You Treat Me As If I Have A Sickness - Chapter 2
Chapter 2- His Majesty, Emperor?
Standing at the gate of Xu Resistance, a car stopped in front of Xu Yuan. She was no longer curious about cars, she often saw Father Xu and Brother Xu coming out from the balcony. She learned from TV that this is a means of transportation, just like the carriage of her time. This car is more comfortable than the carriage. Now, Xu Yuan felt glad one more time. Fortunately, she had experienced those years. Otherwise, if she was still the kid who had entered the palace, it surprised her to see everything.
Mrs Xu said sincerely, “After going back, admit your mistakes. You had nothing to do during this time. Spend more time with your mother-in-law. I know your mother-in-law, and she is warmhearted and easy to talk to.”
Mother-in-law played a significant role in a family, which Xu Yuan knew. She nodded her head. The information provided by Mrs Xu is very useful to her.
“Your car is being repaired. I guess it will take some time. Let the driver drive you home, so I can rest easy.” She was afraid that her daughter would not listen to her own words. Mrs Xu emphasized it again. “You should not drive during this time. It scared me the other day. Fortunately, you are alright.”
Xu Yuan vaguely knew that before she became a real Miss of the Xu family, her original owner almost had an accident. Fortunately, the person was fine, but it damaged the car. She didn’t know if it relates her arrival and the departure of the original owner to the car accident.
Mrs Xu’s worry was unwanted. Right now she couldn’t drive even if she wanted to. She nodded cleverly and whispered, “Mom, I know, you can relax.”
“I must have owed your brother and sister in my previous life. If you want to reassure me, then live well with Zhengrong.” Mrs Xu looked up at the sky and it was getting late, so she quickly opened the car door and let Xu Yuan get in the car.
Perhaps it was separation anxiety since Xu Yuan was reluctant to leave Mrs Xu. She had just come to this strange era. Although she knows that the current situation is good, at least there will be no worry about her life, and now she is going to another brand-new environment, facing a stranger as a husband. Although Xu Yuan’s heart does not fluster, it had some repulsion. Xu Yuan obediently got in the car, waved goodbye to Mrs Xu. She watched the Xu Residence getting farther and farther, and she withdrew her sight. Since she came to this era, she has never been out. The street lights in this city are on. The traffic is heavy, and the lights interlaced. There was not a shadow of her era. From the driver’s point of view, Xu Yuan was looking at the scenery outside the window with an indifferent expression. However, only Xu Yuan knows the raging waves inside her heart when she looked at this strange new thing.
Once upon a time, the emperor complained to her more than once, saying the lanterns in the palace were not bright. His eyes were uncomfortable after reading for a long time at night. She privately thought she was going to find a bright and non-shaking lamp. Now looking at these lamps, Xu Yuan thought. If only she could take one back. It would thrill his Majesty. On second thought, the emperor had died. She was inexplicably sad again.
She also doesn’t know how long it took. The car drove into a villa and stopped at the door of a villa. Before Xu Yuan got out of the car, two people came out of the yard and stood by respectfully.
One man ran to the back of the car, opened the trunk, and lifted Xu Yuan’s suitcase. A lady who seemed a bit aged opened the car door. She smiled at Xu Yuan and said, “Has missus eaten yet? The food is all set.”
Xu Yuan took advantage of the situation and looked around the villa, about the same size as Xu’s residence. “I haven’t eaten yet.”
The woman nodded, paused, and carefully asked, “Will missus wait for your husband to come back for dinner, or will you eat now?”
She can guess from this woman’s tone and eyes that she should want her to wait for Meng Zhengrong to come back for dinner.
Xu Yuan thought for a moment and said, “I won’t wait for him.”
She hasn’t seen Meng Zhengrong yet. In the eyes of others, they considered the original owner to be “willful.” It’s unwise to rush to play the role of a good wife. Meng Zhengrong, himself, sent a text message to tell her not to wait for him. She wouldn’t have to go hungry to please him.
The woman showed disappointment when she heard the news. She nodded enthusiastically and replied, “All the dishes made in the kitchen are the dishes Missus likes to eat. You can eat right away.”
Xu Yuan followed the woman into the villa. She looked straight ahead and resisted the impulse to look around the house. She has been with the emperor for almost ten years, not to mention eating all the delicacies. She didn’t know the time separation between the era. The food cooked by the chefs here is excellent but in terms of the fineness of the ingredients. It is still far behind the chefs in the palace. Xu Yuan had a good appetite. After drinking a bowl of soup and eating a bowl of rice. She could know the time here without an obstacle. It’s half-past eight. It is because of the instinct left by the original body.
Meanwhile, Meng Zhengrong sat in the car and was only ten minutes away from home. His cell phone rang, and when he picked it up, it was his mother. Meng Zhengrong had headaches, but he still picked it up. His voice was much softer than when he answered the phone with Xu Yuan. “Mom.”
Mother Meng asked with concern, “Zhengrong, are you getting off the plane now? Have you eaten yet?”
“I have already got off the plane. Now on my way home, I will go home for dinner.” Meng Zhengrong answered.
“Then will you come back for dinner tomorrow?” Mother Meng’s concern about the matter. She hasn’t seen her son for a long time. Naturally, she is very concerned.
“Yes, I will come back for dinner, tomorrow.” Meng Zhengrong thought about it and said, “I will come for both lunch and dinner.”
When she heard this, Mother Meng was happy, but when she thought of her daughter-in-law, her face collapsed again, and her voice was blunt. “Xu Yuan, too. Although you ignored her when you got married, you didn’t go out to have fun, you went to work. She didn’t understand you and even went to live at her maternal house for around half a month. Those who could understand would say she was homesick, but those who don’t understand would think my Meng family mistreated her!”
Meng Zhengrong’s reason for headache is this. He, himself, had no opinion on Xu Yuan’s going back to her family. He was not home, and she just got married. She must miss her family, but he could also understand his mother’s opinion. Meng Zhengrong knew in his heart that he doesn’t want to see an inextricable contradiction between his wife and mother. In the company, he is the boss who solves the problem. At home, he has to be the son and husband who solves the problem. Thinking of this, Meng Zhengrong softly said, “Mom, I asked her to go back for a while.”
When this came out, it shocked Mother Meng. After coming to her senses, she was very dissatisfied and asked: “You let her go back? Why are you so ignorant? Who has just got married and let her run back to her family! ”
“Am I not going on a business trip? Leaving her alone at home, I was afraid of her grievances and let her go back. To know there is such a particular concern, I will not make such a proposal. Mom, can we apologize to you tomorrow?”
He is her son. A mother is like this, for their children to always be tolerant. Mother Meng also didn’t intend to pull this for long. Otherwise, she won’t have waited until Meng Zhengrong comes back to say this question. Now, hearing her son’s reasons, there is no reason to pursue.
“No need to apologize. Pay attention next time. Don’t tell this thing when you go back, just come back for dinner on time tomorrow.” Mother Meng’s tone relaxed.
Hanging up the phone, Meng Zhengrong breathed a sigh of relief.
Xu Yuan didn’t tell him about her living back home. Meng Zhengrong didn’t want to argue with her. It was tiring dealing with business. She was his wife, so there wasn’t any need to fuss over. In conclusion, he equally shares the blame, even if two people don’t have feelings again. He went on a business trip after getting married. Meng Zhengrong looked at the gift bag lying quietly beside the car seat. When he was on a business trip abroad, he asked his assistant to buy the bag which was a gift for her, hoping to ease the embarrassing relationship between the two. Ten minutes later, the car stopped at the door of the villa. Meng Zhengrong got out of the car and asked the driver to send the assistant home. He didn’t have much luggage, just a briefcase. The housekeeper came out and helped Meng Zhengrong carry the briefcase quickly. Half a step behind him. “Sir, the food is ready. Would you like to take a bath or eat first?”
Meng Zhengrong took a quick step and asked in a low voice, “Is the madam home?”
“Yes, yes.” The housekeeper hastily nodded.
Meng Zhengrong thought they were still newlyweds. He came back from a business trip. He has to put down other things to talk to her is the most important. After entering the villa, he gave the suitcase in the housekeeper’s hand and went upstairs.
The housekeeper and the other servant didn’t dare to say anything and retreated to one side. The world of these two people were really quiet for the newlyweds.
After Meng Zhengrong went upstairs, he took a light step and walked to the bedroom door. He first knocked on the door and then pushed the door open.
Xu Yuan had just finished her meal, watched TV downstairs for a while, and went to the room upstairs. Before she could look at her future bedroom, she went straight to the bathroom. As soon as she came out of the bathroom, she heard a knock at the door, guessing that Meng Zhengrong had come back. She had experienced so many big winds and waves in the past, and if she feels uneasy about such a thing. It is reasonable. Xu Yuan calmly adjusted her hair. When she was about to open the door, the door swung open. She looked at the past subconsciously. Her original expression was calm, but when she saw Meng Zhengrong’s face, her eyes suddenly widened and she looked at him in disbelief. Meng Zhengrong looked at Xu Yuan, only to feel that her expression was weird.
Xu Yuan’s legs were soft. She knelt directly on the thick wool carpet, trembled as she shouted, “… His Majesty, Emperor?”
