“Then, on usual days, I’ll stay there to take care of him, but this means that I won’t be able to take care of you that much anymore! I hope that you can understand your dad! After all, with your grandmother gone now, and your uncle paralyzed from the waist down, his condition is rather serious, so I hope to be able to take good care of him…”
“Dad, what are you saying?”
Unsure whether to laugh or cry, she expressed, “If you rent a house using five thousand yuan from your salary, how much will you have left for your expenses?”
“This…” It was not that he had not thought of this problem.
He was extremely vexed.
He did consider asking her for financial help, but he felt too guilty to do so.
This was when he heard her continue. “How about this? The house we are currently living has three levels. If uncle doesn’t mind, we can arrange for him to stay on the third floor. Still, I’m afraid that my little guys can cause quite a din during the day, and that might affect his recuperation! If you’re worried about that, too, I can pull some contacts and find a small bungalow near us as the environment around here is more refined and secluded! This way, I can visit him easily since I’m nearby! Dad, your body isn’t well, either. You shouldn’t be out working anymore. You should stay at home and accompany uncle. I’ll hire a care worker to tend to him regularly. Who knows? If he’s well taken care of, there may be hope of recovery! Don’t you think so as well?”
“T-That won’t do! You’re already working so hard, and you still have to care for your children. You have your hands full already to do that as well.” He did not want her to go through so much trouble, rushing all over the place for the emotional debt he owed.
If that were the case, he would rather think of a solution himself.
“Dad, do you have to regard me as an outsider? It isn’t a big issue! Now, I have the capability as I am earning a lot from my job. Our lives are no longer how they were in the past where we couldn’t even make ends meet! It’s about time for me to be filial to you properly! You’ve taken care of me for so many years. This is something you deserve, so please, dad, don’t say such things. I know you’re just trying to be considerate, but it makes me feel bad to hear you say such words!”
The man was stunned. Suddenly, there was a choking sound filled with emotion from the other end.
She did not notice it, though, as she continued speaking. “Dad, you’ve been in the city for so many years, whereas uncle has been in your hometown, taking care of grandmother, all this while. He also did such heavy work at the construction site for so long and went through so much hardship. Plus, when our family was in a predicament, uncle always thought about us no matter what he did! Taking care of him is the responsibility of the younger generation, isn’t it?”
“Shishi, I’m very touched that you think that way, but you shouldn’t take on everything by yourself! How about this: I’ll bring uncle and his family over, but we go with what I planned earlier. We’ll rent a small house to let your uncle recuperate in peace, and we can discuss the rest later!”
“Dad, this… isn’t very appropriate!” She sighed.
“Ah, Shishi, listen to me. Dad has a reason for arranging it this way.”
“What’s the reason?”
He stumbled at the mention of this, refusing to share and only saying that he did not want to burden her.
Under her repeated questioning, he finally gave in and told her the truth.
It was because his younger brother’s wife was not virtuous and was hard to deal with! When he said that he wanted to bring Yun Yehou to the city for recuperation, she insisted in coming along as well.
