Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1355
After ending the call, Charlotte started packing for her trip to Mount Phoenix on the following day.
Just then, her phone rang. Seeing that it was from an unknown caller, she was about to reject it until she noticed the last few digits of the number and decided to pick it up. “Hello?”
“Charlotte?” An attractive voice sounded from the other end of the line. “Is that you?” the man asked tentatively.
Charlotte was stunned for a moment before realizing who it was. “Michael?”
“It’s really you! That’s great!” Michael was so excited that he started speaking incoherently. “I thought I would never be able to see you again. I really didn’t expect… Where are you now? Can we meet up? I just returned to H City.”
“I…” She paused to think for a moment and decided not to tell him her address at Northridge. “Where are you staying at? I’ll go to you instead.”
“I’m staying at Skyview Hotel.” After replying, he hastened to ask, “Charlotte, is it far from you? I can pick you up.”
“No need,” she responded, glancing at her watch. “I’ll see you at the hotel’s restaurant in an hour.”
“Sure, I’ll be waiting. See you later.”
Hanging up the phone, Charlotte ordered Lupine to get the car ready and set off for Skyview Hotel to meet Michael right away.
On the way down the mountain, she saw how the sunset gave a beautiful orange tinge to the sky and illuminated the forest.
Charlotte gazed at the glorious scenery outside with narrowed eyes as memories of the past came to her mind.
After dating Hector at a young age, she was entangled with Zachary by accident, followed by Louis. Throughout all the events, Michael had always been her constant friend.
Back when she decided to get engaged to Hector, Michael left for overseas and was unreachable for five years. Subsequently, she got together with Zachary, breaking his heart again.
Later on, because of Hector and Helena’s incident, which caused the Brown family and the Sterling family to get into trouble, Michael returned to settle some matters. After that, she lost touch with him again.
Even when Charlotte and Zachary got married, the man did not return. He also did not show up when she was in deep water.
Yet, he returned all of a sudden.
Even though Charlotte did not know the reason for Michael’s return, he would always be her most trusted friend.
“Ms. Lindberg, I did some investigations just now. After her act of conspiring against Luna was exposed, Helena was jailed and has likely been released recently. My guess is that Mr. Brown is here to bring Helena back to M Nation,” Lupine reported while handing over her findings to Charlotte.
Charlotte frowned after browsing through the information. “Helena was the one who instigated the men to rape Luna and even tried to kill people to keep a lid on that matter. How is it possible that she’s only jailed for twenty-seven months for committing such a heinous act?”
“The Brown family must have pulled some strings for her to be released early,” Lupine replied. “I checked the previous records. She was supposed to serve a thirteen-year sentence.”
Charlotte remained silent, the crease between her brows deepening. She was considered a witness for the crime back then and was even threatened by Helena. If it were not for Zachary, she would have been killed.
However, as she was unable to betray her conscience, Charlotte still ended up testifying against Helena.
I suppose she must hate me to the core.
“Do you think Helena is also staying at Skyview Hotel?” Lupine asked, frowning. “If she’s there, it would be awkward for you two to meet.”
“Given Michael’s considerate nature, he will ensure that we don’t bump into each other,” Charlotte said confidently. “Besides, even if we do meet, Helena should be the one feeling awkward. She’s the vicious one who did terrible things, not me.”
“That makes sense.” Lupine nodded before continuing, “Oh, while I was investigating Helena, I also looked into Mr. Sterling’s situation.”
“Hmm?” Charlotte turned to look at her.
“Mr. Sterling received a two-year sentence and was released a few months ago,” Lupine said softly. “It’s not known if he has contacted anyone from the Brown family. I remember that when he got into trouble back then, his parents migrated to Caspardion with his son, Timothy.”
