Fang Xueman sat next to Old Man Fang’s bed for nearly two hours. She barely moved. Jiang Sese was worried that she could not bear it. “Mom, why don’t you rest. I’ll look after Grandpa.” Fang Xueman shook her head. “It’s fine. I can do it.” Her insistence pained Jiang Sese and exasperated her as well. All that she could do was to stay with her. “Sese,” Fang Xueman suddenly called for her.“Yeah.” “I was a bad daughter, wasn’t I?” Fang Xueman turned to look at her, eyes full of grief. Jiang Sese did not answer. She could not tell who was at fault back then. This was a matter between her mother and her grandfather. As a member of the younger generation, she could not comment. “If I had listened to your Grandpa and Grandma, perhaps things would be different now, and your Grandma might not have left so soon.” At that, Fang Xueman choked up. “It’s because I was unfilial. Why didn’t I come back earlier. Why…” She hated her own pride and refusal to obey.It led to her n
“It really is a shame.” Shang Ying remembered the scene just before Old Madam Fang passed. Her heart wrenched, her eyes reddening unwittingly. “At the time, Mom was constantly calling for your name. Ah Teng and I were begging Dad to send people out to look for you, to not let Mom leave with regrets.” “Dad is like me, we’re equally stubborn,” Fang Xueman said with a bitter smile. “No.” Shang Ying shook her head. “Even though Dad is stubborn, he loved you the most, ever since you were young. If that were not the case, he would not have been so angry back then.” At that, Shang Ying suddenly realized that she was bringing up the past again. She quickly changed the topic. “Actually, he agreed to send someone to look for you, but they could not find you… In the end, Mom passed on.” This incident had become one of the largest regrets of the Fang family. “I’m sorry.” Fang Xueman was unsure how to express the regret and guilt she felt in her heart other than with an apology. “
Fang Yuchen walked into the ward and realized that the mood was not right. He looked at Fang Cheng, Fang Rui and their families, before looking at Jiang Sese and the others. When he saw Fang Xueman, his eyes lit up and he strode over. “Aunty Xueman.” His voice sounded excited. Fang Xueman was taken aback. “You are…” Shang Ying hurriedly introduced him. “Third Sister, this is my son, Fang Yuchen.” “It’s Ah Chen.” Fang Xueman assessed him. The excitement in her expression could not be hidden. “You’ve grown so big.” When she left home that year, Ah Chen was just a newborn. It had been so many years and he had grown up so much. “Aunty Xueman, it’s great that you’re back.” Fang Yuchen was very moved. Ever since he was young, he had heard a lot about Fang Xueman from his mother. Therefore, despite the fact that it was the first time they had actually met, Fang Yuchen still felt very close to her. “Thank you, Ah Chen.” Just as before, only Fang Xueman’s little brother’
“Tiantian!” Jiang Sese strode over.When she heard his voice, Tiantian immediately stopped crying and looked over. When she saw her, she cried even louder, even sadder now. “Baby, don’t cry.” Jiang Sese quickly picked her up and kissed her forehead. Her heart hurt so much she teared up. “You’re finally home.” Madam Jin sighed with relief. She looked at Jin Fengchen, who had just come in. “Tiantian’s been crying all day, and we can’t get her to stop.” There was no annoyance in her voice, only heartache and worry. Jin Fengchen walked and touched Tiantian’s forehead. He frowned. “What did the doctor say?” “The doctor said that it was flu season. Children’s immune systems aren’t great, so there’s no way for her to recover soon.” Tiantian was tired from crying and fell asleep in Jiang Sese’s arms. Her little face was still flushed red. Jiang Sese gently patted her head, her face full of pain. “Actually, she will get a lot better if she receives a jab,” Madam Jin said.
When Jiang Sese woke up, she found that she was in a car. She sat up in a daze and looked at the man who was driving. “Fengchen.” When he heard her voice, Jin Fengchen unconsciously hit the brakes. “Screech-” The tires made a sharp sound as it skid against the asphalt. Jin Fengchen turned his head to see her sitting up. He asked anxiously, “Are you feeling unwell?” Jiang Sese shook her head blankly. “No, why am I in the car?” “You fainted.” “I fainted?” Jiang Sese was even more dumbfounded. Was she not feeding Tiantian, how did she suddenly faint? Jin Fengchen did not know what was going on as well. He started driving again. “We’ll head to the research facility.” “Okay.” Jiang Sese did not feel particularly unwell, so why would she suddenly faint? This was a question only Mo Xie and Han Yu could explain clearly. She suddenly thought about something and asked worriedly, “Where’s Tiantian?” “Mom and dad are looking after her, don’t worry.” Jiang Sese sighe
That night, Jin Fengchen received the examination report from Mo Xie. When he opened it to take a look, he frowned deeply. He had just finished reading it when Mo Xie called. “Young Master, have you taken a look at the report?” “Yeah.” “The drug Han Yu and I developed, as well as the one that you brought the last time, had succeeded in temporarily restraining the pathogen from functioning. However today’s report clearly shows that it’s more active than before. The drugs may be unable to suppress it much longer.” Jin Fengchen gripped his phone tighter and said in a low voice, “Is this connected to the fainting?” “Probably. It’s a side effect of the drugs combating the pathogen.” “How much time do we have left?” “That’s unclear at present. All we can do now is to continue to take the drugs on time. Han Yu and I will increase our research speed.” “Are the drugs still of any use?” There was silence on the other end for a while. “Young Master, Han Yu and I mean to incr
The next day, Jiang Sese was woken up by the two children. Because they wanted to go to the amusement park, they were extremely excited and had rushed over to knock on the door first thing in the morning. “I knew telling them beforehand was a mistake.” Jin Fengchen grumbled helplessly. It was fine if he was woken up, but he was worried that Jiang Sese did not get enough sleep.Jiang Sese was amused by him. “Looking at the two kids happy, I’m happy as well.” After she said that, she got out of bed to open the door. As soon as she opened the door, the two children came rushing in. “Daddy, mommy, we were so good today. We brushed our teeth, washed our faces, and got changed all on our own!” Tiantian was a little excited, her fair face full of a smile that was brighter than the sun. “That’s great.” Jiang Sese patted their little heads before she said softly, “If you can go down and have breakfast first, that will be even better.” When they heard this, the two children
When they returned to their seats, Tiantian brought up what had just happened. “Mommy, big brother accidentally bumped into an aunty just now.” When Jiang Sese heard this, she hurriedly asked Xiaobao, “Did you apologize?” Xiaobao nodded. “Yes, I apologized to the aunty.” Jiang Sese stroked his head in relief. “You’re really a good boy.” “Mommy, that aunty is very beautiful.” Tiantian suddenly said. “When I grow up I want to be as pretty as her.” When she heard her daughter praising someone else, Jiang Sese traded looks with Jin Fengchen before she pretended to be jealous and asked, “Tiantian, who is prettier? Mommy or that aunty?” “Hm…” Tiantian cocked her head and looked at Jiang Sese for a long while before she said sweetly, “Of course mommy is prettier.” Jiang Sese smiled and was about to praise her when Tiantian continued, “That aunty is also very pretty. Tiantian likes her.” Jiang Sese could not but help but wonder about that woman’s looks for Tiantian to prais
