Ji Shiting took a deep breath and said, “It turns out that my trust in her is not without a reason.”
“Humph.” Qiao Yanze said disdainfully. “That’s because three years isn’t long enough. Why don’t you go missing for another year or two?”
Qiao Yanze couldn’t stand his smugness, so he kept irking him in his sore spot.
“But I’m back now.” Ji Shiting shot him a glance. “So nothing will happen.”
Qiao Yanze touched his chin with the tip of his tongue and stopped joking.
“You have to be careful this time.” He looked at the twins in the living room. “You can’t miss it anymore.”
Ji Shiting swallowed hard and nodded slowly but firmly.
“Their birthday is in three days?” he said.
“Yes,” Qiao Yanze answered. “They like you a lot.”
“Yes. They also said they want me to be their father and not you.” Ji Shiting looked at him.
Qiao Yanze sighed. These two kids really knew how to play.
“Really?” He smiled. “They’re just sweet-talking. Don’t take it seriously.”
“I think they’re serious.” Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow. “Shouldn’t you reflect on yourself?”
Qiao Yanze chuckled inwardly.
‘You should be the one reflecting! You don’t even recognize your own children, yet you still have the cheek to blame me!’
“Why don’t I give one of them to you?” He said.
Ji Shiting was stunned. “Are you serious?”
“Yes.” Qiao Yanze chuckled. “The two kids are giving me a headache.”
“Why don’t you give both of them to me?” Ji Shiting curled his lips. “How can you separate the twins? Besides, the two of them have great chemistry.”
Ji Shiting felt that every time the two kids looked at each other, they would communicate tacitly. Was this the telepathy of the twins?
Qiao Yanze thought to himself, ‘You’re so silly.’
“You should give birth to some children yourself.” He resisted the urge to roll his eyes.
In the living room, the two kids were finally tired, so Li Yinian carried them to the sofa and served them some dessert she had made herself.
The two of them thanked her and ate happily.
Li Yinian smiled and stroked their heads. “Why were you guys being so naughty? You know that’s your father, right?”
“Because Dad doesn’t remember us.” Jinchen licked his lips. “And Mom wanted to keep this surprise until our birthday, so we had to pretend not to know him.”
Li Yinian chuckled and said, “You two are smart.”
“Daddy gave this to me.” Jinqing raised her hand. She was wearing Ji Shiting’s wristwatch, but it was too big for her. She could slide it all the way down her forearm if she raised her hand but even so, she was very happy.
“Do you guys like your dad?” Li Yinian smiled.
“I do.” Jinchen nodded. “Dad is so tall and strong.”
“Most importantly, he likes me and Jinchen,” Jinqing said proudly.
Other people complimenting their father in front of them wouldn’t be as effective as meeting him once in person. Actually, they had expectations and had imagined what their father would be like but every time they mentioned his father, their mother would be very sad, so they gradually didn’t want to mention him anymore.
