Christina was surprised. #hy is Lucas blocking Madison’s teay?
In contrast to Christina, Madison’s eyes lit up. If I can get Nathaniel’s son to like me, he might not resent me that much.
She then knelt down with a smile. “Boy, do you want me to stay here with you?”
Lucas shook his head. “Madam, you dropped your lipstick on the couch. If you don’t take it with you, the cleaner will throw it away”
His words drew Christina’s attention to the sofa where she spotted a black lipstick case stuck in between the gap. It was hard to notice if one didn’t look close enough.
This must be one of Madison’s schemes. By leaving her lipstick in the office, she can cook up an excuse to come back here.
Madison’s expression froze before she broke into an awkward smile. After picking up her lipstick and putting it back inside her bag, she headed out the door.
However, Camila pinched her nose and snorted. “This perfume stuff’s up my nose. Mommy’s scent is so much better.”
Her words didn’t escape Madison. The moment she stepped out of the office, she lowered her head to give her body a sniff. This is the latest perfume on the market. Is the smell really that jarring?
When she turned around to look at Christina, she could see that the latter barely put on any makeup. Christina was wearing a light-colored outfit with her hair draped straight down on her shoulder. In a way, Christina did exude an aloofness that made her inexplicably beautiful coupled with the faint scent she carried.
Is this what differentiates us?
Meanwhile, inside a conference room, members of senior management were getting reprimanded by Nathaniel for failing to meet the targets he set for them.
The worst part was that they had nothing to defend themselves with, for everything Nathaniel said made perfect sense.
Once the meeting was over, Nathaniel returned to his office with a scowl on his face. A delicious and smoky aroma made him feel hungry the moment he stepped in.
“Daddy, come over quickly. It’s time for lunch!” Camila’s gentle voice relieved Nathaniel of the frustration he carried from work.
Lucas, with his innocent-looking face, declared smugly, “You’re in for a treat today, Daddy. Mommy has made all these for you”
Nathaniel gave Christina a look that was filled with anticipation. Since when did she become so thoughtful? Is she apologizing for kicking me last night?
“Hurry up, Daddy. I’m hungry.” Lucas jumped down from his chair and pulled his father toward the coffee
With a smorgasbord of dishes laid out on top of it, anyone who saw them would definitely salivate.

After serving the children their food, she rolled up her sleeves to peel some prawns for them
Nathaniel stopped her immediately and volunteered. Let me do it”
Just as Christina was about to reject his offer, Lucas-with his entire mouth covered with sauce-declared like an adult, “That’s right. You should leave such menial work to the men, Mommy. Why don’t you dig
With that, he stuffed his face with a big mouthful of food. Mmm, Mommy’s cooking is the best
After removing his jacket, Nathaniel rolled up his sleeves to reveal his muscular forearms. He then proceeded to peel the prawns with his fingers.
Outside, the members of senior management who had just received a dressing down were leaving the conference room one by one. When they passed by the CEO’s office, their eyes almost popped out of their sockets.
Are we seeing things? Our cold and aloof CEO is peeling prawns? He has become an entirely different person from the one who scolded us in the conference room.
Little did they expect to see their boss peeling prawns for Christina. In fact, he even fed her attentively by hand.
All they could do was watch on with envy and hope that one day Nathaniel would be equally nice to them.
Inside the office, the children finally had their fill. They subsequently lay down on the sofa to rest with their mouths still dirty.
As Christina headed over with a napkin to clean their mouths, she teased, “It looks like I have raised two pigs. All you do after eating is sleep,”
“We get to enjoy delicious food every day as your pet pig. It’s a wonderful life actually!” Lucas looked particularly adorable as he giggled.
Finally, Christina gave his nose a gentle scratch. “It’s time to go home. We shouldn’t interrupt Daddy’s work any longer.
Upon walking over, Nathaniel wrapped his arm around her slender waist. “Let them stay if they want to, There’s a room here. I’ll go in with you to rest if you’re tired.”
When images of what happened the last time in the room emerged in her mind, Christina’s cars blushed.
She raised her elbow to give Nathaniel a gentle nudge. Nonetheless, it was still strong enough to push him a few steps back.
She then gave him the side-eye. “Watch the children. I’m going back to work.”
With that, she turned around and left.
The moment she stepped into the elevator, she received a call from Azure.
“Do you have some time, Christina? Your father would like to see you.” Azure probed, as Christina hadn’t kept in touch ever since she left the mansion.
Clenching her phone, Christina knew that she couldn’t avoid the issue forever. “I do. I’ll head over right

The answer delighted Azure “All right. We’ll be waiting for you.”
After the call ended, Christina headed straight for the parking lot.
Twenty minutes later, her car came to a halt in front of the mansion. The housekeeper immediately opened the main door to let her in.
Thereafter, the housekeeper came forward to inform Christina, “Ms. Christina, Mrs. Lazuli is waiting for you in the study on the second floor.”
Upon nodding in acknowledgment, Christina headed upstairs.
Stopping in front of the door, Christina could see two figures in the room. She then called out in a distant tone, “Grandma, Dad.”
Both of them were slightly jolted at the same time,
Azure came over to hold Christina’s arm before closing the door behind them. “We were so worried that you would never come back.”
The thought had never crossed Christina’s mind. She just needed some time to digest the new information.
“You’re a member of the Gibson family no matter what happens to you. We spent years searching for you and hope that you’ll return to us,” asserted Timothy
At the end of the day, she was still his child. He was also someone who harbored no bias toward a particular gender.
After all, in this modern day, ability instead of gender was all that mattered when it came to inheriting the family business.
Christina took a deep breath before replying with a look of conviction. “Of course, I’m happy to be back.”
Even though she hadn’t had everything figured out yet, there was no question when it came to returning to her father’s side.
Moved by her words, Timothy held Christina’s hand tightly. “You’re such a good girl. I was afraid that you would be angry at us. From now on, you’ll never be separated from your family anymore.”
Christina, too, nodded emotionally.
After the warm exchange, Timothy patted Christina on the hand. “Christina, since our family business is based in Hallsbay, we’ll be heading back there now that we have found you. Both your grandmother and I hope that you will come along with us. What do you think?”
