Chapter 6: A Gifted Son
She had cursed the Lu Group to fall into a state of bankruptcy. Unbeknownst to her, her curse did not materialize. Instead, the Lu Group had grown rapidly and even had its office set up in a large building.
Thinking of Lu Junxuan and Shen Junyao, and the thought of them holding onto her father’s shares which he had once owned during his lifetime, the four years of buried resentment resurged like a tide sweeping over her.
If there ever came a day where she finally acquired the means to do so, she would surely take back ownership of her father’s shares.
She solemnly made this pledge in her heart.
The accommodation which her company had arranged for her was quite good. It was situated at a high-end residential area. There was also a bilingual kindergarten located here. It was well-suited for family with kids.
The company gave her a week off for her to unwind before resuming work.
Cheng Liyue was prepared to spend the week off with her son leisurely going around the city.
However, just after two days, an important client came knocking at her door. Her boss personally called her up, notifying her that a wealthy lady had made a request for her to design a diamond ring for her upcoming wedding anniversary.
Cheng Liyue was a notable figure in the company. She was a designer who was sought after by the rich and famous.
She just came off the phone with her boss and her client was already waiting to meet her back at the company. However, her kid hadn’t even been enrolled yet, so she had no choice but to bring him along with her.
“Xiao Ze, listen to mommy, I’ll be meeting some clients in a while, you stay in mommy’s office, don’t run about, okay?” Cheng Li Yue softly warned the little boy.
“Mommy, don’t worry, I am very obedient. I will behave.” The little boy blinked his big eyes in earnest and nodded.
Cheng Liyue looked at her son’s beautiful, almond-shaped eyes, and his little handsome, refined face. People who had seen him had said that apart from his fair skin, his features did not resemble hers.
This made Cheng Liyue’s heart bitter. If he did not resemble her, then this must mean that he resembled his father. In her mind, what the man looked like that night, she could not remember.
Whether he was old, ugly, tall or short, she had absolutely no clue.
However, when she saw her son exceeding the average height of that of a three-year-old, and approaching the height of a five-year-old, with good looks that were beyond her expectations, she felt that the Heavens had blessed her.
What’s more, the IQ of her child was that of a genius. At a young age, he was adept at everything including conversing in both Mandarin and English. Interestingly enough, her kid had even helped out her aunt’s grandson, who was already in the third grade of primary school, with his homework.
His IQ was too terrifying.
“Mommy, there you go staring at me again. Am I that good-looking?” The little boy quipped.
Cheng Liyue kissed him on the forehead. “Mommy gave birth to you, of course you’re good-looking.”
“Mommy, everyone says that I don’t look like you. So I must look like Daddy.”
Cheng Liyue’s heart clenched. She felt a twinge of guilt at the absence of a father figure in his life.
“Does that mean as long as a man resembled me, he could be my father?” The little boy was filled with excitement. “What does he look like? Daddy must be an older version of me.”
Cheng Liyue smiled and looked down at her watch. “Alright, I’m going to be late. Let’s go!”
Cheng Liyue took a cab to the company. Her office was located in a multi-storied building that could be considered impressive. Cheng Liyue strode to the center. Looking up, she caught sight of an imposing skyscraper. What was unique about it was that this skyscraper comprised of three towers, slicing up the skyline, converging to a single point at the pinnacle akin to a colossal pyramid, looming over the surrounding buildings.
Cheng Liyue looked at the Lu group’s company not far away. In front of this building, it seemed like it had lose out on its imposingness.
What corporation was this? It was simply too OP.
“Wow! How beautiful!” The little boy exclaimed. He already had a sense of appreciation for the finer things in life.
Cheng Liyue’s office was right beside this skyscraper. Compared to it, her office was no doubt smaller. However, it was still situated smack dab in the heart of the central business district. Here, an inch of land was an inch of gold.
Even if it was just a small high-rise building, it had to be an established company.
