“My son always accommodates my daughter-in-law like this and is frequently trapped between us. I honestly feel sorry for him, and I try to bear with my daughter-in-law even if I’m unhappy with her. But who can blame my son for being fond of her? I don’t want to destroy their marriage either.
“Although this was pretty much the end of it, I figured that my previous actions had upset my daughter-in-law because my son kept telling me in later calls that his wife is colder to him than before!!
Unable to help herself, Larissa snarled at the tablet. “Bullshit!”
Her ex-mother-in-law’s skills in truth distortion were honestly getting better and better. It was actually Travis who became colder to her after the new year celebrations.
At that time, she even thought he was mad at her for rejecting his mother’s” kindness”, but he told her that it was because he had to be online to work on a major project, and that his subordinates had created problems for him, so he was in a bad mood and was more irritable. Somehow, she chose to believe all that nonsense that he spouted!
“But they didn’t have any fights or anything, just lived life as usual. But…” Janine suddenly covered her face and started wailing. “My poor boy! Why are you suffering so much? What have you done to deserve all this in life?”
Dick was very cooperative in his act as he comforted her. “Don’t cry now. We’re on the show! If you keep crying like this, we won’t be able to continue shooting it.”
The host did not say anything but just looked a little awkward on the side.
Janine continued wailing for a while before she stopped.
“My son was involved in a car crash last month. It’s very severe as he has hurt his spine. The doctor says that he will be bed bound for the rest of his life. After the accident, from undergoing surgery and being transferred to the intensive care unit to being moved to a regular ward, my daughter-in-law never visited him once, let alone take care of him. She refused to answer any calls from us. I even waited for her outside the hotel where she works for a week, during that
period of heavy rain. I ended up getting sick from being soaked, but she never showed up. I heard the hotel security saying that she would always leave through the back door to avoid me.
“I came on to this show because my son received my daughter-in-law’s divorce petition. That’s right, she wants to divorce my boy and get him to sell the house he bought for us, so she can get half the money! My boy, being an adult now, did not even cry during the surgery, but when he got the court papers, he cried and kept saying he did not want a divorce! We tried to call our daughter-in-law, but she still didn’t answer, and we knew that we’d never find her at the hotel, so we thought of getting the production team here to help us.
“Lari, dear.” Janine looked straight at the camera, her eyes sparkling with tears. “I know I treated you horribly in the past, and I know you don’t like me. But Travis is innocent in all this! He really loves you, and has always protected you from us…” Her voice began to shake. “Yes, Travis is now paralyzed and can no longer do anything. You think him a burden, and we don’t want to do any moral.
kidnapping and keep you together with our boy. But we just want you to visit Travis at the hospital, please! He really misses you.”
