Chapter 158 Interested in the Duran Group
Terrence withdrew his gaze calmly.
Then he asked in a casual way, “You only eat this?”
Hearing his question, Alexa tore open the bread in her hand and took a bite.
She replied with her mouth full, “Yes, I’m not particular about food.”
“Aren’t you taking medicine? Can your body stand it?”
Terrence gripped the steering wheel tightly. Dazzling neon lights constantly flashed through the window. He felt kind of annoyed.
“It’s okay.” Alexa shook her head. “I’m used to it.”
“You’re used to it? You never stop taking medicine?”
Terrence’s face suddenly became grim. He never knew her body was so weak.
Alexa did not care about it as much as Terrence did. She finished the bread quickly and looked up at
“Yes, my body is weak, so I’ve been taking medicine intermittently since I was a child.”
“What’s the problem?”
“No exact problem.” Alexa did not want to continue this topic. “It’s just that my body is weak.”
Terrence’s brow furrowed tightly. He felt so upset.
He did not say anything else. Alexa also lowered her head, lost in thought.
She felt her stomach was stuffy because of the bread. Unexpectedly, Terrence sped up the car. Right now, Alexa felt like she was being tortured.
When they finally returned to the Seafair Villa, Alexa could not wait to push the door open and get out of the car as soon as possible. The salty sea breeze freshened her up.
Terrence placed the car at the gate and followed behind her quietly.
Alexa looked back and slowed down her pace warily.
“You’re not leaving?”
“Leave?” Terrence chuckled. “You haven’t told me what happened between you and those two- people. Why should I leave?”
Alexa knew that Terrence would not let her go so easily, so she followed him silently.
However, Terrence did not continue to question her. Instead, he tied up his apron and went to the
Alexa carefully hung her coat on the rack and then looked at Terrence nervously.
“Do you want to eat something? How about I call the chef over?”
Terrence gave a brief answer. Then he skillfully prepared the ingredients.
Alexa left him in the kitchen and returned to her room.
Half an hour later, Terrence knocked on her door.
Alexa had just taken a bath and was wearing a thick cotton skirt. Her wet long hair was casually placed behind her back. Her skin was so delicate and untainted.
Terrence’s eyes could not help but darken, and then he unnaturally shifted his gaze away.
“What is it?” Alexa asked in confusion.
“Come to eat.”
Terrence did not wait for her reply. As soon as he finished speaking, he turned and went downstairs.
Alexa looked confused.
She muttered, “Eat?”
She followed Terrence to the dining room and saw that there were two bowls of congee on the table,
as well as some other dishes.
“Did you make all of this on your own?” Alexa was surprised at what she saw. Then she said,
Terrence’s expression did not change as he pulled out a chair and seated himself.
The congee and other dishes he made were indeed very tempting. Only then did Alexa feel that she was not full yet after eating the bread.
It was rare for her to have an appetite, so she began to dine.
Seeing that Alexa was eating very well, Terrence could not help but slow down his eating. He silently sized up Alexa with his calm and deep eyes.
“Didn’t you say you were not hungry?”
“I was not hungry, but now I am.”
Terrence silently curved his lips, and he suddenly felt relaxed a lot.
“Take it easy. No one will snatch it from you.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Alexa suddenly lowered her head and put down the spoon. She grabbed two pieces of tissue in a panic.
Alexa tried to restrain her tears, but her sniffs were still very obvious.
Terrence instantly became serious, and there was worry written in his eyes.
“My father used to make for me…”
When Alexa finished speaking, her voice was already hoarse.
The salty tears flowed into her lips, and she was even more choked.
Terrence walked behind Alexa. He lifted his left hand but did not put it on her back.
Terrence was a decisive man, but now he hesitated..
Alexa hated him very much, right?
Terrence’s eyes narrowed slightly, but in the end, he still retracted his hand.
He could only console Alexa, “Everything will be fine.”
Alexa lost both of her parents. How could everything be fine?
Alexa was so distressed that she felt like her heart was ripped open. She had been waiting for news
about Keyon anxiously.
Terrence might not know that she could not hold on until the day Keyon came back.
Alexa held her sorrow and slowly rose like a soulless
She expressed her gratitude slightly and left without looking back.
Terrence looked at her lonely back and quietly stood in place for a long time.
He could clearly feel that Alexa and he were going different ways. She was further away from him.
Terrence had mixed feelings. Suddenly, the screen of his phone lit up. He glanced at the message
and immediately left the house.
That night, Alexa couldn’t fall asleep.
Her body temperature was unstable, and her stomach hurt so much that she vomited several times.
Even though she had been fighting against the disease for a long time, Alexa was still very afraid.
She was trembling violently in the quilt. The painkiller she had just taken didn’t work at all.
She coughed violently.
Alexa covered her mouth with a handkerchief. Suddenly, her mouth was filled with a warm, rusty taste. She took a closer look and saw that the white handkerchief was covered in blood.
She was stunned and slid to the ground. Her tears once again covered her dry eyes, which were so
The next morning, the Hudson Group.
Terrence rubbed the space between his eyebrows and took a sip of coffee.
Edwin carried a large pile of documents into Terrence’s office. Like Terrence, Edwin was up all
“Mr. Ramsey, I’ve collected all the info you asked for.”
Terrence immediately put down the unfinished coffee and began to flip through the documents.
Edwin stood at the side.
Then he asked in confusion, “Mr. Ramsey, the Duran Group went bankrupt three years ago. Why are
Before Edwin finished his words, Terrence glanced at him indifferently.
Edwin knew Terrence was lying.
Edwin had been in Hudson Group for ten years, and he had never seen Terrence make any invalid
He suddenly took interest in the Duran Group. It must be because of Alexa.
Edwin was very happy but also felt worried.
“Mr. Ramsey, then the Walton family…”
“Do you need me to teach you what to do?” Terrence’s tone sounded ruthless. “Before they give us what we want, they are still of use.”
“Mr. Ramsey, we have been investigating that matter for eight years. Do you still want to
“Of course.” Terrence’s eyes turned cold. “I’ve been looking for her for eight years. How could I
