Chapter 204: If I Leave…
Shen Yan fell silent. He looked at Shen Nan, whose forehead was already breaking out in cold sweat, and sighed. “Xiao Xu, take Xiao Nan to your Grandpa Liu’s hospital to have a look at his injuries.”
“I’m not going, Grandpa. You haven’t promised Fifth Brother yet.” When Shen Nan heard that Shen Yan was going to send him away, he was instantly unhappy. From his simple mind, Shen Yan was doing this to change the topic.
Shen Yan glared at Shen Nan unhappily. He only wanted to think about it again, but this kid, Shen Nan, could not wait for him to make a decision.
“Xiao Yu, do you still remember the agreement between you and me?” Shen Yu, who was kneeling on the ground, froze. He glanced at Emily who was beside him and nodded solemnly.
“It was you who proposed to expel Shen Xue’s family from the family tree. I have no objections. But during this period of time, you have been studying at the company. You should also understand that whether or not to expel Shen Xue’s family from the family tree is not up to me alone. If you want to achieve your goal, you have to work hard yourself.”
Shen Yu was stunned. He bit his lip. He understood everything that Shen Yan had said, but when he saw Emily standing beside him, his firm heart began to waver again. He could not bear to part with her.
“This matter was brought up by you. Other than yourself, no one else can help you complete it. So you have to figure it out yourself. What exactly do you want to do?” said Shen Yan.
Shen Yan’s eyes had been looking at Shen Yu the whole time. He understood what Shen Yu was worried about and what he was unwilling to part with. However, he had to force Shen Yu to grow up.
“I’ve given you the opportunity. Whether you want to grasp it or not depends on yourself. Don’t try to rely on me to help you solve your problems. Only if you can solve it yourself will you be truly capable.”
After saying that, Shen Yan left the study without looking at the rest. He had already made the biggest concession. As for the outcome, it would depend on Shen Yu’s own choice.
“What does Dad mean? Why don’t I understand?” Third Aunt bumped Second Aunt with her arm, but she saw Second Aunt frown and did not dare to speak.
“Mom, Dad wants to…” Before Second Aunt could speak, Old Madam Shen shook her head. Second Aunt naturally shut her mouth. She looked at Shen Yu, who was kneeling on the ground in deep thought, and then looked at Emily, who was worried. Then, she sighed.
“Xiao Hao, take Xiao Nan to the hospital first.” Second Aunt hurriedly instructed her son to take Shen Nan to the hospital. The injury from the whip should have been quite serious. Shen Nan was able to hold on until now. It seemed that Shen Nan had also started to grow up slowly.
“Millie, pull Xiao Yu up. Everyone is tired today. Have a good rest.” When Emily heard Second Aunt’s words, she quickly pulled Shen Yu up. Perhaps it was because he had been kneeling for too long… Shen Yu’s legs were a little numb. His entire body was leaning on Emily’s body.
How could Emily’s small body support Shen Yu? Shen Xu quickly went forward to help. He helped Shen Yu back into the room. He opened his mouth as if he wanted to say something, but in the end, he did not say anything and left.
In the vast space, only Emily and Shen Yu were left. Emily’s eyes instantly turned red. She threw herself into Shen Yu’s arms and let her tears fall to her heart’s content. She sobbed, “Brother, I was scared to death just now. What if Grandpa’s whip really landed on you?”
Shen Yu’s expression softened as he patted Emily’s back gently. Shen Yu said softly, “Don’t worry. Although Grandpa was angry, he still used less force just now. It’s just that Xiao Nan blocked it too quickly, so Grandpa couldn’t react in time.”
“Brother, I know you did this for me. In fact, I can protect myself. I will definitely stay far away from Shen Xue in the future. Don’t quarrel with Grandpa again, okay?”
Thinking of the scene just now, Emily still felt a lingering fear. If she hadn’t been unable to resist going upstairs, wouldn’t Shen Yu have been beaten up? Shen Yu’s words made her feel very uncomfortable. She didn’t want to see Shen Yu get hurt.
“Don’t worry. Brother knows what to do. Don’t worry.” Shen Yu patted Emily’s back gently, trying to calm her emotions. When he saw that Emily’s emotions had already calmed down… he looked at the little person in his arms again. A trace of pity flashed through his eyes.
“Emi, if… I mean if… If Brother were to leave for a period of time, would you… would you forget me?”
