Love Comes To Me
Chapter 12 Not Picky About Food
Eloise thought about it for a moment and felt that it was impossible. Who was Hector? He was the president of the Rogers Group and a celebrity! How could he have come to pick her up himself?. Maybe he meant to wait for her at home. The more she thought about it, the more she felt it was possible. Eloise dared not delay, so she hurriedly packed her things and went downstairs to get a taxi. It was still early and there were a lot of cars on the street. But she didn't know what was going on tonight. She waited for a long time without seeing an empty car pass by. Just as she was anxious, a black Bentley quietly pulled up beside her. Then the window slid down to reveal two faces, one large and one small. The two faces were as exquisite and perfect as if they were enlarged and reduced versions. The big man was like a god, and the little boy was cute. At this moment, the little boy was holding out his two short, fat hands and greeting her excitedly, "Miss Eloise, we're here to pick you up. Eloise was flattered. She hurriedly took a few steps forward to hold his little hand. And looking slowly at the man in the car, she said, "Mr. Rogers, you don't have to come here yourself? I can just go back myself. "No matter. Get in the car first. Hector loosened his tie and moved in. Eloise hesitated for a moment but got into the car. She hadn't really thought that Hector would come!. Once in the car, Solomon immediately rubbed up against her leg and asked for a hug. Eloise was happy to do so and took him in her arms. Solomon's body was so soft. Hector rolled up his cuffs gracefully and asked, "Have you eaten?". "Not yet. " Eloise responded casually, and then she was startled, "What about you guys? Have you eaten?". When she got busy with work, she often forgot to eat. She was worried that Solomon was going hungry along with her. Hector seemed to be able to read her thoughts and said, "Solomon ate the bread. I haven't eaten. "That's good. " Eloise sighed with relief and then felt a little apologetic, "Sorry, I didn't mean to. "It's okay. Solomon's not hungry. Solomon nuzzled into her arms docilely. Eloise was amused by him and rubbed his head. Hector watched the two interact and wondered. A ripple of warmth rose in his eyes, which were always cold. He said in a soft voice, "I've booked a table at the restaurant
Let's eat out tonight. "Sorry, I. Eloise was a little hes itant and had an indescribabl y eerie feeling in her heart. How this gave her the feeling tha t they were family! . Hector, however, affirmed, "There is nothing to be embarrassed about. Solomon and I have been bothering yo u for two days. It is just a meal to show my gratitude. As they spoke, the car had arrived in front of a Chinese restaurant. Eloise got down with Solomon in her arms and saw the signboar d of the restaurant, 'Belvedere'. The n ame was rea lly famous. It was one of City J's most famous restaurants, with its elegant landscaping, o ld-fashioned loft, and excellent food. It was featured in every major food magazine in China. It was said that one had to book a seat two months in advance to eat here. In the past, Eloise would never have been able to affor d a meal at a place like this. But now she b enefited from asso ciation with them. The three of them entered the re staurant side by side. The waiter gree ted them and led them to the VIP room. There were menus on the ta ble and Hector asked Eloise, "I s there anything you don't eat?" . Eloise shook her head, "No, I can eat anything. She wa s not picky about food! . Hector smiled sli ghtly, "I'll just order whatever I want then. He looked at the menu and ordered four dishes . It was just enough for them to eat. Even if they couldn't finish it, it wasn't too much of a waste. While they waited for their food, Hector sat sti ll and didn't say anything. Eloise and Solomo n were chatting. So sh e didn't feel awkward. When the food was ser ved, Hector suddenly said, "Are you always so busy?" . Eloise responded, "No, not really. I used to be a handyman and wasn't bus y at all. This time, I got this project out of the blue and I'm just a bit busy . " She paused and said, "I'd like to thank you for giving me this opportunity. Hector said, "There's nothing to thank me for, and it wasn't me who gave you the opportunity. It was Solomon who picked you. "Is that so?" Eloise was suspicious. She didn't seem to believe much of what he said. Hector took a sip of his tea and said g racefully, "Of course. Eloise blin ked and accepted that naturally. It made no differ ence whether it was hi m, or Solomon, anyway. Still, she felt warm inside and was even more determined to m ake this birthday party a success. Later in the evening, af ter dinner, the three of them left the restaurant together
Solomon was afraid of being dragged home aga in, so he put his arms tightly around Eloise's le gs and hid behind her, looking at his dad warily. Hector was amused by h im, so he said to Eloise, "C ome on. I'll walk you back. Eloise gave him a sus picious look and wondered if he wanted to stay again. Hector caught a glimpse of her look out of the corner of his eye. A glint of playfulness flashed across his eyes as he said, "D on't worry, I have something to do tonight, so I won't bother you. Hearing what he said, Eloise blushed a nd looked embarrassed. An imperceptible smile ap peared on Hector's face as he opened the car door for Eloise. Half an hour later, the car arrived at Flo wer Community. And after Eloise had returned ho me with Solomon in her arms, Hector left again. Hector drove t he car all the way back to Royal Villa. This was the most famous villa area in City J, and all the people who lived here were rich and famous. After parking the car in the garage, Hector wen t straight into the house. When the butler saw him, h e hurried forward to take his c oat, "Mr. Rogers, you're back. "Yes. " Hect or nodded as he c hanged his shoes. Just as he had finished changing, he heard urg ent footsteps from inside and then saw Rupert runni ng out with a middle-aged noblewoman in a cheongsam. "Brother, why are you so late?" Ru pert asked casually. But the lady didn't even look at him. S he looked around him before asking, "Where's Solomon? Why didn't he come back with you?" . Hector frowned at her, "Why are y ou back early? I thought Dad said you wouldn't be here for a couple of days. The noblewoman said impatiently, " I couldn't wait. I missed Solomon so muc h. Where is he? Where have you got him?" . "Yes, brother, where is Solomon? You didn't lose him, did you? Dad and Mum went straight here as soon as they got off the plane and they ha ven't even come back to the mansion yet. " Rupert also asked in confusion. Rupert said calm ly, "He's staying at my friend's house . "What? You put Solomon up at your friend's house? Whic h friend? How can that be? Solomon doesn't like strangers. What if he cries in the middle of the night when he sleeps?" . The noblewoman . , also known as Matriarch Rogers, was furious when she heard this, "You brat. Are you still his fa ther? You're too careless! Hurry up and go get Solomon back. Rupert also thought his mother had a point. He immed iately agreed, "That's right, brother. How can you leave S olomon out there? He's so cute. What if he gets abducted?" . Hearing them talking, Patriarch Rogers also came out a nd heard Rupert's words. He froze for a moment and asked, " What's going on? Is that friend of yours a man or a woman?" . Hector pinched h is brow with a headach e and said, "A woman!"
