“Having said that, Mr. Callum trusts you, or he wouldn’t have allowed us to leave together in your car.”Dalton choked.The person calling Camryn was not Callum but Aunt Evelyn, who was her father’s youngest sister. Aunt Evelyn had gotten married and moved to a faraway place. She hardly returned to Wiltspoon. “Aunt Evelyn.”The moment Camryn heard Aunt Evelyn’s voice, her expression totally changed. From Camryn’s expression, Dalton could see her reliance on her aunt.Camryn had a close relationship with Aunt Evelyn; it was because of her that Camryn’s life was saved.In the last decade, Aunt Evelyn had gone around to look for well-known doctors to help treat Camryn’s eyes. She had also brought Camryn along to ask for medication and prayed for her.“Camryn, where are you now? I went to your flower shop, and your assistant said you were out. When I went home, I didn’t see you either.”Aunt Evelyn had turned against Mr. and Mrs. Newman because of the death of Camryn’s father and
Dalton and Camryn were at Seaview Villa, the place where they would always choose to talk about business. As for the workers in the villa, Dalton was the one who chose them for Camryn.Although Camryn was now the head of the Newmans, her butler and servants were employed by Mrs. Newman. Given that they had been working for Mrs. Newman for years, they would be biased toward her.Camryn had thought about firing those servants and employing new ones. However, her eyes had not fully recovered. If she had done that, she would not be familiar with the newly-employed servants, which was less secure.Currently, those servants were courteous toward Camryn on the surface. In fact, they were biased toward her brother, Trenton. The butler, in particular, seemed to be on a mission to look after the house for Mr. and Mrs. Newman so that Trenton could successfully take over it.When Camryn was having a meeting with the top management in the study, Dalton was sitting beside her and assisting her.
“Let me taste it.”Kevin reached out to get some pastries.Before he could grab it, Callum slapped his hand away.“This was sent by my fiancée and it’s a little token from her with much love. I'll enjoy it myself. If you want some, go get from Mr. Queen.” Kevin then said with his eyes wide open, “Callum, you’re too stingy. It’s just a little piece of pastry, why won’t you let me have a taste? I heard that when Zack couldn’t finish the breakfast Serenity had prepared for him, she asked him to bring some to the office for you to eat.“You should learn from Zachary. He took care of his brothers without neglecting his wife.”While eating the pastries, Callum replied, “That’s why he’s the big boss. I’m only the second-in-line, I do not have such generosity.”Kevin was speechless.He got up pretending to be in a huff and said, “You think I’m dying to eat your pastry? The pastries made by our hotel’s pastry chefs are much better than the ones outside.”“Then go eat at the hotel. No
Dalton responded to Callum, “Invite me again when you actually have a wedding planned.”As he was talking, Dalton opened the car door for Camryn. After she got in, he got back in the car immediately as he was unwilling to spend another second arguing with a rascal like Callum. Dalton quickly drove away from York Corporation with Camryn in tow.Callum watched as the car disappeared into the distance. He did not go back until it was out of sight.The security guards on duty were all looking at him.“That’s my future brother-in-law.”Callum could tell what they were thinking. To prevent rumors that his fiancée ran off with some other man from spreading, he jokingly explained the situation to the guards.Although Dalton was not Camryn’s biological brother, the two treated each other as siblings. As Camryn regarded Dalton as her elder brother, he was naturally Callum’s brother-in-law.The security guards chuckled sheepishly.They overheard how the COO had addressed Mr. Mitchell. T
Trenton, who was told everything, was broken and confused.He had planned on becoming a civil servant in the future, but he never expected his parents and sister to commit such a grave crime, which closed off his path to becoming a civil servant.What was even harder for him to accept was that his own parents had killed his sister’s biological father. He and Camryn shared the same mother, but how did their mother treat Camryn?After learning the truth, Trenton finally understood why his parents were so cold to Camryn. It turned out that it was because of the death of his uncle.Trenton felt that it was right for Camryn to avenge her father and punish her relatives. After all, it was his parents’ fault for committing such heinous crimes.However, they were still his biological parents. He found it difficult to accept that his sister, whom he had always respected, treated his parents this way.Since learning the truth, Trenton had been avoiding Camryn. He had been staying at his cl
“Camryn, he’s my younger brother, Kevin, the third among us York boys.”Callum knew his fiancée was not familiar with Kevin, and there was no way she could guess his identity from his voice, so he offered the explanation to Camryn.Again, Camryn smiled at Kevin and greeted, “Hello, nice to meet you, Mr. Kevin.”“Hello, Ms. Newman. You can just call me Kevin.”Callum had already told Kevin that she was his sister-in-law.Camryn kept smiling.She turned around and handed the bouquet along with some pastries she bought to Callum. “Callum, I’ve brought you the bouquet you requested. I heard that you’ve not had lunch, I’ve also brought some pastries for you to enjoy during tea.”Kevin thought to himself. Did Callum really skip lunch, or was he just making excuses?That was it.It was then Kevin realized that he had found a way to get close to Hayden. Even if he had no reason to meet up with Hayden, all he had to do was to make one up.As Callum took the gifts and put them on his d
Kevin pointed out, “It’s quite fulfilling, but I have difficulty getting into character.”“Just imagine her as a gorgeous beauty.”“She’s already a beauty.”Callum chuckled. “Well, that’s settled then. A beauty with a family background similar to ours. She’s more than enough for you. Hurry up and make your move. Once other men discover that Mr. Queen is actually a beauty, they might beat you to it and you’ll be left with regret.“Trust Nana for having a good eye! She only wants the best for us.”“It’s not that I don’t trust Nana’s judgment, but… Let me figure out how to start. You guys have it easy, you only have to give flowers as a gift. What could I possibly gift her? She’s a man in the public eye. If I were to gift her flowers, my name would end up hitting the headlines the next morning.”Kevin York was after a man’s heart—such shocking news could cause a stir in both Wiltspoon and Jensburg.Knock, knock.There was a knock on the door, which sounded neither light nor heavy.
Zachary kissed Serenity on the face and tenderly uttered, “Don’t worry, honey. Your husband will always love you. You must be tired after taking care of Sonny for hours. Get some rest.” Given that Zachary would be busy in the afternoon, Serenity stayed with him for a nap. Half an hour after she was asleep, Zachary got up to work. The presence of his wife here, even though she was in dreamland, put Zachary in a good mood. He could focus more on his work. Compared to the silence in the CEO’s office, Callum was tending to Kevin in the COO’s office. After attending a business engagement, Kevin came back to the headquarters with Zachary under the excuse that he had not shown his face in the office building for a while. People might just forget he existed if he were to keep up with the disappearing act. “Kevin, you’ve been here for an hour. Just tell me what’s going on. You know there are no secrets between us.” Callum kept looking at the time and said to his cousin who had sat
