A Beautiful Luna After Rejection - Chapter 247 - Being Expelled
Alpha John sighed. “However, the impact of losing your mate is multi-faceted. Mates would give each other strength. Although Thales was still working hard at that time, he had pulled apart from other soldiers. I had to give up the plan of letting him succeed as a Beta and choose someone else. From then on, Thales had become quite different from before.”
Michael and I looked at each other. We were the people who understood the relationship between our mates the best.
Even if I was only separated from Michael for a day, I felt like I would die, let alone if Michael left me completely. The separation of the mate would have a significant impact on the people left behind. When Thales lost his mate, he was no longer suitable to be a soldier.
“Thales became even more suspicious and irritable. He hurt people a few times during training. I was very sad that one of my best warriors had become like this. I kept persuading him to get back on his feet, but he never listened. Ultimately, I had no choice but to ask him to leave the warrior’s team and do some other work in the pack,” said Alpha John.
“You’re f*cking spouting bullshit!” Thales suddenly cursed.
“What?” Courtney frowned at the side. “I did not allow you to speak, Thales.”
However, Thales did not care and said, “I was doing my job well. You didn’t trust me and took me from my warrior position. I lost everything.:
“As for the truth, we will naturally investigate it. But now, please let Mr. John finish his words.” Courtney cast a warning gaze at Thales. “If you open your mouth again, I’ll add more wolf poison to your shackles. Please continue, Mr. John.”
Alpha John looked at Thales in disgust and continued, “And what really prompted me to chase him away from our pack was another matter. He killed one of our pack’s she-wolves.
“Poor Paradis was a good girl, but she’s a little introverted and lived alone in a remote house in the pack. Then, one day, Paradis suddenly disappeared. After that, we found her body in Thales’ basement.”
Thales sat on the chair and looked at Alpha John coldly as if he was already looking at a dead man.
“Mr. John, please continue,” Courtney said.
“To prevent panic within the pack, I’ve sent a few people to investigate this privately. What’s shocking is that poor Paradis’ body was covered in bruises and scars, and there are many obvious traces of violent sex.
“We all agreed that Thales was the one who did it, but he refused to admit it. To protect the pack’s reputation, I could only find a reason to chase him out and order him never to set foot on our territory again,” said Alpha John.
“Do you agree with what John said? Thales?” Courtney turned to Thales and asked.
“I admit that my pack expelled me.” A mocking smile appeared on Thales’ face. “But do you have evidence for the other matters? This is just a baseless accusation. With all due respect, this is all nonsense.”
“So, you admit that you were expelled from the pack by Alpha John,” Courtney continued to ask.
Thales was silent.
Courtney did not dwell on this and continued to ask, “Tell us what you did after you were expelled.”
Then, there was a rare silence in the earpiece. I saw Courtney and Alpha John whispering a few words to each other. After that, Alpha John left the interrogation room. Now, only Thales and Courtney were left in the room.
Courtney adjusted her sitting position and slowly said, “Thales, it’s useless for you to resist now. With the evidence in our hands, we can send you to prison for the rest of your life. We’re still wasting our breath on you because you still have a little bit of value in you. Instead of stubbornly resisting, why don’t you think about what you can exchange your chips for? No one will want to hear a word from you when you’re in prison.”
“Why should I admit to these ridiculous things? I didn’t do it,” Thales shouted in anger.
Courtney was unmoved.
“What will I get if I tell you what you want to know?”
“That depends on how valuable the thing you say is,” Courtney replied with a poker face.
I was astonished at Courtney’s exquisite negotiation skills. It was as if the initiative of this conversation was now entirely in her hands.
First, she brought over Alpha John to show that she knew Thales’ past like the back of her hand. Then, she tried to pressure Thales by telling him he no longer had value. Finally, she wanted to tempt him with a bit of sweetness.
Thales had already been led by the nose.
