She undoubtedly gave birth when she was not even married yet.
What Gong Jie was more worried about was why she had a child before getting married.
Why did it happen?
An unpleasant guess floated in his mind.
What exactly did a girl at the age of eighteen go through for her to have a baby before marriage?
She was only twenty-four!
Her child was already seven!
This could not be the normal track of a woman’s life, could it?
“This matter is complicated. I will slowly explain to you everything another time, okay?” She was also unsure about how she should bring it up to him.
In reality, she was still too shy to speak her mind about the past no matter how many years had passed.
When she was eighteen, to help the Yun family when their company was on the verge of bankruptcy, she took an unconventional gambit and signed a surrogacy contract with the Mu family.
This was undeniably an act of betraying one’s body, but she did not regret it and was, in fact, glad of this unexpected decision, for it let her give birth to Youyou.
That child was likely the best gift she had received from the heavens in her entire life!
The boy was heaven-sent!
She always considered such a gift as extremely valuable.
Still, that surrogacy remained an embarrassing matter for her.
Naturally, she was not mentally prepared to let her brother know of it, so she decided to hide this from him temporarily.
Gong Jie’s face was stiff, but he let out a smile. “Tomorrow, alright?”
“Tomorrow, let’s arrange a time and location to meet. Sis, we’ve been apart for so long. I really want to know how you’ve been living all these years!”
The man looked at her expectantly. For a decade and a half, he was unable to be a part of her life.
He hoped that he could amend this regret as fast as possible.
Yun Shishi nodded.
As the car stopped at the huge entrance of Xiangti Walk, she got down from it and waved to him goodbye as she closed the door. “I’m home; please head back early!”
“Xiao Jie, where do you live right now?” she suddenly asked.
“The Gong family has estates all over the world. I came here this time only to meet one person. My work here is wrapping up, but I’ll be staying in the country for a while,” replied her brother with a smile.
“Alright. Then, I’ll see you tomorrow!” She waved at him with a smile before turning to walk through the huge doors.
The man gazed at his sister with an infatuated look until her back disappeared from his view before withdrawing his eyes reluctantly.
However, just as he retracted his gaze, he caught sight of a black wallet left on the seat.
It seemed that she had left it behind in a rush.
Curious, he picked it up. As he flipped it open, a photo entered his sight.
He could not help but take notice of this picture, and he was utterly stunned by the intimacy of Yun Shishi and a little lad in it.
In the photo, she was standing outside a school gate while holding a lad with delicate features in her arms.
The dumpling did not look older than five years old, but he was cute and delicate with tender cheeks. He was smiling sweetly in her embrace.
He immediately recognized the child in the picture.
Why was it him?
The man was floored again!
What in the world was happening here?
Why was that boy in this photo?
