“Don’t be scared; I’m around. You don’t have to worry!”
The woman tossed and turned in bed all night. She even put her back to him while she wept in secret under the blankets. His heart ached at the sight of her like this and from hearing her muffled sobs.
He was also worried about the safety of their kids.
Earlier, he had repeatedly asked Youyou if he needed additional men to participate in the plan.
The boy simply waved his hand like a king and casually replied, “No need! Daddy’s men aren’t up to par! All daddy needs to do is protect mommy!”
In other words, he was telling him that his men were well-trained.
These words indubitably gave him a shot of confidence in his son.
Hence, his main task now was to stay by her side and accompany her without any reservations.
This was what he had promised his son; thus, he had to keep it.
The woman shut her eyes in fear as her breathing quickened slightly.
An imperceptible tear streak appeared from the corner of her eye under the light.
“I lost my family and was left with nothing when I was nine. I’ve already experienced the pain of losing my loved ones once, so I can’t afford to lose the twins this time!”
The man’s brows slightly furrowed.
He might be unable to understand her uneasiness and worries from a mother’s point of view, but as a father, he was equally anxious and worried.
It was just that he needed to handle this matter calmly.
His priority was to stabilize her emotions.
“Shishi.” He lightly called her name as he bowed his head.
She lifted her gaze, only to hear him say, “Let’s get married once the two lads are back.”
“Let’s get married and be together forever, okay?”
She raised her head in astonishment, apparently somewhat shocked by his words.
Was this considered… a marriage proposal?
Gently and lovingly, he held her hand and kissed her fingertips. “I’ve thought about it; I don’t wish to push back our marriage anymore. After this matter is over, let’s get married and be together for all our lives.”
Her eyes opened dazedly. For a second, a myriad of emotions coursed through her. She found it a little hard to believe what she had just heard.
“Promise me, mm? Don’t let your thoughts run wild.”
Her silence lingered.
The man could not help feeling a little nervous all of a sudden.
“What’s the matter?”
He turned her around by her shoulders and regarded her with a probing gaze. “Are you unwilling?”
She shook her head.
“I just can’t believe that there will be such a day.”
“Believe me; there will be.” With a light peck on her forehead, he promised, “There will be!”
In the old, underground warehouse.
Youyou, who was all along a clean freak, lightly dusted his sleeves. His slim face had a calm expression sans fear.
The soldiers outside the cage stared at him, flabbergasted.
The child was way too calm.
He looked indifferent and expressionless.
If it were other children, they would surely be wailing in fear by now.
“Hey, kiddo; I can tell that you’re quite a clean freak!” A man could not resist teasing him.
Their vigilance naturally relaxed a little from having to guard two children.
The boy shot them a cool glance and asked faintly, “What time is it?”
“Why do you ask about the time for no reason? It’s 12 AM now!”
His sudden reply shocked them, though. “Surely, it’s not 12 AM. It should be 11:30 PM now, shouldn’t it?”
