‘Ting Liu, I’m begging you out of consideration I loved you for years, let me and Gun Gun go,’ Feng Du Du said. ‘There are many women lining up to have a child with you.’
Feng Du Du thought it wasn’t worth losing herself to love Yuan Ting Liu.
Yuan Ting Liu was angry on the inside, but stayed calm on the outside.
‘No, you’re my wife and Gun Gun is our daughter,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
‘Do you know you’re killing me?’ Feng Du Du asked.
Yuan Ting Liu carried Feng Du Du to the sofa.
‘It’s your fault,’ Yuan Ting Liu said. ‘You shouldn’t have left me.’
‘It’s my fault for loving you,’ Feng Du Du said. ‘If I didn’t love you, I wouldn’t have married you. For you it doesn’t matter who you marry, you can still live with any woman.’
Feng Du Du cried on the sofa.
‘For years I did everything to please you,’ Feng Du Du said. ‘But if we weren’t sleeping together, you would be cold toward me. You didn’t love me. I didn’t do anything wrong by leaving you. When I found out I was pregnant. I didn’t want the baby to find out their parents had contract marriage. I told Gun Gun that her dad was missing. At least in Gun Gun’s heart, her dad loved her.’
‘How can you say you didn’t do anything wrong?’ Yuan Ting Liu asked. ‘You secretly took our daughter away and left me. You said you loved me for five years. But you don’t understand me. If you did understand me then you wouldn’t have left. You would have known I care about you, and I like being with you. Yes, I’m a cold person. But it doesn’t mean I hate you, and don’t need you and our daughter. You’re my wife. If you think our relationship is only a contract marriage then don’t think about seeing Gun Gun again.’
Yuan Ting Liu wiped Feng Du Du’s tears. He wouldn’t have said such embarrassing words if he wasn’t talking to Feng Du Du.
‘Are you saying you like you?’ Feng Du Du asked.
‘I don’t hate you,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
Feng Du Du looked away from Yuan Ting Liu.
‘I love you,’ Yuan Ting Liu whispered.
Feng Du Du looked at Yuan Ting Liu. She thought she heard him say he loved her.
Yuan Ting Liu blushed.
‘Even if what I said was true, for now you can’t see Gun Gun,’ Yuan Ting Liu said. ‘It’s your punishment for leaving me. I’ll let you see Gun Gun after you reflected about what you did wrong. You’re not allowed to leave me again.’
Feng Du Du hugged Yuan Ting Liu’s neck, and she cried on his shoulder.
‘Ting Liu, I won’t leave you again,’ Feng Du Du said.
Yuan Ting Liu was happy to hear Feng Du Du agreed to stay with him. He must love her if he wanted to change to make her happy.
‘When can I see Gun Gun?’ Feng Du Du asked. ‘I admit it was wrong of me to leave you.’
‘If you be good, I’ll let you see Gun Gun in a few days,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
‘Promise?’ Feng Du Du asked.
‘Yes,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
‘Then you can’t bring your women here… no, you can’t see your women outside either,’ Feng Du Du said. ‘If you do, I’ll take Gun Gun and we’ll run away where you can’t find us.’
‘You’re the only woman in my life,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
‘That day…’ Feng Du Du said.
‘That day I was angry and I brought a woman here to make you jealous,’ Yuan Ting Liu said. ‘I didn’t do anything with that woman.’
‘That day I put laxatives in the tea for you and her to drink,’ Feng Du Du said.
Yuan Ting Liu was happy Feng Du Du didn’t change.
‘I’m sorry,’ Feng Du Du said. ‘Don’t be angry.’
‘I’m not angry,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
Yuan Ting Liu hugged Feng Du Du. He loved everything about her. He needed to find Yuan Gun Gun soon before she found out Yuan Gun Gun was missing. He prayed Yuan Gun Gun was safe.
At the Hao Mansion, in the guest room, Qiu Li Luo brushed Yuan Gun Gun’s hair while Yuan Gun Gun licked a lollipop.
‘Gun Gun, do you know your daddy’s name?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘Aunty Li, daddy told me his name once,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘But I don’t remember daddy’s name. I only know he’s my daddy.’
Qiu Li Luo was surprised Yuan Gun Gun forgot her daddy’s name.
‘Gun Gun, do you remember your mummy’s name?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘Yes,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Mummy’s name is Feng Du Du.’
Qiu Li Luo thought she misheard Yuan Gun Gun called her mummy Fat Du Du.
‘Gun Gun, are you sure your mummy’s name is Fat Du Du?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
Yuan Gun Gun was busy licking her lollipop, and she heard Qiu Li Luo asked if her mummy’s name was Feng Du Du.
‘Yes,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Gun Gun, sit still,’ Qiu Li Luo said.
Qiu Li Luo attached a pink butterfly clip to Yuan Gun Gun’s hair, and she kissed Yuan Gun Gun’s loveable face. Yuan Gun Gun smiled at her and kissed her face too.
‘Gun Gun, do you like aunty and uncle Que?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘Yes,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Aunty Li and uncle Que are beautiful.’
Qiu Li Luo squeezed Yuan Gun Gun’s cheeks.
‘Gun Gun do you want to be aunty and uncle Que’s daughter-in-law?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘Aunty Li what is daughter-in-law?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘It means Gun Gun will marry aunty and uncle Que’s son,’ Qiu Li Luo said.
Yuan Gun Gun scratched her head.
‘Aunty Li, what is marry?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘After Gun Gun marry aunty and uncle Que’s son, Gun Gun will come here often to play,’ Qiu Li Luo said. ‘When Gun Gun come here to visit aunty, aunty can prepare delicious food for you and buy you beautiful clothes. If you marry aunty and uncle Que’s son, aunty will give you everything you want.’
‘Aunty Li, I want your big dog,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘What big dog?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘The big dog with white fur,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘The big dog has beautiful violet eyes like aunty Li’s eyes. The big dog carried me here. I love the big dog. Aunty Li, where’s the big dog?’
Qiu Li Luo smiled. She didn’t know if Yuan Gun Gun wasn’t scared of werewolves or if Yuan Gun Gun didn’t understand how dangerous werewolves were.
‘Gun Gun, do you really love the big dog?’ Qiu Li Luo asked. ‘Aren’t you scared of the big dog?’
‘I really love the big dog,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘I’m not scared of the big dog.’
‘Gun Gun, do you really want to see the big dog?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘Yes, I want to see the big dog,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Aunty will let Gun Gun see the big dog,’ Qiu Li Luo said.
Qiu Li Luo got off Yuan Gun Gun’s bed, and she transformed into a werewolf. A blinding silver light radiated the room.
Three minutes later, Yuan Gun Gun saw the big white dog sitting on the floor in front of her.
Qiu Li Luo hoped Yuan Gun Gun wouldn’t disappoint me. She waited or Yuan Gun Gun’s reaction.
Yuan Gun Gun dropped the lollipop in her hand, and Qiu Li Luo felt disappointed Yuan Gun Gun wasn’t happy to see the big dog.
