lt;pgt;Lily watched Alexander until he disappeared from her sight. Only then did she get out of the car. She
saw Justin looking straight at her and seemed to be waiting for her.
lt;pgt;She just realized that something was not right. Lily had already shown her face, and the servant had
already sent a message. Therefore, it was impossible no one in the family knew she was here. How
come there were no servants when she got out of the car?
lt;pgt;It seemed like Justin had deliberately arranged it to prevent commotion. She had nothing to hide now
that she was back. She gathered up her clothes and walked over to him. Justin looked at his cousin in
front of him and said, “You‘re finally back.”
lt;pgt;“I said before that I‘ll be back.” Lily‘s words implied that she would keep her promise.
lt;pgt;He lightly nodded and said, “Grandpa is waiting for you.”
lt;pgt;It was good to have him lead the way as he had cleared the way from other guests, preventing
lt;pgt;“I know. Thank you for the information you previously provided.” Lily recalled what Justin had given her
and felt it necessary to thank him. Justin did not look back, “There‘s no need to thank me. After all, you
didn‘t use it.” While it was true that he gave Lily information documents, she still kept them and did not
publicly announce everything.
lt;pgt;When Justin approached Lily, she realized the Lodge family knew almost everything about her, even
though they seemed to ignore her. Otherwise, they would not be so clear about her situation and be
able to collect and give her private information about Nathaniel. “Either way, I still need to say thank
lt;pgt;They went in from a small building on the side, passed through the long corridor at the back, and
reached the building behind it. The front was for receiving guests, while the back was where the Lodge
family lived. Guests would not be able to come and go easily here, so the atmosphere at the back was
lt;pgt;“Why did you not include this when you have already announced all the other evidence?” Justin asked
while walking, “Do you still love him?” Lily shook her head, “Never force others to a dead end. That‘s
what the family taught us since we were kids. Did you forget?” It was, of course, impossible for Justin to
forget about this. He was only teasing her. He stopped his steps and grinned. “So you still remember.”
lt;pgt;Of course, she still remembered since it was something ingrained deep in her. So much so that she
could not forget it even if she wanted to. Lily habitually wanted to go upstairs after entering the building
at the back but saw Justin walking straight, turned the corner, and headed to a room on the first floor.
Lily was stunned for a while before she followed closely, “Grandpa changed his room?”
lt;pgt;“He‘s getting old, and it‘s inconvenient for him to go up and down the stairs. It’s more convenient for
him to live on the first floor.” Justin paused briefly and turned to look at her
lt;pgt;” You haven‘t been back for too long.” It‘s been too long to the point that she did not even know about
lt;pgt;Lily remained silent as Justin continued, “Grandpa is old and had some minor health problems, so
you‘d better not...” He paused but did not say further. He walked to the door and knocked gently,
“Grandpa, it‘s me.” The duo heard sounds of coughing coming from the room. An old but loud voice
answered, “Come in.”
lt;pgt;Lily had initially thought she could face her grandfather calmly. However, she could not help but feel
nervous when she was about to step into the room.lt;/pgt;
