"Um... Hey, Karen just called. She said there'd be a party tonight and asked me to take you and Sean along with me,"

Carla explained herself before Terence could say anything. Actually, she didn't even catch a single word from the call because he hung up right before Carla could come closer.

"You know what? I actually have some errands to run tonight. Why don't you go ahead and bring Sean with you?"

Terence told Carla with his eyes locked onto hers. Stepping toward the groceries, he picked them up from the table and walked directly toward the kitchen.

"Something's not right," Carla mumbled to herself as she walked over into her own room.

The night had fallen.

"Sean, there's somewhere I need to go to later. Behave yourself and have all your homework done. I'll be back soon!" Immediately after Terence left the house, she tossed those words to Sean and went outside in a hurry.

"Hey, Carla. Are you going on a date with Terrence? Hurry up and go quickly! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!" Sean grinned from ear to ear and teasingly yelled at her, throwing her an I-know-everything face.

"What the hell are you talking about?! A date? I ain't got time for that! I have something way more important to attend to. Remember this, if Terence somehow asks you about where we were earlier tonight when he returns, tell him that we went to Karen's party. Is that clear?!"

Carla opened her eyes wide and round, and tried to threaten her little brother.

As soon as she was done talking to Sean, she walked toward the door swiftly to catch up to him.

In Carla's mind, this man had been living in her place for a while now. However, nothing about his background had ever slipped out of his mouth. It was as if an invisible barrier had been placed around him, guarding the secret of his mysterious identity. Finally, her "Sherlock" intuition had detected a few hints earlier that day and caught the opportunity.

How could she just let the trace slip away so easily?

Why would she?

Of course, she wouldn't miss this perfect opportunity!

Carla was extremely eager to know who he really was and what he was hiding exactly.

After hailing a taxi, she followed him to the first spot, a shopping mall. She then asked the driver to wait with her in the car as she peered directly toward the gate through the window. When Terence finally came out from the mall, Carla almost choked up.

Terence changed his style drastically, much too different from what he had been wearing at home. Switching his T-shirt with a light cream polo shirt, it appeared as if it had been tailored to fit his body perfectly. The obviously pricey pants that he was wearing were simple but elegant. And last but not the least, he was wearing a pair of classy shoes designed by a well-known brand, which surely might've cost a fortune.

Carla paused for a moment, and her heartbeat nearly stopped. The window of the taxi was like a wall that had separated two completely

ng. There was a time when I still wished for him to recognize my efforts, but his actions spoke for him. Not being able to let go of the past, he couldn't move on even after all these years."

Terrence sighed as he held Nicholas's hands and helped him sit down on the sofa.

"Terence, you can rest assured that I won't be tolerating such misbehavior. Something has to be done so that he won't dare to touch you again. I've already informed your father earlier to transfer Marcus's work to the NF City. Since that bastard and his men are gone, let's go back together!"

Nicholas stated with a firm tone and gently patted on his shoulder.

Terence knew that Marcus would never leave his plan half done. Putting a bitter smile on his face, he responded, "Grandfather, you might think that Marcus has left for NF City. However, those men who are loyal to him haven't moved an inch. Even if I go back with your protection, I would still have a target on my back. They won't give up easily. They just won't.

Also, to be honest, I have some unfinished business to take care of here in BH City. Grandfather, won't you please give me some time to settle things down?"

Staring at the face of his favorite grandson, Nicholas's smile grew tender. He asked, "Terence, tell me. Is it because of your resentment towards your father? Or has your heart been stolen by some woman in this city?"

Terence just grinned, not humoring him with a response.

"Terry, bring that child home if you really think that she is the one! Don't worry. As long as you've made up your mind, I will be there for you no matter who she is. Nothing will stand in your way under my surveillance!"

Nicholas laughed out loud as he didn't get a reply from his beloved grandson. His silence had sold him out.

Meanwhile, as they were chit-chatting merrily, a loud noise emanating from outside of the window caught both of their attention.

Immediately, they turned their heads toward the window all at once...
