Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1375
Zachary looked away and fell into deep thought. “Continue investigating. I want you to find out who checked in to the hotel yesterday.”
“Sure.” Ben left to carry out the order.
Zachary massaged his brows and got ready to go through some documents, but before he could work, the voices of children came from outside. “Daddy! Can we come in?”
Zachary quickly sat up to make sure he looked okay. “Come in!”
The children opened the door and ran in happily, but the moment they saw the bandage on Zachary’s head, their faces changed.
“Daddy…” Ellie broke down in tears when she saw him.
“What happened to you…”
Behind her, Jamie was trying his best to force back his tears. Robbie had told him to stay strong and hold back their tears no matter what; however, despite his efforts, tears still rolled down his cheeks.
“Are you okay, Daddy?”
Even Robbie was starting to choke on his words.
Daddy had always been their superhero. There was nothing he could not do. They had never seen him sick before.
Seeing him hurt was a huge blow for the children.
They felt as if their whole world was crumbling.
Zachary held out his hands and hugged the children affectionately.
The kids hugged him back carefully, afraid that they would hurt Zachary.
“How dare they do this to you,” Jamie warned, “I’ll beat them up to a pulp!”
Zachary laughed and ruffled his hair. “Leave this to Mr. Ben. He can do a better job than you. You can save the world in the future after you grow up.”
“Hey, Daddy, are you looking down on me? Fine. I will grow up into a superman.”
“Ha. Are you sure? I’ll still be around when you grow up though. I’ll still be the superman of the world.”
Everyone giggled at the banter and the tension eased.
“Exactly. There’s no way I can beat you, Daddy,” Jamie said timidly.
Zachary pinched his cheek and nodded. “Robbie, how are studies coming along with Mr. Sterk?”
“He’s a great scientist. I’ve learned a lot from him.”
Robbie went on to share all the interesting knowledge he learned.
“Mr. Sterk is already old. He doesn’t remember things as well as he used to, so just make sure you’re patient with him, alright?”
“I will, Daddy,” Robbie replied.
“What about you, Ellie? How are…”
“My studies are fine. I’ve been attending piano and dance classes.”
The little girl did not even wait for Zachary to finish his sentence. “Don’t worry about me. You need to rest and get well soon so you can play with us.”
“Since when did you take after your mother, huh?”
Zachary squeezed her cheeks tenderly.
“Daddy, are you saying that Mommy nags too much? I’m gonna tell her.”
Ellie puckered her lips and frowned at Zachary. “I’m gonna ask Mommy to punish you!”
Zachary chuckled looking at the cute girl. He figured this must be how Charlotte looked like when she was young.
“Daddy…” Ellie became downcast again looking at Zachary. “You have to be safe, okay? I want you to stay healthy so you can see all of us grow up.”
