My Second Husband novel Chapter 689

Eudora stood at the dining table downstairs and looked at the dishes in dismay.

She felt that she was the worst mother on earth.

She was too busy to attend to her children when they needed her in the past. Now, her children no longer needed her. It was probably karma.

Cindy noticed Eudora crying silently when she stepped into the kitchen.

The once beautiful and carefree Eudora had become so unhappy because of her children.

Cindy sighed, "Why don't I take the food and have Mr. Granger feed them to Sugar Bun? I'm sure he'll like them!"

"That way, you could cook for him in the future too!"

Eudora's eyes lit up. "That's a good idea. I'm sorry to trouble you then, Cindy."

Eudora was a bit flustered. She wanted to bring everything that she had prepared, but that was only so much space.

Cindy smiled and said, "Mrs. Granger, please calm down. It takes time for Sugar Bun to get close to anyone. You two will be fine in the future, I'm sure!"

Eudora nodded as she watched Cindy make her way up the stairs with the food in her hands.

A moment later, the crying in the room stopped. Eudora wanted to go upstairs and take a look, but she was afraid that Sugar Bun would cry again. She decided to suppress the urge instead.

However, her heart was still filled with worry. She stood there in a daze for the entire morning.

Sugar Bun became less moody after having breakfast, so Amos took him to play on the swings in the garden.

Eudora composed herself and put on a gardener's outfit. She put on a big hat and peeked at them secretly from afar.

Fortunately, Sugar Bun seemed to have gotten used to her usual appearance, so he didn't notice her at all.

He eventually got accustomed to the gardener's presence as time passed.

It was just that...

The flowers seemed to be over-pruned, no? It was completely different from what he had seen in the past!

That really got him, and he started laughing happily.

Looking from far away, Eudora smiled as she thought that he was having a good time.

Juju turned around and saw the over-trimmed bushes, and she sighed in exasperation.

"Daddy, what should we do?"

Amos pursed his lips. "Get someone to replant them. I want those that haven't been trimmed before so that your Mommy could do it herself!"

Juju was in disbelief.

They sat in the garden for the whole morning. They only went back inside when Sugar Bun started fussing for a nap.

Eudora took the opportunity to prepare toys for Sugar Bun to play with. She enjoyed doing it and she was not the least tired.

All of a sudden, she felt a pair of large hands reaching out to hold her from behind.

"Sweetheart, you've had a long day."

Eudora paused. She turned around and buried her head in Amos' chest. "You've worked hard as well! I was supposed to take care of all of you, yet I still needed you to help me to clean up the mess."

Amos frowned. "What are you talking about? This is our home, and we are a family. It's natural for us to do this. Weren't you the one who told me that?"

Eudora was relieved. He was right.

A family should always be like this, to go through thick and thin together.

"Thank you, Amos."

Eudora suddenly had an idea. "I changed my clothes in the morning and Sugar Bun did not recognize me. Do you think that he would recognize me if I had worn a headgear?"

Amos was amused. It was amazing that she could manage to think of so many strange ideas.

"Do you want to give it a try?"

Eudora went to take out the wolf's mask that she had bought before and put on a red dress.

She also sprayed a different perfume on herself to avoid Sugar Bun recognizing her scent.
