Chapter 1344: Officially Breaking Up
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jiang Li was already turning to leave when he saw that his father was still standing there, motionless. He couldn’t help but call out, “Dad?”
Jiang Zongnan did not respond. He didn’t look at anyone. He looked stubbornly at the old man in the wheelchair and said in a low voice, “Dad, are you removing Xianrou from the family tree because of Nian Nian?”
Old Master Jiang raised his head. He had aged a lot during this period of time. His hair had turned completely white, and the wrinkles at the corners of his eyes were very deep. However, he was calm and peaceful. He only glanced at Jiang Zongnan, who was standing on the spot and refusing to leave. Old Master Jiang said without hiding anything, “Yes.”
“Xianrou didn’t participate in this matter!” Jiang Zongnan’s voice was deep. He clenched his fists so hard that his knuckles turned white.
Old Master Jiang did not react. His expression was still calm. He glanced at Jiang Xianrou, whose face was as pale as paper, then looked away and said tiredly, “I know she’s not involved, but can you say that she doesn’t know anything?”
“…” Jiang Zongnan’s throat was stuck and he couldn’t answer immediately.
Old Master Jiang’s expression was calm as he continued, “You know very well that there are some things that she doesn’t need to participate in. She just needs to give a hint, and someone will do it for her. Can you say that she didn’t participate personally?”
Of course not.
Jiang Zongnan tightened his grip, and his face turned ashen.
He knew that Jiang Xianrou couldn’t say that she was completely innocent in this matter, but the punishment the old master gave her was too heavy!
Old Master Jiang didn’t look at him again. He said calmly, “Go back. I won’t change my decision easily. There’s no need for you to discuss who’s right and who’s wrong with me.”
“…” Jiang Zongnan raised his head. Emotions surged in his eyes before they finally darkened.
He turned around and left without even saying goodbye to Jiang Zongjin.
Yuan Qing stood up as well with a conflicted expression.
Seeing her conflicted expression, Old Master Jiang raised his hand. “They’ve all left. You should leave, too. I’m going to rest.”
Yuan Qing hesitated for a moment before going along with the flow. “Then, I’ll leave first.”
“Yes,” Old Master Jiang replied calmly.
Yuan Qing led her family and greeted Old Master Jiang before following Jiang Zongnan and the others away.
The ward was suddenly half empty.
Only Jiang Zongjin and Elder Ye were left.
Jiang Zongjin was at a loss for a moment. He stood there and looked at his father. His elegant face hesitated for a moment before he said, “Then, Dad, I won’t disturb you anymore. Rest early.”
“Wait a moment.” Old Master Jiang stopped him.
Jiang Zongjin immediately stopped and asked him respectfully, “Dad, is there anything else?”
Old Master Jiang’s temples throbbed upon seeing how serious he was. The back of his head was tense.
Fortunately, his furrowed brows relaxed again when he thought of Qiao Nian. He stopped looking at him and turned to speak to Ye Maoshan and the others. “I’m not in good health. All these years, the Jiang family has relied on you guys to survive… But as you can see, my family has been in a mess ever since I found my granddaughter. The family is no longer united. I don’t know how long my body… can last.”
“Dad, don’t talk nonsense. You will be healthy and live a long life.” Jiang Zongjin interrupted him.
However, Old Master Jiang smiled and didn’t care much. “Everyone has to die. I’ll still leave one day even if I live to be a hundred years old. I’m not afraid of death. I’ve long wanted to go down and see your mother, but I’ve always been worried about Nian Nian. I didn’t find her before, and I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find her until the day I left. But I can’t protect her well now that I’ve found her.”
