Youyou held his head up in his hand as he looked at her quietly .
“Mommy,” he suddenly said .
The boy wanted to continue but stopped himself . In the end, he did not say anything else .
“I just wanted to call you! It’s been so many days; I’ve missed you . ”
Warmth whelmed his mother’s heart, and she kneeled to give him a gentle kiss on his glabella .
“I missed you, too . ”
“You said so, but you didn’t return home earlier . ” He huffed indignantly before returning the kiss on her cheek .
Seeing his indignant yet lovable expression, the woman smiled with a heart full of adoration .
She loved seeing such a cute expression on her son . He was like a lovable fairy .
Halfway through, the boy insisted on helping her with the dishes . She refused him .
Although the water was hot, it was in the middle of winter, and her heart could not bear to watch him endure housework . Therefore, she was adamant on washing the dishes alone .
The boy could only let her be .
“Mommy’s hands are so pretty . My heart will ache if your hands turn rough after washing so many dishes . ”
“My heart hurts, too, when my son washes the dishes . ”
“Hmph . Alright . I know you love me!”
Just as they were done, Little Yichen returned home . She accompanied her boys in watching TV before coaxing them to bed .
In the dead of the night .
After showering, Yun Shishi lay in bed . However, she could not fall asleep no matter how much she tossed and turned .
Outside, the night was tranquil, but the quieter it was, the more unsettled she felt .
Would he come back tonight?
She had not given him a call yet after returning to the capital .
It felt as if she and the man were having a cold war .
She closed her eyes, suddenly feeling upset .
At around midnight, the roaring sound of a car’s engine was heard from afar .
Shortly after, the engine was switched off in the garage .
Her chest tightened at that moment .
This felt like déjà vu .
This was similar to that night from seven years ago . She had been arranged to wait quietly for his arrival in a villa by the sea .
She had also heard the car’s engine turning off as it was parked in front of the villa and the sound of his heavy footsteps coming closer and closer .
She had been so restless then, not knowing what kind of man would appear in front of her .
The mood now was just as nerve-racking .
The woman suddenly heard the door being pushed open, accompanied by slight movements . It seemed that he had walked into the living room and was resting on the couch .
She was feeling even more unsettled as each second went by like a century .
He was home .
At this time, she should be opening the bedroom door ecstatically to welcome his return, but since their unhappy departure previously, it was now a little awkward .
She hid beneath the covers .
This is how tiring it feels to be in a cold war with someone, huh .
She wanted to hug him tightly and share all her inner thoughts, but she did not dare to do so .
Mu Yazhe did not seem to know about her return . After sitting in the living room for a while, he went into the dining room and poured a cup of water to drink .
Despite how soundproofed their walls were, she could still hear his footsteps in the living room amid the tranquility .
Immediately after, she heard him walking toward their bedroom .
Her heart was hanging in the air .
The door was suddenly opened with a click .
The man was astonished when he saw the lump in the bed . She’s back!
Why didn’t she tell me?
The woman clenched her lips tightly and stayed hidden under the covers . Afraid to lift her head to look, she decided to feign sleep .
She did not know how to face him .
Therefore, she feigned sleep to avoid an awkward situation .
