On the way home, Steven glanced at Carla who was sitting right next to him. With a bit of hesitation, he said, "Carla, it's already late. How about we look for a place to eat and just go back after having dinner?"

Carla didn't respond right away and simply kept staring at the photos in her hand. They had been printed by Steven himself.

"No, I don't want to eat outside. My daughter is waiting for me. How about another day?"

At that moment, she was thinking that she had been playing outside with Steven all day long. Now, it was time for her to go back and spend time with her daughter.

Then, Steven came up with an idea and said, "What do you say we go pick Sally up and have dinner together?"

Hearing Steven's suggestion, Carla raised her head and looked at him. When she noticed the nervous expression on his face, Carla couldn't help but chuckle. "Steven, what are you doing?

You are still so young. Why don't you just go and have dinner with a young girl? Why do you want to have dinner with a divorced woman who still has to look after her child? Aren't you worried of what people might say about you?"

She was thinking that if Grace ever saw this, that woman would probably think that she was robbing the cradle.

"Carla..."

"I think it would be better if you call me Sister Carla. After all, I'm six years older than you. Thank you for taking me to see such beautiful maple leaves today. I really appreciate it. I'll treat you to dinner some other day!"

Carla told him, wearing a radiant smile on her face. Then, he turned to Victor who was driving the car. "Victor, please pull over at the next intersection."

Feeling a bit uncertain, Steven looked at her.

After a while, the car had reached the next intersection.

Grabbing her things, Carla was ready to get out. However, just as she was about to step out of the car, a hand suddenly pulled her back.

Because of that, she turned to look at Steven.

"What's the matter? Why are you stopping me?"

As he held her wrist, Steven looked at her with his deep eyes and said, "Carla, please give me a chance, will you?"

"…"

At such a loss for words, Carla quietly shifted her gaze and sighed. "Steven..."

The moment she said that, Steven suddenly grabbed her wrist and pulled her closer. Wrapping his arms around her and holding her tight, he told her, "Now that you and Mr. An are divorced, you're free to make any decision. Can't you at least give me a chance?"

Carla could smell a weird scent on him, it was something faint like the sunshine, simple and clear. Although she wanted to push him away, she couldn't do it because of how tightly he was holding her.

"Steven

Miss Sally,"

Rainer went ahead and explained.

Truth be told, Rainer had been planning to rent a room with Nathan to stay here for a while. But when Terence found out that Carla was also living here, he directly instructed Rainer to buy this entire floor.

Looking at Terence who was sitting on the sofa with his daughter in his arms, Carla walked over toward them.

"What are you doing here? Why did you buy all of the rooms? Are you running out of things to spend your money on?"

If she was being honest, Carla thought that she and her daughter couldn't possibly live in all of those rooms. And this way, not only would she have to pay for a higher property management fee, but she would also have to handle the cleaning of all of these rooms.

"Yes, you're right. I don't lack money whatsoever." Terence shifted his gaze from the cartoon they were watching to Carla and said, "Besides, all of this is for my daughter. I want to give her everything she needs to make her feel comfortable and happy."

Meanwhile, Rainer and Nathan were standing on the sidelines. Seeing that Terence and Carla were having an argument, they stood there without saying a word and wiped away the sweat on their foreheads.

"Miss Sally? Don't you feel hungry? Come on! Let's go and eat something delicious!"

Rainer immediately thought of taking Sally someplace else so that she wouldn't be able to hear her parents' argument. At that point, he knew that Terence was probably pissed off because he was worried that the child might end up getting scared.

"Oh, okay then," Sally answered and went outside with Rainer, leaving only two people in the room, one standing, one sitting.

And the cartoon titled "Peppa Pig" was still playing on TV, which happened to be Sally's favorite.
