Chapter 2132: Dominant Personality, Subordinate Personality
Ye Qianqian found everything about the situation strange, and suddenly recalled something. Therefore, she asked, “Right! Hubby, didn’t you tell me that Manting had regained her memory? Why is it that…”
“Shh…” Shen Zhilie shushed her as he placed his finger on his lips and sat on the bed.
With a frown, he pondered for a while before answering, “I’m afraid it’s going to get complicated.”
Shen Luo’an coaxed Shen Manting to sleep before coming out of the room.
He then proceeded to knock on Shen Zhilie’s door twice and immediately headed to take a seat on the couch.
Shen Zhilie walked out and when he saw Shen Luo’an’s sombre expression, he asked, “Did Sister Manting fall asleep just now? Did she suddenly wake up and resumed the personality of 12-year-old Manting?”
Shen Luo’an took out a cigarette, lit it, and grunted, confirming Shen Zhilie’s suspicions.
“Indeed, she has dissociative identity disorder.”
Shen Zhilie made his diagnosis, uttering each word slowly.
Every word caused Shen Luo’an to feel extremely unsettled. He looked at Shen Zhilie, and asked, “What do you mean?”
“Simply put, it’s very likely that this is happening because Sister-in-law’s dominant personality does not want to recall the past but there is another consciousness in her subconscious awakening that memory,” Shen Zhilie analyzed slowly. “Sister Manting wants to emerge, but Sister-in-law doesn’t want her to. Hence, the two personalities became at odds with each other and spilt. From one person, she has become two.”
And now, even Shen Zhilie’s words showed that he regarded Shen Manting as two people.
Shen Luo’an fell silent.
He continued smoking his cigarette quietly but his mind was in a mess.
“So she’s bipolar?” Ye Qianqian interrupted. Disbelief was written all over her face. “I’ve only ever seen it in comics before. Will Manting be prone to physical violence?”
“…Judging from the current situation, neither Sister Manting nor Sister-in-law will be aggressive,” Shen Zhilie replied.
“I see. That’s what I think too,” Ye Qianqian sat near them and looked at Shen Luo’an. Feeling sympathetic, she asked, “Big Brother, is Sister-in-law asleep?”
“Yeah,” Shen Luo’an’s head was spinning and was gently rubbing his temples. “What am I supposed to do?”
He was finding it extremely hard to accept Shen Manting in such a state.
He could never tell when she’d be friendly or hostile, or when she’d be which personality. He had no idea of anything at all, he was at a loss.
“Do you hope that it’ll be Sister-in-law who wakes up or Sister Manting?” Shen Zhilie asked, his voice low.
Shen Luo’an inhaled the cigarette smoke and glanced up at Shen Zhilie.
Shen Zhilie’s expression was indescribably sombre.
Shen Luo’an couldn’t identify how he felt at that moment. He let out a long puff of smoke and chuckled, “I don’t know.”
He really didn’t.
Shen Manting and Shen Manting. They were both Shen Manting.
Only when both of them existed together was Shen Manting whole.
This situation was far beyond his imagination.
On one hand, he felt lucky. However, at the same time, he felt deep sorrow.
“Between the two personalities, one is dominant and dominates most of the body’s consciousness and behavior. The subordinate personality is mostly in a passive state,” Shen Zhilie explained slowly. “After listening to Sister-in-law’s words just now, I’m guessing that when Sister Manting is active, although she can’t tell if she’s in a dream or in reality, she is likely to still possess a sense of perception.”
“So, when she’s active, does the other Manting possess a sense of perception too?” Ye Qianqian asked.
There were two Mantings, and both men understood which she was referring to.
Shen Zhilie hesitated for a moment before answering, “I can’t be sure. Judging from Sister Manting’s behavior today, she probably doesn’t. We’ll just have to observe her tomorrow to find out.”
