Jon’s hometown was the capital, I knew that, after a pause I said, “Are you going to stay this time?”
He shook his head, “We’ll see how you get on, I’ve got a trip back to M in a couple of days, there’s still some things to be done there.”
The car pulled up under the hotel, he threw the keys to the parking boy at the door, Muzi opened her eyes and got out of the car, looking at him, “Why don’t you come to Jiangcheng and open a small clinic, in the future at least we’ll be handy!”
Jon looked at him and laughed playfully, “What? What’s going on, are you emotionally or mentally off too?”
Giving him a blank look, Muzi didn’t have the stomach for it and stopped talking.
The hotel was booked in advance, and after checking in at the front desk, we went upstairs together.
As soon as Jon entered the room, he said listlessly, “The most dreadful thing about staying is the wine booking, it’s boring and lonely and cold!”
I glanced down at my mobile phone, it was dead and switched off, Muzi was probably drowsy and fell asleep on the sofa.
Jon looked at me and said, “Since when did you realize you were in the wrong mood?”
“Six months ago!” I spoke, my thoughts drifting a little, “Moods get low easily and I tend to do extreme things to hurt myself or my kids.”
The occurrences were rare, only occasionally out of control.
He pinched his brow and spoke, “Shen Shu, you know the condition you were in five years ago, so this is something you still have to take to heart, once it flares up again, this child and you are in danger.”
How could I not know, learning of my grandmother’s illness and watching Muzi’s parents die with my own eyes, all of which had a considerable impact on me.
At the time of my grandmother’s death, if it wasn’t for Grandpa Fu, I’m afraid I wouldn’t have made it through.
He sighed and said, “The good thing is that I’ve learnt a lot over the years abroad, so I won’t let you go to extremes like I did back then.”
I nodded and saw that it was almost nine o’clock and Muzi was asleep.
Lowering my voice, I said, “Have you encountered something lately?”
From the time I saw him until now, he didn’t look different, but the loss in his eyes was obvious, even when he was pretending.
He froze, looked at me and laughed, “Those eyes of yours are as poisonous as ever!”
He got up and dialed the service number at the front desk, then asked for two bottles of red wine and said, “You can’t drink, so watch me drink, I’m not in a good mood, I can fall asleep with some wine when you all go back later.”
I couldn’t help but frown, “Is it an emotional thing? Or something else?”
As far as I remember, he was rarely troubled by love, and as for family, although I had known him for so long, I had rarely heard him talk about family matters.
I didn’t know how to comfort him if I didn’t know the reason.
He leaned back a little lazily on the sofa, looked at Kimiko who was lying asleep on one side, and answered, “Whose baby is in her belly?”
I was shocked for a moment, “You …… can see that?”
He gave me a blank look and said, “I haven’t seen her for a long time, but I’m not blind, she’s a girl who can’t gain weight by eating, but suddenly she’s quite round, she’s a glutton and sleepy, and she’s always touching her belly subconsciously, if she’s not pregnant, what is it?”
I couldn’t say anything, I just said indifferently, “Ask her yourself later! Tell us about yourself, since you’ve called us here, there’s no point in you not saying anything.”
The doorbell rang and he got up to open it; it was the waiter delivering the wine.
After taking the wine, he closed the door and spoke, “It’s not a big deal, it’s just that I think how I’ve lived for twenty years and have nothing, it’s quite lonely!”
I was speechless and saw him open the red wine and drink it by himself.
So I accompanied him to drink a few sips and said, “Come to Jiangcheng to develop sometime! We are all here, so we can take care of each other in the future.”
In a person’s life, there are only a few friends who come and go, so if they get separated in the crowd, they are also separated.
He took a few sharp sips, and it was obvious that he was in a bad mood because of it.
“We’ll see later! I envy you and Muzi, you can’t get separated no matter how you go, you don’t have your family anymore, but you have people around you who are genuinely watching over you.”
Between Muzi and I, it’s not as simple as being friends anymore, we’re the only family we have for each other.
This wine has a strong aftertaste, after a few sips, I stopped, seeing that he drank the whole bottle in a short while, I was a bit worried, “This wine has a strong aftertaste, it’s almost time!”
He opened the other bottle and said in a clear voice, “It’s just that it won’t kill anyone! I don’t think anyone will care if they die anyway!”
When you don’t need it, you can insult and dislike you, but now when you need it, you’re like a dog wagging its tail, ridiculous!”
I didn’t understand his words, so I didn’t know what to say for a while, so I just listened quietly.
I didn’t know what to say, so I just listened quietly.
This was obviously said to Qiao En, who nodded with half-squinted eyes, his eyes a little red, “It’s all a family that eats people without spitting bones, now they forced my mother to die and want me to go back to save that sick and dead ghost, it’s ridiculous!”
I didn’t know the reason and couldn’t help but look at Muzi, “What’s the situation?”
She took a sip of water and held her forehead, “Qiao En is the illegitimate son of Qiao Jianguo, a rich merchant in the capital, five years ago his mother took him back to the capital to beg the Qiao family to recognize him, but the Qiao family refused to recognize him and kicked them both out, listening to what he just said, I guess the Qiao family is ready to recognize him back again.”
“I never seemed to know about these things …….”
“Of course you don’t know, back then you had gone half crazy over Grandma, he probably wouldn’t have listened even if he had talked to you!”
I looked at Jon, the wine was coming on and he was half leaning back on the sofa, looking gloomy.
All people in this world have their own suffering to suffer, either physical or mental. I’m not very good at comforting people, so I can only keep him company in silence.
There are things that you have to get through, even if you are suffering in your heart!
I looked up at the time, it was already early in the morning, I saw that Qiao En was also drunk, so I simply got up and helped him to bed, Muzi got up and joined me, looked at the time and said, “Your Mr. Fu didn’t call you?”
I shook my head, “The phone’s off!”
She bristled, “You should go back later! I’ll keep watch here.”
“It’s okay, I spoke to Fu Shenyan at lunchtime, I’ll stay over at the Cloud Copper flat tonight.” Placing Qiao En on the bed.
Seeing that Muzi’s dark eyes were a bit mid-eyed, I couldn’t help but speak up, “Haven’t slept well lately?”
She nodded, a little tired, “This baby is probably here for revenge, tossing and turning is killing me!”
Every pregnant woman is different, I basically had no reaction, the pregnancy vomiting didn’t even last long, after a pause, I said, “Come on, let’s go back!”
It wasn’t far away and it didn’t take long to get there.
It was one in the morning when I got into bed. Both of us were tired and it didn’t take long for both of us to fall asleep.
