“Pick up the call. He must be looking for you for something.”
Philip said as he stood with his arms behind his back. There was a calm look in his eyes.
That look made Rachel’s heart thump.
It was as if she was facing the lord.
The look in this guy’s eyes gave Rachel a very bad feeling.
It was too profound!
Especially behind that indifference, it revealed a sense of crisis that was under control.
Rachel furrowed her shapely eyebrows. She answered the call and said coldly, “What’s the matter?”
On the other end, Chester said respectfully, “Miss Clarke, everything is done. I’ve brought that little girl out. She has been secretly transferred to a safe location. Do you want to come over to take a look?”
Rachel’s heart trembled when she heard Chester’s words.
Oh no, this was bad!
She raised her eyebrows and looked at Philip who was standing in front of her. He was too calm.
Did it look like his daughter had been taken away yet again?
Of course not!
In that case, there was only one conclusion, which was, all of this had been plotted by Philip Clarke!
The person Chester took was not Philip’s daughter at all!
After thinking about it carefully, Rachel finally realized how terrifying the man in front of her was!
It turned out that everything had been under his control the whole time!
It had only been two days since he arrived in Cloudside, but he had already turned from taking a passive stance to being proactive. He had secretly laid out so much!
What a terrifying man!
Thinking of this, Rachel instinctively wanted to warn Chester. Just as she was about to speak, Philip made a shushing gesture at her. A cold smile appeared at the corner of his mouth as he said softly, “Don’t say anything. Otherwise, I can’t guarantee that you can leave here alive.”
Upon hearing these words, Rachel suddenly felt a chilliness spreading from the soles of her feet. Her body trembled.
What a terrifying killing intent!
The bitter chill radiated from Philip, shocking Rachel’s heart and making it shudder.
After thinking about it, she could only give up and say lightly, “Okay, I see. Send me the address.”
After saying this, she ended the call. She looked at Philip with a complicated expression and asked, “What do you want to do?”
Philip shook his head and said, “I can’t tell you. You’ll know when the time comes.”
Hearing this, Rachel’s face went dark. After a long while, she asked, “May I know how you found out I’d make such arrangements?”
Hearing this, Philip and Josh looked at each other with a smile, saying, “Don’t forget whose territory Cloudside is. As early as the moment you entered Cloudside, you were already on my radar. And every move you made, including every word you and Chester exchanged in this hotel suite, I know everything about them.”
After saying that, Philip took out two small wireless earplugs from his pocket.
Then, Josh walked to a vase in the suite and pulled out a wiretap from inside. He said, “It took me a lot of effort to install this thing.”
After saying that, he threw the bug in his hand directly at Rachel’s feet.
Rachel lowered her eyes and looked at the bug on the ground, feeling very annoyed.
She had actually been set up by others, and from the beginning to the end, she had been under the surveillance of others!
This made her feel very humiliated!
She was a person chosen by the lord and had been tested in many ways, so how did she overlook such petty little tricks?
She even fell into other people’s traps so easily!
“You actually monitored me?!”
Rachel was angry and chided coldly.
However, Philip simply ignored her, shook his head indifferently, and said, “To fight with me, you’re still far from worthy. You’re just a woman. If you were a man, you’d be kneeling and talking to me right now.”
Rachel was fuming when she heard that.
Damned this Philip!
How dare he look down on her?!
