He really wanted to give him a happy and memorable birthday. He rejected many business deals and concluded his meetings early just to return home and give his son a surprise.
Nobody expected for this birthday celebration to end in a fiasco, though!
The man led the way out of the doctor's office in big strides. Song Enya, who was following behind, wanted to say something to him but stopped herself each time!
This man's great image in her heart was irreplaceable.
She had loved sticking close to him since young.
If they were to follow the traditions, as her mother, Jiang Qimeng, was Jiang Yishan's niece, she would need to address him as uncle.
She found that term too formal and distant, however. She preferred calling him Brother Mu, which sounded more intimate to her ears.
Her secret admiration for him grew with age, and gradually, it developed into a crush and adoration.
Although they were connected by blood, this was not a restriction in the upper class where it was the norm for cousins to marry each other just to keep their wealth into the family.
Her dream, from the very start, was to become his bride.
This was her ultimate wish. Alas, him having a fiancée gave her the biggest heartache.
He was indubitably a perfect man to her. Haughty and snobbish, she deemed him as the only one worthy of her.
The Song family was the most influential among the elites in the capital. With their far-reaching power and status, only Brother Mu was compatible to her.
That Mu Wanrou was just a wild seedling from nowhere; how was she qualified to be his fiancée?
She really looked down on that infertile woman.
Seizing the right moment, she caught up to him and carefully opened her mouth.
"Brother Mu, there are some things which I'm not sure if I should tell you."
The man was feeling troubled now, so he merely frowned at her words. He went to the smoking area, lighted a stick he got from his cigarette box, and took a drag on it.
The woman followed him to the area. Seeing his brows furrow coldly and sternly, she recalled. "Brother Mu, are you worried of Little Yichen?"
He only looked at her wordlessly.
As if speaking to herself, she continued, "While Little Yichen bullying Enxi is wrong, Brother Mu ditching him alone at the theme park is still harsh. Yes. He underwent a special military training before, but Brother Mu, could you really bear to leave him there alone by himself?"
Could he really bear to leave him there by himself?
Of course, not!
He regretted it the moment he left his son behind.
However, as his father, his authority should not be defied.
Little Yichen, especially in front of outsiders, had never gone against his words. He was ever strict to his son.
Under that circumstance, no matter how wronged the boy felt, he should learn to curb his unhappiness instead of adding fuel to fire with his defiant words!
It was befitting for an upper-class gentleman, even a six-year-old, to give in to a five-year-old girl. This was an unbending rule in the Mu household.
Yes, this rule could not be disobeyed.
Thus, all he wanted was to teach his son a lesson!
Besides, what was there to gain arguing with an insensible girl?
This was unacceptable!
Right now, however, the man chose to keep quiet.
How he disciplined his kid was his business. He did not like any outsider's interference.
Hence, his eyes held a trace of disdain at her words.
