Xia Ning heard that and her heart jumped. She stood up and walked to the door immediately.
“Ziming, what’s wrong?”
Qiao Yu was holding his briefcase and standing at the door. His other hand was holding Enoch’s hand. The cold and bossy image of him was completely contrasted by the cute kid on the side.
He saw Xia Ning who came to the door in her pajamas and frowned unconsciously.
“Mummy!” Enoch got out of Qiao Yu’s hand immediately and opened his arms asking Xia Ning for a hug.
Xia Ning was a bit helpless. She bent over and carried him up.
“Asteria…” Zheng Ziming saw the mum and kid so close and could not help but try to stop them.
Xia Ning looked at him and shook her head at him.
“I have something going on today, so I am planning to send Enoch to my mum.” Qiao Yu suddenly said.
Xia Ning took a look at him and nodded without any words.
There was no need for him to tell her about it.
Qiao Yu saw her calm face and continued, “It was Enoch who wanted to see you. He said he won’t be able to see you until tomorrow and was afraid that he will miss you.”
Xia Ning heard that and her face turned soft at once. She patted Enoch on the back gently and said to him with a soft voice, “Mummy will be home tomorrow to play with you.”
“Mummy needs to make a pinky promise with me then.” Enoch raised his pinky.
Xia Ning smiled and reached out hers as well. The two entwined their pinky fingers and made a promise.
“Be good.” Xia Ning put Enoch down and said to Qiao Yu, “Sorry for the trouble.”
“You are too polite. He’s my son as well.” Qiao Yu said calmly.
Xia Ning nodded and did not talk any further. She just looked at Enoch and felt a little guilty.
Zheng Ziming who was next to them was moving his eyes between the two. Ever since this kid appeared, he got all of Asteria’s attention. Qiao Yu definitely put this into his calculation and used his son to approach Asteria.
“Asteria, aren’t you going to the reception? You better get ready and go, otherwise, you will be late.” Zheng Ziming said all of a sudden. He darted a look at Qiao Yu and it was obvious that he was asking them to leave.
But Qiao Yu ignored him and asked Xia Ning, “What reception?”
Xia Ning did not speak, but Zheng Ziming sneered, “What does it have to do with you? None of your business!”
“Mummy, this uncle is so scary!” Enoch looked at Xia Ning as if he was wronged. His big lantern-like eyes began to fill with tears. “He is bullying Daddy!”
“…” He bullied Qiao Yu? Zheng Ziming glared at the tiny boy. What are you talking about? Did this stupid kid complain about him on purpose? It must have been Qiao Yu who taught him to do so!
Xia Ning touched Enoch’s head and said softly, “No, uncle is not bullying daddy. He is just joking.”
“Asteria…” Zheng Ziming looked at Xia Ning unhappily.
Xia Ning shook her head at him. His complaint was rejected.
“It’s getting late. I have to go with Enoch now.” Qiao Yu suddenly said, and took Enoch with him.
“Mummy, see you tomorrow.” Enoch waved at Xia Ning.
Xia Ning reached out and waved too. “See you tomorrow.”
Seeing the father and the son getting into the elevator, Zheng Ziming completely exploded. “I’ve never seen such a shameless person, using a kid as an excuse. Asteria, see, he is so shameless!”
Xia Ning darted a look at him. “How old are you to be mad at a kid?”
“I…” Zheng Ziming pointed at himself. So he was the bad person now?! It was obvious that the father and the son were crossing the line.
When Qiao Yu got down, he called Chen Hong immediately. “Find out what reception Xia Ning is going to tonight. I need to know this in 30 minutes!”
