Reversal - Chapter 108
Walking towards the place, Michelle picks up the phone and says “Tell me you guys didn’t commit this idiocy”
“The kid will be locked up” A female voice rang from the line, causing Michelle to instantly recognize the person who planned this whole scheme.
Squeezing the cell phone tightly, Michelle tries to control her anger and says “Do you know the shit you just pulled up!? We will be sanctioned by different organizations. The whole damn public image of the country will go down the drain!”
“Watch how you talk to me Michelle, don’t forget who put you in that seat. Now, just go along with what I tell you and keep your nose out of it!”
“Abby, watch how you talk to me.” With a threatening tone, Michelle says “I don’t give a shit that you’re a Rockefeller, not even your grandmother talks to me with that tone, much less your mother”
“*Sigh*” Rubbing the bridge of her nose with her free hand, Michelle continued “Does your mother know what you did?”
“Of course she doesn’t know, I guess your grandfather is in the dark too…. *sigh* I told them that leaving you in charge was stupid, I have nothing to talk to you about, bye.” Hanging up the call, Michelle looked at Kathia and said “This shit is going to be tough”
“I can see that…”
Taking a deep breath, Michelle dialed another number “Hello? Michelle?”
“Ma’am, we have a problem… no, you have a problem”
“Don’t worry little Michelle, what happened” Quietly, an aged and kind voice rang from the other end.
“It’s your granddaughter ma’am, she meddles in a trial and even the stupidest person in the world could see it, plus she sent a 12-year-old boy to ADX Florence prison”
“Now that’s trouble” Losing her politeness, the voice continues seriously “How bad is the situation?”
“In 20 minutes at the most, we will be surrounded by protests all over the world”
“Do you know why she locked up that child?”
“I think I know… the child exposed a pedophile network, I understand that an actor who was locked up was the lover of her granddaughter, the man seemed to like torturing children”
“Madam, this is really serious. We risk another economic fall and several sanctions”
“What did my granddaughter say?”
“She wants me to do nothing, the child will be locked up-”
“Ma’am, are you okay!?” Hearing a gunshot from the other side, Michelle asked with concern.
“Yes… They just killed my guard” The old lady replied with a strange serenity.
Losing all color from her face, Michelle spoke in a trembling voice “Th-them?”
“Yes… this is our second warning, one more and they’ll hunt us down” Undeterred, the woman maintained her calmness and says “Since everything is already done, follow my granddaughter’s plan”
“Ma’am, we can’t do that!”
“Michelle, since when do you refuse me?”
“Ma’am… you don’t understand how serious this is”
“Of course I understand Michelle, if those people gave us a second warning for this, it means that the situation was very serious for the country… I know perfectly well. I will talk to my granddaughter. For now, just follow her plan” With those words, the woman hung up the call.
“This just turned bad…” Looking at Kathia bitterly, Michelle continued “I can’t give presidential pardon and ‘They’ got involved”
Wide eyed, Kathia says “Warning?”
“Yes, they killed Mrs. Rockefeller’s right-hand woman”
Chuckling, Kathia says “They’re in deep shit”
“I’m in deep shit” Sitting back down, Michelle pulls at her hair in frustration “Now I will definitely be remembered as the worst president…maybe only after that pedophile that’s locked up, but I should go forget about any re-election”
“What will you do?”
“…” Looking at Kathia for a few seconds, Michelle says “We just have to prepare to minimize the damage. Start shifting the focus to the middle east little by little, sooner or later they will forget about the situation and move on with their lives”
“And the child’s confinement? We can’t leave him in that jail, it will only aggravate the situation”
“…” Thinking for a few seconds, Michelle just sighed and says “We can’t take him out, whoever sent him there is one of Abby’s people, I guess she has a plan, let’s wait and see”
“…” Looking at Michelle for a few seconds, Kathia says seriously “Michelle, after all this, that child will be a danger, he must have an abysmal hatred against us and he has the intelligence to harm the country if he tries hard”
Waving her hand dismissively, Michelle replies “It’s not my problem, Abby will know what to do with that, I just want this all to be over quickly-”
*beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*
Raising her eyebrows at her notifications, Kathia picks up her tracker and looks at the message, then furrows her eyebrows and looks at Michelle “The judge who put the kid away died”
“They killed him already?”
Puzzled, Kathia shook her head “He was struck by lightning…”
A loud slapping sounded in a dimly lit room, as an old woman glared angrily at a woman around 28 years old standing in front of her.
“Don’t you have any brains!? Don’t you know how to come up with a damn plan before you act!?” Exclaimed the old woman angrily.
“…” Staring at the ground in silence, Abby just clenched her fists.
Looking at her granddaughter with disappointment, the old woman only ended up sighing and sat down on the couch “We were given the second and final warning, that was the consequence of your actions!”
Widening her eyes, Abby looked up and asked incredulously “Th-they got involved?”
“And you find that unbelievable?” With more disappointment in her voice, the old woman continues “You publicly showed abysmal corruption against a 12-year-old child, the same child you attempted to kidnap only a month ago, the same child who publicly revealed over 200 pedophiles in the country”
“But that doesn’t affect the foundation of the country enough for them to act” Frowning, Abby rebutted.
“It doesn’t affect the foundation of the country?” Laughing in anger, the old woman looks at her granddaughter and says “You just threw the entire public image of the United States in the trash, the whole world will look down on us for your damn actions, you think that doesn’t affect the foundation!?”
“What do you think will happen now!?”
“Let me tell you what will happen” Looking at her granddaughter coldly, the old woman continues “More than half of the country will come out to protest, there will be a distrust never seen before from the citizens towards the government, people from other countries will surround our consulates and all kinds of public criticism will come to us, we will be a country that implies that it protects corruption and anyone who tries to bring it down, will be killed or locked up”
“But that’s the way we are-”
Without letting her finish speaking, the old woman slaps the woman again. “Yes, that’s the way things are all over the world, but it’s a very different thing to do it in the dark than to do it publicly. This is not Mexico, Africa or some middle eastern country. We are supposed to be the leaders of the world. We have to have an unimpeachable fucking image, and you just threw all that away, and for what reason? A FUCKING MAN!!!”
Not daring to look at her grandmother, Abby kept her gaze down.
“*Sigh*” Calming herself with a deep breath, the old woman frowns and says “What’s your plan?”
“We’ll make the boy commit suicide in jail and then kill his family in a car accident or something similar”
Laughing lightly, the old woman grabs Abby’s chin hard and forces her to look at her “You didn’t understand anything I told you?”
“Public distrust is through the roof, even if that damn family dies of cancer, they won’t believe it and will blame the government, all because of your damn actions”
“So what do we do…”
“*Sigh*” With a tired sigh, Abby leans back on the couch and says “What was your plan for the kid to commit suicide?”
“I would send him a letter where there are pictures of his family, threatening that, if he doesn’t kill himself, his family dies”
“And the letter? What if he sends it to the media?”
“I have people in jail, nothing will come out”
“…” Tapping her thigh with her fingertips, the old woman thought “The family you won’t touch, but the idea with the boy is good, I looked into it and he seems to love his family very much”
“*Sigh* That boy had a lot of potential… we could have married him off to someone in the family and he would bring a lot of profit, at 12 years old he accomplished much more than you and all your sisters combined.” With another sigh of disappointment, the old woman continues “And all lost for a damn man who used to be a prostitute”
Shaking her head, the old woman sighs “I don’t know how we failed with you… I expanded all of our businesses to the world, your mother took up politics, but you…. *sigh* you’re such a disappointment Abby”
Clenching her fists tightly, Abby just kept silent.
“But what’s done can’t be changed anymore… continue with the part about the child’s suicide, after that I’ll talk to the other families and we’ll close that jail, it cost us a lot of money, but after this, we won’t be able to defend it”
“And the protests?”
“You didn’t plan anything for that?” Frowning, the old woman narrowed her eyes at her granddaughter.
Scoffing, the old woman says “You just wanted to show that child what you were capable of, didn’t you?”
“…” Dodging the look, Abby blushed slightly.
“Stupid!” shouted the old woman angrily, slapping the woman hard, then continuing “You know what that second warning they gave us means!?”
“Of course you know, I taught you as a child what those people mean!”
“The Kennedys had to kill their heiress to avoid having a warning, and you ignored everything, putting the whole family in danger!”
“But grandmother, we had already done similar actions… I never expected us to have a warning for this”
“You still don’t understand” Furrowing her eyebrows, the old woman continues “I’m not scolding you for what you wanted to do to the child, I don’t give a damn about that child. I’m scolding you for how you did it and when you did it, you thought with your fucking pussy and not with your brain, and put the whole family to be at risk”
“The first kidnapping attempt was fine, everyone thought it was by some random local mafia, but now with your actions, everyone knows with proof that there was corruption in this case. It’s something very different from when they only suspect something… no matter how suspicious they are, it will never come to anything… but you were stupid. *Sigh* What’s done is done, go finish what I told you” Waving her hand wearily, the old woman expels her granddaughter.
“Yes Grandma” Bowing slightly, Abby stands up and exits the room, then clenches her fists tightly as she looks at the door, instantly changing her expression to one of pure hatred.
Hours later, Christian was in the prison, looking at the cold concrete walls and thick iron doors with interest. “This will withstand a missile?”
“Depends on the missile” Dragging the handcuffed boy, the same woman who spoke to him earlier replied, finding the boy especially pleasant, even if he is a murderer.
“What is your name?”
“You can’t tell me? Like we’re in a movie? You’ll say ‘If I tell you, I’ll have to kill you’, won’t you?” Mimicking a deep, thick voice, Christian spoke with a smile.
“*Sigh*” Walking in silence, Christian was led into a room and uncuffed, only to be photographed with the typical black sign with his name on it, something he didn’t miss and made several amusing faces for his records.
“Take off your clothes” Looking at the boy with boredom, the same woman spoke.
“You know that’s illegal in over 100 countries? I’m 12 years old, it’s pedophilia” Raising his eyebrows, Christian spoke.
“…” Opening her eyes a little wider, the woman turns to her companions with doubt. “What do we do?”
“I don’t know…” Another woman replied, as she waited with the camera in her hands.
“Is it real that they take pictures of their inmates while naked!?” In disbelief, Christian spoke up “Ladies, for starters this is a women’s prison, I shouldn’t be here, what they want to do is wrong in every possible way”
“I think… we could skip that part” With hesitation, the woman spoke.
“Great, bring me my inmate clothes? This suit is very uncomfortable”
“…” Looking at the boy with boredom, the woman looked at her companions and looked for help. “We don’t have clothes for people your size, or men’s clothes…”
“*Sigh* Just give me the smaller clothes, I’ll adapt” Noticing the difficulty, Christian gave no more trouble and spoke.
Nodding, the woman goes to a piece of furniture to the side and pulls out three bags of clothes and a pair of shoes without laces. “Get dressed”
Raising his eyebrows, Christian gingerly covers his chest and says “You want to see me naked? I knew there was something weird going on with you perverts!”
“…” Starting to get a headache, the woman indicated to her companions to go out and left the boy alone.
Seeing the door closed, Christian lost his smile and a sad look passed through his eyes. “I hope mom is okay…”
With bitterness, Christian took off his suit and put on his inmate clothes, turning out to be a simple gray outfit with a white tank top, but then frowned as he saw that he had no underwear, drawing a sigh of frustration in Christian.
With his sleeves hanging down and stepping on his pants, Christian shouted “I’m ready!”
Without delay, the women came in and looked at him closely, where more than one looked with amusement at the boy.
“I don’t have any more underwear”
“…” Turning to her companions, the woman was silent for a few seconds, then sighed and said “Then tell me what size you wear, we’ll send people to buy you underwear”
Approaching Christian, the talkative woman bent down and started touching Christian all over, including his lower limb, causing the boy to look at her shyly. “You could ask me out on a date first~”
