Chapter 1625: Going Overseas
As Mu Ya spoke, he sized her up. Seeing that there weren’t any signs of injuries, he felt relieved.
Moisture welled up in Shen Yin’s eyes, and she sounded like she was about to cry. “He took away the money in the shop… I made up for it with the money I earned from my part-time job previously and didn’t touch our revenue.”
“Silly!” Mu Ya felt a mixture of heartache and anger. “I’m on holiday now and can accompany you for a month. When he comes again, I’ll be sure to boot him out!”
If that person weren’t Shen Yin’s father, he really wanted to beat him up.
Shen Yin nodded and hugged his waist, finally feeling grounded.
Since Mu Ya was on holiday, the other students were naturally on holiday as well. The shop quickly filled up with customers.
The two of them started getting busy. Only when there were fewer people in the shop did Shen Yin realize a car was parked outside.
“G.o.dfather is here.” Shen Yin ran to his side and tugged at his clothes.
Mu Ya gazed outside, pinched her cheeks, and said, “He’s here to pick us up. Have you packed the luggage?”
“All packed up,” replied Shen Yin.
Mu Ya said, “I’ll go get it. Prepare to close the shop.”
After closing the shop, Mu Ya stuck a piece of white paper on the entrance, on which black words were printed: Closed for business for a month during the winter break. Wis.h.i.+ng everyone a happy new year!
The next day, the Bai family boarded three cars and drove out of the city in a row.
After more than ten years of development, Qingqing Zoo had given rise to many related businesses. Specialty shops and hotels had been built beside the zoo. Even the ground that used to be strewn with stray rocks was now covered with greenery.
The baby eagle only had a desire to fly, but his feathers weren’t yet big enough.
Every day, he would flop and jump around like a large pheasant. He was already flying very well. When his feathers were plentiful, he would be able to spread his wings and soar into the skies.
Shen Yin loved accompanying her child. At the start, she would only talk with Mu Ya and her child. Slowly, she integrated into the Bai family and started becoming more chatty.
Perhaps soon, she would be able to converse naturally with strangers.
Bai Qingqing’s temperament had mellowed, and she was no longer as playful as before. Instead, she liked to watch the kids play, especially the newly-born baby eagle. Every time she looked at him, her expression would be conflicted.
“Sigh… I’m already a grandmother!” As Bai Qingqing slowly rode on the swing and watched the baby eagle, she actually blurted out such a statement.
The four males didn’t feel much. Pus.h.i.+ng her on the swing from time to time, Parker said, “Isn’t this normal? When we had kids, my mother was also very young.”
“But humans only become grandmothers when they’re old.” Bai Qingqing was too deep for tears as she turned around and hugged his waist.
Winston and Curtis were sitting while leaning against a big tree each, while Muir was perched on a tree branch. After hearing their mate’s words, the four males sunk into deep thought.
“Perhaps, we should prepare to leave.”
Curtis suddenly said, “Humans turn old very quickly. If we stay any longer, it might arouse suspicions.”
Bai Qingqing nodded in agreement. “Besides, I really don’t feel like putting on makeup anymore. When other people wear makeup, they do it to make themselves look younger. For me, I actually have to make myself look more mature and older. You males won’t be able to understand that kind of pain.”
Winston remembered her words in his heart.
“When Huahua becomes of age, we’ll go overseas and live under a different ident.i.ty,” said Winston. There were another seven years, sufficient time for him to s.h.i.+ft his influence to a different place.
“Go overseas? Sounds good. Which country?” It was rare for Bai Qingqing to be so excited as when she was younger. Her gaze went back and forth between her mates.
Mu Ya instantly suggested, “Somewhere with few people and lots of plants.”
