“Hahaha. Look at you reacting like that. Don’t worry, rest assured.” Lin Shaosi couldn’t help but burst into small laughter as he found it very funny teasing this girl in front of him. “I’m not interested in a little girl like you.”
After he finished saying that, he saw the little girl’s expression turned as if she was about to faint from what he just said.
Are you kidding me? Didn’t she get the joke in my words?
Then he suddenly remembered that he didn’t fully know what she had gone through in the hands of Lu Wenchen. So he concluded that there must be some shadows of fear still chasing after her. Lin Shaosi immediately regretted what he said a little bit. As an adult, he should know better and carefully watch his words.
As soon as he was about to say something, he heard Gu Yuanyuan speak, “Xiao Si, let me tell you something.”
Lin Shaosi became serious and spoke, “Say it.”
“My name is Gu Yuanyuan.” There, she finally said it.
She nervously waited for Lin Shaosi to respond at her sudden revelation.
“And then?” Lin Shaosi nonchalantly asked as he raised an eyebrow at her. “Isn’t that the name that your stepmother and your stepsister been calling all this while?”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
She couldn’t believe that Sanbao had actually forgotten the name of his own mother.
Gu Yuanyuan took a deep breath and lowered the bag of snacks in her hands. With a serious expression on her face, she solemnly and earnestly said, “Sanbao, in fact, I am actually your mother.”
Lin Shaosi: “…”
He took a step forward and stretched out his big hand towards the little girl. His palm landed of Gu Yuanyuan’s head and ruffled her hair off while saying, “Little girl, you have quite an ambition despite being at a young age. You wanted to be my mother?! Hah! Don’t make such jokes! This isn’t funny anymore. It’s very disrespectful.”
Gu Yuanyuan quickly saved her hair from Lin Shaosi’s rough ruffling. She yelled, “It doesn’t matter who’s old or who’s young! The important is, I am really your mother!!!”
Lin Shaosi was merciful enough to kindly let go of her. All right, fine. He will just play with this little girl till the end. Then, he said, “If you’re really my mother, the first thing I would do is to punish my family according to the righteousness.”
(e/n: for the last line, it’s basically justice / righteousness over family)
“…Why?” Gu Yuanyuan immediately asked despite the slight panic on her voice.
Lin Shaosi quietly sat down next to her. “Have you ever wonder why I’m calling Dr. Gu my second brother?”
Lin Shaosi changed his position and leisurely crossed his long legs. He put hands behind his head in a whimsical manner. These simple gestures of him were particularly handsome. “That’s because we’re four siblings in total. I’m the third, and Dr. Gu is the second. I have a big brother, and also a younger brother.”
“You don’t need to know more about these things. What you just need to know is that we, four brothers, are all abandoned orphans.”
“No!” Right now, Gu Yuanyuan was feeling extremely distressed. “I didn’t abandon you.”
“Well, it’s quite fast for you to get into the act right away.” Lin Shaosi rolled his eyes in mockery. “Stop your acting. Seeing that you’re still young girl, I won’t bother to hold a grudge against you, nor quarrel with you over this matter.”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
Directing his gaze to the wall in front of him, Lin Shaosi said something that made Gu Yuanyuan temporarily retreat and stand back from her previous actions. “I don’t care if she’s distressed or if she’s suffering from any kinds of problem. But after she abandoned us for whatever reason that is, I don’t really want to bother with her at all.”
“If she’s still alive, huh…” He instantly drew out his sharp blade and meaningfully looked Gu Yuanyuan in the eyes.
Gu Yuanyuan moved to the side, and she cried bitterly. A string of tears fell down from her cheeks as she realized that the path in front of her was such a long road.
Very good, it looks like he succeeded in scaring the little girl. Let’s see if she would still dare to make such jokes again in the future.
Lin Shaosi, then, retracted the knife with a feeling of satisfaction inside of him. At this moment, his manager, named Zhu Yan, called and told him to get ready and be prepared to leave at 7:30 tomorrow morning.
“All right, I got it.” Towards Zhu Yan’s repetitive reminders on the phone, Lin Shaosi only absently answered as he was busy swiping on his tablet.
Gu Yuanyuan, who was currently eating snacks, couldn’t help herself from being curious so she got up and moved around. Then she found Lin Shaosi, who was busy playing games on his tablet. Inside the game, there was a character holding a double-edge knife that was killing all over the place with the blood spilling and splattering around him.
“Do you want to play?” Lin Shaosi casually asked as he generously handed the tablet to her.
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
‘Can I even say no when you already handed over the tablet?’
