Sheng Xiao never needed to be secretive when he wanted to judge someone. His words meant that he was thinking the same thing.
[He’s a fool, blind and shallow. You should be happy to break off the engagement with such a fool.]
The customers sitting next to Yu Huang heard Sheng Xiao’s words. They thought for a while and decided that the person whom Master Sheng said was “stupid and shallow” was the young master of the Xuanyuan clan.
Everyone’s expression changed. So this was how Master Sheng saw the young master of the Xuanyuan family?
Yu Huang did not know whether to laugh or cry. She wanted to laugh, but when she thought about how ugly it would be to have scars when she smiled, she suppressed the smile on her face. She was afraid that she would scare Sheng Xiao.
Yu Huang felt better after Sheng Xiao comforted her. “Master Sheng is right. The future is still long. I will live my life happily.”
Sheng Xiao admired Yu Huang’s optimistic attitude.
When Yu Donghai was cursing earlier, Sheng Xiao was standing outside the door and heard everything clearly.
It was inevitable that people would gossip about Yu Huang when she was eating in the main hall. Sheng Xiao wanted to help the young lady out of her predicament, so he said, “It’s like this. I have something to do so I need to leave early. It would be a waste to leave the room that I booked earlier empty. Yu…”
Sheng Xiao paused. He was not sure how to address Yu Huang.
Miss Yu Huang?
None of them seemed appropriate.
Yu Huang was seven years younger than Sheng Xiao. When she made her debut, Sheng Xiao was not even twelve years old. Yu Huang’s debut drama was called ‘Depending On Each Other for Survival’. It was about a single mother who brought her seriously ill daughter to the capital to seek medical treatment. However, she was rejected everywhere. She endured various hardships, but she did not give up hope.
That drama was filmed very well. The lines, dubbing, music, and editing were all top-notch. Back then, the viewership ratings were very high, and it was even introduced by many foreign television stations. From that year onwards, Yu Huang became one of the world’s famous child stars.
Sheng Xiao’s mother was a loyal fan of that drama. She would shed tears whenever she saw emotional scenes. When Sheng Xiao returned home after his training, he saw his mother sobbing with a tissue. He also watched a few episodes with his mother.
Sheng Xiao could not remember the plot of the drama, but he could not forget how his heart ached when he saw Little Yu Huang crying in the drama. When he saw her crying, his heart ached so much that he wanted to throw the candy in his pocket into the TV and feed it to her.
The image of Yu Huang when she was younger appeared in Sheng Xiao’s mind. He hesitated for two seconds before asking, “Little Yu Huang, do you want to have a meal with your family?”
Yu Huang had lived for more than 200 years and this was the first time someone called her “Little Yu Huang”. She felt a little embarrassed and her ears blushed.
Yu Huang did not want to accept Sheng Xiao’s kindness. After all, they were not familiar with each other. However, when she noticed Yu Donghai lowering his head timidly, she thought that he was angry with the people around him.
If they were in a different room, her Dad might feel more at ease.
In the end, Yu Huang accepted Sheng Xiao’s help. “Thank you, Master Sheng.”
“You’re welcome.” Sheng Xiao turned around and said to the owner, Fan Sheng, “Mr. Fan, please bring my two friends to the private room for a meal.”
Fan Sheng was surprised to see Sheng Xiao use the word “friend” to define his relationship with Yu Huang. However, he hid his emotions well and said to Manager Zhang, “Manager Zhang, send Miss Yu Huang and her family to the private room for a meal.”
Sheng Xiao only left after Yu Huang and her father entered the room.
Fan Sheng hurriedly chased after him. “Master Sheng, let me see you out!”
The moment Sheng Xiao left, the restaurant’s main hall was in an uproar. What kind of plot was this? Yu Huang had just broken off her engagement with Xuanyuan Jing in the afternoon, and now, she was riding on Master Sheng’s coattails?
Everyone turned their heads to look in the direction of the private room. Someone couldn’t help but murmur, “Yu Huang is a femme fatale. Before she was disfigured, she charmed Young Master Xuanyuan so much that he fell head over heels for her. After her disfigurement, she still managed to befriend Master Sheng.”
After knowing that Yu Huang was Sheng Xiao’s friend, the way they talked about her changed again.
“As expected of Yu Huang. Her charm is boundless. She doesn’t rely on her looks. She can get to know people like Master Sheng just based on her character and charm.”
“This girl is incredible. She will definitely become successful in the future!”
After Fan Sheng sent Sheng Xiao off, he returned to the restaurant. He heard their discussion and clicked his tongue. Then, he said calmly, “Everyone, if you don’t eat now, the food will get cold!” He was reminding them to shut up.
When everyone heard that, they lowered their heads and ate.
After dinner, Yu Donghai brought Yu Huang to buy clothes.
The clothes that Yu Donghai usually wore were bought from the market stalls. Shirts and pants cost 15 yuan each. They were cheap and durable, but the style was old-fashioned. Thinking of how Yu Huang’s body was delicate, he thought about how she couldn’t wear those rough fabrics. Yu Donghai brought Yu Huang into a clothing store.
Due to her status, the original owner of the body was always dressed fashionably. She never wore cheap goods from small shopping malls. However, Yu Huang didn’t mind these. She bought a few sets of clothes before riding her tricycle home with Yu Donghai.
The two of them had just arrived at their doorstep when they received a call from the furniture store delivery man. After Yu Huang hung up, Yu Donghai asked her, “What did you buy?”
“I bought you a bed.”
Yu Donghai was stunned for a moment, and felt extremely moved. He said, “I can sleep on the floor, so don’t waste that money.”
Yu Huang said, “You’re my father. My heart aches when you sleep on the floor.”
Yu Donghai lowered his head and didn’t speak. He looked like he was about to cry again. Yu Huang couldn’t stand him looking like this and hurriedly pushed him into the courtyard. “You’re not allowed to cry. You’re my father, someone I depend on.”
Yu Donghai hurriedly held back his tears.
The delivery man moved the bed into the rented room and left after assembling it. The design of the bed was simple, but the mattress Yu Huang had prepared for Yu Donghai was the most expensive design in the store. Yu Donghai laid on the bed and let out a comfortable sigh. “This mattress is more comfortable than my bed’s. How much did you buy it for?”
Yu Huang lied without batting an eye. “It’s complimentary for the bed I bought for you. It’s not worth much.”
Yu Donghai believed her words. He sat up again and said to Yu Huang, “Let’s change beds. This bed is more comfortable than mine. You can sleep on this.”
Without even thinking, Yu Huang rejected him. “No way! You should sleep on this bed. We young people are not picky about beds.”
When he heard this, Yu Donghai looked at Yu Huang with a deep gaze, and after a long time, he couldn’t help but lament with emotion. “If your biological parents were still alive, how happy would they be to see you being so kind and filial?”
Yu Huang reminded Yu Donghai expressionlessly, “They abandoned me.”
Yu Donghai wanted to say something, but stopped himself.
Yu Huang went to take a shower. As she showered, she pondered.
She began to doubt her own identity.
Her father said that he had picked her up in the abyss. What kind of place was the abyss? It was the most dangerous primitive forest on the Holy Spirit Continent. There were tens of thousands of ferocious beasts living in it. It was the legendary demonic zone where one could not come out as long as they walked in!
A child who could only drink milk and cry would die wherever she was thrown, so why throw her into the abyss?
And her father was just an ordinary person. Why would he go to the abyss?
Was it really just a coincidence that her father found her?
