Xiao Bai rubbed his eyes. “Mummy, I want to sleep.”
If this was her place, Su Qianxun would have carried him to the bedroom right away. However, she was at the Lus’ place now as she turned and looked in the direction of the kitchen.
Shen Lingshuang walked out. “Xiao Bai’s tired?”
Xiao Bai nodded his head before looking at Qianxun. “Mummy, let’s go sleep.”
He then tugged at her hands.
“It’s time for his afternoon nap as well. I’ll leave him to you then, Qianxun.” Shen Lingshuang did not take Qianxun as an outsider at all and left Xiao Bai to her entirely.
Hesitating for a moment, Su Qianxun brought him to his bedroom.
Had she known that this would happen, she would not have brought Xiao Bai out for lunch before sending him back. She should have sent him back before lunch.
That way, she could leave right after Xiao Bai falls asleep for his nap.
Xiao Bai’s room was decorated warmly with sky blue bed sheets and matching wallpapers. There was a book cabinet filled with books and some car models that were mostly collectors editions – that was matching with Xiao Bai’s preferences.
“Mummy, together.” Xiao Bai’s bright eyes were locked on Qianxun such that her heart could not help but melt into a puddle.
Since she was going to stay for dinner, it would take some time before night arrives. If she were to head down after Xiao Bai falls asleep, she wouldn’t know what to chat with Shen Lingshuang about as well. Hence, she just laid down next to Xiao Bai hoping that she would be able to leave right after dinner later.
Yet, there was an uneasy feeling in her heart about spending time alone with Shen Lingshuang.
Shen Lingshuang was no nasty person and she was well known for being friendly, compassionate and besides, her attitude towards her was really good as well.
But why did she feel as though Shen Lingshuang was being… overly friendly?
In any case, she dropped Shi Guang a message thinking that there wouldn’t be any issues if Shi Guang was around and she was having dinner in the capacity of Shi Guang’s friend.
<Qianxun: I’m at the Lus place. Madam Lu insisted on me staying for dinner after I sent Xiao Bai back. Hurry and come over.>
<Shi Guang: I’m not free!> Why should I go when you’re visiting your mother-in-law to be?
<Qianxun: If you don’t come, I’ll be leaving. Why should I be having dinner at the Lus place all alone?>
<Shi Guang: Alright, alright. I’ll head over later.>
Shi Guang’s later was so late that she hadn’t even arrived when dinner was about to start. Qianxun dropped her another text only to receive a reply that she was about to leave.
This was the first time that Qianxun felt that Shi Guang was… unreliable as a person!
Su Qianxun was waiting for someone and so was Shen Lingshuang who was looking at the time consistently. She did not believe that her son would not return. But, this should be long enough for him to head back from the military base to the house – why was he not back yet!
She held Qianxun’s hand and looked at her from head to toe. “Why are you so skinny… you don’t seem so skinny on television!”
“One would appear fatter on screen.”
“Oh, so you’ve got to be skinnier in real life.” Shen Lingshuang frowned. “I still think it’s better for you to not be an actress. It’s too much suffering! For the sake of looking good, you’ve got to endure not eating good food. What if you were to starve your body into illness?”
Su Qianxun did not know what to reply and merely looked at Shen Lingshuang, somewhat exasperated.
“It’s tough being an actress, right?”
“It’s so rare that you’re not haughty at all. How nice.” Shen Lingshuang said as she suddenly spouted out of nowhere. “It must be really tough for you to give birth all alone back then, right?”
