The Queen of Everything - Chapter 956
The boy turned his head, anger flashing across his face.
Little Su Cha could not understand what was happening.
She stared blankly at Bo Muyi and then looked at her father.
Zong Yanxiu walked over, wiped little Su Cha’s mouth clean, and took the remaining beef with sauce away. She instantly pouted. He said, “You don’t trust me. Do you think I will betray you? I’ve said my surname is Zong. You will know who I am once you investigate. You can only investigate the matter regarding your parents after you’ve returned to the Imperial Capital. Even if you stay here, it will be useless. You can’t do anything. Instead, you will make your grandfather worry.”
Perhaps this sentence touched Bo Muyi. He turned around and looked at Zong Yanxiu, his eyes filled with despair.
Zong Yanxiu could not bear to see this.
He knew that Bo Muyi was afraid that once his whereabouts were exposed, the people who’d harmed his parents would continue to attack him. He was thus unwilling to tell Zong Yanxiu the truth. Subconsciously, he wanted to stay here for some time.
But it was impossible for him not to go back.
“I’ve already informed your grandfather. He’ll send someone to pick you up soon. You’ll return to the capital safely. Don’t worry.”
Little Su Cha, who was listening at the side, finally reacted. When she heard him say that Bo Muyi would be returning to the capital, she probably realized that her father wanted her big brother to leave.
“Daddy, why are you asking Brother to leave?”
Although they had only known each other for a few days, little Su Cha already had Bo Muyi in her heart.
Most importantly, he was good-looking.
The young boy seemed to realize something. He grabbed little Su Cha’s arm and asked seriously, “What about you guys? Are you going back?”
Zong Yanxiu seemed a little surprised. “We’re not going back. Also, don’t tell anyone about us being here when you get back. Just pretend that you’ve never seen us before.”
It was already unbelievable that they were fated to meet. He never would have thought that he would be able to save the heir of the Bo family from such a far distance.
Bo Muyi lowered his hand, seemingly disappointed.
Realizing that Bo Muyi was about to leave, little Su Cha was a little reluctant. When she went to bed that night, she lay down and grabbed Bo Muyi’s arm. “Big Brother, are you leaving?”
As there were no extra rooms here, Bo Muyi slept with little Su Cha. However, Zong Yanxiu also slept in the same room, but on a different bed.
The boy’s calm voice came from the darkness. “Soon.”
“Where are you going?”
The capital was a foreign term to little Su Cha. “What kind of place is that? Are there mountains and rivers? Or is it a place with very tall buildings?”
“Not a good place.”
He’d said it softly.
Little Su Cha was puzzled. “Then why are you going back?”
Bo Muyi remained silent.
Suddenly, he reached out and caressed little Su Cha’s chubby face. He whispered, “I will bring you back to the capital city. You can attend kindergarten in the capital city. You will accompany me, okay?”
“Sure! Take Daddy with you too!”
Little Su Cha, who had always looked only at faces, answered readily.
Zong Yanxiu, who was lying on the next bed, reprimanded in a low voice, “Stop fooling around. Xiao Cha, Brother Bo is going somewhere far away. He’s not joking.”
He seemed to be reminding her of something.
Little Su Cha did not make a sound. She pursed her lips. As the lights were off, she could not see Bo Muyi’s face. Without making another sound, she soon fell asleep.
