The Double Life Of My Billionaire Husband Novel Chapter 156 Free Online (Natalie Quinn and Sebastian Klein novel)

Sebastian stood up, towering over Adolf.

When he looked down at the man, the latter was so daunted that a shiver ran down his spine.

“Is that so?” Sebastian could tell that this wasn’t as simple as it seemed.

Adolf swallowed the lump in his throat.

“Mr.Larson, it really was my idea.I wouldn’t lie to you, would 1?”

“Adolf, you’ve been working here for years.”

Sebastian lifted his chin; his eyes, filled with animosity.

“It seems that Adolf plans to keep his mouth shut, but I don’t have any evidence to prove that he’s lying.I can’t punish him, because in all fairness, he gave me a perfect excuse”

he thought He decided not to say another word and just let Adolf go for the time being.

Just as Adolf reached the door, it was opened from the outside.

“Brandon, I have a document here that needs your signature,” Charis said with a calm smile.

The moment she learned that Sebastian had called Adolf to his office, she was so nervous.

She feared that Sebastian might find out what she had done.

Thus, she came up with an excuse, so that she could see what was going on.

“Mr.Pierce, what brings you here?”

Charis nudged Adolf, and the latter winked at her, implying that he didn’t rat her out. She heaved a sigh of relief inconspicuously before walking into Sebastian’s office, only to find that he was on his phone, seemingly chatting with someone.

There was a rare smile printed on his face.

Sebastian high school days.

When she was sixteen years old, she thought Sebastian was a cold, emotionless young man who kept everything to himself, living in his own world.She yearned to see him smile.

Now that the dream had come true, it didn’t bring her any joy.

Strangely, she felt depressed.

Any woman would kill to see the smile on his handsome face.

However, the doting look on his face and tender eyes broke Charis’s heart, because she knew it wasn’t for her, and it probably never would.

Charis blinked and returned to her senses.She quickly strutted toward Sebastian and dropped the file before him, stealing a glance at his phone.

Just then, new messages popped on the screen.

“Sebastian, when will you come? I’m starving.”

“Be patient.l’ll be there soon,” Sebastian replied.

Charis had never seen him behave this way before.She knew who Sebastian was texting.

After all, who else would he text other than Natalie? Jealousy reared its ugly head.

Charis clutched the document in her hand.

Sebastian’s tenderness and the undisguised love and care in his eyes infuriated her.

Her blood boiled with rage.

After sending the message, Sebastian quickly flipped through the document Charis brought and signed his name.

Seeing that Charis had no intention of leaving, he looked up at her and said, “Anything else? Hurry up.It’s almost time to get off work.”

Sebastian shut down his computer and gathered all his things, preparing to leave.

Charis guessed that Sebastian was hurrying to leave work because Natalie wanted him home.

Judging from the conversation, it looked like he had a date with Natalie tonight.

“You can’t leave now.I heard from the financial department that there is a huge loophole in our overseas capital chain.It’s a critical situation. We have to deal with it right away,” she said, pretending to look anxious.

Originally, Charis, didn’t plan to mention this issue.She knew how to solve it and didn’t want to bother Sebastian.

But she changed her mind and deliberately mentioned it to Sebastian to stop him from going on a date with Natalie.

After all, it was obvious Sebastian wouldn’t like her regardless of how good she was at work, so why bother? “What exactly happened?”

After a moment’s hesitation, Sebastian put down the file and looked at her.He had always trusted Charis’s working skills and potential.

Sebastian knew she was well organized and competent enough to deal with any problems.She wouldn’t turn up to him unless it was a complicated problem she couldn’t solve.

Seeing the anxious look on her face, Sebastian thought it was a critical situation.

“Why don’t we go to the financial department and let them tell you more? If we can’t handle it well from here, we might have to go on a business trip abroad to solve the problem.”

Charis knew Sebastian well.He was workaholic and valued the Larson Group above everything else.

After a moment’s hesitation, Sebastian nodded.

“You go to the financial department first.I’ll be there in a few minutes.” Sebastian took out his phone and sent a short message to Natalie, telling her that there was an emergency at the convenience store and he wouldn’t be able to join her tonight for dinner.

After that, Sebastian went to find Charis and began dealing with the problems.

Natalie’s mind slipped out of focus when she read the message from Sebastian.

What had happened? He had already agreed to have dinner with her.

Why did he now suddenly say that he couldn’t make it? “That sucks!”

She put her phone aside and began packing her things up in an unhappy mood.

Gerda noticed that she looked unhappy so she nudged her and said, “We have all heard the exciting news! You’re going to be the chief designer of a project, why do you look so down?”

“I’m not unhappy. You’re just imagining things!”

Natalie pinched Gerda’s chubby face gently and made a face at her.

Regardless of what Sebastian had said, she was in a good mood today so she didn’t let it get to her.

Perhaps he really was caught up with some kind of emergency.

When Gerda noticed that Natalie was about to leave, an idea popped into her head.

“It’s your first time in charge of a project. Would you like to celebrate the achievement perhaps? There is a new pizza place downtown.I heard the pizza from there is amazing.Do you want to give it a try?”

Natalie blinked her eyes with confusion.

After due thought, she nodded and said, “Sure, I’m free tonight anyway.”

In any event, it didn’t seem like Sebastian would be home any time soon.

Gerda was happy when she heard Natalie’s answer.

But then she replied with a crestfallen expression on her face, “But I don’t know if I have the time to get pizza.I have to finish my last design draft urgently today. That pizza place is really popular, we might have to wait in a queue for a while.”

Natalie was amused by the sad look at Gerda’s face.

She responded, “Take it easy.I’ll got ahead of you and wait in the line, then you can come join me later.How does that sound?” “Natalie, you are an angel from heaven!” Gerda hugged her and kissed her appreciatively.

“I love you so much.”

“Alright, alright.Go finish your design quickly, or the pizza might get cold by the time you get there!” Natalie smiled and said.

Then she lifted up her bag and made her ways to the elevator.

Meanwhile, Charis was standing on the higher level of the building, waiting for Sebastian to complete his perusal of the financial statement.

From her vantage point, she looked through the window and her eyes fell on a woman standing on the roadside.

Judging from the woman’s figure, she guessed that the woman was none other than Natalie.

She seemed to be waiting for a taxi to pick her up.

Lauren had asked Charis to inform her immediately when she saw.

Natalie get in a car.
