Mr Fu, I Really Love You Chapter 673
673 With Her Ankle in Fu Huai’an’s Hand
Fu Qingquan allowed Housekeeper Ye to walk him into the living room after changing out of his shoes.
Fu Qingquan’s younger brother, Fu Qingshui, stood up and greeted Fu Qingquan along with the juniors in order to show his respect towards his biological older brother. The rest stood up too, and only Fu Qingquan’s cousin, Fu Qinghe, who was older than him and wheelchair-bound, didn’t follow suit.
“Big Brother is here too!” Fu Qingquan addressed that stubborn and bad-tempered older cousin of his.
Fu Qinghe nodded his head slightly. “So long as you know to come home!”
Fu Qingquan knew that Fu Qinghe’s temper was like that all along and wasn’t calculative with him. He naturally walked to Old Madam Fu and sat down next to her, appearing as if the two of them had never fallen out and as if he had never left that home.
Old Madam Fu fixed the shawl on her shoulders. Her face was still tense, but she didn’t say nasty things.
Fu Cheng walked in with his son and daughter, and after they greeted all of the elders, the two children broke free of Fu Cheng’s hands and ran up to Old Madam Fu to seek praise from her.
“Grandma! Grandma! Xinxin and Mingming are terrific! We managed to drag Grandpa here from the company! Otherwise, Grandpa would still be busy with work at the company!” Fu Xinxin said to Old Madam Fu naively.
A smile appeared on Old Madam Fu’s tense face, and she reached out and pinched Fu Xinxin’s little face. “En, our Xinxin is terrific!”
“Grandpa wasn’t working!” The younger Mingming rested both hands on Old Madam Fu’s knees, looking up at Old Madam Fu with a serious expression as he said, “Mingming saw Grandpa looking at Aunt’s photo! Grandpa was secretly crying! Even Mingming has stopped crying! Grandpa, shame, shame…”
Fu Qingquan didn’t expect that a child would expose him. His ears turned red. “Mingming must have seen wrongly… Grandpa is old, and my eyes are always dry and tearing. I wasn’t secretly crying…”
Fu Mingming’s words hit the right spot in Old Madam Fu’s heart, and a warm current surged into Old Madam Fu’s heart and eyes.
All these years, Old Madam Fu really thought Fu Qingquan had forgotten all about their daughter.Read more chapter on vipnovel
She thought that she was the only one who missed their deceased daughter, that after Fu Qingquan found out about his illegitimate son, he had forgotten their daughter. She hadn’t expected that Fu Qingquan still remembered her…
Seeing Old Madam Fu’s eyes redden, Fu Mingming helplessly turned his head around and looked at his father, Fu Cheng. Seeing the smile on Fu Cheng’s lips, Fu Mingming then asked in a small voice, “Grandma, did Mingming say something wrong? Grandma, please don’t be angry, ok?”
Old Madam Fu looked at Mingming, then smiled with much difficulty and stroked the top of Fu Mingming’s head. “No, Grandma isn’t angry. Mingming is very obedient!”
Women’s hearts were soft, after all. After the child carelessly revealed how Fu Qingquan had secretly cried while looking at Fu Wan’s photo, no matter how much hatred she felt towards Fu Qingquan previously, at this very moment, that anger had melted into a bitter sensation in her chest.
Housekeeper Ye brought Fu Qingquan his favorite biluochun tea and several snacks. Fu Qingshui asked Fu Qingquan about company matters, and the rest of them chirped in from time to time, making the atmosphere rather relaxed.
Hearing the sounds of laughter and chatter inside the house, Housekeeper Ye heaved a sigh of relief. He stood at the entryway and glanced at his wristwatch, wondering when Fu Huai’an would arrive.
Housekeeper Ye’s vision strayed away from the wristwatch. He was informed that Fu Huai’an’s car had entered the family mansion.
Housekeeper Ye asked someone to notify them that Fu Huai’an and his wife had arrived, then he went up to welcome them.
Shortly after, seeing the car headlights approaching, Housekeeper Ye walked to the fountain…
After the car was parked properly, Housekeeper Ye helped Lin Nuan open the door to the backseats and addressed her respectfully, “Young Mistress, good evening!”
On the way there, Fu Huai’an had informed Lin Nuan about the Fus’ housekeeper, so she nodded and addressed him the same way Fu Huai’an did, “Housekeeper Ye, good evening…”
Lin Nuan buttoned her coat and got out of the car.
Seeing that Lin Nuan was wearing high heels, Housekeeper Ye attentively held out his hand for Lin Nuan to support herself with.
“Thank you…” Lin Nuan thanked him and climbed out of the car, holding onto Housekeeper Ye’s hand for support.
Fu Huai’an got out of the car and closed the door. Housekeeper Ye nodded at Fu Huai’an, full of smiles. “Young Master!”
Little Lu, who was in the driver’s seat, also got out of the car and greeted Housekeeper Ye, “Housekeeper Ye!”
Housekeeper Ye smiled and nodded.
Lin Nuan held onto Fu Huai’an’s arm and walked into the mansion with him. Her throat felt terrible, so she coughed to clear her throat.
Fu Huai’an squeezed Lin Nuan’s hand forcefully. When they were changing out of their shoes, Fu Huai’an didn’t wait for the servants to offer their help. He personally helped Lin Nuan take out a pair of slippers, then squatted down and helped her slip into them. “I heard you clearing your throat just now? Is your throat feeling unwell?”
Lin Nuan felt a little embarrassed because Housekeeper Ye was around. With her ankle in Fu Huai’an’s hand, Lin Nuan couldn’t very well shake her leg away from him, so she could only tuck her hair behind her reddened ears and nod. “En, my throat’s been feeling a little uncomfortable lately!”
After changing out of her shoes, Lin Nuan gazed at Fu Huai’an with her bright eyes and thanked him, “Thanks!”
Fu Huai’an removed his suit jacket and handed it to the servants, then smiled at Lin Nuan, gentleness in his eyes.
Housekeeper Ye had watched Fu Wan grow up, and Fu Huai’an’s eyes bore a great resemblance to Fu Wan’s when he smiled. It was just that, in the past, Fu Huai’an very rarely smiled.
“Fewer people came here today than in past years…” Housekeeper Ye stood by the side as he informed Fu Huai’an about which other guests were present.
Knowing that Su Manman was also there, Lin Nuan felt slightly relieved.
Housekeeper Ye added at the end, “Young Master, with Young Miss having passed away and Old Master having left the house, you’re considered Old Madam’s closest kin. If Old Madam said something that displeased you and Young Mistress, on account of your blood ties, don’t be overly calculative with her…”
Fu Huai’an helped Lin Nuan take off her coat, then casually handed it to Housekeeper Ye. With a deep gaze, he calmly asked, “Is Old Master back here today too?”
When the servant opened the shoe cabinet, Fu Huai’an saw that Fu Qingquan’s shoes seemed to be around too.
Housekeeper Ye nodded, smiling and replying as if speaking of an everyday affair, “Today is Young Miss’ birthday, so how could Old Master not come back?”
Fu Huai’an didn’t reply. Housekeeper Ye looked towards Lin Nuan with a slight smile. Lin Nuan smiled at Housekeeper Ye, understanding Housekeeper Ye’s intention to be a mediator.
Lin Nuan heard that after Fu Qingquan moved in with Lu Qingmei, he had never set foot in the Fu family mansion. Never mind Fu Huai’an’s mother’s birthday, even for her death anniversary, he had never once returned.
The Fus were cold-hearted, and Lin Nuan had realized this early on, even more so for Fu Huai’an…
Now, with the Kaide Corporation in a perilous situation, Fu Qingquan had chosen to return on a day like this. It was clearly an attempt to get along with Fu Huai’an.
Fu Qingquan was concerned with “face” all of his life, and he couldn’t bear to take the initiative to approach Fu Huai’an. It would be more natural for him to casually mention a word or two about the Kaide Corporation if they happened to bump into each other on such an occasion.
Housekeeper Ye walked in front and led Fu Huai’an and Lin Nuan into the living room. Su Manman jogged over quickly and grabbed Lin Nuan’s neck with one hand as she asked, “Why are you only here now?”
