Chapter 306: Back to NY
Outside the bedroom of older Mr. Humphery, there is actually a meeting room where close subordinates come to talk about business. On the walls of the two sides of the living room, there are still several of his favorite calligraphy and paintings, which are sent by some famous people and are of great value. There is a picture of him on the central table, and fresh fruit is placed in front of it. It seems that someone comes in and changes it every day.
“Candy was very dutiful. After older Mr. Humphery died, she had the room cleaned and offered incense on time every day.“The nanny was explaining.
“Your grandfather is alive or not, but his spirit will not part, as long as he is here, our family will not part. “Ann said and handed him a incense stick for him to plug in, it was an electronic incense, there would be no fireworks.
Penn took the incense and looked at Ann and the nanny. He did not say anything, but his eyes signaled them to go out. He wanted to be alone with older Mr. Humphery for a while.
“Penn, you haven’t eaten yet. I’ll cook for you.“‘ said the
“I ate on the plane.‘
Ann and the nurse lifted their feet and walked out. When I reached the door, I breathed a sigh of relief. Even his own son, but when facing him, he was still a little nervous, one is
to understand the purpose of his sudden return, and the other is that the aura is really strong, and the appearance of not talking is more intimidating than older Mr. Humphery.
She knew he had eaten it on the plane, but Ann sent the babysitter into the kitchen to make him some snacks, and she went to help.
The nanny was still happy: “I think Penn took the initiative to come back this time, should really let go of the past.”
Ann does not have the optimism of the nanny, and she has dealt with people for a lifetime, but she cannot touch the temper of her children.But Ken’s back, and that’s always a good thing.
But half an hour later, Benedict Humphery also knew that Penn was back. He was too busy to go home immediately, and he called Ann to tell her
“Don’t tell him anything useful. Let him be quiet for a few days.”
Before she retired, Benedict Humphery had no respect for her, and now that she is retired, he does not put her in his eyes. As long as he speaks, it is a reprimand, like training subordinates.
“You too, don’t come home with a dirty face.”
Benedict Humphery hung up the phone frowning, after Mr. Evans from NY had told him that Penn had come to see him about a female lawyer. Benedict Humphery doesn’t have to think about who this female lawyer is, and there’s no one other than Serena, and now he’s suddenly going home for
Benedict Humphery was very angry and never told Ann about the incident. In his opinion, Ann was more successful than unsuccessful. The last incident humiliated the
Humphery Family, the son flew away and refused to come back even for the funeral of older Mr. Humphery.Became the joke of the circle. This time he kept his cool, saw what Penn wanted to do, and waited.
Ann does not know these twists and turns of Benedict Humphery’s heart, she is now really happy that her son will come home, in the end is a blood relationship, can not be separated.Her son took the initiative to go home to the steps, and of course she followed them, although the surface was still a stiff face to shape the image of stern mother.
Penn lit incense for older Mr. Humphery and stood quietly looking at older Mr. Humphery’s picture. This picture is probably taken by older Mr. Humphery when he was 70 years old and he helped to take it, while there were many guests outside and the two of them were playing chess and hiding in peace.
older Mr. Humphery said, “What’s your birthday? It’s just that your parents like to hang out with their friends and all this stupid stuff and not leave anyone alone.
older Mr. Humphery has kept a low profile all his life, but Benedict Humphery and Ann need to consolidate their positions through older Mr. Humphery’s status, so every birthday, they have to hold a grand birthday party for him. older Mr. Humphery, though vexed, could only let them fool around, appearing only at the last moment.
This is one of the reasons Penn did not go to the funeral, older Mr. Humphery had stressed many times, in the future, if there is a day, everything is simple, no extravagance, but obviously it does not work, the parents are still their own. way. So Penn has never had much hope for his parents, but he has to come now, and if he doesn’t solve his parents‘ problem, he will never have any hope of getting Serena back.
“Grandpa, I hope you can support me this time.“He said. these words to older Mr. Humphery in his heart, and then bowed deeply and left the room.
In the evening, at dinner, Benedict Humphery arrived late and took a look at Penn. Father and son were so unfamiliar that they had nothing to say, except that they nodded to each other as if they were strangers.
Maybe Ann can lighten the mood a little.
“Penn, dinner will be served in a minute. Would you like to have secretary Peck over for dinner?“Ann was mildly impressed by secretary Peck.
When Penn was abroad for three years, it was secretary Peck who briefed her on his situation and felt obliged to treat him. to a meal.
Penn picked up his cell phone and went outside to the yard to call Joa.
Joa lives not far away, in a five–star hotel nearby, and she hasn’t had dinner for years in order to keep in shape, but Ann invited her, and of course she gladly came.When passing by the fruit supermarket, I also carefully selected several high–quality fruits and placed them into exquisite
When Joa arrives, and has dinner with the legendary Benedict Humphery Ann, even though she has lived abroad for many years and has a free heart and is not afraid of power, or she is very skillful in interpersonal skills, she sits. at the table and has nothing to say.
It’s just too depressing, the whole family just eats in silence and doesn’t talk to each other.
She could feel that Ann and his wife had tried to be polite to her and treated her with the highest courtesy, but the natural majesty of the couple’s whole body was immersed.It is difficult to ignore the aura cultivated by years of sexual officialdom.
Let alone chatting like other ordinary families during the meal, there was not even the sound of a spoon touching the bowl, and there was not a sound in the mouth when eating.
It’s not easy for Penn to grow up normal in this family environment.
When a meal is finally finished, Joa is relieved and wants to return to the hotel immediately.
But Ann invited him to tea in the living room, and Benedict Humphery went back to his office in the study.
Penn is in the living room with Joa.
Ann took the initiative and asked, “Do you need my help with your college business?”
Even if she retired, she still had connections in the education system all her life.
This Joa naturally can not answer, her family Mr. Humphery used to separate public and private, never use the family relationship, now the Future Better Technology Company is already a giant in the industry, let alone use.
I thought Penn would refuse, but I heard him speak softly
“We are going to Arcadia University tomorrow, if you have time, could you accompany us there?”
Joa knew what he meant and smiled at Ann.
