Chapter 89: Elder Simon
This morning, I got up early, and decided that I’d get up at this time every day from now on.
It was a good habit.
After my talk with Jennifer, I decided to take her advice.
Right now, my only priority was to develop a good relationship with Dylan.
It would better for me to take the initiative to be good to Dylan and help him forget his painful past.
That was the most important thing.
I knew that Jennifer hadn’t slept well last night.
Now, seeing her finally get some rest, I decided not to wake her up just yet.
I went over to the kitchen of the hotel to make breakfast for everyone.
The truth was, this was the first time I had ever cooked.
But thinking of cooking for the one I loved made my heart swell with happiness.
I opened the fridge and saw steak and some other food inside that made my eyes light up.
With a big smile, I took out my phone and found a food vlogger.
She had millions of followers, and she looked like someone reliable to learn cooking from.
I opened her video and kept it on the counter so that I could watch it while cooking.
I prepared the ingredients as per her instructions.
When everything was ready, I put a steak on the pan.
But the moment I did, there was a loud sizzling sound, and thick smoke billowed up from the pan, startling me.
In an attempt to remedy the situation, I tried to turn over the steak with a spoon, but I accidentally ended up splashing the oil onto myself.
What was worse, the steak was charred, and the whole kitchen was filled with the smell of something burning.
The oil splashed onto my clothes, as well as my hands.
My skin began to blister.
I was scared that if I couldn’t fix this mess in time, the whole kitchen would go up in flames.
Anxious, I decided to turn off the stove.
Swallowing hard, I moved forward step by step towards the pan.
Suddenly, a hand reached out in front of me and turned off the stove.
It happened in less than a split second.
I hadn’t even heard someone enter the kitchen.
It was Dylan who had come to my rescue in time.
He pulled me back in a hurry.
Only then did I dare to meet his eyes.
I had turned the kitchen upside down.
In a panic, I had even knocked over the pan and scalded my hands with hot oil.
I was so embarrassed that I wish I could dig a hole and hide in it.
Would Dylan think that I was useless?
“Are you okay?”
Dylan asked anxiously, holding my hands.
I lowered my head silently.I couldn’t even bear to face him at the moment.I had just wanted to make breakfast for all of them, but I ended up making a mess instead.
“Skylar, are you okay? Are you hurt?” Dylan checked my hands in a hurry and frowned when he saw the blisters.
“Why were you so thoughtless? Why did you try to go near the stove when your hands were already hurt?”
Hearing his sharp questions, I suddenly felt a little aggrieved.
“I was just trying to make breakfast for you to cheer you up.If I can make you happy, you’ll forget the unpleasant past.”
As soon as I said that, I saw Dylan’s eyes soften.Then, he hugged me.
“Skylar, I hope you can understand that I told you those things only because I want you to know me better.I don’t want to hide anything from my mate,”he explained with a sigh.
“But I know that all those things happened in the past.I will try my best to forget them and welcome a new life with you.And I will never let you down.Do you understand?”
Before I could say anything, Dylan’s lips pressed against mine.
He hooked his tongue with mine, helping me regain a sense of security.
“Dylan, I love you,”
I said before kissing him back passionately.
Just like Jennifer said, I wanted to trust Dylan and give him some time.
Sooner or later, he would give me his love without reservation.
When I woke up, I found that Skylar was no longer in bed.
She had been upset about Dylan last night, and I was worried that she still hadn’t gotten over it yet, so I went downstairs to look for her.
As soon as I walked out of the room, I heard some noise coming from the kitchen, so I ran downstairs in a hurry.
When I saw that Dylan had arrived before me, I stopped in my tracks.
It seemed that Skylar was injured, but I knew that my brother would take care of her, so I didn’t barge in.
However, I was still worried about the two of them, so I lingered in the same place for a while to see how their conversation played out.
If they quarreled with each other, maybe I could mediate.
In particular, I was really worried about my brother.He was a little dull and not good at expressing himself.
I was pleased to see that he didn’t scold Skylar or blame her for anything.
I couldn’t hear the rest of their conversation, but I saw him bending down to kiss Skylar.It was only then that I inwardly breathed a sigh of relief.I was glad that the problem between the two had been solved.
I didn’t want to disturb them, so I turned around and tiptoed back upstairs.
After my brother took Skylar back to the room to treat her wounds, I went downstairs to buy breakfast for everyone.
After breakfast, Daniel told us that Helen wanted to meet us in the cafe this morning.
“Great! In that case, we’re a step closer to finding out the truth,” Skylar said excitedly.
Looking at the lively smile on her face, I was happy that she was full of life again.
“Well, let’s go and meet Helen as soon as possible, “I suggested.
The four of us rushed to the cafe together.When we arrived, we found that Helen had already ordered coffee for all of us.
I smiled at Helen to show my gratitude.
She nodded back before closing the door of the private room with a cautious look.
“Helen, thank you very much for helping us,” I said.
“You’re welcome,” Helen said with a bright smile, glancing over at Daniel before turning back to me.
“So what information do you have for us, Helen?” I asked curiously, sipping on the coffee.
Helen Iéaned in and lowered her voice.
“I’m sure Elder Tony is still alive.He happens to be my father’s best friend.My father is the only one who knows about Elder Tony’s real situation.According to my father, Elder Tony escaped to a mountain in the east of the pack way before, but there has been no word from him for a long time, so he is not sure if he still lives there.But…”
She trailed off and looked at me hesitantly.
“Helen, please go ahead,” I urged gently.
Helen took a deep breath and nodded.
“Jennifer, my father said that he wants to see you. If it’s not a problem for you, would you like me to arrange a meeting with him?” I froze for a moment.
I was really surprised that an elder of the Rainbow Pack wanted to see me.
“May I know who your father is?” I asked.
“His name is Simon.”
From what I remembered, Simon was one of my father’s right-hand men.
Anyway, as long as he wasn’t loyal to Arthur Wood, I could consider meeting him.I smiled at Helen.
“Helen, please tell your father that I agree to meet him.”
If it turned out that Helen’s father was still loyal to my father, it would be much easier for us to achieve our goal of finding out the truth.
