On the way to pick up Little Kai Kai after she had gotten off her work, Su Meng received a call from her mother.
Hu Yang’s tone was especially gentle. It was so gentle that it was hair-raising. This was the first time that Su Meng had ever heard Hu Yang speak to her in this matter.
Hu Yang asked Su Meng about big things and little things as if she cared a lot for her. The topics ranged from breakfast to the drop in temperature at night to adjusting the heating. Her mother was very meticulous towards her.
Just when Su Meng was deep in dreamland and about to giggle, Hu Yang finally revealed the purpose behind the call.
She warily asked, “What did the Shen family say?”
Su Meng recalled the contract that Shen Yu’an had mentioned during the noon. She deeply furrowed her brows but flawlessly lied, “They never called back. I don’t know what they want.”
