MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE, VOLUME 8 - Season 13 Episode 62
The Gu family had put in a lot of effort into Shiyuan’s birthday celebration.
As it was proposed by the relatives, they were also the ones who prepared it.
Handing the preparation to the relatives would only make it more lavish. Unlike how Gu Jingze liked to keep things on a low-profile, the other relatives felt that they shouldn’t take things about Gu Jingze’s daughter simply. They wanted the best in everything, to show that they viewed this Third Miss in high regards.
The reason she was referred to as Third Miss was because there were the Eldest Young Master Niannian, and the Second Miss Little Nian. She was ranked third amongst them, and thus referred to as Third Miss.
That night, the entire manor that the relatives spent money to reserve, was completed filled with decorations.
The place was brightly lit from inside out.
Amidst the entire world of white, there was even artificial snow.
The children from the various relatives’ families were on the ground, playing.
Niannian brought Yunyun over. Yunyun hadn’t been happy recently as Uncle Mo and her mom had fallen out. It had been very long since she had a meal together with Uncle Mo, and it had been very long since she had Uncle Mo tell her a bedtime story.
Niannian saw that she wasn’t in a good mood and thus brought her over to cheer her up.
Li Wei was also with them, following behind them.
There were Little Nian from Gu Jingming’s family and Little Pingguo from Lu Beichen’s family.
The few children were about the same age and usually played with each other at the kindergarten as well. Naturally, all of them had come here with Niannian.
There were too few boys and too many girls. Gu Shinian was the one who took the lead, followed by Li Wei, who tried to help out.
When Yunyun sat there, Li Wei quickly ran around to get her a drink, as well as bring her fruits and snacks.
However, Yunyun still wasn’t in a good mood. She kept on pouting as she looked in front of her.
It was until she saw Mo Jingyan here that she quickly jumped up.
“Uncle Mo.” She skipped toward him, calling out.
Mo Jingyan walked over and carried her up. “Good Yunyun.”
Yunyun cried as she looked at him. “Uncle Mo, you don’t want me and my mama anymore?”
Black Eagle frowned. “How can that be possible?”
“Then why doesn’t mama goes to uncle’s place anymore? Why don’t I go to uncle’s place anymore either?”
Black Eagle stroke her fringe. “It’s because your mama is angry with an uncle, but she’ll be appeased very soon. You should try to coax your mama more as well, getting her to forgive uncle earlier. Uncle will be able to go back then.”
Yunyun nodded, wiping away her tears. “When I get back, I’ll tell mama to quickly forgive uncle. I want uncle to tell me bedtime stories.”
Black Eagle kissed her dotingly on the forehead. “Good. Uncle will go visit you every day in the future, telling you bedtime stories.”
Gu Shinian watched at the side. “Is uncle going to use an indirect method?”
Black Eagle lowered his head and asked, “What do you know?”
Gu Shinian crossed his arms in front of his chest. “I told you that you should have told the truth earlier, but you didn’t.”
Black Eagle felt that being reprimanded by a child… was really speechless.
He narrowed his eyes and glared at Gu Shinian.
But if he said the truth then, Mu Feiran might not have bothered with him then.
With him saying the truth at this stage, at least, there’d be some feelings between them. Even if Mu Feiran refused him, she wouldn’t be that determined.
Right now, he still had a little bit of hope.
“Uncle Mo, Mr. Chi is inviting you to head over.”
Black Eagle nodded and wanted to head off socialize with others.
Black Eagle wanted to leave, but Yunyun pulled at his sleeves, unwilling to let him go.
Black Eagle sighed, lowered his head, and said, “Come along. I’ll bring you along, alright?”
Hearing that, Yunyun smiled happily.
Black Eagle wasn’t angry with Yunyun at all. He carried her up and walked over.
Yunyun, who was carried by Black Eagle, sat in his arms, behaving herself. Everyone was a little surprised as they looked at Black Eagle.
Why was there a child in his arms?
Gu Shinian shook his head, not knowing what to say. Li Wei asked, “Why did he bring Yunyun away with him?”
Gu Shinian looked at Li Wei. “If you wish to marry Yunyun in the future, you’ll have to get into his good books.”
Li Wei’s face was flushed red. “Who wants to marry… We’re still young. What rubbish are you spouting about.”
Gu Shinian had his small hands behind his back, appearing like a little adult.
Although the adults had their own circles, the children had their own circles as well.
And this circle would more or less be related to the adults.
It was because the relatives would definitely remind their child who those people were, and who they might become in the future.
A few of them were direct descendants of the Gu family and were different from the other relatives.
The relatives reminded their own children. “Don’t create any trouble with those children over there.”
“Why?” The children were all puzzled.
“What are their identities? They are direct descendants and will be inheriting the position of the head of the Gu family in the future. They are closer between themselves and not with you. It’s fine if you guys want to go over and play, but you must be careful. You can spend time with them, but don’t kick up a fuss. No matter what, you must remember the importance of seniority. You have different statuses as well. If things blow up, even we won’t be able to help you.”
The children were all very lost, but after being threatened, they felt that they might really be different from those children. Therefore, they kept their distance from them.
In fact, Gu Shinian and Lin Che had never told the children about the differences in social statuses. Gu Shinian had never thought that he was any different from other children either, even though it was true that he didn’t care for ordinary children, and felt that they were very childish.
However, they could still only play with each other.
It was because the attitude the other children had when they came over made them felt uncomfortable. Some of them acted very carefully while others harbored hostility due to the influence of their parents. Thus, many looked at them with strange gazes.
As time passed, these children formed their own groups as well.
After all, everyone wanted to play together with people they were comfortable with.
Little Pingguo and Little Nian got along well together. It was because they could be considered to have grown up together. Things were the same for Gu Shinian and Yunyun as well. Although Li Wei had only joined in recently, he had slowly gotten along with the group. They were very comfortable together and got along well, so they sat down together.
“Niannian, why hasn’t your younger sister come out yet?” Little Pingguo asked.
“I don’t know. Maybe Mama is dolling her up.”
Lin Che usually loved to dress Gu Shiyuan up in pretty clothes, and would spend a lot of time each time.
Niannian said, “You women are troublesome.”
Little Pingguo said, “You’re spouting rubbish. I’m a girl.”
Niannian glared at her. “You’ll also become a woman in the future. You’ll be like your mama, a pain when you go out.”
“You’re spouting rubbish. My mama isn’t that much of a pain.”
Gu Shinian said, “What do you mean that Aunt isn’t that much of a pain… She would need to take at least an hour to doll up every time she goes out.”
“That’s because my mama is beautiful, hmph.”
“Sigh, I just can’t chat with women.”
“Hey, your sister is out.”
Gu Shiyuan was brought out by her nanny, staggering as she walked out.
Although children would have learned to walk at two-year-old, they would always appear unstable when they did.
The servant held onto her from behind, but Shiyuan still sat right down on the ground.
The servant quickly wanted to pull the child up.
