“Xiao Liuliu, don’t scare me. Does it hurt anywhere?” Nian Xiaomu scooped Xiao Liuliu into her embrace and checked her thoroughly for any injuries; she only heaved a sigh of relief when she did not discover anything peculiar.
Just when she wanted to ask Yu Yuehan if there was a need to send Xiao Liuliu to the hospital for a checkup, he strolled behind her and said in an indifferent tone, “Xiao Liuliu fell down because she heard that you were heading out.”
“…” So, she was responsible for it?
Lowering her gaze, Nian Xiaomu stared at Xiao Liuliu, who was nestled in her arms, and inquired with the expression in her eyes.
Xiao Liuliu’s dark and huge eyes blinked a few times. Following which, she stole an extremely aggrieved glance at Yu Yuehan. The next second, she threw herself into Nian Xiaomu’s embrace and hugged her neck, refusing to let go.
It looked like Xiao Liuliu really hated to part with her…
Nian Xiaomu’s heart melted at once.
Hugging her, Nian Xiaomu patted her back gently to console her and said, “Xiao Liuliu, don’t be afraid. I am not leaving. I will be accompanying you for the entire night tonight and will not be heading anywhere.”
When Yu Yuehan heard this, a serene streak of light flashed past his eyes.
He curled his lips in satisfaction.
Twisting his head around, he instructed the butler to serve the meal.
Nian Xiaomu carried Xiao Liuliu in her arms and followed him to the dining table. When she noticed the red roses that were placed on the dining table, she was slightly taken aback.
The words that Xiao Liuliu said just now flashed past her mind again.
Had he cut of all the roses in the garden just to use them as decorations for the dining room?
No, no. She had previously seen the size of the rose garden in the Yu Family villa, and the roses covered a very huge piece of land. That amount of roses would be more than sufficient if it were to be used to decorate a ballroom, let alone to decorate a dining room.
It was highly impossible for him to have cut all the roses just to decorate a dining room.
Since this was the case, what exactly was happening?
“What’s the matter?” When Yu Yuehan realized that she was rooted to the ground, he took a glance at her indifferently and realized that she was staring at the roses on the table. Narrowing his eyes, he said, “You don’t like roses?”
Hadn’t she been smiling radiantly when Chen Zixin met her with a bunch of roses in his hand?
Nian Xiaomu met his gaze and blurted out, “That not it. Xiao Liuliu said that you cut all the roses in the garden.”
She was only aware that she had had a slip of the tongue when she finished her sentence.
She hurriedly carried Xiao Liuliu, walked to the dining table, and was preparing to divert the topic as she placed Xiao Liuliu in the children’s high chair.
However, Yu Yuehan had already walked to her side before she could say anything.
With his hands behind his back, the expression on his face couldn’t be seen because his tall body was standing against the light. She could only hear him open his mouth as he spoke in an apathetic manner, “Roses have thorns that might prick Xiao Liuliu, so that’s why I had them all cut.”
As he said that, he motioned to the butler.
The next moment, the butler walked to him with a huge bouquet of roses in hand and passed the bouquet to him.
The roses that were freshly cut were very brightly-colored and pretty; the red color looked flamboyant as well, just like the color that signified a couple that was passionately in love.
The dewdrops on the petals radiated sparkling and translucent rays under the light.
Yu Yuehan took the bouquet from the butler and stuffed it into Nian Xiaomu’s hands.
“If you like it, you can have it.”
Carrying a huge bouquet of roses in her hand, Nian Xiaomu stared blankly and had completely forgotten how to react.
She had felt absolutely nothing when Chen Zixin carried a bouquet of roses and invited her for a meal.
Even when she heard the gossip from her colleagues, she had assumed that they were also just cracking jokes.
However, why was she so nervous at this moment when Yu Yuehan gave her the roses?
Without realizing it, the rate of her heartbeat increased, and her heart seemed like it was about to bounce out from her throat.
Her body tightened especially after she saw the servant coming out of the kitchen with a plate of steak in hand…
Roses, steak, red wine…
It would be a legitimate candlelight dinner if two candles were lit up.
For some indescribable reason, she started to develop an illusion…
In this situation, did they look like they were on a date?
