The Enigmatic Return novel Chapter 459

Neera was not in a hurry, so she sat up from the bed, waiting quietly while absently touching her forehead.

To her relief, the fever had completely subsided!

After a while, Jean finally entered the room.

Noticing Neera was awake, he was surprised. Taking a few steps closer, he asked, "Are you awake? How are you feeling now? Are you better?"

Neera responded, "Yes, the fever has gone down completely. I'm feeling much more comfortable now."

Curious about why Jean and Ian were still there, she questioned, "Why haven't you left yet? I overheard you mention Sonny. Did something happen?"

Jean did not hesitate to share the information. "It's a minor incident. After Tilda was arrested, she initially refused to reveal the identity of the mastermind. But tonight, she suddenly changed her stance and claimed that Startales was manipulated by the Beauvort Group. According to her, the director of the company deceived her as she claimed she was innocent."

Neera's expression turned somber upon hearing this.

Tilda's actions tonight were likely planned under some external influence. However, she was currently detained in police custody. In theory, she should not be able to communicate with outsiders, right?

"Has the Crimea Group been in contact with Tilda? Or did they manage to place someone on the inside?"

"I haven't contacted her personally. I've had people keep a close watch. Tilda isn't someone they can meet freely. But Sonny did have some connections. I've found something..."

Jean's tone held a hint of disdain. "Tilda's sudden change in stance is probably a result of the Crimea Group having some leverage over her. Plus, Ian discovered that all the ghostwriters who spread negative rumors about your company and the Beauvort Group online were planned by the Crimea Group."

While the news was not surprising to Neera, the news still left her feeling disgusted.

"Sonny is like a pesky fly that just won't go away no matter how much you swat at it! Despite being born into wealth and being the head of a prominent company, he's resorting to such petty tactics. He's becoming more despicable. How disgusting!" Neera expressed her disdain and frustration with Sonny.

Hearing her scold Sonny with a wrinkled brow, Jean could not help but chuckle.

The way she scolds someone is rather amusing...

"You're right, but don't let it get to you. It's not worth getting worked up over someone like him. Don't worry, I'll handle this matter," Jean reassured her.

Tilda would face appropriate consequences, and Sonny would have to answer for his actions as well.

Curious, Neera asked, "What are you going to do?"

Rather than giving a direct answer, Jean posed a question, "Do you wanna know?"

Neera nodded earnestly. "Yes."

Jean smirked, his exquisite features emitting a charm that could leave someone dazzled.

Neera was momentarily captivated by him.

However, Jean kept his plan under wraps. "I mean, you can if you want to, but focus on taking care of your health first. Once you're feeling better, I'll bring you to deal with this matter together, alright?"

Upon hearing his words, Neera was momentarily speechless as if her heart had been tickled by a feather.

Was it her imagination?

For an instant, she sensed that Jean might be playfully coaxing her!

Her heart skipped a beat and she instinctively studied his expression.

His eyes were deep, his expression was gentle, and the smile tugging at his lips was undeniably captivating.

Neera intended to maintain eye contact, but for some reason, her cheeks began to burn, and her heartbeat accelerated involuntarily.

Am I going to have a fever again?

Feeling the heat rising in her cheeks, Neera instinctively lifted her hand to cover her face, attempting to cool down. At the same time, she asked, "Take me with you? Where are… we going?"

Unaware of what was wrong with her, Jean replied, "To see Sonny."

Neera was momentarily taken aback. Lowering her hand, she met his gaze and asked directly, "See Sonny? Are you planning to confront him in person?"

Jean admitted, "Yes, it's time for him to face the consequences."

Observing his confident demeanor, Neera grew intrigued and promptly agreed.

How could she pass up the chance to see Sonny suffer?

"Alright, it's a deal. Now have a good rest and recover soon. I'm sure I'll be much better by tomorrow."

Amused by her enthusiastic expression, Jean could not help but smile. "Sure thing. Goodnight."


With that, he swiftly left her room and returned to the next door.
