Chapter 91: This Is Quite Good

Of course, Uesugi Kiyoshi has parents.

However, before he crossed over, his parents had been sent to work in Europe by the company they belonged to.

During this time, although Uesugi Kiyoshi's reputation grew bigger and bigger, eventually becoming well-known even in Europe as someone who can stop a child from crying, the two of them never had the intention to come back, not even a phone call, continuing to work peacefully there until today.

Were the previous relationship with his parents that bad?

Curious as he was, Uesugi Kiyoshi was actually quite relaxed. He truly didn't know how to interact with the parents of this body, nor whether his flaws would be discovered – they surely would, after all, they had been a family for over a decade!

Yet now they had unexpectedly returned!

"Where are they now? Are they willing to see me?" Uesugi Kiyoshi asked with determination.

"They are in your former home, that villa. Please rest assured, the furniture that had been sold before has been repurchased and the floor tiles have been laid flat. As for whether they are willing or not..."

Hoshimi Rie blinked her eyes, feeling very confused.

"Between parents and children, what could be inconvenient?"

Since that's the case, it wouldn't be quite right for Uesugi Kiyoshi to not go over.

Sitting in the car, he held a group photo he found in the corner, carefully looking at it over and over again.

Seeing this, Hoshimi Rie couldn't help but be reminded of her deceased parents, her eyes getting moist.

"You must be very excited, Mr. Uesugi... to be able to reunite with your parents soon, that's wonderful."

"Oh? Yes, yes..."

After finally capturing his parents' appearance, Uesugi Kiyoshi returned to his previous residence.

It was said to be a villa with almost a hundred years of history, but because of its age, it wasn't very comfortable to live in. After striking it rich, Uesugi Kiyoshi moved to a new place and never returned.

They walked into the living room of the villa, where two people were already standing. They turned around at the sound of footsteps. The man looked a lot like the boy, he must be father Uesugi Masayo, and the elegant woman beside him was Uesugi Kiyoka, his mother.

"Please sit, Kiyoshi," Uesugi Masayo said.

The family of three sat around the dining table, but it didn't feel like a long-awaited reunion.

Uesugi Kiyoshi was too afraid to speak, the more he spoke, the more mistakes he made. His parents also seemed unsure, they just exchanged glances.

After a while, Uesugi Masayo finally spoke up and asked, "Kiyoshi, how have you been lately?"

"Um, okay..." Uesugi Kiyoshi replied.

Then there was a long silence.

Hoshimi Rie finally spoke up, easing the awkward situation.

"How are uncle and aunt doing in Europe?"

"It's great," Uesugi Kiyoka said with a sigh of relief, "The company provided a nice place to stay and generous benefits, it feels just like a vacation!"

"You may not know this, but Mr. Uesugi arranged all of this," Hoshimi Rie explained with a smile, "Even though he couldn't go to Europe, he has always been concerned about you all. Luckily, we are finally reunited, let's celebrate together!"

After a drink, the atmosphere seemed to become more harmonious, Uesugi Masayo asked, "By the way, Kiyoshi, I heard about your successful career over there."

"The word 'successful' doesn't even begin to describe Mr. Uesugi's career!"

As Mr. Uesugi's assistant, Hoshimi Rie was very skilled in all aspects of the company's operations, and immediately detailed Uesugi Kiyoshi's achievements for the two of them.

Listening intently, the mouths of Uesugi Masayo and his wife grew wider and wider. While they had heard a lot from their colleagues, they never imagined that the reality would be even more exaggerated than they had thought.

"Even if Mr. Uesugi wanted to become the emperor now, it would only be a matter of words," concluded Hoshimi Rie.

Uesugi Masayo looked at his wife and asked, "What if, I mean what if, Kiyoshi died in an accident, what would happen?"

Hoshimi Rie looked puzzled, but after a moment of thought, she replied, "The whole society would probably collapse completely, after all, who else has the intelligence and courage of Mr. Uesugi?"

"Yes, yes..."

After quickly finishing dinner, Uesugi Kiyoshi invited them to move to a new place. He had arranged for a more comfortable villa, but Uesugi Masayo refused.

"It's been a long time since I came back. I want to stay here for the night and go tomorrow, is that okay?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi naturally agreed to this request.

......

After sending Uesugi Kiyoshi and his entourage, along with the room full of bodyguards and subordinates, Uesugi Masayo finally relaxed and slumped to the floor.

"How much time is left before the agreed time, Kiyoka?"

Uesugi Kiyoka held her chest, nervously looking at the clock on the wall, "Five minutes left, darling, our son will be here soon!"

Uesugi Masayo nodded, took out a cigarette pack from his pocket, but his fingers were shaking so much that he tried several times but couldn't light the cigarette.

"I am thinking..."

"Help! Save me!"

Suddenly, a cry for help came from outside the mansion, it was their most familiar sound.

Uesugi Kiyoka was shocked and pale, "Honey, it's Kiyoshi!"

They rushed outside, under the dim street lamps, the couple was surprised to see that Uesugi Kiyoshi, who should have left, was now stuck on the mansion's exterior wall with only his upper body exposed.

If you look closely, you will notice that this Uesugi Kiyoshi looks a bit younger.

"Kiyoshi! What's happening?"

Uesugi Masayo was sweating heavily, thinking of a possibility, "He didn't successfully pass through the different dimension, and due to overlapping with the wall, he has been assimilated into it!"

"Then let's quickly help pull him out!" Uesugi Kiyoka grabbed Uesugi Kiyoshi's hand and tried hard to pull him out, but his body was still being slowly engulfed. "Honey, come help!"

Uesugi Masayo lit a cigarette, motionless.

"It's pointless, Jiehua. Once assimilated, there's no way to recover. And don't you think things are fine the way they are now?"

"...What are you saying, dear?"

"We intended to kill our own selves and Kiyoshi in this world, but only succeeded halfway before being interrupted by a minister. Now it seems Kiyoshi survived a great danger but lost his memories... Since things turned out this way, why not accept it? This world's Kiyoshi is fine as he is, isn't he?"

"Thank you for the praise!"

The voice from behind made the three of them freeze in place. Uesugi Masayo turned his head, only to see that it was Uesugi Kiyoshi.

"But I don't want to acknowledge a thief as a father. Surrender now, the murderer from another dimension!"
