Strongest Abandoned Son - Chapter 6
’’Dad, why did you come back?’’ Su Jingwen returned to the private hospital and the first thing she saw was her father. Ever since her mother became a vegetable, her father invested almost all of his time into his career. Even her mother's company was managed by Su Jingwen. However, due to her mother's illness, the company was in a mess.
But even so, her father didn't even ask about it and also rarely came to the private hospital to see her mother. However, Su Jingwen didn't know why her father suddenly came to the hospital today.
’’Hmph, if I don't come back, I don't know how much trouble you are going to cause. Buying all those random things and this time, you even believed a charm would cure your mother. Is your next move to invite a Tiao Da Shen?’’ Su Jianzhong's face was very bleak, obviously, he was very unhappy with his daughter.
TL note: Tiao Da Shen: someone who jumps around and invites spirits to enter his/her body to perform magic.
Hearing this, Su Jingwen knew that Wang Peng dobbed on her. She felt more despicable towards this donkey shit that only looked good on the outside. However, she was also very unhappy with her father and therefore remained silent and didn't want to reply.
’’What, you can't talk anymore, immediately throw away all those random things you have bought...’’ Su Jianzheng said with a tough voice.
’’Dad, after mum got sick, what have you done? You only came to visit her once when she became unconscious. Where have you been all these years? Ask yourself, have you treated mum right? What I have done, I'm very clear about that in my heart and I don't need you to control me. Mum never criticised you for the women you have outside but what about yourself? Have you thought for mum the slightest bit?’’ After staying silent for a little while, Su Jingwen suddenly burst out.
’’You.....’’ Su Jianzhong's face went red and white after hearing her words. He raised his hand and was about to give his daughter a slap but seeing his daughter's stern yet fatigued face, he slowly put his hands down.
He knew in his heart that he really didn't have the right to say anything about his daughter. He had indeed wronged his wife and daughter. His wife's company was all managed by his daughter and he didn't help the least bit.
’’Okay, I know I can't control you. I hope this is the last time you are superstitious, don't do this again. You have received high order education, can't you understand this? Don't start conflict with Wang Peng over a superstitious fraud on the streets. Sometimes, the faithful words grate upon the year.’’ Su Jianzhong said helplessly.
Su Jingwen sneered in her heart. Of course she knew why her father wanted her to get close with Wang Peng. If her father wanted to progress in his career, then he needed the help of Wang Peng's father. Although her father was already a mayor, her father was not on the list for heavy investment in the Su family. Without the help of the Su family, Su Jianzhong would perhaps stay in that position for the rest of his life if he didn't find his own connections.
In fact, Su Jianzhong did think like this. The Wang family's power was no less than the Su family. On top of that, the Su family wasn't one of those super families in the capital, those who received heavy investment would only be those few with great potential. He really did reach the peak of his career being a mayor. Also, he was almost 50 years old. If he didn't receive external help, perhaps he would gradually fade out of the Su family's line of sight. If he could borrow the Wang family's power and take one step higher, then perhaps the elder of the family would re-evaluate his potential.
Although she knew her father's plans, Su Jingwen didn't say that. Although Wang Peng was handsome, in Su Jingwen's eyes, he was only good looking but useless.
Seeing her turn to enter her mum's room, Su Jianzhong opened his mouth and wanted to say something but he withheld it. He knew that his plans were not beneficial for his daughter. He thought about it and also followed her but he only stood at the doorway. He didn't have the courage to face his wife who had been unconscious for three years.
On the bed laid a beautiful woman that appeared to be in her 30's. She was 30% similar to Su Jingwen but her eyes were tightly closed and her eyebrows seem to be frowned.
Seeing Su Jingwen enter, the nurse who had been sitting at the head of the bed hurried to stand up and greet Su Jingwen before leaving.
Looking at her still unconscious mother, Su Jingwen's eyes grew red. It's been a few years already. Although she still hadn't given up, she had no one to cry to and tell about her pains. She could only cry at her mother's bedside in the depth of the night.
Taking out the spirit cleansing charms that was worth 20,000, Su Jingwen's spirit drifted. Although she knew that this charm was probably fake, she still couldn't suppress the excitement in her heart. It was as though her mum would really wake up after through this charm down.
Seeing his self cheating daughter, Su Jianzhong shook his head but didn't continue to talk. He wanted to wait after his daughter used this charm and have a good conversation with her.
Su Jingwen suddenly stood up and took two steps back. She raised her hand and the spirit cleansing charm was thrown towards the woman that laid on the bed. At the same time, she gently yelled the word ’’lin.’’
Seeing his superstitious daughter, Su Jianzhong didn't have the slightest thought of laughing. There was only unrest and guilt in his heart. For her mother, his daughter who was well educated started believing these things.
But Su Jianzhong immediately thought there were problems with his eyes. The yellow charm that his daughter threw out actually turned into numerous white rays after his daughter said lin. These white rays entered his wife's body as some ashes rained down around her.
If it wasn't that the whole room suddenly cooled down and that his eyes were feeling pain from the luminous rays, he almost thought he was hallucinating. What the heck was this?
Su Jingwen was also shocked. She thought that after throwing the charm out and saying the word, it would continue to fall on her mother's blanket and then she would prepare to wake up her mother.
But, things greatly exceeded her expectations. The charm she threw out turned into numerous cool white rays and they all immersed into her mother's body. Meanwhile, the charm she threw out all disappeared. In the blink of an eye, all she saw were some tiny specks of dust flying around.
Su Jingwen felt goose bumps on her head. She knew that a lot of those frauds used chemistry occurrences to cheat people. However, she is a well educated science student. There was no way she could explain this phenomenon with any chemistry reaction. Could it be that this was really a charm?
Thinking that this charm might really be working, Su Jingwen's hands started to shake. If what that master who sold charms said was really true, then her mum should be about to wake up.
Thinking about this, Su Jingwen could no longer hold the excitement in her heart and rushed beside her mum.
