It was just setting off fireworks. He was not afraid.
Instead, he looked forward to lighting them himself.
Lighting the fireworks himself and seeing them fly up into the night sky would bring him a great sense of achievement.
Moreover, these were just fireworks!
He had even played with rocket artillery before. Hence, to him, fireworks were just interesting toys which were a cinch to play.
Youyou raised his eyebrows. He suddenly remembered how this brother of his could not be placed on par with ordinary kids.
He had seen his sick prowess before. Lighting fireworks was indeed nothing much to the other.
“Alright, then. You’re in charge of lighting the fireworks while we watch!” He felt reassured but still told his older twin to be prudent. “Please be careful, though, alright? The fireworks’ power is formidable, so don’t underestimate them.”
“I know!” Little Yichen was not grateful at all. “Why are you such a busybody?!”
Hearing that, the younger boy felt unwilling and coldly retorted, “Hmph! You’re so ungrateful! If you hurt yourself later, don’t cry about it as I won’t feel bad for you!”
With that, he ran to his mother’s side and coquettishly hugged her arm as they waited for the countdown to start.
It was the final minute.
All of a sudden, an increasing number of city residents gathered at the riverbank as they began to count down together.
“Nine, eight, seven…”
“Daddy, it’s time to light the fireworks!” yelled Little Yichen excitedly.
Mu Yazhe, who had been leaning against the railing by the riverbank, heard his son’s voice, and his lips curled into a smile as he took out the cigarette he was smoking. He then walked over and knocked his son’s head before passing the lit stick to him.
Little Yichen grabbed the cigarette and rushed him to the side. “Daddy, be careful!”
The man walked to his wife’s side, gripping his younger boy’s shoulder with one hand and circling Yun Shishi’s waist with the other.
Just as the clock struck midnight, countless fireworks rose to the sky. It was as if there was mystical chemistry between them as the fireworks boomed in the night sky!
Little Yichen covered his ears as he ran back. Behind him, showers of fireworks lit up almost half the starry sky.
More and more people gathered by the riverbank.
The boy stood on his tiptoes but could not see anything clearly.
Behind him, a pair of hands suddenly reached out.
Gong Jie picked the lad up and placed him on his shoulder as he held him stably with one arm.
“Can you see them clearly now?”
“Yes! They are clear now!”
His uncle smiled before muttering wistfully, “Little fella, you sure are heavy!”
However, brat rode the left side of his shoulders with a clear conscience while being supported by his arm. He gazed excitedly at the countless fireworks being lit by the riverbank.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
Yun Shishi was engrossed in the view when Mu Yazhe pulled her toward his chest without warning and planted a deep kiss on her forehead.
“Madam, Happy New Year!”
Her heart skipped a beat over his sudden, tender sentiment.
She raised her eyes, only to be met by his gaze which was as gentle as water. She flushed as her eyes were laced with a trace of seduction.
Just as she gave this affirmation, the man, unable to control himself, kissed her on the lips.
