Chapter 294: Happy Times For The Family of Four~
Warren was so troubled that he tugged at his hair again and pulled out a few more strands.
In the room next door.
Yvonne listened to the voices coming from the monitoring device. She had hacked into Warren’s phone and was eavesdropping on his conversation.
When she heard the other party say that they couldn’t find the bug and so couldn’t pinpoint the cause either, the corners of her lips curled into a smile.
Of course, they wouldn’t be able to find the cause.
Because it was her newly created virus. She had planted the virus when she was repairing the game server earlier that day. She was the only one who could resolve the virus.
She went through her skincare routine leisurely, opening a bottle of expensive body lotion and spreading it carefully on herself.
Even a wealthy young lady’s skin required meticulous care.
She tilted her head. Sure enough, a short while later, she heard Maureen’s voice. “Why don’t we go to Yvonne after all, Warren?”
So what even if Maureen was arrogant? Didn’t she have to bow down to her all the same in the end?
Nora, who had taken Cherry out with her, was having dinner with Justin and Pete in a private room.
The family of four sat together. When Cherry and Pete sat facing each other, it was as if they were looking at a mirror. When Justin looked at the children, he couldn’t help but marvel. “Why does this pair of boy-girl twins look exactly the same? They look too much like each other. Boy-girl twins are supposed to be fraternal twins. Are there any medical case studies where boy-girl twins look really alike?”
Nora shook her head. “I’ve never seen any. Boy-girl twins are just like normal brothers and sisters. Outsiders may not be able to tell them apart at a glance, but their parents will definitely be able to see some differences, yet Cherry and Pete look pretty much identical. But once they grow up, and Pete’s characteristics as a boy and Cherry’s characteristics as a girl become obvious, they won’t look so similar anymore.”
Justin breathed a sigh of relief. He was really afraid that the two children would still look exactly the same even after they grew up. Now, that would be really strange.
He touched Cherry’s head, who was sitting next to him, and looked at Nora. Then, as if he was reminiscing about the past, he said, “You know, I almost thought Pete was a pervert prior to this.”
Pete, who was eating: “?”
He silently lifted his head and looked at the tyrant with a frown.
He sure knew how to pick a conversation topic just to get Mommy to say a few more words. While he was despising him, wasn’t he also despising his own IQ?
The corners of his lips spasmed a little. When he was about to speak, Nora asked, “Oh. Why’s that?”
Justin coughed and said, “Pete suddenly became really girly, so I thought there was something psychologically wrong with him, and asked a family doctor to do a psychological test for him. The results indicated that he was a girl at heart.”
Nora looked down at Pete. The picture of a shocked Justin formed in her mind, and she couldn’t help but smile.
He looked at Cherry with a confused look on his face. When had the psychological test taken place?
Cherry was also bewildered. She looked at Justin puzzledly and asked, “When did you make me take the psychological test, Daddy?”
When Justin brought up the events in the hotel in California, Cherry was suddenly enlightened. She exclaimed, “Ah, so that was a psychological test! I’d thought it was an IQ test!”
So, when Cherry had said so confidently that their father made her take an IQ test and the results turned out super high—and Daddy was so satisfied that he couldn’t even say anything—she was actually talking about a psychological test?
The corners of his lips spasmed a little. Only then did he realize just what kind of terrible situation Cherry had put him in back then!
He looked at Cherry. “What about the history trivia and all that?”
Cherry replied proudly, “My history is really great. You can ask Daddy if you don’t believe me!”
Pete looked at Justin, who coughed and said, “It’s pretty good.”
He didn’t believe him anymore, though, so he looked at Nora. Nora’s lips curled into a smile and she said, “Yeah, it’s pretty good. Who invented the first car?”
“Harrison Ford!” Cherry answered right away!
His pride and dignity of being a high IQ genius had all been destroyed by Cherry!!
With that as a conversation topic, Nora started to talk more than usual. Besides, she also wanted to know about her son.
Justin slowly started to talk about all the things Pete did when he was younger. He said, “… He drives his private tutors mad with anger. When he was two, the tutor told them the story about the three little pigs, and asked the children who they wanted to be—the eldest, the second, or the third pig? All the children said that they wanted to be the third pig because only hardworking people can build a sturdy house. When the tutor asked Pete the same question, what do you think he said?”
Nora shook her head.
Justin chuckled and said, “He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want to be a pig. I want to be a human being’.”
This was the first time in Nora’s life that she laughed out loud so happily. She hadn’t expected her disciplined and rigid son to have such cute and funny moments when he was younger.
The look in Justin’s eyes became a little infatuated when he saw her laugh.
The woman’s eyelids were always drooping when she wasn’t smiling, which made her look as if she was half-asleep. However, the angle of her lip corners was just right in this instant when she was laughing, and her eyes also looked brighter than usual.
He hurriedly retracted his gaze and took a sip of water to suppress the itch in his throat.
This was the first time they were having a meal so happily as a family of four.
Even Nora wasn’t gobbling down her food like she usually did. In fact, after she was done eating, she even sat there and listened to him talk about all the embarrassing things Pete did as a child.
Time flew by. In the blink of an eye, it was nine o’clock.
The children had to go to bed, so Justin sent Nora and Pete back to the Smiths. After they reached, he tried to ask her out on a date. “Shall we go to Universal Studios on the weekend?”
Cherry immediately clapped. “Yes, yes! Daddy’s the best!”
Justin looked at Nora.
Nora wanted to refuse so that she could sleep, but perhaps because the atmosphere that evening was simply so great, or perhaps because the night was getting dark, she hesitated when she saw the longing looks on the children’s faces, as well as Justin’s dark eyes. A moment later, she nodded.
After Justin left with Cherry, Nora took Pete into the Smiths’ manor.
As soon as they entered, Mia rushed over and hugged Pete. “Cherry, why did you come back so late? Let’s go and sleep together?”
Pete had only slept on the same bed with Nora and Justin before. When he heard Mia’s words, he froze and stammered, “N-no, it’s okay…”
“Why?” Mia looked at him timidly. “Don’t you like me?”
Pete didn’t have the slightest bit of resistance to the look in her eyes. “Of course, I do!” he said.
“Then let’s go!”
With that, Mia dragged Pete away.
She didn’t refuse, either.
First of all, the children were only five. Besides, they actually counted as cousins, right? It was okay even if they slept together.
She went upstairs leisurely. Before she entered her bedroom, she spotted Maureen sitting on the sofa in the lounge on the second floor.. She was sighing.
