"I say I don't want! I don't want next time but only today. I want to play with daddy only today!" Unable to hold in his frustration and grievances, he lashed out bitterly to his father. He seldom cried, but as these words tumbled out of his mouth, tears rimmed his eyes uncontrollably.
What do you mean by next time? Will there really be a next time?
… Why does he need to do that; isn't today my birthday?
He was so looking forward to having this precious good time with his daddy…
"Yichen, don't be obstinate!"
"I want to stay behind and play; I don't want to follow her to the hospital! I don't want!" He pouted in anger.
His stubbornness angered his father. "Then, go play by yourself!" Throwing this icy statement at his son, he got into the ambulance and closed its rear door with a bang !
Anyway, the person in charge of Fairy Tale Valley was already notified to look after his son. Thus, even though he was away, an adult would accompany his child. Since the boy wanted so much to stay behind, then he would let him play to his heart's content!
The ambulance roared away, leaving Little Yichen struck in disbelief on the spot. For a time, he could not recover from his shock.
Has daddy… just deserted me?
Does he not want me anymore?
He did realize that he had gone slightly overboard earlier, though.
Did daddy abandon me as punishment?
What wrong have I committed to deserve this kind of punishment?!
It was obvious that Song Enxi had manipulated the adults to snatch his daddy from him.
He knew he should have obediently gotten into the ambulance and should not have been adamant on staying, but he was blinded by rage earlier and did not want to compromise.
It was not about his birthday; it was because he could not accept the thought that his expectations could be smashed so easily.
He did not do anything wrong and held no guilty conscience, but what could he do when his daddy did not believe him?
He tried to bury his face by hanging his head low and close to his chest. His mouth twitched uncontrollably as he tried to hold back his tears. He really wanted to let go of his grievances, but his pride prevented him from doing so. He had never cried before!
He roughly wiped the wetness in his eyes with the back of his hand and angrily lifted his head high. His usual aloofness and apathy had returned fully.
Everyone can get lost!
All of them can get lost! I'll just have fun by myself!
Li Hanlin walked up to the boy's side, marveling at the similarity between this boy and his little boss.
It was rare to find very identical looks even in a pair of twins.
"Young Master Mu…" The agent plastered a warm smile to cheer the boy up while he walked abreast with him.
The child shot him an aloof look. "Don't touch me."
In the absence of his father, he regained his usual self: cold, haughty, and quiet.
He picked up his bag on the floor and walked to his next destination. Before leaving, he warned the adults. "I'm going to play by myself; don't follow me."
Why would the agent listen to him, though? The boy's father had specifically requested him to watch over his baby before he left.
Thus, Nanny Li made a call. "Get a few men to follow him in secret, and don't let him find out!"
With that, a team of bodyguards set off to follow the boy cautiously.
Surely, the boy should have discovered their traces with his experience and boot camp training.
Alas, he was not in the mood to make a fuss.
The only thought in his mind was that, since he was already here, he might as well have fun.
