I Became Popular in the Entertainment Industry Thanks To Doting - chapter 40
Gu Junzhu cleared his throat with a cough, “Ahem…”.
He looked sideways at Ye Xingli and Ye Xingbei, “Xiao Li, Bei Bei. I’ve made a reservation at a hotel. Let’s bring Xiao Shu to have a reunion dinner together with us.”
Little Ye Xingbei looked at Gu Junzhu, then he looked at Ye Xingbei and Ye Xingli. When his face grew taut, there was finally that feel of the tiny intellectual Gu Junzhu had imagined of him previously. “Dad, you and Mommy are a couple, so isn’t Mommy’s older brother your older brother too? Why do you call Young Uncle ‘Xiao Li’? Shouldn’t you call Young Uncle ‘Second Brother’ instead?”
Ye Xingli, “That’s right! You should also— ”
Ye Xingli’s eyes lit up and he twisted his head to look at Gu Junzhu in an instant. He was about to tell Gu Junzhu that since he was a couple with his younger sister, he should call him Second Brother—the same way that his sister did.
But when his gaze clashed with Gu Junzhu’s in mid-air, he immediately admitted defeat.
Swallowing his annoyance down his throat with all his strength, he stroked little Ye Yiyang’s head as he suffered in silence, “Darling, your dad has a greater seniority to me because Young Uncle is generations younger than your Grandpa. That’s why it isn’t right to let your dad call Young Uncle ‘Second Brother’. It’s fine if he calls me by my name. Heh heh, it’s all right to call me by my name!”
Ye Xingbei, “…”
Second Brother, is it really okay for you to give up just like this?
But frankly speaking, this was the first time that Ye Xingbei came to realize how terrifying Gu Junzhu’s ‘combat strength’ was.
Before meeting Gu Junzhu, there was only one person who could force her second brother into submission in this world—that was her eldest brother!
Her second brother was defiant to the heavens, earth and other humans. Enjoying the thrill of mutiny, he would only become more and more rebellious as time passed by, instead of tiring himself out.
However, when he encountered Gu Junzhu, his ‘fire’ instantly snuffed out. He didn’t even dare to say the word “No”. This alone was enough proof to show how terrifying Gu Junzhu was!
She was starting to feel more and more certain that her agreement to let Gu Junzhu become her Xiao Shu’s father was the most brainless decision she had ever made in her life.
Sadly, the moment this lie was spoken aloud today, ‘the arrow had already left the bow’. She could no longer turn back.
She could only work hard to preserve this lie.
It would be best if she could maintain this lie until Xiao Shu became an adult!
Since both of them had no objection to Gu Junzhu’s suggestion, the latter carried Xiao Shu as he turned around with Ye Xingbei and walked towards his car.
Ye Xingli also left for the place where he had parked his car at.
Gu Chi helped Ye Xingbei to open the car doors so that she could enter the vehicle first.
As Gu Junzhu was about to bend down to seat himself in the car while carrying little Ye Yiyang, with his arms around Gu Junzhu’s neck, the boy asked him, “Dad, you still haven’t replied to my question yet! Can you scale a building with your bare hands?”
“…” Gu Junzhu’s foot slipped and he nearly dropped little Ye Yiyang from his arms.
Little Ye Yiyang, aren’t you a child genius?
Since you’re a child genius, didn’t you notice that I didn’t answer that question just now and proposed for us to go to dinner because I was trying to avoid the topic on purpose?
Why would he change the topic?
Wasn’t that just because… He didn’t know how to scale a building with his bare hands?
Even if he could do that, his subordinates wouldn’t dare to let him climb either!
As Old Master Gu’s only remaining son, if he dared to scale tall buildings with his bare hands, his subordinates would go and tear down that building!
Watching how Gu Junzhu was at a loss of words from her son’s questioning, Ye Xingbei was so amused within but she couldn’t not help to smooth things over for them, “Xiao Shu, your dad does psychological labor—the kind that uses his mouth and not his fists—so climbing tall buildings with his bare hands is not his forte.”
“Oh!” The little chap nodded his head very seriously and looked at Gu Junzhu with sparkling eyes. “I understand now. Dad is like Zhu Geliang in Romance of the Three Kingdoms; he plans war strategies that can decide the outcome of a battle from a thousand miles away! The job of climbing skyscrapers is for Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, and Zhao Yun. Dad simply needs to know how to arrange a double bluff strategy!”
