A Beautiful Luna After Rejection - Chapter 246 - Interrogation
“You.” Michael touched my nose, then lowered his head and thought for a moment. He looked into my eyes and said, “I didn’t know that she had so many other thoughts about me. I’m very sorry for the sadness you felt before.”
“You’ve been apologizing a lot recently.” I blinked.
Michael raised his eyebrows at me and said slowly, “It seems you don’t need me to do this.”
I pursed my lips and laughed. I reached out and wrapped my arms around Michael’s neck as I said, “I seem to like you more every day than the day before.”
When Michael and I entered the interrogation room, we could feel that the atmosphere was completely different from the other cell.
There was no one in the main seat of the interrogation room. Only a chair was in the middle of the room, and a big man was sitting on it.
The same shackles shackled his hands, but his pain was much more severe than Joanna’s. The metal mixed with wolf poison corroded his skin, leaving a red burn-like mark on his wrist.
His hair was listlessly placed on his forehead, and the two bright headlights were shining on his face. He looked exhausted.
Michael and I stood in the observation room outside the interrogation room. There was a one-way glass in front of us, isolating the sound and smell from the inside.
I stuck my face to the glass and observed him. I quickly recognized that he was the ugly fellow who had dragged me out of the car. His name was Thales.
“What are they doing?” I asked Michael.
“It should be something like a tired interrogation.” Michael frowned. “There’s still some information on him that hasn’t been dug out yet. I said I’d take over, but Courtney was worried and insisted on interrogating him independently.”
“Are we just going to leave him here alone?” I doubted the effectiveness of such an interrogation. Although Thales seemed to be in great pain, it was obvious that these things were not enough to destroy him.
“Courtney went to find some other helpers. Look, aren’t they here now? ”
I looked in the direction that Michael was pointing at and saw the door of the interrogation room open. Courtney, dressed in a neat uniform, walked in with someone following her.
I looked closely and realized that the person was my previous Alpha John. Why was he here?
I looked at Michael doubtfully. Michael just handed me a headset, gestured for me to put it on, and quietly listen to the people inside.
Thales was sitting on a chair with his eyes half-closed. He did not even lift his head when he heard the door open.
He had been in this interrogation room for some time and knew how to conserve his energy to the greatest extent and make himself feel better.
Courtney took the lead and sat on the main seat. Following behind her was Alpha John. He was dressed in a formal suit today, and it was obvious that his hair had been combed as well.
It had been a long time since I’d seen such a spirited look on Alpha John. Since Robert’s incident, he seemed to have aged a lot. And now, I saw in him the glory he used to have once again.
“Thales Dimitri,” Courtney’s voice came through the earpiece.
“Yes,” Thales replied weakly. He finally raised his eyes and glanced at the person who had come.
When Thales’ eyes met with Alpha John’s, I saw his pupils constrict, then quickly droop down. I saw a trace of fear in his eyes when he looked at Alpha John.
“Let’s continue what we did last time.” Courtney was very familiar with interrogating a criminal. “To ensure that what you said is true, I have specially invited someone you know. I believe you have already recognized him, Thales.”
Alpha John, with his sharp eyes, looked at Thales. I saw Thales’ eyes quickly sweep over him, and his body began to tremble. “Yes, I know him. He’s my former alpha.”
“Mr. John, do you agree with this statement?” Courtney asked.
“Yes, Thales used to be one of the pack’s men, but I chased him out myself,” said Alpha John.
“Mr. John, please explain this in detail, ” Courtney said methodically. “Thales, if there is anything I need to ask you in between, I need you to answer me truthfully.”
Thales snorted coldly and did not reply.
“Thales used to be a soldier in the pack. When he was young, he became a mate with the pack’s she-wolf, and they even had a child. But not long after, his mate passed away in an accident. From then on, only he and his daughter were left in the house,” Alpha John said slowly.
“Thales was an excellent warrior initially, and I even had plans to promote him to a Beta. Therefore, even though his mate left him, he still performed well for a while and satisfied everyone. We thought he had come out of his grief.”
