While still reeling from his shock, he could hear the soft voices calling hinn “daddy“.
That little girl was his daughter. Slowly, the rage and frustration in Duke‘s chest faded. He had truly lost control just now and had nearly killed Dew. He wanted to teach Dew a lesson, but there were many more other ways for him to do so. Why should he get his hands dirty for that?
He chuckled coldly and turned around to look at the family portrait hanging in the Daugherty family‘s living room. There were only the three of them–Aaron, Ruby, and Dew-in the family portrait.
Adina would always be the outsider in this family But did Aaron and Ruby know about the incident that happened four years ago? Duke really wanted to rush to the preschool right away and give his long–lost kids a proper hug. But he still held himself back.
If the Daugherty family were not dealt with, he would never feel at ease. He slowly walked out the door, turned to face the servants surrounding the door, and asked coldly, “Where are Aaron and Ruby?” A much braver servant obediently informed him, “The master and madam are still at the company. They haven‘t returned yet.” Duke pulled open the car door and got inside. While seated in the car, he pulled out his phone and noticed two texts from Adina.
He pursed his lips and sent a reply that said, (I‘ll be back to the Winters family‘s mansion shortly.)
He exited the chat with Adina before sending a message to his assistant, and then he drove to Daugherty Corporation. Twilight arrived then, painting the sky red from the setting sun. The autumn evening sky was clear.
It was rush hour, and Daugherty Corporation‘s employees were leaving the office one by one.
Duke entered the building through the main entrance, drawing many people‘s attention.
“God, I‘m not hallucinating, am I? I think that‘s the CEO of Winters Corporation, Duke Winters!”
“Oh my goodness, he really is very attractive. How could such a handsome man exist?!”
“Stop fangirling. Do you guys know why Duke would visit Daughter Corporation at such a late hour?”
“I think he‘s here to talk with Mr. Daugherty about a partnership. If we manage to work with
Winters Corporation, we won‘t have to worry about the company‘s profit over the next few
Duke made his way to the elevator as the employees continued chatting, and went up to the top floor
He had visited Daugherty Corporation a few times before, so he casily found his way to the CEO‘s office.
Before he even knocked on the door, he could hear arguing coming from the inside. “Aaron, you bastard, are you really cheating on me behind my back with the office secretary? What makes this little bitch so great that you would throw away your morals and principles?!”
Then came the sound of things shattering and a woman crying.
He pursed his lips in annoyance and opened the office door with a kick.
“Who‘s that? How rude of you to enter without knocking first! Do you want to lose your job?” Ruby cursed while turning around, but she was absolutely taken aback when she saw Duke standing coldly at the door. “D–Duke, what brings you here? Why didn‘t you tell us before you came?”
As she said that, she turned and glared angrily at the crying secretary by the side. “What are you crying about? Hurry up and get a glass of water!“
