Chapter 176 Waiting For You to Come and Find Me Yourself
- “How much I know depends on how much you are willing to admit. As for the outcome of the lawsuit… As you can see, I was just the officer on duty during the fire. I, too, had to quit my job and take on a new position,” Courtney made her words rather ambiguous as she looked at Mrs. Gideon.
- It was obvious that Mrs. Gideon had been building up her resentment for some time now. As soon as she heard those words, she couldn’t help imagining the worst. Thus, she immediately came clean about everything.
- It was true that Mr. Gideon liked to smoke. That was common knowledge among all those who knew him. Moreover, he couldn’t quit his cigarette addiction. Therefore, he deliberately damaged the fire suppression system at the storeroom behind the kitchen to prevent the smoke detector from alerting the police whenever he smoked. Naturally, he was very cautious too. He would bring the cigarette butts away with him after he finished smoking, every single time. So, there could not have been any residual fire from the cigarette butts to spark a fire.
