This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr Chapter 1234

Chapter 1234 Your Subordinate

The man in black looked at Sonia, seemingly asking for the woman’s permission. After Sonia nodded lightly at him, he followed the secretaries and assistants into the vast office, then began gathering Daphne’s things.

Because of the increased speed from working together, within a few minutes, Daphne’s things were all gathered and placed into two large cardboard boxes.

The man in black bent over and carried the two boxes in his arms. After informing Sonia, he walked straight toward the elevator.

Sonia and Lina stood outside the large office, watching him leave. Lina sighed. “I know that Daphne resigned in pursuit of a better future; it’s a good thing, but when I saw her leave, I still felt sad inside.”

With that, she turned to look at Sonia. She thought that Sonia would feel the same, but unexpectedly, she saw Sonia frowning while looking in the direction the man left.

“What’s wrong, President Reed?” Lina glanced in the direction the man in black went, then back at Sonia, hastily asking, “Is something off about that man?”

If not, Sonia wouldn’t have such an expression. Sonia shook her head, then nodded. “No, it’s just that I feel like I’ve seen this man somewhere before.”

She had originally decided to ignore that notion. However, when she watched the man in black leaving with the boxes, a sense of familiarity surged in her mind once again.

The sense of familiarity invaded her twice, so she didn’t think it was just an illusion.

Therefore, she had seen this man before but couldn’t remember where.

“You’ve seen him before?” Lina was stunned. “That’s impossible, though. Unless you’ve been to her house, how could you have met Daphne’s neighbor before?”

Sonia shook her head. “That is exactly what’s bothering me. I haven’t been there, but I feel like I’ve seen this man before. I wouldn’t be acting like this otherwise.”

“That’s weird.” Lina rubbed her chin. “Logically speaking, you wouldn’t have met him before if you’d never been to Daphne’s house. Could it be that you’ve seen him somewhere else?”

“I think so too. Perhaps you’ve seen him somewhere before,” answered Sonia while rubbing her temples.

Lina said, “But if that man can easily carry two large filled boxes, he must be undeniably strong. He also has an uncommon aura about him, and I don’t think he looks like a normal guy. He looks more like a soldier or a bodyguard.”

“Bodyguard?” A flash of inspiration occurred to Sonia as she instantly thought of something. She widened her eyes.

When Lina noticed this, she promptly asked, “President Reed, do you remember now?”

Sonia nodded, her expression a little serious. “When you mentioned the word ‘bodyguard’, I remember now that I’ve seen this man before. It was at Charles’ company. He is indeed a bodyguard; one of Charles’ bodyguards, to be exact. However, Charles doesn’t like having his bodyguards with him, so they are usually stationed in the security department of Lane Corporation. I must have seen him at Lane Corporation before.”

“I can’t believe he’s President Lane’s bodyguard,” Lina exclaimed in surprise. “Are you sure, President Reed?”

“Absolutely.” Sonia nodded earnestly.

A shocked Lina stared in the direction the man in black had disappeared, then gulped. “Didn’t he say that he’s Daphne’s neighbor? Why is he President Lane’s bodyguard now? Is he lying?”

She immediately looked at Sonia.

Sonia pursed her red lips as she remained silent, for she couldn’t understand it either.

If he were Charles’ bodyguard, why would he tell them that he was Daphne’s neighbor?

Could it be that this man was indeed Daphne’s neighbor, and he lived near Daphne’s house while coincidentally working as Charles’ bodyguard as well?

Even though it was possible, it wasn’t likely.

Of course, there could be another reason, and it was just as Lina had guessed; this man had lied. He wasn’t Daphne’s neighbor; he was just Charles’ bodyguard who had come to help gather Daphne’s things under Charles’ orders.

If not, how could Daphne possibly order Charles’ bodyguards around?

After all, Charles hated Daphne. Putting aside the possibility of him lending his bodyguard to Daphne, the two were no longer involved, so Daphne wouldn’t have the guts to ask Charles for someone to help her collect her stuff.

What exactly was going on here? Sonia could only give Charles or Daphne a call to get an answer.

Also, for some reason, she had a feeling that there must be a secret within there somewhere.

“President Reed?” Noticing that Sonia was in a daze, Lina couldn’t help but wave as she called out.

Sonia’s eyes twinkled as she recovered her senses, then smiled at Lina. “It’s nothing. I’ll give Charles a call and ask him why his bodyguard was moving Daphne’s stuff for her. I wonder if he knows what’s going on.”

Lina nodded.

Sonia turned and went back to her office. After sitting down, she instantly took out her phone and dialed Charles’ number.

Charles answered the call immediately. His casual voice sounded right away as he asked, “Hey, why the sudden phone call? Do you miss me or something? Hehe, did you suddenly realize that I’m way better, so you want to dump Toby and come back to me?”

Of course, Sonia knew he was kidding and that he had no intention of probing her on purpose. After all, he knew well that she would never break up with Toby.

At least, not for now.

He had joked about those things to tease her a little.

Sonia rolled her eyes. “Enough, Charles. Stop the nonsense and get serious. I have something to talk to you about.”

“Fine, I’ll stop fooling around. What is it?” On the other end of the line, Charles was also sitting in his own office. He was leaning lazily in his office chair, and his feet were propped on his office desk.

As soon as he heard that Sonia had serious business to talk about, he immediately adjusted his slack posture and hastily lowered his feet, proceeding to sit upright.

“It’s not something too important, but it’s like an itch I can’t scratch if I don’t get to the bottom of it.” Sonia rubbed between her eyebrows as she spoke in a slightly laden tone.

When Charles heard that, he was instantly worried. “What exactly is it, Sonny? Tell me.”

Seeing that the problem at hand could turn into a bother if she didn’t get to the bottom of it, he guessed that it couldn’t have been a minor problem like she claimed it was.

“Let me ask you this, Charles. Did you send a bodyguard to my place to gather Daphne’s things?” When Sonia posed the question, she pursed her red lips slightly.

On the other end of the line, Charles froze completely.

After waiting for a few seconds in vain for his reply, Sonia already had an answer. “As expected, it’s your doing. That man was lying about being Daphne’s neighbor. He was just following your orders, pretending to be Daphne’s neighbor so that he could come here and get her stuff. In the likely event that we didn’t believe him, you even told Daphne’s mother about it. Charles, what a thoughtful man you are.”

If she hadn’t realized that the man was his bodyguard, she wouldn’t have known that he would go through so much plotting just to move some stuff.

Charles parted his lips a little and finally found his voice after a while. “Since you know that already, I won’t deceive you any longer. I did send the man there, and I did inform Daphne and her mother about it. I did it so that—”

“So that I won’t find out that you’re the one who sent him. That’s why you worked with Daphne and her mother to put on a show so that I would think that he’s Daphne’s neighbor instead of your subordinate, right?” Sonia’s expression was dark as she interrupted him.

Charles lowered his head guiltily. “Yes…”
