Childish Flower - Chapter 22
The first warm rays of the morning sun spilt over him, causing his eyes to flutter open slightly as he woke up in the morning with a sore back.
At this moment, he had just woken up. His mind was not yet completely clear, and his eyes were staring blankly at something. His eyes flickered with concern.
Gao Tianchen had been awake for a long time. Seeing that it was still early, he did not want to wake up Mu Jin. So he gently got out of bed and was preparing breakfast in the kitchen.
Today was the last working day before Mu Jin’s maternity leave, and Gao Tianchen had arranged with Mu Jin that he would leave work early in the evening to pick him up in person.
Mu Jin dazedly got out of bed and reached out to get some clothes to change. Before he even touched the corners of his clothes, Gao Tian Chen grabbed them, and after arranging them one by one, he raised his hand to unbutton Mu Jin’s pyjamas.
“Tian Chen…I can do it myself.” Gao Tian Chen’s slightly cool hand gently grazed the delicate skin on his chest, provoking a slight blush on Mu Jin’s face. His hands swayed haphazardly.
Gao Tianchen gently grabbed Mu Jin’s hand with one hand and placed it beside his body. Ignoring his partner’s refusal, he just meticulously helped Mu Jin dress up. As if he was afraid that the early spring breeze would chill him, he even carefully wrapped up his scarf.
“Come and eat your breakfast. I’ve already cooked it.” Carrying the other man’s bulky body to the table, he sat down carefully.
Mu Jin chewed slowly, his eyes downcast. He was conflicted in his heart. Gao Tianchen was now treating him so well, a few degrees better than any dream he ever had.
Mu Jin knows Gao Tianchen too well. He(GT) is infatuated, mature and responsible. This is something that made Mu Jin love him(GT) to his bones.
But now, he could not understand. Was Gao Tianchen’s kindness to him due to his duties as a husband, or was it a little love that he did not dare to hope for?
Mu Jin’s head hurt, and he didn’t want to think about it anymore.
No matter what, when the baby is born, there should be an end to their relationship.
After eating in silence, the two of them went on their separate ways to work. Gao Tianchen wanted to take him to the bookstore, but Mu Jin refused to let him waste his time by taking a detour. Besides, it wasn’t far, so he could just walk there himself.
Even though it was his last day, Mu Jin didn’t slack off at all. He was quick and accurate with the register, creative with the display boards, and didn’t make any mistakes with the classification of the various books.
In his heart, Gu Ziqian had been very kind to him. He was as gentle and warm as the rising sun, willing to lend his hand to give him warmth and help when he was at his most down and desperate.
When it was almost time to leave work, Mu Jin thanked Gu Ziqian earnestly. But the other party’s mouth curled slightly, and there seemed to be stars in his eyes.
He gently patted Mu Jin’s shoulder and said, “If you really want to thank me, how about making me the godfather of your child?”
Mu Jin stared at the other party with somewhat surprised eyes. He then smiled and agreed in one breath.
At that moment, a black Bentley came roaring in and stopped steadily at the entrance of the bookstore.
Gao Tianchen had just gotten off work and had not yet changed out of his straight black suit. His long and straight figure was complemented by his expressionless handsome face, which was characteristically cool and elegant.
The person who came in calmly stepped into the bookstore and did not loiter but walked directly towards Mu Jin behind the counter.
Gu Ziqian thought to himself that this man must be Mu Jin’s Alpha. After all, his pheromone aura was identical to that of Mu Jin’s.
The visitor quietly waited aside for Mu Jin to finish packing his things, and as he was leaving, Gao Tian Chen said to Gu Ziqian, “Thank you very much for taking care of my partner during this time.”
Gu Ziqian half leaned against the wall next to the counter, holding the tally list in one hand and casually flipping through it with the other.
“Isn’t the person who should be taking care of him without fail greatest of all, is not his Alpha?”
Having witnessed the countless hardships Mu Jin had gone through in the past few months carrying the baby, Gu Ziqian did not have a good impression of the well-dressed but somewhat aloof Alpha in front of him.
As soon as he stepped out of the door of the bookstore, the cool breeze of early spring brushed past him. Mu Jin’s somewhat weak body could not bear the breeze at all and was seeped into a slight shiver.
Before Mu Jin’s mind could react, he fell softly into a warm and firm embrace.
When he raised his head slightly, he was confronted by Gao Tianchen’s gleaming black eyes. They were deep as an impenetrable gurgling pool.
Everything about Gao Tianchen was a fatal attraction to Mu Jin. He hid his slightly flushed cheeks into the other man’s broad chest, leaving behind his flushed ears alone.
Mu Jin did not want to fall into Gao Tian Chen’s tenderness again. Or else, how could he let go of this little bit of warmth?
The hand that was originally placed on his bulging belly hesitated slightly. But it tremblingly embraced Gao Tianchen.
There are not many days like this left for the two of them anyway. Even a moment of sunshine and rain can give Mu Jin heart satisfaction.
Just think of it as a beautiful dream…
But even if the dream is gorgeous like the morning sun, there will come a time when you will wake up.
