Chapter 388: A Younger Sister Should Give In To Her Elder Brother
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
When Nora, who was about to stop in front of the jeep, saw him coming over out of the corner of her eye, she paused slightly and instead followed Justin to the ordinary car two parking spaces away from the jeep.
Justin glanced behind him. When he saw Quentin, he immediately understood why she had done that. However, he pretended not to understand and raised an eyebrow. He asked, “Are you thinking of going home with me? It’ll be my greatest pleasure.”
She rolled her eyes and said, “Can you be a little more serious?”
Justin let out a low chuckle. “This is the very first time someone has ever told me to be more serious.”
In front of outsiders, he had always been unfathomable and unsmiling, but the man was really letting go of himself more and more in front of her.
For some reason, Nora suddenly thought of the first time they had met.
The man had been cold and unfathomable at that time.
He had walked out of Hotel Finest’s elevator in California like he was the bright moon surrounded by a myriad of stars. At that time, Pete’s head was buried into his shoulders with only the back of his head exposed.
The man had glanced at her and then coldly said, “You’re not my type, Ms. Smith.”
How times had changed. How had that cold and distant man of that time suddenly fallen into the mortal world?
While she was thinking about it, the man walked over to the backseat, opened the door, and put Cherry in. Then, he looked at her. “You don’t want to be in the backseat? Oh, that’s true. You’d definitely want to be in the passenger seat instead.”
Fine. No matter how much time flew by, it seemed like the man would only become more and more narcissistic.
Nora sat in the backseat in the end. Justin didn’t mind, either. He drove off with her and Cherry.
In the car park.
Quentin stood in front of the jeep after watching Big Sister get into the car with her husband and daughter. However, even after waiting for a long while, he didn’t see his cousin coming out. He frowned and looked into the jeep through the window.
The car’s chassis was very high. When he looked at the backseat, he noticed two pieces of clothing that had been placed there.
Quentin was taken aback.
Weren’t those the clothes that Nora was wearing when she was treating Uncle Ian in the hospital?
Why were they in the backseat?
Quentin suddenly understood something, and he immediately smiled.
Nora left with Justin. She waited until Quentin left before she finally went back to her car.
She got into the car and changed in the backseat. After casually tossing the red dress onto the backseat, she finally opened the door to go to the driver’s seat.
Before she went over, Justin chuckled and said, “If you really want to hide your identity, you should change your car too.”
He tossed his car key to Nora and suggested, “Why don’t you drive this car instead for now?”
Nora glanced at his car.
From the outside, it was just an ordinary Volkswagen.
But once one entered, they would realize that it wasn’t as simple as it looked on the inside.
Be it the engine or the leather seats, all of them were the best. Remodeling a car cost a lot. In addition, even if she had the money, time was needed to remodel a car at the last minute.
Thus, after thinking about it for a while, she didn’t turn him down. She took the car keys from him and said, “I won’t stand on ceremony, then.”
Nora drove the jeep while Justin drove the ‘ordinary’ Volkswagen. The two left the building one after the other, and subsequently entered a high-end residential complex.
After getting Justin to park the Volkswagen in the residential complex, Nora said, “I’ve bought an apartment here. This is the parking lot for the apartment.”
Justin looked upstairs. “What’s your apartment number?”
Nora was a little surprised, but nevertheless answered, “302.”
Then, she asked, “What are you planning?”
“To buy 301.” Justin smiled and said, “If you ever move in, we can be neighbors.”
“… You must be sick in the head,” said Nora.
“Yeah, why don’t you treat my illness?” Justin immediately quipped.
The corners of her lips spasmed. She got into the jeep and said, “Get in the car. I’ll take you guys home.”
Justin picked up Cherry and got in the backseat. When Nora, who had gotten into the driver’s seat, saw them, she couldn’t help but say, “She has already grown up, yet you’re still holding her?”
“There’s no child seat. It’s not safe.”
Justin briefly explained.
Nora curled her lips disdainfully. “She’s already used to riding in the car by herself.”
“Mommy, that was because no one doted on me back then! I’m not used to it anymore!”
Cherry protested weakly. However, as soon as she said that, she saw Nora’s stern eyes in the rearview mirror. She was so scared that she shrank back and hastily said, “Yes, I’m very used to it. Why don’t you put me down, Daddy? Don’t hold me so tightly~”
Despite saying that, she didn’t get off Justin’s legs but instead hugged his neck tighter.
Justin chuckled and stroked Cherry’s hair. He didn’t expose her, but instead supported her and said, “Be good. Don’t listen to your Mommy, she’s just jealous.”
Cherry was puzzled. “What’s she jealous of?”
“That I’m hugging you, of course.”
This was an ambiguous statement.
First, it meant that she was jealous of Cherry.
Second, it meant that she was jealous of Justin.
That scumbag was really taking advantage of her every moment of the day.
The corners of Nora’s lips spasmed. She couldn’t be bothered with the two of them, so she instead asked detachedly, “When are you and Pete switching back, Cherry?”
Cherry panicked at once. She said, “Mommy, I really miss you very much. I miss you super much! I miss the way you sleep, the way you get ready to go to bed, the way you doze off while you eat…”
She couldn’t come up with any more. After being stuck for a while, she finally said, “But Pete needs you more! After all, you haven’t seen each other for five years, so I won’t disturb your bonding session, okay?”
That clever little fellow obviously didn’t want to come back anymore after Justin spoiled her so much, so she made up so many excuses.
She sneered, “Shall I thank you on behalf of Pete?”
“It’s fine~” Cherry said shyly, “What can I do? I’m his little sister, after all, so I have to give in to my elder brother~”
It seemed like Cherry had become more thick-skinned than before.
She glared at Justin. It really was like what they said—one was marked by the company they kept!
After Nora took Cherry and Justin to the Hunts, while Cherry was getting out of the car, she asked, “Mommy, when are you and Daddy taking Pete and me to the amusement park?”
Cherry, however, persisted. She asked, “When is that?”
“… The day after tomorrow!”
Nora had no choice but to give her an answer.
“Yay!” Cherry raised her eyebrows at Justin triumphantly. Then, she bounced off while holding his hand and entered the manor.
Nora returned to the Smiths after that.
Unexpectedly, right after she got out of the car, Quentin came out of nowhere and blocked her way. He said, “You don’t have to pretend anymore, Nora! I know your secret now!”
Nora’s pupils shrank!
Surely her identity as Big Sister hadn’t been exposed, had it?
