Chapter 704: Reacceptance
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
"Xinghe, can you follow Grandpa to the study?" Elder Shen requested kindly. Even though Xinghe was only his newly accepted granddaughter, he treated her as his own. Despite his reacceptance of Tong Yan, his attitude towards Xinghe hadn't changed.
Xinghe nodded and she brought Ali along with her to the study.
Tong Yan watched them leave with an innocent smile on her face, not one trace of resentment was visible. However, the moment they turned the corner, her face changed.
Chui Ying patted her on the back of her palm and consoled, "Little Yan, don't be impatient, this is a slow battle. Today is already a good start, Grandfather Shen has accepted you again. Remember to keep this going or else all our effort will be wasted."
Tong Yan took in a deep breath and replied, "Ying Ying, don't worry, I know what to do. I will act according to your plan because it is definitely working! I've come to find Grandpa so many times, but not once did he want to see me. Yet this time, he really did soften his attitude towards me. I will continue to suffer that b*tch and will not let our effort go to waste."
Chui Ying smiled smugly. "Haven't I told you my plan will work? Facing a calculative b*tch like this Xia Xinghe, you have to more patient than she is. The person that remains will be the winner, so from now on, your only homework is to be a good girl in front of Grandfather Shen and leave the rest to me."
"Ying Ying, you're the best! Without you, I wouldn't know what to do…" Tong Yan grabbed Chui Ying's hands with appreciation. Her heart was filled with conceit because she was right to find Chui Ying to come help her!
Chui Ying would help her chase Xia Xinghe away. The day she managed to kick Xinghe out the door and reclaim everything she owned was getting close and it made glee bubble up in her heart. She couldn't wait for that day to come. However, she didn't prepare for the fact that Xinghe was Elder Shen's biological granddaughter…
Xinghe followed Elder Shen into the study. He first enquired about her journey at Country R before getting into the search.
Xinghe replied softly, "I've found some clues and I will reveal everything to you after I receive more confirmation."
Elder Shen was beyond happy. "Really? What clues‽"
Xinghe shook her head. "I don't want to bring your hope up for nothing, please believe in me for now."
"Of course I will." Elder Shen waved his hand and said, "I have full faith in your ability, but I still have to remind you, your safety is more important than the search. If the thing is too dangerous, don't rush headfirst into it, you must come back to discuss it with us first."
"I will." Xinghe nodded before she raised her eyes to look at him. She couldn't help herself but ask, "Grandfather, do you really plan to reaccept Shen Ru and Tong Yan?"
Elder Shen didn't think Xinghe would be interested in such matters, so he was shocked when she asked such a question.
He looked at her and sighed. "It is impossible to mend bridges like nothing ever happened. However, no matter what, I can't just pretend that they don't exist, decades of relationships couldn't be removed just like that. At least for now, I will still treat them as my family, but beyond that, I don't think I will be able to."
Actually, it was not that he didn't want to, but he couldn't because it would be so unfair to his estranged daughter and he would never forgive what the Lin family did to them. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
