Indeed, after hearing what Xuxu said today, it really seemed impossible.
But that’s not what she should be worried about, right?
“How can my Xuxu and my Rusheng not be together?” The old lady sighed. She had hidden these words in her heart all this while.
The old lady’s eyes reddened.
‘If things could work out between us, I wouldn’t have waited until today’ … She finally realized how impossible it was for Xuxu and Rusheng to be together after all.
Her words were like millions of arrows piercing through Xuxu’s heart.
They also left Yan Rusheng in a daze. He had just stepped inside and was standing at the entrance, looking in the direction of the sofa. Wang Daqin’s words kept ringing in his ears.
Like having a sharp knife twisted into his heart, each breath he took left him in agony.
‘According to what you’ve described, your love has progressed to a stage where you’ll suffer from agony and grief if you see her with another guy.’
The psychologist’s word suddenly came back to his mind, leaving him terrified.
No, this is impossible.
Just recently, he was still waiting for Fang Jiayin’s return and almost wanted to look for her while he was in Country Y.
How was it possible to fall so deeply for another woman within such a short time?
He turned around and leaned lifelessly against the shoe rack.
“What? I’ll come back immediately.”
Suddenly, Xuxu’s voice could be heard coming from the other side. This disrupted his thoughts, and he walked in anxiously.
“Grandmother, Qi Lei called saying that my grandfather fell down the stairs. I need to go now.” Ashen-faced, Xuxu bade Wang Daqin goodbye while walking towards the door.
“How could this have happened?” Wang Daqin was also in a state of shock and walked hurriedly with Xuxu. “Was he sent to the hospital?”
Xuxu said, “The ambulance has just arrived. I’m going to the hospital directly”.
Her voice was trembling slightly, and she looked panic-stricken and helpless.
Qi Lei was crying uncontrollably over the phone as well. Grandfather’s injuries must be serious.
Suddenly, a towering figure appeared, grabbed her wrist and dragged her out of the door.
At the courtyard, the headlights of the black Mercedes S600 were turned on. The front passenger seat door opened and she was shoved inside.
Yan Rusheng got into the car and started the engine. He stole a glance at the woman seated on the passenger seat. She was like a wounded bird, and he just had to protect her.
Suddenly, he leaned over.
Not knowing his intentions, Xuxu instinctively straightened her back and held her breath, her body stiffening.
“Your grandfather exercises regularly to keep fit, so he’ll be alright.” Yan Rusheng’s long arms crossed over to Xuxu’s body, helping her to fasten her seatbelt and at the same time, consoled her.
His voice was soft and gentle.
Xuxu gave a sniffle and burst out crying. “I’m scared. I was so young when my parents got into an accident. At that time, there were so many people around me, and I could hear people weeping everywhere. I cried too, even though I didn’t know why they were crying. Grandfather hugged me and said, ‘Xuxu, you’ve got to learn well when you’re staying at Grandfather Yan’s home. Your parents are no longer around. When I’m old, I’ll be counting on you to support me’. And so, I wiped away my tears and left with Grandfather Yan.”
She lowered her head. Tears streamed down her face and fell onto the back of her hands. “There was this one time, I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and saw Grandfather holding on to my father’s photo. He was weeping so bitterly, so afraid of what would happen to me if he were to suddenly leave.”
