Nicholas lowered his thoughtful gaze, looking at Gregory's expectant expression, then Tessa. He nodded and said, "We do have a lot of empty rooms, and it won't affect much if you stay for the night. You can accompany Greg while you're at it, too. Sometimes I get busy and overlook his needs, so maybe you can stay and chat with him."
Tessa hesitated for a while, turning her gaze toward Gregory. The boy's watery eyes were filled with expectation, and one could hardly bear to refuse him.
She could only sigh helplessly. "All right, then. Thank you very much, President Sawyer."
Instantly, Gregory was overjoyed by her reply.
Later in the day, the three gathered for dinner. Perhaps because of Tessa's presence, Gregory had an exceptionally good appetite.
He shouldn't overeat, regardless. The doctor had told them to take care of his digestive system. Nicholas saw the joy in Gregory's face, and the coldness in his eyes eased off considerably.
