In the reception room on the second floor of the old castle, the whole European court style decoration, the high-end leather sofa, and the gorgeous lamps showed how rich and powerful its owner was. Unlike the glazed windows on the third floor, the window in the area was simple. It was a little ajar, so the sound of waves crashing against the jagged rocks could be heard faintly. Sometimes, even the searchlight could be seen through this window. There were dozens of different kinds of wine in the cabinet against the wall. Each bottle was rare and incredibly expensive. On the bar counter in front of that cabinet, wine glasses of all kinds, preciousness, and rarity glimmered in the light. Mac sat at the bar counter without saying a word. The dim light around reflected his pale face. Mac listened to Carman Xiao quietly. The glass in his hand empty, and he refilled it with the oldest, rarest, and most expensive wine in his collection. Carman Xiao didn't dare disturb Mac and could only stand aside and wait for his order.

Mac sat here for several hours. He had no idea what Hayley's leaving meant to him, but he knew very well that he had the strong woman cornered. She was so strong that she wouldn't leave anything to fate. In the past few months, Mac had seen with his own eyes that no matter what Hayley encountered, she always faced it calmly. It didn't matter if it was an enemy or him.

"Sir, we haven't found her yet," Carman Xiao reported in a low voice, afraid that Mac would be unhappy again and punish his incompetence. Carman Xiao was Mac's assistant. He had been working for him for many, many years and Mac had always treated him as his brother. Because of that, he knew him well enough to know when he was upset.

"Why are you still standing here? Go on! Look for her!" Seeing Carman Xiao just sulking there annoyed Mac. 'Why couldn't he do his job right?' he thought. Despite this valid criticism, he knew that he was just venting his anger on others. He wasn't angry at his team's incompetence. He was angry because he had feelings for a killer. To his defense, Hayley was a woman who could not be ignored.

Hayley was excellent in every way. She was like a lady of a royal family—she was proficient in lyre playing, chess, calligraphy, and painting. Mac still remembered that that time when she told him that painting and writing would improve one's character. Although he knew that she was just playing with him, he nodded in agreement. But above all of that, her smile was the best part about her. Mac remembered that although Hayley greeted others with a big smile at the party, she ignored him and only showed him a cold face. At that time, Mac's greatest pleasure was to make Hayley laugh, because she always had surprises he didn't expect. At that time, even he himself didn't know why he did that.

Pouring more wine into his glass, Mac smiled with self-mockery. At that time, he had completely forgotten the purpose of getting close to Hayley. After downing down his refill, he filled his glass once again. However, this time, he was stopped by a hand, and the alcohol was snatched away from him.

"Mac, you can't drink anymore." Neal Nangong sat down next to Mac, reached for a

n empty cup, picked up a few pieces of ice, put them in the glass, poured the wine into it and drank it all.

Raising his eyebrows, Mac looked at Neal Nangong and snorted, "Why are you here? Do your people know you're visiting my humble house?" Then he grabbed his glass from Neal and drank it.

"Is this a humble house? As the president of the DQ Group and the new leader of the MQ Faction, will you live in a humble place?" Neal said in a mocking tone.

"If you come to me just to talk about this, you can get out now." Mac didn't want to talk to him.

"Humph, you said you wouldn't fall in love with her!" Neal Nangong was also surprised to receive the call from Carman Xiao. He was one of the few people who knew Mac's true identity. The fight between the MQ Faction and the Gu family was no longer a new thing in their circle. In order to destroy the MQ Faction, Neil had even asked his adoptive daughter to play the honey trap, which surprised them. Neal Nangong shook his head. At this moment, he really wanted to see how Neil would react if he knew that his plan had failed. But only a few people knew who the leader of the MQ Faction was. How did Neil know?

Neal Nangong knew that Mac didn't like him to ask about the MQ Faction, but he had never seen Mac like this. He was acting like this because of a woman, and this woman was his enemy's adoptive daughter.

"I heard that Hayley committed suicide?" Neal Nangong knew that Mac had fallen in love with Hayley. Hayley chose to commit suicide in front of Mac. She used such a decisive method to resist him. Neal Nangong had thought Zac would go mad, but he was wrong.

"Why did you mention her?" Mac picked up his glass and drank from it. "Let's drink."

"You haven't found her yet. Maybe she is still alive," Neal Nangong comforted Mac.

Mac didn't even look at him and continued to pour wine into his glass. He knew what Neal Nangong was doing. How could she be alive after she jumped down from the castle? He couldn't help but feel annoyed whenever he remembered Hayley's expression before she jumped. 'Why did Hayley choose to die so easily? Isn't she always strong?' Hayley was never a weak woman. She would not quarrel with him, and she wasn't a person who could not bear a blow. What she did was too unexpected for Mac.

"Bring them back," Mac said to Neal Nangong in a hoarse voice. His men had been searching the surrounding area for four hours now, but they couldn't find anything. Because of that, Mac had lost hope.

Hearing what Mac said, Neal Nangong looked at him in disbelief. Then he thought for a while with a serious expression and said, "How about let them continue? Maybe she is still alive."

Mac didn't reply but drank silently. Neal Nangong knew that Mac had made a decision and there was no room for negotiation. No matter what he said, he would not change his mind. He sighed and didn't say anything more. He stood up and dialed Carman Xiao's number.

When Neal Nangong came back, he brought back news. "Mac, Carman said that he found the black cloak that Hayley was wearing when she jumped. There are blood stains on it. It seemed like she was injured because of the fall, but her body was nowhere in sight."
