“I can’t say that I’m familiar with him, I have only a meager impression of the boy,” the old man said with his fingers gently tapping the table.
Gu Juexi stopped drumming his fingers and listened to the old man attentively.
“A few days ago, there was someone who came to me. He told me to answer truthfully if someone asked about Ye Shu. If I knew it was you, I would have told you everything even without him telling me to.”
Gu Juexi looked down, frowning.
“So do you know why Ye Shu left?” Gu Juexi looked up and asked. Although he had already guessed it, he still wanted to ask again, to be sure.
“I can’t remember so clearly now. I vaguely recalled that he was just accepted to a university when his mother was diagnosed with uremia. Back then, the old Yao Lao, I mean San Qi’s father…”
San Qi, that was Master Yao Lao.
“The old Yao Lao had three ‘no treatment’ rules: no treatment for the poor, no treatment for outsiders and no treatment for women. Unfortunately, Ye Shu’s mother ticked all three.”
Gu Juexi’s frown deepened.
“Her admission to the hospital cost them an arm and a leg. I remember Ye Shu would always come with his sister to work temporary jobs like delivering drinking water and other chores for us who lived on this mountain, earning around ten dollars a day. After that, someone came and said they were here to take Ye Shu and his sister away.”
Gu Juexi raised his head in surprise. “Do you still remember what they looked like. the people who took them away?”
The old man waved his hand. “It’s been decades, I have long forgotten. What I remember was that they were from a wealthy family, they came in a nice car.”
Gu Juexi gripped his palms tight into a fist. “Then do you still remember anything that was in the car?”
The old man shook his head again to indicate he didn’t remember.
However, Gu Juexi already had an answer in his mind.
The Wen family back in those days did have that kind of ability and influence. He was now certain that the people who had taken Ye Shu away were from the Wen family.
No wonder his mother was so fond of Ye Yuwei, it was not only because Ye Yuwei donated her kidney to her.
Gu Juexi snapped his fingers. The wound on his back was tingling in pain and his sweat had soaked the bandage.
Ye Yuwei and Ye Shu were so similar. The people who had taken Ye Shu away were from the Wen family. Before he and Ye Yuwei got married, his mother advised him over and over to treat Ye Yuwei well. Even on the matter of divorcing Ye Yuwei, his mother had always taken Ye Yuwei’s side.
Ye Yuwei was always number one in his mother’s heart.
Ye Yuwei walked into the room with a glass of water. She was surprised by the coldness emitting from Gu Juexi when she passed the water to the old man. “What is wrong with you?”
Gu Juexie regained his focus and calmed himself swiftly.
“Nothing. Master Yao Lao is about to be available, let’s go,” Gu Juexi said. He stood up using the table as support as he held Ye Yuwei’s hand.
Ye Yuwei nodded, said her farewells to the old man and walked out of the room alongside Gu Juexi.
When they came out of the room, Ye Yuwei could sense something was not right with Gu Juexi’s mood because his hand that was holding hers was slick with sweat.
After they left the temporary residence, Ye Yuwei took a few quick steps and pulled away from his hand. “What happened? What’s the matter? You’re worrying me.”
Gu Juexi squinted at Ye Yuwei. He didn’t want to admit his mother had anything to do with Ye Shu, because that relationship would not be what he expected.
Gu Juexi stretched his hands out to embrace Ye Yuwei and rested his chin on her shoulder. “Nothing, both the old man and your grandfather have said the same thing, there is no difference.”
