I Am A Boss Mommy That Wants To Slack - Chapter 423 - 423 Reason
Doctor Xu brought Mother Rong and Rong Rong to Ward 403. But before they could get close, they were obstructed by someone.
Lu Hui and Chu Cichen’s bodyguards stood outside the ward to prevent anyone from attempting to harm Song Chen again. This was also something that Shen Ruojing had instructed them.
Hence, upon seeing Doctor Xu and the others, a guard immediately questioned, “What are you all trying to do here?”
Mother Rong’s eyes gleamed.
From the number of guards here, the person inside must be the eldest young miss of the Shen Family!
Although the Rong Family was also one of the four great families, they were similar to the Bai Family and belonged to the weakest tier. Even if that was the case, they were still part of the four great families.
However, things were different between them and Bai Xiaojiu. Bai Xiaojiu was from the direct branch of descent, so even if the family split, he was still the direct grandson.
On the other hand, Rong Rong’s family had already been split into branches.
Currently, the leader of the Rong Family was Rong Rong’s eldest uncle. Ever since her grandfather passed away and the Rong Clan split into branches, the standard of living of Rong Rong’s family was rapidly declining.
Hence, Rong Rong’s family always wanted to fawn on the main branch, but they were always looked down upon.
Now that the Shen Family had acknowledged a mysterious eldest young miss, everyone in the outside world thought back to the time when Shen Zhong and Shen Chong were stripped of their management positions. From this, they could be sure that Old Master Shen was planning to hand the Shen Family to his biological granddaughter!
Therefore, Shen Ruojing’s status elevated crazily. She was not merely the eldest young miss of the Shen Family. In fact, it was possible for her to be the future leader.
This was why everyone wanted to forge a connection with her. Even the main branch of the Rong Family wanted to do so, let alone Mother Rong.
Hence, Doctor Xu smiled and gently spoke, “I’m a doctor here, and I need to check on the patient’s condition. Please inform the eldest young miss of the Shen Family.”
Mother Rong also immediately spoke, “We are from the Rong Family and we have marriage relations with the Shen Family. We heard that the eldest young miss’s friend was warded, so we came to visit her.”
The guard surveyed the three of them. “The three of you wait here first. I’ll make a report.”
Inside the ward.
Shen Ruojing and Chu Cichen had long since arrived. At this moment, Song Chen already woke up and his gaze gradually filled with strength. He first surveyed the surroundings before he asked, “Where is Little Mi?”
Shen Ruojing. “I got someone to bring her away to rest.”
Song Chen didn’t doubt the truth of these words. It was as though he would believe whatever Shen Ruojing told him.
Song Chen gently smiled and his pale face portrayed the tenderness of a little puppy. It was still pretty taxing for him to talk, but he still managed to speak slowly. “You don’t have to worry about my body. Just ask whatever you want to ask.”
Shen Ruojing saw that his lips were very dry and as a doctor, her instincts made her subconsciously want to pour a cup of water and pass it to him.
Just when she stretched her hand out, another larger hand shot out quicker than her and grabbed the cup.
He poured a cup of water and didn’t bother testing the temperature as he directly passed it to Song Chen.
However, Song Chen’s injuries were too heavy, and he basically couldn’t move at this moment.
Shen Ruojing coughed and reminded Chu Cichen. “Use a cotton bud and wet it before dabbing his lips.”
Chu Cichen. “…”
He stared at the face that resembled him six years ago and felt extremely annoyed and unhappy in his heart. After wetting the cotton bud, he violently wiped Song Chen’s lips and tossed the cotton bud into the rubbish bin with a look of disdain on his face.
Song Chen was speechless. This man used too much strength and hurt his lips! Hence, he glared at Chu Cichen and wanted to speak, but it also looked like he didn’t dare to.
Seeing this, Shen Ruojing suppressed her laughter. Chu Cichen’s jealousy was truly great.
She coughed and started asking, “Let’s first talk about why you want to impersonate Chu Cichen to be at my side.”
Song Chen looked at her. “For money.”
His eyes were red and he revealed a look of shame when he spoke of this. It was as though he also loathed himself.
He slowly continued, “The special genetic condition I have is something innately acquired from birth. I lack the gene P+ and have to pay $60,000 in medical fees every month. Although my parents were from the capital, their income was only five to six thousand per month. As ordinary people, how could we afford such expenses? They sold their old house in the capital for my sake, but even so, they weren’t able to endure the expenses when I was 20 years old…
“Back then, they were merely forty but looked like they were in their sixties. Half their hair had turned white. Seeing this, I told them to have another kid and give up on me, and they agreed. My mother gave birth to Little Mi when she was around 40 years old. But because she was always so tired through the year, she lost too much blood during the delivery and passed away.”
When he spoke of this, Song Chen’s face was filled with sorrow.
He radiated a weak and helpless feeling.
When he spoke until here, he looked at Shen Ruojing. “Jingjing, do you know that when life is at the most difficult phase, you always feel that you would encounter hope and you would do your best to walk forward. However, you would soon realize what welcomes you is even deeper despair.”
“After my mother passed away, my father never recovered from his sorrow and even discovered that Little Mi has the same condition as me. At that time, he broke down completely and bought a large amount of insurance with the beneficiary listed as me. He then staged an accident and fell to his death while working on the 20th floor…”
Shen Ruojing’s lips were tightly pressed together when she heard this.
She had always thought that the majority of people in the world were leading ordinary and happy lives. It was extremely rare for them to truly encounter a huge crisis.
However, for Song Chen, all the difficulties in the world seemed to combine and crush his family.
She couldn’t help asking, “What happened then? Did the insurance company pay?”
“How would they possibly pay?” Song Chen bitterly smiled. “My parents were honest people and weren’t thoughtful or scheming enough. My father’s staged accident had many flaws, and after the insurance company investigated, they knew that he staged the accident. However, since he was already dead, they wouldn’t pursue any legal liability or make me and Little Mi bear the responsibility.”
“So, my father gave his life to seek a hint of hope for us, but it was ultimately useless.”
Shen Ruojing felt extremely rueful in her heart. Chu Cichen’s cold words broke the mood. “So, what does this have to do with the matter of you impersonating me?”
Shen Ruojing focused her thoughts and looked at Song Chen.
Song Chen bitterly smiled. “My father’s insurance payout failed, but I and Little Mi still have to live on. Although I’ve been studying for the past 20 years, I was just a fresh graduate, so how could I possibly find any good job? Upon seeing the money my parents had left for us lessening, I went to do all sorts of jobs while just sleeping four hours per day. However, I could only manage to earn $20,000 every month, and the remaining money for our treatment was about to run dry. As a result, Little Mi and I faced utter despair. If someone tossed out a life-saving rope to us at this moment, I would definitely grab it with no hesitation.
“At that time, someone actually looked for me. They told me they could give me a large sum of money, but they wanted me to impersonate someone to help them complete a task. At that time, I agreed with no hesitation. Because, if I had no money, the medication for me and Little Mi would be stopped next month and we would surely die without it.”
Chu Cichen’s gaze sank and asked the most critical question, “They want you to impersonate me, right? But why do you look exactly the same as me?”
