Chapter 493: Past in Country T (26)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Li You thought that she had been hiding it well. But it was only at this moment that she realized that all her caution had been seen by them. They knew everything. They were just cooperating with her not to expose it.

If she hadn’t had the intention to save her mother in advance just now, her father probably wouldn’t have laid his cards on the table with her so quickly.

Li Huaisheng was worried that Li You would make an irreparable decision. His tone was not very good. “If you don’t listen and insist on being stubborn, don’t blame me for not recognizing you as my daughter.”

Li You bit her lower lip in grievance. “But I’m afraid I won’t make it in time.” “There’s still time,” Li Huaisheng said firmly.

Li You looked at Father Li in a daze and could not help but sob. “But… but



Li Huaishengs tone was as firm as before. “If I say there’s time, there’s definitely time! ”

After the emergency treatment, MO Zhu was out of danger.

Li Huaisheng stayed close to her in the ward. Madam Di Xin had also gone in twice, but only Li You did not go in once. She sat quietly in the waiting chair outside.

Madam Di Xin did not disturb Li You the first time she came out. When she came out the second time, she saw that she was still sitting there. She walked towards her lightly.

Li You had been immersed in her own world and did not even know when Madam Di Xin had sat down beside her. Sensing the strength on her arm, she looked sideways and her eyelashes fluttered. “Madam Di Xin.”

Madam Di Xin asked her, “What do you want to do next?”

Li You’s lips parted. “I think…”

Before Li You could finish speaking, Madam Di Xin reminded her, “You have to think carefully.”

Li You lowered her eyes. “Mom’s condition is getting worse and worse. I can’t convince myself to wait anymore. Besides, Mom can’t wait anymore. I’m afraid it’s too late…

“It’s fine, as long as you think it through,” Madam Di Xin comforted.

Li You turned around and reached out to hug Madam Di Xin. “I still can’t make a decision. No matter what I do, it’s wrong. I thought for a long time but couldn’t think of the best solution. I don’t know what to do…

She had said enough comforting words, and she had said more than ten persuasive words. Therefore, Madam Di Xin chose to remain silent this time. She did not continue to comfort her and only stayed by Li You’s side, observing her emotions at all times.

At night, Father Li sent Li You home. The father and daughter, who had always talked about everything, were both silent today. Halfway through the drive, the quiet atmosphere was broken by Father Li. He asked Li You, “Are you still angry about what I said this morning?”

Li You retracted her gaze from the car window and looked at the windshield in front of her. “I’ve already forgotten what Dad said this morning.”

Li Huai smiled angrily. “Your stubborn temper is like mine.”

Li You glanced sideways at Father Li. “Is it a good or a bad thing to be like you?”

Li Huaisheng shook his head. “Not good.” After a slight pause, he added, “Not bad either.’

Li You’s lips curved, but it was a very faint smile. “Dad, I’ve grown up. I want to make my own decisions.”

The little smile on Li Huaishengs face disappeared. He found a spot and parked by the side of the road. He turned off the engine and turned to look at Li You. “Then tell me, what decision do you want to make? Abort my biological grandson?”

Li You shook her head. “No.”

Li Huaisheng looked a little better. “It better not be.”

Li You said seriously, “l hope you can help me hide my pregnancy from Pei Jingzhou.”

Li Huaisheng was not surprised to hear that. He only asked, “Why did you want to hide it from him? He has a right to know.”

“Of course he has the right…” Li You lowered her eyes. “l will give birth to two babies in peace, but before something unknown happens, no one knows what the final outcome will be. Pei Jingzhou is already worried about my current condition. If he finds out that I’m pregnant, he will blame himself even more than me.”

She didn’t want to see him in pain.

Everything had the best outcome. She could give her mother a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible, but her unexpected pregnancy happened at this important juncture. If Pei Jingzhou found out, she did not dare to imagine what he would do.

This was also the main reason why she had chosen to hide it from Pei Jingzhou from the beginning.

Li Huaisheng understood his daughter’s thoughts and reminded her, “You’re right, but you can hide it for a while, but not forever.”

“l know. I know everything.” Li You raised her eyes and turned to look at Father Li. “But I’ve already thought it through. If he finds out in the future, say that I wanted to use umbilical cord blood to save Mom and secretly get pregnant without him knowing.”

In this way, it would become her right or wrong.

Compared to Pei Jingzhou’s guilt and self-blame for the rest of his life, she was willing to bear all of this.

Li Huaisheng did not think this was a good idea, but there did not seem to be a better solution at the moment. He could only compromise.

At night, Li You held her cell phone and hesitated for a long time. Finally, she mustered her courage and called Pei Jingzhou, who was far away in the capital.

Pei Jingzhou would come over tonight, but he had yet to get on the plane. He had just finished a meeting at the company and was about to go home to change his clothes and go to the airport. On the way home, he received a call from Li You.

Pressing the phone to her ear, she closed her eyes and said gently, “The ten o’clock flight. Don’t wait for me tonight. Go to bed early.”

More than once, Li You felt that just hearing Pei Jingzhou’s voice made her feel at ease. However, when she thought of what she was about to say, she took a deep breath and maintained a calm tone. “Pei Jingzhou.”

Pei Jingzhou guessed that she had something to say and asked, “What do you want to say?”

Li You pursed her lips and said softly, “It’s very important.”

Pei Jingzhou opened his eyes and tightened his grip on the cell phone. “Tell me.”

Li You did not beat around the bush and said directly, “Mom’s condition is not good. Dad can’t let go of all his work at the embassy. I plan to delay my graduation. For the next few months, I’ll accompany Mom for chemotherapy in peace.”

She paused for a moment and continued softly, “I’ll accompany Mom to a new address, so you don’t have to come to Country T for the next few months.” Pei Jingzhou remained silent.

Li You waited nervously for Pei Jingzhou’s response. After waiting for a long time, Pei Jingzhou did not speak. Her nervousness turned to panic. “… Pei Jingzhou?”

Pei Jingzhou replied, “Mm.”

She braced herself. “Cancel your flight for tonight.”

There was silence on the other end of the line again. Li You knew that this arrangement was not appropriate, but this was the only way. She called out again, but this time Pei Jingzhou did not respond, so she continued to call his name. Once, twice, three times…

This was probably the only time in so long that she had called Pei Jingzhou many times since they met. He had clearly heard her, but he did not respond.

As she shouted, tears began to creep into her voice. “…I’m sorry..”
