Yun Bixue’s expression froze. Her hand stiffened involuntarily, and she almost dropped what she was holding. “Is that true? Old Lady Shen would not hold on for much longer? Wasn’t she doing fine just a while ago?”
“She was tormented by Yang Siru, and both of them argued every day. Also, Yang Siru is gone…” Xie Limo told Yun Bixue everything he learned from Lin Erniu and Xie Liu’s investigations.
Yun Bixue’s expression shifted, and her lips trembled ever so slightly. She was shocked that Old Lady Shen was so close to death right now.
And the person who caused it was Yang Siru!
She used to be Old Lady Shen’s favorite daughter-in-law, and she was also good at sucking up to her. Yun Bixue would’ve never expected their relationship to end up like this.
One could only sigh and feel emotional—the things in this world were, indeed, always changing.
“Old Lady Shen wished to meet grandfather for one last time. What do you think of that?”
Yun Bixue turned around and placed the documents on the table. She hesitated as she was still on the fence about this matter.
Xie Limo walked to Yun Bixue’s side and pushed her shoulder down to get her to sit. Seeing that the television was still on, he grabbed the remote control from the coffee table and switched it off.
The house became silent at once, giving Yun Bixue time to think.
After a while, Xie Limo asked, “Are you still not decided?”
Yun Bixue rubbed her eyes while shaking her head. “I don’t know.” She used to resent and hate Old Lady Shen, but now that she heard her current plight, most of her feelings for her dissipated.
Xie Limo straightened Yun Bixue’s body into an upright position. Seeing her furrowed brows, he rubbed them soothingly and said, “I shouldn’t have told you that. Look at your brows. They’re never moving apart again.”
“If my husband doesn’t tell me, who will he tell?”
“I think that Grandfather will be willing to meet her. No matter how at odds they are with each other, they had been together for so many years. No harm will come from just a simple meeting. Also, it looks like Old Lady Shen still has some secret about your father, so I’m sure grandfather will go and meet her.”
Yun Bixue was startled by the last sentence. She grabbed the hand that was touching her brows and looked at him in the eye. “It’s really something about my father?”
Xie Limo nodded and picked up the documents on the coffee table. He then flipped through a few pages. “These are the information that I instructed Xie Liu to find out. Although it happened a long time ago and a portion of it had been covered up, it was not hard to tell. That year when your parents perished at sea, Grandfather wasn’t in Country A, so it was Old Lady Shen who made arrangements for the funeral. But who knew about what actually transpired that year? Old Lady Shen could be hiding some things that we’re not aware of.”
A cold glint flashed across Yun Bixue’s clear eyes. Her hands clenched into fists by her side as she said, “If Old Lady Shen had a hand in my parents’ death, I will never let her off.”
“She’s already dying. Whatever you do now no longer holds any meaning. The most important thing right now is to let her spill her secrets.”
Yun Bixue gritted her teeth. “In other words, we’ll let Grandfather know about this and get him to meet her?”
The next day, Yun Bixue and Xie Limo visited Old Master Yun again and told him about Old Lady Shen’s current situation and request. Old Master Yun was so shocked and speechless that he instantly sat down.
Finally, Old Master Yun used his walking cane to knock against the floor. “After scheming for so many years, she is finally willing to say it at her deathbed? Hmph! She thinks I’ll go and see her just because she wants to meet me?”
Yun Bixue searched her grandfather’s expression and asked carefully, “Grandfather, are you really not going to meet her?”
Old Master Yun tapped his walking cane anxiously. “Who said I’m not going? If it’s about my son, how could I not go? Let’s go now. We’ll go right away and see what she has to say!”
