Chapter 231 - He really wanted to ask his girlfriend whether she got the key takeaway (2)
Nevertheless, Yan Shuyu failed to get his sense of romance. She was ecstatic as soon as she heard the “few years younger” part. Stroking her own cheek, she asked happily, “Do you really think that I look younger and prettier without makeup on?”
Truth was, if it wasn’t for her instant son, she felt that she could totally look like she was still 18 years old without a problem. But it was very conceited for her to think that. It was much more reliable when that came from the boss.
Boss Zhou in the video chat, “……”
He really wanted to ask his girlfriend whether she got the key takeaway. But, looking at her beaming face, he nodded cooperatively and said, “Yes, very pretty. I hope I am the only one who sees this side of you.”
Yan Shuyu, whose confidence had well exceeded what it should be from the praises, naturally agreed to his little request. She nodded without hesitation, “Okay. I promise. Seeing how sincere you were when you groveled.”
Zhou Qinhe, “……”
“No problem.” Yan Shuyu, very pleased, pushed her face close to the camera in an effort to increase the impact from her beauty. Unfortunately, she was not able to keep that up for too long. She started yawning despite her best effort and remembered that she was just trying to get the kids into bed. Standing up, she said, “It’s getting late. We should go to bed. Byee~”
Zhou Qinhe maintained his quiet smile and said, “Sleep tight, Yanyan.”
With the boss’s blessing, Yan Shuyu slept in between two handsome little boys.
That’s right, she showed no comity toward the little boys but took the middle spot on the bed.
Well, alright, she didn’t really do that on purpose. But there were three of them and only one of them could take the middle spot. The two kids who had been courteous to each other this entire time suddenly became very persistent on this point and neither one would back down.
After a few seconds of deadlock, Yan Shuyu finally yawned and suggested irresponsibly, “Why don’t I take the middle spot then?”
Surprisingly, as soon as she said that, both Zhang Yuanjia and Zhou Yi nodded in synchrony, “Alright.”
And that’s how she ended up sleeping between the two boys.
Albeit it wasn’t Yan Shuyu’s original intention, but she adapted to it very well. With her son snuggled up against her tightly on her right and the little male lead snuggled up to her also with a look of trust on his face, the two little bodies worked like two super-efficient heaters and kept Yan Shuyu very warm the entire night. After a good night's sleep, she was very reluctant to leave the bed after she woke up.
She wanted to stay in bed for longer, but unfortunately, Zhang Yuanjia and Zhou Yi would not work with her on that one.
Zhang Yuanjia woke up per his biological clock. He was going to get up and get ready by himself just like he normally does, but after he rolled over, he recalled that his little buddy had stayed over at his place last night and was sleeping on the other side of his mother. He worried that he’d wake up, so he laid back down stiffly before he laid there and quietly waited for his mother and his little buddy to wake up.
He didn’t have to wait too long before Yan Shuyu also woke up on her own. She had just stretched comfortably when she heard her son eagerly asking her, “Mom? Are you awake? Is Xiao Yi awake?”
Yan Shuyu, who wanted to stay in bed for longer, kept her eyes closely shut pretending that she was still asleep. Unexpectedly, Zhou Yi, lying on her left side, had also awoke. Hearing his little buddy’s voice, he also said softly, “Yuanbao, I am awake too.”
As the two children had already started talking to each other, it no longer mattered whether Yan Shuyu feigned sleeping or not. Zhang Yuanjia asked softly, “Do you want to get up, Xiao Yi? I can take you to get freshened up.”
Zhou Yi was tempted but asked considerately, “Would we wake up Aunty Yan though?”
Zhang Yuanjia chuckled and said, “Don’t worry about it. Mom’s already awake. She’s just pretending that she’s still asleep.”
Yan Shuyu, “…..”
That’s her own son alright. Yan Shuyu, being called out, rolled over, her arms around the pillow and her eyes squinting, said, “Okay, you two can get up if you want. You can open up the curtains as well. As long as you don’t bother me, you two can do whatever you want.”
