“Uncle Ming, why are you here?” Su Yue asked as she surveyed her surroundings. “Did you send me to the hospital?”
Ming Ansheng lifted an eyebrow. “If not?”
He threw the tissue into the trash can and glanced at Su Yue. “Does your chest still hurt?”
Su Yue touched her chest where her tattoo was. She honestly answered, “Yes.”
“You didn’t heed my instructions not to touch water, right?” Ming Ansheng sounded certain.
She definitely touched water. The weather was hot in the summer and it could easily cause infections.
Su Yue quietly bit her lips and that gave away her answer. Ming Ansheng sighed. “If I knew that this would happen, I would have never brought you to get a tattoo. This tattoo almost made you die of a high fever.”
“Got it, stop nagging,” said Su Yue.
Ming Ansheng decided to stop lecturing her. “Hungry?” he asked. “What do you want to eat?”
“Chicken wings,” immediately answered Su Yue.
Ming Ansheng frowned and sternly said, “The doctor said that you can’t eat oily and fried stuff.”
He decided to order porridge and buns for her instead. He even added a dessert for her.
Su Yue washed up and began eating. She looked much better and sounded more energetic.
“Don’t you need to work today?” she asked between spoonfuls of porridge.
Ming Ansheng grinned. “A fool is running a high fever. I can’t let her brain be fried, can I?”
Su Yue stuck her tongue out at him and rolled her eyes to express how unhappy she was.
She continued to shove food into her mouth.
Seeing how carefree and contented she looked, Ming Ansheng entered into deep thought.
After a while, he sighed quietly to himself before speaking. “You should tell your third sister-in-law about your tattoo. Perhaps she wouldn’t tell you off.”
He realized that if the first step was a mistake, it will lead to more mistakes.
Just like how he should have told Wen Xuxu that he was bringing Su Yue to get a tattoo.
His brain was most likely malfunctioning at that time and that’s why he had spun a lie together with the young lass.
If he didn’t tell Wen Xuxu the truth, she would definitely blame him once she knew about it. But right now, he had no idea how to break the news to her.
In a nutshell, a person shouldn’t lie. Once a person lies, they would constantly feel guilty about it.
“No!” Su Yue refused and continued. “We can’t tell her now. Wait for me to recover fully.”
She had kept her tattoo a secret, and now she is running a high fever. Her third sister-in-law will certainly be mad at her and worried as well.
Su Yue disagreed to tell Wen Xuxu and it made Ming Ansheng secretly heave a sigh of relief. When was he ever so… secretive about something?
Unconsciously, his fists were clenched tightly. He glanced at Su Yue. “So what do you intend to do?”
“What do you mean?” Su Yue raised her head, looking puzzled. She was still chewing the food in her mouth.
She looked confused.
‘This girl was simply too innocent and ignorant.’ Ming Ansheng thought to himself and shook his head. “It’s alright. Finish your food and take a rest. I need to head back to work. Be good and stay here by yourself.”
Su Yue obediently nodded. “Okay.”
During the holidays, the airport was crowded the entire day.
When Xuxu and Yan Rusheng rushed to the airport, Zhou Shuang and her mother were already getting their boarding passes.
