Read Chapter 673 and 674 of the novel Predestined Marriage free online.
However, after Grace was rescued by Karl from the fire, there are very few people whom she can take the initiative to call.
Smith is one of them.
It is not difficult for Grace to be so close to Smith. Karl was cold-tempered, and he was not much gentle as a father. Although Smith is usually harsh, he has children and is patient and gentle with them.
It may also be because he has witnessed Grace’s birth and the hardships she has gone through.
Smith gave Grace a gentle smile and conjured a lollipop from his bag and handed it to Grace.
Grace looked up at Alyssa, and Alyssa nodded, indicating that she could pick it up.
Seeing that Grace took the lollipop, he looked at Alyssa, and said respectfully: “Sir asked me to wait for you here. Now we can go up.”
Alyssa stretched out her hand and hooked the hair that fell from her ears, and looked at Smith with a smile but a meaningful one: “I still know Adams’ way. Karl has made an unnecessary move.”
“Ms. Alyssa doesn’t need to be so repulsive. If you take Grace to go out, there is always an inconvenience. Sir is also considering that.” Smith answered drippingly.
Alyssa knew that no matter what she said, he always said what he thought.
When working beside Karl, he was very shrewd.
Alyssa smiled and said, suddenly realized: “It turned out to be for Grace’s consideration.”
Smith sighed slightly: “Miss Alyssa, please come with me.”
Alyssa led Grace behind Smith, but she found that Smith did not lead them through the gate, but went to the Karl special elevator at the entrance of the parking lot.
Karl really took pains, he was afraid that others would see her and Grace and would pass it out, right?
Alyssa smiled mockingly.
When a man changes his heart, he is more cautious than a woman.
The numbers of the elevator kept changing, and it stopped until the floor where Karl’s office was located.
When she got out of the elevator, Alyssa sneered, “Is Karl very free these days? I have to personally discuss such a small investment?”
“Sir is a very conscientious businessman. He is very devoted to every project.” Smith’s tone was sincere and serious. If Alyssa didn’t understand Karl, she might have believed Smith’s words.
No matter when, Smith would absolutely defend Karl, standing at Karl’s side.
No matter how many questions Alyssa asked, it was impossible to get anything out of Smith’s mouth.
Smith took Alyssa directly to Karl’s office.
He knocked twice on the door: “Sir, Miss Alyssa is here.”
“Come in.” Karl’s deep voice came from inside, and Alyssa’s heart trembled.
Smith opened the door and stood aside to let Alyssa in.
Why do we need to talk about signing a contract in the office?
What Karl did recently is really hard to understand.
Alyssa led Grace and walked in.
Karl was sitting behind his desk and working, flipping through the documents in his hand and didn’t know what he was looking at.
Alyssa led Grace to walk to him before he raised his head and glanced at Alyssa.
“Grace stays with me, you can go to negotiate a contract with them. After the talk, come and take Grace away.” Karl’s voice was cold and indifferent, without a trace of extra emotion, and he didn’t even look at Alyssa much. Take a warm look.
Alyssa was a little startled, it turned out that Karl was really only thinking about Grace.
Karl’s attitude was very obvious. He would let Smith wait for them purely because of Grace.
Alyssa felt that there was something wrong with her mentality. Perhaps it was because Karl had taken her too importantly in the past, and she did many things because of him.
Up to this moment, she still has this illusion.
Alyssa pursed her lips and let out a sigh of relief: “Okay.”
Then, she knelt down, said a few words to Grace, then turned around and went out.
After Alyssa went out, Grace climbed onto the chair on Karl’s desk.
She was young, and it took the boss’s effort to raise her head in a chair to see Karl’s face.
Karl raised his head from the file, just to meet Grace’s eyes that were very similar to his own.
Karl closed the file, relaxed, and his tone was softer than when he had just spoken to Alyssa, and asked, “Are you thirsty?”
Grace shook her head and just sat on the chair to look at him, without speaking.
Then, she took the candy that Smith gave her before from her pocket and handed it to Karl.
She meant to let Karl tear it apart for her.
But after Karl took the candy in his hand, he put it in a drawer on the side and locked it.
Grace watched as Karl locked her candy, got up from the chair angrily, pointed to the drawer and said, “Candy!”
Karl directly hit the inside line: “Send some hot milk and biscuits in.”
Grace likes to eat candy very much, but her teeth are not good, Karl is already controlling her not to give her candy.
After a while, the secretary came in with a tray with a cup of hot milk and small biscuits.
This secretary is new here and has never met Grace.
She looked at the little girl who was like Karl who was a seven-pointer standing on the chair, with surprise on her face.
Karl leaned against the back of the chair with his arms around and looked at Grace, but did not miss the secretary’s expression.
He frowned slightly. It is said that there are two secretaries in the secretary’s office on maternity leave before and after, so the personnel department only recruited new people.
He doesn’t really like such a fussing newcomer.
The secretary felt Karl watching her, and quickly put down the things in the tray and put them on the table one by one.
At this time, she heard Karl asking her: “Are you a new intern?”
Karl finally hired the CEO’s secretary, and with so many people in the secretary’s office, there were only one or two people he trusted very much to get close to Karl.
She also passed five levels and cut six seniors, and it took a few relationships to join the Adams’.
It is impossible to say that she has no illusions about Karl in her heart.
Young, promising and handsome CEO, and intern secretary, no matter how you look at this match, it is easy to create sparks.
The intern secretary blushed: “Yes, Sir, I am the new secretary, my name is Siya.”
“Did I ask your name?” Karl’s voice was colder than before, and Siya felt a chill in her back.
It is said that the personality of the CEO is difficult to touch. Just now the CEO took the initiative to ask her. She thought that the CEO thought she was special…
“I…” Siya “I” for a long time, so scared that she couldn’t say anything, it seemed a bit pitiful.
Karl felt even more bored: “Get out!”
Siya quickly turned around and went out in a panic.
When the door was closed, Karl’s expression eased when he looked at Grace.
He put the milk and biscuits in front of Grace: “Eat it.”
When Alyssa arrived in the meeting room, she found that almost everyone was there.
Mattie waved to Alyssa, and Alyssa sat down.
Adams’ investment in “Lost City 2” project was personally finalized by Karl. The CEO personally finalized it, and the people below naturally don’t need to do extra things.
The signing of the contract went smoothly, and it was all about Mattie communicating with them again, and it wasn’t about Alyssa at all.
The more Alyssa thought about it, the more she wondered, since it has nothing to do with her, what should she do?
Karl is eating too much to support?
Alyssa took a deep breath, her anger was already brewing in her heart.
However, in her cognition, Karl was not such a stingy man, so he wouldn’t care about these little things with her.
Maybe it’s because of Miana.
Alyssa thought about it, and felt that Karl did all this because of Miana, which was a little untenable.
After all, with Karl’s character, if he really doesn’t love someone anymore, he would definitely not take a second look. Where can so much free time be directed at her?
Just as he was really doing it for Miana, after the shooting of “Lost City 2”, let Miana trouble her. He didn’t need to go into the water to target her.
All the thoughts passed through her mind, and Alyssa felt that she was thinking too much.
“Alyssa, leaving, what are you thinking about?”
Mattie’s voice pulled Alyssa’s thoughts back.
Alyssa recovered, only to find that everyone in the meeting room was walking outside, only Mattie was still waiting for her.
She quickly stood up: “Oh, let’s go.”
The two walked outside side by side, Mattie saw that Alyssa was still in despair, and couldn’t help asking, “What do you think?”
“It’s okay.” Of course Alyssa couldn’t tell Mattie what she was thinking.
At this moment, there was a sudden commotion in front.
Not knowing what happened, all the people walking in front suddenly started to run.
Then, the entire floor came out.
Alyssa heard something vaguely.
She listened carefully, and then said with a serious look: “It seems to be the sound of a smoke alarm.”
Then, don’t know who shouted: “It’s on fire, it’s on fire!”
Everyone rushed to the safety exit and ran down.
Even Mattie, who was walking next to Alyssa, had a slight change of expression and wanted to run to the safety exit.
The meeting room where the contract was signed was not on the same floor as Karl’s office, and for Karl’s office one has to go up two floors.
Grace was still with Karl.
Alyssa didn’t think much about other things, turned around and ran upstairs.
Mattie noticed that Alyssa hadn’t followed up, but when she turned around, she saw Alyssa walking backwards in the crowd, clearly going upstairs.
She looked anxious and called Alyssa’s name loudly: “Alyssa, where are you going!”
“You go first, don’t worry about me.” Alyssa only looked back at Mattie, and continued to walk up against the pedestrians.
There were fewer people on the upper two floors than those on the lower floors. Alyssa struggled up one floor and found that this floor was empty. The stairs leading to Karl’s office were very empty.
Whoever spares his life, everyone is a good athlete when running away, running fast.
Alyssa quickened her pace and ran up three steps in two steps. At the corner of the stairs, she collided with the person coming down.
The person who came down from above also walked very quickly, and the two people slammed into each other abruptly, and Alyssa’s head was a little faint.
Fortunately, the person who hit her held her shoulder with a strong arm and familiar breath hit her. Even without looking at his face, Alyssa immediately guessed who was supporting her.
She raised her head sharply, and met Karl’s anxious face.
His good-looking eyebrows were gathered together tightly, Alyssa’s eyes were stained with anxiety, and his voice was deeper than usual: “Is it all right?”
Alyssa replied subconsciously: “It’s okay.”
Karl’s frowning eyebrows were loosened, and his tone sounded like a sigh of relief: “It’s all right.”
In such an emergency situation just now, Karl asked her what she answered. It was completely habitual.
But after calming down at this moment, she discovered the abnormality of Karl.
The look he had just now seemed to be concerned about her.
Alyssa realized this, and Karl naturally realized it.
His face became cold, and he returned to his usual indifferent face that refused to be thousands of miles away. He suddenly let go of Alyssa, his eyes were disgusting, and his tone was cold: “It’s a fire, what are you running up for? Does my company depend on you?”
Every word that came out of his mouth was extremely ugly.
But Alyssa did not sneer like before. She looked at Karl with burning eyes, and there was even a smile on the corner of her lips.
Karl’s complexion became more and more ugly, and she called her name blankly: “Alyssa.”
Alyssa asked instead, “Where is Grace?”
Karl met her eyes, and quickly turned away from her, a little embarrassed.
“Smith took her down first.”
The smile on Alyssa’s lips continued to expand uncontrollably, eyes as if sticking to him, without blinking: “I never knew that Mr. Adams turned out to be such a pity. When he ran away, he can still remember the life and death of his ex-wife.”
“Oh, being passionate!”
Karl sneered, his eyes blatantly disdainful: “If it catches fire, it will naturally take the stairs, and I just happened to meet you here. You want to die here and I won’t stop you.”
After he finished speaking, he threw away her hand and walked downstairs.
Alyssa faintly smelled a hint of smoke, but she stood still and didn’t move.
She even leaned on the handrail of the stairs, watching Karl go downstairs with interest.
Karl walked down quickly at first, but slowed down as he walked.
Alyssa smiled unclearly: “Mr. Adams, hurry up, I can smell the smoke, is the fire burning up? It has nothing to do with you if I die here, anyway, it is an accident, it can’t be blamed on you.”
She deliberately increased the volume, just to make Karl hear her clearly.
When the voice fell, Karl accelerated his pace again and continued to walk down.
Alyssa maintained the posture of leaning on the handrail of the stairs, and the smile on her face gradually froze. It was like a burnt field, leaving only a barren land.
Did he really leave like this again?
But just now, she clearly saw care and anxiety in his eyes. That was the look on Karl that she couldn’t be more familiar with. How could she have read it wrong?
Is she still wrong?
Alyssa fell to the ground along the handrail of the stairs.
Could it be that Karl’s separation from her really didn’t have any difficulties, but really didn’t love her?
Best Day was played by Robert and Karl stood by.
She went to Karl’s villa to see Grace, but was intercepted by Robert on the way back, but Karl hugged Miana not far from her accident. She was injured and shed so much blood. Karl did not seem to have seen it either.
But today, she thought she saw the worry for her in Karl’s eyes.
But he left without looking back.
Alyssa feels that no matter how hard a person is, cuteness cannot be hidden.
It is impossible to love someone without caring about her life or death.
For example, when she heard that it was on fire, the person she thought of was Karl except for Grace.
