Zou Bai smiled and teased, “I think you’re the one who’ll never get up early if it doesn’t give you benefits.”
After Meng Yu and Lin Hui found out about Zou Bai and Jiang An’s relationship, coupled with the fact that the two children were Zou Bai’s biological children, their impression of Jiang An changed.
When the sky completely darkened, Jiang An brought the two children down to the main deck and realized that Meng Yu and Lin Hui were much more enthusiastic about her.
The yacht docked, and the two parties said goodbye and parted ways.
Lin Hui had an apartment in Lin City, and Meng Yu insisted on staying there for the night.
In the car, Meng Yu could not help but sigh. “1 really didn’t expect this unusual relationship.”
Lin Hui, who was driving, smiled when he heard this. “If it counts, it counts. Auntie can rest assured.”
When Meng Yu heard Lin Hui’s words, he turned around. “Chen Xiang is really coming back to China?”
Lin Hui shook his head slightly. “How would I know? I don’t know how Auntie got the news.”
Meng Yu said doubtfully, “It wasn’t easy for her to go overseas. Why is she coming back again? Two days ago, 1 asked someone overseas to ask around and said that she’s developing quite well in the overseas entertainment industry. She even took on a new movie. It doesn’t seem like she’s planning to return to China to develop in two months?”
Lin Hui paused and frowned slightly. “There’s such a huge difference in information, but the Zou family’s information has always been accurate. You…”
When Meng Yu saw Lin Hui’s doubts about his information, he immediately widened his eyes and retorted, “Don’t doubt my source of information. I have acquaintances in that circle.”
Lin Hui suddenly thought of Jiang An and felt that he had neglected some key points. However, after thinking for a moment, he could not think of any connection. In the end, he gave up.
When Zou Bai and the others returned to the hotel, it was already past nine o’clock. Jiang Yu and Jiang Yi had only washed the sand off on the yacht, so when they returned, the nannies took them to shower again. Then, it was time to sleep.
Jiang An and Zou Bai watched the siblings fall asleep before returning to their room.
Zou Bai walked behind her. When Jiang An heard the door close behind her, she felt a little nervous. She swallowed her saliva and picked up her pajamas by the bed. “I’ll take a shower first.”
With that, Jiang An quickly took her clothes into the bathroom and soaked in the bathtub like a quail.
Zou Bai was in his room dealing with the more urgent matters of the day. When he was done, he realized that Jiang An hadn’t come out yet. He looked at the time and saw that she had been in for a long time. Worried, he walked to the bathroom door and knocked. “An’an, are you alright?”
Jiang An, who was a little sleepy, was awakened by the knocking. She suddenly opened her eyes and looked at the bathroom door. She raised her voice and shouted, “I’m fine.”
Zou Bai reminded her, “It’s easy to run out of oxygen if you take a bath for too long. You’ve been in there for almost an hour. Come out quickly after you’re done.”
Only then did Jiang An realize that her state just now was a sign of lack of oxygen. If Zou Bai hadn’t knocked on the door, she might have fainted. She hurriedly replied, “I’m done showering. I’ll be out soon.”
Jiang An didn’t dare to delay any longer. She got up and splashed cold water on her face. After waking up, she hurriedly wiped the water droplets off her body and put on her clothes. Then, she saw Zou Bai leaning against the door frame with his arms crossed. There was a faint smile on his face. “I thought you were planning to stay there tonight.”
As she had just taken a shower and was a little lacking in oxygen, Jiang An’s cheeks were red, masking her embarrassed expression after hearing Zou Bai’s teasing. “Hurry up and take your shower.”
Zou Bai smiled as he took out his clothes from the wardrobe and entered the bathroom.
Jiang An walked to the bed and sat down. Suddenly, she remembered the gift she had made. She hurriedly took out the gift from the bedside table and placed it on the bed.
When Zou Bai came out of the bathroom, he saw that the bedroom was pitch-black. Only the dim yellow light from the bathroom behind him could be seen.
Zou Bai frowned slightly. He hadn’t come out yet. With Jiang An’s meticulous personality, it was impossible for her not to even leave a lamp on for him. He felt that it was strange.
There was a soft click that sounded like a switch being turned on and off, and the dark shapes of several round spheres appeared on all four walls.
Zou Bai followed the light and saw Jiang An sitting by the bed, holding the light source in her hand.
Seeing Zou Bai walk towards her, Jiang An stood up with the lamp in her hand. “This is my apology gift.”
Zou Bai lowered his eyes slightly and saw the lamp with the eight planets as the theme. In the middle was the source that was emitting a cold white light. It stood in the middle like the sun. The other planets were in their respective orbits. Transparent threads fixed them to their positions..
