Chapter 1897 I Am Here
The person who received the news at Oceanic Estate was Sasha. She had been busy managing some of the estate’s accounts for that month in her study when the phone next to her suddenly beeped with a notification. She picked it up. Kurt?
She was surprised when she saw the sender of the message. Kurt had texted: Are you busy, Mrs. Hayes? I wish to speak to you regarding something.
This child has always been so polite. Sasha put down her work and started to message him back. She thought at first that Vivian was being disobedient again, so he had no choice but to come to her.
She replied: What’s up? Go ahead, Kurt. Kurt answered: Mrs. Hayes, Ian hasn’t been feeling well recently, but he doesn’t want to see a doctor. He keeps saying that he’s fine. Are you free? If so, can you come over and take a look at him?
Sasha: Huh? She was shocked. My son? And he’s sick? Why didn’t I know about this?
She immediately became anxious, and instead of texting back, she decided to call him directly. “Hello, Kurt. I’m Mrs. Hayes. You just said that Ian is sick. What’s going on? How did this happen?”
“I’m not very sure either, Mrs. Hayes, but he keeps locking himself in the room, and his mood is also very low. I asked him to see a doctor, but he didn’t want to. I ran out of ideas, so I called you.” Kurt came up with an excuse on the phone.
There was no way he could tell the truth. In this situation where it’s impossible to predict what the elders will think about that matter, the only way is to let one of them come over and see for themselves. And this person, the careful and gentle Mrs. Hayes, is perfect.
Sure enough, Sasha became frantic upon hearing that.
That day, as soon as Sebastian came back, she informed him that she was going to Yartran to visit their son.
He frowned. “How did he become emotionally unstable all of a sudden? Wasn’t he doing well last semester?”
Sasha replied, “Who hasn’t gone through times with emotional problems? I don’t care. I’m going to see my son. You’ve stopped caring about them ever since they grew up. All you care about is dealing with your business department matters all day long.”
As she spoke, she even started to grumble about him.
Veins were popping on Sebastian’s forehead.
However, he did not dare to argue anymore, and immediately after booking the ticket, he sent her to the airport.
“Are you sure you don’t need me to go with you, Darling?”
“No need. You can get back to your work. I’m fine on my own.”
Sasha decided she was done speaking to him and walked off while dragging her suitcase. After a while, she boarded the plane with a resentful look and set off for Yartran.
“Do you think she’s going through menopause?”
The driver who came over with Sebastian was extremely shocked.
“I-I don’t think so. Isn’t Mrs. Hayes only thirty-eight this year?”
Sebastian kept silent.
“Don’t think too much, Mr. Hayes. Mrs. Hayes was just too worried about Mr. Ian, which was why she was in such a hurry to head over there. Let me tell you. My wife is forty-five this year and still hasn’t reached menopause.”
Upon hearing that, Sebastian immediately responded. His tone betrayed his happiness.
What kind of guy is he?
Kurt went to pick Sasha up when she arrived at Yartran.
Ever since the last time she saw him more than half a year ago, the young man had grown a lot taller and muscular. Hence, when Sasha approached him, she discovered that she had to tilt her head back to speak to him.
“How did you get so tall? If you continue growing, you’ll be taller than Sebastian.”
“How is that possible?”
The seventeen-year-old youth immediately became a little shy.
The two came out of the airport and got into the car, where Sasha asked impatiently, “How’s the situation now? Is Ian all right?”
Kurt, who was seated in front, suddenly seemed hesitant to continue speaking.
“Actually… I kept it from him that I told you to come here, so if you see him, don’t ask him about his illness. Otherwise, he’ll be very angry when he finds out.”
Sasha did not suspect a thing.
She immediately agreed to pretend as though nothing had happened upon seeing her son after reaching the apartment.
She was much easier to persuade than Sebastian, not because she was not smart enough, but because she never once thought that the youngsters would hide anything from each other.
In other words, she acted purely like a mother would.
Upon seeing that Sasha trusted him fully, Kurt felt a little guilty. However, after thinking that it was for the sake of Ian, he felt that his action was necessary.
Sasha was taken to the apartment where everyone lived.
Sure enough, everyone was dumbfounded when they returned home after school and found Sasha waiting for them with a meal long prepared.
“Oh my! What brings you here, Mom? I’ve missed you so much!”
Vivian was the first to rush toward her mother.
She had always had the warmest relationship with her mother. No matter what, she would always act like a child upon seeing the latter.
Sasha also hugged her daughter, who was now taller than her, excitedly.
