PDSA Chapter 37

Cheng Liyue’s eyes widened. “I… I didn’t bring any clothes. I won’t be taking a bath.”

“Mommy, that wouldn’t be hygienic. You must take a bath!” The little boy immediately said.

“I’ll get some clothes for you.” After saying that, the corners of Gong Yexiao’s mouth rose into a wicked smile. He got up and left the room. If there were spare clothes for kids, naturally there would also be women’s clothes.

Cheng Liyue frowned. Where did he bring out all these clothes from?

After a while, he came in with three sets of nightwear with different styles. But the one thing that all three sets had in common was their lack of fabric. Tossing them on the bed, he said, “Take your pick.”

Looking at the skimpy garments, a blush stained her face in an instant. Gritting her teeth, she shook her head and said, “No thanks.”

“If you refuse to take a bath, then you’re not allowed on my bed.”

“If it wasn’t for my son, who would want to be on your bed?”

“It’s the women who want to.” Gong Yexiao gave her a cold smile.

Using his words against him, Cheng Liyue instructed her son, “Son, look at your father’s messy, personal life. You must not be like him in the future.”

Gong Yexiao’s handsome face darkened slightly. He looked at the little boy and straightened things out, “Don’t pay any heed to what your mommy is saying. So far, your mommy is the only person I’ve ever slept with.”

Cheng Liyue was stunned for a few seconds. How was that even possible?

Blinking his eyes, the little boy asked, “Really? Daddy, you’ve only ever slept with mommy?”

“Yes, she’s the only one I’ve slept with.” Gong Yexiao affirmed.

Cheng Liyue was about to go crazy. Could this man not talk about such serious matters regarding his personal life with his son? Sooner or later, he was bound to be a bad influence on her son.

“Enough. This discussion ends here. Stop talking about it.” Cheng Liyue immediately intervened. If this discussion were to go on, she would have to dig herself a hole.

Of course she was not as gullible as her son. How could she have been the only person he had slept with all these years? A man of his status, even if he did not make the first move, there would be countless women who would volunteer to take him to bed.

Men were creatures who only think with their head down south. How could he not be one of them?

“Mommy, go take a bath! In a while, we’ll all be sleeping on daddy’s big bed!” The little boy was jumping up and down on it, as if he was bouncing on a trampoline.

Looking at the three sets of women’s nightwear, she frowned and said in disgust, “I won’t wear clothes that have been worn by another woman.”

Wrinkling his forehead, Gong Yexiao said. “These clothes have not been worn yet.”

“Then I won’t wear it either.” Cheng Liyue scrunched her face. Why should she put on such a flimsy nightgown for him to see?

The man gave her a sardonic smile. “You dare not wear it, because you don’t have the figure for it.”

“I am in good shape!”

“Then just put it on.”

“I…” Cheng Liyue discovered that she had been led by the nose and was now trapped.

As soon as she looked up, she caught sight of the roguish look in his jet-black eyes.

She was no longer a girl on the cusp of womanhood, and had even given birth to a child. She had abandoned any trace of shyness ever since she had started breastfeeding. At this moment, she had been provoked. Looking down at the nightgowns, she chose a wine-red spaghetti strap nightdress and said, “I’ll wear it. Who’s afraid of whom?[1]”

Arching his brow, the ends of the man’s lips rose into a smug smile: then he’ll wait and see.

Cheng Liyue entered the bathroom with the nightgown in her hands and shut the door.

The little boy’s delicate and tender arms hugged Gong Yexiao’s neck from behind and said with a pout, “Daddy, can you stop arguing with mommy? Can you give in to mommy?”

Turning his head, Gong Yexiao looked at the little fellow who was feeling sorry for his mother. His gaze softened, and promised, “Okay, I’ll give in to her.”

“You have to promise that you must love her as much as I do.” The little boy voiced out another request.

There was a slight frown on Gong Yexiao’s face. The cleverness of this little fellow had really been passed down to him. The little boy was filled with all sorts of ideas at just a tender age.

“Alright, I promise.” Gong Yexiao gave him a nod.


Chapter 37: Being Provoked



[1] 谁怕谁  = who’s afraid of whom? = rhetorical question. Used when the maker of the statement wants to show that they’re not afraid of the person to whom they’re speaking to… usually some type of challenge is involved… sort of like saying ‘bring it on!’

  1. Hate her more and more every god damn chapter
    Shes a horrible mother who cant bring herself to discipline her child in the slightest, shes a complete doormat and a complete moron


    1. I get what your saying but, I still feel thats not an excuse. Because then how do we draw the line between what is forced on someone and what isnt….and if she wants to be pushed then she should be more cognitively aware of it. The way the author is choosin to portray their interaction shares the message that if someone is pushing you to do something then it is okay. That as long as you have a physical reaction then its okay. But thats not the case. When were not clear on boundaries and people show a blatant disrespect for it and we still justify it. Then the lines between what is rape and such becomes blurred and hard to tell. Because, for example, not all victims of rape fight back. A large portion don’t b/c they are to scared to. Its called freezing up….However I don’t hate the male lead. I just don’t think he has a complete idea of what is morally correct. Which I believe is blamed on his upbringing and being super duper rich. I just think the MC is really hypocritical and not super strong. Her thought process goes one way and she is doing the exact opposite. She isn’t being honest with herself and that I believe is hypercritical/weak-minded.She is also not approaching the problem smartly or in a way that promotes her best interest.


    2. I agree with you entirely. It’s obvious the guy has vulgar ulterior motives.

      But I also see her point. She’s a grown woman. Not some pure high schooler. She isn’t embarrsssd by wearing them and just took a whatever method.

      Though I still hate how she didn’t put more reason into her words. Just silently took it.

      Even the little boy noticed his father is bullying his mother.


  2. Thanks for the chapter. I’m so glad the boy’s manipulations aren’t limited to his mom. It was starting to feel one-sided and irritating.
