Uncle's Love: My Sweet Little Wife
Chapter 15 Are You Healthy Enough?
During dinner, Kara mentioned going back to school. "Uncle James, I'm a senior. I don't have much time before the college entrance exam. I should work harder. Since she entered high school, Sophia had been telling her that she was in poor health and she should not overwork herself. She did not need to put much effort into it. Now she realized that it was Aunty Sophia's excuse to make her a useless person!. She wanted to be independent and self-reliant, so she can't fall behind in her studies. Kara said urgently. Her voice was soft and low. It was like a warm spring breeze blowing by his ears. He felt warmth in his heart. "Do you think you are healthy enough?". Kara nodded seriously. She was sure of it. James did not say anything else. He got up early the next day and knocked on her door. Kara was annoyed to hear the knock, but she managed to get up. At last, she was carried back by him. And she fell asleep on his back. When James put her down, he heard her breathing. He raised his eyebrows. This girl was having a deep sleep. "Mr. James, breakfast. "Be quiet. Kara is sleeping. " James whispered. Libby followed him upstairs and muttered to herself, 'Mr. James has taken this little girl as her daughter. When Kara woke up again, she didn't know what time it was. She washed up and went downstairs. Only then did she know that it was afternoon. Thinking of the promise she made to Uncle James yesterday, she felt a little embarrassed. She rested for three days. James consulted Will before he agreed to let her go to school. "Uncle James, you don't have to send me to school
Kara got into the car and sa w James. She was surprised and re alized that he was going with her. "It's alright. Let's go. James said indiffere ntly to Mason, the driver. His voice was a bit cold. Kara felt that she had been bothering him with her mat ters. She felt a bit sorry. There wasn't much space in the car. She was nervous and kept silent with her head lowered. James was not a talkative per son. He supported his head with on e arm and closed his eyes to rest. They soon arrived at school. Kara let out a long sigh of relief when s he got out of the car. Standing outside the car window, she could see his ha ndsome face under the sun. Her heart beat wildly, and her cheeks turned red. "Uncl e James, t his is me. She wanted to thank him for sending her to school, but she paused. He had emphasized many times that she didn't need to thank him. "Uncle James, have a good day. I will study hard. The little girl nervously bit her pink lips and said with a serious expre ssion. James could not help but chuckle. "Call me if you n eed anything. I'll pic k you up after school. Kara went to the classroo m. She felt delighted as she t hought of James' gentle voice. "Hey, Miss Sickly, w hy did you come to school ? I thought you are gone. Arya, Kara's desk mate, put her arm on Kara's shoulde r and said in a mocking tone. Kara had a bad health and was not welco me in her family, so Arya always joked that she was Miss Sickly with miserable fortunes. However, Kara did not like that nick name. She didn't want to be thought as se ntimental, high-hearted, and short-lived. Looking at Arya's worried eyes, she now felt that Arya really cared about her. As for those wh o kept flattering her, they were Sophia's lackeys! . Kara didn't want to hide anything from Ary a about her and the Quains, so she told Arya th at she was nearly beaten to death in the villa. "It's good to leave the Qu ains. I've told you they are mon sters
They will gobble you up. Kara was glad to have the supp ort of her good friend. She nodded w ith a smile. They continued to chat. "What's the homework? " Kara asked. As Kara mentioned study, Arya 's mouth twitched. She pointed at the drawer filled with test papers. "I'm an academic loser. Ho w could you ask me about study? Do you think I know the answer?" . Kara smiled bitterly. The grades of her and Arya had be en at the bottom of the class. Kara took out the test papers . There were a dozen of them. She felt stressed. It was a huge task! . "Kara, I've fi nished my homework. You can copy mine. Kara raised her head and s aw Rose standing in front of he r. There was hatred in her eyes. Rose was Sophia's niece. This year, she was a repeat student at the best high school i n NK City and had been staying at the Quain's. Rose liked to talk to Kara. She would ask Kar a to tell Sophia about what she needed, either food or drinks, instead of directly speaking to Sophia. Kara thought that it was because Rose was not familiar with the Quains, but now she reali zed that Rose was just taking advantage of her. Aunty Sophia said that someone had drugged her. Rose was always with her, so Rose might have get involved in it! . People around her might poison her at an y time. Thinking of this, Kara broke out in a cold sweat and moved over to keep a distance. Rose's voice wasn't low w hen she said this. Many student s looked at Kara with contempt. It was an important period for seniors. However, she did n't focus on study and asked for leaves. Now she even copied others' homework. She was lying to the teachers. How shameful!
