Read Exes to Lovers: A Remarriage Journey By Colette Drake Chapter 9 – The Children Were Not His
Theodore put down the pen in his hand and said, “Yes.”
He would never bring personal affairs to work. As long as the cooperation with Liquor could bring benefits to his company, he would not let go of the opportunity even though Liquor was his ex-wife’s boyfriend.
“But Mr. Wade of Milly Group has been refusing to see our person.”
Theodore had already expected that.
“Check his schedules for today and send it to me. I’ll go there myself.”
Ivan nodded and went out. After a while, Theodore received Wade’s schedules for today on his phone.
Wade had a meeting about domestic fashion week in the afternoon, and he would go to Hollys Kindergarten to pick up the children at four
Theodore’s eyes flickered when he saw the schedule for picking up the kids. He looked at the time, and it was almost four o’clock in the
afternoon, so he got up and went out.
Hollys Kindergarten was very famous in Findli City. The children who could go in were either rich or powerful. So they had a better start than other children. It seemed Wade valued the two children very much, otherwise, he would not arrange them here.
When Theodore arrived at the entrance of the kindergarten, the bell rang for the end of class at four o’clock. After parking the car across the road, he saw Wade at first glance.
Milly Group was a leading international high-end brand within the country. As the founder, Wade was always fashionable and eye- catching. Even the Maybach he drove was one of the three exclusive cars in the world.
At this moment, Wade was standing by the car and looking at the children who came out. As soon as Andre and Sheila came out and saw
him, they rushed over and hugged his thighs.
“Uncle Wade! I miss you so much.” Sheila was always sweet. Wade felt his heart almost melt and picked her up to kiss her.
“Little sweetheart, I miss you too.”
Andre also smiled. “Sheila did very well today. She didn’t cry or make trouble. Mum will be happy when she hears it.”
Wade held Andre with the other hand. “Really? You are so good today. Since your mother is not here, how about I take you to eat fried
“Wow! That’s great!” Sheila was elated, and Andre was also happy.
Then Wade led the two children into the car and left.
All of this was seen by Theodore not far away. He seemed to hear those two children called Wade… uncle?
His brows tightly frowned in an instant, and he immediately started the car and followed them. Wade took the two children to the most famous Korean restaurant in Findli City.
Theodore was wearing a mask and sat down at the next table facing the three people while they were not looking.
Sheila and Wade enjoyed the food very much, but Andre wiped his mouth after taking a few bites.
When Sheila was about to eat the fourth piece, Andre reached out to stop her. “Sheila, have you forgotten what mum said? You can’t eat fried food too much. You’ve already had enough.”
Sheila was displeased instantly when she heard the words. When Wade was about to eat another one, Andre stopped him. “Uncle, you are the same.”
A trace of embarrassment flashed across Wade’s face immediately. “Come on. Why are you so mature at such a young age? You don’t eat these on weekdays. It’s okay to eat them occasionally.”
“That’s right, Andre. Mum is not here, and Uncle Wade rarely takes us out. Please let me eat one more.”
Andre looked at them and finally shook his head helplessly. “Alright. This is the last time.”
Theodore frowned instantly when he heard the words. This boy’s personality was completely opposite to Wade’s and was somewhat
similar to his.
But he was sure that these two children called Wade uncle, not dad.
So who was the dad of these two children?
A bold idea came into his mind. Looking at Andre’s age and appearance, Theodore was suddenly shocked. When he came back to his senses, the three people behind him had finished eating and left.
Theodore turned on his phone and dialed his friend’s number.
“Help me investigate two people.”
On the other end of the phone, Clyde Bradley was indulged in the bar at the moment. He kept looking at the coquettish woman in the opposite booth and covered one ear and shouted. “Who do you want me to investigate? It seems they’re unusual.”
“Cut the cr*p. Will you help me or not?”
“Of course. How can I refuse? So who are they?”
“Milly Group’s Wade, and his assistant Lora.”
Clyde said with a smile, “Lora? Isn’t that your ex-wife? How did she become his assistant?”
“It’s a long story. I need to know their exact relationship and details.”
“Okay. I will call you when I find out.”
After hanging up the phone, Clyde stared at the woman not far.
Loria was celebrating with her artist Lillith Riley at the moment. Feeling Clyde’s gaze in front of her, she smiled and raised her glass calmly.
Seeing Loria greet him, Clyde immediately raised his glass. Seeing Loria might be interested in him, he got up and walked towards Loria.
“Miss. I have been watching you for a long time. I think you look very much like my first love. I wonder if I have the honor to chat with you?”
Loria looked at the man in front of her and smiled widely. Then she got up slightly and leaned towards him.
Just when Clyde thought he was going to succeed, she whispered in his ear, “I think you are very similar to my a*shole ex-husband. It’s
better not to know each other.”
After speaking, she walked away proudly.
Clyde was a little stunned. Obviously, the result didn’t live up to his expectation.
Lillith, who was wearing a mask, couldn’t help but sneer when she saw this. She got up and laughed. “Confident man, don’t you think your
way of accosting is too old-fashioned?”
“What!” Before Clyde spoke, the two had already left. Clyde was in a daze and then shook his head and smiled helplessly after a while.
“Beautiful woman always has a unique personality,” he thought in his mind.
“Loria, you really kick a*s. We have long disliked Yvonne. She thinks she can lord the world since she’s with Mr. Franklin. Who does she
think she is? If it wasn’t for him, she couldn’t even enter the entertainment.”
