Hearing these words, Sophia felt a surge of gratification; it turned out that Colin had done a good job raising his son. He was such a little gentleman.

"I don't have anything particular in mind now. Why don't you choose a restaurant?"

Ambrose thought for a moment and said, "Daddy once took me to a Western restaurant on the top floor of this building. Let's go there."

"Okay!"

Standing on Ambrose's left side and right side, Wendy and Sophia held one hand each, and they all proceeded to the elevator.

As they were about to go to the top floor, Sophia saw a toy store. She stopped and said, "Brody, would you like Aunt Sophia to buy you a toy?"

Wendy wanted to turn down the offer because he already had too many toys at home. But then she remembered that it would be the first gift from his birth mother, so she didn't say anything.

Ambrose, on the contrary, was thrilled to hear it. "Yes! Aunt Sophia, what are you going to get me?" he jumped with joy and asked.

"Well, how about we go inside and pick one?"

"Okay! You are so nice, Aunt Sophia! Come on, let me give you a kiss!"

"... Hahaha! You are so adorable!" Sophia bent down and kissed Ambrose on the cheek.

To her surprise, Ambrose didn't seem very happy about the kiss. "I am supposed to kiss you, not you kissing me, Aunt Sophia, " he pouted.

"All right, all right!" Sophia bent over and let Ambrose give her a kiss on the cheek.

Wendy was very pleased to see that the mother and her son were getting along so well. She had been taking care of the kid since he was born, but seldom did she see him get this happy.

In the toy store

Sophia soon got lost in the sea of toys for little boys. However, it didn't take Ambrose long to pick out something he liked. "Aunt Sophia, I want this one!"

Looking over to where he pointed, Sophia saw a glossy white racing yacht with light blue accents.

A saleslady stepped forward and gave an overview of the toy. She said, "This is a high-speed remote control racing yacht. It is made of glass fiber. Baking varnish was used to treat the surface of the material, same as what one uses for cars. It can reach a maximum, constant speed of 90 km/h. Moreover, it's equipped with a 2.4G transmitter and has a solid waterproof protection..."

Sophia had no idea of what those technical terms mean, but when she saw the way Ambrose's eyes glowed as he listened to the description of the racing yacht, she knew she would buy it for him.

"He had always been very enthusiastic about boats, racing yachts, and stuff like that, " Wendy said with a wry smile. Indeed, Ambrose's room was already filled with different models of boats, racing yachts, and similar toys.

Sophia took note of this hobby of Ambrose and kept it in mind.

The racing yacht costed more than six thousand yuan, but Sophia bought it without the slightest hesitation. Wendy tried to stop her. The racing yacht was too expensive, but Sophia insisted. She was glad she can buy him a gift.

Six thousand yuan was not a lot of money for her. She had been saving up to repay Colin.

After they had entered the elevator, Ambrose asked Sophia excitedly, "Aunt Sophia, would you please come visit us next weekend, so we can play this racing yacht together?"

'Next weekend?' Sophia went through her work schedule in her mind and decided that if she worked a few extra hours on the weekdays, she would be able to make it on the weekend. She, then, nodded and said yes.

Upon hearing that, Ambrose did a little dance of happiness.

Wendy was amazed to see her grandson dance for joy. She said to Sophia, "He is not normally like this. He is usually arrogant and maybe even a little cold. Even when he was excited, he wouldn't let it show."

'Arrogant and cold?' Sophia was amused. However, when she looked at his little face once again, she did find traces of arrogance and coldness there.

The elevator arrived at the top floor, and they all stepped out.

"Welcome!" Six ushers greeted them and showed them in.

Wait...

Out of the corner

of her eye, she saw two people sitting by the window. She instantly recognized them and stopped abruptly.

Ambrose also noticed them and shouted, "Daddy!" Colin turned and saw them.

His eyes were dark, but his expression remained.

Dorothy, however, was not calm at all. Her face darkened as soon as she saw the three of them.

"Mother, Brody, " Colin responded, as he and Dorothy rose from their seats. He walked over to his mother and son.

Dorothy quickly regained her composure and changed into a docile smile. "Aunt, Brody, you are here too. What a coincidence!"

As if following an unspoken rule, both Colin and Dorothy ignored Sophia.

Ambrose grabbed Colin by the hand and said, "Daddy, let me introduce my new friend. This is Aunt Sophia, and I am buying her dinner tonight!"

"How do you do, Miss Lo?" Colin asked distantly.

Sophia recovered from shock and found herself in a very awkward situation. As she was about to say something, she heard someone who had just entered the restaurant speak in their direction. "Colin, Dorothy, you're both here early. Oh, Wendy, you are here, too."

Sophia didn't see her, but she recognized the voice - Marcella.

Apparently, this was a family reunion.

Sophia didn't want to embarrass herself in front of these people, so she turned to Ambrose, with a regretful look on her face, and said, "Brody, today doesn't seem to be a good day for dinner. How about I buy you dinner some other day?"

Ambrose was very disappointed. "Why?" he moaned.

Seeing that, Dorothy hurriedly walked over to Ambrose and held him in her arms. "Brody, Aunt Sophia has work to do. We can't make her do things she doesn't want to do, okay?" she said.

"No!" Ambrose protested and broke loose from the hug, leaving Dorothy a little embarrassed.

He grabbed Sophia by the hand and begged, "Aunt Sophia, please don't go. I want to have dinner with you. My Daddy can help you with your work. He is very good!" ... Sophia's heart skipped a beat. Of course she knew he was good.

Meanwhile, she was also surprised to see that Ambrose wanted her instead of his mother.

Trying to comfort the little guy, she crouched down, looked at Ambrose's eyes and said, "All right, let's go and find a table to sit down."

"Yes! And I want grandma to sit with us." Gregary and Marcella were clearly upset. However, Ambrose didn't care about how they felt. He dragged Sophia and Wendy to the next table and sat down.

At first, Wendy didn't know what to do. Then, she decided that she might as well sit with her grandson. In an attempt to lighten the atmosphere, she added carelessly, "Brody, you are being naughty again."

Marcella looked at Sophia with a scowl. 'What a cunning woman, ' she thought, 'She is smart enough to know that to win a man's heart is to win over his family first.

No wonder Dorothy said Sophia is now a strong competitor.

Also, the plain sky blue suit she is wearing does look good on her.

But I won't worry about it. All her efforts wouldn't make any difference.' "Dorothy, Colin, come on, let's get seated, " Marcella said, as her thoughts switched back to reality.

The four of them sat at their table. Both by the window, their table and Ambrose's were next to each other, so whatever was said at one table can be heard clearly at the other.

"Colin, you have been very busy lately. Dorothy had cooked some chicken soup for you. Have you been having it everyday?" Marcella was very happy with her son-in-law. She couldn't get enough of him because he had far exceeded her expectations.

Colin nodded slightly and said, "Yes, I did. But Dorothy doesn't need to do that. She married me to be my precious wife. I don't want her to overwork herself."

Dorothy flushed and said, "It's nothing, really."

Sophia didn't hear the rest of the conversation because Ambrose was bombarding her with questions of what she'd like to order.

Sophia gathered her thoughts and replied, "This one looks delicious. Let's have the Pan-fried Codfish Fillet. It's good for children."
