Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1504
“Rest well, Daddy.” Robbie expressed his concern to Zachary before turning his attention to Charlotte. “Mommy, don’t forget to visit Ellie in the hospital when you’re free.”
“How’s Ellie?” Charlotte hastened to ask, “Did she talk to you today?”
“She said she’s scared, but when I asked her what she is scared of, she cried immediately and wouldn’t talk clearly…” Robbie explained. “When we left just now, she kept asking for you.”
“I’ll visit her at the hospital later,” she said. “Okay. Go back to your room now.”
“All right.” Robbie looked at Zachary and inclined his head as a greeting before leaving.
“What happened to Ellie?” Zachary asked.
“The fire incident traumatized her,” Charlotte answered briefly before heading to the closet. “I told you before when we were in the car.”
Zachary wanted to follow her to the closet, but his injuries hurt so bad that he had to walk over slowly. By the time he reached the closet, she had already changed into a fresh set of clothes.
“I’m going to the hospital now. Take a good rest at home,” she said while tying up her long hair.
“I’ll go with you,” he quickly offered. “Ellie is my child too. I’m worried about her.”
“I know, but you’re not feeling well either, so you should rest more.” Charlotte cupped his face with her hands. “Besides, there’s still a lot of work waiting for us to settle. I need you to recuperate fast so that you can help me out with it.”
“All right, I have to go now.” Charlotte kissed him on his forehead and left in a hurry. “Go and take a shower. Mrs. Rawlston will bring your meal over soon.”
Zachary’s eyes darkened as he watched her leave.
Once the sound of Charlotte’s footsteps faded, he started looking around as if studying the room. Then, he made his way to the bathroom.
In the meantime, Charlotte told Morgan to stay in the house while she and Lupine brought a few maids to the hospital.
Halfway down Northridge, they bumped into Gordon and his men.
After parking the cars aside, Gordon got out of his car and asked, “Have you brought that man home?”
“You mean Mr. Nacht?” Lupine took a glance at Charlotte before persuading Gordon in a gentle voice, “Gordon, Ms. Lindberg and Mr. Nacht are now married. Regardless of the family feud in the past, we should show Mr. Nacht some respect now.”
“That’s not what I meant…” Gordon frowned as if he was hesitant to speak.
“What’s wrong?” Charlotte knew something was on his mind, so she suggested, “Let’s talk in the car.”
After instructing all the other bodyguards to travel in another car, Lupine took the driver’s seat while Gordon was in the front passenger seat.
While Lupine was driving, Gordon started voicing out his concern.
“Ms. Lindberg, don’t you feel there’s something weird about Mr. Nacht? He was actually awake when I sneaked into the ward. The moment he saw me, he was evidently shocked and panicked.”
“You met him?” Charlotte asked.
“Our eyes met for about three seconds, but his reaction was very weird,” he said with a frown.
After thinking about it for a while, he analyzed, “Mr. Nacht and I might have only met a few times before this, but from what I know, he’s a sophisticated man who’s capable of handling any situation calmly. Yet, when he saw me, he looked stunned. I could even sense panic in his eyes. There’s just something bizarre about that man.”
Upon hearing that, Charlotte was silent for a moment before she asked, “Did you speak to him?”
“Nope. When I was about to approach him, a doctor came in, so I had to sneak out through the window,” Gordon replied. “Judging from the hospital’s security, they must have made preparations for this beforehand!”
