Chapter 308 - Why?
After returning home, Wang Qi grabbed Lin Yun with one hand and rushed into the room.
When Aunt Xu saw the two of them, she was about to ask if she needed to prepare supper when they disappeared.
As soon as she entered the room, Wang Qi turned around and looked at Lin Yun seriously. “What did you mean on the way just now?”
Lin Yun looked at Wang Qi’s serious and surprised expression and asked after a while, “Have you never thought about why your grandfather forced you to stay?”
Wang Qi fell silent when Lin Yun asked this.
It wasn’t that she hadn’t thought about it, but she was used to being free and didn’t want to be burdened by her family’s matters.
There were others in the house, weren’t there?
Seeing that Wang Qi did not respond, Lin Yun pulled Wang Qi’s hand and sat down on the sofa.
“I know you’ve liked to be unrestrained since you were young,” Lin Yun said softly, not wanting Wang Qi to be too agitated.
“However, some people have already started to attack your grandfather. Don’t you want to know who did this?”
Hearing Lin Yun’s words, Wang Qi fell silent.
Lin Yun held Wang Qi’s hand tightly and said, “You know, right? The person who wants to harm your grandfather and who is coveting the Wang family’s assets…”
“Actually, you’ve always cared about them.”
“You are concerned about whether they can live happily…”
Hearing Lin Yun’s words, Wang Qi’s eyes turned red.
Lin Yun revealed a helpless smile. “I can understand you, but I also hope you can understand your grandfather.”
“You hate your parents for having neglected you since you were young, but your grandfather treated you like a treasure.”
“Even when you said you wanted to stay abroad and not come back to manage the family business, he let you make your own decisions.”
Two tears slowly rolled down Wang Qi’s face.
Lin Yun gently wiped Wang Qi’s tears. After a while, she said, “Your grandfather has done a lot for you. It’s time for you to do something for him.”
Wang Qi took the handkerchief from Lin Yun and gently wiped her tears. Then, she looked at Lin Yun firmly. “Alright! I’ll listen to you! I’ll do whatever you want me to do!”
The corners of Lin Yun’s mouth curled up slightly, revealing a gentle smile. “You don’t have to force yourself. Just do everything you can.”
Wang Qi lowered her head slightly. After a while, she raised her head and smiled. “I know! I can!”
Lin Yun reached out and hugged Wang Qi, giving her strength.
After a night, Lin Yun discussed her plan with Wang Qi.
Apart from being shocked by Lin Yun’s meticulous plan, Wang Qi did not expect so much to have happened!
Wang Qi couldn’t help but admire Lin Yun. “How do you know so much… and how do you know… their plan?”
Lin Yun didn’t know how to explain to Wang Qi that her thoughts were all because she had experienced a life worse than death.
She did not want Wang Qi to understand those things since those memories were too painful!
Lin Yun shook her head with a faint smile. “I’ve probably watched too many movies about the business world over the years.”
Hearing Lin Yun’s perfunctory answer, Wang Qi did not probe further.
Perhaps, after the past few years, they had secrets that they could not share with each other.
If Lin Yun was like this, so was she…
“Xiaoyu, why are you looking for me at this time?” Zhu Huan looked at Lin Yu with a smile.
Lin Yu looked behind Zhu Huan. “You didn’t tell the others that you were here to see me, right?”
Zhu Huan quickly shook her head and said, “My parents went to bed early and are already asleep!”
“Why did you ask me out?” Zhu Huan asked again.
Lin Yu sighed slowly and leaned against the metal railing. She lit a cigarette.
Seeing this, Zhu Huan quickly asked with concern, “What’s wrong? Are you in a bad mood?”
Lin Yu took a deep puff of her cigarette and slowly exhaled a grayish-white smoke ring before saying, “You’ve seen Lin Yun. She and I really… can’t get along.”
Zhu Huan recalled what happened when she saw Lin Yun and couldn’t help but nod. “Indeed, that person is a little difficult to get along with!”
