Like the actor had said, it was probably only a matter of time before the man found his ideal woman. Then the two of them would get married and have children. Gong Jie’s blood will run in the children’s veins. They would be his very own children.
But she… wasn’t. If that day should come, then… Would that child replace her and receive all of Gong Jie’s affections? And she… would be nothing. Suddenly Natalia envied the imaginary children. Even if they had yet to be born and only existed in the abstract, the thought of it made her envious. Gong Jie’s child, she thought, would be the luckiest child in the world, with such a dashing and doting father.
Such a bond between a father and his own flesh and blood, regretfully, was probably something she would never get to experience in her life.
Natalia suddenly looked forlorn at the thought.
When Hua Jin turned to look at her, she immediately smiled to hide her feelings. The actor, on the other hand, was an extremely sensitive man. Through Natalia’s smile, he saw her desolation and disappointment.
Hua Jin immediately realized that his words had probably stirred some negative associations. She probably thought that if the day should come when Gong Jie would find his ideal woman, get married and have his own child, he would surely give all his love to that child rather than her.
But if Natalia was not going to say anything about it, he couldn’t either, for it would be too deliberate.
While he was feeling troubled over this, Natalia stared at him curiously. “Will you get married one day?”
“You’ll definitely find your ideal woman one day and get married. Then, you’ll be like Daddy, getting married and having your own kids, right!?”
Hearing this, the actor immediately confirmed his suspicions. Indeed. She was worrying about this.
The actor smiled and immediately said, “I’m not getting married.”
Expecting Hua Jin to say otherwise, Natalia was greatly surprised to hear his answer.
“Because…” The actor said earnestly, “I don’t want to get married.”
“Why don’t you want to get married?”
“Because I have you.”
Natalia was not expecting that answer. She was stunned and turned to him in surprise.
“Are you planning to grow old and die alone?”
To grow old and die alone… Ha! He was not one destined for loneliness.
“What do you mean, grow old and die alone? I have you, don’t I?” The actor stroked her head indulgently. “From now on, no matter what happens, you and I will be together forever and never be apart!”
Natalia felt a wave of emotion wash over her when she heard those words. Tears welled up in her eyes, but she tried not to let them overflow. Instead, she nodded heavily. “Yes! I will study hard and make money for your retirement!”
Perhaps, Natalia did not fully understand the idea of remaining single throughout one’s life, but it was enough to surprise him! Still… Retirement…
The actor immediately pictured himself slumped in his wheelchair, Natalia all grown up and being kept busy looking after him.
Oh God. This brat had not even grown up, but he was already imagining her in her old age. Was this the picture of filial piety? Should he be visibly touched?
Natalia threw herself into his arms and said solemnly, “I’ve decided I’m going to love you more from now on! After all, you’re the man who’s going to be with me for the rest of my life!”
