Chapter 1322: Afraid to Implicate Her
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
He did not want to burden his older brother, though, so he kept mum about this event.
Plus, with him being an upright and honest man, he was even more unwilling to mention it to his brother.
Only at this time, when Yun Yecheng had rushed back to his hometown to settle the funeral, did he learn about this matter. His heart was full of turmoil.
His younger brother had always been fulfilling his filial piety duties on his behalf for many years, yet he only learned about the former’s condition after a whole year had already passed! When the latter saw the former lying paralyzed in bed and how his complexion had changed a great deal, he suddenly felt extremely guilty.
He felt as if he had let his little brother down.
After settling the funeral matters, he began to have thoughts of bringing his little brother back to the city!
With the limited years they had left, he wanted to treat his brother well.
Alas, thinking of how he had already sold his house in the city after moving in with Yun Shishi, he did not know how to bring his brother back with him.
Even though their home was huge, he thought of how his adopted daughter would have her family and life in the future; thus, he was afraid to be a bother to her!
When he made a call, he mentioned this issue to her in hopes of seeking for her advice.
“Shishi, I know you are extremely kind and will not reject dad’s request, but I don’t want you to feel pressured to accept it! Dad hasn’t been very filial these past few years, and now that my brother is sick, I can’t help but feel guilty for everything. I’m thinking of bringing him to the city to take care of him. Will you be angry with dad if I do that?”
The woman fell silent for a moment.
She had met the man a couple of times when she was young.
Once was when she had just gone to the Yun family. The man had come to the city with his entire family to visit her adoptive father’s family. In his simple clothes, he had brought along special, local products and a variety of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables from his hometown.
That time, he had even carried her!
He loved little kids and was very close to them. Between her and Yun Na, the man especially loved her who was docile and obedient, and he doted on her a lot.
The second time was after her adoptive father’s business had folded and his family was in dire straits.
Her adoptive uncle had visited them behind his wife’s back. He knew in his heart that his older brother was not doing well and his family was in a predicament. Therefore, he sneakily handed him tens of thousands of yuan he had scrimped and saved for the latter to pay off his debts.
The older brother was naturally unwilling to accept it and rejected him time and again. The latter did not say much, only to sneak the money in one of his brother’s drawers when he was about to leave.
She had a lot of good feelings toward Yun Yehou.
He was an honest and upright man.
Thus, the moment she heard that her adoptive father was planning to bring her adoptive uncle over, she was already thinking of which good place should they have the man settled down.
That would not do… It was a little inconvenient!
With her career, if she was followed by a paparazzo, it would only cause disturbance to the man.
Yun Yecheng took her silence as dissatisfaction regarding his request, so he hurriedly explained, “Shishi… I know that request puts you in a tight spot! Actually, this is what I thought: Since I am currently working, I can take out about five thousand yuan every month. I’m planning to rent a flat with two rooms and one living room and have your uncle settle down there! Then, on usual days, I will stay there to take care of him.”
