I am The Villain's Dad - Chapter 41
“I made money in business.”
Su Yuyang told the truth.
Dong Shufen was not convinced, and merely sneered.
It’s true that every time Su Yuyang said that he made money in business, he almost always bought lottery tickets or took some messy odd jobs, neither of which lasted long.
“How long can you do it this time?”
With the child around, Dong Shufen couldn’t help but give Su Yuyang some face. Anyway, he did pay for the meal, and it didn’t really matter between them. She can’t control where his money came from.
She only hoped that he could secure a fixed job and earn enough money for his own survival.
He really didn’t know about this. Business is something that can’t last forever.
Dong Shufen didn’t want to talk to Su Yuyang anymore.
“I came back this time to expand my business here.”
Seeing Dong Shufen’s silence, Su Yuyang simply explained what he was doing now and what his future plans were like.
Here, the only person he can trust and tell what’s in his heart was Dong Shufen.
“So, are you doing resource utilization now?”
Although Dong Shufen had been doing housework and taking care of a child at home and working to earn money, she wasn’t out of touch with society.
She liked watching news and paying attention to current events. She has never been a short-sighted woman.
“Yes, now is the time to do this. Actually, it is the perfect timing to expand my business.”
Su Yuyang was very confident.
Dong Shufen nodded, without much evaluation. As long as Su Yuyang was willing to work hard to earn money, no matter what kind of work it was, it was better than him working for 2 days and taking 3 days off.
He seems to be quite committed in this matter.
On this day, Su Yuyang took Dong Shufen and her son Su Yaotian to eat, go shopping and go to the park to play, and told her nothing but about his work.
The rift between him and Dong Shufen was too big, which can’t be fixed with only a few sentences.
At first, Dong Shufen still had strong hostility towards him, and all her words were harsh. When she found out that Su Yuyang wasn’t bothered by it, she took him at his word every time.
He took special care of her and her son along the way, and gradually, she became a little embarrassed.
She was the one who proposed the divorce, saying that she would put the past behind her and never have anything to do with this person again.
As a result, now the man just wanted to take their son to have a meal together, so she took this opportunity to sneer at him, which then she felt was simply unreasonable and too petty.
However, it was false to say that she didn’t hate him, but she couldn’t keep looking for trouble in front of their son just because of what happened before.
Finally, she could only stay silent as she watched him play with their son, buy food for them both, and thoughtfully sent them home.
“Shufen, I’m sorry for everything that happened in the past.”
Only after Su Yaotian was placed on the clean bed at home by Su Yuyang, and Dong Shufen sent him out, he finally spoke solemnly.
Dong Shufen didn’t speak or interrupt him.
If it was before today, she would be too impatient to hear him say this.
What’s the use of talking now? Things have already happened, is it easy to say with just opening your mouth?
And if that’s all he said and talked about, what’s there to listen to?
However, it was different now. Today’s Su Yuyang was totally different from the old him.
Now, she was willing to listen to him and want to see what he said, though it didn’t mean that she had to forgive him.
“When I was in Niucheng, I suffered a lot and thought about a lot of things, as well as those people in my family. I finally saw their true colors. At that time, I was in pain and wanted to come back to you, but I couldn’t bring myself to do so. In a fit of rage, I took all my anger out on you.
I couldn’t think of anyone else I could blame or help me bear the consequences, and you didn’t want me either. The only person I can justify and be strong enough to stay with is Tiantian.
Then, I became a beggar. Tiantian is so young, but he knew how to take care of his Dad, me, a loser. But then I still spent every day grumbling and being over-ambitious.”
These words were what the original owner wanted to say. Su Yuyang just let the original owner’s consciousness temporarily occupy his body.
He didn’t do what the original owner had done, and he didn’t have feelings and guilt towards Dong Shufen. Some words, for him, were not as good as what the original owner would say.
Needless to say, this was the original wish of the original owner.
“After that, I decided I won’t be me anymore, but I won’t let you suffer again. I won’t let Tiantian suffer. I hope you can be happy, whether you are with me or not.”
After that, the original owner’s consciousness gradually pulled away from his original body, and Su Yuyang could feel that the original owner’s wish was fulfilled.
After this, all he did was not only to change Dong Shufen’s mind, but also to make the original owner feel completely at ease with him.
He knew that Su Yuyang could take better care of his wife and son than he ever did.
“I don’t quite understand some of what you’re saying, but I also want you to be well. “
Dong Shufen sighed, no matter what changes have taken place in Su Yuyang, the two of them have always been past tense.
She didn’t want to stay married, and she didn’t want to go back to her previous marriage. She just wanted to live well with her son.
Su Yuyang nodded, said nothing more, and turned to leave.
His son was handed over to Dong Shufen. He can handle his own business well. His business in Yangcheng needs to be expanded slowly.
However, even if there is no chance to live with Dong Shufen again, he wouldn’t be too far away from his son.
As soon as Su Yaotian left school, he saw his father driving and stopping at the school gate, and jumped happily.
He was now in the first grade of primary school, and today was the first day of school. Unfortunately, his Mom was too busy to pick him up, but luckily, his Dad came.
Unexpectedly, his Dad had bought a car!
“How was school today?”
Su Yuyang picked up his son. In two years, he gained a firm foothold in the provincial capital and helped more homeless, disabled people, and beggars while making money.
He even helped the police catch a human trafficking group.
In addition to Niucheng, there were many traffickers in the whole country. The provincial capital wasn’t as large as Niucheng, but it was also morbid.
Because he was deeply affected by Su Yaotian’s abduction and trafficking, he was especially hateful and sensitive to these incidents.
Almost as soon as those people appeared in front of him, he could see the difference between them and ordinary people.
Being able to do something for the victims, Su Yuyang thought, was very meaningful to him.
At the same time, it was also a way for him to atone for the original Su Yaotian.
In those days, he was abducted when he was too young, whether by choice or not, and did a lot of wrong things under the pressure of those people.
Sometimes, in order to protect himself, he still helped to abduct and sell other children. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have won their trust and become their little leader.
Although he didn’t have much power or influence, he tried every means to protect the children, and after the police intervened, he managed to destroy the group.
But after all that, mistakes were made.
This time, Su Yuyang helped to deal with those traffickers, which could be regarded as helping Su Yaotian pay his debts, but also to save more children like Su Yaotian.
In this way, when he looks at Su Yaotian’s happiness, his heart would feel stable.
He hopes that the child will grow up healthily and happily.
“I met a lot of children, and a little girl said that her future wish is to be a policewoman. Like her Dad, I think she is so cool! Dad, I want to be a policeman too.”
Su Yaotian held Su Yuyang’s neck and spoke in his ear.
“Yes, it’s good to be a policeman. Being a policeman, you can catch bad people and help good people. However, to be one is very hard, and you must be very powerful. Otherwise, if you can’t protect yourself, how can you protect others?”
Su Yuyang listened to his son’s aspirations and encouraged him further.
“Then, how can I become powerful?”
Su Yaotian blinked and asked curiously.
“Don’t worry, Dad will help you.”
Su Yuyang poked Su Yaotian’s small nose.
“Now, let’s go to the vegetable market to buy food, and protect the stomach of the woman who needs your protection most.”
“Hey, did Mom say what she wanted to eat today?”
Su Yaotian didn’t stop helping Su Yuyang, as he still wanted to see his Dad. He missed his Dad’s cooking, staying frequently with his Dad, and having his Dad help him out with homework when he couldn’t, and so on.
Fortunately, Su Yuyang has now bought the house across the street from the one they were staying in, so it was very convenient for them both now.
In the past two years, Dong Shufen also watched Su Yuyang come over little by little, made money, bought a house and a car, and didn’t keep in touch with the former relatives and friends. Instead, he did a lot of good things and was even praised on TV.
Although he never showed her face in order to protect her, she just recognized him, just like when he was in Niucheng before, as she could recognize him at a glance.
Gradually, she really believed that he had changed. He was completely different from the former man he was.
Even her parents were full of praise for Su Yuyang’s change of heart, and occasionally mentioned that she has to remarry.
But she was really afraid. Afraid of marriage.
She was afraid that a marriage would make Su Yuyang turn bad again.
Perhaps, two people getting along just like this was quite good, just as friends.
If one day, Tiantian’s Dad wants to find another woman, she would take her son away and not disturb his life.
She was living a full life now and didn’t want to change anything.
Su Yuyang deliberately made her comfortable now.
This woman had suffered too much, suffered too much injustice, and paid too much of her youth for her family.
It was time for her to enjoy her life and think about what she wanted.
His contribution was his own will, and he didn’t want to force Dong Shufen to do so because of his guilt.
“Mom didn’t say anything, so we’ll just buy what Tiantian likes to eat.”
If he really asked Dong Shufen, she would only say no and that she will do it herself, or take her son out to eat.
Without Su Yuyang, the black sheep, Dong Shufen also managed to save a lot of money. After all, he paid for his son’s living expenses.
She didn’t have to spend so much money now, and from not having to live so stressfully, she looked much better. Originally, people in their twenties should look like this.
“Oh, isn’t this Tiantian?”
When the father and son entered the vegetable market, they heard a man with a heavy local accent calling out to them pleasantly.
