Chapter 111 Yvonne had been staying in a hotel for the past few days. She told the Taylor family that she had gone overseas, but in fact, she hadn’t left the country at all. The current situation was problematic because Isaac had always kept a low profile. The Sullivan family was also confident in his […]
Billionaire’s Missing Darling by Theresa Wilde
Chapter 101 Yvonne raised her gaze, her expressions filled with astonishment as she looked at Daniel. The smile at the corner of her mouth seemed a bit forced. It was the first time she had encountered such a situation. Yvonne found it hard to believe that there was someone in this world. who would actually refuse such a precious pill. Yvonne forced herself to calm down and forced a smile, Yvonne then spoke with an innocent and curious tone, “Mr. Sullivan, have you perhaps misunderstood something?” Before Daniel could respond, Yvonne spoke again, “Daniel, you surely are not misunderstanding that I have any interest in you, are you? I, Yvonne Sheeran, have my pride. I would never shamelessly cling to someone who does not regard me well. I gave Mrs. Sullivan the precious pill because I share a good rapport with her, nothing more. I kindly ask you not to presume things!” As Yvonne spoke, she kept her gaze lowered, her voice calm yet carrying a hint of coldness. Yvonne’s expression was distant, exuding an air of purity and inviolability, like an untouchable goddess of chastity. “Ms. Yvonne, it is best if there is no intention.” Daniel’s lips curved into at smile. His left hand slid into his pocket, his voice chilling. “I hope you remember what you have said today.” He was not willing to say more. Engaging in a verbal battle with a woman was both undignified and meaningless. Daniel had never liked to talk much. He preferred actions over words. Seeing this, Yvonne’s expression turned sour. She had not expected Daniel to be this diflicult to handle. The path of approaching through parents, taking an indirect approach, had always been the most reliable method. If Yvonne had any intentions toward Daniel, she would not have directly confronted Olivia in front of Daniel, knowing it would displease Daniel. The best approach to deal with Olivia was through leveraging Isabella and pressuring Olivia to leave. Unfortunately, everything that was carefully planned seemed futile in front of Daniel. Daniel did not adhere to the expected norms and played by his own rules. D Belionaire’s Missing Darling Thinking of this, Yvonne’s heart was filled with hatred. She had never seen a man so lacking in etiquette, actually causing embarrassment to a woman who openly pursued him. Was Daniel still a man? With Yvonne’s looks, wealth, and powerful connections, how could Daniel not be moved by a woman like Yvonne? Yvonne’s eyes darkened, and while Yvonne maintained her calm exterior, a murderous intent had already stirred within Yvonne towards Olivia, This woman was really in the way. Yvonne had to get rid of Olivia, Just as she was plotting against Olivia, Yvonne’s phone suddenly rang beside her. Yvonne glanced at the caller ID and a trace of disgust flashed in her eyes. Did Yvonne not tell Yunice not to call her again? If there was nothing important, they would never contact each other. Why Why was Yunice calling Yvonne at this time? Yvonne casually declined it. However, not long after Yvonne declined the call, the phone rang again. Yvonne frowned and was wondering if she should pick the call. Daniel, on the opposite side, suddenly smiled, his deep eyes shimmering with emotions that were hard to fathom. “Go ahead. It might be something important.” Yvonne glanced at Daniel, picked up her phone, and answered the call. The call was connected, and from the other end came Yunice’s angry questioning. “You bitch, you have ruined me! Did you not say that Olivia has no backing and that the Taylor family does not care about her?” Yvonne glanced at the eyes of everyone around, held her composure, and replied in a low voice, “I did not lie to you!” “I am telling you, I am screwed!” Yunice roared. “There is trouble at the hotel, and I cannot stay in Evervale anymore. You better figure out a way to settle me, or do not blame me for being heartless. I have evidence of all the things you have done!” With a sudden change in Yvonne’s expression, Yvonne’s face turned pale, struggling to control her emotions. Yvonne took a deep breath to calm herself before asking, “What exactly happened?” How could things have turned out like this? She had meticulously planned everything. How did it all go wrong? billon me’s Missing Purling +5 vouchers “What is going on?” Yunice’s voice was cold and tinged with a bitter laugh. Yunice’s eyes burned with anger. “If I had stirred up trouble with the Taylor family, I would not have been afraid. But do you know who I offended? It is Daniel Sullivan! You crazy woman, why mess with Daniel? And you dragged me into this mess, making it impossible for me to stay in Evervale. If it were not for my connections here, I would not even have a chance to leave alive!” “Yvonne, you have caused me a lot of trouble! Do you understand?” Yunice shouted. Years of effort and accumulation had been turned into nothing in an instant. If it were not for the fact that Yunice would need to rely on Yvonne in the future, Yunice would definitely want to destroy Yvonne! Upon hearing the name “Daniel Sullivan,” Yvonne felt like she was struck by lightning. Yvonne’s blood surged through her body, rushing to her head and almost making Yvonne lose her balance. Yvonne said, “I will contact you later.” Then she hung up the phone, lifting her gaze directly to Daniel. Daniel did not seem to notice Yvonne’s fear and even smiled at Yvonne, a smile so bright that it sent a chill down Yvonne’s spine despite its apparent warmth. This man was too terrifying! Yvonne stood up, clutching the precious pill tightly. Her expression, once resolute, now turned bitter as she whispered, “I will be leaving first.” Isabella was surprised as she gazed at Yvonne, standing up and about to speak. But then, Isabella’s expression tightened, her face turned pale, and she took two steps back before collapsing onto the sofa. “Mrs. Sullivan!” “Aunt Isabella!” “Mrs. Sullivan!” Cries of astonishment rang out, and Daniel reacted swiftly. He immediately instructed a servant to fetch a pill. After taking the pill, Isabella’s complexion gradually improved. Her chest and mouth no longer heaved violently, but she still had not regained consciousness. Seeing the situation, Daniel promptly made a decision. “Someone, take Mrs. Sullivan to the hospital.”
Chapter 91 Yvonne’s expression was like a venomous snake hiding in the grass, making one shudder. However, Olivia did not seem to hear her. His expression was calm and indifferent. It was as if she did not take her words to heart. She ignored Yvonne and just packed her things naturally until Yvonne couldn’t help but stand in front of her To be honest, Olivia’s performance was a little unexpected. Ordinary people would be angry when they heard someone threatening them, even if they didn’t care, and they would retort. However, Olivia did not show any emotion at all. She did not care at all. Yyonne was extremely surprised and asked her, “Why aren’t you reacting at all?” Olivia lifted her eyelids. Her beautiful round eyes emitted wisps of cold light. “How do you want me to react?” She asked back. Yvonne frowned. “Aren’t you angry? Aren’t you furious? Aren’t you afraid that I’ll really attack you?” Hearing this, Olivia finally smiled. She was carrying a cloth bag and wearing ordinary casual clothes, but she had a strong aura just by standing there. She lowered her head and smiled as if she had just heard something ridiculous “Last month.” She siz to speak slowly. Her voice was like a cello, low and pleasant, with a steady certainty. “I accidentally bumped into a three–year–old child. He was the same. He stood before me with his hands on his hips as he said ruthlessly, ‘Hey, just wait. I won’t let you off. If you dare to bump into me again, I won’t be polite to you.‘ After that, he even pulled out a plastic gun and pretended to shoot me.” With that, Olivia looked at Yvonne leisurely and mockingly. She said softly, “Ms. Yvonne, I didn’t expect you, almost 30, to be as childish as a three–year–old boy. Do you think I’m afraid of you just because you said a few words? You think too highly of yourself!” As she spoke, Olivia slowly approached Yvonne. She tilted her head and slowly rubbed her wrist. Yvonne was stunned by the coldness in Olivia’s eyes. Her face turned pale, and she couldn’t help but tremble. “What… what are you doing?” “Nothing” Olivia imitated Yvonne and put on an innocent expression. Didn’t you say before that there’s no conflict between us? I only approached you to let you understand me better. Didn’t you say that you wanted to deal with me? Didn’t you want me to wish I was dead? I’ll let you know me and let you know how much you have to do to deal with me.” As she said that, Olivia quickly extended her right hand. Before Yvonne could react, she heard a crack in her arms. They were actually out of shape! Her two arms were completely deformed and bent unnaturally. Seeing this, Yvonne’s expression changed drastically. Cold sweat dripped. down her face, and her entire body went limp. She had always been hiding behind everyone like a venomous snake, spying on others. She had never confronted her opponents like this. Such an obvious and bold threat instantly made Yvonne’s legs go weak and her entire body tremble. She thought that Olivia was a rabbit and she was a fox. She did not expect. Olivia to be a white wolf disguised as a rabbit! Yvonne trembled non–stop. She subconsciously shrank her body and looked at Olivia nervously. “What… what are you doing? Don’t mess around. It’s illegal to kill someone.” “Kill some “You th Huh… Olivia chuckled and looked at Yvonne proudly. highly of yourself. To me, you’re nothing. You’re worse than an am. I find it troublesome to trample you to death. If you hadn’t insisted on coming to me time and time again, I wouldn’t even know who you are!” She raised her hand and grabbed Yvonne’s chin. Her tone was cold. “There’s a limit to my patience. I’ll give you a warning this time. If there’s a next time…” Olivia smiled slightly and returned Yvonne’s words. “I’ll also make you wish you were dead!” With that, she patted Yvonne’s arm twice, turned around, and left. Billionare’s Missing Darling +5 vouchert As soon as Olivia left, Yvonne instantly collapsed to the ground like a deflated ball. Shivering, she took out a recording pen from her chest. On one hand, she was here to warn Olivia. On the other hand, she wanted to force her to say something inappropriate and edit it to frame her. In the end, the warning did not work. Instead, she was so frightened that her legs went weak. Fortunately, the conversation was recorded, so she didn’t suffer for nothing. Yvonne turned on the recording pen and wanted to listen to it. However, something strange happened. Other than what she said at the beginning, what Olivia said was not recorded at all. There was only static. How did that happen? Yvonne’s face was ashen. She couldn’t believe it. She opened a few documents in a row, but nothing was recorded. Just as she was panicking, the door suddenly opened. Olivia turned back and shook something in her hand. “This is a sound jammer.” Her tone was indifferent as she looked at Yvonne like a clown. “If you like Daniel, fight for it openly. Don’t play dirty tricks behind my back.” Olivia frowned as she said that. She did look down on Yvonne, who only knew how to play some tricks. She was not presentable. As soon as she entered the room, she sensed something was wrong. Because she was in the laboratory all year round, Olivia knew all kinds of machines like the back of her hand. Moreover, she was a young scientist, so the country had attached great importance to her. To preve yone from obtaining scientific secrets through eavesdropping and surveillance, she always carried a machine that could identify surveillance equipment when she went out.
Chapter 81 After pausing for a moment, Emma regained her composure. She then sneered and a hint of disdain flashed in her eyes. She had underestimated the situation. Initially, she thought Olivia’s clothes were high–end custom–made pieces. Only later did she realize that what Susan had called “only one piece” was probably just something her family’s tailor stitched together. Back when the Hushe Republic was much poorer, it was common for families to buy fabric and sew their own clothes at home. But now in the modern world, there were still people making their own clothes. How impoverished must they be! Emma found it amusing and a mocking curve formed at the corner of her mouth. “So unique. Was it made by the master who hems pants at the village entrance?” Susan hadn’t anticipated that someone like Emma, a socialite, would speak so sarcastically. She felt speechless. “Miss Emma, have you seen the clothes Olivia wears? Could the master who hems pants at the village entrance have such techniques?” Emma was taken aback. She did pay quite a bit of attention to Olivia’s. clothes. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have used clothes as a topic of discussion. It was strange when she thought about it. She knew Olivia wore clothes from street vendors, with no brand labels. Yet, she couldn’t seem to help herself from looking at her clothes. She found them distinctive and good–looking. At times, after staring for a while, Emma even despised and said to herself, “You’ve stared at cheap street vendor clothes for so long, your taste has really fallen.” Now, hearing Susan’s words, Emma realized Olivia’s clothes were indeed quite unique in terms of design and craftsmanship. Susan continued, “Miss Emma, you’re a socialite. Your taste should be quite refined. How could you not even recognize the brand of Olivia’s clothes? Is that because there are no labels or logos on them? It’s an Italian handmade brand, Bosman.” Bosman. 1/4 10:33 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers The smug mockery in Emma’s eyes was instantly shattered, and they were replaced by a profound shock. Bosman? It’s actually Bosman! Bosman was the world’s top–tier brand, renowned for its pursuit of quality. They did not put labels on their clothes, and their garments were incredibly comfortable to wear. Not only that, Bosman frequently collaborated with several other top brands internationally, creating joint collections. In other words, even top–tier brands commissioned Bosman to produce clothes, but they would only produce one piece. Bosman’s clothes were very expensive and extremely rare. Olivia herself only had three Bosman pieces, which she treasured. Now, Susan was telling her that Olivia’s entire wardrobe was filled with Bosman pieces. Emma couldn’t believe it and instinctively retorted, “Are you making this up? How is it possible that everything is Bosman?” Susan nodded. “Yes, I misspoke.” Emma felt relieved, but then Susan continued, “Bosman only makes outerwear. Olivia’s undergarments are all made by the workshop in her family. Look at the white T–shirt she’s wearing, for instance. There are hardly any seams visible, and it fits like a single piece of fabric on her body. It is extremely smooth and soft.” It seemed that Susan wasn’t satisfied with merely provoking Emma. She went on and said, “I heard that this is a craftsmanship lost for over a century. It’s even eligible for intangible cultural heritage status. The tailors in the workshop are all elderly people from Olivia’s family, and this tradition has been passed down for centuries. I once saw a pair of home pants at Olivia’s place, embroidered with patterns that looked just like the real thing.” “You’re lying!” Emma didn’t believe it. She hung up the call with a slam and ran out to find Lynn. During Olivia’s stay with the Taylor family, the servants washed her clothes, and Lynn had some of Olivia’s clothes. When she saw Emma coming to ask for Olivia’s clothes, Lynn, who had always been gentle, looked a bit embarrassed. She awkwardly took out a white T–shirt from her own wardrobe. 2/4 10:31 Billionaire’s Missing Darling 45 vouchers She explained in a low voice, “Miss Emma, it’s not that I intentionally hid Olivia’s clothes. It’s just that these clothes are so comfortable. They feel like you’re not wearing anything at all when you put them on!” She mumbled, “I don’t know where she got them from. I never expected street vendor clothes could be of such good quality,” Because the clothes were so comfortable, Lynn didn’t give them back to Olivia. She secretly kept them for herself and wore them as pajamas every night. Speaking of which, these clothes were really comfortable. They were smooth and cool against the skin, and they seemed to have magical effects. Previously, Lynn had developed numerous small red bumps on her back and neck. After wearing this piece of clothing for a while, all the red bumps on her back had miraculously disappeared. It was truly extraordinary. Lynn kept mentioning the magical aspects of the clothes to Emma. The more Emma listened, the heavier her heart grew.
Chapter 71 Olivia was silent. She had already realized that there was something wrong with her phone. Someone had tampered with it. At this time, who would still use text messages? There were many ways to communicate, such as WhatsApp and Snapchat. Now, text messages had been reduced to receiving verification codes and notifications. Olivia had not checked her messages for a long time. The other party had clearly predicted this and knew that she would not read the message, so they used the message to do the trick. If they used WhatsApp, they would be discovered immediately. Seeing Olivia’s silence, Amelia seemed to have found her weak spot. Amelia mocked, “Why? You don’t dare? Is it because you are guilty?” At this moment, Amelia was already extremely disgusted with Olivia. Amelia had a mother–daughter relationship with Olivia previously. Although Amelia did not raise Olivia, she was still Olivia’s biological mother. No matter what, Olivia came out of her womb. Although Amelia was not close to Olivia, she was still proud of Olivia deep down. This child did not have a wealthy family or top–notch resources, but she still ended up so outstanding and won an international award. But now, Amelia only had hatred towards Olivia. Amelia could not wait to expose Olivia. She stepped forward, grabbed Olivia’s hand, and unlocked it with Olivia’s fingerprint. The back of Olivia’s hand was covered in blisters. Amelia did not care at all. She pinched Olivia’s hand hard, causing Olivia to tremble in pain. Olivia’s bent and curled up in pain. Seeing Olivia’s pain, Amelia’s eyes flashed with joy. Amelia put her entire hand on Olivia’s hand and deliberately broke a few blisters. It was said that mother and daughter were connected by heart. A mother was pained when her child was suffering. However, at this moment, Amelia only wished that Olivia would die from the pain. 1/5 13:06 Billionaire & Missing Darling * vouchers After unlocking the phone, Amelia immediately opened the message and quickly found the message that the villain had mentioned. [I’ll fall into the water later. Hide in Emma’s room immediately. When she comes back, you rape that bitch. She’s enjoyed my wealth for so many years. It’s time to pay her back.] Amelia read the content aloud. Amelia could not control the trembling of her body. “It’s really you! What else do you have to deny?” As she spoke, she suddenly stepped forward and slapped Olivia hard. Olivia lowered her head and checked the blisters on her hands. She was caught off guard and was hit. Amelia had used a lot of strength. Amelia’s nails were very long, leaving a long scratch on Olivia’s face. Olivia bled. But even so, Amelia still felt angry and wanted to step forward and kick Olivia. However, Olivia had already reacted and retreated a few steps to dodge, Amelia’s eyes widened. “You still dare to dodge?” Olivia suppressed the anger in her heart and tried her best to calm down, “I didn’t send the message.” As she spoke, Olivia snatched the phone and looked at the time the message was sent. Olivia explained, “The message was sent at 10:25. I’ve already fallen into the water at this time. How can I send the message?” “You are still trying to explain?” Amelia was so angry that she stepped forward to hit Olivia. Every time Amelia’s fist landed on her body, Olivia felt as if a piece of her heart was torn off. Olivia looked calm on the surface, but her heart was already riddled with holes. Olivia did not dodge. She just lowered her head and looked at Amelia quietly, letting Amelia hit her. Amelia was a little stunned by Olivia’s calm gaze, and she subconsciously stopped. At this moment, Samuel said, “Stop quibbling.” Compared to Amelia’s emotional actions, angry, and a little disappointed towards Olivia, Samuel’s tone was that of a complete stranger. 215 13:06 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers It was as if the person in front of Samuel was not his biological daughter but an unimportant stranger. Samuel’s tone was cold. “I’ve already obtained the hotel’s surveillance footage. The time you fainted and were sent back to the guest room was 11:50. At 10:25, you didn’t fall into the water and were still on the boat.” Olivia was stunned. Impossible. She clearly remembered that when Andrew returned to deliver the lotus seed pod to her, it was 10:10 in the morning. Olivia was checking her phone and replying to her classmates‘ WhatsApp messages, so she knew the time. The seed pod was delivered at 10:10, followed by her falling into the water. By 10:25, Olivia was unconscious and it was impossible for her to send a text message. Samuel frowned and said in a cold tone,
Chapter 61 After a few failed calls, Olivia gave up and curled up on the sofa to read. It was rare for her to have free time. She did not have to busy herself with experiments or socialize with others. Olivia took out a novel and read it seriously. It had been a long time since she had read a novel. She had only read documents and information. She felt that her mind was filled with papers. and information, and there was no literary aura at all. It had to be known that she had also written a few novels during her young period. She read very quickly, almost skimming ten lines at a time. In less than an hour, she had finished reading a novel. She stood up and stretched. Seeing that it was getting late, she prepared to eat some dinner. Just as she was thinking about what to eat, Emma called. “Olivia, are you still busy? Come to my place and eat something. Ethan is here too. I’ve prepared a lot of wine. Let’s taste it tonight.” Olivia agreed. “Alright, I’ll be there in a while.” After washing her hands in the bathroom, Olivia went to Emma’s room. They had booked VIP suites. Every room had a guest restaurant where they could eat and meet guests. When Olivia came over, Emma had changed into a simple white dress. Ethan had also changed into a suit and casual clothes. Seeing that Olivia was still wearing the same clothes as before, Emma was clearly stunned and in disbelief. Then, she nodded, indicating that she understood. In the end, she went forward considerately and asked gently, “Why are you still wearing the same clothes as before? They’re a little dirty and uncomfortable. Why don’t you change into another set? I have a few sets of new clothes here. I hope you don’t mind.” She looked like an elegant noble lady meeting a bumpkin who did not know etiquette. Olivia felt that it was a little troublesome and shook her head. “It’s just a meal. I’ll change it when I sleep tonight.” Emma sat at the dining table and supported her chin with her hand. Her 1/5 13:03 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers posture was elegant. “I understand. You might not have had this habit in the past, but the Taylor family is different. The Taylor family is a wealthy family. You have to follow the rules. You can’t wear whatever you want on any occasion. Otherwise, others will laugh at you.” At this point, she turned to Ethan and said considerately, “Ethan, don’t despise Olivia. She just doesn’t know these things. I’ll teach her slowly. I promise to give you an elegant and generous wife.” After saying that, Emma criticized Olivia’s dining etiquette and said that the way she used her fork was wrong. When she said these words, she had been speaking slowly, as if she was thinking for Olivia. Fortunately, Olivia had a strong heart. If it were anyone else, they would have felt uncomfortable and felt inferior, and terrified under such nitpicking. This was the common mentality of people. When they saw people of a higher social class, their elegant etiquette, luxurious jewelry, and expensive clothes, they could not help but feel inferior. Emma wanted to use this method to humiliate Olivia and make her feel inferior. She also wanted Ethan to see the difference between the two of them. After picking on the dining etiquette, Emma began to talk about wine again. She spoke tirelessly about the history, taste, and distinguishing of the wine as if she were familiar with it. Those bottles of wine that cost thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars were just ordinary wine that could barely be drunk in her mouth. Her posture was very generous. After she finished speaking, she did not forget to ask Olivia, “What kind of wine do you like to drink, Olivia?” During Emma’s speaking, Olivia had already drunk a bowl of soup and finished a piece of steak. She was completely full.
Chapter 60 +5 vouchers Previously, at the Resort Hotel, Daniel’s plan did not succeed. After knowing that Olivia had left early, his face darkened with anger for a day. The secretary and assistant were so frightened that they trembled and did not dare to speak loudly. After sulking for the entire day, Daniel returned home at night and went straight into Andrew’s room. Andrew was sitting on the ground playing Lego. When he saw Daniel coming in, he waved his little hands happily. “Daddy, come play with me.” Looking at happy Andrew, Daniel suddenly felt a surge of sadness. It was the sadness of a man who had no wife and was raising a child alone. He worked hard to take care of Andrew. But his mother was leisurely. She would go overseas one moment and enjoy the hot spring the next. She did not care about them at all. This son was useless! Daniel could not help but vent his anger. Andrew did not know how to help at all. He sat in front of Andrew and played Lego with him for a while. About five minutes later, he ran out of patience and reminded Andrew, “Didn’t I teach you to be grateful?” Andrew had always been serious about Daniel’s words. Upon hearing this, he thought about it seriously for a moment before shaking his head. “No, you didn’t…” Daniel was speechless. His damned memory was just like his mother’s. It was very good. A child who was only a few years old had such a good memory and remembered everything clearly. “Didn’t I teach you?” Daniel changed his tone. “Then I’ll teach you now.” “Okay.” Andrew sat down obediently. He was trying his best to be a well–behaved child who studied hard. Daniel briefly explained the meaning of gratitude, which was to thank others for their help. 175 13:03 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers After saying that, he gave an example. “Previously at the Resort Hotel, that beautiful sister, Olivia, took care of you and coaxed you to sleep. Shouldn’t you thank her?” Andrew was smart and quick–witted. He immediately nodded. “I understand. This is called gratitude, but…” He was a little conflicted. “What’s wrong?” Daniel asked. Andrew voiced out his dilemma. “I want to be grateful and thank Olivia. However, she is an adult now. I can’t coax her to sleep as she did to me…” At this point, Andrew was a little unhappy. He felt that he was useless. “You don’t have to coax her to sleep to thank her,” Daniel said patiently. “You can call her to thank her. You can also give her a gift and treat her to dinner.” The more Andrew listened, the brighter his eyes became. He sat up was about to run out. and “Where are you going?” Daniel frowned and grabbed the back of Andrew’s collar. Andrew stretched out his fair wrist. “Get my smartwatch and call Olivia!” His smartwatch was taken off by Zoe and placed on the coffee table in the living room. “No need.” Daniel took out his phone. “Use mine.” Andrew took Daniel’s phone with both hands and watched as he skillfully found a number to make a call. “Why do you have Olivia’s number?” Andrew asked as he stared at the name stored in the address book. He already knew some words. But he couldn’t tell the word on Daniel’s phone. Andrew could speak English, but he did not know how to write. He only knew some simple words.
Chapter 41 Emma sat quietly on the sofa. Her expression was calm and even carried just the right amount of worry. She was not worried about whether this was true or not, because there were some things that could not be verified. If Olivia was Ryan’s mistress, it would be the best outcome. It didn’t matter if she wasn’t. The Taylor family could not possibly run to Ryan and ask him if Olivia was his mistress. As long as Olivia sat in Ryan’s car, this was enough. Even if Olivia denied it, the detectives couldn’t find any concrete evidence. It was useless. Because she could not prove that she had nothing to do with Ryan. She was already sitting in Ryan’s car. Did she have the cheek to say that she had nothing to do with him? Regardless of the relationship, as long as Olivia had such a stain, the Taylor family would not let her marry into the Turner family. After all, a marriage alliance was for the sake of the future development of the company, not for the sake of making enemies. Olivia didn’t dare to ignore her grandfather’s call. Emma could guess her attitude. It was either denial or tacit agreement. No matter what, Olivia had to come back and explain this matter in person. At the thought of this, Emma could not control the excitement in her heart. There was finally going to be a good show to watch. However, she had thought of all the possibilities, but she did not expect such an outcome. The person who answered the phone was not Olivia, but Susan. “Is that Liam?” Susan was very excited. “Olivia is in the laboratory. She can’t come out now. I’ll get her to call you later. What’s the matter?” 1/4 12:16 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers Calling back later? It was just a lousy laboratory. Olivia really treated it as her career. Samuel frowned and said impatiently, “Dad, ask her to call Olivia directly.” Liam ignored Samuel and started chatting with Susan. “Are you Olivia’s assistant?” “Yes, I’m Olivia’s life assistant. My name is Susan,” Susan introduced herself enthusiastically. “Oh.” Liam smiled. “Previously, my family wanted to hire a life assistant for Olivia. I didn’t expect her to hire one herself.” Upon hearing this, Susan felt a little embarrassed. She scratched her head and said, “I wasn’t chosen by Olivia. I was originally Charm’s employee. Mr. Book chose me.” In fact, Susan was not the best. She was young and about Olivia’s age, so Ryan thought that they might have something in common, so he let her be Olivia’s life assistant. She actually mentioned Mr. Book so easily. Liam’s phone was not on speaker, but he was old and had poor hearing, so the volume of the call was very loud. The living room was extremely quiet, so everyone could hear it clearly. Samuel started to frown. Amelia was also nervous. It seemed that Ryan was very concerned about Olivia. Could it be that Olivia was not a mistress but the two of them were in a serious relationship?
Chapter 31 The door to the upstairs study was open, Olivia approached the door and leaned in to listen for a moment, and when she heard no sound, she knocked a few times. “Mr. Sullivan, do you need help?” The silence persisted, unbroken. A knot of worry formed in Olivia’s chest, the fear that he might have lost consciousness gnawing at her. Without a second thought, driven by a mix of concern and urgency, she decisively pushed the door open. The study room unfurled before her, grand in its expanse. Tall bookshelves laden with volumes of knowledge lined the walls, their natural wood grain gleaming softly under the ambient light. Directly across from her, to the right, a majestic desk held its ground. Its polished surface was home to a sleek computer and an organized stack of important–looking documents. At her initial glance, the room seemed devoid of human presence. But as Olivia’s eyes adjusted and scanned the room more meticulously, a subtle detail caught her attention. He was there but almost camouflaged. Nestled by the bay window, his silhouette was masked by the heavy, dark curtains, making him appear as if he was a part of the drapery, a shadow blending into the night. Olivia walked over. An overturned solid wood chair lay askew on the floor, hinting at a recent disturbance. Daniel Sullivan was seated gracefully by the bay window, one leg casually crossed over the other, exuding an air of nonchalance despite the evident chaos. From Olivia’s vantage point, she could discern the telltale hues of blue and purple marring his toes. The implication was clear: the chair must have fallen on his foot, causing the bruise. “Are you okay?” Olivia bent down, asking with concern. It seemed as though Dániel was lost in his own world, unaware of her presence. When he finally noticed her, his eyes showed a momentary look of bewilderment. He stared blankly at her for a few heartbeats as if trying to piece together the situation before recognition slowly dawned on his face. “I’m sorry, the noise must have startled you,” he said. 175 15.20 Billionaire’s Missing Darling His tone was polite, starkly contrasting to his previous sarcastic demeanor, as if he were a different person. +5 vouchers Olivia’s nature was to be assertive with the strong and gentle with the weak. Seeing Daniel, clearly injured, still concerned about whether she was startled, her fondness for him grew. “It’s fine. How’s your injury? Is it serious? Do you need to go to the hospital?” she asked. Daniel shook his head. “No need. A bit of ointment will do. Thank you, Ms. Taylor.” “You’re too kind. I didn’t really help much,” she replied. Daniel lowered his gaze, the corner of his mouth twitching slightly, an apologetic look in his eyes. “Actually, I owe you an apology, Ms. Taylor.” Olivia looked up, a hint of confusion in her eyes, which sparkled beautifully. Her innocent appearance made one wish to pull her close and plant a fervent kiss. Daniel turned his head with effort, using all his strength to maintain composure. “It’s about the other day.” Olivia understood. He apologized for his odd behavior a few days ago. Daniel explained. “Many women have tried to get close to me through Andrew. Andrew is my son, and I value him greatly. So, I’ve been cautious. I’m sorry.” Olivia remained silent. While his explanation was understandable, treating every woman as if she was trying to latch onto him wasn’t fair. Daniel’s gaze was calm as he glanced at Olivia. Seeing her lack of response, he quickly shifted his tone and gave an example. “Last year, a lady got along well with Andrew. He really liked her, always calling her ‘sister‘ and frequently contacting her.” That lady also liked Andrew, giving him many gifts. Andrew mentioned to me a few times, hoping that ‘sister‘ could become his new mother.” Hearing the words “new mother,” Olivia instinctively furrowed her brows, feeling a sudden discomfort… This unease came suddenly and inexplicably. Daniel continued, his voice captivating, speaking with deep emotion, “I mostly thought this lady wanted to get close to me through Andrew, to 2/5 15:20 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers marry into the Sullivan family. But who would have thought…” He paused, and Olivia felt a sudden tightness in her chest, a bad premonition forming.
Chapter 21 Because of Daniel, Olivia wasted so much time and only returned to the Taylor family after 8 PM. It was long past dinner time. Therefore, she went to the kitchen for a quick bite before returning to her room to rest. The laboratory had been rushing her many times recently, so she decided to go back there tomorrow. After returning to her room and showering, she sat on the edge of the bed with a towel and rubbed her hair. Then, she could hear three faint knocks on the door. “Olivia, are you still awake? It’s me.” It was Amelia’s voice, so Olivia casually slung her tower over her shoulder and walked to the door in her slippers. Amelia was standing at the door in simple home clothes. She no longer had that noble and overbearing aura previously, but instead, there was more of a gentle and warm feeling to her. “You are still awake.” Amelia looked at Olivia and spoke gently. Olivia stepped aside and let her in. Amelia walked over to the couch and sat down before placing a car key on the table. Olivia glanced at it and realized the key belonged to a Ferrari. “I prepared this gift for you.” Amelia looked warm and soft. “I was going to give it to you yesterday, but something came up, and it was delayed. Also, you were not at home at all today.” It was a gift from Olivia’s mother! Looking at the car key on the table, Olivia could feel her heart softening uncontrollably. She thought about what William told her, saying that her mother once loved her unreservedly. However, she got lost and missed out on 18 years with her. Not only that, but her mother also got sick, which resulted in an awkward situation between the two of them right now. The atmosphere inside the room was extremely quiet, but there was also a sense of warmth amidst the silence. 1:5 12:39 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers “Thank you…” Olivia wanted to call her “mom,” but for some reason, the word just could not leave her mouth. She lowered her eyes in frustration and was a little angry with herself. Meanwhile, Amelia kept on looking at her nervously. Seeing Olivia lowering her head, she thought she did not like her gift, which immediately made her anxious. Just as Amelia was about to say something to ease the situation, she saw water dripping from the wet strands of Olivia’s hair. “This child can’t even wipe her hair clean,” she thought. With a mother’s heart, Amelia stood and picked up the towel over Olivia’s shoulder before carefully wiping her hair with it. Olivia was stunned by her sudden actions, causing her to freeze completely. “Sit down,” Amelia said softly. Olivia sat down on the couch in obedience as Amelia stood behind her to wipe her hair slowly. Olivia never had someone wipe her hair before as she only felt a tingling sensation on her head. At this moment, she suddenly wanted to travel to the past and be a child again just so she could unscrupulously jump into her mother’s arms and be pampered by her. There would not be eighteen years of unfamiliarity between them in this case. It felt as though her heart was in a pile of warm water, giving her a soft yet bitter feel. She could not help but feel that she had gone too far with her previous actions caused by her bad temperament. Whenever there was a conflict between a mother and her daughter, someone must give in first, and why couldn’t she be the one to do so? Olivia was the daughter, after all. She always had to be filial to her mother. After quietly practicing calling her mother inside her heart, Olivia clenched her fists and gathered all her courage as she tried to say the word she had been saying in her dreams for over a decade. However, before she could say the word, Amelia spoke. “Olivia, you really have nice hair.” Amelia touched Olivia’s soft hair. Olivia had observed Amelia’s hair before and realized she had good hair 12:40 Billionaire’s Missing Darling +5 vouchers too. The two of them had similar hair, which was both black and silky. “It’s just like yours.” After saying these words, Olivia immediately lowered her eyes as her heart began to turn anxious until Amelia said, “Of course it is. You are my daughter. You are definitely like me.” Listening to her, Olivia felt a burden lifted from her heart. The corners of her lips raised slightly as she revealed a joyful look with her beautiful eyes. “By the way, Olivia, do you have a boyfriend?” Amelia asked as if by accident.
