Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1367
Ben ended the call hastily and went over to greet Spencer.
“What is all this? Why didn’t you tell me about what’s going on?” Spencer glared at Ben.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Spencer.” Ben lowered his head guiltily. “Everything happened too quickly. Mr. Nacht’s condition is stable now, so we didn’t call you.”
“What do you mean by ‘stable’, huh? What’s the situation now?’
“He lost too much blood and he fainted. He already woke up in the morning. He’s just asleep now.”
“Let me see him,” Spencer said. His men pushed him toward the ward.
“Um, now might not be a good time, Mr. Spencer,” Ben said slowly.
“Why can’t I go in?” Spencer frowned.
Ben looked around and bent down to whisper in his ear. “Ms. Lindberg is inside.”
Spencer was taken aback when he heard that. He asked his subordinate to push him closer and he opened the door slightly.
When he saw the couple resting through the small crack, his expression became serious and he closed the door after that. He looked at the door for a bit and left quietly.
“What happened exactly? How did he get injured?” Spencer finally spoke when Ben was sending him off.
“I can see through all your lies, so you’d better tell me the truth,” Spencer warned, “I’ll get to the bottom of this if you keep it from me.”
Ben knew there was no getting away, so he gave an honest account of everything.
“Again?” Spencer was indignant. “These two are just not meant to be.”
“I’ve already sent some men to look into this. Don’t worry. You can’t blame Ms. Lindberg for this too. Mr. Nacht protected her because he wanted to. What matters most is now things are back to normal between the two of them,” Ben said carefully.
“It’s still too early to say if this is a good thing,” Spencer said with a sigh, “You take good care of him. Let me know if something happens.”
“Sure thing, Mr. Spencer.”
When Ben got back in, Raina was already there with a few other doctors. “How’s Mr. Nacht?”
“He woke up already. He seems okay so far.”
“Why didn’t you call me?” Raina ran over to the ward.
Before Ben could say anything, Raina had already opened the door. She was stunned when she saw Charlotte and Zachary on the bed together. She immediately stepped outside and closed the door behind her. “Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
“I was about to tell you, but you went in already…”
“Ben!” It seemed like Zachary was awakened by the commotion outside.
“Yes,” Ben replied instantly, going into the room.
“I don’t want anyone to disturb us for the next half an hour.”
Ben gestured at all the men to retreat.
Back in the room, Charlotte was awakened too. She rubbed her eyes as she got up, avoiding the wounds on Zachary’s body.
“You’re not going anywhere.” Zachary stopped her and pulled her back into his arms.
“They are still waiting outside.”
Charlotte felt bad. She knew Raina was here just now. Zachary needed to get his wounds checked.
“Let them wait.”
Zachary turned and put his forehead on Charlotte’s, rubbing his nose against hers.
“Zachary…” Charlotte saw his slender face and felt an urge to ask him about his health.
“Yes?” Zachary’s lips brushed against her cheek as he spoke.
“Um…” Charlotte changed her mind. “I think you should really let the doctors come in.”
