Chapter 261 Press Conference (Part Two) 

As soon as Joey finished his words, he lifted the quilt and was about to get out of bed. Seeing this, Victor’s eyes darkened. He frowned and ordered, “Lie down.” “…… Okay.” Joey was taken aback by his sudden order. He looked at Victor’s frown, pouted and withdrew his feet into the quilt. Lukas coughed and tucked him in. He asked gently, “Joe, do you feel uncomfortable anywhere?”

Grabbing the edge of the quilt, Joey looked at Victor who was standing not far away and said nothing Noticing that he was looking at him, Victor’s eyes darkened. “Lukas, call the doctor over.” “Okay, I’ll go now.” Lukas glanced at Joey and then looked at Victor. Thinking of the words that Joey suddenly said just now, he immediately understood that they should have something to say to each other. Then Lukas left the room. As soon as the door was closed, Joey couldn’t wait to sit up. “I want…” “I don’t like to repeat my words.” Victor’s eyes fell on Joey, and he interrupted him harshly, “Cover yourself with the quilt.” Joey pouted and lay down again. Victor walked to the bedside, tucked him in, and put the back of his hand on his forehead. Probably because he had been sweating, his forehead was a little cold. “Do you want some water?” Victor withdrew his hand and asked. Joey shook his head. His lips moved. When he was about to say something, Victor asked, “Are you hungry?” “…… I’m not hungry.” “I’ll ask the chef to cook you some porridge. After that, take the medicine.” Then Victor stood up and was about to leave. Seeing that he didn’t want to talk about the press conference with him at all, Joey was anxious and immediately reached out to pull the corner of his clothes. Victor felt it. He looked down at Joey’s tightly clenched hands, and after a moment of silence, he asked in a deep voice, “Do you want to go?” “Yeah.” Joey nodded heavily. “Why?”

“Because… ” Joey’s said. He pursed his thin lips, and the words that Maria had told him in the afternoon came to his mind again.

She said to him, “If you don’t believe what I have shown you, you can see it 101 yourself at the press conference tomorrow.” “Press conference?” “I know you are smart, but do you really think you can hide your identity from Victor? Let me tell you. He has already suspected your identity and asked his men to investigate you.” When he heard this, Joey didn’t show any surprise. On the contrary, it would surprise him if Victor didn’t suspect him at all. Because he was very clear that someone would suspect who he really was once he saw his face, “So, what does it have to do with the press conference tomorrow?” Seeing that he was calm, Maria was stunned for a moment, but soon she smiled and continued, “My son is dead. As the current leader of the Sullivan Group, Victor would have to announce the news and the reporters would question him. I have already received the news that he will not only announce my son’s death, but also show something to the public. He will show them some evidences, which are aimed at accusing my son of dereliction of duty and corruption when he was alive. Victor wants to do this in order to keep the shareholders rest assured. If you don’t believe me, you can see what he will say tomorrowWe can make a deal.” “What deal?”

“I can find a way to dispel his doubts about your identity. For example… Be my son’s child.” With a frown, Joey didn’t say anything. “But you have to attend the press conference tomorrow and testify against him after he reveals your identity.” All of a sudden, Joey came back to reality from his thoughts. He looked into Victor’s eyes and clenched his hands. “Because… ” After a pause, he continued, “Mr. Smith just said that if I went with you, the media wouldn’t make things difficult for you, so… So I want to go. I want to help you.” As soon as he finished speaking, he raised his head slightly and looked at Victor. He also wanted to know whether what Maria said was true or not.
