Her heart pounding, she looked at the man before her and saw that he was not looking composed
In fact, his face was pale, as if he was more scared than she was.
Their eyes met for a couple seconds, but just as Cordy was about to struggle out of John’s arms, he
scooped her up in his arms.
“What do you think you’re doing?!”
“Carrying you back to your room.”
“I don’t need that. I can walk fine on my own.”
“Keep moving, and we’d both fall.”
Cordy gritted her teeth, but she had no choice but to take it since she could not move, even though she
suffered considerably from it.
Still, John quickly strode up the stairs with her in his arms and took her to her room.
He put her in bed and left immediately after, as if she would sully his modesty if he lingered even for a
Cordy pursed her lips.
John was already gone, but she did not get to vent her grief at all!
“You’re back already, daddy?” Richard exclaimed in surprise as he watched John come downstairs.
“What silly ideas are you cooking now?” John patted Richard’s head as he walked past the boy. “Come
on. We’re going to Levine Manor.”
“Are you sure you’re not going to stay? Mommy’s drunk—aren’t you going to take care of her?”
“She can take care of herself.”
With that, he left with Richard.
Cordy worked overtime over the entire weekend in Richard’s absence, since it meant she did not have
to spend time with him.
“Ms. Sachs,” Robin greeted her as he handed her their tender proposal.
However, it was obvious that Cordy was distracted—something that never happened before.
After all, she was always tireless and completely focused, so what had gotten her today?
“Yeah. Put it there—I ‘ll look through it later,” Cordy told him. ” Also, it’s the weekend. You really don’t
have to work overtime with me. You should spend more time with your family.”
Robin stared at her in surprise for a moment before quickly saying, “Okay. Thank you, Ms. Sachs. Do
take care of yourself.”
After Robin left, Cordy was left alone in her office, and she soon decided that she was in no mood to
She was simply feeling too restless.
She got out of her chair and stood before her glass wall, wondering if she was suddenly gripped by a
sense of loneliness.
Patrick was not going to show up in North City for a while after returning to Rocktown, and Richard was
away for the weekend with John.
As for Zoe, she would naturally spend all the time she had with family, while Quinn was busy with
Was this how being single at thirty felt? It was certainly a feeling she has not experienced for years.
She turned and pored over her work again until her phone suddenly rang.
It was John.
“Can you come to Levine Manor to take Dicky home? Something came up for me this evening, so I
can’t send him home myself. Though you don’t have to come if you don’t mind me asking a chauffeur
to take him…”
“I’ll come,” Cordy said without hesitation.
“Great. See you soon.”
Cordy hung up, and drove straight to Levine Manor, where John was waiting with Richard at the gates.
It did not escape Cordy’s notice that John was dressed smartly in a suit, and it was obvious that he had
made an effort to look good. So what big occasion was he attending this time?
