Chapter 260: Serena, long time no see
Karen didn’t know why Serena suddenly turned pale, with anger, fear, and even a trace of confusion at this moment.
Serena is standing in the hotel lobby, her mind buzzing, how much does Penn know?
If he can find Larry and get close to Larry, then he should have found out everything about her and the child, right?
Serena couldn’t help but tremble. In recent years, she had done too many divorce cases and custody cases. Once the interests were involved, and the custody of the child was involved, there were countless cases where the two sides turned against each other.
And since Penn already knew about the existence of the children, but he never came to find her, what was he planning? He is such a scheming person, and he has been divorced for several years, Serena has no idea what he will do.
If he doesn’t want the children, it’s fine. If he wants to the custody of the children from her, what are her odds of winning?
At this time, she was standing in the hotel lobby, thinking about all the worst–case scenarios in her mind.
“Serena, are you okay?” Karen was perturbed. She had never seen Serena so distracted.
Serena shook her head, telling herself not to scare herself first, everything was her own imagination, things were not that bad, it was her own imagination.
“It’s okay, let’s go, come find Larry another day.”
The two were about to walk out when Serena froze in place when they walked through the revolving door of the hotel lobby. It turned out to be Penn and Larry who came in. The four almost met head–on, and Serena couldn’t hide if she wanted to, and stared at the two who came in.
“Serena…” Larry was very happy to see her and took a step in front of her.
Penn’s heart suddenly shook, and he looked in Larry’s direction and saw Serena standing there. The world seemed to have stopped, and the people coming and going around became a background. He couldn’t hear what Larry was saying or gesturing, only Serena in front of him.
In the past few years, he didn’t even dare to fantasize about the scene of the two meeting, and even fantasies were considered extravagant, but now she suddenly appeared in front of him, so close. So close that he could see himself in the reflection of her eyes, so close that his heart almost stopped, he just wanted to hug her and tell her that he missed her so much.
His nails dug into the flesh of his palm, and the pain made him a little more awake, restrained himself, and made himself look the same as usual.
Serena never thought she would see Penn in such a scene. In addition to losing a little weight, the man did not change at all. He was still wearing a well–tailored white shirt and suit pants.
She forced herself to calm down and tugged at Larry’s arm, as if she was very domineering and pulled him to her side to protect her. In fact, she supported herself with Larry’s strength.
Larry and Karen didn’t know why, and looked back and forth curiously. Both of them seemed calm and didn’t speak, but the undercurrent in the atmosphere made it impossible to ignore.
It was Penn who said hello first
“Serena, long time no see.” His voice was tight and hoarse, it was really a long time, as if a lifetime had passed.
Serena ignored him and dragged Larry straight out, all her strength spent on pulling Larry’s hands. Her instinct was to stay away from Penn, not only her, but also the people around her, such as Larry, should stay away.
Looking at Penn’s expression just now, he may not know the existence of the two children.
“Serena, where are you dragging me to?” Larry, a high school boy, was taller than Serena, and actually stronger than her. With a little force, Serena couldn’t pull him.
“Come with me!” she yelled at Larry, her voice rising.
Lawyer Ayesa, Mrs. Aresa, and Larry had watched her walk all the way, and knew more about the children than anyone else. She was afraid that Larry would say something he shouldn’t. Fortunately, it was still too late.
Larry is a high school student after all, and his temper is not small. His parents have never yelled at him like this. Now he is stubborn and says loudly
“I’m not leaving, I’m studying well with Mr. Humphery here, and I’m not going anywhere.”
Karen was embarrassed, Serena was so wrong today.
“Are you going?” Serena couldn’t help but yell at Larry.
Larry is a high school student after all, and his parents have always respected him. How could he be yelled at in public like this?
“Why do you care about me, I won’t leave.”
Serena was stunned, she was really confused, and she couldn’t think properly because of Penn’s sudden appearance.
Yeah, what right does she have to control Larry, what right does she have to control Larry? Just because she was taken care of by their family of three for three years? Just because they are her benefactors? So she pushes an inch and thinks she has the right to boss Larry?
Larry was also angry and said something impulsively. Seeing Serena’s expression dim at this moment, he was also very sad and self–respecting, and refused to speak to ease the atmosphere.
That’s when Penn spoke first
“You go back with Serena first.”
His words gave everyone a step down at the right time, and his tone was calm.
Serena was the first to walk ahead, and without even glancing at Penn, Larry and Karen hurriedly followed.
Karen looked back from time to time and saw that Mr. Humphery had been standing there like a wooden man, looking in their direction.
Along the way, Serena’s heart hangs because Penn acts so calm, so calm that it seems like they just met yesterday.
Two sentences in total.
Serena, long time no see!
You go back with Serena first.
The calmer he was, the more scared she was, and when she got back to her hotel, she apologized to Larry first
“I was too impatient just now, sorry.”
Larry quickly waved his hand and said it was okay.
He was also very irritable just now. It was very embarrassing to be yelled at by Serena in front of his idol.
Serena looks at him compared to his peers, he is already very sensible, she is angry at him, now think of some guilt, Lawyer Ayesa, Mrs. Aresa are reluctant to scold the child, why let you roar for no reason, even trying to stop him to Future Better Technology Company internship.
Calm down a little now, she asked
“Why did Mr. Humphery from Future Better Technology Company take you personally?”
Larry scratched his forehead and said rather sheepishly
“Serena, I’m actually bragging. Mr. Humphery didn’t lead me alone. The champion, second runner–up and third runner–up of our competition are all led by Mr. Humphery. The senior of the technology department said. that Mr. Humphery is now in charge of the scientific research department, and many new bees are personally selected by him.”
Is it really like this? So it’s really just a coincidence?
“Has Mr. Humphery asked you about me?”
“Mr. Humphery? Why is he asking about you?” Larry was a little confused. In his opinion, the two of them were inseparable.
Serena didn’t answer and continued to ask, “What do you do with him. every day?”
“In fact, Mr. Humphery doesn’t have much time to care about us. He just asked us about the direction we want to develop in the future, and then asked someone from the relevant scientific research department to take me. If I have any questions that I don’t understand, I can ask him directly. Mr. Humphery is very good, as long as I go to him, no matter how busy I
am, I will find time to answer my questions.”
Serena was silent for a while and then said seriously
“Larry, whether you continue to intern at Future Better Technology Company or not, there is something you must keep a secret for me.”
“What’s the matter, Serena?” Larry immediately changed his serious face.
“You can’t tell anyone in NY about my two little friends at home. It’s my business, don’t tell anyone who asks, you know?“
