Lily nodded. Then she stood up and went to the bookshelf to take out some books she had read before. She decided to start this long lecture.
Lily gave the book to Luke. But Luke didn't open it and put it in front of him.
"No matter in China or abroad, you won't be taught the first lesson on books. Most of you will introduce yourself first." With his hands spread out, Luke said, "I think we have known each other. How about this? Miss Lillias tell me your own preferences, or your favorite subjects, or your dream. What do you think? "
like? Dream? This word was strange to Lily. She looked at Luke blankly, like an innocent baby.
"Well, tell me first." Luke did not intend to let Lily talk about this directly. He would like to use his experience to persuade her.
"When I was young, I dreamed of becoming a doctor. At that time, I was addicted to something that no one could see through... Cool. " Speaking of this, Luke found Lily smile on her face. "But then, by chance, I went abroad for further study. I stayed there for five years and now I'm back. I think it's a good chance for me to begin an educational career and have more freedom to do things. Besides, I believe I won't misguide the child."
Lily chuckled. She felt relaxed after hearing what Luke said.
Luke leaned his body forward, slightly tilted his head, and stared at Lily. "What kind of person do you want to become?"
This seemed to confuse Lily. Looking into Luke's eyes, she said, "I want to be a doctor or nurse if possible."
"Wow! You are an angel in white! Nice!" Luke walked back and leaned back against the chair. Then he crossed his legs and put his hands on his legs. Maybe it was because of his gentle temperament that he looked more focused. It seemed that Luke was encouraging and comforting Lily to go on talking.
Receiving Luke's encouraging look, Lily decides to tell him the reason.
Lily turned around and looked out of the window with her back to Luke. Although there was no balcony in this room, the floor to ceiling windows gave a wide view. From the distance of the villa, you could see the clouds floating in the clear sky and the birds occasionally. Everything was so natural.
"Because of my mother," Lily's eyes went farther, as if she saw her through time, and said, "she is the best mother in the world. She gave me all the best things. But after she got sick, I didn't know how to take care of her. "
The past came back to her. Lily could not help but think of the way she had stood helpless as her mother coughed violently. Her mother was so painful, but she could do nothing.
"I know everyone has different thoughts. Many people want to be Superman to protect the earth, while I only want to help my mother wash the dishes. " Then she smiled and said, "yes, it's vulgar, but my dream is to be selfish for my mother."
"Lily." suddenly, Luke felt that it was not proper to call her like that, so he changed the way he called her, "no, Miss Lillias, you're not selfish. Perhaps, you don't know, helping mom wash dishes is also a big project. I have never washed the dishes for my mother. You know what? I really admire you on that. "
He knew it was only a metaphor, but Luke still made a comment on it. He was so serious that Lily couldn't ignore it.
This kind of Luke made Lily novel.
In the past, no one wanted to see her.
But now, even though James treated her very well, he hadn't talked so much with her.
She unconsciously compared James with Luke, spring and winter, which was really extreme
The heavy topic passed in a few words from Luke. It was not difficult to find out that Luke was a very interesting person. He behaved in a polite manner and got along well with Lily. Although it was the first time that she had seen him.
"Well, since we are tutoring high school subjects, let's talk about what subjects you like the most. Anyway, it shouldn't be the beginning today. Let's have a talk first. " Luke raised his eyebrows.
"Favorite test? Hmm... "Lily rubbed her forehead.
"It doesn't matter. Be bold..."
"No, I didn't have..."
Luke had a "how could that be? You're kidding me" look on his face. Lily was embarrassed and said, "it's true..."
"Well, I see. But interest can be developed. We'd better not talk about it. We should relax ourselves on the first day. What do you want to hear? " Luke asked Lily.
Lily said tentatively. "Tell me about your school? I can use it for reference."
Luke was happy to talk about it and began to talk about his campus life.
Since he came to the villa, he had been talking with everyone kind and friendly, regardless of his parents or Lily.
It usually took about fifteen hours from England to A City. But the long flight didn't tire Luke.
It seemed that he was full of energy.
Meanwhile, another energetic man was having a meeting in his office.
He was expressionless, looking coldly at the report in front of him. His right hand was placed on the table, lightly tapping it. Seemingly casual, but the other people in the conference room were frightened.
They all knew that although he was only the general manager of the company, he was more intimidating than anyone else. Not only because his father is the President of the company, but also because of his aura and strength.
He liked quiet. He seldom spoke and was expressionless. But that was why people were afraid of him. They didn't know if they made him unhappy or if they would be removed from their position or even worse.
After everyone reported, the office was quiet. No one spoke, waiting for his declaration.
James stopped and glanced at everyone present, still expressionless. "Don't waste my time in such a meaningless meeting." After saying that, he walked out of the office and turned his back to his colleagues.
The rest in the meeting room looked at each other, sending a signal to each other. They were done. The next year's sales plan they made not only failed, but also displeased Mr. James.
After leaving the meeting room, James didn't go back to his own office. Instead, he took a special elevator to the underground garage. Instead of informing the driver, he went to the garage to pick up the car and drove it away.
Today, he was supposed to skip work and go home.
