Other than smile bitterly, what else could he do in response?
Moreover, while he was distracted, Alice mustered the courage to stand on her toes and plant a gentle kiss on his lips.
Edgar was stunned. What the heck was going on? Alice had gotten through his defenses with a surprise kiss?
However, he could not bring himself to get upset with her.
In the end, he chatted with her for a while more before he managed to get away when the minister interrupted their conversation by asking Alice to handle the domestic affairs of the country.
Joe shook his head as she left, thinking about how he had ended up having more love troubles.
However, he did not feel as bothered as he used to feel. It was his destiny and there was nothing he could do to stop it.
Joe did not attempt to hide it from Faye either. Joe called her at once and told the truth about Alice.
Upon hearing his explanation, Faye was not angry. On the contrary, she said in a playful tone, “Of course. You’re very popular with the girls these days, Sergeant Larson.”
“You have girls falling for you all over the world. You’ve even managed to capture the heart of the future Queen of Yingland now. Very impressive.”
Edgar said bitterly, “Stop teasing me, Faye. The relationship between Alice and I is not like that.”
After being married for so many years, Faye understood how Edgar’s mind worked.
She chuckled and said in a relaxed tone, “She’s deeply in love with you, so pay her a visit every once in a while. Oh and bring her home with you next time so I can get acquainted with her as well.”
Edgar felt immensely touched upon hearing that.
Joe could tell from Faye’s tone that she was not forcing herself to say and was totally sincere, so he sighed in relief. Joe would not dare to ever interact with women anymore if he noticed that such actions were hurting Faye.
Moreover, given his destiny, it was utterly impossible for him to stop women from falling for him whenever he spoke with them!
Joe felt troubled by the issue.
Next, Edgar called up Shaelyn and told her about Alice as well.
In comparison, Shaelyn was even more open minded than Faye. In fact, she clapped with joy. “Fantastic. Someone has finally arrived to share my burden, hah-hah-hah. When are you going to bring her home so we can meet her, Edgar?”
Edgar was rendered speechless by her excitement.
That was just how Shaelyn was. She was a mistress, so when she was living with Faye, she was in constant fear of Faye. She kept it hidden, but that was how she truly felt.
If Alice joined them, Shaelyn would see her as the younger mistress, so she would be able to bully her.
According to Shaelyn, Alice was a great addition. She would be sharing Shaelyn and Faye’s burden because Edgar’s drive was so high that not even the combination of his wife and mistress was enough to satisfy him.
Edgar could only shake his head after hearing Shaelyn’s theory.
However, he felt relieved in the depths of his heart, not because Faye and Shaelyn were willing to take in Alice, but because both of them did not feel hurt by it.
After hanging, Edgar did not hesitate and immediately headed to Murica.
As soon as he walked out of the Queen’s residence, he could feel that someone was following him. Moreover, whoever it was must have been an absolute powerhouse!
