She could not afford to die. Her mother was ill and she needed money to recover.
She clenched her fist as she walked back to her house in fury, her head lowered.
She could not tell what her emotions were. She just felt helpless, her heart felt sour.
When she got to her house, she discovered a few black cars parked in front. The Si Family’s housekeeper got down from one of the cars and walked towards her.
“Miss Zhuang, the madam sent me here to ask you whether you have made up your mind.”
After saying that, he took out a piece of cheque and handed it over to her, “No more than 10 million yuan. Feel free to write any number.”
A cold shiver ran through her back. The first time she didn’t agree with Ding Mengya, she put her mother in the hospital. If she disagree with her request again, would Ding Mengya put her in the hospital next?
These people were so sick!
She took a deep breath and looked at the cheque.
Her tiny body trembled greatly as a feeling of helplessness filled her. She did not know what to do.
Her eyes turned red, glistening with tears that she wouldn’t allow to fall lest it cause these people to look down on her.
After a moment, she gathered herself and slowly accepted the cheque.
Then, she looked at the housekeeper and said, “Tell her she owed me one.”
After that, she walked into her house without looking back.
She wrote 300,000 yuan on the cheque, just enough for her mother’s surgery.
This was what Ding Mengya owed her for what she did to her mother. She would not let this separate her with Si Zheng Ting. Even though she disliked his mother, she still wanted to be with him. She was too young then, too naïve. She thought that whatever relationship she had with Si Zheng Ting was strictly between the two of them, no one else could interfere with their feelings.
If she had not known what she would find out later, she probably would have stayed with Si Zheng Ting like a complete idiot.
The next few days were spent caring for her mother. Her mother’s surgery was very successful, just, her memory started getting pretty bad. One time, she would call her by her name, and then, the next moment, she would ignore her and start searching for her ‘Nai Nai’. Her mother was later diagnosed with Alzheimer.
The sun is shining brightly outside, but the atmosphere inside the study room is the complete opposite.
Zhuang Nai Nai’s back feels oddly cold.
She was naïve back then, but is she really that different now?
Didn’t she abandoned her hatred for Ding Mengya for the sake of Si Zheng Ting, in the end?
Gu De Shou is sitting behind the desk, waiting for her answer calmly.
She lowers her head, “She got into a car accident and hit her head.”
Gu De Shou nods, “I know. The experts from overseas have told me. Alzheimer can be a genetic illness. It can remain dormant for most of the patient’s life and then suddenly gets triggered by a certain incident. Her’s can also be a simple case of mental illness caused by head trauma.”
Zhuang Nai Nai has been told so by the doctors from the hospital as well.
She nods, “When are you going to send my mother back to me?”
