All Her Secrets Chapter 876 by Chestnut

Chapter 876 Not the Right Time

“What did you say?” Zobber was so shocked after receiving the news. She jumped straight up from the sofa.

If it weren’t for Withal’s quick avoidance, she would have already bumped into Withal at the moment.

Withal narrowly dodged and then reached out to pat himself on the chest lightly to show how scared he was. 11 Will you calm down? I almost got killed by you.”

Despite Withal’s strong dissuasion, Zobber was agitated at the moment.

She was unable to calm down at all and directly shouted angrily at Withal, ” How can I be calm? Ronin has started working for that bastard scum. He even attacked the Duncan Corporation. This traitor, he better not be caught by me.

As long as he falls into my hands, I’ll definitely make him suffer.”

Watching her grit her teeth, Withal felt

a bit flustered.

“If I were the one who angered her, would I end up in the same miserable state?” thought Withal in panic.

Fortunately, he wasn’t the one who made the mistake now.

Zobber was so angry that she was about to explode. Seeing no response from Withal, she was extremely angry. She stepped aside to pick up her jacket and headed for the door.

Seeing her going out the door, Withal reacted. “Where are you going?”

“I’m going to Catherine,” Zobber said without looking back. She was in a rage right now, and things could easily go wrong when people weren’t being rational.

Worried that something might happen to Zobber, Withal rushed to follow after her. He couldn’t stop her, but he could follow her to prevent her from doing anything impulsive.

Halfway through, Zobber contacted Catherine. Knowing that Catherine was not at the school, but at her apartment, Zobber and Withal immediately drove to her apartment.

After ringing the doorbell, Catherine soon came and opened the door. “Why is the rush?”

Seeing that she still looked like she was in the dark, Zobber was going crazy with anxiety. “Catherine, something big has happened.”

In the face of Zobber’s anxiety, Catherine calmly walked to the side and sat down. “Let’s have a seat and talk about it. As long as it’s not the end of the world, it’s not a big deal.”

Zobber admired Catherine’s calmness. She might not be able to learn Catherine’s calmness in her lifetime. Catherine, do you know what Ronin has done?”

Zobber then told the story of Ronin’s theft of information from the Duncan Corporation. The more she spoke, the angrier she became, and she lifted her foot to kick hard on a side chair.

The loud noise made Catherine glance at the side coffee table and then say coldly, “That was bought for over two hundred thousand dollars. I’ll deduct it from your next month’s salary.”

The Hacker Alliance paid monthly salaries to its members, which were their rewards and honorariums for doing missions.

Zobber repeated in her mind, “Over two hundred thousand dollars?” Glancing at the ordinary, broken coffee table, she couldn’t really see how it could be worth that much.

She was about to complain when it occurred to her that this was Branden’s apartment.

Branden did have money, and it wasn’t uncommon in his place even if he used gold to build a door.

What Zobber didn’t know was that she had been distracted by Catherine. Zobber was not aware of this, but Withal on the side knew it better than anyone else.

He silently gave Catherine a thumbs- up in his mind. Only Catherine could suppress Zobber’s anger without a trace.

Zobber pondered for a while before she reacted and turned back to Catherine. ” Catherine, let’s continue with the previous topic. Now that Ronin is openly against us and attacked the Duncan Corporation, what do you think we should do?”

“Have you checked thoroughly? Are you sure it’s him?” asked Catherine.

Zobber nodded without hesitation. “I personally verified it.”

When Zobber first heard the news, she didn’t believe it, and only after she personally verified it, she was sure that it was Ronin who did it.

Catherine was silent for a moment and then said slowly, “Find him. I want to ask him myself.”

Zobber was about to speak but was cut off by Withal. “Catherine is right. No matter how wrong he is, we have to give him a chance to confess and defend himself. We’ve known each other for so many years, can you really put your hands on him?”

These words froze Zobber. She wasn’t sure if she could be as tough as she just said if Ronin really fell into her hands.

Although she was not forgiving on the surface, she was angry only because she had been let down.

Catherine wasn’t the only one who treated Ronin as her younger brother. Zobber had known Ronin for years, and they had gone through life and death several times. In her heart, Ronin, who was two years younger, was no different from her younger brother.

“Okay, I’ll listen to you then. Let’s find him first. I must ask for an explanation. “Zobber said viciously, “If he dares to lie, I’ll punish him personally.”

The topic about Ronin came to an end, and Withal remembered another thing. “Catherine, did Wantel contact you?”

“No,” Catherine responded with one simple word.

Withal thought to himself, “That’s strange. It’s been so long and Wantel hasn’t responded at all. And Catherine isn’t in a hurry even after hearing the news. Is there something else going on there that I don’t know about?”

Withal quietly surveyed Catherine. The expression on her face hadn’t changed from the beginning to the end, leaving him unable to find any clues.

Catherine had always been mysterious, and there was no way anyone could get her to talk about anything she didn’t want to.

On this point, Withal knew it very well, so he did not continue to think about it. He silently gave up the idea.

Catherine was a bit tired. She was supposed to rest at home today, but she didn’t expect Zobber to come suddenly.

She was ready to drive them out. ” Alright, you guys go and get on your business. Let me know the first time you hear from Ronin.”

“Catherine, you look a bit tired. Are you okay?” Zobber couldn’t help but ask when she saw Catherine’s pale face.

Catherine nodded. “I’m fine. I’ve been catching up on experiments for the past few days and didn’t rest enough. I’ll just take a nap later.”

They all knew that Catherine had hypoglycemia and had once been injured and never recovered.

She had been rushing her experiments in the recent period, relying on her perseverance to hold on. No wonder she looked so pale.

Seeing her like this, Zobber was a little distressed. She became a little chagrined in her heart because of her impulsiveness.

She felt that she shouldn’t disturb Catherine with these things.

She frowned and looked at Catherine, her eyes full of care. “Catherine, if you can get Rodge and Scott to experiment, leave it to them. Don’t make yourself so tired.”

“Uh-huh.” Catherine nodded faintly and sent the two away.

The moment the door closed, Catherine curled up her lips. She rested her hand gently on her belly and let out a sigh. ” You’ve come at a bit of a bad time. Are you coming to go against me? Hope everything will be fine.”

Catherine Swann, a simple countryside girl, was having a leisurely and carefree life in the countryside. She thought she could have a happy life there for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, life had other plans for her. Her grandfather left a will for her, making her the inheritor of the Swanns’ billion-dollar fortune. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, he also arranged a marriage for her.

Branden Duncan, the only heir of the wealthiest family in Casier, was the dream prince charming of almost all the women in Casier. But Catherine turned him down in public. Instead of being angry about it, he was attracted by Catherine's cold eyes.Although Catherine seemed to be a girl with a simple life in the countryside, she was not simple. What kind of identity did she have? How would she deal with her unexpected fiancé and the opposition from the rest of the Swanns to her inheritance of the Swanns’ fortune?

Chapter 1 Return of the Jinx At Vicente Swann's funeral. As the Swanns were one of the three prominent families in Casier, Vicente's funeral was naturally packed with big shots and members of respected families in Casier. In the noisy venue, the arrival of a girl in a white T-shirt attracted the attention of everyone present. All of the people present were either rich or powerful. Despite being good-looking, the girl wore a cheap and battered T-shirt, setting her apart from everyone else at the funeral. Seeing how she walked straight toward the Swanns family, someone couldn't help asking curiously, "Who is she? Why is she sitting with the Swanns?" "I heard that she is Miss Catherine, the second daughter of the Swanns that had lived away from the family. Vicente only asked her to come back before he died." "Is that so? I heard that Vicente ordered the family to announce his will in front of everyone before he died. I guess she only returned for this!" ... The girl did not know that she had already become the topic of the guests' discussions. She looked calmly ahead with an indifferent expression on her face. Her eyes remained focused on Vicente's portrait in the middle of the venue. Nobody knew what she was thinking about at the time. At the sight of Catherine Swann like this, Liana Swann, the youngest and favorite daughter of the Swanns, couldn't help complaining to her mother, who was sitting next to her. "Mom, what is going on with this country girl? Grandpa has died. Even if she isn't sad, she should at least pretend to cry. What would the others think if the media took a photo of her like this later? She wouldn't even change her clothes when we asked her to. People that don't know better would think that the Swanns have mistreated her!" After hearing her youngest daughter's complaints, Rachael Swann furrowed her brows too. She thought that her youngest daughter did have a point. She never loved Catherine, her daughter from the countryside, dearly. In fact, Catherine pissed Rachael off just one day after she had returned. However, it was not the right time for Rachael to handle Catherine now. She planned to wait until the funeral was over before sending Catherine back to the countryside so that Catherine wouldn't continue to embarrass the Swanns here. Looking up, Rachael saw that her husband had arrived. She comforted her youngest daughter in a low voice, "Liana, be good. Your father is here. Bear with Catherine for now. We need to deal with what is important first!" Liana couldn't show her annoyance towards Catherine in public, so she could only choke back the complaints on the tip of her tongue. Nobody noticed that Catherine, who had been looking straight ahead, smiled lightly. The Swanns never spent time with Catherine, so they wouldn't know she had exceptional hearing. Even though Rachael and Liana spoke in a low voice, Catherine clearly heard every word of their exchange. Her mother truly did not love her! As Catherine stared at Vicente's portrait, her eyes flashed with a faint trace of sadness. Did she have to cry because of pain? ... Korbin Swann walked up the stage slowly. He gave a long speech first and expressed his views about how great Vicente was before finally announcing that the family would publicly announce Vicente's will. As many people knew this beforehand, the crowd was not too surprised. Vicente had a son and daughter. It was a no-brainer who would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. However, nobody understood why Vicente would make sure to make such a fuss to announce his will publicly. Was it just for formality? The lawyer Vicente trusted the most when he was still alive opened the sealed will and read it out loud. "After careful consideration, I, Vicente Swann, leave all my shares of the Swann Corporation, real estate properties, and a 500 million-dollar deposit at the Bank of Nospines to my granddaughter, Catherine Swann..." At the lawyer's words, the crowd gasped in shock. Not even the Swanns, everyone present was dumbfounded. Catherine Swann? Wasn't she the second daughter of the Swanns, the jinx that Vicente sent off to be raised in the countryside when she was young? How could it be? She would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. With their jaws dropped, everyone shared a similar look of horror. Except for Catherine, the center of the discussion. She still looked indifferent, as though nothing had happened. Her eyes were still fixed on Vicente's portrait in the center of the hall. Her lips parted slightly as she spoke in an almost inaudible voice. "Old man, what were you thinking?"
