er mother. However, she had texted him that she had given his number and email to her mother.
“…..” Shishio was speechless and realized the unknown number was Tsukiko Tachibana, who was the mother of Hina and Rui. His expression became subtle, and he hesitated to answer Tsukikos call, even though he knew how worried she was toward her second daughter.
Shishio looked at the unknown number on his phone for a while, hesitating, before he walked to a different room so he could talk with Tsukiko calmly. It might be weird of him to have such a hesitation since it was rare of him to show such a thing. However, he was just slightly afraid of being a housewife.
It was hard to describe his feelings, but Shishio was afraid if he really got closer to a housewife, he might do something that shouldnt be done. He knew it was wrong, yet the immorality of the tainted housewife made his body weird.
Was it because of the previous Shishio Oga?
Was it because of himself?
Was it because of the combination between the two of us?
Shishio wasnt sure, but if possible, he hoped Tsukiko would talk with him with her husband right next to her. He pressed the unknown number, and after just one ring, the call was connected, showing how worried she was toward her daughter.
“Shishio-kun, is Rui there?” Her voice was mixed with anger and worry.
“Shes sleeping now.”
However, hearing his calm voice, Tsukiko quickly calmed down. Then, she took a deep breath and asked, “Ho-How was she?”
“Well, she was crying before she slept. Right now, I am bringing her to my apartment. I havent heard anything from her, but it has something to do with the parent-teacher meeting, right?”
That was the only explanation.
Tsukiko hesitated but heard his words. “Tsukiko-obaasan, please tell me. I am related. I am worried about her.” She let out a sigh and knew Shishio was related to this since his relationship with her daughter was obvious, and her daughter also stayed in his apartment. She didnt hesitate anymore and told him what had happened during the parent-teacher meeting.
The meeting, which Tsukiko thought was smooth, turned into a disaster when she heard Ruis aspiration to become a chef.
“Is it not alright for her to become a chef?” Shishio asked.
“You dont know anything, Shishio-kun.” Tsukikos voice was full of spit and hate, especially when she thought about her ex-husband.
However, Shishio didnt feel surprised since he could imagine how hurt it was to be cheated by someone they loved. It was more painful than being killed, especially when the one who cheated could leave peacefully and even get a new partner, yet they still had the trauma of their partner who had cheated on them.
This feeling… unless one had experienced it, one couldnt imagine.
It was also the reason why Nietzsche often said love was a source of madness.
We might be able to control our body, gestures, and many others, yet an emotion was something that couldnt be controlled.
Shishio didnt say anything and just listened to her choke and cry. The damage caused by her previous husband was deeper than anyone could imagine. Hina and Rui might have been by her side before, but she was the only one who could feel her pain. Her daughters were also too young to understand her feelings back then. She couldnt trust anyone easily again, and she could fight everything alone.
Tsukiko couldnt share her feelings with anyone and just buried everything deep to the side of her heart while working hard so she could forget everything, yet could she?
Tsukiko couldnt, but when she almost forgot after she could trust someone again, her daughter told her she was going to follow her ex-husbands steps. She was furious, enraged, and sad, thinking Rui did this out of the spit.
As Ruis boyfriend, Shishio knew he should take Ruis side, yet at this moment, he couldnt fight his mother-in-law blatantly since Rui didnt know the feeling of being hurt by someone they loved.
Tsukiko had felt it and didnt want to be hurt again, yet Ruis decision hurt her again.
Shishio didnt say anything, listening to Tsukikos cry, choke, and anger about her past when she was cheated on by her previous husband. While he listened, he saw Rui had woken up, seemingly listening to his conversation with her mother in silence.
Shishio had done this deliberately, so no one would misunderstand each other. After all, he had Rui know that her decision to become a chef would hurt her mother.
Right now, Rui was forced to choose between love or a dream.
If Rui loved her mother, she had to stop becoming a chef, yet could she give up her dream too easily?
Rui didnt say anything and didnt know what to do. She just stood in silence, lowering her head, while no one knew what she was thinking.
Shishio gestured to her to move closer, which she abided, moving closer, before she sat on the ground, leaning her head on his leg. He gently caressed her head while listening to Tsukikos story. Still, he couldnt help but sigh inwardly since he hoped for Akihito Fujii to come and console his wife, or else he was afraid he might enter Tsukikos heart at this moment.
