The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 148
Edited By Adrian
When Xu Xinduo was gone for her checkup, Yin Hua asked Tong Yan: “Has she always been like this?”
“Well, her body is in terrible shape.” After saying that, Tong Yan continued to explain Xu Xinduo’s problems to his mother, including the time she got frostbite as a child, her gastrointestinal problems due to poor quality of food, her dysmenorrhea, and her poor immune system.
Yin Hua felt a little uncomfortable after hearing everything.
She sat in silence, slowly tapping her fingers repeatedly on a small round table.
Suddenly an old memory came to her mind.
She remembered that there was a time when Tong Yan was extremely anorexic and ate very little, causing him to become very thin.
On top of that, Tong Yan suddenly became very cautious and anxious. He was always looking around nervously, as his eyes revealed deep uneasiness. His trembling appearance made people want to hold Tong Yan tightly into their arms to comfort him.
On that day, Yin Hua felt that she had to stay with her son, so she started chatting with him. Tong Yan didn’t answer much and looked at her very nervously. In the end, she asked if he wanted to eat anything. After a little hesitation, Tong Yan agreed.
Yin Hua was overjoyed as it was exactly what she wanted, because Tong Yan had eaten almost nothing for the past few days. She asked Tong Yan what he wanted to eat. Tong Yan answered cautiously: “Instant noodles.”
After saying that, he looked at Yin Hua pitifully, as if his request was too presumptuous, even extravagant.
It was just instant noodles.
It was extremely cheap.
Yin Hua asked someone to make it for him. When Tong Yan saw the instant noodles, his eyes lit up in a flash. As he ate the noodles with chopsticks, he secretly looked up at Yin Hua carefully.
Tong Yan at that age had small faces and big eyes. When he lowered his head and raised his eyes to peek at Yin Hua, his eyes looked surprisingly big.
Tong Yan ate the instant noodles so carefully and cherished it so much that it looked as if he had never tasted such delicious food before. When he looked at her, it looked like he was afraid that she would not let him eat it.
Yin Hua felt very strange, as her heart tightened at that moment.
It was not because Tong Yan was anorexic, but she felt that the Tong Yan sitting in front of her was a stranger. It felt as if it was not her son at all, but another child.
That child seemed to be suffering since he was very young and his family seemed to be so poor that they couldn’t even afford instant noodles.
That made the child feel that instant noodles were luxurious, so he deeply cherished it with each mouth full.
However, when she looked at his appearance, it was her child, Tong Yan, without any doubt. Was there something wrong with him?
Was it because he didn’t have anyone to keep him company?
When she heard Xu Xinduo’s experience, Yin Hua’s face turned gloomy, remembering the past.
After a moment, Yin Hua looked at Tong Yan again. He was sitting not far away from her with a mobile phone in his hand. He seemed to be chatting with someone, typing quickly.
Yin Hua asked him, “Have you been practicing piano recently?”
Tong Yan replied vaguely: “Oh… I have been practicing.”
“Your exams should be coming up soon. How are your studies going?”
“I’ve only been practicing on the piano. I wasn’t focusing on my studies at all. So it’s up to fate.”
Yin Hua was already accustomed to this kind of attitude from her son, but wanted to say a few more words. However, she lowered his head and saw a message from her housekeeper: Madam Mu hopes to bring her daughter Mu Qingyao to see you. They said that it is not convenient to bring Xu Xinduo.
Yin Hua looked at the message, and after a “tsk”, she replied with a voice message: “Those b̲a̲s̲t̲a̲r̲d̲s̲ are not worthy to step into my house. Refuse them.”
Housekeeper replied: OK, I will reply politely.
The politeness was just to maintain Yin Hua’s reputation.
