Chapter 455: Sleeping So Long?!
Pete looked at his sister and then at his aunt. He hurriedly threw down the Math Olympiad book. Just as Cherry was about to go downstairs, he rushed up and stopped her. "Cherry, Aunt Brenda is here!"
She stuck her head out and was about to look down when Pete stopped her.
Cherry asked in confusion, "Pete, is she not a good person?"
Pete was silent for a moment before shaking his head. "That's not it. The thing is… Aunt Brenda is a little weird. You… should stay away from her."
Brenda, who was listening to the two children talk downstairs, was speechless.
Why did she feel like she was being despised?!
She stood up. "Pete, what happened to you? Is that how you talk about me? Come down here!"
Pete glanced at Cherry and signaled for her to go back inside. Then, he walked downstairs slowly. Just as he went downstairs, he saw Brenda looking at him with a faint smile. "Pete, come."
Pete walked in front of her.
The next moment, Brenda stretched out her demonic claws. "Come, take off your pants. Let me see if you've grown up!"
He turned and ran. Brenda wanted to chase after him, but she was stopped by Justin. "Stop."
Pete ran upstairs and heaved a sigh of relief. He lowered his head and looked at Justin. Indeed, Justin said, "Pete, go in and look after your sister. Tell your mommy and sister not to come down."
With that, Pete pushed open the bedroom door and went in.
Brenda was speechless.
She raised her eyebrows and looked up. Then, she sat beside Justin and held his arm. "Justin, aren't you… protecting her too much? I can't eat her up!"
Justin felt a little uncomfortable with her being so close to him. Even though he and Brenda were only normal siblings, he still pushed her arm down. "You can't eat her up."
It was good enough that Nora didn't eat her!
However, what Justin was worried about was…
Her little sister might lead Nora astray!
Brenda liked men and had had boyfriends since kindergarten. She would play with whichever handsome man she could find… Cherry, who had a face complex, might very well turn like her.
Although Nora had not expressed her fondness for beauty yet, the days would pass. What if she was led astray?
Justin wanted to fundamentally eliminate this possibility!
Furthermore, he definitely, definitely, must not let Brenda and Cherry get together.
Brenda stared at him and narrowed her eyes slightly.
At the mention of that woman, Justin always looked cautious. Knowing her personality, he would not even allow her to see Nora. Brenda snorted and stood up, swaying her waist. "You refuse to let me see her, but I still want to see her. I want to see what kind of stunning beauty could mesmerize my brother! Anyway, I have nothing on in the morning and only have to meet someone at noon. I'll sit here. I don't believe that she can sleep until noon?"
Justin was silent for a moment before he suddenly stood up. "Okay, do whatever you want. I'll get going first."
Justin went upstairs and entered the study in the guest room to work.
Brenda really sat downstairs and looked at the people coming and going.
Louis was so frightened that he slipped out. When he passed her, Brenda was still looking at him. "Louis, what are you doing? Are you going on a date?"
Louis paused in his footsteps. "…I arranged to play games with Chester."
"Gaming?" Brenda smiled. "You're going to meet a girl, right?"
He answered seriously, "Brenda, it's really gaming!"
Brenda rested her chin on one hand and nodded with a smile. "I understand. You guys have to be careful. Remember to use protection. Don't fool around~"
He emphasized again. "Brenda, we're really just playing games!"
Brenda tilted her head and smiled. "I know. I'm talking about games too. Be ready. Don't get killed by others."
The corners of his lips twitched. "I'm leaving first!"
There was wind under his feet as if he was afraid that Brenda would say something shocking!
Brenda sat on the sofa and looked upstairs in boredom. Then, she looked at her watch. It was almost 11 AM.
Had Nora stayed up all night?
At this moment, the housekeeper Lucy brought her a fruit platter. Brenda took the opportunity to ask, "Did your Miss Smith stay up late last night?"
Lucy shook her head in confusion. "No, Miss Nora's schedule is very strict. Every night at 10 PM, no later than 12 PM, she will definitely sleep! Yesterday, she slept with Master Pete and Miss Cherry at 9 PM."
She slept at nine. Why was she still asleep?!
She must have slept for 14 hours.
She looked at Louis in confusion. "Is she feeling sick?"
Perhaps she was sick?
Lucy was unhappy. "Our Miss Nora is very healthy!"
What was Miss Hunt saying? Although she was quite good-looking and elegant, why was she cursing someone else to be sick?!
Brenda hesitated for a moment, but her voice was still elegant and charming. "Then she slept for 14 hours. Aren't you going to take a look?"
What if she's fainted in the room?!
Lucy looked unconcerned. "It's only been 14 hours. What's the rush?"
Miss Nora had slept for more than fifty hours in the past two days. Wasn't she still energetic?
Lucy shook her head and looked at Brenda. Brenda looked like she had never seen the world.
Brenda was speechless.
She felt like she was in a fantasy world.
When everyone from the Smiths came down for lunch, Maureen called out to her politely, "Miss Hunts, it's time to eat."
Brenda stood up and looked at the table full of people. She asked, "Aren't you going to wait for Miss Smith to come along?"
Maureen: "Oh, she probably wants to sleep for a while more. Let's eat first! Come on!"
Brenda was speechless.
She said in a daze, "There's no need. I'm meeting someone for lunch. I'll get going."
After she left the Smiths, she still felt dizzy.
The moment Brenda left, there was finally some movement on the bed upstairs.
Nora opened her eyes in a daze and took out her phone. She saw that there were a few missed calls on her phone.
They were all from Morris.
She hesitated for a moment before calling him. Morris picked up quickly. "Miss Smith, our department has formed a special team to investigate the human trial back then. Now, I would like to invite you to be our team's external forensic doctor. Are you interested?"
Nora stretched and was about to answer that she was not interested when she heard Morris say, "Don't you want to know what exactly happened to your mother back then? Also, I have some very important information about you. I wanted to inform you that you're actually in a lot of danger!"
These words made Nora narrow her eyes.
She recalled her mother's words. "…You have to be mediocre, or your life will be in danger!"
What kind of danger could she be in?!
Morris continued, "Of course, if you can join us, I'll tell you some secrets about the case!"
When Nora heard this, she lowered her almond-shaped eyes. "Tell me first."
