Chapter 1604: What Boyfriend?
Ye Yuwei put her phone away and reached out to pick up Xi Xi again. “What happens if you crush your brother flat?”
Ye Xicheng could not help but sigh in relief when Ye Yuwei grabbed Xi Xi away from him. “Mommy, Xi Xi gained weight again. She shouldn’t keep gaining weight like this.”
“Brother, you’re so annoying.” Xixi lifted her calf and was ready to land her brother a kick when Ye Yuwei suddenly held her calf down. They were in a tight space there. Ye Yuwei was afraid that Xi Xi might hurt her elder brother with a kick like that.
Ye Yuwei pushed Xi Xi’s calf back down. “Don’t go all touchy like that. Your brother will need his face to look for girls in the future.”
“…” Ye Xicheng was speechless.
‘Mommy, are you sure that I’m your real son?’
Xi Xi finally cheered up a little. She snickered into Ye Yuwei’s arms.
“If you ruin your brother’s face, your brother will probably have to rely on those drifting message-in-a-bottle to find a wife in the future,” Ye Yuwei continued to tease her son.
Ye Xicheng remained silent. ” … ”
He looked into his mother’s eyes and reaffirmed that she was his real mother—a stepmother could not say that.
Xi Xi giggled even harder.
Ye Yuwei would never have thought that what she used to cheer her daughter up would come true ten years later. Her future daughter-in-law would really drift over from a message-in-a-bottle.
Seeing how happy his younger sister was, Ye Xicheng stopped minding about the fact that his mother was using him at his expense. After all, it was not the first time his mother did this.
“Mommy, the old man has been gone for a long time.”
Ye Yuwei held her daughter in her arms and paused for a moment. Yes, Gu Juexi had been gone for a long time. The only thing she knew was that something might have happened to him. However, since Gu Juexi left, she had not been successful in contacting him. Now, she did not even know how Gu Juexi was doing.
Sometimes, Ye Yuwei even felt that he was a soldier who had yet to retire, and she was a military wife. That man would disappear from time to time and she could not ask him anything.
“Soon, I guess.” Ye Yuwei could only tell her son this because she did not have the answers herself.
Nalan Chunbo, who had followed Wen Shan all the way back to the Wen family house, had not thought of an answer to Wen Shan’s question.
Would he die a horrible death if he shed two disguises in a single day?
If he did not take down his disguise now, would he ever have the chance to take them off again?
It dawned on him—Of course, he would not die if he did not seek death.
Wen Shan ran all the way home. After opening the door, she went straight to her room. At that moment, Mrs. Wen was helping her kids to make some baby clothes. When she saw Wen Shan coming back, she heard the sound of the door closing before she heard Wen Shan’s voice.
Mother Wen put down the cloth in her hand and stood up. She knocked on the door. “Shan Shan, what are you doing? Open the door.”
“I’m tired. I want to sleep,” Wen Shan said in a muffled voice. She lay on the bed and hit on the doll in her hand hard.
“If; Papa Nalan. If; Papa Nalan—” Wen Shan kept yelling as she continued to hit the doll. She was unbelievably furious.
Mrs. Wen was still knocking on the door. “Your papa says he’s going to get some seafood. He’s asking where he can get them. Aren’t you bringing your boyfriend home tomorrow? Hurry up and get up—”
“What boyfriend? No more—” Wenshan replied and covered her head with the pillow directly. However, after covering her head, she felt a little worried. Surely Papa Nalan could see that she was just angry, right?
“What nonsense are you talking about, child?” Mrs. Wen shouted from outside. She only turned around to open the house door after noticing knocks were coming from the house door. “You’d better come out of your room quickly. Go get seafood with your papa later.”
Mrs. Wen had already reached the door when she was done speaking. She was a little stunned when she opened the door.
Was— Was this not the handsome best man from the other day?
