According to villagers, Madam Wang has an illegitimate child. This child stayed at Madam Wang’s house, and it appears that Madam Wang has forgotten about her son. When Madam Wang heard this rumor, she was disgusted and worried that this child beggar was not her illegitimate child. He is her adopted son because she adopted him.
“You already have a son,” the villagers inquired.
Why are you taking in a beggar as a son? This story appears to be made up by you.” Madam Wang did not respond to his inquiry. She was adamantly opposed to answering his question. When Madam Wang adopted this beggar as her son, he moved to the city to attend university. A beggar came to Madam Wang’s house that day to beg for food. Madam Wang noticed that this beggar was around her son’s age and appeared honest.
Madam Wang felt sorry for him and fed him well. This beggar came to Madam Wang’s house every day after that meal to beg for food. Madam Wang befriended this little beggar. Madam Wang’s son had gone to study in the city, and she had not heard from him since. During the holiday season, her son would tell her that he was too busy to come home. So Madam Wang would spend the holidays with her adopted son.
Madam Wang is very old, and her legs are no longer as strong as they once were. When she walks, she will require assistance. Fortunately, the adopted son was a strong young man. Every day, he would accompany Madam Wang to the fields. He was of great assistance to Madam Wang. Madam Wang and him have been together for ten years now.
Madam Wang did not receive a single letter from her son during the ten years that passed. Madam Wang had no idea what had happened to her son or why he hadn’t returned home at all. Madam Wang became ill a few days ago and was diagnosed with an incurable disease by doctors. Madam Wang realized she was missing her son, who was studying in the city. Where had he been for the last ten years?
It appears that Madam Wang’s son did not complete his studies. During his second year of university, he dropped out. He considers studying to be a waste of time. He wants to work and earn money, so he dropped out of school and began working. He worked for ten years, but he changed jobs too frequently. Each job was only temporary. He was unable to save a single penny.
When he had spent all of his savings, he remembered his mother in the village, and fortunately for him, he was able to rush home before Madam Wang Pass died. When Madam Wang’s son arrived in the village, he heard rumors from the other villagers about Madam Wang’s illegitimate son. According to the villagers, Madam Wang left all of her inheritance to this illegitimate son and did not care about you.
Madam Wang’s son became enraged and went home, chasing the adopted son out of the house. He didn’t bother to inquire about his mother’s health. Madam Wang’s son stayed by her side for a few days and inherited Madam Wang’s $50,000 inheritance as he desired. When Madam Wang’s son received his inheritance, he returned to the city. Madam Wang was nearing the end of her life. When the beggar saw Madam Wang’s son leave, he ran back home. He remained at Madam Wang’s side.
“My silly son, you have been looking after godmother for ten years,” Madam Wang said to the beggar. Despite the fact that I gave my son my entire $50,000 savings, I still have a treasure to present to you.” “I am afraid of my son finding my private earthen wares,” Madam Wang said as she pointed to a garbage can outside the window. I tossed them in the garbage can. Do not resent me for leaving you some unwanted trash. You’ll know what they are when you open the bag.” Madam Wang died shortly after finishing her sentence.
The adopted son dashed to the trash can, carefully removing the trash bag and peering inside. He was taken aback to discover antiques inside the bag. Inside the bag was a letter. “These are ancestral antiques,” Madam Wang wrote. When I was in my most desperate state, I took them to an antiques shop to have them appraised, and he estimated that they were worth ten million yuan. I didn’t sell them back then, so they must be worth even more now.” Tears streamed down the adopted son’s cheeks after reading the letter.
