Chapter 001: The male wife was not favored
Pei Cheng was desperately looking forward to the appearance of his so-called husband until the last second before his death. But, the one that arrived was his little child.
The little boy he risked his life to give birth to had never called him ‘Dad’, and he had never taken a look at him.
But, at the moment when Pei Cheng’s life was threatened, the little boy rushed out and stood in front of Pei Cheng.
Pei Cheng could swear that he had never regretted that much.
He once regretted being born in the Pei family, regretted marrying into the Jiang family, and regretted giving birth to the little boy, but those regrets were never strong like the one at this moment. His little boy, from toddler to start learning words, from a thin and skinny baby to becoming a gloomy little boy, all of his changes, he had never watched those changes with his own eyes.
He had missed too much.
In January of the fifth year of Hao, Pei Cheng, the male wife of Second Master Jiang, and Jiang YanZhi, the eldest son of Second Master Jiang, both died of natural disaster and their bodies were nowhere to be found.
In October of the third year of Hao, Pei Cheng, who had been seriously ill for several months, finally got better.
Amidst the cold wind, Pei Cheng, leaning against the door, looked at the little boy who was being held in a servant girl’s arms from not far away. His heart was complicated.
The young male servant standing beside him looked at that scene and said flattering: “Young Master is still being held in the arms at this age. Isn’t it a bit too much, making the Jing family lose the face.”
Pei Cheng indifferently glanced at the young male servant: “Talking too much.”
The young male servant’s half-bowed body stiffened.
This Pei Cheng, after a serious illness, how come his temperament had changed so much?
The servant girl saw Pei Cheng from a distance. She pouted her lips and walked to Pei Cheng with the skinny little boy in her arms. She bowed her body unwillingly and said: “Greeting Young Master.”
The little boy looked at Pei Cheng without blinking, but when Pei Cheng looked at him, the little boy turned his head quickly, and his attitude was cold. It was completely different from the little boy who had just expected to be approached by his father.
Pei Cheng didn’t care at all. He moved closer and looked up and down at the little boy, frowning: “He is ...”
How come? Why was the little boy in front of him totally different from the little white baby from his memories, or the cold young boy? ..... completely different? Was the little boy in front of him, with yellow skin and so skinny that his bones were about to be seen, the one whom he had carried for ten months and gave birth to?
Originally, the little boy only had a cold expression, and after hearing Pei Cheng’s words, his face turned black instantly.
The servant girl was in a hurry and quickly explained: “This is Young Master YanZhi. Young Master Pei, it couldn’t be that you forgot him?”
The servant girl’s expression was a bit hard to describe, but most of it was gloating. This Pei Cheng was seriously ill, and now, he didn’t even remember the face of his own child! Don’t tell me, did he turn into a blockhead by his illness?
What a dumb father and son!
The little boy’s body stiffened, his eyes were slightly aggrieved and resentful.
Pei Cheng wasn’t aware of that peculiarity. He commanded the servant girl: “Put him down and go prepare ...”
The servant girl preemptively said: “Young Master, Young Master YanZhi has just eaten, now it’s time to rest, I will take him back first.”
Pei Cheng frowned, but waved his hand and let the servant girl take the little boy away.
The servant girl left quickly, and after a few steps, the servant girl glanced at the little boy in her arms, a trace of impatience flashed in her eyes. An unfavored male wife only had his eldest son who is not valued! Still dare to have the fantasy of making waves to show off?
The little boy moved uncomfortably, but the result? The servant girl used her fingernails and ruthlessly pinched the little boy’s arms. His face turned pale with the pain.
The servant girl said in a bad tone: “My Great Young Master, your slave is very tired of holding you, can you stay still?”
The little boy endured the pain and dared not resist or ask for help. Because he had tried it before, and it was totally useless.
Pei Cheng tightly clutched the cape wrapped on his shoulder, watching the scene of the little boy getting farther and farther, he inexplicably felt uncomfortable.
After hesitating for a while, Pei Cheng sighed deeply, accepted his fate, and he lifted his feet, walked in the direction that the servant girl had just left. “Looks like I really owed you in my previous life.”
But, he really owed him in his last life.
The young male servant rubbed his hands in the cold wind, reluctantly keeping up with Pei Cheng’s pace.
Pei Cheng’s good mood didn’t last long, because he still hadn’t walked into the side courtyard, he heard the conversation from inside of the house.
The young servant girl said disdainfully: “Pei Cheng couldn’t even recognize the child he gave birth to. It seems that next time I bring another child to him, he probably couldn’t recognize that his child was substituted!”
The wet nurse clicked her tongue and said: “Let me say, even if that man can give birth, he is still inferior to a woman. Look at him. He gave birth to a baby boy to the Jings, but still couldn’t enter the main house.”
The young servant girl chuckled and asked with excitement: “Sister Feng, you say. Since he has been kicked out to this auxiliary courtyard for many years, can Young Master Pei still remember what his man looks like?”
The wet nurse just planned to give her reply, but heard a noise from behind.
Pei Cheng stood at the door, behind him was the whistling cold wind; the atmosphere was stiff for a moment.
The wet nurse shook with cold sweat: “Young Master Pei, we ......”
The servant girl awkwardly put down the embroidery in her hands: “Young Master Pei, just now, we are not talking about you, you listen to our explanation ......”
Pei Cheng coldly looked down at the two people, a resentment slowly rose from the bottom of his heart.
These people actually dare to say those nonsense words in the presence of the little guy! What the hell!
Speaking of the little bun, Pei Cheng woke up like a dream, and his eyes began to look for that someone.
Soon, Pei Cheng saw the little boy crouched in the corner and curled into a ball. For once, he felt his heart ache.
The little boy, whom he decided to hold and raise with love and care, squatted on the ground without shoes in this cold winter, and there were no special winter clothes on his body to keep him warm. These two damn women really dare to treat his son like this!
