For Calvin, it might be a few hundred thousand dollars. But for Lillian, it was life-saving money.
Rosalie took out her phone and called Calvin, but no one answered. She gritted her teeth and went to Calvin’s ward in Central Hospital, but the ward was empty. The news she received from the nurse was that Calvin had completed the discharge procedures that afternoon.
Rosalie wondered where she could find Calvin.
Rosalie kept thinking if Calvin could be found at the Gunner residence or at his own private mansion.
Rosalie remembered that Calvin mentioned before how often he lived in his private mansion and that there had been gossip about the address of his private mansion, which she could find online.
After all, Calvin was the star of the entertainment industry. Many people knew where his private mansion was, but it was not easy for some people to get in because of the world’s top security systems and there were many security guards. Rosalie took a taxi and reported the address of Calvin’s mansion to the driver.
The driver immediately advised, “Are you going to try your luck at Mr. Gunner’s mansion? Well, you will only be stopped outside. How can ordinary people get in there? I advise you not to take your chances.”
Rosalie said indifferently, “Just go.”
On the way, while driving, the driver said that his colleagues had driven a few women to the mansion before. The security guards over there had called the cops on them for trying to sneak into the mansion, and then all of them had been arrested.
“These days, there are always women who want to try their luck and think that they can stop working hard once they marry into a rich family. But don’t you think it’s going to be hard, especially since the man is Mr. Gunner? In the entertainment industry alone, there are so many beautiful women who want to get close to him. Ordinary people cannot compete with them.” It was obvious that the driver regarded Rosalie as one of the admirers of Calvin.
Rosalie didn’t explain. At this moment, she was only thinking about Lillian.
For the first time, Rosalie needed money so badly. And now, Calvin was the only one who could come up with such a large sum of money.
Perhaps it was only Calvin who would be willing to lend Rosalie such a large sum of money.
Rosalie sat in the car nervously. When she arrived at her destination, she paid the taxi fare and got out of the vehicle quickly.
The iron gate of the mansion was closed. The security guard came forward to greet Rosalie.
“I want to see Mr. Calvin Gunner. It’s urgent,” Rosalie said hurriedly.
“Sorry, you can’t meet Mr. Gunner without a reservation. Just leave. I’ll have to report you for harassment if you trespass.” The security guard looked at Rosalie with disdain.
After all, the guard had seen a lot of women who came here just to get close to Calvin.
“This is really urgent!” Rosalie said. She could tell from the security guard’s words that Calvin was around. “Tell him that Rosalie is here and has something to tell him. And he will definitely meet me!”
The security guard did not budge. If Rosalie was just that kind of woman who wanted to get closer to Calvin, then he would be scolded if he made the call.
Rosalie could only continue dialing Calvin’s number again, but the line was busy no matter how many times she called.
At this moment, a sedan suddenly drove over. Fiona got out of the car, and her eyes flashed with surprise when she saw Rosalie. She stepped forward and asked, “Rosalie, why are you here?”
Rosalie took a deep breath and said to Fiona, “I want to meet Calvin. I have a friend who is seriously injured in the ICU ward now. I want to ask him for help. Could you take me in and let me meet Calvin if possible?”
Despite knowing that they had been quarreling recently and the other party wouldn’t agree at all, Lillian wanted to give it a try anyway.
Sure enough, as she expected, Fiona flashed a troubled look and said, “I can’t help you. You know that you parted on bad terms with Calvin today. Calvin is angry. If I take you in, Calvin will be mad at me. Sorry, I can’t help you.”
As Fiona said that, she turned around and returned to the car. The iron gate slowly opened, and the car drove in. Fiona sat inside the car and looked at Rosalie who was standing outside and looking anguished through the window. She couldn’t help but smile smugly.
She wouldn’t let Rosalie meet Calvin so easily. She was waiting for the gap between them to get wider and wider.
Rosalie watched bitterly as Fiona’s car slowly drove into the mansion, and the iron gate slowly closed in front of her.
Rosalie thought, ‘Wait!
I have to wait!
Perhaps I can only meet Calvin when he comes out of the mansion.”
Looking at the security guard beside her, Rosalie said, “I won’t leave here, but I won’t do anything else either. The road outside this mansion should be a public road. I’ll just stand here. If you still want to call the police, you can go ahead.”
The security guard hesitated for a moment and didn’t say anything more. He turned back to where he came from. After all, he had already known that Rosalie knew Fiona and Calvin when he saw Rosalie conversing with Fiona.
Before figuring out what kind of relationship Rosalie and Calvin had, the security guard didn’t want to offend them easily.
Rosalie stood there. The sky was already dark, and even the moon seemed to be covered with a layer of black veil.
Rosalie looked up at the moon in a daze.
That night in the mountain with Calvin, she, who was still a child, had also looked at the moon in the sky like this. She was not afraid during the day, but at night, she was scared and couldn’t fall asleep.
He said to her in a gentle voice, “Don’t be afraid. I won’t sleep. I will protect you.”
Indeed, as he had promised, he had protected her and saved her life, but why did they end up like this?
At that moment, she wanted his help the most.
“Cal, please help Lillian!” Rosalie kept shouting in her heart. She pressed her lips tightly and dialed Calvin’s phone number again.
“Pick up! Pick up!” She was anxious. She had thought that she had become strong after experiencing so many things, but now it turned out that there were still too many things that would leave her powerless.
