Chapter 176: Never Looked for Xiao Yan Again
Even with the situation like this, Su Meng still didn’t look for Xiao Yan. Xiao Yan’s face had probably given her too much of a shock.
Later, Li Xiuwen got married to the daughter of a wealthy family rather than to Su Meng. When Su Meng found out about this, she felt like her entire world had turned dark. Li Xiuwen, that gentle man, had also betrayed her. Su Meng felt like the Heavens were making her endure all the sufferings of the world. She felt really really hurt ah.
During Li Xiuwen and that wealthy miss’s wedding ceremony, Su Meng asked Li Xiuwen why he betrayed with a despairing expression in front of everyone. At that time, Li Xiuwen’s entire face turned black and he had people directly throw Su Meng out.
When Ning Shu found out that the supporting male lead-sama didn’t end up together with the female lead, she curled her lips in disdain. He had already successfully taken the spot of the male lead, yet he decided he didn’t want the female lead anymore? That was such a sad amount of ambition, he deserved his fate of being a supporting male lead.
However, it seemed like after the main couple, Xiao Yan and Su Meng’s relationship was destroyed, the supporting male lead halo above Li Xiuwen’s head also disappeared.
Li Xiuwen’s new wife wasn’t some pushover either. She immediately took back the apartment Li Xiuwen had given Su Meng back and kicked Su Meng out. Su Meng, who had nowhere to go, could only rent a small and dirty apartment to stay in.
As of now, Su Xiaobao was already six years old, at the age of starting school, yet this fact didn’t seem to have occured to Su Meng. She spent her days grieving over the lost past and didn’t even think about earning money to support herself. When they finally ran out of money, Su Meng could only look at Su Xiaobao with her wide almond eyes helplessly. Finally, she said to Su Xiaobao with a resolved expression, Mommy will definitely work hard to raise you, definitely.
It wasn’t that Su Meng hadn’t thought of looking for Xiao Yan. She had secretly gone to find Xiao Yan once before, only to find that Xiao Yan was now as fat as a pig. Not only that, he was missing a leg. Due to the fact that he was too fat to fit into a wheelchair, he could only lie on the bed all day. The room had a strange smell that made people want to vomit, but it was no surprise. After all, he ate, drank, and did all his shit in the room, so it was natural that the smell was unbearable.
As for how Xiao Yan lost his leg, it was back then when Xiao Yan found out that his son was going to be imprisoned for life. He had rushed too much when going down the stairs and ended up falling and breaking his bones. However, it’d heal up fine with a plaster cast.
When Ning Shu heard the doctor say this, she had remarked ‘really?’ then signed the surgery papers and said, ‘just saw it off.’
When Xiao Yan found out that he lost his leg, he practically went crazy. Glaring at Ning Shu, he had vowed, “Su Ran, even if I become a ghost, this lifetime, next, the one after that, I won’t ever forgive you.”
Ning Shu smiled, unconcerned. However, that smile chilled Xiao Yan to the bones. This woman, this woman…
Su Meng left and never looked for Xiao Yan again.
When Ning Shu found out, she just gave an indifferent smile without saying anything. True love was nothing more than this. They hadn’t had to struggle to make ends meet since they had an unending source of wealth for them to enjoy a incomparably romantic life. They could spend all day doing nothing but getting hung up over loving someone that loved someone else and such trifling matters.
It was an incomparably beautiful love unstained with the reality of the world ah.
#comment: What I wrote in the last chapter, the Chinese term for it is ‘chicken soup.’ It refers to texts that are heartwarming, inspirational, and often passed around a lot on social media in order to gain attention due to the feel-good vibes that quickly gets annoying. But every once in a while, a little chicken soup is good, right? Just like how some cynical salt is good after some (a lot of) sweets.
Haha, writing chicken soup was how I got into to college, so *wink wink* (US) college-bound students should start thinking about their past experiences and how to make some good chicken soup out of that.
