What was with him?
Nian Xiaomu’s heart skipped a beat. She was about to lift her head, but found that the back of her head was pressed down by a hand, and she could not move.
She could hardly breathe!
“Don’t move. There are reporters,” his low voice said slowly.
His other arm was hooked around Nian Xiaomu’s waist, and now, he was hugging her and Xiao Liuliu even more tightly.
Anyone who looked at them right now would think that this was the perfect picture of a sweet family of three.
Nian Xiaomu’s body stiffened up.
After a while, she asked nervously, “Have the reporters gone away?”
Without waiting for Yu Yuehan’s reply, her little head turned to the side to take a peek. She saw that there were a few youngsters with cameras in their hands a short distance away.
They looked like a group of friends who had arranged to come out and take photographs of one another.
It did not seem like they were targeting the three of them…
Yu Yuehan had also noticed her line of sight. As he let out a cough, he let go of her and said indifferently, “I saw wrong.”
His cold face was devoid of expressions, but his hands had silently balled up into tight fists.
The centers of his palms were starting to burn.
With his observation skills, he usually would not make a mistake when identifying reporters.
Earlier on, when he was watching her look at the roses, his arms subconsciously reached out and hugged her.
It was only after he regained his composure that he realized what he had done.
“It’s okay. You wanted to protect Xiao Liuliu.” Nian Xiaomu took a step back and lowered her head to look at Xiao Liuliu who was in her arms.
She could understand that Yu Yuehan did not wish for photographs of Xiao Liuliu to be exposed on social media because Xiao Liuliu was still so young.
Furthermore, they were not a family of three. If reporters really captured photographs of them, she couldn’t even imagine what might be written about them.
It was only right that he exercised more caution.
Nian Xiaomu pursed her lips and said, “Let’s hurry back now.”
After that embrace between them, the atmosphere seemed extra still as they waited for the assistant to arrive.
Then, Nian Xiaomu’s cell phone suddenly rang.
She was holding the roses in her arms, so when she answered the phone with her other free arm, she accidentally tapped the “speaker phone” mode.
Chen Zixin’s voice spoke up clearly from the phone.
“Supervisor Nian, I thought I saw you at the theater…” Before he could finish what he wanted to say, the call got disconnected.
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
She looked back in shock, but at the same time, the assistant was approaching them in the car. Then, the assistant stopped the car by the side of the road.
The car door opened.
Before Nian Xiaomu could snap back to her senses, Yu Yuehan coolly said, “Get in.”
“President Chen Jr. might be around here. Oh, he had bought tickets to watch a movie with me. Was it at this theater?” Nian Xiaomu tugged at Yu Yuehan’s sleeve as she asked.
A flash of light flickered across Yu Yuehan’s face, and he icily replied, “You remembered wrong. It wasn’t here.”
“President Chen Jr. said he just saw me. He should be around here…” As Nian Xiaomu spoke, she turned to survey the surroundings. Without giving her time to find Chen Zixin, Yu Yuehan planted himself right in front of her to block her view.
A dark shadow casted over that handsome face.
His eyes were dark like ink. Then, he said, “Xiao Liuliu should go home to rest now.”
That’s true. They had been out for an entire day.
Children were not like grown-ups. They would surely be tired after playing outside for a whole day.
Anyway, there was no way it could be that coincidental. President Chen Jr. must have spotted someone else.
After a second of hesitation, Nian Xiaomu went directly into the car.
Yu Yuehan subsequently sat down next to her and instructed the chauffeur to set off immediately.
Just as the car drove off, a frustrated-looking Chen Zixin popped out from the crowd while holding his cell phone that had run out of battery at the most crucial moment!
