Soon, Daisy came out with water and a plate of pastries.
She put the cakes on the coffee table and handed the water to Alyssa: “I saw that there were some snacks, so I brought a little bit over. I made this yesterday, and master thinks it is very good.”
Alyssa took a bite, it was not very sweet, but a bit sticky.
Lifting her eyes to see Daisy looking at her expectantly, she said, “It’s really good, your craftsmanship is really good.”
“I will also make other pastries. If you stay here for a while, I will cook them for you.” Daisy smiled and narrowed her eyes, looking innocent and cute.
But she can’t numb Alyssa anymore by pretending to be innocent.
Observed this day, in this villa, apart from a servant who manages the courtyard and a servant who cleans, there is only Daisy.
Although Daisy was working as a servant, she was different from other servants. Compared with other servants, Daisy obviously had a higher position.
She told Alyssa before that she was adopted by the same adoptive father like Martin, so Martin did not treat her as a servant.
Alyssa grabbed the thoughts in her eyes, and said in a serious tone: “With Daisy’s good craftsmanship, I really don’t want to go when I live? I’m still worried that staying for a long time will be offensive.”
Daisy smiled more happily, and held Alyssa excitedly and said, “Why? There are no people in this villa. It’s hard to get guests coming. It’s too late to welcome me!”
Alyssa glanced at the hands between the two of them. Daisy looked frightened, and put her hands back in embarrassment: “I’m sorry, I’m so happy.”
“It’s okay.” Alyssa took her hand back and said with a smile: “It’s getting late, let’s go to bed first.”
Daisy nodded: “Okay, you go up first, I’ll clean up here.”
After Alyssa finished speaking, she went upstairs and returned to her room.
In the hall downstairs, when Daisy was packing the things, she heard footsteps coming from the stairs.
She looked up and saw Martin was standing on the stairs looking at her, his face pale.
Daisy just glanced at him, then withdrew her gaze, as if she hadn’t seen him.
Martin just glanced at her deeply, then turned upstairs again.
After Alyssa returned to the room, she was half asleep and half awake.
This directly caused her to get two big panda eyes when she got up the next day.
She and Martin met at the dinner table.
In her life, apart from having breakfast with Karl, all she has left is Clifford, and now she has to add another one Martin.
He had a face almost exactly the same as Clifford, but Alyssa’s knowledge of him was limited to his name, Martin Dixon, who was Clifford’s twin brother.
To her, Martin was a familiar stranger.
Martin obsrved her for a while, and said aloud: “It seems you didn’t sleep well last night.”
Alyssa opened her mouth, and said, “Your house has bad ambiance.”
Martin suddenly laughed and said, “Isn’t it because you sleepwalked last night?”
“Sleepwalking?” Alyssa’s heart groaned, instinctively what Martin knew.
“I’m a life-saving and cautious person. I don’t even know how many pinhole cameras are installed in this villa.” For this reason, Alyssa would be a fool if she didn’t understand. .
Yesterday, she noticed whether there was a camera installed in the villa, because she did not see the camera, she went upstairs to investigate the situation in the villa last night.
But she still thinks of Martin too simple, and even installed a pinhole camera.
She came out so soberly last night to listen to sounds from room to room, would Martin think she was sleepwalking?
Regardless of whether Martin really thought she was sleepwalking or faked that she was sleepwalking, he revealed to her an important message that the villa was full of pinhole cameras.
From now on, she can no longer act rashly.
Daisy came out of the kitchen with breakfast.
She walked back and forth several times, and finally brought out two cups of green vegetable juice. She put the two cups of vegetable juice in front of Alyssa and Martin respectively.
Then, she urged Martin: “Sir, you have a taste.”
Martin took a sip from the cup, and his expression turned slightly.
Seeing this, Alyssa picked it up and took a bite. It smelled of fresh vegetables, and it was a bit bitter.
“Is it delicious?” Daisy asked quickly when she saw Alyssa drinking.
Alyssa pursed her lips: “It’s a bit bitter.”
“I have added bitter gourd in it. It is too hard to find bitter gourd this season, but recently, master needs to calm down…” After Daisy finished, she said with some annoyance: “Calmness doesn’t seem to be useful. I live abroad. It’s been too long, and many vocabulary can’t be used…”
Alyssa smiled on the surface, but in her heart she felt that Daisy had something to say.
Let Martin calm down?
What to calm down?
Alyssa raised her head to look at Martin, and saw him frowning and pushing the glass of vegetable juice far away.
Upon seeing this, Daisy quickly persuaded: “Sir, this is what I squeezed out so hard, it is very nutritious, you have to drink it.”
“I don’t want to drink.” Martin said, looking up at her: “Since you squeezed it, you can drink it yourself.”
“Sir, you…” Daisy seemed to be frightened by Martin’s words, and didn’t know what to say for a while.
Clifford slammed the fork in his hand onto the dining table, with a hint of anger in his voice: “If you don’t want to drink, go, get out!”
Daisy seemed terrified, bit her lip, and picked up the glass of vegetable juice: “Sir, don’t drive me away, I’ll drink it.”
After she finished speaking, she picked it up and drank it all.
Martin didn’t look at her, and said directly: “Go out when you finish drinking, don’t be an eyesore here.”
Daisy went out with aggrieved expression.
Alyssa watched a good show, raised her eyebrows and looked at Martin and said, “Clifford is much more gentle than you.”
“He?” Martin looked disdainful: “Don’t compare me with that hypocritical man.”
“Cough…” Alyssa almost choked on her saliva.
What is a hypocritical man?
“You say Clifford is hypocritical?” Alyssa sneered, “Anyway! He is at least better than you!”
A trace of anger appeared on Martin’s face, and he coldly called her name: “Alyssa!”
Alyssa was completely indifferent to his anger, she glanced at the door of the restaurant, and then said to Martin: “He called me last night, where is he?”
Martin’s expression changed slightly: “You said Clifford?”
Alyssa put her hands on the dining table, leaning forward slightly, “Where is he!”
Martin just laughed, did not answer her question, stood up and walked out.
Alyssa hurriedly followed, and stopped in front of him: “At least, you let me see Clifford, you have not let me see Clifford, and you have dragged me here not to get up. What is the purpose?”
From Clifford’s words, she could infer that Martin didn’t seem to be malicious to her either. At this time, there were only two of them, so she dared to pick out the words.
Martin looked down at her, didn’t know what he was thinking, in short, did not speak immediately.
He doesn’t wear a lot of clothes, a shirt on the inside and a suit jacket on the outside, but he doesn’t wear a shirt like Clifford with the top button buttoned up. Clifford is a psychologist, and he wears a suit and tie when he goes to work. , It looks very correct and convincing.
Martin looked more casual than he was. The two buttons on the top of his shirt were not buttoned. Alyssa looked up at him. Suddenly, she vaguely saw a scar in the skin exposed at his neckline. .
She remembered that when Clifford first looked for her three years ago, there were a lot of scars on his body. Later, when he was hospitalized, Alyssa had seen it.
Martin also has scars on his body?
The two brothers were not adopted by because their parents died unexpectedly when they were teenagers?
Logically speaking, their lives should be normal. How could it be possible that both of them were covered with scars?
Martin noticed Alyssa’s gaze, glanced down at her chest, raised his eyebrows, and said, “Miss Alyssa, are you trying to s3duce me and to show you Clifford’s whereabouts?”
Alyssa was taken aback for a moment, and said angrily, “Do you really think everyone is as shameless as you? Something wrong!”
After she finished speaking, she turned around and went out, and Martin looked at her back, suddenly tightened his brows, reached out and hugged his head, and there was an expression of great pain on his face.
He staggered two steps and bumped into the chair behind him, but his headache seemed to burst. He couldn’t stabilize his figure at all, and fell to the ground with his legs bent.
The next moment, Daisy rushed in from outside: “What’s wrong with you!”
She squatted hurriedly in front of Martin, trying to help him up.
After Alyssa returned to the room, she sat on the bed and couldn’t figure it out.
She felt that there were many clues, but also felt that there were no clues.
Call Karl, right?
She has to find someone to come up with an idea.
She picked up the phone, pressed Karl’s number, and then hesitated for a while before dialing out.
If Karl’s attitude was not lukewarm, she said she missed Grace.
Besides, she was thinking of Grace.
The phone rang once, twice, three times…
Because no one answered it all the time, when it was about to hang up automatically, the phone was connected.
Alyssa didn’t expect someone to answer the phone at the last moment. She was not sure if it was Karl, or Smith, so she tentatively said, “Karl?”
The person on the other end of the phone only faintly responded, but fortunately, it was indeed the familiar voice.
After careful calculation, Alyssa came to United States for about a week, but except for the first two days of calling, she hasn’t contacted much in the past few days. Suddenly, she heard Karl’s voice. The momentary discomfort.
She held the phone in one hand, and unconsciously pulled the sheets with the other hand: “What are you doing?”
Karl’s tone was cold: “Eating.”
This time, Grace’s voice came from the other end: “Whose call?”
After Grace finished speaking, he said, “It’s your mother.”
Alyssa heard Grace’s voice, and there was a hint of joy in her entire tone: “You and Grace are eating at home?”
Karl snorted very slightly, and said with a mockery: “Remember that I have a daughter?”
Alyssa decided to ignore this sentence directly: “Let me hear Grace.”
There was a moment of silence on the other side, and Grace’s voice came from the phone: “Mom!”
Karl should have turned on the handsfree, and Grace got close again, his voice was a little loud.
“Grace, do you miss your mother?”
“Yes, I really want to.”
Hearing Grace’s milky voice, Alyssa’s mouth couldn’t help but bend.
Before she could speak, she heard Grace say again: “Dad misses you too, he is crying.”
At the end of the word “cry”, she also deliberately emphasized the tone, which sounds a bit exaggerated in the anime.
“Huh?” Alyssa didn’t react in her mind.
Karl thinks about her, so wants to cry?
It may be that Karl took the phone away, and Grace’s dissatisfied voice came from the other end of the phone: “I still want to talk to my mother!”
Sure enough, the next moment, Karl’s voice rang on the phone.
He explained without emotion: “I choked after eating Hot Pot the day before yesterday. Peter teased Grace, and she took it down.”
Alyssa grasped the point: “You take her to eat Hot Pot?”
Without waiting for Karl to speak, Grace said loudly, “It’s super spicy!”
Karl squinted at Grace. She shrugged her shoulders, blinked again, and ran to find the maid: “Auntie, I’m so thirsty.”
First-class escape skills.
Alyssa gritted her teeth and said, “Karl, you actually took Grace to eat Hot Pot?”
“Give her a small pot of clear soup.”
“Then she said spicy?”
“She didn’t eat spicy food, just tasted a little.”
“That is to eat!”
Karl stopped speaking, and the phone became quiet for a while.
After a while, Karl said again, “When will you be back?”
After he finished speaking, he added a little hastily: “Grace misses you.”
“you do not miss me?”
In this way, Alyssa felt weak.
She ran out by herself, and now there is no progress at all. Instead, she has fallen into a puzzle, and she wants to find Karl for help.
Why are you so boring?
This time, it was Karl who spoke first: “Did you see Clifford?”
“No, I took a look at the villa last night and found that apart from the servant bodyguard, there was only Martin alone. Clifford was not found for the time being, and last night…”
She was about to say that she received a call from Clifford last night, but Karl suddenly asked gloomily, “You live with Martin? Is he alone?”
The next moment, Karl’s angry voice came: “Alyssa, I will see you in Rostenvel before tomorrow night, or else, you’re at your own risk!”
