“Why can’t we eat meat? Our family eats meat every day!” Layla was puzzled and looked outside following Mrs. Cooper’s eyes.
“Today is your grandmother’s death anniversary. Your mother said to be vegetarian today to commemorate your grandmother.” Mrs. Cooper explained, “Layla, do you remember your grandmother?”
“I… Of course I remember my grandmother.” Layla said so, but in fact, her grandmother’s appearance in her heart was very light.
Grandma died too long ago.
She was too young at the time, and although Layla cried for her grandmother’s death at the time, the grief had long since faded away.
“Although there is no meat today, I put sugar. You can try it.” Mrs. Cooper coaxed, “I’ll make something delicious for you tomorrow morning.”
“I don’t like meat that much either.” Layla said, “I don’t need to eat meat.”
“Well. What did Aqi ask your mother for? It’s so mysterious.” Mrs. Cooper asked Layla in a low voice.
“I don’t know either. He didn’t tell me anything. I was doing homework in Teacher Larson’s study today, and he and Teacher Larson were staying in the living room. I heard the two of them chatting for a long time, I don’t know what they talked.” Layla took a bite of her meal.
Mrs. Cooper: “Aqi and you, Teacher Larson, are so speculative?”
Layla: “Teacher Larson sent two big packets of snacks to Uncle Aqi today…Mrs. Cooper, does Teacher Larson like Uncle Aqi?”
Mrs. Cooper: “It should be! Aqi looks like a talent, but it’s a bit dark… Your Teacher Larson has a good eye.”
Layla: “I also think Uncle Aqi is very handsome. But Uncle Aqi doesn’t seem to like Teacher Larson. Because Teacher Larson is Norah’s cousin, Uncle Aqi hates it very much.”
“Aqi didn’t do what he did. He really should be more careful. What if your Teacher Larson really has bad intentions?” Mrs. Cooper said, “Layla, your father shouldn’t have had an accident. We must keep this lesson in mind. In the future, apart from your relatives, you must not trust anyone at will.”
The front yard.
Aqi relayed to Avery what Katalina said to him today.
“Miss Tate, I don’t know if I should believe what she said. I didn’t tell her everything about my boss.”
“Does Katalina really say that?” Avery was very surprised.
Katalina actually wanted to help them by going to Norah’s place to collect information.
“It’s absolutely true. She looks like she doesn’t understand anything, but she actually said such complicated things. I feel like she might want to lie to us.” Aqi’s conditioned reflex felt that Katalina was the bait thrown by Norah.
“Aqi, don’t rush to deny her.” Avery frowned slightly, “Even if this is Norah’s plan, I would like to see what Norah will do in the future.”
Aqi said, “You mean, let me go to Act with Katalina?”
Avery said, “Yes. If she continues to talk to you about this topic tomorrow, you can follow her words. Let’s see what information she can get from Norah.”
Aqi: “Oh, okay…”
“Aqi, you look a little nervous.” Avery said, “If Katalina really wants to help us, it must be because of you.”
Aqi: “Miss Tate, don’t talk nonsense.”
Avery: “She sent me a message about Layla the past two days, and she had a chance to tell me about it. But she didn’t tell me. She told you that she wanted you to remember it. She’s good.”
“Even if she doesn’t have bad intentions, she wants to help us find the boss, but with her ability, she may not be able to help.” Aqi calmly said, “Miss Tate, we don’t need to hold her too much confidence. Besides, who knows if the boss’s business has anything to do with Norah. When Katalina said those words to me, it felt like she was fishing.”
“If she’s just catching your fish, think about it carefully and don’t be affected by other factors. Katalina may or may not be with Norah. If you’re interested in her, you can decide after getting to know her.” Avery reminded.
Aqi: “Miss Tate, are you all so casual when you fall in love? I’ve only known her for a few days!”
Avery: “I met your boss after we got married.”
Aqi: “… “
