I have taken a bit long to update this time, but many thanks for your understanding! I hope you will enjoy this new chapter, and if you do, please write to me! Thanks in advance!
The following is the teaser:
George sauntered through the train cars towards the end, and as expected, he found Sir William standing in the observation platform of the train, seemingly deep in thought. When George got near, his young master noticed his approach and cast him a glance. After that, the blond haired man remarked with a somber expression, “George, once again, I must thank you for watching out for me all these years.”
George was caught off guard, and he thought why this out of the blue?
Then Albert continued, “I think I now understand why my father worked so hard… he wanted to get over the loss of my mother.”
George began to grasp what was on Sir William’s mind. He must have missed Miss Candice so much that it hurt. Yet George decided not to mention Miss Candice at this point. Instead, he simply agreed, “Sir William, I have thought so too. After all, your late parents had been deeply in love.”
Nodding, Albert added gravely, “I know, even my aunt said that once or twice to me before.”
Having said that, Albert continued staring into a distance with a gloomy expression upon his face. George didn’t make any comment after this however. A while later, Albert uttered, “George, tell me more about my father, especially how he coped with… his loss.”
George hesitated. Madam Elroy had warned those who had known Albert’s true identity not to talk about his parents. If the young heir had questions, let her deal with him.
Since George seemed to be struggling for words, Albert pleaded with sincerity, looking into his dark eyes, “George, I can see why everyone has been keeping it from me, but being the cause of my mother’s death, I have always wanted to know… why my father did not remarry… and he never had time for me…”
With moist in his blue eyes, Sir William’s voice trailed off in agony. George opened and shut his mouth a few times, unable to look him in the face.
