Didn’t Smith mean that Karl was in the company attending a meeting?
Why is Karl at home?
When Karl came downstairs, when he saw Alyssa, a flash of surprise flashed in his eyes.
Alyssa remembered the scene where Karl and Miana were hugging by the roadside on the day she was intercepted by Robert’s people.
These days, the scene always reminded her that Karl was no longer the Karl he used to be.
Alyssa clenched her hands, feeling a chill from the top of her head to the soles of her feet.
She tightened her lips, and her voice was slightly chilly: “The Mr. Smith said that you were in a meeting and I came here.”
“Really?” Karl had already walked down the stairs and walked towards her.
He stopped three steps away from Alyssa, “Did Smith say that I was in a meeting? Did Smith not understand enough, or did you not ask clearly enough?”
Alyssa felt that she was probably crazy.
Because at this moment, she didn’t think how to refute Karl’s slightly provocative words. What she thought turned out to be that Karl was thinner than before, and looked a lot less clear.
She and Karl thought about living too long, and they knew each other too well.
Therefore, after a period of time, she could easily find that Karl was thin.
Karl is a very self-controlling person. His weight has been maintained at a constant level and never rises. Except for overwork, he will reduce a little.
After being reduced, Karl looked a little sharper, his eyebrows were sharper, and he felt more aggressive.
Such a Karl was a bit strange to Alyssa.
For a time, there was a feeling of a world away.
The man’s low voice was close at hand.
Alyssa raised her head fiercely, only to realize that she was just doing a great job, and Karl had already approached her.
He lowered his eyes to look at her, with an imperceptible look in his eyes, and his eyes scanned her brows and eyes, and stayed on her neck for a moment.
Alyssa keenly sensed his gaze, and quickly stretched out her hand to cover the newly healed neck.
The location of her neck injury was actually close to the back of her neck.
This is entirely her subconscious action.
She stood in front of him and Miana with her wounds that day, very embarrassed, and his cold phrase “Irrelevant, don’t ask more” every word hit her heart fiercely.
The chill rose from the soles of the feet again.
Alyssa shuddered involuntarily.
Karl, who was standing in front of her, didn’t know what was thinking, and suddenly took a step forward.
Alyssa reacted very quickly and took a step back, her eyes full of vigilance.
She didn’t know what Karl wanted to do.
She had seen the gentle and affectionate appearance of this man, and she had seen him indifferent and unfeeling.
But now, she can only use her little self-esteem to maintain her decency.
Since it was his decision to let go, then they should be a little bit decent.
“I’ll go up to see Grace.” After Alyssa finished speaking, she hurried past him, and went upstairs as if she had fled, without looking at Karl again.
Karl stood with his back to the stairs, even if Alyssa looked back, she couldn’t see his face.
Where she could not see, Karl’s face looked like frost and snow crossing the border, so cold that there was no trace of humanity.
In the empty hall, besides Karl, there was Dave.
Just now, Dave had a panoramic view of what happened between Karl and Alyssa.
Alyssa went up, and he stayed in the hall waiting for her to come down.
Seeing Karl standing still, he walked towards Karl.
Dave put his hands in his pockets, and said thoughtfully: “It is said that women’s hearts are needles in the sea. I think men are sometimes difficult to understand, especially for men like you.”
Karl lowered his eyes and slowly adjusted his cuffs. When he raised his eyes again, there was no emotion in his eyes.
He only said a word in a hurry, and Dave’s complexion suddenly changed.
“Claire’s treatment abroad is not going well.”
“Karl!” Dave gritted his teeth and called out his name.
Karl curled his lips, looking evil, and there was a vicious atmosphere in his whole body.
“Follow our agreement well, so that Claire’s treatment will be smoother.” Karl’s voice was low and soft, but Dave’s ears had a creepy feeling.
Dave clenched his fists, looked at Karl with a green expression, and shouted, “She and you are the siblings of the same mother!”
“So what?” Karl’s expression hadn’t shown much on his face, and his voice was frighteningly cold: “I was forced to such a situation, and Claire’s help was indispensable.”
“But she already knew it was wrong.”
Karl laughed lowly, the laughter sounded cold: “I forgive her, who will let me go?”
Dave shook his hand heavily, turned around and walked outside angrily.
Then, Karl heard several dull voices.
It was like the sound of a fist hitting a wall.
After Dave walked outside and slammed the hand against the wall, he took a few breaths, turned his head and saw a few bodyguards passing by, calling them out: “Let’s learn.”
Dave had lived here for a while at Karl, and the bodyguards in the villa knew him.
But they are all a little afraid of Dave.
They don’t know Dave’s strength, but they also know that Dave is not a small character.
“Go together.” Regardless of their disagreement, Dave took off his jacket and nodded his chin at them: “Come on.”
Karl in the room heard the screams of bodyguards outside, and did not respond.
He walked over to the sofa and sat down, lit a cigarette, took a puff, caught it between his fingers, and did not move.
Alyssa went to Grace’s room.
It was found that Grace was sleeping.
Although Karl was thinner, he took care of Grace very well, but she looked a little bit fatter than the last time she saw her.
The complexion is very good, the small face is rosy and fleshy, covered with a duvet, sleeping soundly.
Looking at Grace, Alyssa’s depressed mood over the past few days has actually been relieved a lot.
She couldn’t bear to wake her up, so she looked at her quietly, feeling very satisfied in her heart.
She looked at Grace like this for a while, got up and went out, closing the door gently.
After such a meeting, she thought that Karl was no longer in the hall.
But when she went down, she found Karl was smoking in the hall.
There were already several cigarette butts in the ashtray in front of him.
When they were together before, Alyssa didn’t care about Karl’s smoking, and Karl didn’t smoke very much back then.
In such matters, he actually has a very careful side.
And now, Alyssa has no position to control him.
Alyssa stayed there for a while, then raised her foot and walked towards Karl.
Karl leaned on the sofa, looking lazy and indifferent.
Hearing the movement, he raised his eyes and glanced at Alyssa, raised his eyebrows slightly, and motioned for her to say something.
Alyssa glanced at the sofa opposite him, did not sit down, just stood and said to him: “I have something to tell you. I asked Smith to tell you, but if you are here, I will talk to him directly. You said.”
Karl didn’t know if he was listening to her seriously, and he took another heavy cigarette. His fingers are long and beautiful, and even the action of smoking is especially pleasing to the eye.
He tilted his head slightly and pressed the half cigarette in his hand into the ashtray before he looked at Alyssa casually: “So what?”
“I want to take Grace to live with me for a while.” Alyssa spoke directly.
Karl didn’t react directly, he stared at Alyssa and didn’t move for several seconds.
His silence made Alyssa a little nervous. Is Karl unwilling to let Grace go to her place?
After a long while, Karl sat up straight, and said without beginning or end, “It will be New Year’s Eve soon.”
There was a complex emotion in his tone that Alyssa couldn’t distinguish.
Alyssa suddenly remembered that after they were together, it seemed that they had not spent New Year’s Eve together.
On New Year’s Eve of the first year, something went wrong at Adams’ house.
Don’t mention it in the middle three years.
And this year…
Alyssa’s mind gradually became clear, and she understood the deep meaning of Karl’s words: “If you want to spend New Year’s Eve with Grace, I can send her back in advance.”
Who knows, Karl directly refused as soon as he spoke, “No.”
Before Alyssa could react, Karl said, “There is an appointment on New Year’s Eve, so I’m not free. You will pick her up tomorrow.”
When he finished speaking, he stood up and turned upstairs.
The back is cold, without a trace.
Alyssa bit the corner of her lips, as if blocking her gas in order to regain a city, she immediately hurried out.
As if walking slowly, the wind fell.
Walking out of the hall, Alyssa looked around and saw Dave squatting on the ground holding his coat and smoking a few bodyguards, like a black boss in society.
The bodyguards were more or less hurt on their faces.
He had a fight?
Alyssa walked over without asking much, and said, “Let’s go back.”
After she finished speaking, she walked out, and Dave quickly followed.
Feeling Dave’s footsteps getting closer and closer behind her, Alyssa’s steps quickened, and she kept her pace, never turning back: “Did you fight with Karl’s bodyguard?”
“Yeah.” Dave only responded, as before, still reluctant to say one more word.
Alyssa had long been accustomed to Dave’s appearance.
“I don’t want to have anything to do with Karl now, and you know that. Although I am your employer, your personal behavior has nothing to do with me.”
Dave understood the meaning of Alyssa’s words, and he sneered: “He knows that I beat his bodyguard. It was originally my personal matter and has nothing to do with you.”
“That’s good.” Alyssa was very satisfied with Dave’s answer.
She really didn’t want to get involved with Karl.
But the ridiculous thing was that she couldn’t really have nothing to do with Karl at all.
Karl is the father of her daughter and an investor in her new drama.
On the way back, there was abnormal silence in the car.
Alyssa was not happy because she saw Karl. Dave didn’t know why, and he didn’t seem to be in a good mood.
The two people didn’t mean to relate to each other, and remained silent all the way until they reached their destination.
After getting off the bus, the two went upstairs and parted ways.
Alyssa returned home, opened the refrigerator and took a look. There was nothing to eat.
Simply took a box of yogurt and drank it.
While drinking yogurt, she picked up her mobile phone to scan the news. Just when she saw a cold news item, her phone rang.
It was Tina who came here.
Once the phone was connected, Tina said, “I’m downstairs your house.”
Alyssa was startled, the hand holding the yogurt box didn’t control her strength, one inadvertently squeezed the yogurt out and spilled it on her clothes.
“When did you come back?” Alyssa hurriedly put down the yogurt, turned on the hands-free and called Tina while using a tissue to wipe the yogurt on her clothes.
“You don’t care when get back, I’ll be up now.” Tina was upset, and hung up after speaking.
Alyssa wiped the yogurt, got up and went to the bathroom to wash her hands, and saw the scar on her neck that had not fully recovered in the mirror.
She wore a round-neck pullover today. When she went out, she wore a coat and a scarf. When she returned home, she took off her coat and scarf, and the scar on her neck was exposed.
Alyssa didn’t know if Tina had found something in such a rush to find her, but she didn’t plan to tell Tina about Robert.
After all, it’s all over, it’s better to do more than to do less, so as not to worry.
As soon as Alyssa changed into a turtleneck sweater and came out of the bedroom, the door was knocked “bang” from the outside.
She walked quickly to the door and opened the door, and she saw Tina at the door.
Tina obviously just came out of the crew, with a suitcase on hand.
She wore a peaked cap and a down jacket hat on her head. Her hair was messy and she didn’t have makeup, but she looked very energetic.
“It took so long to open the door, what are you doing?” Tina complained and walked in directly with the suitcase.
Alyssa smiled, calmly adjusted her sweater turtleneck, and closed the door.
“Why didn’t you say a word in advance, you came here suddenly?” Alyssa said as she poured water for Tina.
Tina entered the room, threw the suitcase aside and jumped on the sofa, lying on the sofa waiting for Alyssa to pour her a glass of water.
Alyssa poured water and handed it to Tina.
“Thank you.” Tina took a sip, and put it on the coffee table in front of her.
Alyssa knew she had something to say, so she sat down next to her.
Sure enough, as soon as she sat down, Tina leaned over with a serious face: “I heard that Adams’s is going to invest in “Lost City 2″?”
“Your news network is quite fast.” Alyssa only learned about it today, but Tina also knew about it.
Tina snorted, with a smug look on her face: “Look at me, my network is much stronger than yours.”
Alyssa smiled, and said nothing.
“Are you reconciled with CEO Adams?” Tina asked gossiping again.
“No.” The expression on Alyssa’s face faded a little, and she lowered her eyes, took a deep breath and said, “That’s it, there will be no reconciliation.”
“Huh?” Tina was dumbfounded.
She excitedly stepped off the plane and took a taxi directly, because she knew that Karl was going to invest in “Lost City 2”, she thought that Alyssa and Karl were good.
