The boy got dumbfounded . “Why are you upset with my mommy getting married?!”
As he spoke, he cast a skeptical gaze on the man and asked in disdain, “Surely, you don’t have a fetish for your sister, do you?!”
Gong Jie furrowed his brows in total incomprehension . Having spent most of his life abroad, he still found certain terms hard to understand even though he had a good grasp of Chinese .
Take this ‘fetish for your sister’ for example…
What did it mean?
Youyou again felt disdain for the man as he translated the term to English for him .
The latter blanked for a moment and then, after giving it some serious thought, answered, “A little…”
This irked the little one even more .
“There are two important women in my life: one is your grandmother and the other is your mother . ”
“Since my mommy is your beloved kin, shouldn’t you feel happy now that she’s living in happiness?” asked the boy matter-of-factly .
His uncle, however, got a little crestfallen . “Will she be happy?”
“Neither you nor I can decide for her in that aspect, but I believe that mommy always thinks things through before making decisions, so I trust her choice!”
He suddenly let out a sigh and wisely patted his uncle’s shoulder as if he shared the same disappointed feelings as the man’s .
“To be honest, I have mixed emotions about their engagement, too, so I can understand your feelings . ”
The man proceeded to lock his brows in bafflement upon hearing that . “Mixed emotions?”
Following which, his lips twitched as he gave his nephew a side-eye in disdain . “Surely, you don’t have a fetish for your mother, do you?!”
The lad frowned at that . “Mommy is my treasure—the world’s most precious treasure that mustn’t be stained . ”
In the back seat of the car, a sis-con and a momma’s boy exchanged glances and silently sighed in sympathy as they pitifully licked each other’s wounds .
The boy bared his heart to his uncle, pouring all his woes . “Mommy and I have been relying on each other since my birth! No matter how tough life was back then, with mommy by my side, I wasn’t afraid of anything…”
His uncle felt the same, too . “It’s the same for me! No matter how tough life was back then, with sis by my side, I feared nothing at all . ”
Youyou’s eyes suddenly turned vicious . “I didn’t expect a man to show up suddenly, however . ”
The man felt united against a common enemy . “He stole my sis…”
The kid clenched his fists in anger . “That man obviously wants to steal mommy from me . He is my love rival . ”
Troubled feelings settled in Gong Jie . “But he’s the man sis loves . ”
The aggrieved boy muttered, “I still have to call this ‘love rival’ my daddy…”
The man, however, shook his head in determination . “I won’t acknowledge that brother-in-law, though…”
The two people looked at each other and let out a sigh in unison again as they sadly hugged each other in comfort .
“I seemed to have lost half my soul now that mommy’s married . ”
“I feel out of love, too…”
“Still, no matter what, as long as it’s mommy’s choice, I’ll…” The boy clenched his fists tightly . “I’ll give her my blessings!”
His expression was akin to a wounded little animal, though .
A faraway look glazed the man’s eyes . “Nephew, should I attend your mommy’s engagement ceremony?”
“Uncle, with all due respect, aren’t you a little too old to develop a fetish for your sister…” quietly asked the boy .
“Well, in my opinion, since it’s mommy’s choice, shouldn’t you, as her brother, give her your blessings?”
