Hi, everybody. I have recently started a new novel called Strict Wife of the ’70s Manages the Household. It already has 12 chapters. You can check it out HERE.

In some way, it could be said that Nie Jiqing’s attitude would determine Sheng Man’s fate. Then if that is the case, what if Sheng Man realized that Nie Jiqing’s love for her was no longer as stable as before?
Ye Zhi’s mind suddenly became clear.
Sheng Man was acting so weird today. Could it be related to what happened back then?
Sheng Man had been working hard to please Nie Jiqing recently, desperately trying any means so that she could grasp Nie Jiqing’s heart firmly and secure her place.
However, she was distressed by the fact that no matter what she did, she couldn’t seem to move her. Nie Jiqing’s bland response chilled her whole being in panic and trepidation.
Sheng Man thought for a long time and finally decided to make a bowl of chicken soup for Nie Jiqing.
After arriving at the Sheng Mansion, Sheng Man put down the chicken soup in front of Nie Jiqing and said in a soft tone: “Mom, I made chicken soup for you. Can you tell me how it tastes?”
Sheng Man also stretched out her hand in front of Nie Jiqing and cried aggrievedly: “Mom, I accidentally cut my hand to make this chicken soup.”
Of course, Sheng Man didn’t actually make the chicken soup herself. She simply ordered the chef to do it. Her hand was also accidentally cut last time so it was a perfect opportunity to act cute and indulge herself in Nie Jiqing’s care, just like before.
Nie Jiqing indeed saw the wound on Sheng Man’s hand, but her emotions did not fluctuate much.
If Sheng Man had been injured before, she would have already been very worried. But now when she saw that Sheng Man was hurt, it didn’t cause a ripple in her heart at all.
What was wrong with her? Why had her feelings for Sheng Man changed so much in a short period of time?
Nie Jiqing was a little confused.
Over the years, how did she manage to tolerate Sheng Man’s attitude of presumptuousness and unrestrained spending of Sheng family’s money?
Nie Jiqing’s thoughts surged. She remembered that after she lost her beloved daughter that year, Sheng Man moved to the Sheng family.
Sheng Man was very well-behaved at that time and Nie Jiqing was shrouded in grief as she blamed herself for not protecting her daughter well. Due to various factors, she adopted Sheng Man and raised her as her daughter, filling the missing void in her heart.
Nie Jiqing’s expression became a little sad as she thought about the whole situation.
In fact, she didn’t have to do it…no…maybe she had to, but it was more like she forced herself to accept it because if she didn’t do so, the lingering shadow of losing her daughter would never cease to haunt her.
Because of this, she always saw her lost daughter in Sheng Man and indulged her greatly.
But once she found out that Sheng Man was not as what she had imagined her to be—no, it was more accurate to say that once the dream she constructed for herself had finally shattered itself to reality, the feelings she had for Sheng Man also slowly began to fade away.
Sheng Man felt that Nie Jiqing’s eyes were very strange. Although Nie Jiqing was clearly looking at her, it felt more like she was seeing someone through her.
Sheng Man felt bad and panicked, feeling that Nie Jiqing was acting very strangely. Her voice trembled: “Mom, what’s the matter?”
Nie Jiqing came back to her senses and her emotions began to stabilize. Nie Jiqing looked at Sheng Man and said, “Is the chicken soup really made by you?”
Sheng Man replied quickly: “Of course.”
Nie Jiqing said, “Thank you.”
Nie Jiqing only took a few mouthfuls before putting down her spoon. “I haven’t slept well recently so my appetite is not very good.”
This was just an excuse Nie Jiqing casually made, but Sheng Man really believed it.
Sheng Man stayed with Nie Jiqing for a while before she got up and left, ready to go to work.
After Sheng Man left, Nie Jiqing looked at the chicken soup which had gone cold on the table. Sheng Man said that she made it by herself, but her instinct told her otherwise.
Nie Jiqing got up and drove to Sheng Man’s house.
The housekeeper was a little surprised when she saw Nie Jiqing. Just as she was about to speak, Nie Jiqing headed directly to the kitchen.
When Nie Jiqing arrived in the kitchen, she looked at the chef and asked, “Did the young lady ask you to make chicken soup for her today?”
