Little Yichen suddenly reached out his arms and tightly wrapped them around her waist. With a shy look, he revealed, "Just like when I met mommy for the first time, I felt you're very warm and very familiar. Mommy, do you know? Before meeting you, I always dreamed of you."
"Dreamed of me?" Yun Shishi widened her eyes in shock, finding his words a little unbelievable.
It was probably merely child's talk, right?
When he was born, he was taken away by the Mu family; neither mother nor son had met each other once.
How did they meet in the dream?
"It's true; Little Yichen never lies."
He looked up at her, his eyes containing warmth and happiness. Her heart warmed at the sight and could not help but hug him in return.
"In my dreams, although I couldn't see mommy's face, I felt mommy's warmth. I also often dreamed of little brother. He ran in front of me, and I chased after him, but no matter what, I couldn't catch up. I always thought that it was just a dream and did not think that I really have a younger brother and a mommy."
With that, the boy gently shut his eyes. "Some people say that this is telepathy."
She did not believe it in the past, but now, she found it amazing.
"Mommy, we've missed each other for seven years. In the future, can we not separate anymore and always, always be together?" Greatly moved by the fairy tale, he could not help tightly encircling her waist.
Seven years. Seven years of separation was neither a long nor a short period to her.
To him, however, from the time he could understand things, he lacked the company of his mother.
He was always in envy of Youyou. How he wished that he could spend a lifetime with his mother and never be separated from her again.
Yun Shishi slowly hugged him in her embrace. With a choking voice, she told him. "Little Yichen, in those seven years, never once did mommy not miss you. In mommy's heart, you are as important as Youyou."
His face blushed at this, and his heart soared.
Mommy said that he was equally as important as Youyou in her heart!
"Mommy, in Yichen's heart, you are also as important as daddy."
His soft confession exuded warmth.
All of a sudden, Youyou opened his eyes. His eyes drooped as his lips pursed slightly.
Mommy said that Little Yichen was as important as him in her heart.
His heart felt bitter and, at the same time, slightly disappointed.
However, he did not feel resistant to this like before.
It was natural that she liked his brother.
Mu Yichen was his older brother, and the same blood flowed in their bodies. It was natural for his mother to love him, too.
He had an inkling, though, that in her heart, she felt more of guilt toward his older twin.
Mommy probably loved him a little more than Mu Yichen.
Even just a little bit… a little bit…
His thoughts ran wild. Feeling a little helpless, he hugged her even tighter.
Yun Shishi was startled and thought that the boy had woken up, but when she turned to take a look, his eyes were tightly shut and his face was serene. He seemed to be immersed in his dreams.
She patted Little Yichen's forehead and softly said, "Let's sleep!"
"Yes! Good night, mommy."
He covered her with a blanket but forgot to do the same for himself.
This lad, just like Youyou, knew how to care for people.
After covering him with the blanket, too, she switched off the light and hugged each of them in her arms.
