Chapter 975: She Is Not Our Child
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
"He Lan Yuan's scheme wouldn't have caused the apocalypse—he was never the real threat—the real threat comes from someone else."
"Who?" Sam's group asked in shock.
Xia Wa shook her head. "I have no idea who he is, but he is a manifestation of human darkness. He wants for nothing but the world's destruction."
"F*ck!" Sam cursed. "How can there be such a demented person in the world? I also don't ask for anything except his spontaneous combustion."
"Madam, how are you going to stop him?" Ali asked in a worry.
"I cannot tell that you, but you will find out in the future."
Even though she did not go into detail, they were glad she had a solution. With that, Sam's group had a new person to admire: Xia Wa. The more time they spent with her, the more attracted they were to her presence. They had to admit that she was indeed Xinghe's mother because she was the embodiment of wisdom. Her wisdom was not forced; she radiated it naturally, just like the sea, land, and sky. She did not have to prove herself, but by simply standing there, one would be impressed by her.
That was probably the highest stage of wisdom, the ability to elicit admiration from others without an ounce of envy. In this world, probably no one would doubt her wisdom.
Similarly, Xinghe adored her mother. Therefore, she had no thoughts regarding what she wanted to do.
After returning to Hwa Xia, Xia Wa finally reunited with the Shen family. Elder Shen and the rest of the family had been waiting for them for a long time. They were excited to finally reunite with Xia Wa, but they had difficulties treating her as their daughter.
They could not help to talk to her in a respectful tone. This was not something Xia Wa demanded, but it was something she naturally commanded. The way Elder Shen and Old Madam Shen conversed with her was like conversing with a learned person, and it was not the conversation between parents and their long lost daughter.
Elder Shen had privately led Xinghe away to lament this. He said, "There is a saying in the world that our children are never ours. They are merely using our body to come into this world. I didn't understand this saying, but now I do. She is not our daughter; she is merely using us as an in-between to come into this world."
Xinghe felt the same way. She did not feel like this was her mummy; she was more like her creator.
However, these feelings did not take away from the trust and love they had for her. If anything, Xia Wa's presence attracted their attention like a sun; they subconsciously wanted to get close to her. However, the sun's rays were blinding, and not anyone could get close to it. Therefore, they could only admire her from afar.
Xinghe was like her warmest ray of light and was approachable, and that was probably the biggest difference between the mother and daughter. Xia Wa was like a superhuman presence while Xinghe was still part of reality.
Even Lin Lin, who personally met Xia Wa in private, came to the same conclusion. The little fella told Xinghe in confidence, "Mummy, Grandma is someone incredible, but I still do not want you to become like her or else I will feel compelled to kneel before you every time we meet." 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
