They then lulled Nicole to sleep; this wasn’t the first time Harry was laying on the same bed with his wife and daughter. But he was pretty excited and happy about it. He gently put Nicole, who was sleeping like a log, in his arms.
Nicole was soft and chubby, and fearing that he would wake her up, Harry lessened his movements.
Lola saw Harry’s concern and then happily raised her lips.
The whole family was peacefully sleeping together – it was fabulous.
While Lola was cuddled in Harry’s arms, she asked, “You’re going to work tomorrow, right?”
If Harry went to work, then she would have to stay at home, alone. She would get bored.
“Em… If you’re bored, you can go outside and go for a walk; I’ll assign for you a chauffeur to drive you anywhere you want.” There were also the guards to protect her just in case anything happened.
Lola nodded, and figured that if she were to live like this then all she would do was eat and sleep. That was tedious, but she could learn how to cook.
“Would you like to eat something cooked by me?” She crawled up and smiled mysteriously at him.
Harry thought that he would rather not eat any of the dishes cooked by a novice green hand, but Lola’s look was filled with expectation and he could hardly say no to her, so he nodded a yes anyway.
His consent set Lola at ease, and she said, “Okay, I will start learning how to cook from Mrs. Du tomorrow.” She then held his arms happily in the silent and late night. These days had been indeed happy and memorable for both of them.
Harry moved closer and pulled her in his arms. She grinned, and then pitched his chin. “What do you want?” she asked.
Harry tried to kiss her, but Lola turned her face away and dodged his kiss.
He then raised one of his eyebrows with interest. Was she playing hard-to-get now?
Seeing that Lola laid still beside him, he also closed his eyes.
Lola snickered mischievously. She had only pretended to sleep, and she didn’t plan on giving him a break that easily also. She whispered some words in his ear.
And then Harry blinked his eyes and clasped Lola’s hands.
She was playing pranks on him, but now he couldn’t get even with her anymore because she was pregnant.
“Lola, if you don’t go to sleep, I’ll throw you down the stairs!” While Harry threatened her, his Adam’s apple kept rolling back and forth, and now became one of the targets of her flirt.
Jean Wen sacrificed herself for family interests. Before her husband divorced her, she made every effort to please him.
“You are inexperienced in bed,” he said coldly.
“You! Give that land to my family, or I won’t agree to divorce,” Jean replied furiously.
“Fine. It is exactly what I am thinking about,” he sneered.
Harry.” She pointed at the closed office door bearing Harry’s name on it.
This made Joey feel anxious; every time Lola had come to the office to find Harry, things happened and went haywire.
“I’ll go and tell him of your arrival, ” answered Joey.
But Lola stopped him, just like she had done several years ago. “There’s no need for that, I’ll go inside myself.”
“Mrs. Si, the president was talking with the general manager of our partnering company, and I had better report your arrival first to be sure it’s okay for you to enter.” He finished the sentence in one single breath.
Lola looked at Joey and sensed that something was odd. She then remembered when she found a woman in Harry’s office back in D City, and that Joey had also had the same reaction back then as he did now.
Just thinking of it made her face turn pale. She stormed in the office and found that a woman was trying to seduce Harry while he was trying to drive her out.
The door then opened.
In the door now stood Lola, with her face twisted in anger and her piercing gaze looking directly at them.
“Honey? Why are you here?” Harry pushed aside the woman who was pressing herself on him and walked over to his wife.
But seeing the look in her eyes, Harry knew for sure she might have misunderstood the whole scene. He turned back and looked coldly at that woman named Ada. “Get out of here, ” he said. “The SL will never partner with the QY company!”
Lola shook away Harry’s hand, put the lunch box in his hands, and then walked up to Ada.
Lola stared at her in disdain; she seemed to have seen Julie in her.
