I smiled at Sean. “No.”
At this time, Linda and Daisy left quietly.
Before going out, Linda said, “President Jessop, Becky worked overtime and our design was finished ahead of time, so she can take the next ten days off. If it’s not enough, she can take 20 or 30 days off…
Daisy grabbed Linda and stopped her from planning to give me a permanent holiday.
In the ward, only Sean and I were left.
Sean sat on the bed and took my hand and said discontentedly, “You don’t let me disturb you, and I didn’t, but only if you can’t get sick.”
“I’m sorry. I just…”
“You just want to immerse yourself in work and avoid the Internet?”
Sean asked me.
I nodded. I thought about it and asked, “what’s up on the Internet now? Is it better?”
“Well, you’d better use less Internet these days. Read more books.” Sean rubbed my hair. “Do you want to go to the island? Linda said you have a holiday these days. I’ll take you to the island. You can bring your friends and Lester.”
I remembered that Daisy had told me before that she wanted to go.
“Yes, but Cindy and I were married there before. If you mind, I can book another island in the maldives…”
“No, I don’t mind. It’s fine.”
And it would cost a lot of money to book another island.
Sean’s island was great.
Sean nodded. “Well, when you’re better, we’ll go.”
I looked at my phone and reached for it.
But Sean reached out and stopped me. He put my cell phone in his pocket and said, “you need a good rest. I’ll buy you some books later. Don’t look at your cell phone these days.”
“Aren’t you on holiday? You don’t need a cell phone. I’ll take your call. If Lester contacts you, I’ll tell him.”
Sean’s tone was very determined. He didn’t seem to want me to touch that cell phone at all.
I understood that things on the Internet had not stopped.
I wanted to say something, but Sean went to the door and opened it and asked, “do you have any plans for your holiday?”
I guessed Daisy and Linda were outside.
But after he asked, it was quiet outside and no one answered.
A few seconds later, I heard Linda ask, “President Jessop, what do you mean?”
“When Becky gets well, I’m going to take her to my private island. If you are free…”
Before Sean finished, Daisy said excitedly.
At this time, they went into the ward. Linda gave me a look. I advised her, “go ahead, you can take your family. I will take Lester with me.”
Linda just said, “can I bring my husband and daughter?”
Sean nodded naturally. “Of course. Each of you has your own room. If there are a lot of people, I can arrange a suite.”
“Thank you, President Jessop.”
I was in hospital for three days before I was discharged.
After I left the hospital, Sean arranged for us to go to his private island together.
This time was different from last time. There were a lot of people going this time.
In addition to myself, there were Linda’s family, Chloe, Daisy, and Lester.
I wanted to take Murray, but Margaret couldn’t, so he gave up.
We went to the Carson City together to pick up Lester before we landed.
When we landed, I found a familiar figure on the island.
The man was dressed in fancy island clothes. He was wearing sunglasses and had a frangipani on his ear and a coconut in his hand.
When he saw Daisy, he was excited and rushed at her.
“Daisy! I’ve been waiting for you!”
Daisy saw Jack and her smile disappeared.
She turned to Sean and clasped her hands and asked him, “President Jessop, for the sake of June and I being friends for decades, could you move my room to the farthest from his room?”
“It’s the furthest.” Jack looked smug and put his hands on his waist. “I knew you’d say that, so I did so.”
Daisy heard Jack and was suspicious.
I stood by and smiled wryly and explained, “the island is small. No matter how far it is, it will take five minutes by bike and maybe fifteen minutes on foot.”
Daisy was helpless. “oh, come on!”
The waiters on the island showed everyone to their rooms.
Sean and I lived in the only double-decker apartment on the island.
Lester went to the door and saw the pool and jumped in to play.
When Sean and I came in, he immediately hugged me and said, “this room was torn down, rebuilt and redesigned. It was specially designed to have two levels. We can see a beautiful sunset.”
I knew what he meant.
He was afraid that I might misunderstand that this house was the one he had lived with Cindy before.
To be honest, if it was, then I did mind a little bit.
After he said that, I deliberately broke away from him and sat down on the sofa. I looked out the window and pretended to be angry and said, “do you think I’m narrow-minded?”
“what do you think?” He came close again and hugged me from behind. He kissed me on the shoulder and said vaguely, “what if you mind?”
I turned my head and looked at him and pressed him directly onto the sofa.
I looked down at him and my hair fell down and a strand of hair fell on his face.
I took it away for him and said seriously, “I mind.”
With that, Sean put his arm around my neck and pressed me under him. His deep eyes were fixed on mine.
He smiled and said, “I know you mind, because I know you love me.”
Then he leaned over and kissed my lips. The next second, I felt like Sean’s breath was slowly bringing me back the feeling that I knew best and that I had yearned for the most in years.
I put my arms around his neck and tried to respond to him.
“Dad, mom, I want to change my clothes.”
Lester’s voice came from the door.
I flushed and quickly pushed Sean away.
As I looked toward the door, Lester put his hands over his eyes. He turned and said, “I don’t see anything. I know you’re making a little sister for me. I won’t disturb you.”
