Celia's voice sounded a little hoarse, "I have a fever, so I'm still at home."

"Then I will go to see you at noon."

"No, thanks, he's with me." Celia coughed a few more times and hung up the phone. Just then, Marcus came over with a bowl of millet porridge. She scooped up a spoonful, gently blew it cold, and then sent it to her mouth. "Good girl, eat some porridge, and then take medicine. Have a good sleep."

At this time, Marcus's cell phone suddenly rang. He looked at the number with an unusual expression.

It was from Eden.

Celia lowered her eyelashes to hide the disappointment in her eyes. She raised his head again and smiled as if nothing had happened. "Marcus, give me the bowl. I can eat it myself. You can answer the phone."

Marcus went to the balcony with his mobile phone. Eden's flattering voice sounded so annoying to him. He asked, "What's the matter?"

"Aunt and I were shopping in the mall. We wanted to buy you a cashmere shirt, but we didn't know your size at once. Would you like to try it on?"

"No, thanks."

He hung up the phone in an extremely cold manner. When he was about to go back to his room, his phone rang again. This time, it was his mother who asked him to go there as soon as possible on the phone, and Marcus could not refuse.

Celia had already guessed it, so she was relieved a lot. She touched her forehead and said, "I'm fine. If you have anything to do, just go. I can have a good sleep."

"Then call me if you need anything."

"Okay."

Wrapped in a quilt, Celia stood on the balcony and looked down. Seeing his figure fading away, his eyes gradually became moist.

She sobbed and couldn't help sending a message to Rachel.

When Rachel saw the message, it was almost time to get off work. "Rachel, it seems that I'm more and more reluctant to leave him." The few numbers were filled with their helplessness and sadness.

Rachel wasn't good at comforting others. Now she didn't know what to reply. Besides, it had been so long, so she exited the message interface.

Jack's efficiency was instantly improved several times under the threat of Rachel.

When she came back from work, she saw him sitting on the sofa, with his right leg crossed on his left leg. He picked up the teacup and drank the tea slowly, with a faint smile on the corner of his mouth.

As she took off her coat and hung it on the hanger, she asked, "Didn't you tell me at noon that you had something to deal with in the company? Would you come back late?"

Jack put down his teacup and said, "I have something more important to tell you."

Tilting her head, Rachel picked up the tea cup that Jack hadn't finished yet, drank it up, moistened her throat and asked, "What's the matter?"

She didn't expect Jack to be so efficient!

Jack took out a blurry photo from a Kraft paper bag, raised

d cleaned up the mess there.

He had always been reading documents and signing with his hands, but now he was with her, helping her friend clean up the mess.

She withdrew her eyes and asked, "What happened to the blood on the wall?"

"Yes, it's Bertha's."

Speaking of this, Celia could no longer suppress the fear in her heart. She shook her shoulders and sobbed, "She just came over and insisted on taking me to a blind date, but I refused, so I pushed her. As a result... She..."

Rachel comforted her, "Don't think too much. Have a good rest first."

There was not much blood on the wall, so it should not be a big deal. However, the relationship between the two of them would probably get worse.

Seeing that Celia was lying on the bed and sleeping, Rachel came out of the bedroom quietly. Jack had already packed up and waved at her on the sofa.

Pursing her lips, Rachel raised her eyebrows and pointed at the place on the wall that couldn't be seen clearly. "Celia said that the blood was from her stepmother's forehead. I don't know how she is now. Do we need to have a look?"

Jack frowned, "Well, I'll ask Austin to know about it."

Holding his arm, Rachel leaned on his shoulder and said, "Thank you, Jack."

A smile flashed through Jack's eyes. He turned to look at her gloomy face and said, "No need to thank me. After all, you are my woman."

"Will you regret to be with me?" Rachel paused and counted the past with her fingers.

Jack sat up straight, stared at her and asked seriously, "Can I regret now?"

Rachel was stunned for a while and then realized what he meant. She laughed and pinched his thigh, "You wish!"

Marcus came over with a thermos bottle in his hand. When he just came over, he saw Jack open the door and come out. He raised his eyebrows and asked, "Why are you here?"

Jack smiled, "Don't get me wrong. I came here with Rachel."
