Lauren was stunned to hear his words, and she looked somewhat awkward.
‘He’s going to stay the night?’
Lauren had been sleeping alone with Chloe over the years.
Seeing Lauren’s stunned expression, Jordan smiled and explained, “Don’t misunderstand, I just want to spend more time with Chloe.”
He actually hadn’t seen his biological daughter for three years and now that he had met her, how could he leave after seeing her for a short while?
Jordan wished he could accompany her and stay by her side 24 hours a day.
Chloe was holding onto Jordan’s muscular arm and said, “I want Daddy to hug me to sleep tonight.”
Caught between laughter and tears, Lauren began to educate Chloe. “Chloe, stop fooling around. Don’t you feel ashamed when you say that?”
Looking a little indignant, Chloe argued, “Don’t they say that daughters are the lovers of their fathers in their past lives? I want to sleep in Daddy’s arms tonight. Mommy, are you against it because you want to vie with me for Daddy? I don’t mind letting you sleep with us tonight.”
Amused by Chloe’s words, Jordan laughed out loud.
‘This little girl is less than four years old. What goes on in her mind? She’s fascinating.’
Lauren was also very embarrassed by her daughter’s words, so much that she was too ashamed to look at Jordan.
‘What does she mean I’m vying with her for Jordan?’
‘She’s making it sound as if I’m forbidding her from sleeping together with Jordan because I want to sleep with him…’
The fact that Chloe took the initiative to mention “Daddy’s lover in the previous life” reminded Jordan of a song.
It was a song named ‘Lovers In The Past Life’.
It was written by a famous singer for his daughter, and it was full of a father’s love for his daughter and complex emotions.
Jordan had always liked this song and practiced it many times after Hailey was expecting, and he thought that he might have a daughter.
He wanted to play it for his daughter after she was born, but unfortunately, Leah was not his biological daughter.
At one point, Jordan thought that he had practiced this song for nothing.
However, Chloe had now appeared!
“Chloe, how about I play the song ‘Lovers In The Past Life’ for you?” Jordan asked, looking at Chloe smilingly.
Chloe’s eyes widened. “Huh? Lovers of the past life? Doesn’t that refer to us? I want to listen to it!”
Jordan touched Chloe’s head and then began playing the intro of this song.
The performance this time actually attracted the attention of the maid in Lauren’s villa. She seemed to fan the famous singer as she scurried over after hearing the familiar intro.
After playing the intro, Jordan sang while playing.
“Squirrels and walnuts playing hide-and-seek in the house.”
“The grapes hide in the oak barrels for a long time.”
Jordan began to sing the rap part of the song. Since it was Chloe’s first time hearing such a song, she was extremely excited. She merely thought that Jordan was speaking very quickly because she wasn’t sure what he was singing about.
Soon, Jordan sang to the pre-chorus part of the song.
“What love? It already exists.”
“What love? It’s understood with a glance.”
The chorus was Jordan’s favorite part, and the melody was lovely to him. Besides, it was the best demonstration of the singer’s falsetto.
However, when he was about to sing these two lines, Jordan was a little nervous.
Since he had been too vexed lately, he had been smoking very often lately, and excessive smoking might cause one to be unable to sing a falsetto.
However, Jordan learned from a famous vocal coach since he was a young child. He carefully sang those two lines which sounded the best.
“Your smile is spreading like a ripple.”
“Words can’t describe it.”
“It’s a silver sea under the stars.”
“Wow, that’s awesome, that’s awesome!” Chloe clapped her hands in excitement.
Lauren and her young maid were stunned when they heard it at the door.
Jordan continued to play the piano and sing. He was basically playing the piano blindly because he had been looking at Chloe with a fatherly gaze.
Looking at the beautiful Chloe, Jordan couldn’t help but think about what she would look like in another twenty years once she reached adulthood.
Besides, the last few lines of the song “Lovers of The Past Life’ happened to reflect Jordan’s mood at this moment.
“I will be at the white hall in the future…”
“And hand the hand I’ve been holding for a long time to another man.”
“Tears roll down drop after drop.”
“I’ll be touched.”
“Watching your happiness from afar…”
“Just like what we used to be in the last life!”
After Jordan sang the song, Chloe clapped her hands excitedly, “It’s so nice. I want to learn to play this song!”
Jordan smiled and said to Chloe, “This song is too difficult for you. We have to start from the basics, and you have to build a good foundation before you can play.”
“Daddy, teach me the basics. I want to learn the basics,” Chloe said.
Jordan was just about to teach Chloe to play the piano when he suddenly discovered Lauren and her maid were still standing at the door.
Lauren was about to go out of the living room and go to the kitchen to cook. Jordan thought she had left long ago.
The song was close to four minutes. ‘Could it be that Lauren had been standing here listening to me play and sing?’
“You haven’t gone to cook yet?” Jordan looked at Lauren.
“Oh, oh, I’ll go right away.”
Lauren panicked and hurriedly walked out of the door.
The maid also followed closely with excitement and asked, “Miss Howard, is this man Chloe’s father? Oh my God, he is so handsome and plays the piano and sings so well. No wonder you haven’t liked any other men, and you’ve been waiting for him.”
Lauren said fiercely to the maid, “Don’t babble nonsense. He has a girlfriend.”
“Huh?” Hearing this, the maid felt a little sorry for Lauren. “Miss, if it’s just a girlfriend and he isn’t married yet, snatch him from her! Don’t let other women take your man away!”
Lauren poked her maid’s forehead and said, “Stop babbling nonsense. I’ve never been in such a relationship with him. Quickly go wash the vegetables. I need to cook.”
The maid smiled and said, “You said you don’t have that kind of relationship, but when Mr. Howard comes over, you don’t cook at all. Yet, you’re cooking today. Hehe.”
Lauren glared at the maid, who didn’t dare to continue talking and instead obediently washed the vegetables.
At this moment, Jordan was teaching Chloe the piano. He discovered that Chloe had already learned the correct hand movements for playing the piano and could also play simple melodies. Hence, he reckoned that she should have learned for a while.
Jordan was grateful that Lauren had taught Chloe to play the piano because he had always intended for his daughter to play the piano.
“Chloe, did the teacher teach you the chords?” Jordan asked.
Chloe shook her head.
Jordan said, “In that case, I’ll teach you a chord, okay?”
Jordan held Chloe’s hand and said, “How about I teach you the simplest chord, the C chord?”
However, Chloe refuted, “I don’t want to learn the simplest one. I want to learn the most special one!”
Indeed, she had taken after Jordan, who liked the most special things in the world.
Jordan thought about it and wondered which chord would be the most special for Chloe.
Jordan already knew which one to teach Chloe..
