"Nonsense. Youyou's heart is intact and not broken! Come and let mommy give you a kiss and a hug. Youyou, stop crying, hm?"
With that, she cupped his face and gave a big peck on his cheek.
With tears rolling down his face, he turned the other cheek and asked for the same. "Here, too…"
His mother quickly delivered a kiss on the other side.
"Kiss my lips, too!"
He forlornly pointed to his small, pinkish mouth.
Sheepish, she lightly landed a kiss on his small lips.
The boy was finally consoled and stopped his tears.
Just like the unpredictable weather in June, the boy's gloomy wet face was now all sunshine after her kisses.
Inwardly, he was cursing his father. Mu Yazhe, how dare you snatch my mommy away from me; you just watch!
The little lad went to the study room and locked himself in. Sitting at his study table, he powered on his computer and then activated the control switches for making the bookshelves split apart at the center to reveal a gigantic flat screen monitor.
Opening the system interface, the boy speedily typed on the keyboard to bring up the window featuring the city's traffic control system.
His agent had informed him earlier that Disheng Financial Group would be having an important acquisition tomorrow in London. He reckoned that the man was on his way now to his private jet for an overnight flight!
Lifting his head, his lips curled into a devilish smile as his fingers furiously flew across the keyboard to enter a string of commands. Focusing on the screen as he typed, he successfully hacked into the city's navigation system very quickly.
In ten seconds' time, much to his satisfaction, he had the full view and control of this city's crisscrossing traffic coordinates. He quickly swept his eyes across the screen as his brain visualized the ten navigational routes from the Mu residence to the airport. With a sneer, he entered another row of commands to have the traffic lights in those ten routes flash red.
Mu Yazhe, are you out to challenge me?
Baa baa baa—
Du du du—
Car horns and sirens blared one after another and irritatingly pierced the eardrums of those currently on the Huai'an Highway.
Car taillights could be seen stretching up to dozens of kilometers on this highway. The sight was enough to numb anyone's scalp.
"Director Mu, we seem to be caught in a traffic jam!"
The chauffeur anxiously turned to inform his master of this.
Mu Yazhe was checking emails on his tablet when he received this news.
He raised his head and looked out. Cars had gathered close to theirs by then; this made it difficult for the driver to maneuver the vehicle away from this road.
"What's the matter?"
"There's a traffic jam…"
"Didn't I tell you to avoid the congested route?"
"Director Mu, this has never happened on this route before. This is also the fastest way to the airport." Feeling wronged, the driver defended himself. "The traffic lights in front of us seem to be faulty."
"Faulty traffic lights?"
"Eh! It seems that all lights at the outer loop are faulty; that's why we are experiencing a traffic jam here."
"D*mn!" The man looked at his watch. There was not much time left to the last flight out of the city tonight. If he missed this flight, he would need to submit a new application for his private plane to fly out!
If so, he would likely miss the acquisition deal tomorrow.
It was not the peak hours now; moreover, the traffic system in the capital had always been stable. Why did the traffic lights suddenly malfunction for no reason?
The traffic enforcers, who had arrived at the scene at this point, got down to the business of easing the jam.
The traffic support team only managed to patch the problem in the system after 20 minutes. It took another half an hour after that for the traffic situation to return to normal.
