Quickening his pace, Benedict stared at the flowers in front of him. His gaze was filled with both delight and concern.
Delighted because Vivian had finally decided to open herself up emotionally given that she was willing to accept someone else’s flowers. After all, it was considered a good start. However, he was worried that she might meet someone wrong and be hurt all over again.
“Vivian, who gave you the flowers?” Benedict asked the same question Larry did.
Shaking her head, Vivian explained, “I only accepted it because there was no way to decline. Ben, don’t make too much out of it.”
Despite what she said, it was the first time he saw her bringing back a bouquet of flowers after so many years. Hence, it was understandable for him to be concerned given how much he cares about his sister.
Having approached her, Benedict solemnly reminded, “Vivian, if you have really met someone, don’t hold yourself back. Remember to seize the opportunity to find happiness. I’ll be behind you in whatever you do.”
“Mmm-hmm.” Vivian nodded as she was touched by his words. “I know, Ben.”
“Does the person who gave you the flowers really not have a chance?” Benedict probed. “Can you tell me who it is? After all, it’s my duty as your brother to look out for you.”
Vivian couldn’t help but smile at Benedict’s question. “Ben, I promise you that if I really meet someone suitable, I will give it a chance. However,” she looked at the flowers Larry was holding and shook her head before adding, “this man doesn’t stand a chance. Hence, there’s no need to introduce him to you.”
As it was now obvious she didn’t fancy the person who gave her the flowers, Benedict felt disappointed. Nevertheless, he still maintained his gentle smile. “Since it’s not a possibility, let’s stop talking about it. Come, it’s time for dinner.”
Although he had hoped that Vivian would meet someone new, forget the bitter memories from her time with Finnick, and find her own happiness, he knew it wasn’t something that could be rushed. Most importantly, she had to have feelings for that person.
After grunting in acknowledgment, Vivian was both moved and relieved.
She had a good idea of what Benedict was thinking about. However, she knew he would never force her to do something that she wasn’t willing to do. He really cares a lot about me.
“Little pumpkin, put down the flowers. Let’s go wash your hands,” Vivian instructed as she turned to look at Larry.
“Okay.” Putting the flowers back where he took them, Larry let out a long sigh with his back facing Vivian. Luckily, Mommy doesn’t like the man who gave her the flowers. Or else, what’s going to happen to Daddy?
As he ambled to Vivian’s side, he obediently followed her to wash his hands. However, his expression was still filled with concern.
Although Mommy doesn’t like the man who gave her the flowers, she is still very pretty and would definitely have other suitors sooner or later. If Mommy falls for someone else, wouldn’t I then have a step-dad?
With that thought in mind, Larry shook his head vehemently. That can never happen! He didn’t want a step-dad. Instead, he just wanted Daddy. Daddy is so awesome and only he is compatible with Mommy.
“What’s wrong?” Vivian asked when she saw Larry shaking his head all of a sudden. Placing her hand on his forehead to check, she realized it wasn’t hot. “Little pumpkin, are you feeling alright?”
“It’s nothing. My neck was just itchy just now.” Larry replied with a random excuse as his heart raced nervously.
Vivian suspected nothing as she gently slapped his neck. “Is it still itchy?”
“Not anymore.” Larry answered.
“Let’s go have dinner then.” Vivian helped Larry dry his hands.
As Vivian carry him to the dining table, Larry resolved in his heart to find out the true reason Daddy and Mommy split up.
However, how am I going to go about doing it? He fell into another dilemma.
The next day, Vivian went to the office after dropping Larry off at school. Her appointment with Evelyn to watch the opera together was in the afternoon.
After leaving work at noon, she gave Hunter a call. She agreed to meet him in front of her office so that they could go to the opera house together.
