As she spoke, she carefully lit up a matchstick and aimed it at the wire tip, which soon crackled alive and produced fiery sparks .
Little Yichen held the end of the sparkler in great agitation as though he were waiting for the arrival of his enemies . He was so nervous that he dared not move even an inch .
Colored flames and sparks shot out of the ignited sparkler, its flickering glow illuminating his tender visage .
“Wow! This is so pretty!” cried the boy in surprise and excitement .
The woman then handed her younger son a sparkler, too . Unlike his brother who felt nervous and lost due to it being his first time playing with sparklers, Youyou calmly waved the stick in the air .
The psychedelic sparks, which formed dazzling lines as he waved the sparkler in the air, looked beautiful against the night sky .
Seeing that the sparkler could be played this way, the older twin excitedly mimicked his action and waved his piece in the air . The two lads had a fun time playing with the sparklers .
Hua Jin, who was standing at the side, fell into a trance while watching them play around .
Out of the blue, Yun Shishi handed a sparkler to him and smilingly said, “Come, join us . ”
He took the sparkler from her, and she helped him light it up . Multicolored sparks soon lit his smiling face aglow as he gently waved the sparkler while leaning against a boulder on the riverbank .
Gong Jie and Mu Yazhe took way prettier sparklers for themselves and lit them up .
“Ha ha ha!”
Little Yichen’s sparkler soon fizzled out . He could not help feeling utterly envious when he turned around and saw his uncle holding a beautiful sparkler . “Whoa! Yours really pretty! I want one like it, too! I want one, too!”
His uncle walked over, carried him up with one arm, and passed the sparkler in his other hand . “There you go! Hold it properly, and you can play with it!”
“Thank you, uncle!”
With a face-splitting grin, he waved the sparkler around and let it dance mid-air .
By now, Youyou’s stick had also fizzled out . His mother, thus, handed her sparkler for him to play .
As the actor watched the actress happily carrying her son while playing with the sparkler, he felt his heart become heating up as though it had been set ablaze .
At that moment, he suddenly felt that Yun Shishi’s world, be it the woman herself or her surroundings, was shining brilliantly .
He desperately yearned to enter her world, so much so that he did not realize that each of her actions, which seemingly held the power of a level-ten tornado, was capable of unsettling him .
The strong emotions he felt now was akin to that of a naïve youth experiencing his first love . Those feelings flooded him, causing tears to flow down his face unknowingly as he gazed longingly at the woman’s back .
Just when Yun Shishi wanted to call the idol to join them, she incidentally caught sight of him quietly standing behind them; seeing a faint tear streaking down his face, which glowed under the bright lights of the sparklers, shocked her .
Startled, she put down her son at once and approached the actor, only to see him staring dumbly at her face with large, moist eyes .
“Hua Jin… w-what’s wrong…” She helplessly reached out to his face and lightly wiped the tear stains away . “W-What’s wrong? Why are you crying…”
Did I cry?
The actor absent-mindedly touched the corner of his eye, only to feel a stabbing pain in his heart upon feeling the cold, moist sensation on his fingertip .
