KEEP WAITING FOR YOU
(Haven’t Touched It In More Than 20 Years)
She wanted to see what kind of person Lu Man’s mother was.
In fact, by just looking at Lu Man, she could tell that her mother was definitely not bad, and in the end, it was expected.
Even though she had met Lu Qiyuan who was a really scum man, Xia Qingwei’s personality was still good, her personality pleasant, warming, and generous.
The Old Madam finally knew where that warming, pleasant personality Lu Man got from.
It seemed like she inherited that from Xia Qingwei.
When Lu Man brought the dishes out, she just happened to hear the Old Madam say in astonishment, “You know how to play the violin?”
Xia Qingwei was a bit disappointed and spoke in remorse, “I’ve already put down the violin for very long. In the past, my father was a violinist in the City Symphony Orchestra, and during breaks, he used to take a Violin class, and I also followed his students to learn. In the past my dad wanted me to be like him and be a violinist, he hoped that I would be able to go further on that path than him, but it was just that later on — ”
Xia Qingwei sighed, “I disappointed him.”
After she married Lu Qiyuan, she was busy coming up with plans and her frequency of playing the violin become lower and lower, and later on, when she had Lu Man, she just decided to give up on the violin.
It had been 22 years since he had kept the violin aside, and even now, she did not know if she could still play.
Lu Man looked over in shock. “Mom, I never knew…”
Lu Man blamed herself, she realized that even though she was reborn and returned to her mom, her understanding of Xia Qingwei was still too little.
After she came back, she was busy with all kinds of things, and she had less and less time to properly chat with Xia Qingwei and get to know her more.
She needed to find more time to spend with Xia Qingwei.
Xia Qingwei shook her head and smiled. “I’ve never talked about this before, how would you know. Since you’ve been born you’ve never seen me play the violin.”
Xia Qingwei did not want Lu Man to blame herself because of that.
Shen Nuo said. “As long as you like it, no matter what, it is not too late, it’s still the same even if you pick it up now.”
The Old Madam nodded in agreement as well. “That’s right, that’s right, can you play the violin now?”
Xia Qingwei shook her head. “I’m also not sure, after all, I haven’t touched it in more than 20 years.”
Excited, the Old Madam asked, “Do you have on in the house now?”
“I do.” Xia Qingwei smiled and nodded. “Although I did not touch it ever again, as it was left behind by my father I’ve always kept it well.”
“Do you want to try?” The Old Madam was eager for Xia Qingwei to give it a try. “Even if you’ve forgotten, you have the foundation already, so if you go and learn it again, you’ll be able to pick it up very fast. Now that you are resting at home, you have enough time, in the past, it could not be helped, but now since you have the time and skills, you can do anything you like, isn’t that good?”
When Xia Qingwei heard that, she happily nodded her head in agreement. “Right, why did I never think of that? There is a violin in the house, let me try to find it.”
Excusing herself, Xia Qingwei returned to her room.
“I’ll follow over to take a look,” Lu Man said.
Shen Nuo smiled and said, “Go on.”
And so, Lu Man went over with Xia Qingwei.
Entering Xia Qingwei’s bedroom, she saw that Xia Qingwei was carrying a chair and was preparing to stand on it to look through her closet.
Shocked, Lu Man hurriedly stopped her. “Mom, don’t go up, I’ll help you take it down.”
To let Lu Man be reassured, Xia Qingwei did not insist.
Lu Man stepped on the chair and went to open the cupboard door and saw a black case at the top.
Even though Xia Qingwei had said that for many years she had not touched the violin, it could be seen that Xia Qingwei still cared for it a lot.
She had kept the case especially clean, and there was no dust on it at all, and there was still a lot of space above the box, but Xia Qingwei did not put anything above it and only put that violin there.
