Chapter 151: Her ‘Boyfriend’ (2)
Mother Su laughed and said: “We’re doing good. The air is better here, the water clearer, and all of the vegetables are freshly grown by the villagers. They taste much better than anything you can find in the city. Your dad’s health wasn’t very good before, but his cough hasn’t acted up even once since we moved here. We’ve both retired anyway and the retirement money is enough for us. There’s no reason for us to return to the city, so we decided that we’ll just settle down here.”
Su Yaya thought about it. It didn’t matter where they lived, as long as their bodies were healthy. “Okay, then. As long as you’re both happy.”
As Mother Su promised to take care of herself, the joy in her voice was evident. It had been a long time since she last shared such a normal conversation with Su Yaya. No matter what mistakes Su Yaya had made in the past, she was still her precious daughter. As a mother, Mother Su couldn’t help but worry and hope her daughter was living a good life on her own.
“All of our relatives know that you have a powerful boyfriend now. They keep calling me one by one, asking me to help their children find a job and whatnot. Some even said they want you to help them do some investments. Anyways, it’s all a bunch of nonsense. I told them I haven’t been in contact with you, so I don’t know when you might visit.”
Mother Su took a breath and continued, “Opportunities will come to those who have talent and deserve them. We should ignore them. When our family needed help, none of them lent a hand. When you were being slandered on the internet, so many of them were laughing at us. They think I don’t know about it. Despite knowing that those rumors were false, Su Xiaoxuan still came running over to cause trouble. When your dad heard about the rumors from her, his condition almost relapsed! Now that you’re doing better, she’s acting nice and pretending as if nothing happened.”
After hearing what Mother Su had to say, Su Yaya breathed a loud sigh of relief. She smiled and said in a sweet voice, “What you did was right, mom. Don’t mind those people.”
“Those are actually just small things. I just want you to live well. If your relatives come looking for you and asking you for help, you shouldn’t promise them anything.”
“Mom, I know what to do.” Su Yaya replied. Her relatives were indeed shameless. She was definitely not going to give them a good time if they ever came looking for her!
“How is your relationship with your boyfriend?” asked Mother Su.
Su Yaya glanced in the direction of Chen Xiuqi and said: “It’s alright.”
This response made Mother Su feel a little uneasy. She understood her daughter’s temper well and was afraid she would make bad decisions.
“Yaya, love has to be two-sided. Don’t be willful. If he treats you well, you should do the same for him. Of course, if he doesn’t treat you well or you realize you’re not compatible with him, then you should break up. Remember, when you’re in a relationship, you shouldn’t deceive each other or be half-hearted.”
Su Yaya was stunned and grumbled a little on the inside. Did Mother Su take some of the rumors on the internet to heart? But it was entirely impossible. If she ever cheated on Chen Xiuqi, he would be able to destroy her with the flick of a finger. Su Yaya didn’t even dare entertain the idea! After all, she still wanted to live a good, long life!
“Mom, don’t worry. None of those things will happen,” Su Yaya promised.
Mother Su was relieved but also afraid that her daughter would get angry. She quickly added, “‘I’m just mentioning it casually! I definitely believe in you, so don’t be angry, okay?”
From her cautious tone, it was easy to tell how strained their mother-daughter relationship was. Evidently, it was rare for them to have a normal conversation without her daughter getting angry.
Su Yaya also understood the reason well. The original owner had such a good mother, yet she didn’t know how to cherish her. She said, “Mom, I’m not angry. I’ve grown up and won’t act as I did before. If I do anything wrong, you can tell me directly. You’re the best, mom.”
It took a moment for Su Yaya’s mom to understand those words. When it did, Mother Su was ecstatic. “Okay, okay. My daughter has grown up.”
Su Yaya could feel her joy and gently responded with a “mhm.”
There was some hoarseness in Mother Su’s voice when she asked: “Yaya, when are you going to visit? Your dad and I miss you very much.”
Su Yaya thought about her recent work schedule and said to Mother Su: “I am a little busy right now, so I’ll visit when my workload is lighter.”
Mother Su happily agreed.
The two continued to converse for a while before hanging up.
Chen Xiuqi came over and asked: “Are you busy at work?”
“Hm?” Su Yaya looked up in confusion.
“If you can’t go back because of work, you can bring them here to play,” he said.
The author has something to say…
Chen Xiuqi: If you can’t go back because of work, you can bring them here to play.
Su Yaya raised an eyebrow: Want to meet my parents? Not so fast!
