Is her mother really Gu De Shou’s mistress?
She was the one who taught Zhuang Nai Nai to live with principles. She still remembers suffering from high fever when she was young, one that develops into pneumonia. She was hospitalized for half a month, racking up a bill that exceeds 40,000 yuan. They barely had any money back then.
Her mother was a hotel worker then, and because of her gentle temperament, her boss took a liking on her. The said boss offered her money in return to becoming his lover.
Her mother had rejected his advances and quit the job on the next day. She would rather borrow money than to resort to such a method.
After she recovered, her mother told her everything. Her mother had to work two jobs for three years to pay back the loan.
Her mother told her that she was not superior to anyone and that she should never lower her self-value for anything in this world.
She really cannot accept their accusations; that her mother is a kidnapper and a married man’s mistress.
Zhuang Nai Nai holds her breath as she looks at Gu De Shou tensely, waiting for his answer apprehensively.
Honestly, even if Gu De Shou says yes, she will still not believe him.
After a moment, Gu De Shou says, “No.”
The weight on Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart disappears.
For the first time in forever, she is finally having a shred of good feeling for Gu De Shou.
She continues pursuing the question, “Then what are you two?”
Gu De Shou’s eyes turn dim before he sighs, “Your Zhuang mama is a very prideful person, do not think ill of her.”
Zhuang Nai Nai is quiet for a moment before asking, “Do you love her, then?”
Does he love her?
Gu De Shou lowers his eyes. How could he not love her?
Only the heavens know how happy he was back then, when he found out that she liked him.
She was so high up there, so magnificent and he was just so inferior, so unworthy of her.
Gu De Shou sighs. Everything has passed, what is the point in dwelling on what-ifs?
He lifts his head. He originally intends to speak in a calm manner, but when he sees the inquisitive look on Zhuang Nai Nai’s face, the words are stuck in his throat.
It has been so many years and even he wish for someone to talk to about this matter.
He is quiet for a moment before finally saying, “Nai Nai, although your real mother is Li Yu Feng, your situation is different. There is something that I have never said to Xing Hao and Xing Shan that I wish to tell you. She is the only woman that I have ever deeply loved in this world. She is etched inside my heart.”
Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart suddenly turns sour. For her Zhuang mama and for Li Yu Feng.
Perhaps, her mother never marries because of him.
Li Yu Feng is also very pitiful. Zhuang Nai Nai finally understands why Li Yu Feng hates Zhuang mama so much.
She looks at the man in front of her, who is immersed in nostalgia and regret.
