Chapter 8

Norah was really upset, her teeth almost sinking into her lip. But she had to put up a fake gentle smile as she followed behind the two. 

When they arrived home, the three of them noticed a luxury car that they had never seen before parked up in front of the door. 

Feeling curious, Gloria entered the house with her two daughters and saw a well-dressed man sitting across Daniel. 

Even if the man was not facing them directly, his extraordinary charm made it impossible for people to take their eyes off him. 

Norah had never seen such a good-looking man before. She rushed up to Gloria and said, “Mom, who is that person?” 

Gloria shook her head and walked in. “Hey, Daniel.” 

When Daniel saw Gloria and his daughters, he quickly got up and introduced them. “Jared, this is my wife, and this is my younger daughter.” 

As Daniel introduced Nicole to Jared Johnston, the affection on his face was plain to see. 

Norah was waiting for Daniel to introduce her, but Daniel did not even spare her a glance. 

Jared’s glacial eyes swept over the three of them, and then he stood up and nodded to Nicole. “Hello, I am Jared.” 

Jared’s words startled Gloria and Norah.
