Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort chapter 36
When Charlotte turned around, she saw Hector.
He held her tightly in his embrace, just like her protector.
She could see the longing and pain in his eyes.
At that moment, Charlotte felt emotions swell within her, as if she had returned to the past.
“M-Mr. Sterling…” Ms. Horner widened her eyes in shock and thought that she was seeing things.
When he saw the cut on Charlotte’s hand, Hector furrowed his eyebrows and barked at Ms. Horner, “What gives you the right to touch her?”
“Erm…” Ms. Horner was so frightened that she felt a chill down her spine.
“Mr. Sterling, Mrs. Sterling and Timothy just left.”
Ms. Zane meekly reminded him as she assumed Hector had mistaken Charlotte for Luna.
Hearing those words, Charlotte regained her senses. That’s right, Hector is married to Luna now and they even have a son. I shouldn’t have any more fantasies.
With that thought in mind, Charlotte pushed Hector away immediately and stepped to the side.
“I know, I asked them to head home first.”
Hector recovered his usual elegant demeanor. Looking at the two children in front of Charlotte, a sudden mix of emotions engulfed his heart.
Robbie and Jamie had rushed to protect their mother when Ms. Horner confronted her. It was just that Hector beat them to it.
At that moment, they stood guard in front of Charlotte with their fists clenched, just like little lions looking at Hector warily.
In a corner, Ellie who was being held by Mrs. Berry widened her watery eyes and stared in fear.
“Are they… your children?” Hector looked at Charlotte knowingly.
“Yes!” Charlotte averted her gaze. Will he hate me for my impulsive actions then?
Despite his calm exterior, Hector subconsciously clenched his fists.
After a brief silence, he told the principal, “Ms. Horner, I have seen the security footage and it was indeed Timothy’s fault.”
Ms. Horner had lost track of what was going on. She could only nod and agree to whatever Hector said.
Hector knelt down and gently asked Ellie, “Little girl, did Timothy color your hair with paint?”
“Yes.” Ellie grumbled with a pout, “He was the one who bullied me and my two brothers only warned him about it. They didn’t hit him. It was he who threw the crystal ball out the window in a fit of anger…”
“Yes, I know.” Hector apologized to her sincerely. “On behalf of my son, Timothy, I would like to say sorry to the three of you and also to your mother.”
Seeing the scene that had just unfolded before her, Ms. Horner and Ms. Zane were equally shocked.
As for Mrs. Berry, she heaved a sigh of relief. Mr. Sterling hasn’t changed.
As Charlotte looked at him intently, she realized he was just as gentlemanly and chivalrous as always.
“Mommy,” Robbie tugged at Charlotte’s sleeve and asked softly, “Do we forgive Timothy’s dad?”
Before Charlotte could reply, Hector added, “When I return home later, I will punish Timothy accordingly. I will also tell Mrs. Sterling to personally apologize to all of you.”
“Erm…” Ms. Horner was stupefied to the extent she felt her head buzzing. She wondered if Charlotte had a powerful background or perhaps the three children were Hector’s illegitimate kids.
“Furthermore…” Hector turned toward Ms. Horner. “I have called the school board and told them that you are not suited to manage this school. It’s better they look for someone else.”
“Ms. Horner!” Hector interrupted her. “I heard everything that you have just said to Ms. Windt. You are right that I can destroy one’s future with a single word. However, that person isn’t Ms. Windt but you instead.”
“You’d better apologize to them sincerely and leave quietly. Maybe, I will consider showing you some mercy,” Hector threatened.
