When Wen Jianing woke up the next morning, Lu Jinlang was still asleep. He drank too much last night and slept deeply on his pillow.
He reached out and touched Lu Jinlang’s hair. Wen Jianing buried his head in his hair and kissed the side of his face before getting up from the bed.
He came down from the second floor and went into the kitchen. Suddenly he wanted to prepare breakfast for Lu Jinlang so that Lu Jinlang could have something to eat after he woke up.
As for cooking, Wen Jianing didn’t say that he couldn’t do it at all. But it was true that he was not good at it. He put on an apron, poured oil into the pot to prepare an omelette, and suddenly heard the doorbell rang outside.
He took the spatula and went out to open the door, and saw that the person standing outside turned out to be Lu Jinxin.
Actually, this scene was a bit familiar. Lu Jinxin looked like he was catching adulterers, but Wen Jianing was very calm and wondered, “What’s the matter with you?”
Lu Jinxin said, “Is Lu Jinlang here? He kept turning off the phone when I called him.”
Wen Jianing said, “He hasn’t gotten up yet.”
Lu Jinxin pushed him aside, entered the door and ran upstairs.
When Wen Jianing wanted to catch up, he suddenly remembered that the fire in the kitchen hadn’t been turned off. So he hurriedly went to turn off the fire, and then ran up to the second floor.
Lu Jinlang was awakened by Lu Jinxin at this time. He drank too much wine yesterday and came back to make a mess of Wen Jianing for a while. Now he was not awake yet. He sat on the bed with his naked body, reached out his hand and rubbed his head, and asked in a stuffy voice, “What are you doing here early in the morning?”
When Lu Jinxin looked at him like this, he suddenly got angry, grabbed the clothes next to him and threw them on him, “Get your clothes ready and go down with me.”
Lu Jinlang asked him, “Go down to do what?”
Lu Jinxin said, “You help me watch Tongtong for a few days.”
Lu Jinlang shook his head awkwardly, “Did you bring Tongtong here again?”
Lu Jinxin urged him, “Hurry up, Tongtong is still waiting in the car alone!”
Wen Jianing walked in upon seeing this.
When Lu Jinxin saw him, he pointed his finger at him and said, “What are you doing? Put the spatula down!”
Wen Jianing felt nervous, put the spatula aside, and said to Lu Jinxin, “I’ll go down with you and take Tongtong first. He drank too much last night, and he hasn’t sobered up yet.”
Lu Jinxin hesitated. He looked back and saw that Lu Jinlang hadn’t put on his clothes yet. Then he thought of his son who was locked in the car by himself, so he said to Wen Jianing, “Go!”
He took Wen Jianing to pick up Tongtong. He didn’t ask Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang what was going on. Whether the two of them were getting back together or not, Lu Jinxin was not in the mood to investigate them. His own life was still a mess these days.
Wen Jianing asked him, “You secretly brought your son out again?”
Lu Jinxin walked forward and said with a cold face, “That woman wants to take her son directly out of the country. I don’t want him to harass my mother and elder brother and sister in law. She can’t find Tongtong at the third child’s side.”
Wen Jianing couldn’t help asking, “How long are you going to let the child hide?”
”It won’t be for long,” Lu Jinxin said. “When the court decides and she dares to approach Tongtong in the future, I will call the police directly.”
Wen Jianing wanted to say that even if the court granted the child’s custody to him, it was impossible to forbid a mother’s visit to her son, but seeing Lu Jinxin’s irritable appearance, he didn’t say anything.
Lu Jinxin opened the car door and carried Tongtong down. Tongtong first grasped the back of the chair and refused to get down, but when he turned around and saw Wen Jianing, he suddenly changed his mind and stretched out his hand to let Wen Jianing carry him.
Wen Jianing held the boy in his arms.
Lu Jinxin reached out his hand and wiped his son’s nose. After a moment of silence, he said to Wen Jianing, “Thank you, help me watch him for two days.”
Wen Jianing said, “I will take care of him.”
Lu Jinxin got into the car and couldn’t help but say to Wen Jianing before closing the door, “What are you doing with Lu Jinlang?”
Wen Jianing told him with certainty this time, “We are together.”
”Together?” Lu Jinxin inevitably took a sarcastic tone when he heard him.
Wen Jianing said calmly, “At least it’s more serious than between you and your wife.”
Lu Jinxin couldn’t find anything to say at the moment. He could have said that he still at least had a son. Can they have one? But now it had come to this way, even he had to secretly bring the son to hide him. It didn’t seem to be something to be proud of.
He raised his hand and then started the car, and said, “Whatever you say.”
Since he didn’t believe they would work out, he let time be the judge. Just like when he married his wife, he never thought that there would be today.
When Lu Jinxin left, Wen Jianing took Tongtong back to the room on the second floor. He saw Lu Jinlang lying down and sleeping again. He didn’t know how much Lu Jinlang heard of Lu Jinxin just now.
Wen Jianing closed the door and said to Tongtong, “Have you had breakfast?”
Tongtong shook his head.
Wen Jianing then said, “Then I will make breakfast for you, and then we’ll go out, okay?”
Tongtong replied, “Okay.”
He fried three eggs in the end, one for each of them, and the one for Lu Jinlang was put on a plate with a bowl and put on the dining table.
Wen Jianing originally told Ke Xinfan yesterday that he would go to see him at night, but because of yesterday’s dinner party, he could not go there. The first thing to do this morning was to see Ke Xinfan in the hospital, and he took Tongtong along the way.
When he arrived at the hospital, Ke Xinfan was having breakfast, and his body had gradually recovered and he was able to get out of bed and walk around slowly.
When he saw Wen Jianing show up with a little boy, Ke Xinfan said, “You didn’t come here last night. Did you give birth to a son?”
Wen Jianing knew that he liked to say something bad to stimulate him, so he didn’t respond, just asked how he was recovering.
”Not bad,” Ke Xinfan said while moving his shoulder a bit.
Wen Jianing sat down by the bed and said to him, “When you are discharged from the hospital, I will go with you to sweep the grave for our parents.”
Ke Xinfan glanced at him, “You sure? I thought you didn’t acknowledge me as your own brother, let alone your parents.”
In fact, by going back with Ke Xinfan, one thing Wen Jianing might have to face was that Ke Xinfan discovered that he didn’t know anything about Ke Xinhang in the past. But as long as he didn’t admit it, Ke Xinfan could not even imagine that a soul has been changed in his brother’s shell even if he were to break his head.
He didn’t know what Ke Xinfan planned, but he could feel that Ke Xinfan still cared for Ke Xinhang. He hoped to use this feeling as a weight to let Ke Xinfan completely dispel the idea of using his body as a threat to him.
When Wen Jianing talked to Ke Xinfan, Tongtong always looked at Ke Xinfan with his big eyes open.
Ke Xinfan was watched by him for a long time and said impatiently, “What’s your son doing staring at me?”
Wen Jianing said, “He is not my son.”
Ke Xinfan suddenly stretched out his hand to Tongtong and said, “Come here and let uncle have a look.”
When Tongtong heard what he said, he actually walked over to Ke Xinfan.
Ke Xinfan raised his hand and touched his head, then squeezed his face and smiled at him.
They came out of the hospital, and Wen Jianing drove Tongtong to a big supermarket on the road. He was wearing a cap and sunglasses. He carried Tongtong out of the car and held his hand as he walked into the supermarket. In fact, this did not stop people from recognising him, but on the contrary, this kind of outfit always stood out, but one advantage was that when someone asked him if he was Ke Xinhang, he could just tell them that he was not, because no one would have to take off his glasses to see.
Wen Jianing took Tongtong to the supermarket and called Lu Jinlang at the same time.
Lu Jinlang was finally awake at this time. When Wen Jianing called and asked him what he was doing, he said, “Eating your love eggs.”
Wen Jianing smiled and asked, “Is it delicious?”
Lu Jinlang suggested, “I think it can be fried a little tender.”
Wen Jianing said, “I’ll fry it like that next time. What would you like to eat at noon? I’m shopping in the supermarket now.”
Lu Jinlang chuckled and asked him, “Who’s cooking”
Wen Jianing smiled and said, “Of course you.”
Lu Jinlang then said, “Buy whatever you want. I can cook anything with what you bought.”
The phone hung up, Wen Jianing squatted down to help Tongtong tidy up his collar, and said to him, “Just go get whatever you want, okay?”
When he came out of the supermarket, he put two plastic bags in the car first and then carried Tongtong to the car.
On the opposite street, a paparazzi was secretly taking pictures with a camera. Wen Jianing noticed it but didn’t pay attention to them. After they got into the car, he helped Tongtong fasten his belt completely before slowly starting the car.
At noon, Tongtong was watching TV on the sofa outside, while Lu Jinlang was cooking in the kitchen, and Wen Jianing was next to him.
He seemed to have no energy and his hair was dishevelled. He asked lazily, “When did Tongtong come?”
Wen Jianing cut the vegetables clumsily. He stared at the plate carefully and said, “Don’t you know your brother came this morning?”
”I know,” Lu Jinlang yawned, “But I don’t know he brought Tongtong here.”
In fact, Lu Jinxin clearly mentioned it to him, but he was so dazed at that time and didn’t remember what Lu Jinxin said.
Wen Jianing stopped, looked up and said, “It’s still because of the divorce. Once two people have no feelings left, they can do anything even if they have to tear each other’s faces off.”
Lu Jinlang walked over and hugged him from behind, covering his left hand with his left hand, and holding his right hand with his right hand to hold the kitchen knife firmly, correcting his movements, and said, “My second sister in law is the one who started first. She already had someone out there for a long time.”
”Your second brother is not innocent either,” Wen Jianing said.
Lu Jinlang didn’t refute, he held Wen Jianing’s hand and cut the potatoes into shreds with him, and finally said, “So, let him suffer by himself.”
Wen Jianing agreed with him, “I just pity the child.”
Lu Jinlang let go of his hand, changed his position to hug him, kissed him on the ear, and said, “Come home with me someday.”
”Huh?” Wen Jianing stopped and turned his head slightly.
”Are you afraid?” Lu Jinlang asked him.
Wen Jianing said, “I’m not afraid.” By now, he really didn’t feel scared.
Lu Jinlang smiled, “Don’t be afraid, before that, I will go to my mother to confess.” He said that, after a short pause, he added, “But my mother is not scary. My second brother is also fierce but weak. The most frightening one is my eldest brother.”
Wen Jianing asked, “Is your eldest brother Lu Jinfeng?”
Lu Jinlang “Huh?” He gulped, “Do you know him?”
Wen Jianing smiled and said, “Of course I have heard that. In fact, I’ve always guessed whether he has something to do with being your brother.”
Of the three brothers of the Lu family, the eldest was in politics, the second was in business, and the third was someone famous in the entertainment industry. Now Wen Jianing had a clear picture of Lu Jinlang’s family background.
Although Lu Jinxin looked fierce, his own life was in a mess. At best, he would just say a few harsh words to Lu Jinlang on the surface, and he wouldn’t really interfere. But Lu Jinfeng was different. Lu Jinfeng was a stereotypical and serious man who brought Lu Jinlang up since he was a child, and he certainly wouldn’t easily agree with the relationship between Lu Jinlang and Wen Jianing.
Lu Jinlang didn’t worry about anyone else, he was just worried that his elder brother would come forward to stop him. He hugged Wen Jianing tightly and said, “It’s okay, I won’t let you be wronged.”
