Chapter 111: How Old Are You?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gao Meng’s parents were both workers. Her father got cancer when she was ten years old, and the family emptied their savings in order to treat him.
Not even two years after her father passed away, her mother also died in a car accident, and she dropped out of school when she was just 15 years old.
Her relatives were all only self-interested, and the uncle who adopted her only did so because he fancied her beauty, and sold her to a club to work as a hostess.
She escaped from the club and came to the capital alone. She did all kinds of jobs, but because of her good looks, she was envied by women and harassed by men, and could not stay long anywhere.
For the poor, being good-looking was the original sin. Afterward, she coincidentally entered showbiz, but since she refused to submit to the unspoken rules, she could only play small roles and could not earn enough to make ends meet.
Over the years, she met many big bosses who wanted to keep her, but she rejected them all. Sometimes, not even she knew what she was trying to do.
In her most difficult time, she considered selling her body and accepting the unspoken rules, but ultimately, she could not convince herself to do so. Her father and mother did not give birth to her and raise her so she would do something like that.
If she had done those things, how sad and hurt would her parents in heaven feel? How would she face them when she died?
In the past, she often asked herself what was the meaning of her persistence, but now she knew. It was so she could meet Lil Chairman Shen.
She was grateful to Lil Chairman Shen from the bottom of her heart and treated her like a bosom friend. She tried her best to prove to Shen Xi that she could do it!
Yun Jinping was kind and sentimental. After hearing Gao Meng’s words, her eyes turned red and her heartstrings were tugged. “Come here often in the future and treat this place as your home. I’m not an outsider.”
“Thank you, Auntie.” Gao Meng actually regretted it when she finished speaking and looked at Lil Chairman Shen in apprehension. Would Lil Chairman Shen think she was playing tricks again in order to win sympathy?
Surprisingly, Shen Xi gave her a sympathetic look. Gao Meng was quite miserable. She was not that much better off compared to Shen Xi.
Yu Yuanxi was also soft-hearted. After listening to Gao Meng’s life, he felt even more grateful to his grandmother. At least his grandmother was still around, and he still had relatives, so he was not alone.
He had to work hard, make a lot of money, buy a big house, and honor his grandmother and let her live a good life.
The company of four worked together and soon made a table of dishes.
Gao Meng had also bought a cake but did not dare to take it out. In the end, Yun Jinping asked them to bring it over.
Since she already decided to celebrate her birthday, they should celebrate it happily. If her son saw that she was still sad and unable to let go, he would be heartbroken.
Both the guests and the hosts thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
After eating, Yu Yuanxi helped to clean the dishes, and Shen Xi and Gao Meng tidied up the place.
No matter how much Yun Jinping told them not to do it, it was useless. They were all diligent and sensible children, so skilled in chores that it made her heart ache.
It was reasonable to think that a boy Yu Yuanxi’s age would not know how to cook, but he was an expert in the kitchen and knew how to do everything.
“Lil Yu, how old are you this year?” Yun Jinping’s eyes were gentle. The more she got along with him, the more she liked him.
This child was truly good. He was polite, gentle, and sensible.
“Nineteen.” Yu Yuanxi smiled and said, “I went to school late, so I’m two years older than my classmate.”
Yun Jinping nodded and said with a smile, “Not old, not old at all. In our time, you would have to be twenty years old to be in senior high school.”
Nineteen years old. What a good age!
If her Zhifei was still around, he would be exactly that age.
