She loved Qin Chu, so she treated Qin Yumin like her own father…
“Mian, thank you for not holding a grudge because of my wife and my wrongdoings in the past and thank you for standing on Qin Chu’s side all this time. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry we are towards you, your mother, and your deceased stepfather…”
“Don’t say that, Dad. Let bygones be bygones… I really don’t blame you guys for it anymore,” Huo Mian said sincerely.
“I think this is karma… That was the only time I’ve done something against my morals, so it’s my turn to suffer. I know what I have, so you don’t have to hide it from me anymore… Dr. Liu told me everything, I guess I won’t have much time left…”
“Dad… I know you’ll get better.”
“I know my body better than anyone, so stop trying to make me feel better… I guess I’m just not lucky enough to meet my grandchild…” Qin Yumin’s eyes became misty as he said this.
Feeling guilty, Huo Mian looked down and placed her hands on her knee. “Dad, I’m sorry, it’s all my fault, I…”
“No, it’s not your fault, it’s just my fate. If I die, please take good care of your mom for me… she has a vicious tongue, but she’s actually a great woman who’s really straightforward. She had misunderstandings against you only because she was blinded by the words of others. I know she’ll be sad if I die, so you and Qin Chu should take her traveling. If Qin Chu’s busy, you should take her. Just don’t let her be sad and alone. Everyone will die one day, and I’ve enjoyed my life. I lived abundantly and luxuriously, and have a great son and daughter-in-law, so I don’t have any regrets…”
“Dad…” Huo Mian began sobbing; she felt like her father-in-law was leaving his will…
“Mian… I know how much Chu loves you, so I hope you’ll never betray him, okay?”
“Please don’t give up on him. He’s a man of a few words and may sometimes seem indifferent, but you’re the one he cares most about you. He told me he wanted to marry you when he was younger, but I just thought he was an arrogant little brat. Seven years later, he came back and married you… this was something I never thought would happen. The truth is, my son and I are alike. Once we have our heart set on something, we won’t give up until we die. When I was a young man, so many women tried to seduce me but failed, because the only woman I ever wanted was your mom. I know she bet her life-long happiness on me, so I can’t afford to let her lose…”
Huo Mian was sobbing so much that she couldn’t speak anymore…
“Don’t cry, people die. I’ll be fine…” Qin Yumin smiled.
“Dad… we don’t want you to go. Qin Chu and Mom can’t live without you.”
“You have to live on without me, I hope to be your family in my next life as well… Once you have children, please remember to take them to my grave. I want to meet them and let them know how much I love them.”
Upon hearing this, Huo Mian sobbed even harder and could barely contain her crying.
At the same time…
In the adjoining room, Qin Chu quietly wiped away his tears.
He was dealing with company matters on the phone and didn’t fall asleep at all. Upon hearing Huo Mian’s voice, he was just about to walk out when he heard his father and wife’s conversation.
He felt his heart rip apart…
Qin Yumin was his father, a man who had taken care of him his entire life. Qin Chu’s childhood wasn’t as happy and filled with laughter as that of ordinary children, because Qin Yumin was extremely strict on him. However, after he grew up, Qin Yumin respected and trusted his son enough to directly hand GK over to Qin Chu after he came back to the country.
His father’s illness, along with the company’s incident, felt like constant blows to his stomach. It was as if a giant rock was pushing down on his heart, and he couldn’t breathe…
His father’s words to Huo Mian sounded like his last words…
Just then, he heard Qin Yumin say, “The truth is, there’s something still bothering me.”
