Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort by Mr Magnate
Zachary stood quietly in front of Charlotte, staring at her with his cold gaze.
She was still unsettled, so she dared not look at him nor utter another word.
In her head, she was going through everything she said just now. This is a thorough story and I didn’t miss anything out, right?
“Mr. Nacht,” Ben quietly interrupted. “The chip was, in fact, swallowed by the kid’s parrot. And they did say that the parrot was sent to a vet. Maybe Ms. Windt and the kid visited the same vet, and found it after the parrot discharged it from its systems.”
“That’s too much of a coincidence, no?” Zachary questioned.
Ben immediately lowered his head and backed away silently.
Charlotte’s mind was in a mess right now. What do I do? If they really investigated the kids, they’ll find me out. Will they think I plotted all this?
“Ms. Charlotte Windt!” Zachary squeezed her chin as he picked her head up. He looked her in the eyes, “If you lied to me, you’re dead!”
“I didn’t…” Charlotte held her breath, it felt like her heart skipped several beats from the shock. She f0rced herself to stay calm, met his gaze and replied with the utmost sincerity, “I really did not lie to you!”
Charlotte paused for a second, and complained.
“If I knew this would happen, I would’ve just gave it to you directly. You’re always so unpredictable and moody. I was afraid you might doubt my intentions, that’s why I came up with this plan. Logically, I found your chip and returned it to you. I even saved Mr. Sterk’s life! You should be rewarding me right now. But instead, you accused me of stealing and threatened to send me to jail. How am I being blamed for all this…”
As she uttered those last few words, Charlotte f0rced some tears out of her eyes, feinting innocence. Her lips shivered as though in fear.
Her beady eyes shimmered as her face flushed bright pink from the accusations.
Zachary’s forehead creased as his heart softened.
He caressed Charlotte’s lips with his thumb for quite a while before letting her go. “Leave!”
Her lips twitched as she wiped away the tears before walking away.
Internally, she was ecstatic.
When she reached the door, she heard Zachary giving out an order. “Contact Bruce. Let him know we’ve recovered the chip, and there’s no need to find the parents anymore.”
“Yes sir.” Ben immediately took out his phone.
At the kindergarten, Ms. Longman had the parental information in her hand and was about to hand it over to Bruce when the phone rang.
Bruce picked up the phone while reaching out to take the papers. “The chip’s recovered. No need to look for the parents anymore. Come back!” It was Ben’s voice.
“Alright, I’ll head back right away.”
Bruce pulled his hand back and ended the call.
“Thank you, Ms. Longman.” He looked towards the principal. “Our stolen good has been retrieved. There’s no more need for the information. Thank you for your time and help me apologize to the kids. Good bye.”
“That’s good to know. Farewell then.”
Before the principal said anything else, Bruce was long gone.
“Thank goodness it was found!” The principal let out a sigh of relief as she slid the papers she had into a shredder.
On the other hand, Charlotte went to the washroom and called Lexie. “Hello, Ms. Cheney. Were you looking for me just now? Did something happened to the kids?”
“Nothing happened, don’t worry. The kids are fine,” Lexie replied. “Ms. Longman just came to retrieve the kids’ parental information, so I thought I should let you know.”
“Huh? Why did she want my information?” Charlotte was stumped.
“It looked like the people from Divine Corporation came back for it, but Ms. Longman said that when she got them the papers, they told her that they already found what they needed and left.”
“Did they take the papers?”
“No. She said they left without even looking at it.”
“Okay, thank you so much.”
