Mu Yazhe raised his gaze as the doctor continued. “Please begin preparing the funeral arrangements. He only has about a month left. If he receives the utmost service and care, he may be able to live a little longer!”
He was not surprised by the results. He already knew deep down that Mu Sheng’s body was at its worst state, struggling at death’s door. He was living each day as if it were his last.
Hearing these words, Yun Shishi was astonished. She did not know that the old man’s condition was so bad to the point that they needed to start thinking about funeral arrangements.
She walked confusedly into the hospital ward and sat by the hospital bed. As she gazed at the unconscious and sickly elderly figure, her heart suddenly felt a little heavy!
A nurse walked inside out of nowhere, holding something carefully in her hands. Noticing her, she walked over.
“Hello, the patient dropped this in the operating room. Please safeguard it for him!”
She lifted her hand in a daze. The nurse then placed a piece of jade in it.
A spark set off in her eyes as they widened alarmingly.
“This has to be a very personal possession to the patient! When he was sent into the operating room, he refused to unclench his fist! It took me a lot of effort before I could pry open his hand, only to find this jade in it! This jade must be extremely important to him!”
When she was done speaking, the nurse smiled and left the ward.
Yun Shishi held the jade in her hand as she carefully pressed it, causing it to scatter into two halves.
She picked up one of the pieces carefully and examined it. Her heart stopped for a moment!
This… This was her mother’s memento! This was the jade that she had kept by her side!
She never knew that it was actually a piece from a pair of jade.
The two pieces of jade were a pair, forming an elliptic jade plate. When separated in the middle, each piece of the jade was in the shape of a crescent moon. It was carved exquisitely with a beautiful, decorative design, and the middle was inlaid with gold. One could tell that it had been through the test of time. Judging from its appearance, it had been through some changes but the quality was still superb!
She did not know much about jade when she was young. She only knew that her mother always carried this piece of jade everywhere she went, never leaving it behind.
This piece of jade had been separated from her for many years. At this moment, it had finally returned to its rightful owner. She could not help but be distracted.
This piece of jade was a perfect match when placed together with the other piece.
Had he always been carrying this jade around with him?
Even when he fainted, he still held it tightly in his hand and refused to let it go.
Was he that fixated with it?!
She heard that Mu Sheng had loved and doted on Mu Qingcheng to the bones. It seemed that this was not fake even now.
He even sacrificed his respectable air to be petty and low in front of her, begging for her forgiveness. This showed how important her mother was to him!
Thinking about it, he knew deep down that he did not have much time left. Perhaps he was still holding on to his fixation and did not wish to leave this world with regrets!
She furrowed her brows, her eyes filling with sentiments and complexities.
Little Yichen walked to the hospital ward’s entrance, only to see his mother sitting with an unchanging posture of her head lowered toward his great grandpa.
Suddenly, he felt an unpleasant feeling in his heart. He walked behind her and gently hugged her shoulders as he said, “Mommy…”
She turned her head and saw the boy. Her eyes could not help but be filled with reproach. “Why did you leave your bed?”
