Chapter 118 - Why Are You So Afraid Of Him? Is He A Poisonous Snake?
Her grandfather had never mentioned the Fu family to her until his deathbed.
However, no one took this matter to heart at that time.
“Qian Qian, hasn’t your grandfather mentioned me to you?”
“Before Grandpa died, he told me that he had a very good friend with the surname Fu. Back then, he even arranged a marriage. If a member of the Fu family comes to fulfill the engagement, he told me to marry into the Fu family.”
“Fortunately, this old master still remembers this and didn’t go back on his word!” The old master heaved a sigh of relief.
“Back then, no matter how I tried to persuade your grandfather to stay, he was unwilling to stay in the capital! I know he was worried that others would say that he was clinging to power behind his back. He said that he would return to that small place in Cloud City and be carefree.”
“But after he returned to Cloud City, he actually didn’t contact me! When he went back, it was over. Was he trying to cut ties with me? Every time I looked for him, he was polite and even deliberately distanced himself from me. As time passed, I was afraid that I would cause him trouble, so I stopped contacting him.”
“Grandpa, my grandfather is definitely afraid that his family will have plans if they know about his relationship with you,” Shi Qian advised gently.
“Indeed! That father of yours has made your grandfather worry a lot. He might never know that his success was not by chance. If not for the Fu family’s small help, how could he have lived so well!”
Shi Qian was stunned. So the Fu family had helped Lin Shiming behind his back.
“Due to this, your grandfather complained to me that I shouldn’t interfere. Who knew Lin Shiming would divorce your mother!” The old master sighed heavily.
In that case, he was responsible for Qian Qian and her mother’s hard times for so many years!
“After my mother’s divorce, she took me away from Cloud City until Grandpa was seriously ill. Mom and I came to see Grandpa for the last time. Ever since I was young, Grandpa doted on me the most. I think he only mentioned this marriage on his deathbed because he hoped to find me a good home.”
The old master’s heart sank again.
Could Fu Sinian be relied on?
Wen Lan walked into the ward and realized that the old master had woken up and was talking to Shi Qian. She finally relaxed.
Fortunately, the doctor said it was nothing serious.
However, the old master was old and could not be too emotional. Otherwise, his life would still be in danger.
“Qian Qian, you’ve been guarding Grandpa for so long. Go and rest for a while.”
“I’m not tired, Mom. Go back to sleep. I’ll stay with Grandpa.”
“Wen Lan, go to sleep. I’ll talk to Qian Qian.” The old master was also reluctant to part with Qian Qian.
After all, she was young. It was fine if she stayed up for one night.
“Alright, I’ll go rest.” Wen Lan stood up and left.
Shi Qian continued to chat with the old master.
The old master said a lot. He hadn’t talked so freely about his youth in a long time. He felt much more relaxed.
The old master fell asleep when it was almost dawn.
Shi Qian lay by the bed and unknowingly fell asleep.
Jiang Feng pushed Fu Sinian to the ward.
Fu Sinian immediately saw the figure lying by the bed.
He started the wheelchair and came to the bed.
Shi Qian was sleeping soundly and did not notice him at all.
Had she guarded the old master all night last night?
Fu Sinian didn’t even notice as he looked at her pure sleeping face. He stared at her for a long time without looking away.
The sound of the nurse checking the room woke Shi Qian.
She opened her eyes and saw Fu Sinian. She immediately jumped out of her chair.
Fu Sinian frowned slightly at her huge reaction.
Was he some kind of poisonous beast? He made her so afraid!
