&x201C;I am sorry. Today is my birthday but I did not expect things to turn out this way,&x201D; Wen Tong apologized as soon as she went downstairs. &x201C;Wen Luo wanted to get revenge for me. So, you guys had to witness all of that.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister, did you enjoy that slap just now? Did it feel good?&x201D; Wen Luo, who was sitting on the sofa asked Wen Tong as he winked at her. &x201C;Do you feel happier now?&x201D;
&x201C;I actually feel quite happy indeed,&x201D; Wen Tong replied and laughed as she looked at the palm of her hand that was still red from giving Gao Mengjin&x2019;s mother that slap across her face. &x201D; I have been suffering silently for so many years. I am really happy that I have finally gotten justice for your niece.&x201D;
&x201C;Since you are happy, then all of us should celebrate right now! Come on, let&x2019;s celebrate and drink up!&x201D; Wen Luo said as he picked up a bottle of champagne and started inviting everyone to drink together.
What was Xu Liangzhou here for?
Did he even understand the story between the two of them?
Everyone responded immediately and quickly offered Wen Tong a drink, one after another. This quickly intoxicated Wen Tong and made her drunk before she could even realize it herself.
When Jiang Yuning saw that Wen Tong&x2019;s face was already flushed red as she held a wine bottle and sat down on the carpet, Jiang Yuning got up and asked her, &x201C;Since the knot in your heart has already been untied, do you plan to divorce Gao Mengjin?&x201D;
As soon as Wen Tong heard the word &x2018;divorce&x2019;, she laughed out loud before she responded, &x201C;Divorce? Why should I divorce him? I have never once thought about divorcing him&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Do you still love him, then?&x201D;
Wen Tong started crying as soon as she heard the word &x2018;love&x2019;. &x201C;Love. Of course, I love him. But what is the point now? I cannot have any children anymore. Yuning, did you know that my body failed to recover after the forced induction of labor and I can no longer conceive or give birth to a child?&x201D;
No one would have expected Wen Tong to be suffering like this by herself.
The Gao family owed her not only a daughter, but so much more than that.
As Wen Tong spoke, she wiped the tears off her eyes before she said, &x201C;But what is the point of saying all this now?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister, no. You can definitely be cured. We have our surgeon, Xu Liangzhou, over here. He can definitely do something for you,&x201D; Wen Luo replied as he pointed a finger at Xu Liangzhou. &x201C;Don&x2019;t be discouraged.&x201D;
After listening to Wen Luo&x2019;s words, Xu Liangzhou pinched Wen Luo&x2019;s ears before he replied, &x201C;As you have just said, I am a surgeon! Not a gynaecologist.&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t care! Either way, you have to find a way to cure my sister.&x201D;
&x201C;I think that I might have a way after all,&x201D; Xu Liangzhou replied. &x201C;I know of a foreign specialist who is really good at what he does. We could contact him and give it a try. You would never know if you don&x2019;t try it.&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t want to try it anymore,&x201D; Wen Tong replied as she shook her head. &x201C;I have already lost my family. Why do I still want a child now? What am I going to do with a child?&x201D;
Not far away, Gao Mengjin&x2019;s footsteps were as heavy as steel and iron. This was because he had heard everything that Wen Tong had just said.
Therefore, he sat down behind Wen Tong as tears started falling down his face.
&x201C;I am so tired. I am really exhausted. For the past few years, I have really exhausted myself. I really do not understand why we are torturing one another in this manner but&x2026;I just can&x2019;t let go. I am not even sure if I am doing this because I am still in love with Gao Mengjin or whether I am just trying to get back at the Gao family. Can any of you understand what I am feeling? I have forced myself to be strong and acted like a strong career woman who can fly all around the world on my own just because I am afraid and I feel so lonely inside.&x201D;
&x201C;I am afraid to face Gao Mengjin and I am afraid to face myself.&x201D;
Wen Tong cried. Gao Mengjin cried as well.
Jiang Yuning could not stand this kind of torture. She started crying when she thought about how she had felt when she was separated from Lu Jingzhi in the past.
Wen Luo approached Gao Mengjin and nudged him when he saw that he did not say anything at all. &x201C;You should speak up now.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin thought for a few seconds before he finally gathered the courage to speak up. His voice was shaky and he choked as he spoke to Wen Tong, &x201C;Let me take you away from this place, Wen Tong. We can go anywhere you want to and we can start our lives afresh. I can bring you to any beach or mountain, and we can start up a small business of our own. Let&x2019;s leave and find our passion and love for one another again, shall we?&x201D;
&x201C;I can&x2019;t leave you. Even if we have no children, even if we cannot conceive any children in the future, I am fine as long as you are by my side. I am contented as long as we have each another. Can you please let me stay by your side and love you for the rest of your life?&x201D;
As soon as Wen Tong heard Gao Mengjin&x2019;s voice, she turned around in surprise and plunged into Gao Mengjin&x2019;s arms immediately. &x201C;But you already have so many other women&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t have any other women. You are my one and only. You have always been the only one for me. All those women are just actresses that I have hired to act as your shield because I did not want anyone from the Gao family to trouble or attack you. Wen Tong, please believe me and have trust in me. I have already lost my precious daughter and I cannot afford to lose you too.&x201D;
Wen Tong could not help but cry even harder.
So many years of grievances and so many years of pain turned into tears at this moment.
&x201C;You&x2026;are you really willing to give up everything that the Gao family has to offer you?&x201D;
&x201C;I have already given up on it a long time ago.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin was a tall and muscular man but at this time, his eyes were red and bloodshot from crying.
It was an extremely touching and emotional moment.
&x201C;So, Wen Tong, please don&x2019;t torture me anymore. I don&x2019;t want you to torture yourself too. I know that you still love me and I still love you too. I want to stay by your side. I don&x2019;t want to leave you and I don&x2019;t want a divorce. Can you just bring me along with you wherever you would like to go? Don&x2019;t leave me alone to guard the house like an empty shell every time you leave.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin asked Wen Tong as he placed his arms around her neck.
Wen Tong could not stop crying and her heart melted at Gao Mengjin&x2019;s words.
How could she not believe every word that he had just said?
She could feel the extent of his love and his feelings for her.
It was just that&x2026;she did not believe that she could start all over again&x2026;
&x201C;Do you really think&x2026;that we can start all over again?&x201D;
&x201C;Listen to me. As long as you don&x2019;t give up on me, I will never give up on you until the day I die. So what if we can&x2019;t have a baby? All I want is you. You are the most important person in my life, do you know that? Wen Tong, you are my life.&x201D;
At this time, it wasn&x2019;t only Wen Tong, but the rest of the people listening to their conversation started crying as well.
This was because they were both so deeply in love.
Both husband and wife hugged each other tightly as they finally opened up their hearts to confess their feelings for one another.
In the end, Wen Tong and Gao Mengjin finally shared a kiss in the middle of the living room.
Jiang Yuning and the other guests exchanged glances with one another because they were not sure if they should retreat at this time.
If the couple wanted to do something more intimate, then wouldn&x2019;t it be awkward since there were so many guests around?
In the end, Wen Luo stepped forward and pushed the couple towards the stairs so they could head to the bedroom upstairs. &x201C;Both of you can go upstairs and continue kissing and be as intimate as you want to. The rest of us are going to continue drinking here.&x201D;
Wen Tong and Gao Mengjin were pushed into the bedroom by Wen Luo and after closing the bedroom door, both of them continued hugging and kissing one another.
They had already been separated for so many years and there was so much love that they felt for one another.
Since all of the misunderstandings between them had already been resolved, then there was no longer any need for the both of them to suppress their feelings for one another any more.
&x201C;Sister-in-Law, I owe you one!&x201D; Wen Luo said as he made a gesture with his hand. &x201C;Tell me what you want. I will even pick all the stars in the sky for you.&x201D;
&x201C;Who wants the stars that you pick?&x201D; At this time, a low voice came through the front door, attracting everyone&x2019;s attention.
&x201C;Second Brother&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning got up from the sofa as she ran over and threw herself into the man&x2019;s arms immediately. &x201C;You were not around earlier. It was so touching and emotional. I cried so much and my eyes are so swollen right now.&x201D;
