Chapter 1420 I will listen to you.
He was indirectly telling her that he was no longer a child.
Perhaps, in her eyes, he was still the little devilish lad trotting behind her!
However, he was a grown man now and even was familiar with the rules and games of society.
“That doesn’t mean you can smoke.” She paused before snorting. “No more smoking, yeah?”
He was stunned.
She cooed, “Be good and listen to me, okay? I don’t like Xiao Jie smoking!”
Smiling slightly and with his chin propped in his palms, he looked pensively at her and said, “All right.”
His meekness had none of his usual defiance.
“I’ll listen to you.”
Since she did not like him smoking, he would not smoke. He would no longer do that if she did not like it.
He would rather stay as the brother that she liked.
“Now, that’s a good boy!” She was satisfied with his answer and pinched his face lovingly.
He was captivated more than ever by her smile.
He liked the way she smiled—so gentle and charming. Her ethereal demeanor was a face that came straight out of a painting.
He would not mind the time stopping here and now as he immersed in her charm. Heck, he would not get tired of her smile for even a century.
It started to pour outside the window.
He sent her back to Xiangti Walk. Just as she turned to leave, he returned her the wallet that she had left behind in his car previously before reluctantly giving her a peck on the cheek.
“Sis, can I often look for you in the future?” he asked cautiously with eyes full of anticipation.
She replied matter-of-factly, “Of course! Still, I may not be free when I am working!”
“Oh, right…” Holding the umbrella, her voice was gentle as she stood in the shower. “Xiao Jie, what are you doing now?”
There was no sound from him.
She tilted her head, puzzled over his silence.
After a long, dead silence, he smiled warmly and replied, “Sis, I’m running my business now.”
He gave a vague answer and omitted the part about him being the chief commanding officer of Hurricane Group and holding a huge stack of that enterprise. Neither did he mention the background of the group.
He could not imagine what her reaction would be if he were to confess the entire truth now to her—about him easily commanding a multibillion-dollar arms order, which might lead to hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties.
He was really afraid that she would fear, despise… and even avoid him.
Thus, he hid the truth from her.
She was well surprised to hear that, and then her eyes widened slightly in astonishment. “You’re so good! So young yet you’ve already founded a business!”
“Sis, the rain is getting heavier. You’d better get inside!” The man avoided the topic and hurried her along.
She nodded in agreement, waved, and then entered the house.
Deep in thought, he watched her back fade from his sight before rolling up the car window and looking past his shoulder. “Back to the office.”
“Understand, Master Gong.”
He had a complex look while he sat at the back as the car sped.
Why did his sister hide the matter regarding the son’s biological father from him?
In reality, he knew that her son was Mu Yazhe’s offspring. When he first found out about this, he was surprised but did not take it to heart.
However, when he realized that Youyou was her son, which made him his nephew, he wondered about the relationship between that man and his sister.
