Although he parted ways with Zuriel Perth on bad terms, Neil still got the most important clue from him. A vital clue he missed.
Why didn’t he think about the relationship between Warren Silas and the current Silas family? Well, he did think about it, but the information they found about Warren Silas before this didn’t have anything to do with the Silas family.
After all, there were many people who might have been named Silas too. No one could stipulate that one Silas must be related to the other Silas.
It turned out that Warren was the actual elder brother of the
current Old Master Silas, Andrew Silas, the head of a powerful family in Country A. That was to say, Mia Kyle was related to the Silas family.
Neil gently tapped on the leather chair rhythmically with his fingers. He squinted his eyes and looked out of the window.
This matter seemed to be more complicated than he had imagined.
Should he tell Mia about it?
He’d better not. At least not before he managed to get any evidence to prove the relationship between the two families, he could not tell Mia.
Mia was impulsive and bad-tempered. She was already the mother of a seven-year-old child, but she never considered any consequences before she acted.
However, it was not all her fault entirely. In fact, Neil was also responsible for Mia’s unrestrained personality.
If he paid more attention to Mia and kept her in check, she would not be so impulsive. All these years, he had never controlled her, he even added more fuel to the fire.
As he was thinking about it, a phone call came. Without looking at the phone number, Neil knew it was from Kevin
He did not look at the phone screen and answered it. “Don’t worry. Little Karen is not just your daughter, she is our treasure. Anyone who threatens her, I will know what to do.”
“Mm,” Kevin replied with his signature brief answer. Even though Neil knew him very well, he still frowned. Neil said discontentedly, “I say, Matthew, can’t you utter a
few nice words to me? I am your Uncle for God’s sake!”
Kevin answered frankly, “Sure.” Neil asked, “Matthew, are you deliberately getting on my
What was this attitude?
It really looked deliberate now.
Kevin added, “I don’t have the time to make you angry. Do you have anything else to tell me? If you don’t, I’m going to hang up.”
Neil was probably burning up. “Matthew, is this the attitude you should have when you ask me to run your errands?”
When facing other people, no matter how agitated they made him, he could deal with them calmly. But every word his nephew said would make him jump in anger.
Kevin was still calm and said, “You don’t want to do it?”
Neil was speechless.
Well, it was true. He was willing to do it. Neil added, “There’s nothing now. I’ll tell you if there’s any
new information.” On the other side of the phone, Kevin did not speak again, nor did he hang up the phone. Obviously, he had not heard what he wanted to hear, but he was too lazy to ask more.
Having been Kevin’s uncle for decades, Neil knew him very well and said, “Don’t worry. Karen’s fine. Today, she took her Little Aunt and Levi to walk around the City.”
“Okay. I’ll hang up now.” After hearing what he wanted to hear, Kevin did not linger for another second. He hung up the phone as soon as he said so.
Hearing the busy tone on his phone, Neil didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. When he was younger, he was always angered by two
people. One was his father and the other was his sister. Now there were two people who could piss him off. One was Matthew and the other was Mia, and both of them were children that were raised by his own sister.
Was this karma?
Seeing Kevin hung up the phone, Karen Daly shook her head helplessly and said, “I mean, Director Kevin, do you really not know that you will make Uncle angry like this?”
Kevin looked up at Karen and replied indifferently, “What does he being angry to have anything to do with me?”
Other than his wife, he wouldn’t care if he made anyone else
Karen shook her head helplessly again. “Director Kevin, do you really think there’s no problem with your way of
Director Kevin had poor emotional intelligence, but he had a high IQ. Did he really not know what words could be
Kevin was busy with his work, but he still did not forget to look up at Karen, who was talking beside him. “Is there any problem?”
So he really felt that there was no problem. Karen really didn’t know whether she should continue this
topic or not
Kevin held Karen’s hand and said, “I still have some work to do. You can rest up first. Don’t have to wait for me.”
Only she could nag so much, standing beside him. If it were someone else, that person would probably be thrown out of the window already.
Kevin always had a pet peeve. When he was at work, he never allowed anyone to talk to him. But only Karen could. It was precise because Karen could do that for so many years that she had never known that Kevin had such a pet
Karen said, “Have the milk first.”
She deliberately brought him a glass of warm milk and listened to the phone conversation with Neil. He was the one who asked Neil for a favor, but he acted like he was the big boss.
This man was probably sitting at the top position for too long. He didn’t even know how to respect the elders in the family.
Kevin drank the milk and said, “If you have anything you’re not satisfied with just say it. I will listen.”
Karen replied fast, “I don’t.”
Kevin raised his eyebrows. “If you don’t, then what are you muttering about in your heart?”
Karen just looked at him blankly.
Was this person a human?
For a moment, he didn’t know that Neil was angry because of his words, and at the same time, he could guess that she was muttering in her heart.
Just as Karen was in a daze, Kevin pulled her to sit on his thigh and held her in his arms. He lowered his head and rubbed her neck. “Karen, you don’t know how much I like you.”
He liked her, so he was willing to understand her. That was why he could see what she was thinking through her expression
Kevin’s sudden confession of love shocked Karen. When she saw his attentive gaze, her face unconsciously flushed. This man never knew how to speak lovingly before. Now
that he suddenly said so, could it be that he wanted to do
something to her?
Thinking of what he wanted to do with her, Karen’s face turned extremely red.
She said, “No, no!”
Kevin chuckled and said, “What do you mean no?”
