Carla waited anxiously for another two days.

During those days, she rarely ate or even slept. She kept on dialing Terence's phone number almost every hour but still couldn't get him on the phone.

Carla had begged Theo to help her make some inquiries among his friends. But still, to no avail, there wasn't any word from him. After all, he was far from NF. It would take time for him to receive information.

Carla couldn't stand it anymore. She couldn't just sit there waiting for news without doing anything. She thought and thought for some time, and then decided to ask Terence's grandfather for help. So, she asked the driver to take her to the An's Manor.

She didn't want to disturb Nicholas, but at that moment she thought that she had no other choice.

As the hours passed, she was becoming more and more afraid that Terence might be in great danger.

Soon enough, she arrived at the North Yard.

As soon as she got out of the car, Race came over. "Miss Carla, Mr. Nicholas is resting. Is it an emergency? If it's not that urgent, may I suggest waiting for him in the living room for a while?"

Shaking her head, Carla replied, "Sorry Race, but this is very important. I'm afraid the matter couldn't wait any longer."

It was true, she couldn't wait a second longer or she might actually go crazy.

Seeing how serious Carla was, Race didn't ask any more questions. He gestured Carla to follow him and they headed directly for Nicholas's bedroom.

"Mr. Nicholas, Miss Carla's here to see you," Race said softly as he bowed.

Carla was just behind him, following solemnly. The moment she reached the door, tears pooled in her eyes and she was choked up for a moment.

Immediately noticing Carla's distress, Nicholas asked worriedly, "What's wrong, Carla my dear? Come here and tell me what happened. Was anyone rude to you? Did anyone do you wrong?" When Carla still struggled to respond, he added, "Don't worry. Since Terence isn't here, I'll protect you. I'll never let anyone harm you!"

Seeing Carla crying made him feel really bad and he began to worry about her.

Carla shook her head. She slowly made her way to his bed and kneeled on the floor beside it. She then held his hand and stated, "Grandpa, I haven't been able to reach Terence for three days. I'm really worried about him. I had no other choice but to come here and ask for your help."

Nicholas was unable to speak for a while, trying to process what Carla had just said. "Carla, wh-what, what are you saying? What do you mean you couldn't reach Terence for three days?"

Nicholas thought for a moment before he shouted, "Race! Come in here right now!"

Race immediately took the stairs to Nicholas's room. The moment he heard the man yell, he knew what it was about. In his defense, he didn't inform Nicholas of any bad news since the man was in poor health. He thought that it might not be good for him to stress over a lot of things.

When Race came into the room, he first looked at Carla and then turned to Nicholas. Not wanting to anger the man any further, he quickly stated, "Mr. Nicholas, it's true that Mr. Terence is missing."

Another reason why he didn't want to tell Mr. Nichol

ds that you're gone, he will blame us,"

Sophie begged as she clung to Carla's arm.

'These days, Miss Carla and Sean's arrival had given the villa some life. Mr. Terence left several days ago. If Miss Carla also leaves, this villa will become dreary again.

And for certain, Mr. Sean will feel lonely while both Miss Carla and Mr. Terence are away, ' Sophie thought to herself.

"Sophie, I must do something for Terence. I can't just stand by and watch while he's in so much danger. I can't just wait here anymore," Carla said with determination.

For the past several days, Sophie could tell that there was something bothering Miss Carla. She had been a little out of her mind. Sophie had speculations that it had something to do with Mr. Terence and Carla just confirmed her intuitions. Mr. Terence must be in a really dangerous situation.

"But Miss Carla, you'd be in great danger as well. What's worse, you don't have anyone to help you. How can you save Mr. Terence by yourself? Miss Carla, please just listen to me.

Just stay here and wait for him to come back. Please don't do anything that could put you in a dangerous situation,"

Sophie tried her best to persuade Carla. She was afraid that Carla might get herself in danger. On the other hand, she was also afraid that when Mr. Terence came back and couldn't find Miss Carla, he would be mad at them for letting her leave.

Carla shook her head, looking extremely as determined as when she walked in. Her eyes were as beautiful as the pearls. At that moment, she had them fixed on Sophie and she firmly said, "Sophie, I have already decided.

You don't have to worry. I won't go alone. Grandpa will arrange some bodyguards to protect me."

Then, Carla removed her arm from Sophie's hand and walked towards the door carrying her bag.

Sophie was unable to move from where she stood. After a while, she started crying as she began to worry about Miss Carla and Mr. Terence's safety.

With her hands clasped in front of her, Sophie looked at the sky and begged the blessing of the gods.

She prayed for Miss Carla and Mr. Terence's safe return.
