The Male Protagonist's Daughter - Chapter 27.2
These bears weren’t seen regularly in smaller cities, and the other children from around the area came to Luo Shuyan’s house just to look at the teddy bear. It was a toy that any child would love.
Luo Shuyan really liked it too, but she felt conflicted.
This scenario matched what she saw in her dreams. In the second half of the story, the author spent some time describing this bear. It was described as the bear of the male protagonist’s daughter. After her death, one time, the female protagonist accidentally saw the male protagonist in a drunken state, crying while he hugged the bear. That was the first time the author described the brokenness of the male protagonist from the loss of his daughter from a third person’s point of view. He hadn’t been able to let go even years after his daughter’s passing. He’d never forgotten, ever.
The female protagonist once said, “If there was a way to exchange another person’s life for his daughter’s life, he would undoubtedly become a serial killer.”
This has nothing to do with Luo Shuyan.
She had accepted her fate, so she felt a lot calmer than before. She was still young, so she wouldn’t come into contact with many situations to prove that her father was “Luo Tianyuan” from the novel. So, she wouldn’t be able to figure out if the dreams she had were real.
Plus, in the novel, “Luo Shuyan” passed away a few years later, so she didn’t have to worry for the next few years. Thus, she saw no purpose about feeling anxious about this situation, she just had to be more careful in the future. If she had no way to avoid her death, then she’ll just leave it up to fate.
Song Qianjin came with good news for Luo Tianyuan. First off, Smile-yan’s fashion show from this year made more profits than the last, and they’ve built a firm foundation in Shen Zhen; It was possible for them to set up a branch in another city soon. Next, due to the fall of the Hong Kong stock market, many owners of small sized entertainment companies have fled the country. Song Qianjin managed to get in contact with the trainee idols from those companies, and he’ll be able to get them to sign under the company as soon as they have a branch there. Thirdly, he found a piece of unwanted land in Shen Zhen that was a little far out from the city center, and was able to purchase it at a price that’s lower than market value.
“I need you to go have a look at it,” Song Qianjin said and rubbed his nose. “You know me. I don’t have an eye for anything other than beautiful women.”
Luo Tianyuan had a good eye for things. All businesses that he had a good hunch about would end up successful.
While the two of them were talking, Luo Tianyuan heard the sound of keys turning. He hurriedly shushed Song Qianjin and whispered, “Shuyan is back. Don’t mention any of this to her, she doesn’t know anything yet.”
“After witnessing your decision, I can’t help but wonder if my parents are secretly rich too? I’m already a grown man, so it’s time for them to tell me the truth about their riches.”
Luo Tianyuan was about to throw the cup at his friend’s face after he’d made fun of him. “Shut it, enough. Shuyan is coming.”
When the two of them walked out from the study room, sure enough, they saw Luo Shuyan with her backpack.
When Luo Shuyan saw her father and Uncle Song at home, she asked, “Papa, did you get off work early today?”
Luo Tianyuan calmly replied, “Mn, I didn’t have much work to do today.”
Luo Shuyan noticed the file in Song Qianjin’s hand and her gaze landed on that for a moment. Before she managed to look away, her father said, “Didn’t I borrow a few hundred thousand to buy the car? I borrowed the money from Uncle Luo. I had him come over today to write down the loan acknowledgements.”
“Your Uncle Luo is such a good friend. He didn’t charge me interest, and he even paid off a few thousand for me. We need to thank Uncle Luo, if not, we wouldn’t have been able to buy this car.”
“…?” Song Qianjin was confused. ‘Loans? What is he playing at this time?’
If Luo Shuyan were clueless, hadn’t overheard the phone call, and didn’t know that the house in Jing City belonged to them, she would’ve believed her father.
However, she knew the truth now, so she felt odd.
She now felt that her father had the talent to become an actor.
He even managed to fool his own daughter!
Nevertheless, as a filial daughter, she couldn’t embarrass her father.
She turned in the other direction and bowed at Song Qianjin, who was still in a daze. She truthfully said, “Uncle Luo, thank you for lending money to Papa for him to buy a car. Don’t worry, Papa will definitely return the money to you on time.”
As the daughter of an ‘actor’, she couldn’t let her acting skills fail her. To express her gratitude, she poured tea for Uncle Luo, and even have him her favorite biscuits and sweets —
“Uncle Luo, try this! It’s so good, Papa bought it for me when he was working out station.”
“Uncle Luo, why haven’t you touched your tea? We have soda too, would you rather have some of that?’
‘… Sigh, when is this shameless person going to leave?’ Luo Tianyuan thought.
