Remember Self-Control: Bossy Husband Loves Me Deep to Soul - Chapter 15
Proofread by He Li
Yan Xiuya finally becomes unsatisfied with Gong Siming who keeps staying out all night, and the criticism from her father-in-law actually makes her ashamed. If she cannot educate her own son to behave well, it's going to make her an object of ridicule when other people know.
After careful consideration, Yan Xiuya finally makes a call to Gong Siming though she doesn't want to intervene too much. But she knows that her father-in-law is really angry this time, otherwise he won't flare up in that way.
"Gong Siming, where are you?" As soon as the phone is answered, Yan Xiuya starts her questioning, which makes Gong Siming at the other side kind of impatient.
"I'm busy, is there anything wrong?" Running his figures through his hair with annoyance, Gong Siming knows that presumably it's because Si Wan told his mother something, which makes her call him with a serious voice at such a time.
Gong Siming gives a snort because he thinks Si Wan is free to get seductively dressed and date with other men, and why is his staying out so unbearable? This double-faced woman! Gong Siming holds back the anger in his heart and still keeps polite to his mother as he should do.
"I've something pressing. If there is something necessary, please wait until I finish my work." After his words, Gong Siming hangs up the phone, so Yan Xiuya has to stop the words on her lips.
He's becoming more and more out of line. Feeling unpleasant, Yan Xiuya dials the number again, but is only informed that the other side has shut down. Knitting her brows, Yan Xiuya thinks it is necessary to meet him in person.
After driving to Gong Siming's another house in the downtown, Yan Xiuya rings the doorbell but receives no response.
This is where Gong Siming often stays. Usually, as long as he stays out all night or needs to be alone, he will always be here. These days he has not returned home, so he must have lived inside. Thinking of this, Yan Xiuya assumes a gloomy look. Does he think that no response will manage to drive her away?
Yan Xiuya reaches out and knocks the door: "Gong Siming, get out! I'm your mother. Do you think I don't know you? You must open the door today. We must talk."
After she has knocked the door for a long time, Yan Xiuya's hands feel tired, but from inside it's still silent. She starts to doubt whether Gong Siming is in here.
"I want to talk about Si Wan with you, just open the door. I'll leave as long as I finish my words." Her tired voice sounds a little compromised, which also makes Gong Siming kind of guilty. Well, just listen to her. But if required to return home, he absolutely won't agree.
"Mother." As expected, Gong Siming opens the door slowly. When seeing this, Yan Xiuya feels nearly at her wits end with her son although she knows for sure the brat is inside the house.
"Am I still your mother?" Yan Xiuya stares at Gong Siming, who indifferently ignores that.
"When you forced me to marry Si Wan, was I your son?" An ironic look flashes across his face, which makes Yan Xiuya rooted to the ground with her brows knitted.
She has always known that her son is unsatisfied with his marriage arranged by his family. But she didn't know that he still has a grudge against the family even after such a long time.
"Si Wan is quite good at managing the Gongshi Group." After Yan Xiuya sits on the sofa, Gong Siming gives her a glass of water.
"The Gongshi Group is not in shortage of elites." With the corners of his mouth rising, Gong Siming shows his ridicule. Lifting her cup, Yan Xiuya sighs and takes a sip before she starts to speak.
"Can't you see clearly what she has done after such a long time?" Feeling a little bitter in her heart, as a woman, Yan Xiuya seems to understand what her father-in-law once said. It is true that the Gong Family owes Si Wan.
Leaning on the sofa lazily, Gong Siming seems to think about something. Finding him silent, Yan Xiuya sets her cup down, "Two years is not short. Since you don't like her, it's time to call an end."
Yan Xiuya takes a breath of relief. The unemotional expression in her eyes makes Gong Siming a little uneasy: "What two years? Time to do what? Mother, are you beating about the bush even in face of me?"
Gong Siming sits upright at once, after which Yan Xiuya stops talking in a roundabout way and directly tells him the plan of his grandfather.
"At that time when your grandfather forced you to marry Si Wan, he also made an appointment. He would only give you two years. When time is out, as long as Si Wan hopes to leave, she would be free to go."
"What!" With an astonished face, Gong Siming seems not to believe. When did this happen? Why didn't he know?
"What? Are you happy now? The two-year appointment is about to end, I can see that your grandfather is prepared to set Si Wan free. After all, the agreement is to expire, so we can't decide whether Si Wan will go."
There is no other expression on Yan Xiuya's face. Feeling astonished, Gong Siming can sense that a strange feeling in his heart also gradually arises.
"When making such a decision, have they ever considered my feelings?" Gong Siming clenches his hands.
He doesn't know the reason why he feels a little unpleasant when hearing Si Wan is about to leave. Is that because she chooses to escape after saying that she would get entangled with him the whole life? Cowardly deserter!
Gong Siming gives a snort. Then, Yan Xiuya continues: "Si Wan is true to you. You should not have a bias against her. Besides, stop thinking about Feng Ling all the time. Of course she is pitiful, but you shouldn't confuse sympathy with love, as it's not only unfair to Si Wan, but the same to you as well."
Yan Xiuya says in all earnestness, as she can see what Si Wan has offered. But Gong Siming only cares about a woman lying on the bed who actually did nothing for him.
"I believe that you can sense Si Wan's love. But even if she loves you deeply, she can't tolerate the hurt from you again and again." Looking at Gong Siming who keeps silent, Yan Xiuya feels all sorts of feelings welling up in her mind: "Don't do anything you'll regret about in the future."
Shaking her head, Yan Xiuya picks up her handback and walks outside. When closing the door, she feels a light heartache while seeing Gong Siming being lost in his thought. But it's his own decision, as a mother, she can only remind him instead of intervening.
After his mother leaves, Gong Siming thinks with mixed feelings about Si Wan who will leave. This makes him hard to accept, as he has never imagined the person who gets entangled with him would leave him one day.
Didn't she say that she will love him forever? Why does she choose to leave only after experiencing some grievances? With a smile, Gong Siming shakes his head, without noticing the hesitation on his face.
He turns on his mobile phone, with his long and slim fingers sliding on the screen. Putting his fingertip on Si Wan's name, he has a lot of questions to ask, such as why she chooses to leave. But his fingers hesitate to make the call.
From what perspective can he question her? Or it should be said that her leaving is what he is looking forward to. After hesitation, Gong Siming turns off his phone. He is supposed to be happy as Si Wan, the annoying woman, is finally going to disappear from his life.
Standing up, Gong Siming takes his coat by the door. This good news should be told to Feng Ling, as they can finally get together.
"Feng Ling…" Gong Siming mutters the name to himself, but all that comes to his mind is another person: Si Wan.
