Chapter 774: Shen Yuanqi’s Memories
In the garden, Shen Yuanqi was only wearing a wool sweater. He had a pair of shears in his hand and was trimming the bonsai. His wrinkled face looked very calm. His eyes were focused on the work in his hands. He looked calm and peaceful.
Xia Ning was standing not too far away. Seeing his shaky movements, she suddenly realized that she did not hate him much.
It was a matter of the previous generation. The people who should hate him was Grandmother and Mother. She was just feeling unfair for them. But now that she saw him being alone, she felt that this person had nothing to do with them.
If he had cared even a little bit for her mother 16 years ago, she would not have done this.
But there were no ifs in this world. This person was so cold-blooded and heartless.
Now that he was alone, it was their biggest revenge.
“Your grandmother used to like to play with these flowers.” Shen Yuanqi’s voice sounded suddenly.
Xia Ning came back to herself and darted a look at Shen Yuanqi. Realizing that he was talking to her, she said calmly, “Really?”
Shen Yuanqi continued, “Your grandmother and I grew up together. She was very smart, her studies were better than me and she was more sensible than me. At that time, your great-grandfather liked her very much and almost treated her like his daughter.”
Xia Ning frowned and listened quietly.
“For as long as I could remember, I knew that I would marry her. For as long as she could remember, she knew that she could only marry me in the future.” Shen Yuanqi stopped what he was doing and looked at the pine tree not too far away.
Xia Ning understood that marriage in that era was the order of the parents. Love was not important at all.
“When I was young, I always felt that the world outside was beautiful and free. Home was like a cage that trapped my freedom.” Shen Yuanqi sighed. “Maybe it was because I knew she wouldn’t run away and would be by my side for the rest of my life. Maybe I wanted her to put more effort on me and not just treat me as her benefactor’s son. I made an unforgivable mistake.”
“She’s usually gentle and considerate. I was afraid that she would know, but I also wanted her to know. I wanted to know if she had me in her heart, but I didn’t dare to take the risk. Back then, many people were gossiping about me with those celebrities and socialites. She always smiled and said nothing. I think she probably didn’t love me. Only if she didn’t love me would she be so indifferent to her husband’s cheating.”
“After that, my first mistake gave birth to a fruit. That girl was my secretary. She helped me with all her heart. She even knew my preferences better than my wife. She begged me to let her keep the child. At that time, Yunning’s good friend was wooing her and asking her to leave me. I was angry at that time and pitied the secretary. Because she did not want to follow me in name, I asked her to keep the child. Who would have thought that was the beginning of bad luck?” Shen Yuanqi fell silent.
Xia Ning looked at him and roughly understood what he meant. This kind of scene was very familiar. Every cheater would say it was an accident. Every cheater who let their mistress give birth to the child would say that the mistress was kind and the child was innocent. Therefore, he had to be responsible.
They held responsibility for people outside, but what about the one at home?! Who did she offend?
“So the mistress and the kid came to find you and my grandmother divorced you?” Xia Ning said calmly. Needless to say, this should be what happened. How could the mistresses stay put? Only those men believed it.
