Chapter 99: Send You Home
Under the envious gazes of the parents, Qiu Tong led the three children out of the kindergarten.
Qiu Xingyuan gripped the check tightly. After a moment of hesitation, he awkwardly raised his hand and shoved it into Qiu Tong’s hand.
Qiu Tong looked at him in surprise and was about to ask why when she saw him walk to the side of the road. He said with a cold face, “I’m still young and it’s very dangerous to hold on to this sum of money. What if I meet someone like Yu Ge who steals my money?”
“I’ll let you keep this check for me for the time being. I am not giving it to you!”
“You can use it for the time being, but when the need arises, I’ll get it back from you…”
Qiu Xingyuan turned his face away from her.
Qiu Tong suppressed her laughter and rubbed his head. She hugged him and said softly, “Mommy understands. Thank you!”
She understood that he was afraid that she did not have money. It was just that he was not good at expressing his feelings for her.
Qiu Tong could wait. She could wait for the three children to fully trust and depend on her…
She believed that that day would come soon!
Taking advantage of Qiu Xingyuan’s daze, she suddenly leaned over and kissed his cheek!
Qiu Xingyuan widened his eyes in shock and wanted to push Qiu Tong away, but he could not. He could only rub his face in disdain, frowning in humiliation.
Qiu Xingyu looked at her mother and brother and rushed over to hug Qiu Tong’s neck.
“Little Yu wants a kiss too! Mommy can’t be biased!”
Qiu Tong kissed her tenderly and brought Qiu Xingqiao over as well. Everyone was rewarded with a kiss!
The family of four was laughing and playing when Song Yan’s black Mercedes slowly stopped in front of them.
Qiu Tong held the three kids warily and assumed a defensive stance. When Song Yan rolled down the car window, she relaxed a little. “You haven’t left?”
Song Yan smiled, narrowed his eyes and tilted his head. “I was waiting for you guys. Let me send you home!”
Qiu Tong was very familiar with Song Yan, so she herded the children in.
Song Yan gripped the steering wheel. Qiu Tong was surprised to see no sign of Shao An in the car. She asked in confusion, “You are by yourself? Alone?”
“Yes, Shao An has something to do. It’s not convenient to talk about it.”
Song Yan replied perfunctorily.
Qiu Tong recalled how those two men usually interacted with each other and nodded. She did not probe further. She rolled down the window and let the warm wind blow against her face. She was very relaxed.
Compared to her, the three children looked at Song Yan as if they were looking at an enemy. Their small faces were scrunched up!
Their mother had not told him their home address, but Song Yan seemed to have no problem with the route. He knew where their home was!
He seemed to be very familiar with their mother?
Mommy would never be so relaxed in front of anyone!
They must have met many times before!
Were they going to have a stepfather soon?
Qiu Xingyu looked at Qiu Xingyuan nervously. Qiu Xingyuan pursed his lips and stole a glance at Qiu Tong’s face, feeling rather worried.
If she really found a man outside, would she abandon them?
At the instigation of the triplets, Qiu Xingqiao cleared his throat and said, “Who are you? Why were you waiting for Mommy?”
“What’s your relationship with Mommy? How long have you known each other? How did you meet?”
He was an impatient person and did not hold back his curiosity.
Qiu Tong raised an eyebrow and burst out laughing.
Were these children interrogating a criminal?
Song Yan tapped his fingers on the steering wheel as he waited for the traffic light to turn green. Through the rearview mirror, he stared at the three children with their different expressions. If he wanted to drive Jin Yang crazy, he could start by capturing these children!
And he was more skilled at strategizing against children than that brother of his!
He raised his eyebrows and replied gently, “I’ve known your Mommy for a period of time.”
“We met by chance.”
Song Yan casually omitted several key details, without arousing Qiu Tong’s suspicion.
During his time outside, he had already conducted a thorough investigation. Qiu Tong was a single mother and no one around knew who the children’s father was.
Even the children themselves did not know.
In other words… Jin Yang did not know of the existence of these children!
At this point, Song Yan turned his head suggestively to look at Qiu Tong and asked, “Do you want to be like other children, having a father who can play football with you on holidays or accompany you to the amusement park?”
Qiu Tong was surprised by his question.
Qiu Xingyuan sneered at Song Yan. He knew that this man was not harboring any good intentions!
Before Qiu Xingqiao and Qiu Xingyu could react, he said coldly, “Our father is already dead! We don’t need a father!”
Song Yan stepped on the accelerator and the car drove very steadily. He could tell that the children were very obedient to Qiu Xingyuan. He raised his eyebrows and asked, “What if he’s not dead?”
