Anything For Her Chapter 254
Chapter 254 A Chance Encounter “Go on, Captain Sheppard. Good luck. You can do it. I have faith in
you.” Sophie is so beautiful that anyone, even someone as stoic as Captain Sheppard, will fall for her.
Eustace rolled his eyes at Danny. How have I never noticed what a gossip this guy is? Immediately,
Danny left to look for his colleagues. No matter what, he was still on duty. He had to put everything
aside and focus on his job. Eustace made his way to Sophie’s table and, like a gentleman, asked, “Can
I take this seat?” Muriel noticed Eustace as soon as he walked into the restaurant because the aura he
exuded differed from others. He was the kind of man who was hard to ignore. But remembering that
Sophie was not into men, Muriel was about to reject Eustace when she saw Sophie nod. “Huh? You
guys know each other?” Muriel’s curiosity was piqued. Sophie gave Muriel a look.
“This is Eustace.” “Wait. Eustace?” What is going on between Sophie and this Eustace guy? She just
asked me to do a favor for him, and now he’s here. Is there something between the two of them? “Have
we met before?” asked Eustace. He knew Sophie but had zero recollection of the other woman sitting
there. “No, not at all.” Hmm… Sophie doesn’t look as though she’s in love with the guy, though. Gah,
never mind. I’ll ask her about this later after we get home. For now, I’ll just help Sophie watch her back
since this guy is a stranger to me. “What a coincidence. I didn’t think I’d run into you here.” Sophie had
been showing up at the most crucial time. Eustace didn’t believe that everything was just a
coincidence. He wondered if Sophie, who was an expert in defusing bombs, had anything to do with
the man they were apprehending that day. Eustace had always been someone who kept his cards
close to his chest. Despite his suspicions, he didn’t show it on his face. Unfortunately, Sophie wasn’t an
average girl. The slightest glance from Eustace was enough for her to decipher what he was thinking.
However, she didn’t think it was necessary for her to explain herself to Eustace. After all, he was no
better than a stranger to her. “Are you done eating?” Sophie asked. Muriel nodded right away. “I’m
done. Let’s go.” Before leaving, she glanced at Eustace a few times.
As soon as they left the restaurant, Muriel grabbed Sophie’s hand and started bombarding her with
questions. “Be honest with me, Sophie. What is your relationship with that Eustace guy?” “What do you
think?” asked Sophie lazily. “Okay, to be honest, I think he looks kinda scary. And I suppose he’s not
really your type?” “Oh? Then tell me, what exactly is my type?” Sophie didn’t know the answer to that
question herself, so she was genuinely curious when she heard what Muriel said. “I don’t really know
how to describe it, but my gut tells me he’s not your type.” Sophie looked at Eustace as though he were
a stranger to her. Well, maybe he is a little more than a stranger. She got me to help him out, after all.
But she doesn’t act as though she’s into him. “Mm.” Sophie thought that Muriel’s answer was
acceptable. “But seriously, though, are you really not interested in this case, Sophie?
I think it’s rather exciting. Let’s do this together. I don’t think I can do everything on my own.” Muriel
knew her skills weren’t good enough. That was why she had been calling Sophie and trying to get the
latter to join her in her quest to apprehend the drug lord. “Muriel, you can’t handle that drug lord, so just
give up.” “Sophie, are you scared? I don’t think I’ve ever heard about you being afraid of anyone
before.” This young woman before me is a lone wolf and a hero. She has dealt with situations a
hundred times worse and defeated enemies a hundred times stronger. What is there for her to be afraid
of? “All right, that’s enough. I’m putting an end to this discussion. Eustace and the others are already
here. Just leave it alone.” Sophie thought that she didn’t need to get involved in something so messy
since Eustace was already there. “This is different. A hundred million, Sophie.” Muriel felt as if she was
sitting on a thousand needles when she thought about someone else getting that money. “Muriel, are
you really short of money? Stop messing with me, will you?” She comes from a rich family. How
shameless of her to say that. “Of course I am. My family froze my account.
I have to do everything on my own now.” Muriel’s parents had frozen her bank accounts as she refused
to go home and inherit the family’s property. “You have no idea how terrible things are for me.” She
looked as though she was on the verge of tears as she spoke. Sophie couldn’t help rolling her eyes.
“Muriel, I suddenly think you are better suited for acting.” “Okay, fine. I’ll drop it. My pitiful act doesn’t
work against an extremely cruel woman like you, anyway.” The two of them returned to Muriel’s place
after that. “Rest well and don’t think about anything else.” Muriel really is a handful sometimes. “Oh,
don’t give me that look, and don’t worry. That drug lord is a merciless killer, and I’m not suicidal. I won’t
go after him on my own.” If Muriel was fearless, she wouldn’t have asked Sophie to come in the first
place. “If you’re really short of money, I’ll transfer you some tomorrow.”
Muriel definitely wasn’t a match against that drug lord. If she were to go after him on her own, she
would surely perish. “I know I’m not a match against him, Sophie, but what about that Eustace guy? Do
you think he has what it takes to apprehend him?” Eustace is considered Sophie’s friend, right? Why
else would she ask me to help him? I wonder if he’s in danger now… “You know, just last month, many
FBA members died.” “Yeah, I know.” Sophie knew a little about that. She’s right. The people from
Anglandur were chasing after that drug lord when their cars toppled. I wonder how Eustace and the
others are now. Can they handle this mission on their own? “Eustace has a strong sense of justice,
doesn’t he? I get the feeling that…” Muriel began talking nonstop. “Also, I think they will make a move
“Muriel, I’ve been meaning to ask you something: why is the drug lord in Horington?” With many
Interpol officers going after him, why would he take a risk like this? “Oh, that? I haven’t figured that out.”
Muriel, as a member of Nalliance, actually felt a little defeated about it.
