– In C City –
When Shen Mingxi walked into his house with a thermal bottle, Tiantian ran toward him, saying, “Uncle Shen, you’re back . ”
“Yeah, have you eaten, Tiantian?”
“No . ”
“Huh? The housemaid I hired didn’t cook supper for you?”
“Yeah, she did . ”
“Why didn’t you eat then? You don’t like what she made?” Shen Mingxi asked .
“It’s not that . ” Tiantian shook her head .
Before he asked, she continued, “I wanted to wait for you and eat it with you . ”
“Didn’t I tell you not to wait for me? I worked late today . ”
“But I have no appetite when you’re not home . ”
“Okay . Now let’s eat together, okay?”
“Okay . ” Tiantian smiled happily .
“Fang, please reheat this for me . ” Shen Mingxi handed the thermal bottle to Fang, a well-trained housemaid recommended by a home service firm; she was very good at cooking and taking care of children .
As a man, Shen Mingxi found it very inconvenient to take care of Tiantian by himself; besides, he didn’t have enough time and energy to do that .
It was why he hired a housemaid . Read more chapters at Listnovel . com
But it seemed Tiantian didn’t like her; so long as Shen Mingxi was home, she would cling to him .
She even wanted him to watch her when she slept; she felt very insecure .
“Uncle Shen, what’s this? Some delicious food?”
“Yeah . ”
“It’s pork bone soup… It’s delicious . ”
“Whoa . Uncle Shen, where did you buy it?” looking at the thermal bottle in the housemaid’s hand, Tiantian asked .
“A friend gave it to me,” Shen Mingxi said casually .
“Who gave it to you?” Tiantian insisted to get to the bottom of it .
“Um…” Shen Mingxi hesitated, wondering if he should tell her the truth and how she would react to it .
“Did Auntie Wei Ying give it to you?” Tiantian asked .
“How did you know?” Shen Mingxi looked at the kid in surprise .
“Because she cares for you the most… She’s been brownnosing you,” said Tiantian .
Shen Mingxi squatted and pulled her into his arms before explaining to her patiently, “Tiantian, listen to me . Brownnosing is a negative word and not fitting in this conversation . ”
He thought the kid was too young to know the true meaning of the word and had used it by mistake .
But Tiantian looked at him calmly and said, “I know brownnosing is a bad word . ”
Shen Mingxi was surprised .
“But Auntie Wei Ying is scheming on you, so she’s been brownnosing you . ”
Shen Mingxi: “…”
“Uncle Shen, I don’t like Auntie Wei Ying . Can you not… be friends with her?”
“Tiantian, tell me why you don’t like her . ”
“She’s very mean . She used to yell at Mom and me and bully us… She’s a bad woman . ”
Shen Mingxi suddenly remembered Wei Ying had indeed done many things to hurt Huo Yanyan and her daughter due to her obsession with him .
But it was long, long ago; the current Wei Ying was no longer the previous aggressive and unreasonable woman .
She had completely changed .
“Tiantian, listen to me . Auntie Wei Ying is not what she used to be… She has realized her mistakes . ”
“But she won’t like me, Uncle Shen…”
“Why do you think she won’t like you?” Shen Mingxi found Tiantian’s words tonight quite astonishing .
