Luna took Nellie and Neil back to Blue Bay Villa, and she texted Anne that Neil was with her on the way there.
“Tsk, tsk! The scumbag’s house is pretty nice.“ It was Neil’s first time in the villa. As he eyed the villa’s understated luxury, he could not help but scoff, “ The four of us lived in a dozen square meters space when we were overseas, but he lived in such a huge place here alone! “
Luna furrowed her brows. “Neil, watch what you’re saying! “ Luckily, the maids were off work at that time, or they would have been in big trouble if someone overheard him!
‘I ‘ve looked around, and no else but the three of us are in this building right now.“
Neil smiled cheekily and raised his pinky finger, tugging at Luna’s fingers. “Mommy, I know what you’re worried about. I’ll be good! “
“Tsk.” Nellie rolled her eyes at Neil. She crossed her arms at her chest and sat on the sofa angrily. “If you were, you wouldn’t have landed Daddy in the hospital and Mommy taking the blame for you.”
The more she spoke, the angrier she got. “Neil, I know you and Nigel hate Daddy, but now isn’t the time for payback! We still need Daddy’s help for Nigel’s sickness.”
Nellie referring to Joshua as Daddy did not sit well with Neil. He pursed his lips. “Since when have you
gotten so close with him?“
“This has nothing to do with closeness.“ Nellie panicked a little. “We genuinely need his help right now! “ Seeing how flushed Nellie’s face was, Neil helplessly pursed his lips. “Okay, fine. I know I did wrong.
There won’t be a next time.”
He only wanted to play a prank on Joshua, but who knew that the scumbag would have such a weak stomach? “Enough. “ Luna inhaled deeply and got the guest bed ready. “You’ll stay here for the night.
Tomorrow, I’ll get a servant to send you back.“
“Hmm. Neil entered the guest bedroom and obediently sat on the bed. “Goodnight, Mommy! “
Looking at his dark eyes, Luna rather worriedly instructed, “Sleep tight. Don’t run about or wander around. Do you hear me?“ “Yes! “
Neil pouted and grumbled, “Mommy, I’m your son. Can you stop watching out for me like I’m a thief?”
Luna rolled her eyes at him. “That’s because you have too many terrible ideas.”
Among the three children, Neil was the most active one and the brainiest one, too. He would always do things that baffle and confuse other people.
“Don’t worry! “ Neil obediently laid on the bed and went under the covers. “I’ll rest properly. It’s almost ten, and if I don’t go to bed, I’ll mess up my own body clock! Don’t worry, Mommy! “
It was only when Neil laid on the bed and closed his eyes did Luna let her guard down a little. She switched off the lights in the guest bedroom.
The moment the room door was shut, Neil immediately opened his eyes. He hid under the covers and carefully dialed Nigel.
At that moment, in a patient’s ward across the ocean, it was a sunny afternoon. Nigel was sunbathing and in a good mood when he received his younger brother’s call. “It should be quite late over there, right? Why are you calling?”
“Nigel,” spoke Neil in a half-whisper, “You’ll never guess where I am right now! Take a guess! “ Nigel on the other end of the line paused for a while. “You’re in that scumbag’s house?”
Neil was speechless—deflated, even. “How did you know?”
