Chapter 1913: Daddy is such a miser!

After Little Yichen announced this to his family, he fished out four movie tickets from his wallet as if performing a magic trick.
His mother took a closer look at the tickets and was stunned on the spot when she realized that they were for her maiden show, ‘The Green Apple’.
“Son, really, how many tickets did you buy?”
“There are too many to count. Mommy, haven’t I told you before? Everyone will have a chance to catch this show on my account!” The boy threw a sidelong glance at his mother.
“How generous of you!” His mother was taken aback by his extravagance.
The family agreed to catch this show together.
While they were on their way to the theater, Yun Shishi started to feel cold. She did not bring an extra coat to keep warm when she left the house earlier, so as night fell, the drastically dropping temperature sent her teeth chattering.
Her husband saw her struggle even though she did not say a word and drove them to a fashion boutique for some warm outerwear.
As the family of four stepped into the store, everyone gazed at them in surprise.
OMG! The man is so suave and handsome, while the lady is gorgeous beyond words. Besides them, the twins came across as two bright and adorable, mixed-blood. This sight made the onlookers brim with envy.
Mu Yazhe ignored the stunned and envious looks around them as he busied himself with the task at hand: Getting his wife to pick and try on a coat. The whole affair was executed effortlessly under his supervision. He made the payment a few minutes later and they were out of the shop with her in a brand-new coat. The man was very satisfied with his purchase as they walked out while holding hands.
The woman was rendered speechless.
Standing at one side, Yichen gave his evaluation. “Daddy has good taste, indeed! This coat looks good on mommy. She looks snug and pretty in it!”
His father merely retorted dryly, “Stop currying favor.”
His father knew him well.
How did daddy know what I was trying to do?
Indeed, his allowance had nearly been depleted by his bulk purchase of movie tickets for the rest to enjoy. With his dwindling pocket money, he reckoned that he could get his father to give him more through flattery.
“Have you used up all your allowance?” His younger brother sniggered at him.
Youyou could tell that his twin wanted to get their mother a coat when he saw her trembling in the cold wind.
The older boy had the intention to pay for the coat, which his father had picked; alas, his wallet had nothing more than a few small notes in it. Thus, he could only stare at the coat with a whooping five-digit price tag in misery.
He wanted so much to show his gallantry to his mother.
Instead, it was his father who got to show off.
“Almost all the pocket money daddy gave has already been spent.”
In fact, the boy would receive a few hundreds of thousands of yuan from his father as pocket money every month since he was six. Most of it was set aside for investment, while the rest was recently spent on movie tickets to support his mother’s acting career.
In fact, he had run out of ideas on how to survive this month with the meager sum left in his wallet.
His father was unmoved. “I have already passed you the pocket money for
this month. You’ll have to wait for next month to get another.”
The boy looked crestfallen after that.
Concerned, his mother asked, “Son, have you truly spent all your allowance?”
“Yes…” The boy nodded his head eagerly as he looked at her with anticipation.
Just as he expected, she reached out for her wallet and told him, “Don’t worry. Mommy will pass you some pocket money, instead. Hmph. Your father is such a miser!”
“That’s right! Mommy is the best!” exclaimed the lad smilingly as he shot his father a condescending look as saying to the man, You’re so stingy!
