To stand in Xu Yanwen’s shoes, Xue Jiayue understood why he felt reluctant to go back to see his grandpa.
In fact, Xu Yanwen used to company the original back to their old house several times before, but whenever they were there, Grandpa Xu would ask Xu Yanwen when they could have a baby .
For Xu Yanwen, it's really a problem that could not be solved. As was known, Xu Yanwen didn’t love the original, and only took her as his sister. They had been sleeping in different bedrooms since they married, so how could they ever have their own biological children?
Of course impossible.
Later, Xu Yanwen began to find excuses to escape going back with the original, but asked her to go back first indtead. After that, he would find some time to visit his grandpa alone. In this way, he avoided the difficult and embarrassing question of being asked repeatedly in front of the original.
Xue Jiayue felt pity for Xu Yanwen and and understood his suffering being pressed so much by his grandpa. If it were she, she would also refuse to have any children with someone she didn’t love.
Thankfully, even if Xu Yanwen didn't want to accompany her back to the old house, he found an excuse of being busy at work, which not only helped her avoid embarrassment, but also gave her enough face.
Were the original here tonight, she would fight with him and go back to the old house tomorrow to tearfully complain to Grandpa Xu about it.
However, Xue Jiayue was not that kind of willful person. Since Xu Yanwen was not willing to accompany her back, she would never force him to do so. She would just go back on her own, anyway.
After fully reviewing the entire story, Xue Jiayue understood why Xu Yanwen just now escaped into his bedroom at his Grandpa’s news. He was afraid that she might struggle with him again about the matter.
‘Ha, ha, how can I be so boring?’ Xue Jiayue thought to herself.
She went over to knock at Xu Yanwen’s bedroom door and informed him in a peaceful tone, “Tomorrow I’ll go back to the old house by myself. You’ll just mind your own business and I’ll explain it to Grandpa.”
There was no response in the room, and she was not sure if he had heard her.
However, Xue Jiayue didn't want herself to be misunderstood. After a pause, she explained, "I'm serious. Don't worry. If you have something to do, just do it. I can manage everything in the old house. Grandpa won't blame you or be angry with you."
There was still no response coming out. Xue Jiayue curled her mouth thinking that Xu Yanwen would not respond to her, so she said good night and turned to her bedroom to sleep.
Just then, however, the door behind her opened. Xu Yanwen came out and called, “Jiayue.”
Xue Jiayue stopped and turned around with a reply, "Well?"
Xu Yanwen's eyes fell on Xue Jiayue's face. She looked really calm. Unlike before, when he refused to accompany her back, she would not hesitate to complain and even fight with him . However, everything in front of him at the moment made him a little bit unaccustomed.
“Well, tomorrow, you just try to company my grandpa and have a good chat with him. He is not well. Please take care of him for me and ask him to remember to take medicine…” He was a little wordy at the moment.
Xue Jiayue nodded and replied with an OK gesture, "No problem, Grandpa Xu is so kind to me. He is just like my grandfather. Of course, I will take good care of him."
Xu Yanwen frowned at Xue Jiayue’s response. He found from what Xue Jiayue said just now that she meant to clarify the relationship between them. However, he didn't feel any relaxed. Instead, he had a strange feeling.
Xue Jiayue knew nothing about the change in Xu Yanwen’s heart. She waved her hand and said casually, “It’s late. I’ll go to bed. Good night.”
Xu Yanwen stood there motionless, watching Xue Jiayue. She pushed open her bedroom door, walked in, turned around, waved to him with a smile and then closed the bedroom door.
A sound “ click “ came over, and Xu Yanwen returned to his senses.
The next day, Xue Jiayue did go back to the old house by herself.
Grandpa Xu’s face fell upon seeing only Xue Jiayue coming back. Angrily, he asked what was going on,
“Where is that bad boy? Why didn’t he come back with you?” He was so annoyed by Xu Yanwen’s disobedience that he didn't seem to be scolding his own grandson, but his grandson-in-law.
Xue Jiayue quickly went forward, took his arm, helped him to sit on the sofa nearby, and coaxed him with a smile, “
"Grandpa, don't be angry. It is bad for your health. Brother Xu really has something to do today. He is attending a very important meeting. He specially asked me to tell you this, or he will come back with me."
Formerly, if Xu Yanwen didn’t come back with the original, she would surely complain about it in front of Grandpa Xu.
But today Xue Jiayue was different. She didn’t file a complaint. Instead, she helped Xu Yanwen to explain the reason. Her attitude changed so greatly that Grandpa Xu believe that that Xu Yanwen didn't come back because of his busy work, rather than hiding from him.
But still he demanded again, “Is he really that busy?”
Xue Jiayue nodded seriously and went on lying, “Brother Xu is working overtime these days. He needs to work late at night. The company has a lot of business. He works very hard. "
"You don't have to put in a good word for that jerk. Can I still not know him?" Grandpa Xu snorted discontentedly.
Judging from the look on Grandpa Xu's face, Xue Jiayue knew that although he detested Xu Yanwen orally, he was genuinely fond of him in his heart. After all, Xu yanwen was his own grandson and his most capable and outstanding grandson.
"Grandpa, Brother Xu works really hard. He manages such a big company. In recent years, he has doubled the company's scale. He is really capable and amazing. Not everyone can do such a good job." Xue Jiayue continued to praise Xu Yanwen.
At last, Gangpa Xu took her by the hand and patted on it lightly while saying, "I know, I know, Yanwen is capable, and you care about him. I just hope you two are fine, and I'll be relieved."
Xue Jiayue did not want Grandpa Xu to worry about them. She treated him like her own grandfather and tried to make him happy, "Grandpa, you can rest assured, I am fine. I can eat and sleep, and I am very strong!"
Grandpa Xu was amused and laughed happily. Every corners of the living room was instantly filled with joyful laughter.
“Why are you laughing so happily?” suddenly a boy’s voice was heard.
Xue Jiayue followed the voice and when she saw clearly who the boy was coming from the door, she was shocked.
It was Xu Yanlin, Uncle Xu’s youngest son. Though he was only ten, he had been spoiled to be lawless since childhood. The only person who he was a little bit afraid in the family was Xu Yanwen. In front of Xu Yanwen, he would try to restrain himself, but behind him, he was a real little devil. What annoyed the original was that enjoyed himself by disturbing her.
Xue Jiayue remembered the plot in the original book. The little devil once deliberately came to the original and stole something from her bag. The original was very angry and tried to take it back. Grandpa Xu came over to stop their fight, but both of them refused. In the chaos, Grandpa Xu was accidentally pushed down the stairs, causing his leg injured and was sent into hospital.
Hearing this news, Xu Yanwen was very angry and scolded the original. The original felt wronged and quarreled with him . Xu Yanwen was very disappointed with her and his family affection for her wore off too ...
At the moment, Grandpa Xu saw Xu Yanlin and frowned, "Why are you here alone? What are your parents doing? "
Xu Yanlin was not afraid of Grandpa Xu. He knew though Grandpa Xu was severe, he doted on him as his parents, so he answered casually, "Playing! Who the hell knows where they are playing?”.
Grandpa’s face fell and shouted, “Why did you talk like this?”
“Grandpa,” Xu Yanlin laughed. Grandpa Xu returned him a stare.
But he didn’t care. He turned to Xue Jiayue, curled his lips and then asked, “Xue Jiayue, why are you back? Come to complain in front of Grandpa?”
Xue Jiayue stared at the little devil in front of her, and, without knowing why, she was overwhelmed by a sudden feeling of uneasiness...
