I Became Popular in the Entertainment Industry Thanks To Doting - chapter 39
There had been many changes in the family. He saw how his father had to watch his children die before himself many times. Used to the parting of life and death, he had already grown accustomed to the existence of life, death and worldly affairs. As long as he didn’t take anything seriously, he wouldn’t care about it either.
No matter whether it was his pretense as a couple with Ye Xingbei or his suggestion to become a father to Ye Yiyang, he had mentioned it casually due to a sudden impulse. Since he felt that passing his days like these was boring—why not simply play around as he pleased? If it was interesting, then he would keep on doing it, but if it became dull, they could just part without any hard feelings
But at this moment, being stared at with such a clean and adoring gaze by the little chap, a rash and heroic impulse sprouted out of him for no reason.
He wanted to protect the innocent admiration in this child’s eyes.
He wanted to let this child continue to look at him with this kind of gaze forever.
He hoped that this child would never see through this shoddy lie of his today; he hoped to let this child live forever within the lies that he had created—growing up happily and contentedly!
While carrying this child, he felt that he somewhat lost his sense of reasoning.
No wonder people liked children.
It turned out that innocent and adorable children could easily purify the hearts of people.
In the past, he hated little brats; he wasn’t even willing to hug the children of his friends and relatives.
However, he had truly carried this child and he had been ‘purified’ by him within a few minutes.
This kind of thing probably depends on… How attractive this child was, right?
This child in his arms was simply too good-looking—red lips, white teeth, big eyes, long eyelashes and jade-white face that looked like it would break easily by blowing on it. His delicate facial features were so beautiful like a jade doll in a painting.
The love of beauty exists in everyone.
Few people would dislike such a beautiful child.
He now heavily suspected that Head Director Ye was not as kind and noble as he had previously thought.
She had most likely taken this child into her care that year because she saw that he was simply too adorable. Ye Xingbei must’ve been won over by his charm. Hence, she didn’t make a fuss about Bai Mengluan’s manipulation and adopted this child!
Little Ye Yiyang extended his two squishy hands and clasped Gu Junzhu’s face. His soft voice was sweet and tender, “Dad, you’re so handsome!”
Gu Junzhu felt the boy’s tiny face with his hand. “Baby Xiao Shu is very handsome too!”
Upon hearing Dad call him ‘baby’, little Ye Yiyang’s eyes curved from smiling. Then, he cupped his own face while asking, “Does Dad like Xiao Shu?”
Gu Junzhu replied, “Of course, I do!”
It was human instinct to like smart and pretty children for the sake of successful reproduction.
If someone didn’t like a beautiful and clever child like Xiao Shumiao, that person must not be human!
Little Ye Yiyang was overjoyed. “Dad, Mommy said that you didn’t call Xiao Shu and her because Dad’s workplace was very strict—they didn’t allow you to make a phone call to your family!”
“Mommy was right!” Gu Junzhu glanced at Ye Xingbei. He thought about how she must’ve put a lot of thought into her lies, given how she had cooked up an unusual vocation for Xiao Shu’s non-existent father.
Indeed, there were several professions which didn’t allow people to contact their family members while they were in the middle of their job.
Little Ye Yiyang quickly became talkative. A switch seemed to have been turned on inside of him as he started to ask a hundred thousand ‘whys’ in his chatterbox mode. “Dad, is your workplace very exhausting?”
“Yes, it is hard!” Nodding his head, he smiled in reply, “But, it’s very fulfilling and meaningful.”
“Dad, are the uncles who work with you especially awesome? Can they climb large buildings with their bare hands like Spiderman?”
Gu Junzhu, “… They are slightly lacking compared to Spiderman but with the help of specialized equipment, they can accomplish it indeed.”
Didn’t Spiderman need to use spiderwebs too? Are ordinary people not allowed to use ropes instead of spider webs?
“Then, Dad… Can you scale a building with your bare hands?”
