Mu Tangchuan’s heart ached when he heard this. He could not stand to see his old father struggling to say these words.
“It’s nothing… There’s nothing to be dissatisfied with. I’m content with my life, and I’ve lived enough…”
Mu Yinan’s voice was weak, but it was calm.
“Father, don’t say that. Our son still needs you, and our children still need you. Otherwise, we won’t be at peace. Father, don’t think too much. You still have to watch Xiao Rui and Xiao Cheng grow up.”
Mu Tangchuan said in a hoarse voice, the heat in his eyes burning.
“I’m afraid that your mother has been waiting for me for too long down there… I haven’t had enough of her… actually, after your mother left, I felt like there was something missing in my body, and I’m not in a good state… I want to see her. I’ve seen Ah Shi’s state these days. Tell her to live well and not to feel guilty because of what happened between your mother and me. I’ve never really blamed Gu Qihao.”
Mu Yinan coughed lightly and took a few deep breaths. Mu Tangchuan quickly held him up and pulled the blanket for him.
“Father, I know, I know. You just don’t want us to have a bad life. I’m the Big Brother who didn’t look after Zixi and couldn’t protect her.”
“Sigh, how can I blame you? I’m not an unreasonable person. I can’t interfere with your relationship. It’s probably because your mother and I have given you too little concern… you’re just like Ah Chen, you rarely made me worry. Ah Rong has been married to the Mu family for decades. Both your mother and I are very satisfied. You have to treat her well.”
“Father, of course I will even if you didn’t tell me to.”
“That’s good. It’s almost evening. It’s still raining outside, right?”
Mu Yinan turned to look out the window and asked.
“Yes, Father! It’s been raining outside for a few days.”
Mu Tangchuan pulled the blanket over him as he replied.
“Oh… It’s been raining for a few days… you guys have been busy for many days too. It must be tiring for you. Ah Chen and Xiaye haven’t been to the company these few days, right?”
“They said that they’ll accompany you well and hope that you’ll recover soon. Father, rest well. We’re all here. Don’t worry.”
“It’s not a big deal… let them do what they need to do. Tangchuan, I’m not feeling too well. Go get some water. I want to wash up. Oh, get the black suit in the closet. Your mother prepared it for me before… I haven’t even worn it yet… It won’t be a pity if I wear it…”
Mu Tangchuan suddenly teared up. He struggled to swallow the pain in his throat and quickly stood up. “Okay, I’ll go now. Wait for me. I’ll help you wash up!”
“Okay, thank you for your hard work!”
Mu Yinan’s breathing was weak as he slowly closed his eyes again.
“Master, Minister Mu wants you to go over quickly. Elder… I’m afraid he can’t take it anymore!”
Just as Mu Yuchen was smoking outside the corridor of the study room, the butler suddenly rushed in in panic.
Just as the butler finished speaking, the cup in Mu Yuchen’s hand had already fallen to the ground, shattering all over the floor…
“What did you say?” Mu Yuchen asked in a daze.
“I’m afraid the Elder isn’t going to make it. Master, quickly go over and take a look.”
Before he could finish his sentence, Mu Yuchen had already walked over and strode outside.
Outside Mu Yinan’s door, Zhuang Shurong and Xi Xiaye were just standing there, while Mu Tangchuan was alone in the room.
When she saw Mu Yuchen walking over, Zhuang Shurong suddenly tugged at his sleeve and said anxiously, “Tell your grandfather not to worry and take good care of his body. Xiao Rui and Xiao Cheng are still…”
Zhuang Shurong could not finish her sentence.
Xi Xiaye reached out to support her, looking a little absent-minded.
Mu Yuchen replied and glanced at Xi Xiaye. He patted her shoulder before walking in.
In the room, Mu Tangchuan had already helped Mu Yinan wash up and change into clean clothes. Mu Yinan blinked his eyes in exhaustion before opening them again as if he was trying his best to resist the dark clouds that were getting darker and darker,
Mu Yuchen walked over and reached out to hold Mu Yinan’s withered hand.
“Remember what Grandfather told you before… take care of the Mu family, take care of Lingshi, Ah Mo, and the rest… Bury Grandfather closer to your grandmother…”
“Father, don’t say things like that…”
Before Mu Yinan could finish, Mu Tangchuan said hoarsely from the side.
“We won’t be able to get through this. We can’t let your mother wait for too long. You two, father and son, must… must…”
He could not finish his sentence. Mu Yinan’s hand dropped and his entire being…
“Father! Father! Wake up!”
Two voices suddenly sounded and the people outside rushed in as well.
Mu Lingshi was the first to rush to the bedside. She looked at Mu Yinan who was already gone on the bed and cried out loud. Her entire body went limp. Fortunately, Ah Mo was smart enough to hold her up.
Zhuang Shurong and Xi Xiaye, who were following behind her, also had tears in their eyes.
The entire room was silent. Mu Tangchuan was the first to recover. His eyes were red as he settled Mu Yinan down. He said hoarsely, “Alright, stop crying. Let your grandfather leave quietly.”
“Father, help Mother back to rest first. I’ll handle grandfather’s funeral.”
Mu Yuchen took a deep breath and blinked before he slowly stood up.
Mu Tangchuan glanced at him and then looked at Mu Yinan who was no longer breathing on the bed. He could only suppress the pain in his heart and nodded—
“I’ll leave it to you then!”
Mu Yuchen nodded and turned to look at Ah Mo and Mu Lingshi. “Ah Mo, take Lingshi back to rest first.”
“No, Brother. I want to accompany grandfather for a while more. I want to accompany him. Grandfather… grandfather…”
Mu Lingshi was in tears. She pushed Ah Mo away like she had gone mad and grabbed Mu Yinan’s hand tightly. She was in a daze as well.
Mu Yuchen gave Ah Mo a look, and Ah Mo nodded knowingly as well. He bent down and carried Mu Lingshi up.
Mu Lingshi fainted as well.
In the end, only Mu Yuchen and Xi Xiaye were left in the room.
Xi Xiaye sniffled. Her eyes were also misty as she stopped beside him. “You… Don’t be too sad. Grandfather passed away peacefully.”
A low voice was heard. Mu Yuchen turned around and looked at her. After a while, he suddenly reached out to wrap his arms around her waist and buried his face into her arms.
Xi Xiaye was stunned for a moment. Her eyes were wet as she hugged him. “Actually, I’m a little sad too, even though I know that this day was coming sooner or later.”
