Winnie continued to work overtime and because it was too late, she did not come to pick up her children in the suburbs. Not until the next day after work, she got some time.
She drove to the suburbs alone, but there was a visitor.
She found it out when the car got into the yard and it was too late to avoid. As she got off, the two children ran over.
Winnie knew what was going on when she heard that Luke called her auntie. The visitor in the pavilion should be Brian's uncle.
Originally, she planned to have dinner here before returning with her children, but now it seemed that she could not stay here. If she said anything wrong and brought trouble to Brian, she would become a sinner.
"Have you been good here?”
Winnie greeted the children with a smile.
Megan answered and then she took Winnie's hand and made her squat down.
"Mummy, Daddy said there's a visitor here. He's Daddy's uncle."
Megan conveyed Brian's words in a low voice.
Winnie took a look at Megan and understood what Brian meant.
It seemed that Brian was still worried that she would say something wrong.
At this time, Rufus came over. Stella and Brian saw her, but they continued to chat.
Winnie was embarrassed by that.
"Winwin, you come at the right time. Have dinner here before you leave."
Rufus said enthusiastically.
"No, Sir, I am here to pick up the kids. I still have work to do. I'll be late for work if I have dinner here."
Winnie made an excuse because it was not her place.
"You need to have food and it is weekend, you should have a rest. Both children are hungry. Eat before you go."
Rufus insisted to ask Winnie to stay.
"My aunt has got dinner ready. We can have dinner at home."
Winnie bowed her head and asked the two children for advice.
"Do you want to go back with me, or wait for your father to see you off after dinner?"
"I... Mommy, I want to go back."
Megan whispered. There was a stranger here, and the stranger seemed not to like her, so she did not want to stay.
"Then I'll go back too."
Luke felt it was not fun to stay alone.
"Well, I'll take you home."
Winnie, who knew her children best, felt her child's awkwardness in front of strangers.
As Winnie was about to say goodbye to Rufus, Jack walked quickly over and interrupted Winnie.
“Hello, Beauty, nice to meet you again."
Jack greeted her politely.
Winnie replied gently, forcing a smile on her face.
"It seems that we have predestined relationship, but the way of knowing each other is special. I am Brian's younger brother, my name is Jack Bennet. May I have your name?"
Jack asked Winnie her basic information and did not want to miss the chance again.
"Hello, my name is Winnie Chambers."
Winnie introduced herself politely but simply.
"Miss Chambers has a very nice name. Where do you work?"
Jack continued to ask, and Brian came over.
"Luke, Megan, I take you to wash your hands and get ready for meal."
Although Brian's tone was calm, he wrinkled eyebrows. Winnie felt uncomfortable.
"Uncle, Mommy's here to take us home. I'm coming home with Mommy for dinner."
Megan said to Brian.
"Daddy, I'm going to Auntie's."
Luke also said.
Brian did not retain, but hoped Winnie to leave earlier. He hated the image of Jack chatting with Winnie.
Winnie understood Brian's impatience and said.
"Sir, I'm so busy with my work that I won't have dinner with you. And I am not going to say hello to the visitor, please help me to explain."
She knew Rufus was really want to stay her, also knew that only Rufus cared about her. But because of Brian, she could not stay.
Rufus did not continue to detain her.
"Megan, Luke, get in the car."
Winnie gave Rufus an apologetic smile and left with the children.
"Brother, you come at the wrong time. You don’t give me chance to talk with beauty."
Jack looked at the car to leave and complained.
"Stay away from her, she's not one of those women around you."
Brian's tone was obviously with warning.
"What is the difference? She just has a kid. It doesn't matter."
Jack said arrogantly, which annoyed Brian.
"Put your energy into your work and you can achieve great achievement."
Brian said coldly and directly turned to leave, leaving Jack who was puzzled.
Brian returned to Stella, looking upset.
"Why did Winwin leave?"
"She needs to work."
Brian answered simply, but he felt uncomfortable.
"Brother, doesn't Luke come back?"
Jack came over and asked, actually, he wanted to know more information about Winnie through Luke.
"He lives there, and the kindergarten is there."
Brian still said in a cold voice. Seeing that Jack had bad intention, Brian got annoyed.
"Brian, isn’t it not good for our children to live in a classmate's home?"
"Luke's kindergarten is over there. It's a waste of time to pick him up, so I let him stay with a classmate. That's all for now, and we'll see about it later."
Brian didn't shy away from the subject, because they would ask about it sooner or later.
"When Wendy comes back, ask Wendy to take Luke. Don't bother his classmate’s parents."
Thomas said to Brian as an elderly.
"We will communicate with Wendy when she comes back."
As Brian's voice just fell, Wendy's phone call came in.
Brian took the phone toward the door and picked up the phone while walking.
Brian said coldly.
Wendy wanted to speak but stopped, as if there was something to say.
“What's the matter?”
"I... I don't know what to say."
Wendy said hem and haw.
"Say what you like."
Brian was impatient and worried.
"I'm sorry, Brian, but I can't seem to go back."
Wendy put the words out.
“What do you mean?”
Brian suddenly felt that something was wrong and got nervous.
"I... As the time for my return approached, I found that I was getting more and more nervous and wanted to escape. Brian, I have been thinking about it all day, and at last I understand why I am in such a mood."
Wendy stopped and wanted to see what would Brian response.
But Brian did not speak and remained silent.
"Brian, I'm sorry. I still can't accept the fact that you have a child. I think our love is no longer simple. I can't accept such love."
Brian said, but to his surprise, he did not feel sad then he heard that.
“I'm sorry I can't go back, Brian. I'm sorry I've kept you waiting for so many years. Don't wait any longer. Get married when you meet the right person."
Wendy finished in one breath and hung up the phone as quickly as she could.
And Brian stopped his pace at the gate.
He was stunned holding the mobile phone. He did not feel hurt but relaxed. It was as if a heavy stone had been lifted from his heart. It was as if the sun had finally appeared in a rainy sky.
Brian's face gradually showed a smile, a relaxing smile.
His smile got brighter and brighter and he got excited.
He did not have any concerns now and the only choice was Winnie.
As he was about to call Winnie, his phone rang.
Brian picked it up with displeasure. Klara's voice was heard.
"Mr. Bennet, there is emergency situation in HK, you are needed to solve the problem."
Brian was to get angry, but at this time he could only focus on business.
"Book air ticket, you and Calvin go with me, get the relevant documents ready."
After giving the order, Brian hung up the phone and returned to his car. He drove away without telling anyone.
In the car.
Brian used his headset to make a call.
"Sister, tell Uncle Thomas that the company has an emergency and I have to go on a business trip."
"Okay, I'll tell him. When will you be back?"
Stella asked with concern.
"I don't know, it depends."
"All right, take care of yourself."
As the voice of Stella fell, Brian hung up the phone.
He was thinking whether he should confess his love to Winnie now, but he thought it was better to tell her face to face. Even if Winnie didn't accept him, he wouldn't give her a chance.
But now he had to call Winnie.
Winnie turned on her Bluetooth headset as she drove.
Winnie asked coldly.
"Did you tell the children that I am going to marry?"
Brian's voice was not cold but excited.
"Don’t tell them."
Brian breathed a sigh of relief.
"Don't tell them, and don't have relationship with Leo. I'm on my way to a business trip. Wait for me. I'll tell you when I get back."
Brian wanted it to be romantic, so he didn't say anything over the phone, only to tell Winnie to wait for him.
"I don't understand."
Winnie was confused. What did he want to say? Why was it related to Leo?
"Don't ask why, wait for me.”
Brian hung up the phone after that. Although his tone was overbearing, his heart was sweet. Only then did he know that he was so eager to be with Winnie.
