The smile on Alyssa’s face faded a little, and she explained to her softly: “Mom works in a field, and may not be able to come back to see you for a long time.”
When she was in Rostenvel before, except for the one time she was injured, she usually went to see Grace every day when she had the time and went there every day or two.
Grace seemed to understand Alyssa’s words, she nodded obediently, then suddenly looked up at the camera, and said seriously, “When will you be back then? You have time to see me.”
Alyssa’s heart was astringent, and she felt like something was blocked in her throat, which was uncomfortable.
Obviously not such a vulnerable person, but after hearing Grace’s words, she felt very sad, and even felt like crying.
Alyssa reached out to touch her nose, calmed down for a while, and then continued: “Mom will be back as soon as possible.”
Grace chatted with her for a long time before returning the phone to Smith reluctantly.
After finishing the video call, Alyssa sat down on the bench by the roadside.
There is no night shift today, and work ends in the evening, and everyone on the crew is almost gone. Alyssa was at the end because of the video call.
Her location at this time was in a park not far from the hotel.
There are not many people in the park, walking past Alyssa in twos and threes.
Alyssa leaned on the bench, a little lost.
When she said those things to Miana, she didn’t actually want to bless her and Karl.
Judging from the current situation, the possibility of her and Karl being together is too small. But she still hoped that Karl could be happy.
In the past few months, her mood has risen and fallen. There were times when she was sad, and when she didn’t believe Karl wanted to break up with her. Until now, she was finally willing to accept the fact that she broke up with Karl.
If they can’t be together, then she hopes Karl can live well.
Even though Karl’s behavior a few days ago made her very angry, after she calmed down, she still remembered Karl’s treatment of her more.
She is still willing to believe that the Karl she loved is an upright person, and hopes that he can live a better life.
Alyssa let out a long sigh of relief, got up and walked to the hotel.
After Miana left, everything in the crew returned to normal.
After filming closely for a whole month, the crew finally took three days off.
As soon as Alyssa received the holiday notice, she immediately booked a ticket back to Rostenvel.
She wanted to go back to see Grace, very much.
It was already five o’clock in the afternoon when she returned from work, and started booking tickets as soon as she finished work before returning to the hotel. But the latest flight ticket that night was also ten o’clock in the evening.
With a ticket at ten o’clock, it’s early morning to return to Rostenvel.
But Alyssa was back home like an arrow, and couldn’t manage so much.
If she can return to Rostenvel tonight, she can drive Grace to kindergarten tomorrow morning.
When Alyssa returned to the hotel to pack her luggage, they all hummed.
There was a knock on the door.
“Who?” Alyssa asked when she was loading her own toiletries, turning her head to the door.
With just one word, Alyssa could hear Mattie’s voice.
Alyssa got up to open the door, turned back and continued packing.
Mattie didn’t know that she had booked a flight back to Rostenvel tonight, and said, “What are you going to do to pack your luggage so early? Go out for dinner first, and then collect it when you come back at night.”
“I have a ticket at ten o’clock tonight. I packed my things and leave. I won’t go out for dinner with you.” Alyssa put the wash bag in the suitcase, with a brisk tone and a smile on her face.
Mattie was surprised: “The plane at ten o’clock? It’s early in the morning when it arrives in Rostenvel, so it’s too late!”
“It’s not a big deal to be late.” Alyssa didn’t care, closed the zipper of the suitcase and lifted the suitcase: “Okay, I’m going to go.”
Seeing that she insisted on going back so early, Mattie said, “Shall I let someone from the crew take you to the airport?”
“No, it’s still early. I still have plenty of time. I’ll just go by car.” Alyssa took the bag, pulled the suitcase and walked out.
Mattie came out with her: “Why do you have to rush back tonight, you are so anxious that you want to…”
“Well, you go to dinner earlier, and come back early after eating.” Alyssa interrupted her, but she felt very happy when she thought of seeing Grace, and she also deliberately said: “Be careful. Don’t play too late.”
Then, under Mattie’s dull gaze, Alyssa pulled the suitcase into the elevator.
“Even if you care about… me?” Mattie stayed for a while, and when she said the last “me”, she pointed her finger at herself.
When Alyssa arrived at the airport, there was still more than an hour before boarding.
She found a restaurant in the waiting room, ordered coffee and waited to board the plane.
Before she finished drinking a cup of coffee, someone sat down in front of her.
Alyssa looked up and saw Alvin’s suave face.
He was wearing a light green shirt today, with the shirt’s neckline open downwards, and three buttons without buttoned, which looked a bit bohemian.
But unlike those men who are pretentious and full of obscene thoughts, he looks much cleaner and magnanimous.
“We can meet here too. Does this mean that our fate is destined by heaven?” Alvin looked at Alyssa with a smile from the corner of his eyes, leaned forward slightly, staring at her nicely.
“The matter of fate is the most elusive. Moreover, God’s will is often not perfecting people, but God’s will is just making people.” Alyssa stirred the coffee in the cup and looked at Alvin with a smile.
Alvin was taken aback. He did not grow up in the country. He couldn’t react to words like Alyssa going around.
He thought about it for a while, and then said, “You mean, God’s will is teasing people most of the time?”
“You can understand it this way.” After Alyssa finished speaking, she asked, “Mr. Mann didn’t grow up in the country? You speak very well, but sometimes you still have a special accent.”
“Yes, I was born in United States.” Alvin did not evade this topic, and simply admitted the fact he was not from here.
Alyssa continued to ask: “Then you return to the country, are you planning to develop in the country?”
“If I knew that there are women as beautiful as Ms. Alyssa in the country, I would have returned sooner.” Alvin looked very serious.
When Alyssa heard the words, she laughed: “There are too many beautiful women in the country, and there are also many good-looking men, but there are not many men who are so good-looking and good-speaking like Mr. Mann.”
Alvin’s hands on his lap tightened, his eyes flashing slightly.
This woman is interesting.
Alvin and Alyssa chatted for a while, and it was time for boarding.
“I’m going to board the plane.” Alyssa raised her eyes to Alvin, waiting for him to take the initiative to get up and leave.
“Ms. Alyssa is going back to Rostenvel? Me too.” Alvin raised his wrist to check the time, and said: “Now boarding at this time, we may be on the same plane.”
The smile on his face gradually deepened.
Alyssa knew that Alvin would suddenly appear here, and it happened to be on the same plane as Alyssa. It was not accidental.
Alyssa lowered her expression, and said quietly, “Really? Such a coincidence.”
Alvin was about to speak when his cell phone rang.
“Sorry, I will answer the call.” He lowered his head and took out his cell phone to answer the call.
The person at the other end didn’t know what he said, Alvin glanced at Alyssa: “I know.”
When Alyssa felt that Alvin wanted her, she looked down at her mobile phone.
Although Alvin didn’t say a few words when answering the call, Alyssa could hear that his tone was very impatient, but she was patient with him.
In this way, Alyssa was a little curious about who was calling.
Alvin quickly hung up.
He hung up the phone and said to Alyssa, “Let’s go and board the plane together.”
Alyssa said, “I am in economy class.”
Alvin smiled again: “Me too.”
“Really?” Alyssa didn’t believe that Alvin would buy economy class. He is a rich son who used to enjoy it. Of course, his comfort was the most important thing.
Economy class is no better than first class.
“You see through it.” Alvin stretched his hands, without any embarrassment after being seen through.
After Alvin finished speaking, he didn’t stay any longer, so Alyssa ruled out boarding.
After getting on the plane, she found her place to sit down, closed her eyes and prepared to rest for a while.
After a while, she felt someone sitting next to her.
She didn’t open her eyes either, just leaned in.
The people beside her seemed to be holding things, and she could hear the sound of rubbing and rubbing the clothes.
After the person next to her calmed down, she felt heavy on her body, and something was covering her.
Alyssa opened her eyes quickly, she first saw a pair of men’s hands, clean and slender. These hands were covering her with a suit jacket.
Turning her head again, she met Clifford’s smiling eyes: “I thought you were asleep, I was afraid you were cold.”
He simply explained that he didn’t think his behavior was untimely.
With a cold face, Alyssa took off the coat and returned it to him: “I am not cold. If I am cold, I will let the stewardess give the blanket.”
Clifford glanced at the suit, but didn’t say much, just took it over.
As soon as she took over the suit, Alyssa immediately let go of her hand, as if there was a plague on him, afraid of touching his hand.
Clifford saw her movements in his eyes, his face sinking.
Alyssa turned her head and looked to the other side, what day was it? First Alvin, then Clifford.
Clifford and Alvin knew each other, maybe they both agreed to go back to Rostenvel together.
And Clifford knew that Alyssa loved Grace very much, and it was not a secret that the crew was on vacation. He must know that she would be eager to return to Rostenvel tonight.
So, she met Alvin in the coffee shop in the waiting room before, but it was actually Clifford who told Alvin of her whereabouts?
Clifford is smart and as careful as a hair, so he can definitely think of this.
Alyssa paused, without turning her head to look at Clifford, and asked directly: “You told Alvin, I will be back to Rostenvel tonight?”
“Yeah.” Clifford answered very simply.
After confirming this, Alyssa just sneered without speaking.
The back of the chair sank back, it should be Clifford leaning on the back of the chair.
The next moment, his voice came over: “You don’t need to waste time on Alvin, he doesn’t know anything.”
Alyssa sat up straight and fixedly looked at Clifford: “Grace is just a child and doesn’t know anything. Why didn’t you think about letting her go?”
The two people didn’t speak loudly. People in the front and back rows were all talking, and they would not hear the conversation between them.
Clifford was choked by Alyssa’s words and didn’t know what to say for a while, only his face was strained.
Alyssa asked him, “Have nothing to say, right?”
Clifford moved his lips and stretched out his hand to pull his tie: “Alyssa, I didn’t intend to hurt Grace, nor you…”
“You don’t need to say, I understand.” Alyssa interrupted him, not wanting to listen to his excuses: “It’s just because Grace is Karl’s daughter. I was once Karl’s wife. I and Grace are pawns that can be used to deal with Karl. So we are all used by you.”
Clifford groaned for a moment, and said, “I know that you are stubborn about these things. If you are willing to be with me, I will compensate you well.”
Alyssa didn’t know where Clifford’s face could say such a thing, she said mockingly: “You let me stab you and say sorry to you again, okay?”
Without waiting for Clifford to speak, Alyssa said to: “Even if I want to, I won’t do it, because I am not an ungrateful person who will take revenge.”
Clifford’s mask-like face was always peaceful, and finally began to change, like glass shards after being cut, and it took a long time to calm down.
The two stood in a stalemate for a while, and Alyssa turned her head and stopped looking at him.
Clifford didn’t make a sound anymore. He leaned back in his chair and stared slightly, but Alyssa knew that he was not asleep because he had kept a posture without moving, not even tilting his head.
It was exactly 12 o’clock when the plane landed at Rostenvel International Airport.
When Alyssa left the airport, it was 12:30.
She lined up and took a taxi home.
While sitting in the car, she was still fortunate, but fortunately she never met Alvin again.
It’s two o’clock when she got home.
Alyssa took a brief wash, adjusted the alarm clock, and fell asleep in bed.
Early the next morning, Alyssa called Smith when she left home.
“Miss Alyssa.” Immediately afterwards, Smith said again: “Are you back?”
Alyssa usually doesn’t call him so early, he guessed that Alyssa might be back.
“Yes, I’m back. I will take Grace to kindergarten today. I have already set off now.” Alyssa had already walked to the parking lot at this time, and she opened the car door and sat in.
Smith only replied: “I see.”
Alyssa drove to the door of Karl’s villa, got out of the car and waited for Grace to come out.
Those who are so appropriate like Smith will definitely call the servant to inform her that she is coming to pick up Grace today, so she doesn’t have to go in, lest she meets Karl.
