Charlie hung up with his eyebrows deeply furrowed.

His informant reported to him that a group of gangsters who had apparent connections with Clark had been spotted in G City recently, which meant that there was a good chance they had already made contact.

Was Clark planning to introduce his drug trafficking operations into G City?

At the thought of that possibility, Charlie couldn't help himself from being worried.

If Clark really turned out being an untrustworthy man, Charlie was adamant that he should not be allowed to continue being the leader of Dark Night Group anymore!

"Father!"

Amanda strutted in wearing a smile on her face, holding in her hands a bowl of soup she had requested the maid to prepare.

"It's kind of cold right now. Have some soup, please."

Amanda placed the soup in front of him on his desk and playfully urged her father to enjoy the soup. The steam rising up from the soup brought the study some much-needed warmth.

"Thank you, my dear. I appreciate it, I really do. But please keep yourself out of the kitchen, okay? There's no need for you to worry about what meals the maids are going to make. I don't want you to get your hands burnt."

As usual, Charlie subconsciously got worried about her hands again. But from the expression in Amanda's eyes, it was obvious she got a little bit frustrated when he mentioned about her hands.

"My hands...They are no longer capable of playing the piano. Why should I care about them?"

Lowering her head to avoid looking Charlie straight in the eyes, Amanda suddenly moved her right hand toward the left side of her waist and then she began to caress it. She looked so despondent, to say the least, so sad and alone.

It broke Charlie's heart every single time he saw his precious daughter acting like that.

"Please try not to think about it too much. I'm going to find the best doctor in the world for you, and I'll have you treated then. The day will come when you would be able to play the piano again! Just trust me!"

With his fatherly love and so much tenderness, Charlie tried his best to comfort her.

"F

ng to the group if I leave it all to him."

Charlie purposefully hid one crucial piece of information from Amanda, that Clark was involved in a ring of drug traffickers. He couldn't risk her finding out these horrid and terrible dealings. It would be best if she didn't know anything about it and remained innocent.

"Well, would you like me to discuss this with him? If he comes back to the company, it could be beneficial to you, and also, it would lessen your workload considerably," offered Amanda.

She was caught by surprise, as she wasn't really expecting to hear that Clark had been spending his sweet time dealing with other things instead of managing the Dark Night Group like he was supposed to. That being said, she still thought that there might still be a chance she could convince him personally.

"No, there's no need for you to do that. You'd only be wasting your time. What I would like you to do is to take good care of yourself, okay? Stop keeping in touch with Clark!"

All of a sudden, Charlie felt so nervous and uneasy that the tone of his voice turned cold.

Clark was just like a ticking time bomb now. There was no telling what his next move might be. All Charlie could hope to do was to keep his daughter out of harm's way and prevent her from communicating with dangerous people. If his daughter somehow got caught up in that mess, his heart wouldn't be able to handle it.
