Xuxu trembled in shock and when she raised her head to look at him, he had already stood up and walked out of the dining room.
She stole a glance at his bowl. He had only taken a few mouthfuls of rice and hardly touched the dishes.
Why did he suddenly throw his temper?
Was he so sick of her to the extent that he no longer wanted to share the same table with her for meals?
Sigh.How long more could their relationship go on if they had to continue living in such a state?
After dinner, Xuxu drove a white Mini Coopera car that she seldom drove out from the garage and left the house.
Today’s weather was gloomy and the temperature seemed to have plunged by a few degrees all of a sudden.
Steadily, she stopped the car by the roadside, carried her bag and alighted from the vehicle. She headed towards her grandfather’s clinic.
She could hear Qi Lei calling her from afar. She lifted her head and looked towards his direction and quickened her footsteps.
The young man was dressed in a black woolen sweater with the clinic’s white robe draped over him. He must have just finished treating a patient as his mask was still hanging over his ears.
“Where’s grandfather?” Xuxu asked as she walked closer to him.
Qi Lei pointed to the house. “He should be inside.”
Xuxu replied with an‘Ok’and was about to walk inside when Qi Lei stopped her all of a sudden. “Sister Xuxu, please wait a moment.”
Cautiously, he stole a glance in the direction of the house and leaned closer to Xuxu. He whispered a warning to her, “Grandfather is fuming mad. If you didn’t come, he was prepared to go and look for you.”
Hearing this, Xuxu nodded her head. “I got it.”
Without a doubt, grandfather must be enraged over her scandal with Charles.
When the news was out on the first day, he already called her to ask about the ins and outs of the matter. At that time, the news didn’t mention about her ‘resorting to unscrupulous means to marry Yan Rusheng’ and the elderly man comforted her as he was worried that she would be emotionally affected by this matter.
But now that the rumors have spread like wildfire, the elderly man must be extremely anxious.
“Grandfather.” Xuxu entered the door and greeted him. The old man wasn’t seated at the counter.
She was about to head to the second floor when the old man suddenly appeared at the staircase landing on the second floor. He was presentably dressed. One look and you could tell that he was about to leave the house.
He looked at Xuxu with a calm and collected look. “Why are you here?”
Xuxu smiled. “This is my parental home. Why can’t I come back?”
Fortunately, she came. The elderly man had all along harbored all kinds of discontentment towards Yan Rusheng and had always been cautious about him.
And Yan Rusheng was someone who absolutely had no patience even towards his flesh and blood grandmother and mother.
If grandfather found his way there, the matter would have been blown out of proportion.
“Come with me to the newspaper office now. I want to ask them if they saw it with their own eyes. Otherwise, they shouldn’t report such groundless conjecture.” Grandfather’s feet had already regained their nimbleness and his agility is no less than that of a young person as he walked down the steps in a tumultuous manner.
As he stood in front of her, he grabbed her hand and dragged her along.
Xuxu flung off his hand. “Grandfather, let them write whatever they want. I have nothing to hide.”
When the old man turned back and looked at Xuxu again, his face had already turned ashen and there was a look of worry in his eyes. “Third Yan this scoundrel. I must ask him today. In what way is my granddaughter not good enough for him?”
Hearing this, Xuxu could feel her eyes brimming with tears and she hugged her grandfather. “Grandfather, I am alright.”
Even though she said that she was alright, her tears had already raced down her cheeks.
It wasn’t because she was indifferent but even if she were to be nursing a grievance, no one would feel sorry for her. That’s why she chose to put on a pretense and behaved nonchalantly.
