Gu De Shou looks at her, “I heard you have been sick. I was out of the country these past few days. I have been fighting with your mother because of this. Just ignore her if she lash out at you. Anyway, seeing you right now, you seem to have gotten better.”
Zhuang Nai Nai nods, her heart turning sour.
At the moment, the concern in Gu De Shou’s voice is genuine. He really sounds like a father who is worried for his daughter’s health.
She has been yearning for one ever since she was little, but Gu De Shou’s performance as one has been too disappointing that she simply cannot view him as a father.
Why is Gu De Shou suddenly acting this way?
Seeing her so indifferent, Gu De Shou sighs. His rationality returns to him and he returns to masking his expression as he used to. He changes the topic, “Did you get the design drafts? Any later than this and it will be too late.”
Zhuang Nai Nai nods and takes out the U-disk from her bag. “It is inside. It is a rough draft so your team will need to polish it.”
Earlier this morning, she actually planned to hand Gu De Shou the papers that she had printed, but she had tried looking for them all over Si Zheng Ting’s study but failed. She simply concludes that either the maids or Si Zheng Ting had accidentally thrown them away.
Fortunately for her, this is the era of digital designs, so not having the designs in paper form does not really pose any problem.
Gu De Shou nods, “Your mother is the one in charge of our Design Team. I will send it to her later.”
Zhuang Nai Nai is stunned. Li Yu Feng is in charge of Gu Enterprise’s Design Department?
Gu De Shou outstretches his hand, intending to take the U-disk from her.
She takes it back, “Let me see my mother first.”
Gu De Shou looks at her before sighing. Without protesting, he walks towards his study and says, “Follow me.”
Zhuang Nai Nai follows him into the study and sees an Ipad on the coffee table in front of the couch.
She looks at it curiously and finds her mother’s face on the screen.
She is wearing a set of white clothes while sitting on a bench in the middle of a garden. There is a big grass field behind her, with many other patients roaming around. She is smiling gently, looking just like how she used to back in their old house.
Tears pool in Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes as she looks at that familiar smile.
She and her mother have always been very close; they have never been away from each other for such a long duration.
She has been dreaming a lot about her mother. In her dreams, her mother was always crying, screaming for help. ‘Nai Nai….. Nai Nai……’
Although she knew that her mother ought to be well under the excellent care of the institution, seeing it with her own eyes makes her so relieved.
Her sunny smile blends so well with the bright sky over there.
Her mother is the person that she trusts the most in this world. Zhuang Nai Nai swallows heavily before holding the Ipad with both hands, “Mom!”
Her mother’s eyes light up when she sees her. Whilst Zhuang Nai Nai is frantic, her mother appears calm and happy. “Nai Nai……” says her mother with a warm voice.
