“Okay, my little pumpkin.” Vivian held him in her arms, regretting being angry at him. It’s my fault for not giving him a complete family, so I don’t have the right to be mad at him.
Vivian felt a lump in her throat, but she did not want to cry in front of her son, so she held back the tears and said with a smile, “I’ll go make you dinner now, so you’ll play by yourself here, okay?”
At that, Vivian felt better as she stroked his head and turned for the kitchen.
Seeing her leave, Larry blinked, and a smug smile appeared on his face. Then, he took the bag that Vivian had put on the table and fished out her phone.
Launching the web browser, he did a search by entering “Finnick Norton” into the search bar. Mommy, do you really think I don’t know who my daddy is? Since you don’t want to tell me, I have no choice but to check it myself.
Vivian and Benedict were busy the next day, so Larry was taken care of by the nanny, Ms. Booker.
Upon seeing that Vivian and Benedict had left the house, Larry began to pester Ms. Booker to take him out to play. As Larry insisted, Ms. Booker had no choice but to take him to the fried chicken restaurant that he wanted to go to.
Larry had already found out that he could go to where Finnick was by walking two blocks from the restaurant and taking a left turn. I wonder if I can see him today?
Thinking of that, Larry was secretly excited.
After reaching the restaurant, he quickly ran out of the restaurant while Ms. Booker was ordering food at the counter. Then, he ran to his destination.
Standing before a building, he reckoned that he had reached as the building and the words on its signboard—which read “Finnor Group”—looked the same as what he saw in the picture.
Taking a deep breath, he walked into the building while feeling a little nervous deep down.
Meanwhile, Finnick was going through the documents at his desk when a knock came at the door.
“Come in.” His voice was void of emotions, but it still made the new secretary, who had just knocked on the door, blush.
Trying to remain calm, the secretary assumed a professional attitude as she reported, “Mr. Norton, someone from Norton Corporation called and wanted you to attend a board meeting now.”
“Okay. Tell Noah to get the car ready.”
“Yes, Mr. Norton.”
After leaving the office, the secretary patted herself on her flushed cheeks. Even though I’ve been here for two weeks, I still can’t resist the charm of the president. He’s so perfect! What if I… No, no, no!
The secretary immediately dismissed her thoughts. She heard that the previous two secretaries were fired by the president’s girlfriend because they thought about things they shouldn’t. Therefore, she thought that she should focus on keeping her job instead of thinking too much.
With that thought in mind, she hurriedly informed Noah to get ready.
As soon as Finnick walked downstairs to the company entrance, he was stopped by someone.
“Are you Finnick Norton?” Looking at the cute child with an adorable voice blocking his path, Finnick somehow felt his heart melt.
“Yes, I am.” Finnick squatted down to be at eye level with the boy. “What’s the matter? Can I help you?”
For some reason, he felt an inexplicable sense of closeness to the little boy in front of him. He found the latter familiar, as though he had met him somewhere.
Hearing his question, Larry racked his brain for an answer. Got it!
“I’m lost, and now I can’t find my mommy. I saw you on TV, so I know that your name is Finnick Norton. Can you help me find my mommy?” Larry deliberately made himself sound pitiful. In order to make it more believable, he even tried hard to whip up some tears.
Seeing the boy’s pitiful and tearful look, Finnick found himself feeling distressed.
