When was this kiss mark left on her?!
Youyou pursued relentlessly. "Mommy, what is that?"
"It's a mo— mosquito bite!"
"That doesn't look like a mosquito bite to me." Youyou crossed his arms and showed displeasure at her dubious explanation.
She turned and saw him eyeing her suspiciously before he blurted out, "This must be an indecent affair!"
Silence from her!
Can my son be less sensitive?!
It isn't good… when he's too smart to handle!
She was at a loss on how to deal with him now!
Not knowing if she should cry or laugh at his words, she could only escape to the bathroom in the guise of smoothing her tousled outfit.
Youyou casually walked around the bedroom and unexpectedly found a shoe print next to the balcony window.
Their family had a contract with a cleaning service, so an auntie would routinely come to clean up the place. The rooms were always pristine and well-maintained.
He stooped down to examine the shoe print closer. It was freshly made, suggesting that the owner of it had just left not too long ago.
He walked over and pushed open the balcony window. Going to the balcony, he switched on the garden lights and glanced across the yard.
There was a crisp and clear whistle.
The boy's face changed as he looked in its direction. In the courtyard, a broad and lean man, with his hands in his pockets, stood tall and straight under the canopy of a tree.
"Who is there?"
Mu Yazhe slowly detached himself from the shadows. His devilishly smart face had a mocking smile under the lights' illumination.
His shirt collar was slightly open, revealing a hickey on the neckline, similar to his mother's.
It was bright and glaring.
He was staring provocatively at Youyou!
This man is out to challenge me openly!
The boy made a fist angrily, his face suddenly a mask of unhappy chill.
The man, seemingly oblivious to the boy's chagrin, turned and confidently strode off through the backdoor in the courtyard!
When his mother returned to the room, she saw him standing stiffly on the balcony with a furious look.
"What happened, Youyou?" She walked over and squatted in front of him.
His little handsome face had curled into a ball of grievance by then; with moist eyes and pouting lips, he seemed to think that the world was about to come to an end.
"I'm very unhappy; I want mommy's hugs and kisses!"
He worked hard when she was not around, only to return home and discover that his dearest mommy's hugs and kisses had been snatched away by that man. He was truly feeling aggrieved now!
She quickly gathered him in her arms and consolingly asked, "Youyou, darling, what happened?"
"Mommy… has betrayed me!" he rubbed his eyes and cried out. "Mommy has another darling in her heart now; Youyou isn't first anymore!"
She was bewildered and tried to coax him. "That's not true! Youyou is always first in mommy's heart! No one can replace Youyou!"
"Boo… boo… boo! I don't believe you!" The boy sobbed heartily as he accused, "Mommy has a change of heart; mommy doesn't love Youyou anymore! Youyou's heart is very much in pain… Wu… uu… uuu… My heart is broken into pieces…"
"…" His mother was made momentarily speechless by his accusation before she helplessly refuted, "Nonsense. Youyou's heart is intact and not broken! Come and let mommy give you a kiss and a hug. Youyou, stop crying, hm?"
