Chapter 28 Hiding A Devastating Truth...
When Ming Shihong and Ming Yusheng left the dining table, tears started to roll down from Ming Jie’s eyes. She picked up the invitation card on the dining table, looked in the direction of the door through which her father-in-law and husband left and said, "I can never ever forget the truth even if I try to forget it thousand times because nobody knows the truth but me. If both of you ever come to know about it, I....I am afraid that you won’t be able to handle it." And she started to cry just like that, sitting in the chair.
"Madam!! Don’t cry" It was Nanny Yun. She saw everything happened in the dining room and came to Ming Jie to consol her. Nanny Yun was very old. She served Ming family since she was young and she was close to Ming Jie. Other than Ming Jie, she was the only one to know the truth of what happened in the past which caused the death of Ming Fangsu.
"Nanny Yun, What should I do? I am living with a huge burden on my chest because of that truth. I did that to protect him and I couldn’t break the promise I made to Ming Fangsu just before she died. If it wasn’t for him, Ming Fangsu would be with us today. Why did he do that?" She said it and started to cry even more.
Nanny Yun hold her hand and said, "You did well. Elder master and young master should never know the truth otherwise nobody knows what will happen."
"I know!! I know, but I am afraid that Lord Buddha will never forgive me for my sin to make those two best friends apart by hiding the truth from them and I am afraid that in the future I will have to pay the price for that." She said while crying, feeling guilty and scared.
"Nothing will happen. It was Ming Fangsu’s last wish to hide the truth so don’t blame yourself. It was necessary to protect this family from getting scattered." She said patting the head of crying Ming Jie like a mother.
"Every moment, I feel like living in a hell whenever I remember about Ming Fangsu. She was like my little sister and was unable to seek justice for her because of my selfishness. And !! And why did she made me do that promise? That promise is just an excuse to stop myself from revealing the truth. I am not sure if I can take it anymore. I won’t be able to die in peace with that burden." She said while holding nanny Yun’s hand and started to cry her heart out.
Ming Fangsu was only daughter of Ming Shihong. 28 yrs ago on the next day of Lu Jinhai and Lu Jiahui’s marriage, she commited suicide.
Elder Lu Huan and elder Ming Shihong were best buddies in the past that they could do anything for each other. They were more like a real brothers than friends. When Lu Jinhai came to the capital to fullfill his dreams, Ming Shihong supported him with all his might as Ming Shihong was already a very successful business man with a successfully established company. He treated Lu Jinhai as his own son and guided him in his path of success. Lu Jinhai even stayed at his home untill he arranged the place for himself to stay in the unknown city.
During Lu Jinhai’s stay at elder Ming Shihong’s residence, he became a very good freind with his son Ming Yusheng and his daughter Ming Fangsu. Ming Yusheng was few years older to Lu Jinhai but they were like a buddies and shared everything with each other. Lu Jinhai treated Ming Fangsu as his younger sister just like Ming Yusheng did. But Ming Fangsu started to think of him as a man. When everyone at home realised that, they were happy because everyone liked Lu Jinhai.
When Ming Fangsu confessed her feelings to Lu Jinhai, he told her that he always considered her as his younger sister and also he already had someone he loves and will get married to her soon. She was heart broken but she understood Lu Jinhai. She was a very beautiful girl not just by her appearance but also by heart. She was hurt but also happy for Lu Jinhai. After knowing this, all members in her family felt sad for her but she told them that she was fine and the matter of the heart can’t be forced.
At the day of Lu Jinhai’s wedding, whole Ming family was present for the wedding. Elder Ming Shihong was as happy as elder Lu Huan like it was his own son’s marriage. During the marriage Lu Fangsu was quite hurt to see the person she loved was getting married to someone else but she didn’t show it on her face and was happy for Lu Jinhai and his newly wedded wife. Ming Fangsu returned home early as she was not feeling well and was not able to hold her hurt feelings anymore so she excused herself from wedding.
Everything was good untill next morning. When Ming Shihong saw that Ming Fangsu was not present for breakfasts at the dining table, he asked servant to call her. When the servant knocked on the door there was no reply so she entered the room but Ming Fangsu was not there. Servant thought she might be in a bathroom so she went to the bathroom and was about to knock the door, she saw that it was slightly open. But she still knocked the door and called for Ming Fangsu. After getting no reply she pushed the door open slowly because the tap in the bathroom was on and she could heard the sound of overflowing water.
When she entered inside, she saw Ming Fangsu in bath tub with a water in a red colour. She got scared and screamed. But she still called her name while crying but there was no response. After looking at Ming Fangsu she somewhat guessed what had happened and ran outside to inform everyone
