The Three Little Guardian Angels, Chapter 1425
Lucy’s face turned burning red.
At that moment, the doorbell rang.
Lucy was startled, and she covered herself in the blanket.
“Do you think it is my sister?”
“Oh gosh! How am I supposed to tell her what I happened?’ I Seeing how nervous she was, Hector couldn’t help himself and let out a hearty laugh.
“I’ll go answer the door.”
He got up and put on his clothes.He went to open the door, but surprisingly, the one standing in front of the door was not Elaine but his father, Yorick.
Hector was stunned as he did not expect his father to show up there.
“Dad? What brought you here?”
“I’m here to see you.Your grandmother called you again yesterday…”
Yorick wanted to get into the house, but Hector did not allow him.He put himself i n front of the door and looked toward the master bedroom.
Yorick was momentarily stunned and saw a flitting figure through the slit of the door to the master bedroom.
His hunch told him that it was a woman.
After Lucy got herself dressed, she peeked through the slit of the door, but to her surprise, it was not her sister.
‘Is he Hector’s family?’
“Is there someone in your room?” asked Yorick.
“Yeah,” replied Hector.
Yorick nodded and continued calmly.
“So can’t I see her?”
Hector hesitated for a moment before replying, “She’s kinda shy…”
“I see…Well, if that’s the case, then maybe I should wait for you outside.”
“Nope! That’s not necessarily!”
Lucy came out of the bedroom and offered Yorick an embarrassed smile.She approached Hector and greeted Yorick with a smile.
“Nice to meet you, sir.I just live next door.You don’t have to go out.Since you guys still have things to do, I’ll go back first.”
She quickly returned to her apartment and slammed the door shut.She hid behind the door, and her heart was in her throat.She did not expect to meet Hector’s father so soon.She was not ready for it yet.
“Yo, you’re back,” Elaine said as she came out of the restroom with a toothbrush in her mouth.
“It seems like I’ve underestimated you.You’re faster than I thought you are.”
Lucy went back into her room.
Leaning on the door, Elaine continued.
“There’s no need to be embarrassed.Both of you are adults, so something is bound to happen since you’re in a relationship, right?”
When Lucy did not reply to her, she clicked her tongue and returned to the restroom to clean herself.
In the meantime, Hector got his father a cup of water and said, “Since my grandmother has already told you everything, I’m not going to beat around the bush anymore.”
He took a seat on the couch and said, “I have no intention of helping them.My cousin-in-law acquired the company, and I’m just helping him to manage it.I have my own things to do, and I don’t have time to help them.If they stab me in the back, how am I going to face Maisie and my cousin-in- law?”
Yorick kept his head low and replied, “I understand.You don’t have to care about what your grandmother says, and I’m not here to persuade you to help them either.”
He knew his mother very well.
Besides, his son had turned a new leaf and become a lot better than he used to be in the past.
Even his current wife supported his son’s ideas, so he had no reason to force him to go back to the way he was.
After all, everyone needed to grow up.
Yorick lifted his head as if he thought of something.
“Hecky, that girl is your girlfriend, right? How long have you guys been seeing each other?”
Hector pressed his lips and replied, “Just recently.”
Yorick said seriously, “I know it’s about time for you t o get into a relationship.It’s good to have a girlfriend as well, but could she be like that one—”
“Nope, she isn’t.”
Speaking of that woman, Hector did not hate or resent her.
Instead, he felt that he should thank her.
After all, she was the one who taught him to be realistic.
“That’s good then.I don’t think she’s that kind of woman either.However, if your grandmother learns that you’re seeing someone, I’m sure she’ll ask many things about her.”
It went without saying that Hector knew it as well.
Maisie was sipping on her coffee to keep herself awake in front of the ceiling-to-floor window.She was aware that the relatives from the Vanderbilts had visited Hector in Zestar.
Hector had refused to help them, and she was certain they must have complained about it to Heidi.
