Once she lay down, she fell asleep in no time. At this time, the door opened; Chu Lui walked in and sat at the bedside. He extended his hand to lightly caress her face. She seemed to be recuperating well, but her skin was pale. She was originally a fair-skinned person, and Rainy had inherited this trait; she was small and like a ball of glutinous rice. Just that, after spending so much time at the gold island, she was tanned. However, her skin should turn back in a few years, but she did not know when her body would return to its original shape.
He covered her with the blanket before walking out and to his daughter's side.
"Daddy, I'm done." Rainy showed her homework to Chu Lui and was waiting for a compliment.
"My baby is so smart." Chu Lui's eyes scanned across like a laser and knew that she had written everything correctly. This child's intelligence followed him and not her mother's which would only allow her to be bullied.
Rainy happily hugged her father.
Chu Lui kissed his daughter's face and carried his daughter with one hand while he called on the other.
"Mm, I want to reserve a table. What time?" He raised his wrist to calculate the time. "Seven-thirty. Remember to ask your head chef to make sweet and sour fish. Ask him to pick the one with lesser bones; my daughter wants to eat it."
Rainy blinked, and her pair of eyes smiled until it was in the shape of a crescent moon. Chu Lui threw his phone aside and carried her up to play. This child's innocent laughter could really chase his frustrations away.
At this point, none of them knew that in the other room, Lin Qing was using his might to rip his book apart.
He ripped page by page. A face that was originally not very big was currently filled with all sorts of hatred.
When Xia Ruoxin woke up, the sky was already dark. She placed her hand on her stomach and sat up. Luckily, her stomach was not in pain already.
She walked into the washroom and heaved a sigh of relief. Her reflection in the mirror did not look too pale, and there was meat on her face, not the skeleton that she was before. Actually, she did not even know how she looked like when she was on the gold island. However, one look at Shen Wei, and she knew that she must have been really ugly. It was also rare that Chu Lui got to stare at that face of hers when he saved her from that place.
She washed her face, tidied herself up, and came out. By that time, Rainy was already dressed and was carrying a new bunny backpack. She was even wearing a hat on her head and was currently sitting on Chu Lui's lap, munching on something in her mouth.
Xia Ruoxin stood at the entrance and was thinking that this must be blood relations. In the past when she was with Gao Yi—no matter how close they were, they were not as physically close when compared to Chu Lui. It turned out that there was something different. It turned out that without the blood relation, one could not invest too much in it.
"Are you done?"
Chu Lui carried his daughter with one hand and asked Xia Ruoxin.
"Mm, I'm done. I'll call Xiao Qing."
Xia Ruoxin touched her face and walked to Lin Qing's door before knocking on it lightly.
"Xiao Qing, let's go. We're going out to eat."
Once Lin Qing heard the voice, he hurriedly shoved the litter paper into his bag before walking out.
"Let's go." Xia Ruoxin held Lin Qing's hand. He lowered his head as if he was embarrassed, but he actually really hated it and wanted to pull his hand back. In front, Chu Lui was holding his daughter with one hand and playing rock-paper-scissors with the other. How could this CEO Chu play such a childish game so happily?
Lin Qing raised his head and gave a cold glare. Chu Lui stopped in his tracks and looked back at Lin Qing, causing Lin Qing to hurriedly look down and pretend that he was looking at his toes as if he was going to pick up a ten-cent coin.
"Chu Lui…" Xia Ruoxin walked over and pointed at her face.
"Do you think I look ugly?"
She did not have any make-up on, her skin was bad, and she was tanned, skinny, and ugly. Most importantly, she did not have long hair. She remembered Chu Lui loved pretty girls with long hair in the past so she kept her hair long. One reason was that she did not want to go bald, and the second was because he liked it.
"Not very nice." Chu Lui was very honest. "However, I've seen you at your worst." Currently, he really did not care much about a woman's appearance. "So don't worry. Even if you look like a pig—in my eyes, you are still the most beautiful one."
This might be the most annoying piece of truth, but even so—when a woman heard it, this was much better and realistic than a man saying he loved her and could do anything for her.
Chu Lui did not really like saying romantic fairytales. He hated someone realistically, and he loved someone the same way.
When they got out of the car, Chu Lui carried his daughter as she could not wear shoes outside; she had to be carried by his father.
This was a high-class Chinese restaurant. There were many people inside, but Chu Lui had already reserved a table previously so the waiters brought them into a private room. In no time, the dishes were all served.
There was also a ginger date soup.
"Drink this." He pushed the soup to Xia Ruoxin.
Xia Ruoxin took it and drank one mouthful. Instantly, the warmth slid down her throat, to her gut, and then to her abdomen. She drank it mouthful by mouthful and had fallen in love with the soup.
Chu Lui kept helping his daughter pick the bone as he knew that his daughter loved this dish. Actually, he loved steamed fish personally, but his daughter liked sweet and sour. Besides, in this table of dishes, he did not touch it much himself and was just preoccupied with feeding his daughter.
Perhaps to him, a bite of his daughter's was much more satisfying than him eating an entire table of food.
In the meantime, Lin Qing did not say much; and Xia Ruoxin noticed it.
"Xiao Qing, what's the matter? Is the food not nice?"
Xia Ruoxin also felt that something was amiss with the child.
"No, it's quite nice." After Lin Qing said it, he buried his face into the bowl. Chu Lui squinted his eyes, and his gaze landed on Lin Qing's.
After they were done eating, Chu Lui carried his daughter and drove the car over while Xia Ruoxin and Lin Qing were waiting for them at the side.
Lin Qing kept looking at Xia Ruoxin from time to time; he could not understand how she came back.
"What's the matter? Is there something on Auntie's face?" Xia Ruoxin touched her face. Did she accidentally leave rice grains on her face when she was eating previously?
