Don't Try to Escape, My Wife! novel Chapter 157

After Joseph and Lucas disappeared, it was as if they completely evaporated from this world. No matter how many places Samuel searched, how many people Jason reached out to, and even with intervention from Tim and the Louis Family, there was still no news of them.

Swift still went to work every day to meet with different people and didn't show any special reaction.

Test results on the medicine bottle that Riley once held in her hand came out. It was a deadly poison that would kill anyone who touched it.

But what everyone couldn't figure out was that Swift was Riley's biological mother, so how could a mother let her daughter die?

Although many things could be attributed to Riley if she really died and everything would seem to be over, there would be no way to find the answer anymore.

Now not only was Riley not dead, but she was also missing along with two children. Not only was Samuel looking for them, but Swift was also looking for Riley. However, the three of them were never to be seen or heard of again and there was no news at all.

Nicole felt worse as the days went by. She forced herself to stay strong.

The day after Lucas disappeared, she finished revising the design drawings, and then sent them to the US head office with a computer.

The head office unanimously approved her design, and the cooperation between HJ Group and Eternal Group officially began.

Samuel was very distressed and worried as he watched Nicole work sleeplessly. But no matter how he discouraged her, Nicole did not stop.

Finally, four to five days after Lucas's disappearance, Nicole fell ill.

Samuel stayed with her every minute.

Nicole dreamed of fire and Lucas beckoning to her for help.


Nicole sat up abruptly, sweating profusely.

“Had a nightmare?”

Samuel turned on the bedside lamp.

Under the light, Nicole's eyes were erratic. Her body was sweaty and her face was sallow, making Samuel's heart ache.

“I dreamed that Lucas was being burned in the fire and every inch of his skin was burning. He was in pain. He called out, saying mommy save me. But I couldn't hold onto his hand.”

Nicole curled up as she spoke, appearing particularly in pain.

Although Samuel and Nicole lived together and lay on the same bed, Nicole couldn't sleep at all at night after Lucas's disappearance. Samuel didn't think of anything else at all; just taking care of Nicole was making him tired.

Samuel knew that Nicole was really worried about Lucas after hearing what she just said. However, he had no news at all.

“I have searched everywhere in Seapolis City and I have searched every store, but there is still no news of them. Nicole, I know you are anxious. I am anxious too. Lucas is our son and the child of the Green Family. He will be fine.”

Nicole leaned against Samuel's arms and collapsed completely.

“The last time they hid Lucas was in a beauty salon. Where will Lucas be this time?”

“I'll check, I'll definitely check.”

“Then hurry up and go! Go! Lucas is suffering right now. He must be waiting for us to save him.”

Nicole pushed Samuel like crazy.

“Well, I'll go, I'll go. Don't worry. I'll go right away!”

Samuel dressed and got out of the bed then quickly walked out.

Nicole didn't dare to delay either. She also changed her clothes and wanted to go out, but where would she look after she went out?

Nicole had no clue at all.

The bodyguards followed her, and no one dared to blink out of fear that something might happen to Nicole.

Samuel and Jacob walked in the streets and alleys, and searched everywhere, but there was still no news of Lucas.

“Mr. Green, this is unreasonable. Riley usually isn’t close with anyone and doesn’t have too many connections. How could she suddenly become so powerful that even the Green Family, the Don Family, and the Louis Family together couldn't find the people she hid? This is definitely not something we could imagine.”

Jacob connected the events that happened in the past few days and told Samuel.

“I also Know that we might have missed something, but what is it?” Samuel nodded and replied.

“Mr. Green, the other party must have taken young master Lucas away to make Mrs. Green anxious. Now I think we should guard Mrs. Green more, I'm afraid...”

Jacob's words were like medicine, and Samuel woke up suddenly.

“Go back home!”

He turned the car abruptly and drove quickly toward the Green Family's house.

Nicole walked aimlessly and even forgot to wear shoes. She walked and called Lucas’s name.

There weren't many people on the road in the middle of the night. But when they saw the way Nicole was like, they all thought they saw a lunatic and avoided her. A few wanted to bully Nicole, but the bodyguards behind her immediately went forward and quickly scared them away.

Nicole felt like a lonely ghost now. She lost her son and her family and felt no motivation to continue living.

Suddenly her phone rang.

The sound was particularly piercing in the silent night.

Nicole suddenly took the phone, and when she saw Lucas's number on the phone, she almost lost it.


Nicole quickly answered the call but didn’t hear Lucas’ voice.

“Nicole, do you want to see your son? Come to a place, I promise you'll see your son. Remember, you will come alone. If I end up knowing that you brought someone else, then I will have you see your son die in front of you.”

It was Riley!


Nicole gritted her teeth. “Come at me! Why are you doing it to a child? Riley, you are a lunatic!”

“I'm crazy! I was crazy five years ago! Nicole, you forced me into this! Let me repeat myself, come alone to the address I gave you. If I end up knowing that you brought others with you or if Samuel also came, you'll face consequences. You want to know what your son is like now? Let me show you.”


Riley hung up the phone and sent a video to Nicole.


In the video, Lucas was locked in a glassware with a thin tube connected to his wrist. There was a wooden barrel beside the tube that held every drop of blood from Lucas’ body as it dripped out from the tube.



Nicole had a breakdown.

She sat down on the ground with tears streaming down her face.


How could she treat such a small child so cruelly?


How could she!


Riley called again.

“Nicole, have you seen it? My son needs an exchange transfusion. Your son's blood type is just right. If you are late, I dare not promise that your son will still be alive!”

“Riley! If my son dies, I will bury you alive!”


Nicole had never wanted to kill someone as badly as this moment.


Riley wanted to use Lucas's blood for an exchange transfusion for Joseph. Was she crazy?


Lucas was so young. How could he bear it?


Nicole didn't care about anything else. She suddenly turned around and spoke to the bodyguards behind her. “No one is to follow me!”
