Chapter 330 – My Dear Son
The man who walked down from the second floor wore completely black clothes, while the folded fan was placed at his collar.
Nobody recognized the man in front of them, nor did they know who was the “son” that he was referring to.
Only Ye Zichen…
When he raised his head, he looked at the man in front of him in shock, while his hands trembled.
“What are you thinking? Aren’t you happy to see your father?” the man slowly walked towards Ye Zichen.
Gou Yuzhan and Gu Tian, who were both chasing the crowd in the room, also stopped…
“That uncle looks so similar to Ye Zichen,” Gou Yuzhan bumped Gu Tian’s shoulder.
“Indeed,” Gu Tian nodded.
“Ye Zichen!” Lu Lu prodded Ye Zichen.
Only then did he return to his senses, while he continued to stare at the man in front of him, “You…”
“Call me dad. Did Gu Rong not even teach you the most basic of manners?” the man maintained his smile.
“Gu Rong,” Gu Tian, who was standing behind Ye Zichen was completely shocked. He looked at the man in front of him with surprise.
The man smiled faintly as if he felt Gu Tian’s gaze, “Someone from the Gu family is actually here. Why do you have that expression? Could it be that you’re very shocked to hear Gu Rong’s name? Yes, you made no mistake. I’m talking about the original Young Lady of the Gu family, Gu Rong.”
Gu Tian was completely dumbfounded.
That was a name he had only seen in the family tree, but it was a name which was crossed out by a red line.
He had once asked his father why her name was crossed out.
The reply his father had given him was…
That person was exiled from the Gu family.
Even now, he could still remember the wry smile on his father’s face when he gave the answer.
Although Gu Tian was shocked, Ye Zichen was even more so.
He had always thought that his father was someone from the Gu family, but… Why was it mother?
Then, the man in front of me…
“Why do you have this sort of expression!” the man smiled. “Could it be that you’re shocked from seeing your father? That makes sense. You’ve never ever seen me, so it is natural for you to be shocked from seeing me now. But… I… extremely dislike your current expression.”
What the hell!
What is this man in front of me saying?
Is he really my father? Why don’t I feel any hint of intimacy from him? From the very beginning, the smile on his face was merely a meaningful one.
It was as if I’m not his son at all, and am merely a joke.
You’re saying that this androgynous man is my father!? What a joke!
“I’m talking to you, my good son.”
The man suddenly raised his hand. Ye Zichen, who was several meters away from him, felt as if someone was strangling him before he was lifted into the air.
“You really are the same as Gu Rong. I… really don’t like your expression.”
“Ugh…” Ye Zichen grabbed onto the space in front of his neck tightly, as he tiptoed, and revealed a pain-filled expression.
The man flung his arm with force, causing Ye Zichen to be swung to the corner of the room.
Everyone ran towards the corner of the room, while Ye Zichen laid on the floor, while intensely coughing and grabbing his neck. Furthermore, they were even able to see a faint line of blood on the corner of his mouth.
“Are you… seeking death!?”
Lu Lu, who squatted on the floor, suddenly stood up. After that, her hair turned a light blue shade, and a ferocious wind begun to spread outwards with her at the center.
Within seconds, the wind mixed with ice and snow, turning the entire room into a white world.
Ye Zichen, who laid limply on the floor, stood up from the ground with Gu Tian and Hua Zhiru’s support. He limped over to Lu Lu, then patted her shoulders and shook his head.
“Are you alright?”
Lu Lu’s words were of a completely caring tone.
Ye Zichen smiled, then shook his head before wiping away the blood from the corner of his mouth.
Then, he brushed off the support of the people beside him, then walked towards the man a step at a time.
The man smiled towards Ye Zichen, who was walking towards him, as if he didn’t take the threat of Lu Lu seriously at all, “It seems like you have a lot to say to me?”
“Indeed, I had a lot to say to you before this,” Ye Zichen stopped ten centimeters away from the man.
They were of a similar height, and had a similar appearance.
At that moment, Ye Zichen felt like he was looking into a mirror.
“Then don’t you have anything you want to say now? My good son, you truly hurt dad’s heart,” the man squinted his eyes and mocked.
“Sad? My mom should be even more sad in comparison, right?”
“Her?” the man suddenly laughed. “Even if she is sad, it shouldn’t be because of me. Her sadness should be directed towards the family she was in. It was the Gu family that pushed her to me in exchange of a hundred years of stability. That’s all.”
“Hehe…” Ye Zichen smiled.
“I told you, I really hate your expression,” the man’s gaze suddenly turned dark. “You are furious and want to take revenge for your mother? My good son, you’re still too weak. Even if you want to take revenge, you should go and find your grandfather. If you don’t believe me, then go back and ask Gu Rong who is the person she hates most!”
“Is that so?” Ye Zichen smiled, while his gaze also turned sullen. “I don’t know who I’m supposed to blame. Nor do I want to open up mother’s past wounds. All I know is that… Right now, the person I hate most is you. That is enough!”
Ye Zichen clenched his fist while his hands glittered.
He swung his fist at the man’s face. Since the two of them stood too close to one another, the man was unable to evade in time, and had to take the brunt of Ye Zichen’s punch.
Ye Zichen’s shoulders trembled after swinging the first.
His heart was already filled with an indescribable anger.
He doesn’t know about the past, but from the words that the man had said, and the man’s anger-inducing looks…
Ye Zichen could be sure that, he… let Ye Rong down.
“My good son, you’re not obedient at all. It is always the father beating the son, since when was the son allowed to hit the father?”
The man frowned. He swiped his finger over the corner of his mouth, then, while he saw the redness on his fingers…
“And I’m bleeding. This truly is outrageous!”
All of a sudden, a suffocating aura of spiritual energy radiated out from the man.
“Then let me act out my duty as the father!”
