Her impression of this man was overbearing and cold.
At the moment, though, there was none of that sharp aura and indifference. The tenderness in his eyes when he bowed his head to regard his son was almost overflowing.
It was truly mesmerizing when he smiled.
The slight curl of his sexy, thin lips was captivating.
A hint of disappointment abruptly surged in Lingling’s heart as she felt utterly envious at the sight.
All of a sudden, a little hand holding chopsticks delivered some vegetables to her bowl.
She looked up to find Youyou smiling. “You can’t just eat meat; you should eat more vegetables.”
His smile warmed her heart.
She nodded. “Mm!”
A swarm of people was outside the Zhao family’s house now.
Many were curious about the background of this young couple.
After the meal and chatting for a while, Mu Yazhe decided to make a move.
Li Ru politely urged them to stay. “Won’t you stay awhile longer?”
The man answered, “We’ll not waste any more of your time.”
“Nothing like that at all!” she insisted.
“Sister Li, we still have another child waiting at home!” Yun Shishi smilingly said. Only after an exchange of a few more words did the other nod.
Before they left, she pulled the boy back to stuff the envelope in his hand.
“I can’t accept so much money, boy! Return it to your parents and tell them I can’t accept it!”
Being a simple and genuine person, the sight of the seven-digit check when she took it out of the envelope instantly shocked her, such that she felt that this envelope was scalding hot!
She had never seen a fraction of the figure stated on the check in her entire, poor life!
Youyou pushed her hand back, declining, “Auntie, keep it! Accept this token of appreciation from daddy!”
“Thank you, auntie. I’m also very sorry for what happened this time! Uncle is no longer around, so I’ll shoulder the responsibility of taking care of your family!” he added gratefully.
Feeling warmed and touched by his words, tears gushed out from her eyes and her lips quivered but she no longer said another word.
When they left, the woman followed them for a while as her daughter, at her side, waved incessantly at Youyou.
The boy smiled and waved at them as he lay before the window and looked out.
He then returned to his seat and held his mother’s arm. Contentment and expectations spread on his face.
How nice is it!
I’m finally going home!
There seemed to be a bright and warm beam of sunlight in his heart at that moment.
Back home, Little Yichen, who heard the car’s horn, stood at the gate of the villa on his tiptoes as he looked out.
The car soon came to a halt at the entrance.
Upon seeing his younger brother, he excitedly pounced on him the instant the other alighted from the car and hugged him tightly!
The older twin hugged his brother so tightly it was as if he had just recovered a precious treasure and were afraid of losing it again. Everything seemed like a dream!
Only when he felt his brother’s warmth did he believe that this was not a dream!
“Youyou, you’re home! I… I’ve been waiting for you!”
Guilt consumed his heart after failing to hold out and arrive timely with the rescue team!
The thought of his brother encountering danger because of him left him in trepidation.
