PDSA Chapter 26

Chapter 26: The Child is Mine

“Then, what about daddy? Will he go home together with us?” The little boy’s pink lips formed a pout as he asked pitifully.

Cheng Liyue wanted to direct a resentful glare at the handsome man. But in front of her son, she didn’t want to act like a shrew. She gave him a tight-lipped smile and coaxed, “He’s very busy. He has to manage such a big company. He doesn’t have the time to come home with us.”

“Mommy, don’t worry, I’ve checked. Daddy ranks first on the world’s rich list and is able to deal with all kinds of insubordination. Nobody will dare to bully you again.” The little boy beamed.

Cheng Liyue, “…”

“Son, why don’t you go out first to find Aunt Yan to play with? Daddy wants to have a nice long chat with your mommy.” Gong Yexiao gently persuaded, intending to send the little boy away.

Since the next topic was not suitable for him to hear.

The little fellow was also very perceptive. It seems that daddy and mommy were going to discuss passion and talk about love[1]. So, his little light-bulb[2] self should quickly leave!

“Alright. Daddy, mommy, you guys mustn’t quarrel! You guys have to be kind and love each other[3], okay?” The little boy clambered down from his father’s arms and lifted his little face to advise them.

The faces of the two adults froze for a moment. The little boy then scampered off. At the door, Yan Yang saw that he had come out and knew at once that the president had some matters to deal with. She quickly took the little boy to her office and got him some toys to amuse him.

As soon as the little boy left, the atmosphere in the room became very tense, dismal, and even menacing and oppressive.

Cheng Liyue unconsciously balled her hands into fists. Raising her head to look at the intimidating man in front of her, she forced out her words, “What do you want to talk to me about?”

Gong Yexiao was, however, relaxed. With his arms crossed in a regal posture, he cast her a sidelong glance. “Of course, it’s to discuss matters pertaining to our son.”

“Xiao Ze is not your son. He is mine. And mine alone.” Cheng Liyue retorted swiftly. Four years ago, this jerk had slept with her and she hadn’t made a fuss about this. Now, he even planned to snatch her son away? Not a chance.

Gong Yexiao curled his lip. “Then tell me, how did you manage to conceive a child all by yourself? Four years ago, if my seed had not been sown in you[4], where would your son spring up from?”

Cheng Liyue was about to go mad. Her pretty face flushed blood red. She was furious to the point where she wanted to murder him. Like a lioness which had been provoked, she exploded in rage, “You dare to bring up the events that had happened four years ago, you bastard, you beast in human clothing…”[5]

Gong Yexiao’s countenance instantly turned glacial as he shot her an angry glare. “Woman, be more courteous in your speech. The events that had happened four years ago, I haven’t forgotten. Did you think it was me who had made the first move? You had clearly been very active in the coupling. If I hadn’t been plotted against, do you think I could stand swallowing[6] someone like you?

Cheng Liyue was stupefied. This man had taken advantage of her but was pretending otherwise[7]. He had eaten it dry and had even wiped it clean[8] and still gave her the cold shoulder? How was there such a pathetic excuse for a man in this world?

“Couldn’t stand swallowing it and yet you still had it eaten?” Cheng Liyue gnashed her teeth and countered.

Gong Yexiao’s face contorted with rage. He let out a scoff. “I’m not going to pursue the matters that had happened four years ago. But from this day on, my son must be handed to me.”

Cheng Liyue flew into a temper. “Don’t hold your breath. I was the one who had given birth to him. I was the one who raised him. He is mine. Don’t even think of taking him away from me.”

“Do you think the child of my Gong family will be brought up by a mother like you?” Gong Yexiao was now clear about her character. Not only was this woman wild, her mouth was also full of profanities. The incident from four years ago had also worsened his impression of her. A promiscuous woman like her didn’t deserve to have his son.

“My character is of no concern to you. And my son’s surname is Cheng. He’s called Cheng Yuze. He has absolutely no relationship with your Gong family.” Cheng Liyue did not yield an inch of ground[9].

    1. ME TOO LIKE WTAF he doesn’t even consider the possibility of having raped her or the possibility of her having been drugged too

      if it wasn’t already obvious enough that she wants nothing to do with him. if she really was a golddigger she would have run to him all those years ago when little Yuze’s face first started to resemble Gong trash ML UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH but ITS SO OBVIOUS she wants nothing to do with him and she’d make much less of a “profit” that way

    2. I KNOW RIGHT!!!
      SHE DOESNT EVEN WANT MONEY YOU SHIT FOR BRAINS HOLY F**K.

      I seriously thought the overbearing kind of MCS were smart and knew how to handle things.

      Like what the actual f**k.
      It’s been 5 years already. Holy shit.
      If I was her, I’d just run away again if he tried to do anything.
      Like holy shit.
      I ran once for myself.
      Don’t think I won’t run for my son again.
      Like holy shit.
      These types of guys Are so f**king infuriating.
      Thinking they have the power and all the shit.

      Gods.

      I want a story like this, where our MC knows some fighting skills. Gods. Watching her beat up this kind of ML, and in the end, watching him beg her to be nice and kind.
      Ah.
      The sweet injustice.

    3. I would also prefer to binge read this instead of having to calmly back away form my laptop to prevent myself from breaking the keys and throwing the whole thing across the room in my frustration.

      translator-sama, do you know what chapter the ML at least starts treating her with a little respect? I don’t mean when they start falling in love with each other but when ML starts to show some BASIC RESPECT

      that would be nice I mean she raised his son ALL BY HERSELF and he has no right to take him back no matter what he says/does but if you don’t know which chapter or you don’t want to say to avoid spoilers then don’t mind me as I just hyperventilate due to my anger hahaha

    5. There are two sides to every story.

      Imagine having being drugged because you’re the victim of someone else’s schemes, and then finding out that you actually have a kid as a result of that night. Also, bear in mind, GYX doesn’t even know who CLY is or what her motives are. His kid shows up in his office all by himself. And he suddenly finds out that he’s a father. It’s pretty reasonable of him to want to have custody of his own child. But yeah, he could have gone about it in a more civilized way by actually having a proper discussion with CLY.

      Anyways, don’t hate on GYX just yet. He might be an overbearing/tyrannical man (now) but he treats the little bun exceptionally well. He gets an A+ in childcare. 😛

    6. I understand his point clearly. But he could have investigated the mother? With the means at his disposal he chooses not to. And he even had his son’s resume. And didn’t even consider that.

      Yes. He was drunk. And all this other crap.
      But, he’s not being an adult about this. He’s being a huge man child throwing a tantrum.

      Of course CLY is angry. He basically kidnapped her son. He didn’t even ask for permission. And that’s illegal by all means. Everything he’s done so far is by force.

      Also. Thanks for the chapter.

      And so far, I know he’s sincere towards his child. But, even reading it. It’ll just make me pissed seeing his two faced self.
      Oh little bean.
      Wherefore art thou my little bean.
      Gods. I need your healing powers.
      The only saving grace for me to continue this novel.
      My cute little bean.

    7. same I can see that he will be a great father but like hoshi said, he had every means to investigate CLY. HE was purely unreasonable in just completely holding her in contempt when its glaringly obvious that she doesn’t care for his wealth or his looks–which are the only reason ppl want to climb his bed in the first place. She makes it SO OBVIOUS TOO but he ignores it and he even disregarded how she low-key suggested that she also hadn’t been there that night willingly.

      Honestly, this kind of story I can see the kid living a happy life, but their couple growth will probably take the entire 1400 chapters that the author currently has released with the ML’s unreasonable temperament. I appreciate good dads, but bad husbands ruin the good dad part and brings that 50% right back down to 0%. We don’t know much about the FL or the ML right now, but to me both of them are great parents hands down. they just need to take the time to sit down and talk about that night which I already know they wont because plot. Hell, I’m betting ML won’t even find out the truth until like 100-200 chapters in or something. Even Lu Tingxiao took almost 1800 chapters to find out but LTX is the ML of MLs and in my heart no one could compete with him so I guess comparing GYX with LTX is a bit harsh. Nevertheless, their circumstances are quite similar albeit with the difference being who raised the child. Who knows, if NX had raised little treasure instead, maybe LTX would be a carbon copy of GYX. Then again, it wouldn’t matter still, since NX is a bit OP (by a bit I mean SUPER OP) so this story is hopefully more realistic than HM with CLY’s limitations and weaknesses.

      YEs, there are two sides to the story. He thinks he was raped by her, and she thinks she was raped by him. I agree that they are both unreasonable here, but that’s probably where he should go in and check her info and background because he has the power to do so. On the other hand, she doesn’t. But i do admit that if she took the time as well to just do some basic research on him too, the fact that he’s the wealthiest man in the country would make it more obvious that he didn’t intend for that night to happen since he has all the women he can get at his beck and call so it was obvious he was drugged.

      But they probably wont because like i said, plot. If they just took the time to talk or just think rationally like normal people then I think this story could be shortened from 1400+ chapters to 500 easily. But these chinese authors love these long a$$ novels. not complaining though. Just feeling sad for your fingers as the translator and more grateful that you are willing to translate at all so I can read haha

    8. Yep. And the ML here is even looking down on her for her current aggressive behavior.

      Like hello.
      YOU JUST F**KING KIDNAPPED HER CHILD AND DIDNT EVEN TELL HER OR ASK FOR HER GUARDIAN’s PERMISSION.
      YOU LEGIT JUST TOOK Him!! Like she has reason to be currently upset and aggressive. Like holy shit. Smart guy am I right? Thinks they are hotshit
