When Lu Boyan was arguing with Su Jian’an at Dingya Villas, Xu Youning and Mumu had just woken up from their sleep in the old city area.

Probably because of the approaching festival, the weather had been nice recently. In the past few days, the sky in City A had been so blue that people couldn’t help having positive fantasies.

Mumu, who had always been obedient, couldn’t help asking willfully, “Auntie Youning, I want to go and play in the park, is that okay?”

There was a public garden in the old city area. It was not very big, but it was well managed by the residents of the old city area. There were blooming flowers and flourishing greenery all year round. It was a good place for the residents of the old city area to take walks and get together.

Mumu had gone there once and happened to see a big gathering of the residents from the old city area.

The elderly liked to play with Mumu. Some children, especially little girls, were very willing to share their snacks with him.

The little boy probably felt the friendship and warmth in the park, so he had a very good impression of the park.

But he seemed to understand that his identity was special. He had never asked to go and play in the park. Today was the only exception.

Xu Youning’s heart softened and she could not refuse the little boy at all.

However, Kang Ruicheng had the final say, but his heart… might not be softened.

What was worse, Xu Youning had to listen to Kang Ruicheng now.

Xu Youning thought for a moment, squatted down, looked at the little boy and said, “I’ll take you to ask your daddy, okay?”

Mumu saw the look of embarrassment in Xu Youning’s eyes, so he did not pester her. Instead, he nodded obediently and said, “Okay, let’s go!”

Kang Ruicheng had just woken up, and was practicing boxing in the underground gym.

Yes, there was a semi-underground room in the old house. Only half of the room was above the ground.

Half of the wall above the ground was filled with a window that reached up to the ceiling, creating good ventilation and lighting for the room.

Kang Ruicheng liked to practice boxing with human opponents. Xu Youning had also acted as one of his opponents before, and his attacks and strength were too much for her. After fighting once, she solemnly declared that she would never be his training partner anymore.

It turned out that Xu Youning had made a very wise decision.

Now, even if Dongzi was Kang Ruicheng’s training partner, it was obvious that he could not stand Kang Ruicheng’s attacks. Kang Ruicheng’s every move would force him to retreat.

Finally, Kang Ruicheng’s hook hit Dongzi’s chin and knocked him down.

Dongzi had already gotten a black eye. After Kang Ruicheng’s hook, blood also oozed out of the corner of his mouth and dyed his white clothing red, which looked a little shocking.

Mumu had never seen such a bloody scene. He covered his mouth and exclaimed, “Uncle Dongzi!!”

Only then did Dongzi notice Mumu. He forced a smile at Mumu, braced his hands against the ring to get up, shook his head, and said, “Mumu, I’m fine.”

Mumu did not believe Dongzi’s words at all. He looked at Xu Youning anxiously and kept stamping his foot, trying to get Xu Youning to stop Kang Ruicheng and Dongzi.

Xu Youning knew well that she could not stop the two hot-blooded and competitive men on her own.

She thought for a moment and squatted down to look at Mumu. “Daddy and Uncle Dongzi are men. This is a competition between them. Once the competition between men starts, it can’t be stopped unless the winner is decided. Mumu, do you understand what I mean?”

Mumu was stunned. After thinking for a while, he nodded and said, “Auntie Youning, do you mean that they will stop when either of them wins?”

“Yeah, Mumu is great!” Xu Youning gave the little boy an appreciative look. “That’s what I meant!”

The little boy was obviously being praised, but he was not happy at all. His bright eyes were full of worry. “But what if they get injured?”

Xu Youning patted Mumu on the shoulder and said, “Don’t worry. We have doctors.”

Mumu blinked in confusion. At this time, Dongzi was knocked down again. After more than ten seconds, he got up and made a “stop” gesture to Kang Ruicheng.

Mumu could not help jumping and shouting, “Daddy, Daddy, Uncle Dongzi wants to stop fighting! You can’t hurt him anymore!”

Kang Ruicheng wiped the sweat off his body, threw the towel aside casually, came over and said, “This is a boxing competition. I’m not hurting him. Do you understand?”

Mumu blinked and grabbed Xu Youning’s hand. He leaned against Xu Youning while rebutting Kang Ruicheng’s words. “But I clearly saw you hurting him!”

He was afraid of Kang Ruicheng, but he had to rebut his words.

Kang Ruicheng frowned, and Xu Youning saw a trace of anger gathering between his eyebrows.

Kang Ruicheng was used to being flattered. He probably could not stand a five-year-old child’s rebuttal.

Xu Youning suddenly felt that if things went on like that, maybe such a small thing would turn into a big deal.

She pulled Mumu over to her decisively and whispered in the little boy’s ear, “Didn’t I say that this was a competition between Daddy and Uncle Dongzi. Uncle Dongzi is not hurt, but ‘wounded in the competition’, so Daddy didn’t hurt anyone. Do you understand?”

Mumu rested his chin on his hand and looked at Xu Youning for a while. He reluctantly accepted her explanation and nodded. “I understand.”

Xu Youning breathed a sigh of relief and looked at Kang Ruicheng with a little pride in her eyes.

She could not wait to tell Kang Ruicheng instantly that children might be able to accept some things if those things were told to them in a different manner.

Of course, she would not say it out in front of Mumu.

Xu Youning gently shook Mumu’s hand and said, “Don’t you have something to say to your daddy? He’s not busy now, so you can tell him.”

Only then did Mumu think of this matter. He looked at Kang Ruicheng with caution and expectation in his eyes. “Daddy, I want to play in the park, is that okay?”

Dongzi looked up at the ceiling to floor window and smiled. “It’s a nice day today for strolling in the park.”

He admitted that he said this to help Mumu.

Apart from his wife and newborn daughter, Mumu was probably the only person in the world who cared about him.

Anyway, he should help this little boy.

Kang Ruicheng glanced at Dongzi with a look of warning and displeasure in his eyes. Obviously, he was dissatisfied with Dongzi for trying to help Mumu, so Dongzi had to look away.

Xu Youning coughed and said to Kang Ruicheng, “Mumu is the one who wants to go to the park. Even if you want to glare at Dongzi, you should answer Mumu’s question first.”

Kang Ruicheng looked at Mumu and saw the little boy’s expectant eyes. In the end, he said, “I’ll go with you.”

Visit for extra chapters.

Mumu could not believe that Kang Ruicheng agreed so easily and was even prepared to go with them!

The little boy’s eyes widened and he then looked at Xu Youning in disbelief.

Xu Youning was not surprised. Kang Ruicheng was willing to go with them because he did not feel easy about their going out alone.

Of course, there was no need to tell Mumu about this.

Xu Youning touched the little boy’s head and said, “Let’s have breakfast. And then, we’ll go to the park.”

“Daddy!” Mumu ignored the sweat on Kang Ruicheng’s body and rushed over to hug him. “I love you so much!”

Although Kang Ruicheng was a cold-blooded person, he could not help smiling slightly in the face of Mumu’s childish voice.

He looked at the little boy and said in a rare gentle voice, “You and Auntie Youning go to the dining room first. I’ll meet you after taking a shower.”

Dongzi was going home, so he went out with Mumu and Xu Youning.

Back on the first floor, Dongzi suddenly said, “Miss Xu, I wonder if you know that Brother Cheng agreed not only for Mumu’s sake, but also for you.”

Dongzi thought that if Mumu had been the only person who wanted to go to the park, Kang Ruicheng would not have agreed so quickly.

After all, it was not safe for Mumu and Xu Youning to stay outside the Kang family home.

However, recently, Xu Youning had been depressed because of her illness. Only when she mentioned the park did her eyes light up.

Kang Ruicheng probably wanted Xu Youning to bask in the sun.

Dongzi said it deliberately, for fear that Xu Youning did not know Kang Ruicheng’s intention.

Xu Youning smiled and said, “Dongzi, I know. But, according to Brother Cheng’s character… we’d better not talk about it publicly.”

“I understand.” Dongzi waved at Mumu. “Thank you for what you did just now. I’m leaving.”

Mumu was in a good mood now, and his smile became sweeter. He waved at Dongzi and said, “Goodbye, Uncle Dongzi.”

After breakfast, Mumu directly took Xu Youning and Kang Ruicheng to the park in the old city area.

It was a nice day today, and there were many old and young people basking in the sun. All of them came here with young children and the small park looked very lively.

Someone recognized Xu Youning and Mumu and greeted them warmly. “Miss Xu, is he your child’s father? He’s so good-looking. No wonder he could father such a good-looking child like Mumu!” After a pause, the old lady continued, “But he looks so serious.”

Since Kang Ruicheng’s birth, no one had ever dared to talk about him like this in his presence.

If this old lady knew who he was, she must have a death wish!

Kang Ruicheng’s face darkened slightly, and he had a cold and murderous look.

Unfortunately, it was winter now, and the outdoor park was cold. So, the old lady could not feel the threat from him, and just felt that he looked more serious.

The old lady smiled at Kang Ruicheng and said, “Young man, at my age, you will understand that many things are destined. So, no matter whether anything good or bad happened yesterday, smiling today is the most important thing!”

Kang Ruicheng did not listen to the old lady’s words at all, and his face suddenly darkened.

Xu Youning saw that Kang Ruicheng was about to get angry, so she quickly stood by his side and poked him with her hand, indicating that he should calm down.

In front of his subordinates, it did not matter how angry Kang Ruicheng was.

However, if he lost his temper here, it would scare the old people and children. Also, she did not want Mumu to see the bloodthirsty side of his daddy.

She had to stop Kang Ruicheng.
