After Yuki fell asleep, Eto decided to go to Sachiko's room. When he arrived there, his father and mother were sitting next to her bed. His heart immediately went out to Sachiko's appearance. The last time they saw each other was during the wedding.

She lost too much weight, and he could see the extreme pain that she must be feeling on how tightly her eyes were shut.

"Father, Mother, will you go to Yuki for now? I want to talk with grandma."

The couple left the room after bidding Sachiko goodbye.

Eto sat on the chair at her right, and looked softly at Sachiko. He touched her forehead.

"Grandmother, "

Sachiko opened her eyes, seeing the look on Eto, she forced a smile.

"Don't pity me, my child. I am old enough to go."

Eto's eyes reddened at her words. He felt a lump in his throat and he could not say a word.

"Eto, thank you for accepting Yuki. That child has been through a lot, more than what an ordinary child should have underwent. Please be patient with her. I believe that the only person who can save her is you." Sachiko's words were slow and weak, and he could tell that with every word she let out, she was putting a lot of effort on it.

"Don't worry about Yuki anymore, grandmother. I promise you that I will take care of her, as well as our child."

A worried look flashed on Sachiko's face, and she looked intently at Eto.

"Eto, I know that you must be having a problem with Yuki." Eto could not reply yes, he chose to stay silent and wait for her to continue. "Please get my purse on the table, you would see a keyholder there. Please take the smallest key."

Eto followed as she instructed.

"Take it with you, Eto."

"What is this for, grandma?"

Sachiko has an aggrieved and bitter expression on her face, she looked straight to the ceiling and stayed silent for a while before turning back to look at Eto.

"That is the key to Yuki's past." At Eto's puzzled look, Sachiko nodded knowingly. "I know that you must be thinking how Yuki is different. Eto, that child needs you." Her voice cracked. Tears fell on the side of her eyes to Eto's discomfort. He wiped her tears with tissue.

"Please stop crying grandma." Sachiko continued to weep silently, as a burning pain coursed through her spine from her abdomen, her eyes suddenly shut tightly. Her hands attached with many tubes began to move involuntarily on her sides.

Eto pressed a button on her bed to call for a nurse. Sachiko seemed to be having a seizure of some sort. She was mumbling incoherent words while weeping and alternately opening and closing her eyes.

"Grandma!"

Yuki arrived on the door with Eiji and Risa with her. At her worried look, Eto went to h

me to your husband?"

"There is no need for you to know him." Yuki replied. Then, Eto stood up, put his arm around her waist and smiled at Yuki knowingly.

"Good afternoon, you must be Yuki's mother. I am Eto Iguchi. Yuki's husband. Nice to meet you." Eto was not fond of Yuki's mother, but he has to play his role to know why she would show herself all of a sudden after abandoning Yuki for 12 years. He knew about her from the information that the investigator gathered.

Mariko's eyes widened. She now remembered where she had seen him!

With a wide and pleased smile, she bowed at Eto.

"Senator Iguchi, it's a pleasure to have met you personally. I am so surprised that my daughter was able to be married to someone of your status but I am happy for her. I am so sorry for not attending your wedding, it must have been a grand celebration." She casted a glance at Yuki's reddened face that was seething in anger. "I was not informed."

Eto smiled, but it was a cold one.

"I understand, Miss Sato. During the wedding, we had no idea about your whereabouts, so forgive our mistake."

Mariko laughed nervously. She deliberately did not inform her mother-in-law and daughter where she and her second husband is living now, not knowing that it would lead to this disadvantage.

"Why did you come here? You abandoned us a long time ago, so why return now?" Yuki cut in, her words were strong and straight, hoping that it would make Mariko feel a bit guilty.

However, Mariko does not have any guilty feeling at all towards her action years ago. The reason why she came back now when she was informed by the city hall that Sachiko has died is to receive all the money that will be collected from the wake and the funeral. She never expected what a better fortune awaits her now.
