Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 295
Passing the many police officers and soldiers, Lu Tian squeeze his way to get to his wife.
Seeing how she is already here, he knows that it must have been Uncle Nuo who contacted her. However, how is he suppose to tell her that grandmother Nuo was held at gun point?
Knowing that she is the leader of Fate, who knows what she will do.
As he thought of what he should say to her, Yue Ling is oblivious of his thoughts.
She stares at the tall man who is walking closer and closer to her.
Should she stay or should she leave?
If she leaves, Lu Tian will find her suspicious.
If she stays, her yeye will be suspicious.
Good lord, what is she suppose to now?
Slowly, she close her eyes and take a deep breath. Once she quickly steady herself, she takes a step and walk toward Lu Tian.
Looking pass Lu Tian, she sees that her yeye did not follow behind.
She sighs in relief inside and smiles at him with her hand waving lightly. With so many people in the hospital hallway, there's not way her yeye saw her.
Lu Tian stops in front of his wife and seeing her smile so sweetly at him, his cold demeanor from earlier disappears and is replace with one of a worry, yet doting husband.
Just seeing her smile is enough to make his mind go crazy.
Reaching his hand out, he holds her hand. His movement was like it is the most natural thing to do, despite all the people around.
"Why are you here? The premises is still dangerous."
Hearing his words of worry for her, she shook her head and smiles again.
"It's alright. Uncle Nuo informed me, so I had to come."
Yue Ling squeeze his hand around her hand and just when she wanted to ask him what happened on the roof, she suddenly sees her yeye and Zhong Yang walking towards them.
She inhales a deep breath and let's go Lu Tian's hand. There is no possible way she can tell her yeye about this.
Well, she can, but no one knows that she is the great General Ji's granddaughter. From young until now, they've kept it hidden. Not only that, she hasn't confirm with her yeye if she can tell this secret to someone like Lu Tian.
As she tries to move her hand away, Lu Tian senses this and the space between his brows crease into three lines. He looks down at their interlock hands and he couldn't help but feel like his wife is acting strange.
However, not putting much thought into it, he tightens his grip on her small hand.
He has no intentions of letting go of her hand.
"Yue Ling, what's wrong?"
Hearing him as her this, she looks up at him and she could feel unwanted sweat forming on her forehead.
She open her mouth to speak, but every word she wants to say is not able to come out.
Looking away from the handsome devil face, she looks back to her yeye, who is only a few feet away from them.
She press her lip tightly together and her shoulders begin to slouch as if wanting to hide.
Moving closer to him, she tries to hide her figure from view and whisper to Lu Tian.
"Tian, I need to--"
Yue Ling is rooted to the ground with her entire being dumbfounded. Before she could finish her words, it was as if her yeye had read her intentions and purposely interrupt her.
Stopping in front of the couple, Old man Ji's expression remain as calm as ever. He holds his hands behind his back and looks straight at Lu Tian. However, behind that expression, he is grinning from ear to ear. If it was not for Yue Ling's secret identity, he would of burst into laughter without a care. Of course, he cannot do that, because they have not discuss about revealing her identity.
Behind the old man, Zhong Yang is even more dumbfounded. His eyes blink uncontrollably at how this old man is not giving his granddaughter any face at all.
Liu Shan who suddenly hears Old man Ji's voice is just as shocked. He looks at his boss who is trying to hide from her grandfather and he gulp in struggle. His only thought is, how is suppose to get her out of this mess?
Oblivious to all of this taking place right in front of him, Lu Tian turn around to the voice of the person who called him.
Seeing that it is Grandfather Ji, he nod politely at the old man.
"Grandfather Lu, is there something you need from me?"
Hearing this, Old man Ji shakes his head with his eyes close. However, he didn't forget to glance at his granddaughter, who is trying so hard to hide from him. Thinking of something, he decides to not act like he does not know her.
"Oh hoho, I was just on my way out, but I saw you here."
He wave his hand at Lu Tian and puts it behind his back again.
Lu Tian hears this and does not think much of it. The hospital exit is pass them, so it's only natural for grandfather Ji to bump into them.
"I see, then do take care. If you need any help with the case involving Doctor Xie, just give me a call."
Unlike Lu Tian, who is oblivious to what is going on, Yue Ling scoots closer to him and takes a small step to the side to have the man block her from view.
Seeing her small gesture that does not escape the eyes of her grandfather, Old man Ji acts like he does not see her. He pats Lu Tian on the shoulder and nod his head.
"Well then Lu boy, this old one will take leave first."
Saying this, he takes a step and leave. However....
"Eh? Who is this young lady hiding?"
Yue Ling: "..."
Yue Ling's legs turn weak as she lose her balance, but is quickly supported by Lu Tian.
Liu Shan: "....."
Liu Shan's figure turn sluggish and he spins around to give himself a face plant on the wall.
Zhong Yang: "....."
Zhong Yang's eyes roll back until his eyes turn white and he wish so badly to hit his forehead for his master's childish act.
Unlike the three of them, Old man Ji's eyes are open widely with one hand covering his mouth. He looks as if this is the greatest surprise in his entire years of living.
Still oblivious to all this, Lu Tian helps steady his wife. He is confuse as to why she would suddenly stumble, not only that, she is pregnant, so any small mishap is dangerous for her.
His brows furrow and a thought comes to his mind. He will have Xu Long investigate if there is any damage with the floors in the military hospital. He cannot let his wife come here if there are cracks.
However, when he remembers grandfather Ji's question, he move his hand holding his wife's hand and put his arm over her shoulder. Using little strength, he gently push Yue Ling towards the old man.
"Grandfather Ji, I want to introduce you to someone. This is my girlfriend, Han Yue Ling."
Yue Ling, Liu Shan, and Zhong Yang who still has not fully recover suddenly turn into slime.
The old man's childish act was already enough for them, yet, Lu Tian's answer is even more for them to handle.
Yue Ling looks at her grandfather and force a polite smile.
"Heh-Hello, I am Han Yue Ling."
Ignoring her expression and the two other people, Old man Ji looks at Yue Ling. His eyes stare coldly at her like how he looks at other people when meeting.
"So this is the girl."
He cannot let Lu Tian know that they are related. He keeps a straight face and stroke his chin as he nod his head.
"Not bad. Not bad at all."
Hearing his words, Lu Tian looks down at his wife. Seeing how she looks like a scared kitty, he sigh inside.
He knows that grandfather Ji is an intimidating person due to his status, but once you get to know the old man, he isn't so scary.
Gently, he squeeze Yue Ling's shoulder. His small gesture is to assure her that she does not need to be afraid.
Doing so, he looks back at the old man and smile a smile so small that if one does not look closely, they would not have seen it.
"Grandfather Ji, when I have time, I will bring Yue Ling to visit you."
He is sure that once grandfather Ji gets to know Yue Ling, he will receive the old man's blessing.
Also, there's no way the old man will force him to marry his granddaughter, Ji Chu Hua.
In a different mindset from Lu Tian, Yue Ling shoots a look at her yeye and she gives him a deadly glare. Her eyes as if saying, Is this so fun to you?
Of course, Old man Ji sees her glare, but he is not bother by it at all. His eyes wonder around as if he does not know her and he fakes a cough.
"Well, this old one must get going."
Saying this, he does not wait for the young ones to reply and he takes his leave.
As he walks pass the couple, he quickly glance at Yue Ling and put his hands behind his back. Walking away, he acts as if nothing had happen and following after him is Zhong Yang who looks apologetically at Yue Ling.
Old man Ji's glance was so quick that even the attentive Lu Tian was not able to catch it. This is because Lu Tian is now focusing on his wife.
However, Yue Ling was different. She saw that quick glance and knows it better than anyone.
It is her yeye's way of saying,
'You owe me big time and an explanation.'
