Once she got back at home, to give the little guy a surprise, she moved about stealthily.
Upon entering the door, she saw her kid's school bag on the sofa. She proceeded into the kitchen but still did not see the little guy's figure. She then placed the groceries that she had just bought from the market on the countertop.
Sweeping a glance across the groceries, the combination of meat and vegetables seemed quite sumptuous.
She entered the study room next. As she opened the door, she found the little guy scrolling through Weibo.
Over the past two days, he had paid special attention to the dynamics of 'The Green Apple' official Weibo fanpage. For the filming, his mommy usually left home early and returned home late, so he was unable to spend as much time with her as before.
Only through the movie's behind-the-scenes footage, which was featured on Weibo, could he get updates of his mommy's daily activities in the production team.
Hearing the door opening, he lifted his head in surprise. When he saw that it was his mother, astonishment appeared on his face. "Mommy, you're back!"
With that, he flew all the way into her warm embrace.
"Mommy, Youyou misses you a lot!"
"My silly baby, it's only been a day since we've last seen each other!" Feeling a mixture of amusement and helplessness, she tapped his pretty nose.
The little boy raised his little face and seriously said, "Is it?! Why do I feel that I haven't seen mommy for a year?"
"What an exaggeration."
"This is called 'a day drags past like a year', stupid mommy!" He smiled softly as he placed a kiss on her cheek. "Why is mommy back so early today?"
"Mommy misses my Youyou, too!"
She pinched his chubby cheeks.
What a nice feeling.
She could not help pinching it a few more times.
The little guy's face was devoid of any grievance as he smiled up at her like cherub only meant for her.
The little guy seemed to be a little meatier now. At least, his face, which was chubby and cute, was no longer as thin as before.
"Gee, how is my baby so cute?!" She rubbed her face against his.
The little guy's glistering eyes curved; he enjoyed this intimacy very much.
If possible, he would let mommy pinch his face for a thousand years, ten thousand years, and he would also not feel tired.
"Mommy is so pretty, that's why. Thanks to mommy's beautiful genes, Youyou is also very cute!"
This compliment made her heart soar. She then proceeded to rub his silky hair happily. "My Youyou's mouth is so sweet! Mommy loves you so much!"
"He he! o(≧o≦)o" He solemnly emphasized, "Youyou speaks no lie – no lie!"
"All right! Good."
"Mommy, shall go watch TV first? After I'm done making dinner, I'll massage mommy's shoulders!"
The little boy, thus, plunged into the kitchen.
She sat on the sofa and watched TV while she waited. Coincidentally, she switched onto an entertainment channel, which was airing the recently ended press conference of 'The Green Apple'.
When it was Yan Bingqing's turn to be interviewed, a reporter raised a sharp and shrill question. "Yan Bingqing, there are a lot of fans on Weibo comparing you and Yun Shishi; what can you say about this?"
In the face of a camera, the actress's face exuded undisguised arrogance and contempt as she shot back. "You're asking me for my opinion to that? How about I ask you, instead? Where is the comparison in this question?"
The reporter said, "I think this comparison is quite impolite."
The actress laughed coldly. "This is merely a way for some people to generate hype; I don't see a need to respond."
