Chapter 1387 A True Confession!
‘Baby, you’re back!’
He absolutely loved his mother’s long and thick raven tresses. Whenever she was seriously ill, he would stay by her side and tenderly attend to her, carefully keeping her hair neat and clean.
Every time the raven mane slipped through his fingers, he would look at his mother’s pale countenance through the mirror. Sorrow would flood his heart uncontrollably.
Everything, the beautiful memories he used to enjoy, was torn apart all of a sudden!
It was because this man destroyed everything single-handedly!
He was left all alone by himself.
“D*mn you!” Mu Yazhe spouted in an anguish-filled voice. Every word he forced out of his lips carried endless cries of hatred!
“Mu Lianjue, you deserve to die!”
Mu Linfeng could not bear to watch further and turned his body around.
As Youyou lay buried in Vermilion Bird’s arms, his heart swelled with great pain as he peeked at his father’s rigid back.
His heart ached for his father…
He did not know what kind of childhood his father had had; at the very least, he knew that it was not a happy one.
It was unlike his as, despite having a weak constitution which brought him much shame, he still had a mother close by to protect and care for him.
It was different for his father.
The man had lost his parents at an early age. He had to tread carefully on every treachery and betrayal in the massive Mu household to be where he was now.
Finally, Mu Lianjue breathed his last. His eyes flipped up as his larynx broke under his nephew’s mounting pressure.
He was dead.
With this, the feud within the family, which had crossed two generations, drew to a close.
The man stood up, cutting a lonesome figure in the howling wind.
At that moment, the wind picked up in velocity and whipped around them ferociously.
“Daddy,” cried out Youyou softly, his eyes on his father.
The man turned around, his hair being tousled by the wind. As he looked at his son, his bloodshot eyes slowly shed off the bloody gleam and regained their former clarity.
“Daddy, hug, hug!”
The boy smiled tenderly and opened his arms to his father.
The latter walked over and took him in his arms.
His son encircled his arms gently around his father’s shoulders. Lifting his eyes with a heartwarming smile, he said, “Daddy, from now on, you have me! You’re not alone anymore.”
His father was pleasantly taken aback. With eyes shining warmly, he hugged his son tighter and replied, “Besides you, I have others, too.”
“En. You have mommy!”
Pinching his nose bridge, the man added, “Little Yichen, too.”
The child shared smilingly, “Brother asked me once if it’s okay for the four of us to live together forever.”
He then continued amid his father’s stunned look. “I wasn’t sure then as one is so stupid while another is out to fight me over mommy, but I’ve made up my mind now.”
Pausing, he adopted a serious look as he told his father, “Daddy, let’s be together forever—you, me, mommy, and brother! The four of us will always be with one another and never be apart, alright?”
His countenance was one of utmost solemnity as he posed that question.
Overcome with shock and happiness, his father could not respond for a while!
This was the first time his boy had made a true confession to him!
Before, this little fellow would appear aloof and detached when he was with him. He was hardly affectionate, and even if he wanted his father’s attention, he would never admit to it. Such was his petulant nature.
Today, though, he tenderly admitted to him that he wanted their family to stay together forever!
