Chapter 963

Without giving Xuxu and the rest a chance to respond, he continued, “To be frank, even if I didn’t lose one leg, I also won’t be able to live long . ”

Xuxu, Mu Li and Yan Weihong were surprised when they heard this .

With a startled look, everyone fixed their gaze on the man lying on the hospital bed with labored breathing .

He momentarily had paused before he displayed a smile full of self-mockery on his face . “At that moment when I rushed forward to save President Yan, I was thinking, if I saved President Yan, will he give me a handsome reward? If so, when I passed on, Jingjing will have the money to attend university . ”

Without a doubt, Bai Lisong had caught everyone in shock, and yet at the same time they were visibly touched .

Regardless of what went through his mind at that time, the truth was, he saved Yan Rusheng’s life—the most important person in their lives .

And also the fatherly love for his daughter, risking his life in exchange for her future .

However, they were also curious why Bai Lisong said that he couldn’t live long . Was he ill?

Bai Lisong looked at the expressions on their faces and sensed their bewilderment . He added, “I’m at the terminal stage of stomach cancer . ”

It caught everyone surprised .

Terminal stage of stomach cancer!

Bai Lisong continued, “Actually, Xiaojing is still unaware of this . When I first found out, she was having her exams and I didn’t want it to affect her . Hence, I kept it from her . Please don’t let her know, too . ”

After that, he looked at them with a pleading expression . “You don’t have to worry about my leg . I’m okay if I get discharged from the hospital anytime . But Jingjing had just finished her exams and we still don’t know how she fared in the exam . I plead with you to help her . ”

He tightly reached out to grab Mu Li’s arm, refusing to let go .

Appearing as if he was leaving anytime .

Mu Li nodded . “We will be responsible for her life and education from now on . ”

Hearing this, Bai Lisong felt relieved and loosened his grip before heaving a sigh . “She hated her mother . That’s why she refused to leave with her when her mother came to take her away . I’m now really at my wits ends . ”

Xuxu was visibly shocked to hear this . “Her mother is still around?”

Su Yue had told her that Bai Jing didn’t have a mother . Xuxu turned and looked at Su Yue .

Su Yue shook her head, showing she was kept in the dark about it, too .

Bai Lisong said, “Her mother was the one who had arranged for her to study at Flourish & Splendor but she’s not aware . But I guessed that she already had some inkling . Given my state, I wouldn’t have the means to send her to such a prestigious school . Her annual school feels alone would take me over 20 years to earn such an amount . ”

‘Now I get it . ’ Xuxu nodded .

No wonder Bai Jing studying at Flourish & Splendor had puzzled her, given her family financial condition .

After Bai Lisong shared these, she could hazard a guess . Su Yue had mentioned that Bai Jing had lost her mother since young . Given that Bai Jing hated her mother, it was likely her mother had abandoned her at a tender age .

Only money could get her into Flourish & Splendor School . But she had no idea how she got the money and didn’t want to jump to a conclusion yet .

From what they heard, Bai Jing was indeed a sensible child .

At the very least, she didn’t abandon her dad who raised her, and instead, she declined to live with her wealthy mom .

But this was her own conjecture based on what she heard from her father .

Mu Li noticed that it was getting strenuous for Bai Lisong to speak, and so she smiled and assured him, “All right, you set your mind at ease to recuperate . If Bai Jing will continue with her studies, we will make arrangements for her to attend whichever school she prefers . ”

Bai Lisong nodded his head in gratefulness . “Thank you . Thank you . ”

After that, he was finally able to relax and lie down completely to rest as if relieved from a burden .
