Chapter 155: Jealous of Her Own Son

Huo Xuan shook his head.

“I don’t know.”

After he finished speaking, he thought for a moment and said, “But I heard from Mr. Zhao that you and Mom have known each other for many years.”

“I’ve known your mother since we were your age,” Huo Sicheng told Huo Xuan lovingly.

Huo Xuan was surprised. “We were childhood sweethearts.”

Huo Sicheng nodded.

“Then why did Dad marry Mom so late?” Huo Xuan asked. “Is that why you brought Mom home?”

“It’s a long story.” Huo Sicheng’s eyes were filled with bitterness as he gently spoke to Huo Xuan. “But I can tell you that I’ve been waiting for your mother since she was your age. I’ve been waiting for her to grow up and become a mature woman. I’ve been waiting for her to be my woman for many years.”

“That’s why Dad said that your mother can only be mine. Even if you’re my son, I’ll be jealous if you try to take my woman.”

“Hehe.” Huo Xuan smiled happily and winked at Huo Sicheng. “Don’t worry.

Mommy only belongs to Daddy.”

He had heard from Mr. Zhao that after his father’s parents passed away, he had been living a hard life.

Since he was born, he had always been doted on by his father, so he hoped that his father would live a happy life.

Huo Sicheng hugged Huo Xuan affectionately.

“Be good.”

“What are you two talking about?” Gu Qingcheng walked up to Huo Sicheng and Huo Xuan with two bowls of soup. “I see you two are having a good time.”

“Mommy,” Huo Xuan immediately told Gu Qingcheng, “Daddy said that he’s going to make you the happiest woman in the world.”

Gu Qingcheng looked at Huo Siqian. “Are you sure?” Or did Huo Xuan make the decision to tell me on your behalf?”

“Huo Xuan made the decision on her own.” Huo Sicheng didn’t lie to Gu Qingcheng and told her the truth. “But I do want to spoil you and make you the happiest woman in the world. Do you agree?”

“Of course I agree, but you have to change the word ‘woman’ to ‘wife’.” Gu Qingcheng placed the soup in front of Huo Sicheng and smiled sweetly. “Only when someone dotes on you can you be confident.” You pamper me, and III support you. I’ll definitely take advantage of this.”

Huo Sicheng chuckled. “You make it sound so appealing, as if you want me to be your protector.”

Gu Qingcheng didn’t need Huo Sicheng to be her protector. She only needed him as a person. That was all.

However, she did not argue. Disagreeing would dampen the warm atmosphere.

“Try this soup. Is it too bland? If it is, I’ll add a touch of salt.”

“Mom, it’s delicious.” Huo Xuan took a sip first. “No need to add salt.”

Gu Qingcheng nodded and glanced at Huo Sicheng.

“It’s delicious.”

Gu Qingcheng laughed and teased Huo Sicheng. “You’d probably say it’s delicious even if I fed you poison.”

Indeed, Huo Sicheng would eat anything Gu Qingcheng cooked, even if she poisoned it.

For her, he had always been willing to endure anything.

Six dishes and a bowl of soup. For the first time in a long while, the family of three relished a warm and joyful dinner, devoid of arguments or estrangement.

Late into the night, Gu Qingcheng dozed off in Huo Sicheng’s embrace.

Huo Sicheng’s soft kisses landed on Gu Qingcheng’s ebony hair. He didn’t want to sleep.

He feared that if he dozed off, upon waking, all the happiness he presently cherished would prove to be nothing but a dream.

Suddenly, the screen of Gu Qingcheng’s phone on the nightstand lit up. He glanced at it and furrowed his brows.

In the middle of the night, Qi Shaoze was still calling her, sparking his jealousy.

He jokingly grumbled into her ear, “You, stop luring in wildflowers.”

Late at night, Gu Mei occupied the VIP room of the bar. She clutched a cigarette in her left hand and a glass of wine in her right. She stared at the photos on the table in front of her in a rebellious manner.

In the photo, Gu Qingcheng radiated ethereal beauty, as though from another world. The wind tousled her flowing dress into a graceful arc, and she exuded an air of sanctity and nobility.

Gazing at the stunning Gu Qingcheng, Gu Mei took a long drag of her cigarette.

Jealousy twisted her features.

“B*tch!” She seethed at Gu Qingcheng. “I’ll ruin you, you tramp! I’ll make you the ugliest woman alive! Let’s see which one of you, Huo Sicheng or Qi Shaoze, will still want you!”

As she ranted, she took another swig of hard liquor and hissed venomously, “Filthy whore, no wonder you vanished abroad for a few years and didn’t return to Jiang City. Who knows which sleazy man you slept with and birthed a bastard! No, calling that creature a bastard is too kind for Gu Qingcheng! What sort of monster did she bear? It’s as pale as a ghost.”

“Ah, even the heavens can’t tolerate an excess of wickedness! Gu Qingcheng must have committed countless vile acts to birth such a monstrosity.”

Across from Gu Mei, a private investigator listened to her berate Gu Qingcheng for an extended period before he interjected, “Miss Gu Mei, five million. I’ll provide you with all the photos.”

With madness flashing in her eyes, Gu Mei stared at the detective.

“We agreed on 500,000, and now you’re jacking up the price by 5 million?” Her voice grew louder. “Do you think I can’t ruin you with a single word?”

Unfazed by her threats, the detective countered, “Miss Gu Mei, you can try. But the moment you try, Huo Sicheng, president of Huo Corporation, and Gu Qingcheng, principal of Royal Dance Academy, will find out that you hired me to investigate this matter.”

Gu Mei raised her hand and hurled the wine glass at the detective.

“Are you daring to threaten me? You’re courting death!”

The detective sidestepped the projectile and said composedly, “In my line of work, I encounter many threats. If you decide not to proceed, the deal’s off.

Naturally, I won’t hand over the negatives to you either. I’ll inform President Huo and the others if the photos get discarded.”

Gu Mei’s face contorted in anger.

She had no choice. She wouldn’t pay the detective five million. Once Huo Sicheng discovered she’d hired a private investigator to secretly capture photos, all her prior efforts would be in vain.

“Fine, five million!” She acquiesced to the detective. “I’ll transfer it to you.” She took out her phone and completed the money transfer.

The detective wasted no time, handing over the negatives and photos to Gu Mei.

“Miss Gu Mei, I look forward to our next collaboration. “Get lost!” Gu Mei screamed hysterically. “Get out!” With calm resolve, the detective departed.

Fuming, Gu Mei glared at Gu Qingcheng’s photo.

“Huo Sicheng, Qi Shaoze, are you both blind? I’m more beautiful than Gu

Qingcheng. I’m the world’s most gorgeous woman! Why do you favor Gu Qingcheng over me?”

“Gu Qingcheng, you deserve to die. Both you and your mother deserve to die!

I’ll definitely kill you. I’ll burn your bones and scatter your ashes!”

At four in the morning at the Gu family’s residence, Chu He, clad in silk pajamas, scolded Gu Mei as she returned home inebriated.

“What time is it?” Chu He’s expression was a mix of fury and annoyance. “I told you, Gu Qingcheng is coming home for lunch today! You’re drunk. Do you think you’ll be able to wake up tomorrow? I need you to look stunning tomorrow, not like a drunken mess!”

Chastised by her mother, Chu He, Gu Mei tossed a photo her way.

Chu He’s voice trembled with shock as she looked at the photo on the ground.

“Is this… Gu Qingcheng and her son?”
