The Enigmatic Return novel Chapter 143

Ian's efficiency was undeniable, and by the afternoon, the investigation results were in.

"Sire, if you hadn't ordered the investigation, we wouldn't have known. Ms. Garcia's aunt is far more formidable than we imagined! Her business empire overseas is massive!" Ian exclaimed.

Jean was surprised but didn't say anything, raising an eyebrow to signal him to continue.

"I can tell you that Adriana has established a commercial empire abroad, with businesses spanning various fields such as pharmaceuticals, clothing, jewelry, real estate, cosmetics, financial investments, and more," Ian continued, catching his breath before carrying on.

"And what's more, the ANXIN Group, the foundation of this empire, is something the Garcia family in Kingsview is unaware of."

Jean's surprise grew at the extent of Adriana's influence abroad. He pondered for a moment and then asked, "Did you investigate the company the triplets mentioned today?"

Ian was prepared and nodded, "I already looked into it. The triplets didn't lie. The ANXIN Group is indeed highly successful in investments. Moreover, their internal investment department is exceptionally proficient, ranking among the top overseas, not far behind our Beauvort Group!"

This revelation left Jean even more astonished. He had never expected that Neera's background would be so extraordinary. All these years, she had kept quiet, and after returning to the country, she hadn't made any waves. Jean didn't delve further into the matter since he was just curious and had no ulterior motives or intentions to harm the triplets.

After gaining a rough understanding, he refocused on handling the paperwork.

In the early evening, he received an unexpected call from his father, Frederic.

"Dad, is there something wrong?" Jean asked.

Frederic grunted disapprovingly over the phone, clearly unhappy. "What's this? Can't I call you if there's nothing wrong? You ungrateful kid, you got married and don't even come back home! If I didn't call you, you'd probably forget your old father completely!"

Jean leaned back in his chair, playing with a pen, and casually replied, "Come on, it's just that I've been busy lately."

"Don't give me that excuse!" Frederic snapped, then changed the subject, "Enough of this nonsense, I have something important to tell you. You're married now, so bring your new wife back this week for dinner. Your uncles, aunts, and your siblings will all be there."

Upon hearing this, Jean stopped twirling the pen, his brow furrowing.

Family gatherings of the Beauvort family were always full of scheming and hidden agendas. There was little warmth and affection among them. Since taking power, Jean's cousins and siblings had been wary and dissatisfied with him, secretly making moves against him. Some even wished he were dead!

Bringing Neera into such an environment was the last thing Jean wanted, but he couldn't defy his father's orders.

Frederic anticipated Jean's reluctance and continued firmly, "I don't care what you have going on, put it aside for now. You must bring your wife back. She's already a part of the Beauvort family, regardless of the reason or any mistakes she may have made. Sooner or later, she'll have to meet them. Besides, both of you didn't attend the wedding banquet, which was already impolite. It's unacceptable to be absent from this family dinner!"
