When it was time to pay the bill, Muir came. He immediately walked to the cas.h.i.+er.
“Let me,” Muir said in a deep voice, taking out his wallet.
The salesperson serving them felt even more astonished and gasped. “Oh my G.o.d, are you Muir?”
Muir smiled politely. “Please hurry up and settle the bill.”
“My G.o.d, I’ve seen a celebrity.” The salesperson was overwhelmed with surprise and quickly packed up their items. The cas.h.i.+er also hurried.
During the waiting time, Bai Qingqing got close to Muir and said softly, “I didn’t expect it to still be so troublesome to come out shopping with you even after so many years have pa.s.sed.”
Not able to withstand the enthusiasm from everyone in the country, Muir partic.i.p.ated in another round of the Olympics. At that time, he had restrained himself a lot more and only signed up for four events, getting four gold medals.
He felt that it was very humiliating to compete with humans. However, the citizens were still not satisfied. Later on, he gave the excuse that his physical condition couldn’t keep up and stopped partic.i.p.ating in the Olympics ever since. It had been 13 years since his retirement, but his legendary reputation hadn’t dropped.
“Isn’t it even more troublesome with Parker?” Muir asked helplessly.
Bai Qingqing nodded in recognition. “That’s why I don’t want to come out with him the most. But he always likes to drag me around when he goes shopping.”
Looking at how the two of them communicated with each other intimately, tears suddenly welled up in Bai Zhenbei’s eyes. It was as if they were a family, with a daddy, mommy, and children.
And she was the extra one.
“Mommy~” Bai Zhenbei suddenly ran over, wrapping her arms around Bai Qingqing’s waist.
Bai Qingqing could tell that her daughter’s voice wasn’t right. She lifted her face and realized that there were tears in her eyes.
“What’s the matter? Why are you crying?” she asked even though she knew what was going on, stroking her daughter’s face gently.
Bai Zhenbei was very prideful and refused to cry outside. She forced her tears back and said in a m.u.f.fled voice, “I want to go home. I want daddy.”
Bai Qingqing sneaked a glance at Muir and the three brothers’ expressions. They weren’t sad, but they were also definitely not happy.
Before she could say anything, Muir spoke up first. “Bring Huahua back first. I’ll go back after buying clothes for the children.”
“But…” Bai Qingqing began to speak but hesitated. This was too aggrieving for Muir and their children. In the outside world, she couldn’t be with them openly, but at home, did she still have to act as if they were strangers because of Huahua?
Maybe she should tell Huahua the truth. But at her current age, would she be able to accept it?
“Mommy.” Bai Zhenbei blinked her wet eyes and looked at Bai Qingqing pleadingly.
“Huahua, be good. Let’s accompany your older brothers to shop for stuff.” Bai Qingqing coaxed gently.
Bai Zhenbei was surprisingly stubborn today. She didn’t cry but said in a firm tone, “I want to go back! Go back!”
Bai Qingqing’s face sank, and Bai Zhenbei didn’t dare to speak up anymore. However, tears continued to gather in her eyes.
Mu Ya walked over and pushed their mommy out. “Sister is tired. You guys can go back first. It’ll be fine with daddy to shop with us for our stuff.”
“I’m not your sister! My mommy isn’t your mommy!” Bai Zhenbei suddenly screamed, then sat on the floor and finally burst out in tears.
Bai Qingqing was given a fright by her daughter’s reaction. This was the first time Huahua had cried outside after she was old enough to be sensible. Usually, even if she was at home, she’d rarely cry too. To think that she had sat down on the floor now. She had never reacted like this before.
“Huahua,” Bai Qingqing raised her arm but failed to lift her.
Many people looked over, casting all sorts of judgmental glances at them, especially on Bai Qingqing.
