After listening to Karl’s words, Alyssa didn’t know what to say.
She stared at Karl, observing the changes in his facial expression, guessing what he was thinking.
Alyssa thought and thought, but she couldn’t guess what Karl was thinking.
She said in a somewhat impatient tone: “So you take it for granted that you don’t want me to know everything, and you keep it from me? Do you think it’s good for me?”
Karl narrowed his eyes and asked, “Do I think OK for you to tell you everything?”
Alyssa felt that her previous evaluation of Karl was too one-sided.
Is Karl really smart? He is clearly like a stupid cow, unable to turn at all.
What she and Karl wanted to express was not the same thing.
“Go to sleep.” Alyssa stood up and walked upstairs.
The bedroom Claire left for Alyssa was the last time Karl came to live.
The room is not very big and the bed is very soft.
Turning off the light, Alyssa opened her eyes in the dark, not sleepy.
Grace’s matter made her sleepless.
After a long time, after she felt that the people next to her had been breathing smoothly, she sat up, turned on the bedside lamp, and planned to go out to see Grace.
She was still very worried.
However, she had just been together, and Karl, who had thought he had fallen asleep, also sat up at this time, with a clear voice: “Where to go?”
Alyssa was taken aback for a moment, then turned back to look at Karl: “You…”
She paused before continuing: “I want to see Grace.”
“You go to bed, I’ll go.” Karl got out of the bed after turning over, pulling his jacket and going out.
Karl’s series of actions were unexpectedly fast, and when Alyssa reacted, the door was already closed.
Alyssa still followed.
Grace slept fairly well.
Back in the room, the two of them had a tacit understanding and did not immediately lie down on the bed.
“I don’t want to tell you about Grace’s situation, just don’t want to see your restless look.”
Karl’s voice rang in the silent night, deep and complex emotions.
“But if I didn’t know about Grace for a long time afterwards, did you think I would blame myself and feel sad?” Alyssa didn’t intend that Karl could figure this out.
Neither of them slept well this night.
They got up early the next morning.
When Alyssa got up, she went to Grace’s room to check, and then went downstairs to make breakfast.
She made Grace’s breakfast first, and then made everyone’s.
It was cold, Grace slept late at night and woke up late in the morning.
Alyssa had breakfast with everyone, and then took Grace’s breakfast to her room to find her.
Grace was already awake and was staring out the window blankly.
“Grace, good morning.” Alyssa walked over with a smile and put the breakfast on the table.
Grace was probably already hungry. She was attracted by the aroma of the food and stared brightly at the breakfast on the table.
“Are you hungry? Wash your face and brush your teeth, put on your clothes and get up to eat.” Alyssa put her footsteps to the lightest, and her voice was extremely gentle. She was afraid of disturbing her.
Grace stared at Alyssa without any expression. She didn’t know what she was thinking, or she might not think of anything.
At this time, the door was pushed open again.
Alyssa heard the door opening, and before she could confirm who came in, she saw Grace shrunk her shoulders and looked terrified.
“It’s okay, don’t be afraid.” Alyssa first helped Grace warmly and comfortably.
However, she was somewhat delighted in her heart.
Before Karl came, Grace had basically no reaction at all, as dumb as a robot doll.
However, after Karl came last night, Grace was actually afraid of Karl and would react with fear.
Although this is not a good phenomenon, it is at least a reaction that a normal person has.
At least, Grace could already perceive the emotions of normal people.
This made Alyssa feel extremely pleased.
Grace kept staring at Karl with a vigilant expression.
After Karl approached, Grace simply threw himself into Alyssa’s arms.
Alyssa was flattered and stunned.
After a few seconds, she reacted slowly and put Grace into her arms.
She hugged Grace and turned her head to show a slightly meaningful smile at Karl.
After returning to the country, Karl had never seen Alyssa smile from the heart.
It was rare to see Alyssa who was so happy from the heart, and Karl couldn’t help but laugh.
It might be because Karl’s arrival aroused Grace’s emotions.
As long as she sees Karl, she will seek protection like other people, hiding in arms involuntarily.
But if Karl left, she would go to see Karl secretly.
Love and fear, but that’s all.
Alyssa felt that such Grace was also extremely cute.
Grace’s breakfast went well.
When Alyssa packed Grace’s dinner plate and went out, she found Karl was standing outside the room waiting for her.
Karl first took the dinner plate in Alyssa’s hand and walked downstairs without saying a word.
After arriving in the kitchen, Karl said, “It’s time to go back.”
“Where to go back?” After Alyssa finished speaking, she understood. What Karl said was to go back to Rostenvel.
The expression on Alyssa’s face was full, and she carefully washed Grace’s dinner plate with her eyes down.
“I won’t go back. Either take Grace back or I stay to take care of her.” With Grace’s current situation, how could she leave Grace and return to Rostenvel alone.
Karl was silent for a moment, and said, “Then take her back.”
Alyssa looked up at him, the doubt in her eyes was obvious.
“I am not just Alyssa, you’re not just Karl, I’m still Grace’s father, and I hope she will get better soon. As for other things, nothing is more important than Grace.”
Karl looked at Alyssa’s eyes and spoke clearly and slowly.
The two looked at each other for a while, then suddenly smiled at each other.
Alyssa thought of another thing.
“What about your sister? What will she do?” The smile on Alyssa’s face faded when she thought of Claire’s illness.
Claire is Karl’s relatives, and she carries the same blood as Karl.
Karl fell silent.
Alyssa asked him softly, “Can you tell me what you think?”
There is no unchanging love and no lasting hate in this world. The human heart is the most unpredictable thing.
Alyssa felt that Karl’s feelings for Claire were complicated, and it might be too complicated to make a decision.
“If you can, take her back together.” Alyssa said while paying attention to Karl’s complexion.
Seeing that there was no obvious change in Karl’s complexion, Alyssa continued, “She is also Grace’s aunt after all.”
She didn’t say that Claire was Karl’s relatives, because she was afraid of causing Karl’s backlash.
Karl had obviously softened his heart, but couldn’t make a decision, so let her help him make this decision.
After Alyssa finished speaking, Karl did not answer immediately.
She waited for a while, only to realize that Karl didn’t mean to speak, and said, “Then it’s decided like this? I’ll ask her what she thinks.”
Karl did not object, Alyssa turned around and went to find Claire.
When Alyssa went to find Claire, Claire was sitting in front of the mirror playing with her wig.
There is not a woman who does not love beauty.
What’s more, it’s a woman like Claire who once lived so exquisitely.
Even if she is sick, her hair is almost lost, and she has prepared a lot of fakes.
All kinds, long, short, straight and rolled.
Seeing Alyssa coming in, Claire put down the wig in her hand, turned around and asked Alyssa, “What’s wrong?”
Alyssa walked a few steps forward, stopped very close to Claire, and began to speak.
“Karl and I are going back to Rostenvel.”
After she saw Claire listened to her words, she paused slightly. That is a surprise.
Alyssa continued: “I want to take Grace back with us.”
As soon as the final note fell, Claire stood up abruptly and said, “What do you mean? Why take Grace away? Isn’t she pretty good here? It’s not convenient for you to take her back to Rostenvel.”
“We are her parents. At this time, we should be by her side.”
Alyssa’s words seemed to make Claire unable to find a reason to refute.
“That’s it…” Claire sighed slightly and nodded thoughtfully: “That said, she is your child after all, and she should be with you.”
Although Claire had tried her best to suppress her emotions, Alyssa still found a touch of loss in her eyes.
She saw all Claire’s reactions and expressions in her eyes.
But she just looked at her calmly, but didn’t say it through.
Alyssa said casually, “What about you? Come back to Rostenvel with us?”
After hearing Alyssa’s words, the surprise on Claire’s face could no longer hide.
“Grace should have been familiar with you these days, if you can go back with her. If she can see you every day, it might be helpful to her situation.”
The emphasis of Alyssa’s words fell on Grace. However, Claire was not stupid, she could hear that Alyssa wanted to take her back to Rostenvel.
Although she and Alyssa did not face-to-face encounters many times, this did not prevent her from understanding Alyssa.
Alyssa is not a reckless person, she would say such a thing, it means that she has discussed with Karl.
Claire watched Alyssa without speaking for a while, her mouth was slightly opened, tears flickering in her eyes.
“If you want, just get ready, we’re leaving soon.” Alyssa didn’t intend to stay here to watch Claire cry, let alone stay to comfort her.
When Alyssa turned around and went out, she glanced inadvertently and saw Claire stretch out her hand and wiped her face.
She pretended not to see anything, and went straight out.
Neither Alyssa nor Karl brought anything over, nor did they need to pack their things, but it was not easy to get Grace into the car.
Grace seemed to use her small room as her safe area, so she didn’t want to leave this room.
Alyssa took a lot of effort to coax Grace into the car.
Going back with them was Claire’s bodyguard, Dave.
Alyssa was still a little curious about Dave, mainly because he looked too unlike a normal bodyguard.
But on the way, she didn’t have the opportunity to ask Karl about Dave, because Grace had been close to her.
The family of three sat in the back row, Karl and Alyssa sat on either side, and Grace sat in the middle.
Grace was afraid of Karl, so naturally she could only lean against Alyssa tightly.
This shows that Grace still trusts her, which makes Alyssa a little happy.
At four o’clock in the afternoon, the car stopped in front of the villa in Rostenvel.
Alyssa took the blanket she had prepared a long time ago, wrapped Grace, carried her into the villa, and directly carried her upstairs to the room.
Grace seemed to have an impression of her own room, and when she reached the room, she quickly shrank to the corner of the bed and hid.
Alyssa comforted her for a while, and she fell asleep.
Said it was comforting, but it was actually just Alyssa standing two meters away from Grace, talking to Grace in the air.
After Grace settled down, Alyssa left the room.
When she went out, she happened to collide with Karl.
“Hush!” Alyssa made a silent gesture. After closing the door with her backhand, she said to Karl, “Grace is asleep.”
Karl heard this and asked, “Is she not making trouble?”
Alyssa gave a relaxed smile: “She’s okay.”
Karl watched her carefully, and saw that Alyssa smiled from the bottom of her heart, so he didn’t ask any more questions.
Alyssa looked around, but did not see Claire’s figure: “Where is your sister? Is it settled?”
Karl said without expression, “A servant will arrange it.”
Alyssa could faintly feel the thoughts in Karl’s heart.
Claire is now considered repentant, and Karl is willing to accept Claire, but the acceptance is still limited.
“I’ll go over and take a look.” Alyssa said, patted Karl’s hand.
Karl frowned and held her: “No.”
Alyssa smiled, took out her hand, and went to find Claire.
The servant arranged a guest room for Claire. There were not many things in the guest room, and many needed things needed to be purchased.
Alyssa said as a hostess: “If you have anything you need, just tell the servant.”
Claire’s gaze crossed Alyssa and looked behind her.
Alyssa knew she was watching if Karl came, but she was destined to be disappointed.
Alyssa didn’t break it: “You can rest first, and I will leave now.”
She left Claire’s room, and before she took a few steps, the phone rang.
When she saw that number, her face suddenly sank.
It was not someone else who called her, but Clifford.
What is Clifford calling her at this time?
Alyssa hesitated for a while before answering the phone.
“Something?” Even the basic phone etiquette was saved, Alyssa didn’t want to be polite with him.
Clifford didn’t mean anything, and asked her directly, “Where did you and Karl go last night?”
Alyssa was secretly shocked, and Clifford even knew that Karl was out of Rostenvel last night!
Clifford actually knew their schedule well.
However, listening to Clifford’s tone, it seemed he didn’t know that she left Rostenvel and Karl came after. He thought she and Karl went together at night?
