He liked her too much to the extent that he was suffering for it.
In fact, he loved her so much that he was deeply afraid of losing her.
Her words wounded Shen Luo’an so badly that it watered down the raging fire within him.
Since the door was open, Nanny He had heard the noise from inside the room and came over to have a look.
She was a little concerned about them.
She turned around quickly, picked up the baby, and left.
Shen Luo’an was aware of the movement behind him. He gazed at Shen Manting and let out a soft sigh.
He walked forward and gently held her in his arms.
Shen Manting sniffled, wiped her face with her hands, and embraced Shen Luo’an tightly.
“Manting.” Shen Luo’an’s voice sounded a bit low, with a slight huskiness.
Shen Manting stopped crying when she heard his voice. She took in his warmth as she huddled close to him.
She buried her face in his arms and responded in a stuffy voice, “Honey.”
That simple word was her nickname for him now.
Shen Luo’an had been hearing her call him so for several days, but he was still not used to it.
This affectionate moniker, which he had been longing to hear for a long time, now barely gave him pleasure.
Shen Luo’an kissed her forehead passionately.
Shen Manting felt a ticklish sensation from his kiss. She both enjoyed it and felt a little uncomfortable at the same time.
She couldn’t decide how exactly she was feeling about it. She just shifted away from him subconsciously.
Shen Luo’an soon released her and whispered, “I’ll be very busy today. I’m going to the lab now. Please look after the baby at home and be good, okay?”
Shen Manting couldn’t tell what she was experiencing in her heart.
It was a bittersweet feeling.
However, his explanation made her feel a little less angry.
Shen Manting nodded. She put her hands on his shoulder and stood on tiptoe to kiss him. “Come home earlier,” she said softly.
Shen Luo’an felt his heart skip a beat.
He gazed at her affectionately and replied, “Okay.”
Shen Manting gazed into his eyes. They seemed to be utterly unreadable.
She couldn’t understand what exactly was lying behind his eyes.
But she could tell whether he liked her or not from his gaze.
Realizing this, Shen Manting started to smile through her tears.
She took a look at his clothes and said, “Honey, I learned how to fasten a tie yesterday. Can I do it for you?”
“Oh?” Shen Luo’an felt a little surprised. “Where did you learn it from?”
“There were some videos on my mobile phone. I decided to learn by watching them.” Shen Manting walked into the cloakroom and returned with an old tie that had not been used for a long time.
The tie featured a checkered pattern in light red and dark red. It seemed very intricate and formal.
Shen Luo’an was wearing casual attire. He didn’t need to go to the laboratory in a formal outfit.
However, Shen Luo’an could not help but look forward to it when he saw her pick up the tie.
Looking at her expectant face and her glistening eyes, he couldn’t help but grin.
He walked forward and stroked her head affectionately. “All right then, I’m going to change my clothes,” he said.
Shen Luo’an walked into the cloakroom. Just as he took off his coat, he noticed Shen Manting glaring at him with a burning gaze.
At that moment, the passion inside him was once again effortlessly ignited by her.
His throat tightened and he closed the door uncomfortably.
By the time he got out, he had changed into a formal suit.
“Wow!” Shen Manting exclaimed in amazement. “My husband is so handsome!”
