After Alyssa watched Smith leave, she waited for Grace to come out at the entrance of the kindergarten.
When Grace saw Alyssa, she was particularly happy and ran towards her directly.
She ran over and hugged Alyssa’s legs directly, raised her head and blinked her eyes and smiled at Alyssa: “I was just thinking about whether my mother would come to pick me up.”
Alyssa pinched her nose and hugged her up: “Didn’t I tell you this morning? When you are over from school, I will come to pick you up.”
Grace said seriously: “But what if you want to work! If you go to work, you won’t have time to pick me up.”
Alyssa didn’t know what to say for a while.
Every time she didn’t have time to see Grace, it was because she was busy with work, and Grace had already remembered it.
Alyssa put Grace down, she squatted in front of Grace, her eyes were level with Grace, and she said slowly and clearly: “Mom said she will come to pick you up, she will definitely come to pick you up. Unless something serious happens. It’s something, otherwise, Mom won’t miss the appointment, remember?”
“Remember.” Grace nodded seriously.
After returning home, Alyssa went to cook.
Grace took a small stool and ran to the kitchen, put it in front of the flow table, stood on the stool, grabbed the table, and went to help Alyssa with food.
At this time, she saw the band-aid on Grace’s hand.
Grace leaned over half of her body and grabbed Alyssa’s hand: “Mom, you are hurt!”
“It’s okay.” Alyssa couldn’t help laughing as she looked at her fuss.
“Does it hurt?” Grace looked up at her, her watery eyes full of worry.
Seeing Alyssa’s heart was about to melt, she leaned over and k!ssed Grace’s cheek: “It’s really okay, it doesn’t hurt at all.”
“Mom, wait for me!” Grace suddenly jumped off the stool and ran out.
“What are you going to do?” Alyssa asked her in a loud voice.
Grace didn’t answer her, she turned in the living room, Alyssa was about to go out to see what was going on, Grace had already ran in with a small pink paper box.
The mini paper box is really small, it’s a big palm, the color is pink, and there is a bear pattern on it.
Grace came over with the small paper box, and while climbing on the stool, he handed the paper box to Alyssa.
Alyssa saw her crawling awkwardly, stretched out her hand to help her, and took the box: “What did you take?”
“Little bear band-aid.” After Grace stood up, she reached out and took the small box that Alyssa had just handed over: “I’ll open it for you. This band-aid will not hurt after you put it on.”
If you coax children like this, only children will believe it.
But Alyssa still cooperated with her very seriously: “Really? Then I will try it too.”
Grace opened the box and took a powder bandage from the inside, tearing it apart and putting it on Alyssa’s finger.
Alyssa tore off the band-aid that Tina had put on her before, and handed her finger to Grace.
Grace opened her mouth slightly and exclaimed, “What a big wound.”
“Huh~” She blew for Alyssa, and then asked: “Does it still hurt?”
Alyssa shook her head: “It doesn’t hurt anymore.”
Grace gave a small face and snorted: “Mom is a liar, it still hurts after screaming!”
“…” Alyssa was a little embarrassed. She originally wanted to coax Grace, but she didn’t expect to be exposed instead.
After Grace finished speaking, she cautiously helped Alyssa put the bandage tape on. When she applied it, she was so careful that she could not breathe easily.
After she finally posted it, she straightened up, let out a long sigh of relief, and clapped her hands: “It’s done! This time it really doesn’t hurt, right?”
Seeing Grace’s appearance as a little adult, the smile on Alyssa’s lips could not help deepening.
Grace murmured again: “I’m not a stupid kid! it’s useless at all, but putting on this band-aid makes it less painful!”
“Yes, this time it doesn’t hurt much. Thank you Grace.” Alyssa touched her head.
Grace raised her head and smiled happily: “No thanks, because I love you~”
“Hahaha~” Alyssa really couldn’t hold back her laugh this time, she really didn’t expect Grace to say such a thing.
Grace’s small eyebrows frowned and looked at Alyssa with dissatisfaction.
Alyssa quickly stopped her smile, calmed down, and asked her: “Mom loves you too, but mom still wants to know who taught you this.”
“Taught by the teacher.” Grace carefully packed her band-aid box, jumped off the stool and prepared to put it back.
“Did your teacher give your band-aids?” Alyssa hadn’t prepared anything like this for Grace.
Grace’s voice came from the living room: “Daddy bought it!”
“Your father bought it?” Karl bought something like this for Grace?
Alyssa was a little dazed, would Karl buy such things?
It is also possible that he ordered Smith to buy it, but Smith bought this.
After Grace came back after putting the small box, she said to Alyssa, “I went to the supermarket with my dad that day after school. My dad bought it.”
Alyssa was speechless for a moment, and she could hardly imagine Karl taking Grace to buy such things.
After dinner, Grace sat on the carpet and read a comic book, and Alyssa went to the kitchen to wash the dishes.
As soon as she finished washing the dishes, the phone rang.
Alyssa hesitated slightly before going to get the phone.
Seeing the name noted above, she did not immediately answer the call.
Because this call was from Karl.
Karl’s purpose for calling her was nothing more than to ask about Grace’s situation.
Alyssa took a deep breath and answered the phone.
She put the phone to her ear and did not make a sound immediately, waiting for Karl on the other end to make a sound first.
Karl really spoke first.
“Grace is with you.” His voice was cold and distant, and Alyssa could even imagine him sitting at the desk in the study at this time, answering the phone expressionlessly.
“Well, I just came back for few days, so I picked her up.” After Alyssa said, she waited for Karl on the other side to speak.
But there was only silence on the other end, and Alyssa had to continue: “I will send Grace back then.”
After a few seconds, Karl’s voice came from the phone: “Yes.”
“Then if nothing else…”
Karl interrupted the last half-sentence “I’ll hang up” before finishing saying, “I and Miana are getting married.”
For a moment, Alyssa felt that her mind was blank.
But she quickly recovered her voice: “Congratulations.”
“You should cherish the time you spend with Grace. After I get married, you can no longer take her to you casually.” don’t know if it is Alyssa’s illusion, she always feels Karl’s voice sounds colder than before.
At the same time, Alyssa’s heart tightened as he said that.
Alyssa asked, “What do you mean?”
After listening to her, Karl said straightforwardly: “I know you want Grace’s custody, but I won’t give it to you.”
Alyssa couldn’t help tightening her hand while holding the phone, her voice was full of icy cold: “So, we still have a tacit understanding. My thoughts are the same as you.”
The voice fell, and the phone was silent.
After a while, Alyssa heard Karl’s low and cold voice: “Then see you in court.”
Alyssa returned only one word, with a firm tone: “Okay.”
Then she hung up the phone.
Putting the phone aside, Alyssa’s body was a little soft, she supported the flow desk to prevent herself from falling.
At noon, Tina told her that Karl was about to get married, and she calmly talked about Grace’s custody.
However, when Karl personally told her that he was going to get married and wanted to take Grace’s custody, Alyssa still found it difficult to accept.
She had never thought that one day she would meet Karl in court, just to fight for Grace’s custody.
Alyssa could see from the kitchen door, she could just see Grace who was leaning on the coffee table to read a comic book, she still couldn’t understand the words, she only looked at the pictures, pointed with one hand on it, and muttered something in her mouth…
Looking at Grace in this way, Alyssa’s hand on the stage slowly tightened. In any case, it was impossible for her to let Grace and Miana live together.
She must contend for Grace’s custody rights, even if it is unscrupulous…
After Karl hung up the phone, he put his elbows on the desk and held his fingers together against his forehead.
Smith knocked on the door and came in: “Sir, are you still going back from work?”
Karl did not look up with his head up, and his voice was slightly muted: “Even Grace is not at home. I won’t go back tonight. You go back.”
Smith looked at him like this, and he couldn’t bear to say, “Sir, do you have to go this far with Madam?”
Karl did not speak. After a while, he straightened up, retracted his hands and raised his head.
His eyes were filled with things that could not be understood all the time, and they were dull, as if they could not see the side at a glance.
“This is the last step. After this step, you can close the net.” Karl’s voice was still dull, and there was a tiredness that was rarely seen in his voice.
Smith also wanted to persuade Karl, he always felt that Karl actually didn’t need to bear these things alone.
The two have been together for many years and have had a deep understanding. When they Smith spoke, Karl knew what he was going to say.
He interrupted Smith’s words: “You don’t have to say, go back.”
Smith sighed and turned around and went out.
He should have known that he could not persuade Karl.
Even if Alyssa came, she might not be able to persuade him.
Once Karl decided something, no one could persuade him.
The next day was Saturday, and Alyssa planned to take Grace out to play.
Grace is still very interested in playgrounds.
Halfway through, Alyssa sent a video to Tina, with a sad expression on her face: “If I hadn’t announced today, I would also come and play with you.”
“You better go to work!” Alyssa pulled Grace over: “Say hello to Aunt Tina.”
Grace smiled happily, and did not forget to show off with Tina: “Aunt Tina, we are going to eat French fries soon~”
“I’m so pitiful, I don’t even have French fries to eat~” Tina narrowed her mouth and Grace pretended to be pitiful.
Grace blew a k!ss to Tina, “You have to go to work!”
Tina was amused by her, pretending to be a ferocious snort.
Alyssa ended the video call with Tina, and took Grace to eat French fries.
The mother and daughter played all day and were tired when they got home. When she helped Grace take a bath, Grace had been dozing off.
After she took Grace back to her room, she checked on the Internet a law firm in Rostenvel that specializes in custody cases.
Karl told her personally that he was getting married, which meant that this matter was urgent.
She was about to start preparing for this now. She wanted to know how likely she was to win against Karl.
But there is another problem. They have not disclosed Grace’s existence to the public. Once they go to court, they will most likely expose Grace.
With such an identity as Karl, someone would definitely want to take pictures of Grace.
She didn’t want Grace to live in the public eye, and everyone knew that her parents had divorced since she was a child.
It is not a shame to have parents divorced, but a child is sensitive. Everyone knows that her parents divorced since she was a child. This must have an impact on her growth.
Alyssa stretched out her hand and rubbed her eyebrows, lost in thought.
She sat in front of the computer in the middle of the night, and after searching a lot of information, she did not leave the phone number of any office.
In the end, she decided to ask Clayton.
Although Clayton is only good at fighting business and economic lawsuits, he should also have some understanding of these. She just asked Clayton to ask how likely she is to win.
Alyssa has a total of three days off. On Saturday, he went shopping, and on the weekend she took Grace to the zoo.
It’s a small zoo. She passed in the morning and went home at three in the afternoon.
Alyssa booked a plane ticket for Monday night. On weekend night, she sent Grace back to Karl’s villa.
Before going, she called Smith and asked him to tell Karl that she sent Grace back.
When she took Grace to the door of Karl’s villa, she saw Karl standing at the door waiting.
Alyssa got out of the car and carried Grace out.
Grace didn’t see Karl for two days, so she happily yelled, “Dad!”
Karl stood still and didn’t speak or move. His gaze came over and fell on Alyssa.
Alyssa stood by the car and looked at him.
Grace pulled her clothes corner: “Mom, I’m going to my father’s place, when will you come back to see me?”
“Maybe you will have to wait a few more weeks.” Alyssa touched her head.
Grace’s expression was a little disappointed, and she reluctantly walked to Karl’s side.
“Goodbye, Grace.” Alyssa waved at her.
Grace walked to the side of Karl, and even though he was reluctant, he still waved to her.
Alyssa glanced at Karl again, always feeling that he seemed to be thinner than before, she frowned slightly, and then stretched out again.
Maybe he is about to get married, so he has to deal with the work to make hum so thin.
Alyssa laughed at herself, turned around and opened the door to get into the car, and drove away without looking back.
Until Alyssa’s car disappeared, Karl was still standing there.
