Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1450
Time Would Not Stop
“That’s wonderful!” Ben exclaimed. “Ms. Lindberg, you are always two steps ahead of us.”
Looking at Zachary, who was lying in bed, Charlotte proclaimed, “In the past, he has always fought alone. But this time, I will stand by his side and face this with him!”
“We’re lucky to have you here,” Ben remarked gratefully. “Mr. Nacht has a keen eye indeed!”
“That goes without saying.” His flatter made her chuckle. “All right now, you should get to work while I stay with him.”
Charlotte, who had not slept for a night, could finally take a breather since her plan was already in motion.
After taking a shower and changing into her pajamas, she returned to the bedroom and found that Zachary was still in deep slumber.
Lifting the sheets, she carefully lay down beside him. Although she was worried about waking him up, she still could not resist the urge to touch his handsome face.
Then, she leaned closer, kissed him on his cheek, and whispered, “I will definitely save you. There’s no doubt about it.”
As if he heard her words, Zachary moved slightly.
Putting her arms around him, she gradually fell asleep.
Due to exhaustion, she slept so soundly that she did not even notice when Zachary was awake.
Having woken up from a nightmare, Zachary was drenched in sweat. Instinctively, he looked to his side. Only when he saw Charlotte snuggling up to him did he finally calm down.
A moment ago, he dreamt that he was in a place that was enveloped in darkness. There, he searched for a ray of light or even a path to escape. Unfortunately, he found neither.
As he continued to walk forward aimlessly, he noticed that he was standing by the edge of a precipice. Any misstep would cause him to fall into the abyss.
Stopping in his tracks frantically, he dared not take another step. However, he had no idea where else to go either.
Suddenly, a ray of light emerged from behind him. Just when he turned around to walk toward it, he felt a pair of hands pushing him, causing him to fall into the abyss.
The excruciating pain he experienced from having all his bones shattered felt so real. It was as if he was not dreaming.
Therefore, the moment he awoke, his eyes were filled with terror. Luckily, when he saw Charlotte beside him, he slowly recollected himself.
With her by his side, he feared nothing.
Putting his arm around her shoulder, he gently pulled her close. Then, he leaned forward to kiss her forehead. When he caught a whiff of her refreshing scent, all he felt was bliss.
At that instant, he truly hoped that time would slow down.
Unfortunately, time would not stop.
Just like that, the days went by one by one.
Francesco did not appear, neither did she contact Charlotte.
When the global search notice was issued, it caused an uproar on the internet. Many came forward to provide information. Unfortunately, there was still no progress at all.
Ben and the others grew increasingly anxious while Robbie was ready at all times. The moment Francesco showed herself, he would pinpoint her location at once.
Much to their disappointment, three days passed without a word from her.
Consequently, everyone felt disheartened to the extent that they doubted themselves, wondering if they had gotten something wrong.
As for Zachary, his condition had improved a lot. Therefore, he went to the office every day and held meetings with the company’s upper management. He would also entrust Johann and Spencer with a myriad of matters.
After all, he no longer held out any hope that he would ever recover. All he wanted to do was to make all the necessary arrangements in his remaining days so that Charlotte would inherit a company that was on a firm footing.
At the same time, his urgency for organizing the wedding increased. At the very least, he wanted to give Charlotte a proper wedding before his passing.
On that day, Lucy came forward to remind Zachary. “Mr. Nacht, Gold Group is holding a banquet tonight to celebrate the launch of their project. Ms. Gold called just now and wanted to know if you’re attending.”
Zachary had almost forgotten about the matter and only remembered when Lucy asked him about it. Nodding, he replied, “Yes, have you prepared the gift I told you to?”
