Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heiress - Chapter 1432
Si Yiyan’s hypnotic skills were coarse, but he managed to hypnotize her when she was fatigued and oblivious. However, it was hard to strike a balance with her main consciousness. Hence, she did not sleep well and only slipped into a daze because of the sleep-inducing aromatherapy incense. She was sometimes awake and sometimes blur.
Whenever she wanted to wake up, she would hear a clear and refined voice whispering into her ear, “Go to sleep, go to sleep…”
The voice seemed to be able to delve deep into her uneasy soul to caress and comfort it, making her feel extremely peaceful and joyous.
At last, she fell asleep again because of the addictive gentle voice.
Wen Xinya was stuck in a daze and remained half-awake for the rest of the night.
By the time she woke up again, it was already daybreak and the sun was shining brightly, signifying that the weather was fair that day.
The gloomy and negative emotions within Wen Xinya seemed to have vanished too. Although she did not have that peaceful of a sleep, she got some rest, at the very least. Although Wen Xinya was not refreshed, she was rather energetic.
The thought of Old Mr. Mo, who fought a tough battle with death last night, made her spring out of bed and rush out in a bid to find out about his condition. However, she accidentally caught a glimpse of the note left on the bedside cabinet.
“Old Mr. Mo is doing well and his condition is stable. He’s currently undergoing a checkup, don’t worry!” The words were written in a rounded and clear subscript, each stroke being full of dominance and power. Only Si Yiyan was capable of such handwriting.
Wen Xinya finally felt relieved and a smile graced her face.
However, she was still rather worried because she had yet to see Old Mr. Mo in person. Hence, she eagerly got out of bed, freshened up and headed to Old Mr. Mo’s intensive care unit.
She carefully observed the expression of the doctors who were in the midst of conducting a checkup for Old Mr. Mo. Although their faces were not any less tense than yesterday, they did not look that gloomy. She reckoned that Old Mr. Mo should be doing well after a night of observation.
“Xinya, how’s your Grandpa?” At this moment, an old voice sounded from behind.
Wen Xinya turned around to see Old Mr. Wen striding towards her quickly. She hurriedly held onto his arm and said, “Grampy’s condition is stable now, but he still needs to continue staying in the intensive care unit for further observation until about ten at night. He can only be transferred to a normal ward after it’s confirmed that his life is out of danger.”
Although Old Mr. Mo’s life was not completely out of danger, Wen Xinya was not as tensed up as she was yesterday.
Old Mr. Wen heaved a sigh of relief and said with a smile, “Great, great. I’m relieved to hear that your Grampy is alright!”
Although the Wen Family and Mo Family had grown distant because of Mo Yunyao’s death, Old Mr. Wen and Old Mr. Mo used to be the best of friends and Old Mr. Wen had always been worried about the latter’s health.
Wen Xinya held onto Old Mr. Wen’s trembling hand and tried to comfort him. “Grandpa, Grampy is blessed by Heaven. He will be alright, don’t worry!”
After a long night, she developed confidence in Old Mr. Mo’s recovery.
Holding her hand, Old Mr. Mo said with a sullen expression, “What’s wrong with you, child? You didn’t even inform me of such a major issue. Do you know how worried I was about you and your Grampy?”
He only knew about Old Mr. Mo’s life being in critical danger four hours after he was sent for emergency rescue. Wen Xinya was the person whom he was most worried about and hence, he tried to call her several times, only to discover that he could not reach her. He was rather anxious.
Later on, he received a call from Si Yiyan, who informed him about Old Mr. Mo’s condition as well as Wen Xinya. He also told him that the hospital had been on lockdown because of the bunch of reporters and enthusiastic citizens crowding outside the hospital. He then told Old Mr. Wen to wait for further news at home.
He felt extremely embarrassed, for he had been convinced by a greenhorn chap, despite having lived in power for decades.
Feeling a little guilty and remorseful, Wen Xinya exclaimed, “Grampy, I’m sorry. I… didn’t think that much at that time!”
When Wen Xinya found out about the lapse, all she could think about was Old Mr. Mo’s condition, after which she was sunk into a somber mood and a state of devastation. Hence, she didn’t think of informing Old Mr. Wen.
“I’m not trying to blame you, but remember, from now on, I’ll always be by your side to support you regardless of what happens,” said Old Mr. Wen, who was not actually angry. He understood that Wen Xinya must have been at a loss for what to do when Old Mr. Mo suffered a sudden attack and too worried to remember anything else.
He was just feeling sorry for her and had no idea how she pulled through those seven hours of being grief-stricken and worried about Old Mr. Mo. Although it had been years since she returned to the Wen Family, she was still used to handling and keeping everything to herself. That made Old Mr. Wen feel extremely guilty.
Throughout the years, she had never once depended on him, nor did he give her much support ever since she returned to the Wen Family.
Hanging her head low, Wen Xinya said with a desirable attitude, “I know, Grandpa. This is my mistake.”
Regardless of how distant the Mo and Wen families may be, she ought to have informed Old Mr. Wen about what happened. Yet, she completely forgot about it. Hence, it was her fault.
Old Mr. Wen began to feel less worried after seeing that she seemed to be in better spirits, though she was still rather pale. “Don’t be too worried. When you’re old, you tend to be plagued with all sorts of ailments. As the old saying goes, Hades doesn’t take away the lives of 73-year-olds and 84-year-olds. Your Grampy is 73 years old this year. If he can survive this, he will definitely live a long life. Even Hades’ helpers can’t take him away.”
He had always known that Old Mr. Mo was in poor health and he had only begun getting healthier after Wen Xinya returned to the Wen Family home and started nursing his body back to health. It was fortunate for them to be able to live until their seventies, given how old they were.
“Grandpa, Grampy will definitely make it through this ordeal.” Wen Xinya had heard of the saying before. The 73-year-old benchmark was like a gateway that would allow one to live until 84 years old if he were to be able to make it through this one.
Of course, it was not certain that it would be that way.
It was just a theory that many believed in.
Old Mr. Wen patted her on the shoulder.
He could more or less understand Wen Xinya’s feelings. Old Mr. Mo was the first person to accept, approve and defend Wen Xinya when she returned to the Wen Family, and Old Mr. Mo’s teachings were the reason she had become who she was today. Hence, she definitely shared a special relationship with Old Mr. Mo.
She relied on him and they shared a bond that could not be broken. Because blood was thicker than water.
