“If your father knows that you guys think I’m more important than him, he’ll definitely be furious,” Qiao Yanze said and snorted. “He deserves it.”
No matter what the reason was, it was too irresponsible to abandon his wife and kids.
It had been three years, and God knows where he was.
“It’s your birthday in three days.” Qiao Yanze stroked the two kids’ heads. “Tell me, what birthday present do you want?”
Jinchen and Jinqing looked at each other.
“Uncle Qiao, can Jinchen and I be the flower boy and girl when you get married?” Jinqing blinked.
“Get married? What marriage?” Qiao Yanze immediately became cautious.
“Auntie Li said so.” Ah Chen smiled innocently. “He said you were going to marry another lady. Would she be as beautiful as Aunt Li and like us too?”
“No such thing!” Qiao Yanze gritted his teeth. “She’s lying to you. Don’t listen to her nonsense!”
“But my brother and I want to be the flower boy and girl.” Jinqing felt aggrieved.
“There’ll be a chance.” Qiao Yanze raised an eyebrow. “You two can be the flower boy and girl when Aunt Li and I get married, okay?”
“But Aunt Li doesn’t like you!” Ah Chen said in surprise.
Qiao Yanze felt speechless. ‘Children really like running their mouths.’
“Who says she doesn’t like me? She likes me a lot.” Qiao Yanze sneered. “Your Aunt Li doesn’t mean what she says.”
“But…” Jinqing said, confused. “Aunt Li is dating another man.”
Qiao Yanze was dazed for a bit, but he refused to believe it. “Impossible!”
He had been busy with work recently, and he hadn’t seen that woman in days, but she was dating another man? She wouldn’t dare!
“Aunt Li said it herself yesterday.” Jinchen nodded. “My sister and I heard it.”
Qiao Yanze’s face was sullen. He stroked the kids’ heads and said, “Good. Uncle Qiao didn’t dote on you in vain.”
“Uncle Qiao, are you bullying Aunt Li?” Qing’er asked worriedly.
“No.” Qiao Yanze smiled ambiguously. “I’ll only make her happy.”
He would at most make that woman cry in bed, why would he bully her?
The two kids were still immersed in excitement after coming out of the zoo.
“Did you have fun?”
“It’s good that you’re happy. Uncle Qiao will take you to have a feast in the afternoon.” Qiao Yanze carried the two kids into the car. “But you have to do me a favor later.”
“What favor?” Jinchen asked.
“You’ll know later.” Qiao Yanze suddenly smiled murderously.
If it weren’t for the two kids telling him, he wouldn’t have known that Li Yinian had started dating another man. Thus, he had asked around for Li Yinian’s whereabouts, and he had heard from Li Yinian’s assistant that she had a date this afternoon.
‘Hah, they just met last night, and they are going on another date again today. Does that woman have a death wish?’
The two kids didn’t know what Qiao Yanze’s smile meant, but since Uncle Qiao asked them for help, they had to give him respect, so they nodded obediently.
Before long, the car arrived at the restaurant.
As a member, Qiao Yanze immediately got a seat without an appointment. He held the two children’s hands and walked in.
Soon, he saw Li Yinian’s back.
