Chasing Moon: “That’s not a bad reward.”
Xue Jiayue: “…”
This reward was so bad, what about the agreed hundred thousand gold coins? What about the attack magic weapon? What about the high-end mounts he talked about?
He should know that when she completed this task, the system finally rewarded her with 30,000 gold coins which was not too much but also not bad, at least she could buy a lot of things. But what was this pair of love rings as a reward? She and “Chasing Moon” were not a couple in the game, this was ridiculous, this game system has a BUG!
Chasing Moon seems to be unaware of this situation and was still very happy as he sends a message to Xue Jiayue in the game dialog box, “Since you help me complete the task, I will give you the female ring.”
“No,” Xue Jiayue replied quickly.
Chasing moon hurriedly asked, “Why? This is the system reward.”
Xue Jiayue: “It’s not like we’re a couple. You take it yourself.”
Chasing moon waited for a while before sending a message, “Oh.”
Xue Jiayue returned, “I’m getting off, 88.”
By the time, Chasing Moon answered “88”, Xue Jiayue already went offline.
When Xue Jiayue exited the game, she raised her eyes and saw Xu Yanwen looking at her with burning eyes.
“What’s wrong?” Xue Jiayue asked curiously.
Xu Yanwen asked back, “Finished playing the game?”
Xue Jiayue gave a “hmm”.
Xu Yanwen asked again, “Was it fun?”
Xue Jiayue smiled a little, “It’s okay, I met a strange warrior who added me.”
“Helped me complete the puzzle treasure hunt.”
Xu Yanwen seemed to be interested, “Has the mission been completed? What reward did you get?”
Xue Jiayue thought of the reward and waved her hand and said, “Let’s not talk about it.”
At this moment, Dr. Yang came in to examine Old Master Xu and asked him about his physical condition, which just diverted Xue Jiayue and Xu Yanwen from talking about games.
After Dr. Yang finished examining Old Master Xu, Xu Yanwen asked, “How is my grandfather doing?”
“The observation is fine for the past two days, and the surgery will be done tomorrow morning at ten o’clock.” Dr. Yang carefully told Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue about the surgery arrangements.
When Dr. Yang finished his explanation and left, Old Master Xu said to Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue, “I’m having surgery tomorrow, so you don’t have to stay here tonight, go back to your apartment and rest, and come back tomorrow.”
Xue Jiayue was uneasy about Old Master Xu’s health and refused to go, saying, “Grandpa, I want to stay with you.”
Old Master Xu waved his hand, “I don’t need you to accompany me. A’zhen can stay and take care of me. You have been watching me all night yesterday, go back and have a good rest today.”
As he was talking, someone pushed the door outside and came in. It was Old Master Xu’s second son and his second daughter-in-law, Xu Yanlin’s parents rushed back.
“Dad, how are you? What did the doctor say?” As soon as Second Uncle Xu entered the door, he rushed to the bedside, squeezing Xue Jiayue and Xu Yanwen behind.
Old Master Xu swept a displeased glance at Second Uncle Xu, his face sinking downward as he chided, “You still know to visit me? Aren’t you sorry that you didn’t wait until I died?”
“Dad, what are you talking about? Didn’t I hurry back from abroad as soon as I got the news?” Second Uncle Xu looked at the old man’s face and continued. “I’m really worried about you too.”
“Yes, Dad, we rushed back from America as soon as we got the news.” Second Madam Xu also hastened to round up the situation.
Hearing this, Old Master Xu became even angrier, glaring at Second Uncle Xu and Second Madam Xu he grunted then looked over towards Xu Yanwen and said, “Didn’t you say they had gone to G City to investigate a project? How come they just rushed back from America.”
In order to comfort Old Master Xu, Xu Yanwen said Second Uncle Xu and Second Madam Xu had gone to City G to inspect a project. Xu Yanwen and Second Uncle Xu made this agreement but Second Madam Xu was unaware causing Second Madam Xu to spill the beans.
Second Uncle Xu immediately glared at the second Madam Xu before turning his head to explain to his old man, “We went to G City first and then found that there is a company in the United States with more advanced technology, the offer is also cheaper, so we went to the United States to take a look, to examine the situation.”
“Yes, yes, that’s right. That’s how it is, we went to the United States to inspect the project.” Second Madam Xu also reacted at this moment and quickly followed Second Uncle Xu’s words.
But who was Old Master Xu? He was a smart person, of course, he didn’t believe the words of these two. Knowing these two, Second Uncle Xu and his wife didn’t go to the United States for a project, they must be out there to travel and rushed back after they received a call from Xu Yanwen but not necessarily to see him but maybe anxious to inherit his inheritance. The thought of these people thinking about this made Old Master Xu unhappy, he said with indifference written on his face, “Just tell me the truth, do you guys think I don’t know what’s running in your mind? I am your old man, I know what you fart when your ass is up.”
Second Uncle Xu had an embarrassed look on his face.
Second Madam Xu smiled as she said, “Dad don’t talk like that. We really care about your health so we hurried back to see you.”
“Since you care about me so much, you two will stay and take care of me tonight,” said Old Master Xu.
“You can’t?” Old Master Xu saw the hesitation on Second Madam Xu’s face, she and Second Uncle Xu were husband and wife, and they could do whatever they wanted so seeing the hesitation on their faces Old Master Xu thought they really don’t like the idea.
“No.” Second Uncle Xu could see that Old Master Xu was upset and hurriedly said, “I was afraid that we wouldn’t be able to take care of you properly.”
“What’s wrong with taking care of me? You are my son, it’s only right for you to take care of me. I don’t have any objections, do you any objections?” Old Master Xu said bitterly, “Yanwen and Jiayue took care of me last night. They can do it, but you can’t do it?”
This was a serious situation they were in, so Second Madam Xu hurriedly pulled Second Uncle Xu’s clothes and reminded him to remember their purpose of coming here, then said obediently, “We can do it, we can do it. Dad don’t worry, we will take care of you. Okay, I will stay and take care of you today.”
For the sake of Old Master’s Xu inheritance, to make him happy, and to make sure he knew their presence, even if she doesn’t know how to take good care of him, she would try. They couldn’t let Old Master Xu only remember Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue’s goodness, no matter what, Second Uncle Xu was still his son, also they still had their son, Xu Yanlin, so they have to fight more for Xu Yanlin’s future.
Old Master Xu also does not go deep into the real reason why they stay to take care of him, he didn’t have that too much energy to talk to them now, as long as they stayed.
“Yanwen, you and Jiayue will go back to the apartment to rest tonight. I have your second uncle and second aunt to take care of me, so you don’t have to work so hard. You also have to go to work.” Older generation was always concerned about the younger generation even after they become independent, this concern was never gone. Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue were actually very worried after knowing that Old Master Xu was sick, these young people were sincere to him and he didn’t want them to work too hard, anyway, there was Second Uncle Xu and his wife now, he could order these people around so there was no need for Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue to accompany him.
Second Madam Xu wanted to earn goodwill in front of Old Master Xu, so she said to Xue Jiayue and Xu Yanwen in a good-tempered manner, “Old Master Xu is right, you go back first.”
Xue Jiayue didn’t have a good impression of Second Madam Xu, as a mother, Second Madam Xu has a lot of contributions to Xu Yanlin’s growth. Seeing how naughty he was, speaking ill of Xue Jiayue behind her back, saying that Xue Jiayue was a wild girl picked up by Old Master Xu and letting her marry Xu Yanwen was simply stupid, and that Old Master Xu was old and confused treating the wild girl well and even saying that he couldn’t wait to give his money to others!
“Grandpa, I want to stay with you.” Xue Jiayue couldn’t rest assure that Second Uncle Xu and Second Madam Xu could take care of Old Master Xu. God knows if they would do things seriously, nor would they do something wrong or worst say something unpleasant making Old Master Xu angry.
Old Master Xu was very fond of Xue Jiayue, and could tell what she was thinking just by looking at her, smiling he said. “It’s okay, you go back with Yanwen, I still have A’Zhen and the doctors and nurses guarding here, it’s fine, you can come back tomorrow.”
After saying this, he said to Xu Yanwen. “You still haven’t brought Jiayue back, it is already so late, go back to rest early.”
Xu Yanwen of course knew what Old Master Xu had in mind, and when Old Master Xu told them to go back to the apartment, he complied with Old Master Xu’s wishes, took Xue Jiayue’s hand, and said goodbye to Old Master Xu, “Grandpa, then we’ll go back first, and come back to see you tomorrow.”
Old Master Xu glanced at the intertwined hands of Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue and was very satisfied. He knew that the relationship of these two would get better and better, even after Xu Yanwen told him that he only regard Xue Jiayue as a younger sister, but who said you won’t develop feelings for your sister? He knew that if given time Xu Yanwen would later form an affection for his so-called younger sister. And looking at the closeness of the two now, his wish may be realized sooner.
“Go.” Old Master Xu waved his hand, wishing he could let Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue go quickly.
Xu Yanwen pulled Xue Jiayue’s hand, so the latter had no choice but to say goodbye to Old Master Xu followed by Xu Yanwen, they also said goodbye to Second Uncle Xu and his wife before they left the ward.
Second Madam Xu stared at the back of Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue’s hands’ holding as they leave, and a glint of resentment flashes through her eyes. When did Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue’s relationship become this good? Didn’t Xu Yanwen wish he could hide from Xue Jiayue as far as he could? When did Xu Yanwen’s attitude towards Xue Jiayue change? No, if Xu Yanwen and Xue Jiayue get closer, what about her plan? She couldn’t let them both get their way!
Xu Yanwen, who was leading Xue Jiayue away, had no idea what was running in Second Madam Xu’s mind. At the moment, he only felt that the hand holding Xue Jiayue was very soft and wanted to keep holding it like this for a long, long time.
