Anyway, this was her in-laws-to-be’s home, basically her home in the future. Where could she not go?
“No, just sit there for a while.”
With that, Zhai Yaohui left Qi Minlan behind and ran off to find his mom.
As Zhai Yaohui entered his parents’ room, he saw his mom lying on the bed and facing the window. This gave Zhai Yaohui a huge scare. “Mom, why are you lying in bed at this time? Are you feeling unwell? Why didn’t you tell me? I’ll send you to the hospital.”
Qi Minlan had been right. His mom was lying in bed in discomfort.
“I’m not going to the hospital.” Grandma Zhai pushed her son’s hand aside. “I’m not in physical pain. I feel uneasy in my heart. I need some medication for my heart. But even the doctors in the hospital won’t be able to cure me of this. Don’t bother me. I want some time alone.”
She was still feeling upset and depressed, but someone had come to stir up even more trouble for her.
“Heart problems? What problems? Mom, since when did you have heart problems?” Zhai Yaohui thought for a long while but couldn’t think of anything that could have caused his mother any heartache, so much so that she was lying in bed in broad daylight. This was unprecedented.
Grandma Zhai didn’t want to reply to Zhai Yaohui. The thought of Zhai Yaohui made her even more frustrated.
What could Zhai Yaohui do other than try to coax his mom? “Mom, what’s wrong? Why are you upset?”
Grandma Zhai sat up and looked furiously at Zhai Yaohui. “Miao Miao moved away! Ever since Miao Miao moved out, I’ve been so lonely. Who will chat with me, cook with me, and accompany me in the future? You and your father are always so busy. I’m so frustrated staying at home. I want Miao Miao back!”
As she said that, Grandma Zhai’s eyes welled up with tears.
Over the past year, Grandma Zhai had truly accepted Miao Jing completely and gotten close to her.
When Miao Jing had still been around, Grandma Zhai had not felt such a deep bond with Miao Jing and had not thought that she needed Miao Jing that much. But it turned out that Miao Jing had been such an essential part of her life over the past year, and she had forged so many precious memories with her.
That was why Grandma Zhai was even more regretful that she only understood that now.
“Miao Miao left? When did she leave? Where did she go? Didn’t you say that Miao Miao’s course is over?”
Zhai Yaohui didn’t think much about it, thinking that Miao Jing had only left for a few hours. Wouldn’t she come back at night? Why was his mother acting in this way?
But thinking about it again, would his mother be so upset if that was the case?
His mother wasn’t one to make a mountain out of a molehill. “Where’s Miao Jing? Don’t tell me she returned to her second uncle’s house in the countryside?”
Hadn’t his dad said that Miao Miao’s uncle and auntie weren’t good people and even treated Miao Miao badly?
Miao Miao had finally widened her knowledge and had the ability to settle down in the city. Wouldn’t it be a waste of all her efforts and hard work if she were to move back now?
Seeing her son’s reaction, Grandma Zhai finally said, “Miao Miao found a job and said that she’s moving into the workers’ dormitory. She won’t be coming back other than coming to visit me from time to time.”
Grandma Zhai dared not hope that Miao Jing would visit too often.
She had already left and was no longer living with them. How could she expect Miao Jing to visit her often?
She might not even return once a month, much less every day to spend time with her.
Anyway, that was just about as frequent as her husband returning home. As for her son, he returned about once a year.
“Why did she suddenly move to the workers’ dormitory when she can stay at home?”
Grandma Zhai was infuriated. “Don’t you know that there’s nowhere that can compare to one’s home no matter how dilapidated it is? Miao Miao didn’t think of our home as her home. That’s why she left. Miao Miao will probably find a partner for herself very soon if the people at the factory learn that she’s still single.”
The more she said, the angrier Grandma Zhai got. “Do you believe me when I say that I’ll receive Miao Miao’s wedding invitation before you find yourself a partner? Do you think I should attend her wedding when that time comes?”
The daughter-in-law she had wanted for her family would marry into another family. How could she ever be happy over that?
In short, it was all her son’s fault. Her son hadn’t been able to keep such a good young lady like Miao Miao by his side. How useless!
Hearing that Miao Jing was going to find someone to get married to, Zhai Yaohui felt a little uneasy. “Mom, don’t get too worried. It’s not so easy to get married. Don’t you think that Miao Miao will be afraid of marrying the wrong person? If-if that day ever comes, we’re still Miao Miao’s family. We’ll have to look out for Miao Miao. If that man is a good man and can give Miao Miao a good and comfortable life, we should support her. If that guy is a bad one, then we have to save Miao Miao from jumping into the fire. It’ll be a long time before she gets married. We don’t have to be so worried.”
Grandma Zhai sneered. “Are you prepared to give Miao Miao a dowry as her elder brother when she gets married?”
“I could do that…”
Grandma Zhai sneered inwardly. She had given birth to her son and knew exactly what his tone meant.
Although he had said it easily, his tone didn’t match his words.
It would be a joyful occasion if his younger sister got married. Even if Yaohui couldn’t force a smile out, he should look less murderous at the very least.
Who was he trying to cheat?
Did he think that his mother was a fool?
As the mother and son continued with their chat, Qi Minlan, who had been waiting downstairs, got bored.
She had waited for a long time, but neither of them had come downstairs yet.
As the minutes ticked by, Qi Minlan didn’t even hear any sound of anyone coming downstairs, much less a figure.
Qi Minlan was extremely familiar with the Zhai family’s house and wanted to head upstairs.
The Zhai family’s auntie was stuck in a dilemma. She had always thought that Qi Minlan was Zhai Yaohui’s marriage partner, but Miao Jing had shown up a year ago.
Seeing how Grandma Zhai had gradually taken a liking to Miao Jing over the past year, the auntie was almost sure that Miao Jing would be her future mistress.
But just then, Miao Jing had moved away and Qi Minlan had come to visit the Zhai family all dressed up.
So, was she supposed to stop Qi Minlan from going upstairs or not?
In her moment of hesitation, Qi Minlan decisively walked up the stairs, her heels clicking against the hard floor.
