Chapter 920: Who would mock their own child like that?
Translator: Henyee, eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
Ye Wanwan was too occupied with the little boy that she didn’t have the time to worry about those five people and merely overheard them saying that this child looked like her.
Ye Wanwan only noticed it now. It was quite imperceptible to her at first, but now that they mentioned it, he did look a little like her, huh?
However, Nameless Nie already told her that she looked similar to his sister, so it made sense for this child to look a little like her.
Ye Wanwan gave the five of them looks of warning and ordered them to get to work. The five of them, who were gossiping in full swing, then scattered like birds.
Master definitely didn’t have the time to worry about them.
In just a moment, the living room was left with only Ye Wanwan and Nie Tang Xiao alone.
Ye Wanwan dragged a huge pile of snacks out and even prepared a glass of orange juice for the little fella. Then she sat on the sofa in the living room with him.
Nie Tang Xiao sat upright on the sofa. His black eyes slowly scanned the living room like a little kitty inspecting its environment.
Ye Wanwan didn’t know how to get along with a child and she couldn’t really feign civility in front of this child, so she tried to think of something to say.
“Haha, Tangtang, your name is really nice. Is there any special meaning behind it?”
Nie Tang Xiao: “Mommy, you forgot?”
Being examined by the little fella’s innocent eyes, Ye Wanwan immediately felt guilt-ridden. “Oh, sorry about that. Mommy was injured before and forgot many things…”
Ye Wanwan spoke and suddenly realized something was wrong.
Ay? Why should I feel guilty? I’m not really his mother anyway!
Nie Tang Xiao: “Nevermind, I can tell mommy.”
Ye Wanwan hurriedly said, “En. sure, sure! You tell mommy then!”
The little fella replied, “You gave me this name because when you had me, you really liked eating little sweet and sour pork chops – ‘Tang Xiao’ is a homonym with ‘Tang Xiao.’ So, you gave me the name Nie Tang Xiao.”
Ye Wanwan: “…”
Ye Wanwan was speechless. She was probably in a daze for at least ten seconds before she reacted to what he said.
What on earth is this huh?!
Tang Xiao? She might as well have named him pork chop directly then! Who would mock their own child like that?
She even thought it had some special meaning behind it, but in the end, it was just because the mom liked eating sweet and sour pork chops? Did she have any sense of culture at all, huh!
*Cough cough* “Sorry Tangtang… mommy seems to have been too hasty with this name…”
Ye Wanwan felt really miserable pretending to be his mother – she had to keep taking the blame!
Nie Tang Xiao: “It’s alright.”
The little fella didn’t take it to heart at all and once again made Ye Wanwan feel that the difficult little devil that Nameless Nie described wasn’t this little boy at all.
At first, she was prepared for the worst…
However, looking at the little fella’s indifferent and cold face and the sense of alienation that was inconsistent with his age, Ye Wanwan’s heart ached a little.
It was probably because he hadn’t had his parents by his side ever since he was little, which led to his aloof temperament. The feeling this child gave was like he was isolated and he wasn’t carefree or bubbly like a child should be.
Ye Wanwan sighed lightly and squatted down in front of the little fella. She stretched out her arm and rubbed his tiny head. “Tangtang, although mommy can’t really remember the past, mommy named you after her favorite food – little sweet and sour pork chops. This means mommy must’ve really loved you very, very much!”
The little fella’s clear eyes glistened like the light of the stars…
