“It’s not hard to make a call, but I was afraid you would be too busy to answer. After all
“You didn’t even have time to say goodbye when he left.”
Liam had no response
After a while, he said, “Sydney got injured”
Celeste paused for a moment and said lightly.
Sydney was injured, and he was worried, so he rushed her to the hospital without telling Celeste
“Oh, Celeste said quietly. “Is she alright?”
Her tone was sharp, making Liam frown
“Celeste, do you have to be so sarcastic? Liam asked
“I’m just asking casually. Why are you so nervous? It’s not like if I say she’s fine, shell be fine.” Celeste finished speaking and walked past Liam
Liam watched her retreating figure for a few seconds before catching up with her.
Celeste sat cross-legged on the sofa, eating an apple and browsing her iPad
Her phone was linked to her tablet, so she could check her messages on it now that her phone was broken.
Hearing Liam’s footsteps, she ignored him and continued checking her emails.
Liam reached out and touched the gown on the sofa, suddenly asking. “Who gave you this dress?”
“The hotel manager Celeste said.
Liam obviously didn’t believe her “Why would the hotel manager give you a dress?”
Celeste couldn’t be bothered to answer that question.
If he really cared about her, he could check with the hotel to find out what happened to her when she was locked in the bathroom. But Liam had no intention of doing that. The person who had locked her in the bathroom was his sister, and considering Liams protectiveness towards Kaylee, it was normal for him to pretend not to know
“You should ask the hotel manager about this questions. Maybe he thought I was pretty and wanted to give me a dress?” Celeste said. Just then, Liam’s phone rang. He didn’t continue questioning Celeste and answered the call.
It was obvious that the call was from Sydney
Liam didn’t even care about Celeste’s presence and spoke to Sydney in a gentle tone.
Celeste was irritated and deliberately made a loud noise when she took out a drawer.
Liam glanced at her but continued speaking softly, “I’m glad you’re okay”
Damn Liam, acting like she was invisible!
She was about to lose her temper when Liam handed her the phone, “Grandma wants to talk to you.”
Celeste’s anger vanished instantly. She took the phone and whispered, ‘Grandma.
Liam was stunned
“Letti, why haven’t you been visiting me lately? Sugar has been missing you. She hasn’t even been eating her apples” Grandma said Sugar was a horse owned by the old lady. She was nearly six feet tall, with shiny dark hair and strong muscles. The only flaw was that she was blind in her left eye. Otherwise, she would have been a champion horse
The old lady had traveled a lot when she was young and had a particular fondness for spirited horses
-A few years ago, when the old lady went overseas to watch horse racing, she bumped into Sugar by chance. At that time, this little guy was only half a year old. Due to the mistake of the previous caretaker, its left eye was injured, making it unable to participate in races, so it was sold to a farm
However, Sugar had a fiery temper and didn’t like to be disciplined. The farm owner lacked experience in training horses, so they would whip it at the drop of a hat.
