Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort by Mr Magnate
“It’s better if we stay friends.” Charlotte nipped his idea in the bud.
“Why?” Hector frowned. “Is it because of Mr. Nacht?”
“It has nothing to do with anyone else.” Charlotte smiled wryly. “Sometimes, there’s nothing we can do to change the past. We should look ahead instead.”
Hector clenched his fists in silence.
“Call me when you get the necklace.” Charlotte stood up to leave. “I’m going now. You take care.”
“Don’t you ever wonder about why your father d*ied?” Hector exclaimed softly.
Charlotte stopped in her tracts and sat down. “Hector, do you know something?”
“You should ask Zachary when you get back.” Hector’s voice was grim.
“What do you mean?” Charlotte inquired anxiously. “Are you saying that Zachary has something to do with my dad’s death?”
Hector had a troubled look on his face. After a long silence, he changed topics. “Forget it, your life is peaceful now. I don’t want you to get into trouble.”
“Does he really have something to do with it?” Charlotte widened her eyes in shock. “Impossible. It can’t be true.”
“Do you trust him that much?” Hector furrowed his eyebrows.
“You’re not telling me everything.” Charlotte grew desperate. “What do you know? Spit it out.”
After some hesitation, Hector replied softly, “It was Nacht Group’s hostile takeover that caused the Windt Corporation to go bankrupt in three days. And your father couldn’t accept it…”
Charlotte felt as if her mind was blown by the news.
She remembered the first day she went for an interview at Divine Corporation. She met Mr. Looney who doused himself with kerosene and wanted to d*ie together with Zachary.
At that time, Mr. Looney said that he had offended Zachary, who caused him to go bankrupt.
When she saw him then, he reminded her of her father. Come to think of it now, did Dad and Mr. Looney meet the same fate?
“I didn’t want to tell you at first because there’s nothing you can do to change the past. In fact, if you knew the truth, it might put you in danger. However, when I saw how close you were getting to Zachary, I felt the need to remind you…”
“I have to get to the bottom of this.” Charlotte clenched her fists and declared emotionally, “If someone was responsible for my father’s death, I will definitely avenge him.”
“Revenge?” Hector grabbed onto Charlotte’s hand by impulse. “Lottie, the Nacht family is a lot more powerful than you can imagine. You shouldn’t think about revenge. All you should do is stay away from Zachary.”
“I know what I’m doing.” Charlotte retracted her hand and raised her gaze at Hector. “Hector, let me ask you this, do Simon and Amanda have anything to do with my dad’s death?”
Hector was d*um*bfounded. “What do you ask?”
“I found out that although my dad’s company got into trouble, his personal assets were not seized. However, Thomas and the other shareholders told me that everything my dad had was taken while Simon and his wife avoided seeing me.”
Charlotte looked at Hector intently, “Do you know about this?”
“Not really.” Hector responded calmly. “I don’t know much about the Whites.”
“In that case, can you tell me why you married Luna then?”
Charlotte felt that all these were part of the mother-daughter duo’s plans.
“I…” Hector hesitated and lowered his head. “After I saw the news about what happened to you at Sultry Night, I was devastated and had too much to drink. Then, I made a mistake…”
After a brief pause, he let out a sigh. “I wanted to compensate her financially. But, a month later, Luna was pregnant and both mother and daughter came to see my parents. At that time, your family was the talk of the town. Even my family was badly affected. Hence, my parents were extremely angry and wanted me to get married to stop the rumors. Therefore, I…”
