Chapter 1918 Ridiculous
“What are you doing?” Susan walked over to the bed.
Sigrith panicked when Susan entered. She turned in shock to look at her daughter, who had returned out of the blue, and was at a loss for words for a moment. “You—”
“Tell me. What are you trying to do? Kill yourself? Why are you trying to kill yourself? Did you think that you were in the right? When have I ever told you that I’ve found a boyfriend? Moreover, you said that my boyfriend’s an officer from an aristocratic family.”
Susan was not going to beat around the bush with Sigrith at all. The moment she reached the bed, she began questioning her mother in a stern tone without hesitation.
When Timothy heard her, he berated Susan in a tone tinged with anger, “Susan Limmer, what are you doing? Instead of expressing concern for her, you’re chiding her! You’re her daughter, not her mother!”
When Sigrith realized that her son was siding with her, confidence began growing in her. “That’s right. I’m your mother. Not only are you not helping me out, but you’re even berating me the moment you get here. Do you even have a heart?”
“A heart?” Surprisingly, Susan calmed down at the peak of her anger.
“You know what it’s like to have a heart? To have a heart, you must first be morally right, but is that what you’re doing right now? What have you done instead? Don’t you know the people are saying that the Jadesons are bullies? Is this what you want to see?”
Sigrith did not answer her.
“Or could it be that you’ve done this on purpose? What are you trying to do? Do you think that you get to twist words now that your husband’s surname is Limmer and you’ve moved into Golden Heights? Do you think that everything you say is right? Do you think that the Jadesons can’t do anything to you anymore?” Susan roared furiously.
Susan could guess that her mother had done it deliberately. However, she could not wrap her mind around what her mother had in mind. Does she think that she’s powerful enough to go up against the Jadesons now? She’s even trying to turn the public against the Jadesons!
Susan was about to go mad from the wrath she felt.
Nevertheless, Sigrith still did not think that she had done anything wrong. After her brief moment of anger, she retorted, “Cease the nonsense. I only did that because I felt ashamed.”
“That’s right, Susan. Why must you say such harsh things? This is our mother you’re talking about. Is she that bad?” Timothy chimed in.
Upon hearing them, Susan felt anger rush through her, and she barked out a laugh. Then, she fixed her gaze on her mother and coldly uttered, “I’m sure she knows better than me whether or not that’s the case. Furthermore, you know best what happened between the two of you.”
Sigrith fell silent.
After the moment of panicking, she dared not even look into her daughter’s eyes anymore.
Truth be told, Sigrith was a little afraid of her daughter. Susan had been too smart since young. Nothing Sigrith did could escape Susan’s eyes. However, Timothy was denser, unlike his sister.
Therefore, after her father’s death and the fact that she had grown up, she became the one with the most say when it came to family matters.
In the end, Sigrith said nothing, for not long after, Sasha and Sebastian from the Jadeson family came.
When Sasha arrived and saw the arguing mother-and-daughter duo, she intervened and asked her to step out of the room for a chat. “Susan, don’t blame your mother for this anymore. Come out for a moment. I’d like to talk to you about something.”
It was then Susan left the room.
Once Susan stepped out of the room and before she could say anything, Susan’s eyes reddened.
“All right, all right. Don’t cry first. This isn’t as serious as you think it is. We’ll deal with this well, so don’t worry,” Sasha reassured.
Susan just kept wiping her tears away until she could calm down. Then, she raised her head to look at Sasha and Sebastian before choking out, “Thank you, Mrs. Hayes.”
In the end, she could only thank Sasha for her merciful nature.
After all, Susan genuinely did not know how else to express her apologetic feelings about the current situation.
When Sasha saw Susan’s miserable expression, she reached out to pat her head dotingly. “There’s no need for you to be so courteous with us, and don’t be mad with your mother because of this. Your mother has done all these for you.”
“Yes, for you. Susan, remember this, every mother wants to treat their children well. Sometimes, they might do the wrong things for the sake of their children. However, you have to remember not to resent her for her actions, for no matter what she did, she did it for you,” Sasha solemnly said to Susan as she looked at the younger woman.
As she stared at Sasha, who was also a mother, in a daze, she mulled about her mother. All of a sudden, she felt that the two women were two vastly different people.
Susan was not talking about status or identity; she was talking about their characters.
My mother should be ashamed of what she has done.
In the end, Susan watched the couple leave. By the time she returned to the ward, she had already recomposed herself.
However, that was not the case for Sigrith, who began defensive once she saw her daughter entering the room. Before Susan could say anything, Sigrith questioned, “What did she tell you? Did she tell you everything?”
Susan drew her brows together.
Yet, when her mother saw that frown on her, she went mad.
“Yes, I admit that I did this so that you won’t be with her son. I got on my knees and begged him, but what did I do wrong? Susan, you’re my daughter! How can I possibly watch you marry a mentally ill man without doing anything?”
The ward fell silent after Sigrith’s outburst.
