Thinking of the words and certain events He Erya brought up at the time, the cold look in Xia Qingshu’s eyes deepened. He really did not expect that the person in front of him, the gentle, kind and innocent neighbor, He Erya, had a vicious and twisted heart…
“But…” Mu Chongyan closed his eyes, took a breath, and said, “But why did father say that you became seriously ill and…He Erya was completely unharmed, even so honestly helping father hide the secret that you haven’t been in Shengya since long ago?!”
“It was probably because the organization’s plan worked, they had made up a very perfect explanation and helped He Erya disguise and conceal everything. They took advantage of your father’s trust and favorability. Dearie, don’t underestimate this organization. The upper-level staff and top grade combatants in the organization are actually very strong. As for why He Erya cooperated with them obediently, this is hard to say. Perhaps they promised other benefits.”
“As for why I am seriously ill, I know about this.” Xia Qingshu’s eyes grew hot. He pinched the handle of the teacup and gently rubbed it.
“Actually, the Sheng Ya imperial family has a secret rule. If the emperor is widowed before the age of eighty, he must marry another. Your father…probably did it to stop your grandparents and their mouths.”
“It was because of this?!!!” Mu Chongyan was stunned. The misunderstanding and grievances he had towards his father suddenly eased up. However, his… grandparents passed away 15 years ago. Why didn’t his father tell the truth now?
Was it because…he was still holding onto a glimmer of hope in his heart, that he wasn’t willing to believe that his dad was ‘dead’…?

Mu Chongyan looked at Bai Rong who was talking with his dad, and a soft smile appeared in his eyes.
However…his Little Sweet Cake was already working hard to adjust his mood.
“Rongrong, go take a hot bath first, and then come out to eat.” Mu Chongyan took two steps before suddenly remembering something. He reached out his hand and rubbed Bai Rong’s hair, “We stayed in the manufacturing room of the weapons making shop for so long we probably have a lot of dust and iron shavings on us, let’s wash them off.”
“Dearie and Rongrong should go and wash up.” Xia Qingshu smiled and looked at the two of them, “Dad’s cooking is quite good. I’ll make some supper for you to try.”
“How could we let you do that?” Bai Rong shook his head quickly, “Let’s go together!”
He didn’t dare to let his father-in-law make him supper on the first day of their meeting!
“It’s okay, just treat it as my wish, okay?” Xia Qingshu looked at Mu Chongyan and said, “I haven’t done anything for Dearie so far, so don’t reject it, okay?”
Mu Chongyan paused, and suddenly embraced Bai Rong, smiling at Xia Qingshu, “Okay, thank you dad, I will take Rongrong for a bath.”
“Okay, go.” Xia Qingshu looked at their backs and smiled kindly. However, after smiling for some time, he suddenly felt something wrong.
Why did his Dearie go in the same direction as Rongrong? Rongrong was only nineteen, how…how can they…together…
Xia Qingshu’s old face turned red and he turned to head to the kitchen. Forget it, he shouldn’t care about the matters of young children.
Of course, Bai Rong did not wash up together with Mu Chongyan. Mu Chongyan did it in the bathroom on the third floor whereas he went to the second floor.
After spending half an hour in the bath, Bai Rong’s mood had calmed down a lot, and he had almost digested everything he had heard today.
In short, he only needed to study weapon making and earn money, and then try hard to find a way to take Chongyan and the others away from this barren planet, and then find those people to get revenge on!
After making up his resolve, Bai Rong clenched his fist, got up and got out of the bathtub. He dried his body with a bath towel, ruffled his hair and put on his pajamas before walking out.
As soon as he left, he spotted Mu Chongyan waiting for him at the bathroom door.
Bai Rong’s face turned red, “Chongyan, w…why are you waiting here?”
“I came over after washing up.” Mu Chongyan took out a small towel from the spatial button and wiped Bai Rong’s hair. “Why didn’t you dry your hair? What if you catch a cold?”
“I won’t.” Bai Rong shook his head, “Chongyan, don’t rub anymore. It wouldn’t be good if Uncle Xia were to see this…”
Otherwise, he would think that he was a scum man who only knew how to ask his wife to serve him!
“He won’t. Dad is in the kitchen. I saw him just now.”
“That won’t do.”
“Rongrong, be good. I’ll stop wiping once we get to the living room, okay?”
“No, how about… you give me the towel.”
“That’s too much trouble, I’ll just wipe Rongrong.”
“Why do you…”
Bai Rong couldn’t win against Mu Chongyan, so he walked straight ahead while Mu Chongyan followed along, gently rubbing his hair, but as soon as Bai Rong stepped into the living room, they were caught by Xia Qingshu.
“!!!” Bai Rong quickly pushed Mu Chongyan’s hand away.
Xia Qingshu’s eyes swept over Bai Rong and Mu Chongyan twice, and he smiled extremely lovingly, “You two, come here quickly, supper is done.”
Seeing Xia Qingshu say nothing, Bai Rong heaved a breath of relief. He quickly ran over and ignored Mu Chongyan.
Mu Chongyan reluctantly followed behind quickly.
“You sure prepared a lot and it smells so good!” Looking at the desserts on the table, Bai Rong’s eyes grew wide in surprise.
Wow, father-in-law is so amazing. He actually knows how to make so many desserts!
Mu Chongyan also came over, sat next to Bai Rong, and said, “Thank you, Dad.”
“You don’t need to thank me…” Xia Qingshu looked at Mu Chongyan and Rongrong contentedly, and picked up two pieces of fruit rolls, placing it on their plates.
“Quickly give it a try. Second dearie liked eating this before. It might be a bit sweet so I don’t know if you guys will like it. If you don’t like it, Dad can adjust the ingredients again.”
“Second dearie?!!!” Both of them were taken aback. A strange joy flashed through Mu Chongyan’s eyes, and he put down the fruit roll, and asked, “Dad, are you… referring to second brother?”
“Yeah.” Xia Qingshu nodded, “It’s your second brother, second dearie used to like this the most. What do you think, is the taste okay?”
