Marry a Vampire - Chapter 29
Chapter 29 Neglection is cruel
Momo was lying on Na Ze’s body, sleeping and waking up one night, and after a while she opened her eyes and looked at the window, trying to see Na Ze’s familiar figure from the fluttering curtains. Unfortunately, she was disappointed every time. It was already 6am or 7am in the morning when she could not resist the drowsiness. Then, she slept until 2pm in the afternoon.
Waking up in a trance to look at the unfamiliar surroundings, Momo then realized that her husband was really upset! She touched her painful head, trying to shake her head and the confused chaos within, she turned over and got out of bed without caring about the ache in her body. Her first reaction was to rush into the baby’s room, she saw her baby holding a half-cut apple and was sound asleep, and there were tears in the corner of his eyes which made her feel heartbroken.
Thinking about Na Ze who didn’t follow along, Momo had to hug her son carefully and went out to invite the servant to take care of the child. Who knew that the moment she passed Lucifer to her, the blood servant’s hand immediately showed signs of burns and the baby started crying. Thinking about the changes in the child now, Momo vaguely felt that she was different from the blood race, so she had to go home and feed the child herself. She ate something in convenience and then went out to the building where Na Ze went to work. She had no choice, this is the only place she knew that Na Ze would appear.
Momo used to follow Na Ze directly upstairs from the exclusive elevator in the parking lot, or she was hugged and was covered by her eyes, and then opened to his office, entered the towering building from the main entrance or towards the head department once. She is wearing a pure white-colored elderdown today, surrounded by a dark green-colored plaid scarf which is simple and elegant. The child in her arms is also very cute, so when she walked into the lobby, she immediately attracted the attention of the few people. The lady at the reception desk smiled. “Hello, ma’am, what can I help you with?”
“Hello, I want to see…,” Momo thought for a while, and it seemed that she had not heard Na Ze about his specific position so she had to ask vaguely, “The chairman is Naze Ventrue?”
“I’m sorry, Madam, our chairman never sees guests.” The brunette girl who asked with a smile did not diminish but just bowed her head to continue her work.
“Never seen a guest?” What’s the rule? Momo didn’t really understand and looked around. The simple and luxurious decoration made full use of the illumination of the sun. The well-dressed people walked slowly or quickly. At first glance, they are like ordinary humans. Momo twisted her eyebrows, remembering that Na Ze once said that the company was started by the blood family, except for the senior management are all human workers and they will be contacted through the Internet or by telephone during working hours, and will not have too much contact to avoid violence. This is to prevent exposing their identities.
How did she forget this? Momo sighed annoyedly, she wondered about what she should do now. Na Ze didn’t bring anything and she couldn’t get in touch, as for his friends and subordinates who he knew, she never paid attention to it. She realised how she neglected Na Ze and never paid attention to his life.
Lucifer moved restlessly in her arms, seeming to be dissatisfied with her mother holding herself stiffly. Momo changed his position and hugged him which exposed an unconsciousness to the staff at the reception with a smile. “Well, I want to ask, do you know that your chairman is married?”
“Ah, of course.” The brunette girl raised her head suspiciously and the girl next to her also looked at Momo.
Momo took a deep breath. In fact, she blushed about what she was about to say. “If I said that I am his wife, can you verify the authenticity and if you can find out and the truth, can you help to see if he is in the company? “
The two girls froze for a moment. Apparently, they had never encountered such a request. After thinking of the content, they hurriedly left their work in a tumultuous manner. Some nervously began to talk to the intercom and swept the camera lens towards Momo. After a while, it seems that they got a positive answer and at the same time, she looked at Momo with a polite expression. “Mrs. Momo, good day!”
“Is he in the company?” Momo ignored the etiquette, she only cared about where Na Ze went.
“The Vice President said that the Chairman will take a vacation before Christmas and will not come to work for the time being. Ma’am, do you need to take a break upstairs?”
“No need.” Momo laughed self-deprecatingly. She suddenly remembered that the matter about taking a leave, Na Ze also told her and said that he would take her back to Swan Castle on Christmas Eve when the twelve o’clock sounded. At the time, he wanted to tell her the secrets that belonged to them, but she had forgotten all these things. She had always been under his indulgence and acted according to his preferences never taking into account his feelings.
She always emphasized to Na Ze that he could not deceive her or hide her, but when he faced himself frankly and told her everything and every detail…how much did she really listen, and how much did she really cared?!
Walking blankly out of the building, she walked along the streets with people bustling the financial street. Christmas is full of warmth and peace, little snowflakes are falling…couples are holding hands, the children are holding balloons and following their parents, running around and even behind. Momo could no longer walk down the long and joyous road where she closed her eyes, turned towards the park on the street, took the snow off the swing and sat up. The baby twisted his little body towards the playground and looked excitedly at the young lady on the slide in the distance. Momo’s forehead rested on his little velvet hat, gently swinging the swing and becoming a little sad. “Baby, Mom lost your father.”
“Mommy,” Lucifer was happily shaking wit his hands clapped, “Papa ~”
“You’re so smart that you will call him Daddy,” Momo rubbed her baby’s head and felt sour, “If Dad knows this, he would be very happy.”
“Dad ~ Dad ~” The baby opened his hand excitedly.
“Baby, dad is not here,” Momo’s tears finally shed and her face was buried in the baby’s hat. “Mom is not good, she does not listen to Dad and does not care about him. She doesn’t even know what Dad likes and what he is busy with every day. So, he ran away and abandoned us…”
The baby tried hard to tilt his head, wanting to see what the mother behind was doing. Unfortunately, the little body twisted for a long time which still became unsuccessful. He just wanted to deflate and start to use the ultimate weapon, but realised someone was approaching him, immediately spread open two small hands. “Dad, Dad.”
“Baby, Mother…Please, don’t cry.” Momo sobbed, clasping Lucifer in both hands, sitting on the unfamiliar London street and everything left her at a loss. Na Ze, where are you?
“Don’t cry,” A warm hand touched her long hair, gently touching and sighed, “I’m still here.”
