No one else noticed that there was a rhodium ring around the eagle’s leg.
That ring was Charlotte and Zachary’s wedding ring.
Perhaps no one else noticed that when the eagle swooped towards Robbie, a whistle could be heard. Right after, the eagle stopped and hovered in front of him.
He was posed at just the right angle to notice the ring.
At that moment, Robbie had felt a mixture of terror and astonishment.
After the incident, everyone was busy trying to handle the aftermath. Yet Robbie was consumed with thoughts about the ring.
He was not stricken by fear nor traumatized. He was just thinking about how his mother’s ring ended up on the eagle.
What’s going on?
That eagle belongs to the owner of Northridge. If I find out who he is, I’ll be able to follow the trail to Mommy.
Thus, Robbie released a mechanical dove and sent it to spy on the owner of Northridge.
At that moment, the mechanical dove flew higher and further.
Suddenly, someone knocked on the door. Raina’s gentle voice drifted in, “Are you there, Robbie?”
Robbie knew it would take some time for the dove to reach its destination. Thus, he went to open the door. “What’s up, Dr. Langhan?”
“Can we chat, Robbie?” Raina squatted and gazed at him kindly. “I know you must have been frightened just now. You’re just trying to put on a brave front…”
“I think you’ve misunderstood,” said Robbie as he interrupted Raina. His tone was level and calm. “I was a bit scared just now, but I’m fine now. I’m just busy with my own stuff. I’m not trying to avoid anything, so you don’t need to be worried.”
Raina smiled awkwardly. “I’m glad you’re fine.”
“Thank you!” Robbie politely replied. “Is there anything else?”
“No.” Raina hurriedly shook her head. “I’ll let you get back to what you were doing.”
“Thank you for taking care of Jamie and Ellie!”
Robbie bowed courteously and closed the door.
Raina felt rather vexed, but she had no choice but to return to Jamie and Ellie.
After that, Robbie walked up to the computer and continued tracking the mechanical dove. It was currently flying towards Northridge.
The camera on the mechanical dove recorded everything below it clearly and sent the footage to Robbie.
Robbie anxiously stared at the computer screen as he waited for the mechanical dove to reveal the answer he was searching for.
At this moment, someone knocked on his door again.
Robbie frowned in annoyance. “Who is it?”
“Robbie, I asked the kitchen staff to prepare some breakfast. Let’s go eat together,” said Henry gently.
Jamie and Ellie’s voices followed.
“Did they really make hot cross bunnies, Great-grandpa?” Jamie asked excitedly.
“They did. I tasked Mrs. Rawlston to learn how to make them. Go eat them now and tell me how they taste,” replied Henry with a grin.
“Yay, that’s great,” cheered Jamie as he ran downstairs.
“Where’s Robbie?” asked Ellie.
“I’m calling him out now.” Henry lovingly patted her head. “Go on. We’ll join you soon.”
“Okay, I’ll go look for Fifi.”
Ellie skipped downstairs.
In the room, Robbie stared unblinkingly at the screen. The pigeon had arrived at Northridge and was nearing the villa. He did not want to miss seeing the truth, but they were waiting for him outside. Thus, he had no choice but to open the door.
“Great-grandpa, I’m not hungry yet. You guys can start without me.”
Robbie turned back to the computer. At that moment, his heart was pounding at a breakneck pace. If he was delayed any longer, he would miss his opportunity.
“Robbie, I want to talk to you…”
“I don’t want to talk now,” blurted Robbie.
Henry froze, and his gaze darkened.
Robbie realized how rude he was acting and immediately apologized. “I’m sorry. I’m just… really busy. Please start breakfast without me.”
