My outside expression is different from my inner expression

Chapter 53.1

Li Qingzhou and Li Xusheng being able to stay at the Xia Residence made Xia Yijun the happiest.

Hugging his little friend excitedly, he shouted, “Shengsheng, Shengsheng, we’re going to sleep together tonight!”

Li Xusheng also hugged him back happily, “En!”

Zhong Lan enjoyed cooking herself.

Usually before dinner, the nanny would leave and at this time, Xia Xinjian would have come out of his study and Xia Cenze would have returned home from work.

Hence Zhong Lan went to the kitchen to cook, with Xu Shan helping her.

Making a call to his little sister Li Hanyu, Li Qingzhou informed her that he wouldn’t be home tonight and reminded her to lock the doors and windows and to cover herself well with a quilt when going to bed.

Li Hanyu in turn told him not to worry.

The two chatted for a while before ending the call.

Zhong Lan, who happened to see Li Qingzhou on the phone sighed to Liu Bohuai, “I didn’t expect Qingzhou to look cold and silent but be so considerate towards his family.”

Actually, just by seeing the overflowing love and affection he had for Li Xusheng, one could tell that he was a really good big brother.

Liu Bohuai made an agreeing sound in response.

After she finished saying this, Zhong Lan went back to the kitchen to continue cooking.

Liu Bohuai walked over to the two children and crouched down— at this moment, Li Xusheng and Xia Yijun were both sitting on a soft blanket, playing with building blocks.

Seeing him approach, Xia Yijun lifted his little head and asked with a puzzled expression, “Uncle, what’s wrong?”

Liu Bohuai first rubbed Xia Yijun’s little head, then rubbed Li Xusheng’s and told them, “Qingzhou has had a full day of work discussions today, so don’t disturb him tonight.”

“Especially you, Xia Yijun. Don’t ask your Big Brother Li to tell stories or put you to bed, alright?”

Li Xusheng, holding a building block nodded immediately, “Big Brother should rest well.”

Xia Yijun also responded, “Got it, Uncle.”

After saying this, he pulled Li Xusheng to the side and whispered, “It’s alright, I can ask my mom to tell the story.”

“Tonight, we’ll listen to the story of the evil dragon saving the brave warrior…”

Liu Bohuai stood up.

Just then, Li Qingzhou finished his call and came over in his wheelchair.

During dinner, at the dining table, Liu Bohuai and Li Qingzhou accompanied the two elders, Xia Xinjian and Xia Cenze, in a round of drinks.

Afterwards, Xu Shan led the two children to their room to rest.

Liu Bohuai had a fixed room at the Xia Residence.

The guest room that was chosen for Li Qingzhou was next to Liu Bohuai’s. It had already been cleaned and prepared, with brand new, dry and warm bedding.

He entered the room in his wheelchair.

Shortly after, Liu Bohuai entered the room with a whole set of pajamas and closed the door behind him.

And placing the pajamas at the foot of the bed, he said, “The only pajamas at the Xia Residence are the ones I’ve worn.”

Li Qingzhou replied, “It’s okay.”

[I don’t mind at all.]

He maneuvered his wheelchair to the foot of the bed and was about to reach out to touch the pajamas,

However who knew that Liu Bohuai would place his hand on the armrest of Li Qingzhou’s wheelchair and lean forward, his hair falling and brushing against Li Qingzhou’s cheek as he stopped near his ear—

Sniffing lightly at Li Qingzhou’s neck, he said in a deep voice, “Qingzhou, you smell a little like alcohol. Go take a shower.”

[Huh, I do?!]

—The little guy in the bubble stretched out his chubby arms in front of his eyes immediately, sniffing left and right, his little nose wrinkling up.

Tilting his head slightly, Li Qingzhou was puzzled as he said hesitantly, “I do? How come I don’t smell it….”

After all he’d only had two glasses of alcohol.

Standing up, Liu Bohuai affirmed, “You do. It’s just that since it’s on you, you yourself won’t be able to smell it.”

“Take a shower and change your clothes, so you’ll feel more comfortable when you sleep.”

Seeing that Liu Bohuai had indeed changed his clothes already, Li Qingzhou nodded, “Alright, then I’m going to the bathroom….”

“Let me help you.”

Saying this, Liu Bohuai moved behind him and pushed the wheelchair towards the bathroom.

Although his voice was without emotion and his tone light, there was something about it that said he wouldn’t take no for an answer, “The height and dimensions of the bathroom here aren’t the same as the ones in your house.”

“So taking a shower might be very inconvenient for you. You shouldn’t slip and fall.”

[It’s…. it’s true….. but how can you help me take a shower?!]

—The little guy in the bubble turned red instantly then covered his little face with his hands, burying it in his chest while steam appeared above his head, making him look like a steamed little egg.

Li Qingzhou was a little stunned, but quickly reacted, “No, there’s no need for that. Third Master, I can do it on my own….”

However before he could finish speaking, he had already been pushed into the bathroom.
