The Returning Ex
Chapter 1449 Horrible Mother
Chapter 1449 Horrible Mother. There was a basketball court nearby, and it was packed at this hour. Ian and Cindy didn’t talk for a while. They didn’t have any topics in common after all. Sitting there in silence wasn’t awkward for them, but it wasn’t exactly comfortable either. And so, Ian started talking. He asked about some private questions, like the home she grew up in. Since they were getting along well, Cindy thought she could answer that. She gave him a smile. “I come from a village. My folks are misogynistic, so they only cared about my brother. Good thing I have a good relationship with my brother, so it was fine. ” She looked up at the sky. “I used to have a nice life, but then something happened to the family. And so, I had to start supporting them. I’m the firstborn after all. At this point, she chuckled and looked at Ian. “Do you think I love money too much?”. Ian arched his eyebrow. “It’s not w rong to love money. Money is good
Nobody hates it. I certainly don’t. Cindy nodded. “Yeah. Money is great. Honestly, I think that all of m y problems can be solved if I have enough money. ” She paused for a m oment and added, “Really, all my problems can be solved with money. Ian believed her. People kept saying money wasn’t everything, and that there were a lot of problems money couldn’t solve. However, most of the problems people faced were related to money. As long as they had enough of it, they could solve their problems. Cindy went on, “I majored in fashion design. Lots of people said I’d become a famous designer, and I thought so too. ” She then said sheepishly, “But after I graduated, I found out I’ll have to work my way up slowly, building u p my resume and experience. The usual stuff, you know? I didn’t have the luxury of time because of my family’s situation. At that time, I heard becoming an assistant made money fast, so I interviewed for one. ” As she spoke, sh e flexed her muscles at him. “Honestly, I’m grateful for my muscles. Hannah kept me around because I’m strong and I can hold a lot of things. Never thought I could manage to keep a job because of my brawn instead of my brains. Cindy laughed, thinking it was funny
However, Ian couldn’t bring himself to laugh as well. Even t hough Cindy made it sound like a funny story instead of a complaint, it still didn’t sit well with Ian. His early life wasn’t all that well either, so he could understand where she was coming from. He said, “You know, I kinda envy you. I never even had the chance to attend university. Only managed to register for the entrance exam on ce I started making money on my own. You’re much luckier than I was. Nobody exposed Ian’s education history before, so Cindy looked at him, surpri sed. “I thought the Morgans were rich. Ian smiled. “Yes, bu t they didn’t want to spend a dime on me. She sighed. “You were born on a silver platter, but you grew up poor like me. That reminded Cindy of Aurora. She looked like a fashionable lady and wore the latest clothes. Judging from the way she talked and d ressed, she had money to spare even though her life wasn’t all that well. Cindy trusted that Aurora knew Ian never attended universi ty. Even if she couldn’t help him out too much, she should have the money to pay for his education at the very least, but she didn’t. What kind of mother is that? She hur t her own child, but then she had th e audacity to make demands from him?
