One Birth Two Treasures: The Billionaire's Sweet Love Chapter 249
She exclaimed and rushed into the bedroom. She even dropped to the floor to peer under the bed. Was he playing hide and seek with her to give her a scare as punishment for not returning home for two days?
She still could not find him, though.
She was suddenly a little worried. She scurried over to the balcony and looked down in panic as she gripped the railings for support. When she spied no anomalies down there, she calmed down a little.
Her phone was wrecked, so she could not help but entertain scary thoughts.
She failed to see the little boy anywhere. Their house was just this big; it was a 60-square-foot, two-room flat. She had searched every nook and cranny of the unit but, besides her, no one else was in the apartment.
She was extremely frightened by this. She returned to the living room and spotted a phone on the floor at the corner of the table. She walked over and picked it up, vaguely noting that Youyou had somehow managed to change his handphone to a smartphone.
She was still perplexed when she saw that a note had been left on the table.
She took it up. There was a phone number written on the note. Having a bad feeling, she held Youyou's handphone up and dialed the number with trembling hands. The steady but deeply worried voice of Li Hanlin's was heard over the phone.
"Are you Youyou's mommy?"
Because it was her son's phone, the caller ID was always displayed whenever someone called.
"I am! You are?!"
"I'm sir's— ehem… " Li Hanlin caught himself in time. Pausing, he hastily said, "I'm the principal of Youyou's kindergarten. Madam Yun, we've met each other before!"
"Hello, Mr. Li. May I ask if you…"
At the moment, she was at a loss on how to phrase her question, but she heard Li Hanlin continue in an absolutely serious tone of speech, "Madam Yun, has Yun Tianyou's body always been in a bad condition? Is he suffering from acute coronary insufficiency?"
As soon as she heard him ask these questions, she had a premonition, and her heart squeezed. In a shaky voice, she asked, "Yes… Mr. Li, do you know where Youyou is? I just reached home, and I don't see him around. You left a note on the table…"
"He's in the hospital right now. Not too long ago, he called me to say that he's not feeling well. I came as fast as I could and sent him to the hospital…" Li Hanlin paused for a while before carrying on in a stern voice, "Madam Yun, I must criticize you! As a parent, as a mother, how can you leave a child alone at home? Although Yun Tianyou is usually very obedient and mature, he is still just a six-year-old child. He's still young, yet you trust him to be alone at home? A child knows of nothing and lacks safety awareness. This time, he had a relapse. What about next time? Many parents are like this, negligently leaving their children alone at home. A child, being playful, accidentally fell over the balcony and suffered heavy injuries; the media reported of a child that got poisoned – there is no less of these tragic occurrences! You should reflect on this!"
She was frightened to death. Her eyes moistened from Li Hanlin's reprimand, and she felt extremely remorseful!
Indeed, Youyou was only six years old. How could she leave him alone at home?
He originally had a weak body. No matter how big or small the problem was, she should take care of him properly. However, she was irresponsible and left him at home for an entire day. Now her child even had a relapse and was sent to the hospital, yet she did not perform the basic duties of a mother…
Gala? She should not have attended the gala!
Alcohol? She clearly knew of her alcohol capacity, but she still pushed forward. What did she do this for?! She should not have drunk – not one glass and not one sip!
The more contrite she became, the more uncontrollably her tears fell.
