Never Late, Never Away Chapter 2525

“I invited Mr. Dustin here. Is there a problem?” Lucius tilted his head, perplexed.

“It’s no problem at all. Joan, quick. Give Dustin a call,” Delilah urged.

Put in a tight spot, Joan looked between Lucius and Larry.

This boy. How could he just invite Dustin over without saying anything beforehand?

“No need. I’m here,” Dustin announced just as he entered the house.

Stopping in the dining room, he praised after drawing in a deep breath, “The food smells amazing!”

“Why are you here?” Jessica questioned.

“What do you mean? Didn’t you guys invite me over?” Dustin asked in return.

“Yeah. Didn’t Grandma say to invite everyone for a meal together? So I called Mr. Dustin too,” Lucius said innocently.

“Let’s eat!” Larry abruptly barked.

“Let’s eat, let’s eat!” Delilah echoed, trying to diffuse the situation.

The initial happy and vibrant atmosphere was ruined by Dustin’s arrival.

Everyone was seated around the dining table, but the air was thick with tension.

“What’s wrong? Why is everyone acting so strangely?” Dustin broke the silence with a rueful look on his face.

“Everything seems fine to me,” Lucius remarked.

Perhaps it was because Dustin took great care of Lucius in the past, that was why the latter had a good impression of him. Naturally, he felt it was a must to have him over during this gathering.

“Let’s eat,” Delilah urged again.

And so, everyone bowed their heads and dug in. Not a single word was uttered throughout the entire dinner.

There were initially some after-dinner activities, but they were immediately canceled due to Dustin’s attendance.

“Mom, didn’t you say we were going to play games after dinner?” Lucius hugged Joan’s legs and asked in an expectant tone.

“Be a good boy, Lucius. It’s too late now. Mr. Caspian and Ms. Zimmer have to go home,” Joan coaxed.

Caspian’s heart ached when he noticed the disappointment in the boy’s eyes. Bending down, he hoisted the boy into his arms.

“I’ll play with you next time, okay? I promise.” Caspian placed a gentle kiss on his forehead.

“Deal!” Lucius chirped happily.

Watching this scene, an odd glint appeared in Jessica’s eyes.

On the way home, she glanced at him and raised the question that had been gnawing on her mind. “Do you like kids a lot?”

“Mm-hmm. I do,” Caspian answered without giving it much thought.

“But Caspian…” Jessica looked him square in the eye and muttered, “You know that my career is really important to me, so I might not be able to give you children.”

She knew that she needed to make things clear, lest she unwittingly offered him false hope.

“I never said I wanted you to give me children,” Caspian replied.

“But I’m sure you’d want an heir.”

Caspian reached over to curl an arm around her and reassured, “We can always go for adoption.”

Having said that, the two of them resumed chatting happily.

“Hey, if we really adopt a child, should the child have your last name or mine?” asked Caspian.

“Mine, of course!”

“Why? Children should always follow their father’s last name!”

Both of them started bickering again, all the way back to their home.

“I’ll take my leave now,” Dustin announced at the door.

“Bye, Mr. Dustin!” Lucius waved at him.

Larry was sitting on the sofa in the living room, exuding an imposing aura as he completely ignored the man bidding farewell at the door.

Lucius threw himself into Larry’s arms and asked curiously, ”Dad, why didn’t you say goodbye to Mr. Dustin?”

Larry clucked his tongue and grumbled, “So many questions.”

How am I supposed to tell him that Dustin is my love rival?

“Lucius, it’s time for bed. You need to wake up early for school tomorrow,” Delilah urged.

Lucius peered at Larry for a moment longer before obeying Delilah, padding toward his room.

“What happened earlier is all my fault. I didn’t make things clear with Lucius, so he ended up calling Dustin over,” Delilah said guiltily.
