Xixi was very happy and kept following her brother around as he packed his bag. However, she became so exhausted from following him that she fell asleep on the carpet.
After Ye Yuwei finished packing her bags, she stepped out of her bedroom and saw Ye Xicheng putting a blanket over his sleeping sister.
She looked at the time. There was still an hour before Nalan Chunbo would arrive to take them to the airport. She wanted to have a good chat with her son.
Ye Yuwei sat down on the sofa and gestured for her son to come over.
“You are so obedient that mommy feels like I owe you so much,” Ye Yuwei murmured as she hugged her son and kissed him on his forehead.
Ye Xicheng leaned against his mother and hugged her back tightly. He then kissed her cheek, but there was a sly look in his eyes.
The person defying him and his sister was that man named Gu Juexi and not his mother.
“For the past few years, you have been following me as I travel around the world for work, and you have also been helping me look after your younger sister. However, mommy has not been able to give you much,” Ye Yuwei said regretfully as she thought about the time and effort she had put into her job for the past few years. Aside from giving them material things, she had not been able to spend much time with her children.
( B oxnovel.c om ) “I know mommy is doing all this for us,” Ye Xicheng said in a serious tone. He wanted to ask about that Gu Juexi person but he was afraid that his mother would get upset.
After all, his mother had said that the man named Gu Juexi was dead. If he asked her about it now, she would definitely get upset.
Well, he could only wait until he got to B City before finding the answer out himself.
Ye Yuwei looked down at her son who was struggling to maintain a straight face and the scene piqued her curiosity. She stared at him and asked, “What is it, darling? Do you have something that you want to tell mommy?”
“No!” Ye Xicheng quickly replied and buried his head into his mother’s arms.
Ye Yuwei gently patted her son’s small frame and glanced at her daughter who was still in a daze as she woke up. The little girl cried out for her brother but when she turned around and saw her mother sitting on the sofa, she hurriedly crawled over to her. The little girl then squeezed her way in between her mother and brother, quickly pushing her brother aside.
Ye Yuwei looked at her daughter as if to say, ‘that was really overbearing of you. Your brother loves you so much.’
Ye Xicheng just sighed and patted his sister’s back softly. He had no intention of competing with his younger sister.
Xixi would be afraid every time she did not see her mother or brother when she woke up because of her physical inconvenience. It would usually take a long time to comfort her and assure her that everything was alright.
The doctor said that this was because she was unable to run or jump, and would fall asleep randomly. This made her very insecure. The doctor recommended that it would be best for Xixi to always have a relative by her side.
This was why Ye Xicheng had never once competed with his sister for their mother’s affection. He even blamed his sister’s condition on Gu Juexi.
If not for Gu Juexi, his mother would not have gone through so much when she was pregnant with him and his sister. If they had not been born prematurely, his younger sister would not have this condition.
It was all because of that man, Gu Juexi.
In the past, he did not know who Gu Juexi was so although he did not believe his mother’s words, he had no specific person to target.
As soon as he saw Gu Juexi on television the other day, he instantly knew who that man was.
Ye Yuwei hugged her daughter, consoling her. When Nalan Chunbo arrived to pick them up, Ye Xicheng followed him to the car to help him load their luggage so his mother could carry Xixi downstairs.
( B oxnovel.c om ) Before he went downstairs, Ye Xicheng sent another email to Gu Juexi before putting his phone aside and following his mother to the airport.
