But I had to talk to Linda.
The next morning, I went to the studio and met Linda at the door. She saw me and was surprised. “Do you want to get back to work?”
Hearing what she said, I was a little embarrassed. I took her into the office and said, “I can’t come to the company these days, but I will continue to design that office building.”
I thought even if I worked for Sean as a servant, he had to sleep. I could sleep a few hours less and work.
Linda listened to me and was not surprised. “Is it because of Sean?”
“Yes.” I nodded. “I think he needs to be taken care of recently. I want to take care of him.”
I didn’t know if I could take care of him.
But I wanted to be with him.
Linda was helpless, but she said, “it doesn’t matter. I will send you the work, but I hope you will get the return.”
Linda put her hands on her chest and looked at me. “You’re a silly girl. You don’t want to be a designer but you want to be his servant. I can’t judge you. If he bullies you in the future, I can’t stand it.”
I opened my arms and hugged Linda.
After all, I didn’t know when I would be back.
When I was packing in the office, I was thinking about who I should go to.
If I went straight to Sean, he wouldn’t agree.
I could only ask James for help.
I packed up and went to James’s house.
But as soon as I got out of the taxi, I saw Monica calling. I saw her in the distance angry and shouting.
She had her back to me.
I approached her and heard her say, “we’ve helped you before. Now Sean’s just broken his leg. He has no high paraplegia. How can you ignore him? If his operation is successful and he recovers, I will not speak for you in the future!”
Who was she talking to?
It seemed to have something to do with Sean.
I stood a few meters away from her and listened.
Monica stomped angrily. “You grew up with Sean. Now he needs to be cared for. Don’t talk nonsense. Tell me if you want to go!”
She paused and said, “OK, Cindy, Jessop Family won’t agree to you marry Sean in the future!”
With that, she hung up.
She was angry and wanted to get on the car.
She saw me as soon as she looked back.
I thought about what she had just said and suddenly understood. I approached her at once.
Monica saw me and was impatient. “This is Jessop Family. Why are you here?”
“Auntie.” I was not angry. I went up to Monica and said, “I want to ask you something.”
“What is it?”
Monica looked at me and seemed to be looking at her enemies.
I was not sure if she hated me because she hated Cindy. I said, “I heard Sean drove the servants away. Does he need to be taken care of now?”
“How do you know?” Monica was more impatient.
I didn’t answer and said, “I don’t want other people to take care of Sean. Are you looking for a servant for him? What do you think of me?”
Monica was stunned.
She didn’t seem to have expected it. “What are you doing? How can I trust you to take care of him!”
“Auntie, aren’t you looking for a servant? I just want to be his servant. I can cook, wash clothes and sweep the floor. I grew up in an orphanage and have been looking after children younger than me. I will do anything.”
I really seemed to be applying to be a servant.
I started selling myself.
Monica looked at me and seemed unable to make a decision.
I knew she just talked to Cindy and Cindy refused to see Sean. This was a good opportunity. If I couldn’t persuade her today, it would be more difficult later.
“Auntie, you have to pay the servant. You might as well pay me. No matter how much you pay me, I agree. If you are not at ease, you can try my cooking.” I paused and said, “the new year is coming. There are few servants. Sean is emotional. If the new servant doesn’t know about it and gets hurt and chased out, you have to find another servant. I promise I won’t leave no matter what he does to me.”
When I finished, Monica looked moved.
She looked at me and sighed, “I understand your mind.”
“Auntie, please let me go there. I’m afraid he won’t let me go there.” I immediately stepped forward and approached, “I heard that Sean has no servant, and he will soon realize his inconvenience. If you say you find a servant for him, he will not object.”
Monica’s face didn’t change.
I knew she knew I was right.
She stood there and hesitated for a moment. At last she nodded, “OK, you said that no matter what he does, you will not leave and we will not need to find a servant for him in the future, right?”
“Yes! I promise!” I nodded desperately and asked, “how much can I get? You have to pay me so that I have reason not to leave when he drives me off.”
Monica thought and held out five fingers.
Monica looked at me in disgust.
She seemed to suspect that I looked down on Jessop Family.
Actually, I did it on purpose. I knew Monica was generous. She wouldn’t just give me five thousand dollars.
I pretended to be surprised and said with a smile, “thank you. When will you tell him? I can start at once.”
Monica loved her son. She immediately took out her phone and said, “I’ll call him now.”
When Monica told Sean, I didn’t hear Sean against it.
He seemed to have found no one to take care of him.
When Sean agreed, Monica took a set of servants’ clothes directly from James’ house and gave me 50000 dollars on the spot. She told me to go to Sean’s place early tomorrow morning.
Monica asked me to go there tomorrow morning, but I wasn’t in a hurry.
In the afternoon, I took Doris to Lester’s kindergarten and told Lester’s teacher that I was busy recently and Doris would come to pick up Lester.
Then I worked in the company for two days.
On the third day, I packed up and wore servants’ clothes and masks and hats. I wrapped myself up and came to the manor in the suburb of Jessop Family.
