But she had never regarded Wei Wei as her elder brother. Similarly, Wei Wei had never had the self-awareness to act as an elder brother.
Qiao Nan rubbed her temple, trying to ease her headache. So Wei Wei did exist. “His mom… Where are they staying?” If everything was true, then Wei Wei was probably Wei De’s son, not his nephew.
Wei De would definitely have kept his son close to himself. But in order to prevent others from finding out about the truth, had Wei De left his ex-wife back in the village?
Jiajia was in distress. Why did Auntie Qiao know all about her family? Jiajia felt rather uneasy because a stranger whom she had met for the first time today knew about the mess in her family like the back of her hand. It was as though she had been stripped off all her clothes in broad daylight. “Wei Wei lives with his mom and my grandma. I live with my mom.”
“What? Wei De brought his younger sister along?” Wei De was too daring!
Since she had already said it, it was much more natural for Jiajia to continue. “I heard from my mom that my aunt had been cheated on when she was younger and had gotten pregnant with Wei Wei. Initially, my dad felt sorry for Wei Wei because he’s a fatherless child. Since there wasn’t much opportunity for any development in the countryside, he moved Wei Wei over to live with us. Not long after that, I was born. After that, my grandparents moved from the countryside to Ping Cheng. Initially, my aunt lived in the countryside alone, but my dad thought that it was too pitiful for her to live in the countryside alone. Besides, everyone makes mistakes when they’re young. We can’t exclude her and ostracize her because of a mistake. We have to give her a chance.”
In other words, Wei De had left Wei Xiaomei alone in the countryside for a period of time. But after a period of observation, he realized that no one had any suspicions about Wei Wei and thus decided to bring the child’s mom over as well?
Qiao Nan could completely understand why Wei Wei lived with Mother Wei, while Jiajia lived separately with Zhai Hua. With a son like Wei De, Qiao Nan was sure that there was another hypocrite in the Wei family.
If there had not been someone as shameless as Wei De in the Wei family, the fact that Wei Wei was Wei De’s son would have been exposed long ago. Someone in the Wei family must have arranged everything for Wei De and hidden the truth of Wei Wei’s origins. Qiao Nan guessed that this person was probably Wei Wei’s mom.
Jiajia’s words matched up with Qiao Nan’s dream. Not only did Wei De have a ‘sister’, but she had almost committed a blunder in her youth and had given birth to her son, Wei Wei, out of wedlock. “Jiajia, if you mind, you can choose not to answer me and treat it as though you’ve never heard me. Of course, if you’re willing, can you tell me if you feel that your dad treats you better, or whether he treats Wei Wei better?”
“Auntie Qiao, did grandma ask you to ask me about this?” Her grandma probably felt that she had suffered too much and wanted Auntie Qiao to ask her about it. Wei Jiajia sniffled as her emotions reached their brim.
She wanted to be a good daughter. She knew that her grandma’s family held a grudge against her father and did not accept her father. At such a time, she should speak well of her father so that her grandma’s family would change their opinion toward him. It was just that she did not want to do so. She wanted to speak the truth because that was indeed how her father treated her.
“I’ll be straightforward. Your grandma wants to know about it, but she doesn’t dare to ask you about it. She’s afraid that she won’t be able to handle your answer. She’s worried that she had not been rational enough at that time and had not been stubborn enough in trying to stop your mom’s marriage. She’s also afraid that you might misunderstand this attitude as her disliking you and not wanting you to be born.”
Even if she had not asked Miao Jing about it, Qiao Nan could still understand the concerns of her mother-in-law from her dream.
Hearing this, Wei Jiajia began sobbing uncontrollably. Her paternal grandma disliked her, and as such, her paternal grandma would always say mean things in her face. She never worried about whether she would hurt Jiajia. On the other hand, her maternal grandma cared deeply for her. It was out of her own concern about whether Jiajia would get hurt that her grandma had chosen to suppress her curiosity.
It was true that worry stemmed from love, and fear stemmed from worry.
Qiao Nan handed the young lady a piece of tissue paper, questioning herself if her question had been too heartless. Actually, if she really wanted to know about it, she did not have to ask Wei Jiajia. She could have found out about the situation from others as well. It was just that the answer would be more direct and accurate if she heard it from Wei Jiajia’s mouth.
After crying for a while, Wei Jiajia finally stopped and said, “Auntie Qiao, I’ll take this room. Shall we go in and have a chat?” It was just as well. She needed to pour out all her grievances.
She had never dared to mention her sufferings at her paternal grandma’s house to her mom because she was clear of her mom’s temper. If she were to say anything, her mom would definitely get into a fight with her paternal grandma’s family. Her mom might have a hot temper, but her grandma was the best at creating trouble in the family. Her dad was always on her grandma’s side, and if her mom got into an argument with her grandma, her dad would always scold her mom. More than once, he had lectured her so harshly that she had teared up.
As time went by, Wei Jiajia simply made it a habit to suck up all these grievances. She had already been wronged anyway. There was no point in letting her mom suffer with her. Besides, this was no big deal. It would pass as long as she endured it for a while.
“My aunt gave birth to Wei Wei, and because Wei Wei is fatherless, my dad eventually decided to name the child Wei Wei and that he would be a child of the Wei family. He even registered Wei Wei under the Wei family’s household. My grandpa is pretty all right, but my grandma favors boys. She always calls Wei Wei her eldest grandson and doesn’t care about me at all. My dad… He keeps saying that Wei Wei doesn’t have a father and only has an uncle and that I’m much more fortunate than he is. As Wei Wei’s only uncle, if he doesn’t treat Wei Wei well, no one else would. I’m different because I have a father and a mother, so I shouldn’t argue with Wei Wei. But what rights does he have? He’s only Wei Wei’s uncle, but he’s my dad!”
“So what if I have a dad? My own father treats someone else’s child better than he treats me! My own dad can’t even compare to Wei Wei’s uncle!”
This young lady had a lot of pent-up anger, but she had never expressed it in the past because of her maturity. With Qiao Nan, Wei Jiajia felt like pouring out all of her grievances. She complained to Qiao Nan as she wept. Her tears fell even more freely now as though it was raining.
Looking at how badly this young lady was crying, Qiao Nan was sure that this young lady had been cruelly bullied in the Wei family.
“You have an uncle too, and your uncle is definitely better than Wei Wei’s uncle.”
