Chapter 633 Taken Away by Another Man

Joey took the initiative to pick up Elise’s bag before handing it over. “Here.”

“Thank you.” Elise reached out to retrieve it. Then, upon thinking of something, she said, “By the way, how did you come?”

When Joey heard this, she bit her lower lip and lowered her head. “I’m sorry. Actually, I secretly followed you as that man did.”

“What?” For a moment, Elise was taken aback. “When did you start following me? Why didn’t I notice?”

“After you exposed your identity on TV, many fans said they would stalk you. I was worried that this kind of situation would happen, so I secretly protected you.” Joey’s tone was sincere as she explained earnestly. “As for why you didn’t notice, it may be because you have a lot on your mind right now. I saw that you were constantly in a daze, so I did not dare to relax. It’s a good thing I came in the nick of time.”

 

Elise was at a loss for what to say when Joey had unintentionally hit the nail on the head.

It seemed that before she even realized it, she had been in such a terrible state for the past half month to the point where she didn’t even notice someone with skills as mediocre as Joey following her, let alone those who had ill intentions toward her.

 

Joey mistook Elise’s silence for disgust, so she quickly elaborated, “I just want to protect you. I don’t mean to interfere in your life. So, I’ll be leaving now.”

Elise finally came back to her senses and hurriedly grabbed Joey’s wrist, then replied with a wry smile, “You are my sister, and you even saved me. If I just chase you away, how am I supposed to face Papa in the future?”

“Then, you’re… not angry?” Joey blinked and stared at her in anticipation.

“Why should I be angry that one more person loves me?” Elise exclaimed.

“This is great!” Joey hugged her enthusiastically. “Elise, you have no idea how much I like you. I like you so much! I really do!”

“I know that now.”

It had been a long time since Elise hugged someone—family members included, so she felt gratified as well.
