The night was getting quiet while a vast sea of stars filled the sky.

Maple Residence was getting quiet as it was shrouded in a gentle light.

Wang Hui went back to the Mu Residence after dinner. Because Mu Yinan had caught a cold, she was worried and wanted to take a look at him.

The two maternity matrons went to sleep after a day of work as well, but Xi Xiaye was still thinking about work. She went to the study room to do some work from Fuhua after she put her sons to sleep. When she glanced at the clock, she noticed it was already almost 10 p.m.

He was not home yet.

Xi Xiaye frowned. He had been coming home late recently because he had a lot of events to attend at night even though he was sick.

“Mother, are you not going to sleep?” Mu Zirui rubbed his eyes as he stood by the door.

“Xiao Rui? Why are you still awake? Didn’t Aunt Wang put you to sleep?” Xi Xiaye extended her arms to him and signaled for him to come over.

Mu Zirui walked over quickly. “I woke up to get a drink, then I saw that your room lights were still on. Is Brother asleep?”

“Yeap, he’s asleep. Let me get you some water. Sit here.” Xi Xiaye smiled and patted Mu Zirui’s head before going to fetch him a glass of water.

“Thank you, Mother! Mother, is Father not home yet?” Mu Zirui drank half the glass, then he curled up on the sofa beside Xi Xiaye.

Xi Xiaye took a deep breath and picked up her phone on the table. “Your father’s company has been very busy lately. Here, help me call your father and ask him when is he coming back. Also, ask him if he drank.” She punched Mu Yuchen’s number in and handed the phone to Mu Zirui.

“Oh! Okay!” Mu Zirui grabbed the phone and put it beside his ears. Mu Yuchen then picked up the call.

“Xiaye?” His voice sounded a little hoarse.

He got a childish sounding reply instead. “Father!”

“Xiao Rui?”

“Father, Mother is asking when will you be back, and if you drank tonight,” Mu Zirui grabbed the pillow beside him as he asked.

“Where’s Mother? Hand her the phone.”

“Oh.” Mu Zirui turned towards Xi Xiaye. “Mother, Father said…”

However, before Mu Zirui could finish his sentence, Xi Xiaye was already walking into the bedroom. “Tell him if he drank and isn’t coming back anytime soon, he’s sleeping on the sofa tonight!” Her slender figure then disappeared into the bedroom.

“Oh! Okay, Mother!” Mu Zirui replied to his mother before talking on the phone again, “Father, Mother said if you drank and you’re not home within half an hour, you’ll be sleeping on the sofa. She’s taking a shower now!”

Mu Zirui had not been going to kindergarten in the past few days and stayed in Maple Residence for the past week, so he noticed his mother’s habits. She would always take half an hour to shower. She would also be unhappy if she did not see his father by the time she was done showering.

Mu Yuchen frowned as he put on an awkward smile when the call was cut off. He shook his head helplessly.

He could not do anything even if he slept on the bed as well! Every night, he had to sleep in the study room after she fell asleep!

What a nightmare!

It was almost 11 p.m. when he arrived home. He noticed that the lights in the study room were still on, so he took a peek inside and saw her sleeping on the table.

Xi Xiaye suddenly smelled the person’s unique scent and woke up from her sleep. She caught a glimpse of the man in the corner of her eye and smelled some alcohol on him.

“Why are you back so late? You reek of alcohol!” She squinted at him intently.

He pulled her up as he sat down on the chair and shifted her onto his lap. “Why don’t you sleep in the bed? You don’t have to push yourself so hard. Uncle Lan sent us some information. I looked through it and found that Fuhua’s management system is great. The Vice Presidents fulfilled their roles exceptionally, so you don’t have to do everything on your own. Later, you…”

Xi Xiaye wrapped her arms around his shoulder and sighed. She grabbed a document in front of her and mumbled, “I’m really worried as I’m about to take over such a huge company while I’m nearly a stranger to the property development industry. What should I do if I can’t handle it? Maybe we should merge it with Glory World and let an experienced Vice President take over. I’ll continue to be Director Xi…”

“What is there to worry about? I’ll keep an eye on it. Fuhua is the work of Grandpa and Grandma, and it will stay that way forever. It carries its own special meaning. I’ve promoted several capable personnel before the New Year, so you can delegate the work and we’ll be able to relax a little. I’m planning to stop the market expansion in Europe and focus on maintaining our current market.”

“I agree with that move. There are too many projects going on and our funds are widely dispersed. Since you’ve decided to step foot in the showbiz industry, you should invest more in it. As for property development, we have Fuhua backing us up, so it shouldn’t be an issue. Regarding the tender for South River project No. 2, we really need to rely on Grandpa. Hopefully, he can acquire it and we can proceed on the two projects together. This will be beneficial for us and Qi Lei.”

“Mmm, this shouldn’t be much of an issue since Grandpa is handling it, but things might get difficult as Qi Kai is working with the Gu family. No matter what, we need to be prepared.”

“I understand. We’ll do our best, but it seems things will get difficult for Qi Lei if we don’t get it. Why does Qi Qiming dislike him so much? He’s still his son. That’s really cruel.” Xi Xiaye frowned as she felt it was unfair for Qi Lei. “Let’s just wait and see what’s going to happen.”

Suddenly, there was an email notification chime from the laptop. Xi Xiaye took a glance at it and saw that it was from Mu Yuchen.

“Open it,” Mu Yuchen instructed.

Xi Xiaye then nodded. She entered the password and opened the email.
