Chapter 255 I’m Really Not Afraid Of Lightning.
Half an hour later, in the dining room. Sitting at the dining table, Joey looked at the kitchen from time to time. From his point of view, he could only vaguely see a tall figure standing in front of the countertop. After a while, the person inside finally came out with a bowl of steaming noodles in his hand. Victor put the bowl of noodles in front of him and said, “Tomato and egg noodles. It’s too late. Eating too much is not good for your stomach. Go to bed after having the noodles.” Then he turned around and was about to leave. Suddenly, a resistance stopped him from walking forward. With his dark eyes slightly darkened, Victor turned his head and saw a small hand clenching the corner of his clothes, which was a little tight. There were several scratches on the originally ironed corner of his clothes. He didn’t like others to touch him, which was always the case. Besides, the boy in front of him was the son of Odin. He should have left without a backward glance. But when he looked at his little hand tightly clenching his clothes, he didn’t pull it away. Victor just frowned slightly and asked, “What else can I do for you?” “Where are you going?” Noticing the indifference in his eyes, Joey pursed his lips and thought of what Maria had said to him. She said that his biological father, the man in front of him, had wanted to kill him and his mother with his own hands.
Thinking of this, Joey let go of him. Maybe it was because of the blood relationship, or maybe it was because he was too hungry. Seeing that his scummy father went to the kitchen to cook for him as soon as he heard that he was hungry, he actually wanted to be close to him. Joey changed the subject and the corner of his mouth twitched, “It’s okay. I…” He raised his eyes and looked into Victor’s dark eyes. He blinked his big eyes and suddenly bit back the words he would like to have said.
After waiting for a while, his eyes darkened when Victor couldn’t hear what Joey wanted to say. He glanced around and found that there were only the two of them in the empty dining room.
Looking out from the landing glass door, a white light flashed through the night sky. A dull rumble of thunder came from afar, not too loud, but it was a sign of rain. Victor’s eyes alighted on Joey’s face again, “Are you afraid of thunder?” He asked in a low voice.
“…… What?” Joey was stunned for a moment, ‘Thunder?’ Before he could react, the thunder exploded overhead suddenly with a loud rumble. Startled, Joey almost reflexively got out of the chair and threw himself into the arms of Victor. Joey’s height was no more than his thigh. He bumped into him and held his leg. Feeling the strength of Joey’s embrace, Victor’s heart skipped a beat. He lowered his head and looked at the fluffy head of Joey. For a moment, he didn’t know what to do. Lightning flashed and thunder rumbled outside the room. He was a little distracted and raised his hand above his head. His movement was a little clumsy and gentle when he rubbed his head two times. “Don’t be afraid.” He comforted him stiffly. Feeling the touch coming from above his head, Joey’s body stiffened a little unconsciously. He raised his head and looked into the eyes of Victor. Letting go of him, he took a few steps back and explained with embarrassment. “I’m not afraid of it. I was just shocked by the sudden thunder just now.” “Okay.” Victor replied to him in a low voice. But it seemed that he didn’t believe his explanation very much. He glanced at the noodles on the table and reminded, “If you don’t eat it now, the noodles will be cold.” “I’m really not afraid of thunder.” Joey didn’t care about the noodles, but he was a little concerned about Victor’s disbelief in his words and explained to him stubbornly. Victor looked at him and his gaze met his. After staring at each other for a long time, Victor suddenly bent down and picked him up and put him on the chair, “Well, you’re not afraid of thunder. I trust you. Can you have it now?”
Joey was speechless. Listening to his tone of coaxing children, Joey still felt it perfunctory. He moved his lips and wanted to say something, but he saw that Victor pulled out the chair beside him and sat down. He blinked his eyes in confusion. Noticing that he was looking at him, Victor didn’t say anything in a hurry. Instead, he took out his phone and sent a message to Ivan before explaining calmly. “I’ll sit down and have a rest. You can continue to eat.”
But his scummy father didn’t seem to want to rest at all when he turned around and was about to leave just now?! As soon as Victor finished his words, he lowered his head and continued to deal with his business on the phone. After looking at him up and down for a while, Joey slowly picked up his chopsticks to eat the noodles. There were green onions in the noodles, but he didn’t like green onions. So he chose to pick them out bit by bit. “Don’t be picky about food.” Suddenly, Victor, who was working with his head down, raised his head and looked at him, saying in a deep voice.
