He slowly turned around to look at George. He frowned and said, “Is this any of your business?”
“You are a hacker?” George pursed his lips and said, “And it looks like you are the leading figure in the hacking field. So, that opponent I met before, that was you?”
Alden shoved his laptop into the crack in the balcony cabinet and stood up. He said, “Yes, that was me. Why didn’t you accept my challenge?”
George paused for a second before he said, “I have little interest in hacking, and you should stop contacting other hackers, it’s not safe.”
There was a faint sneer on Alden’s face.
If he really had no interest in hacking, he would not have registered an account on the dark web. Besides, George’s hacking abilities were clearly exemplary.
“I don’t know what you are trying to do by forming a hacker team, but I’m just offering you some friendly warning about this business. It’s best to stay out of it,” George went on and said. He remembered every word Daddy had said to him. Therefore, despite his interest in hacking, he did not really use his hacking skills to do anything
“I’m not forming any hacker team. You saw it wrong.” Alden said nonchalantly. “This is just a virtual game. Don’t tell Mummy.”
George glanced at him and said nothing more.
Breakfast was promptly prepared. Adina brought out five plates of pasta and mushroom soups. She was about to call the kids over for breakfast. Then, she was dumbfounded.
“Hal, you…” Her mouth opened wide as she stared at Harold. “What happened to you?”
Harold did not find anything odd about his appearance. He lifted the hem of his dress and twirled around in a circle. “This is the dress Mel picked for me. She did my makeup too. What do you think? Do I look pretty?”
Adina stared at him and said reluctantly, “Yes, you look pretty.”
Alden lit a candle for him in his mind.
Melody liked to dress up and put makeup on Barbie dolls. From now on, Harold had become a Barbie doll. George could not stand to look at him anymore. He said in a low voice, “Go and remove your makeup now, otherwise, I will lose my appetite.”
“Come on. Hal. I will remove your makeup for you.” Adina took Harold’s hand and went to the bathroom.
Harold was still proud of his appearance, but after seeing himself in the bathroom mirror, he was so terrified that his voice broke. “Mel, your makeup skills are bad. You have turned me into a ghost!”
Melody lowered her head and stared at her fingers with a wounded expression. “But I think you look pretty.”
Alden rubbed his sister’s head. “You will get better with a little more practice. I’m sure our brother will be happy to help you.”
This was the second time Alden had addressed Harold as their brother, but he had wielded the word as a weapon to entrap him.
Harold was well aware that it was a trap, yet he still walked into it obediently. “Mel, let’s not use such a bright color for the eyeshadow, okay?”
Melody squinted her eyes happily. “I will use white next
That would make him look more like a ghost, would it
Harold’s smile became stiff for a second. “Alright now. Let’s have breakfast. I’ll take you to the amusement park after breakfast.”
When they heard Adina, the kids took their seats
obediently and ate their pastas. They quickly finished their pastas and mushroom soups.
After they did the dishes, it was only 9:30 a.m. Adina got in the car with her four children and drove to the biggest amusement park in Sea City. Meanwhile , Duke, who was getting ready for a meeting, got a call from Mr. Brown. “We have a problem, sir. Young Master George and Young Master Harold have run away from home together, bringing their suitcases with them.”
