But Alyssa didn’t listen to Smith’s words at all, and rushed to the door of the meeting room and pushed open the door.
It was full of people, discussing things.
Alyssa’s sudden move attracted the attention of everyone inside.
The meeting room, which had a somewhat solemn atmosphere, became abnormally quiet because of Alyssa’s sudden intrusion, as if a needle dropped on the ground and could be heard.
Everyone turned to look at Alyssa, and some of them didn’t even know her.
When Karl heard the sound of pushing the door, he was a little impatient, but when he turned his head and saw that it was Alyssa, his eyes flashed slightly, he stood up and walked towards Alyssa.
Alyssa didn’t say much, turned around and went to Karl’s CEO’s office. Karl followed her casually.
Smith entered to address the aftermath.
“Sorry guys, the meeting is suspended.”
Someone asked Smith: “Mr. Smith, who was this woman just now?”
The people in the conference room who didn’t know Alyssa were the Adams’s seniors, and some young people naturally knew Alyssa.
Not waiting to speak out Smith, someone voluntarily replied: “This woman seems to be the CEO’s ex-wife. She was on the news some time ago…”
Hearing this, everyone looked at each other and didn’t say much.
Smith left the meeting room, walked to the door of Karl’s office and stood there for a while, shook his head and left.
When the two arrived at the office, Karl sat down on the sofa.
After he sat down, seeing Alyssa still standing there, he pointed to the position beside him: “Sit down and say something.”
Alyssa didn’t sit down, only sneered, and said coldly: “You saw it last night, it’s not Clifford.”
She mentioned Clifford straightforwardly. Needless to say, Karl knew that she was talking about the two going to Clifford’s house last night.
“Yes, I was at Clifford’s house last night and I could tell that the man who received us was not Clifford himself.”
Karl admitted so frankly that he could not see a trace of guilty conscience.
Alyssa heating gritted her teeth: “Karl, will you be happy as long as Clifford has an accident? I tell you, if Clifford has an accident, I will blame myself, and I will remember him all life. He saved me and I lay down. During the three years in the hospital bed, he was taking care of me!”
She didn’t know where she was irritating Karl. The original sloppy expression on his face was lost in an instant, his expression was cold, and there was a cold atmosphere around him.
The next moment, he stood up abruptly, and uttered two words in a heavy tone: “Enough!”
Out of instinctive fear of the angry Karl, Alyssa trembled slightly.
She clenched her fist silently, stood in front of him, raised her chin slightly, showing no signs of subduing.
An angry look appeared in Karl’s eyes. He seemed to be very angry, even his chest was violently showing ups and downs, and the volume of his speech unconsciously increased a lot.
“Alyssa, I don’t need you to remind me time and time again. When you were lying in the hospital bed for three years, another person was taking care of you, and I…”
He paused when he said that, a painful look flashed in his eyes, as if he was being pressed by countless emotions-he was a little breathless, and he took a deep breath and continued speaking in a low voice. : “But I’m at the Adams’ family, and I’m Boss of the Adams’ comfortably.”
Alyssa was taken aback, unable to react for a while.
There was also deathly silence in the office.
After a while, Alyssa moved her lips and found her own voice. Her tone was not as cold as before, but she sighed, “I didn’t blame you.”
“But I blame myself!” Karl still looked at her fixedly.
Even when his emotions were so fluctuating, the expression on his face was still very controlled, so that people could not see what he was thinking at a glance.
Alyssa hadn’t thought about it, he was brooding about it.
When she left Clifford’s place, when she first came into contact with Karl, Karl had no memory of her. Although he had a good impression of her.
At that time, Karl, even if she knew that she had been lying in the hospital bed for three years, and almost couldn’t wake up, he didn’t seem to have much feeling.
Later when his memory was chaotic, his attitude towards her was even worse.
Until later, he remembered something…
There are many accidents in life, she has never blamed him, and she will not wonder if Karl will blame herself.
So when he first remembered some memories of their being together, didn’t he take the initiative to tell her?
He who had recovered half of his memory had feelings for her, so he knew that she would feel distressed, sad, and blame him after lying in the hospital bed for three years.
This kind of emotion stayed in his heart for a long time, and it deteriorated, even Clifford hated him.
Because Clifford did what he should have done.
He never felt that there was something invisible between Alyssa and Clifford, but he couldn’t face that he was not by her side when Alyssa needed him most.
Every time he heard Alyssa mention Clifford, every time Alyssa went to find Clifford, it was a reminder of how much he failed.
Even his own woman can’t be protected well.
Every time he thinks of these things, he feels that his heart is bleeding.
He is a man who is not good at expressing, and his mind is unfathomable. These things he does not want people to know, as long as he does not say them, no one can guess.
“Karl…” Alyssa called him, but didn’t know what to say.
The smart and powerful man who was almost omnipotent stood in front of her with his fists clenched, his anger and joyless face, half self-deprecating and half compassionate.
His back is very straight, but it makes people feel like a cock that has lost a fight, losing his usual sharpness and confidence, like a lost child.
Somewhat at a loss, but also distressing.
There was a slight acid in Alyssa’s heart.
She walked two steps forward, walked to Karl, and stretched out her hand to touch him.
However, when her hand was about to touch Karl, Karl took a step back, avoiding the touch.
Alyssa looked up at him suddenly.
Karl pulled the corners of his lips, and showed a deep smile, so that his always solemn eyes were bent.
He was originally a handsome man, and he rarely laughed. Even if he occasionally smiles happily, it is only a flash in the pan. Alyssa actually likes to watch him laugh.
Because his mind is always hidden too deeply, both sadness and joy are pressed-in the deepest part of his heart, not to be spied on.
But at this moment, his smile made Alyssa particularly uncomfortable.
Alyssa would rather see him angry, unreasonable like an angry lion, and don’t want to see him smiling like this.
He is Karl.
He is so smart and so confident.
After his mother was killed when he was eleven years old, he has been searching for the truth about that mother’s murder.
At the age of eleven, he was still a child. Until the age of twenty-six, he had grown into an excellent man who was full of emotions and had everything under control.
He shouldn’t be like this because of her.
If there are people in this world who are born to be looked up to and can shine, then Karl is that kind of person.
At least in the eyes of Alyssa, he was such a man who would shine when standing in a crowd.
Karl smiled and asked her, her voice softer than ever: “Are you disappointed in me?”
“No.” After Alyssa said, she felt that these simple words were too shallow, and quickly continued: “I won’t be disappointed, I didn’t have it before, and I won’t be. You are in my heart, you are the most amazing man in the world.”
“The most powerful man in the world?” Karl laughed, his voice lowered, “I’m not good at all.”
After he finished speaking, he turned and walked to the French window.
The floor of the CEO’s office is very high. From here, the cars and pedestrians below are all the size of ants.
Alyssa was a little worried about him, and wanted to follow.
Karl turned around suddenly: “Don’t come here again.”
Alyssa stopped and looked up at him.
The two of them stood face-to-face at a distance of more than three meters. The distance was far enough without any sense of int!macy.
Karl seemed to have calmed down, and the expression on his face had become consistently indifferent again, looking impeccable.
He said unhurriedly: “Clifford grew up in a foreign country when he was a child. The man who looks exactly like him is most likely a brother who is related to him by blood. Now this time…”
As he said, he raised his wrist and looked at his watch: “They should already be on the plane going abroad.”
Karl was very thoughtful. Since he could guess that the man last night was not Clifford, he could naturally guess that man’s next plan.
“Why did he take Clifford out of the country with compulsory lead?” If Clifford was voluntary, it wouldn’t take that man so much effort.
Karl groaned for a while, then slowly said, “Naturally, it is because Clifford is unwilling to go back.”
“In other words, when he brought Clifford back, he must let Clifford do what he didn’t want to do.” Alyssa shook her head: “I can’t ignore Clifford’s matter.”
When Karl heard the words, his tone fell a bit: “I have sent someone to investigate.”
“Yeah.” Alyssa responded, not knowing what to say.
She observed Karl and found that his face could no longer find the previous emotions.
It seemed that the man who was at a loss before her was not Karl.
She knew that Karl’s heart was very strong, but sometimes he wanted to take the horns himself, but he didn’t give others a chance to pull him. What could others do?
This matter cannot be rushed.
And Karl looked okay, and probably didn’t want to mention the matter again.
The two held a stalemate for a while, and Alyssa asked him, “Would you like to go home for dinner at noon? I will not go to Mattie’s studio today. I will cook at home.”
Karl moved his lips. The shape of his lips looked like he was about to say “Yes”, but when he spoke, he said, “No.”
Alyssa nodded: “Then I will go back first.”
After she finished speaking, seeing Karl just standing there in silence, she had to turn around and go out.
As soon as the office door was closed, Karl clenched his fist and slammed a punch against the French window. He stood in front of the French window without moving for a long time.
Alyssa left the Adams building and immediately drove back to where she rented the house.
She suddenly remembered that when she left Clifford’s place before, she also took the key to the room.
Later, she also mentioned this to Clifford. Clifford jokingly told her at the time that if she couldn’t contact him, she could still take the key to his house to see if he was dead.
Unexpectedly, this set of keys really played a role.
As soon as Alyssa arrived in the house she rented, she began to search for the set of keys.
There were too many drawers in the cabinet, and Alyssa searched for it for almost half an hour before finding the set of keys in an unremarkable locker.
She took the set of keys and drove to Clifford’s house.
At the gate of the community, when she passed by the security room, the security greeted her: “Are you here again for Mr. Dixon? He left with his friend early this morning, don’t you know?”
Alyssa guessed that the “his friend” mentioned by the security guard might be Clifford himself.
She quickly calmed down her emotions and said with a smile: “I know, he called me when he left, and asked me to help him look at the flowers and plants raised at home, and help him water them.”
Alyssa made this excuse very naturally, and the security guard did not think too much, and nodded: “That’s not…”
“Then I will go in first.”
Alyssa bid farewell to the security, and walked directly to the house where Clifford lived.
When she reached the door of Clifford’s house, she directly took out the key to open the door.
The hall looked the same as when she came yesterday, but Clifford’s bedroom door was wide open.
She walked quickly into Clifford’s bedroom and saw the mess in the room, which seemed to have traces of fighting.
There was a mess in the room, you can imagine how fierce fighting took place here.
Alyssa recalled the situation last night and kicked the door of the room with anger.
Last night, she felt that “Clifford” was a little abnormal, but she didn’t think so much.
How could she have thought that the “Clifford” that she saw in Best Day at noon would pretend to be the real Clifford in such a short period of time, and still pretend to be under her nose.
After all, she is still to blame.
If she could keep a little bit more thoughtful at that time, maybe Clifford would not be taken away.
As for Karl…
Alyssa sighed slightly.
Alyssa looked around in the room again and confirmed her and Karl’s guess that Clifford was indeed taken away by force.
Clifford himself is also a very smart person. It is not easy to take him away easily, which shows that Clifford still has a certain degree of trust in that man, and that man must want Clifford to do what he does not want to do. Only then will Clifford be taken away forcibly.
As for what it was, Alyssa didn’t know.
She only knows that she owes Clifford, and she is in charge of Clifford!
