Nicholas didn't say anything as he drove Tessa and Timothy home. "If you need anything, just call me."
Tessa nodded. "Thank you, President Sawyer." With that, she entered the house without looking back.
Upon returning home, Tessa breathed a sigh of relief and thought, That was close. Earlier, when she saw the look in Gregory's eyes, she nearly relented and brought him home. Now, this outcome was pretty good.
She sighed, then smiled and said to Timothy, "It's been a long time since I came back. Our own home is always the most comfortable."
Not noticing anything strange, Timothy smiled. "You don't say. You haven't been home for so long that it's starting to accumulate dust, yet you're saying that it's comfortable. Go outside and sit down. I'll clean up the room for you."
Tessa chuckled, then obediently sat aside. "It's been a hard time for you, Tim. When I've recovered, I'll cook a grand meal for you."
