COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 5 - Season 9 Episode 72
Hyson’s mission was accomplished so he went back home in a good mood. Humming a tune, with his usual smile plastered on his face. But when he entered, he suddenly screamed startling everyone. From the family members to the house help whoever heard the scream ran to his side.
“Young Master, what happened?”
“Young Master, did you get hurt?”
“Young Master, where is it uncomfortable?”
“Young Master, you should take a seat. I’ll bring some water for you.”
Hyson’s mouth spasmed when he was faced with his scene. He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at this scene. But he couldn’t blame these people for reacting this way. They were strictly ordered to take care of the one and only little Prince of the Xiang family. If anything happened to him and they were careless, surely they’d be losing this job.
“Fai!” Even Xiang Weimin was alarmed and came out from the study. “What’s going on?”
Hyson scratched his head, “Ge, it’s nothing.”
“Then why did you scream?” asked Xiang Weimin keeping an eye on Hyson.
Hyson bit his lip before saying, “Oh, Brother Shuyi gave me a peace talisman. I had to bring it to Ellie but I forgot and came back home straight. When I recalled it, I ended up screaming.” Looking at the worried faces of the house help around him, he smiled sheepishly, “Sorry for alarming you all! You can get back to whatever you’re doing.”
All of them breathes a sigh of relief and said, “As long as you’re fine, Young Master.”
Hyson pursed his lips and looked over at Xiang Weimin, “Ge, that scream was unintentional. Sorry for disturbing you.”
Xiang Weimin walked up to him and said, “You didn’t disturb me.”
“Then I have to rush now,” said Hyson. “I should go to Ellie and deliver what is entrusted to me.”
“How about you give it to me?” suggested Xiang Weimin. Hyson raised his brow at him and he replied, “I have to go to the hospital for a checkup tomorrow. While I’m at it, I’ll bring it with me. It’ll save you a trip.”
Hyson stared at Xiang Weimin for a long while in silence. Xiang Weimin never thought he’d be bothered by silence this much. He had always been the silent one and it never bothered him. So, why was he getting so anxious right now facing Hyson’s silence?
“Ge, just say you need a reason to see your sister,” said Hyson straightforwardly. “I won’t laugh at you.” Saying that he even pulled out the peace talisman and placed it in Xiang Weimin’s hand, “You take it and give it to her yourself.”
Of course, Hyson knows that saving him a trip was all nonsense. Especially since this trip was to go over and see Raelle. How could Hyson be upset about that? But seeing how Xiang Weimin was actually using whatever he could do to get a chance to see Raelle, he didn’t mind providing this chance to him.
Xiang Weimin held the talisman in his hand and looked at Hyson, “Does she believe in it?”
“No,” answered Hyson.
Xiang Weimin nodded his head and strode inside the house. Hyson followed behind him leisurely. While Xiang Weimin took a left turn to enter the living room, Hyson took a right turn to enter the kitchen. Seeing him, the kitchen staff stopped working.
“Continue! I just to have some juice.”
One of them hurriedly poured the freshly squeezed fruit juice before him and informed him, “This is fresh. You can have it.”
“Thank you!” Hyson happily took the glass. “By the way, where is my mother?”
“Ms. Yue is in her work room,” answered the staff.
“Oh,” was all Hyson said as he nodded his head.
Holding the glass of juice, he walked out. No wonder his mother didn’t even come to check up on him. His scream didn’t reach her at all. And seeing how silent the house was, it was obvious that Mu Chenyan hadn’t come back home yet.
He came to the sitting room and sat down with Xiang Weimin as he pouted, “Ge, where is Opa? Is he still resting?”
“Hm,” Xiang Weimin replied with a hum. “I went to see him during lunch. He looked really tired for some reason.”
“He took Ellie’s accident very seriously,” replied Hyson. “Although seeing you, Major, and your father did bring him the happiness of seeing his family together, it couldn’t suppress the impact of Raelle’s condition.”
“Grandfather is really attached to Raelle, it’s not surprising,” stated Xiang Weimin seriously.
“Yes, he is way too attached to her,” agreed Hyson. “But if his health continued to deteriorate because of her…” He tsked to himself, “She won’t be okay with that.”
“He said he is old and it’s normal for old people to be sick,” said Xiang Weimin.
Hyson looked at him carefully but didn’t continue this topic any further. Of course, he knew that Grandfather Xiang was old but knowing was one thing, and accepting it was a whole different matter.
Xiang Weimin clicked his fingers in front of Hyson’s face snapping him out of his daydreaming. “Where are you lost?”
“I’m not lost,” answered Hyson. “I’m a grown-up now. It’s not that easy to get lost.”
“That means you used to get lost usually in the past?”
“Sadly, yes,” replied Hyson.
“Where were you all day?” asked Xiang Weimin.
“I was setting up your sister with her partner,” said Hyson.
“Oh? So, did it work?”
“Don’t look down on me, Ge!” said Hyson. “How can anything fail when I’m overlooking it?”
Xiang Weimin laughed and tousled Hyson’s hair saying, “Yes, yes. I shouldn’t underestimate you. Even Grandfather said I shouldn’t underestimate the little prince of our family.”
Hyson got a little shy when he heard that, “Ge, you don’t call me the little prince.”
“Why not?” retorted Xiang Weimin. “You’re the youngest in the family. Isn’t it your right to be called the little prince?”
Hyson pursed his lips before his lips curled into a small arc.
