Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
After everyone left, Ye Wanwan and Si Yehan were the only people left in the courtyard.
The faint smile Ye Wanwan used to send off Tangtang still remained on her face.
Si Yehan sighed lightly and pulled her into his arms.
Ye Wanwan’s repressed emotions seemed to flood out instantly. Her voice was hoarse as she asked, “Ah-Jiu, I want Tangtang. Can’t Tangtang be my child?”
Si Yehan caressed her hair. “Tangtang isn’t our child, after all. His true parents are still waiting for him.”
“I don’t care! I want Tangtang! I’m Tangtang’s mom! I promised I’d always be with Tangtang!”
“If you like… we can also have a child later.”
“I don’t want one! I only want Tangtang!”
In the bedroom:
Ye Wanwan exhausted an overwhelming amount of emotions that day, so she fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.
Si Yehan helped tuck her in the comforter and bent over to plant a kiss against the corner of her teary eyes.
His phone suddenly started vibrating.
There was a string of strange numbers on the phone screen…
The second Si Yehan saw this number, his gentleness was replaced by an all-enveloping murky chilliness. The tranquility and peace in his eyes appeared to have shattered into Asura’s inferno in the blink of an eye, as though he had descended into an abyss bereft of any daylight…
Ye Wanwan slept for a very long time. When she woke up, it was already the next morning.
She drowsily turned her head and immediately met Si Yehan’s intently watchful eyes.
His gaze was peaceful, calm, and content, containing a few traces of reminiscence as well. However, there was an extremely dark tinge in the depths of his eyes, as though he was restraining some extremely repressed feeling and intense pain. His emotions looked like they could break free of their shackles and shred that surface layer of calm at any moment and engulf her like a torrent of lava from a volcanic eruption…
Ye Wanwan’s heart couldn’t help but stutter when she met this kind of gaze. Shortly after, sour pain inexplicably rushed into her heart due to the reminiscence and pain in Si Yehan’s eyes.
“You’re awake.” Si Yehan’s eyes regained their clarity instantly, as though all of his emotions was a cloud of fog swept away by a breeze.
Ye Wanwan’s brows furrowed slightly. Although she was a bit hazy from just waking up, she was 100% certain that what she saw wasn’t her imagination.
“You… didn’t sleep the whole night?” Ye Wanwan probed furtively.
For some reason, she had a feeling… Si Yehan watched her the whole night just like that…
Si Yehan’s expression was natural without any peculiarity. “I just woke up. I was about to head to the office.”
“Oh…” Ye Wanwan nodded before intently looking up at Si Yehan all of a sudden. “Si Yehan… Have we met before? What I’m saying is… did we know each other a long time ago… but I forgot?”
The borders of Si Yehan’s impenetrable expression seemingly froze a little but they melted away in the blink of an eye. “We didn’t.”
Ye Wanwan nodded. “That’s true. With looks like yours… there’s no way I could’ve forgotten after seeing you…”
Ye Wanwan glanced at the time on her phone. “I also have to go to the office.”
Si Yehan asked, “You’re not going to rest for a few days?”
Ye Wanwan shook her head. She was afraid she wouldn’t be able to keep herself from thinking about Tangtang if she had nothing to do.
Their home felt like it had turned cold and empty without Tangtang…
Ye Wanwan stretched and drew up her energy. She said with a chuckle, “Although I was successful in this step, I still can’t lower my guard! I’m still super far away from being powerful and being able to cover the sky with one hand at my current stage! Don’t you remember my distant goal from back then?”
