Before Grandpa Lin could recall what it was, Auntie Sun had already spoken up, “… Isn’t it Miss Shi’s birthday today?”
As expected of Auntie Sun, you always know what to say at the right time! Look forward to your year-end bonus!
Lin Jiage was extremely gleeful inside, but he didn’t let his emotions show on his face, as if the person they were talking about had nothing to do with him at all.
“Right, right, right! It’s Yaoyao’s birthday today! Aiyo, how could I have allowed this to slip my mind? My memory hasn’t been so good since I fell ill. I usually prepare a present for Yaoyao each year, and this year can’t be an exception…” As Grandpa Lin spoke, he began issuing instructions to Auntie Sun, “… Call our family cook and have him bake a cake right now. Also, get our driver to buy a gorgeous set of clothes for our Yaoyao. Remember, it must be an entire set! That includes a pair of shoes, a bag, and accessories! We need to prepare a birthday red packet for her too. Most importantly of all, a feast! Get the head chef from China World Hotel to prepare a sumptuous meal according to Yaoyao’s taste…”
Auntie Sun recorded everything Grandpa Lin said before adding, “Should I have the driver deliver the presents to Miss Shi’s house?”
Grandpa Lin felt regretful that he couldn’t celebrate Shi Yao’s birthday with her, but after some thought, it seemed like there was no other choice.
He was just about to nod in agreement when Lin Jiage, who had waited a long time for this moment, suddenly remarked with a bored look, “You can get the driver to deliver everything to the hospital, then…”
Lin Jiage paused for a brief moment before deciding to use a distant ‘her’, “… you can call her and say that you miss her to get her to come over. Won’t you be able to give her the presents personally this way?”
Grandpa Lin was still feeling deeply bitter that he couldn’t be with Shi Yao on her birthday, but when he heard Lin Jiage’s suggestion, his eyes immediately lit up, “That’s a good idea. Alright, do what this brat suggested.”
After which, Grandpa Lin began issuing more instructions to Auntie Sun in preparation for Shi Yao’s birthday. Halfway through his orders, he suddenly paused for a moment to shoot Lin Jiage a furious glare, “Not ‘her’, Yaoyao! If you don’t want to address her as Yaoyao, you can use ‘my fiancee’ instead!”
Auntie Sun gave Shi Yao a call at nine in the morning, inviting her over by using the excuse that Grandpa Lin was starting to miss her.
Shi Yao arrived in the hospital ward before eleven.
By the time she was done with the feast and cake which Grandpa Lin had especially prepared for her, it was already three in the afternoon.
In order not to let Lin Jiage and Shi Yao see through his faked illness, Grandpa Lin waited until the birthday celebration was over, then immediately feigned exhaustion to evict the two.
Due to his grandfather’s ‘relentless nagging’, Lin Jiage had no choice but to help Shi Yao carry her presents down.
By the time they arrived at the entrance of the hospital, the driver was already waiting in the car.
Lin Jiage walked to the car with the large amount of bags in his hands, then paused for a moment to say a word about the exceptionally good weather that day. After which, he turned his gaze to Shi Yao, who was about a meter behind him.
He had intentionally asked his grandfather about today’s date so that he’d bring her over from her home… Since she was already here in front of him, the rest was up to him now…
In that moment, Lin Jiage suddenly felt that he was a big bad wolf preying on a little white bunny.
Wait, that’s not right. I’m a gorgeous hunk preying on Soft Bun.
