Chapter 1285: Issue of Inheritance
Since the adopted child had no inheritance rights, what was the point of allowing her to adopt a child? Just to coax her?
“Why do you want us to adopt a child if the child won’t have inheritance rights?” asked Ning Shu
Jing Shaoze’s father glanced towards Jing Shaoze who was sitting on the sofa with his head down, then said, “The child can keep you guys company.”
Ning Shu narrowed her eyes. It seemed that her father-in-law had accepted the fact that Jing Shaoze was sterile.
Ning Shu curved her lips into a smile as she asked, “Father, Big Brother Shaoze is your only son. Could it be that you want to pass the Jing family to someone else?”
Jing Shaoze’s father looked displeased as he glanced at Ning Shu and said, “It’s too early to say anything about this now. Shaoze is my son so he naturally has the right to inherit Jing family.”
“Shaoze only has a physical ailment. He’s still my son so the Jing family will be passing on to him,” said Jing Shaoze’s father.
“But Big Brother Shaoze and I have no children.” Ning Shu raised her eyebrows.
Jing Shaoze’s father rubbed his forehead and said, “I’ve thought about things for a night and I’ve decided to have a surrogacy.”
Jing Shaoze turned to look at his father. His voice was very hoarse due to the damage caused by the cigarettes and alcohol. “Dad, you’re going to have a surrogacy?”
Jing Shaoze’s father nodded. “I’ve decided to have another son. I’ll pass the Jing family to you, and when the time comes, you’ll pass the Jing family to him. “
Then that means he was just a middle station. Jing Shaoze pressed his lips together tightly. His pupils were visibly trembling and he couldn’t speak for a long time. He couldn’t have children, so the future he had been confident about had now become very confusing.
The Jing family was originally rightfully his, but now there was going to be a younger brother who he had to compete with for the right to inherit the Jing family.
Ning Shu glanced at Jing Shaoze’s mother who had just come out of the kitchen holding a bowl, then asked her father-in-law, “Then have you figured out who would carry the pregnancy? Since she’ll be a surrogate for the Jing family, she has to be in good health. “
When Jing Shaoze’s mother heard what Ning Shu said, she was so shocked that she dropped the bowl. The bowl of noodles fell on the ground and the hot soup splashed on her feet, causing burning pain.
But right now she had no time to worry about these things. She walked up to Jing Shaoze’s father and asked in a sharp tone, “You want to find a surrogate?”
“Calm down.” Jing Shaoze’s father could tell that she was about to go crazy. “Aren’t we still discussing it right now?”
“I can’t calm down! Why do you want to find a surrogate? I absolutely won’t agree to a surrogate! You’ll do it over my dead body.” Jing Shaoze’s mother was very stirred up. She was scared that her husband would end up like her son and end up personally taking on the task of making the surrogate pregnant.
She didn’t regret looking for a surrogate mother for her son, but she couldn’t allow herself to end up in Ni Jing’s shoes. Ni Jing was stupid, but she wasn’t!
“What other option is there aside from a surrogacy? Or is it that you want the Jing family to die out?” berated Jing Shaoze’s father. “If you make trouble again, I’ll kick you out of here! “
“Haven’t I treated you well all these past years?” said Jing Shaoze’s father coldly. “You were my only woman and I only had one child. The Jing family is now facing the threat of having no descendants, so if you keep being so unreasonable, we should just get divorced.”
Jing Shaoze’s mother opened her mouth but couldn’t speak for a moment. Afterwards, she softened her expression and said stubbornly, “Why do you have to find a surrogate? It’s not like I can’t give birth.”
“If you can give birth, why was Shaoze the only child we had all these past years? You didn’t give birth while you were young, so what could you possibly give birth to at such an old age?” said Jing Shaoze’s father, not bothering to be polite at all. “Can you be a little more sensible?”
“I…” Jing Shaoze’s mother was livid with rage and started screaming hysterically, “Will the surrogate mother be surrogating our child, or yours and the surrogate mother’s child?”
“What are you talking about? Stop saying nonsense!” Jing Shaoze’s father glanced at Ning Shu. “Can’t you think before you speak? Of course the child will be ours.”
Jing Shaoze was in a complete daze as he listened to this exchange. His entire world had abruptly flipped upside down. He felt like he had been abandoned by this world.
