She doesn’t tell anything else, she doesn’t show Chen Che any picture of his father and she doesn’t tell where his father’s grave is if that man is really dead. Not wanting to talk about the man that hurt her, Chen Ya Juan threatens her son with never seeing her again if he insists asking about his father.
