Her child died, but in exchange, that saved Tong Hua. In the end, it was a good thing.
It was destined. The fate of her and Tong Hua’s mother continued from there.
Her son’s heart was beating in Tong Hua’s body.
So, Tong Hua was her life.
She returned home from Paris hurriedly. After settling all the matters, she brought Tong Hua to Paris again to resume her studies.
She caressed the face of the deeply asleep Tong Hua and said quietly, “Tong Hua, for you, I can do anything.”
The next morning, Lin Xiaojuan came hurriedly. Shen Qianshu’s hair was in a huge mess. She was so tired her eyes could barely open since she barely slept at all, and she could not get up from her bed.
“Tong Hua’s really alright?”
“He’s fine,” Shen Qianshu said. “Someone saved him.”
Tong Hua pouted. He wished to tell his mom that he saved himself. He did not want his foster daddy to get any credit. Yet, for the sake of not scaring her, he let it go. He wanted to be a cute and obedient little child.
“Yuan Hui and Gu Xiaoli are totally inhumane! F*ck his granny,” Lin Xiaojuan said furiously as she pointed to her forehead. “Told you so. It’s not a game. You should’ve broken up with him earlier, but you ignored me. What’s the use of a boyfriend who only meets up with you once a week?”
“What did his granny do wrong? What a weird taste you have.”
“Mummy, Aunt Xiaojun, I’m here. Don’t pollute a child’s mind.” Tong Hua chimed in.
As Tong Hua’s manager, Lin Xiaojuan was always straightforward. “Have you made a police report?” she asked.
Shen Qianshu shook her head. Lin Xiaojuan was glad. This matter could not reach the police, since it would badly affect Tong Hua, but at the same time, it could not be let go just like that. Yuan Hui and Gu Xiaoli should be taught a lesson.
“Leave this to me. I’ll teach the shameless couple a lesson. You don’t have to do anything.”
Shen Qianshu’s eyes lit up. “How are you going to teach them a lesson?”
“As a manager in the entertainment industry, it’s only a matter of seconds for me to get someone to teach them a lesson. Don’t worry, I won’t be in trouble.” Lin Xiaojuan said calmly. “If we don’t teach them a lesson, they might continue using Tong Hua against you.”
Shen Qianshu hugged Lin Xiaojuan and said, “We’re all counting on you.”
“Get lost, useless girl. You can’t even protect your son.” Lin Xiaojuan glowered at her, and Shen Qianshu felt wronged. She continued hugging her while Lin Xiaojuan continued. “Told you to leave him long ago, but you were blind.”
Tong Hua nodded in agreement.
Mummy has always had a bad taste.
“In the past seven years, I dated five guys. Four of them were exposed by you.” Shen Qianshu accused the queen-like Lin Xiaojuan and continued. “Do you have any feelings for me?”
“Get lost! Even if I had feelings for anyone, it’d be for a seventeen or eighteen-year-old princess who is fresh and tender.”
” I’m eighteen too … Are the eighteen-year old-artistes under you as pretty as me? Do they have skin as clear as mine?”
“… You seem to be asking for it!”
Tong Hua broke into laughter. His mom was too adorable.
“Those loan sharks won’t come for you, right?”
Shen Qianshu remembered the look of the man with the gold necklace on his knees, pondered a bit, and replied. “Nope.”
They wouldn’t dare!
“It’s the weekend right now, and you don’t have work. Tong Hua has a programme. Do you wanna accompany him?”
Tong Hua eyes lit up as he stared at her. She could not reject.
“Isn’t it in the afternoon? Let me get some sleep before going.”
Tong Hua was elated. Shen Qianshu could not help but pinch his little cheeks.
Lin Xiaojuan took Tong Hua away, but Shen Qianshu could not fall asleep. After washing up, she thought about it and decided to take a trip to the cemetery.
