Chapter 639 Go To War
Christina was well aware that if she wanted to look into Timothy’s situation in such a short time, she needed Nathaniel’s help.
“My father’s personal butler called me and told me that something might have happened to my father,” said Christina gloomily. “My father and Grandma went to see Nigel to discuss business today, but he has yet to emerge from the house. Nathaniel, apart from Mr. Miller, my father is very much alone. I need to rush over immediately.”
Christina felt a deep sense of unease in her heart, and there was a slight tremor in her voice. She was also a little out of breath as she had spoken too quickly.
Nathaniel pulled Christina into his embrace and gently stroked her back to comfort her. “I’ve secretly arranged for people to keep an eye on him. If Nigel and Mrs. Lazuli want to hurt him, they won’t act until they achieve their goal.”
Christina looked at him in surprise and asked aggrievedly, “Why didn’t you tell me that you sent someone to protect my father?”
Nathaniel smiled and replied, “Well, I was worried you’d misunderstand my intentions. You were so busy with work that I never found the right time to come clean about it. Christina, don’t be mad at me.”
Christina was not an unreasonable person. Instead of anger, she was filled with gratitude. “I’m not mad. I’m just thankful that I have such a caring husband,” she said with a smile. However, at the thought of the predicament Timothy was in, she furrowed her brows tightly. “I’m going to get dressed. We’ll still make the final flight to Hallsbay in an hour.”
Nathaniel held her back and said. “I’ve asked Sebastian to arrange for a private jet. There isn’t any news from Hallsbay for the time being, which means he’s all right for now. There’s no telling if Nigel is waiting for you to come to him of your own accord. You’re now the CEO of Gibson Corporation, after all. He will only get the most benefits from you.”
Despite the fact that Nathaniel had analyzed the situation to comfort Christina, her heart had long been in turmoil. “Nathaniel. I’m terrified. I’ve already lost my mother, so I can’t lose my father too. We’ve only just mended our relationship, and I’ve yet to bring my mother’s killers to justice…..”
“Don’t be scared. I’ll be with you all the way.” Nathaniel’s words seemed to have the magical powers of putting her at ease. “Just wait here. I’ll get your clothes.”
“Okay,” Christina nodded and quietly brushed away the tears in the corners of her eyes.
Half an hour later, Christina and Nathaniel boarded a private jet heading toward Hallsbay.
Nigel and Azure had been involved in a serious disagreement over whether to send Timothy to the hospital. Their argument had reached a stalemate as they both sat on the couch.
Nigel wished that Timothy would not survive, but Azure still cared about the fate of her child. Although she favored Nigel, she had never wanted Timothy to die. All she wanted was for Timothy to change his mind and give Nigel a second chance to turn over a new leaf. She also hoped that Timothy could take Gibson Corporation away from Christina.
From the bottom of her heart, Azure refused to acknowledge Christina as a member of the Gibson family,
If anything, she shifted the blame for the disintegration of the Gibson family on Christina alone.
To this day. Azure still held on to a shred of hope that the relationship between the brothers could be mended.
As long as Timothy was willing. Yerek could be his son and provide for him until his death.
In fact, Azure had only one request. She wanted the Gibson family to belong to the Gibsons alone.
Just then, the butler walked over in a frenzy, panting. “Mr. Nigel, something terrible has happened!”
Nigel was already furious. When he heard that, he glared at the butler and snapped, “If you can’t speak properly, I’ll have your tongue ripped out!”
The butler looked at Nigel in fear, but the words he wanted to say were stuck in his throat.
“Well? Get on with it,” said Azure coldly, reminding him to pull himself together.
The butler looked at Nigel cautiously and said, “The mansion is surrounded by a lot of people who look like fierce thugs. They warned us that anyone with the audacity to leave the mansion would do so at their
Nigel slammed a fist onto the table and got up in a rage. “I’m going to find out who it is who has the audacity to behave like thugs on my turf!”
Azure hurriedly got up to stop him. “Nigel, don’t be rash. Right now, we don’t know what their motives are. However, we can be certain that it’s you they’ve come for. If you go out to meet them, it can be very dangerous. Why don’t you stay inside where it’s safe?”
Nigel, who was about to turn the doorknob, suddenly pondered over this for a moment. His heart began to race wildly as he said, “Apart from that mutt. Jasper, who else would go to war with me? He wants to threaten me, but he doesn’t have the right to!”
Nigel pushed open the door and strode out. However, when he saw the number of security personnel blocking the entrance, he immediately went back indoors. He hastily pushed Azure further inside and locked the door.
Nigel leaned against the door and sighed deeply as his expression turned grim.
Azure had poor eyesight, and she was pushed back indoors before she could see anything clearly. Taking in Nigel’s pale countenance, she asked worriedly, “Nigel, what did you see?”
“How many underlings does Timothy have?” asked Nigel darkly. “That mutt of his has managed to rally up so many people! Mom, we were all deceived by Timothy’s crippled appearance. He’s nowhere near as pathetic as he looks.”
Azure was at a loss for words when she heard this. She quickly walked up to the second floor, stopped at the spiral staircase, and drew open the curtains to monitor the situation outside in secret.
The road outside the mansion was dimly lit, but she could vaguely make out the outlines of black cars neatly parked around the mansion with their blinkers on. Azure also noticed the movement of shadowy figures outside, Given how densely they moved, she could tell that there were a large number of people gathered outside.
Azure had never witnessed such a horrific scene. She was so frightened that she hurried downstairs to see Nigel once more. “Nigel, why don’t you go out and talk to Jasper?”
Nigel took a deep breath and replied, “On what grounds? If he wants to have a chat, then he can bring that brat Christina along with him. Don’t worry about this, Mom. We’ve already done what we’re not supposed to do. The only thing left is for Christina to beg me.”
Azure did not agree with Nigel at all. “Christina is not someone you can just get along with easily. On top of that, she has Nathaniel’s support. Do you think you can beat Nathaniel?”
Once again, both mother and son were locked in a disagreement over their differing opinions. By that time, Nathaniel and Christina had arrived at the mansion.
Jasper immediately went up to meet her. “Ms. Steele, I’ve done everything according to plan. The mansion has been surrounded as well. Earlier, I spotted Mr. Nigel opening the door briefly, but I’m not sure why he suddenly turned on his heel and retreated indoors.”
Christina’s cold gaze was fixated on the tightly-shut security door. “Ring the doorbell.”
Jasper directed one of his subordinates to ring the doorbell, but there seemed to be no movement indoors. The once-lit living room immediately went dark.
“Take that door down!” said Christina in a deep voice.
