After hearing the words, Alyssa thought for a while, and said, “You think about it again, is there anything unusual about Karl recently?”
Smith contemplated for a moment, then hesitated for a while and said, “The abnormal place…nothing.”
If you really want to say something, the most unusual thing about Boss is that he broke up with Alyssa, and is still with Miana?
It’s just that Smith just thought about this in his heart and didn’t say it.
Alyssa was lost in thought.
Is she thinking too much?
Seeing that she had not spoken at all that night, she leaned forward slightly and called out, “Miss Alyssa?”
Ms. Alyssa came back to her senses and smiled politely: “Thank you, Mr. Smith, who can spare time to see me in the busy schedule, thank you.”
“Miss Alyssa doesn’t need to be so polite, even if you and Sir are no longer together, we are just friends,” Smith said from the heart.
Alyssa chuckled lightly: “Since you treat me as a friend, don’t keep calling me Miss Alyssa. That would be too boring.”
“No, no…” Smith’s face changed slightly, and he waved his hands repeatedly to express his rejection.
He has been with Karl for so many years, and Karl has accumulated prestige in his heart for a long time. Even if Alyssa is not together with Karl, she has long been accustomed to putting Alyssa to Karl. In the same position, how dare to call so affectionately.
Alyssa was just talking casually, but she didn’t expect Smith to be so scared.
“Mr. Smith you are usually busy, if you have something to do, please do it first, I have nothing else.” Alyssa was actually a little embarrassed in her heart, he was busy all year round, and finally she had a few holidays during the New Year and she called him out.
Smith didn’t immediately stand up and leave. He took a sip of the coffee in front of him, his expression was hesitant to speak.
Alyssa asked, “Is there anything wrong with Mr. Smith?”
Smith coughed lightly and said, “Did you see the news about CEO Grant?”
“You said that it was reported in the news that Peter had an illegitimate daughter?” Alyssa did not expect that there would be such gossips coming from Smith: “Fake, I took Grace to Best Day for dinner yesterday, maybe others thought Grace was His daughter.”
Smith nodded, did not stay any longer this time, got up and left.
After he left, Alyssa leaned back on the chair, thinking flashes in her eyes.
Even when she was closest to Karl, he said that everything was normal for Karl, so what was wrong?
Or is it just that she thinks too much?
Alyssa sighed irritably.
Not long after the New Year holiday, Mattie notified Alyssa to join the crew.
Before joining the group, Alyssa went to Karl to see Grace. Karl was not at home when she went.
The servant is an old employee who used to work in the villa. They all know Alyssa. Seeing Alyssa staying in the lobby for a while, he proactively said: “Boss has been out early and returning late in the past few days. He is very busy. Goes out early and come back to eat with the little lady in the evening.”
“Oh.” Alyssa was a little embarrassed, she smiled at the servant, and went upstairs to see Grace.
She wants to take care of Grace very much, but now she wants to join the group again.
Karl was busy, and Grace was often alone at home.
Too much happened last year, otherwise Grace would have been sent to kindergarten a long time ago. Alyssa felt that if Grace was sent to kindergarten and so many children played together, Grace would be happy.
“Grace, do you want to go to kindergarten? Play with many children.” Alyssa asked Grace with a smile.
Grace reacted very quickly, and after hearing Alyssa’s words, she asked back: “You want to send me to kindergarten?”
“Yeah.” Alyssa responded and said, “You want to go?”
Grace continued to ask: “Is it fun?”
Alyssa reached out to touch the small hair on Grace’s forehead, and said, “It should be fun to be at home alone, but you may meet children with bad tempers.”
Grace frowned, then smiled again: “I want to go.”
“Then mom will discuss with dad and send you to kindergarten.” Alyssa squeezed Grace’s face gently.
Grace shook her head and threw Alyssa’s hand away: “Okay.”
Mattie informed Alyssa that there were still several days left to join the group. Although the time was a bit short these days, she and Karl’s connections and abilities should be able to quickly find a suitable school for Grace.
After Alyssa left Karl’s villa, she drove to Adams’.
She took the time to go. When she got to Adams’ downstairs, it was time to rest and eat at noon.
She called Karl when she got under the Adams building.
When she made the first call, she was hung up as soon as the call was connected.
Alyssa stared at the phone for a few seconds, then dialed the phone.
After the call was connected this time, it rang four or five times and was picked up.
The person who answered the phone hadn’t spoken yet, but first came the voice of another woman: “he’s calling you again after he hasn’t finished?”
Alyssa’s hand holding the phone suddenly stiffened. The voice was familiar, it was Miana’s voice.
Karl is with Miana at this time?
Alyssa squeezed her hand tightly, and did not speak immediately.
After a while, Karl’s low voice came from the other end of the phone: “What’s the matter?”
No extra emotion could be heard in his voice, cold and indifferent.
“I want to talk to you about Grace going to kindergarten. I will be in the drama in a few days. I hope that before I enter the crew, you can spare time to talk about it with me and find a good kindergarten…”
Alyssa is also speaking in the tone of the business.
The two closest people ever had a reason to call because of their children.
“I have time now. I’m in the restaurant opposite Adams’. Come here.” Karl’s final tone fell, and there was a busy tone that the call was hung up.
Alyssa slowly put down the arm holding the phone, biting the corner of her lip and didn’t move.
Karl actually asked her to find him now?
The voice that came out on the phone just now was clearly Miana’s voice. He was with Miana, but he wanted her to come and talk to him?
What is he going to do?
Fortunately, she was still thinking about Karl’s previous actions, and she went to Smith and asked him about his current situation.
Now it seems that she is a complete fool!
Alyssa clenched her fists and hammered hard on the steering wheel. After taking a few breaths, she turned the steering wheel to start the car and went to the opposite restaurant.
She parked the car in the parking space at the entrance of the restaurant, slammed the door and entered the restaurant.
The waiter greeted her: “Miss, hello, how many?”
“Here to find someone.” Alyssa looked around, did not see Karl and Miana, turned to ask the waiter, “Is Karl with you?”
The waiter was stunned for a moment: “Are you talking about the CEO of the opposite Adams’s?”
Alyssa nodded: “Yes.”
The waiter looked at Alyssa’s eyes, but he answered truthfully: “He is not here, and he didn’t come at noon today.”
“Not here?” Alyssa thought the waiter was lying to her: “He told me that he was eating here.”
The waiter explained to her: “Mr. Adams often eats here, but he really didn’t come at noon today.”
At this moment, Alyssa’s cell phone rang.
Alyssa picked it up and found that it was Karl who had come.
She clicked the connection button, her tone was cold: “You lie to me, you are not here at all!”
As soon as Alyssa’s voice fell, there was a burst of laughter from the other end.
Miana followed with a deep mocking voice: “Alyssa, we are just joking with you, did you really go?”
When Miana spoke, there was an open smile in her tone.
Alyssa didn’t say anything and stood motionless with her mobile phone.
Miana laughed and pretended to say generously: “Forget it, Karl, she really wants to see you, just let her come. I know you don’t want me to misunderstand, after all, she is also your ex-wife, even if the feelings are not there. The love is still there.”
Miana softly persuaded Karl, and Alyssa kept listening to it.
Karl was probably moved by Miana. After a few seconds, Alyssa heard Karl’s benevolent voice on the other end of the phone: “Then come here.”
The laughter in Miana’s tone is even more obvious: “Alyssa, I won’t lie to you this time. We are next door to that restaurant. Come here quickly…”
In the restaurant next door?
Then when she drove to the door of this restaurant and stopped, hadn’t Karl and Miana seen her?
They fooled her around. Do they find it funny?
Alyssa sneered in her heart, Karl was able to accompany Miana to lie to her and play her like a monkey. She is really the most ridiculous fool in the world.
Alyssa hung up the phone and went directly to the restaurant next door.
She stood at the door, and at a glance she saw Karl and Miana sitting by the dining room.
The two of them were talking and did not see Alyssa coming in.
Miana didn’t know what she was talking about, she smiled pretty deftly, Karl didn’t smile, and leaned lazily on the sofa, looking down as if listening to her seriously.
Karl and Miana are both outstanding people. Miana is over 30 years old, but they are well maintained. Sitting together, they look very right and seductive to others.
Alyssa walked over slowly and sat down directly opposite them.
The first thing she sat down on was to turn her head and glance out the window.
Sure enough, where Karl and Miana were, one could just see Alyssa’s parked car outside.
Alyssa retracted her gaze, turned her head to meet Miana’s, and Karl raised his eyelid and glanced at her.
Miana deliberately leaned against Karl, narrowing the distance between her and Karl, and then looked at Alyssa with a smile: “Here.”
“You are so kind, how can I not come?” Alyssa curled her lips, but there was no smile on her face.
In the past, Alyssa was standing next to Karl, but today, she is sitting opposite Karl.
She and Alyssa changed their positions. Just now, Karl still followed her words and tricked Alyssa into the restaurant next door.
Karl’s indulgence towards her made her more confident that Karl really loved her, and she became even more unscrupulous.
“We have eaten almost, what do you want to eat?” Miana said on purpose, unhappy with Alyssa.
In fact, Karl was the only one who really cared about Alyssa and was really angry and sad. What Miana said and did, for Alyssa, could not affect her at all.
She just glanced at Miana, and said lukewarmly, “Miss Palmer is all thinking about eating? I came to find Karl, there is business.”
Miana thought of Alyssa’s sadness and despair. She didn’t expect that Alyssa would attack her when she came.
“Alyssa, what do you mean? You have been pestering Karl, and Karl doesn’t want to see you at all! He will agree to see you, and it is because I persuaded him that he must see you! Why do you just come…”
Miana paused deliberately, turned her head, and looked aside, as if she was wronged and did not show it.
Alyssa thought it was ridiculous, but she didn’t have time to laugh, because she came to have a business.
She didn’t want to look at Miana anymore. She turned to look at Karl who had not spoken: “I’m here to tell you about Grace’s kindergarten. I’m going to join the crew soon. After we have discussed it, you can take care of it.”
Karl finally said aloud the first sentence after Alyssa’s arrival: “I will let someone arrange this.”
Miana wanted to pretend to be wronged and let Karl comfort her.
But Karl didn’t seem to notice what she looked like just now, so she had to accept his aggrieved expression and interjected in a modest sentence: “I know a very good kindergarten, and the principal is a friend of mine… “
“I’ll take care of my daughter’s affairs. Don’t bother Miss Palmer.” Alyssa didn’t leave any affection when she interrupted Miana directly.
Miana was waiting for Alyssa’s strong and domineering refusal. She hooked her lips unnoticeably. When she looked at Karl, she frowned slightly and said aggrievedly: “Karl, I just want to help you share a little…”
“I know.” Karl turned to look at Miana, with a gentle voice: “However, you don’t need to be distracted by these trivial matters, you just need to be happy.”
When he spoke, he narrowed his eyes slightly, still looking lazy, the gentle expression on his face was very obvious, but it gave Alyssa a very distant strangeness.
In Alyssa’s impression, Karl was a deep and introverted person. Unless he is particularly happy, and only when you are with her, you will show particularly obvious emotions.
And such a gentle expression, she rarely saw him in when she was with him.
If Karl and Miana asked her to come over to make her jealous, then they had already done it.
She found this scene extremely dazzling.
Alyssa couldn’t control herself, she couldn’t even pretend to smile.
She looked at Karl with a cold face, and continued to talk about Grace: “I will go to some kindergartens that I think are good. It may be the most expensive, but it must be the one with the best overall strength. We choose a few of them. In kindergarten, we will do the final assessment together in three days.”
Alyssa felt like she was discussing work projects with others. After the small-scale meeting, she went back to prepare, and then worked together on follow-up work, and finally to get the results.
Karl didn’t speak, just nodded imperceptibly.
Alyssa got a response and got up and left.
Miana knew that he would accept it when he sees it, and honestly watched Alyssa leave.
As soon as Alyssa turned her back, she heard Miana’s voice behind her: “Why are you so indifferent to her? Anyway, she is Grace’s mother.”
Alyssa slowed down subconsciously. After two seconds, she heard Karl’s faint voice: “The person next to me is you. Do you want me to be enthusiastic about her?”
Miana said angrily: “I will hate it!”
Karl’s chuckle followed.
