Ye Shengge got out of bed and changed her clothes before sending the two kids downstairs.
Qiao Yanze was indeed drinking coffee in the living room.
He looked up at Ye Shengge in disgruntlement and wanted to complain.
Ye Shengge came down after changing her clothes. She hadn’t washed her face or combed her hair, so her image wouldn’t be good. She knew what Qiao Yanze wanted to say, so she smiled and said, “I heard you’re getting engaged. Congratulations!”
Qiao Yanze sulked. He put down the coffee cup and sneered, “Nonsense!”
“Please mind your words.” Ye Shengge glared at him.
This was also why she didn’t want to go with him. She tended to argue with Qiao Yanze easily. Besides, it would feel like they were a family of four. She wanted to save that honor for Ji Shiting.
Qiao Yanze sneered and waved at the two kids. “Jinchen, Jinqing, go to the car first. Uncle Qiao prepared delicious food for you.”
Fortunately, the two kids were still on her side. They looked up at Ye Shengge and asked for her opinion.
Ye Shengge was very satisfied. She squatted down, kissed them and said, “Go.”
The two kids said goodbye to her and ran out.
“Aren’t you leaving?” Ye Shengge raised an eyebrow at the man sitting on the sofa.
Qiao Yanze stood up and said calmly, “Did she tell you I’m getting engaged?”
“Don’t play dumb.” Qiao Yanze sneered.
“Oh, Li Yinian?” Ye Shengge blinked. “That’s right. She told me.”
“She…” Qiao Yanze hesitated.
“She’s very happy.” Ye Shengge smiled. “She’s sincere.”
Qiao Yanze’s face immediately turned sullen. He sneered, “Do you think I would’ve cared about you and the two kids if it weren’t for Shiting?”
Ye Shengge smiled and said, “That’s hard on you.”
Qiao Yanze rolled his eyes and walked out.
In the past three years, Qiao Yanze had gotten rid of his second brother and third sister, and he had successfully gained a place in the headquarters of Fengqiao Corporation. However, even so, he was still as playful, just in another manner.
For example, playing with the two kids was one of his pleasures.
The two kids were sharing snacks, and they would stuff a piece into his mouth from time to time, which made Qiao Yanze feel good.
“Jinchen, Jinqing, let me ask you.” He swallowed the snacks in his mouth and asked seriously. “Do you like me more, or do you like your mom more?”
“Mom,” the two kids said at the same time.
Qiao Yanze snorted and pinched their ears though he wasn’t surprised.
“Do you like Uncle Qiao or Aunt Li more?”
“Aunt Li!” they said.
“I’ve doted on you for nothing!” Qiao Yanze was furious and asked. “Do you like Uncle Qiao more or your father more?”
The two kids finally hesitated.
They looked at each other, confused. Although their mom always told them how awesome their dad was, they had never seen him before…
They thought for a bit and said, “Uncle Qiao!”
Qiao Yanze finally got the answer he wanted.
However, he couldn’t be happy with that answer.
