Returning from the Dead: His Secret Lover – Chapter 1073

Sasha who knew her daughter very well, started connecting the dots. “What’s wrong? Why did she suddenly ask you to bathe her?” she asked anxiously.

“Um… The parent-teacher conference didn’t go well,” that man spat out those words stiffly through gritted teeth. He seemed to be a little frustrated in the video call.

Sasha fell silent as many possibilities of what might have happened ran through her mind.

Then, she turned away to suppress her laughter.

Forget it, let’s drop the topic. Otherwise, I’ll land myself in hot soup too.

Sasha switched to an earlier subject, “Connor’s wife opened a hotel in Dragon Valley.”

“Dragon Valley?” He was surprised.

Sasha nodded. “Yup. I’ve been there. It’s not a bad location, quite near to the State Guesthouse.”

“When did she get into the White House social circle?”

Wow, one can’t be more direct than that!

Annoyance laced his icy tone. Sasha could sense the hostility portrayed in his expression over the phone.

She shrugged her shoulders. “I’m not sure. Do you want to investigate further?”

“No need!” Sebastian rejected the idea immediately.

He picked up the phone and sat down in front of the camera without buttoning up his shirt. “You don’t have to do anything.
Just come back tomorrow, and I’ll handle this matter.”

The last fine sounded like a command.
Nothing is more important than her safety.
Sasha hung up the call.

That night, a platoon appeared unannounced at Shirley’s newly opened hotel. Within half an hour, more than ten pounds of drugs were seized.

The fierce knocking on the door woke Shirley up.

Fearfully, she went to answer the door. As soon as she opened it, a group of people rushed in at once and landed a kick on her chest.

“Restrain her and bring her to Old Mr. Jadeson!” It was Mark. His bloodshot eyes were staring at Shirley with a malicious intent.
Upon being kicked, Shirley was shocked to her wits and fainted right away.

Two hours later around midnight, the news about the hotel being ransacked got to a man in a suburb bistro. Standing behind the curtain, he was so furious that he flipped the table in front of his bed.

‘I thought things were going really well? Why did something like this happen all of a sudden?”

“Um… The granddaughter-in-law of Jonathan came by unexpectedly. During the day, she went looking for Shirley with the woman from Gossamer Creek. Who knew that fool gave it away…” a man in black reported while kneeling before the curtain.
This time, his fingers were fine, and he did not seem frail and feeble.

“Granddaughter-in-law? Are you referring to the woman who couldn’t save Baylor?” “Yes!” The silhouette bowed even lower.
Shadows like them did not deserve a chance to introduce their names to the master, except for Baylor.

The man behind the curtain let out a devilish cackle. In a pitch dark environment, his voice was exceptionally terrifying, giving others goosebumps.

“How annoying! Fine. Jonathan has been trying so hard to drive people around him away. Now, we do have one offering herself voluntarily. So, we shall accept her with open arms. Take her as an appetizer.”

“Master, you mean…”

“Get rid of her.” the man instructed placidly.

Upon hearing that, the shadow was taken aback and momentarily went against the rule by lifting his head. “Master, you…” Bang! A crisp gunshot was heard.

Before he could finish his sentence, a bullet was sent right into his collarbone. Still kneeling down on the floor, he cupped his wound to stop the blood from gushing out and collapsed on the floor.

“Are you disobeying me?”

“No… No… I’m just trying to remind you that Sebastian isn’t aware of us, Master. But… if we kill his wife, he… he may launch a crazy attack back at us…” The shadow curled into a fetal position, lying in a pool of bload. Yet, he endured the excruciating pain felt in order to give his master an answer.

Sebastian Hayes. Indeed, he’s our number one enemy. Hence, it’s best not to offend him wherever possible.

The man behind the curtain clenched his jaw as he was rendered speechless.

“Leave!” His angry bark rang through the room which was filled with a pungent stench of blood.

Subsequently, the shadow dragged his injured body out, one step at a time. Shortly after, his master left the place too.
The night then returned to its tranquil atmosphere.

As for the hotel situated in Dragon Valley, it was reduced to ashes by a blazing fire after being raided by Mark and his troop.

However, nobody knew that Sasha was taken away by a helicopter way before Mark made a move.
When Sasha woke up the next morning, she found herself on the bed at Frontier Bay.
