MY WIFE IS A HACKER CHAPTER 2712-Did I disturb you?” Nicole asked when she saw him approaching her.
“Nope.” Jared smiled, gently stroking her hair. “Just sleep. I’ll watch over you.”
A warm feeling surged in Nicole’s heart in an instant. She held Jared’s hand, closed her eyes, and fell asleep, feeling content.
Jared watched Nicole quietly, waiting for her to drift away before getting up and returning to the desk.
His secretary had sent many files over to him, and so, he went on to get busy with his work.
Meanwhile, Damien’s house was empty and silent now that Damien was alone in it. Ever since he heard about what happened to Chloe, the air around him had been dark and oppressive.
In the previous incident, Miley had taken the blame for Chloe, who was now arrested as well. Even Everett had fled abroad. This led him to wonder why his luck had been so rotten. It made no sense as to why he had been thwarted time and again.
‘Nicole is just a country bumpkin. Why is she so good at everything?’ he fumed.
He became livider the more he thought about it.
Gritting his teeth, he wondered, ‘How is it that our family ended up like this ever since Nicole came back?’ Then, he firmed his grip on his phone and hesitated for a moment before dialing a number.
“Dad, didn’t I say not to call me?” Everett’s angry voice came through.
“Chloe got into trouble. Nicole has set her up…” Damien quickly reported the situation to Everett.
After a moment of silence on the phone, Everett said, “So, what do you want me to do?”
“I can’t take this! I can’t let Nicole win!” Damien gritted his teeth. “Find someone for me, someone who has never been to San Joto! Someone inconspicuous, and also…”
“Give it three days. They will contact you within three days.”
After saying that, Everett hung up.
Damien breathed a sigh of relief. He had no choice but to turn to Everett. He knew that when Everett left, the latter had informed them not to contact him to avoid any unnecessary problems, and that he would return when the time was right. However, the situation was different now, as he had no one else to turn to.
With all said and done, Everett had promised to hire someone for him, so all he had to do was plan the rest of it now.
The setting sun cast a warm glow on the western horizon as evening approached.
The living room in the Riddle residence was bustling as both Lulu and June had come over after work. Everyone had already been informed about Chloe’s situation, and since Nicole had not gone to work in the afternoon, everyone was naturally worried about her.
“I’m relieved to see you doing okay.” Lulu eyed Nicole, feeling that she looked alright.
“Don’t worry about me, I have always been fine,” Nicole reassured them, knowing that they were concerned about her.
“Hey Nicole. Has Uncle Damien received the news already? Why aren’t there any responses from him at all?” Samuel asked,confused.
‘At a time like this, they should at least give us an apology, right?’ he thought.
“Grandpa has already severed ties with him,” Nicole calmly replied. “Besides, it’ll be nigh impossible for him to come over and apologize to me in person.”
If anything, he was probably harboring a great deal of resentment for her at this point.
“I just feel it’s not normal for him to be this quiet,” Samuel said, sounding worried.
Even if he was pretending to be okay, it was still odd that he had not displayed any sort of reaction at all.
“Oh, it’s completely normal,” Nicole said as she narrowed her eyes.
Regardless of what Damien was showing the rest of the family now, Nicole knew for sure that he was feigning it all. His true thoughts likely revolved around nothing but pure, unadulterated hatred.
She glanced at Jared and found him looking at her. In that brief moment of eye contact, they both understood each other’s thoughts.
