Connor’s eyes lit up when he heard the word ‘mommy’.
Gripping the seatbelt with his tiny hands, he mumbled, “Mommy, Mommy.”
Now that things had come to this point, Ethan no longer wanted to hide the truth about Olivia’s child
He wondered if she would be glad to know that the child hadn’t died and that the child had been alive
Perhaps she wouldn’t hate him that much then.
While Ethan was driving, his phone rang.
He answered the call. Brent’s stern voice sounded over his Bluetooth earphones. “Bad news, Mr. Miller.”
“What is it?”
“We fixed the hacked surveillance cameras. Master Connor’s fall wasn’t an accident.
“Someone pushed him. If Master Connor wasn’t agile enough to stop rolling, he might have gotten a
Ethan felt his heart skip a beat. Marina was transferred to a private hospital.
The hospital had built a huge spiral staircase for aesthetic purposes.
If Connor rolled from the top of the staircase to the bottom, the results would be unthinkable.
“The doctors and nurses happened to be making the rounds back then.
“When they saw Master Connor falling, they quickly helped him up. The culprit took the chance to
escape as well.
“If the doctors weren’t there, that culprit might have done even more harm to Master Connor.”
Ethan knew that things weren’t as simple as they seemed. But when he heard it for real, he still felt
“Did you find out who they are? Are they related to Toxic Hive?”
“The culprit had a strong and huge build. He doesn’t seem to be from Toxic Hive.
“Instead, he looks more like someone who underwent special training in the community.”
Ethan stepped on the brakes. Connor was playing around in the back seat, and his head wobbled with. the inertia. “Daddy?”
Reaching out, Ethan caressed his head and coaxed him gently. “It’s okay.”
Brent continued, “I’ve already sent you the surveillance footage.
“To prevent any other accidents, I assigned some more bodyguards to protect you. They’ll catch up to
your car soon.”
Ethan ended the call. Then, he played the video.
The man on the screen was wearing a large cap, which was lowered on purpose.
Only his mouth was exposed, but even that was covered by a fake beard.
He was standing upright, and he had a strong and muscular body.
When he reached out to push Connor, the strong muscles on his arm were outlined against his clothes.
Toxic Hive members were skilled in medicine, so most of them had slender builds.
Ethan could guess who he was from his posture, figure, and aura.
He was either retired from the special forces or a professional assassin and was not part of the Toxic Hive.
Ethan’s expression turned dark. His fingers had just touched a cigarette when he heard the child in the back seat mumbling.
He moved the cigarette box away.
He suspected that his identity was exposed.
If that was the reason, then anyone close to him would be in danger.
“Mommy, Mommy.” Connor still didn’t know what had happened. There was a clear gleam in his eyes, and he didn’t sense any danger.
Ethan smiled in exasperation. “Sorry, kid. I have to break my promise again.”
No matter who the culprit was, it was obvious that they were targeting Connor. Ethan didn’t dare to
His utmost priority right now was to send Connor somewhere safe.
People like him had too much blood on their hands and had seen many cruel things.
If it truly were those people, their tactics would be crueler than the last.
In the past, after his subordinates fell into their hands, they were dismembered and sent back to him.
Those people might do even worse to a little child like Connor.
He didn’t want to experience that pain again.
Ethan gently patted Connor’s smooth face. “Sorry, Connor. We won’t be able to see Mommy tonight.”
