Chapter 4 Returning with A Son

“That’s right. Junxuan-ge and I have long been in agreement with each other. We were having an affair in secret. His car accident was faked. The one who was fulfilling his physical needs every single day was me. However, the papers have already been signed, even if you know about this, what’s going to happen?”

Cheng Liyue faltered a few steps back. Although her countenance was pale, she felt the blood thrumming through her veins. Her husband had actually slept at Shen Junyao’s place every night? All those days Lu Junxuan was on a business trip, all the various excuses that he came up with for not going home, were all because of this woman? An intense pain seized her. She felt stifled.

“Who was that man? Who was that bastard you’ve arranged for me last night?” Eyes brimming with tears, Cheng Liyue glared at her and asked harshly.

Shen Junyao looked at her impatiently. “It doesn’t matter who the man was last night. What’s important is that, last night, you slept with a man.”

“Tell me who was it! Hurry and tell me who it was… ” Cheng Liyue worked herself into a frenzy, raising her voice as she asked.

Annoyed, Shen Junyao answered. “Last night we arranged a male hooker for you. However, the male hooker said that another man had already entered your room. He didn’t want to engage in a threesome so he went back. So, whether your man is ugly or old, fat or skinny, no one knows.”

“I don’t believe this. I want to check the security cameras.” Cheng Liyue was quivering in rage.

“Unfortunately, the security cameras of the hotel yesterday were faulty.” Shen Junyao smiled gleefully, because the hotel belonged to the Lu family.

Cheng Liyue face turned pale as snow. Their set up was flawless.

At this point, Chen Xia came over with her passport and tossed it at her. “Here. Quickly be on your way.”

Cheng Liyue clutched her passport. She glared at the hateful faces of these people. She was feeling unresigned[1] and was in misery. She felt that this was all detestable to the point where she was unwilling to stay for another second, else she would suffocate and would surely expire on the spot.

“I despise all of you, each and every single one of you.” With tears streaming down her face, Cheng Liyue’s slender figure left in despair.

Looking at the figure of Cheng Liyue leaving, Chen Xia and Shen Junyao’s eyes met each other’s for a moment. At last, they’ve gotten rid of this insignificant person.

Four years later, the airport.

A young lady held up a placard at the arrival hall.

On the placard it was written in capital letters, “Cheng Li Yue, Chief Designer.” The lady anxiously scanned the crowd, looking for the person stated.

Her gaze landed exclusively on those elegantly-dressed women.

At this time, within the crowd, emerged a leisurely and natural figure pushing a trolley. On the trolley were two large luggage. On top of the luggage, sat a little boy dressed in denim jacket, grey shorts and beige sneakers.

Amongst the crowd, the woman’s gorgeous and slender figure, with her hair gathered in a loose bun, looking neat and simple, with a clear face, exquisite facial features and fair skin, was the envy of many.

Looking at the little boy seated on top the luggage, although he was only three or four years old, he was sporting the beginnings of a catastrophic beauty.

With cropped jet-black hair, fringe covering his forehead, finely-shaped eyebrows, a pair of onyx-colored eyes giving off a confident aura, pointed nose, tender, pink lips, a healthy complexion, he was just like a child model right out of the cover of a magazine.

Female passersby who happened to glance at this little boy would exclaim in awe. Too good-looking.

Wishing to carry him off with them.

“Mommy, it looks like that aunt is here to pick us up.”

Cheng Liyue’s lips lifted into a smile. Although her son may be young, he was able to recognize words.

She let out a breath. Unexpectedly, four years later, she has returned to this city.

Back then, she was filled with resentment when she left. Now she returned with only the feeling of tranquility.

In the past four years, what she had experienced – the trials and hardships, only she alone was aware of them. In the span of four years, she had changed. She had become a strong-minded, single mother.

TL Note: I’m sorry if the sentence may seem a little bit disjointed. It’s hard to fit in that many adjectives in a sentence while remaining true to the meaning of the original sentence. Yeah, I’m referring to those descriptive sentences where the author uses a gazillion adjectives to describe the features of a single character. And because I’m relying heavily on a machine translator, there might be some chinese phrases that I’m unfamiliar with, so I’ll just wing it. Pardon me for any mistakes.
