Evan’s glacial tone interrupted Nicole’s thoughts.
She looked up at the man, not understanding a word he had just said.
Threaten him? When have I ever done that?
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, Mr. Seet.”
Evan snorted. “Too afraid to own up?”
Seeing how bewildered Nicole looked, the man scoffed and continued, “Only a woman like you can do something as shallow as hacking into a company’s system. Still, I’m more curious as to where you learned to be a hacker and doctor.”
The doctor part was no surprise to Nicole. However, the hacking...
Did Juan do something?
He did fiddle around with the computer earlier when he was alone. Could he have gotten revenge for me by hacking into Evan’s company website?
Upon realizing this, Nicole immediately eased the situation by admitting it was her doing. “I learned hacking and medicine from my mentors.”
“So you admit it? Do you not fear death from doing such things?”
Evan’s frosty eyes narrowed as an intimidating aura engulfed him.
The moment he said that, Nicole instantly froze.
He’s going to take my life just because of this?
I can’t die yet!
I have to raise my three babies and make sure Kyle gets better.
“Kyle won’t be able to get better if you kill me, Mr. Seet.”
Evan’s face darkened at the mention of Kyle. There was no denying that Nicole’s acupuncture treatments were helping.
The boy now felt much more at ease from just one treatment.
In that case, I’ll keep her alive for now so she can treat Kyle. This is her chance to redeem herself, and I’ll think about the rest later.
“You can’t kill Mommy, Mister! Mommy works so hard to raise us!” Maya said while looking innocent with her puppy eyes.
“We’ll hate you for life if you kill Mommy!”
Meanwhile, Nina looked as angry as a bull.
Evan was instantly filled with wrath as he looked down and saw the two little girls protecting their mother.
It’s hard to raise them? They’ll hate me for life?
How is it my problem if she’s had a tough time raising them? She deserves it!
“I’ll spare your life, for now, Nicole Lane. Be glad that you’re being given a chance at redemption. You’ll continue to treat Kyle, but you must never tell him you’re his mother, or else...”
The rage in Evan’s eyes made Nicole quiver. She immediately placed herself in front of her daughters and responded, “I understand, Mr. Seet. Don’t worry. I won’t tell Kyle anything.”
“You’d better not.”
After Evan said that, he stared at her for a long time.
But just as he turned to leave, the sound of a mug falling to the ground suddenly came from inside the bedroom.
There’s someone else?
Evan stopped in his tracks and turned to Nicole.
The woman’s eyes were filled with anxiety.
It must be the man she ended up marrying. He must be the father of these two girls.
The thought of this made Evan’s gaze darken.
His precious Kyle had gone through so much suffering, but this woman continued to live like the boy never existed.
He was determined to find out who this despicable man was.
After a short pause, Evan began heading toward the bedroom.
“You can’t go in there, Mr. Seet!”
Juan’s inside! Evan would surely recognize the boy.
“Mr. Seet, you can’t-”
The more Nicole resist, the more Evan became frustrated. With that, he pushed her aside angrily. Look at how nervous she is. Is she worried that I’m about to hurt her man?
Evan slammed the door open as he arrived in front of the bedroom.
