"Are you… all right?" he asked gently, his tone no longer sounding as detached, and foreign, as before.
Yichen was overwhelmed by his change in attitude. While this could not be detected in his expression, his trembling voice gave it away. "No, I'm all right!"
"Your elbow is dislocated. It should be painful, right?"
It should be very painful, in fact.
He was hanging in there for so long, so his nerves should be numb by now. On top of that, he had a dislocated elbow…
His older brother quickly assured him. "Don't worry about me; I'm used to it. This is common during my training."
A child's world was simple. Perhaps, in the past, he had feelings of animosity toward his older brother and father, dreading the thought of them barging into the little heaven he had carefully built for his mother and him and snatching her love away!
However, from this adversity, he had seen his older twin's love for him.
He was not heartless or cold-blooded!
Moreover, with the fetters attaching them, he could almost feel pain in his heart as he eyed his twin's injured arm.
He made a call to his agent. Given the go-signal to start the Ferris wheel again, Li Hanlin instructed the control station to activate the ride through his walkie-talkie.
The Ferris wheel slowly started to operate.
The two little lads sat facing each other on opposite sides. They were in an embarrassing state with their hair tousled in every direction and face decked in a cold sweat. With cheeks aflame, they gave each other a look, and as if there was a tacit empathy between them, both broke into a sweet smile.
"You are stronger than I first thought." Yun Tianyou mouthed a rare praise.
He hardly complimented anyone in the first place!
However, for this occasion, he meant it from the bottom of his heart.
If it were not for Yichen's strong physique that had carried them so far, he could not imagine what fate would have befallen him.
Blushing at the praise, the older twin opened his mouth a few times, but no words would come forth.
He was obviously shy.
The Ferris wheel slowly descended to the ground, and with the visitors streaming out of the cabins one by one, the security guards' hands were full dispersing them.
As Youyou and Yichen walked out while holding their arms, Yun Shishi broke through the human barricade and rushed to the two.
Little Yichen saw her running toward them and could feel a surge of warmth flowing into his heart.
Laying his eyes on this woman after this life-and-death struggle, he was still unable to figure out the truth. Who was this woman exactly, and was she really his biological mother? Somehow, his heart felt warm and fuzzy at the thought. It would be great if this loving and gentle lady was truly his real mother.
He did not hold much attachment to Mu Wanrou.
After all, not being her biological son, her love for him was superficial at best. Her love was just a perfunctory display of indulgence, so he could naturally not sense any familial bond with her, and, in fact, he felt removed and detached from her!
As for this lady before him, he really liked her! If she really was his real mother, he would accept her without reservations!
He must be blessed to have her as his mother, in fact!
The boy became rather nervous as he held his fist tightly!
When Youyou saw her, the composure on his face instantly melted into a look of grievance and shock. His small mouth folded into a pout with tears filling his eyes.
His crying voice astounded his older brother.
The incredulous shock and fear on his face looked even worse now than his expression in that moment of grave danger earlier.
