My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 5

Chapter 5 – Figured It Out

Dr. South?

Keira thought, “Why didn’t I know that I was to recruit Isla?”

Professor Miller also exclaimed, “You know Dr. South?”

Isla gave a slight smile, “It’s such a coincidence. My mom helped Dr. South get through school back in the day, so after Dr. South succeeded, he found my family and said that my mom was his lifesaver. For the past few years, he has been providing technical support to our company. He wouldn’t refuse any of my requests.”

Keira raised her eyebrows slightly.

When she was young in the Olsen family, she relied on Mrs. Olsen’s care to grow up.

Therefore, after she had her own career, she contacted Mrs. Olsen under the name “Dr. South” and invented that story so that she could have a reason to repay Mrs. Olsen’s kindness.

For the past few years, she had been helping Mrs. Olsen’s companies with any technical issues for free.

But when did she become so compliant with Isla’s requests?

That was such an exaggeration.

However, Professor Miller believed Isla. “Where is Dr. South teaching now?”

Isla replied, “I promised the dean that I would invite Dr. South to teach at our university.”

“That’s great!” Professor Miller was overjoyed and looked at Keira. “Keira, your research direction is the same as Dr. South’s. When the time comes, I’ll introduce you to him. If Dr. South is willing to speak for you, there might still be hope for your postgraduate recommendation!”

Isla pretended to be worried. “Professor Miller, are you sure? The Horton family is the richest family in Oceanion, and they allocate a lot of research funds to our university every year…”

Professor Miller didn’t take this seriously. “Dr. South is in high demand now. I heard that foreign universities like Heddon University and Oxford have all sent him invitations, and many businesses want to invest in him. If Dr. South is willing to step up, the university will definitely choose Dr. South!”

Isla feigned a sigh. “But Dr. South is doing this for my mother’s sake. If it were for me, he would definitely help us, but Keira is my father’s illegitimate daughter and stands in opposition to my mom… Keira, should I ask Dr. South for you?”

Keira said, “Don’t bother.”

She found Isla like a clown.

Keira smiled slightly and said to Professor Miller, “Professor Miller, don’t bother. As you know, I never wanted to do postgraduate studies.”

Professor Miller was surprised, and he felt sorry for Keira.

He was the one who discovered Keira’s talent in the major, and with that, he insisted that she got a postgraduate recommendation. He didn’t expect things to reach this point.

Tears welled up in his eyes. “Then I’ll write you a job reference.”

Poppy sneered. “Don’t waste your efforts. She offended Mr. Horton, and she still wants to find a job in Oceanion? She must be dreaming.”

Professor Miller was indignant. “I don’t believe that anyone can really do whatever they want in Oceanion! If you really can’t find a job, come and be my teaching assistant! I’ll hire you!”

A warm feeling surged in Keira’s chest. She explained, “Professor, there’s just a misunderstanding between me and Mr. Horton. Everything will be fine after we clear that up. You don’t need to worry.”

Professor Miller sighed. “If you can clear up the misunderstanding, come back and be my student again.”

Keira looked at the ardent expectation on her teacher’s eyes and spoke softly, “Sure. I’ll come back.”

It would be nice to be a tutor at the University of Oceanion.

However, Isla clenched her fists.

She didn’t understand. She was an excellent student, but why did Professor Miller only value Keira, who was just an average student?!

Was this old man also mesmerized by Keira’s pretty face?

Isla was furious, but she glanced at Poppy, then suddenly said, “Keira, are you going to bother Mr. Horton again? He’s already married. It’s not right for you to do this…”

Poppy was indeed consumed by anger.

Smack!

The sound of a slap echoed in the office.

Keira’s cheek was stinging, she couldn’t believe that Poppy would suddenly slap her in front of Professor Miller!

Poppy showed no guilt at all. She pointed at Keira’s nose and cursed. “You ungrateful wretch! After a few years, I see you’ve forgotten the rules of the house! Apologize to your sister right now! Promise that you’ll never see the Hortons again!”

The warmth in Keira’s eyes slowly faded, leaving only coldness.

It seemed that Poppy didn’t take her seriously when she talked about “the last time” the other day. She still treated Keira as the ignorant girl who used to obey everything and respected Isla.

Keira thought, “If she can’t be reasoned with, don’t blame me for being ruthless…”

Isla was watching from the side, and a sense of satisfaction arose from the bottom of her heart.

When they were little, Keira would cringe in front of her. She never retaliated when scolded or fought back when beaten.

After Keira moved out, they met again in college. Keira still looked poor, but she was no longer obedient.

Isla thought, “It seems that she hasn’t been beaten for years and has forgotten her place!

Let Poppy teach her a lesson today.”

Isla was still thinking about this when she saw Keira slowly come over to her, presumably to apologize.

Isla smiled, but something unexpected happened at the next moment!

Keira suddenly raised her head and slapped each of Isla’s cheeks in turn.

Smack! Smack!

Isla was stunned and befuddled by the sudden assault.

Poppy yelled and rushed over. “Keira Olsen, how dare you!”

Keira suddenly turned around!

Her eyes were filled with a chilling look. She looked like a demon who had crawled up from hell, exuding an aura of bloodthirst!

Poppy was frightened by her demeanor and froze in shock. “What… what are you going to do? You ungrateful wretch, I’m your mother! Are you actually going to raise your hand against me? You unfilial beast!”

“You’re a heartless mother, so don’t blame me for being unfilial!”

Keira’s voice was cold, and she stressed each word. “Stop casting judgment on my life, otherwise whatever you do to me, I’ll make Isla suffer double the amount!”

She turned away from them and bowed deeply to Professor Miller. “Thank you for looking after me over these four years. I’ll be back.”

Having said this, she turned around without hesitation and left.

It wasn’t until Keira left the room that Poppy came back to her senses. She quickly rushed to Isla’s side. “Isla, are you okay? How dare that bitch hit you? That’s outrageous!”

Isla touched her swollen cheeks, her body trembling with anger, but she calmly asked, “Where did she get the courage to do this?”

Poppy was stunned, “Does Mr. Horton really take a liking to her? That’s impossible. She’s married. How can Mr. Horton like damaged goods…”

Isla felt the same.

But thinking about Keira’s enchantingly beautiful face, Isla suddenly felt unsure…

Professor Miller was shocked by everything that had happened.

He looked at Poppy incredulously. When he heard her foul language, he couldn’t help but wonder,

“Is she really Keira’s mother, not Isla’s?”

He didn’t know if it was just his imagination, but Professor Miller suddenly felt that the two women in front of him looked somewhat alike…

Just as Keira walked out of the school gate, Samuel called.

“Boss, I figured it out! I know why Lewis claimed to be married but doesn’t know who you are!”
