For example, Youyou's eyes were bigger and narrower than his twin brother's. He would indubitably be a classic pretty boy when he grew up.
With a sharp turn of his head to glare at him, the boy raised his hand and smacked the old man's hand away!
It was a forceful smack.
Mu Sheng's hand stung from the pain.
"Don't touch me!" spat the boy angrily; his tone had neither the childishness nor timidity of a seven-year-old kid.
Other kids his age would be shivering in fear at such a huge commotion!
This child was bold in comparison; his voice revealed the same unruliness as his father when he was younger!
Mu Wanrou shot him a look. "He's your great grandfather; you're not to be rude to him!"
The boy did not spare her a glance, however.
It infuriated her incessantly. She hated this child's arrogance!
Her grandpa laughed, instead. "He he! This child is as gutsy as his father! Not bad!"
She could not help commenting, "Grandpa, don't spoil him. The child is too arrogant and needs to be taught a good lesson when he returns. If not, others will think that the Mu family doesn't teach him properly; hence, his lack of upbringing!"
He sent her a reproachful look to voice his disagreement. "Wanrou, don't say it this way! The child looks quite good to me! Unlike other children who cower and are timid, he's fearless and gutsy!"
She opened her mouth in silent protest.
"What's your name?" Naturally, he was overjoyed to meet his grandson. He could not help smiling and teasing him just as how he teased Little Yichen.
The boy, however, ignored him.
The man broke out in laughter. "This child has some guts!"
"Put me down!" demanded the boy.
Before she could stop the child, her grandpa ordered, "Let him down! Don't hurt the child."
The soldier then released him.
Struggling out of the soldier's hold, he raced frantically toward his mother.
Yun Shishi sighed in relief as her son desperately jumped into her embrace and shuddered.
"Mommy… Mommy, mommy…"
The earlier scene frightened him so much, and for a moment, he thought he would lose her.
Despite her being safe and sound, he hugged her tightly in trepidation.
She regained a little consciousness at his helpless and heartbroken cries and instinctively hugged him tighter into her embrace.
Witnessing this scene, the old man walked unhappily toward her with a frown on his face.
Mu Wanrou immediately stopped him. "Grandpa, don't go over; I'm afraid that she'll hurt you!"
"Grandpa, I'll snatch the child back!"
With that, she marched toward the other woman.
"Yun Shishi, this is your last warning: Don't make things difficult for both of us! Hand over the child to us right now, and I'll forget about your violation of the contract! Don't blame me for being merciless if you don't listen!"
Unable to make a sound due to the pain in her throat, Yun Shishi just hugged her son a little tighter.
She struggled to lift her eyelids, and when she spotted the old man standing at the doorway, her heart could not help skipping a beat.
She could recognize him as she had seen a picture of him in a financial magazine before.
