Pauline was sweating under the quilt, and her damp hair was stuck to her face. Edmund gently pushed away the matted mess of hair on her forehead and sighed. Even if the woman in front of him was like a cup of poison, he would drink it every day without hesitation.

He carefully leaned in and planted a tender kiss on her forehead. Just then, the phone on the coffee table began to vibrate.

He immediately turned to her to see if the sound had stirred her from sleep, but to his relief, she still had her eyes closed. In fact, she gradually relaxed her eyebrows and stopped crying. The tracks of tears on her face were already dry.

Finally feeling a bit relaxed, Edmund walked to the coffee table and picked up his phone. When he saw what was on the screen, he pursed his lips in anger.

It seemed that he had been too kind and lenient recently. People were starting to get the guts to go against him.

But it was time to let them know who had the final say in NZ City.

Edmund took one last look at Pauline's sleeping face before he turned around and left.

After that, Pauline somehow had a good sleep. When she opened her eyes, it was already eight o'clock in the morning the next day. She slowly turned her head and found that the other side of the bed was empty and untouched. It seemed that Edmund had not slept there at all last night.

Did that mean that he hadn't forgiven her even though she had given him a sincere apology? But he had treated her so tenderly last night. She just couldn't understand what was going on in his head.

The thoughts that one had as soon as they woke up could determine how they felt for the rest of the day. Since Pauline's first thought after waking up was that Edmund still hadn't forgiven her, she felt depressed. She forced herself to get up and finish her morning routine, but as she washed her face and brushed her teeth, her eyes were listless and empty. Although she had had a good rest and physically felt refreshed, she still couldn't cheer up.

After hesitating for a while in the room, she finally went downstairs to gauge the situation.

"Good morning, Mrs. Lu," Lettie greeted as soon as she saw Pauline. She had a bunch of beautiful dew-covered flowers in her arms that she was taking to replace the old flowers in the vases around the house.

Pauline was too preoccupied with her thoughts to greet Lettie. But when the latter walked past her, Pauline reached out and grabbed her arm without thinking.

"Mrs. Lu, what can I do for you?" Lettie asked in a slightly shaky voice. The surprise in her eyes disappeared in an instant, replaced by a polite smile on her face.

With the realization of what she had just done, a light flashed in Pauline's eyes, and she abruptly withdrew her hand, pretending as if nothing had happened. "

natural smile appeared at the corners of his mouth. "That's why I'm so late for Pauline's birthday party."

Then, he turned to Pauline with an apologetic look on his face. "I'm sorry, Pauline. I didn't mean to come so late. Can you forgive me?"

At that age, Pauline was just glad that her father had shown up in the end. She didn't hold any anger in her heart. She nodded readily at him and said, "Okay."

Anthony put his hand on the shoulder of the little girl next to him and gave her a light push forward. "Pauline, didn't you always want a younger brother? I couldn't give you a younger brother, but you have an elder sister now. Are you happy?"

"Yay, I'm happy! We're a family," Pauline said excitedly with her childish innocence. She stretched out her hand to Tiffany, but the latter turned away and ignored her.

"She is a little shy," Anthony told Pauline calmly, trying to mediate the dispute. Then, he sat at the table with Tiffany and turned to a waiter. "Serve the dishes."

The truth was, Pauline was a little unhappy that her father cared more about some other girl, and on her birthday, no less.

So, she asked her mother to take her to the bathroom and secretly complained about the new girl. However, her mother told her that the little girl had just lost her parents, and her father had brought her here to cheer her up. Therefore, Pauline decided to be more generous and accepting.

In retrospect, her dad had always only cared about Tiffany to make it up to her. He didn't even think of Pauline as his daughter.

Once the dishes had been set on the table, they all sang the happy birthday song together. The flames of the candles on the cake cast a warm and beautiful glow over everyone around the table. While blowing out the candles, Pauline made a wish that her parents would be able to spend more time with her. Unfortunately...
