Clifford paused when he heard the words, and said, “I went out this afternoon.”
Alyssa nodded, thinking of something, and then asked, “Is there something important? I forgot to bring my mobile phone.”
With Clifford’s temperament, something very important must have happened so that he forgot to bring his mobile phone.
When she called Clifford before, she automatically got hung up after the first call, and then hung up after the second call.
If Clifford forgets to take the phone out, it will automatically shut down when the battery is out.
Clifford smiled and said, “It’s not very important, it’s already taken care of.”
Although he was smiling, there was an indescribable sense of alienation in his expression and tone, which made Alyssa a little uncomfortable.
She reached out and touched Karl, reminding him that they can go back now.
Karl leaned on the back of the sofa, as if the old god was in his own home.
What’s the matter with this man, is he still addicted to being in Clifford’s house?
Alyssa gave him a look.
Karl glanced at her faintly, then raised his eyes to Clifford: “Is there any coffee?”
The tone was naturally like ordering coffee in a cafe.
Clifford’s pupils shrank slightly, seemingly impatient, but he still got up and went to make coffee for Karl.
When he turned around, Alyssa asked him in a low voice: “What do you want to do? We should go back.”
“Everything is here, so just sit a little longer before leaving, what’s the rush?”
Karl’s words sounded at first, as if he was talking angry, but his tone was the same as usual, and he couldn’t hear the feeling of anger at all.
Alyssa couldn’t figure out what he was thinking at the moment, and didn’t bother to think about it anymore, stood up and walked to Clifford.
“Clifford, there is no need to trouble. We are going back now.” Alyssa didn’t know why she had been reluctant to leave, so she had to talk about this and other aspects.
Clifford glanced back at her, then continued to lower his head to make coffee: “No trouble, it will be done soon.”
He is making coffee, so the time is a bit slow.
“Mr. Dixon doesn’t say it’s troublesome, so just have a cup of coffee before leaving.” She didn’t know when he came over.
Which person who doesn’t work overtime drinks coffee at night?
Alyssa felt that Karl had deliberately found faults, but she had no way to control him in such matters.
Clifford didn’t have any special reaction after hearing Karl’s words, he just smiled.
Finally, after Clifford had made the coffee, Karl drank a half cup before leaving with Alyssa.
When Clifford’s room door closed, Alyssa gave Karl a look angrily, “Look at how you can sleep tonight.”
After she finished speaking, she walked towards the elevator first.
When Alyssa walked to the elevator entrance, she found that the elevator had just stopped on the first floor above. She pressed the elevator and quickly got off.
The two entered the elevator together again.
After the elevator door closed, the door of Clifford’s house suddenly opened again.
Clifford stood by the door and looked at the empty elevator entrance. His eyes were full of complex and indistinguishable emotions, with a hint of sharpness, as if he could see the people inside through the elevator door.
Alyssa and Karl stood in the elevator.
While the elevator was running, Alyssa found that Karl had always had that thoughtful expression, and she didn’t know what he was thinking.
Alyssa stared at him for a while, and said aloud: “You are a little weird tonight.”
Since Karl entered Clifford’s house, he behaved a little strangely.
Alyssa originally thought that when Karl asked to go in and sit down, he would quarrel with Clifford again, but instead of quarreling with Clifford, he was very quiet and barely spoke.
At this point, it is very strange.
Before Karl saw Clifford, the two of them basically refused to give in to each other. Today, both of them behaved very calmly.
Karl turned his head and glanced at her, with a very indifferent tone: “Only I am strange?”
Alyssa looked at his dark eyes and thought for a moment, but was not sure about the deep meaning of his words, so she asked tentatively: “You mean Clifford is weird?”
Karl reached out and clicked on her face: “It seems that this place is genuine.”
Is he scolding her in a disguised form for having no brain?
Alyssa slapped his hands away, so angry that she wanted to kick him in both feet.
But she knew that now is not the time to care about this.
“Actually, I also think that Clifford seems a little weird, but I can’t tell what is weird.” After Alyssa said, she fixedly looked at Karl, waiting for him to say something.
Karl would ask her back like this, he must have found something.
She had been staying with Clifford before, so she has a reasonable explanation.
She was sure that Karl had discovered something.
When the elevator reached the first floor, Karl walked straight out.
Alyssa quickly followed, and asked him, “Karl, did you find something?”
Karl didn’t say anything, so she had to take the initiative to ask him.
Karl’s tone was a little loose: “It’s nothing, just talk casually.”
Alyssa pursed her lips: “You…”
Fortunately, she thought that he really found something.
Alyssa passed him, got in the car first, and drove away.
Before Karl got into the car, he looked back at the building where Clifford was, before bending down and getting into the car.
When the two drove back to the villa one after another, it was already very late.
The servant on duty opened the door for the two of them, and Alyssa came in and asked, “Grace is asleep?”
The servant replied: “The little lady fell asleep very early.”
Alyssa went upstairs, took a look at Grace’s room, and then returned to the master bedroom.
Karl was standing in front of the bed and untie his tie. Hearing the sound of the door opening, he raised his eyes and glanced at the door, then took off his tie, took off his coat and went to the bathroom.
The next day.
Since I came back yesterday and slept a little late last night, Alyssa was a little uneasy, sitting at the table, peeling eggs for Grace while yawning.
She handed the peeled egg to Grace, stretched out her hand to caress her forehead and yawned again, tears coming out.
At this moment, Karl, who had been sitting quietly across from her, suddenly asked, “What did you do with Clifford yesterday afternoon?”
When Alyssa heard Karl mentioning the name, she became a little wary of her condition.
When Karl saw her not speaking, his tone was a little dangerous: “You can’t even ask?”
After spending time with him for a long time, Alyssa became immune to his tone of voice, but felt that the tone was normal.
“Because I saw Clifford in Best Day, I called him and thought his reaction was a bit strange, so I went to him. After I went…”
After hearing Alyssa’s words, Karl frowned slightly: “You mean, you saw Clifford in Best Day yesterday at noon, but when you called him, his reaction was a little abnormal, and then you went to him?”
“Yes, he was not there when I went to his clinic in the afternoon to look for him.” Alyssa pursed her lips and said, “I just asked his assistant by the way, but his assistant said that Clifford’s lunch was ordered her from a takeaway.”
After Alyssa finished speaking, seeing Karl still thinking, she couldn’t guess what he was thinking.
She expressed the question in her heart: “So I was thinking, is it possible that the Clifford I saw at Best Day yesterday noon is just a person who looks exactly like Clifford?”
“If it’s just a simple person who looks exactly the same as Clifford…” Karl suddenly paused when he said that, and then added the rest of the words completely, but his tone was a little worse than the previous one.
“Then why doesn’t he tell you directly on the phone?”
Alyssa was shocked, yes, she didn’t expect this.
She just felt a little puzzled in her heart, but she didn’t analyze it carefully.
“Therefore, the’Clifford’ I saw in Best Day is really just a person who looks like him, and this person who looks like him is most likely his twin brother, and he intends to conceal this…”
Karl curled his lips and revealed a seemingly non-existent smile: “It’s really hard for you to think of this.
Alyssa glared at him and continued to think about her own business.
If that person is really Clifford’s twin brother, then he will definitely go to Clifford.
Yesterday when she was in Best Day, the “Clifford” she saw was wearing black clothes. When she and Karl went to Clifford’s house last night, he was also wearing black home clothes.
Moreover, Clifford’s house is a bit messy.
Black home clothes, the neatness of things at home, point to one direction, that is…
Alyssa raised her head suddenly and looked at Karl with a deep tone: “The person we saw at Clifford’s house last night is not Clifford at all!”
Karl leaned back in the chair, tilted his head to look at her, and said nothing.
Although he didn’t say anything, Alyssa could already tell from his expression that Karl had seen early in the morning that the person at Clifford’s house yesterday was not Clifford himself.
“Why didn’t you tell me?” Alyssa grabbed her hair irritably, “Clifford must have something wrong, otherwise why didn’t he appear last night?”
Karl watched her talking to herself coldly, without saying a word.
Alyssa turned her head and saw Grace looking at her ignorantly.
She touched Grace’s face, smiled and asked softly, “Are you full?”
“Full.” Grace nodded and twisted to get out of the chair.
Alyssa supported her and helped her get off the chair: “Let’s go out and play.”
Grace went out with her front feet, and Alyssa couldn’t sit still behind.
She stood up: “No, I can afford to go to Clifford’s psychological clinic.”
After she finished speaking, she pulled her chair away and walked out, and Karl did not stop her either.
Alyssa drove to Clifford’s psychological clinic.
When she arrived, the door was wide open, but when she walked in, she found it was deserted.
It’s just opened in the morning, and it’s normal that no one comes.
The lady at the front desk saw Alyssa and smiled at her: “Miss Alyssa, came here so early?”
Alyssa asked anxiously: “Where is doctor Dixon?”
“Doctor Dixon called us last night and said that he was going to a foreign country temporarily, and he didn’t know when he would be back. We came today to do sanitation, and we will receive the patients who had made an appointment before.”
The lady at the front desk finished speaking and looked at the wall clock on the wall again: “Dr. Dixon should have already boarded the plane at this time.”
Alyssa felt a little in her heart. After knowing that the’Clifford’ she saw yesterday might not be Clifford himself, she did not believe that this would be Clifford’s own arrangement.
It must have been made by someone who looks a lot like Clifford.
As for what his purpose is, where he wants to get Clifford to go is unknown.
Alyssa’s face changed slightly and asked, “Do you know which flight he took?”
“don’t know, he seems to have booked the tickets himself. We don’t know.” Seeing that Alyssa’s expression was wrong, the lady at the front desk asked, “Did something happen?”
“It’s okay, you should be busy, I will leave.” Alyssa turned around and left in a hurry.
When she got into the car, she patted the steering wheel hard, and muttered, “Karl!”
Alyssa took a deep breath, full of anger, and drove to Adams’.
After several front desks of Adams’ were beaten, now seeing Alyssa respectfully: “Madam.”
Alyssa looked at no one, walked straight to the elevator entrance, entered the elevator and directly pressed the floor button on the top floor.
When Smith saw Alyssa, he was stunned for a moment before he realized: “Young lady?”
“Where is Karl?” Alyssa asked Smith with a cold face.
A shrewd person like Smith knows that things are unusual by looking at Alyssa’s face.
“Sir is in a meeting right now, Madam, would you like to go to the CEO’s office and wait for him first?” Seeing Alyssa’s annoyance he wanted to take her to the office to rest for a while, and wait until Karl opened. At the end of the meeting, her anger might have disappeared for the most part.
He doesn’t know what happened to these two people, but it is better to have more than one thing, and less quarreling is always good.
Alyssa stopped and repeated: “Meeting?”
“Yes.” Smith knew that Alyssa was not the kind of unreasonable person who made trouble, thinking she would listen to her own opinions.
But obviously, he still miscalculated Alyssa’s anger this time.
This time Alyssa was not only angry that Karl hadn’t told her what he had guessed, but even more angry was Karl’s attitude.
“I see, I’ll go find him myself.” After Alyssa said, she pushed Smith away and walked straight to the meeting room.
Although she has never worked at Adams’, she has been here so many times and knows where Adams’ meeting room is.
“Madam! Let’s talk about anything after he finishes the meeting!” Smith still wanted to stop her.
Alyssa sneered: “Wait for him to finish the meeting? Why should I wait for him? Why should he do whatever he wants every time?”
When Smith heard this, he was startled.
He felt it, this time, the contradiction between the two people seemed to be greater than every time before.
Although he knew he couldn’t stop Alyssa, he still tried to persuade her, after all, this was his duty.
