Guan Tang nodded slightly. “Aunty, I understand. Don’t worry, I’ll do my best to help you.”
Guan Ning looked at Guan Tang and said, “Helping me is also helping yourself. Our surname is Guan, and we’re family.”
Guan Tang nodded again.
After Guan Ning left, Guan Tang heaved a sigh of relief. Everyone wanted to use her; she was born to be a chess piece. At this time, she felt much more at ease. It had been so long, but the police did not come to look for her. There was no movement at all, indicating that Jiahui did not report the matter to the police. What she was most concerned about was Jiahui’s whereabouts and how Jiahui had escaped. There were no traces at all; it was as though everything had been a dream.
Jiang Jin looked at her four grandchildren, Mu Chen; Cheng Che; Song Ning; and Jiahui, with a solemn expression on her face. After listening to their plan, she found it hard to remain calm. She asked Cheng Che, “You’re going to pretend to agree to return to the Yin family?”
“Yes, Grandma,” Cheng Che replied honestly.
“Why pretend?” Jiang Jin asked.
Cheng Che’s smile vanished from his face as he said, “Grandma, I know you hope I’ll acknowledge my family, but after interacting with them a few times, I always feel that they have ulterior motives. I don’t like being schemed against. I have no interest in the Yin family’s assets, but I need to know what they’re scheming.”
Jiang Jin thought about it for a moment before she finally nodded. Then, she looked at Mu Chen.
Upon seeing this, Mu Chen said gently, “Grandma, don’t worry. I’ll always keep an eye on him.”
Jiang Jin nodded before she looked at Jiahui and said, “It’s just that Jiahui will have to suffer. The Yin family insists on pushing Guan Tang to Cheng Che. I’m worried that Jiahui won’t be a match for those black-hearted people. After all, Jiahui comes from a scholarly family; she’s too innocent.”
Jiang Jin sighed softly as she looked at the two couples in front of her. She continued to say, “Everyone has their own paths to walk. No matter how much I love you and how much my heart aches for you, I can’t do anything to help you. At my age, I can only hope not to bring trouble to you. However, I hope that you’ll tell me about your plans. Don’t hide things from me. If there’s anything I can do to help, I’ll be more than happy to help.”
Song Ning smiled as she hugged Jiang Jin’s arm and said, “Grandma, don’t worry. How can we exclude you? You’re our backbone! You’re the only one who can give us advice when we’re in trouble.”
Jiang Jin smiled. “Ningning is still the best at coaxing people. You and Jiahui have to take care of yourselves. I don’t want any more instances of kidnapping. My heart can’t take it.”
The four of them chatted and laughed with Jiang Jin. This kind of happiness was something most families could not imagine.
Jiahui smiled as she asked, “Should we find a suitable occasion for me to come out and scare Guan Tang?”
Cheng reached out to stroke Jiahui’s hair as he said, “We’ll definitely deal with her. Just scaring her is letting her off too easily.”
Jiahui smiled. “Alright, I’ll listen to you. If you ask me to go east, I’ll never go west!”
Mu Chen and Song Ning laughed, finding Cheng Che and Jiahui’s interaction amusing.
Sometimes hardships were not completely bad. For example, after this kidnapping incident, Cheng Che and Jiahui’s relationship seemed to have grown even stronger than before. It seemed like they had both clearly seen their feelings for each other.
