“You’ll never give me what I ask for.” Yerek said pitifully. Christina snapped, “Then don’t ask.”
After all, nothing good can ever come out from his mouth.
“You’re so heartless!”
Just when Christina was about to hang up the phone, the languid voice from the other side of the line piqued her curiosity. “You’re not interested in my stuff, but I suppose you want to know more about Nathaniel?”
Her silence confirmed that Yerek was right about her. “Nathaniel has long known about the secrets of your identity and background, but he didn’t tell you.”
“What is it about?” Christina’s expression darkened as she gripped her phone.
“I’ll tell you if you come over to see me.” With that, Yerek ended the call and plunged into deep thoughts while staring at his phone in the ward.
His assistant was completely baffled. “Mr. Gibson, do you really want to tell her something so important?”
This is the best way to sow discord between Christina and Nathaniel,” Yerek muttered as he narrowed his
He waited in the ward for a very long time. When the doctor informed him that he could be discharged, Christina still did not show up.
Christina hated the feeling of being threatened. She went back to Scenic Garden Manor instead.
If Nathaniel knows something. I can ask him directly.
As she was entering the manor, she noticed Nathaniel’s car in the garage, so she strode toward the second floor.
The study was so quiet that only the sound of light tapping on the keyboard could be heard.
Nathaniel lifted his head upon hearing footsteps approaching. “You’re back?”
She stared at the serious-looking Nathaniel and remembered Yerek’s words. She was about to say something, but she held herself back.
Yerek isn’t a trustworthy person. What if he lied to me? Then I would’ve fallen into his trap!
“What are you thinking about?” The man’s enthralling deep voice rang out.
Christina snapped back to her senses. Her eyes gleamed as she spoke. “Nothing. I was just thinking about the launch of the new brand.”
Nathaniel approached her, grabbed her hands, and led her to the couch to take a seat. “Don’t think too much. Just leave it to the assistant.”
Christina chuckled Although half of the investment came from Yerek, we’ve also contributed an enormous sum of money It’s better to keep an eye on it.”
Usually, the designer had to check the apparel several times before they were shipped from the factory to the display shelves. That was to ensure that the quality of the clothes and its logo were all meeting stipulated requirements.
In fact, Christina did not have to care so much if it was not for Nathaniel, who insisted on getting involved for no apparent reason. She could have stood aside and watched the progress.
“How about I get the kitchen to prepare some supper for you?” Nathaniel placed his fingertips on her temples and massaged them gently
Christina shut her eyes and merely hummed in response.
She could feel the warm yet tender touch of his fingers. It was like a gentle breeze in the summer, making her feel very relaxed.
She grew from resisting Nathaniel’s touch to gradually becoming fond of it. His soft whispers, coupled with the way he gently massaged her temples, made her lose herself in the moment.
The following day. Bailey wanted to meet up with the two adorable munchkins, so she made an appointment with Christina to meet at the shopping mall.
Bailey gave the children a big hug the moment she saw them. “Lucas, Camila, did you miss me?”
“Of course! I want you to buy me ice cream. Aunt Bailey.” Lucas was all smiles as he spoke, his eyes gleaming with delight.
Not to be outdone, Camila lifted her fair and sweet face and said, “Me too! I want you to buy me candies, Aunt Bailey!”
Bailey pinched their checks. “I think the two of you miss my candies and ice cream more.”
“We think of you whenever we eat the candies you bought. We miss you and your gifts. Lucas’ mien and his gift of the gab appeared endearing.
“In that case, I must buy you lots of them.” Bailey was fully convinced by the cheeky fellow.
She held their little hands and led them into the mall.
Christina had to check on the store first, so she left the two children for Bailey to babysit.
Bailey took the kids shopping and bought them snacks and clothes. They also went for all the rides at the children’s amusement park. The trio only stopped when they felt tired.
“How are things between your daddy and mommy lately?” Bailey tried to fish some information from the children.
Lucas and Camila folded their arms and replied solemnly, “Mommy told us not to share our family situation with outsiders.”
The two children looked absolutely lovely when they got serious.
Bailey giggled. “How can I. your godmother, be considered an outsider? After all, I want to help your daddy and mommy improve their relationship.”
Prove That You Love Us
The little ones thought she made sense.
Lucas leaned toward Bailey and whispered, “There’s nothing special going on between Daddy and Mommy”
“What do you mean exactly?” Bailey asked.
Camila cupped her cheeks in her hands and thought for a while. “Their days are neither exciting nor boring. Sometimes, Mommy is already sleeping when Daddy gets home. They don’t talk.”
“This simply won’t do!” Bailey started getting worried because rumor had it that Madison still had feelings. for Nathaniel. Besides having internal conflicts, Christina is also facing external threats, She’s in a risky situation!
Lucas blinked and asked in curiosity, “Aunt Bailey, what do you think we should do?”
A mischievous grin crept up on Bailey’s face. “Wait for me here.”
She turned around and entered a branded store. Within two minutes, she came out with a small shopping. bag.
“This bag is for your daddy, and this card over here is for your mommy…” Bailey whispered her plan into the cars of the two little ones.
Lucas and Camila widened their eyes. They nodded profusely and asked. “Aunt Bailey, are you sure we can help spice up Daddy and Mommy’s relationship by doing that?”
“For sure!” Bailey was very confident that her plan would not backfire.
“All right. We’ll do whatever you say, Aunt Bailey.” The cute children were filled with confidence.
After completing her work, Christina met up with the trio at a juice shop outside the mall.
She brought her kids home upon bidding Bailey goodbye.
On the way home, Camila and Lucas dozed off in the car. They did not even know they were carried upstairs to their room when they got back to Scenic Garden Manor.
Since they were fast asleep, Christina proceeded to the study to continue her work. It was almost evening when the two children woke up and dashed to the study to look for her.
The kids looked like two elves who had lost their way home when they suddenly popped their heads out beside the desk. Their eyes were huge and sparkly,
Camila asked adorably, “Mommy, do you like us?”
“Of course I do.” It was one of those questions that Christina had to answer several times a day.
Little children like to ask questions that are important to them repeatedly.
Lucas seized the opportunity and said, “Mommy, words alone are not enough.”
Christina was amused. She stopped working and lightly brushed the tip of his nose. “What do you have in mind?”
Lucas’ eyes lit up as he passed her a blank card. “Express your feelings in words and write them on this card to prove that you love us the most!”
