Chapter 384: The Family of Four Acknowledge Each Other

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

When Pei Jingzhou entered, every step was light. He immediately saw Yaoyao sitting on the carpet.

The heater in the children’s room was very strong. Yaoyao was only wearing a white sweater. As his head drooped, his hair hung loosely. As Pei Jingzhou approached, Yaoyao also heard footsteps. He did not turn around to see who it was and continued to stare out the window in a daze.

Pei Jingzhou said, “Yaoyao.”

When Yaoyao heard this voice, his drooping head slowly raised. He thought that his uncle was here to coax him to dinner, but this time, his voice did not sound like his uncle’s. Instead, it sounded very similar to the other voice in his memory. However, he should not be here…

Yaoyao continued to droop his head and look at the trees outside the French window.

Pei Jingzhou was not surprised to see that the little guy ignored him. He knew that he had been in a bad mental state recently and ignored everyone. He went forward, bent his knees, and squatted down beside Yaoyao. Then, he slowly reached out and gently placed his palm on the top of his head. “What are you looking at?”

This time, the reaction of Yaoyao was even greater than before. He suddenly turned his head. As he turned his head, Pei Jingzhou raised his palm a little to make it easier for him to look at the little guy.

The moment Yaoyao saw that it was Pei Jingzhou, his pupils changed in obvious shock.

Pei Jingzhou suddenly pulled a long face. “Stand up.”

It was unknown if it was because of the bloodline suppression, but Yaoyao really stood up obediently. Even Pei Jingzhou was surprised. Looking at Yaoyao, who was standing in front of him, Pei Jingzhou asked him, “Why aren’t you eating dinner?”

Yaoyao didn’t say anything.

Pei Jingzhou asked, “You’re not hungry?”

Yaoyao nodded.

Pei Jingzhou said, “You have to eat even if you’re not hungry. Besides, this is a necessary dinner in the three meals a day. Does it feel good to be hungry?”

Yaoyao wanted to turn around and ignore Pei Jingzhou to protest against not eating dinner. Thinking so, he did the same. He really turned his back on Pei Jingzhou. Pei Jingzhou looked at the little guy’s angry back and couldn’t help but laugh. “Are you planning to fight to the end?”

Yaoyao ignored him and lowered his head. Seeing this, Pei Jingzhou stood up. “I can’t go against the little kid’s wishes. Since you’re not eating, I’ll leave first.’

Pei Jingzhou stood up and seemed to leave.

Yaoyao thought he would coax him, just like his uncle, until he heard distant footsteps behind him. Yaoyao turned his head and realized that he had left. Yaoyao lowered his head in disappointment. Sad emotions surged in his heart, and he looked like he could cry in the next second.

“Looking for me?”

A voice suddenly came from the other side, scaring Yaoyao. He turned around and was stunned to see the tall figure in front of him. After about seven or eight seconds, Yaoyao slowly raised her head to look at him.

He didn’t leave!!!

He had deliberately made those fading footsteps.

In an instant, the depressed expression on Yaoyao’s face disappeared, replaced by heartfelt joy.

This happiness was even shown on Yaoyao’s face.

Pei Jingzhou leaned over slightly and saw the change in Yaoyao’s mood. He asked gently, “Do you want to go out for dinner with me now?”

Yaoyao hesitated for a moment before slowly raising a hand to Pei Jingzhou. Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows. Normally, if a child reached out a hand to him, he would not understand the reason. But Yaoyao reached out a hand to him, and he immediately understood that he meant to hug him.

Without hesitation, he reached out and held the little guy’s armpit. The weight on his arm made Pei Jingzhou frown. “You haven’t eaten well recently?”

He couldn’t have been lighter. He was at least ten pounds lighter than Youyou.

Yaoyao buried his face in Pei Jingzhou’s shoulder and remained silent. Pei Jingzhou did not ask further. Afraid that the people outside would wait for too long, he carried Yaoyao out first.

Li Xiwu waited anxiously outside. She wanted to go to the children’s room to take a look a few times, but she remembered that Pei Jingzhou had gotten along well with Yaoyao back then. Even if Pei Jingzhou did not persuade Yaoyao, he should have come out.

He hadn’t come out for so long. So they must have been talking. Beside her,

Boyuan comforted her. “There’s been no movement for so long. They must have had a good chat.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Perhaps.”

Seeing that Li Xiwu’s anxious expression had improved, Boyuan was slightly relieved.

Not long after, Pei Jingzhou came out with Yaoyao.

When Li Xiwu saw that Pei Jingzhou had finally come out, she finally heaved a sigh of relief. She noticed that Yaoyao was in Pei Jingzhou’s arms and buried his head in his shoulder. It was an extremely warm scene.

It was a scene of a father and son.

“Sorry to keep you waiting,” Pei Jingzhou said as he walked over with Yaoyao.

Lu Jia smiled and continued, “No, the last soup has just been served. You came out at the right time.” With that, he went over to pull out a chair. “Sit down.”

Pei Jingzhou nodded slightly and turned to look in Li Xiwu’s direction. Seeing that she was walking towards him with Youyou, Pei Jingzhou waited for her to come over before sitting down.

Pei Jingzhou placed Yaoyao beside him. Beside Yaoyao was Youyou and Li Xiwu. The four of them were next to each other.

After everyone sat down, Boyuan clapped her hands and smiled brightly. “There are usually only the three of us at home. Although it’s not cold, it’s definitely not as lively as today. It’s better to have more people. It’s lively enough.”

Li Xiwu continued, “It’s lively with more people. It’s originally a tradition, but modern young people prefer a family of three to live under one roof. They occasionally feel lonely, but most of the time, they feel that it’s just right.” Boyuan winked at Li Xiwu. “You’ve hit the nail on the head.”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. She turned to look at Yaoyao and saw that he was sitting obediently on Pei Jingzhou’s left. There was a Youyou between him and Li Xiwu.

Yaoyao probably sensed Li Xiwu’s gaze and turned to look at her. Then, he silently turned back and lay his hands obediently on the table, continuing to be silent in his own world.

Lu Jia got up and poured red wine for everyone. After pouring the red wine, he thoughtfully poured milk for the three children.

Youyou held her glass of milk and raised it to Little Jingzhe.

Little Jingzhe also raised her glass and took a big sip. Her upper lip was covered in a layer of white.

Youyou turned around and clinked glasses with Yaoyao again. Just as everyone thought that Yaoyao would ignore her, Yaoyao took the milk cup in front of him and reluctantly clinked it with Youyou.

Youyou’s voice was crisp. “Cheers!”

Yaoyao moved his lips as if he wanted to say the same word, but in the end, he didn’t. He silently took a sip of milk.

Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou’s gazes were focused on Yaoyao. The emotions in their eyes were different. What they wanted to know would probably be revealed after dinner. It wasn’t appropriate to raise this topic at the dining table as no one had eaten yet.

But to Li Xiwu, she really couldn’t wait to know what was going on.

At this moment, Boyuan suddenly said to Lu Jia, “Hubby, look. Li You, Mr. Pei, Yaoyao, and Youyou look like a family of four.”

Lu Jia smiled meaningfully. “You don’t say. It does look like a complete family of four.’

Pei Jingzhou looked up and said, “Perhaps it is.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips when she heard this. At first, the meaning of Boyuan’s words was obvious. She deliberately let Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou know that

Yaoyao was the same age as Youyou and had the same birthday.

It was definitely not a coincidence.

Pei Jingzhou and Li Xiwu planned to talk about this seriously after dinner. But now that Boyuan and Lu Jia had started this conversation, it was exactly what she wanted to say.

Seeing that the moment was right, Boyuan cleared her throat. “There were many things I didn’t know before. To confirm them, and to clear my doubts, I had to ask my mother.” At this point, Boyuan turned to look at Li Xiwu. “My mother told me that you were indeed pregnant back then.”

Li Xiwu said softly, “Are you worried that Youyou!s background is unknown?”

“l really did worry,” Boyuan said honestly. “But after asking my mother, 1 stopped worrying because my mother said that you were pregnant with fraternal twins back then.’

With that, Li Xiwu suddenly looked at Boyuan.

Beside her, Pei Jingzhou tightened his grip on the cup..
