Chapter 1259: Born of Love, Not Resentment
Ye Xi had originally thought that it was already unbearable pain to have to become a surrogate, she had never imagined that there would be something even more shameful waiting for her.
Mrs. Jing wanted her to get pregnant naturally with Jing Shaoze, then give birth to the successor of the Jing family.
“Ni Jing is Jing Shaoze’s actual wife. The child Jing Shaoze and I make won’t be legitimate. I…” Ye Xi looked a little sad. The most important part was that once she gave birth to this child, this child would have nothing to do with her anymore.
Jing Shaoze’s mother pressed her lips together, then said, “The Jing family had married a sick woman. If we also end up with a sick child, the Jing family would be the laughingstock of upper class society! You only need to understand your own responsibilities. If you give birth to a child, your father’s company will be fine and your child will be the future successor of the Jing family.”
“But this is my child.” Ye Xi pressed her lips together tightly, her face pale.
Jing Shaoze’s mother looked displeased. “Since you’ve taken the money, you need to do your job. Ni Jing’s mother’s family is quite wealthy. Your child will have a great maternal family and also the Jing family, so he’ll have a bright future ahead of him. Meanwhile, your duty is simply to not appear in front of this child.”
Ye Xi’s eyes reddened and tears overflowed.
When Jing Shaoze’s mother saw Ye Xi like this, she said mildly, “If you regret things now, you can still turn back. However, there is no way I’ll support your family for free.”
Ye Xi didn’t speak. As of now, she had already lost her chastity and without funds from the Jing family, her father’s company would go bankrupt.
“Since you’ve decided to become a surrogate mother, what you should be doing now is making sure to take good care of your own body. In addition to the turnover money for your father’s company, I’ll give you an extra five million for nutrition expenses.”
Jing Shaoze’s mother was very generous. Ye Xi didn’t really want to accept such alms from Jing Shaoze’s mother, but the things she was doing now already made others look down on her.
Refusing only made her seem pretentious.
Jing Shaoze’s mother sat down by the bed and patted Ye Xi’s hand as she said, “Actually, I really like you. You’re very filial and Shaoze also likes you a lot. Although Shaoze’s gentle, he’s a very decisive person. No one can force him to do anything.”
“Back then, he was determined to marry the Ni family’s daughter who was born with heart disease.” As Jing Shaoze’s mother talked about Ni Jing, her tone became conspicuously worse. It was clear that she didn’t like Ni Jing.
“The fact that he’s willing to let you get pregnant naturally shows that he doesn’t actually dislike you. It’s also good for the child if his biological father and mother love each other,” said Jing Shaoze’s mother softly. “I’d like my grandson to be born because of love, not resentment.”
“Believe me, I know my son. He does like you. Compared to looking so worried every day like this, why not focus on taking good care of your body? This child is also your child. You need to be responsible for your child.” Jing Shaoze’s mother perfectly grasped the method of using both carrot and stick.
Ye Xi didn’t really believe what Jing Shaoze’s mother said about Jing Shaoze liking her. Jing Shaoze acted like he was very disgusted with her and was always mocking her. How could he possibly like her?
The one he liked was his wife. He was always gentle and considerate towards her, and when he look towards her, his expression was filled with tenderness. He always carefully cherished his wife. That was what actual love was.
Furthermore, Jing Shaoze was always reminding her that she wasn’t allowed to ruin their relationship.
Ye Xi couldn’t really understand it. He was clearly such an elegant and noble man, so why was he so mean and evil in front of her? Every time Jing Shaoze spoke to her, she would feel like a knife was cutting up her heart.
She was a lowly, disgusting surrogate mother. She could bear with any insult as long as she could save her father’s company.
Ye Xi tenaciously endured all of Jing Shaoze’s insults and humiliation.
However, she wasn’t aware that the more stubborn she was, the more Jing Shaoze wanted to humiliate her. He subconsciously wanted to conquer her.
He wanted to see this stubborn woman admit defeat.
Ning Shu sat in front of the computer and listened to this entire conversation. She sneered. Jing Shaoze’s mother had already made such a solemn guarantee about things before a trace of the child even showed up. It was a question whether a child could even be made at this point.
Ning Shu saved the video of this conversation.
