On more than one occasion, Herbert had said that he had nothing to do with Caroline
But what he did remained in his words.
Caroline was still by his side, once, and even now!
According to Herbert’s character, if he really didn’t care about her at all and didn’t like her at all, would he allow her to appear in his life? Would he accompany her?
If he didn’t love her, would he keep her photo?
No, it was impossible!
I expelled Herbert.
The door blocked Herbert and I. I leaned against the wall, and tears flowed out of my eyes uncontrollably.
It was not until a long time later that I couldn’t hear what was happening outside that I reached out to open the door. There was no one outside. He had already left.
I felt even worse. My reason drove him away, but my feelings were tortured.
I felt like I was about to be torn apart…
No matter how uncomfortable it was, life still needed to continue.
I couldn’t let him ruin my life again.
I must pull myself together and work hard!
Time flew by quickly. It had been three days since Herbert went on a business trip. On this day, I was reading a case when my cell phone suddenly rang. I lowered my head and saw that it was a call from Gaynor. I quickly picked it up.
“Mr. Wharton, I’ve run into some difficulties right now. What should I do?” Gaynor’s voice was anxious.
Timmediately asked, “Gaynor, is there something wrong with you Lucas?” “No, Lucas is extremely good. I have a severe cold and am currently having a high fever. I am worried that it will infect Lucas, but I cannot find a suitable person to temporarily take care of Lucas. Mr. Wharton, what do you think we should do? The children’s immune system is weak. I do not wish for Lucas to suffer from a severe cold because of me.” Gaynor said.
I lowered my head and thought for a moment, then said, “I’ll go find a temporary nanny and take care of Lucas for you for a few days. After you recover, you will continue to take care of Lucas.”
“This won’t do. We can’t ask anyone to take care of Lucas. Mr. Wharton doesn’t want too many people to know about Lucas. If you want someone to take care of Lucas, it’d be best if it’s someone you trust very much.” Gaynor immediately rejected my idea.
“I have a lot of work to do in these two days. Even if I don’t work, I don’t know how to take care of a child.” I was a little anxious. Lucas was very important to Herbert, but my work was very important too.
Gaynor hesitated for a moment, and then suggested, “Do you have any female relatives or good friends you trust very much? Please ask them to temporarily take my place for a few days.”
“Okay, I’ll think about it. I’ll find someone to go to your place.” After that, I hung up the phone.
I thought for a few minutes in front of my desk, but I didn’t expect that there was a familiar and trusted woman around me.
Dong dong dong…
At this moment, someone suddenly knocked on the office door.
“Come in!” I shouted.
Bella pushed the door open and came in. She put the financial statement on my desk. “Boss, this is the payroll from last month. Please sign it if there’s no problem.”
My mind was filled with the matters of Lucas. I took the statement and signed it without looking at it. Then I pushed it to Bella.
Bella said, “Boss, you didn’t look at it at all.” “I trust you, give the salary according to this.” I stood up in front of the French window and thought about what to do with Lucas.
At this moment, I suddenly thought of something, so l immediately stopped Bella. “Wait!”
“Is there any problem?” Bella turned to look at me.
“Bella, can you do me a favor? I really can’t find a suitable person!” I stepped forward and held Bella’s shoulder anxiously.
Bella looked confused. “What? If I can do it, I will definitely help.”
“Yes, you can!” After that, I grabbed the financial statement from Bella and threw it on the desk. Then I took her hand and walked out.
“Hey, where are you taking me?” Bella asked in surprise.
“You’ll know when you get there.” I turned back and smiled at Bella, then I took her out of the door.
Familiar and trustworthy.
Bella was the best candidate!
I took Bella to my car.
I drove all the way to a community in the suburbs, and my car stopped in front of an exquisite villa.
“What’s this place?” Bella asked.
After parking the car, I said, “Bella, I have a very good friend. He is on a business trip now, so he hired a nanny to take care of his son. But the nanny got a severe cold. She was afraid that the virus would spread to the child, so she wanted to find someone to take care of the child at the last minute. You know that it is not safe to find a temporary nanny at the moment. I was very troubled just now, and only you can help me now.” I didn’t tell Bella that my “friend” was Herbert. I didn’t say that the child was the son of Herbert.
I guessed that he didn’t want others to know about this relationship, so I chose to keep it a secret.
It was only for a few days. When Gaynor returned to good health, she would come back.
I didn’t think there would be any problems!
Klein begged me to help take care of a child.
suddenly felt stressed. It was not difficult for me to do daily housework, but if I had to take care of a child, I was worried that I could not take care of him well.
“That child how old is he?” If he was at least three years old, there would definitely be no problem for me
“Eleven months.” Klein replied.
“Ah?” I didn’t expect that this child was so young, and he was less than one year old. How could I take good care of him?
“Come with me to take a look. You’ll definitely like the little fellow!” Klein didn’t allow me to continue to consider. He immediately got out of the car and pulled me into the villa. After the doorbell rang for a while, a woman in her forties came out and opened the door. “Mr. Wharton, you’ve finally arrived?” The woman was very happy to see Klein. She was just coughing, and her entire person seemed rather weak. “Gaynor, where’s Lucas?” Klein asked. “He’s inside.” Gaynor pointed inside the room. Hearing this, Klein walked into the manor, followed by me. The floor of the entire living room was covered with rubber mat. The furniture in the living room was also very simple. The sofa and tea table were all without sharp edges. There were no flower vases or other things that would easily fall. It could be seen that the owner really paid attention to the safety of the child. The large floor was filled with all kinds of toys. Bella searched for a long time, and finally found Lucas in a corner.
His hair was thick, his skin was white, and his eyes were beautiful. His blue eyes were round.
The little fellow was wearing a sky-blue hoodie and a diaper.
He’s very cute. When he smiled, he looked like an angel. I liked this little guy.
“Lucas, I’m here to see you!” Klein squatted down, clapping his hands towards Lucas. When Lucas heard someone call his name, he immediately threw away the toy in his hand, and then happily climbed over with his little hands and feet.
He was only 11 months old and did not know how to walk, but he climbed very fast.
Soon, he reached the front of Klein.
“Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah…” Lucas sat there while staring at Klein. He made a sound but no one knew what he was saying. Clearly, he knew Klein, and he was very familiar with him.
Looking at the lovely face, I couldn’t help laughing. I didn’t know why, but I feel very close to him when I saw him for the first time. This kind of intimacy made me want to hug him…
