A Farewell After Being Reborn

Chapter 265

Sage was aware that the drug Benjamin had given her had a strong hallucinogenic effect. She heard from Tiana that the drug could cause hallucinations, especially if the person had a strong fixation.

Even though she couldn't remember how she got from the hospital to the hotel, she was vaguely aware that she was dreaming. Sage dreamt that she was still in the psychiatric hospital, waiting for lan to uncover the truth about the arson.

In her dream, he found out the truth and came to see her. He held her and told her he would like her. Sage was so excited that she disregarded her inhibitions and kissed lan. Then, she expressed her desire to take their relationship to the next step.

In her previous life, she was obsessed with this, and with lan. Hence, everything that happened last night was the result of her previous life's hopes and dreams.

If it had been just a regular aphrodisiac, she might have desired him physically, but she would've rejected and resisted him mentally. However, her obsession had become all-consuming because of the hallucinogenic drug, and she had become drawn to him both physically and mentally.

Forget it. There was no point in crying over spilled milk. Plus, there was no way for her to regain her innocence now.

Sage couldn't kill herself over something like that. It was just her bad luck that she encountered a scumbag like Benjamin who subjected her to this ordeal.

Even though lan had taken advantage of her, she couldn't imagine the torment she would face if Benjamin's plan had succeeded. Even though she didn't have much feelings for lan anymore, she would still rather sleep with him than with Benjamin and his underlings.

At the very least, the silly woman in her dreams was thoroughly satisfied. Sage would just view it as if she had satisfied an obsession from her previous life. She decided not to dwell on it and asked, "Shouldn't Benjamin be charged by now? Why hasn't he been taken in for questioning?"

lan was a little surprised. After all, he had expected her to dwell on what happened last night and get upset with him, accuse him of something, and demand an explanation. Yet, she moved on so easily.

"Is it something you can't tell me?" Sage was puzzled.

He suppressed his disappointment and answered, "Someone at the orphanage was working with Benjamin and secretly obstructed the police from gathering evidence, allowing Benjamin to get away.

"Terry already sent that person to the police station last night, and he's just informed me that Benjamin confessed that he did it out of spite."

"How'd you know I was kidnapped by Benjamin?" she asked.

lan explained that he heard from his grandmother that she had returned to the Joyner residence. He tried to call and check on her, but neither she nor the driver were picking up. He then learned from her grandfather that she never got to his place.

lan sensed that something was wrong and immediately asked someone to locate her. Then, he found out through further investigation that she had been abducted by Benjamin. Following that, he and his men rushed to rescue her.

Even though he played it off casually, Sage knew that it must've taken him a lot of effort. Hence, she sincerely said, "Thank you."

"Who knows what would've happened if he hadn't shown up in time," she brooded. He deserved her gratitude this time.

lan's dark gaze landed on her. "There's no need to thank me. It's my fault for not fulfilling my duties as your husband. I put you in danger."

"It's not your fault. No one could've seen that coming." Sage continued "By the way, my grandfather doesn't know what happened last night, right?"

"He doesn't," lan reassured. "Grandpa thought we had a fight, and that you e mad at me when I called last were night to check on you, so he tried to comfort me."

"What about Grandma?" she asked.novelbin

lan shook his head and told her he had already given his grandmother an excuse for her and the driver's absence.

"Her birthday party doesn't start until the afternoon. I just called Grandma and told her we'd be arriving late." He added, "I'll go with you to the police station to give a statement."
