Jackson bent down a little and asked softly in Serenity’s car, “Is it?”
Serenity was speechless. How could she answer that?
Granny sighed and held her granddaughter’s hand. “You have to hurry up or I’m afraid I won’t be able to attend your wedding
Serenity was stunned. When her grandmother held her hand, she realized that her grandmother was much thinner than before. She could feel the bones in her grandmother’s fingers with a light grip.
It was as if there was only a thin layer of skin wrapped around her grandmother’s bones, without any flesh.
Granny… had aged more than she expected.
Serenity felt a pang of sadness, and it showed on her face.
“Hey, why are you looking sad again?” Granny gently patted the back of Serenity’s hand and said, “I’m glad to see that you’re living well and there’s someone taking care of you. I wouldn’t know how to face your mother after 1 die otherwise.”
“Granny, don’t say that!” Serenity rebuked anxiously. Superstition or not, she was really scared that her grandmother would suddenly leave her. Her grandmother was the only person in the world who treated her as family!
“Fine, fine, I won’t talk about it. I’ll make sure to stay alive for a few more years so that I can watch you get married. Hopefully, I can watch you give birth to a child too,” Granny said with a smile.
Serenity finally felt more at ease. She brought over the pastries she bought for her grandmother.
The three of them chatted as they ate. Granny asked Jackson some questions about his family. When she heard that Jackson’s only family left was his grandfather, that his father had passed away, and that his mother had left him when he was young. she could not help but sympathize with him.
*Your experience is rather similar to Serenity’s After Serenity’s mother passed away, she stayed with me for some time,” said Granny. Suddenly, she thought of something and asked Jackson, “Thave some of Serenity’s childhood photos. Do you want to
take a look?”
“Sure,” Jackson did not refuse.
Serenity felt a little embarrassed. “Granny!” she protested.
“Go fetch my photo album,” Granny ordered Serenity.
And so, under the expectant gazes of both Jackson and Granny, Serenity had no choice but to fetch the old photo albem
Granny showed Jackson the photos in the album. Every time she came across a photo of Serenity, Granny would tell Jackson the story behind the photo and how it was taken.
Although Granny was old, she had a very good memory and could remember many things vividly, down to the details.
When she reached a certain photo, Jackson’s eyes namowosd abruptly. He stared fixedly at the photo and asked, “Who’s that?”
“Oh, that? That’s Serenity’s cousin, my daughter’s daughter,” answered Granny.
Serenity added, “You saw her outside in the living room just now. Her name’s Lynette Blossom.”
So it was her, Jackson’s lips twitched with a bemused smile. “You two looked so alilor when you were little, but you look very different now.”
“Yeah, we used to look like each other when we were kids, Serenity said, “People would confuse us for each other all the time. But as we grew older, we became more and more different.”
