Chapter 1456

“I’m fine, but what’s the deal with Fiorella?” Nicole asked Martin directly.

“Fiorella Fisher? What are you talking about?” Martin asked sloppily.

“Don’t play dumb with me. She’s in Jared’s ward. Do you want me to go on? ” Nicole asked, her tone icy.

She was not expecting Martin to withhold such an important piece of information from her.

It was then that Martin suddenly remembered the cloud surveillance camera in the ward. ‘Nicole must’ve seen Fiorella through it’

“So, you already knew about…Fiorella. Well, uh, I couldn’t leave Jared alone in the ward. I have other things that I need to deal with. After much consideration, I think that Fiorella is the best person suited to take care of Jared, and that was why I came up with that decision,” he said with traces of guilt in his voice.

“Where’s Max when you’re busy?“ Nicole asked.

“Max has company matters to deal with too, and with Jared locked in his current state, no one else in the company knows what to do. Max and Claus have been busy with the company’s affairs. They occasionally come over to visit Jared, but they would leave whenever they receive a phone call,” Martin replied, explaining the predicaments that Max and Claus were into Nicole.

Upon hearing Martin’s words, Nicole anger began to dissipate. Indeed, Max and Claus had been working hard ever since Jared fell into a coma.

“Martin, I know that you’ve been worried about this, but to let Fiorella take care of Jared? Don’t you know how Fiorella feels about him?” Nicole said bluntly.

“I know precisely how Fiorella feels about Jared, and that was why I entrusted her with the task of taking care of Jared. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to deal with my own stuff. There isn’t anyone else that’s more suited to look after him right now,” he said.

“This is the reason as to why I didn’t ask you for your opinion. Firstly, you were out of reach, and secondly, I was afraid that you would disagree if you found out,” Martin continued, expressing his concerns freely.

“Martin, am I an unreasonable person to you?” she asked.

“Of course not. It’s just that I didn’t arrange things well,” Martin replied, knowing that Nicole wasn’t angry anymore right after he had heard what she had to say.

“Anyway, when are you coming back?” Martin asked.

“I still have some difficult things to deal with here. I can’t come back for the time being. As for Jared, I’ll leave him in your and…Fiorella’s hands for now,” she replied after some hesitation.

“Don’t worry about Jared. You should take care of yourself over there,” Martin reminded with concern.

“Don’t worry about me, Martin. There is one more thing I need you to keep as a secret for me,” she requested.

“What’s that?” he asked.

“If Jared wakes up, don’t tell him that I’m now abroad. You must not let him come and look for me,” Nicole said in a stern voice.

“That will be difficult. I mean, if everything can be dealt with before he wakes up and he asks me about you, I’ll…Anyway, it won’t take that long for you to come back, right?” Martin hesitated with a hint of embarrassment.

“I’m not sure how long I’ll take,” she blurted out.

“Bottom-line is, if Jared wakes up and I haven’t returned by then, you must never let him know that I’m not in the country. You must keep this as a secret from him!” Nicole urged.

“Alright, I’ll try my best to keep it a secret, but it’ll come a day when he discovers the truth, and I’m not to blame when he does,” Martin said, not wishing to deceive Jared again.

“I hope that you’ll be able to come back soon so that I won’t have to lie to him again,” he said.

“Mr. Wyance, everyone has a few questions they’d like to ask you.” Charles said after coming out of the conference room and walking up to Martin.

“Okay, I’ll be right back.” “Go ahead and take care of things on your end first. Bye,” Nicole said upon hearing everything that was happening on Martin’s end.
