Childish Flower - Chapter 29
This question is really a bit sharp and tricky. Mu Jin has a delicate and sensitive mind, Gao Tian Chen didn’t know how to answer for a while. After experiencing so much, he couldn’t let go of the other party anymore since long ago.
“Xiao Jin, don’t think too much. You are my only one.” Stopping the wheelchair he was pushing, he leaned down slightly. His long, bony fingers gently lifted a strand of the other person’s wind-blown hair.
The person in the wheelchair had a calm face and tilted his head without a trace, avoiding Gao Tianchen’s fingers.
“Because I am the baby’s biological father? Or is it because of the legal marriage certificate?”
The tone of Mu Jin’s voice was so calm that it was inexplicably seeping. It was like a pool of stagnant water, without any ripples.
He had never seen such a Mu Jin before, a complete stranger. Gao Tianchen was a little anxious, feeling as if the other party did not believe him, and retorted sharply, “No, because I…”
“Are you going to say that you love me?” Mu Jin faintly snatched his words. His tone was faded with a coolness tinted by his former gentleness.
Gao Tianchen did not follow his words, but only leaned down a little forcefully and pulled Mu Jin into his arms. The other party’s thin, bony, slightly cool body pressed against his broad chest, making him involuntarily want to melt with it. He wanted to love and cherish him.
“If I say yes, will you…believe me?”
Mu Jin was slightly breathless from his hug, but did not push him away. He hung his head slightly, the fine strands of his hair hiding the look in his eyes.
“All right, Tianchen.” A pale smile tugged at the corner of his mouth, hanging on his bloodless face, “You don’t have to say these nice things to fool me because you’re afraid I’ll feel bad.”
“I thought about it all night for many days before I made this decision with a hard heart.”
Mu Jin’s voice was weak, but the words that came out were like sharp knives, cutting into Gao Tianchen’s heart with hidden pain.
“No! This is not a lie, I am really… attracted to you.”
Hearing these words, Mu Jin’s body stiffened slightly with some surprise. His brown amber-like eyes stared at Gao Tianchen in a daze, like a clear pool of spring water.
“What about…what about Ze? Do you still like him?” Mu Jin’s voice was small and his words gentle. However, Gao Tianchen could still sense the tremor in his tone.
He knew that Mu Jin was afraid. Afraid of the answer he was about to give in the next moment. Moreover, his(GT) heart suddenly ached when he heard that person’s name. The pain was suppressed and complicated. That person was so deeply rooted in his own heart that even if he wanted to uproot it now, it would still hurt so much that it would burn his bones.
Mu Jin just waited quietly for the answer from the person behind him. His whole body stiffened, and with the silence, the trepidation and anxiety in his heart gradually intensified. It swallowed up the tiniest bit of hope.
Realizing that the other side wasn’t going to give him an answer, Mu Jin laughed at himself a little. He had only given him a child, and already he(MJ) was getting carried away?
“Sorry, I was overthinking. Pretend I didn’t ask. You guys are really well-matched. Even me, a silently envious ugly love rival, thinks it’s a match made in heaven.”
He sighed lightly, letting out the remaining expectations and luck in his heart. Mu Jin had long since made up his mind that even if Ze was no longer around, he shouldn’t have tied him(GT) down so ruthlessly.
He gently broke away from Gao Tianchen’s embrace and spoke as if he was oblivious, his voice soft as a murmur.
“I’m sorry for causing you to lose the love of your life. To live with someone you don’t love for so long and to suffer innocently from my wishful thinking as well.”
“Sign the agreement, and you’ll be free.”
That evening, when the daylight had fallen and the shadows had blotted out everything in the world, the lights in the villa were turned off. All that remained was a little light in the study, which stood out.
There was nothing on the wide desk but an untouched glass of champagne. The pale golden liquor twined around the glass like a crystal clear ice cube.
Gao Tianchen pulled open the drawer, and the contents were lying quietly at the bottom of it.
Gently pulling it out, he felt that it weighed a thousand pounds even though it was only a few thin pages.
He turned them over bit by bit, moving slowly as if they were rusted out machines. The familiar handwriting on the signature, and the blank space, was really eye-catching.
Mu Jin has always been a stubborn person to the extreme. Once he was obsessed with his love, but now he is obsessed with him(GT) letting go.
In the past, he did not know how to cherish his love, but he trampled on the other party’s love and devotion, cutting them to pieces. What kind of a jerk is he who can wipe out such a deep love for the other person, only to seek relief?
His brow was furrowed. His mind was in a state of confusion, and the tightness in his chest was so strong that he could hardly breathe.
This was what he deserved. Wasn’t it? His own fate? He didn’t know how to appreciate it at first. He just ran away. He thought that if he ran away things wouldn’t happen and hurt the person in his heart to the core.
When the last drop of champagne had fallen into his bitter throat, he picked up the pen with a trembling hand and signed his name in a single stroke.
