In the evening, Fu Hengyi came to Shen family house to pick up Shen Qinglan. On the way, Shen Qinglan said, “Fu Hengyi, I don’t want to go back to the military area with you for the time being. I want to spend more time with my mother.”
Fu Hengyi smiled gently, “Okay, but you have to remember to take the Chinese medicine. If you don’t have time to cook the medicine, give it to Aunt Zhao or Sister Song.”
Shen Qinglan nodded, “Yes, I know.”
Fu Hengyi had taken a temporary leave, so he rushed back to the military area early the next morning, while Shen Qinglan went to the hospital after having breakfast and brought breakfast to Shen Qian.
“Dad, please have some breakfast first.” Shen Qinglan put down the breakfast and said.
Shen Qian didn’t sleep all night. After all, he was older and couldn’t compare to young people. His face was very haggard. Moreover, he didn’t eat much last night. He was hungry, so he didn’t refuse.
“Mom…she still hasn’t woken up?” Shen Qinglan glanced at Chu Yunrong.
Shen Qian finished his breakfast in a few bites, “Not yet. They can’t say when she’ll wake up.”
“Dad, you go and have a rest first. I’m here.”
“Yeah.” Shen Qian didn’t refuse. Fortunately, this was a high-end ward. There was also a sofa to lie down on, so he climbed on it, closed his eyes and fell asleep.
Shen Qinglan walked to the hospital bed, looked at the person on the hospital bed, sat down, and held her hand, “I never blamed you or resented you for what happened in the past. When I was young, I was just playful. It’s not your fault that I got separated from you. Moreover, although I grew up in an orphanage these years, the director was very kind to me. I lived a very happy life, and neither did the children in the orphanage bully me. I am now a very famous painter, and I have a husband who treats me very well. I’m very happy now. Let the past pass.”
Shen Qinglan didn’t know if Chu Yunrong could hear her. With these words, she just lay near Chu Yunrong’s ear and gently said what she wanted to say. Eden said that a situation like Chu Yunrong’s was a state of self-paralysis, as long as she was willing to accept the stimulation from the outside world, she could wake up. As for her mental state after waking up, it was another matter.
“I had a high fever when I was a child. After I recovered, I forgot many things. I only remembered that I had a father, mother, grandparents, and an older brother, but I couldn’t remember what you looked like, so I often I wonder, what will my mother look like? Will she look similar to me? Will she be gentle or stern…”
Shen Qian didn’t know when he woke up, but he didn’t get up. He closed his eyes. Lying on the sofa, listening to Shen Qinglan’s whispers.
“People say that motherhood makes you strong. You are my mother, and you can face the past bravely. Why do you choose to escape? Do you want to lie in bed for the rest of your life and never look at me again? They all say that you feel sorry for me in your heart and you feel deeply guilty. You love me. Shouldn’t you wake up and make it up to me? The rest of our lives is so long and we still have so much time. Are you sure you want to waste it here?”
Her voice penetrated into Chu Yunrong’s ears, her eyelids trembled, and a tear fell from the corner of her eye.
Shen Qinglan lowered her head and didn’t notice, and continued to speak softly, “I have never experienced the feeling of having a mother since I was five years old. I don’t want such regret to accompany me throughout my life, so we will all give each other a chance. Okay?”
“Okay.” A hoarse voice sounded in the quiet ward. Shen Qinglan was shocked, raised her head, and met Chu Yunrong’s tearful eyes.
“Do I still have a chance?” Chu Yunrong asked cautiously, her voice was hoarse because she hadn’t spoken for many days.
Shen Qinglan nodded and said affirmatively, “Yes, my child will need her grandmother to take care of her in the future.”
Chu Yunrong suddenly hugged Shen Qinglan and cried loudly, “Qinglan, mother was wrong, mother was really wrong.”
The heart-breaking cry was heard, and the tears fell on Shen Qinglan’s neck. With a fiery temperature, she returned her favour gently, just like when she was a child, when she cried endlessly, Chu Yunrong held her and comforted her tenderly.
“It’s okay, everything is over, we can start again.”
Shen Qian sat up. When Chu Yunrong spoke, he opened his eyes and looked at his crying wife and his daughter who was comforting his wife. His old eyes contained warmth and a smile.
“Okay, isn’t it embarrassing to cry like this in front of your daughter?” Shen Qian teased his wife, with a smile in his voice.
Chu Yunrong was also a little embarrassed. The last time she lost her composure was more than ten years ago when Shen Qinglan disappeared.
“You just woke up, it’s better to take a rest now. I’ll go find the doctor.” Shen Qinglan stood up and walked out.
Chu Yunrong stared blankly at Shen Qinglan’s back. Shen Qian held his wife’s hand, “It’s okay, our daughter has said that we should give each other a chance. We can slowly make up for her in the remaining time. The most important thing now is that you have to take good care of your own illness first.”
“Everyone in the family knows, right?” Chu Yunrong looked at Shen Qian and asked. Shen Qian paused and nodded, “Junyu saw you in the hospital.”
Chu Yunrong lowered her head, “A Qian, did we do something wrong back then?”
“Yes.” Shen Qian said firmly, “So we have to correct it now. The rest of our lives is long, and we still have a chance.”
Seemingly having made up her mind, Chu Yunrong looked at Shen Qian and said seriously, “I want to get better soon. Just now Qinglan said that I have to help her take care of her children in the future.”
“Think of it this way. By the way, you must cooperate with the doctor’s treatment in the future and stop thinking about those messy things, you know?”
“Yes, I know.”
The doctor came in to check. In fact, there was nothing wrong with Chu Yunrong’s body. The problems were all psychological. After confirming that there were no problems, Chu Yunrong was discharged from the hospital.
Mr. Shen was very happy to see Chu Yunrong back, but Chu Yunrong, on the other hand, felt a little uneasy facing Mr. Shen, “Dad.”
“Yunrong, father’s attitude was wrong that day. Please bear with me.” Mr. Shen apologized first, he didn’t think there was anything wrong with elders apologizing to younger ones at all.
“Dad, please don’t say that. It’s me who did the wrong thing.”
“Grandpa, Mom, how long do you want to apologize to each other?” Shen Junyu parked the car and came in. It was funny to see his grandfather and mother apologizing to each other.
“Junyu is right. We are all a family. We have nothing to apologize for. What happened in the past is over. Just don’t make the same mistake again in the future.”
Chu Yunrong had been discharged from the hospital, but her illness was not temporary. It would be fine for a while, so Chu Yunrong drove Shen Qian back to the army after discussing it with him. He had given up too much for her, and she couldn’t always hold him back.
When Chu Yunrong went back for a follow-up visit for the first time after being discharged from the hospital, Shen Qinglan accompanied her. Shen Qinglan’s eyes flashed slightly when she saw the familiar hospital in front of her, so it must have been Chu Yunrong who she saw last time.
Doctor Zhou looked at the young woman who came with Chu Yunrong and naturally knew that this was her daughter, “Miss Shen. I am your mother’s psychiatrist. My surname is Zhou.”
“Doctor Zhou, please take care of my mother’s illness.”
Dr. Zhou asked Shen Qinglan to wait outside, and she took Chu Yunrong inside. This time, Chu Yunrong was more cooperative than ever before.
After the treatment, Chu Yunrong opened her eyes, and Dr. Zhou asked gently, “How do you feel this time?”
“It’s much better than before. I feel like my heart didn’t hurt so much.” Chu Yunrong had a faint smile on her face.
Doctor Zhou smiled slightly and said, “You must have talked it out with your daughter, right?”
In the past, either Shen Qian came with her or Chu Yunrong came by herself. This time it was Shen Qinglan, so Dr. Zhou knew that she should have talked it out.
“Hmm.” Chu Yunrong smiled and nodded. She thought of something and looked at Dr. Zhou with some worry, “Doctor Zhou, can my disease be cured?”
“Your depression is serious, but schizophrenia is mild. As long as you maintain a happy mood, take medicine, and cooperate with treatment, you can recover.”
Chu Yunrong felt relieved after hearing this. Before leaving, Dr. Zhou called Shen Qinglan aside alone and said a few words, “The cause of your mother’s illness is actually you. As long as you cooperate well, your mother’s illness can be cured.”
“How do I need to cooperate? ” Dr. Zhou explained some things to Shen Qinglan in detail, and finally said, “You should pay more attention to her on weekdays, but don’t treat her as a patient.”
“Okay, I understand. Thank you, Dr. Zhou.”
Watching the mother and daughter leave, Dr. Zhou smiled.
“Mom, it’s still early. Let’s go shopping. I haven’t bought clothes for a long time and I want to buy some clothes.”
Halfway through the journey, Shen Qinglan spoke. Just now, Dr. Zhou told her that her mother regretted not being able to go shopping with her and buying her all kinds of clothes.
Chu Yunrong smiled softly after hearing this, “Okay, there is a big shopping mall just in front of us. Let’s go there. There are several stores there with very good clothes. You might like them after seeing them.”
When they arrived at the place, Chu Yunrong took Shen Qinglan on a shopping spree, letting Shen Qinglan see what a real shopaholic was. The time at the end of the year was nothing compared to this time.
Looking at the mountains of bags at her feet, Shen Qinglan was helpless. These clothes were enough for her to wear for a year even if she changed them every day. Chu Yunrong was very embarrassed. How could she have known that she would buy so many clothes? There were so many, no wonder one of the cards was maxed out.
“It’s okay, this mall can deliver to your door, we will just leave the address to them.”
After buying everything, they naturally couldn’t take them back and left their address for them to be delivered. Shen Qinglan took Chu Yunrong to eat, near Shen Junyu’s company, so she simply asked Shen Junyu to come eat with them. Shen Junyu knew that his sister and mother were there. If they were nearby, he had to come.
“Mr. Shen, Mr. Wen from Xinhe International has invited you to lunch at noon.” Yu Bin reminded Shen Junyu responsibly.
Shen Junyu paused, he had really forgotten, “Push him for me. I have other arrangements at noon. After taking two steps, he said, “Forget it, I’ll call and explain myself.”
“What other arrangements do you have that you can let me go?” Wen Xiyao’s voice came from the direction of the elevator door. Shen Junyu looked and in a blink of an eye, Wen Xiyao was in front of him, “Mr. Shen, it’s not okay to break an appointment. This is not what a gentleman would do.”
Wen Xiyao just remembered that there was an important document that had not been given to Shen Junyu, so she came over in person as then they could have lunch together. Who knew that Shen Junyu would cancel the appointment at the last minute.
