Part-1, "Tangyuan brat"
Its been a while since they had a picnic.. time flies fast.. tangyuan is already eight years old.
Ning Xi stood watching her kids play ball with their dog on the field. They bought a puppy when they went vacation a year back. Tangyuan wouldn't leave the pet shop and was very stubborn.. bratty as usual.
Lu Tingxiao reluctantly agreed and gave heavy instructions that only tangyuan will care for it and no one should help her. And he warned tangyuan, If she fails to do so her puppy will be sent away. Tangyuan being the brat she was, didn't think much of it.. she just wanted a puppy!
Actually, Lu Tingxiao didn't have any problem getting a puppy for her. He actually thought it would be good for tangyuan to raise one so she would learn responsibility. But it will only work if she takes it seriously and care for the puppy.
Kids are usually like that.. they cry and act stubborn till they are given what they ask for and later they lose interest and leave it.. only for parents to take care of it helplessly.
Lu tingxiao wanted to avoid such a situation and make tangyuan to take responsibility for it. After all its a living thing not some toy.
As expected, they did have some problems initially.. tangyuan tried to escape little things like taking woody for walks or feeding him.. she would give excuses about having some work and order maids to do it. when nothing worked she would go to Lu Jungli's and play same tricks or leave woody in his home for days.
If someone asks where woody is, she would naturally say that her second uncle wanted to play so she lend her puppy for her dear second uncle.
Lu tingxiao still saw through all her excuses and kept strict watch on her. As she couldn't find any more excuses to escape work and along with her father's warnings that he would send woody away.. to someone who would love and take better care of woody, She started to take care of his daily routine and finally adapted to that lifestyle.
Waking up early to take woody for walks and feeding him on time. She even took him to dog training classes regularly, ofcourse along with her big brother, little treasure. With in six months, changes could be seen in her lifestyle. There was finally some discipline.
Ning Xi looked at her children with happiness and pride in her eyes.
