Read The Divorced Billionaire Heiress Chapter 1279 – What’s in It For You?
Clayton narrowed his eyes and stared at Quavon. He did not answer immediately.
His heart was suspicious, and he always felt that something was wrong.
Clayton had a bad feeling that kept spreading in his heart.
“It’s not up to you whether I want it or not. It doesn’t have anything to do with you either, so you don’t need to worry about me.”
Clayton said this, then turned around to leave the place. He wanted to see Nicole.
He wondered if Nicole was anxious when he disappeared.
However, just as Clayton took two steps out, Autumn shouted at him anxiously.
“Mr. Sloan, your body is still not recovered. Why don’t you have something to eat first?”
Clayton paused and looked back at her. There was indifference in his eyes.
“What benefit did Quavon give you that you’re here to offer your services?”
Autumn froze and stood there with a glum face.
She looked at Quavon sheepishly, wanting him to say a couple of good words.
Ouavon also spoke in due time.
“Clayton, Ms. Ferguson is Isaac’s junior in school. She’s also considered a family friend. I invited her to join Sloan Corporation as a department manager. When you return,
she’ll go with you.”
Autumn’s eyes lit up. She looked at Clayton with excitement.
Unexpectedly, Clayton let out a cold laugh.
“Department manager? It seems like there’s some sort of unseemly deal between you two, right?”
This sentence, undoubtedIy, unveiled the fig leaf that they intended to hide.
Autumn’s face changed.
“Mr. Sloan, how can you say that? Even if I had a conflict with Ms. Stanton before, I didn’t offend you. Why are you targeting me at every turn?”
Clayton’s gaze was cold and indifferent as he swept a glance at Autumn. He hooked his lips and smiled coldly. ” Isn’t the fact that you had a conflict with Nicole an offense to me?”
Autumn’s face became even more gloomy.
Clayton did not want to say one more word to Autumn and turned to look at Quavon with cold eyes.
“Also, Sloan Corporation has nothing to do with me. It’s Isaac’s. You’ve drilled this into my head for many years, so I didn’t dare to forget it. I don’t want to touch anything from your family!”
After saying that, Clayton turned around and left without hesitation.
Quavon’s face was cold and sullen. His voice was deep as Quavon called out to him.
“Clayton, even if you don’t want to touch it, don’t you want Michael to return to the Sloan family?”
Clayton paused in his footsteps. The veins on his forehead were bulging slightly.
He was trying desperately to restrain his emotions.
“Didn’t Isaac say that he wouldn’t let Michael go back to the Sloan family before he’s d**d? What, is Isaac d***g?”
Clayton finished his sentence and laughed lightly like he was watching a good show.
Quavon was agitated by the word “d***g”. His face abruptly became miserably pale.
“Clayton, don’t play dumb. Now that it’s come to this, I’m not settling accounts with you because you’re my son. That woman hurt Isaac like that, and you still dare to curse him a s if nothing happened? Isaac is your relative, so how can you side with an outsider?”
Clayton’s eyes were cold. He looked at Quavon bitterly.
For a moment, the air was stagnant.
Quavon glared at Clayton angrily, as if the emotions he had been holding back for a long time suddenly burst out.
“You’re happy that Isaac is like this now, right? Do you think that I want you to come back? If it weren’t for my blood flowing through your veins, if it weren’t for your last name, you would’ve never returned to the Sloan family! This is only because I know that things can’t be undone, that Isaac is forever bedridden and can’t possibly walk again. Sloan Corporation needs an heir who can hold the company up. Otherwise, you’ll never get this chance in your life!”
Quavon finished in one breath.
The air was bitterly cold as if the room froze in an instant.
