Chapter 1955: Boss may be unable to show up.
Half a beat, the mother obediently carried her older son to the sofa to sit as was told.
It took Youyou no longer than ten minutes to have everything neatly packed into the luggage.
“Whew! Finally done!”
He gently wiped the beads of perspiration on his forehead with a handkerchief and looked up, only to find his mother and older brother staring at him with starry eyes and a reverent expression respectively.
His lips twitched as he looked back at them, exasperated.
“What is it?!”
“How virtuous my younger son is! Whoever marries you in the future is really fortunate!” The woman lauded herself for raising such a perfect son.
Mu Yichen, on the other hand, stared at his twin, awe-struck.
“Lil’ bro, if I were born a female, I’d definitely woo you into becoming my wife.”
“Get lost!” The younger one cast his brother a disdainful look. “Whoever marries you is an unlucky person.”
“Why?!” he wailed, feeling aggrieved. “Have I got no merits at all?”
“You’re such an outstanding fellow that I’m unworthy of you.”
Just as the trio was playfully bickering, the doorbell rang.
“Daddy’s back!” The older one raised his brow in excitement.
The younger one, meanwhile, found it strange. As he made his way to the door, he muttered under his breath, “Did daddy forget his keys?”
When he opened the door, he saw a man standing there. The latter looked surprised to find himself face-to-face with a boy, who was openly studying him with glistening eyes, the moment he looked down.
“Hello, boy!” greeted Qin Zhou with a smile.
His initial surprise faded quickly as he realized that the boy, who was a carbon copy of his twin brother, was likely Mu Yazhe’s younger son.
Although they had never met before, one look was enough for him to know who the lad before him was.
Mu Yichen walked to his twin’s side and stared curiously at the man, having no idea who the visitor was despite the guy knowing him.
“Who are you?” He appeared to be wary as he posed this question, treating the man entirely as a weirdo with ill-intentions.
The top agent broke into a wry laugh. “I’m looking for your mother.”
“Oh. You’re mommy’s manager!” That was the conclusion the younger twin derived after sizing up the adult.
He was surprised to hear that. “Eh? How did you know that?”
“I recognized your voice.”
The boy was occasionally around when his mother’s manager called to inform her of the schedule.
With his high sensitivity to sound, he would not forget what he heard once. This was why he could guess the identity of the man as soon as he spoke.
“What a smart kiddo.”
His mother was surprised to see her manager when he opened the door wider to usher the visitor in. “What brought you here?”
“I’m here on boss’s order to pick you up.”
Yun Shishi hummed in acknowledgment before she was hit by a sudden realization. Feeling puzzled, she asked, “Where is he, then? Is he still at work?”
“The air tickets for the 1-PM flight should’ve already been booked. Is he going straight to the airport?”
She got up off the sofa and walked toward him.
All of a sudden, he became somewhat hesitant to give her a reply. “B-Boss… might be unable to make it to Sea City…”
As he spoke, he carefully studied his artist’s expression.
The woman froze. “Is he not going there anymore? Why?”
“He’s probably busy with work. I was about to get on the plane when I received a call from him, telling me to pick you up myself and go to the venue with you. That’s why I rushed over.”
“Is he still busy with work?”
