Chapter 1278: There Were Way More Things Waiting for You
Ning Shu was watering the flowers at home when she got a phone call from Ye Xi. Ye Xi said that Jing Shaoze and his mother had both been hospitalized and asked her to hurry to the hospital.
When Ning Shu heard this, she set down the watering can, took off her shawl, and went upstairs to get changed. After grabbing her Jiuxin pills and putting them in her pocket, she headed straight to the hospital.
Jing Shaoze’s father was already in the ward when she arrived. His expression was solemn and his forehead was covered with sweat. It was clear that he had also just rushed here.
Ye Xi was in the middle of talking to Jing Shaoze’s father but when she saw Ning Shu come in, she immediately stopped talking.
When Jing Shaoze’s father saw Ning Shu, he sighed and his brows furrowed. Ning Shu walked to Jing Shaoze and saw that his face was deathly pale. There was no color even in his lips.
“What happened? How did both of them end up hospitalized?” asked Ning Shu.
Jing Shaoze’s father sighed heavily. “Let’s talk after we get back.”
Jing Shaoze and his mother were just so overwhelmed by the news that they couldn’t take it and fainted. It wasn’t like they were ill, so they soon woke up one after another.
As soon as Jing Shaoze’s mother woke up, she hugged Jing Shaoze’s father and started bawling. While sobbing, she cried, “What do we do? What are we supposed to do? What sin did we commit to deserve this?”
Jing Shaoze’s mother cried loudly without any regard for the fact that they were in a public venue. Her voice was also very loud so it made all the nurses and doctors look over.
Jing Shaoze’s father berated in a low voice, “Shut up! Wait until we get home to talk.”
The two were soon discharged from the hospital. Jing Shaoze’s father gave the hospital some money to destroy Jing Shaoze’s medical case.
If it was revealed that the only heir of the Jing family was infertile, it would cause a commotion in the company.
Ning Shu helped Jing Shaoze, who had been silent this entire time, into the car.
Ye Xi was standing outside the car and hesitating about whether or not to get on. This was their family affair so was it appropriate for her to listen?
“You get in the car too,” said Jing Shaoze’s father to Ye Xi.
Ye Xi had no choice but to get in the car.
The car soon arrived in front of the villa. Having gotten home, Jing Shaoze could no longer suppress his emotions and he started smashing everything within reach in the living room like a madman.
Pieces of shattered vases littered the ground and all the tea tables and chairs had been overturned. The room was a complete mess.
At last, Jing Shaoze collapsed weakly to the ground and gasped for breath.
Jing Shaoze’s father looked at Jing Shaoze and said, “Are you done venting? How disappointing. It’s just a small matter, yet you’re overreacting so much.”
“My son! Oh my poor son! Shaoze…” sobbed Jing Shaoze’s mother. She covered her mouth as she looked at Jing Shaoze through her tears.
Ning Shu’s face was expressionless. On the contrary, Ye Xi was the one who showed heartache.
Jing Shaoze’s father had the servants clean up the house, then gave them a holiday and had them leave the villa.
“Dear, what do we do?” Jing Shaoze’s mother looked towards Jing Shaoze’s father in a daze. In the end, Jing Shaoze’s mother was a woman. Whenever something big occurred, she could only look to the head of the family for a decision.
Jing Shaoze’s father glanced at Ning Shu and Ye Xi, then said in a low voice, “Don’t go around talking about this.”
“Yes,” replied Ning Shu and Ye Xi in unison.
Jing Shaoze got up with difficulty and walked over to hug Ning Shu while murmuring, “Jingjing, Jingjing…”
Ning Shu consoled Jing Shaoze with a gentle smile, “It’s alright, this is no big deal.”
There were way more things waiting for you.
