As the secretary, he could only follow the CEO's orders. Shaking his head, the secretary told himself not to think too much into what had transpired.

But he had to contact the informant once again, because he had asked him to get away.

After dinner, Kent went back after staying in Melinda's place for a while. Melinda was recuperating well and had made improvements in her health. She went to bed after writing a chapter.

As for Kent, who had just gotten back home, his day wasn't ending as well as he thought it would. When he got home, the door was wide open. Only a few people had the key to his house. He was sure that his parents must have come since they were the only people brave enough to come to his house unannounced.

As expected, Kent came into the house and saw his parents sitting on the sofa. Each of them had a cup of tea, with nuts piled on a small plate for themselves. They were engrossed on a program they were watching on TV.

"Dad, Mom, why are you here?"

Kent changed his shoes and walked towards them. He checked his phone, but there was no call. It seemed that his parents hadn't called him at all.

"Since you never come home to visit us, we may as well take the mountain to Mohamed and decided to visit you instead. Why are you always so busy with your work that you have no time to visit even your family? Have you had dinner yet?" Kent's mother, Janet, asked with dissatisfaction.

Her son had always been busy as soon as he grew up, and didn't go home often. He had even taken the habit of working late into the night; how could he take care of himself with such a crazy schedule? He needed a girlfriend to keep him company and take care of his needs.

"I have already eaten," said Kent, not wanting to agitate his mother further.

He walked to the sofa and sat across from his parents. He had already gotten used to his mother's nagging and her impromptu appearances at his apartment. He could almost guess exactly what she was thinking.

"Son, are you just coming back from work at this time?" Janet asked tentatively.

Kent's father seemed to be concentrating on the TV, because that was where his eyes were looking, although all his mind was focused on the conversation between his son and wife.


"Son, it's time for you to get a girlfriend. You can't only work all day long. How about dating someone after work?" asked Janet

She had come to visit her son this time with a very specific agenda. She wanted to discuss the direction in which Kent's life was taking. Janet was worried that her son's age mates back in their hometown all had children who were big enough to run around.

"Mom, it's still too early for me to get married. I'm not in a hurry."

He knew that all his mother cared about was marriage. In the past few years, he had always been in love with Melinda, so he had never dated any other girl. His mother on the other hand had been so worried that she had even begun to question his sexual orientation. She had once accosted him and repeatedly made him promise that he was straight before she could let him go.

But shortly after, she had begun to urge him to get married every chance she got.

"You're in your late 20s. You're old enough. Do you remember your primary school classmates?" Janet began her usual train of rants insinuating that someone's child was already going to school and Kent should bring his girlfriend home to introduce the new girl to her and his father and get married soon.

"Your father and I are still young. If you have a child now, we can help to look after him; however, when we get old in the future, you can only look after him by yourselves. You don't know anything, and you can't take good care of a child..." Janet reiterated her exhortation once again.
