Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2289
“Maddox Chabert? Isn’t he the person in charge of the sea? How can he be related to this matter?” The butler was confused.
“You don’t know that when Gerald returned to Yanam, the war department knew about it at once. Maddox planned to directly exterminate Gerald at sea, but Carter refused it firmly. If Lindsay’s disappearance truly has something to do with him, he should be planning to use her to threaten Gerald.”
“In that case, Brother Lawrence should not know about this. Or, if he knows a little, he is unlikely to say it directly. After all, it’s the war department who is responsible. If he reports it, it will inevitably make things even bigger.”

Lucian smoked his cigarette as he analyzed things. “Then, we cannot just stand by and watch. Master, I think l should remind you of this. Although our family has a high position in Yanam, we cannot fall out with the war department because of Lindsay. That would be very bad for us.”
The butler was worried that Lucian might not consider this for the sake of his relationship with the Lawrence family. No matter how strong a family was, it was impossible for them to fight against the war department head on. It would be like hitting a stone
With an egg.
“Of course I know.” Lucian rolled his eyes.
“Then, what do you mean?” The butler continued.
“Nothing in particular. I will just let him continue keeping an eye on the war department and Maddox Chabert. As for the rest, we will wait for Gerald to return and discuss it with him before making a decision.” Lucian exhaled a puff of smoke and said coolly.
“This is indeed the best way.” The butler nodded in agreement.
“By the way, has there been any news about Frey?” Lucian raised his head and asked.
“Still nothing, Master. I suspect that the young master has already been killed…” The butler sighed and shook his head. “We’ve done everything we could, but…”
“Enough. Don’t say it.” Not waiting for the butler to finish his words, Lucian waved his hand.
He knew what it meant, but he was not willing to believe it. He was such an outstanding adopted son. How could he disappear overnight without even leaving a single clue?!
“Do you want to continue the investigation?” The butler paused and asked.
“Sigh. Let’s stop for now until after we settle the matter at hand.” Lucian let out a long sigh. When he said that, he felt as though his aura had diminished. He did not look like the head of a family at all. In fact, he looked more like an old man in the latter years of his life.
“Understood.” The butler nodded and stopped talking.
In the cave. Gerald was still searching for the secrets of the Seadom tribe kept here.
One whole day passed by in the blink of an eye. Although there was light coming in from the entrance of the cave, due to the heavy rain, the sky was dark. If he didn’t check his phone, he wouldn’t know if it was day or night.
The only sounds that could be heard vaguely were the sounds of the pouring rain and the occasional thunder.
“Not bad. You’ve searched one entire bookshelf in a day. I bet you will be able to find it in a week.”
The old man spent most of his time sitting cross legged on the stone bed, leaning against the wall as he looked at Gerald.
“Don’t make fun of me, Senior. Please help me out. I still have other matters to take care of, and I’m running out of time.” Gerald smiled bitterly. He rubbed his somewhat sore hand and spoke.
