Mission To Remarry Novel Chapter 170 – Sunce Alfred‘s treatment had come to an end, all that was required next was to prescribe him medicauon regularly and remind him to take the pills on ume.
As such, there was no need for Roxanne to biked over to the Quoin residence now and then.
And non that she had plenty of unci, she spent almost the whole day at the research institute,
either handling miscellaneous work or heading to the research facility and joining the other researchers in the research.
As Colby had been working as her assistant while she was overseas previously, he continued helping her. Needless to say, the two had a great rapport.
That particular day, the two walked out of the research facility earlier than usual as they had finally achieved a breakthrough h in their research.
Colby suggested, “Since we‘ve been so busy for the past few days, why don‘t we have a meal together to celebrate?”
Roxanne glanced at the time and apologized, “Let‘s do it another day. I still h aver to pick my kids up.”
It did not seem proper for Colby to insist since Roxanne had given that reaso n. And so, the two left the research institute and went in separate ways.
Upon getung into the car, Roxanne‘s phone rang again. This time, it was a call from Larry.
“What is it, Larry?” Lary‘s gentle voice rang out from the other end of the line. “Do you have time later? We haven‘t had time to meet up after coming back here. I wonder if I h ave the honor of having you join me for a meal, Dr. Jarvis?”
Just as Roxanne wanted to use the same excuse she had given Colby earlier , Larry interrupted, “I‘ve booked a restauant and am only waiting for you
to come over.” Hearing that, she swallowed her words back.
It was true that she was in a rush to pick up the three children, but since Larry was so adamant about having a meal with her, she reckoned it would be inappropriate if she refused any further. Besides, Larry had offered her a lot of help when she was abroad.
No matter what, it did not seem right for her to leave the man all by himself. “All right. Where are you? I‘ll head over now.” Eventually, she accepted his in vitiation. At once, Larry gave her the restaurant‘s name and location, almost as though he knew her answer beforehand.
Roxanne promptly agreed. After concluding the call, she made another call to Catalina, asking the latter to help pick the
Tour children up tromp the kindergarten. With that, she changed her route and head edh toward the address Larry provided her.
By the use she arrived, Larry had already waited for her for quite some time. At the sight of Roxanne, he waved and
beckoned her over. Hurrying over and soling down in the seat opposite his, she said apologetically, “Sorry for the wait.”
Larry smiled. “No worries. Did I disturb you while you were at work earlier?” Back when they were overseas, Roxanne would often forget about the time b
ecause of work. At times, she would even stay up the entire night for work.
Roxanne giggled while shaking her head. “No. I just happened to have ended work earlier today.” Having said that, she beckoned the waiter and turned to Larry. “Let me treat you to a meal today since I‘m late. Besides, I returned earlier than you, so we‘ll treat this as a welcoming feast for you.”
Larry readily agreed, “Well then, don‘t mind if I do.” Afire ordering some food, the two began chatting about work and gradually be
came engrossed in the conversation. Al that moment, the restaurant manager marched in, leading a group of people behind him.
Surrounded by men, Lucian had to ulu his head every so often to listen to the m talk. As he happened to turn in a direction, he spotted a familiar silhouelle soling at a table by the window. His face instantly darkened when he took a second look at the two figures chafing happily.
“Mr. Farwell?” Baffled, someone in the group called him afire nouning that he suddenly stopped in his tracks.
Lucian‘s brows scrunched up as he slowly withdrew his gaze and followed th e crowd into a private room.
