514 Her dumb son clearly likes Pei Ge.
"No, Auntie. Of course, I don't blame you. How hard must it be for you with your face blindness…"
The light smile on Mother Ji's lips tilted downward the moment Pei Ge finished speaking.
"This is the first time someone has said that to me after learning of my condition." Her eyes became misty first before her smile returned.
This time, though, her smile at Pei Ge was more genuine and warmer.
If it is this woman, she can certainly make my son happy…
Pei Ge, who did not know what Mother Ji was thinking currently, only felt a little shocked. "But… isn't that natural?"
Face blindness is truly a saddening condition. One can't even remember the features of their loved ones.
While it is possible to identify others through minute details after being in the company of them for so long or becoming more familiar with them, if all these distinguishing marks are removed, can a person with face blindness still recognize them?
No matter how I think of it, I find the condition as scary.
"You, child, are really innocent." Mother Ji shook her head in amusement at the way Pei Ge thought that it was natural.
Of course, it's not like that.
Everyone thinks that I have a good life. Born into riches and never needing to stress about my basic needs despite my condition, according to others, I can live life without worries.
This is even more so when I married a man the whole world thinks as one of the best out there.
No one finds it a suffering for me to have this condition. Instead, they think that I am the luckiest woman alive to still have my husband's love despite my imperfection.

If only they know how difficult it is for me every time I look at my husband's face and try to find even a feature of him that is different from everyone else's.
Only heaven knows how much I wish I don't have to identify my lover through his voice and smell.
The woman sitting opposite Pei Ge clearly wore a gentle smile, yet she still felt sadness trickling out of her.
Only then did she realize that the woman was probably not as carefree, and playful, as Qin Qitong was.
A person's aura doesn't lie.
Although she seemed to be very playful and carefree, who could be sure that she was not just acting on account of her condition?
Perhaps, it is to make those she cares for not worry about her?
She made this silent guess.
With this kind of topic they had at hand, the atmosphere in the room slowly turned somber from its initial liveliness.
Even the usually insensitive Qin Qitong perceived this awkwardness hanging the air.
"What are you guys talking about?"
At this moment, a low and clear voice sounded.
"Cousin! Why are you here?"
Qin Qitong turned around and exclaimed in surprise when she spotted Ji Ziming.
The two remaining women also turned to look toward the entrance and were equally shocked to find a certain someone standing there.
Why is this annoying fellow here? What is he here for?
She asked that to herself as she watched him walk closer to them.
"Tongtong, listen to yourself; why can't your cousin come? In fact, since Ge Ge is already here, how can he only appear now? It is his responsibility to show up earlier." Mother Ji grinned at her son and then glanced at Pei Ge. Although she had face blindness and could not see her son and his girlfriend's facial features, she still found them to be very compatible.
Don't bother asking a face-blind person like me how I find their looks compatible! This kind of thing depends on a person's aura!
The lips of the two younger ladies in the room twitched at her words.
As for the man, he seemed to like what he had just heard as his expression softened thereafter.
"Son, you have a good taste for a girlfriend. Your mommy here likes her a lot!" She stood up and smiled approvingly at him as she held Pei Ge's hand.
"Mhm." He lightly acknowledged and then casually peered at her.
The moment his gaze landed on her, she felt her face heat up out of shyness.
"Tsk! Cousin, what kind of reaction is that?!" Qin Qitong promptly expressed her dissatisfaction at the way he treated Pei Ge coldly.
She was usually timid and obedient before him, but with the presence of her Sister Pei Ge and her aunt, her courage grew considerably.
However, the instant he peered at her, her bravado easily wilted.
"All right, all right. Ziming came at just the right time. Let's go have our lunch now."
Mother Ji looked at the youngsters around her and laughed happily.
He he! Anyone might think that my son is treating her very coldly, but as his mother, no one understands him better than I do!
From my observation thus far, my son clearly likes Ge Ge a lot!
Although he merely hummed in response, the gentleness between his brows when he turned to look at her couldn't fool me!
It seems that my boring son genuinely likes her!
In this manner, Pei Ge and Mother Ji walked to the dining area hand in hand.
Of course, when choosing their seats, this middle-aged madam purposely arranged for her to sit beside her son.
Sitting beside the man and gauging his mood, Pei Ge moved to say something, only to be interrupted when a young man in a black suit barged into the room then.
"Madam, Master just called me. He's asking for you to answer his call."
Pei Ge widened her eyes at the sound of the young man's voice.
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh?! Why does his voice sound so familiar?
Have I met and talked to this man before?
