Hello dear readers, I’m back. I apologize for the lack of updates, my whole family came down with gastro except me. Anyone who suffered from gastro before would know how horrible it is, imagine a 8 month old baby suffering this, vomiting their guts out until their dry retching… one very unhappy baby. >=/ I was so busy taking care of everyone with the lack of sleep, by the time I had time to rest I choose to sleep.
Chapter 45: Young Mrs, why don’t you eavesdrop?
The next day, it was the weekend.
Because of Lian Anna’s stimulation from last night, Du Lei Si didn’t sleep well all night, suffering from sleep deprivation, she until fall asleep until the wee hours in the morning. When she woke up the next morning, it was already nine o’clock.
Rubbing her sleepy eyes, she habitually looked to the left and discovered that the President was already gone.
He must be in the study, busy working on documents. Du Lei Si thought of this and quickly got up to wash her face and brush her teeth before making her way downstairs.
Downstairs, there was already breakfast on the table, and Aunty Wu waiting.
“Good morning, Young Madame,” Aunty Wu said, smiling and greeting her.
“Good morning,” Du Lei Si nodded, and suddenly felt a slight headache, it was probably due to not sleeping well last night.
“Young Master left breakfast for you, you should eat it while its hot.” Aunty Wu said, placing a hot bowl of red bean porridge in front of her.
While sipping the porridge, Du Lei Si suddenly thought of Lian Jun’s illness and asked: “Aunty Wu, did your Young Master eat breakfast today?”
Aunty Wu nodded: “He has eaten, but only very little.”
He only eaten very little? It seems his health is still very weak, Du Lei Si’s heart could not help but ache, she wanted to go to see him, she simply said: “Then do you know… where he is at the moment?”
“Young Master is currently in the study with Madame.”
The President was in the study with his mother? Du Lei Si’s heart was slightly surprised, after all, yesterday Lian Jun didn’t get along with his mother that well, they seems to have an invisible barrier. However the President was unwilling to tell her exactly what happened, so her head was still in a fog.
Du Lei Si was in a dilemma for a moment, her eyes suddenly swept to Aunty Wu’s side.
That’s right, why did she need to ask the President, she can just ask Aunty Wu!
So she mysteriously beckoned towards Aunty Wu, and asked in a low voice: “Aunty Wu, I want to ask you something ah.”
Aunty Wu originally had a temper to gossip, thus seeing Du Lei Si’s sudden mysterious appearance, she also discarded their relationship between master and servant, quickly made her way over: “Young Madame, what did you want to ask ah?”
“Your Young Master and Madame…. their relationship is not very good, right?”
“Young Master and Madame?” Aunty Wu thought and helplessly shook her head, “Young Madame, regarding this problem you have to ask old Yu, when I arrived in this family, Madame have already move abroad.”
“Old Yu ah?” Du Lei Si thought old Yu’s non-gossip type of face, she shook her head, “I think old Yu is such an honest and righteous person, he will not say anything.”
Aunty Wu was embarrassed: “Young Madame, do I not appear honest and righteous?”
“….No, what I meant is that you appear like the type that’s doesn’t stick to trifles matters!”
“Really?” Being praised, Aunty Wu couldn’t help but be complacent and spoke her words without restrain: “Young Madame, if you really want to know what’s going on between Young Master and Madame, why don’t you sneak upstairs and listen to their conversation?”
Du Lei Si was influenced and embarrassed by Aunty Wu’s gossip spirit: “Is this possible?”
“Why can’t you? This is your home, Young Master is your husband, Madame is your mother-in-law. Since it’s yours, what’s wrong with occasionally listen to your husband and mother-in-law’s conversation??” Du Lei Si listened to Aunty Wu’s theories of “yours”, she froze for a long time before she felt that there is indeed some truth to it.
“But,” She also had some hesitation, “what should I do if they suddenly come out?”
Aunty Wu thought for a moment and said, “If they do come out, you can pretend you’ve lost your sense of direction.”
“What if my mother-in-law is displeased?”
“If Madame is displeased, then you should flatter her! Say she is beautiful and classy!”
“….” Du Lei Si still had her worries, “What if…..”
“Young Madame, don’t be so timid, if the worst comes to the worst I’ll accompany you!” Aunty Wu patted her chest unexpectedly she emitted the momentum of a superwoman.
“Really?” Du Lei Si was enlighten and suddenly felt she had a backer.
So, at the instigation of Aunty Wu, Du Lei Si has finally taken that wicked step. One old and one young, two like thief figures come their way upstairs and surreptitiously touched the library door.
At this time, Lian Jun was in the middle of negotiating with Lian Anna.
“You have grown up, it’s inconvenient for me to intervene your marriage, however I still have to advise you—— I think that woman is not suitable for Lian family.”
“Whether or not she’s suitable for Lian family I don’t know, I just know that she is suitable for me.”
“You clearly understand you represent the entire Lian family, one day you will grow tired of an ordinary woman like her, or she would get tired of you, such a marriage would not even be equal!” Lian Anna’s tone was somewhat heavy, seem like a painful topic was hidden.
“Don’t put your own emotional outlook on me.”
Lian Anna was stunned, she didn’t think that her own son would say such words, her eyes suddenly darken: “You’ll regret it.” she said.
“I never do something I’ll come to regret.”
Lian Anna gave a wry smile: “Your words and the words I said to your grandfather that year is exactly the same…..” As she said this she seemed to be lost in thought, her eyes began to go slightly red.
It was a very cold winter that year.
Lian Anna will never forget when she knelt in front of her father’s car, adjure him to agreed with her being together with Xiao Li Shi. The cold wind blowing in her face was bone chilling cold. In that wind, she knelt in front of the car for three whole hours until the wind made her feel unconscious, she still did not shed a drop of tear.
Later, her father was unable to dissuade his daughter and gave into her persistent, thus he agreed to their marriage, but only on one condition, Xiao Li Shi must marry into and live with the Lian’s family.
She also will never forget the day when Xiao Li Shi heard her father decision, his eyes shining showed the slightest hint of hesitation. She was young and frivolous thus she didn’t care, since childhood she always felt a sense of superiority, as long as she had a virtue of love, she can catch any man’s heart, with this thought just three years later, their marriage came to an end.
Lian Anna is a smart woman, as the time they spent together lengthen, she became more and more aware of hidden bitterness behind Xiao Li Shi’s smile. She admits he still loves this man, so she didn’t want to see him live so weary.
Instead of waiting for the other person to let go, why doesn’t she let go first instead? At least she can still maintain her dignity as a woman of the Lian family, thus she suggested the divorce.
Lian Anna didn’t think, even when she begged her father to agree to their marriage she didn’t shed a tears, yet after the signing of the divorce agreement and watching him leave, tears of regret fell.
It turns out falling in love with this man was a mistake, marrying him is also a mistake. That full of emotional trauma experiences told her that unequal marriage doesn’t run the distance, she have suffered heart aches so she doesn’t want to let her son also repeat such mistakes.
Lian Anna thought to this point and sigh before saying: “I know that since young you have resent me for leaving you alone and going abroad.” Her voice was very light, as if she lost the momentum from before, she was no longer the lofty Lian Anna.
“I never hated you.”
“You don’t have to comfort me.” Lian Anna gave a wry smile, “I’m aware of my own situation the best. What child doesn’t want their mother to accompany them, however I……” She said and began to choke.
Lian Jun watched the redness of his own mother’s eyes, something to say something when he suddenly remembered what Du Lei Si said last night: ‘What parent in the world doesn’t love their own children? I think yous should communicate, perhaps the misunderstanding will be lifted.’
Lian Jun said: “I don’t hate you, but if you want to explain, I will listen.”
Lian Anna was surprised, she didn’t expect that her son who always refused to listen to her own words would speak this way: “Would you like to listen to my explanation?”
“Yes, I’m willing.”
Lian Anna pulled herself together and summon up her courage, finally began revealing to her son the buried heart aches of her past decade…..
Let us put aside the exchanges of the mother and son for the moment, first look at one of two mouses at the wall outside the study door.
“Young Madame, can you hear anything?” Aunty Wu asked very seriously while poking Du Lei Si with her fingers.
Du Lei Si turned her head and asked with a face of frustration. “Aunty Wu, why is the sound proof in this study so good?”
Aunty Wu: “Well….. this is a mansion, of course there can not be bean curd residue engineering, right?”
“But isn’t this quality also a little too good?” Du Lei Si complained, she have tried to eavesdrop for so long, her waist is almost broken and even a fart couldn’t be heard, she even suspected whether the President is actually in the room.
“Young Madame, don’t get discouraged, where there is a will,there is a way, I believe you will certainly be able to eavesdrop!” Aunty Wu cheered for her on the side.
Seeing Du Lei Si’s dejected face, Aunty Wu suddenly had a brilliant idea, “Young Madame, why don’t I go to get you a stethoscope?”
Du Lei Si was embarrassed, Aunty Wu, do you think I’m 007?
While the two were discussing about the most convenient way to eavesdrop, Liang Liang’s very loud voice sounded: “Grandma! What are you doing here?”
Du Lei Si was startled by Liang Liang, since her body was leaning forward, it accurately hit the study room’s door.
After the loud bang, Du Lei Si, Aunty Wu, Liang Liang, including the two people in the study, were all shocked.
