It was finally Friday. Outside the kindergarten, it was already packed with parents waiting to fetch their child. After all, it was the first time their child had left their side for a prolonged period and most parents only had one child. It was not only the children who longed to see their parents, their parents missed them too. Hands filled with delicious food and drinks, the eager parents looked longingly at the kindergarten exit.
Once the school bell rang, the children from each class lined up neatly and followed their respective teachers to the kindergarten exit. However, the second they saw their parents and grandparents waiting outside, all hell broke loose as the children rushed towards their parents.
Arms wide open, the children dashed towards their parents and hugged them while saying, “I want to eat this… and that too. I want you to carry me.”
Slowly, as their requests were being met, the crowd blocking the gate of the kindergarten finally dispersed.
Shen Mochen and Peach held hands as they strolled towards the gate.
Peach, who was a head shorter than Shen Mochen, was taking the lead, while he followed behind her. She wore a bright smile on her face, as if she was holding the whole world in her hands.
Walking behind her, Shen Mochen’s brows were furrowed on his pretty face. He seemed to want to tug his hand away but hesitated for a long time before deciding to let her continue holding his hand.
Just then, Peach looked towards the kindergarten’s exit and caught sight of her godparents standing under an old banyan tree not far away. She caught their attention and beamed at them.
Swiftly, she dragged Shen Mochen and skipped towards them.
It was not the first time that Peach stayed over at Shen Mochen’s house. In the past, when her parents were away on a business trip, they would leave Peach at Shen Mochen’s house. Peach would be especially excited because she would not need to be separated from Shen Mochen, and could even sleep with him.
Unlike her, Shen Mochen would be extremely unhappy about this arrangement as Peach’s sleep posture was horrendous. The worst of it all was that she would insist on Shen Mochen cuddling her to sleep, and would wrap her limbs around him like an octopus.
There were countless times where Shen Mochen had to peel her away from himself and pull his limbs out of her grip after she had fallen asleep. However, every time he did that, Peach would suddenly start bawling, waking her godparents up.
During those times, Shen Mochen would pretend to be asleep.
At first, He Yue did not know what was going on with Peach and would carry her to comfort her and put her to sleep. Later on, she discovered the problem. Since then, she would simply pick Peach up and place her in Shen Mochen’s arms, leaving Shen Mochen feeling dismayed and feeling like Peach was about to crush him to death. However it worked, and Peach’s crying would stop immediately.
To sum it up, Peach was a pivotal and troublesome existence in Shen Mochen’s childhood, one that he could not get rid of.
Peach progressed together with Shen Mochen in kindergarten, from Lower Kindergarten all the way till Upper Kindergarten.
Finally, Shen Mochen turned seven years old and could attend elementary school.
However, it was not possible for Peach to follow him to elementary school as the elementary school was stricter than the kindergarten in enforcing their entry requirements.Peach cried for several days at home, staring at her parents with wistful eyes, but to no avail. She still had to obediently attend Upper kindergarten every day.
In contrast to Peach’s sorrow, Shen Mochen was thrilled to be finally rid of his little follower.
