Chapter 148

Louis smiled while speaking but Genevieve believed him. ‘Didn’t he prove himself again in the hail of bullets just now?’ she wondered.

He

gave her a sense of security and warmth.

She said, “I know but you should also protect yourself. We have to live well!” Then, she questioned. internally, “Why do we have to define true love in terms of life and death? What I wish for is that our loving relationship will last forevermore.”

He felt his heart skip a beat. Shocked, he repeated her words mentally, ‘We have to live well!”

Louis gazed into her eyes. Then, he grinned with an enigmatic gaze.

Soon, he chuckled and held her hand. “Yes, we have to live well.”

The car headed for the manor.

Right then, Louis‘ phone rang.

He glanced at it indifferently. He didn’t pick up and simply hung up.

The phone rang again but he hung up.

Then, it became quiet in the car.

Genevieve was peacefully admiring the scenery outside. “Since the David problems are solved now, can I go back home now? I miss Mom and Dad so much.”

Louis‘ eyes darkened and he held her hand a bit more tightly. “Aren’t you happy being with me?”

“Of course. It’s not that. It’s just…” Genevieve paused. “It’s not something conflicting. You can still come back with me but your project here is still unfinished. Wouldn’t you be too busy to come with

me?”

Louis pursed his lips and declared, “This is different. We can’t go back yet for the time being.”

Genevieve frowned and was about to speak when they entered the manor.

Louis exited and opened the door for her. “You can rest first. I’m going to handle something.”

Genevieve nodded. She turned and went in without asking further, but she wondered, ‘Is it about David? Although Louis seems gentle, he still has a lot of things.he’s keeping hidden from me. From his conversation with David, it’s clear that the Fallon family was not a happy place to grow up in. After so many years of enduring all this, he’d surely seek a chance to turn the tables, but he doesn’t want to talk about it, so I won’t ask for now.”

Onaa cha une finally safe to relax, she felt her body.

‘Maybe I was in too much shock?’ she wondered. Then, she took a bath to relieve her fatigue and

felt much better.

The whole manor was extremely quiet.

She was looking forward to going back with Louis, thinking Darrell and Samantha would definitely be surprised to see them. She also anticipated the looks on Lauraine’s and Andrea’s faces when they saw her return alive. Sooner or later, she had to return anyway. She wanted to chat with Louis but he seemed to be taking a while and wasn’t back yet. Without realizing it, she fell asleep on the bed.

It was such a long sleep that she only woke up at noon.

She washed up and went downstairs.

The maid immediately served the prepared breakfast. “Good morning, Mrs. Fallon. Does the food suit you? If not, we can go prepare something else.”

Genevieve glanced at the food smiling. “It’s good. I just woke up so a simple, light meal will do.” Then, she monologued silently, ‘Gah! I’m embarrassed for waking up so late. Luckily, I can use the excuse that I’m unwell. After that, she asked, “Has Louis left?”

“Mr. Fallon… still hasn’t returned,” the maid answered truthfully.

Genevieve paused. “He never came home?”

Genevieve was surprised. No matter how late she woke up, she’d still see him almost every day.

It’s rare for him to stay out all night.

‘Perhaps he’s met with something tricky? Since he’s got David in his control, I guess I finally have some more freedom, she thought. Once she was done with breakfast, she wanted to leave the manor for a walk.

Awkwardly, the maid explained, “Mrs. Fallon, after what happened yesterday, Mr. Fallon’s worried about you and asked that you not go out these next few days.”

Genevieve’s expression stiffened. “He didn’t tell me.”

“He said so before he left, Mrs. Fallon. We can help you with whatever you need.” The maid stood smiling and blocked Genevieve’s way.

Genevieve was silent for a moment. ‘Well, I’m unhappy. I can’t even think of a reason why I’m not allowed to leave but the maid and the butler are just blocking me. I don’t think they’re going to let me leave,’ she sighed internally. She returned upstairs feeling a little disappointed.

For the whole day, Louis didn’t show up.

Genevieve didn’t get to leave either so she was getting upset. ‘How could Louis have done this without even telling me?‘ she grumbled internally,

Just then, she heard a car horn.

When she looked out, she saw a pink Maserati being blocked from entering again.

Genevieve’s heart trembled and she ran down immediately. “Let her in,” she stood not far away, looked at the butler, and ordered.

The busier looked at her in a dilemma. “Mrs. Fallon, Mr. Fallon has ordered that…”

“Let her in. I’ll bear all consequences.” Genevieve’s cold expression and detached attitude made the help wary.

The owner of the pink Maserati couldn’t help but get out and stand up.

Yvette shouted at the top of her voice, “Ms. Linda Hoffman asked me to bring a gift for you, Genevieve. Open the door now!”

The butler knew that Louis had taken Genevieve to Linda’s place the other day.

No one expected Yvette to change her attitude so quickly.

Under Genevieve’s intense glare, the butler had no choice but to open the door.

Yvette whistled and drove the Maserati in satisfaction.

Genevieve’s heart raced, but she feigned calmness and waited for Yvette to come over. She greeted, “Ms. Schmidt, we meet again.”

Yvette gave her a look and smiled. Then, she shoved a champagne–colored gift box to her and invited herself in.

Genevieve uttered, “I can’t have you come all the way here without offering you anything. How about a cup of coffee?”

Yvette replied, “Sure.”

Genevieve followed behind and informed the maid, “Just send the coffee upstairs.”

“Will do,” she promised.

They were all worried that Yvette would bully Genevieve.

After all, Genevieve seemed to be good–tempered and looked like a softie.

Yvette went up to the small second–floor living room balcony herself and sat down.

She felt the texture of the custom–made couch, looked at the dazzling bright diamond ceiling lamps, and sighed. “He really likes you!”

Genevieve was stunned. She could tell that Yvette was neither being mocking nor sarcastic, but hearing it made her feel uncomfortable. “Ms. Schmidt, are you here for something?” Saying that, the put the box aside and glanced at her.

Chapter 148

Yvette looked much more relaxed than last time. This time she wasn’t sobbing. “Open it…

Genevieve did so nervously.

However, when she saw what was inside, she almost jumped in excitement. “A cellphone!”

Raising an eyebrow, Yvette reminded, “Don’t get too excited, Genevieve. Can you pick it up and

have a look? Does it work?”

Genevieve’s smile froze.
