My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 14

Chapter 14 – Puppy

Keira asked, “What’s his name?”

She was quite curious about who this “Grandson” was.

Given the wide range of her work, there was a chance they had met.

The old lady gestured her over. Keira bent down, moved closer, and then heard what the old lady said. “I’ll only tell you. You mustn’t tell anybody else!”

“Okay.”

The old lady cleared her throat, “His nickname is Puppy.”

Keira was dumbfounded.

The old lady explained, “My grandson was born in the year of the dog. He was only a little over two pounds at birth. The doctor said he wouldn’t live long, so I gave him this name, hoping it would bring him good luck!”

“…”

Keira’s mouth twitched, barely holding back her laughter.

From the old lady’s words, it was clear that her grandson was at least the CEO of a company. Did his subordinates even know he was called Puppy?

Just as she was about to ask his real name, the old lady started speaking again, “Granddaughter-in-law, the clothes here aren’t good. Would you accompany me home to get a few more this evening?”

Keira had just heard the old lady’s voice message to “Grandson”, so she knew he would be home too.

Since they had agreed to meet, she didn’t decline. “Okay.”

After finding a nice place to have lunch, Keira was planning to send the old lady home to rest and then go to see Lewis Horton.

But the old lady said, “I’m not tired at all. I’ll go to work with you. When you finish work, you can go home with me.”

She seemed to be afraid that Keira might regret it and not go home with her.

Such an old baby…

Keira agreed in resignation.

They arrived at the site of a charity donation event organized by the government.

Keira arranged for the old lady to go to the resting room and then, with her press ID in hand, took her seat in the hall.

Today, Lewis Horton would be representing the Horton Group in making a donation.

She sat right in the middle of the front row in a perfect position to be seen by him.

She even talked to the organizers so that she would be picked to ask a question later.

In front of all the people, she was planning to hint to Lewis Horton that he should check his marriage status at the Bureau of Civil Affairs!

Upon hearing the hint, Lewis wouldn’t look too happy.

Keira imagined a wonderful scene.

The activity began, and soon the host mentioned the name of Horton Group.

Keira was excited and was waiting for Lewis Horton, but she saw Tom Davis on the stage.

Tom gave Keira a meaningful glance, “I’m sorry, but Mr. Horton had something else come up today. However, the donation from Horton Group must still be delivered as planned…”

Keira’s smile froze on her face.

She took out her phone and saw a message that Samuel sent her five minutes ago. “Boss, all of Lewis Horton’s recent schedules have been temporarily changed!”

What a cunning man!

But it likely wasn’t because of her. After all, in Lewis Horton’s eyes, she was someone he could easily ignore.

It was likely that he had discovered his schedule had been leaked and had to change it temporarily for safety reasons.

Who was he attempting to avoid?

Keira continued her interview. In the end, she handed over the equipment and interview materials to a colleague from the same newspaper and let them leave first.

She went to the resting room to fetch the old lady and then went to a car manufacturing factory.

This was a branch of the Horton Group.

While Lewis could cancel the rest of his schedule, this kind of grassroots factory inspection had already been prepared by the factory, so he couldn’t just change it on a whim. That would be disrespectful to so many workers.

Sure enough, after Keira and the old lady waited in the coffee shop outside the factory for a while, they saw a low-key black Bentley drive into the factory gate.

Keira asked the coffee shop staff to look after the old lady while she walked to the factory.

She showed her temporary worker ID to the gatehouse. The gatekeeper glanced at it and then said, “I’m sorry, but Mr. Davis ordered that during Mr. Horton’s inspection, all deliverymen, maintenance workers, as well as interns and temporary employees, are not allowed to enter.”

“…”

Keira knew it would be like this!

Tom was really going out of his way to stop her from seeing Lewis Horton…

Keira smirked, then handed over another work badge. Seeing it, the gatekeeper immediately stood upright and looked at her with admiration. “Please come in.”

Keira took back the work badge and casually went into the gate.

She quickly found Lewis Horton.

The man was inspecting the workshop under the guidance of the factory head. All the workers were outside the door, and the entrance was guarded by bodyguards, making it impossible to get in.

Keira could only look at him through the glass window from a distance.

The man was dressed in a suit, and his handsome face and luxurious demeanor contrasted sharply with the dark, cold machinery around him, creating a visual feast.

He was listening intently to the factory head, occasionally interjecting, which left the factory head amazed. Three to five minutes later, the factory head was thoroughly impressed with this new CEO.

Suddenly, the man seemed to sense something, turned his head slowly, and met eyes with Keira.

Keira waved at him.

But Lewis Horton frowned and looked away.

At this moment, Tom stepped forward and pulled down all the blinds, cutting off all sight.

Keira was speechless.

Once again, she was escorted out of the factory by the bodyguards, and Tom scolded the gatekeeper at the gate. “Didn’t I say that interns and temporary workers were not allowed in?!”

The gatekeeper stammered, “But she’s not an ordinary temporary worker, she…”

Tom scoffed and interrupted the gatekeeper, “She’s indeed extraordinary…”

After all, how could an ordinary person hold so many jobs?

Tom was extremely annoyed. He said angrily to Keira, “Miss Olsen, our boss didn’t want to stoop to your level before, but you just wouldn’t take the hint. You’ve bothered him over and over again. If you dare to show up in front of him again, we will report you for harassment!”

Keira sighed, “If you don’t want me to continue bothering you, just go to the Bureau of Civil Affairs and check whether Mr. Horton and I are married. Why won’t you believe me?”

Tom sneered, “In our country, all formalities must be completed for a marriage certificate, and there’s no way a certificate will be issued when the parties involved aren’t present. Your lies are absurd and ridiculous. Only a fool would believe such nonsense!”

“…”

Keira now knew that this argument was futile.

She shrugged and said helplessly, “Then I guess I’ll just have to keep bothering you.”

Tom sneered. “Do you really think you can see our boss whenever you want? If you ever see him again, that would mean I’ve failed as an assistant! If that happens, I’ll eat excrement live on broadcast!”

Keira didn’t say anything else and turned to leave.

It seemed that tomorrow she really had to resort to drastic measures.

After picking up the old lady, Keira sent a WhatsApp message to “Grandson”. “Granny wants to go home to get some clothes. What’s your address?”

“Grandson” quickly sent a location.

He sent another message. “I’ll be done soon Where are you? I’ll pick you up.”

Keira opened the location and was shocked when she saw it.

No. One Manor… Wasn’t that the Horton family’s residence?!
