Chapter 827After a pause, she responded to his previous question, "Yes, it's Alexis.""Did she ask you to tape the show with her?"Scarlett drank the rest of the water and nodded, "Yes, but I don't want to go.""You are right. You can't fool around."As Raymond said that, he lifted a lock of hair next to her cheek and pulled it to her ear. The weather in Juanton City in early October was not too cold. Both of them had just finished exercising. Scarlett didn't feel hot when she was sitting just now, but as soon as Raymond came over, she felt as if her whole body was in the hot air.On her forehead, the thin sweat that had just stopped began to seep again.She raised her hand and wiped it, "I'm going to take a shower."“Ok.” Answered Raymond, raising his head to drink the water left in the bottle.Scarlett glanced at him, stood up, and went upstairs.It was four o 'clock in the afternoon, and the sun outside the window was still very bright.The floor-to-ceiling windows
Chapter 828It was Scarlett's first official meeting with Raymond's aunt Yoselin, who didn't show up at their wedding last time because she had something else to do. Later, she didn't come to see Scarlett, probably because Raymond said something to her.Their meeting eight months ago was a little embarrassing because Scarlett thought Yoselin was Raymond’s new lover.Scarlett could tell that Yoselin was much more important to Raymond than Jean.Yoselin must have had a powerful impact on Raymond's life growing up.The appointed time was 6:30 in the evening, but it was 5:40 after they had showered. In case of being late, Scarlett put on light makeup and changed into a simple dress before going out with Raymond.It was the second day of the holiday, so the traffic in Juanton City was diabolical.Usually, they could reach the restaurant within half an hour, but the awful traffic stuck them for a long time.They finally got there at 6:37.The waiter told them that Yoselin was waiting
Chapter 829Scarlett realized Yoselin was looking at them and pushed Raymond away. The next moment, she looked over and saw Yoselin driving away with her boyfriend.Scarlett blushed as she watched the car drive away, "Yoselin was just saying goodbye to us.""I waved to her."Scarlett was speechless.She didn't care if he waved to Yoselin at all!The meeting with Yoselin was over. Then came the meeting with the Tank family.They booked a recent flight around 9:00 a.m., arriving in Deeton by 12:00.Larry came to meet them at the airport. When he saw Raymond, his smile faded, "Haven't seen you for a long time. Mr. Shaw.""It's been a long time, Mr. Tank."Scarlett looked on as they greeted each other politely.Seeing her smile, Larry said, "How brave you are!"Scarlett smiled, "Didn't you tell me to do that?""It was just a suggestion."It was up to Scarlett to accept that."Grandpa won't do anything to us. Why should I be afraid?""Well," Larry didn't comment on this matte
Chapter 830Thanks to Scarlett's company, Rowan really enjoyed this meal.Much had happened in Juanton City those days, most of which were related to Scarlett.After lunch, Rowan walked downstairs with Scarlett, leaning on his cane.Before they went downstairs, Rowan glanced at Raymond, who was about to follow them, "Mr. Shaw, I'm going for a walk with Scarlett. You must be tired. I'll have Larry take you to the hotel."When Scarlett heard that, she couldn't help smiling.Raymond looked at her and met her eyes. She shook her head and beckoned him to obey Rowan.Scarlett had asked Frank to book a hotel for Raymond before they came to Deeton City. Rowan was good enough to allow Raymond to stay for lunch, but a sleepover was definitely out of the question.Raymond had the audacity to stay for lunch and clearly upset Rowan. So Rowan kept talking about other men with Scarlett during the meal.Raymond had to stop pissing Rowan off, or the consequence would be severe.He watched Scar
Chapter 831"You live alone. You might as well get a cat to keep you company."Hearing that, Scarlett said less confidently, "I'd prefer not. I don't spend much time at home. If it gets lost, it will be dangerous."Rowan thought about it and said, "You have a point. Cats are always running loose. This cat has been running about since it was a kitten. David used to dote on this cat and take it out when it was young. Then it grew up and went out on its own. Over the past ten years, it should have been to all corners of this villa area."Rowan's smile faded a little when he thought of David in the hospital.The doctor said that David's days were numbered.Rowan was a little saddened as people around him passed away one by one.Scarlett sensed his sadness and said, "I've never seen Mr. Fratelli, Grandpa."Hearing that, Rowan was stunned for a while, and then remembered himself, "Oh, David never believed you looked like your grandma. We'll go to the hospital and prove that to him."
Chapter 832Anyway, Rowan's attitude had finally changed a little.After the walk, Rowan asked Scarlett to rest.Raymond texted Scarlett half an hour ago that Larry had dropped him off at the hotel.Only then did Scarlett see the message. As soon as Scarlett replied to him, he texted her, "Have you gone back?""Yes."Hardly had she sent it than Raymond made a call."What are you doing tomorrow?”Thinking of Rowan's proposal, Scarlett planned to trick him, "Grandpa said he would take me to see his friend's grandson tomorrow."After a moment's silence, Raymond asked, "Do you have any idea where that is?""Nope.""Well, it's time to go to bed," Raymond then said nothing.Scarlett thought he got angry, "Raymond?""Ah-huh?""Are you mad?""No, I'm not."He knew Rowan was not happy with him, and it was not the first time Rowan had introduced Scarlett to other men.He did not get angry but planned to have someone find out who Scarlett was meeting the next day.His tone was th
Chapter 833After hearing what Viviana had said, Scarlett looked back, "Aunt Viviana, Larry has a sense of proportion.""If he has a sense of proportion, there isn't such a thing as him being nearly thirty-five years old and not having a girlfriend. I'm not in a hurry to get him married. He's got his own opinion. But no matter how he has his own opinion, he is more than thirty years old, and he's not as sensitive as you are."As she spoke, Viviana took a look at Rowan, "See... Am I right? Your grandpa is firm in speech but soft in heart. Did he relent yesterday?"Scarlett took a look at Rowan, too. Thinking of their conversation last night, she looked gratefully at Viviana, "Thank you.""You don't need to thank me. I am your aunt. It's not that your grandpa doesn't allow you to be with the guy from the Shaw family. He's just afraid you will get hurt again. He still remembers what happened between the two of you. That's what old people are like. You have to be patient. Your grandpa
Chapter 834Scarlett saw that Rowan and David had a lot to talk about, so she walked out of the ward after peeling the apples.As she walked downstairs, Scarlett saw Larry, who was standing nearby and talking on his cell phone.It was a fine day and the sun was shining today. Scarlett only wore a long dress, which made her feel lukewarm in this weather and she felt right at this temperature. Only when the wind blew, could she feel a little cool.Seeing that Larry was on the phone, Scarlett didn't walk over to him.She took out her phone and saw a message, which Raymond sent to her 20 minutes ago, asking if she was free for dinner tonight.Scarlett thought for a moment and replied "okay" to Raymond.As soon as she finished replying to the message, Scarlett heard someone calling her. She looked back and then looked up at this person.He was a middle-aged man in a suit. It was a nice suit, but it was the man's bulging belly that made the suit look ugly.When he saw Scarlett looki
