Chapter 38: If You Can’t Find Her, Don’t Bother Coming Back.
When Leslie arrived, Simon quickly went to greet him. Leslie’s appearance showed that
his identity was extraordinary
“Leslie, how is the situation? Simon couldn’t wait to ask, as the news brought by Leslie would have a significant impact on them
Leslie shook his head, but before he could speak, he heard Benjamin’s displeased voice coming from the study and hurriedly walked in.
Inside the study, Benjamin seemed to blend into the darkness of the night. The dim lighting in the room made him appear even more formidable.
With just a single glance, he made countless people pale in comparison, let alone those who had witnessed it firsthand.
‘Have you found her?” he asked.
During this period, Benjarnin’s thoughts had been fixated on Martina. He had sent his most trusted person to find her.
Leslie was a private detective and highly resourceful. He had a team of specialized investigators under him. The tasks he handled were usually executed swiftly and accurately. making him highly efficient.
Whenever Benjamin needed something investigated or any other matters, he would assign them to Leslie.
However, even with such a person and a team of people working diligently for half a month, they still couldn’t locate Martina’s exact whereabouts.
To be honest, Leslie felt embarrassed. He had been entrusted with high expectations, but the situation had turned out like this.
He didn’t dare to look Benjamin in the eye and spoke with a hint of guilt, “Boss, we still didn’t have any precise information.
“It was as if Miss Martinez had vanished into thin air. According to the investigation, she hadn’t made any transactions online recently, and there were no records of her travels
“Furthermore, her phone had been turned off all this time. She must have come prepared. She intentionally made sure that everything was in place to ensure there would be no trace left behind.
After hearing these words, Benjamin’s mood was once again greatly affected, and his crimson eyes sent shivers down people’s spines.
“So, this is your great accomplishment?”
Benjamin implied that Leslie was not competent. If Leslie couldn’t even handle such a
simple case, how could Benjamin be happy?
Leslie himself felt deeply remorseful and apologetic. “Boss, I should have done better. I am sorry. But it’s alright. The living things on earth will inevitably leave behind some traces.
“So far, I have found some leads and preliminarily narrowed down the target city where
Miss Martinez is located.
“Next, we will try to seal off this city as much as possible and quickly gather more.
reliable information. Please give me another chance, Boss.”
Benjamin didn’t like these explanations. All he wanted was the result, and now he asked with an impolite tone, “How long will it take?”
Leslie thought for a moment and replied, “About a week or so. I will dispatch people to
search as soon as possible.”
However, Benjamin had lost his patience. Without even lifting his head, he issued the final command, “I’ll give you two days. Bring her back at any cost. If you can’t resolve it within two days, don’t bother coming back.”
Leslie’s heart raced with fear, fully aware of the gravity of those words. It was a clear indication that the boss was extremely angry and determined to retrieve Martina at any
Their means and methods were abundant, but they had been hesitant to act too overtly
due to Martina’s identity.
However, with Benjamin’s words, they no longer needed to have any reservations. From now on, things would become increasingly serious and challenging.
Leslie just hoped that the search for Miss Martinez went smoothly; otherwise, it would
Even though Leslie felt slighted by Benjamin’s treatment, he didn’t dare to show his anger. Despite knowing that this task was challenging, he still agreed, “Yes, I will not let your
Benjamin impatiently waved his hand and said, “Just leave.”
He then looked at a photo on his desk, gently touching it with his fingertips. The
woman’s face in the photo seemed to come alive under his touch.
It was a photo he had redeveloped, the only picture of him and Martina together. Martina had a radiant smile and a sincere gaze in the photo, as if she possessed the most precious thing in his life.
But this most precious woman had truly disappeared, and Benjamin could no longer
The thought of not finding Martina within the next two days sent shivers down Simon’s spine. The potential consequences were unfathomable, and they couldn’t begin to imagine
what their boss might do in such a situation!
It could potentially be a disaster for the entire city, and no one could quell the boss’s
fury, except perhaps Martina.
Walking out alongside Leslie, Simon uttered quietly in his heart, “Miss Martinez, if you still hold concern for everyone, I implore you to return, even if only for a brief moment, just
to make your presence known.
“If you vanish again, it will likely unleash a hellish disaster, dooming everyone in its
In Simon’s view, Benjamin’s complete fury would be a disaster to Martina too.
Unfortunately, he was just a small assistant and couldn’t make decisions on behalf of
Otherwise, he would definitely inform the boss that such a forceful approach should not
The current Miss Martinez was no longer the same as the Miss Martinez who was willing to be a subordinate.
Using such an aggressive approach would only increase her resistance and likely have the opposite effect.
In the end, not only would they fail to bring her back, but the situation might also.
These thoughts could only be kept hidden in Simon’s heart. Anyone who dared to say something the boss doesn’t want to hear was likely to be on the brink of death.
Even Rihanna realized it. After hearing about Benjamin’s decision, she could only silently. disagree him. “The boss truly cares, but he’s causing chaos. With his current approach, isn’t. he pushing Miss Martinez further away?”
There was no way around it, Benjamin is actually a blunt and stubborn man. He also didn’t have much experience in love.
For example, he could be certain that he really wanted to see Martina. However, he had no idea how to improve their relationship and interactions.
As a result, his initial intention of bringing Martina back turned into pressuring her to leave home, even causing her to disappear for such a long time.
Rihanna also didn’t know how to help in such matters. “Well, maybe it will be fine ast long as Miss Martinez comes back. The means by which she returns is not important.”
