“Yeap. I’ve loved it since I was a child. When I traveled to Country F last time, I came across a really beautiful town there. All the streets in that town were planted with red roses on both sides. Oh, it was simply enchanting. Howl hope we can do the same in Atlantis,” Xyla Quest replied in a low murmur.
“Hmm…” Stanley Batton said, “Maybe your dream will come true one day.”
Xyla did not respond anymore. She snuggled in the man’s arms and quietly fell asleep.
The next morning, the lovebirds were both awakened by the noises of a vibrating phone.
Xyla reached for her phone on the bedside table in a daze. Noticing that it was not her phone vibrating, she dropped her phone and wrapped the blanket around herself, going back to sleep.
On the other hand, Stanley immediately grabbed his phone and stalked out to the balcony, lowering his voice as he answered the call. “Any updates, Zack?”
“I found out that Bailey Ronson had been calling a random number quite frequently before she tracked down Henry. After careful investigation, we discovered that the number belongs to a hacker called Dex Reagan. Besides, there were some call records between this hacker and Emily Quest…” Zack Cassidy continued.
“A few days before Bailey contacted Dex Reagan, this guy already had a couple of calls with Emily. Most importantly, I found out that he had invaded our country’s registry database several times to trace your information…” Zack added, “Some of us have gone to find Dex now.”
Upon hearing the news, Stanley’s face darkened instantaneously.
“Fifth Master, I’m afraid that the whole incident has turned out as you predicted. It’s more or less related to Emily,” Zack explained in earnest.
“Got it…” Stanley directly hung up his phone.
At that moment, Xyla was awakened. She lazily stretched her back before sitting up and tidying up her hair. She glanced at the man on the balcony and asked curiously, “Who called you?”
The man strode across the room and sat down beside her. “The matter about Bailey uncovering me seems to be related to Emily.”
His statement hardly caused a ripple of surprise within Xyla. She had long suspected that Emily was involved in the case. Afterward, Stanley told Xyla everything that Zack had reported to him earlier.
After listening to his explanation, Xyla pondered for a few seconds before mumbling, “So… Emily was trying to make use of Bailey to tackle me.”
“If they manage to find Dex Reagan, remind Zack to interrogate him properly. Let’s not jump to the conclusion for now…” Xyla said again.
Even if she wanted a showdown, she must have conclusive evidence in hand.
“No worries. He knows what to do,” Stanley soothed.
With that out of the way, Xyla did not say another word. She glimpsed at the clock and said, “Let’s wash up and get some breakfast first…”
“What do you want to eat?”
Then, Xyla headed to the bathroom. Stanley followed closely behind.
After the two of them washed up, Stanley went straight to the kitchen downstairs to make breakfast for his beloved. Meanwhile, Xyla was busy putting on her makeup in front of the gold-and-diamond-encrusted dressing table.
Due to her tight schedule this morning, she could only manage a simple makeup before dashing to the dressing room, quickly picking up a white blouse and a baby blue long suit.
The suit’s waist-skimming design showed off her slender waist to the fullest. Furthermore, her long legs stood out against the short top.
With the white Chanel bag over her shoulder, she quickly went downstairs to have breakfast with Stanley and left the house in no time.
When her red Maserati arrived at the entrance of Quest Property Group, her phone vibrated.
Noticing it was her father’s call, Xyla answered without hesitation. She then grabbed her bag, got out of the car, and darted into the building while talking on the phone.
Her pace was fast. She came as a stunning great businesswoman with her white high heels clicking against the glossy tiles.
