Jessica and Carl were stunned when they heard Stanley's words.
They looked at each other and saw astonishment in each other's eyes.
Jessica met Summer in high school. Before that, Summer had always been alone and seemed to have no friends.
However, from Stanley's tone, it sounded not like a lie at all.
Stanley continued, "As for how I met her, I don't think it's necessary to tell Miss Jessica."
As he spoke, his gaze was still fixed on the elevator door. He was extremely calm and indifferent, his tone revealing a sedate aura.
"Mr. Stanley, you..."
Just as Jessica was about to say something, she was interrupted by the sound of the elevator arriving.
Stanley turned to look at Jessica and said indifferently, "Here we are."
They walked out of the elevator.
Jessica walked over to Stanley to block his way. "How do I know whether you're lying?"
"If it weren't for the fact that you were her friend, I wouldn't have given you the chance to question me." The indifference on Stanley's face was no longer there. A gloomy expression appeared in his eyes. It seemed that he was angry.
Jessica's expression changed slightly. "Since you know that she has friends, why didn't you contact us when you found her?"
"Why should I contact you? What responsibilities and obligations did I have?" Stanley curled his lips, revealing a scornful smile.
Before Jessica could say anything else, Carl pulled her behind him.
Carl's expression was not good. "At least, we are Summer's true friends. Who are you?"
Stanley directly ignored Carl's question and raised her wrist to look at the time, "I still have a few patients waiting for me this afternoon. I won't send you off."
After he finished speaking, he strode towards the parking lot.
Carl turned to look at Jessica. Seeing her worried expression, he couldn't help but say, "Well, how about us taking Summer away?"
"She won't leave with us. No matter how Stanley and Summer met, I can tell that he is really kind to Summer and won't hurt her."
Jessica paused for a moment and said, "Besides, Stanley has taken care of Summer for three years. It's not fair for us to take Summer away directly."
Carl's phone rang.
He picked up the phone. After someone talked at the other end of the line, Carl replied, "Well, send it to me now."
"What is it?" Jessica asked him curiously.copy right hot novel pub
