At the Hao Mansion, Mrs Chen was overwhelmed to see Yuan Gun Gun return home with a little boy who looked exactly like Hao Yan Che.
‘Gun Gun, why are you so skinny?’ Mrs Chen asked.
Yuan Gun Gun hid behind Hao Yan Che. She didn’t recognise Mrs Chen.
‘Gun Gun, what’s wrong?’ Mrs Chen asked. ‘Don’t you recognise aunty Chen?’
Hao Yan Che held Yuan Gun Gun’s hand.
‘Aunty Che, Gun Gun lost her memory,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Lost her memory?’ Mrs Chen asked.
‘Aunty Chen, prepare meals and bring it to the master bedroom,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che didn’t want Mrs Chen to cry in front of Yuan Gun Gun and scare Yuan Gun Gun.
Mrs Chen understood, and walked to the kitchen.
Yuan Gun Gun was disappointed she couldn’t remember Mrs Chen.
‘Gun Gun, don’t worry,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘You’ll slowly remember everything.’
‘Um,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘I’ll take you to your room,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che took Yuan Gun Gun and their son to the master bedroom.
In the master bedroom, Yuan Gun Gun stared at the wedding portrait on a wall. The bride in the portrait had her face, but a rice ball body unlike her stick body. The rice ball bride was smiling and hugging the groom’s neck. The groom kissed the rice ball bride’s forehead. The warm wedding portrait moved her heart.
Hao Yan Che hugged Yuan Gun Gun’s waist from behind.
‘This is evidence you married me,’ Hao Yan Che whispered in Yuan Gun Gun’s ear.
Yuan Gun Gun escaped Hao Yan Che’s embrace.
‘I didn’t know I was that round before I gave birth to Hao Hao,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Hao Yan Che was unhappy Yuan Gun Gun was scared of being close to him.
‘Mummy, put me down,’ Na Liu Hao said.
Yuan Gun Gun put Na Liu Hao down on the giant bed.
Na Liu Hao looked at the wedding portrait for a while. Then he and Hao Yan Che had a glaring match.
‘Is there a bedroom for Hao Hao?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked. ‘Hao Hao likes having his own bedroom.’
‘Yes,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘Do you want to take Hao Hao to his bedroom?’
‘Later…’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Mummy, I want to go now,’ Na Liu Hao said.
‘Hao Hao, do you want sleep?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Na Liu Hao didn’t take his eyes off Hao Yan Che.
‘Alright,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘Let’s go.’
Yuan Gun Gun wanted to carry Na Liu Hao. But Na Liu Hao jumped off the bed, and followed Hao Yan Che outside. She signed and followed the father and son.
A while later, Hao Yan Che opened a bedroom that was nearby the master bedroom.
‘Son, this is your bedroom,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Na Liu Hao walked into his bedroom, and locked the door.
Outside Na Liu Hao’s bedroom, Yuan Gun Gun smiled apologetically to Hao Yan Che.
‘I’m sorry,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Hao Hao is upset because he wants to see big brother Du.’
‘Gun Gun, do you need to be this courteous with me?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘I’m sorry,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘I don’t remember my past. I don’t you. Right now you’re a stranger to me. I came here to remember my past. I want to know what happened two years ago. That way I can make a decision that is fair for me, you and big brother Du.’
Hao Yan Che clenched his hands.
‘You don’t need to remind me that we’re strangers,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che turned around, walked away from Yuan Gun Gun and she walked back to her bedroom.
On the way downstairs, Mrs Chen stopped Hao Yan Che.
‘Young master, where are you going?’ Mrs Chen asked. ‘I’m bringing the meals to the master bedroom.’
‘Aunty Chen, you don’t need to bring the meals to the master bedroom anymore,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘We’re only strangers to Gun Gun.’
‘Young master, Gun Gun didn’t want to lose her memory,’ Mrs Chen said. ‘If you stay this angry then you’ll scare Gun Gun away.’
Hao Yan Che didn’t answer Mrs Chen.
‘Young master, right now we’re strangers to Gun Gun,’ Mrs Chen said. ‘Knowing Gun Gun, she’ll adjust to her new environment quickly. Young master needs to be patient. She’ll slowly warm up to young master.’
‘Do you think so?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
