“He’s missing,” Grandpa Ji said sadly. “None of us can contact him.”
Ye Shengge’s hands started to tremble. Her eyes were red, and she couldn’t stand straight. However, she held on at the thought of the fetuses in her womb.
“What… happened?” She asked with a hoarse voice as she stared at Grandpa Ji.
“Come sit here first.” Grandpa Ji whimpered. He wiped his face. “Don’t be afraid. We just lost contact. Perhaps it’s just inconvenient for him to contact us.”
Ye Shengge nodded and sat on the sofa with the help of the servants.
She then handed her a cup of hot water.
“Jing Zhiyuan has a complicated background. We cant get rid of him just by collecting evidence of his crimes,” Grandpa Ji said slowly. “So, Shiting contacted Jing Zhiyuan’s arch-enemies and reached an agreement with them. After the evidence was submitted, Jing Zhiyuan was investigated immediately. His actions were all carried out in secret, and Jing Zhiyuan didn’t notice it at all, so he wasn’t bothered even when he knew that someone had reported him. If it weren’t for that, Jing Zhiyuan wouldn’t have been caught so easily.”
Ye Shengge clenched the cup in her hand and stared into space without saying anything.
“After Jing Zhiyuan was arrested, he didn’t contact me again. I gradually realized that something was wrong, so I sent people to investigate. In the end, I found his car in a river in Li City. Someone had obviously tampered with the car. There should have been an accident on the way back to Yang City. I was worried that someone would take revenge on him, but I didn’t expect him to have been discovered even though he was so careful…”
Ye Shengge suddenly felt suffocated. “Shiting…”
“Fortunately, he wasn’t in the car or in the river,” Grandpa Ji said. “I found Sun Ye’s whereabouts. He was sent to a nearby hospital, but he’s still unconscious.”
Ye Shengge bit her lips and closed her eyes. “I understand. I’m waiting for Sun Ye to wake up.”
Grandpa Ji saw her pale face and said, “I didn’t dare to tell you because I’m afraid you won’t be able to take it but you’re much calmer than I imagined so I’m relieved.”
He had been worried that Ye Shengge would have a miscarriage after hearing the news. After all, the fetuses only six months old, and the pregnancy wasn’t that stable yet.
Fortunately, she wasn’t as weak as he thought.
“Shiting is just missing. I believe he’ll be fine,” Ye Shengge said. “He won’t bear to leave me and the children behind.”
“I’m very happy that you think so.” Grandpa Ji nodded, but his voice was sad and weak. “I’ll inform you immediately if I have any news.”
When he was young, he was also a determined person, but as he got older, he became more and more trusting of fate, and he was more and more afraid of parting with life and death. He had already experienced the loss of his child, and he didn’t want to experience it a second time. Besides, Shiting was still young, and he hadn’t even seen his unborn children.
Grandpa Ji’s heart ached. He wondered if the Ji family was cursed. Was it because he had lived too long and jinxed his grandson’s fate? If Ji Shiting could return, he would be willing to pass away immediately.
“Okay, take care too.” Ye Shengge looked at him seriously. “Grandpa, you have to support the company before Shiting comes back. Don’t fall.”
