Chapter 105 - Daddy, Actually You Have A Daughter
Nora turned around, intending to return to the car.
But before she could get in, Scarface cried out fiercely, "You can't do that! There are too many people in the scene who want him dead!"
Nora paused. She suddenly looked back and asked, "What did you say?"
Scarface replied, "We have a chat group where we take on missions. Over the years, quite a few missions to kill the Hunts' little mister have been issued every once in a while! There are a lot of people after his life, and there are also a lot of people who've accepted the missions! While we were lying in ambush here, we've already encountered four to five other groups coming here for him…"
She had no idea that her son was actually living in such an environment ever since he was a baby!
It must be a miracle that he managed to reach five years of age safely!
A sullen Nora asked, "Can you find out who issued the missions?"
The woman had already thoroughly investigated his background and found out who his family members were. For his wife's sake, Scarface didn't dare to lie. He replied truthfully, "Mr. Hunt is a very well-known man. At the same time, he has also made a lot of enemies in the business world, so who can really say for sure?"
His words rendered Nora lost for words.
A brief moment later, she said, "Well, just remember what I told you just now."
Had he said all that in vain?
The men could only watch helplessly as Nora got into the car and drove away. They huddled together and asked, "What do we do now, Boss?"
Scarface shouted angrily, "What else can we do? Continue to lay in ambush, of course!"
"Are we going to look for another opportunity to kill him?"
Scarface smacked him on the head and snapped, "Yeah, right! It's so that we can protect the little Mr. Hunt, of course! If anything happens to him, I won't let any of you off!"
Nora didn't hear how their discussion went. After making another turn, she suddenly stopped the car and hopped into the backseat from in between the driver seat and the passenger seat.
Cherry asked, "… What's the matter, Mommy?"
Nora grabbed her bag and took out some cosmetics. She said, "Let's not tell your Daddy the truth for now. It's too dangerous. After thinking about it, I decided that we'll just smuggle your brother out someday and go abroad together and be done with it."
The corners of Cherry's lips spasmed.
So, did Mommy get a bad impression of Daddy again after hearing that he had a lot of enemies?
At the villa.
Pete had been very excited ever since he received a text message from Cherry half an hour ago, saying that they were going to be reunited as a family that day.
After much thought, he decided that he had to give the tyrant a warning first, lest he got too worked up and did something inappropriate.
Thus, after a short internal struggle, Pete went to Justin's study.
With a very serious look on his face, the little fellow said to Justin, "Daddy, I have something to tell you."
Justin was currently looking at the mirror and adjusting his clothes. Did the black suit make him seem a little old?
But wouldn't a white suit make him look too frivolous?
Dark colors suited him better after all…
Which tie should he use?
In the midst of his internal struggle, upon hearing Pete, he raised his eyebrows and asked, "What is it?"
Pete kept quiet for a moment. Then, he finally said, "Actually, you have a daughter."
He turned his head abruptly to see Pete staring at him seriously.
Father and son stared at each other for a long while before Justin finally asked, "Oh? Where is she?"
Pete replied, "You'll meet her very soon."
Practically right after he said that, his cell phone beeped.
Pete looked down and glanced at it—it was an audio message from Cherry. Her young, tender voice rang out in his earphones: "Mommy says she doesn't want to tell Daddy anymore, Pete. Don't accidentally reveal anything, okie?"
His tiny form stiffened for a moment. Then, he slowly raised his head and saw that…
The tyrant was staring at him silently.
He was staring at him silently…
He was still staring at him…
A few seconds later, Pete suddenly tilted his head and tried his best to imitate Cherry. He said, "Daddy, look at me. Am I cute? Aren't I adorable? Do I look like a little girl?"
Justin was utterly bewildered.
His son's personality change had been invisible and sporadic previously, but he had actually personally witnessed him switching from a taciturn personality to a cute and adorable one this time. He felt like he was about to have a mental breakdown.
If one were to visualize how he currently felt using an emoji, then it would definitely be a face that was split down the middle in two…
Rows and rows of it…
Pete quietly turned and walked away. He heaved a long and heavy sigh.
Life was simply too hard!
At his young age, he was shouldering a burden that one his age shouldn't be shouldering!
The doorbell suddenly rang. Before Pete could do anything, he saw the tyrant walk over quickly. However, he didn't open the door immediately when he reached it. Instead, he tidied his clothes a little before he finally opened the door. There was even a smile on his face.
It must be Ms. Smith at the door…
… Or so Justin thought. Instead, he saw a surprised and flattered Chester standing outside. "You're actually opening the door for me, Justin?"
With a look of displeasure, he asked, "Why are you here?"
Chester beamed and replied, "It's your birthday today, so I specially came over to celebrate it with you!"
Justin stepped aside to let him in. Chester entered the house and placed the gift in the hallway.
In the kitchen, Sean and the others were preparing lunch.
After all, they had told Ms. Smith the day before that it was a 'birthday party', so they couldn't have no one else around.
A while later, the doorbell rang again.
Chester, who liked running errands the most, ran over to open the door.
Seeing that he had gone over, Justin remained on the sofa, though his ears perked up. However, when he looked at the door out of the corner of his eye, he saw Tina York coming in instead. She exuded a mature charm all over as she stood there gracefully and said, "Happy birthday, Mr. Hunt."
Justin's expression darkened even further. "What are you doing here?"
Tina's fists balled up a little, but the next moment, she asked graciously, "Is it inconvenient for me to be here?"
Typically, the host would never drive anyone out when they came bearing birthday gifts, right?
But as soon as she said that, she heard Justin replying coldly, "Yes, it certainly is."
Chester could sense Justin's displeasure. Knowing that he was the one who had let her in, he smiled awkwardly and said, "Everyone here tonight is male, Ms. York. It is indeed inconvenient when you're the only woman here…"
In other words, please have some self-awareness and leave after leaving the gift behind!
However, Tina acted as if she didn't understand what he meant and said, "It's okay. We pretty much grew up together, so you can just think of me as a guy."
After speaking, she went straight to the kitchen.
At this point, the doorbell rang again.
Tina ran over and opened the door while saying, "I'll get it."
However, when she opened the door, she saw Nora's pretty face. Tina's expression immediately darkened. She took a couple of steps out, lowered her voice, and demanded, "Why are you here?"
She raised her eyebrows. "Why can't I be here?"
Tina immediately replied, "There's still a certain difference in status between the Andersons and the Hunts, Ms. Smith. I'd advise you to stop daydreaming. Also… Mr. Hunt has said that it's not convenient to host female guests at home today. Please leave!"
After saying that, she immediately took a step back and closed the door!
Inside, Justin, who didn't see anyone coming in, asked, "Who was it?"
"Oh," Tina smiled gently and said, "It's nothing.. The building management staff came to wish you a happy birthday, but they said that they won't enter in case they disturb you."
