I am The Villain's Dad - Chapter 40
The two met in a small park near the Dong family’s home.
Dong Shufen was reluctant to meet Su Yuyang alone.
They were divorced now, so what’s left for her to see?
Outsiders might think that divorced women are less common these days, and she also has a child with her, so the divorcee label she had now is a self-inflicted suffering and her future life wouldn’t be easy.
Even her parents didn’t agree to her divorce, as they said she should just put up with it and move on. Her parents, at their age, weren’t they quarrelling too?
Su Yuyang liked bragging, helping family members, and always showed loyalty to his good brothers. They didn’t really mind it as he didn’t have any bad habits like whoring, gambling, and beating others.
But they were not her, and they can’t understand how painful her life was.
If she had been like her parents, who were matched together by someone who introduced them to each other and agreed with living together, despite not having much in common, she thought she would have been able to live like that for the sake of her children.
But things weren’t like that. She had feelings and fantasies about Su Yuyang.
And this fantasy, after marriage, was broken by Su Yuyang piece by piece. The experience was too painful for her, and the results of it were too unacceptable.
In the end, she had to lie to her father. She said she divorced him because she wanted to make Su Yuyang change for the better, and that they could get married again later.
It was only under this circumstance that her father agreed and kindly helped her divorce Su Yuyang.
But then, Su Yuyang took the child away in a rage, and she was very worried. However, her father said that it was just a lesson for Su Yuyang to taste the pain of taking care of the child, and to let him be.
She could only endure and worry for her son. Fortunately, this time, Su Yuyang didn’t make her deepest fears come true.
This is also the reason why she was willing to meet with Su Yuyang after repeatedly considering it.
All things considered, the two of them did have a child together, so it was not good to make their relationship appear too rigid, as it wouldn’t be good for their child.
Seeing Dong Shufen coming, Su Yuyang stood up, took Su Yaotian’s hand, and greeted her from a distance.
Unlike him and Su Yaotian, who were both white and clean, Dong Shufen looked very bad, her face pale, her eyes puffy and clearly baggy from lack of sleep, her hair casually pulled behind her head. She was wearing a clean blue dress, which was still the same style she wore since 7 or 8 years ago.
She had been in no mood to dress herself up for several years.
She had to take care of her child, do housework and earn money at work every day. She didn’t even have time to sleep. How can she think of dressing herself up?
In the past few months, Su Yuyang had taken away the child, so she didn’t have to do much housework, and she didn’t have to take care of him.
But she still couldn’t sleep well, because her discomfort and worries kept her up at night.
It wasn’t until she saw her child that she finally relaxed.
“Well, you’ve worked hard.”
Dong Shufen didn’t even look at him, and just stretched out her hand to take Su Yaotian.
“Tiantian, let’s go. Mom will take you to buy delicious food.”
She hadn’t seen her son for so many days, her heart was aching for him.
“Mom, Dad said he’d take us to eat Kelsen’s cheesecake, and I’ve been wanting it for ages, so let’s go together! Dad said that I can go to Huaxing to eat steak at night!”
(TNote: kelsens/huaxing = both names or places that sell food.)
Su Yaotian held Dong Shufen with one hand, but he didn’t let go of Su Yuyang with his other hand. On the contrary, Su Yaotian pulled hard, seemingly afraid that Dong Shufen would pull him away.
“Mom will make you ribs and stewed trotters.”
Hearing her son’s words, Dong Shufen was disappointed with Su Yuyang. After so many days, she thought he had changed a little, but he still liked to brag so much.
The food at these two places her son said wasn’t cheap, and one meal could eat up half of her salary.
It has only been a few months, and she didn’t believe Su Yuyang could have so much money all at once.
Furthermore, it was spent on their son.
Last time, Su Yuyang was used to spending a lot of money. Occasionally, when he came back home satisfied, he might throw 10 yuan at his son, but he would only do so to ask him to help him buy cigarettes.
As for her son’s daily expenses, she was responsible for them.
He also bought some high-end toys for their son, but this only happened rarely, when he made a small fortune.
He didn’t take their son out to play or eat a meal at all, not to mention going to such an upscale place.
Undoubtedly, her son was deceived by him now, and she didn’t trust his words at all. She just didn’t expect him to be coaxed by his father again this time.
Her son is gullible, but she isn’t.
“No, Mom, I want to eat.”
Su Yaotian hesitated for a moment before he spoke to Dong Shufen.
To be honest, he hadn’t seen his Mom for so long, and he missed her cooking ribs and trotters, but for his Dad to have a chance to confess to her, he… He was willing to do anything!
He’ll bet on a pot of pork ribs and pig’s trotters!
Dong Shufen also wanted to persuade his son, but didn’t want to tell him directly that his Dad was a liar and that he would never take him to eat cheesecake and steak.
After a while of persuasion, Su Yaotian refused, and Dong Shufen got a little annoyed and looked at Su Yuyang.
“Do you think that’s good?”
“Just give me a chance to make it up to my son.”
Su Yuyang hasn’t spoken, but has been observing Dong Shufen.
The original owner, the male scum, only had the impression of his wife that she was young and beautiful before the marriage, and that she was a fierce shrew during the divorce.
He felt that this wasn’t the real Dong Shufen, and he could only rely on himself to get to know more of her.
Right now, Dong Shufen was a patient and well-educated woman.
She was not the most beautiful, but she had a gentle temperament.
“Ah, well, I’ll see how you can make up for it. I can’t afford it.”
Dong Shufen was stung by Su Yuyang’s smile. Was it fun to lie to his son so much and use him as a weapon?
She’d like to see how thick his face can be. When the time comes, she wouldn’t pay for it. See where his face goes! Doesn’t he love to save face and brag?
Let him brag! The worst that can happen is that he goes to jail today.
She can’t keep watching her son be fooled by him.
“Then let’s go.”
Su Yuyang restrained his smile. Obviously, Dong Shufen didn’t like his smile. Maybe she misunderstood something.
Facing someone you hate, if the other person still smiled at you, does feel a little bit bad, doesn’t it?
Su Yuyang felt that he seemed to have found the biggest problem since he started.
Neither of his first two tasks were so hostile to him, and the original owners of his tasks were not so scummy.
This time, he felt that the scum wasn’t good. He didn’t want to excuse him, but only wanted to atone for his past mistakes.
For a while, he really didn’t know how to face this situation.
“Host, the task object’s aversion to you has reached 100!”
The system came out to remind Su Yuyang that the host was terrible, right? It’s a great way to make people feel better, but it actually makes them even angrier.
“I don’t need you to tell me!”
Su Yuyang couldn’t help but turn a supercilious look. Did this guy come out to laugh at him?
“Then, keep up the good work, host!”
“Wait, why don’t you lend me some points and exchange it for some charm or something?”
Now that it came out, how can he not exploit it a little and scare it. How can he afford to let it just laugh at him?
“No! Host, you need to cherish these points, and you can’t just borrow them at will! I’m… I’m off to bring in new people!!!”
After saying that, the system was gone.
“Eh? A new guy? You’re so stupid, can you get new people to take over? Don’t lead others astray…”
Su Yuyang lamented, but didn’t forget to stretch out his hand to get a taxi. He also helped Dong Shufen open the door.
As a result, Dong Shufen sat shotgun. She didn’t get what he wanted to do, as she thought he was pulling the door for his son.
Sure enough, the original owner was too scummy…
When they arrived at the place, Su Yuyang took the order first, and then put Su Yaotian into the children’s playground in the store and let him play with the children there.
He seized the opportunity to be alone with Dong Shufen and talk to her.
But Dong Shufen obviously didn’t intend to give him this chance.
Seeing her son leave, she immediately turned and went to the ladies’ room. After coming out, she found a window seat and sat down.
Su Yuyang couldn’t let his son out of his sight, so he could only watch Dong Shufen, who sat indifferently.
“Dad, why don’t you go to Mom?”
Su Yaotian has been paying attention to the situation here, forcing down his inner impulse to have fun, and ran to urge Su Yuyang.
“In a moment.”
Su Yuyang didn’t want to add any more burden to his son, which would make him unhappy when he plays.
“Okay, can I help you?”
Su Yaotian looked at his Mom, who seemed to be staring out the window, and felt helpless.
“No, it’s fine. Instead, have you thought of how you are going to play? Dad also hopes you can have fun today.”
Touching his son’s little head, Su Yuyang said as much.
After all, Su Yaotian was still a child. When he heard Su Yuyang’s words, he immediately ran away happily.
Later when the food was served and they ate, Dong Shufen’s heart was struggling.
When she sat alone by the window, she had already looked at the menu and calculated how much the meal would cost.
After the calculation, she was a little worried.
It cost more than 80 yuan. She brought 100 yuan when she came out today. After paying that much, she would only have the remaining to spend for the rest of the month. Her son just came back, and she didn’t want her son to suffer.
She also had to cook some more delicious food for her son, and in the past few months, she has been able to save some money, but after spending it this way, they would have nothing left.
She had never gone through this before, but she thought that if she had no money, Su Yuyang would never give up a dime for her.
Thinking of herself, raising her son despite having no money, her heart was always a little uneasy.
“Waiter, check out please.”
Su Yuyang didn’t have any intention to eat. He has been paying attention to Dong Shufen throughout the meal. Seeing her glance at the bill from time to time, he knew that she must be worried about money.
Instead of making her eat so uneasily, it was better to pay the money first and then have a good meal.
When Dong Shufen heard this sentence, she became a little nervous.
Su Yuyang once again grumbled internally. The original owner was really scum. How did he treat his wife and child?
Two people got married only when they fell in love freely! Why did you put your wife in such a bitter predicament?
“Two more orange juice, a dessert, and then check out.”
Su Yuyang took out a 100-yuan bill and handed it to the waiter.
When ordering, he knew all about the price, and naturally knew how much the meal would cost.
“Okay, please wait a moment.”
For such a generous guest, the waiter was naturally quick.
Dong Shufen didn’t even have time to reach out for her purse.
“Where did you get so much money?”
She looked at Su Yuyang with a face full of shock. He didn’t steal it, did he?
