“we’re…” shen mngxi looked as if he wanted to explain .
“mingxi, let’s eat while they are hot . ”
“okay . ”
after wei ying interrupted him, he didn’t continue .
wei ying had thought shen mingxi wouldn’t give her any gifts today, but to her surprise, he gave her a gift and a rose at this late hour . wei ying felt happy and content even though their relationship was still at a low point .
“are you still… in touch with huo yanyan?” after a moment of consideration, wei ying asked .
“yes . i visit her regularly at the psychiatric center and bring her tiantian’s photos from singapore . ”
“how is she emotionally?”
“not very good . she curses and hurts people . the doctors said that they use sedatives on her occasionally . ”
“it seems she has completely collapsed emotionally . ”
“yeah . after all, she had gone through a lot… and she just can’t let things go . ”
“how about you, mingxi? are you really going to take care of tiantian for all her life? will she be grateful to you?”
wei ying felt huo yanyan’s daughter had a defective character .
tiantian wasn’t as good to talk to as other kids, being full of hostility to everyone .
wei ying’s thoughts were not ungrounded .
she had helped find school and housemaids for tiantian as the kid studied abroad .
one of wei ying’s besties had gone to singapore since high school and would come back to china each holiday .
now the girl was a high-level executive in a well-known company in singapore .
she had helped wei ying make the arrangements for tiantian since wei ying had asked her to take care of tiantian who was studying there alone .
however, wei ying’s bestie had stopped visiting tiantian after a few times, saying the kid had a bad character; even the housemaids couldn’t put up with her and the current one was the seventh housemaid she had .
tiantian found fault with each of the housemaids, from filipinos to indians to taiwanese .
besides, instead of studying, she was quite extravagant in spending money .
once she spent one million yuan with shen mingxi’s credit card and didn’t tell him what she had bought .
wei ying’s bestie told wei ying to persuade shen mingxi to wash his hands off the kid .
but wei ying knew it was impossible .
“tiantian has no one to turn to; she only has me now . ” shen mingxi poured some vinegar into his plate and sighed .
“but i think giving her lots of money is not a good way to show your kindness . the key is teaching her to be a good person . kids are simple-minded and don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong, so the adults must teach them . my brother’s son yunchu is a thoughtful kid and almost everyone, including my parents and sister huo mian’s twins, likes him . ”
“i know what you mean, ying . but it takes time . right now, tiantian is resentful towards me and doesn’t want to talk to me . ”
“maybe it’s better to bring her back?”
“forget it . it might not be a good thing to bring her back . my mother has always disliked her… i think it’s better for her to stay abroad . ”
whenever he thought of these things, shen mingxi felt torn .
no one had noticed that wei ying had slipped out to see shen mingxi .
meanwhile, lu yan held huo mian’s neck to show off her loot .
“sis, i’ll tell you a secret . ”
“what is it?” huo mian looked at her in puzzlement .
“qiao fei came to see me tonight . ”
“where is he?”
“he’s gone . ”
“gone?” huo mian froze .
“yeah . he stayed here for only five hours . ”
“um… that’s willful of him . ”
“can you guess what gifts he gave me?” lu yan asked smugly .
