Chapter 13
Editor : Eira-chan

When she woke up the next day, the father and son had already left.

Lin Qingqing thought about the necklace and wanted to see if it could be repaired. After breakfast, she took a taxi to the jewelry store. Thankfully, the jewelry could still be repaired, but the clerk told her that it could not be restored to its original shape. She told the clerk it wasn’t a big deal as long as it could still be repaired. 

Back home, Lin Qingqing began to be busy in the workshop again. Before long, the maid knocked on the door and handed her an express package. She opened it and saw that it was a rejection from the music company.

It seemed that she composed manuscripts to send to music companies when she had nothing to do. But, it appeared that all of them were rejected. Is it because she was so depressed that she was always hit too hard by rejection? So she doubted herself. Blamed herself. The more she blamed herself, the more depressed she became and finally she entered a dead cycle?

However, due to memory loss, her mood changed a lot. Now, she was very calm in the face of rejection.

Lin Qingqing casually put aside the rejection and began to write again. After a while, the maid knocked on the door once more. The maid’s face was somewhat awkward, and she guessed that she was afraid of her because of her bad personality before. Hoping to appease her, she gently asked: "What's the matter?"

The maid smiled a little unnaturally: "The Madam from Qizhou is here."

Qizhou? That’s Yi Zeyan's hometown. The Madam of Qizhou was probably Yi Zeyan's mother.

The Yi family's winery was built in Qizhou, where the original head office was. But before long, Yi Zeyan moved the head office to Beicheng.

Lin Qingqing frowned subconsciously: "I see. I'll go down now."

She changed her clothes before going downstairs, where, upon arriving, she saw an old lady sitting in the living room. The lady was wearing a medium-sleeved suit jacket over a knee-length white dress. She looked to be in her fifties or sixties. But, because she was well maintained, she looked closer to be in her early forties and dressed less conservatively than the elderly. On the contrary, she had a kind of avant-garde that professional women possessed. 

She was very beautiful. Though wrinkled with age, her facial features were still outstanding. No wonder Yi Zeyan was so handsome! He inherited his looks from this beautiful mother!

Zhang Shuxi was sitting on the sofa drinking tea while eating snacks. At the sound of footsteps approaching, she looked up and frowned unwittingly when she saw Lin Qingqing.

Lin Qingqing suddenly had a bad feeling, and the smile on her face stiffened for a moment. She took a deep breath and came forward to greet her respectfully: "Hello, Auntie!"

Zhang Shuxi, however, looked at her as if she had been struck by lightning. But seeing that her expression was natural and that she was not deliberately mocking her, Zhang Shuxi paused for a long time before rubbing the goose bumps on her shoulders and saying: "What did you call me? Auntie?"

Lin Qingqing bit her lip, and suddenly realized that she is Yi Zeyan's wife now, so she should call her “Mother”. But she felt a little difficult to utter it.

However, it was not appropriate to call her mother-in-law,  “Auntie”.  So Lin Qingqing gritted her teeth and said: "I'm sorry, Mother, I was rude just now. Have you eaten yet? If you haven't eaten, I'll have Wen Sao cook for you."

Zhang Shuxi looked at her incredulously, her eyes were filled with slight fright, as if Lin Qingqing had really been evil:  "You......You... Just be normal! Don't call me mother! I feel nauseated. Just call me dead old woman. I'll feel more comfortable with it."

Lin Qingqing: "......"

Dead......Dead old woman......

Isn't it too impolite for a younger generation to call an elder a dead old woman?

Lin Qingqing suddenly found her past self really seeking death before.

Zhang Shuxi looked up and down at her in horror. She seemed to think of something and asked tentatively: "Did you really lose your memory?"

Lin Qingqing: "......" 

She didn’t dare to speak out.

For Zhang Shuxi, even if she guessed that Lin Qingqing might have lost her memory and her complexion wasn’t much better, the clever and submissive Lin Qingqing made her feel at a loss and, of course, more in panic.

However, she felt that showing her panic would make her lose her dignity as an elder, so she quickly returned to normal after a few seconds of watching Lin Qingqing with slight horror. She took a sip of tea, pretended to be calm, sneaked a look at her, and saw that she was still slightly hanging her head, standing there cleverly, as if waiting for her hair to fall.

It seemed that Cheng Yin was right. She did have amnesia and didn’t remember anything. However, she looked quite pleasing to the eye, and Zhang Shuxi was too lazy to embarrass her. After thinking about it, she took a card out of her bag and put it on the coffee table. Then she pushed it in the direction of Lin Qingqing and said: "I heard that you were not very well some time ago. There's some money in here. You can buy something to make up for it."

"Ah?" Lin Qingqing felt a bit stupid.

How did the plot progress a little unexpectedly?

Judging from what she just said, the relationship she had with her mother-in-law should not be very good. Why would she still give her money?

Lin Qingqing did not dare to accept the money. She hurriedly said: "How can I have the nerve to accept it?"

Zhang Shuxi said: "I'm your mother-in-law, you don't have to be so polite to me."

She had the same strong aura as Yi Zeyan, so Lin Qingqing didn't say much after. She nodded obediently, received the card and said: "Thank you, Mother."

Zhang Shuxi was very uncomfortable when she called her “Mother”. Hiding her discomfort, she sipped her tea and said: "You're welcome."

Just then someone opened the door. They looked over and saw the tall figure of Yi Zeyan by the entryway. His brows were drawn with anxiety and his face was etched with worry. However, when he saw that the situation in the room was not as bad as he thought, his face relaxed slightly.

He stepped forward and stood in front of Lin Qingqing, intentionally or unintentionally hiding her behind him. Then he asked Zhang Shuxi: "Why did you come here?"

Zhang Shuxi replied mockingly: "I just arrived when you came over. Why are you so protective of your wife? Are you afraid that I'll trouble her?"

Yi Zeyan did not answer, but turned to Lin Qingqing and said: "You go upstairs first."

Lin Qingqing was very considerate and left obediently. But, when she was halfway up the stairs, she heard Zhang Shuxi say: "Don't worry, I didn't come here to trouble your wife. I came here to ask you how you’re going to solve the problem at the winery."

Listening to Yi Zeyan's mother's worried tone, was there something wrong with the winery over there on Qizhou?

However, she didn’t hear Yi Zeyan's reply so she continued up the stairs. Nonetheless, there must be a big problem with the winery in Qizhou, otherwise… Otherwise, Yi Zeyan's mother would not personally visit.

Lin Qingqing returned to the room. A few moments later,  she heard a knock at the door. She opened it, saw Yi Zeyan and hurriedly asked: "That......your mother......"

"She has already left."

Lin Qingqing nodded and breathed a sigh of relief.

"I didn't seem very polite to your mother before. I don't know what happened, but I'm sorry if I was rude."

When Yi Zeyan heard this, he said without thinking: "You’re not rude to people for no reason. Don't feel bad."

Lin Qingqing: "......"

No matter what conflicts she and Zhang Shuxi had in the past, Zhang Shuxi was an elder after all. As a member of the younger generation, it was a bit too much to call the elder a dead old woman, not to mention the fact that she was still her mother-in-law.

Yi Zeyan's remark was obviously biased towards her.

In fact, she had many questions about why he was so kind to her. Even when facing the conflict between her and his own mother, he always took her side. But why did she hate him when he treated her so well?

Indeed, she had a lot of questions. Strangely, she didn’t seem to want to explore why this happened, and even unconsciously rejected knowing what happened in the past five years.

Yi Zeyan added: "There are still some things left to do in the company. I have to go back first."

Lin Qingqing came to her senses, quickly thought of what she had just heard, then said: "All right. You go ahead."

In the afternoon, the father and son were not back yet. Lin Qingqing thought that there was something wrong with the winery and was afraid Yi Zeyan might not be able to pick up their son because of a meeting. So she called Yi Zeyan.

"Qingqing?" A magnetic timbre mixed with uncertain questioning answered. 

His voice had the charm of a mature man, and the characteristics of his voice became more and more obvious when she was not face to face with him.

Lin Qingqing endured her nervousness and said: "Are you still busy?"

"I'm in a meeting."

Lin Qingqing replied hurriedly: "I'm sorry to disturb you. You should hold the meeting first."

"What's the matter?"

"It's nothing. I just want to pick up Xiao Yuan."

"The car keys are in the drawer in my room. You can drive any car you want, or I can just ask my assistant to pick up Xiao Yuan."

"I think it’s better if I pick him up."

He was probably really busy and said nothing more. Lin Qingqing hung up the phone and went to his room. Soon, she found the car keys, which were neatly arranged in the drawer. She was not very familiar with the car, but the common Mercedes-Benz and BMW were all available. She avoided those and picked up a car key whose logo looked less conspicuous.

When she got to the garage, she realized that the car was rather big, but she found that she could still drive it.

Lin Qingqing went to pick up her son first. When he got in the car, he asked her: "Hasn't Dad got off work yet?"

"Not yet."

"Then let's pick up Dad! Mom and I will pick up Dad together. He will be very happy."

"......"

Yicheng Group was very easy to find. Lin Qingqing just followed the navigation system installed in the car.

However, there was a bit of a traffic jam on their way over. She became worried that Yi Zeyan may have already left when they arrived. But Lin Qingqing grew up in Beicheng and was familiar with the area so she remembered that there was a path nearby to avoid the traffic.

However, the path was a bit narrow, with residential buildings flanking both sides. Lin Qingqing drove very carefully, but not carefully enough as she ended up scratching the rearview mirror on the other side.

She got out of the car and examined it. It was a very obvious scratch. Panicking, she exclaimed: "What should I do?" It was too late to repaint it. Plus, Yi Zeyan’s perfectly good car was driven by her like this. She was unsure whether he would be angry or not. 

"This car is not very valuable, is it?"

"Ehhhhhhh......"

When Lin Qingqing saw her son’s hesitation, she couldn't help worrying: "Is it very expensive?"

"I don't know whether it's expensive or not, but Dad seems to like this car very much. Last time Uncle Li Ji drove this car without paying attention and damaged the wiper a little, Dad beat him up."

"......" Lin Qingqing swallowed nervously and asked: "Who is Uncle Li Ji?"

"Daddy's comrade-in-arms ah! Daddy was a soldier before he went to college. He was good at shooting. You should let him show you later."

He beat up his Comrade-in-arms so hard? Lin Qingqing had a headache looking at the scratch.

"What should I do?"

Xiao Yuan scrunched his face up deep in concentration and thought of a way to help his mother. Suddenly, his eyes lit up and he said: "Mom, don't worry! I can help you."

"Ah, really?"

Lin Qingqing’s grief turned quickly into joy as she saw the little guy put down his small school bag and took out his crayon. Then he painted over the scratches on the rearview mirror with the crayon.

The scratch unexpectedly can't be seen after being painted over with the black crayon.

Lin Qingqing: "......"

The little guy asked for praise: "How is it, Mom?"

This idea was not very good, but it should be able to hide the scratch for the time being. Besides, Lin Qingqing could not bear to discourage him and gave him a thumbs-up sign: "My son is great!"

"Hee hee, mom is also great." The little guy was very happy to be praised.

Lin Qingqing: "......"

Yicheng Group was also in the Xinjian district, not very far from "Qingqing Studio". Although she had wondered about the general pattern of Yicheng Group, she did not expect such a grand building. The whole building was the office area of Yicheng Group in Beicheng and it was really luxurious.

Lin Qingqing knew that Yi Zeyan was busy, so she did not disturb him. She directly contacted his assistant Huo Yi who was also the driver of Yi Zeyan and whom she met previously. 

"Madam, Xiao Yuan, over here please. The president is in a meeting now. I'll take you to his office to wait for him."

To reach Yi Zeyan's office, they had to pass by the conference room. Surprisingly, the door of the conference room was not closed, and Lin Qingqing saw Yi Zeyan sitting at the front.

He was wearing a shirt and trousers, but his shirt sleeves were rolled up to his elbows and his hands were propped up on the edge of the table. With his arms exposed, he exuded a strong sense of strength.

He bowed his head and looked at the audience with a smile on his face. But his dignified and majestic aura was so strong that the atmosphere in the conference room became so heavy, no one dared to speak.

Suddenly, he slammed a document on the table and asked slowly: "Is this the market integration report you gave me?!" There was no hint of reproach in his voice and on the surface it seemed like it was only a simple inquiry. But each word he uttered was filled with a heavy feeling that hit people directly.

The audience did not even dare to breathe.

Lin Qingqing was only watching but even she was also almost knocked out of breath by his powerful aura.

Huo Yi still looked at her as usual and said: "Madam, this way please."

The president's office was very large. The floor was made out of glass so the lighting was sufficient. The decoration was very simple but still very modern. Many things found in the office were artificial intelligence systems such as air conditioning, air humidifier, and even the curtains.

Lin Qingqing sat down in the office and was a little worried. Yi Zeyan was obviously in a bad mood today. If he knew that his car had been wrecked by her, he would probably kill her. 

After the meeting, Yi Zeyan was in no hurry to come out. He sat at the front and pressed his temple with his hands. Huo Yi came up to him carefully and said: "President, Madam and Xiao Yuan are here."

"En?" Yi Zeyan did not seem to have heard properly. "Who did you just say was here?"

"Madam and Xiao Yuan, they are here to pick you up from work......"

Yi Zeyan went out without waiting for him to finish and pushed open the office door. Inside, he saw the mother and child playing flight chess (T/N: similar to ludo game). All of a sudden, the two of them filled the once empty and deserted room with a pleasant and sweet feeling.

The mother and son heard voices and turned their heads. Lin Qingqing saw Yi Zeyan standing by the door. He was smiling at them and he was not as dignified and powerful as he had just been at the meeting.

"Is it time to get off work already?" Lin Qingqing asked him.

Only then did he come to his senses. He brought his half-clenched fist to his lips, gently coughed, and said: "It's time to get off work."

"If you already got off work then let's go back."

Yi Zeyan was somewhat surprised: "Are you here to pick me up?"

Lin Qingqing nodded. Since she damaged his car, she felt a little nervous as she faced Yi Zeyan. She averted her eyes from his face and naturally didn't notice the excitement that flashed across his eyes.

Lin Qingqing and Xiao Yuan put away the flight chess and came to the underground parking garage with Yi Zeyan. She was restless all the way and didn't summon up enough courage to tell him until she stood by the car: "That...... I didn't pay attention and scraped the rearview mirror of the car when I drove here. I scratched the stripe on it. Xiao Yuan was afraid you would be angry, so he helped me paint over it with a crayon." She went over to wipe off the crayon to reveal the scratch. "I'm sorry."

She hung her head and did not dare to look at him, nor did she know his expression. She didn't want her child to think her mother was dishonest, so she decided to tell him the truth.

However, she heard Yi Zeyan say: "I know, get in the car."

His tone was very natural. Lin Qingqing looked up at him, but saw that his expression was also very natural, as if he had only heard a trivial matter.

He had opened the front door for her, and she sat in muddle-headed.

"Aren't......Aren't you angry?"

Yi Zeyan said: "Why would I be angry? It's just a car. It's nothing compared to you, mother and son." He really didn't take it to heart since he said it so lightly.

Lin Qingqing: "......"

But last time his comrade-in-arms broke the wiper, didn't he beat him up?

Lin Qingqing felt that her heart was suddenly filled with a feeling of being spoiled.
She looked at the man and shook her head in a hurry. She really shouldn’t dare to feel or think that way.

After going home for dinner, Xiao Yuan wanted to watch cartoons. Lin Qingqing suggested that he watch it with her.  Today, Yi Zeyan still did not go back to his study. But he was busy. When the mother and son were watching cartoons, he took a book to read. The book was in English, with <Survey of Economics> printed on its cover.

At 10 o'clock, he warned: "It's time to go to bed."

Lin Qingqing naturally knew the little guy's regular work and rest time pattern. She said: "If we can't finish it, shall we watch it tomorrow?"

However, the child Yi Beiyuan was obviously not satisfied. He thought for a moment with a small frown. Then his eyes suddenly brightened. He said: "Why don't we go to Dad's room to watch? Dad has a TV in his room, and I can sit on the bed and watch it for a while before I can fall asleep. Besides, it takes me awhile to fall asleep in bed now."

Go...... Go to Yi Zeyan's room?

When Yi Beiyuan saw his mother didn't speak for a long time, he turned to his father and said: "Dad, how about we let Mom accompany me in your room to watch? It's only a little bit before it finishes."

His father didn't raise his head, but he readily agreed: "En, go ahead."

Yi Beiyuan was very happy and rushed to Lin Qingqing with a face of excitement: "Mom! Dad agreed! Will you go with me?"

Lin Qingqing didn’t  immediately agree and thought for a moment. It seemed that it would be okay to go to Yi Zeyan's room to watch a movie.

But the little child Yi Beiyuan was worried that his mother wouldn’t agree with him. When he saw his mother hesitating, he said: "Didn’t Mom say yesterday that she likes Dad? Would Mom like to go to Dad's room with me?"

When Yi Zeyan heard this, his body stiffened for a second before he suddenly fixed his eyes on her. However, the corners of his mouth slowly curved and he asked softly: "You like me?"

Lin Qingqing: "......"

Editor’s note: This family dynamic reminds me so much of Bai Qian, Ah Li and Ye Hua from Ten Miles of Peach Blossom lol. Xiao Yuan is as mischievous as Ah Li, Lin Qingqing is as clueless as Bai Qian and Yi Zeyan is as hopelessly in love with his wife as Ye Hua. xD
