Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The number of people who knew about the Shen Family’s matter was very small too.
It was as if Shen Qianshu never existed in the Shen Family before.
“Ok, young master, you call the shots. We won’t go!” Lin Xiaojuan did not want to put Tong Hua on the spot too. She also disliked Shen Lin, but it was true that Shen Lin’s reputation could bring many benefits to Tong Hua. Being his manager, she only hoped for Tong Hua to become better.
But since Tong Hua was unwilling, she would never force him.
Shen Qianshu reached out and gently patted her son’s head.
Tong Hua pouted angrily, carried his bowl, filled it up with slight portions of the dishes, and ran into the study room.
Lin Xiaojuan frowned. “Why does Tong Hua… hate the Shen Family so much?”
Qianshu and the Shen Family had long not kept in contact.
Shen Qianshu eyes glazed with a tinge of sadness. “Do you still remember when Tong Hua suffered a huge sickness three years ago?”
“Of course I remember, it was when you just returned home.”
“There were some abnormalities with his heart, and the hospitalisation fees were really expensive. I had no money, and you were overseas then and could not be reached. The hospital pressed me to pay the fees; thus, I went to beg them.” Shen Qianshu gritted her teeth before continuing. “At the hospital back then, they said a lot of nasty stuff, in front of Tong Hua…”
“They forked out the money?”
Shen Qianshu suddenly recalled something, and her hands balled into a fist. “Yes.”
“That’s impossible. Since when were your parents so kind-hearted? What did you give in exchange?”
“Let’s not talk about this, it’s already in the past.” Shen Qianshu did not want to think about the past. “If Tong Hua can be safe and sound, it is worth it regardless of what I give in exchange. Besides… I treated them like my own parents for fifteen years, there was still some kinship. I did not give anything in exchange.”
“Really!” Shen Qianshu laughed, glanced at the study room, and said, “Let me go check on Tong Hua.”
Shen Qianshu pushed open the door and saw Tong Hua clutching onto his bowl, tears flowing down his cheeks. Shen Qianshu was shocked. She turned Tong Hua around, and his eyes were bloodshot, looking very sad.
“Tong Hua, what happened?”
His tears had already flowed into his bowl.
He looked really sad.
Shen Qianshu’s heart broke into pieces.
“It is all my fault.” Tong Hua wiped his tears, crying breathlessly.
Shen Qianshu knelt down and wiped his tears away. “Baby, my good boy. We will not go, not even in the future. Alright?”
Tong Hua nodded heavily and seriously said, “Mommy, I will earn a lot, a lot of money.”
Shen Qianshu broke into a smile. “Mommy doesn’t need you to earn a lot of money. You just need to be healthy and safe, and grow up well.”
“If it wasn’t for me, Mommy would not have forsaken your painstaking effort…”
“Alright, let’s not talk about this. For you, Mommy is willing to do anything, no regrets.”
“Mommy, I love you.”
“Mommy loves you too, alright.” Shen Qianshu wiped his tears away.
Shen Qianshu finally pacified Tong Hua and made him come out of the room. Lin Xiaojuan put down her chopsticks and said, “Why, what happened? He still cried?”
“His teenager heart broke. Don’t bother about him.”
“I didn’t take things into careful consideration. You guys have not met in such a long time, and for Tong Hua, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to…”
“No, this is not your fault.” Shen Qianshu said. She glanced at Tong Hua before continuing. “Since the boy is unwilling, just let him be. Everything will be ok at the company, right?”
“It will be ok. Li Zhiyuan is pursuing you; he can’t wait to dote on Tong Hua. He will give him anything he wants.”
Shen Qianshu was speechless.
Lin Xiaojuan ate finish dinner and sat for a while before bidding goodbye.
