My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 34

34 Nonsense

Isla’s eyes widened in disbelief as she stared at her

mother’s phone.

She wouldn’t mistake that voice!

The voice on the other end of the phone paused

slightly, then it turned colder still. “Isla, what are you doing with Mrs. Olsen’s phone?”

It was her!!

Isla felt as if she had seen a ghost.

No, it couldn’t be…

She glanced at her phone sharply, suddenly thinking of something. She asked, “Is this your phone number?”

Keira said, “What kind of question is that?”

That’s when it dawned on Isla!

She almost forgot that Keira’s nickname was also South, which was what Mrs. Olsen would sometimes

call her.

A tremendous sigh of relief escaped her lips, followed by boundless fury. “You’re such a sycophant! To get my

mother’s favor, you even put her family name in your nickname. Are you worthy of being called that?”

Keira lowered her eyes.

The name was something she had chosen when she was in elementary school.

“South” indeed came from the surname of Mrs. Olsen,

aka Jodie South.

Keira was young at the time and chose it simply because she liked it, never thinking about whether it

would bother Mrs. Olsen.

She was the daughter of a mistress, yet she adopted the wife’s last name. Keira wondered what Mrs. Olsen

felt at the time. She would never know now.

She said indifferently, “Did you call just to say this?”

“Of course not!” Isla tore off her mask of decency and said viciously, “I just want to tell you, even if you’ve charmed Mr. Horton through old Mrs. Horton, you’re nothing more than a mistress and a toy! Mr. Horton is a married man! I’m different though. I’ll marry Jake and become a legitimate daughter-in-law of the Horton

family!”

Keira said, “Then… congratulations?”

Isla felt as if she was punching cotton. She left a threat in the end. “You can’t just talk about feelings in a wealthy family. I have connections with Dr. South. I’ll always be in an unbeatable position!”

Keira’s mouth twitched after the phone call.

Since when had she become one of Isla’s pawns?

As she pondered, a WhatsApp call came in again…

This time, it was from Mrs. Olsen. She was calling “Dr. South” on WhatsApp.

Keira operated on her phone, picked it up, and said casually, “Hello.”

Her voice was changed by a device.

The appearance of Finley made her understand that some things were better kept low-key to avoid

unwelcome relatives.

Isla said respectfully, “Hello, Dr. South, sorry for the disturbance. I’m Isla Olsen, the daughter of Jodie South. I am calling on the Horton Group’s behalf. They

would like to invite you to join their R&D team. My mother also wishes for the same. May I ask if you…”

“Not interested,” Keira interrupted her coldly.

Isla halted. She wanted to say something more, but Keira said, “I only take responsibility for companies under Mrs. Olsen’s name.”

With that, she hung up.

Monday.

Keira left her puppy with the old lady and dutifully went to work.

As she stepped out of the hospital gate, contemplating. whether to take a taxi or the subway, a Bentley slowly stopped beside her.

Lewis looked straight ahead, saying indifferently, “Get

in.”

Keira refused, “I don’t think I should do that.”

The two weren’t on such good terms yet.

Lewis said, “Grandma asked me to drive you to work.”

“Von non iust tall her you did that”

Lewis glanced at her, “I need a photo for proof.”

“Fine…”

Keira opened the back door and sat next to Lewis.

Lewis raised his phone and took a selfie of the two of

them.

Keira posed with her two fingers raised and a sweet

smile.

She tilted her head, and a few strands of hair fluttered across Lewis’s face, leaving him rigid like he was

electrocuted for a moment.

In the passenger seat, Tom hesitated for a moment. He didn’t recall old Mrs. Horton making this request

before they left.

He must have missed it.

After taking the photo, Keira sat up straight and started busying herself on her phone.

The two remained silent until they reached the underground parking lot of the Horton Group.

Lewis took the exclusive elevator and left with Tom.

Keira, on the other hand, took the staff elevator up to

the R&D department.

At this time, the managerial staff of the R&D department were in a tense meeting.

The general manager of the R&D department announced a position change. “After the decision of the company’s top management, Jake, the team leader, is promoted to the vice president, who will be

responsible for the technical issues of the R&D department in the future!”

Someone asked, “Why is this announcement so

sudden?”

The manager said, “Vice President Horton successfully invited Dr. South to be our technical support in the R&D department. This is a big deal for the R&D department. Although Dr. South doesn’t work in the office, if any of you have any problems, you can ask Vice President Horton to communicate with him and solve the problem. Now, let’s have Vice President Horton say a few words.”

Jake stood up and spoke directly, “From now on, the research and development staff of the first and second teams have to listen to my commands. Mr. Riley, I

presume you won’t violate the company’s regulation?” Jalen, who had been working overtime all weekend at the company and had pulled two all-nighters, was wearing casual clothes with an air of irritation. He snorted coldly. “There’s another regulation at the company that doesn’t allow skipping ranks for reporting or assigning tasks. So, about my staff… you can only delegate tasks through me!”

Jake’s face darkened, “Mr. Riley, I see you don’t have enough energy to manage the staff of the first team. Have you solved your core problem yet? Although the R&D department is divided into teams, it’s also a whole. Your delays affect the progress of the entire project!”

Jalen abruptly stood up. “You also studied renewable energy, so you should know how difficult the research is. You make it sound like you can solve my core

problem!”

Jake spoke calmly, “I cannot solve it, but I have someone who can. Do you need me to ask Dr. South for help?”

Jalen scoffed. “I didn’t know you could be so kind.”

Jake’s eyes were filled with a cold light. “We’re all in the R&D department, so of course, I’ll show extra care. But I need one of your team’s technical staff to come over and assist me. How about that new intern? Deal?”

Jalen knew from the start that he was after Keira!

He said coldly, “No deal. I’ll do it myself slowly. Don’t bother asking Dr. South for me!”

Jake said gloomily, “Mr. Riley, don’t think that hiding behind my uncle can help you do as you please here! You’re responsible for delaying the entire R&D department’s progress! I’ll give you two more days. If you don’t solve that problem, I’m going to request your dismissal or demotion!”

Jalen walked out. “Then let’s see if you’re capable of

that!”

He was arrogant in the office, but once he stepped outside, Jalen lost his composure.

He knew even if Lewis wanted to protect him, if Jake really put forward a request, it would be troublesome!

Jalen entered the first team section of the R&D

department and kicked a chair angrily.

Luca was late for work. He quietly went to his

workstation, afraid of causing trouble with his agitated team leader.

He turned on his computer, opened his inbox, and saw

an unread email.

Huh?

An email from Keira…

Did she really solve the core problem?
