SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(This Woman Is Too Capricious (5)
"She's in her room, I don't think she's feeling well."
Ignoring Jiang Linyue, Qin Chu headed upstairs to her mother's bedroom.
As soon as he entered, he saw his mother lying against an armchair. She was half-covered in a blanket, and her face was pale.
"Mom, what's wrong?"
"Something's wrong with my heart," Mrs. Qin said as she pointed at her chest.
Qin Chu immediately knew that her mother was throwing a fit. He pulled up a chair and sat across from her.
"Mom, what do you want, calling me here in the middle of the night."
"You're my son and I miss you. Can't I call you here?"
"That's not what I meant. I just think that there's no need for you to pretend that you are sick. It's childish."
"I'm not pretending, I'm having a heartache. You agreed to come home for dinner tonight, why did you stand me up? Linyue waited here the entire evening. As GK's president, shouldn't you be a man of your words?"
"Mom, I think you misunderstood me, I didn't agree to come back for dinner tonight."
"Do you remember what you said when I called you?"
"I said 'I got it', but I never said I was going to come."
"Chu, don't play word puzzles with me. Tell me this, when will you be announcing your relationship?"
"My relationship with who?"
"With Linyue, of course, I like that girl and talked it over with your father. She's a good match for you."
"Mom…I will choose who to date and marry. You and dad don't have to interfere."
"What do you mean by that? You're our son, of course, we have a say too." Mrs. Qin raised her voice.
"But there's a limit to that, you can't randomly find girls for me."
"What do you mean by that?" Mrs. Qin threw aside her blanket and shot up from her chair.
"Mom, stop interfering with my personal life. I don't even like Jiang Linyue, you need to stop getting her involved."
"Who do you like then? That girl from the Huo family?" Mrs. Qin was furious.
"So what if I do?" Qin Chu didn't deny it.
"Chu, are you crazy? Don't forget that it'll never work out between the two of you. Back then…"
"Back then? I never asked you why you guys did that to her back then. If you weren't my parents, do you really think you'd still be sitting here in front of me?"
"What would you do? Kill us for her?" Pale, Mrs. Qin demanded as she looked at her indifferent son.
"Mom… I'm your only son, and you and dad are my only parents. Let's stop doing stuff that would hurt each other. A lot of things cannot be taken back once you do them. You've aged and should enjoy your retirement. You should… leave the rest to me."
Then, Qin Chu got up to leave…
"Chu, don't go, if you …. If you don't give up on that girl, I won't recognize you as my son."
"Does it matter whether you recognize me as a son or not?" Qin Chu sneered. Then, he turned around and headed downstairs.
Mrs. Qin wailed as soon as she heard him say this…
Jiang Linyue immediately ran into her room upon hearing Mrs. Qin's cries…
"Mrs. Qin, what's wrong?"
"Get out, get out, I don't want to see anyone right now." Mrs. Qin's anger finally erupted.
When she found out that her son was still hung up on that girl, Huo Mian, her entire head burst into flames.
There were so many women in this world, why was her son so stuck on Huo Mian?
That little vixen, she tricked Qin Chu into sleeping with her at the age of 17, and almost delayed her son's plans to go study abroad. What was so great about her?
Plus, she heard that Huo Mian's mother was one of Huo Zhenghai's mistresses, and Huo Mian was no more than an illegitimate daughter.
Her son, on the other hand, was her prized jewel…
Why? Why was it that after seven years, her son was still that obsessed with her?
Qin Chu went downstairs; just as he was about to leave, his father stopped him.
"Dad, what's up?"
"Let's talk," Qin Yumin said in a grave tone.
