His Genius Wife is a Superstar 222 An Important Even
Lu Zihao was too enraged to listen to her. He continued roaring at Jin Liwei's face and shaking him by the collar.
"Fifth Brother, calm down," Jin Liwei said.
Jin Liwei's shock already wore off, but he wasn't angry at being attacked by his Fifth Brother. Not at all. He was too happy to be angry at the moment. His baby girl just told him that she was falling in love with him! How could he not be happy? So he rooted himself to the floor and stood like a mountain, not retaliating against Lu Zihao.
His stupid grin enraged Lu Zihao even more.
"Big Brother, listen to what I'm going to say first," Iris pleaded, feeling frantic and annoyed at the same time. "You're mistaken! I'm not pregnant! Big Brother, you idiot!"
Lu Zihao stopped but didn't release Jin Liwei's collar yet. "You're not pregnant?"
"I'm not! I already told you!"
"Oh." He finally released Jin Liwei. "Why didn't you say so?"
"I was going to but you just assumed that I'm pregnant and then started attacking Liwei." Iris harrumphed. "Where did you even get the idea that I'm pregnant? We haven't even had full sex yet! How can I get pregnant?"
"Baby, there's no need to tell him that," Jin Liwei interjected but was ignored.
"Oh. Then what were you going to say earlier?" Lu Zihao asked.
"I was going to share with you that I just told Liwei that I think I'm falling in love with him." Iris began to feel shy again after speaking. She glanced at Jin Liwei and smiled.
Of course, the idiot gave her a loving grin.
Lu Zihao wanted to vomit watching the two.
"That's it?" he said.
Iris looked at him and blinked a few times. "What do you mean 'that's it'? Big Brother, this is my first time falling in love. It's an important event!"
Lu Zihao looked at his excited sister. Pain and unwillingness constricted his chest. His little sister would always remain his baby little sister in his eyes. He forced himself to calm down. After calming down, he realized that he was actually feeling dizzy.
'This body is too weak,' he thought, sighing.
The dizziness intensified as if his body was protesting against being called weak.
Jin Liwei caught him as he staggered.
"What's wrong?" Iris panicked.
She was concerned about her big brother, but the two men were more concerned about her. They didn't want to stress her out. What if she collapsed again?
So Lu Zihao gritted his teeth and fought against the dizziness. Jin Liwei helped him sit down on the couch.
"Little Sister, I'm fine," Lu Zihao said, waving his hand in a dismissive manner, even though he sounded weak.
"Don't worry, baby. Fifth Brother will be fine."
"But he doesn't look fine!"
Jin Liwei tried to calm her, while Lu Zihao focused on breathing. Lu Zihao felt better after a few minutes. He was soaked in sweat and looked pale, though.
Damn this body! Even if he wanted to beat up Jin Liwei, Lu Zihao wouldn't be able to because his body wouldn't allow him. He would most likely be the one knocked out first if they ever fought—knocked out by his own damn body!
"Calm down, Little Sister," he told Iris. He stood up feeling drained. "I'm fine now. I'm just going to my room to rest. I'm a little tired."
"Are you sure?" she asked.
"Yeah. When I wake up later, I want a feast. We have to celebrate this 'important event' of you falling in love." He was unwilling but he still told her, "Congratulations, Little Sister."
Iris dove into his chest and gave him a tight hug. "Thank you, Big Brother."
Chuckling, Lu Zihao rubbed her head.
Jin Liwei's expression turned ugly seeing them embrace. His jealousy and possessiveness were about to rear their ugly heads again when Lu Zihao raised an eyebrow at him. He closed his eyes and controlled himself, reminding himself that the two treated each other as siblings. Nothing more, nothing less.
Besides, his baby girl loved HIM, Jin Liwei! Haha!
The stupid grin returned to his face. The love-struck Jin Liwei was already thinking that Iris loved him when all she said was "I think I'm falling in love with you" and not "I love you".
Lu Zihao headed to his room to rest. Iris and Jin Liwei informed the cook to prepare a celebratory feast for dinner. Then they continued being lovey-dovey, sending Dom into cheering hysterics.
Later that evening, the entire household had a sumptuous dinner feast.
This was the happiest day of Jin Liwei's life so far. He couldn't wait to have more happy days with his baby girl. His Fifth Brother's earlier misunderstanding reinforced his desire to build a family with her. He could already imagine her pregnant with his child.
But of course, he needed to persuade her to marry him first.
Iris and Jin Liwei's week off from work ended on a high note.
He liked to believe that his baby girl recovered well because he showered her with his constant love and pampering. As for him, he was of course brimming with love and happiness.
Too bad that they only had one week off. He wanted to extend it but Iris was adamant in returning to work. His lady's wish was his command, but he made her promise not to push herself too hard in the following days.
First day of their return to work.
His baby girl was still deeply sleeping when he left home before sunrise. He immediately dove back to work as if he didn't leave at all. There were no problems during his absence because Grandpa Lu took care of everything. In fact, the company's performance increased under Grandpa Lu's leadership.
Jin Liwei was still love-struck but he didn't let it affect his work performance. He was even more serious and motivated now because in addition to running his company, he was also pushing his plans to right his wrongs into motion.
He needed to do all of these before he could tell his baby girl the truth to show her his sincerity and resolve in asking for her forgiveness.
"W-what? No! Big Brother, wait!" Iris squeezed herself between the two men. "Please let go of Liwei! Stop!"
