“Great . That’s excellent… Child, you must take good care of yourself . ”
“Yeah . I will . Dad, you must take care of yourself, too . ”
“I’m fine . Yan and I have gotten used to our situations . But you… must be more careful after the incident in Australia . ”
“I will . ”
“How are Pudding and Little Bean? Are they taller now?”
“Yeah . Little Bean likes to eat sweet stuff, but Pudding likes to have milk and so is a bit taller than her sister,” Huo Mian said with a smile .
“I did a physical check on them . Little Bean is a bit overweight; you must make her eat more vegetables . ”
“Ha . It’s impossible . Each time when I tried to get her to eat vegetables, she’d say she’s not a bunny so why must she eat vegetables . ” Huo Mian smiled through her tears .
Hearing her words, Professor Lu had a glimmer of love in his eyes .
Whenever he thought of his twin granddaughters, he felt warm inside as if everything else in the world lost its appeal .
“You must keep Yan in control when she’s there . Don’t let her mess around,” the professor instructed .
“She won’t . Yan’s so smart; I’m sure she can protect herself . ”
“I’m not worried about her; I’m afraid she might hurt innocent people… Ever since she was little, bedlam breaks wherever she goes . ”
“Hahaha…” Huo Mian laughed, no longer feeling melancholic .
Lu Yan pouted in a huff . “Dad, you dissed me again?”
“I was stating the facts…”
“Okay . Stop nagging . I’ll continue the delicious meal with my sister . Bye, old man . ”
“Hey! I’m not finished yet…” Huo Mian didn’t want to end the call .
It was her first talk to her dad on the phone and she felt miraculous and happy .
Huo Mian valued family very much and treasured the only two people related to her by blood in the whole world .
“Sis, the old guy has many enemies… Lots of bad guys want him, so we don’t talk on phone for long . I usually talk to him for no longer than 20 seconds . In fact, I was lenient on you this time and gave you guys more than 30 seconds . If it exceeds 40 seconds, the terrorists could track the source of the callers . You don’t want to put the old man in danger, right?”
“I see…” Huo Mian lowered her eyes in melancholy .
“Don’t be sad . I’ll let you talk to him more often, even though you can say only a few sentences on the phone each time . ”
“Okay . ” Huo Mian nodded .
After lunch, Huo Mian took Lu Yan back to her office .
Lounging on the sofa, Lu Yan played games on a tablet lazily .
She hadn’t had this habit before, but ever since she was with Qiao Fei, she got this bad habit from him .
Whenever she got bored, she’d take out the tablet and play games; they were addictive .
“Yan, do you want to eat fruits? Shall I go and buy you some?”
“Sis, don’t trouble yourself . I don’t want to eat anything now after that big lunch . If it’s fine with you, can you get me a glass of cold water? Thank you . ” Lu Yan smiled sweetly .
Huo Mian stood up and poured a glass of water from the water dispenser .
She handed the water to Lu Yan .
“Yan, how long do you plan to stay here this time?” Huo Mian asked hopefully .
“How long do you want me to stay here?” Lu Yan looked up with a smile in her eyes .
“Will you listen to me and stay as long as I want you to?” Huo Mian chuckled .
