This crazy old woman would not be for long in this world.
Fang Ruchang looked at some medical certifications he found in the grey-white sack.
Yang Ping had turned crazy and left, so she definitely would not care about her personal items, which had been picked up by Fang Ruchang. Of course, Fang Ruchang intended to destroy them immediately; however, he knew little about Yang Ping, so he kept the sack for the time being.
As putting it down, Fang Ruchang lighted up a cigarette, smoking slowly while murmuring, "Though she won’t live long, she’ll always be a trouble. I cannot have anyone else know the fact that Jiping is not my biological son."
He gazed at Yang Ping who was outside the car. She was like a zombie wandering the road--- He came after her from the inside to outside of the estate.
The housing estate was located near the river… However, the forest landscape in the estate was nicely designed. People had already gone for work; the riverside path was far away for seniors. Therefore, at present, nobody was seen now except for some occasionally passing cars.
Fang Ruchang restlessly tucked all the things back into the sack, rushing out of the car door. He came to the back of Yang Ping, trying to shake the rattle-drum he held.
Hearing the sound, Yang Ping paused her actions, turning about gradually. "Baby Tiger… Baby Tiger… is that you?"
Fang Ruchang glanced at the rattle-drum in his hand and furiously stuffed it into the sack before throwing it into the river. "Look at our son, he’s right over there!"
Yang Ping subconsciously watched the sack flew out and eventually fell into the water, which was the reason she got agitated. Both her hands grasped the handrail on the river bank, "Baby Tiger! Baby Tiger! Mother is coming to save you, don’t be afraid! Don’t be afraid!"
She then climbed over it.
Fang Ruchang looked coldly at Yang Ping rolling down the lawn, before finally falling into water, "A lunatic fell into the water, don’t blame anyone else."
The Wu Family was not merely a wealthy family. If they got to know he had been cheating them so many years…
Fang Ruchang mumbled, "Don’t blame me, I won’t give up everything I owned currently, even if there is a little bit possibility…"
Viewing that figure struggling before sinking into the water, Fang Ruchang looked around, driving his car to leave hastily.
There were neither other people nor cars on the road. The timing and place were as if the heavens were helping him. He raised Fang Jiping for over 20 years and knew his son was softhearted and irresolute in nature.
‘Then, let me make a decision for him!’
‘It is not only the iPhone that has such good photography capabilities.’
Looking at the clear photo, Luo Qiu, that came out from nowhere leaned against the handrail near the river. He even heard the sentence said by Fang Ruchang just now.
A figure emerged out of the river slowly and was sent back to the river bank along with the grey sack.
Pressing the save button, Luo Qiu was lost in thought. In his thoughts, the soul that contained everything in this weak body in front, now seemed so dim and gloomy.
Looking at miserable look showed on Yang Ping’s face, Luo Qiu touched her forehead softly, saying low, "Fall asleep, have a good dream for now."
While grabbing the aunt’s arm, Luo Qiu brought her away from the river bank.
Finally, the layout of the stage had been finished in advance. The manager was nice and had Manman leave early.
While thinking about the matter of having a dinner with her boyfriend in the evening, Manman went back home by bike in a pleasant mood. She intended to take a shower first, because a girl that stank of sweat was impolite.
Perhaps she was too happy, the bike suddenly stumbled over a small stone. Carelessly, she fell off the bike and things rolled out.
Fortunately, she wasn’t hurt.
Yet, the things in the bike basket had rolled out. She was crossing the bridge and had almost got to the bridgehead. The items rolled down from it.
Manman irritably tried to look for the things that dropped into water. Her good mood totally disappeared.
"Oh my god… someone’s drowning!"
In Manman’s sight, there was a woman lying on the river bank, that seem to have fainted!
"You can’t come out for dinner?"
"No, I met a drowned person on my way home. I’m at the hospital now and this aunt hasn’t woke up yet. I cannot find the contact information of her family. So, I want to wait here until she wakes up. Sorry, I’ll make up for you next time!"
Fang Jiping was planning to go home too. When he almost arrived at the estate, he received the phone call from his girlfriend, "Which hospital are you in? let me go to have a look!"
"No, no! it’s not a big deal! Don’t you have an important performance tomorrow? Don’t worry about me, take a good rest tonight or your father will blame you if you don’t do well. I’ve grown up, it’s OK to look after a patient."
Maybe this was the character that attracted him from among so many excellent women.
Fang Jiping didn’t argue with Manman. "Fine. Then I’ll go to the hospital to see you promptly after my performance, if you’re still there."
"Yeah! Eat enough for dinner."
Fang Jiping smiled faintly.
He came out of the taxi. There were two cars in his family. One had died last night and the other one was driven by his father, so he could only travel by taxi.
However, looking at the estate entrance, Fang Jiping was afraid of walking in… He knew there might be a pair of eyes gazing at him at somewhere.
Fang Jiping hovered outside the estate. Seeing this, a security guard suddenly headed out of the guard booth, "Mr. Fang, may I help you?"
Fang Jiping looked at this security guard, words blurted out, "Sir, have all the cleaners finished work?"
The opposite party seemed to be stunned.
"Do you have anything to do with them? They should have finished work now."
Fang Jiping said randomly, "Nothing, just there’s some garbage that should be thrown out. Since they finished work, then forget it"
Since they finished work…they perhaps left already. Fang Jiping let out a sigh of relief.
To his surprise, this security guard said, "If so, there should be one that can be found. She is new and came in recent days and lives here. Let me find her for you."
Fang Jiping gaped, she might be…
"Who is that aunt?"
The security guard didn’t care about the question, sighing and telling him, "She’s a poor aunt. Several days ago, she came for a job, claiming that she doesn’t even need money and just asked some food. She spoke to the point of crying and even knelt down here."
He pointed a place outside the guard booth, "It’s right over there."
Fang Jiping lips quivered, gazing at the place the security guard pointed, absent-minded with red eyes.
"Mr. Fang? Mr. Fang? Do you still want to call cleaners? I can help you."
"No… no." Fang Jiping shook his head, "Leave it for tomorrow."
With the words, he rushed into the estate.
That security guard saw Fang Jiping leaving and shook his head. He closed the window of the guard booth, sitting down.
While sitting, he suddenly vanished into the air, disappearing from the booth.
Soon, someone climbed up from the ground in the booth.
It was the security guard that was at work.
"It’s weird… why did I fall asleep? Did my supervisor see that?"
After arriving at his home, distraction arose on Fang Jiping’s face… He couldn’t find her.
Thus he had to come back to this cold home.
At this time, Fang Ruchang had been sitting near the table and eating. In addition, the servant had finished work… She wouldn’t live here, rather, she would leave after cooking dinner.
Looking at Fang Jiping going upstairs, Fang Ruchang asked abruptly.
"No, I feel a little tired." Fang Jiping shook his head.
Fang Ruchang replied indifferently, "Physically tired or heart tired?"
Fang Jiping stopped, showing an unnatural expression, "Dad… I don’t know what you’re talking about."
Fang Ruchang continued eating dinner and did not turn his head to him, "Today, I met a cleaner here. She came to me saying she wants to look for her son."
Fang Jiping gave a start, walking close to him, blurting out, "She… what did she say?"
Fang Ruchang sneered, "What else she would say? That crazy woman cried and screamed in front of me, doesn’t she want money? I gave her some, and she left without a word."
Fang Ruchang turned about, looking at Fang Jiping, sneering, "She laughed happily."
Fang Jiping stepped back, lips trembled inconceivably, "How come…"
Fang Ruchang stood up and walked to Fang Jiping, speaking coolly, "Don’t you understand? I don’t know how she could appear here so luckily… However, the woman of that year lost you because of gambling, aren’t you still aware of her nature? Are you still so naïve and consider that she came to compensate you? Well, she might have such thoughts, but apparently she received my money. Do you know what it represents?"
Fang Ruchang added coldly, "It means you are no match for the money! Are you planning to go back with that kind of person?"
Fang Jiping lowered his head, staying silent.
"I won’t blame you for hiding this matter to me. I was raised by my mother too and know that something like that is hard to give up." Fang Ruchang said, "But, you should be clear of how hard we worked to get today’s life. You should think about it thoroughly, that if it’s worth it to give up everything you own now for a person who abandoned you twice just for money!"
"I… I will go back to my bedroom first."
He walked to his room upstairs, step by step.
Supported by the stair handrail.
