He walked over. He suddenly raised his foot, and the tip of his leather shoes came in contant with one of the men‘s necks.
He was so quick and brutal that the man felt immense pressure on his neck. His face turned pale.
“It looks like you won‘t behave If I don‘t put you in your place.”
Duke sneered and pulled his right foot up again,
The man choked on his own breath. The blood vessels in his neck were bulging out, and he looked like he would faint any second.
He could sense Duke‘s murderous aura.
‘If I don‘t do as he says, I could die right here…‘ “Okay, okay!” The men in black immediately surrendered, “Someone from the Osborne family asked us to sneak into this mansion and kidnap the two children!” Adina narrowed her eyes in suspicion. “Someone from the Osborne family? What‘s his name?” The man shook his head. “I don‘t know. He paid us a million dollars and told us to get it done in three days. From his accent, he doesn‘t sound like he‘s from Sea City…‘ Adina was still puzzled when she heard it. ‘Someone from the Osborne family wants to kidnap my two children? ‘It looks like I need to settle this matter quickly…?
Duke already had someone in mind that could be the culprit. He kicked the two men coldly.” Go!”
The two men instantly ran away. “I‘ll take care of the Osborne family,” Duke said as he twitched his finger. “Don‘t worry.” Adina‘s heart skipped a beat. She said hurriedly, “It‘s okay. I will talk to Tyson about this…? “No man wants their own children to be strays. The Osborne family won‘t let this go easily.” Duke said plainly, “The Osborne family is quite powerful. It‘s easy for them to make a move on a fragile woman like you. Just let me take over from here.”
Adina pursed her lips.
‘The Osborne family will stop pestering us if I show them the two children‘s paternity tests.‘
But she could not bring herself to say that.
‘Duke is the same. He wouldn‘t want his own children to be strays too.
‘If Mel and Al‘s identities were to be exposed, I won‘t be able to keep custody of them…‘
“Duke, this matter is between Tyson and me. Let me handle this matter,” Adina said softly.” What‘s more, he‘s their biological father. I don‘t want to make a huge scene out of this…”
Duke stared at her for a few seconds, without uttering a word. He began to walk toward the mansion. She followed him, not knowing what he was up to next. He went upstairs, checked the locks on the doors and windows in each room, the parapet around the mansion, and even called for his personal security to strengthen their patrol He only drove off after everything was done. Adina could not describe how she was feeling at the moment. ‘For the past four years, I have been alone. No matter what happened, I always took the lead and resolved them independently. But earlier on, I was being protected by Duke.
‘Is this how being protected feels like..?” Adina locked the doors and windows and walked into her bedroom. She then took out her phone and called Tyson. She soon heard Tyson‘s frantic voice from the other end of the call. “Good job, Adina. How dare you keep some random man in your house now?!”
‘The men I sent wouldn‘t have failed to get my children back if Adina had not kept that man in her house!
