Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1349

Despite the animosity in his tone, Zachary’s words carried the weight of a man’s responsibility and promise.

Charlotte expressed her gratitude again and was then stumped for words.

“Why are you so useless?” He glared at her. “Aren’t you always acting like a tyrant whenever you’re with me? Why were you being such a coward in front of him?”

His bombardment of questions stunned her. “When was I acting like a coward? I retorted him!”

“Retorted? You should’ve thrown that contract right in his face!” Zachary was exasperated. “Didn’t you see the way he picked on you? Grow a spine, why don’t you?”

Charlotte was speechless.

“You only bare your teeth at your own family, but you’re a coward whenever you deal with outsiders!” the man spat out with a glare before turning to leave.

Charlotte stared at his back, unable to retaliate.

Bare my teeth at my own family? Are we even still considered family?

As that thought crossed her mind, an unusual emotion surged within her.

Upon getting into his car, Zachary ordered Ben, “Gather all the shareholders of the Gymnasium Project and have them see me in three days.”

“Yes, Sir.” Ben relayed his order at once.

At the same time, Zachary’s phone kept ringing. Seeing that it was Robert trying to reach him, he rejected the call and blocked the latter’s number.

“I’ve contacted all the shareholders,” said Ben after hanging up his phone. “What do you intend to do, Mr. Nacht?”

“Robert has gone too far. He knows who Charlotte is to me, yet he went ahead and tried to push her around.” Zachary seethed. “It’s about time I teach him a lesson.”

“Understood.” Ben understood how protective he was of Charlotte. No matter what became of their relationship, Zachary would never let anyone pick on her.

Besides, the fact that Robert completely defied his warning and came looking for Charlotte infuriated Zachary even more.

Ben would have tried to talk his boss out of doing anything rash if it were before. However, he no longer intended to do so, considering Zachary’s condition.

He can do whatever he wants. Nothing else matters as long as it makes him happy.

“It’s still early. Do you want to see Ms. Gold?” Ben asked carefully.

Zachary pondered for a moment before replying flatly, “Not now.”

“All right.” Ben took his phone out. “I’ll reply to her text, then. She was asking about you.”

“Just tell her I’ll meet her another day.”

“Yes, Sir.”

Back in the middle of the mountain, Nancy was still waiting in the car. Since Zachary would pass by this route after dealing with his affairs, she was hoping to meet him again.

Yet, after waiting for so long, all she got was Ben’s text informing her that Zachary would not be heading down the mountain that day. As a result, they would not be able to meet.

Nancy felt utterly dejected. Every time she met Zachary, she would get her hopes up, only for her plans to be ruined time and time again. At that point, the usually placid woman could no longer keep a cool head.

It’s about time I take action.

“They’re here, Ms. Gold,” her subordinate reported softly.

Nancy raised her gaze and saw the white Bentley making its way down the mountain. It was the Laurent family’s car.

As expected, the fancy car came to a stop when the passenger in it caught sight of Nancy. Robert exited the vehicle with his subordinates and approached her. “Ms. Gold! What brings you here?” he asked courteously.

“If you hadn’t come by, Sir Robert, I probably would’ve been on board Mr. Nacht’s yacht by now.”

Nancy spoke tactfully, but the meaning behind her words was obvious.

Robert was taken aback for a moment but quickly responded, “It looks like I’ve inadvertently ruined your date with Mr. Nacht. I’m truly sorry about that!”

“Did you come to see Ms. Lindberg?” Nancy asked, smiling.

“That’s right,” the man answered straightforwardly. “I wanted her to back out of the Gymnasium Project, but she refused. It doesn’t help that Mr. Nacht’s decided to interfere, so I’m in a bit of a tough spot now.”
