"You want me to say less? Look at everything that your precious daughter has done. Which one of those things hasn't brought shame to our family?"
Ye Qing lowered her head as she listened. Her eyes were red from crying. When she raised her head, her eyes were dripping with tears as she looked at Father Ye, "Dad, I'm sorry. I know I was wrong. Could you forgive me and let it go?"
In the past, Ye Qing had been their pride and joy. She was stubborn and never admitted defeat, so he had thought she would argue until the end. But halfway through his tirade, she had lowered her head and acknowledged her wrongdoing.
Father Ye didn't feel right to continue after his daughter had apologized. He could only angrily say to Mother Ye, "It's because you spoiled her too much!"
"She's my daughter! What's wrong with me spoiling her?" Mother Ye looked at her daughter in distress. Her daughter had lost a lot of weight in only a month. "Qingqing, mom has thought things through in the past month. Mom won't force you anymore. You can marry whoever you want. Mom won't stop you. It's fine as long as you're happy."
"Where's that boy? Why didn't he come back with you?"
Next to them, Father Ye sneered. "From how I see it, that man isn't the type that takes responsibility!"
Choked up, Ye Qing said, "We broke up."
Father Ye and Mother Ye stared blankly at her. "Broke up? What happen? Why did that happen?"
Mother Ye remembered her daughter had done all sorts of things - like going on a hunger strike and running off to elope - in order to be with that Lin Zhan. At that time, she had the resolution to burn her bridges to commit an irreversible course. It hadn't even been a month. Why had they broken up?
Ye Qing mustered up a smile. "Mom, let's talk about him later. When I was outside earlier, I saw Ye Zhen. And that man in the wheelchair, who was he?"
As soon as this was brought up, the fire in Mother Ye's heart rose up again. She poked Ye Qing's forehead. "You, ah. If I had known back then that you would break up with that man so quickly, I would have never allowed you to run away! That was the Lu Family's Lu Beichuan, the one that had a car accident a year ago and fell into a coma. He's the one I told you about. Old Master Lu came to our house and wanted you to marry his grandson in hopes that the marriage would bring him good luck. A wise person had told Old Master Lu that if you married Lu Beichuan, he would wake up earlier."
Speaking of this, Mother Ye sighed. "The Lu Family has such a good background. Our family wouldn't even measure up to their family. Even though Lu Beichuan was a comatose person at the time, the doctor had said he would wake up one day. But, you! Because of a poor boy, you tossed aside that chance to be Mrs. Lu!"
"That... Ye Zhen, what's up with her?"
"What do you mean what's with her?" Father Ye sneered. "Your younger sister is much more sensible than you. She was willing to marry a comatose person to help our family. Still, your younger sister is lucky. That Lu Beichuan woke up a month after they got married."
Mother Ye glared at him. "What do you mean she's lucky? That was Qingqing's luck! The current Mrs. Lu's name is Ye Qing, not Ye Zhen! Qingqing, ah, at the time your dad's company was in a difficult situation. There wasn't enough money to cover expenses. And you ran off that boy. We didn't have any other choices. We could only marry off Ye Zhen under your name. Don't... Don't be angry. Fortunately, there was Ye Zhen. Otherwise, our family wouldn't be able to keep living in this villa."
Ye Qing smiled. "Mom, how could I blame younger sister? I understand what happened. But, isn't this matter a bit too unfair to her?"
"What's fair and unfair? For her to get the role of Mrs. Lu, that should be enough for her to wake up in the middle of the night to smile in happiness!"
Ye Qing smiled and appeasingly said to Mother Ye, "Mom, you can't say it like that. After all, this matter is my fault. If I hadn't run off with Lin Zhan back then, she wouldn't have been forced into marrying into the Lu Family. Back then, neither of you asked Ye Zhen if she was willing or not, right?"
After Father Ye and Mother Ye heard these words, they were silent for a moment.
