Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 1587
“All right. I’ll talk to Danrique.”
Actually, Charlotte knew she shouldn’t be disturbing Danrique right now. However, she had to say that to assure Johann.
“Ah, great. With Mr. Lindberg’s help, the problem will be solved.” Indeed, Johann’s sounded much relieved. “Charlotte, you must be careful. The enemy is ambitious and has set up a trap. We need to hurry.”
Charlotte said a few comforting words before hanging up. She checked Lucy’s text and confirmed that there was a rumor saying “Zachary” was going to divorce her.
There was also a rumor stating “Zachary” did a DNA test to prove the children weren’t his. He wanted to get a divorce, but Charlotte refused to sign the papers shamelessly.
Some claimed she clung to Zachary to get a part of his fortune…
The news seemed convincing enough as they even attached a few photos of “Zachary” looking cold and disgusted as though he wanted to get rid of her soon.
Furrowing her brows, Charlotte had to acknowledge that Jesse had done a good job. He plotted everything carefully with one trap after the other, so she didn’t have time to react.
After driving her to leave, he did a massive personnel reassignment. He then forced them to get a divorce. Next, he was probably going to arrange for Zachary to marry Nancy to get the Nacht family’s assets.
“How contemptible!” Morgan roared when she heard about the divorce. “Don’t agree to the divorce! Let’s see what they can do about it.”
If Charlotte were to agree to the divorce, she would be divorcing the real Zachary.
It would also mean she no longer had the right to interfere in the Nacht family’s business.
“I’m afraid I can’t stop the divorce even if I’m against it,” Charlotte stated.
Before Charlotte could answer, a text arrived on her phone. She clicked into it and saw a video of Robbie and Jamie being kidnapped.
Both boys were blindfolded and tied up with their backs to each other. They were left in a dark area as a spotlight shone on their faces. The fear on their faces was evident.
Charlotte was all agitated after viewing the video. She wanted to call the number that had sent her the video, but it was a special number that couldn’t be contacted.
Suddenly, someone started shooting them with a water gun. The boys trembled as their bodies got drenched and yelled, “Mommy! Daddy!”
Charlotte felt her heart breaking at the sight. Even her hands were shaking.
“Who sent this?” Morgan demanded. “What do they want?”
As soon as she spoke, a call from an unknown number arrived. Charlotte immediately picked it up. “Hello?”
“Did you see the children?”
The voice on the other end of the line was distorted, so she didn’t know who it was.
“B*stard!” Charlotte gritted her teeth and growled. “Come at me instead of harming the kids!”
“Don’t worry, we won’t harm the kids,” the person sneered. “As long as you’re willing to cooperate with us, they will get to go home soon.”
“What do you want?”
Charlotte forced herself to calm down, for the enemy was about to state his or her condition.
“Easy. Divorce Zachary,” came the answer. “Get the procedures done by tomorrow.”
“Will you let them go after I complete the procedures?” Charlotte knew things were not as simple as they seemed.
“Of course not.” She was right. The person added, “I want you to do three things. Completing the divorce proceedings is just one of them. After you do that, I’ll let you know about the second matter.”
“Think about it,” the person warned. “If you don’t complete the proceedings by tomorrow, you’ll receive a gift from your kids!”
