Three years of marriage with Scott passed smoothly, and after the divorce, she hoped for the same. Alas, it seemed such a wish would not come true. She did not want a repeat of what happened tonight in the hospital room, so it was better if she did not interact with Scott, Olivia, or Sasha.
“Okay.” Charles looked at her calm face, tightened his grip on the handles, and wheeled her into the hospital room.
Scott watched as the person with a withdrawn gaze and a calm expression disappeared from his sight. For the first time, he felt a sense of restlessness in his heart.
The night was quiet, especially after 10 p.m., and the hospital was no longer bustling with people. Silence gradually settled in the building.
Scott stood under a street lamp outside the hospital, his cigarette tucked between his fingers.. The halo of light enveloped him, and the end of his cigarette still glowed.
“Ms. Sasha left the hospital at eight–forty. At eight–fifty, Mr. Charles and Mr. Goodwin left the hospital. Twelve minutes later, Mrs. Goodwin left the ward and exited the hospital.
“Then, at nine–twenty, Ms. Sasha and Ms. Olivia went to Miss Naomi’s ward. You appeared at nine–twenty–five.”
The timeline echoed clearly in his ears. Scott stared into the night, his eyes deep and indifferent. He took a drag of his cigarette, and smoke rose.
His eyes narrowed slightly, and a very low hum escaped his throat.
Everything seemed to have quieted at this moment.
Ray finished speaking and remained silent, waiting for Scott’s instructions. However, Scott’s end remained silent despite the call remaining connected. This puzzled Ray.
It seemed that something was troubling Mr. Lawson. Having been by his side for many years, this was perhaps the first time he sensed an unusual mood from him. Nevertheless, he did not ask and continued to wait.
“Draft the contract with Carver Corporation.” A deep voice resonated, causing Ray to pause before responding.
This time, the call ended.
Ray lowered his phone.
Carver Corporation had achieved significant success in real estate, especially in the past two decades, which were particularly glorious.
However, with the saturation of the real estate industry in recent years, further upward growth for Carver Corporation seemed impossible. The situation indicated a downward trend, and in the last two years, Carver Corporation attempted unsuccessful transformations into other projects.
At this point, Carver Corporation had set its sights on the tourism industry, which seemed like a viable option. Throughout their history, whenever someone sought cooperation with them, Mr. Lawson always approached it as a formal affair. There would be data–examining, evaluating assessments, scrutinizing the other party’s circumstances, and comparing everything before ultimately selecting a partner.
This time, when Carver Corporation expressed interest in collaboration, following Mr. Lawson’s usual style, it should have entailed a series of procedures. When Ray informed Mr. Lawson of this matter earlier in the morning, Mr. Lawson also requested various data from Carver Corporation without giving a direct conclusion.
This time, in less than a day, Mr. Lawson instructed him to draft the contract for cooperation with Carver Corporation. This took Ray by surprise. Nonetheless, considering the longstanding relationship between the Carvers and the Lawsons, he did not find it entirely unexpected.
The Carvers were different from others, having a nearly century–old friendship with the Lawsons, making their connection unique.
Scott extinguished his cigarette, and the lingering smoke dissipated into the night. The haze in the night was also gone. He gazed at the descending darkness, his eyes deep and
undisturbed as if nothing out of the ordinary had occurred tonight. It was as if everything was normal, just like any other night.
Jasper hurriedly ran out. Seeing the imposing figure standing under the streetlight, he approached with quick strides.
