"Xiao Zeng," Yul's mother said when they were leaving the next morning, making him look at her with confused eyes. Mrs Wang smiled sweetly, "Welcome to the family!"
Zeng looked at Yul to confirm if whatever he had heard was true. Yul nodded positively and Zeng felt he was going to burst into tears.
"Don't tell me you are going to cry, Zeng ge," Yul asked, seeing the droplets of tears collected at the brim of his eyes. Zeng dabbed his eyes with the pad of his palms. "I am just so overwhelmed," he responded, "I thought they wouldn't accept me and I am so happy they did. Thank you so much. It means a lot."
The other two people were touched by how much it meant to him. Mrs Wang patted his head, "You are such a lovely boy, Zeng-ah. How can we not accept you?"
Zeng only sniffled as Yul rubbed his back all along, not shying with showing his love in front of his parents. "Don't cry, Zeng ge. You know I hate it."
