Under the sunlight, an extremely eye-catching necklace lay on Gong Jie’s collarbone, sparkling radiantly and attractively .
Youyou noticed the pendant .
He saw how his uncle was always wearing this necklace, never letting it leave his side . It must hold a special meaning to him now that he thought about it .
Therefore, he stealthily hiked onto his uncle’s side, and since the man was wearing sunglasses, he did not know whether he was napping or wide awake . Therefore, he surreptitiously lifted the pendant .
It seemed that the round pendant could be opened . Youyou opened it, realizing that it was a locket .
Both sides of the locker contained photographs . One photo had two kids snuggling with bright and beautiful smiles .
Youyou instantly recognized the children as his mommy and uncle when they were young .
Seeing their appearances, the two were probably seven years old when this picture was taken .
However, Gong Jie did not look as tall as he did now . He was actually shorter than Yun Shishi by half a head .
She was hugging the seven-year-old boy, posing her hand in a V-sign as she gave a brilliant smile with her pearly-white teeth showing between her rosy lips .
Meanwhile, the boy was a bit camershy and hid his head on his sister’s shoulder, looking at the camera with a bashful and reserved smile . His crystal clear eyes were bright and beautiful, and his beautiful, soft, black hair went a bit past his ears . Below his fringe was a docile appearance that was obedient like a lamb .
He wore a snowy-white shirt and a small bow tie . He looked refined and adorable as he had an arm wrapped around his sister’s waist, while his other hand formed a V-sign, too .
However, it was unknown if it was due to shyness, but the two fingers doing the V sign were curled, which made him look timid .
Uncle was clearly adorable when he was young! Youyou mumbled in his heart .
He actually looked similar to him in some ways .
Genes were truly fantastical things!
Why did he grow up to be the demon king, though? He was not only two-faced and evil but also insufferably arrogant .
Inside his head, he pictured little Gong Jie and devil king Gong Jie standing together . One was adorable and innocent like a lamb, while the other was a silver-haired demon wearing sunglasses, with hands stuffed inside his pants’ pockets, his aura lethal and astonishing .
It was as if they were two different people .
Youyou glanced at the other photograph .
In the picture was a young woman sitting on a flower bed, holding a moonflower in her hand as she smiled in a docile manner .
Her complexion was exceedingly similar to his mother . She looked gentle and beautiful, and her face seemed like a woman in a painting . Her eyes were like the mist on a faraway mountain, as gentle as flowing water .
Her black, straight hair was like a waterfall sans any decorations . It cascaded gently all the way to her lower back . There were a few strands that hung on her temples, which made her look even more alluring and charming .
He was amazed once again . Genes were truly fantastical things!
He immediately recognized that this lady was probably his mommy’s mother—his grandmother!
He could tell .
Grandma and mommy liked moonflowers .
Perhaps it was because grandma liked moonflowers that his mommy had always meticulously cared for them in their backyard .
Little Yichen took a peek from the side and widened his eyes in surprise .
“Is this when grandma was young?”
“Yeah!” He nodded his head, his eyes filled with warmth .
“Grandma was also a beauty when she was young,” commented his older brother .
“Of course! What nonsense!”
He flicked his twin’s forehead . “Otherwise, how could she give birth to someone pretty like mommy?”
It was no wonder that their uncle would always keep this pendant with him .
