Returning from the Dead: His Secret Lover – Chapter 1084

What?

Instantly, Devin’s expression changed, and he stopped in his tracks.

He fervently denied, “What are you talking about? Why won’t I be happy about it?”

“There’s no need to lie to me. I’m not Sabrina anyway.” Solomon saw through him and unapologetically pointed out the facts.
It left Devin speechless.

Staring down at the man in the wheelchair, he finally spoke after some time. “I might have to go back again.”

“Does this have to do with the Jadesons?” Solomon asked.

Surprised, Devin blurted, “Do you know what happened?”

“Nope, but I have noticed how distracted you seem over the last few days, so it wasn’t hard to guess.” Solomon shrugged.

Instead of telling Devin about the men he sent to Jadeborough to look into the matter, Solomon passed it off as something he picked up from the other man’s behavior.

Nonetheless, he heard nothing substantial from the people he sent there. The only news he received was the troubles the Jadesons seemed to be facing.

Two people had passed on.
“Yes, I do have some problems and have to head back to resolve them. As for Sabrina-”

Salomon interrupted. “How long do you need to be there?”

At once, Devin’s eyes lit up, and he stated, “I won’t be away for long. It will take about two to three days, and I’ll hurry back.”

Two to three days? That isn’t too long.

Letting out a breath of relief, Solomon assured him, “Sure. You don’t have to worry about Sabrina because I will care for her. Go ahead and do what you have to do.”

Not only did he support Devin’s decision to head home, but he also did so without any terms.

The tightly knitted brows on Devin’s face finally loosened, and the worry in his eyes had also disappeared. He could finally put aside his concerns now.

What was there to worry about when Solomon would be there to take care of Sabrina? The same day, Devin left the hospital.

Of course, he did not tell Solomon the truth. Instead of returning to Jadeborough, he booked a helicopter from Jetroina and flew to Zarain as soon as he could.

At Avenport, Sebastian was pondering over the matter too.

Ever since Jocelyn died, Karl told him that the person he went up against was a force to be reckoned with. The man had the audacity and skills to murder Jocelyn in front of him.

Therefore, Sebastian realized that the situation might be grimmer than he thought.
Karl was a top agent he personally recruited from the foreign forces.
Yet, the other man was able to kill Jocelyn under his nose.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Hayes. I wasn’t a good enough match for him. Things might have turned out differently if Calvin were there.” Karl lowered his head in guilt.

Calvin?

Sebastian felt as though he was stabbed in the heart when he heard that name.
He felt the pain spread through his body, and he could even feel it in his bones.
It was a name that would haunt him for life.

“All right. You can put up a bounty for people in the underworld who can identify this man. He must not be an ordinary man since he could kill a person with a scalpel in such a clean way. Offer a handsome amount of money, and I’m sure someone will be willing to dig out all the information we need.”

If Sebastian was not a president of a company and sitting in an office like this, Karl thought he could pass off as a mafia boss.
Soon, Karl left the room.

That afternoon, Sasha was also dealing with the Jadesons’ matters. Funnily, she was not out and about, but she was comforting someone over the phone.

Janice: Sasha, I can’t do it anymore. If I continue, I might go crazy.

While having breakfast, Sasha was staring at her phone all morning.

When the notification of Janice’s text popped out in her phone, she could barely swallow her calzone.

She can’t do it anymore? Does it mean she doesn’t want to take charge of the Oceanic Estate? How can that work? Without her, who else can take her reins? We can’t hand it back to Old Mr. Jadeson.

After swallowing her calzone, Sasha could only try to comfort Janice patiently.
Sasha: Aunt Janice, don’t rush things! Why can’t you do it anymore? Tell me about it in detail.

Janice: This has to do with your aunt. You have no idea how many nightmares I have had in the last few days. I’m waking up from my slumber every other hour.

Janice started complaining.
Meanwhile, Sasha furrowed her brows.

She did hear of Jocelyn’s death that morning. Everyone was talking about her being murdered, and she had been too shocked to respond then.

It was too sudden.
Therefore, it was only natural for her to feel scared.
Sasha: Aunt Janice, this has nothing to do with you, so you don’t have to take it to heart.

Janice: That is not it. The people at The Ataraxy said they saw her anxiously running out of here, but she never returned.
They only found her corpse floating at the pier when Colton ordered a search for her.

Janice decided to send another text.

Janice: Then, I went there with Olivia to see it for ourselves. In the end, I had to witness that scene. Sasha, you have to understand that I can’t take it anymore.

In the last message, she sent a series of crying emojis.

Staring at the messages, Sasha took a long time to process them, not sure how to comfort Janice.
