The old man said somberly, "Your grandmother and I met through a traditional matchmaking session. When we got married, I was still in the army, and of course, there weren't any romantic feelings between us. If it weren't for the natural disaster that tore our family apart, your grandmother and I would have grown old together with our children and grandchildren."
He ended his speech, and his tone had a tinge of sorrow.
Grandfather had never bared his heart to her before. Xuxu looked at his face and his white hair, and suddenly she could feel her eyes brimming with tears.
She stretched her hand to grip his arm tightly. But she seemed to have lost her voice as though a hand was clutching at her throat.
It took a while before she collected herself and smiled back at the old man. "Alright, I'll be happy with him."
So the reason why Grandfather disliked Yan Rusheng was all because he knew how she felt. He was being protective of her.
She felt really guilty.
Young Master Yan missed Xuxu badly during those two days. The longing was almost excruciating.
He wanted to go to her place, but he was afraid of meeting her grandfather. Thus, he drove to her apartment and just like before, he could only catch a glimpse of her drawing the curtains.
He came to work earlier than usual on Monday, and he entered his office excitedly.
As the saying goes, a person will be in high spirits if there is a happy occasion. He donned his usual outfit of a white shirt and black pants, seemingly on cloud nine.
There was a faint smile on his gorgeous face, and he looked like a breath of warm spring wind.
Even the security guard at the entrance felt his heart pounding when he saw him.
The cleaner was still tidying and cleaning the President's vast office. When she saw Yan Rusheng walking in, she instantly bowed in fear. "President Yan, I'll be done in a minute."
"It's alright, take your time," Young Master Yan replied gently.
The cleaner was stunned as she watched the towering Young Master Yan walk past her. She was overwhelmed with surprise and happiness.
Yan Rusheng reached his office and turned the doorknob. He couldn't help but steal a glance at Xuxu's desk.
He spun around and walked towards her desk.
It was exactly like how he'd imagined; clean and tidy. All the documents were labeled specifically into neat categories.
He smiled with fondness and affection.
His excellent mood wavered the second he spotted the furry doll on her desk. His smile vanished instantly.
"Let's see how many times you can survive." Young Master Yan fiercely grabbed the innocent doll and walked towards the cleaner.
Without hesitation, he dumped it into the trash bag on the cleaner's trolley. With that, he'd callously settled his and the doll's feud for Xuxu's affection.
The truth is, Young Master Yan was the one forcefully vying for Xuxu's affection.
The cleaner couldn't understand why the boss had thrown away Secretary Wen's doll. She felt that it was a pity to throw such a cute doll away, but there was nothing else she could do. She didn't dare to reveal any expression on her face.
Yan Rusheng returned to his office and found the coffee machine he hadn't used in a long time. He brewed coffee for himself since he was in a good mood.
After pouring out a cup, he savored the fragrance of coffee permeating the air.
Taking a sip gracefully, he smiled in satisfaction.
He turned around to look at the flask of coffee and thought... if he gave a cup to that stupid woman, she would definitely be touched.
He glanced at the clock, it was 8.50 a.m.
Without further ado, he had to put the coffee on her desk now while the office was still empty. If someone spotted him, how embarrassing would it be?
