“Ms. Blackwood said that it’s the critical period now, so she could not call you herself. That’s why she has sent me.”
I have already known about William and me. But why didn’t she even call?
While Wayne was still trying to clear his doubts, the man approached him abruptly and whispered in his ears. “Tonight at eight o’clock sharp, Ms. Blackwood would like you to bring thirty million to Private Room One at Baykeep Coffee House. She will be waiting for you.”
“Are you kidding me? Thirty million? How am I supposed to get this much money in one day?”
Wayne’s heart fell with a thud when he heard this. Even if he had commit lots of embezzlement, there was no possible way he could find thirty million within such short notice.
“My job is to deliver this message to you. It is up to you to decide if you are going to obey it or not. Frankly, it is none of my business. But if you decide not to go, I don’t know what will happen to you tomorrow. Hahaha…”
The man finished his mission and left the office with a sinister chuckle, leaving Wayne all befuddled.
“Mr. Norton, everything is in place. Mr. Goldstein said he had completed what you said.”
Meanwhile, back at Fabian’s office, he could finally be relieved after receiving a call from his assistant.
Soon, the night began to swallow the world, yet the whole city was still as bright as day because of the neon lights from the skyscrapers.
While Fabian was driving home, he received a call from Hannah. Hannah said on the phone that she had prepared a lot of delicious dishes.
Hearing that, Fabian drove at full speed and reached home in a blink of an eye. He then entered the kitchen to a table full of his favorite dishes.
“Are you back already? I didn’t know you would be so eager to try out my dishes.” Hannah let out a hearty laugh when she noticed Fabian behind her.
Nevertheless, it was unusual for Fabian to reach home this early. Hannah was a little surprised, but only Fabian knew that he came home so early due to his concerns for Hannah’s safety.
For the entire day, he had been thinking about Hannah. He thought that everything that happened to Hannah was his fault, including the accident and Lyna.
I am the president of Phoenix Group and a successful man. Yet, I let my own wife suffer endlessly for me. Hannah, I am so sorry. You probably deserve better.
It was true that Fabian had changed a lot ever since their marriage. Not to mention that he rarely appeared on the headlines anymore, where he used to have scandals with different women from time to time. This change alone could prove his incomparable love for Hannah.
“You are right. I am starving after I heard what you said. So I rush back here.” Fabian pulled Hannah into his embrace and smiled at her.
“What’s the matter with you today? Since when have you become such a helpless romantic?” Hannah’s face blushed as she pushed Fabian away gently.
Usually, Hannah would not be shy if Fabian acted this way. But all her awkwardness was because Natasha was in the house too. Hannah was still not used to displaying intimacy in front of a third party.
“Alright, please go wait in the sitting room now. I will serve the dish right away.” Hannah said.
As Fabian noticed Hannah was still blushing like a teenage girl, he walked to the sitting room with a satisfied smile on his face.
At the same time, Natasha was watching the television when Fabian walked in. She greeted him softly, with her eyes still locked on the television.
Fabian sat down on the other side of the sofa. After confirming that Hannah could not possibly hear him, he turned to Natasha and said, “Please be cautious these few days. I have received information that someone is coming after Hannah.”
“Okay.” Natasha did not show much expression, as she was used to this kind of contingency.
A short while later, Hannah finished setting all the food at the dining table and called for the two of them. “Alright! Dinnertime!”
