Alden’s words immediately attracted the attention of everyone in the secret room.
Duncan was the first to stand up and asked, “What other way?”
Ninian showed her eagerness as well, and even Everett, who had always been stoic, looked over.
“George, my eldest brother, just called,” Alden explained. “He said that my parents had been conducting a study for years.
“Now that the preliminary research has been successful, perhaps we can actually extract the implanted chip inside Everett’s body.”
As soon as his words were out, Duncan’s face flushed with excitement.
“I didn’t hear it wrongly, did I? What did you say? Can we remove the implanted chip in Everett’s body?!”
“Alden? Is that true?” Ninian’s eyes were filled with disbelief as well.
Everett’s expressions were a lot calmer than those two,
but there were still unconcealable emotions swirling in his eyes.
But he still remained composed. “Alden just said there’s a possibility, so we can still try it, but don’t set your expectations too high,” he said to calm them down.
Duncan and Ninian’s expressions dropped slightly after they heard that.
Alden looked at Everett with approval in his eyes.
He nodded and said, “Everett is right. We can still try, but don’t expect too much. Everything can be done slowly, but don’t be disheartened if you don’t get the desired results due to your unrealistic expectations.”
Duncan quickly calmed down and regained the composure and rationality of the head of the Craig family.
“Are you saying that Mr. and Mrs. Winters have been researching this project all this time, but it hasn’t been experimented with yet? Would Everett be at risk if they tried it on him?”
“Not necessarily. No one can guarantee that this experiment will be fail–proof,” Alden said slowly, ” However, according to George’s understanding, the probability of success for this experiment had reached
sixty percent two years ago. But the details will remain unknown until my parents return to Cairnstan.”
“Okay, I’ll be ready then. I’d like to speak with Mr. and
Mrs. Winters face to face when they return to better understand the situation.”
To avoid alarming the enemy, the Winters and Craig families only monitored the entire criminal chain for now, but did not act immediately.
Now all eyes were on the Winters family members.
Melody, who had heard the news, rushed back home, and Brooklyn, who had finally waited for the rare
opportunity, followed her.
A day later, Ninian and Alden stood at the Craig family’s doors and greeted the Winters family’s large group.
The tall and handsome Duke led the group, with the stunning and classy Adina close beside him.
The Winters siblings were behind them, with Brooklyn at the very back. He made every effort to minimize his
presence, as it was clear that he had already experienced a wave of attack.
Ninian’s eyes welled up with tears as she saw the long- lost figures of her parents.
She raced forward and jumped straight into Adina’s arms.
The woman was elegant and breathtakingly beautiful. She opened her arms and caught her when she lunged
“Don’t be scared, Grapie. Mommy’s here now.” Adina’s voice was very pleasant and filled with gentleness, as one would expect from a mother.
“Daddy’s here too. We’re back to help you. Don’t cry.” According to legend, Duke, who once dominated the business world, was fierce and assertive, but in front of his daughters, he was a doting father, gentle and kind beyond recognition.
Ninian looked up from Adina’s embrace, pouted at Duke, and cried, “Daddy, I missed you all so much…”
The cry shattered Duke’s heart into pieces.
