“Aren’t you scared of losing the bait?”
“Pff, don’t say unlucky stuff like that . I’m not going to lose the bait, you’re very attractive . ”
Qiao Fei didn’t know what to say .
“Please? Fei? Just this once?” Lu Yan kept pestering him .
Outside the cabin was Lu Yan’s subordinates .
“What’s going on in there? Our boss is actually playing coy with Mr . Qiao?” someone asked .
“Does she want Qiao Fei to make her dumplings again?”
“Of course not . I listened in, it seems like… She wants Mr . Qiao to seduce an old guy . ”
“Uh… That’s so scary . ”
“Mhm, it seems to be connected to her sister . The old guy is some important figure in Australia that is in charge of documenting all the islands…”
“So that’s what it is . Poor Mr . Qiao . Is she really willing to do that?”
“I think she’s just using it as a cover, she’s not asking him to really seduce the guy…”
“Okay, okay . We’ll never understand their world . ”
– In China, at South Hill Manor –
Qin Chu took the last flight out of C City to Australia . He couldn’t wait any longer .
In the middle of the night, Qin Ning felt that it was too hot and couldn’t fall asleep . She went downstairs, had a cup of coffee, and texted Tang Chuan .
“Ning-Ning, why are you still up?”
“I can’t sleep . ”
“Hehe, is it because you miss me?”
“You’re being shameless again . ”
“But I really miss you, when are you moving back?”
“Did I agree that I’m moving back?”
“Don’t be like that… It really felt like home the few days that you lived with me . ”
“Don’t kid me, I’m not a housekeeper . I don’t know how to clean, do laundry, or cook . The most I can do is make you instant noodles,” Qin Ning laughed .
“Instant noodles made by you are the most delicious thing in the world . ”
“Your tongue is slick . ”
“I’m being serious, come back… Don’t move away after, living together would be great . ”
“You’re trying to take advantage of me again . ”
“Of course . Any man would have inappropriate thoughts when they see the woman they love . If you keep that up, I’m going to die from frustration . ”
“Then die . ”
“If I die, you’ll be a widow…”
“Don’t joke around like that . ”
When Qin Ning sent that, she heard footsteps coming down the stairs .
She put down her phone, looked up, and saw that it was Pudding .
“Pudding, look at the time . You should be sleeping,” Qin Ning was a little surprised .
“Auntie, where is my daddy?”
“Your daddy…” Qin Ning didn’t have the heart to tell her the truth .
Qin Chu was just released from the hospital and left right after . That might make the child feel very unsafe and abandoned .
“I just went to his room . There was no one inside . It’s clean, his phone and razor are both missing . Where is my daddy? Did he go somewhere far away?”
Pudding calmly asked .
The child really thought about everything . She discovered very small details .
“Mhm, Pudding, come here . Auntie will tell you about it,” Qin Ning waved and called over Pudding .
Pudding was in a white cotton nightgown . Her long hair fell behind her . She was young but she was already stunningly beautiful .
“Your daddy did go far away . He said not to worry, when he comes back, he’ll be with your mommy . ”
“I knew that he went to rescue mommy . ”
“Why aren’t you sleeping? Look at the time…”
“I asked Handsome Su to video chat . ”
“You what? It’s too late . ”
“I need to talk to him about something,” Pudding said in a serious tone .
At that moment, Pudding’s phone rang . It was a video chat invitation from Su Yu .
