The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 223
Edited By Adrian
Shao Qinghe was in the VIP ward and Xu Xinduo walked towards the ward carrying the biscuits. She heard someone quarrelling when passing by the restroom.
The man snarled, “Stop using these cheap tricks. Look at your ghostly appearance. I even begin to feel scared when I see you. How can I continue to get along with you?”
The woman retorted, “Is this the reason for having an extramarital affair? It’s obviously your fault!”
Xu Xinduo casually glanced in the direction of the quarrel and saw that it was an old couple. They were both over fifty years old.
She didn’t care and continued to look at the ward numbers. However, she was suddenly caught by the wrist and dragged to one side.
Xu Xinduo was startled. When she raised her head to look, she found Shao Qinghe with his trademark gentle smile. He always seemed to have this gentle appearance.
It was just that two of them were a little too close, which made her very annoyed. She wanted to retreat, but Shao Qinghe didn’t let go of her. His hand was surprisingly powerful. It seemed that he didn’t want to disturb the quarrel between the two people outside.
At this time, the quarrelling man said: “You asked Qinghe to cooperate with you in pretending to be sick. Have you ever thought about his feelings all these years? A good boy has become a well-known sick boy?”
“What’s wrong with it? People will sympathize with him a little bit more and take care of him.”
Xu Xinduo looked at Shao Qinghe and felt that the people who were quarrelling had something to do with Shao Qinghe.
Shao Qinghe said in a low voice, “Follow me this way.”
After Shao Qinghe finished speaking, he took Xu Xinduo’s arm and led her to a ward, walking like they were making a grand escape.
After they were far away from the old couple, Xu Xinduo finally asked while escaping: “The two of them just now were your grandparents?”
“They are my parents.”
Such a big age gap…
Shao Qinghe explained: “I was born when they lost their only child.”
(T/L: China has a one-child policy.)
Xu Xinduo couldn’t carelessly comment on these kinds of matters so she directly went to the topic: “I’m here to give you biscuits.”
With that, she handed over the biscuits to Shao Qinghe.
“You are going to leave just like that? This is not in line with my hospitality.” Shao Qinghe swiped his card and entered his room. After entering, he poured a glass of water for Xu Xinduo and handed it to her.
After thinking about it, Xu Xinduo sat on the sofa in the room and asked him: “I heard the content of the quarrel. Are you fine with me knowing about it?”
Shao Qinghe didn’t care: “It doesn’t matter. I know that you will not tell anyone.”
“Do you trust me?”
“I just trust that you have no one to gossip. Hahaha…”
“I can tell Lou Xu. If I tell her, the whole world will know in just a few minutes.”
“Then tell her.”
Xu Xinduo took a look at Shao Qinghe and found it boring. She took a sip of the water.
Shao Qinghe was still wearing a hospital gown. Coupled with his sickly white skin, he really looked like a patient.
Shao Qinghe sat on the hospital bed and looked at her with a smile. After eating one of the biscuits, he nodded and said, “The biscuits made by sister Duoduo are really delicious.”
Xu Xinduo didn’t care about the compliment. She was still a little curious: “So… have you been pretending to be sick all the time?”
“Well, my mother came up with this method in order to save her marriage with her cheating husband.”
“But don’t you keep taking pills?”
“They are whitening pills.”
Xu Xinduo was taken aback and couldn’t help asking: “Is this whitening pill actually effective?
Shao Qinghe’s skin was really fair… abnormally fair.
“Actually, it’s fake. This kind of medicine will affect your blood flow, making your skin look white because of lack of blood. I don’t recommend you to eat it. It affects the heart and increases the burden on it.”
