Chapter 261 Roast Her
In everyone’s view, Eric’s action earlier
looked like he was deliberately letting go
When Mitchell saw this, he quickly ran
over to stop Eric.
He was afraid that Eric would do
something stupid again.
“President, are you alright?”
Eric’s eyes were tightly closed. He laid
lifelessly on the seat without any reaction.
Mitchell subconsciously placed his
fingers over Eric’s carotid pulse and
sighed in relief before he looked at Kai
“Thank you, Young Master Stanton.
President Ferguson must’ve been too
tired since he hadn’t slept for several
Kai glanced at Eric with complicated eyes.
“Take him back. Leave your people here
to work with me.”
Mitchell immediately nodded in
agreement. If Kai refused the manpower
as well, he would have to worry whether
Eric would skin him alive when he woke
Kai called someone to pick him up, hung
up the phone, and saw Mitchell
seemingly hesitant to speak.
“Is something wrong?”
Mitchell pursed his lips and thought
about it before opening his mouth.
“Young Master Stanton, I know that you
were saying all those just now because
you wanted President Ferguson to back
Kai turned away. It did not ‘natter
whether or not Mitchell guessed his
Kai was no saint, but he was not so cruel
to watch Eric lay waste to himself either.
Mitchell continued, “After President
Ferguson and Ms. Stanton divorced, he
had been reflecting on the past. He’s
constantly in pain since. There were some
misunderstandings that he did not mean
to cause, yet they indirectly hurt Ms.
Stanton. He always wanted to make up
for it, though to no avail. But Young
Master Stanton, President Ferguson
never fakes his emotions. The regret he
felt was real, so are his feelings for Ms.
At those words, Mitchell felt like he had
overstepped his boundaries and said too
If Ms. Stanton was here and heard those
words, what would she feel?
Kai was silent for a few seconds.
However, he did not stay and went to the
other helicopter that came to pick him up.
When Kai reached a passenger ship
below, he looked up at the sky.
He had to admit that if not for the many
things that happened between Eric and
Nicole, those two would have been a
match made in heaven in every aspect.
Kai’s chest overflowed with grief. It did
not matter whether or not Eric had
feelings for Nicole because she would
never come back…
Kai stood on the deck, ignoring the cold
as the bone-chilling sea wind struck his
That handsome, flawless face had
become pale with several unpolished
traces. His pair of once glittering eyes
were now dull with grief…
On an island a thousand nautical miles
Nicole slowly opened her eyes and saw
damp leaves messily cluttered on the
She found that she was unable to move
because she was tied up by something.
As soon as she turned around, she saw an
indigenous person squatting next to her,
scrutinizing her. A variety of colored
markings streaked over his dark skin.
Nicole could not help but let out a
The man smiled at her.
He was bare-chested and had long,
messy hair. His neck was adorned with
animal bone-like ornaments, and there
was a circle of leaves around his lower

She sat up in terror and scooted away
from him, surveying her surroundings.
She was in a simple tent-shaped but
made out of many branches and leaves.
The branches were the same as the most
common kind of trees in the jungle.
The curvature of the branches was very
flexible, and the dense branches and
leaves stacked layer by layer kept out the
wind and rain.
However, the space was small and there
was no ventilation. It was damp and dim
Nicole’s sluggish face was pale and
miserable. The feeling of being cold,
thirsty, and hungry became more
unbearable as she woke up.
`I’m still stuck in this hellhole?!‘
Her fingers clenched so tightly that her
fingertips went white.
The man stepped forward to touch her,
but Nicole screamed and dodged.
When she turned her head, she saw
dozens of identically dressed men not far https://noveljar.com/
They looked fierce with deep, protruding
features. They looked like the indigenous
people she saw in documentaries.
Her heart sank deeper like it was falling
`W-Where the hell am I?!’
When Nicole saw the situation, a fierce
chill went down her spine. ‘Are these the
people who carried me here by my limbs?’
The tribal people stacked up firewood in
front of them. There was a strong man
who looked like their chief sitting there.
The others took slender pieces of wood
and rubbed the sticks on a thick, dry log.
Soon, the bottom of the stick began to

on another pile of dried leaves. The fire
