Under normal circumstances, a wife would be upset to see this.
But when I saw it, I was calmed and even felt that it had nothing to do with me at all.
Erin obviously didn’t think so.
She seemed worried that I couldn’t see them. She touched the kiss masks with her hand.
But I still didn’t look at it.
Doris looked at her contemptuously.
Only Briana worked quietly. It seemed that these things had nothing to do with her.
After we went downstairs, Ming put down his newspaper and went to the table.
Everything was as usual.
Lester finished eating. I wanted to take him to Linda’s house, but Ming asked me, “can you rest today? I want to show you something.”
Ming reconfirmed. His tone was sincere and his expression was gentle, but I felt pressure and didn’t know how to refuse.
I thought about it and agreed, “OK.”
As for Lester…
I didn’t know how long we would be out. In case we were out all day, I dare not let Erin take care of him.
I thought about it and said to Ming, “I want to send Lester to Linda’s house first…”
“OK! I made an appointment with Summer that I would go to her house today. Boys can’t break their words.”
Lester said when I finished.
He was like an adult.
When he finished, everyone laughed.
Ming looked at him and sighed helplessly, “OK, you can go there.”
After breakfast, Lester and I went out. Erin offered Ming clothes and shoes.
But she turned a blind eye to Lester and me.
I didn’t care.
I was afraid Ming wouldn’t let me go easily if I drove Erin away.
We sent Lester to Linda’s house. When we went downstairs, Ming took my hand and asked, “will Summer be our daughter-in-law in the future?”
“Ah?” I froze and said, “no, Lester’s a kid.”
“But I think he understands a lot of things.”
Ming said softly.
It was normal but I thought he meant something else.
I quickly changed the subject and asked him, “so where are we going today?”
He took a look at me and said, “you’ll know when you get there.”
The car arrived in front of a white building with more than 20 floors in the suburb of York. It was very remote and there was very little traffic.
There was only one front desk and no sign in the hall on the first floor.
Ming took me in. The receptionist saw him and said respectfully, “President Jessop.”
Then she took out the register.
Ming nodded and signed on it and moved on.
I immediately followed him.
He took me into the building and we took the elevator to the third floor.
I thought it was just an ordinary building, but when I got out of the elevator, I found it was really a high-tech experimental base.
Face, fingerprint and retina are recognized when entering and leaving.
The last time I saw this recognition was in a science fiction movie.
I never thought that this kind of thing existed in our life.
When we entered the laboratory on the third floor, there were people in white coats doing research.
Ming began to explain to me and then I knew how Ming was making money.
It was not the AI he released that day. It was a drug developed by his pharmaceutical company.
Not long ago, his blood disease drug was officially launched. As long as the drug was used for a period of time, the patient could be the same as the normal person.
It was a good news for patients.
And now he had several projects under study.
Every successful project was a contribution to mankind. Of course Ming would make a lot of money.
I didn’t quite understand his explanation, but I understood that they were very powerful projects.
I knew Ming had a drug company before. Because he bought a national TV ad at Noah Center for his company’s drugs.
But I didn’t expect it to be so powerful.
After our visit, Ming took me to the staff restaurant for a rest.
He ordered two cups of coffee for me and himself.
He put the coffee in front of me and said, “are you curious why I show you this?”
In fact, I could probably guess a little.
Then Ming smiled and took my hand. “I don’t want you to know nothing about me. I’d like to tell you everything about me. At the same time, I hope that one day you can open your heart and accept me sincerely.”
He was going to tell me everything about him?
He wanted me to accept him sincerely?
When Ming said these things, I thought of the passion of him and Erin last night.
I didn’t blame him.
But I couldn’t open my heart to him.
When something happened, even if it never happened again, it was like a broken mirror.
No matter how you ment it, there would be cracks.
And I was sure he and Erin didn’t do that for the first time last night.
And it wouldn’t be the last time.
In order not to let Ming down, I nodded and looked at him, “OK, I will try my best.”
“I hope this day comes earlier.” Ming looked at me affectionately. “You can give yourself to me wholeheartedly. I can take care of you and Lester and our other children in the future. I can give you a better life than anyone else.”
It was really sweet words.
I looked at him, but I was not touched at all.
I was like a puppet in a mask and playing his wife.
But I believed what Ming said.
He had so much better stuff than Sean had.
I believed Ming would one day stand at the top of the pyramid in York and even the whole country.
The days after that were as usual.
Ming’s business had no impact on me.
But four days after the engagement dinner.
After a weekend, as soon as I got into the studio, Linda pulled me and said, “you know what? You’ve become famous!”
I was confused for a moment.
Linda pulled me to her computer screen.
I saw a news on the big screen and it said, “family change? The real father of Ming’s son is actually his nephew Sean!”
