Olivia was sent back to the Heath Residence.
Although Linus said that he trusted her, she felt like her future here
was up in the air. Many people wanted to stay around the Heaths for
the status and opportunities that came with being close to Mason.
Besides, Mason had just experienced two assassination attempts.
The Heaths wouldn’t just let her leave.
Olivia waited in the tea room. It was still cold out. Brewing some tea
and lighting a scented candle was very relaxing for her.
There weren’t any classified documents in the tea room, just some
Mason learned that she liked drinking tea. So, he told her that she
could brew tea for herself. The teas that were stored in his tea room
were all very high quality. They were some of the best that money.
She wasn’t bold enough to do it while Mason was present. But there
wasn’t anyone there at the moment, so she was able to let herself go
and taste the teas one by one. All of them were great.
The teas in this room alone were worth several villas.
Olivia noticed that the candle was about to burn out. So, she went to
look for some more. She was curious to see what type of aromatic
items Mason had in his collection.
She opened one of the drawers and saw some scrolls. She
accidentally dropped one. It was a drawer that stored pictures, not
She felt a little guilty as she had invaded Mason’s privacy.
Olivia was about to pick it up, but the scroll was already unfurled.
It was a black-and-white picture of a woman. Could it be Mason’s first
Olivia crouched down to pick it up. Suddenly, she felt like something
The woman was sitting on a cherry tree. The smiling face wast
identical to the one she saw in a photo!
The scroll was yellow with age. It was clear that it wasn’t the product
of this time. It should have been around for a few decades.
The woman in the picture was Ms. Nat.
Olivia suddenly recalled that Mason said that her eyes looked like
Olivia looked like Ms. Nat, but her face was concealed under her
mask. Only her eyes were exposed.
Olivia was flustered. Mason knew Ms. Nat. What was the story
Were they friends or foes?
Mason was a man with an incredibly distinguished status. Olivial
didn’t dare to reveal her identity to him before she knew the
relationship between them.
She quickly picked up the scroll and put it back.
Then, she lit a calming candle and brewed another pot of tea. Shel was able to collect herself after that.
But her emotions were quickly stirred up again as she pieced together
the information she had:
If Mason really knew Ms. Nat, he might be able to provide some leads
for her to find her parents.
It seemed like she couldn’t afford to leave the Heaths yet.
Mason returned at night in a bad mood. Tatiana was beside him, talking to him.
Olivia knew it wasn’t the time to talk to him yet. Since he liked her angel food cake, Olivia figured it might help her with a breakthrough. So, she had someone prepare some cherries.
A housekeeper quickly called her over. Mason set his teacup down
when he saw Olivia.
“Come here, Vanessa.”
Olivia set the angel food cake next to Mason.
“Mr. Heath, I made some snacks for you. I figured you probably didn’t get to eat your fill at the banquet. You should eat some.”
Mason wasn’t thinking about the food at all. He held her hand and said, “Vanessa, I need to thank you for saving my life today.”
“No need. I just happened to notice that person looking very suspicious. That’s why I ran over. I didn’t actually know he was going
to do anything to you. All that matters is that you’re okay. You should
eat the cake while it’s fresh.
