Zhou Qiao Qiao doesn’t faint but she just shocks.
Ye Qing Xin holds her and takes her to sit down on the sofa.
Zhou Qiao Qiao watches Jing Si. Jing Si’s face, temper and gaze, are similar to Han Qing Qing, Ye Jun Dong’s first love.
The woman that she harmed……
Actually since that day Han Qing Qing was harassed, for a long period she kept on dreaming about her, about her coming to take revenge on her.
“She, who is she?” Zhou Qiao Qiao asks with her trembling voice.
All people looks at her expression, her expression looks like she is meeting with a ghost.
Ye Qing Xin looks at Jing Si. She doesn’t know why her mother’s respond so strangely. She just answers honestly: “She is Bo Yuan’s Gu Gu (Auntie).”
Maybe it’s only Ye Jun Dong that knows why Zhou Qiao Qiao can respond that way. He just keeps on being silent and doesn’t say anything.
Jing Si is somewhat unhappy. She is not happy that Zhou Qiao Qiao looks at her like she is looking at a ghost.
“You’ve met me?” She walks toward the sofa and looks at her coldly.
Zhou Qiao Qiao turns calmer.
Han Qing Qing’s voice is soft, but Jing Si is a bit coarse and strong.
Zhou Qiao Qiao sits straighter and says: “You look like someone that I know. I recognized you wrongly. I’m sorry.”
Looking that Zhou Qiao Qiao is okay, everyone is at ease.
Ji Yi asks everyone to take their seat.
Zhou Qiao Qiao as the bride’s side parent, she sits on the left side of Old Mister Jing.
Jing Suo Suo and Ye Lin are youngest ones. They sit at seats nearest to the door.
The wedding is arranged by Ji Yi. Old Madame Jing is old, she cannot arrange a lot of things. Jing Zong has two brothers. His marriage is somewhat broken, his one brother is single, only Ji Yi can help Old Madame Jing to arrange the marriage.
Ji Yi explains the wedding plan to Zhou Qiao Qiao.
“The wedding will be held on this Bo Wei’s hotel. I have listed the guests from the male side. Probably we need around fifty tables. As for the guests from the female side, please arrange it and let me know….”
Ji Yi keeps on talking but Zhou Qiao Qiao seems to not listening to her. Her gaze falls on Jing Si, who is sitting beside Ye Jun Dong. She also can notice Ye Jun Dong’s love gaze and action toward Jing Si. From time to time, he takes food to Jing Si’s bowl. Jing Si keeps on smiling at him.
“Ma?” Ye Qing Xin notices her mother’s strange attitude. She pats her shoulder: “Ma, are you okay>”
Zhou Qiao Qiao is not responding.
Everyone also notices her strange behavior.
Ye Qing Xin wants to say something else but her phone suddenly rings.
She answers it, it is Ye Qing Guo’s teacher.
Ye Qing Xin frowns. Ji Yi comes over: “Answer it, I will take care of you mother.”
“Thank you, San Shen.” Ye Qing Xin thanks her.
She comes out of the room and answers it.
Ye Qing Guo’s teacher just says with anxious tone: “Xiao Guo’s Jie JIe, is Xiao Guo with you?”
Ye Qing Xin is surprised: “What do you mean? Xiao Guo is not at school?”
“Yes Yes, the day before yesterday he was here and practiced with everyone, but this afternoon someone looked for her. That time it was during lunch, no one paid attention to her. We just noticed that he was missing around two o’clock. We cannot find her…..”
Ye Qing Xin is worried. “Why didn’t you call me that time? It’s been a long, what if something bad happened to him, can you take responsibility of this?”
The teacher cries: “I just thought that he was naught and running around to play. I thought I can find her…..”
The teachers tries to avoid the responsibility.
Ye Qing Xin’s eyes turn red: “Don’t you know how Xia Guo is? He always be good. How can he just run away? You…..”
She hasn’t finished her words.
“Jie Jie!” There’s suddenly Xiao Guo’s voice.
Ye Qing Xin is startled. She turns her body and looks Ye Qing Guo runs over from the private room beside.
“Jie Jie, you are really here!” Ye Qing Guo hugs her. His eyes are bright and he smiles so happily.
“Xiao Guo.” Ye Qing Xin is relieved. She just ends the call.
“Why are you here?”
“I bring him over.” Tai Shi Shi comes out from other private room. “You will get married. Both families are meeting each other. Shouldn’t Xiao Guo also appear? He is your family too.”
Ye Qing Xin looks at Tai Shi Shi and smiles. Her voice is fierce and unhappy: “Although it’s a bit unexpected but I need to thank you for your good intention. But Xiao Guo is insensible, he can easily deceived. Please don’t just take him away from the school as you wish. If this happens again, I call the police.”
Tai Shi Shi smiles: “No worries.” She looks at the Jing family’s private room: “You don’t bring him inside to meet Jing family?”
She continues: “Xiao Guo, your Mama is inside. Go inside.”
Ye Qing Guo doesn’t listen to her words, he looks at Ye Qing Xin: “Jie Jie, Mama is really inside?”
He is taller than ye Qing Xin.
Ye Qing Xin wants to speak again, but suddenly the door is opened. Ji Yi comes out: “Xin Xin, your Mama’s mood seems to be a bit strange.”
Ji Yi stops when she sees Ye Qing Guo.
She looks at the dim-witted big boy: “This is……”
Looking that someone asking about who he is, Ye Qing Guo just stands straight and bows down. He says politely and seriously: “A Yi (Auntie), I am Ye Qing Guo.”
Ji Yi: “…..”
He is related to Ye QIng Xin.
She looks at Ye Qing Xin with a bit of confusion.
Ye Qing Xin holds Ye Qing Guo’s hand: “He is my brother.”
Ji Yi keeps calm.
The time she comes out, she doesn’t close the door so everyone hears about this.
Jing Bo Yuan stands up and looks at Ye Qing Guo. His expression doesn’t change. He just hugs Ye Qing Xin’s shoulder: “Let’s get in, no need to worry.”
He looks at Tai Shi Shi. Tai Shi Shi notices his gaze and takes a step back.
Jing Bo Yuan’s hug makes Ye Qing Xin’s nervousness goes away.
She smiles at Ye Qing Guo: “Mama is inside. Go inside with Jie Jie, okay? There’re a lot of Ye Ye and Nai Nai inside, Uncle and Auntie too. You need to be polite okay? Don’t talk drivel. Don’t eat in a bad manner okay?”
Ye Qing Guo is happy to hear that his Mama is inside. He says simply: “Xiao Guo is a polite boy. Just like before I greeted A Yi, is it polite?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and strokes his head: “Yes, Our Xiao Guo is very polite.”
The door is closed. Tai Shi Shi is unhappy that her plan is not working. She just keeps thinking of Jing Bo Yuan’s gaze at her. She couldn’t help but to feel a bit scared.
She doesn’t do anything too over, he….. shouldn’t do anything to her right?
Inside the private room.
Everyone is astonished to see the sudden appearance of silly lad. They look at Zhou Qiao Qiao and Ye Qing Xin.
Ye Qing Guo looks at them. He is thinking about something.
“Xiao Guo, greet all the Ye Ye, Nai Nai, Shu Shu, A Yi. How did Jie Jie teach you?” Ye Qing Xin reminds him.
Ye Qing Guo pouts. He says: “Xiao Guo doesn’t know who I should greet first…..”
Zhou Qiao Qiao regains herself and looks at Ye Qing Guo. She is startled: “Xiao Guo, why are you here?”
Ye Qing Guo is smiling when he notices her. He calls after her: “Mama.”
Old Madame Jing could see that this big boy has an intelligence problem. He doesn’t look ugly but not handsome too.
“Nai Nai, I am Ye Qing Guo.” Ye Qing Guo once again hears someone asking who he is. He stands straight and bows.
His action is like a kid, but he also looks funny. His voice sounds lovely and innocent. He is like five or six years old boy. His greeting makes Old Madame Jing’s heart soften.
Leaving aside his problem, Ye Qing Guo is a likable boy.
Old Madame Jing suddenly smiles: “Good bye, come come, come here. Come to Nai Nai’s side.”
Ye Qing Guo is not afraid of stranger, he runs slowly toward Old Madame Jing’s side and he calls after her with his lovable voice: “Nai Nai.”
Old Madame Jing smiles.
Ye Qing Guo doesn’t forget about what Ye Qing Xin’s order. He calls after everyone in turn. The older ones he calls Ye Ye Nai Nai, the one is a bit younger Shu Shu A Yi. The last one as for Jing Suo Suo and Ye Lin. He also call Jie Jie and Di Di.
If he is five six years old, he should be a great one.
Old Madame Jing likes him. She directly calls the waiter to take a chair for him to sit down.
Ye Qing Guo doesn’t sit down directly, he looks at Ye Qing Xin and waits until Ye Qing Xin says to him “Sit down.” Then he just sits down beside Old Madame Jing, he sits down nicely. Old Madame Jing takes fancy of him, she couldn’t help but to grumble to Ye Qing Xin: “In the past did you treat him harshly? He really obeys your words and actions.”
Ye Qing Xin just smiles. She is moved and surprised.
She doesn’t think that Old Madame Jing can accept Xiao Guo easily.
Old Madame Jing accepts him, it leads to everyone else to hold their thought.
Jing Si bites her lips hardly when she sees how Old Madame Jing treats Ye Qing Guo.
The time Ye Qing Guo came inside, she could notice that something is wrong with him. She was expecting a good drama. But her expectation was wrong. It was a warm moment.
Jing Si looks at Old Madame Jing and couldn’t help but to criticize her silently: “Indeed older people have softer heart.
She thinks about the year, Old Madame Jing used a lot of violent ways to kick away her own eldest son (Jing Yi) and his lover.
Afterwards, the situation inside the room turns happier. Ji Yi discusses the wedding with Zhou Qiao Qiao, but she seems to be unfocus.
Old Madame Jing takes foods for Ye Qing Guo. Ye Qing Guo keeps on looking at Ye Qing Xin. He is waiting for Ye Qing Xin’s approval and he will eat.
He is too obedient that it makes everyone feels sorry for him.
Old Madame Jing glares at Ye Qing Xin.
Ye Qing Xin just says: “Nai Nai gives it to you so just eat it.”
Ye Qing Guo laughs and starts to eat it.
One of them asks. “Xiao Guo, your Papa?”
Ye Qing Xin is okay with this question, but Zhou Qiao Qiao starts to tremble. She looks at Ye Jun Dong.
Ye Jun Dong is calm like he is a stranger.
Yes, he indeed is a stranger.
They are unrelated. He is not her husband, also not her kids’ father.
She thought that she has let it all go. But actually the time she watches how he could be with someone that looks really similar with Han Qing Qing. Her heart starts to ache.
Ye Qing Guo calls after that someone and replies: “Ye Ye, my Papa is a superhero. He is saving the whole world so he doesn’t go home.”
He is so serious that everyone starts to laugh.
“Then when Xiao Guo grows up, do you want to be like your Papa and save the world?”
Ye Qing Guo doesn’t understand what everyone laughs about, he says: “Em! Jie Jie said as long as Xiao Guo is obedient and serious. Papa will take me to save the world. So Xiao Guo is very serious and obeys Jie Jie and Mama’s word.”
Old Madame Jing strokes Xiao Guo’s head: “Pitiful kid.”
Ye Qing Guo couldn’t understand it. She thinks that she really has pity on him. He shakes his head and says seriously but a bit foolishly: “Xiao Guo is not pitiful, Xiao Guo has Mama and Jie Jie…..”
“Puhh!” Zhou Qiao Qiao suddenly coughs out blood. Then she just faints.
Everyone is shocked.
Ye Qing Xin and Ye Qing Guo calls after her.
The happy dinner turns out to be most tragic moment.
At the hospital.
Ye Qing Xin paces forward and backward at the emergency room door. Her tears keep on falling down. She doesn’t have heart to worry about what Jing family members will think of her or her family. She just hopes that Zhou Qiao Qiao can escape this crisis.
She thinks whether her mother’s current condition is a result of her being tired of having a long journey? She clearly knows that her mother is unwell but she still asks her to come to Jing city.
If her mother just passes away like this, she feels that she cannot forgive herself.
Jing Bo Yuan calls Cheng Ru Yu and let him to arrange the best doctor to operate Zhou Qiao Qiao.
Zhou Qiao Qiao’s condition is critical, it’s too late to find a good doctor.
Before Cheng Ru Yu can find a good doctor, the light of the emergency room is off. The doctor comes out with his serious face. He apologizes: “I’m sorry, we have tried our best.”
Ye Qing Xin feels like she is attacked. She becomes disengaged from the reality.
She couldn’t hear anything.
Actually her mother is not really good toward her. She knows about it. Her mother loves Xiao Guo more. She also knows it, she even feels that sometimes she is present for taking care of Xiao Guo.
But for her, her mother is really important part of her life.
Her mother is gone, she feels like a grass that loses its root. She doesn’t know where will the wind blows her to? She doesn’t know where is her family.
This moment her face is pale. She could see the worries on Jing Bo Yuan’s face.
The time she wakes up, it’s already late at night.
She opens her eyes and looks at the cold white ceiling, she could smell the scent of disinfectant.
Jing Bo Yuan calls after her.
She turns her head to see him and smiles: “Bo Yuan, before I just had a bad dream. I dreamt that my Mama is gone. How can it be? This morning she just asked me whether I kept my necklace well. I said that I will treasure all my life….. oh right, where is my Ma? I want to find her. I suddenly have something to say to her….”
“Xin Xin…..” Jing Bo Yuan hugs her and stops her to get off the bed. “Xin Xin, don’t be afraid. You have me in the future.”
“I want to find my Ma. I have something to say to her…….”
Jing Bo Yuan doesn’t say anything and just hugs her tightly. He strokes her back.
This moment this time, there’s no word that can comfort her.
Ye Qing Xin cries: “It’s my fault right? If I don’t want to get marry, I didn’t let her to come to Jing City. Now perhaps she is sleeping peacefully at home. It’s my fault right?”
Jing Bo Yuan just hugs her and strokes her head.
Ye Qing Xin cannot stop her tear, she is blaming herself.
“Don’t blame yourself.” Cheng Ru Yu gets inside. He says honestly: “I just asked before. It’s already too late for your mother. Even though she is not here, it will also happen in two days. You should be happy that she is here. You can meet her for the last time.”
Ye Qing Xin covers her face and wails.
She cries for a long time and falls asleep.
Jing Bo Yuan let her lay down and covers her with the blanket.
He comes out with Cheng Ru Yu.
Cheng Ru Yu asks: “Did something happen at the dining table?”
Jing Bo Yuan asks back: “What?”
Cheng Ru is thoughtful: “Director Huang told met that Madame Zhou is having a psychological attack that she coughed up blood and died. She should be able to live for two more months. At least until your wedding. So what is your plan for the wedding?”
Jing Bo Yuan has his own plan.
“We hold the funeral first then after 49 days of mourning period, I and Xin Xin will register our marriage. We can delay the wedding next year. We can make it up after the kid is born. We don’t rush it.”
Cheng Ru Yu smiles: “You have a good plan.” He continues: “So for the funeral, where will it be held? Here or Jing city?”
Jing Bo Yuan says: “Let’s ask Xin Xin.”
After all it’s Ye Qing Xin’s mother. She should be the one that decides.
