Elaine immediately turned on her cell phone after she got her cell phone from the police officer.
Ever since she was locked up in the detention center, she has not been able to touch her cell phone at all. She did not have the opportunity to contact her husband or her daughter at all.
Now, Elaine suddenly felt a very strong grievance when she got her cell phone back.
Her husband and daughter would not know that she had suffered so much inhumane torture and suffering in the detention center for the past two days.
However, she would not be able to tell them about all of the grievances that she had suffered.
This was because Elaine knew that she would probably be killed by the criminals or arrested by the police and locked up in the detention center again if she dared to utter a single word about this matter.
After she turned on her cell phone, Elaine realized that she received countless text messages on her cell phone. As soon as she clicked into her text messages, she realized that almost every single text message that she received came from her own daughter, Claire.
When she saw that her daughter was very worried about her and that she constantly sent her text messages asking about her whereabouts, Elaine felt very comforted.
However, at the same time, she also thought of something.
Why didn’t her husband send any text messages to her at all?
She had already been missing for two whole days. Wasn’t he in the slightest bit worried about her at all?
As she thought about this, Elaine could not help but feel very dissatisfied. She could not help but wonder, ‘I really did not expect that old man, Jacob, to be so unaffectionate! I have already been missing for so long but he did not even bother to send me a single text message at all! I will be sure to settle this score with him later!’
At this time, the police officer said, “Stop looking through your text messages. Call your son-in-law and ask him to come and pick you up.”
At this time, Elaine hurriedly asked, “Officer, do I really have to ask my son-in-law to come and pick me up? I can’t help but feel very frustrated and annoyed when I think of this man. I seriously hate him to the core! Can I get my daughter to come and pick me up instead?”
The police officer slammed his hands on the table when he heard Elaine’s words and he yelled coldly, “The reason why we are asking you to ask your son-in-law to come and pick you up is because we want to check whether the criminal organization is keeping tabs on your son-in-law’s whereabouts and moves! Otherwise, if we act rashly, then it is very likely for the criminal organization to target you and you might probably be killed tonight then! If that is the case, don’t blame me for not warning you about the situation!”
Elaine could only tremble in fright as soon as she heard the police officer’s words. She hurriedly said, “Okay, if that is the case, then I will call my son-in-law now. Officer, please make sure to keep an eye on the situation and see if the criminals are observing my son-in-law’s moves…”
The police officer nodded before he said coldly, “Don’t worry. As long as you do as we ask you to, then we will naturally investigate and look into this matter.”
Elaine heaved a huge sigh of relief before she said, “I will give him a call right now!”
The police officer asked again, “Do you know what you should say to him?”
“Yes, I know!” Elaine endured the pain in her leg as she said, “I will tell him that I was deceived and manipulated by an MLM organization. After that, I got arrested by the police. Now that I have already cleared my name, I can finally go home.”
The police officer nodded before he waved his hand and said, “Okay, you can call him now.”
At this time, Charlie was waiting for Elaine’s call at home.
When his cell phone that was placed on the table started ringing, Charlie quickly picked up his cell phone and he realized that it was a phone call from his mother-in-law. He hurriedly answered the phone.
“Mom? Where are you? We have been looking everywhere for you in these past two days! We are already going crazy with worry!”
Charlie started acting as soon as he spoke.
Elaine hated Charlie to the core but she could not say it out loud. Therefore, she could only say, “Charlie, I am at the city detention center now. Can you drive here and pick me up?”
Charlie replied, “Mom, there are no cars at home now. Can I take a cab there to pick you up instead?”
Elaine asked angrily, “Have both the cars at home been driven out already?”
Charlie replied, “Claire went to the company and dad went to his class reunion gathering.”
