The detention center was quiet. Yu Siyang sat on a chair in the interview room, waiting for the policemen on duty to bring Yu Zhongmin to the interview room. Xue Chengxiu and a lawyer who always had the right smile on his face stood behind him.

“Mr. Xue,” Yu Siyang called out in a low voice, and asked: “I remember that once the suspect is detained in the detention center, no one except his lawyer can come to see him.” Not to mention he is a criminal suspect. How could he take the initiative to ask others to come and see him?

Xue Chengxiu also lowered his voice and said, “You are a lawyer now.”

“Huh?” Yu Siyang was shocked, “Could it be…forged documents?”

The true lawyer next to him coughed and said with a smile: “Mr. Yu, there are some things that can’t be said clearly.”

Yu Siyang: “…”

If he had known it was so troublesome, he would not have come, and it also caused him to take a day off with Director Jin, which slowed the progress of the movie. He also said that it would definitely increase the expenses of the crew. Director Jin was already so poor, and he also increased the financial burden of the crew, which was really disappointing.

Moreover, he can guess what Yu Zhongmin wanted to say, so it actually didn’t matter whether he listened to it or not.

Yu Siyang had seen the materials given to him by the lawyer, and Yu Zhongmin and Yu Fang had been tried several times, and they were almost about to be sentenced.

The defendant Yu Zhongmin’s crime of misappropriating and embezzling funds from his brother’s company, and the amount is so huge that it cannot be defended, it was simply outrageous, if convicted, he estimated that the two crimes will be punished together, for which he will be sentenced to ten years, and all his property will be confiscated. Yu Fang was only the defendant for misappropriating funds, which carried a lighter sentence than Yu Zhongmin.

Yu Fang surrendered to his fate earlier than Yu Zhongmin. Since her brother and his family were destroyed because of her greed in the first place, she should bear the consequences now. It’s not that she doesn’t regret it, but now, regret is no longer useful.

However, Yu Zhongmin still didn’t give up trying to struggle, because he felt that he wasn’t the primary culprit, and he did not even get most of the money. The bulk of it was taken away by Xue Chengji of the imperial capital. Why should he bear the consequences and get all his property confiscated? How would his wife and son live in the future?

The days in the detention center were difficult. Yu Zhongmin, who was less than fifty years old, was originally a big fat man with a slick belly. During this period of time in the detention center, it was estimated that he lost 20 catties, and his hair also reduced. He became pale, the skin on his face was sagging, his eyes were drooping, and his eyes became muddy.

He followed the policeman on duty into the interview room and saw Yu Siyang sitting over there through the glass. His muddy eyes suddenly lit up. He was about to rush over without a word but was backhanded by the policeman on duty. He waited for him to calm down. Then he let him sit down.

“Siyang…” Yu Zhongmin picked up the phone and tremblingly called Yu Siyang.

Yu Siyang looked at Yu Zhongmin quietly for a moment, then picked up the phone and put it in his ear, and said, “What do you want to tell me?”

“Siyang, second uncle…I’m sorry…” Yu Zhongmin’s expression was very pained, and he grasped the phone tightly with one hand. Holding the phone, he pulled his hair with the other hand, “I’m sorry to eldest brother and sister, second uncle apologizes to you.”

Yu Siyang remembered that there was a popular TV series on Mary Sue[1] many years ago. The current situation was very appropriate.

“Yu Zhongmin, why are you telling me this, do you want me to give up recovering the property?” Yu Siyang said coldly, “Do you think it is possible?”

After the judgment, all of Yu Zhongmin’s personal property will be confiscated, but Yu Siyang did not believe that he would put all his eggs in a basket, and he was certain that most of his property had been transferred to his wife or son, and those properties were what Yu Siyang wanted to recover and that belonged to him.

Yu Zhongmin’s expression became stiff, and the pretentious pain was taken back. The look in Yu Siyang’s eyes through the glass became fierce, “Yu Siyang, that is your brother, the brother who is related to you, how can you force him to die?”

“Then when you were doing those things, have you ever thought that my father is your real brother?” Yu Siyang asked coldly: “You lied to me to sign the inheritance document and made me bear more than one billion dollars of debt. When I was in debt, did you ever think that I was related to you? Have you ever thought about whether I will be desperate enough to die?”

Yu Zhongmin’s nose flared, and he was panting, it was obvious that he was angry and anxious.

Since the Yu family went bankrupt and Yu Siyang signed the inheritance-that is, the debt document. Yu Zhongmin never saw his nephew again. The person in the impression was still obedient, who always had the appearance of being studious. The child has become completely unknown to him.

“Siyang, Silong grew up with you since childhood. Your relationship is the best,” Yu Zhongmin changed his strategy and played the emotional card. “Second uncle did something wrong and got the punishment he deserved, but Silong didn’t do anything wrong, he is only sixteen years old and has no money. How will he live in the future?”

“Then what did I do wrong?” Yu Siyang asked, “I was only sixteen or seventeen when something happened at home. Not only did I have no money, and you also caused me to bear huge debts. Why didn’t you think about how I would live?”

In fact, from another standpoint, Yu Zhongmin did everything possible to kill Yu Siyang for his son’s future life. It is really pitiful for the parents of the world.

Yu Siyang understands that he is dedicated to his son, but cannot understand and forgive him, and even feels sick that he is still trying to move him with affection.

What does it matter to him how Yu Silong will live in the future?! He is not Virgin Mary, he was so miserable that he cannot forgive others. Moreover, even the original boy would definitely not forgive these people.

Yu Silong had a good relationship with the boy?

Don’t tell jokes, at least since he woke up in the boy’s body, this “good relationship” cousin never visited him or even gave him a little help.

Yu Zhongmin saw that Yu Siyang couldn’t be moved by his family, so he stopped making unnecessary efforts.

He wanted to say two vicious words to disgust and reprimand Yu Siyang, but he didn’t expect the lead to be taken by Yu Siyang, “Wasting my time, Yu Zhongmin, you should accept reform in prison and behave, as for the people outside. You can’t control what you want in life.”

Yu Siyang looked at Yu Zhongmin’s eyes like he was a mouse in the gutter. After saying this, he put down the phone and left the interview room.

Yu Zhongmin stared at the thin back of the young man in a daze. It wasn’t until the policeman on duty came to take him back that he recovered, put down the phone, followed the policeman on duty and walked out of the interview room, his turbid eyes flashing sharply.

After coming out of the detention center, Yu Siyang’s mood was obviously not very good. No matter who it was who was so disgusted by others, his mood would not be any better.

Xue Chengxiu was speechless during the whole process, and he was also in a bad mood.

He guessed what Yu Zhongmin wanted to say to Yu Siyang. Originally, he wanted to conceal this matter and prevent his child from seeing Yu Zhongmin, but then he felt that this is after all about Yu Siyang, and he should decide what to do. Instead of deciding anything for him under the banner of “being good for him”, this is the most basic respect for people.

After seeing Yu Zhongmin, Xue Chengxiu regretted it again. Yu Zhongmin was so disgusting, and every word was just sprinkling salt on Yu Siyang’s wound.

“Yangyang, let’s go home.” Xue Chengxiu shook Yu Siyang’s hand and comforted him silently.

Yu Siyang shook his head and smiled, indicating that he was okay.

The lawyer who was smiling throughout the process nodded in respect to the two of them, then opened the door of the car he had driven, started the car, and left first.

Xue Chengxiu and Yu Siyang also got in the car, being driven by bodyguards.

Although Yu Siyang said along the way that he was fine and was not disgusted by Yu Zhongmin, he went into the kitchen as soon as he arrived home and took the butter and eggs out of the refrigerator. Obviously, he was still unhappy.

Xue Chengxiu knew about Yu Siyang’s habit a long time ago. When he was happy, he liked to go to the kitchen to make good food, and when he was upset, he also liked to go to the kitchen to make good food. They were all venting his emotions.

“What are you going to make?” Xue Chengxiu took off his jacket and rolled up the sleeves of his shirt, as if he was coming to help…cough, to cause trouble.

Yu Siyang was not happy, and he didn’t care about Mr. Xue coming to the kitchen to make trouble. He put the softened cream in a bowl and added fine sugar into Mr. Xue’s hands and asked him to beat the cream until it became loose and white. Then he took another bowl, beat the eggs in, mixed with an appropriate amount of fine sugar, and then added low-gluten flour to the egg mixture.

After several times of destroying the kitchen, Xue Chengxiu has mastered the new skills of “from the basic preparations to guess what kind of food his child will probably want to make”, so he said, “Making biscuits?”

Yu Siyang was taken aback for a moment, and then nodded: “Yes, also making almond shortbread[2].”

Xue Chengxiu handed over the whipped cream, took out the almond, and asked, “What should I do with the almonds?”

“First soak in water and then drain them.” Yu Siyang endured but couldn’t hold back, and spat out: “Mr. Xue, if you can combine theory with practice and enhance your hands-on ability, you will definitely become a celebrity chef.”

Xue Chengxiu laughed and slapped Yu Siyang’s forehead with his fingers.

Yu Siyang poured the well-mixed egg batter into the whipped cream, then mixed it again, slowly sifting in some flour while mixing, and when Xue Chengxiu drained the almonds, let him put the almonds in and stirred well. He then kneaded the whole dough into strips, wrapped it in plastic wrap, and put it in the refrigerator.

After the dough was frozen hard, he took it out and sliced it, put it in the oven, and baked it at 180°C for 20 minutes before he took it out of the oven.

The scent of the almond bread contained the fragrance of almonds. The taste was crisp and refreshing, but not very sweet. Both Mr. Xue and the Mu Mu liked this kind of bread.

When the dough was frozen hard, Yu Siyang took out the butter to soften it, added fine sugar, and gave it to Mr. Xue.

Mr. Xue was very cooperative and brought the cream over with the cook machine.

——It seems that my child’s mood has not improved yet.

The whipped cream was taken by Yu Siyang, he added the beaten egg mixture and mixed well, then slowly sifted low-gluten flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, and baking soda powder with a sieve. After fully mixing, it became a dough again.

This time the dough did not need to be frozen in the refrigerator. It was directly divided into small balls, pressed in the middle of the balls with the thumb to make a depression, and some crushed walnuts were sprinkled around the depression, then it was put to bake in the oven.

After baking, the heat melted the dark chocolate liquid in the piping bag and squeeze it into the depression in the middle of the biscuit. After the dark chocolate liquid cooled and condensed, the chocolate cookie[3] was ready.

Thanks to the addition of cinnamon powder, the cookie had a little bit of spicy aroma, mixed with a rich chocolate flavour, and a little bit of walnut on the crispy cookies made the taste richer.

After the chocolate cookies were baked, Xue Chengxiu took one and threw it into his mouth, and asked casually: “Why did you make so many biscuits?” Can you finish eating?

“I’ll take it to the crew tomorrow and share it with everyone.” Yu Siyang explained: “I took a day off today, which delayed the progress, and I was a bit sad.”

Xue Chengxiu: “…”

He thought these little cookies were made deliberately to give to him, but he was so apathetic?

Xue Chengxiu felt a little sad, but Yang Yang didn’t take him to heart.

“I’ll make you a new dish later. It’s definitely something you haven’t eaten before.” Yu Siyang busily cut open the long-frozen dough in the refrigerator and said with a smile.

Xue Chengxiu instantly felt that he was cured again.

——My family, Yangyang, really values me the most.
