Chapter 854 Pretended Not to Hear
Rosalie touched the little ones’ heads apologetically. “I’m sorry, but my work today is important and urgent. As you’ve heard, they’ll shut the company down soon, so I have to go out today.”
The little ones looked disappointed and said nothing.
They knew how important work was to their mommy.
However, they still did not like Mommy going out with Uncle Xander.
Seeing the little ones’ reluctant expressions, Rosalie felt sorry and strange.
When they were abroad, she had always been busy like now. However, the little ones never complained anything about it.
She was also busy day and night finding pharmaceutical companies for the research institute when they first returned. Even then, the little ones were obedient and did not make a fuss about it.
Rosalie had no idea what had happened this time.
“Mommy…” Nox couldn’t help but ask, “Are you going to make Uncle Xander our daddy?”
When Rosalie heard this, she was stunned for a few seconds, she then realized the little ones’ concerns and could not help feeling confused. “Mommy and Uncle Xander are business partners, just like the uncles you met when we were abroad.”
She looked into the children’s eyes and promised, “Don’t worry, if I want to make someone your daddy, I’ll ask you first. I won’t let someone you dislike be your daddy.”
The little ones were relieved and nodded obediently.
Seeing that the little ones understood her situation, Rosalie was relieved.
Then, she looked at the time and noticed it was getting late.
Rosalie caressed the little ones’ heads and stood up slowly. “It’s getting late. If I don’t go out soon, I won’t be able to get to work on time.”
The little ones obediently agreed and apologized to their mommy. “Sorry, Mommy. We made you worry just now.”
Rosalie smiled. “It’s good that you’ve realized your mistake. You can tell me anything. Don’t pretend to be ill. I’ll be worried.”
The little ones agreed.
Rosalie headed downstairs.
In the living room, Xander was sitting on the sofa, waiting. He got up and asked with concern when he saw Rosalie heading downstairs, “How are the kids?”
Thinking of what the little ones had just said, Rosalie felt guilty for no reason, she smiled and said, “Maybe they caught a cold last night. I gave them some medicine and asked them to rest.”
Xander nodded. “I can go to Heronial Corporation alone if you have to stay back here to take care of the kids.”
Rosalie made her way over. “Let’s go together and come back early.”
Xander did not insist since Rosalie had already decided.
At the same time, Byron left the Lawrence family’s place in such a hurry that he did not even have time to eat breakfast.
Estelle did not manage to finish her words and threw a tantrum by refusing to eat.
Mrs. Zora tried to coax her for a long time. However, the little girl was stubborn and refused to open her mouth.
“Little Lady…” Mrs. Zora looked helplessly at the little girl.
Estelle lifted her head and looked at Mrs. Zora with hope. “Mrs.
Zora, I want to go to Nox and Lucian’s house.”
The little girl did not know how to tell her father she wanted to look for Lucian and Nox because she needed their help.
Mrs. Zora’s heart melted upon seeing that little girl’s pitiful gaze. However, she recalled the master’s words before he left, ence, she pretended not to hear Estelle’s request.
