Chapter 4 - Interesting

When Xue Fanxin heard Xue Batian's words, the corners of her lips curled up. Although she had yet to return to the Duke's estate, she had already thought of a way to deal with Li Yaoyao.

"Little Xin'er, you must have been very frightened today. I'll take you back immediately. Let's go, I'll carry you." Xue Batian bent down and patted his shoulder, indicating for Xue Fanxin to climb on his back.

Looking at his not particularly broad back, many memories surged into Xue Fanxin's mind. It was this back that had carried her ever since she was young, giving her endless love and warmth. No matter what others said about her, no matter how useless she was, this back would forever be her strongest support.

In her previous life, Xue Fanxin had been an orphan and lacked kinship since she was young. At this moment, she was so touched that she almost burst into tears. Her eyes were sore, and she really wanted to cry.

Even though Xue Batian was not her biological grandfather, why did she feel an inexplicable sense of familiarity towards him?

Xue Batian bent over for a long time but did not feel Xue Fanxin climb on. He turned back to look and saw that her eyes were red as if she was about to cry. He grew anxious. "Grandpa's Little Xin'er, why are you crying? Are you unwell? Quickly tell me."

Xue Fanxin pounced into Xue Batian's arms and hugged him. Feeling the warmth of his arms, she said, "Grandpa, thank you!"

Thank you for being good to me. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for protecting me. Thank you for being tolerant of me.

Thank you…

"Silly child, why are you saying these things all of a sudden? Are you feeling unwell anywhere?" Xue Batian used his rough and old hand to gently stroke Xue Fanxin's head, his loving heart encasing Xue Fanxin everywhere.

"Grandpa, I'm not feeling unwell. I'm fine. I just suddenly understood a lot of things. Grandpa, I'll definitely be filial to you in the future."

Xue Fanxin said these words not because of the host but because they came from her own heart. The moment she saw Xue Batian and sensed his infinite love for her, she had decided to be filial to him.

"Aiyo, my Little Xin'er has become sensible!" Xue Batian smiled so widely that his old eyes narrowed into slits. He was extremely happy.

"Grandpa, let's go back."

"Alright, Grandpa will carry you back."

"Grandpa, I've already grown up. I don't need you to carry me like you did when I was young. I can walk by myself. Let's go back quickly. I'm hungry." Xue Fanxin hooked onto Xue Batian's arm and dragged him away.

Xue Batian smiled even more happily and allowed Xue Fanxin to pull him along.

She was different from usual today. It seemed that she had really grown up and become sensible.

The grandfather and granddaughter pair walked together and gradually faded into the distance. However, they did not know that on a nearby mountain peak, someone had been watching them and listening to their every word and action.

In fact, Ye Jiushang never truly left. After leaving the cave, he went to a nearby peak and watched Xue Fanxin.

At this moment, a young man suddenly appeared behind Ye Jiushang and knelt on one knee. He said respectfully, "Your Highness, the higher-ups already know that you woke up early. They sent people over to escort you back."

"How long have I been sleeping for?" Ye Jiushang asked coldly with his back facing the man.

"Your Highness, you slept for nine months, nine days, and nine hours. You woke up half a year earlier than expected. Perhaps it is because you woke up early that the higher-ups are so anxious for you to go back."

"The moment of three nines, the power of nirvana… Could it be that all of this was really predestined by the heavens?"

"Your Highness, what are you talking about?"

"Nothing. Go and investigate the granddaughter of the Duke of the Nanling Empire, Xue Fanxin, for me. I want to know everything about her." Ye Jiushang looked at his slender, fair hand. The corners of his mouth curled up slightly as he revealed a mysterious smile.

There was actually the power of nirvana in her blood. This Xue Fanxin… was interesting.
