Charlie wade knew that Stephen Thompson had once been his father’s beloved, and back then, his father must have made very detailed arrangements, and although he had been in the Wade family for so many years, in reality, more of his energy was spent on completing the tasks that his father had given him back then.
Thinking that Zhou Japheth was also a part of his father’s arrangements, I reckon that Stephen Thompson should have heard about him as well.
Thus, Charlie wade said to Lin Wan’er, “I never asked Butler Stephen too many details before, it seems like I need to find him and ask him about it today.”
At this moment, Charlie wade, in his heart, was thinking that in order to figure out everything that happened back then, as well as the arrangements that his father had left behind, even if it meant psychologically suggesting to Stephen Thompson, he must ask Stephen Thompson everything he knew about it, through and through.
Thinking of this, he said to Lin Wan’er, “I’ll go find Butler Stephen now.”
Lin Wan’er nodded and asked him, “My lord, can my slave come along?”
Charlie wade said without thinking, “Of course!”
After saying that, he joined Lin Wan’er and walked out of the room where his parents had been back then, wanting to find Stephen Thompson and ask him about it.
When he arrived at the main hall, the old man Lord wade was sitting alone and drinking tea.
Seeing Charlie wade come out, he asked curiously, “Charlie, how are you sorting out your parents’ relics?”
”Still sorting it out.” Charlie wade returned, and asked him again, “Grandpa, where’s Butler Stephen?”
Lord wade said, “He just said that he had something temporary to do and went to do it first, are you looking for him?”
”Right.” Charlie wade nodded and said, “He’s not here then I’ll give him a call.”
Saying that, he took out his mobile phone and called Stephen Thompson.
But what Charlie wade never expected was that the operator’s tone came from the other end of the phone, “Sorry, the phone you have dialled is switched off ……”
In Charlie wade’s impression, Stephen Thompson’s mobile phone was never switched off, this was his basic professionalism as a big housekeeper.
His sudden departure at this juncture, and the fact that his mobile phone was paradoxically switched off, made Charlie wade smell a few anomalies.
However, he didn’t tell Lord wade, instead he said to him, “Grandpa, I’m going back to Aurous Hill tomorrow morning, when you meet Butler Stephen tell him that I’m looking for him for something, and ask him to give me a call back.”
Lord wade nodded slightly and asked Charlie wade, “You didn’t get through to him just now?”
Charlie wade nodded and said, “It was switched off, probably because the phone ran out of battery.”
”It shouldn’t be ah ……,” Lord wade frowned and said, “In these ten or twenty years, I can’t remember when the Four Seas’ mobile phone has run out of power,”
Charlie wade smiled, “There are always special circumstances for everything, Grandpa, you should rest earlier.”
Lord wade said, “Oh yeah, before Four Seas left, he told me that the guest room has been packed, if you guys are tired, rest early, the old mansion didn’t arrange for a maid today, if there is any need, feel free to tell me.”
Charlie wade smiled and agreed, so he gave Lin Wan’er a wink, and the two of them went back to the previous study.
As soon as they entered the study, Lin Wan’er couldn’t help but say, “Your Excellency, that Butler Stephen’s mobile phone was suddenly switched off, is it because he guessed in advance that you would definitely look for him to ask questions?”
”It’s possible.” Charlie wade sighed and said, “He suddenly left without saying goodbye, why do I suddenly have a feeling in my heart that it will be very difficult to see him again in the future, he is a smart person and knows that he can hide for a while, but not for a lifetime, so it’s impossible for him to switch off his mobile phone tonight, and then rejoin the Wade family tomorrow as if nothing happened as if nothing had happened, unless he has already planned to leave this time after which he will never show up again.”
Lin Wan’er was surprised and spoke, “Now that it’s come to this, what else can’t Butler Stephen tell His Excellency? Hasn’t he been fulfilling the tasks given to him by Your Excellency’s father for so many years? Why did he suddenly leave without saying goodbye at this time? Could it be that he knew that Your Excellency would look for him to enquire after seeing these photos?”
