My Bossy CEO Husband Chapter 19 by I. MALCOM. Luke gazed at Wendy with pleading eyes as if he was looking at God. Meanwhile, the latter did not know what to do. “So, we’ll just let him sleep like this?”. Luke nodded crazily and uttered, “Please, Miss Finch, let him sleep a little longer. But Wendy’s legs were sore and numb! And when she tried moving them, Ryan instantly winced in his sleep. “Don’t move. Don’t move, please!”. “But my legs are numb…”. Hearing this, Luke immediately squatted down beside Wendy and massaged her calves. Shocked by that unexpected gesture, Wendy hurriedly said, “Stop. I am fine!”. “Okay!”. Luke stood up quickly and surveyed the living room. dy made up her mind and exclaimed, “Ah! Forget it!”. She couldn’t take responsibility if something bad really happened! Shrugging her shoulders, she buried her hand again in his pocket. With her eyes tightly shut, she fumbled deep down and finally grabbed hold of his phone. When she extracted the device out of his pants, she was sweating all over. Wendy didn’t have time to think too much and immediately pressed the screen only to find that his phone had a fingerprint lock. She pressed Ryan’s finger to unlock it, and voila! The screen opened, revealing a terrain of contact numbers. Roger grew up with Ryan, and the two were really good friends. Ryan must have Roger’s number on his contacts. Fortunately, there were not many people on the list, so Wendy soon found his name. Immediately, she dialed the number, but no one answered after a long while. She tried a few more times again, only to be disappointed with the same result. “He’s probably sleeping,”. Wendy uttered, staring at the phone screen. At this point, she felt really helpless, but she couldn’t just leave Ryan like this on her couch. ed in utter fear, sending her out of her sleep. When she opened her eyes, the sun had already seeped through the slits of the curtain, making the living room a little hot on a summer morning. Rubbing her eyes, Wendy turned around and saw Luke and Leo sitting on the dining chairs beside the table. Seeing that she had woken up, Luke immediately stood up and trotted over. Meanwhile, Ryan still had his head rested on her legs, breathing steadily in his dream. Gazing down at his peaceful face, Wendy did not know what to say

“What time is it no w?”Luke smiled awkw ardly and answered, . “It’s eight o’clock in t he morning!” . What?! Eight o’clock? Ryan had been sleeping for six hours! Didn’t Luke say that he would sleep for at most two or three hours? Realizing that she was fooled, Wendy glared at the man. “I didn’t lie to you. I swear! My brother use d to only sleep for three or four hours a da y. If you don’t believe me, you can ask Leo!” . Wendy then shifted her gaze at Leo, who nodd ed with a gentle smile. “What about now? Can you wake him up?” . “Please. It’s not easy for my brother to have a good sleep. I hope you can be kind enough to let him sleep a little longer. To let Ryan sleep more comfortably, Luke swi tched the central air conditioner in the liv ing room and then found a quilt to cover him. The only thing Wendy could do was watch him while she w as still stuck on the couch. At half-past eight, Ray and Pr ecious, who sported the same p ajamas, had gotten out of bed. Seeing the group of p eople in the living r oom, Raymond frowned. He wanted to say something to ma ke their presence known, but Pre cious quickly covered his mouth. “H mm …” . Confused, Ray furrowed h is brows at her and ques tioned her with his eyes. “Ray! My daddy is a sleep. Don’t speak. Yo u will wake him up. Precious spoke in a ver y low voice, careful as to not make any noise. Then, she pulled Raymond back to the corner and explained her father’s insomnia to him. Ray nodded t o show his u nderstanding. Suddenly, Wendy’s stomach gro wled, stealing the attention o f everyone in the living room. Embarrassed, she imme diately covered it and gave out a wry smile. Luke patted his head and de clared, “Oh, my bad! I was too careless. Wait a moment!” . Then, he ran to the balcony to m ake a phone call. In less than twenty minutes, the doo rbell rang, signaling that their sum ptuous breakfast had been delivered. In no time, Luke opened the door an d walked back into the living room holding several containers of food. “Dear Wendy, I don’t know wha t you and Ray like for breakfa st, so I ordered some myself. Was this the breakfast Luke ordered for them? It wa s quite too much! As Wendy watched him arranged all the food on the table, her mouth suddenly watered. That certainly didn’t look like a simple breakfas t! It clearly a buffet for the wealthy! The smell of Chinese and Western cuisines reeked in the air. Various kinds of dumplings, paired with tea e ggs, fried dough sticks, soy milk, sandwiches , bread, yogurt, and milk carpeted the table

There was even a huge seafood pizza! Not minding the extravagance of this morning meal, Wendy began munching on those foods. The people in the room didn’t want to disturb Ryan. And when his phone rang a few times, Luke took the liberty to answer it on the balcony. And when he came ba ck, he instantly swi tched off the phone. Perhaps to avoid disturbing his brother’s sleep. Leo had always reminded Luke tha t if Ryan’s insomnia persisted, he might die at such a young age. After all, he always overwork ed himself, even with just a few hours of sleep every day. So, there was nothing more impo rtant for Luke right now than t o let his brother sleep longer. Shaking his hair and flashing a grin, Luke thought proudly that he was probably the be st younger brother in the world! He was kind-hearted and very caring of his brother! Af ter their breakfast, Luke sat next to Leo, while Precious and Ray played in one corner. Leo kept quietly staring at Ray for some reason. “Hey, what are you looking at?” Luke a sked in a low voice. Raising his chin, Leo answered, “That little guy. I noticed him when he was in the hospital with Miss F inch. Don’t you think he looked familiar?” Familiar? . Luke did n’t noti ce that. He then followed Leo’s gaze and saw the litt le boy sitting upright. Unlike Precious, who was arranging the blocks quickly and, in a mess, the little boy was making the blocks into various sh apes in his hands, and all of them were extremely complicated. Seeing his work, Preciou s’s eyes lit up and stare d at Ray with admiration. The little boy was neither arrogant nor impatient, and his calm and col lected appearance was very charming. The more Luke’s gaze lingered on the ki ds, the more he was surprised to learn that the features were somewhat similar. “Oh?! Don’t you think Ray looks like Precious? Look at hi s nose and mouth! Oh, that’s probably why he looked famil iar to us! I wouldn’t have noticed it hadn’t you tell me!” . Leo looked at him sp eechlessly. “Why are you looking at m e like that?” . Luke asked, obviously st ill clueless. “Whom does Precious resemble?” . “Of cour se, my b rother…” . As soon as those words left Luke’ s mouth, his eyes widened exaggera tingly while his mouth hung agape. “Oh, my God!” he exclaime d as he stole a gaze at th e young boy one more time. It w as t rue. This little boy really look ed like his brother when th e latter was still a child. But then, his brother was naughty as a kid, and this boy loo ked more serious…Yet, looking at his face right now, Ray und eniably resembled Ryan! Oh, dear God! This was mind-blowing! . “Leo, are you saying that this little boy is my brother’s son?” . Luke asked aft er coming back to his senses
