“Yes, Old Master Mallory.” Mr. Bennett looked down and answered, but he secretly thought that it was still a little difficult to find out where Pierre was.Pierre knew too many scumbags. Besides, there were a few hiding places for him to hide. They might not be able to find him at all.However, when Mr. Bennett saw how desperate Old Master Mallory was to find Pierre and seeing that he had no other instructions, he asked in a low voice, “Old Master Mallory, is there anything else I need to do?”Old Master Mallory replied with a long face, “No, you may leave.”“Okay, Old Master Mallory. Call me if you need anything.” Mr. Bennett looked down and left the room.After leaving Old Master Mallory's bedroom, Mr. Bennett picked up his phone and did what he was told. He informed those men to continue looking for Pierre. Mr. Bennett did think that Pierre might be hiding in one of his friends’ places. That was why he sent some of the men there.However, it was not that easy to find out whe
“Don’t let her have the chance to tell others about this.” Pierre knew what Oswald was thinking about. He did not think of stopping him.Now, Ms. Malone already knew about Pierre's secret. There was no way he would let her go. This was to prevent her from telling the police that he was here.Ms. Malone could not be trusted. She was not one of his trustworthy subordinates. “Got it, Mr. Pierre.” Oswald handed another plastic bag to Pierre and said, “Mr. Pierre, this is the cash we found at the finance department in your office. Look…”“Take it. I’m staying at your place now, and I’ll be having my meals here. I’ll leave everything to you to arrange. I can’t turn on my phone at the moment, and I can’t use my credit cards either. I’ll need you to pay for me.” After that, Pierre lay down on the sofa.Oswald responded, “Okay, Mr. Pierre. I’ll ask someone to clean up a room for you. I’ll make sure the room’s clean and tidy so that you can have a comfortable stay.”Pierre waved his hand
Vivian’s face reddened as she felt embarrassed for receiving such a compliment from Luca. She said, “Hey, you’re exaggerating it. How am I pretty with these looks…”“Beauty is confidence. Come on. Stand up straight. Be confident.” Luca patted Vivian’s shoulders, signaling her to stand tall.Vivian stood straight.“Vivian, did you realize your skin condition has improved after coming to A City…” Luca sized her up and suddenly said this to her.Vivian touched her face and asked, “Is that so? It’s probably because I have makeup on.”“No. I’m looking at the skin on your neck and hands.” Luca pointed at Vivian’s neck. Vivian had not put on her scarf since they were not going out yet. She could see that Vivian’s skin was fairer and more hydrated than before."Really? I didn't notice that." Vivian stood in the foyer and looked at herself in the mirror for some time. Still, she did not notice that her skin had become fairer. “You’ve been looking at yourself in the mirror all day. Of c
"My friend will contact me if anything happens. Don't worry about it." Luca pushed the dormitory's door open and walked into it arm-in-arm with Vivian.It was a twin dormitory room for postgraduate students.Vivian’s roommate had yet to arrive.Luca closed the door behind them without bothering about how awkward the expression on the male student's face was.Vivian smiled and said, “He has a thing for you!”“Is that even considered as having feelings for me?” Luca frowned and refuted, “He only wants me to be one of his backups.”“You’re pretty,” said Vivian. Luca carried her years well. Hence, it was normal for guys to be interested in her. “I’m getting on in years,” replied Luca. At the same time, she secretly muttered that she was also a mother of four kids."You look like a college student. That's why he's interested in you. It's understandable," said Vivian as she looked at the bunk bed in the dormitory. She was a little worried that her head would hit the ceiling when she
“I’m married, and I have kids.” What the male student said to her had already caught the attention of some students in the cafeteria. Luca felt awkward.The male student widened his eyes. He shook his head, refusing to believe what Luca said. “How’s that possible? You look so young. How could it be?”“Thank you for your compliment. But I’m married and I do have kids. Besides, I’ve been working for quite a long time. I’m not a student. My friend can testify for me.” Luca grabbed Vivian’s arm.The male student turned to look at Vivian, seeking proof.Vivian nodded and spoke in English with a stammer, “Yes. I can vouch for her. What she said is true.”The expression on the male student’s face changed. He dared not believe that the young woman in front of him was not a student and that she was married with children…The people around them were looking at him. Some of them were his classmates. The male student felt ashamed. He was in a hurry to save his dignity and said, “The universi
“Ms. Craw, have some tea.” The caretaker handed Luca a cup of warm tea.“Thank you.” Luca sat on the sofa, looking at the couple. They looked fine, and they did not look unwell.“Mr. Norman, Mrs. Norman, how do you feel today?” Luca asked caringly.“Great. We don’t feel dizzy anymore. Don’t worry.” Jack knew Luca was worried about them, so he quickly comforted her.“Glad to hear that. Did the doctor say anything?” Luca asked and turned to look at the caretaker at the same time.The caretaker replied, “The doctor gave Mr. and Mrs. Norman thorough physical examinations. The results are good. There’s no internal bleeding in the brain, and their bodies function well. It’s just that there are some bruises. They’ll be fine after resting for a while. It’s a fortune in misfortune.”Luca nodded. Jack and Queenie were not seriously injured because of the incident. It could have been worse.Then, Luca said, “Mr. Norman, Mrs. Norman, you’ll be able to get well soon.”“Yes. I think so too.
Leia's current behavior was a pain in the neck. The hospital was planning to improve the security of the VIP floor. The head nurse had complained to Jack before. Even the most difficult news reporter she met was not as difficult as Leia. The security guards and nurses on duty dared not to take her lightly. They were worried that they would accidentally let Leia slip into the ward.Johann even said that they would include Leia’s name in the hospital’s blacklist if they could.Queenie heaved a sigh and said, “That’s true…”Luca listened to their conversation. She suddenly felt sorry for them. Leia had gone over the top and done so many bad things. She did not deserve Queenie’s love! “Come on, stop sighing. She’s not young anymore. Besides, she gets an allowance every month. She’ll be fine.” Jack comforted her. Was Leia’s health not the reason why Queenie wanted to go home so badly? They could not let Leia know their condition now. That was why they could only stay in the h
Queenie could not help but wonder when she saw Jack’s attitude. “Aren’t you fond of Luca? What’s with your reaction now that I’m suggesting her becoming our god-daughter?”“Perhaps Luca won’t want to? Besides, Leia gets jealous easily. If we acknowledge Luca as our god-daughter, what will she think?” Jack immediately brought up the subject of Leia getting jealous when he noticed Queenie’s intentions.Queenie fell silent when he mentioned Leia.If they really acknowledged Luca as their god-daughter, Leia would be jealous of Luca judging from her personality.Queenie shook her head and said, “Forget about it.”It set Jack’s mind at ease when Queenie gave up on the idea. After all, Luca was their biological daughter. There was no need to acknowledge her as their god-daughter.“I didn’t know you still cared about Leia.” Queenie heaved a sigh.Jack was stunned for a moment. He was overwhelmed with complicated feelings for a minute or two.He initially thought of making an excuse for
