The smile on Matthew's face vanished like dust swept away by the wind. His breathing became labored after the young master mentioned Donald Pasmod's name. His heart, which had been warmed by Jack and Claire's sweet story of friendship, suddenly became anxious."What's wrong Matthew?" asked Jack who saw the change in his subordinate's expression."Young Master," Matthew paused to take a breath. His breathing was heavy. There was no denying that he feared for Jack's safety every time Donald Pasmod's name was mentioned.What Matthew felt was natural; he understood how dangerous Donald Pasmod was. And Matthew certainly didn't want anything bad to happen to his master.More than that, Matthew knew very well that Tom Roodenburg's happiness was complete with the presence of Jack who was finally found after decades of searching. He couldn't imagine that something untoward would diminish the old man's happiness.Jack remained silent, waiting for Matthew to continue. However, it was not Matthew
Claire didn't stop talking during the trip. She was very excited. Not only was she happy to be able to take her friend for a drive in a new car, but she was also excited that she would soon know where Jack lived.Claire turned her head briefly to look at Jack's face. As long as he was talking, Jack only gave simple answers. Claire furrowed her brows before refocusing her gaze forward."Jack, why do you look worried?"Jack gasped. He grimaced while showing his row of white and clean teeth. "Really? Um, maybe I'm just tired. It's been a long day." He smiled silly remembering what he had done while worrying about Claire."Are you sure you're not hiding something from me?""That's too hard to do. Even if I speak silently, you'll probably hear it."Claire chuckled. She nodded before asking, "So, where do you live now? You haven't told me either. I can't go there if you don't mention the address. There will be an intersection soon, should I go straight, turn right, or go left?""Um, that's.
Claire paused for a moment to stare meaningfully at Jack. But she quickly controlled her feelings. She quickly sat up and pursed her lips."Don't tease me! If your girlfriend who is the manager of the clothing store sees us, she'll think all kinds of things." Claire's voice sounded annoyed.Jack sat up immediately. He brought his face closer to Claire's. "Are you jealous of Audrey?"Claire replied in a raised tone, "Why would I be jealous?!" Claire didn't understand why she couldn't keep her voice from speaking in such a tone. Come to think of it, she could have said it in a normal voice, especially since Jack was sitting nearby. Her voice could easily be heard by Jack, even if she was whispering."Why aren't you jealous?" Jack propped up his chin.Claire giggled as she watched Jack's eyebrows rise and fall. She threw a small pillow at Jack."You never answer questions correctly! At least answer my questions first, instead of asking questions back."Clap!Jack clapped his hands once,
Jack hurriedly went to Claire's house which was only a few tens of meters away from where he was standing now. The man's jaw seemed to harden due to the obscurity that made him so tense.Upon arriving in front of Claire's house, Jack stopped his steps. The door of Claire's house was tightly closed. The house also looked very quiet as if there were no occupants. This was definitely strange because Claire spent most of her time babbling. After all, before this he still heard Claire talking excitedly to Uncle Bob.Then where were they now?Jack took another step towards the door of Claire's house. As he stood in front of the door, Jack knocked hurriedly."Claire, open the door! It's me Jack!" Jack spoke in a loud voice.But there was no answer from inside the house. The house was completely deserted!Then Jack knocked on the door once more. "Uncle Bob, are you inside? Open the door, Uncle. Please! It's me Jack."There was still silence.The situation made Jack's previously relieved heart
Inside his room, Jack was feeling a little anxious. He didn't know what exactly happened at Claire's house until she disconnected the call without explaining anything. Jack talked to himself, "What if the visitor turns out to be a salesman? Is it possible that the salesman has bad intentions towards Claire? All this time he came and offered Claire condoms for no reason. Maybe he's been eyeing Claire for a long time." Jack began to wonder.At the thought of that, Jack's heart became even more uneasy. He looked at the clock on the wall. "There's still time," he said. Even if it wasn't resolved in time, he would cancel his dinner with Matthew.In the end, Jack decided to go to Claire's house instead. He wanted to make sure that his best friend was okay. Jack immediately asked one of his bodyguards to take him to Claire's house. "Quickly go to Claire's house, but drop me off at a place a little far from her house," he ordered with a frown on his forehead."Yes, young master."They rus
Claire walked quickly towards the door. Her chest felt hot like it was going to explode. When she stood behind the door, Claire took off her shoes. She lifted them with her right hand while her left hand prepared to open the door. As for her cell phone, she clamped it using her shoulder and ear."You'll see I'm going to embarrass you today!"Claire pulled the door handle slowly. When the door opened, she swung her shoe to throw it at the incoming guest."Miss!" shouted a man standing in front of Claire's door. The man closed his eyes while wrapping his hands around his head.Knowing that her guest was not a salesman as usual, Claire put her shoes back on. She stared at the man in front of her, looking at him from head to toe.In her heart, Claire said 'Who is he? He looks classy. It's a good thing I kept my shoes on.'When Claire said that in her heart, from behind the phone Jack asked, "How's it going Claire? Who came to your house? Was it a condom salesman?"Claire then put her cell
Jack's sudden appearance startled Renee and Bruce. "Renee, I'm glad to see you're awake. Why did you come downstairs? Let's go back to bed. Don't know why the doctor didn't come. Maybe it's because of the traffic. You just lie down comfortably while waiting for the doctor."Renee glanced at Bruce. She immediately looked down realizing Bruce was glaring at her. Therefore, Renee was forced to reply, "No need, Young Master. I'm already fine. Thank you very much for your kindness, Young Master.""Don't be shy. Lie down first at least until the doctor comes. If the doctor has confirmed that you are fine, you can return to your room to rest."Hearing that, Bruce immediately waved his hand. "No need, Young Master. Renee is already fine. Please let her go back to work. Otherwise, Renee will cry all night because she feels like a useless servant. If that happens, she will make the other servants sleepless, Young Master." Bruce was obviously lying. He had to because he did not want Renee to be
After arriving at his room, Jack took a shower. It had been a tiring day because of Mary and her friends. However, he was happy that Uncle Bob had finally recovered and come home from the hospital.Jack wiped his wet hair with a towel. His eyes fell on the rest of the money Claire gave him that was placed on the table. Jack smiled remembering his best friend.Changing habits was not an easy thing. Since Jack didn't know his true identity, Claire and Uncle Bob often helped him in difficult times. It was still warm in Jack's memory when Uncle Bob gave him all the money from the sale of the decorative table to pay for his treatment at the hospital. At that time Jack was suffering from dengue fever. He had also been living alone for quite some time after the death of his nanny, Jane Marshall.Jack walked over to the table. He sat on the premium chair and took the money from Claire."She was a good girl." Jack's heart tingled as he remembered Claire giving him a wad of his savings to pay f
