Chapter 92: Lady Chen (1)
Whoa. This question was beyond her capabilities to answer.
Su Yaya had never thought of asking him this question. He was the male lead in the book while she was a cannon fodder. It wasn’t up to her to ask about his whereabouts. She knew that very well and understood their relationship as well. She would definitely not overstep her boundaries.
But since Chen Xiuqi had already asked this, if she didn’t comply, it wouldn’t look good on her. Chen Xiuqi might be upset because of this. It’s better to follow along with what he wants so that he willbe pleased.
Therefore, Su Yaya took her own advice and asked, “Hubby, what have you been busy with? You didn’t even respond to my messages.”
Unsure whether it was because she had great acting skills or that Chen Xiuqi’s attention wasn’t on this conversation at all, but he couldn’t tell what he had asked before so she didn’t have to answer his question. He hugged her tightly and said in a bit of an upset tone, “I went to see my mother over these past few days.”
His mother? Lady Chen?!
Su Yaya was shocked. When she was reading the novel, it didn’t talk about the Lady Chen. She thought it said that Chen Xiuqi’s parents had divorced while he was in his teens. Chen Xiuqi and Lady Chen didn’t have a good relationship and haven’t seen each other for many years. The novel didn’t talk much about Lady Chen.
However, she transmigrated to the beginning of the novel. There was a possibility that the situation right now was different from the original novel. Chen Xiuqi went to visit his sick mother which meant that Chen Xiuqi and Lady Chen’s relationship wasn’t as poor and bad as described by the novel. At the very least, Chen Xiuqi cared about his mother. After all, it was clear he was worried about picking up the call that morning. His expressions couldn’t hide his worry.
“Is your mother ok?” After Chen Xiuqi picked up the call that day, his face seemed unwell. Plus, he left in a hurry afterwards. Su Yaya guessed that something must’ve happened to Lady Chen, which was why she was asking right now.
Chen Xiuqi looked at her and revealed a look of displease. Su Yaya saw his gaze and her heart pounded. She immediately reacted and changed the way she addressed the question, “I meant how is our mother now?”
This man loves to argue over small things. It was just a sentence but he would glare at her as if she had done something incredibly bad. Was he trying to say that his mother wasn’t his mother anymore because of what she was saying? Plus, they were only married by contract. Everyone knew this. Could she change the truth just by changing the way she addressed Lady Chen?
Psh — Immature!
Su Yaya wanted to roll her eyes but taking into account of Chen Xiuqi’s feelings, she endured this.
Thankfully she did and Chen Xiuqi hadn’t seen her either. Otherwise, who knew how angry he could be because Chen Xiuqi was very worried for his mother right now. Although he and his mother had separated for numerous years, blood was thicker than water. It was impossible for him to not be worried.
“She’s sick. She suddenly fainted this morning. At the beginning, we thought it was a chronic sickness and that frightened everyone. Thankfully, we brought her to the hospital in time. After having a specialist look over her condition, they were positive it wasn’t her chronic sickness acting out but a very serious cold.”
Just by recalling this, Chen Xiuqi frightened himself. If his mother didn’t just have a serious cold but the chronic sickness or even a more serious illness, he really couldn’t forgive himself if he arrived there a moment too late and couldn’t see his mother. He couldn’t forgive himself for the rest of his life.
“Actually when she divorced my father, I hated her. At that time, I had just finished taking my college entrance exam and got the highest score for the sciences. I thought that since I had such great scores, she would be very happy for me. What a pity that she wasn’t. She just said that I was outstanding, then moved out of the Chen Family household.”
“Back then, I knew she and my father didn’t have a great relationship, but I didn’t want to face this fact. I lied to myself and hoped that their relationship would improve like in the past and we would all be together. But looking back, I realized that it was just a one-sided wish.”
“They quickly finished handling the divorce procedure and my mom left without saying anything. She hasn’t visited me once all these years and I hated her a lot for that time. I always thought that she was coldhearted and ruthless, abandoning me. Was I not her son?”
“Up until recently, we never saw each other. She has grown older but was still as beautiful as before. She was also very concerned for me. I finally realized that the hatred and resentment I held for her in the past meant nothing now. I just want her to live a good life.”
Su Yaya silently listened to him and then patted his hand. She comforted him saying, “Don’t worry. Thankfully there aren’t any major problems. She just needs to take her medicine, be put on IV and she’ll be fine in a few days. She won’t feel good if you keep on worrying for her. Your mother should be fine now, right?”
