All Xyla Quest wanted to tell this person right now was ‘good job’. Xyla began to smile widely. Right then, it seemed almost as if she were brighter than the sun.
“Xyla, are you listening?” Lana Harrison asked.
“Yeah, I am listening. If you can’t find out who that person is, I’m sure he must be a big shot.” Xyla quickly returned to her senses.
Who was this person? He was unbelievably powerful.
“That’s for certain. I wonder what Emily and her mother have done to deserve such misfortune. It must be karma,” Lana said.
“Yeah,” Xyla said.
“They deserve it. I feel happy just thinking about it. Alright, you are probably busy this early in the morning. Aunty shall not bug you any longer,” Lana said.
“Alright. Aunty, let’s have a chat when we are free. Thank you, Aunty,” Xyla said.
“Don’t thank me, silly child. It’s what I should do anyway,” Lana said.
After hanging up, Xyla turned to face the sunlight before stretching her arms out.
When Jeremy Quest came to her mind, she immediately stopped smiling.
Once Xyla was done brushing up, she walked out of her room without any make-up on. Her long, black, wavy hair rested on her shoulders. With fair skin and red lips, her face looked almost like a peach blossom.
Xyla was only wearing an entirely white silk robe. Her fairy-like elegance complimented the simplicity of the outfit.
When Xyla went to the master bedroom, she realized that Jeremy was not there. Hence, she proceeded to walk downstairs to the dining room.
Right then, Jeremy was seated at the dining table while he read the newspaper. There were two glasses of warm milk glasses, sunny side up eggs, sandwiches, vegetable salad, fruit salad, wholegrain bread, and fresh orange juice. However, Jeremy had not touched any of them.
There was a tired look in his eyes, which he tried to hide behind the newspaper.
Xyla could immediately tell that he did not sleep well last night, making her feel even more saddened. She hurriedly walked over and sat down next to Jeremy. She pushed her head away from her face casually until they fell over her back. .
“Dad, are you okay?” She looked at him gently.
To be honest, she knew he was not in a good state without even asking.
Anyone else in the same position would not be in a good state. Although Jeremy had spoken fiercely to his wife and daughter, he still loved and cared about them. However, being tricked by the people closest to him, and even going through a painful divorce, Xyla could imagine how bad it felt.
Every human being had feelings.
“Yeah,” Jeremy uttered as he put the newspaper down and looked at Xyla blankly.
“The pain will come to pass. I will be by your side,” Xyla said while gently holding his hand.
Jeremy’s eyes turned red. However, he did not say anything and instead nodded and patted her hand lightly. After that, Jeremy picked up one of the sandwiches and placed it in front of Xyla.
“Alright, let’s eat. Let’s not talk about these sad things,” he said.
“Alright. Have a little more,” Xyla replied with a nod. However, she did not feel better at all.
“Xyla, take a few days off to rest and return to the headquarters after that. Just as I said before, you will become the new sales manager. I hope you can make us proud yet again,” Jeremy said as he chewed on his sandwich.
“Alright. I won’t let you down,” Xyla said confidently.
“Yeah. I have faith in you,” Jeremy said.
Meanwhile, at the police station, Emily Quest and May Conner had just finished eating and were washing the dishes in front of the kitchen sink. Thousands of oily chopsticks and bowls were piled up next to them with pieces of leaves all over them.
