He took it out and took a look. The word “Miana” was beating on it, so that he didn’t have the slightest desire to answer the call, and he threw the phone aside.
He smoked the cigarette that he was about to squeeze until only the cigarette butt remained, and then pressed it out in the ashtray.
After that, he reached out and picked up the phone he had thrown away before.
Just picking up the phone, another call came.
It was still from Miana.
Karl answered the phone expressionlessly, and he didn’t speak, waiting for her on the other end to speak first.
Miana asked reproachfully: “Why don’t you answer my call?”
“In a meeting.” Karl lied without blinking his face.
Miana’s arrogance suddenly disappeared a bit, and her tone softened a little, and she said compromisingly: “Karl, I was injured in the bridal shop…”
Karl turned on the hands-free, took the phone in his hand, walked to the desk and sat down, put the phone down, looking casually.
After a while, when she finished speaking, he added faintly: “There are still several meetings today. I will come to the hospital to see you after work.”
Miana actually hoped that Karl would move to see her now, and wanted to get comfort from him, but he had already said that he has several meetings, so she has to act generously and wait for him tonight. Come see her again.
But when the words came to her lips, she reluctantly said: “In your eyes, it is all work! I am more important or work is important! If you accompany me to see the wedding dress today, I might not get hurt!”
Karl raised his eyes slightly, and said in a constant tone: “You are important, and work is also important, but you are more important than work.”
After Miana said so much, she just wanted to hear something nice from Karl.
Karl’s words caught her heart, her voice was already stained with a smile: “I know, you should also pay attention to your body.”
“Take rest.” Karl’s fingers tapped slowly and rhythmically on the desk, revealing his impatience.
When Alyssa returned home, she always felt that Dave was weird.
Not only was Dave helping her deal with Miana, it was weird that Dave would appear here and promise to be her bodyguard from the beginning.
But Alyssa couldn’t tell how weird it was.
Alvin’s matter reverberated in her mind.
All things mixed together, there is always an inexplicable irritability, it seems that some inexplicable force is pushing them forward.
In the afternoon, she began to make soup for Tina.
Before the soup was ready, Alyssa’s cell phone rang.
Alyssa helped watch the heat of the soup without paying attention to who was calling, so she called directly, “Hello?”
“Go to the kindergarten to pick up Grace today.”
The man’s low voice came from the mobile phone, and Alyssa gave a violent hand with the lid of the pot.
This is… Karl’s voice!
Alyssa did not make a sound during the meeting.
The man on the other end was already a little impatient: “Are you inconvenient?”
“Is there no time for the Mr. Smith to pick up Grace?” Alyssa asked on her behalf.
Karl seemed to not want to say a word to her, so he only replied, “Yes.”
“Then I will pick her up later.” After Alyssa finished speaking, she hung up the phone.
She always felt that if she hung up the phone first, she would have won something.
Alyssa couldn’t help but laugh at herself.
There is still an hour before Grace is over from school, when the soup is ready, she and Grace have eaten, and they go to send soup to Tina.
Tina likes Grace, she must be happy to see her.
After the soup was boiled, Alyssa turned off the fire and drove to pick up Grace.
Grace obediently followed the teacher at the door of the kindergarten. Seeing Alyssa getting off the car from a distance, she raised her head and said a few words to the teacher, and then ran towards Alyssa.
Alyssa squatted down to catch Grace, and heard her milky voice asking: “Mom, why did you come to pick me up suddenly?”
“Don’t you want your mother to pick you up?” Alyssa scratched her nose, hugged Grace and carried her into the car.
“Yes~” Grace snorted on Alyssa’s face.
Alyssa laughed and buckled Grace’s seat belt.
Grace murmured: “Dad said in the morning that he would come to pick me up.”
Alyssa was taken aback for a while, stretched out her hand to pat Grace’s small face, smiled and said, “He is busy at work, so your mother came to pick you up.”
Grace nodded: “Yeah.”
Alyssa looked at Grace from the rearview mirror, with a hint of discussion in her tone: “Remember Aunt Tina? She is injured and is admitted to the hospital. Shall we go see her after lunch?”
“Why is she injured?” Grace looked up, with doubts written in her big eyes.
“You get hurt by accident, so you have to be careful when you take the stairs and do what you do. Don’t hurt yourself.” Alyssa explained to her warmly.
Grace nodded again: “I know.”
She took Grace home, and after the two had eaten, Alyssa took soup and Grace to the hospital.
Before going, she called Tina.
Grace had never been to the hospital before, and was curious about everything the first time she came to the hospital.
The two entered the elevator, and the elevator stopped when it reached the floor of Tina’s Ward.
This floor is a VIP ward. You can hardly see anyone when you enter and exit. It is quiet and confidential.
As soon as Alyssa got out of the elevator, she ran into a man who was approaching.
Grace was the first to say: “Dad.”
Alyssa couldn’t help but tightened her hand tightly. Her gaze fell behind Karl, Miana was sitting in a wheelchair, looking towards Alyssa.
This hospital has a good reputation. Basically, people with a certain status will come to this hospital for medical treatment and hospitalization. Tina is here, and it is normal for Miana to be here if she is injured.
But unexpectedly, Miana happened to be on the same floor as Tina.
Karl seemed to have not seen Alyssa, and only replied to Grace: “Yeah.”
Grace stood quietly next to Alyssa, looking at Karl and Alyssa again, with a puzzled face.
Seeing this, Miana motioned to the nurse behind her to push her forward, and smiled at Grace: “Grace, I haven’t seen you for a long time, do you remember me?”
Grace glanced at Miana and curled her lips: “I don’t remember.”
Miana’s face changed when she heard this, and looked at Karl: “Karl…”
Tina’s voice suddenly sounded, and Alyssa looked over, and saw Tina also coming out in a wheelchair.
“You sent me a message before saying that you are coming up. Seeing that you haven’t come, I came out to have a look…” Tina slid over in her wheelchair. When she got closer, she realized that the person standing in front of Alyssa was Karl. , The person in the wheelchair is Miana.
Tina sighed secretly, this scene… is really a bit exciting!
Alyssa saw Tina sliding over on her own wheelchair, and quickly walked over with Grace, held onto Tina’s wheelchair, and whispered, “You don’t need to come out.”
“How could I see this scene if I didn’t come out…” Tina lowered her voice, facing Alyssa’s direction, but eyes glanced at Karl and Miana on the other side.
After she finished speaking, she noticed that Grace was also coming, and she was surprised: “Why is Ms. Grace also here?”
“Aunt Tina.” Grace cried out obediently, her eyes fell on Tina’s plastered leg, and curiously asked: “Are you hurt?”
Tina touched her face, smiled and shook her head: “It doesn’t hurt.”
Hearing this, Grace reached out and carefully touched her plastered leg, then raised her eyes to see Tina’s reaction.
Tina couldn’t laugh, and she held Grace’s hand and tapped on her leg twice, and said, “It’s really not painful, it’s not painful, you can’t knock the inside.”
Grace looked at it curiously, but didn’t reach out to knock again, only grinned.
Miana remembered that in the coffee shop that day, Karl had asked her a few times if she had done anything. She felt a little guilty when she saw Tina.
She said: “Karl, let’s go, are you going to take Grace with you?”
Miana’s voice caught Tina’s attention.
Tina first smiled at Grace, gently pushed her to Alyssa’s side, patted her on the head again, and then turned her head to look at Miana: “Oh, Miss Palmer, you are still broken. When you’re on your legs, you have to worry about other people’s children? Don’t worry about being so wide when you get older, and be careful to get older faster.”
Alyssa whispered her name: “Tina.”
Tina didn’t hear it, and continued to follow Miana.
Miana was very angry when she was cold, and few people dared to show her face in front of her, not to mention that after she and Karl were together, the limelight became more popular, and no one dared to shame her like this.
Miana suppressed her anger: “You lady, have I offended you in any way? Please pay attention to your words.”
Miana can buy people to intentionally injure Tina, so it’s impossible not to know Tina.
Tina’s gaze fell on Miana’s leg, which was also plastered, and said slowly: “There will be retribution for doing bad things, Miss Palmer has an experience.”
“I don’t understand what you are talking about!” After Ms. Palmer pretended to be calm, she urged Karl: “Let’s go.”
Karl said nothing, and went straight to the elevator entrance.
“Alyssa, let’s go.” Tina snorted as she slid her wheelchair toward the ward.
Seeing this, Alyssa reached out to help push the wheelchair towards the ward.
She noticed that Grace walked and looked back to see Karl.
Alyssa lowered her head warmly, and asked Grace softly, “What’s wrong? Do you want to go to Dad’s place?”
Grace shook her head, her little brows frowned slightly, her little hand resting on Tina’s wheelchair, and walking with them to the ward, looking like a thoughtful little adult.
After entering the ward, Alyssa asked Grace to sit down first, and then opened the soup and meals that she brought over.
Tina teased Grace, but Grace seemed unhappy and didn’t pay much attention to her.
Tina asked Alyssa in a low voice, “What’s wrong with Grace?”
Alyssa also noticed Grace’s abnormality. She glanced at Grace and said to Tina, “You can eat first. I’ll take Grace home after you finish eating.”
Taking advantage of the Tina eating, Alyssa sat down in front of Grace and asked her, “What’s the matter?”
Grace curled her lips and said nothing.
Alyssa reached out and gave her a hug.
After Tina finished eating, Alyssa left with Grace.
On the way back, Grace fell asleep.
When she got downstairs, Alyssa held Grace upstairs. In a few months, Grace will be celebrating her fourth birthday. She weighs more than 30 pounds now, almost 40 pounds. She hugged her to the door of her house, panting with exhaustion and sweating profusely.
After opening the door and going in, when Alyssa put her on the sofa, she woke up in a daze, and screamed, “Mom…”
“Wake up? Wash your face before going to sleep.” Seeing her awake, Alyssa pulled her up: “Will you go by yourself?”
Grace rubbed her eyes and was led to the bathroom by Alyssa.
When Alyssa washed her face, she shook her head and said, “Dad and Aunt Palmer are together.”
“Huh?” Alyssa didn’t hear too clearly for a while. After a pause, she realized what Grace had said.
“Aunt Palmer” naturally refers to Miana.
Alyssa washed her face and started washing her hands again.
Grace looked up at her: “Why isn’t Dad with you?”
Alyssa was stunned. In the hospital before, Grace had been unhappy because of this?
The movement of Alyssa’s hands slowed down a lot, and she said softly: “No one and anyone has to be together, and your father and I don’t want to be together anymore, so he will be with Aunt Palmer.”
Grace, didn’t know if she understood. When Alyssa wiped her hands clean, Grace said again: “Then you want to be with Uncle Alvin?”
“Huh?” This time, Alyssa was completely stunned: “Why do you… why do you think I will be with Uncle Alvin?”
Grace thought without hesitation: “He is handsome.”
Alyssa was surprised and had nothing to say.
She felt that Grace could understand everything, but she just didn’t know how to express it.
It was precisely because Alyssa felt that Grace might understand these things, so she decided not to continue this topic with her.
Children’s attention is easily diverted.
However, when Grace was sent back to the room to sleep, Alyssa was stumped by her problem again.
“Mom, don’t you think Uncle Alvin is handsome?”
Looking at Grace’s innocent eyes, Alyssa couldn’t laugh or cry: “You think he is handsome, he is handsome. Okay, go to bed.”
Early the next morning, Alyssa drove Grace to kindergarten.
As soon as she got out of the car, Alyssa felt that someone was watching her.
She looked around for a while and noticed an unremarkable black car not far away.
Although black is low-key, the license plate is not low-key.
Alyssa recognized at a glance that it was Karl’s car.
What did Karl drove to the entrance of the kindergarten to see Grace?
But if he came to see Grace, he could go to her in the morning to pick up Grace. Otherwise, he should get off the car at this time.
Since there are none, it means that Karl didn’t come to see Grace, it was possible that he came to her.
Alyssa did not say anything, but sent Grace to the kindergarten.
When she came out, she saw Smith standing in front of her car.
“Miss Alyssa.” Smith nodded slightly and greeted her.
Alyssa asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Please come over.” Smith glanced in the direction of Karl’s car.
