Chapter 299: You Want Me to Stay?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jiang An quickly rubbed her waist and couldn’t help but curse at Zou Bai, who had tortured her to death last night.
She reached out to take her phone and looked at the time. The words “11 o’clock” appeared. Jiang An’s eyes widened.
“Oh my God!”
Jiang An exclaimed and quickly got out of bed.
Just as she was washing up, Zou Bai entered the room.
Hearing the sound of water flowing in the bathroom, Zou Bai walked over. “I thought you weren’t up yet. I’m preparing to set off back to Jingdu City.”
Jiang An was rinsing her mouth when she subconsciously asked, “So soon?! Aren’t you going to eat first before leaving?”
A smile flashed across Zou Bai’s eyes as he asked, “Do you want me to stay and eat before leaving?”
It wasn’t easy to meet in a long-distance relationship. Jiang An still wanted Zou Bai to stay for a while longer and nurture his relationship with his children.
Jiang An thought for a moment and asked, “What time is your flight?”
Zou Bai casually placed one hand on the sink and tapped the counter in a brisk and rhythmic manner. “There’s still time. Do you want me to stay to eat?”
Jiang An spat out the foam in her mouth. “It’s almost time to eat. If you have time, have a good meal. 1’11 get Aunt Fang and the others to move faster. We’ll have lunch earlier.”
Seeing that Jiang An had already started making arrangements, Zou Bai agreed. “Okay.”
Jiang An rinsed her mouth with water and quickly washed her face before walking out of the bedroom. “Aunt Fang, Aunt Sang, go cook some rice first. Just cook some time-saving dishes. Zou Bai has a plane to catch.”
Zou Yi and Zou Er stood at the entrance. When they heard Jiang An’s instructions, they didn’t even need to count the time. They knew that even if they rushed over now, they would only barely be able to catch the plane.
Zou Er raised his hand and touched his nose. He covered his mouth and said angrily, “Sigh, I finally know what it means. From now on, the king doesn’t attend morning court anymore. Master isn’t drunk, but he still fell into the beauty’s tent.”
Zou Yi opened his mouth slightly. Without moving his lips, he replied softly, “It’s another matter. I only know that those executives are going to be stood up at the meeting at four in the afternoon.”
Zou Er glanced at Zou Yi disapprovingly. “Master has been diligent for so many years. Now, he occasionally indulges himself. What’s wrong? He’s just standing them up. If they end up working overtime, they get 1.5 times their salary.”
Zou Yi silently rolled his eyes. “Have you been studying flattery literature recently?”
Zou Er’s expression froze. “What do you know? This is called being understanding.”
The two of them were chatting when they suddenly felt a cold gaze on them. They looked back and saw Zou Bai looking at them with a faint smile.
Zou Yi and Zou Er immediately straightened their postures, as straight as poplar trees.
Zou Bai retracted his gaze and sat cross-legged on the carpet in the living room with Jiang An, playing games with the two children.
Jiang Yu seemed to have sensed something. Her face no longer had her usual smiling expression. She strode forward with her short legs and sat on Zou Bai’s thigh. “Daddy, are you leaving?”
Jiang Yu’s body was filled with the smell of milk. Her flesh was so soft that Zou Bai couldn’t help but pull the little child into his arms. He lowered his head and kissed the top of Jiang Yu’s head. “Yes, Daddy has to go to work. Be good here with Little Brother. Don’t let Mommy worry. I’ll come back to see you guys after a while.”
Jiang Yu was not in a good mood. She leaned into Zou Bai’s arms with a reluctant expression on her face. “Daddy, I’ll miss you. And there’s Mommy and Little Brother. You have to come and see us quickly.”
Jiang Yu looked up with watery eyes, making Zou Bai’s heart soften. “Okay, Daddy will deal with the work as quickly as possible and then come to see you guys.”
Jiang Yu nodded solemnly. “Alright.”
Zou Bai touched Jiang Yu’s face and extended his arm to rub the back of Jiang Yi’s head. “Little guy, will you miss me?”
Although Jiang Yi had been fiddling with the building blocks with his eyes lowered, after Zou Bai sat down, the progress on the prototype of the Lego palace on the ground had completely halted.
Hearing Zou Bai’s question, Jiang Yi raised his head slightly and asked, “Then will you miss me?”
Zou Bai raised his eyebrows. “Oh, you’re not easy to trick. If I don’t miss you, you won’t miss me anymore, right?”
Jiang Yi rolled his eyes in thought and nodded.
After interacting with each other for so long, Zou Bai had somewhat understood Jiang Yi’s personality. He smiled helplessly. “Of course 1’11 miss you, so you have to miss me too.”
The corners of Jiang Yi’s mouth curled up slightly, but he did not look at Zou Bai anymore. Instead, he lowered his head to look at the carpet and replied softly, “That’s for sure. I’m a very fair person..”
