Wenwen lined up with other kids and followed the teacher out. When he caught sight of Qian Shengnan, he quickly looked around but did not see his mother. “Sister Shengnan, where’s Mom?”
“Your mother can’t make it in time and asked me to pick you back.” Qian Shengnan said. After finishing the pick-up procedure with the teacher, she took Wenwen to the parked car.
When Fu Yunruo slowly opened her eyes again, she was still lying on her bed, but there was an unfamiliar stand next to the bed with an infusion bottle hanging on it. She tried to get up, only to find that her right hand couldn’t move. At the same time, a low voice came from her side, “Don’t move.”
Si Yue watched the car leave, then turned around and went to the house next door. Before she left, Qian Shengnan gave Si Yue the key to the house, so he simply opened the door and went in.
He walked around the yard and went to the flower room to have a look, but he didn’t touch any of the orchirds. For some reason, his guts told him that Fu Yunruo would hack him to death if he dared to touch even a single petal of her precious orchids.
Fu Yunruo watched the two old men bickering from the side. Curious, she nudged Chi Yucheng and asked in a low voice, “Brother Chi, what is Uncle Guo and Director Gan’s relationship?”
Chi Weicheng seemed to hold back a smile, “Sworn rivals.”
As soon as Wenwen told Si Yue that, he regretted it a bit. Still, he wasn’t lying. He had now grown up and was no longer as insecure as his past self. His mother loved him so much, and he knew she would never let him feel abandoned just because she had a new family.
Furthermore, he could see that Uncle Lin was mature, dependable, and surely knew how to pamper his mother. Although he still preferred to have his mother all for himself, he also hoped she could have someone she could depend on.
“Mom…” Seeing his mother, Wenwen regained a bit of energy, but he was still far from his usual liveliness.
Fu Yunruo took Wenwen’s hand, “What happened, Wenwen?”
The children’s cries were loud and endless, reverberating one after another. Fu Yunruo looked down at her son. Children generally had a herd mentality — seeing someone crying, others would also cry in response. But Wenwen seemed to haven’t been affected, and he kept a calm and mature-like expression on his face.
Fu Yunruo realized that Qian Shengnan’s figure was nowhere to be seen. “Shall we look for them?” She squinted her eyes and tried to find the familiar figures, but she couldn’t see Tiantian and the others with so many people around.
Fu Yunruo was about to chase after them, but a hand suddenly caught her wrist.
She turned around and looked doubtfully.
Fu Yunruo was about to ask who he was when she suddenly had a guess. “Mr. Yue?” She hesitantly called.
“You saw it through?” The voice changed back to the one she was familiar with.
Wenwen’s self-esteem was hit so much. He stopped talking and went to squat in the corner, like an eggplant wilted by frost. He, who always believed himself to be at least at par with the sixth-grade students, turned out to be unable to pass Mom’s easy test. Too embarrassing!!
Fu Yunruo smirked secretly. Little brat, you think your mother doesn’t know how to handle you? Naive!
