"Why do your answers sound so thin and unconvincing to me?" Edward was just starting to recover after the surgery, and he was still too weak to stay awake for a long time. All his friends came to visit him after work today, and after talking with them all, he began to feel tired again. His head got heavier and his smile was a bit stiff, as if he would fall asleep any second.

"Daddy, look at me! How could I ever lie to you? How could a liar have such a sincere and innocent look?" Justin hurried to explain himself as he ran towards Edward's bedside with a sweet smile. He grabbed Edward's arm and leaned forward to press his chubby face on Edward's, wriggling his little body like an excited puppy.

"Don't lie, you little devil. Look at Auntie Leena, staring at you with a sharp glance. If her eyes could kill, you'd be dead a thousand times over. Are you sure you want to stick to your answer?" Edward smiled as he pulled Justin's little head closer and whispered in his ear, a hint of slyness flashing through his deep blue eyes.

"What? No way! I'm not holding a grudge against her anymore; how could she be mad at me?" Justin immediately turned around. What he saw was that Leena was chatting with Daisy joyfully, blissfully unaware of anything else. She wasn't glaring at Justin at all! What did Edward say she was doing? The only conclusion Justin could come to was that his dear daddy had just played a prank on him. Justin was a clever boy, and he soon realized he'd fallen for daddy's joke. He turned again to Edward, who smirked confidently and winked at him, which confirmed his suspicion.

"Daddy! You lied to me!" Justin pouted and pretended to be angry with Edward. He threw himself back to Edward's bedside to bury his face in his arm, and wriggled his little body again, as if he could shake all the embarrassment off in this way. Edward not only saw through Justin's lie, but also tricked him. Justin felt embarrassed all of a sudden, and he didn't want others to see his glowing pink cheeks.

"All's fair in war. What, little one? Who said that only you can trick me and I can't do the same thing to you?" Edward gently pinched Justin's adorable face and chuckled. Like father, like son. Justin might be as

augh out loud as she thought of how frustrated Edward must be feeling at the moment.

Upon hearing Leena's words, Tom's mouth twitched. Only Leena would dare keep provoking Edward when he was on the verge of exploding without worrying that he would get back at her later. Even if she irritated Edward, she was still his beloved little sister, and he wouldn't really get mad at her. Not for long anyway. Tom then thought of how miserably he had been treated as compared to Leena. Maybe things would be better if he were a girl. That way, Edward wouldn't punch him or take away his invaluable medicine, and he could get back all the money Edward owed him, including the price of the medicine and this VVIP ward.

"Little girl, aren't you supposed to go home now?" Edward retorted sourly as he squinted at the beautiful girl who laughed so hard that she couldn't even stand upright. Edward was a bit upset that Daisy didn't get the hint of his flirtation but Leena did, and she was making fun of both of them. As much as he adored Leena, Edward wouldn't allow Leena to stay here and watch as he made a fool of himself. Therefore he pretended to put on a serious face and drive her out.

"I'm not in a hurry." Leena immediately saw through Edward's intentions. The show had just started, how could she drop it and leave now? No way! She intended to stay for a little while longer here with them. 'I don't have anyone to keep me company at home anyway, ' Leena thought to herself gloomily.
