Chapter 1274: The Highest Praise and Honor
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
His father rarely complimented him. No matter how he performed, it was rare for him to gain his recognition and praise!
Those few words were indubitably his highest praise and honor to him!
Little Yichen was deeply heartened by his words.
“What do you think?!”
Although his father’s eyes flashed teasingly, there was a rare appreciation and recognition in them!
The boy could not help blushing slightly!
To him, his father’s appreciation was the highest praise and honor he could receive. He felt a small sense of accomplishment because of the latter’s recognition!
“Daddy, it’s my duty, as well as my responsibility, to protect mommy, isn’t it?” He licked his dry lips and smiled slightly as he said so.
The man could not help reaching out to rub his hair lovingly.
The boy shut his eyes in contentment; the warmth from the man’s palm was so real that he was greedy for it.
“Daddy, mommy, when are we fetching little brother?”
Yun Shishi lightly kneaded his little hand and gently coaxed, “Once you’ve recovered, we’ll fetch him home, all right?”
He piped up. “I’m all healed already. I’m fine; I can get out of this bed and move around!”
The woman chuckled in amusement as she grazed his high nose bridge. “Silly boy, you’ve sustained such serious injuries; rest in bed and recuperate for a few more days, all right? Mommy will accompany you.”
He was overjoyed to hear that. His face flushed a little from feeling shy about it!
What a dream-like surprise, too!
Growing up, he lacked nothing at all.
He lived in luxury and splendor; basically, no matter what he wanted, he could have it by opening his mouth.
As the future successor of the Mu family, not only was he born with a silver spoon and showered with love, everyone in his family revolved around him as well. Naturally, he lacked nothing at all!
However, if he had to say something, then the one thing he lacked was companionship!
Sometimes, he would really be envious that other children his age could have so many companions.
The boy must admit that he felt jealous whenever he saw his peers running toward the arms of their parents, who were waiting at the school gate, during his first kindergarten.
Each time, he would wonder when he could see his parents standing together at the school gate, patiently waiting for him!
However, what awaited him each time was only a cold sedan.
What he wanted, the companionship of parents, were often very simple and at the fingertips of ordinary children.
Alas, due to his status, this request was extravagant and out of reach.
In fact, every time he received those expensive gifts, he wanted to throw them on the ground and tell his daddy, ‘I don’t want these! All I want is for you to accompany me, even if it’s just for a while every day!’
His greatest wish was for his father to spend a bit more time with him each day—just a bit more.
Although this thought was a little greedy itself, it was what he wanted the most.
It was different now, though.
He had mommy.
She would accompany him by his sickbed and patiently care for him while peeling and cutting fruit to feed into his mouth.
She would also buy his favorite dessert and feed him one mouthful at a time.
