The moment she heard this person mention Old Lady Shen, Yun Bixue naturally knew who this person was. Rightfully, Old Lady Shen was her grandmother, but of course, she wasn’t related by blood to that witchy old woman.
Old Lady Shen was also the woman who used to sleep beside Old Master Yun. However, the two of them had already separated legally, so he was currently single.
Yun Bixue didn’t expect Old Lady Shen to send one of her subordinates here.
Her expression turned solemn as she removed her seatbelt. Just as she was about to get out of the car to take a look, Xie Limo grabbed her hand and stopped her. “Don’t go out yet. I’ll get someone to take him away first. We’ll question him afterwards so we won’t alarm Grandfather.”
Yun Bixue understood that it was better not to let Grandfather find out about Old Lady Shen. It would stir up and ruin his mood, and she didn’t want to affect his peaceful life.
Xie Limo called someone, and a subordinate from the Xie family came to take that person away. Once that was done, Xie Limo drove slowly into the villa.
Hearing the sounds of a car, Old Master Yun hurriedly put down the teacup he was holding and went to the garden with Aunt Zhou.
He saw Yun Bixue walking over carrying several bags after she got out of the car. When she arrived beside Old Master Yun, she hugged him and said, “Grandfather.”
“It’s good that you’re here. Quick, come in. Why did you bring me gifts?”
Yun Bixue chuckled. “These are from Limo and me. They’re nothing fancy. Whenever we’re out having fun and see something interesting, we usually buy it.”
Indeed, when Xie Limo rode the bicycle and brought Yun Bixue around, they would see all kinds of gift shops. They would always enter those shops, and if they see anything nice, they would purchase it.
One of the bags contained fun little gifts.
Yun Bixue took them out one by one. There were antique tea sets, ancient paintings, handcrafted porcelain, and drawings.
They were all what Old Master Yun liked.
When Old Master Yun picked up one of the paintings, he put on his glasses and examined it. Suddenly, his hands trembled, and his eyes focused intently on the painting.
“Grandfather, what’s wrong? Are you uncomfortable with your glasses? I’ll take you out next time to get a new pair.”
Old Master Yun trembled and said, “No, I’m fine… Bixue, where did you get this painting?”
Yun Bixue saw the odd expression on Grandfather’s face and took the painting from his hands. After taking a good look at it, she answered, “Oh, you mean this? I bought it from Xiangnan Town. The shop owner was reluctant to sell us this painting at first, but we pestered him for a long time. In the end, he said that since we’re fated to meet, he would just sell the painting to us. It was so weird, and he seemed so mysterious. What ‘fated to meet’? Who cares about that in this era?”
Old Master Yun asked, “Xiangnan Town? Xiangnan Town? Is it in Guhuai City? The Xiangnan Town near Nanbei Sea?
“That’s right, Grandfather. You know that place too? I didn’t even know there was such a town there. It’s really pretty and reminds me of the olden days. It’s so rare that the North has such a town too. I really like all the things I saw there, but I like this painting the most. I don’t know why, but the moment I saw it, I wanted to buy it.”
“You wanted to buy it the moment you saw it?” Old Master Yun’s expression was extremely odd. He looked like he was very agitated, but his voice sounded calm.
“Yes, Grandfather. Limo knew that I liked it, so he tried to convince the shop owner. Indeed, his handsome looks and charm were more effective. That shop was owned by a married couple, and they looked like they really love each other. They could tell that Limo and I were in a wonderful relationship, that’s why they agreed to our request. But I have to hand it to that couple. They’re really loyal. They’ve kept this painting on behalf of the original owner for so many years!” While Yun Bixue was explaining, she felt rather sentimental. Seeing that Grandfather liked it, she thought that her purchase was really worth it.
