During lunchtime, many people eat in Best Day.
Alyssa originally wanted to find a box, but the boxes were already full.
She could find Peter to help her adjust it, but it was unnecessary and it was too troublesome for others.
There was no place for the card table by the window, so they had to sit in the hall.
Apart from being a bit noisy in the hall, everything else is fine.
After Grace sat down, she looked around.
Alyssa asked her: “What are you looking at?”
“Uncle Grant.” Grace looked for a while, but didn’t see Peter, so she gave up.
Alyssa also looked around when she just came in, and didn’t see Peter, so she guessed that Peter was probably not here.
After ordering the food, Alvin has been teasing Grace.
When meal was almost finished, Alyssa saw Peter and Clayton coming out of a box.
They also turned their heads to see Alyssa, the two of them looked at each other and walked towards her.
Grace had sharp eyes, and when she saw Peter, she happily called him: “Uncle Grant!”
“Eh!” Peter replied, and turned his hand towards Grace, and then ran over: “Ms. Grace is coming to eat with her mother!”
“Yeah.” Grace nodded heavily: “I didn’t see you just now.”
“I was eating in the room, why didn’t you ask your mother to call me?” Peter pinched her nose, then looked at Alyssa: “You hear me, Alyssa, Ms. Grace is looking for me You want to call me.”
Alyssa just smiled, and then politely nodded towards Clayton.
Clayton’s gaze fell on Alvin.
When Peter just came over, he also saw Alvin, but Grace called him first, and he coaxed Grace first.
Seeing that they all looked at Alvin, Alyssa said, “This is my… friend, Alvin.”
Alyssa hesitated when she said “friend” in the middle.
Are she and Alvin friends?
Peter looked at Alvin with a playful smile: “Hello, this is Peter.”
“Hello.” Alvin is rare and serious.
When it was Clayton’s turn, he smiled faintly and stretched out his hand to Alvin: “Long time no see, little brother.”
This “junior brother” made everyone look at Clayton.
Alvin was a little surprised on the south face: “When I saw you just now, I felt like, but I didn’t expect it to be you, Brother Cox.”
Alvin turned his head and explained to Alyssa: “This is my senior in the United States, do you know him?”
“I know.” Clayton said first.
If Clayton and Alvin are alumni, then he should also know that Alvin is a lawyer.
She called Clayton before joining, and Clayton must have known that she was looking for Alvin as her litigation lawyer.
Alyssa was a little embarrassed, and the atmosphere was a little subtle.
Peter reluctantly chatted with Alvin and left with Clayton.
When leaving, Clayton said to Alvin: “Brother, I have time to eat together.”
Alvin responded with a smile, “Okay.”
After they left, Alyssa said with a smile: “I didn’t expect you and Lawyer Clayton to be alumni.”
“Well, when Brother Cox was in school, he was a very good person.” When Alvin said this, the smile on his face was very sincere. It was obvious that he admired Clayton a little.
Alyssa thought for a while and said, “Then, do you know that Lawyer Clayton is the legal counsel of the Adams Group?”
Sure enough, Alvin’s complexion suddenly collapsed: “I don’t know.”
Grace was eating beans, chewing them crisply.
She looked at Alvin blankly, and pushed a small plate of beans in front of her to him: “Uncle Alvin, eat beans.”
Alvin grabbed a handful of beans and stuffed it into his mouth, chewing like a “crack” like venting his anger, his expressionless expression was a bit scary.
Grace couldn’t help but leaned to Alyssa, looking scared.
Alyssa touched her head to comfort her.
When leaving Best Day, Alyssa opened the car door, and Grace climbed into the car first.
Alvin pulled Alyssa aside and said, “You can prepare to sue.”
Alyssa was taken aback for a moment. Although she knew that she would meet Karl in court one day, but when it came time to prosecute, she still hesitated.
Alvin saw Alyssa’s hesitation and said, “You want Grace, and Karl can’t give Grace to you. Your only way is to prosecute.”
“I know.” Alyssa nodded her head with a cold face. A gust of wind made her feel a little cold. She raised her head and said, “Wait two more days.”
Alvin didn’t say anything more: “Then I will go back first.”
Alyssa turned her head and saw Grace lying on the edge of the car window, looking out curiously.
She smiled at Grace and returned to the car: “You haven’t seen father for two days, do you want him?”
Grace played with her fingers and said word by word, “Think a little.”
“Then I will send you back to Dad, OK?”
“Huh?” Grace raised her head, her little eyebrows frowned again: “Will you go?”
She meant that after Alyssa sent her back to Karl, would she leave.
Alyssa said warmly: “I’m just sending you back to see father, don’t you miss him? You will stay with him for one night, and I will pick you up tomorrow.”
“Oh, all right.” Grace nodded.
It was already eight o’clock in the evening, and Karl should have gone home by this time.
When Alyssa drove to the door of Karl’s villa, she happened to see Smith coming out of the house.
He was also a little surprised when he saw Alyssa’s car.
Alyssa got out of the car and greeted Smith politely: “Mr. Smith.”
“Miss Alyssa, what are you…” Smith turned his head and saw Grace getting out of the car.
Grace said sweetly: “Uncle Smith.”
Smith’s face immediately showed a smile: “Grace is back.”
After he finished speaking, he turned his head and said to Alyssa: “Sir is in the study, I will go back first.”
Smith knew that Alyssa must have been looking for Karl to send Grace back at this time.
Alyssa took Grace in, and went directly to Karl’s study.
Standing at the entrance of the study, she knocked on the door.
After a few seconds, Karl’s deep voice came from inside: “Come in.”
Alyssa opened the door, and as soon as Grace let go, she ran towards Karl.
“Dad!” Grace hadn’t seen Karl for two days.
Karl was sitting at the desk. He was looking at documents with his head down. He heard Grace’s voice and looked up at the door. He saw Alyssa at a glance.
His hand, which was about to turn the page, shook unexpectedly. Fortunately, the location of his desk was far from the door, Alyssa didn’t see it.
When he lost his mind, Grace already ran to him: “Dad.”
Grace had already consciously climbed onto the chair opposite his desk, and stepped on the chair directly onto his desk.
When Karl usually works from home, he asks Grace to sit at the table and play by herself, because she is too small, so she can rest assured that she puts a small group in front of her.
Alyssa strode over, and said after a pause, “Grace misses you, I took her over, by the way, I have something to talk about.”
Have something to talk about?
So Grace was brought back because there was something to talk about.
Karl glanced at her indifferently, then called and asked the servant to take Grace back to her own room.
After Grace left, the two sat facing each other.
For some reason, no one spoke out first.
Alyssa looked down at the desktop, while Karl lowered his head and casually flipped through the documents in his hand.
After a while, he said, “Isn’t there something to talk about? If not, I still have work to deal with.”
His tone was indifferent, he couldn’t hear any extra feelings, and Alyssa even heard a sense of boredom.
She tightened the corners of her lips and took a deep breath before speaking.
“When are you going to marry Miana?”
Karl’s hand gestures, and finally raised his eyes to look at Alyssa: “What? Do you want to come for a wedding drink?”
Hearing this, Alyssa clenched her hands involuntarily, but the expression on her face was very calm, even with a smile: “If you send me an invitation, why don’t I come?”
Karl didn’t expect that she would fight back like this, he stared at Alyssa without speaking.
“If you make up your mind that you must marry Miana and for Grace’s custody, I will sue.” After the last four words were said, Alyssa’s back was straight, and the whole person was stretched. Tightly.
She was waiting for Karl’s answer, and she was very nervous.
How would Karl answer her? Is it still the same as before?
They lived together for so long, and Karl knew very well any small habits of Alyssa.
He put his hand on the desk back and put it on the leg under the desk. He also clenched his hands where Alyssa could not see.
Afterward, he spoke unhurriedly: “I and Miana are in love, and of course we are going to get married. As for Grace’s custody rights…”
Having said this, he paused slightly and sneered: “She is my daughter, of course I want custody.”
“Don’t you know that Miana doesn’t like Grace? If you really like Miana, think about her, she doesn’t want Grace to follow you at all! You give me the custody of Grace, that’s right you and Miana… me and Grace, good to all of us!”
When things have reached this point, Alyssa has completely put her personal feelings aside, she just wants Grace.
She believed that for Karl at this time, her analysis was sensible and clear enough, and it was still very likely that Karl would listen.
If Karl could listen to her statement, then they would not have to meet in court. This was the best assumption.
But ideas are just ideas.
“It’s good for all of us?” Karl’s tone was a little gloomy, and the corners of his lips curled slightly, looking a little crippled.
Facing such a Karl, Alyssa was a little scared.
Just when Alyssa was nervous, Karl stood up suddenly, put his hands on the desk, leaned forward and looked at Alyssa steadily.
His eyes were as black as before, as if thick ink was spilled inside, too deep to see any other colors.
Karl’s eyes were locked tightly to her, and he mocked: “Alyssa, you are such a kind and free-spirited woman. So soon you can think of me and other women like an okay person, you don’t want to thank me?”
No matter how stupid Alyssa was, she could still hear the mockery in his tone.
“Otherwise? What do you want? Do you want to see me crying in front of you, please give me the custody of Grace?”
Alyssa’s eyes were firm, without any weakness: “Dreaming! I will definitely get Grace’s custody.”
Karl looked down at her slightly, her eyes flashing an incomprehensible smile.
His woman just wants to be like this, don’t give up at any time, even in front of him.
In this case, he can rest assured…
Karl narrowed his eyes, covered the emotions under his eyes, and turned around: “In that case, you can go. We’ll see you in court.”
“Okay!” Alyssa bit her lip, squeezed the word out of her throat heavily, got up and went out.
Without looking back, she strode out of the study door.
Karl turned his head back when he heard the sound of the door being closed with a “bang”, leaning on the desk with one hand, maintaining a posture of looking sideways, and did not move for a long time.
Alyssa didn’t look back until she walked out of the door of Karl’s villa.
She got in the car and started the car while calling Alvin.
Alvin seemed to have expected that she would make a phone call, and soon answered the phone.
Without waiting for him to speak out, Alyssa said directly, “Alvin, I decided to sue.”
“Okay, I understand.” Alvin didn’t ask much, he still felt very reliable when he got the business.
Alyssa hung up the phone, dropped the phone to the co-pilot’s position, and concentrated on driving.
However, her complexion has been cold.
When she drove into the community, she saw Dave shopping in the convenience store at the entrance of the community.
Driving in the community was very slow. When she stopped the car, Dave had already walked downstairs.
She got out of the car and stopped him.
Dave stopped and turned back, raised his eyebrows slightly to look at her, and motioned for her to say anything.
After Alyssa approached, Dave turned his head and looked behind her, “Where is your daughter?”
“Sent to Karl.” Alyssa walked beside him, her tone mixed with a touch of loss.
Dave didn’t ask much, and walked inside in silence.
Entering the elevator, Alyssa, who had been silent, said: “I decided to sue and fight Karl for the custody of Grace.”
She didn’t know why she wanted to talk to Dave.
Maybe she is really no one to say.
Dave was a little surprised at this news: “Karl is fighting with you for custody?”
His transaction with Karl was very simple. He only needed to protect Alyssa’s safety. As for other things, Karl would not tell him, and he would naturally not ask more.
What he hates most is nosy.
Alyssa reluctantly smiled, “Your tone sounds surprising.”
Dave was really surprised.
Karl tried his best to protect her and fight for custody with her. Karl was willing to do such a laborious task?
Even if he had lived the life of licking blood before, he had to admit that Karl was a cruel person.
