Chapter 45 Part 2
Author – Cherry_Blossom
When he hesitated, Erna became slightly embarrassed.
“… What’s wrong?”
His reaction was wrong.
At this point, he should’ve already taken her hand.
Although he would put up a grumpy attitude for being treated like a child, his ears would grow slightly red.
That was how it usually went.
But now her son was only looking at her with eyes that questioned her intentions.
Very much like when she first approached him.
“Did something happen during your class?”
‘But he looked fine just a moment ago..”
‘I missed you’.
A word she uttered without much thought.
Her son was but a young child who craved his mother’s affection, and Erna felt satisfied simply by filling that need.
She never considered that her sudden friendliness might have put too much of a pressure on him.
Not only mistreatment, but even an unfamiliar affectionate approach could cause harm if not delivered appropriately.
And in her son’s case, as he already had emotional wounds, suddenly overwhelming him with unfamiliar words may not have been a wise approach.
Even worse, Erna was planning a divorce.
Recalling that fact, her heart ached, and her hand slowly fell.
Regardless of the need to do so, her selfish actions may end up causing him a greater wound than what had already been done.
‘I’m such a hypocrite.’
