Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 2235

Chapter 2235 Provocation

Her words were obviously provocative. Francesca furrowed her brows and was about to say something when the first lady spoke up to smooth things over. “Okay, that’s enough. Our main priority is to find Danrique.”

Hazel responded, “I hope we could find him as soon as possible, too. My subordinates and I have already informed Gordon about the situation. He has gotten all the information he needs and is investigating the situation now.”

The first lady sighed sorrowfully. “That’s good to know. I hope Danrique will be able to return safely.”

At that moment, Gerard said sarcastically, “We all hope for that. With the absence of Danrique, some urgent projects cannot be initiated, while some important projects have to be postponed as they require approvals. As a result, the company has suffered significant losses. If this continues, the problem will only worsen.”

“The president has already sent people over. At the same time, we contacted the government there. We will bring Danrique back safely.” The first lady changed the subject.

“It’s great that we have the president’s help. Danrique would surely return soon,” Gerard quickly replied.

The first lady nodded. “Yes. Let’s eat first. We can talk while we eat.”

Hazel said feebly, “Mrs. President, I’m not feeling well, so I can’t stay outside for long. I won’t be able to eat dinner with you.”

Gerard chimed in hastily, “That’s right. Hazel is badly injured and was carried back home on a hospital bed in the morning. We wouldn’t even be here if you didn’t summon us.”

“Come to think of it, Francesca is a doctor. Why don’t you let her have a look at Hazel’s injuries?” the first lady suggested enthusiastically.

“There’s no need for that. I can’t trouble the almighty Dr. Felch with my minor injuries!” Hazel gazed at Francesca coldly.

While Francesca was fuming, the first lady stepped in to defuse the situation yet again. “Francesca has exceptional medical skills. Previously, when Avery had a relapse, the other doctors could not do anything to save her. Francesca was the one who saved Avery.”

“Is Avery okay?” Hazel asked concerned.

“Her situation has already stabilized.”

In the midst of their conversation, the first lady’s phone suddenly rang. She took a look at the caller ID and said hastily, “The president is calling. I need to take this. You guys can sit here and wait for me to return.”

“All right. Go ahead.” Gerard and Hazel nodded in response.

After the first lady left to take the call, Gerard, Hazel, Francesca, and a few maids were the only ones left in the private room.

Gerard said with a cynical tone, “Don’t think of yourself as the lady of the Lindberg family simply because you’re dating Danrique. You need to understand that you guys are still not married, so you’re not part of the family yet.”

“Daddy—” Hazel furrowed her brows and tried to stop him.

“Hazel, you’re too much of a pushover,” said Gerard to Hazel before glowering at Francesca with hatred. “I don’t understand what Danrique sees in you. You don’t have any good qualities, yet you act high and mighty. Let me tell you. You have to give up the seal sooner or later. With Danrique absent, the other directors would still need to ensure that the company continues running. It’s not something an outsider like you can have a say in.”

Francesca bellowed in annoyance, “Are you done? How dare you make yourself sound so righteous when you guys are attempting to usurp Danrique’s authority while he’s away? How hypocritical!”

“You—”

Francesca interrupted him angrily, “What? Don’t think I’m a pushover! With me here, no one will be able to take anything from the Lindberg family.”

Livid, Gerard gritted his teeth. “How dare you! Who do you think you are? Do you really think you’re a big shot? Aren’t you just one of Danrique’s women? You’re going to get kicked out soon…”

“Daddy…”

“The audacity!”

Enraged, Francesca picked up an ashtray and threw it in his direction.

Gerard hastily ducked to avoid it, and it landed on Hazel instead. The woman yelped in pain as the color drained from her face.
