Chapter 484: A New Grandson
Grandmother Liang and Mrs. Liang entered the room right at that moment. “I don’t mind having a new grandson, Weiqi, you’ll be Liang Weiqi from now on. After all, you’ve been calling me Grandma for a long time.”
“That’s right! It sounds much better than Lu Weiqi! Xingzhi, you cannot snatch him away from Grandmother Liang. I don’t mind having a new son too!” Mrs. Liang gave Zhou Weiqi a big hug. “Silly boy, who says you don’t have anyone left in the world? We are your family!”
“I’ve been a grandmother to you for so long, if I’m not part of your family I don’t know who else is.” Grandmother Liang lovingly patted Zhou Weiqi’s head. “We really care for you.”
That was enough for Zhou Weiqi, tears started racing down his cheeks.
For the entirety of his twenty-odd-year life, he only cried once, it was when his mother passed away; he was still young then.
Since then, no matter how much injustice and wrongdoings were hurled his way by the Zhou family, he never shed a single tear.
He thought he had forgotten how to cry!
Zhou Weiqi wiped his tears and said, “How about this? I’ll be Liang Weiqi on odd days and Lu Weiqi on even days? As for Sunday…” He looked at Chen Xuyao and grinned, “I’ll be Chen Weiqi on Sunday?”
“Get lost! I don’t want you!” Chen Xuyao did not know what to make of it.
“You silly child!” Grandmother Liang gently slapped Zhou Weiqi’s head and laughed.
It was all jovial and cheerful for the Liangs, on the other hand, Mr. Zhou and the Dus sat gobsmacked.
They were astonished seeing Grandmother Liang and Mrs. Liang’s attitude toward Zhou Weiqi and regretted the way they used to treat him.
Lu Xingzhi gave Jiang Yao’s hand a slight squeeze; his mouth curled upward into a grin.
He was happy that Zhou Weiqi made the decision himself.
“I want to see the declaration published in all major newspapers by tomorrow morning. Don’t forget to transfer the money over too. Once it’s done, you can meet the Divine Doctor tomorrow afternoon.” Lu Xingzhi continued, “We’ll meet at the Military Hospital, bring along Du Chen and all of his previous medical records.”
“Yes, we will!” Du Shihua kept nodding his head. “We’ll transfer the money over to Master Lu’s bank account later! Whatever you want, we will do it!”
They left right after.
Du Shihua was the one driving, while Mrs. Du sat on the co-driver seat. They were all smiles, with Mrs. Du tearing up from happiness.
Mr. Zhou, on the other hand, sat tensed up in the backseat, rage and fury radiating from his body.
“There’s no use crying over spilled milk at this point. He said it himself as well, he is not going to acknowledge you as his father anymore.” Du Shihua added, “I’ll go and pay a visit to the chief editors of some of the major newspapers in town later, you should send your draft to them soon. They’ll have it published by tomorrow. I’m bringing Chen to the hospital tomorrow; do you understand what I’m trying to say?”
“Five hundred thousand, you’re very generous, aren’t you?” Mr. Zhou shot back.
