“No, but the sentences will run concurrently. Even if she doesn’t spend the second half of her lifetime locked up behind bars, she will serve at least 20 years in jail,” Yu Yuehan answered Matriarch Yu.
Hearing that Wen Yadai would not be sentenced to death, Matriarch Yu heaved a sigh of relief.
“As long as she doesn’t die, it doesn’t matter how long the sentence is…” Then, before she finished speaking, she suddenly bit her tongue when she thought about Nian Xiaomu, who was sitting beside her.
Matriarch Yu took Nian Xiaomu’s hand in her own and started to comfort her.
“Actually, Yu Yuehan owes you a lot. You are such a fine girl, but marrying into the Yu Family will make you a stepmother to Xiao Liuliu. You also had to put up with so much harassment all this time. Grandma knows it has been hard on you!”
“Xiao Mumu, Grandma knows that you are good child. Although Xiao Liuliu isn’t your biological daughter, you have always treated her as your own. Don’t worry because there won’t be a next time! Xiao Liuliu has only one mother and that’s you. Even if her biological mother appears in the future, I will not allow her to step into our Yu Family! The only granddaughter-in-law that I want is you!”
The more Matriarch Yu spoke, the more she felt aggrieved for Nian Xiaomu and wanted to be good to her.
Matriarch Yu continued to admonish Xiao Liuliu’s mother, and it sounded like she would chase Xiao Liuliu’s mother out with a broom if she appeared in front of them now!
As she listened to Matriarch Yu’s bashing, Nian Xiaomu froze with discomfort and looked toward Yu Yuehan to plead with him for help.
She wanted him to stop Grandma and help her tell Grandma that she was Xiao Liuliu’s biological mother…
However, Yu Yuehan coolly threw a look back at her that said: You deal with the problem that you have caused.
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
“Xiao Mumu, what’s wrong? Why do you look so pale? Grandma knows that you feel upset. Say it out and don’t bottle it up!”
Seeing that beads of perspiration had formed on Nian Xiaomu’s forehead, Matriarch Yu felt her heart ache for Nian Xiaomu as she wiped off the perspiration.
Nian Xiaomu quickly grabbed her hand and said, “Well, Grandma, actually Xiao Liuliu’s mother…”
“I know, I know. No matter how magnanimous a woman may be, she will surely feel bothered by the fact that the man she loves had a child with another woman. Grandma has been through it. I can understand how you feel!”
“No, Grandma. Listen to me…”
“You should listen to me. At Grandma’s age, I’ve been through all sorts of storms and turbulence in life. When two people decide to be together, it’s impossible not to have any conflicts at all. If you find someone who dotes and loves you wholeheartedly, you should cherish that person.”
Matriarch Yu was overcome with emotions as she spoke.
“If only you had appeared earlier. Perhaps Xiao Liuliu would have been your daughter with Yuehan. Oh, this is fate!”
Nian Xiaomu covered her face with her hands upon hearing Matriarch Yu’s words.
She had appeared early enough.
In fact, she had appeared too early, and now, it was difficult to explain that she was Xiao Liuliu’s mother…
Nian Xiaomu mustered her courage as she lifted up her head and said earnestly to Matriarch Yu, “Grandma, actually I’m Xiao Liuliu’s biological mother!”
Startled, Matriarch Yu took a serious look at Nian Xiaomu, then turned around to look at Yu Yuehan.
Yu Yuehan wanted to speak up, but Matriarch Yu suddenly reached out to hug Nian Xiaomu and patted her head as she said, “My silly Mumu. Grandma knows that you’re unhappy, but you cannot fool yourself this way!”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
Yu Yuehan: “…!!”
