Charlotte swiftly asked Robbie to explain what was going on.
“Some mysterious men came to ask me about the chip today, and I was confused by their questions. I only found out that they thought it was Jamie after seeing the surveillance footage.”
Robbie then told what had happened to him in detail to the others.
Charlotte was in disbelief. She never thought the chip Jamie was talking about was real, and it was actually the chip Divine Corporation had lost.
“Wow. So that chip has all the secrets of their new technology. No wonder they’re all fighting over it.”
Jamie felt as though he had done something incredulous, so he grinned and rather pleased. “I’ve done great protecting the chip for so long.”
“What do you mean? You led the wolves into the sheep’s pen.” Robbie’s brows were knitted as he reprimanded, “You don’t even know that man in black, so you shouldn’t have taken his things. We’re lucky that nothing happened to us today. What are we to do if anything happens to you and Ellie?”
“I didn’t even react until he shoved the thing into my pocket.” Jamie pouted, unhappy with his brother’s words. “Also, I told you Fifi swallowed the chip, but none of you believe me.”
“This is my fault. Mommy didn’t think it’d be such a grave matter,” Charlotte apologized to Jamie. “If Mommy were to pay more attention to it, something like this wouldn’t have happened.”
“The bad guy has already stolen the chip, and the people from Divine Corporation are going after him. This has nothing to do with us anymore,” Robbie concluded with his head tilted to the side.
“Not necessarily,” Mrs. Berry abruptly mumbled.
“Why?” Charlotte cast confused a look on her.
Mrs. Berry then walked to the doorway to look around, making sure there was no one near their house before she hurriedly shut the door. It was only then she returned and whispered to them, “The chip isn’t in the box.”
“What?” Everyone was now staring at her in surprise. “The chip isn’t inside? What is inside then?”
“It’s…” Mrs. Berry trailed off as she looked at Fifi in Ellie’s arms.
Fifi buried its head under its wing, seemingly embarrassed.
“Mr. Nacht, Tigris ran off with the chip. We’re after him right now,” Ben reported as he brought his men to pursue Tigris.
“You rubbish!” Zachary roared, “If you can’t retrieve the chip, don’t come back.”
“Yes, Mr. Nacht.” With a wave, Ben commanded to the bodyguards, “Even if we die tonight, we have to get the chip back.”
“We’ll get it back even if we die!”
The Nacht family’s bodyguards continued tracking him and setting up traps.
Tigris’ escape was tough. Several times, the grim reaper was close to taking him away.
However, no matter how difficult it was, Tigris continued. He held tight to his goal—to give the chip to the person who hired him.
The moment he succeeded, he would get a hundred million. He and his brother would not need to worry about their finances for the rest of their lives.
At two in the morning, Ben led his subordinates and cornered Tigris at Southcastle Shore.
Multiple spotlights, as well as guns, were aimed at Tigris.
The second he resisted, he would gain numerous unwanted holes in his body.
Ben bellowed, “Tigris, give us the chip, and we’ll let you go.”
In the face of danger, Tigris decided he would take the risk of swallowing the chip and leaping into the sea.
With that thought in mind, he took out the silver box and hurriedly pulled off the pink ribbon. He then opened the box to take out the chip.
But he froze when he saw the content.
At that moment, his expression changed from a dumbfounded one to shock before his facial features twisted. His lips twitched, and his eyes teared up.
Jamie’s cheeky face surfaced in his mind.
Tigris growled under his breath before he cursed out loud, “Damn it. His entire family is a bunch of devils!”
