Chapter 482: His Presence Felt a Little Redundant?

Like a little kitten, Chi Jiao accepted the fish from him.

She gave Quan Jue a bright smile. “Brother Quan, I want to eat prawns.”

Quan Jue nodded and immediately peeled a prawn for her.

Looking at this sweet and loving scene, Chi Mingwei felt that his presence was a little redundant.

Ahem, ahem.

Chi Mingwei cleared his throat loudly.

Chi Jiao turned her attention to him and asked worriedly, “Dad, is your pharyngitis acting up again?”

“No, I’m fine.” As Chi Mingwei spoke, he picked up a green vegetable and placed it in her bowl. “You’re still growing. Don’t be picky. Eat some green vegetables.”

Chi Jiao looked at the vegetables in the bowl and puffed her cheeks.

She was a typical carnivore.

But her elders all loved to emphasize the fact that she must eat more vegetables.

Actually, what she wanted to say was that at this age, she would no longer grow any taller.

However, she had always respected her elders’ opinions, so she still ate some vegetables obediently.

After dinner, Quan Jue returned to his room. Just as Chi Jiao was about to return to her own room, Chi Mingwei couldn’t resist asking her to stay to watch the news.

Only then did Chi Jiao know that she was on the news.

“This was purely an accident, Dad,” Chi Jiao said sincerely.

“You’ll definitely lose your life if you fall from such a high place!” Chi Mingwei looked at her sternly. He didn’t seem to be taken in by her pitiful expression at all. “Did you not consider how dangerous it was back then?”

“Lanlan is my friend. I didn’t think too much back then.” Chi Jiao lowered her head and said, “And I only went to help because I was confident.”

If she didn’t have full confidence, she wouldn’t have acted on her own accord.

That would only harm herself and Yi Lanlan.

When you wanted to save others, you had to a.n.a.lyze your own abilities first.

Chi Jiao knew this very well.

Chi Mingwei sighed helplessly. “Jiaojiao, I know you’re very smart, but under such circ.u.mstances, anything can happen. You’re my only daughter, so I don’t want anything to happen to you, understand?”

“I understand, Daddy. I’ll be more careful in the future,” Chi Jiao said.

“Rest early.” Chi Mingwei reached out to touch her head.

“Goodnight, Daddy.”

When Chi Jiao returned to her room, she saw an unanswered video call and several unread messages.

These were from her brothers.

They must have seen the news and were asking after her.

The video call was sent by Yan Zhengchen. Chi Jiao first sent a short message to Gu Xia and the rest, telling them that she was fine. Then, she sent Yan Zhengchen a video call request.

After the video call was connected, Yan Zhengchen’s handsome face appeared on the screen.

He seemed to have just finished working out. His white short-sleeved s.h.i.+rt was soaked with sweat and stuck tightly to his body. One could vaguely see his perfect muscles, which exuded a manly aura.

“Jiaojiao, are you alright?” His deep and hoa.r.s.e voice was inexplicably s.e.xy.

Chi Jiao looked at him with admiration. She smiled and shook her head. “I’m fine, Brother Chen. Don’t worry.”

Yan Zhengchen nodded, picked up the bottle of mineral water beside him, opened the cap, and took a big gulp.
