And the grandmother seemed to be heading towards Su Wenlun’s house!
The moment that news travelled in the Su family, each and every one of the family members were shocked. All these years, the grandmother had never been to any one of her children’s place. Not only that, she even gave her word: if you want me to go to your house, make sure that you stay in Genting.
“Is grandma really going to Su Yimo’s house?”
“I can’t believe it! Who was the one that spread the rumour? It is just impossible!”
The youngsters of the Su family were getting active in their own chat group. No one believed that.
However, the moment the picture of the grandmother getting down the car was sent into the group, it turned silent right away.
They knew that the grandmother made her appearance this time to show Su Yimo her outmost sincerity. And Su Ruijin’s position in the company would definitely be affected.
After Su Wenlun and Jiang Yan found out what happened, they were stupefied and at loss of words. They thought that the grandmother wouldn’t come as well. But she showed up.
The cooperation with Rumo was of outmost importance to the Su family. It decided the family fate whether they could get themselves into the top tier or not. It was the greatest wish for the grandmother to move the Su family into Genting before passing away. Therefore, when she found out that Su Yimo was sick, she was just a cat on hot bricks. If Zhong Ji were to find another business partner, they wouldn’t be able to do anything.
Therefore, she must see to it personally in order to be restful.
The grandmother was already aged and it was just too much for her to climb the stairs.
Su Wenlun and Jiang Yan were waiting for her by the doorstep already. The moment they saw the grandmother, they hurried forward to escort her.
“Mum, why are you coming here personally? Just make the call and we will go over to your place!” Su Wenlun said.
“Exactly, mum. You should’ve just given us a call.” Jiang Yan followed along.
The old Madam couldn’t even catch her breath and her face turned completely pale.
“I am here to look for Yimo. I heard that she is sick.” the grandmother said.
Su Wenlun was frightened. Su Yimo was just pretending. What if the grandmother finds out?
He glared furiously at Han Jingru. This was all because of him!
Han Jingru simply looked unbothered. After the grandmother got inside the house, they served her a glass of water but she simply ignored them.
“Where is Yimo?” The moment she sat on the couch, the grandmother asked.
“She is sick and we are afraid that you might catch her disease. Therefore we asked her to stay in her room.” Jiang Yan said.
“She isn’t sick.” Han Jingru said suddenly.
That was like an atomic bomb drop.
What Han Jingru said almost made the husband and wife peed themselves. They were trying desperately to hide the truth but Han Jingru admitted it himself.
“Han Jingru, what nonsense are you spewing? Yimo is obviously sick!” Jiang Yan glared at Han Jingru furiously. He was the one that suggested her to fake a sickness. And now, he was also the one that admitted they were pretending. Was he trying to cause trouble?
“Mum, don’t listen to Han Jingru’s gibber. He knows nothing!” Su Wenlun said frightfully.
The grandmother looked at Han Jingru in annoyance and asked, “What do you mean by that?”
“Yimo was the person in charge for the project with Rumo. And she was the one that secured the contract. It doesn’t matter what Su Ruijin said but you were the one that made the final call to change the person in charge. Su Ruijin might be held responsible but you are ultimately at fault. Do you agree?” Han Jingru said indifferently.
“Han Jingru, who do you think you are? How dare you talk to grandma like that!?” Su Ruijin was almost on the verge of eruption.
Su Wenyi felt that all of the fine hairs on his body were standing straight. He was just a matrilocal man, how dared he find fault in the grandmother. Was he trying to court death?
“Han Jingru, nobody asked you to talk! You better disappear in front of me right now. Otherwise, don’t blame me for what I do!” Su Wenyi fumed.
“Grandma, Yimo is the only one that is able to handle this aftermath. What is your opinion on that?” It doesn’t matter how much tempered they showed, Han Jingru simply showed a composed manner.
The old Madam drew a deep breath and said, “What is the benefit of doing this? If you angered me, aren’t you afraid that I might give up on this project in anger and even chase you guys out from the Su family?”
“Of course that is one possibility. But with that happening, the loss the Su family is about to face is just astronomical. You will not do that.” Han Jingru said.
“Are you so confident that you could strong arm me?” The grandmother said.
“Grandma, I simply want you to treat Yimo fairly and I mean no harm. If there is any part that I offended you, please let me apologize right now.” Han Jingru said.
The grandmother smiled. Giving the dessert right after the slap, well done!
“Is this your idea? You have surprised me indeed.” The smile on the grandmother’s face slowly subsided and was replaced by a grim darkness. Su Yimo would never dare to challenge her like that. As for Su Wenlun and Jiang Yan, they wouldn’t even dare to breathe harder in front of her. Aside from Han Jingru, she couldn’t think of anyone that could come up with such an idea.
“I am simply doing this for the best interest of the Su family.” Han Jingru said.
For the Su family?
The old Madam’s Su family or Su Yimo’s Su family?
“Where is Yimo?” The grandmother asked.
And that time, Han Jingru’s phone rang. The moment he answered it, he turned on the loudspeaker.
“Jingru, I just spoke to Zhong Ji and he is willing to continue the business relationship.”
They heard Su Yimo’s sound from over the phone.
Su Wenlun and Jiang Yan were stunned. They didn’t even notice when did Su Yimo leaves the house.
“Grandma is at our place. I believe she would be elated when she hears this news.” Han Jingru said.
The grandmother forced a smile and said, “Yimo, thank you for the good work. Come to grandma’s house for dinner the day after tomorrow.”
“Thank you, grandma.”
The grandmother stood up and stared intently at Han Jingru, “Han Jingru, if you dare to covet our Su family’s fortune, I advise that you better drop that thought. Because I will never let that happen.”
“Grandma, please rest assured. I do not have the slightest interest towards the Su family’s asset.”
That much was just nothing in Han Jingru’s eyes. What could a second-tier family amount to?
After the grandmother walked away, Jiang Yan fumed at Han Jingru as she came into a sudden realization, “Han Jingru, is this what you planned together with Yimo? Do you know how dangerous it was!?”
“Mum, didn’t you enjoy it as well? After all these years, all of the humiliation you suffered from them, don’t you just want to vent it once in a while?” Han Jingru asked back.
Jiang Yan was stunned. He was right, she was secretly happy for what happened and Han Jingru had indirectly avenged her. If it wasn’t for the man’s plan, it was just impossible for the grandmother to come to their house.
“And from now onwards, none of the relatives from the Su family dares to belittle you guys. The project Su Yimo secured was able to give her an equal seat with Su Ruijin.” Han Jingru continued.
Jiang Yan was rendered speechless. Even if she wanted to pick bones, she just couldn’t find anything.
This episode was like a rock thrown into the lake amongst the Su family. Now that Su Yimo had secured her position as the person in charge, she would definitely earn prestige in the company. Those people, especially younger ladies that looked down on Su Yimo was just frustrated. They didn’t want to feel inferior to Su Yimo.
“Don’t worry about that, we still have the chance to marry into a prominent family. Remember those dowries? Even if it wasn’t from the Han family in Yan Jing, it must be someone of equal stature!”
“That’s right. Let us agree with each other and unite together. No matter who gets married into this Han family, we swear to protect our own sisters and we will not get closer with Su Yimo.”
“She is just a woman and the Su family will not fall into her hands. Don’t worry. Su Ruijin will come up with something against her.”
There was a sibling’s group chat without Su Yimo and they were brainstorming ways to sabotage Su Yimo.
When Su Yimo came home, the mother secretly asked the daughter into her room.
“Yimo, tell mum honestly. Are you hiding something from me?” Jiang Yan asked.
“Not at all. Why are you asking this all of a sudden?” Su Yimo was high strung but she showed a completely calmed expression.
“Why do I feel that Han Jingru turned into a complete different man? You didn’t see how he confronted your grandma earlier. I have never seen anyone who dares to talk to grandma that way at home!” Jiang Yan said.
Su Yimo smiled. Although she hadn’t seen Han Jingru’s act, the moment she heard the plan from her husband, she had gotten her fair share of fright. But she chose to believe the man. Now she was proven right.
“Mum, nevertheless, this is good news to our family.”
