“Thank you, Mr. Jones. I can take care of it myself.” Adina hung up immediately. She drove back to LaStar Technology Corporation. Instead of taking care of work, she logged on to the Dark Net using an offshore account. There were all kinds of people on the Dark Net. Most of them were very capable. She found a few organizations that were involved in both legal and illegal businesses. She spent a fortune to hire them to help search for Duke. There were only a few places where it was possible to make someone vanish from the face of the earth. Whether he was alive or dead, she had to find out Duke’s whereabouts. Adina had a busy afternoon at the office. She was finally ready to go home. She actually felt reluctant to go back to the Winters family’s mansion. Without Duke, without four kids, it was just another building to her. But she still needed to deal with Earl, so she had to go back. Adina dawdled in the office for a while before she drove back to the Winters family’s
A loud slap rang through the living room. Sophia’s eyes went wide. “You witch, how dare you hit me?! I won’t let this go!” She no longer cared about her image and lunged at Adina like a crazed woman. Her hands were outstretched toward Adina’s throat. Adina avoided her coolly, and Sophia missed. She crashed face-first onto the floor. Blood poured down her face. Sophia had never been in such a pathetic state before, and she wanted to tear Adina to shreds. “Sophia, your son has a foul mouth, so that slap was for him!” Adina said while looking down at her. She then bent down and picked Melody up. Her daughter opened her eyes wide, and her long, curled lashes fluttered. It looked like she had no idea what had just happened. Morganna was so furious that her hand trembled. “Adina, you wh*re, how dare you hit my daughter?! As long as I’m one of the Xaviers, don’t you dare to even think about staying here!” “Are you thinking about chasing me out of the house, too?” Madam Xavier walked out of the study room with her cane and stopped in front of Adina like a protector. Morganna suppressed her anger and said in a quivering voice, “That’s not what I meant, Mother. You saw what happened just now. Adina has no respect for her cousin and hit her. She’s too arrogant, and it’ll bring unrest in the family. I only want what’s the best for the family…” “You’re the one who’ll bring unrest to the family!” Richard roared. “If you can’t accept Addy, go back to your family!” Morganna felt ashamed after being rebuked by her mother-in-law and husband in front of others, but she did not dare to say anything else. She picked Sophia up from the floor while feeling indignant and grabbed the wailing Leo, then went upstairs. Even though the incident had come to an end, Adina could not calm down. It was just the first day of her return, and they had already started fighting. There was definitely going to be more trouble in the future. Adina was not afraid of Morganna or Sophia, but Melody was still young, and Adina could not possibly watch over her 24/7. The others would definitely find a time to mock and abuse her, which would worsen her condition. It seemed that staying in the mansion was not the smartest decision. Madam Xavier saw through Adina’s thoughts and said, “Addy, you’ve always been opinionated, and I was never able to change your mind once after you’ve made a decision, but could you do this for me? Please, stay in the house I’ll give you. This way, I’ll be at ease.” Addy hesitated for a while before she nodded. “I intend to hold a birthday party for you so that everyone will know that the most beautiful woman of Sea City is alive.” Madam Xavier patted the back of her hand. “After it, you can move out.” Alden tugged at Adina’s sleeve. “I’ll take good care of Mel, Mommy. Don’t worry.” Sophia had acted really aggressively, so Adina was still worried. But then, it had been years since she had last met her grandmother. It would be wrong to not even stay for a few days. She could move out immediately after the party ended. Since Adina was still worried about Sophia abusing her children, she brought them along when she went to Xavier Corporation the next day.
