Nalan Chunbo helped Ye Yuwei sit down by her bedside.
“Aunt, Weiwei just woke up,” Nalan Chunbo looked distressed. He was afraid that his aunt would be too heartless with her words.
“Leave,” Bai Ying bit out. She clenched her fists, as if to warn him.
Nalan Chunbo let out a sigh and looked down at Ye Yuwei. He patted her lightly on the shoulder then got up and left.
The door closed behind him, and the curtain that had just been closed floated like a wave because of the sea breeze.
Ye Yuwei leaned back against her pillow. Her lower abdomen was hurting but she continued glaring at the woman sitting in front of her.
She was her biological mother, Bai Ying.
The main culprit who had caused the death of Gu Juexi’s comrades.
( Boxno vel. co m ) “What did Bai Yuyan say to you?” Bai Ying asked in a calm voice. She reached out and pulled the quilt nicely over Ye Yuwei.
“Don’t touch me,” Ye Yuwei’s voice was so soft it was almost inaudible. All that could be heard was the hoarseness in her voice.
Bai Ying was stunned for a moment. She quickly kept her hands to herself, but the expression on her face was still indifferent. “Your father never betrayed Gu Juexi or China. He had pledged his entire life to stop people from committing crimes in China. Hence, you can blame anyone, but you have no right to blame your father.”
Ye Yuwei looked at Bai Ying in disbelief.
That was not what Bai Yuyan had told her.
She did not!
Ye Yuwei held on tightly to the quilt in her hands. Why did she believe whatever Bai Yuyan told her?
Bai Ying observed Ye Yuwei’s reaction and knew she was thinking about what she had just said.
She felt pain. She felt distressed.
However, these were emotions she could not afford to have.
She clasped her hands together so tightly her fingernails pierced her soft skin. The pain made her rational.
When she looked at Ye Yuwei once again, she did not look at her with the tender heart of a mother, but with pure coldness in her eyes.
“Gu Juexi was right. You want to be arrogant but what can you do if you have no ability at all?” Bai Ying asked mockingly.
Ye Yuwei pursed her lips, nibbling at them until they started bleeding.
Her mind was filled with all the events that had happened throughout this period.
She could only get rid of Yu Sha’er because Gu Juexi had secretly helped her deal with that woman. She was only able to get rid of Bai Yuyan because her mother-in-law came to protect her.
She really was a weak woman. She was disgusted by her own weakness.
Ye Yuwei’s pain distressed Bai Ying. She started walking around the bed but resisted the urge to move towards her own daughter.
Nothing in the world hurt more than not being able to do anything when watching your own daughter crying in pain.
She felt more distressed compared to Ye Yuwei, but she could not tell her that.
If her daughter did not mature by herself, who else would be able to protect her?
She was also still on a mission to destroy the Bai family. Still waiting for Ye Shu to return.
Even if she placed her back at Gu Juexi’s side, she would not necessarily be safe.
She was born to such a family, so she had no choice but to force her to grow up and be strong.
“But since you are my daughter, I will not ignore you—”
“I don’t need it.” Ye Yuwei interrupted her. “I don’t need it. You chose to abandon me in the past. Therefore, I do not need you to take care of me. I do not need you to get involved in my life. You do not need to step in.”
Bai Ying looked at the woman who had her hands pressed on the bed because she had used up most of her strength to retaliate. Even if she was smiling, her smile was cold.
“What can you do if you do not have any ability?” Bai Ying asked sarcastically. “Besides constantly being deceived, besides dying for a man, what else can you do?”
Every word Bai Ying uttered pierced through her heart like a sword.
