Thus, it did not mean that he could be forgiven simply because it was an unintentional mistake!
She was not that magnanimous to forgive a man who had caused the death of her mother!
Suddenly, she sprang from her seat and walked to the window with her back facing him. Looking out from it, she did not even want to lay one glance at him!
He looked up at her with her back on him, distant and resolved. His eyes were full of remorse and helplessness.
He stood up and walked to her side, carefully reaching out his old and wrinkled hand toward her, wanting to tap her shoulder.
However, her remote expression earlier froze him in action, and slowly, he withdrew it!
“Shishi… can you turn around for grandpa to have a look at you, yeah? Can you do that, please?”
He was almost begging her, his face looking wan as tears shimmered in his eyes.
She neither moved nor did as asked.
His heart was beyond grief as he pleaded one more time. “Grandpa was wrong! I was really wrong! Grandpa… I don’t ask for your forgiveness; I just ask… ask for you to give me a chance to make amends!
“Shishi… actually, grandpa, all these years…”
He gave a loud sigh and tried to reach for her hand.
She avoided his hand. With his hand dangling in mid-air, his lips twitched resignedly and tears rolled down his eyes without warning. He looked miserable beyond words.
This eighty-year-old man had always been arrogant, proud, and stubborn. Never once did he display his vulnerability, yet now, before his grandson and great grandson, his face was covered in fretful tears, looking utterly remorseful!
“At the very least, please give a chance for grandpa to make amends! Even one chance is good enough!”
He pleaded repeatedly with his voice full of vicissitudes. “Shishi, grandpa knows how many mistakes I made in my life! I know I was wrong—really wrong! I was so foolish to acknowledge an imposter as my granddaughter! If you are willing to forgive me, I’ll do anything for you!”
She took in a deep breath and turned around abruptly, shooting her icy glare on him. With her voice full of sarcasm, she asked expressionlessly, “Are you fitting to be my grandpa?”
He stared at her with shocked eyes.
“Do you know what my mother said about you?” She gave a cruel and frosty laughter. “She said that you are a cruel miscreant for destroying her life. It’s you who destroyed her happiness and made her a vagabond. She didn’t want me to step into the Mu family. ‘It’s a tiger’s den,’ she said! ‘And that Mu Sheng is the worst miscreant! Asking me to forgive you is your biggest mistake!”
The old man’s face turned pale and crestfallen after she was done. He looked at her unbelievably; his eyes full of mixed emotions. From initial shock and consternation gradually to pain and loss. Finally, it was regret and remorse.
He did not expect Qingcheng, the woman whom he had loved and doted as his own, would say such a cruel thing about him!
He also did not expect her hatred for him to be deep enough for her to call him a murderer!
