Ethan walked back home with a gloomy look on his face, and Steve, who happened to be the only person present, noticed it."Young master," he called with a worried look.Ethan stopped in his tracks and looked at him. "Is anything the matter?" he asked with a concerned expression.Ethan continued to stare at him and said, "Follow me," then walked into his study.Steve didn't know what he did, but he still followed him anyway."Now, will you explain to me how there is a 'me' back home with my grandmother that I know nothing about?" Ethan asked, placing his hands on his chest.Steve was shocked, as he knew Kate nor the rest would tell him about this."You were supposed to find out for yourself when you go back home," he said and realized he had said something he shouldn't have."What did you just say?" Ethan asked, a questioning look on his face.Steve swallowed a morsel of saliva, realizing there was no going back anymore."I think it's time you know. But before that, I would like to ask
Daphne exclaimed and started running towards the figure that was leaving.Ethan did not need to bother himself with such a person and was about to leave already.But just then, he felt a hand on his arm, making him stop in his tracks.He looked behind him with a cold look and saw the smiling face of the person he didn't want to see."Thank God you're here. I was expecting to see you when I came to your office, but they told me you weren't there. I was so worried about you," she said, trying to sound considerate.But to Ethan, she seemed like a person who cared and was worried about him."This... this," the manager stammered, feeling like he was in a very hot room despite the air conditioner."She knows him. Then I'm doomed," he said as he wiped the sweat from his face.He was just about to walk over to Ethan to explain himself when Ethan's next words stopped him."Who are you?" Ethan asked Daphne with raised eyebrows.Daphne felt like she had been hit with a rock and stood there dumbf
Ethan stood there without turning his head to hear what he had just said.James had an anxious look on his face and only realized what he had said after he finished speaking. He cursed inwardly about his actions, but he also knew there was no way he could justify himself. It would be better to just go with the flow."Ethan, I mean what I'm telling you," he said, hoping it would convince him."Oh, so there's another 'me' with my grandma, right? Isn't that what you're trying to tell me?" Ethan finally turned to look at him with a smirk on his face. "You want to tell me I have a brother or someone who is impersonating me back home? Or am I impersonating him? I think I'm not getting the full picture here. Please explain it to me."James clenched his fist and closed his eyes, hiding his emotions. When he opened them, they had all disappeared, and only a playful look was showing in his eyes."Well, I might have said something I shouldn't have. But you can choose to believe me or not. It's u
"Since we are the only ones here and your sister couldn’t make it, I think it's better to end our meeting now," Ethan said and stood up.James was feeling a bit uncomfortable and didn't want him to leave just yet. He had successfully convinced him to meet up, and now Ethan was leaving even before they started talking. How could he let him leave like that?"No, Ethan, you can't leave yet," James stood up and said hastily.Ethan turned slowly, not quite grasping the reason for James' actions at the moment."Is there anything I can do for you? If not, I have another meeting with one of the investors, and I need to get going," Ethan looked at his watch impatiently and also glanced at his phone, checking the messages sent to him.James knew he was taking a risk by pushing further, but he decided to go all out."This is about you and what will happen when you get to Europe later," he said with a serious face.Ethan inwardly sneered, not willing to show it, but he couldn't deny that James ha
Ethan drove while looking through his car's rear view mirror. He smirked but said nothing as he zoomed off. After leaving his house this morning, he noticed a car following him, not too far away. Most people wouldn't have noticed, but Ethan was different. He wouldn't let something like this escape his attention. To him, it seemed like child's play. He accelerated and went into a restaurant where he had a meeting with James and his sister.With an uncaring demeanor, he walked into the restaurant, feigning ignorance about being followed. "Good day, sir. Do you have a reservation?" a pretty waitress approached him, her face blushing.She was captivated by his appearance, especially his eyes. She had seen many people, but she had never seen someone with such captivating eyes that seemed to draw one in when they made eye contact.Ethan felt the change on her face, but he did not care and looked at his watch impatiently. He didn’t need to worry about disguising his eyes with glass anymore.
"Amelia, don't you think you are being unreasonable? You sent him away, and now that you've seen how he can help improve our lives, you want him back. Don't you think you're being selfish?" Peter rebuked her angrily."What's wrong with me trying to make him help us? Let's not forget all the things we did for him until he left with us. This is the least he can do to help the family. And I don't see anything wrong with it," she said shamelessly.Peter knew she was shameless, but he didn't expect her to go this far. She was crossing a line."Do you still think he owns us? Let's not forget the time he gave his precious blood for free, and he gave it to you," he said, pointing at Amelia."Do you still think we owe him? Did we even provide him with any supplements to help him recover the blood he lost? We just sent him away with a weak body and a pale face. If Daphne and I are discussing bringing him back, you shouldn't say the same things. You've already benefited a lot from him," he conti
Amelia, who had just returned from shopping, asked with a curious look, "Did I just hear you both mentioning that person's name here? Who gave you guys the right to mention that individual?"She said angrily."This is not what you should be saying, Mom. He is going to help us, and that is what I was discussing with Father here," Daphne said calmly.Daphne didn't care about her mother insulting Ethan in such a manner. She was more concerned about the benefits he would bring, and whatever others would say was none of her business."How can that person help us when he is still working as a low-life worker in another company? What good thing can he deliver?" Amelia asked angrily, with a disgusted look on her face.Peter, on the other hand, was looking at her as if she was unintelligent and wondered how he even married her in the first place. She wasn't this stupid before, but now she acts without thinking. If he knew this is how she would react years later, he would have chosen another wo
Leona slept on the bed, her legs apart, as she was comfortably stretched out. She heard the incessant ringing of the doorbell, but she ignored it as she didn't feel like getting up to answer it.Her black cat, Sufenot, jumped onto her bed and started crying and licking its paws for attention."Great!" she lamented."The doorbell and now you!" Leona exclaimed loudly at her cat."Just when I thought I was going to enjoy my sleep," she continued.The bell kept ringing nonstop, and she had no option but to make it stop."Who could it be at this ghostly hour, ringing the doorbell as if they own the house?" she said with a tired voice and stood up, heading towards the door.Thanks to her breakthrough in her acting career, she had been able to accumulate some money to leave her old life of poverty and was now able to rent an apartment.She never forgot to send money back to her parents from time to time.She calmly walked to her kitchen as the doorbell became louder and louder.As the beauty
