Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2263
“I… Don’t know…” muttered Aiden, clearly conflicted about the whole matter. While he wasn’t sure if he really liked her, he did feel great unease the second his superior told him that Lindsay had gone missing. After all, his first reaction was to update Gerald about this despite the ungodly hour!
“If that’s the case, remind your superiors that you’re currently on vacation and tell them to send someone else to save her. If you’re not serious about her, then stay with me. I’ll need all the help I can get,” replied Gerald as he looked out the window.
“But… Miss Lawrence could be in danger…” said Aiden.

While he would normally prioritize Gerald, the thought that Lindsay was locked up by the Grubbs was making him hesitate. However, Aiden was also worried that if he rushed over, he could potentially ruin things.
“Hmm? Didn’t you say you disliked her?” replied Gerald with a laugh. Gerald, for one, knew Aiden well enough to know that if he didn’t care about Lindsay, he wouldn’t have come running over to tell him about this in the first place. Hell, if that really was the case, he would’ve probably rejected his superior’s orders the second he got them!
Upon hearing that, Aiden went silent for a moment before eventually saying, “… Alright, I’ve made up my mind. Let’s save her.”
“Well said. We’ll focus on rescuing Miss Lawrence first, then,” replied Gerald with a nod.
While saving his family was important, Gerald knew that Lindsay’s rescue had to be prioritized. After all, he was well aware of what kinds of people were in the Grubb family. With that said, if she truly had been captured by them, then any delays would surely result in her either getting hurt or defiled.
Should that come to be, then Aiden would definitely be brimming with self reproach, and Gerald really didn’t want to see his good friend drowning in such grief.
“Thank you, Gerald…” said Aiden, pleased that Gerald was willing to help.
Shaking his head, Gerald simply replied, “There’s no need for that. Either way, did your superior provide any hint as to where she could be?”
Though he hadn’t said it, Gerald had been keeping tabs with all the times Aiden had remained by his side to help him. With that in mind, now that Aiden needed his help, Gerald was definitely going to lend his aid. Regardless, Aiden then shook his head before saying, “Unfortunately, no. He just told me that Miss Lawrence went missing in Yanam, and that the Lawrences provided no useful information about all this…”
“I see… Well, either she was captured by the Grubbs, or she may not be in Yanam at all,” replied Gerald as he narrowed his eyes.
“That’s what I’m thinking as well,” muttered Aiden with a sigh.
“Then let’s start the investigation at the Grubb family’s manor,” replied Gerald in a helpless tone. Since he had killed Frey back then, nobody else in the Grubb family should have ulterior motives against Lindsay. Though that was the case, they really didn’t have any other leads at the moment, so they may as well inquire the Grubbs about this first.
“And the ancient ruins…?” asked Aiden, feeling slightly embarrassed for causing Gerald’s goals to be delayed.
“Let’s save Miss Lawrence first,” replied Gerald with a slight wave of his hand.
With their minds made up, the duo then immediately left the hotel. On their way out, Gerald made sure to send a text message to Master Ghost, explaining the gist of where he and Aiden were off to. Aside from telling him to relay the message to Fujiko and Jobson, Gerald also stated that they would return immediately if they managed to save Lindsay.
