Mr. Conrad Proposes to His Ex-wife Again – Chapter 283 Filial Daughter

At the same time, next door.

Daniel turned his head and glanced at Phoebe, who was sitting on the sofa. He turned his gaze back and poured two glasses of red wine before walking over with the wine glasses.

He sat across from her with his slender legs crossed, “How come you suddenly thought about coming here?”

Phoebe took the wine glass and looked around as she said lightly, “I have never been to your place yet so just stopped by.” Daniel smiled and raised his glass to her in the air.

Phoebe continued, “I met Stella as I was coming up.”

‘Oh.

Phoebe smiled disdainfully, “Clarence is just an illegitimate child. Even if he inherits the Conrad group in the future, it would just be illegitimately conferred. What is she so proud about?”

Hearing this, Daniel pursed his lips and said nothing.

After a while, Phoebe finally came down to business, “I came to ask you to check something that happened about twenty years ago.”

Daniel raised his eyebrows softly and motioned for her to continue.
Phoebe took out a photo from her purse. It was clearly taken from her cellphone and then printed out.

She placed the photo in front of Daniel and pointed her finger at the man next to Charles, “Help me find out what this man did twenty years ago.”

Daniel picked up the photo and glanced at it, “And this man is?” “He is my father’s younger brother. I would call him Uncle.” “How come you want to investigate him all of a sudden?”

Phoebe smiled but didn’t respond. She only said, “You don’t need to care about anything else. I only need the complete information about all he did.”

Daniel looked at her, “Since this is your father’s brother, I think it would be way faster to just ask him.”

“I couldn’t find any useful clues from my dad and what he was willing to tell me was limited.” Phoebe said, “I feel that the crisis that the Steward group is going through must be related to the events that happened twenty years ago. As long as I find a clue and know what happened twenty years ago, I will have a way to turn it around.”

Even if it wasn’t related, she would still have been able to create some related information.

Once she could blame the things that were happening to the Steward Group to what happened twenty years ago, then Stella would turn into the best scapegoat and even Clarence wasn’t going to be able to protect her.

Phoebe said, “You have a good relationship with Cameron. You should be able to ask him about something that happened a couple of decades ago.”

He looked at her meaningfully and then put the photo down, “Of course, I can check it but I am afraid the truth might surprise you.”

Phoebe frowned, “What do you mean?”

Daniel smiled, “Nothing. I am just saying, it might.” Phoebe stood up and said, “Then I will go now.” “Do you want me to drop you?”

Phoebe glanced at him and said indifferently, “No need. Help me deal with these things. After all this is done, I will give you what you want.”

Daniel raised his eyebrows, “Then I will get on with it.”

After Phoebe left, Daniel looked at the photo in his hand and dialed a number, “Phoebe just gave me a photo and asked me to help her find out the truth about what happened twenty years ago.”

There was a pause on the other end of the call before the voice said, “What truth does she want to know?”

“I don’t know. It looks like she has guessed that what is happening this time is related to what happened twenty years ago. She is trying to find the crucial points so everything can be traced.” Daniel had some suspicions, “But looking at her, I already have a plan.”

“What did she say?”

“She said that as long as she knows what happened twenty years ago, she will have a way to turn the situation around.” Soon, the voice on the other side of the phone said, “Phoebe is very smart. Be careful that she doesn’t find out about you.” Daniel said, “I definitely won’t get exposed, but…”

Seeing Phoebe looking like she was holding a winning certificate in her hand, she must have had some crucial evidence or clue in her hand.

“First, look into what she really wants and find the right time to tell her the truth.”

“All of it?”

‘Tell her everything that she wants to know.”

After hanging up the phone, Daniel looked at the photo thoughtfully.

He had the feeling that she wanted to do more than just wanting to know the truth.

Even if the Steward Group pushed a few senior executives to take the blame, temporarily suppressing the public opinion, but it resulted in many loopholes being coming to the surface. Not only that, but many people from the outside world have their sights set on the Steward group and among them was Clarence.

If Phoebe failed to handle this matter well, or was a bit thoughtless, the Steward Group was going to have to change its name.
Charles, the biggest shareholder and the chairman of the group, was going to face imprisonment.

Once this happened to Charles, Phoebe’s life would not be easier.

But she wanted to find out the truth about twenty years ago at a time like this.

Daniel laughed lightly. She was a really filial daughter, not knowing how Charles would react.
At night, Stella sat at the desk, holding a pocket watch, not knowing what she was thinking.
It had been so long that she wasn’t able to find any useful information.

Stella took a deep breath, put down the pocket watch and reopened the draft sketch. When she turned over the previously designed pocket watch necklace, her eyes glimmered slightly.

Since the scene Modesty made at the charity banquet, the necklace had disappeared into thin air.

Speaking of it, Phoebe had also approached her at that time.

Only Modesty knew where the necklace was now.
Stella closed the draft and laid down on the bed. She closed her eyes, preparing to go to sleep.

As soon as she fell asleep, she had that dream again. The monstrous fire and deafening explosions, along with the horrible and terrifying screaming, all if it was exceptionally clear in this slow and long nightmare.

She woke up suddenly, gasping for breath and feeling that her back was slick with sweat.

Stella turned her head and found that her phone on her nightstand was shaking.

She picked it up and looked at it. It was Clarence.

After calming down for a few seconds, she picked up the call, “It’s so late, Mr. Conrad did something happened?” “Nothing. I was missing you.”

Stella, “…”

Her heart, which she had calmed down with difficulty, began to beat fast again.

Clarence asked, “When are you going to move out?”

“I have no such plan for the time being.”

On the other end of the call, Clarence was silent.

Stella was about to speak, but when she heard a faint cry of a baby through the call, she paused and asked, “Where are you?” “At home.”

“Then you…”

‘It is the sound of my TV.”

After a brief moment, the baby’s cries ceased.

Stella responded, “Oh.” Then she glanced at the time and said, “You don’t want to sleep?”

Clarence said, “Can’t sleep.”

Stella said in all seriousness, “But I am going to sleep.”

“You sleep. I will stay with you through the phone.”
