Ye Qing Xin hasn’t responded when she heard it.
The family of four, isn’t it Tai Zheng Ting’s family?
She tries to recall Tai Shi Yun and Tai Shi Shi’s clothes. She asks Pan Yang: “The one that was hurt, is she wearing short pants or short skirt?”
Tai Shi Yun wears short pants, Tai Shi Shi wears short dress.
Pan Yang replies: “Short dress. Tell me, how can a father be so ruthless. What made him so angry that he wanted to kill his daughter. It’s too sinful. If she couldn’t be saved, I think the family will drift apart. The mother utters cries of anguish. I even feel sad for her….”
Ye Qing Xin looks at Jing Bo Yuan.
Tai Zheng Ting turns furious so sudden. It should be related to Jing Bo Yuan’s words.
Pan Yang asks someone to clean the blood up.
Ye Qing Xin asks him: “Why did… you tell Tai Zheng Ting that my Ma’s death is related to Tai Shi Shi?”
Jing Bo Yuan answers: “She had a bad intention, she should take responsibility for it.”
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t say anything. She understands Jing Bo Yuan. He wants to use Tai Zheng Ting’s hand to teach Tai Shi Shi.
In the past toward Tai Shi Shi, Ye Qing Xin didn’t have a bad or good impression. She thought that she was harmless but slowly she notices that she is not really innocent. Especially the time she deceived everyone and be together with Chen Shu An. Ye Qing Xin feels that she is not simple girl.
That time at the hotel, Tai Shi Shi suddenly brought Ye Qing Guo over. It’s clear that she had a bad intention.
Ye Qing Xin always acts in the same way as others treat her.
Tai Shi Shi was in accident. Although it’s more than her own evildoing, she gets the most serious punishment. But Ye Qing Xin cannot complain Jing Bo Yuan. Moreover, Tai Shi Shi can be like this, it’s because of Tai Zheng Ting’s action and also his familial teaching. It’s unrelated with Jing Bo Yuan.
They both return to the funeral hall.
Song Fu comes to the funeral too and takes someone with him. That someone is forty years old people. She guesses that he is a kind of director. Indeed that person burns joss sticks and bows down. He says few words of comfort with Ye Qing Xin and he starts to talk with Jing Bo Yuan.
Jing Bo Yuan takes that person out to chat.
Ye Qing Xin turns her head over to look around and watch them.
The time she is loss in thought.
“Xin Xin.” A familiar voice calls after her.
Ye Qing Xin looks over and notices Wen Ze Yan, who is smiling at him.
“Xiao Yan, come here.” Song Fu calls after him.
Wen Ze Yan burns the joss sticks, bows down and knocks his head.
Song Fu looks at Wen Ze Yan and nods.
In the past Wen Ze Yan was quite caring for Ye Qing Xin’s family. He helped the a lot. Even toward Ye Qing Guo. Song parents can see that he likes Ye Qing Xin. He is an outstanding and kind-hearted man. They both are good people, they thought that Ye Qing Xin will be together with him.
Who knows that afterwards Wen Fu (Father Wen) got into a problem, Wen Ze Yan has no way rather than marries Lu Jian’s daughter, he uses her help to help Wen Fu.
After giving his respect, Wen Ze Yan walks toward Ye Qing Xin: “I have something to say to you.”
He wants to have a chance to talk with her alone.
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Just say it.”
She feels that she has nothing to talk with him without anyone else.
Wen Ze Yan notices her coldness. He couldn’t describe his feeling. She used to find him to discuss thing, she used to follow him around and call after him “Ze Yan Ge Ge”. She used to be a girl that held his hand and strolled around. But he losses her.
He calms himself down. “This a big thing, why didn’t you tell me?”
Yesterday he heard the news that major and his secretary came to offer their condolences to an ordinary woman. He also heard the name of the deceased is Zhou Qiao Qiao. He asked for the address and just knew that it’s Ye Qing Xin’s mother.
Ye Qing Xin says calmly: “It’s not too late for you to know it now.”
“Xin Xin….” Wen Ze Yan takes a step closer and then clutches Ye Qing Xin’s little hand, he is stuffing in something inside her palm. “That year it’s my fault. I wronged you. We used to be together, I never give you anything. I regret that thing. I should be better toward you….”
Ye Qing Xin feels something inside her hand and smiles. She asks back: “So you want to compensate me? Or you are pitying us brother and sister to not have someone to depend on?”
Wen Ze Yan puts a card on Ye Qing Xin’s hand and takes his hand back. He takes a step back and maintains distance between them: “I know that you are not lacking of anything at this point. But Xin Xin, a man’s heart can change easily. Especially a rich and powerful man, he will have a lot of woman lingers around…..”
“Talking about someone behind his back, I’m afraid it’s not a noble character of man.”
That man speaks in casual tone, but anyone will not think it to be usual one.
Ye Qing Xin looks over and notices Jing Bo Yuan. He is standing not far away from them. He could hear them.
Ye Qing Xin clutches the card tightly, her head is lowered, she cannot dare to look at him at the eyes.
Jing Bo Yuan comes over and takes the card from her grip and says to Wen Ze Yan. “Family name.”
Wen Ze Yan looks at the man in front of him. Although he is not afraid of him, but he couldn’t act naturally.
It’s clear that he is threatening him.
Wen Ze Yan is just twenty six years old man, no matter about experience of temper, he couldn’t be compared with a mature man.
He clutches his fist: “My family name is Wen.”
Jing Bo Yuan: “Mr Wen, is it possible that I talk with you alone?” He doesn’t wait for his response and just uses his hand gesture “Let’s”. Wen Ze Yan cannot refuse.
Ye Qing Xin watches both of them go outside. Jing Bo Yuan returns the card back ot Wen Ze Yan. Ye Qing Xin doesn’t know what they are talking about. She just watches Wen Ze Yan’s face turns sour, but he maintains it well.
Jing Bo Yuan once in a while pats Wen Ze Yan’s shoulder like an elder pats his junior. Wen Ze Yan lowers his head.
Today except relatives, county level leaders come over, there are also several business partner come over to offer their condolences.
Her relatives start to change their view of her. In the past they thought that she was a miserable insect, but now she is shinning phoenix.
After the dinner, everyone is chatting.
The sun is still shinning and not setting yet.
Pan Yang says: “I’ve contacted the funeral car. Tomorrow the car will arrive here at 06.00 am.
Song Fu says too: “The Feng Shui practitioner also has checked the place. He choses a place near your Wai Gong and Wai Po’s tomb……..”
Ye Qing Xin nods: “Thank you Song Shu Shu, Pan Shu, thanks for your help. If not I really don’t know what should I do.”
Song Fu says: “I am not really a helper, I just helped as an assistant. It’s all Mr Jing’s hard works. Without him, Qiao Qiao will leave alone and desolated. It’s the grandiose funeral that I’ve ever seen, it’s like in the movie. Later on if I tell to everyone,let’s see who will look down at me….”
Song Mu kicks him when she hears that his words turns improper.
Song Fu realizes that he said something wrong. He shuts his mouth off and looks at Jing Bo Yuan awkwardly.
Jing Bo Yuan’s face doesn’t chance. He just sits down calmly and acts like he doesn’t listen to Song Fu’s words.
He takes out his cigarette and just smokes it.
Ye Qing Xin also doesn’t mind too. She smiles and changes the topic: “What happened to Tai Shi Shi?”
Pan Yang says: “The woman that got hurt? I don’t know.”
Song Fu sighs and says: ” I heard that someone said that she is saved. But she might become a disabled person for a lifetime…..”
Song Mu feels sorry for her: “Tai Zheng Ting was so ruthless. Even he was angry with his daughter. He shouldn’t act that way. I see that Tai Shi Shi is a good kid. She is miserable woman.”
At 11 p.m. the funeral hall turns silent.
Ye Qing Guo has asleep. There’re only Ye Qing Xin and Jing Bo Yuan inside the funeral hall. She lays her head on Jing Bo Yuan’s shoulder. Her eyes are a bit teary: “Tonight it’s the last time for me to accompany my Ma, don’t force me to sleep okay?”
These days he’s busy with the funeral, he doesn’t have time to take care of himself. Jing Bo Yuan is sweaty and has a manly scent on his body. He also has a bit of cigarette scent. It’s not so heavy or bad smelling. It somehow can comfort her.
Jing Bo Yuan hugs her and strokes her hair. Tonight he doesn’t force her to sleep. But the time Ye Qing Xin opens her eyes, she is inside the room.
She is awake because of the alarm.
She gets off the bed and goes outside. The sky is gloomy and gray. There’s a lot of people in the hall. Everyone is busy.
Jing Bo Yuan stands outside the hall and smokes.
Ye Qing Xin notices that he looks a bit skinnier. Since they came here, he hasn’t slept. Originally these things should be done by her, but he helps her to do it.
Ye Qing Xin comes over and hugs his arm.
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her and throws away his cigarette. He clutches her hand: “Go and eat something.”
The time Ye Qing Xin eats her porridge, people keep on coming. Wen Ze Yan also comes but he doesn’t approach her. He just stands in one corner and smokes.
Tai Zheng Ting and his family members don’t come. They should be in trouble now.
Six a.m. the funeral car comes and stops in front of the hall.
They all go toward the crematorium.
The time Zhou Qiao Qiao’s coffin is pushed inside the cremation machine. Ye Qing Xin’s legs turn weak. Jing Bo Yuan hugs her from behind.
At this moment, Ye Qing Xin truly realizes that starting from now, she doesn’t have a mother.
