Chapter 23 The Wife Behaves Strangely Around Us

  • “Anything else?” Nicole sounded cold, clearly wanting to drive her away. Norah felt embarrassed and could only quickly get down to business. “I know that you and Austin have a conflict. I was just worried that our family would get involved, so I said something that might have offended you. Please don’t mind. You may hit me if you are angry.” Norah said it with an innocent look, as if Nicole would bully her. Nicole sneered as she despised someone who liked to play the victim, like Norah. “Since you know you shouldn’t have said something that shouldn’t be said, you should have corrected yourself instead of coming to me to pretend to apologize.” With that, Nicole slammed the door shut. Norah felt insulted, as if she had been slapped, her face feeling a burning sensation. D*mn it.. How dare Nicole disparage her? Did Nicole really think she had the right to reprimand her because she came to apologize? “Let’s wait and see, Nicole.” She stomped her feet angrily before taking her things and going away. Nicole had locked the door and now turned on the computer.
  • After entering the dark web, she decided to start taking a job today. A client wanted her to hack into a network company’s system and find loopholes in their accounts. This was the most common and simplest type of hacking job she had always been doing. She had done such hacking jobs for years, from accessing enterprise data centers to exploiting the Federal Intelligence Agency’s system. But she had her principles and would do nothing illegal. Three hours flew by. At midnight, she found a vulnerability and implanted a monitoring code into the target system to monitor the target’s accounts. She then turned off the computer to prepare for sleep. She suddenly received an anonymous text message on her phone. [Carl is alive.] Nicole’s heart skipped a beat at seeing the name. She calmed herself down and replied, [Where is he?] The anonymous sender replied, [Beetle Town, Lanningbourg]. [Great! [I will go see him.] After the last mission, she thought her partner was dead, not expecting that he was still alive. This made Nicole, who had always been calm, almost lose control of her emotions.
  • [Not now. Someone is watching. We will take care of him. [Don't go abroad so your whereabouts won’t get exposed.] Nicole suppressed her emotions after getting the reply. She would have to wait for a long time before she could meet Carl. But she was still too excited and could not sleep all night after knowing the news. She felt a little tired, but this was common for her. So, she still went for a morning run like usual. After breakfast, she came to Royal Creek Institute in the Riddle family car. Her frosty look could not hide her beauty. It attracted a lot of attention. A boy could not help but take out his mobile phone and take a few candid photos of her. Nicole looked back at the boy coldly, as if she had eyes on her back. The boy was intimidated by her gaze and deleted the photos. Now the rest of the people became more behaved, and Nicole hurried to Class B. Bradley had arrived. His grades were mediocre, but he was very hardworking, sitting on the side reading a book. When he saw Nicole, he asked her to sit down. “Yesterday, Ms. Emerson came spot-checking the evening self-study class, and only you were not in the class. She will definitely get mad at you today. You have got to be careful.” Nicole couldn’t care less about that.
