“No!” Xunuo hugged his arms even more tightly and pressed them against her chest even more. “Daddy, if I sleep alone, bad people will hit me. I’m scared…”
“Yes! Did you leave after waiting for me to fall asleep in the past few days?” Xunuo’s eyes turned red and tears welled up in her eyes. Her pitiful look left Ye Ningyuan secretly cursing himself as to why he bullied her. Whatever she said was whatever she said, and he ought to yield to her in everything. “Beautiful sister said that Daddy was busy and very tired at the end of each day, so I must be on my best behavior every night and can’t cry lest I startle Daddy. If Daddy is too tired, he will fall sick. Xunuo does not want Daddy to fall sick like me, but…”
She sniffed and tears fell. “But I’m afraid and do not dare to sleep. Big sister told me that Daddy would look for me once the sun rises, and she did not lie to me, so I… did not dare to disturb Daddy at night. Could you just let me sleep here? I really dare not sleep by myself.”
“Okay, okay, okay, whatever you say then. Please don’t cry. I’ll promise you anything,” Ye Ningyuan said. As he said that, he regretted it. Why did he agree to anything whenever she sounded petulant and afraid of everything? Why did he even agree when she was clearly afraid of disturbing him for fear he would also fall sick? Why did he even agree to promise her anything when she was in tears? Was it simply to just cajole her into smiling?
At this moment, he would agree to whatever Xunuo said.
He took some serviettes and wiped away her tears. He could not bear to see her teary-eyed and a deep sense of pity welled up from the bottom of his heart. His accommodating gaze became angry. He would make whoever made her this despondent and upset pay a hundredfold, with no mercy.
Xunuo continued hugging his arm to sleep, and his palm was about to touch her… She knew nothing. Ye Ningyuan tried to pull his arm away, but Xunuo did not allow it. “Be good. Snuggle into Daddy’s embrace and sleep.”
He then gently propped her head onto his arm. While this posture was still safe, it was as though they were lovers. Xunuo, however, would hug him to sleep. Hugging her head to sleep was the best way out for them in this case.
A gentle fragrance lingered around him. He realized that he had difficulty ignoring the fragrance. He had as much difficulty ignoring how her tender body intimately snuggled itself in his embrace and how her tender mounds rubbed against his chest as she naughtily moved. Ye Ningyuan breathed deeply…
It was one heck of a torture…
An Xunuo wrapped her arm around his waist and sweetly smiled. “Daddy, please do not call me a bore or dislike me, okay?”
“You’re not vexing at all, and I will not dislike you either.”
“Yay!” She sounded fortunate and happy as he hugged him and fell asleep, satisfied. Ye Ningyuan wondered. If she were somebody else but Xunuo, would he still act as such?
He absolutely yielded to her and gave her whatever she wanted unconditionally. He once and again breached his own bottom line and allowed her into his space.
If she were somebody else, would he still be as such?
He smiled. How could it be possible!
He wanted to dote on Xunuo, but this adoration was different as compared to Xu Xing and seemed somewhat different. While he could not quite put a finger on what was different, he felt that it was clearly different. He could not bear to see her cry and really did not want to see her cry. When he saw her tears, he would give her whatever she wanted, just like now.
She finally fell asleep in his embrace. He was also tired after a long night of agony but could not ignore her. There was also this very gentle tension that seemed to be striving to keep something in check.
Ah, forget it. He could start strengthening his forbearance from today.
The next morning, his biological clock accurately woke him up at seven. When he woke up, he saw her looking at him with her beady eyes, blinking as though there was something that she could not comprehend.
“What’s happened? Is there something on your face?” Ye Ningyuan touched his face and secretly wondered. Oh, no! He forgot to wear his mask! To wear the mask for twenty hours a day left his face itchy, and he would remove it when he slept at night. Since Xunuo was crying the night before, she did not observe him closely. After waking up this morning, she observed that her daddy’s face seemed different.
“Daddy, are you a superman with many faces?” Xunuo rested on his chest as she naughtily kneaded his face to figure out which one was her daddy. She seemed to be thinking hard.
The ‘superman with many faces’ Ye Ningyuan was at a loss. He helped her up and smiled. “Daddy knows magic, and he will be back in a moment. You’ll be part of the magic too.”
He had long prepared Xunuo’s mask but never mentioned it to her. Just as he was thinking of how he would explain it to her, the opportunity presented itself. “Why should I change into somebody else?” Xunuo was baffled.
“Because there are bad people attacking Xunuo and Daddy, we must wear them so that the baddies won’t find us. Let’s play hide and seek with those baddies, okay?” Ye Ningyuan cajoled her.
He was a little impressed at how he made things up.
Xunuo thought about it. “Whatever Daddy says is correct, right? Please don’t make me look ugly, okay?”
“I will not!” Ye Ningyuan said before entering the bathroom and washing up. Xunuo also returned to her bathroom and washed up. Xunuo changed into a red dress, and Ye Ningyuan shook his head. While her character had completely changed, her preferences had not. That was a proper miracle.
“You really love red.”
“Yes, it’s really pretty,” Xunuo said. She allowed Ye Ningyuan to bring her downstairs. Rosefinch had long prepared the mask, and Ye Ningyuan helped her wear it. It was as though she became another person. As Rosefinch said, she was still pretty but somewhat cold.
An Xunuo really loved it.
In the afternoon, Ye Ningyuan had to head out. The Top Terrorist Organization was about to sell a lot of munitions to the Colombian mafias whose big boss was already in London. Ye Ningyuan would personally negotiate the details with them. The Colombian mafia boss took on The Top Terrorist Organization’s bases in Colombia and crazily expanded its influence. They had challenged Ye Ningyuan’s bottom line.
His personal appearance would intimidate the competition and indirectly have him back off.
An Xunuo, however, would never leave him. If he went out, she would certainly follow. Rosefinch coaxed her into staying to no avail. An Xunuo held Ye Ningyuan’s hands and did not want to let go.
“Since that’s the case, follow Daddy then.”
