"What does a child like you know of 'like'?"
"Of course, I know. Mommy, you're really lagging at times. Some elementary students are already looking for their love interests. Mommy is truly getting on in years; you're almost out of sync with our generation."
Getting on in years…
These four words penetrated her heart straightaway!
She glared at him admonishingly.
"Are you despising that mommy is getting old?"
He shrugged, sizing her up generously. Thereafter, he patted her shoulder in earnest.
"Mommy, relax! No matter how old you get, even when all your teeth are gone and your hair turns white, Youyou won't despise you!"
Touched by his words, she firmly placed two smooches on his smiling face as she cupped it with her hands. "Be good, and you're banned from despising mommy! Mommy loves Youyou the most!"
All of a sudden, he encompassed her shoulders with his arms as he crooned in his youthful, warm voice, "Do you know that Youyou is strongly possessive of mommy? Youyou hopes that no one will take mommy away, but if mommy approves of someone, whatever decision mommy makes, as long as it will make mommy happy, Youyou will wholeheartedly support it. That is enough for Youyou!"
This was despite disliking Mu Yazhe for causing his mommy to have that forlorn look yesterday.
He knew the culprit for it could only be the man!
While he did not know exactly why, he understood that one would not feel sad because of another if the former did not have feelings for the latter.
His mother was clearly in love with that man!
Since everything had progressed to this, he would not force his ideals on Yun Shishi.
Whatever her decision was, he would stand by her unconditionally!
This was simply because she was his most beloved mother.
Her gaze softened in that instant and she hugged his shoulders while gently stroking his head with a smile. "Youyou is so well-behaved! No matter what happens, Youyou should remember that mommy loves him the most!"
"Anyway, if someone bullies mommy, mommy must tell Youyou to return the favor!" He held his head aloft and pecked his mommy's cheek; his beautiful eyes contained all his adoration and love for her.
She was moved.
Sometimes, he could truly give her the wrong impression.
Although this boy was her son, his love for her was akin to a person's love for the other half.
"Aren't Youyou afraid of spoiling mommy from loving me too much?" she asked, grinning.
His rosy lips compressed in clear disapproval. "What are you saying? Isn't it the sons' rights to spoil their mothers?"
"People will surely label you as a mommy's boy when you grow up!"
"Let them be, then!" He snorted scornfully with a haughty look. "Need I, Yun Tianyou, act according to others' wishes?"
"B*llshit!" She tussled his silky hair.
He nestled within her arms in satisfaction.
Suddenly, she sternly asked, "Youyou, sometimes this comes to mommy's mind; who exactly did you inherit your genes from?"
He was quirky and witty, as well as a sweetheart, yet he was also frank – he was simply a smarty pants!
He replied with certainty, "Of course, I inherited these genes from my dearest mommy! Mommy looks so beautiful and, despite being a dummy, has Youyou! Since I'm smart, everything will be fine!"
"You said mommy is a dummy again!" Pinching his cheeks, she feigned annoyance and indignation.
