Soon Jamie’s voice came over, “Carla, it’s me.”
Carla’s voice was tense, “En.”
There was a moment of silence before he said, “The woman you were talking about is deadâ€¦”
“What?” Before Jamie finished speaking, he was interrupted excitedly by Carla.
How could she die?
She was obviously healthy and not too old. How can she die all of a sudden?
“Yes.” Jamie called her softly, comforting her agitated emotions, “Don’t worry, this matter doesn’t have to be investigated from that womanâ€””
Carla held the phone tightly in her hand, and she was still not at peace. She herself didn’t know why she was so upset. She didn’t know whether her expectations were lost or something else.
She only knows that her heart is a little confused.
She lowered her eyes, “Is there no clue?”
Did she think too much?
Jamie fell silent.
Neither of them hung up the phone, but neither did they speak.
The air is still and the other person’s breathing can be heard clearly.
A long time.
Jamie opened his mouth, “Tell meâ€¦” He hesitated, “Do you really want to know who the child’s father is?”
Carla lowered her head and stared at her feet. The light outside was scattered, and the shadows were shaking one by one. She asked herself in her heart, do you really want to know who the child’s father is?
Carla asked herself in her heart.
When did this idea come about?
It was when she found clues from Ryan that she had the urge to know.
“If the answer disappoints you, it’s not the person you thought, would you still want to know?” Jamie continued to ask.
One question after another, Carla didn’t know how to answer.
Perhaps she is also contradictory in her heart.
“Why don’t you speak?” Jamie asked a little bit.
There are thousands of emotions in this world.
They say familiarity breeds boredom.
She and Ryan live under the same roof, will they give birth to feelings?
This is why Jamie pressed her to ask her.
“I’m listening.” Carla interrupted him, fearing that he would say something she couldn’t answer.
This time here it is nighttime, Jamie is standing on the side of the road in a foreign country.
He lowered his head and looked at his shadow. In fact, he also wanted to know if the man that night was the person Carla suspected, Ryan.
The woman died and the hotel surveillance was deleted.
But he still found it. He took Carla’s photo and asked in the hotel. A waiter recognized her and told him clearly what happened that night.
That person is Ryan.
He didn’t want to admit it, or he didn’t want Carla to know.
Having a child is involved, even if Ryan doesnâ€™t like her, will he because of the childâ€”
He dare not think.
He didn’t want Carla to know.
He likes her and wants to take care of her.
Obviously, he met her first.
He met her when she was a child.
“Carla, I found the man that nightâ€¦” Jamie held the phone tightly.
Carla’s heart violently mentioned, and it got stuck in the throat.
Suddenly she was enveloped by a black shadow, she turned her head, the people came against the light, the profound facial features were hidden in the light, through the light covered by the flying dust, she could see who was standing behind her, and her eyes suddenly appeared nervous and alert.
But there was an inexplicable expectation.
Expect Jamie to tell the result of her conjecture.
“It is a local.” Jamie’s voice came through the microphone.
This answer was like a dull thunder exploded in Carla’s heart.
In other words, what she saw in Ryan was a coincidence.
Her guess was wrong?
“Carla are you listening?”
“I have something to do, I’ll hang up first.” Carla hung up the phone in a panic. She might be too panicked and the phone fell off and snapped.
She just wanted to bend over to pick it up. Ryan stooped to pick it up first. He looked at the number on the phone screen and squinted his eyes slightly, “Who is calling and making you so nervous?”
Carla pretended to be calm, “I’m not nervous, you suddenly appeared and scared me.”
Ryan smiled, he bent down and stared at the woman who was pretending to be calm, “Really?”
Carla’s back was chilled by him, and her throat was too tight to speak. At this moment, Samantha came over with the cut apple and relieved Carla’s encirclement.
“This apple is sweet and crisp. You can taste it.” Samantha put the apple on the table.
Carla quickly put aside Ryan’s gaze and went to insert the apple. It was really crispy, sweet, and juicy in her mouth. She inserted one and handed it to Ryan, “Taste it?”
Ryan lowered his eyes, did not move, just stared at her hand holding the apple.
Carla handed it to his lips again, and the apple juice touched his lips. It was cold but sweet.
Carla blinked, “It’s really sweet.”
Ryan bit it and glanced at her, “For your sake of being so sensible, please spare you this time.”
Don’t think he didn’t know that she was deliberately changing the subject.
Samantha smiled, quit the room wittily, and went outside to see people at work.
Carla pursed her lips and did not dare to refute. He chewed on the apple and unbuttoned his suit, threw it on the sofa, sat on the sofa, saw the piano there, and asked, “You can play the piano?”
Carla turned around, looked at the piano, and nodded, “I will, I haven’t touched it in a long time, I’m afraid my fingers are stiff.”
As she said, she looked down at her fingers.
Ryan’s gaze fell, her fingers were slender, her skin was fair, but her palms had calluses, and his brow wrinkled. He just wanted to reach for her hand, but she stood up and walked towards the piano.
She sat in front of the piano with her back to him, her fingers lightly falling on the keys, and a crisp sound came from the keys.
Crisp and sweet.
She squeezed her hand, looking for a feeling. Although she hadn’t touched it for a long time, she still had the courage to start after learning for many years.
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, placing her fingers gently on the keys.
When her fingers pressed the keys, the melodious tune slowly presented “Sorrow and Happiness”
This is the first song she has learned, and it is also her latest favorite.
The past scenes were presented in her mind, happy and sadâ€¦
Her life is short, but she has experienced too much.
Ryan condensed back, as if thinking about something.
Are the calluses on her hand from country A?
Is it painful to be abandoned by a father?
He was in a daze when he was suddenly interrupted by a cell phone ringtone. He seemed unhappy. This inappropriate ringtone and frowning brows made Carla seem to hear the sound and stopped her hand movement.
The air quieted down instantly.
The ringtone of the mobile phone is clearer.
Carla got up and walked over, wondering why he didn’t answer the phone.
When she walked over, she saw the name on the phone, Alma.
Carla sat down opposite him, “It’s Miss Tate, why don’t you pick it up?”
Ryan glanced at her, as if he disliked her for talking too much.
Of course, he didn’t want to pick up, so he didn’t pick up.
The caller was very patient. It kept ringing until he answered.
Carla smiled, “Afraid that I will hear you whispering? Then I won’t disturb youâ€””
After speaking, she stood up, and when she was about to leave, Ryan grabbed her wrist and pulled hard. Carla fell onto his thigh. She was about to move, but he grabbed her wa!st and clasped it tightly.
The other hand picked up the phoneâ€”â€”
