But Li Mosen’s mood was not very good, and he kept turning his head to look at the mirror around him. Blue eyes, brown hair, and whiter skin than most people, made him stand out among the people around him.[This little brother seems to be a mixed-race. Is your mother or father a foreigner?]
This sentence could not leave his mind. Even when eating, Li Mosen had lost interest in his food. Even if he called them mom and dad, it did not change the fact that he was not their biological child…
Su Qianci saw his strangeness and did not say anything about it. She dipped the snail meat that was hard to pull out in some sauce before she put it in mosen’s small bowl. She said, “Mosen, eat the snail meat.” All three children liked seafood a lot. Although they could not have much, Su Qianci allowed them to have some occasionally.
“Mom, I want it too!” Li Jianqian looked at Li Mosen’s small bowl, blinking and almost drooling.
Su Qianci glanced at him. “First eat the chicken leg in your hand and I will get some for you.” During the talk, Su Qianci had opened up several snails and put all the meat in Li Mosen’s bowl.
The twins had none. Li Jianyue was upset, pouted and said, “Mom is unfair!” Then she looked at Li Mosen. “Brother Mosen, I want some as well.”
Li Mosen looked at the snails in his bowl and heard what Li Jianyue had said. The lonely feeling he just had immediately disappeared. Li Mosen had a smile on his face. He used a spoon to get Li Jianyue a piece and handed it over. “Here, this is for Ersu.”
Li Jianyue jumped and shouted with her sweet voice, “Brother Mosen is the best!”
Li Jianqian had a look of envy on his face as he silently chewed the chicken legs.
Li Mosen gave one to Li Jianqian. “Dasu, here’s yours.”
Li Jianqian was happy, and he put his arm around Mosen’s shoulder. “Thank you, Mosen.”
Su Qianci lips were curled. After eating with the children, she took them back to the room to play. While the children were playing, she went out of the room and dialed the number of Li Sicheng. It took him a long while to answer the phone. Immediately, Su Qianci heard a lot of noises.
It sounded like there was something like a dinner party going on. Hearing fluent English, Su Qianci was dazed and blurted, “Didn’t you say you were going on a business trip? Have you arrived yet?” But after asking it, she immediately regretted it. What if he said he had arrived? She clearly knew that he did not board the plane…
Li Sicheng paused for a moment before he said, “No, I met a schoolmate and rescheduled. I will go on the business trip tomorrow. Are the children sleeping?”
“Not yet… It’s only eight.”
“Oh… I forgot about the time difference. Have you eaten?”
“Yes. When are you coming?”
“I won’t go. I will go straight home after the business trip. There are still things to do. I have to go now. Go to bed early.” After that, Li Sicheng hung up the phone.
Su Qianci only felt that her heart was empty. What happened to him? He was fine this morning. Was he mad just because he was turned down? She felt like just in a couple of hours, they had come so distant. The sudden coldness caught her off guard. Her brain was a mess. Leaning against the wall, Su Qianci was in a trance.
After Li Sicheng hung up the phone, he picked up the landline, which was a call from Cheng You. “Mr. Li, ready now.”
