Ge Junjian did not bellow at Ge Xuan because the man thought that he had already wronged his son. He admitted that he was busy with the military back then and rarely made time to care for his family. His ex-wife had left with another man and divorced him because of this.
It was due to the same reason that Ge Xuan resented his birth father Ge Junjian.
When he left to study overseas and what he did after that, including making friends with a bunch of delinquents, Ge Junjian took no part in getting to know him—because he felt guilty about Ge Xuan.
Consequently, Ge Junjian went along Ge Xuan’s wishes and demands since he was a child and had never scolded him.
If Ge Xuan had not said something so harsh this time, Ge Junjian would not even use that tone on him.
Ge Xuan stared back at his father in disbelief that the man had berated him over Qin Yirou when he had never admonished him all these years.
“You’ve changed! You’d never scolded me before!” Ge Xuan glared at Ge Junjian resentfully, unwilling to even address him as “dad”.
To the young man, Ge Junjian had never taken care of the family in the past. After his mother had an affair, Ge Junjian divorced her without much fuss. Ge Xuan thought that he had it worse than everyone else all his life. That was why he ought to relish in Ge Junjian’s guilt toward him—he should let his father wallow in his regret.
Truthfully, there were plenty of people who thought like Ge Xuan.
Ge Xuan turning himself into a hooligan-wannabe or his self-abandonment—what he was doing only demanded one thing, that was for Ge Junjian to regret. He wanted Ge Junjian to see that his past action had forced his child into someone he should not have become.
He, Ge Xuan, had become like this all because of Ge Junjian!
“Hah, as expected. It’s just like what people say. The mistress has all the say when she steps up in place!”
“I won’t acknowledge a shameless vamp like this! I have no sister either! My parents gave birth to only me!” Ge Xuan shouted at Ge Junjian with hatred brimming his gaze.
“Shut up!” Right after the young man’s bellow, Ge Junjian threw his bowl filled with rice and dishes toward him before Yun Jian did anything.
This was the first time Ge Junjian got furious and physical with Ge Xuan.
The insult of a vamp leaving Ge Xuan’s mouth left and right had completely enraged Ge Junjian. He called Qin Yirou a vamp and a mistress; to be honest, Ge Junjian could no longer take it.
Qin Yirou was someone Ge Junjian had set his heart on, which meant that he was certain about her being the one he would spend the rest of his life with for better or for worse.
Hence, even if it were his son who he had always tolerated, Ge Junjian disallowed him from insulting her like that.
Clink-clank! Clink-clank! The bowl drew an arc across the air before it hit Ge Xuan with a heavy thud.
The young man did not avoid it as he stood watching the bowl leave Ge Junjian’s hand and fly toward him, finally hitting him with the rice inside it spilling on him. Ge Xuan was stunned from the strike.
He had always thought that his father, Ge Junjian, felt immensely guilty toward him and would endlessly tolerate him now and forever. Yet, since he stepped into the house just now, Ge Xuan felt that he no longer belonged to this home when he saw Ge Junjian chatting and having dinner with Qin Yirou and others jovially.
Ge Xuan thought that he was deplorable.
“Ge Junjian, you’ll regret this!” he spat glaring at Ge Junjian before he ran out, disregarding even his friends.
“A-Xuan!” His friends went after him immediately.
