Chapter 1345

In any case, when the allotted time had passed, Harry and Grayson would be brought before the judge,
and they would no longer be able to escape. Furthermore, it would still not be tardy for them to appear
in court. After Lynette’s second trial, they would likely make court appearance arrangements for the
father and son. After all, everyone in the Lore Family was a criminal; the higher-ups became enraged
and wanted to wipe out the family as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, Toby’s subordinates broke the news to Grayson that Lynette had been given a death
sentence, but Toby had no intention of telling Harry. After all, Harry was an elderly man, and if he found
out what her granddaughter’s verdict was, he might not be able to take the news and pass out, which
would result in his death.

However, death wasn’t necessarily good news, but it would be a relief for him to avoid serving his
sentence. Hence, those seeking justice for Professor Randall would be aggrieved because Harry’s
sudden death without any due punishment could not be viewed as retribution for Professor Randall.
Consequently, Toby chose not to inform Harry.

On the other hand, Harry most likely was aware of what was in store for him, and he had been making
a fuss about seeing Toby because he had something to tell him. However, Toby had no intention of
seeing him. Even if he wanted to, Sonia would not permit it.

With his current state of health, Toby couldn’t even take one step out of the hospital. So, how was he
supposed to meet Harry? In addition, Harry was a criminal, so what difference did it make if Toby met
him or not? Even if Harry had something to say, what importance could it have? At most, he would
plead for Toby to rescue him.

That was what Toby thought, and coupled with his complex hatred for Harry, he promptly declined
when Tom told him that Harry wanted to see him. Regardless, Harry was tenacious, and even though
Toby refused to see him, he insisted on trying his luck every day. He persisted for three days before
giving up when he realized Toby would not meet him.

Soon, another week passed in a blink of an eye. Sonia decided to return to work at Paradigm. After all,
she had been away from Paradigm for too long. Although Rita would report to her about work daily,
working remotely wasn’t as efficient as direct management.

The reason why she made such a decision was that Toby was recovering. Moreover, he could sit
straight and could handle the documents brought by Tom for an hour or two every day instead of lying
in the hospital bed all day long.

Moreover, Toby was aware that Paradigm was still in its early stages of development. Therefore, Sonia
was required to manage company affairs, particularly the factory fire that had yet to be investigated.

She had to return to Paradigm and hold a meeting to give the shareholders and senior management an
answer on the follow-ups for the plant. After all, the plant was burned down. Even though they had
regrouped the bricklayers, construction team, and plumbers, they still had to discuss the next operation
date.

When Toby heard her proposal to return to work, he agreed quickly, even though he was reluctant to let
her go. Sonia assured him that she would visit him every night after work, and they would still be
together every day, so he saw no reason to reject her. So, on that particular day, she bid farewell to
him, left the hospital, and returned to Paradigm.

Learning that she was returning to work, Rita told the company to hold a small welcome ceremony.
Even though the ceremony was modest and straightforward, Sonia was grateful for them. The fact that
her employees held a welcome ceremony spontaneously showed how much they cherished their boss.

“Thank you so much, everyone.” After thanking everyone happily, Sonia dismissed them so they could
return to their posts, carrying a bouquet in her arms

At that moment, someone was in her office. The man was sitting behind her desk with his head lowered
as he processed some documents. Hearing the sound of the door opening, the man raised his head,
revealing a handsome face. He turned out to be Charles Lane.

“You’re back.” Seeing Sonia coming in with flowers in her arms, he put down his pen, got up, and
walked over to greet her with a smile.

Then, she nodded and said, “Yeah. I’m finally back. Thanks for handling the work for me, Charles.”

If she had not temporarily delegated management of Paradigm to Charles, she would have returned to
a mountain of work. Even in the hospital, she would not be able to care for Toby with peace of mind, as
she would have to care for him daily while taking calls from Rita.

She was grateful to Charles because, during that time, she could relax without being disturbed. So,
when she returned, she was not greeted with any overwhelming work that needed to be completed.

“Nah. It’s just a small matter. Lane Corporation has recently undergone a reformation, so I have lots of
free time to help you manage the company. Treat it as me trying to fill up my boredom.” Then, he
poured her a glass of water and continued, “What about you? You’ve been away for quite a long time,

haven’t you?”

Sonia grabbed the glass and sat down on the couch. At that moment, she was parched, so she took a
sip of water before responding, “Yeah. I just went with Toby to gain some knowledge. I didn’t expect it
would take so long.”

“It’s all good now that you’re back. So, how was the trip?” Charles sat down opposite her and asked.

She put down the water glass, her eyes flickered, and she replied casually, “Not bad. It was an eye-
opener.”

“Sounds great. It is useful for your future management of Paradigm.”

“Yeap.” Sonia nodded.

Charles looked at her and asked, “By the way, why didn’t you tell me in advance that you were coming
back? I could’ve picked you up at the airport, but you suddenly returned. I didn’t even know you were
back until this morning. You seem to be in good spirits, though. Aren’t you jet-lagged?”

Then, she lowered her eyelids guiltily and responded, “No, I’ve been back for two days. I suffered from
jet lag for a day or two, but I’m feeling refreshed and don’t feel exhausted. I didn’t tell you I was
returning because I knew you would insist on picking me up, but I didn’t want to bother you too much,
so I chose to keep my return a secret.”

“I see.” He nodded, but he didn’t doubt her. “What about Toby? Is he back too?”

“Nope.” She shook her head and said, “He’s going to stay there a little longer.”

“Pfft.” Charles pursed his lips in disdain. “Did that brat willingly let you come home alone? I thought
he’d stick to you like gum and return to the country with you. I’m surprised that he’s still abroad, though.
Seems like there’s nothing to shout about him, after all.”

Sonia chuckled. “Well, he was quite reluctant to send me off, but he knows that I value Paradigm, so he
respects me and lets me return.”

She found Toby cute at the thought of him being unwilling to part with her this morning, looking as if he
had been abandoned but he had suppressed his intentions to stop her from leaving.

Seeing her expression, Charles knew that she must be imagining Toby’s face again, so he couldn’t help
but roll his eyes. “Okay, that’s enough. My eyes hurt looking at you all smitten over him. Since you have
returned, I will hand over responsibility for the company to you and return to my place.”

Following that, he left to tidy his stuff.

Sonia got up and followed behind him, remembering what the detective had told her. Hence, she parted
her lips and hesitated to speak. She wanted to ask him straightforwardly if he locked Daphne up and
what he was up to. Still, when the words came to her lips, she couldn’t ask any questions. She didn’t
know how to word it, fearing that he would be enraged if she asked.

Seemingly sensing something wrong with her behind him, Charles turned around just in time to see her
biting her lip. Thus, he asked in puzzlement, “What’s wrong?”

Suddenly, she squeezed out a smile and uttered, “Charles, you—”

“Yeah?” He waited for her to say something.

Sonia took a deep breath and continued, “Well, I wanted to ask you something. Did you—”

Before she could finish her sentence, however, his phone rang.
