Chapter 38 Henry’s Coming Back Soon (1)
Robert’s mood dropped when he had those thoughts.
He was leaning against the head of the bed and enjoying the care his fiancee was showering him in by feeding him food and water. She didn’t act like the pampered daughter from a wealthy household at all.
Melora was an attractive woman, and Robert was not a man who would starve himself.
After he instructed his subordinates to leave, he immediately trapped his fiancee under his body.
The woman blushed and pointed at his chest with her slender fingers as she gasped sensually, “Get up. You’re injured!”
However, seeing the pure male aggression in his deep–set eyes made her shudder.
The temperature in the ward grew so hot it was boiling. Being the pa**ionate lover that Robert was, he only let Melora go after two hours. After they were done doing the deed, Melora nestled in his arms shyly and asked lovingly, “Did something happen to you today?”
The man drawled, “Not at all. I missed you, is all.”
Hearing that, Melora kissed him and snuggled closer.
She gently informed him, “Henry will be home in two days. Come and have a meal with us! There are several company projects that my brother oversees. I think a few of them would be suitable for you. You have to perform your best then.”
Robert didn’t say anything as his gaze became dimmer.
As much as Melora was reluctant to leave him, she knew that he didn’t like it when she was clingy. Because of that, she left after staying only for half the day.
When she got into the black RV, she couldn’t help but give Henry a call.
Henry had just turned on his phone after having it off because of an important meeting he had today.
“Melora?” He greeted her when he picked up the call. “Is something the matter?”
Melora’s eyes were still glazed from the intimate session she had with Robert. She drew circles with her elegant fingers as she softly murmured, “Henry, you have to help me.”
Henry loosened his necktie as he asked, “What’s the matter? Did someone do something to you?”
The woman whined, “It’s Robert! He got hurt! I asked him who did it, but he refused to tell me.”
Henry didn’t say anything when he heard Robert’s name.
Melora then muttered under her breath, “So many things happened today! I met Seth today, Henry. He told me that Crystal’s father took his own life in jail. Poor thing.”
Henry immediately stopped tugging on his necktie,
He asked again, “What?”
Melora didn’t suspect anything and repeated, “I’m talking about Seth’s girlfriend! Her father was in prison

for an economic offense, remember? He ended his life… I pity them…”
Henry didn’t give a response. He only told Melora after a while that he had something to do and needed to hang up.
She panicked and she murmured, “But Henry, I’m not done talking!”
“We will talk next time.”
Henry called Crystal several times, but none of his calls got through because her phone was off.
He eventually decided to call Jake instead.
Jake explained what happened before he chuckled. “Henry, this is the perfect time for the hero to save the princess.”
Henry also let out a laugh, albeit a bitter one. “Are you seriously making fun of me now?”
After hanging up the phone, he immediately had his secretary book a flight for that evening. The secretary was surprised by his request. “Mr. Miller, you have to attend a trial tomorrow morning.”
Atrial! Henry suddenly came back to his senses. I can’t believe I forgot about it!
The trial was about a case that he had been busy with for a month. As he would get the results of the trial tomorrow, he wouldn’t be able to get away no matter what.
After carefully considering it, he wrote his secretary, Jamie, a note.
“Please make a trip to Barnwood and look for Miss Winters tomorrow morning. This is her address and phone number. Tell her to give me a call!”
Jamie, who had seen Crystal before, smiled and commented, “Miss Winters is absolutely gorgeous!”
One glance from Henry was all it took for Jamie to shut up.
After the secretary left, Henry continued to work on the information he needed for the trial the next morning. He would call Crystal every one or two hours. However, he couldn’t get through to her even until late at night.
In the wee hours of the morning, he booked a flight scheduled for the next afternoon.
