Beloved Has Risen from Death’s Embrace ( Xanthea and Mirand ) Chapter 164

Chapter 164 

Xanthea apologized profusely, “I’m so sorry, how about I send you the diner’s address and you can go with Jason?”

“No need.”

Ben shook his head, “If it’s not with you, it’s not the same. I’ll just grab something quick at the studio. But remember, you owe me one now. Don’t forget to make it up to me next time.”

“Absolutely!” Xanthea laughed, “I’ve got to run now.”

Goodbye.”

Ben watched her retreating figure; his smile slowly faded as she walked away.

She had been on the phone just now, and it seemed like she said Orion?

Orion Lockwood, chairman of the Twin Towers and the elusive power behind Starlight Media, owned an extensive business empire that spread across the country and he was also the youngest tycoon listed in the international Forbes rankings.

The last time they planned to have lunch, Xanthea left midway, supposedly to meet him, and that fancy LANDSCAPE handkerchief she carried matched his style too,

Jason watched Xanthea’s hurried departure and wondered aloud, “Ben, Ms. Nightshade has stood you up twice now. What or who could possibly be more important than you?”

In the industry, countless celebrities lined up to dine with Ben, only to be declined. Yet, he had warmly Invited her twice and both times she had declined the invitations!

If it weren’t for Ben’s feelings for her, Jason would think she was incredibly ungrateful!

Ben turned away, “A formidable competitor.”

A formidable competitor?

Ben was the heir to the Jones family fortune, the sole successor of the Jones Group, a celebrated actor who had swept all major awards in the entertainment industry, and had millions of followers on Twitter. Who could possibly rival him?

At the Twin Towers café.

“Ms. Nightshade, over here!”

Cedric, sitting by the window, saw Xanthea and quickly stood to wave her over.

Xanthea scanned the café, making sure he was alone, then asked, “If we’re meeting at your company’s building, why isn’t Orion here?”

“Ms. Nightshade, please, have some coffee first.”

Cedric pushed a cappuccino towards her and sighed after a few seconds.

“The boss is sick.”

“What?” Xanthea paused while setting down her purse, “Sick?”

“Yes, he’s been running a fever for three days now, a severe one, and he hasn’t told anyone or taken any

medication. He’s been busier than ever at work, acting like a tireless robot. Sometimes, he might go an entire day without eating, and he never sleeps regularly.”

“Last night, around three in the morning, he suddenly called me to bring some documents over. When I arrived, I discovered he had been working all night. Out of curiosity, I wanted to see when he would leave for home. I saw his office light stay on until dawn. I don’t even know if he slept at all.”

“Why would he do that?” Xanthea was stunned, “Is the Lockwood Group in trouble?”

“No, the operations are running smoothly.”

“Then he must be out of his mind!” she raised her voice unconsciously, “He had such a high fever, yet he did not take medication, nor take rest, and still worked like crazy; does he not want to live?!”

Looking at her intensely concerned expression, Cedric was somewhat puzzled, “Ms. Nightshade, do you. care about the boss too?”

Cedric shook his head as if he had asked a foolish question.

had actually killed the couple who harmed her. He knelt before her grave with bloodied hands, kissing her body, saying, “Xan, it’s too cold underground, I’m here to accompany you.”Reborn into her youth, Xanthea tormented the shameless bastard, Matthew and the despicable woman, Miranda, while also curiously investigating Orion, as they were completely unfamiliar before. Unexpectedly, as soon as they became familiar with each other, she was cornered by the man. “Xan, you know full well that I love you deeply, yet you dare to provoke me! In that case, never think of leaving me.”
