Since the distance was a bit far, he did not hear most of what Lombardi had said.
However, he had managed to catch the last sentence that Lombardi spoke.
For some unknown reason, he subconsciously swatted his hand against the back of Nian Xiaomu’s head when he saw that she was in a complete rush to explain herself.
She looked afraid. Was it because of that sentence as well?
With a single arm, Yu Yuehan carried Xiao Liuliu in his embrace. He lowered his gaze and stared at Nian Xiaomu, who stood before him. Following which, he spoke with ease and with no signs of panic, “My Italian is not good, and I only know the basic greetings.”
Nian Xiaomu, who was still very agitated just now, suddenly froze all at once.
As she let out an “Ah” in exclamation, she proceeded to pull her own hair; from the look on her face, she seemed to have had a sudden realization.
As it turned out, Yu Yuehan didn’t understand what Lombardi had said.
This made sense. Italian was not as commonly used as English in the nation, and it was perfectly normal for him to not understand the language.
In that case, the reason why Yu Yuehan had not clarified their relationship just now was simply because he did not know what Lombardi had said…
As Nian Xiaomu lowered her head, she kept her gaze fixated on her toenails.
She should be heaving a sigh of relief at this point in time.
However, for some reason, there was a depressing feeling in her chest.
“What’s up with your Italian?” Yu Yuehan walked a step forward. With his tall body, he enveloped her in his own shadow.
The moment he said this, a dubious look flashed past his eyes.
She had stunning talents.
She also had outstanding public relations skills.
Furthermore, it now seemed that she also had a remarkable linguistic gift…
She was exactly like Pandora’s boxhow many “surprises” was she intending to bring to him?
“You never mentioned that you knew Italian.” Yu Yuehan’s eyes flickered.
Nian Xiaomu was still entranced in her thoughts. When she heard his question, she lifted her head up subconsciously and answered, “You didn’t ask me about it.”
Yu Yuehan: “…”
As the space between Yu Yuehan’s eyebrows relaxed, he took a look at the person before him, the one with a face of innocence.
His gaze turned gentle.
Could he interpret what she had said as this: If he had asked her about it, she would have told him the truth?
“What did Lombardi say to you right before I came?”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
Wasn’t that the end of the matter? Why had he asked about it all of a sudden?
How should she answer him?
She couldn’t possibly say this: “Congratulations, Mr. Lombardi said that your daughter resembles me. She has inherited all of the outstanding genes from me and is definitely a beautiful and smart little angel!”
However, she was also afraid that Yu Yuehan would misunderstand her, would think that she was a woman who had the delusion of becoming the step-mother of his daughter, and would snap her neck off!
Nian Xiaomu deliberated for a while before she finally forced a sentence out.
“No, nothing, he praised Xiao Liuliu for being adorable and said that she has good personality traits.”
When Yu Yuehan heard this, he took a glance at Xiao Liuliu, who was obediently nestled in his embrace, and raised his chin.
“Yes, my daughter takes after me.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
Mr. Lombardi had obviously said that Xiao Liuliu resembled Nian Xiaomu and that Xiao Liuliu got her adorable looks and good personality traits from Nian Xiaomu. Why was Yu Yuehan so proud of himself?!
Xiao Liuliu would only look like an iceberg if she resembled him!
Speaking of which, Xiao Liuliu’s character really did not resemble him at all…
A series of phone ringing interrupted her thoughts. As Nian Xiaomu returned to her senses, she looked at the caller ID on her cell phone and said, “Crap, I forgot that I have to return to the department to report my work!”
“Young Master, I’ll take my leave first!” She did not manage to say much and sprinted toward the office.
Yu Yuehan’s long and slender figure stood still at its original spot for a long time. With a deep and soulful gaze, he stared fixedly at the view of her back until she disappeared from sight.
What Lombardi had said just now flashed past his mind again.
Yu Yuehan was suddenly aware that his emotions were again easily affected by Nian Xiaomu, and he knitted his eyebrows.
