“What did you find?“ Felix curiously asked when he heard Matthew exciaim as Matthew simply passed the phone to Felix in response.
A map that located the places Franklin had frequented in the past was displayed on the phone screen.
Felix looked at the locations marked, and when he could not find anything that would have warranted such a reaction out of Matthew, he asked, “Mr. Larson, is anything wrong with these locations?”
“Look closer,“ Matthew said in a soft voice. “Do you recognize any place from this that Franklin has frequented only recently?”
Felix then scrutinized the map again, and this time, his eyes went wide as he asked aloud, “Could there be a reason why he has been going to Blossoms in East City recently?”
The Lewis Family lived in the northern town, while East City was situated in a run-down part of Eastcliff. It didn’t make sense for Franklin, a man of great lust for money and sex, to visit East City so often. Furthermore, Blossoms was a flower market. Hence, there was no reason for him to set foot at that place.
The markings on the map, however, would beg to differ. Not only had he been to the place, but he had also been there numerous times.
“Mr. Larson, do you think that something is going on here?” Felix continued after sucking in a deep breath.
In response, Matthew only calmly replied, ”The Lewis Family can‘t possibly do anything to me without the backing of other families.” He took a momentary pause and continued, “So… We can find out what we have to at Blossoms.”
Upon hearing this, Wilson promptly said, “Mr. Larson, I’ll get our men to head there right this instant.”
Matthew nodded as he gave the green light. ”Go undercover. We must not alert them.”
Hearing that, Wilson responded with a nod. Then, Matthew instructed Felix to begin the process of supplying the materials needed for the renovation of the construction company Matthew owned. With the control Felix had over the Lewis Family now, the acquisition of these materials should not pose a problem.
After a while, Matthew was the first to leave the place. Following after, Wilson and Felix, too, soon made their exit. After leaving, Matthew headed straight to the hospital, and the first person he saw there was Crystal, who seemed to have her hands full.
With no intention of making his presence known to her, he swiftly made his way to the ward out front to check on Heidi.
As soon as he stepped into the ward, he was greeted by the sight of Leia, Heidi’s daughter-sitting by the side of the bed. She was holding Helen‘s hand as she affectionately called out ‘Aunty Helen’ continuously.
At the sight of Matthew, Leia immediately stood up. With a face full of smiles, she exclaimed, “Matthew! You’re here!”
As he did not have the best impression of Leia, he chose not to answer her and left right after making sure Heidi was in good condition. His disregard only left her standing there quietly in embarrassment.
Leia only found out about the current situation the Cunningham Family was in after the incident that had happened before. The first thing that she did after learning about the truth was, of course, to kiss up to Helen. This was her way to get close to the Cunningham Family. The only difference now was that even Helen did not seem to want to bother with her. It did not take much for one to realize what kind of despicable person Leia was.
The next morning, Matthew made his way to Cunningham Pharmaceuticals right after checking on Helen.
Sasha was signing a few documents when Matthew strode into the office. At once, her face brightened up when she saw him.
“Give me a second. We can go for lunch after I finish these off!” she excitedly announced.
“Take your time.” The sight of a delighted Sasha, too, put a small smile on Matthew’s face. “I have a surprise waiting for you?”
Sasha started to grow suspicious at those unexpected words, so she asked, “A surprise?“
“Yup. A surprise.” He confirmed with a nod.
“Well, what kind of surprise?” Curiosity was now written all over her face as she asked again.
The smile stayed plastered on his face as he replied, “It is a secret for now.”
Seeing how amused he was by her reaction, she gave a big eye roll at him and grumbled, “Trying to act all mysterious now, huh? It better be a big surprise.”
She kept mumbling in dissatisfaction; it was obvious that her attention was no longer on the documents she was still handling a moment ago. She then hastily signed whatever was left, and when she was done. she sped off in Matthew’s direction before urging him, “I’m done. Can you please tell me what it is now?”
Then, Matthew brought her toward the exit of the office, and with a smile hanging on his lips, he said softly, “You will find out in a while.”
Sasha playfully pinched him in return, but still, she had a blissful expression on her face when she compliantly hugged him by his arm as they left the office.
Still keeping it a secret from Sasha, Matthew had planned to bring her to Lakeside Garden. They were finally returning to the home that was exclusively theirs.
