Chapter 880 Queenie Schmidt
Nora drove to the castle where Queenie lived.
Over the years, NTT had become the largest company in Switzerland after it was founded by Queenie. Moreover, she loved living a luxurious lifestyle, so she had built a castle in the country.
The castle was an impregnable fortress. Even if Barbarian knew that they were here, unless he dropped a nuclear bomb on the castle, it was impossible for him to blow up the place.
All the architecture she saw along the way as she drove was European-style, the castle was gorgeous.
As soon as Noras car arrived at the entrance of the castle, the huge iron gates opened automatically. There, John, the butler, greeted her in person. When he saw Nora, he said with a smile, Good day, Ms. Nora.
Nora nodded at John. However, she did not get out of the car but continued driving further into the castle.
It took more than ten minutes to drive from the entrance to the place where Queenie lived, which went to show just how expansive the castle grounds were.
At last, the car stopped in front of a villa. Nora had only just parked the car when Cherry, Pete, and Xander came running out of the villa.
Cherry hugged Nora and said, Mommy, I miss you so much! Its only been a day but it feels like forever since I last saw you!
Pete also grabbed her hand and looked up at her fondly.
Nora took the opportunity to squat down and give Cherry a kiss. She also pecked Pete on the cheek. Petes cheeks were all red and he was very content.
Xander adopted a c.o.c.ky act and snorted derisively when he saw the two childrens behavior. He commented, You two havent weaned off your moms milk yet, have you?
But Nora grabbed him and kissed him on the cheek too.
Xander immediately put on a disgusted expression. As he wiped off the non-existent saliva on his cheek, he said, Yuck, dont you find that filthy?
His eyes, however, were sparkling.
At a young age, he had already learned to say one thing when he really meant another.
Nora ruffled his hair and then led the three children into the villa.
Nora felt exceptionally relaxed, both physically and mentally, here.
Back then, after her aunt took her away, shed lived here for five years. This place was like her real home and was also the first place to have given her a sense of security.
Upon entering the living room, she looked at the woman sitting on the sofa.
The woman was in her forties, yet she looked like she was only in her early thirties. When she stood next to Nora, one would believe it even if they were told that the two of them were sisters.
She gave off a different feeling from Iris.
Iris was like a celestial maiden, ethereal with an otherworldly beauty.
Queenie, however, was arrogant and flamboyant. Clad in a red silk nightdress, her nails were painted scarlet and she held a gla.s.s of red wine in her hand as she leaned against the sofa. Her eyes were bright and teasing as she looked at Nora. Wow, you actually remembered to come home?
Nora smiled and sat beside her. She took her arm and said, Hi, Aunt Queenie.
Queenie snorted and said, And here I thought youve already forgotten that you still have an aunt in me. Youre really something now, arent you? To think you didnt come to me after you came to Switzerland, ha!
Cherry ran over and hugged Queenies arm. She said, Dont be mad at Mommy, Grandaunt Queenie! Mommy really misses you very much, its just that she has a bit of work to do. She was afraid that you wont let her work if she came back, thats why she stayed elsewhere instead! Although we didnt come back, we still thought of you every day~
Queenie immediately put her arms around Cherry and pecked her on the cheek. Oh, my precious little baby. Why is your tongue so sweet?
Cherry burst into giggles.
Nora also breathed a sigh of relief.
Her aunt had a bad temper, and when she got mad, it scared even her.
Back then, when she gave birth in the States and almost died, her aunt had returned to the country and then taken her abroad without a word. But after that, she had ignored her for half a year.
Nora and her aunt had been in contact since she was a child. Her aunt had even wanted to take her abroad when she unexpectedly became pregnant, but Nora had refused.
At that time, she had felt that staying in the country would be more comfortable since there was no one bothering her.
This led to her nearly having a lethal complication that year.
After being mad at her for half a year, her aunt finally broke the silence and spoke to her only because Cherry was simply too adorable.
Pete and Xander stood at the side and looked at the grandaunt whom they didnt know. After Queenie had her fill of kissing Cherry, who was in her arms, she finally asked, By the way, wheres your Mr. Hunt? How come hes not worried about leaving you here alone?
Nora heaved a silent sigh and answered, I dont know where hes gone.
Queenie snorted coldly and said, All these men! None of them are reliable! On top of fighting with Barbarian, they even tried to rob you of your things, yet he didnt even show up! Whats the use of having a man like him? If you ask me, you should just come to me with the children, instead!
Nora smiled and replied, Thats exactly what I have in mind. You gotta keep your word, okay?
Queenie choked. A moment later, she curled her lips and said, Forget it, your Mr. Hunt is not someone to be trifled with.
Her reply, however, made Nora frown. She suddenly asked, Aunt Queenie, you seem to know Justin? Who on earth is he? How come even someone like you are in awe of him?
Awe? What nonsense! Cmon, can you hold a conversation or not?! Im reluctant to go against him only because things will become very troublesome if I mess with him! Do you think Im afraid of him?
Queenie raised her gla.s.s of red wine and took a sip. Then, she gave her a wink and said, But if you want to know, I can let you in on a secret
Queenie raised her chin at Nora.
Nora leaned over and brought her ear closer. Then, she said, Aunt Queenie, compared to Justin, Im actually more interested in your secrets. Who on earth are you?
