Take Off Your Clothes
Huo Sicheng didn’t answer Gu Qingcheng’s question. Instead, he reached out his long arms and held the child.
“Huo Xuan, did you miss me?” His cold face became gentle and doting.
Huo Xuan nodded and replied softly, “I miss Daddy very much.”
“I did ask you to attend the birthday party today.” Huo Sicheng comforted Huo Xuan lovingly. When he turned to look at Gu Qingcheng, the gentleness on his face was replaced by coldness. “It’s her birthday party.”
Gu Qingcheng’s jaw dropped.
Huo Sicheng claimed to be his father, and the child’s surname was also Huo. He admitted that the child was his son.
She had never known that he was married. He was even impotent. How could he have a child?
Donor offspring? An adopted child?
No matter how this child came about, the information was too explosive for her to digest.
Huo Xuan followed his father’s gaze and looked at Gu Qingcheng. He blinked his big black eyes and smiled brightly at her. “Mommy.”
“Mom?” Gu Qingcheng was so shocked that her voice cracked. Then, she quickly denied, “I’m not your mother. Don’t simply call me that.”
“I didn’t simply call you that.” Huo Xuan told Gu Qingcheng seriously. “We’ve never had a woman in our family. Even the servants are men. Grandpa Zhao said that my mother was the first girl to come to our house.”
Then, he broke free from his father’s embrace and threw himself at Gu Qingcheng, hugging her thighs and shouting happily, “Mom, I’m your child!”
Gu Qingcheng could feel Huo Xuan’s arms around her, and she looked at Huo Sicheng with a complicated expression.
From Huo Xuan’s words, she knew there were no women in Wanmei Villa, which meant that Huo Sicheng was single.
No, that couldn’t be.
If he was single, how did he get this son?
She lowered her eyes and looked at Huo Xuan, who was hugging her tightly.
This child was not an ordinary little boy because he had a head of white hair and was snow-white all over. He was extraordinary.
She was not afraid of him because, in her first impression, he looked like a beautiful little angel. He was charming, and she liked him.
However, no matter how much she liked Huo Xuan, she was still a virgin. She could not be called a mother for no reason.
She wanted to reject Huo Xuan forcefully, but her heart softened when she met the kid’s watery eyes that were filled with anticipation.
“Little Xuanxuan, although I like you very much, I’m really not your mother.” She was afraid of scaring Huo Xuan, so she coaxed him softly. “Be good. Things have changed. I’ll take you to your real mother.”
Although Gu Qingcheng was coaxing Huo Xuan gently, his eyes were still red and teary. “Mom, are you unwilling to have me because you dislike my different appearance?”
Gu Qingcheng looked at Huo Xuan’s pitiful face. Her heart ached, and she was annoyed that she had spoken too harshly.
“No, I don’t dislike you. You’re so cute. I like you very much.”
“Does Mommy really like me?” Huo Xuan asked Gu Qingcheng said with tears in his eyes. “If she really does, she should want me, not abandon me.”
For the first time in her life, Gu Qingcheng was at a loss for words.
If it were an adult, she could quickly solve the problem. However, Huo Xuan was like a little angel, making her heart ache so much that she could not speak.
Huo Sicheng noticed the change in Gu Qingcheng’s expression. He shot Mr. Zhao a look.
Mr. Zhao understood and went forward to pick Huo Xuan up. “Young Master, it’s getting late,” he coaxed. “You still have to go to school tomorrow. I’ll bring you to bed.”
“I don’t want to sleep. If I sleep and wake up again, I’m afraid that it’ll be a dream, and I won’t be able to see my mother.” Huo Xuan reached out his little arms to Gu Qingcheng; his eyes were wide and eager. “Mommy, hug…”
Gu Qingcheng watched as Mr. Zhao carried Huo Xuan away. The look of anticipation in his eyes made her breathing hurt.
Just how much was he yearning for his mother? Was that why he was unwilling to sleep when he saw her? He was afraid he would never see her again when he woke up.
“Huo Sicheng, you still haven’t told me what happened.” She took a deep breath and asked Huo Sicheng.
“It is as you saw.” Huo Sicheng said lightly and left in his wheelchair.
Gu Qingcheng looked at the dinner table in surprise, then glanced at Huo Sicheng, sitting across from her and eating elegantly. She sat down to eat.
After rebirth, she hadn’t taken a single drop of food or water. She only cared about beating up scum and slapping them in the face. Now, she was a little hungry after smelling the fragrance of food.
Huo Sicheng didn’t explain anything about Huo Xuan to her along the way, and she didn’t ask further.
If Huo Sicheng wanted to tell her the truth, she didn’t have to ask him twice, and he would also not reply with a mere few words. Therefore, she did not ask anymore. She only needed to be the mother Huo Xuan wanted.
As for Huo Sicheng’s marriage status, the location of Huo Xuan’s biological mother, and what was going on between the father and son, she would slowly find out.
“I don’t have any experience in taking care of children.” She looked at Huo Sicheng seriously and said, “But I will try my best to be a good mother and treat Huo Xuan as my own.”
Huo Sicheng saw the determination in Gu Qingcheng’s eyes, and his eyes flashed.
Gu Qingcheng couldn’t help but feel slightly annoyed by Huo Sicheng’s words. What kind of person did he take her for?
She didn’t need money or power. He was all she wanted.
“Huo Sicheng!” She said each word clearly and announced domineeringly, “I announced at the engagement party that I only want you.”
Huo Sicheng leaned back in his chair. Gu Qingcheng’s bright and determined eyes made his heart race. He clenched his fists so tightly that his knuckles turned white.
“You’ve already seen my son and still want to marry me?” His face was as cold as ice, and he said to her in disgust, “Where did you put my wife? Or are you born to be a mistress? You’re so shameless!”
Given Gu Qingcheng’s fiery temper in her past life, she would’ve definitely hit Huo Sicheng if he dared to talk to her like that.
However, she could not do that this time. She was here to woo him, not to humiliate him as she did in her previous life.
However, her face turned pale after being scolded so bluntly, and her heart ached.
She remembered that she had almost fallen once, and Huo Sicheng had caught her in time to prevent her from falling and making a fool of herself. At that time, she was provoked by Qin Jun. She hated him for touching her and scolded him for being shameless.
She could still remember Huo Sicheng’s terrible expression. He must have been feeling as bad as she was now.
She couldn’t help but feel sorry for him and was upset about how mean she had been to him in the past.
“What about your wife? Why don’t I see her?” Instead of getting angry, she smiled and asked him gently, “Little Xuanxuan said that there’s not a single woman in Wanmei Villa. If your wife is here, ask her to appear and meet me. No matter what, you and I are childhood sweethearts. We’re considered family. She, the matriarch of the Huo family, doesn’t lose face when she sees me.”
Seeing that Gu Qingcheng wasn’t angry, Huo Sicheng’s eyes flickered. He pursed his thin lips and said in a deep voice, “You are not qualified to see her.”
“You know well enough if I’m unqualified to see her or if you don’t have a wife at all. Unless you let your wife meet me face to face, I won’t believe a word you say,” Gu Qingcheng said meaningfully. She rested her chin on her hand and looked at Huo Sicheng gently. “Huo Sicheng, you can’t run away. You can only belong to me. We’ll register our marriage tomorrow morning.”
Huo Sicheng’s clenched fists trembled slightly as he listened to Gu Qingcheng’s repeated confessions. It was obvious how emotional he was.
But his face was still cold as if he didn’t care about a word she said.
“Do you really want to be my wife that much?”
“Very much.” Gu Qingcheng said sincerely.
Huo Sicheng stared at Gu Qingcheng for a long time, then said coldly, “Come here.”
Startled, Gu Qingcheng stood up and walked over to Huo Sicheng, looking at him with a confused expression.
Huo Sicheng looked at Gu Qingcheng, who was so close to him, and his dark eyes flashed with a burning desire.
“Strip?” Gu Qingcheng was stunned. “Take what off?”
“Take off your clothes!”
Gu Qingcheng felt a surge of anger in her heart, and her fair face was flushed red from being humiliated by Huo Sicheng.
Damn Huo Sicheng! How dare he ask her to take off her clothes in front of him in the living room?
What did he take her for?
“Huo Sicheng! You’re courting death!” She glared at Huo Sicheng angrily and clenched her fists, ready to punch him.
“Didn’t you want to be my woman? Then take off your clothes, and let me see if your figure is worthy of me marrying you. Are you taking it off or not?” Huo Sicheng asked sarcastically.
