“Hurry, run! The bad guy is going to eat us up!”
As Trevor was tugging at Faye, Asher suddenly grabbed Faye and ran away.
He led his siblings and slipped into the crowd.
“Mommy said we should stay away from this bad guy. Otherwise, he’ll arrest us. We’ll never get to see Mommy again,” he thought to himself.
“Mr. Gulliford, they—”
“They aren’t my children,” Trevor replied grimly as he snapped out of his reverie.
Staring at the kids’ backs, he pulled out his phone to call someone to escort the kids to a safe place.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Gulliford,” Natalie apologized. “They really look like you, so I—”
“Arrange for someone to send them home.”
“Got it, Mr. Gulliford.”
In the break room, Jessica had barely regained her voice when she heard the servers talking outside.

“Mommy, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again,” Asher promised.
“Good. I’ll send you back home now. Oh, remember to keep our relationship a secret. Don’t let anyone find out that I’m your mommy,” Jessica reminded them.
The kids bobbed their heads.
Despite not knowing why she asked them to do so, they would definitely listen to her words.
They were on the twentieth floor, so it was impossible for them to climb down the stairs. Jessica led them to the eighteenth floor carefully before taking the elevator to the first floor.
Monica received Jessica’s call a while ago and was already waiting at Cerulean’s entrance.
Jessica could finally heave a sigh of relief after the kids left with Monica.
She whipped her head around and promptly bumped into a chest.
The familiar scent made her heart skip a beat. Lifting her head, she saw Trevor’s handsome face mere inches away from her.
His brows knitted together as he stared at her with his deep, dark eyes.
“Do you know the children?” he inquired icily.
