“Aunt Fion, Uncle Kent…”
Jeremy knew he could no longer keep it a secret. He turned around slowly and forced a smile.
His face was red, and his smile looked worse than crying.
“Jeremy? What… what’s this?”
Kent was also stunned as he sized up Jeremy, confused.
“Aren’t you getting a promotion?
“You said you were going to be in charge of the whole Jeanne District. Why…”
Fion widened her eyes and asked.
Jeremy tried to find some excuse to cover it up.
However, thinking Sean might have something to do with it, he dared not lie.
“Ahem, Aunt Fion, Uncle Kent…
“The higher–ups say I don’t have a solid foundation, so I need to refresh my work skills.
“So I have to start from the bottom up…”
Jeremy was silent for a few seconds but eventually said with a sullen expression.
Fion and Kent were confused.
They had no idea if Jeremy got a promotion, but it was true that he was now reduced to guarding the main gate.
‘Didn’t he say yesterday that he handpicked the position for Sean?
‘Why is he guarding the main gate himself now?‘
“Aunt Fion, what brings you here?”
Jeremy scratched his head and wanted to invite Fion and Kent inside.
However, he did not even have an office, so he could only forget about doing that.
“We did have something…
“We’re alright now.”
Fion shook her head and tried to suppress a smile.
She recalled what Jeremy said yesterday and looked at him now in a security guard uniform.
It was karma at work!
Fion would have laughed out loud if it had not been inappropriate.
“Alright, we’re going home if there’s nothing else.”
Fion waved her hand and turned to leave.
Kent looked at the plastic bag in his hand and was about to hand it to Jeremy.
They brought it for Jeremy after all.
Fion suddenly cleared her throat and grabbed it from Kent.
“Well, Jeremy. We gotta go!”
Fion glared at Kent and said while waving her hand.
“Oh, okay, Aunt Fion…
“Go back and tell Sean I didn’t mean it yesterday, and I hope he won’t take it to heart.”
Jeremy blushed and said humbly.
Fion waved her hand and quickly left.
Once they got into the taxi, Fion burst out laughing, unable to contain it any longer.
The driver at the front thought he ran into a lunatic.
“Hahaha. Old Kent, did you see that?
“He looks just like a monkey in that security suit. Haha!
“Oh, how delightful! Let’s go. I’m in a good mood today. Let’s buy some groceries. I’ll cook!”
