It took only about five days for Alyssa to set off from Rostenvel to find Tina.
It will take at least one or two days to travel from Rostenvel to here. In addition to the bad road conditions, it will definitely be difficult to walk on the road. It will take a little more time on the road.
If it takes two days to walk on the road, then Clifford’s departure time must be pushed forward at least two more days.
Karl set off on the second day after Alyssa set off, and arrived on the third day.
Based on this calculation, Clifford was out on the day Karl arrived and started to come here.
Being able to confirm that he is here in such a short period of time, and to find her, means that – Clifford is very likely to have been secretly paying attention to her every move.
She and Clifford lived for a period of time. Later, the two experienced a car accident together. Although it was a fateful friendship, Alyssa could feel that Clifford did not have a relationship between men and women.
A man pays attention to every move of a woman at any time. If he doesn’t have a relationship between men and women, he must have other purposes.
As for Clifford’s purpose, Alyssa is still more willing to think in the direction of goodwill.
After all, Clifford has always been helping her.
Although he appeared suddenly three years ago, he saved her.
Without him, she would have died long ago.
Alyssa asked him aloud: “The road outside was badly damaged. How did you get in?”
“Helicopter.” After Clifford finished speaking, he looked at her again: “It’s fine if you are fine.”
Alyssa was about to speak when she realized that the atmosphere was something wrong.
She turned her head and saw Karl staring at her coldly.
Alyssa shuddered, where did she provoke him?
She pursed her lips, sat down next to Karl, and when she turned her head to look, she found that Karl’s complexion seemed to have improved a bit, and then asked Clifford, “Have you had breakfast?”
Clifford glanced over her and Karl, and said, “I have eaten.”
Alyssa felt that the atmosphere was a little weird and didn’t know what to say, so she said in passing: “We haven’t eaten yet…”
At this moment, Karl, who had not spoken, suddenly said, “Mr. Dixon’s clinic is closed?”
Clifford’s expression stiffened for a few seconds before he said, “No, don’t know why Mr. Adams would ask?”
Karl sneered, and his low voice became a little colder than usual: “Mr. Dixon is too busy to care about other people’s wives. I thought it was because the clinic was closed and there was nothing to do.”
When Alyssa heard the word “wife”, she looked up at Karl in surprise.
Clifford was choked by Karl’s words for a long while.
He pulled the corners of his lips first, and showed a very far-fetched smile: “Thanks to Mr. Adams’ concern, my psychology clinic is very well opened. There are many old customers, but everyone wants to be bigger. If Mr. Adams wants to, you can introduce some customers to me, or Mr. Adams yourself, or you can take care of my business.”
When Clifford said later, his tone became more and more natural, as if he had made a business partner at dinner.
Alyssa felt that his last words seemed to have something special.
The smile on Karl’s face was deeper, and the aura on his body became more bitter: “I dare to come, do you dare to take it?”
“Mr. Adams can come to me. It is a trust in me and an honor for me. Even if I dare not answer, I have to answer it.” Clifford’s voice seemed a little excited.
Karl glanced at him and said nothing.
The conversation between the two men was full of the smell of gunpowder.
Seeing that Karl was no longer responding to him, Clifford turned his goal to Alyssa.
“Alyssa, are you going to leave after breakfast?”
As soon as he uttered his words, Karl also looked at her.
Karl’s expression was indifferent, he only glanced at her faintly, and then looked away.
He obviously didn’t say anything, but Alyssa felt that he was saying everything.
Clifford and Karl had a problem with each other, and each time they talked, they were tit for tat.
Although Alyssa felt a little sorry, she still found an excuse to tactfully refuse and said, “I’m afraid I can’t go with you. We still have friends who will come here. We will wait for them together.”
Clifford noticed that Alyssa was talking about “us”, not “me and Karl.”
His eyes flashed, and then he smiled faintly: “Well, I’ll be here with you and wait for your friends to come over.”
After he finished speaking, he turned his head to look at Karl, and asked and answered, “Alyssa’s friend is also Mr. Adams’ friend, right? I believe Mr. Adams’ friend should not be slow.”
Even Alyssa could hear the provocation in Clifford’s words, let alone Karl.
She didn’t know why Clifford had deliberately said such things to provoke Karl, but now is not the time to ask these questions.
She turned her head to look at Karl’s expression and found that there was no change in his face, and she was slightly relieved.
She was afraid that Karl’s temper would come up, and he would fight Clifford directly.
If the two really fight, no one here can stop them both.
Moreover, she will be in a dilemma.
Uncle’s voice came from the next room. Alyssa turned her head and saw that the uncle had already walked to the door of the hall. He was holding a bowl of fried vegetables in one hand and a bowl of kimchi in the other.
He took two bowls of vegetables and walked straight to Clifford, put them on the table, frowned and glanced at Clifford, turned around and took a stool, and sat down on the side.
The uncle usually lives alone, and there are just three chairs in the main room. When they eat these days, they happen to eat around the table with one chair.
Uncle’s expression just now seemed to blame Clifford for taking his place.
The uncle is a stubborn person, and may be very dissatisfied that Clifford came into his room without saying hello.
Alyssa quickly got up and put her chair in front of the dining table: “I’ll go to the kitchen to serve food.”
“Yeah.” The uncle nodded, then turned his head and glanced at Clifford.
Even if Clifford was sluggish, he would come here in vain. The old man frowned just now to see what his look meant.
Alyssa brought two bowls of porridge to the kitchen, and when she turned around, she saw Karl also coming in.
The kitchen door was a bit small. When Karl entered the door, he bent slightly, took the two bowls of porridge in Alyssa’s hand, and turned around and left.
Alyssa turned around and took another bowl, followed behind Karl.
So Clifford saw such a scene.
Alyssa and Karl sat at a wooden table that was too old to see the original color. Together with an old countryman, they were eating porridge with invisible pickles and a bowl of green vegetables.
Not to mention Clifford, even the subordinates who came to rescue people with him were full of surprise in their eyes.
What is the identity of Karl?
That was Boss who was born with a golden spoon and grew up among the top giants.
He can even go to the countryside and eat in such a place.
It’s no surprise that Alyssa has seen a lot these days.
Karl picked up a chopstick pickle and accidentally caught a small green onion. He frowned and tried to pick it out. Alyssa quickly pushed the bowl over: “Don’t throw it, give it to me.”
Karl frowned and put the shallots into her bowl.
He didn’t know how to raise the problem, onions, shallots, and anything related to shallots, he would not eat.
This scene fell in Clifford’s eyes, and his eyes couldn’t help but get a little deeper.
He felt that he was sitting here a lot.
Karl must think he was so stupid.
Clifford laughed at himself, stood up, and took the people out.
Alyssa heard the footsteps, raised her head, looked at Clifford and the others with a puzzled face, and muttered, “Why are you out?”
Karl put a shallot in her bowl: “Eat your meal.”
Alyssa moved her lips, but finally did not speak.
She ate less than Karl and the others, and was full soon.
She took the bowl into the kitchen and went out to find Clifford.
Karl and uncle were still sitting at the dining table, looking out from the hall, they could just see Alyssa and Clifford standing together and talking.
Two people stand so close to keep warm?
Is it so funny talking with Clifford?
Every time Karl looked at it more, the expression on his face became heavier.
The uncle glanced at him, then looked out the door, his tone was rather curious: “That young man, come to grab your wife?”
Karl said blankly: “He is not worthy to snatch from me.”
“Since you know that he is unworthy, why do you still have this expression of fighting with him?” The uncle shook his head: “Don’t be so impatient, Alyssa is such a good girl, she’s committed to you, and you don’t want to be a soldier… …”
Karl was silent for a moment, and said coldly: “She is a half-hearted woman.”
She want to remarry him and go to the entertainment news with other men. There is also Clifford who cares about her so much.
He couldn’t see where this woman was struggling.
Alyssa stood next to Clifford, pondered it, and said, “Although don’t know why you deliberately provoke Karl, I am very grateful for you to come to me.”
“Deadly friendship, this is nothing.” Clifford laughed, looked down at the ground, and slowly said.
Alyssa pursed her lips and stopped talking.
Mainly because what she wants to say is not suitable to be said here.
After a while, she said aloud: “Back to Rostenvel, I will invite you to dinner.”
Clifford agreed very simply: “Okay.”
Alyssa also smiled: “A word is settled.”
“The sky is finally clearing up.” Uncle’s voice came.
Alyssa looked up, and she saw the sun appearing in the sky.
It has been raining for so long in the past few days. This is the first time they have seen the sun.
At this moment, there was a sound of footsteps behind the house.
Alyssa turned her head, and saw Smith leading people hurrying over from the house.
Seeing so many people in front of him at once, a flash of surprise flashed in his eyes. After scanning around, his eyes remained on Alyssa.
He walked quickly to Alyssa and called respectfully: “Madam.”
Alyssa smiled, and her hunch was correct.
Smith looked at Alyssa and saw that she was okay. After a sigh of relief, he asked, “Where is Boss?”
Alyssa glanced at the hall and came to a conclusion: “He should be washing the dishes inside.”
Smith followed her gaze, and his gaze fell on the simple two-story blue tiled house: “…”
“I’ll take you there.” After Alyssa said, she went straight to the kitchen.
Smith had to follow her behind.
Karl was washing the dishes in the kitchen.
He was standing in front of the stove, washing the dishes slowly with his sleeves rolled up, handling the documents as seriously as usual.
He was wearing a rumpled shirt and his hair was a bit messy, which was far from the usual Karl who was very particular about food and clothing.
Smith didn’t dare to recognize him, so he hesitated and called out, “Sir!”
“Wait a moment, I will clean the bowl again.” Karl didn’t seem to be surprised at his arrival. He didn’t even glance at Smith, so he poured out the dirty water in the pot, refilled the water, and put the bowl again. Cleaning it again.
Then, he turned his head to look at Smith.
Seeing the face, Smith was sure that this was his boss.
He nodded slightly: “Sir, the helicopter is parked on the lawn behind, you can leave at any time.”
Karl took a towel and wiped his hands, and asked him, “How about office?”
Smith seriously reported the situation to him: “Everything is fine, they all think you just went on a business trip abroad, there are no other problems, just some piled up documents.”
“Yeah.” Karl replied faintly, then put the towel back on the stove and looked out the door.
Outside the door, the uncle was squatting on a rock with a pipe. Clifford took a lighter to help him light it. The uncle just took a look at him, and took out his matchbox and lit the cigarette.
He didn’t know what Clifford said to him. He raised his eyebrows and moved his lips. He didn’t know what he said.
Karl retracted his gaze and asked Smith: “Have you brought money?”
“Yes.” Smith understood the deep meaning of Karl’s words and took out a kraft paper bag.
When he came to such a place, he naturally didn’t bring cash to spare. In addition to the cash in the paper bag, he also brought a lot.
Karl took the kraft paper bag and walked towards the uncle.
“Karl!” Alyssa knew what he was going to do, and quickly grabbed him: “Uncle will be angry.”
The uncle was with a stubborn temper. Although he lived relatively poorly, Alyssa knew that what he lacked was not money, but company.
She could feel that the uncle was very happy for the few days she and Karl stayed here.
“He will not.”
Karl glanced at Alyssa before leaving.
When the uncle saw Karl coming over, his raised eyebrows lowered.
Karl put the wallet in uncle’s hand, and didn’t know what was said, the uncle fell silent for a while, nodded and accepted it.
Alyssa looked surprised, and asked Smith, who was also surprised: “Mr. Smith, based on your understanding of Karl, what do you think he said to the uncle?”
“If it’s in Rostenveltze market, in Boss’s villa, I can guess what Boss said…”
There was a pause in Smith, and when he looked up, he saw a spider web on the roof, and faintly said: “Boss who has lived in such a place for a few days, I can’t guess what he will say.”
