Twelve Years Later.
Thopiavelle, winter. This winter has been extraordinarily cold.
The doctor came to give the mother-in-law an infusion, but the needle could no longer penetrate the vein.
The doctor shook his head at Siena, and left with the medicine box.
Seeing the back of the doctor leaving, Siena’s tears fell down.
“Siena…” The mother-in-law’s voice came weakly on the bed.
Siena quickly wiped away the tears from the corners of her eyes, adjusted her emotions, turned around, and walked to the bedside.
“Mother-in-law, don’t be afraid. The doctor forgot to take the medicine. He went back to the clinic to get it.” Siena didn’t want her mother-in-law to think wildly.
Mother-in-law fell a year ago and couldn’t get up again. If Siena hadn’t taken good care of her, her mother-in-law would have left long ago.
To be able to live until now, her mother-in-law had lived enough, and she was too tired.
Mother-in-law had been unable to eat anything since three months ago. Now she was only skin and bones, and every time she took a breath, there would be severe pain in her chest.
“Siena…I-I’m leaving…you…don’t cry…” The mother-in-law grabbed Siena’s hand, tears glistening in her eyes, “I….I really can’t bear you…”
“Grandma, I also can’t bear you…I don’t want you to go!” Siena held her mother-in-law’s skinny hand with both hands and cried loudly, ” What should I do when you are gone? I want you to stay with me all the time, I haven’t repaid you yet, how can you go…”
The mother-in-law was very moved, and the pain in her body eased a lot.
Because of the appearance of Siena, her mediocre life has become more colorful.
She died without regret.
“My dear Siena, I’ve dragged you down…” The mother-in-law’s voice was weak, and as she spoke, two lines of tears fell from the corners of her eyes, “You must….be happy in the future…be careful…beware of bad people…”
Siena cried so hard that she couldn’t respond to her mother-in-law’s words.
“Also…” the mother-in-law continued to confess her last words, “The mask on your face…can’t be, can’t be taken off now…after eighteen years old…You can…”
This sentence, mother-in-law said to Siena many times.
Siena nodded sharply: “Grandma, I will listen to you, I will listen to you in everything.”
“Well…you are the most obedient…after I die… Just find a place to bury it…don’t, don’t spend money…hey, hey…” The mother-in-law thought about the year she was ill, although she insisted on refusing to go to the hospital for treatment, but Siena always asked the doctor to come to her to prescribe medicine and infusion, and it must have cost a lot when she came down all the time.
Siena was just a student. Wherever she has money, she must be looking for work in private.
Listening to her mother-in-law’s sigh, Siena’s defenses completely collapsed.
She couldn’t say a word, she just hung her head and kept crying.
She didn’t know how long it took, but the surroundings suddenly became eerily quiet.
Siena wiped away her tears and looked at her mother-in-law.
Fortunately, the mother-in-law still opened her eyes and looked at her.
“Grandma, you never told me who my father is…can you tell me now?” Siena choked up and asked this question, “I won’t go to him, I promise. I’m just curious about who he is.”
The expression on the mother-in-law’s face remained motionless, only tears kept falling from the corners of her eyes.
She was completely out of strength.
She could hear Siena’s cry, she could hear Siena’s question, she kept looking at Siena, reluctant to close her eyes.
“He, he is…” The mother-in-law exhausted all her strength to make a sound, trying to answer Siena, but she died before she could say the name ‘Elliot Foster’.
“Mother-in-law! Mother-in-law!” Siena cried out in fright when she saw her mother-in-law’s eyes suddenly dimmed.
All the surrounding colors become black and white, and all the noise is erased.
