He Xuezhu had just set the food. With a lift of her eyes, she saw her husband standing in the yard, he had a slight smile on his face. Somehow, they clearly have been married for three years, but her heart was still as jittery as it was when she first got married.
While she was thinking, Lin Shiheng smiled at her: “Xuezhu, what are the dishes today?”
His voice was gentle and slightly magnetic. The chopsticks in He Xuezhu hands trembled, and her face is red with heat. She lowered her head and whispered, “There is old hen stew, stir-fried cucumber, Chinese cabbage …”[we do not translate 4 other websites besides translateindo]
For the Lins, this was already a very rich dish. Lin Shiheng sat on the stool with a smile and looked at the stewed chicken soup on the table. His voice was a little surprised: “Did Mom guess I was coming back today? This chicken soup needs a lot of time to cook.”
Speaking of this, He Xuezhu’s head dropped even lower. Remembering her husband’s strange look at her and asked her if she had taken good care of her mother every time he came back. She had a little timidity in her voice “This chicken soup … mother cooked it for me.”
As she said that, her face tenses. She was afraid that her husband thought he had not been filial to her mother-in-law. But she didn’t know how to explain it. She just stood stiffly as if waiting for a trial.
Lin Shiheng looked at He Xuezhu. He was clearly facing the person who shared a pillow with him, but her posture was stiff and her hands were twisted. It was a state of fear and self-reproach after making mistakes.
He can easily guess why she is such a reason. It’s because she has been belittled since childhood. He Xuezhu has an inferiority complex. As long as someone blames her for a mistake, she will fall into doubt, guilt, and self-blame. No matter whether the mistake is caused by her or not.
He Xuezhu is really feeling guilty and remorseful. As a daughter-in-law, she actually asked her mother-in-law to cook chicken soup for her?! Moreover, she drank chicken soup for several days. Although Li Chunhua also drank it, the nature of the ‘chicken soup specially cooked by mother-in-law’ is quite different.[please read at translateind0]
Will Shiheng misunderstand? Will he think she bullied mom?
She wanted to explain that she had refused, but she was told by her mother to have a good drink and get well so that she could wait until Shiheng came back to prepare for pregnancy. How could she say that?!
He Xuezhu’s face flushed bright red, fingers twisted to the point of white, full of panic. Lin Shiheng suddenly reached out a hand suddenly took her hands.[if your NOT reading at Translateindo, this chapter has been copied without permission]
“Xuezhu, it seems that you are really good to mom. Otherwise, according to mom’s temperament, she wouldn’t cook stew for you to drink. Thank you for helping me take care of my mom at home for so long. Is it very hard?”
He Xuezhu listened to his gentle voice and raised her head unbelievingly. She looked at Lin Shiheng in dismay. She did not expect that Shiheng would say such a thing to her.
It took her quite a few seconds before she remembered and answered, “No, it’s not hard. I didn’t do anything …”
The handsome man in front of her looked at her with gentle eyes. He slightly lowered his head and looked at her hands, gently rubbing her calluses.[please read at translateind0]
He Xuezhu had some inferiority complex, so she shrank and retract her hands. “Don’t look, ugly …”
“Where is it ugly? In my opinion, this is proof of labor. Xuezhu, if Mom would cook chicken soup for you, you must have been very good. You don’t have to do this.”
“Come, sit down and drink some soup.”
He Xuezhu was pulled to sit down and watched Lin Shiheng serving soup for her with a smile. The joy and happiness in her heart just now turned into bitterness.
It turns out that he was kind to her because of her mother-in-law?
Shiheng has always been very filial to his mother, and she has always known that.
He is good to her now, just because he thinks her mother-in-law likes her, but actually, He Xuezhu knows perfectly well whether Li Chunhua likes her or not.[ not reading this at Translateindo? it’s been stolen]
Clearly, she should tell him. But looking at her husband so gentle and considerate; personally giving her soup, and that look in his eyes with that warm smile. How could He Xuezhu open her mouth?
Under Lin Shiheng’s coaxing, she picked up the bowl and took a sip of chicken soup. Her heart was sour and felt constricted. Obviously, she was not feeling well. She tried hard to squeeze out a smile and looked at her gentle husband in front of her as if in a dream: “It’s delicious.”
“Drink more if it tastes good. Next time we will stew chicken soup.”
Lin Shiheng said, looking up, “Why hasn’t Mom come out yet? Didn’t she say she just forgot something?”
He Xuezhu hurriedly put down her bowl and stood up: “I’ll call Mom …”
“No, no. I’m coming.”[translateindo.C0m does not post chapters anywhere else]
Li Chunhua lifted the curtain as she said this sentence. She hurriedly wiped the corners of her eyes and walked down the steps.
As soon as she got down, she saw her son looking at her with a nervous expression. Even his voice trembled: “Mom, why are your eyes red?”
He wanted to hide it, but it became even more obvious. He stood up again and asked, “Did you go to my room?”
“No, no, no!”[translateindo.C0m does not post chapters anywhere else]
Seeing her son walking towards the house as soon as she spoke nervously, Li Chunhua waved her hand and stuttered to find an excuse: “There… there was just some dust that got in my eye. I rubbed my eyes when I felt uncomfortable, and they turned red.”
Lin Shiheng obviously breathed a sigh of relief, and his expression was relaxed and a bit distressed. “Is it still uncomfortable now? Shall I blow it for you?”
Obviously, it can be solved without any discomfort. However, fearing that her son would not believe it, nodded quickly and said, “It’s still uncomfortable. Please help me blow it. Right eye.”
Li Chunhua stood with one eye widened and could hardly see Lin Shiheng in front of her with the other.
He is handsome and tall, just by standing there a military temperament could be seen. At the moment he had a serious expression, blowing his mother’s eye.[we do not translate 4 other websites besides translateindo]
Li Chunhua’s eyes have been brimming with tears.
