In the gap while Yi Yang was feeling surprised, Xu Xinyi had already figured out how to explain Xu Weiyin’s son clearly.
She bowed her head, and her face was full of grief and indignation, as if she had endured a terrible humiliation. “Grandpa, I know that you and mother have been hoping that I can have a baby for Yi Yang earlier, but Yi Yang and I have been married for two years and there has been no movement. You must be very disappointed in me.”
“What are you thinking about when you just got back? If there are no children, there will be no children. You are still young. Take your time. Your grandpa is fine, there is no hurry.”
“No, Grandpa, Yi Yang, he has a son.”
“Has a son?” The Yi elders looked at each other.
Outside the house, Yi Yang clenched his teeth, and endured a bitter taste rising in his chest.
His first reaction was that it must be Han Xiao or Jiang Nian.
When filming in the Film City, only those two people were likely to come into contact with Xu Xinyi.
This Xu Xinyi, how dare she!
A voice of great joy came from the house, “Xinyi, are you pregnant?”
Old Master Yi and Mrs. Yi set their eyes on Xu Xinyi’s flat belly.
Mrs. Yi took her by the hand and asked a series of questions, “How many months has it been? When did you get pregnant? Did you have an examination? What did the doctor say? Is the child healthy?”
“Yes, what did the doctor say?” Old Master Yi’s face was beaming. But after thinking about it, he felt it was inappropriate to only just ask. “No, Xinyi. Grandpa will accompany you to the hospital tomorrow. We’ll check it carefully.”
Xu Xinyi’s words, which she had been readying in her heart for a long time, were choked and held back by the sudden onslaught of words from the Yi elders.
“No. Grandpa, I…”
“By the way, dad, since Xinyi is pregnant, the family food will have to be changed. Pregnant women have to avoid certain foods, you see.”
“Don’t worry about me, this old man could even be a vegetarian!”
Xu Xinyi got up in a panic, “Grandpa, mom, I’m not. I’m not. Listen to me!”
“Sit down quickly. You have to be careful when you are pregnant.” Mrs. Yi, who was immersed in joy, shouted, “Butler Chen, please come here. I have something to tell you.”
“Wait!” Seeing that Mrs. Yi was going to call Butler Chen and tell the whole world, Xu Xinyi hurriedly spoke in a loud voice, “Who said I was pregnant?”
There was a silence in the living room.
“Didn’t you just say you were pregnant with Yi Yang’s child? Oh, you child, don’t be embarrassed. “
–“I’m talking about Yi Yang’s illegitimate child outside. How could I be pregnant with the son of the dog man, Yi Yang?”
Blue veins bulged on Yi Yang’s forehead and his first reaction was that Xu Xinyi was trying to start playing her tricks again.
He took two quick strides into the living room.
“Grandpa, mom, I’m back.”
The two people who were about to ask Xu Xinyi about the child were interrupted by Yi Yang’s return.
“Back?” Mrs. Yi was stunned for a moment. She sighed and said, “Come here and ask Xinyi what’s going on!”
Yi Yang approached quietly, “What’s the matter?”
Xu Xinyi looked up at him, and her eyes gradually showed the color of aggrievement.
“Yi Yang, I found something out today. I want to ask you if it’s true.”
“What is it?”
“You… outside… aren’t you…” Xu Xinyi suddenly became agitated, as if it was really difficult for her to say the next words. She suddenly cried and hugged Old Master Yi. She gave an earth-shaking cry, “Grandpa!”
“What, what’s the matter?” Old Master Yi looked at Yi Yang harshly.
–“Come on, dog man, ask me what’s wrong?!”
–“You have illegitimate children running around out there. How dare you stand in front of me?”
Yi Yang just stood there frozen and he didn’t ask.
“Yi Yang, you tell me!”
“Grandpa, I don’t know what happened.”
Xu Xinyi sobbed up from Old Master Yi’s arms and looked at Yi Yang with tearful eyes. “Are you sure you don’t know anything?”
Yi Yang’s eyes narrowed slightly.
“I went to see someone today, and she said that her child was… um…”
Before Xu Xinyi had time to say her lies, Yi Yang quickly put his hands over her mouth and grabbed her waist. “Grandpa, mom, Xinyi and I will go up first.”
Xu Xinyi wanted to speak, but she was powerless. Her mouth was tightly covered by Yi Yang, and she could only make a vague whining sound.
“Yi Yang, you…”
Without saying another word, Yi Yang covered her mouth and dragged Xu Xinyi upstairs.
Xu Xinyi tried to swing her fists and feet but was mercilessly suppressed.
–“Ah~ Ah~ Ah~, what a great opportunity wasted! Sure enough! The dog man was prepared!”
–“This pisses me off! Dog man! Dog man!”
–“Pretty? Dog man, do you think I’m pretty!”
At the doorway on the third floor, Xu Xinyi grabbed the door frame with both hands and refused to enter.
Without saying a word, Yi Yang slung her over his shoulder and entered the room, and her hand tightly gripping the door frame could not resist the strong pull. They disappeared into the room leaving only Xu Xinyi’s angry cry: “Grandpa! Yi Yang has an illegitimate child!”
With the six words ‘Yi Yang has an illegitimate child’, the door slammed shut only leaving the cry resounded out throughout the empty corridor.
Yi Yang threw Xu Xinyi on the bed and stood at the end of the bed. He looked at her with heavy eyes, but his face was very calm.
On the other hand, Xu Xinyi, because she had struggled from the first floor to the third floor, her hair was messy and she was out of breath. It took a long time for her to recover.
“What did you just say?”
A cold and unfluctuating voice sounded. Xu Xinyi took a quick breath and swallowed, then propped herself up with her elbows.
He was the one with a guilty conscience.
Why wasn’t he acting guilty?
There were only the two of them in the room and the power between them was so different. What if this son of a bitch really wanted to shut her up forever? Xu Xinyi felt a bit afraid.
“Didn’t you hear me?”
“I’m afraid I heard it wrong, so I want to hear you say it again.”
Xu Xinyi was very timid. Her hands were shaking. “Today I found out you have an illegitimate child out there. The child is already three years old!”
“Mine? An illegitimate child?”
“Yes! Yi Yang, are you happy? You have a son.”
“Whose is it?”
“I asked who the mother was.”
On hearing this, Xu Xinyi seemed to lose all of her strength. She looked sadly at Yi Yang. “Do you admit it? Is that child really yours?”
–“I knew it! The child must be Yi Yang’s! “
–“Who could solve it! Who else but me?! The unsolved mystery that has plagued countless people has now been solved by me so easily!”
–“From today on, I am Xinyi Holmes!”
Yi Yang was so angry that he had a headache. He frowned and warned her, “Xu Xinyi, don’t create a child for me out of nothing. Be clear!”
Xu Xinyi said tearfully, “Xu Weiyin, do you remember now?”
Yi Yang tried to search his mind for the name Xu Weiyin.
“I know that Xu Weiyin is your college classmate, and you two have been in love with each other for a long time. Later, because of a sudden change, she was pregnant with your child and went abroad. Now she has returned to China with the child between you and her. Yi Yang, are you going to abandon me for that mother and son?” Xu Xinyi performed masterfully, she spoke with a tone of sadness and anxiety and her eyes were misty with tears.
Yi Yang had an indescribable expression as he looked at Xu Xinyi’s emotional performance.
“Sudden change? What happened?”
“…” How could she know what the change was?
The author had just mentioned it offhandedly without ever writing a single stroke to explain.
“Why didn’t I know she was pregnant with my child?”
Xu Xinyi was overwhelmed with grief and indignation. “Today I went to her. I asked her if the child was yours, and she admitted it! Besides, the child looks exactly like you. You two are like two peas in a pod.”
Speaking to this point, Xu Xinyi suddenly seemed as if she was ready to completely burn her bridges here and now. She spoke in a way that was determined and unafraid. “Yi Yang, you and I have been married for two years! Xu Weiyin, even if she has your child, she is the real third party! I won’t allow her to interfere in our marriage, even with a child!”
When Yi Yang did not speak, she endured the humiliation, then went to Yi Yang and clung to his sleeve humbly. “Yi Yang, you can’t divorce me for Xu Weiyin and her child. Even if you liked her before, she is still a third party. Her child is illegitimate and will never be recognized.”
Seeing that Yi Yang still did not speak, Xu Xinyi continued: “If… If you can’t bear to let your child live outside, I can let him in for you. But not Xu Weiyin! I will never allow her to enter the Yi household!”
— “Between a wife he has no feelings for on one side and a lover with a son on the other, a man should know how to choose!”
–“Soon Yi Yang will go to see Xu Weiyin. Those two will look back on their past and cry bitterly. But then when they see their clever and sensible son, I’m afraid their hearts will melt.”
–“I’m a little excited just thinking about it!”
Having heard so much, Yi Yang was only interested in when Xu Xinyi said that the child looked exactly like him.
“Do you have a picture of the child? Let me see.”
Xu Xinyi showed him the picture with an aggrieved face.
Yi Yang laughed angrily the moment he saw the picture.
Is this what Xu Xinyi meant by, ‘The child looks exactly like you’?
Like two peas in a pod?
“Xu Xinyi, when did you go blind? Just where do we look the same?”
“Of course, you might feel doubtful when you look at yourself. But as a bystander, I can look at it objectively and rationally, and, of course, I can see it instantly.”
–“It doesn’t matter whether they look alike or not. The important thing is to spread the idea. Once it has been said enough and people hear it all the time they will eventually be brainwashed into believing.”
—“What’s more, Xu Weiyin will never take the child for a paternity test, so no one will know whose child it really is.”
–“Even Xu Weiyin probably doesn’t even know.”
“I won’t run away from the problem, Yi Yang, so let me ask you, how do you want to deal with this?”
What does this have to do with me? Yi Yang thought but did not say. Instead, he looked meaningfully at Xu Xinyi, “What do you want to do about it?”
And threw the problem back to Xu Xinyi.
Xu Xinyi quickly pulled out an arrogant attitude, she sounded extremely sinister and vicious, “I can’t accept the existence of Xu Weiyin. If you don’t want to make a clean break with her, then I’ll tell grandpa about it…”
Yi Yang spoke. “Grandpa likes you very much. He won’t give up on you because of an illegitimate child.”
Xu Xinyi paused.
–“The dog man seems to have a point.”
–“Grandpa is a very traditional man. Wouldn’t it be over if this forced me to have a baby with Yi Yang even earlier because of this?”
–“No, I can’t worry about grandpa. I’ll deal with him some other time. I must not act rashly.”
“Grandpa is not in good health. So I won’t tell him about this in advance. But that Xu Weiyin, I will never let her go! Doesn’t she want to go into the entertainment industry? I will make sure that there will be no way for her! I will find someone to smear her name! She will never have a chance to make a comeback! I’ll have her flee from City A with her child and never show up in front of me again!”
“But you don’t have that much influence in the entertainment industry. You don’t have the power to cover the sky with one hand. And now that Xu Weiyin has returned home after four years she must have already made some arrangements.”
Xu Xinyi paused and looked at him with a tearful face. “Husband, do you like her so much? Have you been defending her all along, or are you just planning to help her later?”
“I’m just making an objective analysis from the point of view of a bystander. Not to mention that the idea you mentioned is a temporary cure rather than a permanent one. But I can teach you what to do.”
Xu Xinyi: “?”
“Aren’t you worried about Xu Weiyin taking your spot?” Yi Yang approached her step by step. “As long as you have a son, you won’t have to worry about Xu Weiyin anymore.”
Xu Xinyi looked dazed.
–“A son? Whose child should I be carrying?”
–“My future husband is still a child in kindergarten. Who will I have a baby with?”
Yi Yang was shocked.
“Xu Xinyi! ! !”
