“Okay, Grandma will stop crying. Grandma will not cry anymore,” Wen Jie said as she tried her best to hold back her tears. When Ye Yuwei quietly retreated, Wen Jie pulled the two young children into a tight hug.
Ye Xicheng stretched his hand and gently patted his grandmother on her back. He continued comforting his grandmother with his soft and reassuring voice. He was so obedient and filial that he did not seem like a child at all.
Although Xixi did not understand what was going on, she followed her brother and mimicked whatever actions her brother was doing.
It would not go wrong if she just followed what her brother did.
“Do you realize how much pain you have caused others now?” Gu Juexi’s cold voice suddenly sounded.
Ye Yuwei was speechless.
Ye Yuwei did not turn back to look at him, but the smile on her face disappeared.
When Wen Jie heard her son’s voice, she looked up at Gu Juexi disapprovingly and warned him, “Juexi, stop.”
Gu Juexi smirked. “I was just reminding her of how heartless she had been when she abandoned us for the past six years. Does she not have a conscience?”
Ye Yuwei looked up at Gu Juexi. Her hands were clenched into a fist. “That cannot be compared to how CEO Gu took advantage of and made use of people. If you want to talk about conscience, in comparison to you, my conscience is abundant.”
Wen Jie was at a loss for words when she saw the two people bickering.
Gu Juexi was surprised at Ye Yuwei’s retaliation and he knitted his brows together. “Ye Yuwei, do you really want to—”
“Gu Juexi, shut your mouth now!” Wen Jie yelled as she hugged the two children in her arms. As soon as she spoke, she started coughing vigorously.
“Mom!” Ye Yuwei hurriedly patted Wen Jie’s back.
“Grandma!” Ye Xicheng quickly tiptoed and poured a glass of water before carefully placing it at Wen Jie’s lips.
“Why can’t you be more like your son?” Wen Jie reprimanded Gu Juexi as she looked at her grandson, before looking up at her son again.
Initially, Gu Juexi wanted to rush over to Wen Jie but he quickly realized that there was no room for him there. Therefore, he could only stand there as his mother reprimanded him.
That little meatball standing there, was his son.
Gu Juexi’s gaze fell on the little puffball who was staring right back at him. Her big round eyes were sparkling with excitement.
Gu Juexi had a flashback. This look—
[You, you…Can you please sign this for me?]
Gu Juexi clenched his fists tightly together. At that time during his speech at the university, the girl who had asked for his signature had this exact pair of big round eyes that sparkled.
However, Ye Yuwei’s sparkling eyes had already disappeared.
The little meatball looked at the expression on Gu Juexi’s face and snorted. It was all gone now.
Earlier today, he had just told the old meatball that his sister was his uncle’s biological daughter.
Gu Juexi felt that the little meatball was staring at him, and he turned around and flashed him a huge smile.
The little meatball was slightly annoyed and stomped his feet a little. He had been too careless.
Gu Juexi squatted down in front of the children, but Xixi suddenly fell down. Gu Juexi quickly reached out and held her in his arms. He looked at the scars on her legs and he started frowning.
Xixi patted her small little chest with a sigh of relief. She threw a glance at her mother. She had almost fallen down again.
“Thank you, handsome elder brother,” Xixi said politely.
‘Handsome elder brother?’
The expression on the little meatball’s face changed in an instance. ‘Sister, are you blind?’
‘How could this old meatball be your elder brother? How could he be considered your brother?
‘Even as your father, he would already be considered old!’
