lt;pgt;Olivia took leave due to her injury and dealing with her mother’s funeral.
lt;pgt;The fire caused a stir across Sapphine City. The buildings still had some residents in them even though
it was old and dilapidated. There were seven dead, nine were severely injured, and 23 people with light
injuries because of the fire. It was a serious matter and attracted the local government‘s attention.
lt;pgt;In addition to sending condolences to those impacted, they also strictly investigated the cause of the
fire. However, the alleys in the area were narrow and did not have any surveillance cameras. Moreover,
it was late at night, and many residents were asleep. Therefore, no one knew how the fire started. It
was already a big fire by the time anyone noticed.
lt;pgt;The tentative speculation was due to the old wiring that caused public outrage. The public believed that
this was the dereliction of the government. The government failed to enforce regular maintenance and
renovations on these old buildings.
lt;pgt;It resulted in a series of butterfly effects. The authorities carried out investigation and accountability
across all relevant departments. They also carried out maintenance and renovations at other older
communities. This fire incident and related news were in all recent reports and newspapers.
lt;pgt;Lily could hardly watch the news about the incident as she would feel uncomfortable. It was likely due
to personally witnessing the fire. She turned off the television and sighed. Olivia was on leave.
lt;pgt;Lily also had not been to the laboratory for three days as she had no inspiration or new ideas. Her mind
was blank. She knew she should not let her emotions influence her. She also needed to push for some
progress on the Southbank Soap. However, she could not control her emotions.lt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;“The company will send someone to express condolences and flowers at Olivia‘s mother‘s funeral.”
Alexander worked from home and accompanied Lily all day. The doctor had made it clear that she was
fine and only needed rest when she was discharged from the hospital that day. However, Alexander
was still worried. He expressed his concern through his actions and not his words.
lt;pgt;There were computers and mobile phones that made remote working very convenient. Still, some
meetings had to be canceled or postponed.
lt;pgt;“Okay.” Lily nodded and asked, “Is Edward still by her side?” She had not seen Edward these few days.
Alexander said he had sent him to care for Olivia, which was good.
lt;pgt;Oliva used to live with her mother, but she was the only one left after her mother passed away. Lily was
afraid Olivia‘s mind would run wild if no one accompanied her. Although Edward was usually quiet, he
was the right person to accompany Olivia at this moment.
lt;pgt;He had sufficient ability to take care of Olivia, and he would not ask her questions she would not want
to answer, which would further annoy her.
lt;pgt;Alexander nodded, “Olivia‘s rented house got burned down, so I told Edward to take her to a small
apartment under my name.” “Thank you!” Lily needed to thank Alexander regardless. He had done too
much for her.
lt;pgt;“You are talking nonsense again!” He tidied her messy hair and asked softly, “What do you want to eat
today?” Lily shook her head as she had no appetite after what had happened. “If you don‘t have an
appetite, how about eating something sour to pique your appetite? How about something sweet to help
you stimulate the secretion of dopamine instead?” Alexander paused before suggesting, “Brunswick
lt;pgt;Lily helplessly smiled when she saw the look in Alexander‘s eyes. Just as she was about to answer,
she heard him say,“ Don‘t say no!”
lt;pgt;“I didn‘t say no. What I want to say is that it sounds delicious. I want to eat that.” How could Lily refuse
his kindness when he was so considerate of her?
lt;pgt;Alexander smiled with satisfaction. He leaned over and kissed her cheek, “Wait for me.”
lt;pgt;He got up and went to the kitchen. Suddenly, his phone rang, and he picked it up after checking that it
was his assistant who had called him, “Hello?”lt;/pgt;
