Mu Xiaoxiao smiled and said, “We’re having afternoon tea! Hurry and come over. This tiramisu is delicious, so I left one for you. This milk tea is also good. It tastes like the one I had in Hong Kong.”
When Annie walked closer, a domestic helper pulled out a chair for her to sit down on.
“Chris, you mentioned that Grandma wanted to see me. Is her illness…” After Annie sat down, she didn’t take the tiramisu Xiaoxiao offered her, but turned around to talk to Chris.
“Grandma’s condition is stable. She’s just really angry.” Even though this was the case, Chris smiled lightly.
“She’s angry?” Annie looked puzzled. “What’s wrong with Grandma? Why is she angry?”
“She’s actually angry at me.” Chris sighed. “Because I did something that went against her wishes.”
“What did you do?” Annie asked.
Chris put his cup of coffee down. Crossing his legs, he placed his hands on his thighs and looked into her eyes deeply. “There’s something that I’ve been keeping from you. There’s no engagement party. I canceled the engagement long ago.”
“Canceled… the engagement?” Annie was shocked. Her eyes were wide as she looked at him and reflected in them were joy, puzzlement, and worry.
She was happy because she was discussing with Ye Sijue how she could cancel the engagement while he was in the hospital. No matter how she saw it, this was her fault, and she was willing to bear the consequences.
Ye Sijue had also told her that he would stay with her no matter what happened.
The both of them had already prepared themselves for what lay ahead.
However, she was still worried about Grandma and afraid that her illness would deteriorate due to the engagement.
Thus, when Chris told her that he had canceled the engagement long ago, she couldn’t help but feel joy.
She asked anxiously, “Then Grandma…”
“Grandma is angry, but she’s angry at me.” Chris said gently, “She blames me for letting you be snatched away by another man.”
Annie pursed her lips and looked at him, touched. “Don’t think that I’m unaware that you’ve pushed all the blame onto yourself. It’s clearly my fault…”
Chris smiled lightly and said, “It’s okay. Anyway, the end result is the same. Do you think Grandma doesn’t know? She knows, but you also know that she loves you the most. How could she be angry at you? So she chose to be angry at me instead.”
“Chris…” Annie’s nose twinged and she looked at him tearily.
“Silly girl, why are you crying? Blink your tears back. Don’t let them fall.” Chris gazed at her with lowered eyelids. Even though his words were bossy, his tone was gentle.
Annie’s eyes grew redder. “I’m sorry, Chris… I’m too selfish. Grandma must be very upset, right?”
Mu Xiaoxiao was staring at them both, feeling like something was off.
Was Chris trying to guilt-trip her?
Mu Xiaoxiao didn’t know what his plans were but she didn’t think that things were that simple.
