After coaxing Zian to sleep when Singtan noticed that it was already fast midnight but his wife was nowhere to be seen, he decided to look for her.

Slowly getting down from the bed, Singtan started walking outside the room.


Outside his room.

" Mom, why aren't you sleeping?" Singtan asked.

" I am here to talk about Simon's daughter." Mother Li said.

" You don't have to worry about her, I'll take care of it." Singtan said.

Mother Li nodded her head and said," I don't doubt your capabilities. I know that there is nothing that you can not solve but I still want to remind you that this time you have so many additional little lives in and around. I want you to be extra careful. And I want you to put an end to all of this. I want my family to live in peace."

Singtan nodded his head and said," I will."

" Zian told me that Simon's daughter was asking Yumi different kinds of questions. I think by now she knows what Yumi's real identity is." Mother Li said.

Pausing for a while, she continued," I don't care what others say but for me and your father, you have a son and a daughter. We love Yumi as much as we love Zian. There is no difference between them. I am sure that Simon's daughter will take advantage of the complicated relationship that we share with Yumi and target her so I want you to be careful."

Singtan nodded his head and said," I understood mom."

" Also, your father and I will talk to Chuang tomorrow. I want you and Ming to adopt Yumi and-"

Cutting mother Li off, Singtan said," Mom this-"

" Listen to me first." Mother Li said.

Pausing for a while, mother Li continued," I wanted to talk to you and Ming about this since a really long time but- anyway. I have already discussed this with your grandparents and your father."

" But mom this is not something that only we can decide. There are so many other people who will have to approve this. And father never wanted anyone to adopt Yumi. And there is Siquan as well. No matter what, he is Yumi's biological father and we will have to take his consent as well. Things are not that easy." Singtan said.

" I have already thought about it. Yumi is a child Singtan, she needs someone whom she can rely on completely." Mother Li said.

Pausing for a while, she continued," Mian told me what happened in the kindergarten a few days ago. The teacher asked everyone their parents name but Yumi ended up saying a bunch of names. When the teacher told that a child can only have one mom and one dad, the poor little child could not say anything further. She just kept quiet. You see, I don't want that to happen again. Since Yumi is more close to you and Ming then adopting her is the best thing that you can do."

Singtan sighed and said," I don't have a problem adopting her mom. You know that even if I don't, she is still my daughter."

" Your father and I will talk to Chuang tomorrow. Leave this matter to us and focus on dealing with Simon's daughter." Mother Li said before walking towards her room.

After mother Li left, Singtan took a deep breath and started walking towards Zian and Yumi's room.


Outside Zian and Yumi's room.

When Singtan arrived outside Zian and Yumi's room, he saw Ming standing on the door.

Hugging her from behind, Singtan asked," What are you doing here?"

" Yumi had a bad dream so she woke up. I had to coax her to sleep again." Ming said.

" Zixin is okay?" Singtan asked.

Ming nodded her head and said," Yes, he is alright."

" What happened Ming?" Singtan asked.

Turning around, Ming buried her face on his chest and said." I am scared."

" What are you scared about? It's going to be alright okay? Don't worry." Singtan said.

Clutching his t-shirt, Ming said," Earlier it was just you and me Singtan but this time we have Yumi and Zian too. What if she tries to harm them? She tried to poison Huang even when all of us were present and-"

" Don't worry, we will track her down soon." Singtan said.

" And the way she was looking at you. Why do I feel like she is going to take you away from me?" Ming said.

Singtan chuckled and said," What? Take me away from you? What are you talking about? I would rather die than leave you Ming."

Hitting him on his chest, Ming said," Stop talking nonsense."

" Stop overthinking okay? Nothing is going to happen. And aren't you crying way too much these days? What is wrong with you my cry baby?" Singtan said.

" Mistakes can happen Singtan and I am just scared." Ming said.

Kissing her forehead, Singtan said," Don't worry, I'll take care of everything."

Pausing for a while, Singtan said," Mom wants us to adopt Yumi."

" But-"

" She said she will talk to father about it tomorrow." Singtan said.

" Actually even I wanted to adopt her since a really long time but since Yufan and Ling wanted to adopt them and father did not allow them to do so, I decided not to voice it out." Ming said.

" Let's see what father has to say tomorrow." Singtan said.

" Okay." Ming said.

" Ming, let's not send the kids to kindergarten for a few days." Singtan said.

Ming nodded her head and said," I'll do as you say."


Xie Mansion.

Next day, as planned mother Li along with father Li arrived at the Xie mansion along with the kids.

" What happened Meili? What did you want to talk about?" Father Xie asked.

" I think we should wait for everyone to arrive." Mother Li said.

Father Xie nodded his head and said," Okay, I have asked Yufan to come back early today."

Just then Ling came out of the kitchen with some snacks and tea.

" Where is Yufan Ling?" Father Xie asked.

Pouring tea for everyone, Ling said," He is on the way father."

After sometime, Singtan, Ming, Mike, Yutang, Yixi, Anna and Siquan arrived at mansion followed by Yufan and Sebastian.
