The Three Little Guardian Angels Chapter 1228

chapter 1228

“Nelly.” Anthony came out to find her because he was worried about her. Seeing her standing at the door of the lounge, he breathed a sigh of relief. “Here you are.”

“Dad,” Naomi hid her hands behind her, “I… I met a friend just now, so I chatted with her for a bit.”

Anthony felt helpless. “Remember to at least inform me in the future, otherwise, I’ll be worried.”

“I’m sorry, Dad, I’ll pay more attention to that in the future.” She lowered her head. It was indeed her fault for making her father worried.

Anthony did not ask her anything, and they did not return home until the banquet was over.

Naomi walked back to her room, closed the door, and leaned behind the door. She opened her hand to expose her palm, which was covered with a tiny piece of gauze. Her heart started pounding again upon recalling that scene.

‘I seem to have fallen!’

“I heard that Mr. Hannigan’s lover jumped off the hospital room. How terrible is that.! ”

“Are you talking about the Mr. Hannigan who ran away from his own wedding ceremony with his lover?”

“Yes, there are rumors on the Internet saying that Ms. Santiago is the one who forced the woman into jumping off the building. Tsk, tsk, the daughter of the Santiagos is actually quite pitiful. Her fiance despises her so much that he ran away with his mistress in public. And now, she’s been made the primary suspect after the death of her fiance’s mistress, why doesn’t anyone actually remember that she’s the real deal? That she’s Mr. Hannigan’s actual fiancee?”

Two to three female staff members walked past Naomi, and she stopped when she heard the topic they were discussing. She looked surprised.

At that moment, Lucy just happened to come out of the elevator. Seeing that Naomi was standing there, pondering about something, she walked up to her and asked, “Naomi, why are you in a daze?”

Naomi returned to her senses and smiled. “ It’s nothing. I was just thinking about something.”

Lucy looked at her and patted her on her shoulder, “Then stop thinking about it already. Ms. Vanderbilt is coming back to the company today. We’ll have to work hard.”

She smiled and nodded.

Maisie arrived at Soul at noon, and Lucy handed her all the previous week’s reports when she returned to the office.

She took the reports from her and put them on the desk to go through them. “Did something huge happen when I was not around?”

Lucy smiled. “It’s really nothing major.”

Maisie nodded as if she had thought of something. “I asked you to bring Naomi around the company so she could learn a thing or two from you. How is it?”

Lucy frowned. “Ms. Vanderbilt, Naomi actually doesn’t suffer from any social anxiety disorder. She’s just a little introverted and shy, and she’s also a rich lady in hiding!”

Maisie lifted her head to look at her, only to see her continue laughingly. “Not to mention that she’s still a good-tempered and gentle rich lady.”

Maisie narrowed her eyes. “What in the world happened to the relationship between the two of you during my absence from the company?”

Before taking some time off, Maisie had asked Lucy to take care of Naomi for a while because she was worried the other employees would shun Naomi because of her temperament.

‘It seems that Lucy was the right choice. Compared with this girl, she talks a lot more and can hold a conversation with anyone. So as long as she’s there for Naomi, the latter will never feel lonely. In general, the effect has been great.’

Lucy scratched her cheeks and smiled. “ Anyway, we both have gone to the movies, eaten dinner, and gone shopping together. I think Naomi gets along with others very well. It’s just that the others in the company who don’t know her might misunderstand her.”

Maisie smiled. “She is not a difficult person to get along with, to begin with. It’s just that she doesn’t know how to integrate herself into a big group of people.”

Lucy wondered. “She doesn’t know how to integrate herself into a group of people?”

“Yeah.” Maisie nodded. “After all, she’s been isolated from society for such a long time, so she’s not used to it. Everything will be fine when she gets used to how things work in the future.”

Lucy was even more confused after hearing that. She recalled in a trance that Naomi had once told her that she no longer had the contact information of all her friends.

‘Could that be what she meant?’
