When people reached an older age, there would more or less always be something wrong with their health. Old Master Yi had suffered a lot when he was young, so now when he was old the normal toll of aging and the resurgence of his old injuries appeared at the same time.
Two years ago he had been hospitalized, a year ago he had been recovering in seclusion, so now monthly health check-ups were essential.
However, recently, Old Master Yi’s physical examinations have gradually revealed improved results and the doctor’s reports have become more and more optimistic about Old Master Yi’s condition.
“Sir, your health has improved a lot recently. This is due to the active treatment you have been receiving and your good mood, so try to keep things up in this manner.”
Mrs. Yi smiled and seemed at ease. “Director Zhao, I’m so relieved to hear you say that.”
“Mrs. Yi, you can rest assured that your father is recovering well. He will live a long life if he continues to maintain his physical and mental health.”
Old Master Yi said with a smile, “I don’t expect to live a long life. Now I just hope to see Yi Yang and Xinyi having children sooner, so that I can meet my great-grandson.”
“The relationship between that little couple is getting better and better, it shouldn’t be too long before you have a great-grandson.”
“I hope so.”
Director Zhao personally sent Mrs. Yi and Old Master Yi and their two assistants out of the office, as they left he made sure to warn Old Master Yi to pay attention to the door of the elevator.
“Okay, Director Zhao, I’ll remember everything. You go ahead. You don’t have to send us off.”
Director Zhao nodded and with a smile.
Old Master Yi smiled and sighed, “It’s all thanks to you and Xinyi that I’m getting better so quickly. Back then you didn’t want Yi Yang to marry Xinyi, what do you think now?”
“Look at you, why do you always like to dig up ancient history? That child Xinyi is really good. Before, I was wrong about her but you can rest assured that I will be good to her in the future. With me around, no one will be able to bully her. “
The elevator door opened.
In the elevator, there was a three-or four-year-old child boy with his head lowered in one corner.
Mrs. Yi and Old Master Yi were stunned to see a little boy alone in the elevator, they exchanged confused glances.
“Whose child is this? Why are you here alone?”
The child in the elevator slowly raised his head and his pair of big round eyes looked straight at the two of them. After seeing them, he snorted coldly, and turned his head away.
The two Yi elders stepped into the elevator.
The Old Master had always been soft-hearted towards children. It had been a long time since he saw such a cute young child, so he smiled curiously and said, “Child, why are you here alone?”
The child didn’t speak so Mrs. Yi asked, “Where are your parents?”
“My mother is upstairs,” the child’s voice was young and crisp, but because his attitude was not very good, somewhat ferocious even, it reduced his cuteness and made him look spoiled, “I am going to find my father.”
“Then where is your father?”
“My father works in a big company. I’m going to go find him and make him take responsibility for my mother.”
Mrs. Yi glanced at Old Master Yi.
“A child as young as you, do you even know what ‘take responsibility’ means? You should hurry up and go back to your mother. She must be worried sick about you. “
“I’m not going up back to her. I’m going to find my father. I’m going to ask him why he abandoned me and my mother all these years!”
The elevator stopped on the first floor and the doors opened.
Mrs. Yi supported the Old Master to walk outside and told one of their assistants, “Take this child to the reception desk and ask the nurse to help him find his mother.”
The assistant whispered, “Yes, ma’am.”, and tried to take the little boy’s hand.
But the little boy refused. He grabbed the handrail inside the elevator and refused to go to the reception desk with the assistant. “You let me go! I’m going to find my dad! I’m going to find Yi Yang and ask him why he abandoned my mother! “
Mrs. Yi and Old Master Yi, who had stepped out of the elevator door and were ready to leave to have a meal, paused.
Old Master Yi was the first to react. He asked the little boy, “Your father’s name is Yi Yang?”
Mrs. Yi frowned. “Dad, it should just be someone with the same name, right?”
“Yes! My father’s name is Yi Yang, he’s the president of the Yi Group!”
Despite the fact that the child was only three or four years old, his words were very clear and had no ambiguity at all.
The two assistants froze and looked over at Old Master Yi.
Old Master Yi’s face darkened. His look toward the child became a little less kind and a little more harsh.
“Child, who told you that your father is Yi Yang?”
“I heard it upstairs just now. My mother brought me to the hospital to take a paternity test and I heard the doctor say, ‘Yi Yang is the father!’ “
Old Master Yi frowned and his grip on his cane tightened.
Mrs. Yi looked worriedly at Old Master Yi’s face and asked the little boy, “Where did you come down from? Shall we take you back up?”
“No, I’m going to find my father. Don’t stop me!” The little boy seemed ready to directly rush outside.
“Let’s go find your mother first, then we can take you to find your father.” Old Master Yi’s face sank and he went back into the elevator.
Whether it was because the child was too young or because he was afraid, he hesitated to say which floor his mother was on.
The look on Old Master Yi’s face was grim and fierce so Mrs. Yi dared not speak.
The elevator slowly went up to the floor where paternity tests were taken. As soon as the elevator door opened there was a panicked woman standing at the door. When she saw the little boy in the elevator she quickly pulled him out of the elevator with tears in her eyes and then squatted down and hugged him into her arms.
“Tong Tong! Where have you been! Are you trying to scare your mother to death?”
Tong Tong spoke from within his crying mother’s arms. “I went to find my father and ask him why he abandoned you all these years.”
“What are you talking about?”
“I already heard everything. Don’t think that I’m just a child who doesn’t understand anything. The doctor said that the paternity test report was to find out who my father is. And I have a father, right?”
The woman gasped and was silent for a moment. Then she seemed to notice the man who had come out of the elevator behind her son, she looked up and wiped away her tears. Then she took Tong Tong by the hand and thanked Old Master Yi and others.
“This child is still young and acts naughty. Thank you for bringing him back.”
The furrow between Old Master Yi’s brows was getting deeper and deeper. “Are you Xu Weiyin?”
Xu Weiyin lowered her head and smiled faintly before answering, “I am.”
“This child said that his father is Yi Yang?”
Xu Weiyin looked stunned, she looked down at Tong Tong with warning in her eyes, then she regained her smile and said, “Don’t listen to a small child’s nonsense.”
“Mom, I’m not talking nonsense!” When Tong Tong saw that his mother wanted to call his words nonsense, how could he bear it? “I’m not a two-or three-year-old baby anymore. I heard everything clearly. Yi Yang is my father! And the paternity test is right there in your bag. I can see it!”
Xu Weiyin gave him a stern look.
Tong Tong lowered his head and reluctantly shut his mouth.
But the Yi elders standing on the side understood everything.
Xu Weiyin had brought this child into the hospital for a paternity test, and the subject of the paternity test was Yi Yang.
Old Master Yi suddenly held out his hand and said, “Let me see the paternity test.”
“Sir, you are…”
“I am Yi Yang’s grandfather.”
“I am Yi Yang’s mother.”
Xu Weiyin acted surprised and hurriedly stood up in front of the child. “So it turned out you were Mrs. Yi and Old Master Yi. You shouldn’t listen to what a small child says, you can’t take it seriously.”
“I’m not already so old that I’m muddled and confused. I know what I need to take seriously or not.” Old Master Yi had managed the Yi Group for many years so it was difficult to look directly into his eyes when he began to emit his silent pressure. “Give me the paternity test.”
Xu Weiyin seemed very hesitant.
“You should know, if I want to get the paternity test results, I don’t have to get it from your hands.”
Xu Weiyin bit her lower lip and then reluctantly took out the paternity test results from her bag and handed it over to Old Master Yi with a sunken face.
“Four years ago, before I went abroad, I was staying in the Hilton Hotel. But that night my friend sent me back to the wrong room and I ended up in Yi Yang’s room. I had drank too much and was drunk and Yi Yang was also drunk. My memories of what happened that night are unclear, I only found out what happened the next morning…” Xu Weiyin’s words trailed off and she seemed to find it difficult to keep speaking.
“…not long after I arrived abroad, I found out that I was pregnant.”
Old Master Yi gave her a casual look. “I more or less understand this matter. I’ll take this test with me first. I’ll look into the doctors who did this paternity test, if it’s a fake, you and those doctors will have to take care of yourself.”
With that said he turned to leave.
Xu Weiyin stopped him with an anxious look. “But what if Tong Tong is really Yi Yang’s child?”
Old Master Yi looked back at her and there was a trace of a sharp edge revealed in his eyes, his next words were thick with warning.
“I will contact you again soon. Until then, you and your child are not allowed to appear in front of Yi Yang or Xinyi, otherwise don’t blame me for not being polite!”
Mrs. Yi gave Xu Weiyin a gloomy look and then helped Old Master Yi to leave.
The elevator door slowly closed. Tong Tong looked up at Xu Weiyin and asked. “Mom, are they dad’s relatives?”
Xu Weiyin looked away from the closed elevator door and responded, “Yes, those are your father’s relatives. But at your dad’s house there is already a woman there, otherwise we could go to your dad’s house.”
“Who is that woman? Why won’t she let me go find my dad? Why is she so hateful?”
Xu Weiyin squatted down and touched Tong Tong’s tender little face before saying, “Tong Tong, don’t ask this. Mother will tell you when you grow up.”
Tong Tong looked at Xu Weiyin and gave her a trusting nod.
Meanwhile, inside the elevator, no one dared to speak.
