Gong Jie was unaware of his thoughts, though, for he provoked him further by saying, “He he! In fact, I’m very curious, too. If your mother finds out that you’re involved in weaponry, smuggling, crude oil, and hacking instead of attending school properly like the young boy you should, what will she think? I’m sure she’ll teach you a good lesson!”
“Uncle!” Youyou spat through gritted teeth from his end.
Only then was his uncle satisfied. “Mm! My good, little nephew!”
“I’m also rather curious!” His eyes creased into a smile. “Guess what mommy will think if she finds out that her precious, young son has been led astray by his uncle?”
The man’s face instantly darkened.
Mimicking his earlier threatening tone, the boy casually enunciated, “Uncle, mommy is bound to be absolutely livid if she learns that you’ve brought me to meddle in crude oil, smuggling, and weaponry! Just the thought of mommy getting angry is scary enough!”
The man softened his attitude right away, losing all of his earlier authoritative tone. “Youyou, let’s calmly talk things over; there’s no need for us to threaten each other!”
The boy was satisfied, too.
This round was a draw!
No one got the short end of the stick!
In terms of eloquence, he had never lost to anyone before.
Holding the phone in his hand, his uncle had countless questions to ask him.
He had been separated from his sister for a decade and a half. Although it was not a very long period, it still occupied three-quarters of his life.
He had countless things to ask and say about that long period of separation, but they were all stuck in his throat. For a moment, he was at a loss on what to ask!
It might also be that he had too much he wanted to ask that he had no idea where to begin.
He wanted to know how her life had been in these past fifteen years.
Did she suffer from any grievances?
Did she get bullied?
After their separation fifteen years ago, where had she been?
Was she adopted by someone?
What exactly happened to her when she was eighteen to have given birth then?
He felt a pang of pain in his heart at the thought of this.
Eighteen was such a young age. In this country, the girls that age should still be studying!
He did some mental calculations; at that time, she was likely a college student!
What happened to her such that she had to give birth while still in school?
Could it be… that she got bullied by other boys?
That was the only scenario he could come up with.
At eighteen, the young and naïve girls were still virgins. They were easily fooled by boys into giving their hearts, only to be toyed with by them.
Perhaps… Was she actually violated?
A ball of anger welled up in his chest at this suspicion!
If he so much as learned what had happened seven years ago, along with her abuser’s identity, he would definitely do whatever it took to make mincemeat out of the culprit and dump him into the sea to feed the fish!
In the dining room, Mu Yazhe sneezed gracefully in puzzlement.
Who was talking behind his back?
Youyou sensed his uncle’s sudden darkening of aura from his end but did not know what he was thinking so he faintly asked, “Master Gong, what’s on your mind?”
“What did you call me?” The man arched a brow in displeasure as he reminded the boy.
Only then did the boy come to his senses, muttering reluctantly, “I’m unused to the sudden change of the form of address, uncle!”
“Good! Just call me ‘uncle’ in the future!”
