Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Ning Yuya sat in front of the bed, appearing pale and anxious. Her eyes were glassed over and she suddenly blacked out. Her mother had already been in a comatose state for a day and a night. She had yet to come to.
She stared at her mother who was lying on the bed, beneath the white duvet. She was no longer as radiant as before and looked extremely pathetic.
Ning Yuya was way too naive to have thought that Ning Shuqian would be able to manipulate Wen Haowen. Besides, Ning Shuqian had developed a terrible mental illness.
How could the prideful Wen Haowen tolerate having a wife who had a mental condition?
She was reminded of the past.
On the night of the day before yesterday, Ning Yuya had gone to a bar and overslept afterward. If she had not received a call from Xia Ruya, she wouldn’t have known about what happened. She rushed to the hospital, only to discover that the Wen Family had sent Ning Shuqian to the hospital. During then, Ning Shuqian looked extremely maniacal and horrifying. Even Ning Yuya was terrified by her behavior. The Wen Family was doing their best to restrain her and hold her down while she hollered at Wen Haowen at the top of her voice like an irrational beast.
She felt a cold shiver down her spine and goosebumps formed on her skin. She shuddered and stared at her mother in disbelief. Her mother, who used to be elegant and refined, had actually become so grotesque.
The doctor injected Ning Shuqian with a sedative and she finally got a grip on herself. However, her face was still as tense as before.
Ning Shuqian was then pushed into the treatment room while Ning Yuya waited outside on the long bench. The bench was cold and hard, making her feel chilly.
She’s gone crazy!
Those words made Ning Yuya hold her breath, almost passing out.
A long while later, the door of the treatment room was pushed open abruptly. She snapped out of her thoughts and frantically questioned the doctor in a shrilling voice, “Doctor, how’s my mother now?”
“Don’t worry. We’ve already hypnotized the patient and her condition has stabilized.”
Ning Yuya tensed up and her lips trembled. “Doctor, has my mother’s condition worsened…”
The images of her mother acting maniacally flashed through her mind repeatedly and her throat became dry. Fear and horror were in her voice, and she was unable to finish her sentence.
“Don’t worry, we’ve already checked her mental condition. She may have lost control of her emotions, but her mental illness was treated in time because we discovered it early. Her condition hasn’t worsened yet.”
She heaved a sigh of relief and sat on the chair feebly, patting her own chest and feeling thankful. “Fortunately… good to hear…”
A grim expression formed on the doctor’s face and he said, “However… her condition is a little more severe than before. It’s only a matter of time before she goes crazy…”
Ning Yuya continuously thought about the doctor’s words and was overwhelmed with fear and anxiety, trying to do everything she could to get rid of the noises.
Ning Yuya was filled with misery while gazing at the soundly sleeping Ning Shuqian.
If it weren’t because of that bitch Wen Xinya, she and Ning Shuqian wouldn’t have ended up in such a pathetic state.
At this moment, Ning Shuqian opened her eyes slowly and was stunned to see the white walls.
Ning Yuya burst into tears of joy and exclaimed agitatedly, “Mother… you’re awake!”
Ning Shuqian looked at Ning Yuya and finally focused her vision on her. “Yu… Yuya!”
As soon as she finished speaking, she realized that her voice was coarse and terrible. Her throat turned dry and painful, no longer able to speak.
Ning Yuya hurriedly poured her a glass of water and fed it to her.
Ning Shuqian finally felt much more comfortable after downing an entire glass of water. However, her throat still hurt terribly. Ning Yuya asked concernedly, “Mother, are you alright? Do you feel uncomfortable?”
Ning Shuqian struggled with the pain and asked, “My head hurts. My throat too. I… what happened to me?”
Ning Yuya asked in confusion, “Mother, don’t you remember what happened before… Father… did you do that to him?”
Due to the fact that Wen Haowen’s scandal was exposed at a coincidental timing, Ning Yuya suspected that Ning Shuqian was behind it. After all, the exposure of the scandal was advantageous to Ning Shuqian.
Ning Shuqian shook her head and asked, “What happened? What happened to Haowen?”
Ning Yuya’s eyes widened in shock and she said in disbelief, “Mother… you…”
Did Mother really forget everything?
It was said on the internet, that mental patients would suffer from amnesia if their condition were to worsen. Tears began to roll down her cheek.
Ning Shuqian got a great shock and asked in bewilderment, “Yuya, did something happen? Did I suffer a relapse?”
Ning Yuya wanted to speak but decided not to after getting reminded of the doctor’s words. “The patient is in a terrible mental state. It’s best to let her recuperate well. Don’t let her suffer another agitation…”
Ning Shuqian placed a hand on her forehead and turned as pale as a sheet. She asked in a hoarse voice, “Yuya, has my condition…”
Ning Yuya frantically said, “Mother, the doctor said that your condition has already stabilized. It didn’t get worse. What’s important now is that you rest well.”
She stared at her mother, feeling a little hesitant. She thought that her mother was the one who had planned Wen Haowen’s scandal. However, she began to feel a little uncertain.
Ning Shuqian’s pale face began to contort and resentment was written all over her face. “Did that heartless Wen Haowen ask for divorce again?”
Ning Yuya frantically shook her head and said, “Mother… no! Father didn’t come to the hospital, he really didn’t.”
Ning Shuqian stared at her daughter whom she did not wish to inform about the divorce, lest she gets involved.
Seeing how haggard Ning Shuqian was, Ning Yuya carefully pinched the corners of the duvet and said, “Mother, don’t let your imagination run wild. The doctor said that you must get more rest.”
Ning Shuqian nodded feebly.
Ning Yuya watched as she dozed off slowly before exiting the ward stealthily.
She planned to buy some of her mother’s favorite magazines.
