Astrid, Atticus, and Dorian were also strolling down the lane.
Elowen and Sophia were having a blast, blowing fluffy reeds into the air, which floated around like dandelions.
Lysander’s gaze traveled past the floating reed fluff and landed on the two little munchkins.
They pouted their cheeks, looking like two adorable goldfish
After spotting a luxury car ahead, Evelyn instinctively knew the driver was no ordinary Joe. She moved the kids aside, “Stop blowing. See, the reed fluff is
all over that car
Elowen was having a whale of a time; her round, chubby face was all flushed and rosy, like a cute little apple. Her hair was tied in two cute pigtails, making her look so adorable that you could just eat her up
“Reed fluff is cute; I like it. It makes the car cuter Elowen’s words were heart-melting.
Lysander watched them. He wasnt typically a fan of kids, but these two girls were as cute as bugs in a rug. One had adorable pigtails, the other was rocking a cool baseball cap, and both were sporting cute bunny eared pink jackets.
Their cuteness melted his heart a little.
“Although you think it’s cute, adults might not feel the same. Let’s move aside and let the car pass.” Evelyn said patiently.
Elowen glanced at the car, and her eyes sparkled, “Hey, that guy looks familiar
She felt like shed seen him somewhere before
David facepalmed, thinking kids these days sure have a way with words.
Sophia looked up and pulled her hat up to reveal her eyes. She also spotted Lysander, and her cute eyes shined brightly, “He is so handsome!”
Lysander was flattered by the two little girls. His heart softened further, and he cracked a small smile.
Those two were just too cute and sweet.
Evelyn, fearing he might take offense, quickly corrected her “Mind your words”
“Hi, you’re so handsome. Can you be my mom’s friend? My grandma wants to set my mom up on a date, but if she has a boyfriend, she won’t need to Elowen said to Lysander with a wide smile.
Evelyn had been talking about setting Thalassa up on her way home.
Elowen fancied the handsome man
If he could be their dad, shed be over the moon. And so would her mom.
*Elowen, don’t talk nonsense. He can’t possibly be your mom’s boyfriend.” Evelyn was scared out of her wits and quickly stopped Elowen
Her daughter, a single mother with four kids, was hardly a catch for most men, let alone someone as grand and handsome as him,
How could he possibly fancy Thalassa, a single mother of four?
Annoyed, she scolded Elawen, then apologized
Ito Lysander, Tm sorry, the kid
are still young and don’t know any better. I hope you don’t mind.”
“It’s okay” Lysander replied in his deep voice.
He rolled up the window, blocking the girls’ view.
David started the car and drove off. He found it strange that Lysander didn’t lose his temper when the two little girls tried to chat him up, they even suggested that he come home to be their stepfather.
Normally, one glare from him would be enough to scare people off.
Evelyn watched the Rolls Royce drive away, then led Elowen and Sophia onward.
As they reached the village entrance, they overheard the villagers’ gossip
“Isabella’s boyfnend is a perfect mix of wealth and charm, and he’s so handsome. What a perfect man”
“Isabella is so lucky”
A sense of unease washed over Evelyn.
So the handsome man driving the luxury car was Isabella’s boyfriend.
Indeed, Isabella was lucky, unlike her daughter Thalassa, who had such a tough lot in life.
