By the time Karl finally appeared in the office, it was already forty minutes later.
Midway, Claire called Karl, but Karl did not answer.
As soon as Karl came in, Claire walked up to him angrily and asked, “Where have you been?”
“Meeting.” Karl bypassed her and walked straight behind the desk.
Claire rolled her eyes and asked tentatively, “You just went to a meeting?”
Karl stared at her with an unpredictable expression: “Just talk about it.”
Claire didn’t have any suspicions either. In her opinion, Karl had always looked like this unpredictable, she was used to it.
She raised her foot and walked to Karl’s desk: “I haven’t seen Grace for a few days, so I missed her a little bit. I went to your house today and I have something to tell you.”
As she said, she took out a voice recorder from her bag and pressed the play button while placing it in front of Karl.
There was a noise in the recording, and then there was a dialogue between two women.
“You follow Karl, isn’t it just to try his power and money? How much money do you want to leave him?”
“Even if I’m trying to use his power and money, how could I leave him because of how much you dole out? Wouldn’t it be better to stay with him and be the mother of his child?”
“However, how much do you plan to give me to leave Karl? If the amount is what I like, I can think about it.”
Claire knew who the voices of these two women belonged to Karl could hear.
She turned off the recording and said sternly, “Karl, you heard it too. This is what Alyssa’s mouth said. As long as I pay a little, she can leave you. Is such a woman what you want?”
In Claire’s view, a man would feel disgusted when he heard a woman say such things.
What’s more, Karl is the CEO of Adams’ and has the highest decision-making power.
How could such a man be able to tolerate it, his own woman just fancy his own property and power.
Claire had a good wishful thinking in her heart, but she had forgotten that Karl had never been with her.
She originally thought that after Karl listened to the recording again, he would definitely dislike Alyssa.
However, Karl just asked, “How much do you plan to pay for Alyssa to leave me?”
It can be seen that Claire did not know that Alyssa had lost her memory.
Claire’s face changed slightly: “Karl, what do you mean?”
There was still no expression on Karl’s face, but Claire felt inexplicably dangerous.
If she doesn’t answer this question well, there may be more cruel things waiting for her.
Karl curled his lips slightly, and there was a bitter chill between his eyebrows and eyes: “I asked you first, you answer my questions first.”
“I just lied to her. I didn’t expect her to be so uncomfortable.” Claire was also clever at this time, not daring to answer his questions directly.
Karl’s voice suddenly became lighter: “You don’t like Alyssa. That’s why there was an explosion on the island at that time. You were wrong to let the search and rescue team save her, right?”
“I was just anxious about your injury at the time. You were seriously injured at the time. You are my brother. I naturally want to take care of you first. Besides, didn’t Peter and the others go to save Alyssa? Isn’t she okay now? ?”
Claire originally had a guilty conscience, but when it comes to later, not only did she not feel guilty, but she felt that she was justified.
Karl laughed suddenly, but the smile was as cold as his expression.
“But didn’t you say that I don’t have much friendship with Peter. Since there is no friendship, why should he save Alyssa?”
“Alyssa and Peter have friendship. Isn’t the relationship between that star and Alyssa very good?”
Claire was worried, but luckily wanted to make the final struggle.
“Claire, you think I am a fool.” Karl’s words were declarative.
Claire’s face turned pale suddenly: “Karl…”
Every excuse and reason she made seemed to be full of loopholes.
Karl showed some impatience in his eyes, he lowered his head to look at the documents in front of him, and said casually: “I gave you a chance, but you don’t have a word of truth, go out.”
There was no trace of blame or anger in his tone, as if he was facing a subordinate… No, his tone of voice to Smith was better than that of the moment.
Claire wanted to defend herself again, but as soon as she opened her mouth, she felt that something was blocking her throat, and she couldn’t say a word.
She turned and went out, and after closing the office door, she reached out and covered her face.
The eyes were sore and tears came out.
She is the proud eldest lady of the Adams’ family, she has the existence that countless celebrities look up to, she can’t cry…
Inside the CEO’s office.
Karl’s eyes fell on the recording pen on the desk.
Just now Claire walked in a hurry, and did not take this recording pen away.
Karl reached out and took it, and listened to the recording again.
After a while, he sneered and put the recording aside.
Claire’s visit did not affect Alyssa.
Claire hates her so much, but she doesn’t know why Claire hates her.
At this time, amnesia seems to be a good thing for her.
She went to the kitchen to cook, and Grace drove her toy car to the kitchen.
Grace has become particularly sticky to her recently.
She heard the movement and turned to look at Grace: “Why did you come in?”
Sitting in the toy car, Grace blinked and said, “I want to help you.”
After Alyssa finished speaking, she took a small stool and placed it in front of the small sink, took green vegetables and tomatoes, and let her wash there.
While Alyssa was cooking, Grace was watching.
When she saw what Alyssa put in the pot, she muttered what she wanted to eat, looking very greedy.
It’s a snack food.
When serving the dishes, she took out Grace’s bowl and asked Grace to take it to the restaurant by herself.
Grace did the same. After putting the bowl on the dining table, she looked at her with a pleasurable expression: “I’m ready.”
Alyssa picked up a chicken wing and gave her: “Reward for you.”
When Karl came back, he saw such a scene.
Grace was holding her small bowl, and chewing on a piece of chicken wings so that her mouth was greasy. Alyssa held a mobile phone to take pictures of Grace 360 degrees.
Karl handed the suit jacket in his hand to the servant and walked straight over.
The eyes of Grace caught a glimpse of Karl, and called out vaguely, “Dad.”
Karl responded and turned to look at Alyssa.
Alyssa felt that Karl’s eyes looked a little weird.
While eating, Karl didn’t say anything.
But Alyssa always felt that today’s Karl was weird.
At night, when Alyssa coaxed Grace to fall asleep and came out, she saw Karl standing at the door.
Alyssa wasn’t prepared for a while, and was taken aback.
She took a deep breath, then looked at Karl angrily, “What are you doing here?”
With a cold face, he kept silent, just guarding the door, not knowing what he wanted to do.
Karl dropped these words and turned and left.
Alyssa looked blank, but still followed.
When he arrived at the study, Karl took out a recording pen.
Karl pressed the play button in front of her.
This recording pen was the one that Claire showed to Karl before.
There was a familiar voice of dialogue.
Alyssa didn’t expect Claire to record. Although the methods were a bit low-level, with Karl’s uncertain character, the ghost knew what he would think after hearing this kind of recording.
When Karl came back at noon, Alyssa left Claire angrily, but Karl didn’t say anything, thinking it was all over.
But she didn’t expect Karl to be here waiting for her.
The content in the recording was finished, and Karl hugged his arms so as to follow her in time.
He didn’t speak, and there was no expression on his face.
Alyssa couldn’t figure out what he was thinking, so she had to follow her without speaking.
“What amount is in your mind?” Karl asked coldly.
Alyssa thought of what she had said before, and she was a little speechless for a while.
Karl narrowed his eyes and took a step forward. The toe of his shoe had already touched the toe of Alyssa.
The two were too close, and Alyssa could feel the bitter breath on Karl’s body.
She wanted to take a step back. Under Karl’s gaze, her feet seemed to have taken root, she didn’t dare to move.
Karl’s dark eyes squinted dangerously, and his voice sounded over her head, “In other words, how much do you think I’m worth?”
Alyssa said very soberly: “No… priceless.”
Just because of nervousness, her voice stuttered a little.
Karl raised his eyebrows, as if he was a little surprised that Alyssa would say this.
Seeing Karl kept silent, Alyssa felt a little nervous.
Could it be that she was so hypocritical that Karl didn’t believe it?
However, Karl’s actions at the next moment dispelled her doubts.
He suddenly stretched out his hand and pressed it gently on Alyssa’s l!ps, rubbing them.
Immediately, Alyssa heard Karl’s deliberately lowered voice: “Speaking so nicely, your mouth must be very sweet.”
His voice was originally very low, but when it was deliberately lowered, it showed a bit of a mature man’s s3xuality.
Alyssa froze, allowing Karl’s fingers to press on her lips, with a hint of flirtatious movement, but she didn’t feel lighthearted at all when it was done by Karl.
Alyssa was stunned for more than ten seconds before reacting violently, patted Karl’s hand, and took a step back: “Mr. Adams, please pay attention to your identity, don’t be like this all the time.”
“Oh.” Karl replied faintly.
Alyssa didn’t know whether he listened, and explained to him: “The words in the recording are just to anger your sister. Don’t take it seriously.”
Karl replied noncommittal: “Yeah.”
Alyssa took a deep breath patiently.
Forget it, I can’t always guess what this person is thinking, just ignore it.
After Alyssa went out, Karl twisted his fingers lightly, curling his lips and showing a smile.
Claire has not had a good time these days.
Ever since she went to find Karl with the recording that day, Karl began to claim power in the company.
In recent years, Karl has been at the helm of the company’s large and small decisions and wind direction.
As for those shareholders, they all understood that only under the leadership of Karl could they make more money.
In the previous three years, Karl hadn’t expressly expressed his intention to monopolize the power, and those shareholders naturally did not express much.
But now that Karl wanted to take power, those shareholders naturally turned to Karl’s side.
In the business world, there are no pure friends and enemies, only common interests.
Suddenly, Claire’s situation in the Adams’ family became more subtle.
She is still the vice CEO, but she does not have the right to speak, nor any real power.
What she usually handles is just insignificant contract items.
She was completely emptied of power and became a dispensable person in the Adams’ family.
Claire thought about it, and finally decided to find Karl.
However, when she arrived at the door of the office, she was stopped by Karl’s secretary: “Vice CEO, there are several high-level executives reporting work inside.”
“Are you going to let me wait outside?” Claire glanced over, and the secretary immediately stopped talking, but did not let go.
At this time, several senior managers who were looking for Karl’s report came out.
When they saw Claire, they also called out: “Vice CEO.”
Claire nodded as usual before raising her foot and walking in.
As soon as she closed the door, she walked towards Karl’s office angrily: “Karl!”
Karl raised his head from the pile of files and looked at Claire blankly.
When Claire was so aggressive, her arrogance disappeared in half when she saw it like this.
“Karl, what do you mean now, do you intend to take me up? Those shareholders are all profiting, are they credible? I am a relative who is related to you by blood, and I am the person you trust most!”
Smith sent the papers in, and as soon as he pushed the door, he heard what Claire said.
He realized that the timing was wrong and wanted to quit.
But Karl had already seen him and said, “Take it in.”
Smith had to deliver the documents to Karl’s desk.
There were outsiders, but Claire did not continue to say what she said just now.
She was going to wait for Smith to go out before continuing, but when Smith was about to go out, he was stopped by Karl, “Wait a minute.”
Karl talked to Smith and put Claire aside.
Claire suppressed her anger, waiting for Karl and Smith to finish speaking.
However, while waiting for Smith to finish talking with Karl, Karl said, “Please ask the vice CEO out.”
Smith also knows the actions that Karl did in the company recently.
He walked straight to Claire and asked her out gently: “Vice CEO, Sir still has work to deal with.”
Claire didn’t even glance at Smith, walked straight to Karl, picked up the file in front of him, and threw aside: “Did you hear what I said just now?”
