Lauren did not speak for the rest of the journey. Instead, she fiddled with her pocket in the back seat.
Ben peeked at her through the mirror a few times. He did not notice any other abnormal behavior.
“It’s just a small bag. She’s been looking at it for a while,” Ben thought. “This child was initially weak, so she went to that church for a few years. Now, she might have a problem with her brain.”
The second half of the car ride passed peacefully. Ben, who always drove under the slogan of “Safety First”, sped up when he met this little troublemaker.
The one and a half hour drive was shortened to forty-five minutes..
When the car stopped in front of the Torres family’s mansion, Ben finally heaved a sigh of relief.
He turned around and saw that Lauren was actually reading a book!
What could a four-and-a-half-year-old girl understand? Besides, where did this book come from? Lauren only had a small pink bag the size of a fist.
While Ben was puzzled, Lauren was talking to the system in her mind.
“Little Nine, is this uncle bad-mouthing about me?” Lauren’s [mind-reading technique] was currently at Tier 2. She could only faintly sense whether other people’s thoughts were positive or negative, good or bad.
If she wanted to know exactly what other people were thinking, she still needed to continue mastering it.
When the system heard her name, it appeared.
[System Divine Nine complained, “Host, Can you not call me ‘Little Nine’? I’m System Divine Nine, but the way you call me makes me feel like I’m weak!”]
Lauren said, “Little Nine, I told you not to call me host, instead call me princess, troublemaker or Missy, just pick one!”
[System Divine Nine replied, “Alright, Troublemaker. You don’t have to worry about whether the other party has spoken ill of you. Have you remembered the points that I told you to pay attention to in the Torres family?”]
“I remembered, be... be polite!” i𝒏𝒏𝐫𝑒𝐚d. c𝐨𝗺
Ben was kind-hearted. After getting out of the car, he opened the car door for Lauren.
After all, she was the Master, and he was still aware of it.
Divine Nine disappeared again. Lauren closed the book that was filled with words, crossed her arms in front of her chest and carefully got out of the car.
However, the car was still too high from the ground. Lauren’s short legs could not reach it.
She put down the book again, held the car door with her hand and moved down carefully.
It still did not work. It was so high!
“Uncle, can you carry me out of the car?”
Lauren opened her arms and waited for help.
Ben had to agree to Lauren’s request. He carried her out of the car. Just as he was about to put her down, Lauren pouted and refused to walk by herself.
“Uncle, can you carry me inside? I am afraid.”
If the people in the church and the abbey knew that Lauren said she was afraid, they would probably laugh their teeth out.
When did this little devil ever say she was afraid?
She had always been the one who made others afraid.
However, Ben did not know any of this. He thought that Miss Lauren was really afraid because she was a newcomer. Although some unpleasant things had happened just now, she was actually quite pitiable.
With this thought in mind, Ben went along with Lauren’s wishes and carried her in.
“Uncle Ben treats me quite well. I will give him a house in the future!” Lauren thought to herself.
Inside the Torres family’s mansion.
The servants were all busy with their own matters. Although they knew that Lauren was coming back today, they had long known that Lauren did not have any status in this family.
Therefore, when they saw Lauren being carried in, they only took a glance at her and did not take any action.
Even when a random guest came, there were people serving tea and pouring water. However, now that Lauren had entered, no one paid any attention to her. Lauren kicked her little legs and said, “Uncle, you can let me down now. I can walk on my own.”
At this moment, Mr. Hayes, the old butler of the Torres residence, came over.
“Miss Lauren has finally arrived home!” Mr. Hayes had worked in the Torres family for more than a few decades. He had watched the three outstanding young masters of the Torres family grew up.
Lauren tried her best to raise her head and look at this old man with a white beard. She felt a sense of familiarity.
Because this old man was very similar to the Elders.
Thus, Lauren revealed the sweetest smile she had today. The corners of her mouth curled up. Her round eyes seemed to be able to speak, and there were even dimples on her cheeks!
“Yes, Grandpa, Lauren is home! Is this my home?”
Mr. Hayes was overjoyed when he heard Lauren call him ‘Grandpa’. He had thought that this child would be estranged from him.
“Of course this is Miss Lauren’s home!”
