Chapter 271 Mommy, Don‘t Leave Me Alone
Joey lowered his head and pressed his lips into a straight line. After a while, he said in a low voice, “Mommy, I can’t leave now.” Rachel didn’t say anything. “Mommy…” Seeing that she didn’t say anything, Joey thought she was going to be angry. His heart beat fast. He looked up at her uneasily and said, “Mommy, I’m sorry. I… Can I go back a few days later?”
“Why?” Rachel didn’t say anything more and asked calmly. In fact, at the moment she asked, she had a vague guess. Her eyes fell on the dried blood on Joey’s clothes. Joey lowered his head and linked the fingers of his hands together on his stomach, staring at his toes without answering her.
“Joe, you…” Seeing his reaction, Rachel was almost sure. She squatted down and looked at him. After a short hesitation, she asked what she wanted to know most, “Do you want to stay with him?” The two of them knew clearly who ‘he’ was referring to. Joey shook his head in a hurry and said, “Mommy, don’t get me wrong. I didn’t mean that. I just… I just…” Seeing the sweat on his forehead, Rachel couldn’t bear to see him be like that.
She lifted the corner of her mouth and raised her head to wipe the sweat off his forehead gently, “Don’t worry. Take your time.” “Mommy…” Joey’s eyes suddenly turned red, and his big tears rolled down his cheeks all of a sudden, “I just want to stay here for a few days. He was injured, and he got shot because of protecting me.” ‘Got shot.’ The two words hit Rachel’s eardrum hard.
“If I leave now, I will definitely feel uneasy.” Joey continued, “Mommy, you’ve told me to be grateful and return others’ kindness. I know he’s a bad and annoying man. But if he didn’t want to protect me, he could have avoided it. At least he’s not bad in this matter. In that case, I can’t leave.”
Hearing what Joey said that he even quoted what she had said, she didn’t know what to say for a moment. Could she say that he did a good job? But the man inside the room was none other than Victor. As long as Joey stayed with him for a little longer, it would increase the risk of his identity being exposed. Rachel didn’t want to think about the consequence of being discovered, nor did she dare to think about it.
But could she say that he was wrong? Could she take him away from here by force? If she really did so, this matter would traumatize Joey. She knew her son very well that as long as he was determined to do something, no one could persuade him, just like his scummy father. Rachel looked at Joey with deep eyes, “Are you going to stay here no matter what I say?”
“……” Upon hearing this, Joey looked at her without saying anything. Even if he didn’t say it, the answer was self-evident. Rachel narrowed her eyes and withdrew her hand. Without saying anything, she stood up and made up her mind quickly. Then she said, “Okay, I agree.” He had thought that Rachel would refuse his request, but he didn’t expect her to be so straightforward, which made Joey stunned for a moment.
Soon a guess flashed through his mind, and the red color on the corners of his eyes which had just faded a little, became obvious again. “Mommy, are… are you going to leave me alone?” As soon as he finished his words, Joey burst into tears again and he wept more bitterly than before.
Rachel didn’t expect that Joey would think so. She was stunned for a moment, but before she could explain, Joey suddenly rushed over and hugged her, saying anxiously. “Mommy, I’ll go with you. I won’t stay here. Don’t leave me alone… I’ll listen to you and go with you. I don’t want Daddy, but Mommy.” “Joe?”
Rachel reached out her hand and wanted to pull his hand, trying to explain. However, when Joey noticed her movement, he held her even tighter. “Let go of me, Joe.” Rachel couldn’t free herself from it or move. She felt both sorry and helpless. “…… Mommy.” Joe raised his head and looked at her miserably with red eyes. Seeing him like this, Rachel didn’t want to say anything more, so she had to slow down her tone and said, “Let go of me first.
I can’t talk to you in this way.” “Mommy, promise me first. Don’t leave me alone.” “Who said I don’t want you?” Rachel couldn’t help laughing. Joey blinked his tearful eyes. Rachel flicked his forehead slightly with her index finger and said, “I had a devil of a job giving birth to you. Why could I abandon you?”
“But weren’t you…” She said that just now so clearly and calmly as if she was going to leave him here and never come back “I’ll give you three seconds. Let go of me.” Rachel looked down at him. She couldn’t move in such a posture, and it was also a little difficult for her to speak, “Three, two…” Joey immediately loosened his grip and took a step back, but his eyes were still fixed on her.
Rachel took a piece of tissue from the table and wiped his tears, “Joe, you still remember the principle of gratitude and return clearly. But why couldn’t you remember that it is unmanly to cry?” “Mommy…” Rachel threw the tissue into the trash can and sighed helplessly, “I won’t leave, but I won’t leave you alone here.”
“What do you mean?” Looking at him, Rachel raised her hand, gently stroked his eyebrows and eyes with her thumb, and then put on the mask again, “Let’s go, take me in.” After saying that, she looked at the bedroom door which was ajar.
