Of course, it was impossible for a shrewd woman like Hannah not to be aware of Morten’s abnormality, and she always felt that he was not as fervent as before. The feelings had not diminished, but the initiative seemed to have weakened a little.
Then, Morten found that Hannah would find excuses to check his phone from time to time. She even sat in his arms very actively, and while making out, she sniffed everywhere like a dog, as if she wanted to find the smell of other perfume like in her imagination.
“Wait. Why do you have the smell of perfume?” Hannah asked intentionally.
“I have?” He asked calmly.
She lowered her guard a little, smelled it carefully, and said, “It smells like hospital disinfectant?”
He said casually, “Oh… A friend got sick recently, so I spent a lot of time in the hospital.”
Naturally, the smell of disinfectant wouldn’t make her think too much, so she blinked her eyes and didn’t pursue the origin of the smell anymore. However, she forgot how could such a withdrawn person like Morten have any friends.
“Officer Evans, I heard from my friend that she saw you were shopping with a girl,” Hannah said suddenly.
“Nonsense. I haven’t been shopping in the past few days!” He sneered. “What are you suspicious of?”
“Nothing,” She smiled and shook her head.
If Morten made an excuse to say that he was with Wendy or someone else, then Hannah would definitely continue to doubt him further. But he said directly that he had never gone shopping, which made Hannah feel more at ease.
He said casually, “Then, why are you acting so weird today?”
She said, “Who was weird? I just think there’s something wrong with you, and your enthusiasm for me seems to have receded recently.”
Morten replied, “How could it be? It’s just that you are always with your mother recently, and we don’t have much time to stay together.”
Hannah took out a pen from her pocket, gave it directly to him, and said, “It’s for you. The limited edition Parker Pen that I specially ordered on the Internet. Be careful with it.”
Morten accepted it unceremoniously.
Hannah said, “My birthday is coming soon. You need to get ready to meet my mother.”
“Well, don’t worry,” He said lightly.
After getting off work, Morten received a call from Natalie.
He had no choice but to rush to the Johnson family immediately. Her complexion improved a lot, and the gauze on her head was removed, but she still had occasional headaches.
“Honey, this is a gift from me!” Natalie took out a valuable lucky charm from her pocket after Morten entered the door.
He took it and said, “Oh, thank you!”
He found that she was staring at him, and he couldn’t help but freeze.
Natalie was a little disappointed and said, “Is there any gift for me? Today is the anniversary of the first time we met!”
He was taken aback again, thinking if there was such a thing. It hadn’t been a year since he came back to meet Natalie this time.
“Natalie is talking about the first time you met when you were kids. It was probably on this day. I don’t even remember, and I didn’t expect her to remember. Don’t worry, Natalie. Morten must have prepared a gift for you,” Hector explained from the side and smoothed things over for Morten by the way.
She looked at Morten and said, “Really? You should remember, right? You must have prepared a gift for me!”
He immediately patted his chest, and said as a matter of course, “That’s for sure. How could I not prepare a gift for you?”
After saying this, he took out the Parker Pen that Hannah had given him in his pocket, and gave it to Natalie.
“Look, this is the limited–edition Parker Pen I prepared a long time ago. It was specially bought from an online auction, and it’s specially prepared for you as a gift!” He was very generous to have a gift of the pen.
“With this pen, you can handle your work well in the office. Every time you sign, you can think of me. Then, think of my encouragement to you, so that you can work harder and create a better future!”
She was so moved by his rhetoric that her eyes were full of tears.
She carefully held the pen in her arms and said, “Thank you, hubby!”
Morten grinned and said, “You’re welcome!”
At the same time, he was a little surprised that he didn’t expect her to remember when the two met for the first time when they were kids. It seemed that in her heart, he was not so unbearable!
Thinking of his previous experiences, she told him to run away first when he got into trouble. Now that he thought about it carefully, he realized she was concerned about him.
He was actually good at doing this bullshit. Morten gave the gift Hannah gave him to Natalie without blinking, and made up a set of lies. He really got the talent to be a f*ckboy.
“Hahaha! Everyone is happy now. Come and eat!” Hector said happily.
“Okay, thank you, Uncle Hector,” Morten replied.
Natalie blinked and asked curiously, “Hubby, why do you call my dad uncle? He is your father–in–law!”
Hector hastily smoothed things over and said, “That’s because Morten has been calling me that since he was a kid, and he can’t change it for a while. Don’t you remember?”
She nodded thoughtfully, and said, “It seems to be the case…”
Morten gave Hector a thumbs up, telling him that he was very clever. However, Hector was depressed by this praise.
If he had insisted on his own ideas at the beginning, and asked Morten to change what to call him, it wouldn’t be like this now!
Seeing Natalie playing with the newly acquired Parker Pen, Morten said, “Natalie, you have to keep this pen safe. To avoid losing it, you should keep it in the office to sign documents only. Don’t carry it around.”
He said this in advance, lest Natalie would carry it with her, and if Hannah saw it, his Shuraba would come in advance.
She nodded immediately, and said, “Don’t worry, honey. I will take good care of it and I will just listen to you, leaving it in the office for work only!”
He nodded to show his satisfaction.
Seeing that it was getting late, Morten was ready to go back, but Natalie said, “I’ll go back to Almonube Palace with you!”
The fact that he lived in Almonube Palace still existed in her memory, which was very impressive.
Hector hurriedly said, “Natalie, Morten has been busy recently, and your injury hasn’t healed yet, so don’t bother him now.”
“Oh, I forgot that my husband is helping Giradia Group now, and he’s been quite busy lately!” She said after regaining consciousness.
It seemed that she remembered many things about Morten very clearly, but she forgot a lot of details. Most of those details would make her feel embarrassed when she remembered them.
“Hubby, you should take good care of yourself, remember to rest, and don’t be too busy!” She said softly, “I feel much better, and I will try to go to work tomorrow!”
“Okay! Okay. Let’s work hard together!” Morten said perfunctorily.
After leaving the Johnson family, he breathed a sigh of relief. Fortunately, she didn’t insist on going back with him.
Hannah had a key card and might come by at any time, and if she saw Natalie, it must be Shuraba for him!
