Chapter 1215 I Care About You, Too
Tessa nodded with a smile; her almond-shaped eyes were as bright as the stars. “I’ll be careful. Also, I’ll surely rest up when this is over.”
For the rest of the dinner, the atmosphere was incredibly harmonious. Stefania and Tessa were chatting like friends, their conversations ranging from music to fashion, whereas Remus discussed work-related matters with Tobias and Nicholas. Kieran, on the other hand, was keeping Gregory company, making the boy burst out laughing with his lively disposition.
When they finished having dinner, it was already late, so Nicholas took Tessa and Gregory home. The smile on Tessa’s face never faded as the three of them were on their way home. At the sight of this, Nicholas wrapped his arms around her and tickled her petite, upturned nose with his hand. He smiled. “You look all over the moon.”
“Of course.” Tessa’s eyes curved as she hugged the man around the waist with a Duchenne smile. “I think Grandpa has at least accepted me at the moment. As long as I work harder and better in the future, he’ll stop giving you a hard time.”
It’d be a lie to say Nicholas wasn’t visibly moved by such words. He’d always known that Tessa was trying very hard to improve herself to make herself worthy of him. “As I said, you don’t have to work so hard. You can rely on me for everything.” His voice dripped with indescribable affection as he tightened his arms around her.
Tessa shook her head while nestling in his arms. “I know you care about me, but I care about you, too.”
“I care about you, too, Mommy.” Not wanting to be left out at this moment, Gregory threw himself at Tessa’s knees.
Seeing how adorable he was, Tessa was instantly overwhelmed. “I care about you, too, Greg.” She pinched the boy’s plump cheek.
With that, the mother and son began frolicking with each other.
Seeing how his annoying son vied with him again for Tessa’s attention, Nicholas wished he could just throw him out of the car.
The next morning, the three of them sat in the dining room having breakfast, during which time Nicholas asked Tessa, “Do you have any plans for today?”
“Not much. I’ll be at home today, I think,” Tessa replied with a smile. As her previous training was too tiring, Sofia purposely gave her a few days off so that she could have a good rest.
Gregory, on the other hand, was overjoyed. “Hurray! So, Mommy can stay with me at home!”
Seeing how delighted he looked at this very moment, Tessa felt rather guilty, knowing she had neglected him a lot during her training previously. She gently stroked his hair and replied with a faint smile, “I’ll keep you company at home for the next few days.”
When Gregory heard this, he laughed even more heartily.
After having breakfast, Nicholas left for his office.
Tessa played with Gregory for a while since the kid would have lessons soon.
Soon after, she became the only person left at home with nothing to do. Unable to sit still, she got up and went to the music room, wanting to do some maintenance on each of the violins. Just when she was cleaning up the room, her phone rang; it was a phone call from Alice. She asked, “Tessa, the date has been finalized for the filming of the promotional video. The filming is scheduled for this Friday. Are you okay with that?”
“Yeah, I’m fine with that,” Tessa agreed immediately.
When Nicholas came home that evening, she went up to him and took his suitcase from him like a virtuous wife. Then, she helped him take off his suit jacket and hung it on the coat stand nearby.
As Nicholas watched his wife bustle around for his sake, the tenderness in his eyes was so overwhelming that one would almost drown in it; he felt that such a life was blissfully ordinary. He waited until Tessa was done before hugging her and rubbing his forehead against hers. “It’s so wonderful to have you here.”
A sweet smile curved Tessa’s lips as she listened to the man’s loving voice.
The couple cuddled together for a little while in the hallway before entering the living room hand in hand.
After they took their seats, Tessa talked about the filming of the promotional video. “Alice called me this morning, saying that the filming has been scheduled for this Friday.”
Nicholas nodded without any objections. He asked, “Where will the filming take place?”
