Let’s go get some water . ”
“Wait . ” Riley stopped him .
“Don’t get water from the cottage . ”
“Boss, you don’t trust that woman?”
Riley didn’t reply; instead, he asked his men, “Did we bring water this time?”
“No . You only told us to bring Mr . Huo’s wine and some daily stuff such as formula milk…”
“Okay . I got it . ”
“Boss, where should we get water then?”
“I saw Boss had stored the bottled mineral water in the basement; you can take out two boxes . ”
“Okay . ”
“Wait…” Riley still looked worried .
“Don’t take the top ones; get the boxes on the bottom,” Riley instructed .
“Got it . Boss, we’ll go now . ”
Then some of the men walked toward the basement .
Standing in the cottage, Huo Mian relaxed as they entered her trap .
Riley was as cautious as Huo Siqian, but she had tampered with both the water on the top and on the bottom .
Sure enough, after drinking the water, they began to feel stomachaches in less than one hour .
And then after that, tiny red spots appeared on their skin .
“Boss, we seem to have been poisoned,” one man looked at the spots on his arms and said .
“Go and get the woman,” Riley said furiously .
“You don’t have to catch me . I’m coming . ” With a smile, Huo Mian walked out of the cottage .
“Did you poison us?”
“Yeah . ” Huo Mian remained smiling .
“Do you believe me if I say I’ll shoot you now?” Riley picked up his pistol and aimed it at Huo Mian’s head .
“I do . But if I die, no one will detoxify you guys… In twelve hours, you’ll die of the toxin before you can leave the island and find a doctor . ”
“Woman, I’ve indeed… underestimated you . ” Riley finally remembered Jack’s words in the basement .
The woman Huo Mian was a formidable enemy .
“So, are you going to wait to die or kill me and wait to die?” Huo Mian asked .
“What do you want?” Riley knew Huo Mian did it for a purpose .
“Oh . Can we do a deal now?” Huo Mian asked .
Riley and his dozen or so subordinates held their stomachs and looked at her with pain on their faces and hatred in their eyes .
“Tell me what you want . ” Riley glared at Huo Mian .
“I want to leave the island . ”
“In your dreams . ”
The moment Huo Mian said it, Riley refused; after all, he couldn’t take the consequences of letting the woman leave the island .
Soon, his boss would wake up and when he saw Huo Mian was gone, he’d cut Riley into pieces .
“Is it so? Then we’ll have to die together . ” Huo Mian looked indifferent .
“Don’t think I don’t dare to kill you… Don’t make me . ” Riley was getting desperate .
He had never met such a woman before; he had the urge to shoot her on spot . As the poison spread in his body, his arms now felt numb .
“I don’t think you don’t dare to kill me . As Huo Siqian’s subordinate, you probably have killed countless people . But killing me will gain you less than you’ll lose . Only I can detoxify you and your men . Anyway, I’ll be satisfied that you all will die with me, so I won’t end up dead on this deserted island all by myself . ”
Hearing her words, Riley and his men turned pale…
