Chapter 10: Introducing Mommy
Tang Weiwei laughed. “Do you really want to know?”
“Alright, I’ll tell you once we’ve reached the bakery.” Tang Weiwei led him across the street where they soon arrived at a bakery. There was also a leisure area here where Tang Weiwei was planning to keep the little boy company while he ate.
After placing their order, the little boy had not forgotten what she had said.
“Aunt, quickly tell me! What does the richest person look like?”
“Why are you so curious about this?”
“Because I want to be the richest person in the future.” The little boy looked ambitious.
Tang Weiwei could not hold back her laughter. “You’re still just a little bean!”
“Aunt, are you looking down on me? I’m telling you the truth. I’m going to make lots and lots of money in the future. I’m not going to let mommy work hard anymore.”
“I believe you. I believe that you’ll become the richest person.” Tang Weiwei seriously told him. This little fellow was one of the smartest kids that she had ever seen.
“OK, I’ll show you what the richest person looks like. As a matter of fact, both of you share some resemblance!”
“Really? Let me see.” His interest was piqued.
Tang Weiwei googled his name, enlarged the photo and showed it to the little boy.
Against a dark backdrop, an indolent figure reclined on an armchair. The man in the photo looked to be in his prime and had a sophisticated mien. He possessed a flawless disposition and outstanding good looks that carried a hint of devilish charm. His jet-black eyes stared into the lens, glinting with intelligence and shrewdness. He looked bold and resolute.
His eyes rounded as the little boy thought to himself, this… isn’t this how he had pictured his daddy?
Tang Weiwei observed the little fellow carefully and murmured, “You both really look alike! Little bean, where is your daddy?”
The little boy stared at the man in the photo. His lips formed a pout. “I don’t have a daddy.”
Tang Weiwei was stupefied. A cute little kiddo like him, how could he not have a daddy? So, Designer Cheng was raising this child all by herself?
“Aunt Tang, is this man married?”
“Uh… Not that I know of.”
“Then does he have a girlfriend?”
“It seems like there isn’t one.” Tang Weiwei’s reply was based off what she knew from reading the gossip rags.
“What do you think of my mommy becoming his girlfriend?”
“Ah?!” Tang Weiwei’s brain could not keep up with his way of thinking.
“My mommy is very beautiful and he is very handsome. I think they should get married.”
“Uh… Little bean, it’s better not to get caught up in wishful thinking.”
“Why? Do you think my mommy doesn’t match him?”
“No, no… That isn’t what I meant. I’m saying that he’s not from the same world as us.”
“Then what kind of world is he from? Mars?”
Tang Weiwei wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry. She had no choice but to explain, “I’m talking about the world that we’re living in now! It’s divided into two classes: the rich and the poor. At the same time, there are those from the upper echelon of society and those from the ordinary social class. He is at the top of the hierarchy and we’re just regular people, got it?”
The little boy blinked. He did not really understand the various ranks that adults have. He only knew one thing, he was interested in the man in the photo.
“Aunt Tang, what’s his name?”
“He’s called Gong Yexiao.”
“Gong Yexiao…” The little boy repeated to himself. Then he confidently said, “I think he could become my mommy’s boyfriend.”
