It was the exact situation when she lost her daughter many years ago. She was obviously the victim at that time, but everyone had asked her to calm down and not to make a big issue out of the matter.
How could she not care&x2026;
That was the reason why Wen Tong stared at Gao Mengjin with those cold and vacant eyes as she had a distant and desperate expression on her face. But this time&x2026;
Gao Mengjin pushed his mother aside before he walked over to Wen Tong&x2019;s side to protect and defend her.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t you think that you owe us this slap?&x201D;
Gao Mengjin was in disbelief as she stared at her son. She felt incredulous. &x201C;You&x2026;do you even know what you are saying right now?&x201D;
&x201C;If it was not because of you, my daughter would be in elementary school with pigtails right now,&x201D; Gao Mengjin sneered as he glared at his mother coldly with resentment in his eyes.
&x201C;That is because I wanted you to have a son!&x201D;
&x201C;I do not need to have a son. I had everything that I needed initially. I had a wife and a daughter. However, because of your viciousness, I have been left with nothing for the past few years. I lost everything I loved in the blink of an eye. Mom, do you know that my biggest regret is not stepping up and taking a stand in this matter many years ago? I should have supported Wen Tong instead of allowing her to suffer and be wronged like this. I should have stood by her side many years ago. Do you know that you have ruined my home and made me lose everything I had?&x201D; Gao Mengjin yelled at his mother in a hysterical manner as he let out all these years of frustrations that he had kept pent up inside.
&x201C;I regret hurting the most important person that I love so much just because we are family. I regret allowing Ween Tong&x2019;s heart to turn so cold because of your deception.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin&x2019;s mother was shocked at her son&x2019;s sudden outburst and reaction and she started crying. &x201C;I only did what I have done for the sake of your family!&x201D;
&x201C;You did it for yourself!&x201D; Gao Mengjin refuted her words immediately. &x201C;You are also a woman, so how could you treat Wen Tong as though she is the Gao family&x2019;s birth machine and nothing more than that? She is also a human with feelings and emotions&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Because she will only have a way out if she has a son&x2026;&x201D;
Gao Mengjin shook his head and denied everything that his mother had just said. &x201C;No. I would have loved my daughter the same way. Do you know what it feels like for a biological mother to know that her daughter is dead? I suffer from insomnia every night and I have never been able to have a good night&x2019;s sleep for the past few years. I love my wife and I feel so sad and depressed whenever I think about my unborn child. I have only been a father for a short while and I lost everything because of you!&x201D;
&x201C;Gao Mengjin, how could you speak to your mother in this manner?&x201D; Gao Mengjin&x2019;s father yelled at Gao Mengjin at this time.
&x201C;Mother?&x201D; Gao Mengjin chuckled as he listened to his father&x2019;s words. &x201C;I have not regarded her as my mother for the longest time already&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Is this is the reason why you have never called me even after all these years?&x201D; Gao Mengjin&x2019;s mother asked as she cried.
&x201C;Do you think you are worthy to be my mother after everything you have done?&x201D;
&x201C;Are you serious? You would abandon your own father and mother just because of that woman?&x201D; Gao Mengjin&x2019;s father asked as he pointed his shaky, wrinkled right hand at Gao Mengjin. &x201C;Gao Mengjin, I advise you to think properly right now. If you are really thinking of abandoning your own family, then you can forget about ever inheriting the legacy of the Gao family. I will not leave you a single cent or penny.&x201D;
After listening to his father&x2019;s words, Gao Mengjin laughed as he felt a little relieved. &x201C;It&x2019;s okay. You can do as you wish because I do not want anything from both of you anyway. I have already lost everything that mattered to me, so what else can hurt me now? However, I have already bought over this mansion, so I hope that you can both leave and never appear in front of Wen Tong ever again. I hope that you will never look for me or appear in front of me either. The biggest regret in my entire life is the fact that I am your son.&x201D;
After speaking, Gao Mengjin took two steps back before he instructed the butler, &x201C;Send them off.&x201D;
&x201C;Old Master, Old Mistress, please follow me&x2026;&x201D; the butler said to the two old people.
&x201C;You will regret this!&x201D; Gao Mengjin&x2019;s father replied before he dragged his wife away from the mansion in a hurry.
The atmosphere in the living room was extremely quiet and all that was left were the disco lights flashing in the background.
No one dared to say anything but at this time, Gao Mengjin suddenly turned around and faced the crowd as he tried to hide the embarrassment that he felt. &x201C;Sorry for causing a scene.&x201D;
After that, he turned around and headed upstairs to his bedroom.
Wen Luo took this opportunity to look at the expression on Wen Tong&x2019;s face.
After that, he gestured to the other guests to leave the mansion immediately.
&x201C;Sister&x2026;that old witch finally got what she deserved today. I am so satisfied right now. Why don&x2019;t you just divorce that scumbag today? This way, we can cut off all ties and contact with them in the future.&x201D;
&x201C;Wen Luo, you are supposed to persuade and not make the situation worse.&x201D; Jiang Yuning cut Wen Luo off immediately.
&x201C;The entire Gao family is garbage! What else should we care about? Why should we give them face?&x201D;
&x201C;But Mr. Gao is also a victim. He lost his daughter and his wife at the same time. He is also hurting inside. You saw and heard everything that he said earlier. He is willing to give up everything that he has just so that he could get justice for his daughter.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Wen Tong ran upstairs and walked towards Gao Mengjin&x2019;s bedroom door.
Jiang Yuning and Wen Luo could no longer hold back their excitement and they quickly gave each other a high five.
The other guests were astonished.
So, these two people had been planning this and working together all this while?
&x201C;Sister-in-Law, you are so cool!&x201D;
&x201C;Of course!&x201D; replied Jiang Yuning.
Upstairs, Wen Tong pushed Gao Mengjin&x2019;s bedroom door open because he did not close it at all.
The tall and muscular man was sitting helplessly at the edge of his bed at this time. He looked like a child who was lost and helpless without anyone to depend on at the moment.
This was the first time that Wen Tong had ever stepped into Gao Mengjin&x2019;s bedroom after so many years. No, it was actually the bedroom that they used to share. Even though she had already moved out a long time ago, everything was still exactly the way it was before she had moved out. Even the wedding photo on the wall was still the same photograph that had been there since the first day.
On the other side of the bedside table, there was an ultrasound report of the first baby that they had both been expecting together. Wen Tong had not expected him to place this report right by his bed.
&x201C;I am sorry that you have to go through all that hurt and grievances by yourself all these years. I am sorry that my apology came so late,&x201D; Gao Mengjin said as he placed his hand on the edge of the bed frame. &x201C;I am sorry that I was not able to protect our child. I am equally as helpless and hurt as you are.&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s alright. You have already made it up to your daughter today. At least, we have finally gotten justice for our daughter,&x201D; Wen Tong replied as she tried to act completely calm and relaxed.
&x201C;But I shouldn&x2019;t have allowed this matter to drag on for so many years. You should hate me. I understand why you hate me. To tell you the truth, I had intentionally invited my parents here today so that I could settle the score with them once and for all. I did not mean to embarrass you or ruin your birthday party on purpose. I just wanted to take this opportunity to deal with this issue. I am already extremely exhausted and I believe that you are too. I do not want us to continue carrying this shackles around with us anymore. I do not want you to shut yourself out from this world because of all the hatred and pain that you feel inside. I want you to be free and to be yourself again&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I am sorry for ruining your birthday. You can go down and continue enjoying your birthday party with your friends now. Let me have some time alone.&x201D;
Wen Tong did not even have the chance to say anything at all and Gao Mengjin was already driving her out of his room.
However, just as Wen Tong was about to step out of the bedroom door, Gao Mengjin suddenly asked her, &x201C;If I told you that I still love you and need you by my side, would you stay?&x201D;
Wen Tong did not reply. She did not even turn around.
She admitted that Gao Mengjin&x2019;s actions had already completely cured the scar in her heart. However, she was still afraid because of the many things that had already happened between them.
&x201C;Sorry. I was being delusional.&x201D;
Wen Tong walked out of Gao Mengjin&x2019;s bedroom as she walked downstairs with a heavy heart.
Wen Luo observed the expression on Wen Tong&x2019;s face and he realized that things did not seem to go that well.
However, Jiang Yuning still had a smile on her face because she knew that the knot in Wen Tong&x2019;s heart had already been undone because of her willingness to go upstairs and look for Gao Mengjin on her own accord. As for the other part&x2026;
Everyone could just add fuel to the flames later&x2026;
