Nangong Chun looked at her coldly.
“This child….” Song Jian softly said while stroking Nangong Jing’s silky hair, “Can you let me raise him?”
Nangong Chun knitted his brows, “For what reason?”
“Because…” Song Jian was left in stunned silence, on the brink of asking back, ‘His mother was killed by you, and you don’t seem to care about him. If you won’t allow me to raise him, what will happen to this child?’
The bewilderment etched across her face appeared to convey her thoughts entirely. Nangong Chun, with an impassive demeanor, stated, “He doesn’t deserve to stay in the same courtyard with Yue-er.“
“……” Song Jian suddenly became a bit unsure whether his statement was a disagreement or he just thought that a girl was much better than a boy. “He is also your child……”
Nangong Chun loftily retorted, “Do you consider anything that crawls out of any random woman’s belly as my child?”
Song Jian stared at him and said, “My Lord.”
“Have you ever heard your parents say such things?”
Nangong Chun fell into silence.
Looking at him like this, Song Jian gently spoke, “When I saw this child, I immediately thought he looked very much like you…… and, you are now deciding his fate.”
Her intuition told her that Nangong Chun was a person with a strong desire for control, so affirming his authority may be helpful in this situation.
“……” Nangong Chun remained silent for a moment before saying,” Which part?”
“Which part of him resembles me?”
“Well——” Upon hearing this, Song Jian turned around and carefully examined Nangong Jing before answering,” His eyebrows and eyes are very similar to yours.”
Nangong Jing, with anxiety in his eyes, clutched her sleeve nervously. Song Jian offered him a reassuring smile before turning her attention to Nangong Chun. After carefully examining his facial features, she ascertained, “Yes, his eyebrows and eyes indeed resemble yours very much. However, the contour of this child’s features is softer than yours. Your eyes are relatively narrow and long with a slightly raised outer corner. His eyes are a bit more round with a slightly drooping outer corner, resembling an innocent little dog…. He has a puppy eye1.”
Upon hearing such a meticulous comparison, Nangong Chun appeared to have grown somewhat intrigued. He directed his gaze toward Nangong Jing, though the child’s lowered head prevented him from seeing his face.
He furrowed his brow in displeasure and snorted coldly, “A dog… Since that’s the case, if you want to keep him, just keep him.”
Finally, Nangong Yue’s deliberately made boisterous one-month birthday banquet came to an end.
Song Jian naturally adopted Nangong Jing, who had just lost his mother, and brought him back to live with her.
The maid took him to bathe. After she finished combing his long hair and dressing him into new clothes, Song Jian couldn’t help but confirm that her earlier mistake, when she had taken him for a girl, was certainly not her momentary delusion.
Nangong Jing’s facial features were very delicate. Perhaps, because he was still young and hadn’t grown yet, it was even more difficult to distinguish his gender.
Song Jian crouched in front of him and said, “From now on, I will take care of you. My name is Song Jian, what’s your name?”
Nangong Jing answered with a feeble and timid voice, “… Nangong Jing.”
“Nangong Jing…” Although she was already aware of his name, Song Jian pretended as if she was hearing it for the first time and smiled,” Then, would it be alright if I call you A-Jing?”
“Then I……” Nangong Jing inquired tentatively, “Should I call you ‘mother’?”
“Hmm…… Only if you want to. It’s up to you.”
Nangong Jing remained silent, but he clenched his lips tightly. It was evident that he was unwilling to address another woman, who was essentially a stranger to him, as “Mother.”
Song Jian didn’t mind and smiled, “If you’re not used to it, just call me ‘Madam Song’“.
Nangong Jing obediently followed, “Madam Song.”
“Yes. Then, I’ll take you to the room where you’ll be staying.”
As they made their way to the room, she stole a glance at Nangong Jing, who had consistently kept his head bowed and stayed silent. She spoke softly, “I’m sorry.”
Upon hearing this, Nangong Jing lifted his head with a perplexed expression, seemingly asking ‘Huh? For what?’
“Because earlier, The Lord referred to you as a dog… I think it might be because I mentioned ‘puppy eyes’…”
She spoke to him with a hint of remorse, “I didn’t mean to belittle you… Puppy eyes is a term used to describe those innocent and cute eyes that look just like a puppy’s eyes… Ah, although it uses a puppy as a comparison, However….. it’s not meant to insult people. I just think you’re very cute.”
Nangong Jing stared at her and slowly blinked his eyes, “……Okay.”
He didn’t seem to care.
Song Jian stroked his head while smiling and sighed, “Good child.”
After escorting Nangong Jing to the side room where he would reside in the future, Song Jian returned to her room and resumed her embroidery.
——This is a skill she acquired from experiencing a particular task world, and she continued to practice it across various worlds, eventually turning it into a habit.
She was embroidering while pondering over how to resolve the task concerning Nangong Jing.
According to the script, after Nangong Yue was born, it seems that Nangong Chun did not have any more children, which means he only had one son and one daughter.
The script didn’t elaborately describe the condition Nangong Jing grew up in. It simply stated that he was the child of Yun Yi, who served as Nangong Chun’s maid. He possessed a gentle personality along with a remarkable talent for martial arts. His emotions toward Nangong Chun were very complex, primarily due to his mother.
The script did not mention that he was neglected as a child, nor did it specify the circumstances that led to his close relationship with Nangong Chun. Nevertheless, in an era like this, being Nangong Chun’s only son, it was highly unlikely that Nangong Chun would continue to ignore Nangong Jing indefinitely.
Perhaps it was after Nangong Chun discovered Nangong Jing’s talent and decided to cultivate him as his successor that the two deepened their connection. After that, Nangong Jing……
Recalling the sentence “His emotions toward Nangong Chun were very complex” Song Jian presumed that the underlying issue for Nangong Jing likely stemmed from the absence of love in his life.
If she wanted to break this pair of CPs, she may need to start from this point.
