"You love Juexi so much, so I thought maybe you could change him. That was why I asked you to marry him," Wen Jie said apologetically. "But, Wei-Wei, no matter what, the child is innocent. Can you please keep the child?"
Ye Yuwei listened to her mother-in-law's request and squeezed the cell phone tightly in her hand.
"I know that Juexi had hurt you a lot all these years. All the men in the Gu family are the same. I was the same as you, but I hope that Juexi can be different from his father and his grandfather, so…" Wen Jie said helplessly. She took a deep breath and continued her sentence, "I feel sorry for you. If you want to divorce Juexi, I will not stop you, but please can you please just keep the child?"
Ye Yuwei lowered her head and tears started falling on the back of her hands.
"Juexi never got to spend any time together with his father when he was young. It was my fault that I did not managed to help him keep his father by his side."
"Mom…" Ye Yuwei whispered.
"Please listen to me first," Wen Jie interrupted Ye Yuwei before she could finish speaking. "When Juexi was ten years old, he left the country together with his uncle. I did not have the chance to fulfill my responsibility as his mother. Therefore when I saw you, I had personally hope that you could change him, but I forgot how much damage being ignored could bring to a woman."
"Mom, I have never blamed you," Ye Yuwei whispered. "You gave me a chance to get close to him. A chance I would never have had, and could only dream of if you never helped me. It is my own fault. I do not have the ability to change him. Maybe I am not the right person for him."
The person on the other end of the line sighed slightly.
"Mom, maybe I am not as courageous as you, that's why…"
"It is I who do not have the courage to face reality," Wen Jie interrupted Ye Yuwei's words. She helplessly said, "Wei-Wei, the child is innocent."
Ye Yuwei gently stroked her lower abdomen. There was no obvious bulge yet, but there was indeed a small life that was slowly growing inside of her.
"Mom, I promise I will keep the child. You have to take care of your own health and wait to carry your grandson in the future," Ye Yuwei put her emotions aside and calmly comforted her mother-in-law.
The two exchanged a few more words before they hung up. Ye Yuwei put the cell phone aside. She was slightly confused about the current situation.
The only thing she was firm about, was her determination to leave.
When Gu Juexi received the phone call from his mother, he had already left the office and was on the way to the hospital.
"I have spoken to Wei-Wei. She will keep the child," Wen Jie said.
Gu Juexi paused for a moment. 'This is good news, but what about the other news?'
Gu Juexi could not bring himself to ask the question.
So he leaned back against the back of the chair and asked, "Mom, how are you feeling? Are you getting better?"
"Fine," Wen Jie said as she sat by the window in the villa, looking out at the garden. "I am fine."
Gu Juexi hated his father but he had never said it. He had even founded Gu Enterprise all by himself, not accepting any help from his father at all.
"Mom, why didn't you leave Dad?" Gu Juexi rarely asked such emotional questions.
PA Wen was surprised at the CEO's sudden question too. He did not understand why the CEO had suddenly raised this question.
