Su Bei was in a good mood. She received a message from Lu Heting saying that he would arrive at eight o’clock tomorrow morning.
Su Bei went to the kitchen to prepare breakfast for tomorrow morning. Lu Heting’s preferred a lighter palate, and he hadn’t been back for a long time. She washed and cut everything herself.
Gun Gun followed her and reached out his little round hand to help her wash the vegetables. “So Daddy will be back at eight o’clock tomorrow morning?”
“That’s right. That’s why I’ll go out and pick him up at six o’clock. I’ll steam and cook these things and ask the butler to keep an eye on them for me.”
“I want to go too!” Gun Gun had not seen his daddy for a long time, so he missed him very much.
Su Bei nodded. “Okay, go to bed early tonight. I’ll wake you up at six tomorrow morning. Be quick.”
Gun Gun quickly nodded. “I will! Call me and I’ll get up immediately!”
“Da Bao, are you coming along?” Su Bei asked. “If you want to go, I’ll wake you up too. If you want to rest for a while more, that’s okay as well. You can see Daddy when he comes back.”
Da Bao thought for a while. “Let me think about it.”
Su Bei smiled and said, “Okay. Whether you go or not, let’s have breakfast together tomorrow morning.”
“Okay.” Da Bao walked away without looking back.
Su Bei smiled. His personality was exactly the same as his father’s, so it was not easy for the two of them to get along well.
Su Bei got ready and went to rest early.
In the middle of the night, Lu Heting’s car returned to the neighborhood.
When he got off the plane, only the chauffeur from the company came to pick him up.
Su Bei was nowhere to be seen.
Lu Hang thought, ‘Why does Mr. Lu have to do this? When we were away, he missed Su Bei so much that he wished he could come back as soon as possible.
‘However, when we were coming back, he told Su Bei that the plane would only arrive tomorrow morning.’
‘I really can’t understand people who are in love!’
Lu Heting looked a little tired, but his eyes were clear. The closer the car got to home, the more satisfied he felt.
Naturally, he wouldn’t tell Su Bei that he was going home at this time. Otherwise, she would definitely have waited for him at the airport.
If he could stop her from making unnecessary efforts like that, she would not need to tire herself out.
When they reached home, the butler opened the door in surprise.
Lu Heting made a shushing gesture, and no one alerted Su Bei as they watched Lu Heting go in.
Su Bei had gone to bed early and was already sound asleep. The alarm clock had been set, and she was just waiting to pick Lu Heting up tomorrow morning.
It had been a long time since she last saw him, so she was naturally overjoyed.
Lu Heting entered and saw the woman sleeping soundly. He reached out his long fingers and caressed her face.
Su Bei opened her sleepy eyes slightly, then closed them again. She hooked her slender arms around his neck.
“Didn’t you say you wouldn’t be back until tomorrow morning? Why are you in my dream?” she muttered to herself. She rubbed her head against his chest, closed her eyes, and fell asleep again.
Lu Heting couldn’t help laughing. He lowered his head and lifted her chin, caressing it with his long fingers. Then, he sealed her mouth with a kiss.
When she woke up the next day, Su Bei rubbed against something warm beside her. She opened her eyes and saw a familiar handsome face. The smile on her face could not help but bloom.
She leaned over and asked sweetly, “Didn’t you say that you would wait for me to pick you up? Why are you back so early?”
“Because I missed you and wanted to see you soon.” The man’s voice was hoarse and gentle.
It was only then that Su Bei remembered something. “I haven’t started making breakfast yet.”
“Do something else with me.” She was pulled back into his arms.
Just then, there was a soft knock on the door.
Su Bei quickly said, “It might be Gun Gun. He said that he wanted to pick you up with me early in the morning.”
“I’ll open it.” Lu Heting opened the door and saw the two little guys waiting for Su Bei to get up.
When Gun Gun saw Lu Heting, his little face was filled with joy. “Daddy! You’re already here! Why are you here so early? What magic spell did you use?”
Lu Heting hugged him and pulled the awkward Da Bao into his arms.
Su Bei also saw Da Bao. Last night, he said that he would think about whether to go along with them to the airport. Looking at how neatly he was dressed now, his intentions could not be more obvious.
He was really cute when he didn’t mean what he said.
Da Bao looked at Su Bei and lowered his eyes in embarrassment. Su Bei smiled but did not expose him. Seeing that he did not speak, she kissed his face. Da Bao’s eyes lit up as he looked up.
Lu Heting returned today, so Su Bei rested for a day and did not go out.
It was evening when she received Yue Ze’s message.
[Director He said that he doesn’t wish to cast Xu Zhiqin, so I plan to let Zhiqin audition for another movie. Let’s not waste time here.]
Su Bei asked: [Did Director He say anything?]
This result was very different from what she had expected.
Xu Zhiqin suited that role in every way, and her performance was also one of the best. However, He Xuyan rejected her directly. What went wrong?
[He didn’t say anything. He just said that it wasn’t a good match and told us not to wait. But Director He has always been like this. He must have his reasons for saying no.]
Su Bei said: [Forget it, then. In that case, there’s no need to force it.]
Xu Zhiqin also heard the result. Compared to Su Bei’s confidence, she did not have much hope for this audition to begin with.
“I’m very disappointed. After all, I lost an opportunity to work with Director He.” Xu Zhiqin’s low mood did not last long. “But Director He must have his reasons for making such a choice. The fact that I wasn’t chosen only means that I’m not good enough. I’ll just work harder.”
Yue Ze handed her the other audition notice. “Go and try this.”
“Okay.” Xu Zhiqin took it.
Then, she received a WeChat message from He Xuyan.
[Meet me at my home.]
Xu Zhiqin thought about the scar removal medicine that she had to pass to him, so she agreed.
She changed into the uniform of a delivery man and went to where He Xuyan lived.
The place he lived in was a very ordinary neighborhood. It did not match his identity.
Fortunately, there were no reporters following her.
After Xu Zhiqin entered his residence, she handed him the medicine. “Director He, I promised to give you the medicine.”
He Xuyan reached out to take it. “What are your plans for now?”
“I’ll go for auditions. If I succeed, I’ll join the cast. If not, I’ll continue auditioning.”
“You don’t blame me?”
Xu Zhiqin looked at his serious gaze and burst into laughter. “Why should I blame you? You have a job to do, so you must choose the person you think is suitable. I’m not a suitable fit, so you rejected me. That’s understandable. Although I’m a little disappointed, I won’t blame you.”
“How disappointed are you?” He Xuyan’s tone was indifferent.
