The boy lifted his head to glance at her before plunging into her embrace and encircling his arms around her waist. “Mommy, I really love you. I’m willing to do anything for your happiness.”
Yun Shishi gave a sigh inwardly; her heart became filled with mixed emotions after hearing her precious son’s touching declaration of love.
She did not know whether she should be moved or worried.
She caressed his face gently. “Mommy loves you, too—loves you as much as life itself.”
He gazed at her quietly and proceeded cautiously. “Does that mean that no matter what I become, mommy will still love me?”
“Eh! No matter what, mommy will still love you.”
“That is good enough!” He smiled in contentment and held tightly to her. “How is Little Yichen? Is he better now?”
“He is much better now. That fellow has a strong constitution and is already being active now.”
However, just to be safe, the couple decided not to bring him along. The older twin was still upset because of this.
The three decided to return to the capital once they had their lunch.
Li Ru prepared a spread for them and even slaughtered a young rooster.
The free-range chicken meat was tender and fresh.
By the time the mother-son pair reappeared in the hall, Mu Yazhe was already seated at the dining table.
Their host and her two children fidgeted uneasily in their seats and would secretly check out the man’s handsome but icy side-profile from time to time.
As the little girl cautiously sized up the man, she was actually a little envious of Youyou.
His father is so good-looking.
The man sat expressionlessly on the bench with his back ramrod straight. His haughty and noble presence was a stark contrast with the rundown and lowly environment he was in right now; the place could hardly contain his unspeakable charisma.
Her mother looked at the man and had to acknowledge that life was not fair at times!
Some people were favored by the heavens.
The two kids were somewhat restrained by his presence after he took his seat. When he raised his hand to take a sip of tea, Lingling dared not do the same until he put down the cup. Staring intently at him, she carefully picked up her cup and drank a mouthful.
Yun Shishi and her son sat down as well. However, as the man remained quiet and showed no intention to start the meal, the rest dared not touch their chopsticks as well.
The lady saw their looks and knew that the man had made them with jittery. Hence, she turned to him and said, “You’ve scared the two kids!”
Her words alerted him to his behavior.
Preoccupied with his thoughts, upon her timely reminder, he scanned the faces of their host and her children and saw their chary looks.
His woman said smilingly, “Sister Li, all the children are hungry now. Let’s not wait anymore and start eating. We don’t wish the dishes to turn cold!”
The woman replied respectfully, “Master Mu doesn’t seem pleased with the meal. Is he used to good food and unable to accommodate this simple countryside fare?”
Her family was used to simple meals, and for this special occasion, she had splurged a fair bit, so she was most worried that it was not to their taste.
