She turned to him with a searching look and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Have you thought about how you’re going to introduce me later?” he asked.
She was stunned for a moment but quickly replied, “I’m going to introduce you as my boyfriend, of course.”
“Okay,” Jackson smiled gently, “Let’s go, then”
The two then got out of the car. Serenity walked up to the door and knocked on it. Not long afterward, the door opened, but the person she was greeted by was not her grandmother. Instead, it was her aunt, Theresa.
Theresa’s expression tumed shifty as soon as she recognized Serenity
“Oh!” she cried. “So it’s you, Serenity! Why, you’ve even brought along another guest!!
As she spoke, she glanced outside, but when she saw a humble car parked outside, her gaze toward Serenity was instantly filled with a trace of mockery,
Everyone had assumed that this niece of hers had managed to nab a rich man for herself. After all, Serenity had even been rescued by a chivalrous man from Felix Foster’s house back then! Yet judging from the car parked outside, it appeared that the rumors were false after all since it was definitely not an expensive car. Theresa was sure because she could recognize quite a few logos of those luxury cars
And as for the man following behind this niece of hers, while she had to admit that he was indeed a very attractive man, looks meant nothing to a man. He might even be one of those useless pretty men who lacked any substance whatsoever underneath!
Besides, this man had most likely not even found out that her niece used to be in prison!
“Yes,” said Serenity, “I’m here to see Grandma. How is she?”
She had heard earlier that her uncles and aunt took turns taking care of her grandmother. Seeing Aunt Theresa here must mean that it was her tum today.
“Your grandmother still isn’t able to eat or sleep that well,” Theresa replied as the three walked into the living room. sleeping in her bedroom right now,”
Lynette Blossom, Theresa’s daughter, was sitting in the living room, watching the television while munching on popcom. She was about to throw some cutting comments at Serenity as soon as she saw her, but she was then distracted when she saw Jackson, who was right beside Serenity. Her eyes were instantly fixed on him, and she found it hard to look away.
Serenity turned to Jackson and told him, “Why don’t you sit here and wait for me while I go to my grandma’s room to see her?
“Okay,” Jackson replied before pulling up a chair and gracefully sitting down. His gestures were bold and unreserved yet without seeming inappropriate or impolite.
Serenity then turned and left for her grandmother’s room while Lynette was still aggressively sizing up Jackson.
Lynette felt that this man looked like he had just stepped out of a painting even when be just sat quietly there doing nothing. Yet when she tried to talk to him, she only managed to open her mouth, but before she could utter a word, she had to stay quiet because she was intimidated by his impressive aura.
It felt as if she could only stare at him from afar but never get any closer to him at all.
Meanwhile, Serenity went into her grandmother’s room. She did not see her grandfather there, and only her grandmother was lying in bed and sleeping. It looked like she had gotten even thinner since she had last seen her.
As Serenity watched ler frail old grandmother, she had an inexplicable feeling that her grandmother was at the end of her life. Perhaps it was because her grandmother really was old now. No matter how vivacious and full of life the grandmother in her memories was, it was clear now that as the years went by, especially after she had fallen seriously ill, that she probably only had a few years left.
If her grandmother only had one year left to live, she really had to cherish this year to the fullest!
Serenity stayed in the rooms for a while before quietly leaving. She had no wish to disturb her grandmother’s sleep. Besides, she could just wait for her grandmother to wake up outside and talk to her then.
When she returned to the living room, she was greeted by the sight of Jackson sitting on the same chair, leisurely scrolling through his plane.
