Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Joel’s expression suddenly turned extremely awful. He said anxiously, “Tanya, I can explain.”
“Keep that for your daughter instead, Mr. Smith. Our relationship is not at the point where you need to explain anything to me! Goodbye!”
Tanya turned and went back into the school angrily.
Fury and panic arose in Joel as he looked at her from behind.
He turned and got into his car.
“To the company, Mr. Smith?” The chauffeur asked.
Joel was practically gnashing his teeth in fury as he said, “To Hillary’s!”
He took out his cell phone and looked at his own Facebook timeline. However, he didn’t see Hillary’s post. This meant that the post had been hidden from him!
He stretched out his hand to the chauffeur and said, “Give me your cell phone.”
His chauffeur also had Hillary as a friend on Facebook.
He took a look after the chauffeur handed him his phone. Sure enough, he found the post.
Hillary practically couldn’t get any sneakier!
The two arrived at Hillary’s residence. When Hillary heard that Joel was there to look for her, she happily went downstairs. However, the moment she went down, she instead saw a furious Joel.
Hillary asked timidly, “Joel, what’s the matter?”
“Can you explain this Facebook post of yours to me?!”
Joel pushed the chauffeur’s phone right into her face!
Hillary froze when she saw the post.
She bit her lip, forced a smile, and replied, “Isn’t that just an ordinary Facebook post, Joel? What’s wrong?”
Joel demanded furiously, “You followed us to the restaurant?”
Hillary lowered her gaze. “I… I just missed Mia so much, so I followed the two of you. Let me explain, Joel… I didn’t mean anything else with the post. I just didn’t want other people to know that I couldn’t even celebrate my daughter’s birthday with her… They will look down on me if they ever find out…”
Those words of hers couldn’t get any more pretentious.
Even the chauffeur felt that it was understandable why she would do that.
Unfortunately, it was Joel whom she was up against.
Joel didn’t accept her nonsense at all. He stepped forward and grabbed her chin. “So, you want to have cake with your daughter on her birthday?”
Hillary nodded. “Yes.”
He picked up the container with the cake that Tanya had rejected. He opened it, took the cake out, and smashed it onto Hillary’s face. He said coldly, “Have a good taste of it, then!”
She took a step back and wiped the cake off her face with her hands. She lifted her head and looked at Joel incredulously. “Joel, you—”
She couldn’t bring herself to say the rest of what she wanted to say, though, because the look in Joel’s eyes was simply too terrifying.
The way he looked as if he wanted to kill her made her unable to utter a single word.
Joel’s icy-cold voice rang out. “Don’t you dare play any tricks from now on, or else!”
Hillary wanted to speak, but he added, “You should thank your lucky stars that you’re Mia’s mother. Otherwise, you’d have been dead a long time ago.”
His words stunned Hillary.
As they had made plans to go to the amusement park the next day, Nora woke up a little late. She stretched and went downstairs.
In the afternoon, Nora gave Lily the leftover drink that she had taken from Victor at the arena the day before and told her to go to a laboratory and check if there were any unidentified chemicals in it. Nora also instructed her to personally do the test herself.
Ever since Lily returned to the States to help her, she had been terribly busy. She left immediately after picking up the leftover drink and receiving Nora’s instructions.
Nora, however, went back to sleep after that.
What was she to do? The amusement park date would take up the whole day, which was to say that she would have to get up early in the morning the next day. Thus, she had to make up for the next day’s worth of sleep in advance.
By the time she woke up again, it was already dark outside.
She got up, got dressed, and went downstairs to the car park. She was about to go to the car when Quentin appeared behind her and said, “Why don’t you come with me in my car today, Nora?”
She glanced at him.
Quentin said, “If you go in with me, I can show you how intimidating I am in the arena. You’ll get special privileges that way.”
Nora had always enjoyed special privileges from the very moment she was No. 028. She didn’t have any idea what it was like for ordinary people.
However, since Quentin was inviting her to go along with him so enthusiastically, Nora thought for a while and simply replied, “Alright, then.”
This way, she wouldn’t need to drive, either.
She could even nap a little while on the way there.
She carried a bag in her hand. Inside was the red dress and silver mask she usually wore.
However, it was only after she got in the car that she realized that catching up on sleep in the car was too indulgent an idea—because Quentin couldn’t stop talking while they were on the road.
“Why don’t I introduce you to Big Sister later? Do you also admire Big Sister a lot? I can even ask her to give you an autograph.”
She said lazily, “Can you even get one for yourself?”
“Of course. I’ve participated in several matches with her by now, so she’ll definitely show me that bit of courtesy. Besides, Big Sister thinks exceptionally highly of me. Oh, she has even acknowledged me as her younger brother!”
When had she ever acknowledged him as a younger brother?
While she was hesitating, Quentin spoke again. “Are you jealous? To be honest, what she values in me is my capability. You know I’m ranked third in New York’s martial arts circle, right? Apart from Big Sister and Big Brother, I’m the strongest here!”
“Do you want to take a photo with Big Sister later? If so, you can leave that to me, too!”
Nora’s lip corners spasmed. “It’s fine.”
“Are you embarrassed? There’s nothing embarrassing about chasing after idols. Also, Big Sister is actually not that perfect.”
Was he starting to speak ill of her?
While she was thinking about it, Quentin said, “She doesn’t really have a good eye for people. Her husband is not that great. He looks just like a useless pretty boy.”
“But no one is perfect, after all. Given Big Sister’s status, it’s understandable even if looks are the only thing she considers when choosing a husband. It’s not that bad having a gigolo, either.”
“I intend to persuade Big Sister to give him up, though.”
The corners of Nora’s lips spasmed as she said, “That’s impossible.”
“Why not? My words hold a lot of weight with Big Sister. If I tell her to break up with him, she’ll definitely consider it. After all, we’re big shots in the martial arts circle…”
Quentin kept chatting all the way till they arrived at the arena.
Quentin was about to get out of the car when he noticed that Nora hadn’t moved. The confused man asked, “Aren’t you getting out of the car?”
“Oh, I have to change.”
Quentin was about to tease her for being vain and changing when there wasn’t a need for her to, when Nora took out a red dress and a familiar-looking silver mask from her bag.
