After all of that, Carla ignored Terence for a whole day.

No matter what Terence tried to say to her, Carla didn't pay him any attention as if her ears had been plugged with wads of cotton.

On that day, as soon as Sean came back from school, Terence immediately asked him to have a talk so he could ask for some advice.

"Sean, what's wrong with your sister? I have been trying to have some casual talk with her for a couple of times today, but all she ever did was ignore me!" Feeling so confused and upset, all Terence could do was complain to Sean when he reached home.

Sean put his schoolbag aside, sighed, and said, "Terence, actually, I heard what you told her yesterday. Is it really impossible for you to fall in love with my sister?"

Sean was only ten years old. But he lost both his parents at such an early age that he became more mentally mature a bit earlier than his peers. Therefore, he was able to comprehend what happened between Carla and Terence.

"Hmmm…"

Terence didn't know how to appropriately answer this question at the moment.

Sean continued to say, "Terence, my sister might always seem easy-going, not caring about the things that may upset her. However, she's actually very sensitive and delicate. Yesterday, everyone sensible could feel how much you like my sister after hearing you say those words to Karen. But later, you…"

The day before, they made somewhat of a racket in the living room that Sean couldn't help but stop doing his homework and eavesdrop behind the door.

Terence scratched his head, his face turning a bit reddish. At this moment, he heard some noise at the door, so he quickly fixed his posture.

Soon enough, the door flung open. It was Carla who just got home from grocery shopping.

"Sean, go back to your room and finish your homework first. I'll just call you when dinner is ready."

After sending Sean to his room, Carla immediately put on the apron and walked toward the kitchen.

A few minutes later, Carla inadvertently turned around, noticing that Terence was standing by the entrance of the kitchen.

"Carla..."

Carla disregarded his presence and went about washing the vegetables. Terence sighed, walked over to her, and grabbed her hand. "Carla, don't ignore me, please. Let's talk

to worry grandfather too much." Terence stood in the balcony with the silhouette of his back seeming so elegant and proud.

"You can tell my grandfather what I told you. But make sure that no one else knows about this. And you don't need to send anyone to pick me up. I will call you when I have finished handling everything well."

Race had taken care of Terence since he was a child. He was the only one whom Terence could trust besides his grandfather.

"Oh, Mr. Terence, why are you doing this? How are you going to adapt living alone outside? I have been the one taking care of you since you were a child. Your grandfather is so worried about you that he has suffered a heart attack for a number of times now. Doctors had to be at home every day, staying in so they could be around him at all times!"

Race worriedly informed him. When Mr. Terence disappeared, some people in the An family were actually delighted while others were worried.

People who were so concerned had lost their appetite and had been losing sleep. Whereas, the group of people who were ecstatic about it almost wanted to beat gongs and drums and set off firecrackers to celebrate.

"Please rest assured. Tell my grandfather that I am doing fine. I think he will understand and respect my decision."

Hanging up the phone, Terence deleted the number he had dialed.

Outside the window, dark clouds were gathering in the gray sky. It seemed that the rain could pour at any minute.

'Has Carla…

taken a raincoat with her?'
