Tanner smiled at him and said, “They will.
Soon, they arrived at the Hannigan manor. Tanner had informed them about their arrival, so Nathaniel and Mrs. Hannigan had been waiting for them in the living room. When they saw a woman and a kid walking into the living room with Tanner, both of them found it hard to believe it.
Holding Noah‘s hand, Tanner led Pearl up to them. “Dad, I‘ve brought your grandson and Pearl back to you.”
Noah subconsciously hid behind Tanner‘s leg and poked half of his head out to look at the two people in front of him.
Mrs. Hannigan‘s heart melted upon seeing how adorable Noah was. “Kid, come over here and let me take a look.”
Pearl squatted down and said something to Noah before he walked toward Mrs.
Mrs. Hannigan ran her hand over his head and said with a smile, ‘What a good kid.”
She then lifted her head to look at Pearl and said, “Pearl, it must have been hard on you.”
Pearl was momentárily stunned before shaking her head.
Standing up with the help of a cane, Nathaniel said, “Since you‘re back. I’ll go inform the servants to get the dinner ready.”
“Honey, you sit down.” Mrs. Hannigan stood up and pushed her husband back to his seat. “I’ll do it. You stay here and play with our
“But...” Honestly, it was exactly because Nathaniel did not know how to interact with kids that he wanted to go away. It was just that he did not expect his wife to see through his intention and push him back down.
Noah looked at Nathaniel. His eyes were bright and clear, as if there were stars in them.
Nathaniel–liked the kid very much. Just when he was thinking about how to talk to the kid, he saw the fruit on the table.
He took an apple and handed it to Noah.
Noah hesitated for a while before walking over and taking the apple. Before returning to Pearl, he said, “Thank you, Grandpa.”
After that, he ran toward Pearl and threw himself into her arms.
Nathaniel was delighted when Noah called him ‘Grandpa‘.
After having dinner, Pearl took Noah for a walk in the courtyard while Tanner looked at them from the balcony on the second floor
Mrs. Hannigan walked to him and said, ” Tan.”
She looked downstairs and continued. “Has Pearl said yes to marry you?”
Something flickered in Tanner‘s eyes as he parted his lips open. “Not yet: She hasn‘t said yes yet.”
Mrs. Hannigan sighed. “Your father is old, and his health is deteriorating day by day. The future of the Hannigans is on your shoulders, and I‘m sure your father is very happy that you have a son. Since she‘s willing to bring the kid back with you, you‘ll have to treat her well.
“I know,” Tanner replied as he gazed at Pearl. “I‘ll treat her well.”
In the reception room, Edward came to request Maisie to step in and persuade his daughter to go home.
Maisie knew what had happened that day, so she lifted her head when she heard his request and asked, “Mr. Xavier, can I ask you
Edward was stumped for a moment, and he nodded. “Yeah, sure.
“Ms. Xavier is your daughter, and I‘m sure you know her capability Inore than anyone else. Generally speaking, she‘s one of the people who has contributed plenty to Beyond Technology. Also, she‘s your daughter, so why don‘t you want to pass the company to her?”
Edward felt awkward when he heard Maisie‘s question. “Mrs. Goldmann, yes, it‘s true that Elaine is my daughter, but I don‘t want her to become too independent.
Running a company is something a man should do. A woman like her doesn‘t have to work so hard. I‘m just doing it for her own good.”
Yes I know you‘re doing it for her own good, but you don‘t understand what kind of lifestyle your daughter wants.” While Edward was stunned Maisie continued calmly. “Ms. Xavier has her own life goal and dream. She just doesn‘t want to choose an ordinary life like most people do.
Besides, you‘ve underestimated your daughter. After all, an excellent woman is not inferior to a man.”
