Rosa was quiet. She doesn't know what happened to herself. She found Theresa in a pathetic condition and considering how she said she would have preferred that a car crash and she died rather than living.
She brought her home but didn't know what made her so sad and unhappy. She glanced at Theresa and the latter locked eyes with each other.
Theresa bowed her head and her tears came afresh. Rosa's mother was surprised, she was still sobbing after a few days had passed from when she experienced the incident.
She regretted asking. She should have waited some days more before asking. She doesn't want to make her feel hurt.
"You don't have to say anything to Theresa if you don't want to. I'm sorry to have asked you in the first place"Rosa's mother coaxed and had given up on hearing Theresa Mo's story when the latter sniffled and smiled faintly.
She told them all that befell her and how she ended up in the hospital and finally signing the papers. When Rosa and her mother heard her story, they shook their heads.
Rosa even she'd a few tears to her friend's pathetic story. How can someone be so cruel to another person's Daughter simply because she was her husband's Daughter and not hers.
"How was it my fault that my parents had me out of wedlock? Or how am I to be blamed for my parents inability to suppress their sexual desires for each other?
I am bearing the brunt of her affairs and such a malicious conspiracy to throw me out shamefully. If this had happened when my dad was alive, I would have been able to find my feet and not have allowed myself to be ridden by a strange man.." Theresa Mo explained.
Rosa and her mother were quiet to all Theresa Mo said. She had definitely suffered and had been abused. Her arranged marriage ended so shamefully to pave the way to her step sister. It's a cruel world.
Where would she have gone if she hadn't bumped into her that day? No wonder she said she has no home. She was right in her statement.
"We are not that rich like where you are coming from but be rest assured that you will find a family with us. Stay here as much as you want and find your feet again.
You have to be strong and live your life not for anyone now but yourself. The best is yet to come my dear. Please don't put their evilness to heart"Rosa's mother coaxed.
That way Theresa lived with Rosa and her family for a month and a half.
Lu Jingli sent men everywhere to find Theresa. He wants to compensate her for what happened. He didn't hate her or intend to do such wickedness to her but he was only following the manuscript.
He was acting according to the script. Just to offer her something to make her find a source of livelihood.
But he searched everywhere and found no trace of Theresa Mo. His men couldn't find her either and he was worried about her.
Had she done anything harmful to herself or was she out of the city? He became moody for days.
Tiana began to observe him. What is wrong with her husband? This is not his usual mode. Why was he looking so worried?
What is wrong with him? Was he missing Theresa? No that can't be it. He doesn't like her a bit and they had never gotten intimate with each other.
While he was still in his feigned marriage with her sister, she was already having sex with Lu Jingli. Everywhere and everywhere, they got entangled and wouldn't let go of each other except they had done it to their fill.
While they were doing this, Theresa Mo was still thinking herself to be Lu Jingli's wife. She was his wife by name but he was her soul and body.
She decided to ask Lu Jingli what was happening to him and the latter said he was worried because the company sent out some proposals to clients and he hadn't heard any feedback from any of the clients. He lied.
Tiana Mo sighed softly. That must be it. She knew it can't be because of Theresa. She told him that everything is going to be alright.
They would send a reminder to those clients and see if they would reply again. Lu Jingli smiled and said he was confident in her abilities. She's so intelligent.
Rosa was able to get a job for Theresa Mo in her company. She was to resume on the Monday of the following week and pick up her appointment.
But Theresa observed she's late that month for her period. It has been two weeks already that she's supposed to see her monthly friend and there seems to be a delay.
She had sleepless nights ruminating over it and was afraid of it being what she suspected. When the whole thing happened, she was too moody minded to think of contraceptives.
If Lu Jingli and Tiana Mo had paid a hooker to take her, wouldn't they have advised that he should use a condom at least?
Weren't they afraid that hookers might be carriers of STD and they do not care about her safety as well?
When Rosa went to work, she decided to sneak out. She went to a nearby hospital and asked to run a pregnancy test for her.
The waiting period from the time her sample was collected to the time the result would be out was the longest time Theresa had waited for anything in her life.
Why was it taking so long to run a pregnancy test? Are these people competent at all? Theresa Mo questioned quietly.
When the doctor finally invited her over to his office, he gave her the report and Theresa's hand was shaking.
Wasn't she complaining a while ago that it was taking them too long to present her the result? Now she has the result and her hands are shivering.
The doctor glanced at her. Women who suddenly sweat under the air conditioner when they offer a pregnancy test results are those who got pregnant illegitimately.
"What's written inside the report, doctor?" Theresa Mo asked.
The doctor glared at her and was amused. She asked him what is written in the result? "Ms Mo, you can check it out" the doctor replied politely.Theresa fearfully tore it open and glanced at it. Her hand shivered. That was when Theresa knew she'd been sweating. Her blouse was soaking in sweat as she held the result in her hand.Her tears ran down her cheeks. This is what she has been afraid of. The reality stares at her in the face." You are six weeks pregnant ma'am" the doctor stated. He stared at her and knew she wasn't ready for the pregnancy.Rather than Theresa answering or saying something, she closed her eyes momentarily and her tears ran down her beautiful face. What does Theresa Mo mean by her actions and the message she sent. Why would she think so unhealthy about them?Rosa's mother became sobered. Has she done something that makes Theresa feel uncomfortable? Or had she said anything that made her feel unwelcome?For the rest of that day, Rosa, her mother and brother were unhappy.

TOO LATE TO RETURN Four years Later
What does Theresa Mo mean by her actions and the message she sent. Why would she think so unhealthy about them?Rosa's mother became sobered. Has she done something that makes Theresa feel uncomfortable? Or had she said anything that made her feel unwelcome?For the rest of that day, Rosa, her mother and brother were unhappy. They never expected that things would end this way or that Theresa would one day leave them without a genuine reason for doing that.Four years laterTheresa Mo walked out of the airport in a blue suit and pants.

Rosa's mother knew Theresa was going to tell them things after the kids fell asleep. She was not surprised when she saw Rosa and Theresa walk out hand in hand.Theresa sat down and Rosa opposite her. Rosa's brother Hong had gone out for a computer game with his friends."I'll never stop thanking you Aunt and Rosa for being my support in the darkest hour of my life. I never thought there would be a time that I will experience such thick darkness in my life like I had four years ago.I discovered I was pregnant when I went to the hospital to check up. I didn't know what to do at the time. I don't have money,no job and I don't know the one who got me pregnant.But the doctor who attended to me took it upon himself
Lu Jingli was unhappy. They've been married for four years and he has not stopped giving her his body just to see her pregnant. But he can no longer continue and needed to rest a while."Why have you been ignoring me? We need to be intimate more at this period when we need a child"Tiana Mo coaxed.This shouldn't be the time Lu Jingli be estranged from her especially now that she needed him the most."Are you going to force me if I choose to ignore you? I want to sleep and I don't like being disturbed"Lu Jingli snapped at her.If she keeps pestering him, he would leave the room and never return that night. What's the use of wasting his manliness on a woman who has nothing to show for it
Lu Jingli was shocked and his hands shivered. This is his ex wife Theresa Mo. She looked happy with her friends. She was dishing her meal into her mouth with the chopsticks so that she didn't notice that some people were staring at her.The waiter came and took Lu Jingli's order and his mother. But the latter became muddle headed after seeing Theresa Mo.He had tried finding her and locating her for many months until he finally gave up. He concluded she had done something to hurt herself or left the country.But where was she going to get the money to take a flight out of the country. She was left without a penny and not allowed to take a needle out of the house.But seeing her now, she looked gorgeous and beau
Lu Jingli didn't answer his mother in another word. He started the ignition and zoomed off. He dropped his mother off before returning to the company.All those comments about him and his mother a while ago resurfaced in his memory. It was all Tiana's fault.If she hadn't gone to report him to his mother, he wouldn't have had to meet his mother for lunch in that restaurant and he wouldn't have seen Theresa Mo as well.He can't stop thinking about Theresa Mo at the moment. That woman has become more beautiful and matured. She carried that special attractiveness that he had never seen in her.Was she married already? Had she been out of the country? He wants to see her again and get things strai
Next day, Theresa Mo got her kids dressed up and ready for school. It's going to be their first day in school and her first day in Office.She looked at the boy's and they looked great in their school uniforms. They're three years and a half years old but have the brain and smartness of a ten year old."Are you going to accompany us to school?"Lee Mo asked. He was going to kindergarten in his former school until his mother told him and his brother that they were returning to their country and started another school."Of course darling, I will drop you off at school and return to pick you home"Theresa Mo answered and kissed his temple. She planted a featherlight kiss on Tim's temple as well before walking them out into the car. The last person Theresa Mo ever expected to meet at the kindergarten was Tiana Mo. Theresa Mo glanced at her briefly before walking past her to get her kids.Tiana Mo was surprised. She wasn't expecting that Theresa Mo would be in a place like the kindergarten as well.She has finally come out of her hiding. Perhaps she had encountered Lu Jingli and been begging him with her body.Her husband and Theresa Mo have been having affairs. He was making love to her and was moaning Theresa's name. Oh, she understands everything perfectly.She had Lu Jingli all day and only comes home to say he is not interested in doing it with her. She has to warn Theresa to stay away from her husband.
