“Don’t!” She shrieked this again, her sharp voice echoing across the warehouse.
The finger on the trigger shuddered ceaselessly despite his stiff expression.
Putting down all her pride, she pleaded, “Don’t kill me… I’m your mommy… I’m your mommy…”
The boy cut in. “Shut up! You’re no mommy of mine!”
A bitter smile instantly spread across her stricken face. “True! It’s true… You’re no biological child of mine, indeed, but do you know why? That’s because your father deceived me; he tricked me into thinking that I’m infertile! It’s because I got fooled so thoroughly that I’m filled with hatred now!”
“That’s no excuse for you to hurt my mommy!”
“Listen to me… Listen to me…” She tried her best to calm his agitation by deliberately speaking gently. “Little Yichen, don’t you remember it all? I held you in my arms when you were born and not her!”
“…” His eyes suddenly flashed in astonishment.
While secretly delighted at the sight of his wavering look, she put on a pitiful look on the surface and sobbed, “You were already a strong boy since an even earlier age. When you first learned to walk, no matter how many times or how painful it was when you fell, you’d never cry and only hold back your tears. It’s me who held you in my arms and coaxed you repeatedly. Have you forgotten about this?”
Never once had he forgotten it.
He had a conscience. Admittedly, even though this woman had not treated him as her child, she had still taken good care of him in every other aspect.
“I always opposed your daddy’s decision to send you to that boot camp because I couldn’t bear to see you suffer and get hurt! Have you forgotten? Each time I saw you return with injuries all over your body, I always cried in heartache!”
His eyes closed briefly before opening again. His struggling emotions were apparent in his eyes. “That’s only for show! Shut up and stop talking!”
“Fine! Even if it’s just for show, I…” She paused before continuing her coaxing. “Even if it’s under Mu Lianjue’s instigation that I abducted you to coerce your father into giving up the Mu Group shares, I had so many opportunities to do so, but I couldn’t bear to do it to you! Was that a show, too?! In order to protect you, I even offended—”Read the next chapter on our vipnovel.com
“Although we have no blood relations, I really have feelings for you! Don’t you feel the same? Don’t you?!”
His conflicted emotions pushed him on the verge of a breakdown.
Seizing the chance to break free from his hold, the woman turned around to flee toward the scar-faced man!
A gunshot resonated across the warehouse.
The boy actually instinctively raised his hand and fired a shot at her!
No matter how she tried to claim kinship and begged for mercy, he was subconsciously aware that if he did not get rid of her now, there would be no telling what would happen to his mother if she fell into her hands again!
He subconsciously shot her!
Alas, because he was distracted, he did not aim before shooting; the bullet, which had come flying out, pierced her abdomen, instead.
Realizing his blunder, he raised his hand again and aimed at the back of her head with gritted teeth!
“STOP!” The man bellowed as he shielded her.
The soldiers at the side rushed forward at once to surround the boy; their guns were aimed at him!
