"Since Youyou is cooking sweet and sour pork for daddy, what about mommy? What is Youyou cooking for me?" Yun Shishi was overtly teasing him.
The little boy went soft and cuddly at the thought. "Youyou only cooks dishes mommy likes! Sweet and sour pork is something mommy likes as well; Youyou only has mommy in his heart!"
"All right. I'm just teasing you." His mother chuckled with amusement.
Her precious little baby was really adorable.
The boy stared at his mommy's lovely smiling face with great contentment in his heart.
Deep down, he knew very well that she was only teasing him.
That was because his mother loved his innocence the most. With that being the case, he would present that side of him unreservedly in front of her.
Even if this meant that… he had to put on a silly persona.
He would stop at nothing to make her happy.
It looked cold and deserted on a quiet street under the dim lightings.
The evening breeze, accompanied by strong gusts of wind, had turned the night chilly.
Yan Bingqing huddled to herself and hastened her footsteps.
She looked downcast as she paced along the streets. She had left the studio later than usual tonight. In the past, she would have armed herself fully with shades and headgear to avoid the paparazzi as much as possible.
Now, no paparazzo would tail her ever again even if she was to dress up for them.
Huanyu's ban was absolute.
For the first few days, her scandals were all over the Internet, and her unbearable past was bared to the public fully. Her secret affairs and sugar daddies, abortions, drug-taking – every aspect of her corrupted lifestyle was exhibited to everyone sans a reservation. Her reputation plummeted instantly.
This was how the entertainment industry worked.
When a person was popular, they were worshipped and revered as glamorous kings and queens.
When one was down and out, they were the most despised; those who stepped on them only turned from bad to worse.
The news with photos of her used to depict her most stunning and exquisite look.
Now, what the tabloids published were only photos of her looking frail, shameful, and despondent.
Soon after, Huanyu sent an injunction notice to all media organizations of any reports regarding her.
Even if it was just some minor news released online, it would be taken down shortly after posting.
She was totally erased from the massive world of the Internet and was forbidden from getting any exposure.
This was how Huanyu carried out its business – ruthless and thorough.
She got a taste of that man's brutal nature.
Yan Bingqing mocked herself for her lack of self-defense. Not having any room for struggle against his attacks, oh, how pathetic had she become.
This was not the worst, though.
Besides losing those hard-won acting contracts and commercial endorsements in and out of China and Hongkong, her faithful fans all but left her. This was the worst.
There were only reprimands for her on the Internet.
It was true that she had experienced bad times in the past.
It was just that, for so many years, she had used all ways and means to get her fame and fortune.
Finally, she had become a first-tier actress of Huanyu. She had everything from claps of appreciation, reputation and money to bouquets of flowers. Now, all were lost, and she was only left with doubts, apathy, vicious words, and finger-pointing behind her back.
The most frightening thing was that she could not even get a decent and simple job now.
All her bank accounts were frozen, and her assets of hundreds of millions had evaporated overnight.
She walked back to her house, crestfallen.
