A pleading sound escaped Cheng Weiwan's throat. "Can I just sneak a quick peek? Just one..."
Her careful and cautious words ignited a familiar sense of frustration Han Zhifan felt last night at the Golden Lounge. He instinctively furrowed his brows as a hint of annoyance flashed in his eyes.
Sensing a change in Han Zhifan's expression, Cheng Weiwan was afraid he would refuse, so before he could speak, she cried, "I promise I won't say anything or do anything. I'll just watch Hanhan from afar. Okay?"
She spoke softly, but Han Zhifan perceived her request to be incredibly noisy as he listened with a growing rage. Then he interrupted her with a furious voice. "Quit dreaming!"
Cheng Weiwan appeared frightened by the violent tone in his voice as she instantly fell silent.
A wall of silence engulfed the study.
He only got angry because he hated that she spoke out. However, now that she wasn't saying a word, not only did the fire in his chest not subside but the flames grew fiercer.
Han Zhifan forcefully pulled out a cigarette, shoved it between his lips and violently lit it with a lighter. After taking two drags, he turned his head and shot Cheng Weiwan a glance. He saw that her complexion had turned pale white and she had her head lowered while standing in the same spot without showing any signs of leaving. "What are you still standing there for? Are you waiting for me to see you off?" he exclaimed, no longer with a good temper.
Cheng Weiwan continued to stand there for a while with her head lowered then she finally said, "Hanhan has a natural deficiency of vitamin B and he's prone to suffering from excessive internal heat, so he has to drink more water. He hates eating carrots, so he needs to eat it a little every day. If he really won't eat it, remember to give him some children's vitamin gummies."
Han Zhifan ignored Cheng Weiwan.
After about two seconds, Cheng Weiwan added, "Hanhan has bad sleeping habits at night. He often kicks off his covers, so you have to check up on him in the middle of the night; otherwise, he'll catch a cold."
"Hanhan's not very brave. He's grown up with me by his side, so he might be a little shy. He's never met your people here, so he's definitely going to be a little afraid of strangers. No matter what, don't get mad at him. He'll definitely be scared."
The more Cheng Weiwan spoke, the more she wanted to cry. When she thought about how much she loved him, she used to let go and cry, but now... she didn't even want to let Han Zhifan see her eyes turning red. She tried hard to hold back to prevent him from seeing her weakness. She spoke slowly and deliberately as she said, "Hanhan is allergic to cat hairs, but he really likes little animals. He always likes to rush over to them when adults aren't paying attention. If there are cats nearby, you have to watch him. Otherwise, his whole body will be covered with red bumps. If it gets serious, he'll get a fever."
"If he doesn't see me, he'll definitely try to find me and he'll cry. You guys will have to cheer him up and have a little patience."
"If he's unwilling to go to sleep, tell him a story. His favorite is the hare and the tortoise..."
Cheng Weiwan really wanted to give him more reminders, but she couldn't go on. She stayed quiet for a while and went straight to the point. "I know you don't like me. In fact, you hate me... But Hanhan did nothing wrong. I hope you won't take your anger out on the child."
