“Yeah,” Tong Hua said and smiled. He was very happy. The fans squealed in delight, looking around in anticipation of knowing who Tong Hua’s mother was.
The emcee said, “Alright, Tong Hua do you have anything for your mummy?”
Tong Hua pondered and asked, “Mummy, can I help you look for a partner?”
Shen Qianshu was speechless.
Son, is there something wrong with you? Are you kidding me?
Tong Hua looked for a partner for Shen Qianshu in front of national television, causing it to become a hot topic in the region. His family background was not a secret in the entertainment industry. After all, it was the information age. The fact that Tong Hua was adopted by Shen Qianshu was already discovered long ago.
Lin Xiaojuan’s managing team also worked things out intelligently. The entire team tried to hide information relating to Tong Hua’s biological parents, and as a result, they could barely be found. On the other hand, they made Shen Qianshu more known to the public. Furthermore, Tong Hua was a filial son, always sticking to his mother. Everyone knew that Tong Hua had an angelic mother and that he did not have a father.
Once he said that he wanted to look for a partner for Shen Qianshu, it became a hot topic quickly and many ‘mama’ fans were heartbroken. They found the child pitiful and thought that he must be wishing for a family. Many people began introducing potential ‘candidates’ for Shen Qianshu. Shen Qianshu’s marriage was a hot topic on Weibo [ 4. Weibo is a social networking site. ], and the ‘mama’ fans literally searched through the entire entertainment industry for a potential father for Tong Hua.
For a period of time, discussions were intense.
In the lounge, Lin Xiaojuan stared at Tong Hua. Tong Hua licked an ice cream and smiled at her.
Lin Xiaojuan said, “Do you want to rise to the heavens? My dear, why did you throw such a bomb out on a live-stream?”
Tong Hua blinked innocently, looking adorable and ignorant. His smile was as sweet as the ice cream in his hands. “Mummy has had too many bad romances, so we might as well let her become famous. Who knows? She might find the right one.”
Lin Xiaojuan facepalmed, not knowing whether to laugh or to cry. Shen Qianshu pushed the door open, and Tong Hua was elated. He rushed into her arms smiling and then kissed her on her face as he said, “Mummy, did I do well?”
“I helped you ask for a partner, aren’t you glad?”
Tong Hua looked up at Lin Xiaojuan, giving her a look that told her to notice that his mother had praised him. Lin Xiaojuan was so tired of the mother and son that she wished she could throw them out.
“Tong Hua, don’t be mischievous. Aunt Xiaojuan is about to explode,” Shen Qianshu said and pinched her son’s cheeks. “Just think about how you’re going to earn money for our family. I’ll take on the responsibility of being as beautiful as a flower and find you a foster daddy.”
Lin Xiaojuan rolled her eyes and said impolitely, “Shen Qianshu, shouldn’t you be the one earning money for the family while your son takes on the responsibility of looking ‘beautiful as a flower?’”
“Tong Hua’s better at it then I am, and I feel guilty too! Can’t help it that you’re so good at it.”
Lin Xiaojuan said, “You seem to be asking for it!”
Shen Qianshu took out a maroon accessory box from her bag, passed it to Lin Xiaojuan, and said, “Xiaojuan, I missed your birthday this year. Here’s your belated gift.”
Lin Xiaojuan seemed like she did not understand what being polite was. She took it and opened it immediately. She was shocked that Shen Qianshu had given her a necklace. Lin Xiaojuan was a Christian lady, and knowing that, Shen Qianshu used a crystal to make the hollow cross pendant with an indigo blue jewel embedded on it that matched the platinum necklace. It was a very skillful design. The color of the jewel was extremely beautiful. Under the light, it was like the deep blue sea, and the refraction made it seem dazzling.
“How pretty…” Lin Xiaojuan was astonished. “Did you make it?”
