Gong Jie stole a look at his nephew and realized that the latter was taking him as the fortune god with the adoring look he was giving him.
The man could not help feeling hurt at the materialistic look of his nephew.
Clenching his chest, he uttered sadly, “I got presents for you two, yet I was criticized as petty in return. Youyou, you’d better comfort my hurting feelings now…”
The boy immediately walked up to his uncle and climbed onto his lap. Sitting on his thighs, the boy’s tender hand caressed his uncle’s chest as he cajoled lovingly, “Be good, uncle; don’t be upset anymore! Don’t bother with that kiddo! He is young and doesn’t know you at all. I’m different, though. I know you are rich and generous, so I won’t call you a petty folk!”
Unfortunately, his uncle was not comforted by his gentle consolation. On the contrary, he felt more insulted after hearing that.
His two nephews were not adorable at all!
He replied stiffly, “I didn’t prepare a present for you.”
“Why? Why not?”
This time around, the little lad looked pretty upset as he bit his soft, lower lips and pointed accusingly at his older sibling. “You gave him an expensive yacht, so how could you claim that you didn’t prepare anything for me?!”
Gritting his teeth, his uncle grabbed the boy’s shapely chin with his fingers and muttered, “You rascal, the assets under your name are enough to rival mine! Are you still trying to suck me dry?”
The boy’s face froze for a second before his face spread into a sly smile. “I can do that because you’re my uncle, right? If not, why don’t you address me as grandpa, and I’ll give you a yacht, instead?”
Gong Jie: “…”
The boy continued. “You should know that I don’t show respect to everyone who comes running to me—not even if they are my blood relatives—so don’t take your advantage for granted, alright?! You’d better get my present ready, or else… he he he, don’t forget; this is my territory and I can stack the deck against you!”
Take your advantage for granted?!
The man was truly infuriated by then. “How about this: I’ll address you as my grandpa in exchange for the castle that you’re auctioning under your name?”
“Sure! Do it if you dare.”
The man immediately cried, “Grandpa!”
The boy was struck speechless and spat angrily, “How shameless can you be?!”
His uncle stuck out his tongue mischievously at the fuming boy before he caressed the latter’s head indulgently. “Alright, I won’t tease you anymore. I’ve prepared a present for you, too.”
“And what present is that?”
The man drew close to the boy’s ear and whispered, “You’re coveting the Victoria Island I got for myself last year, right? I’ll give it to you as a present.”
The boy’s pupils constricted instantly as he excitedly exclaimed, “Really?!”
His uncle hummed his affirmation and added, “Are you very touched now?”
“Uncle, you’re so generous! I love you so much!” He clung onto the man’s shoulders as he let loose a yelp of hooray smilingly.
The adult asked petulantly, “Shouldn’t you express your gratitude to me now?”
His nephew grabbed his chin without hesitation. Drawing his tender face close to his handsome profile, the lad proceeded to plant a big, wet kiss on his thin lips. “Thank you!”
This was the usual way he expressed his love to his mother, but his uncle, who was unused to it, was taken aback by his intimate action. Looking at the boy in surprise, the man touched his lips with his finger lightly.
“Youyou, you’ve taken this chance to molest me…” sobbed the adult.
The boy rolled his eyes at his uncle. “Didn’t you want me to thank you?”
