Chapter 1365: They Won’t ComeTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
From noon onwards, all kinds of undercurrents began to surge under the calm surface of Beijing.
The various forces sensed the unusual atmosphere hidden under the calm, but no one could find out what had happened.
They only knew that the top families in Beijing were rushing to the Beijing First Hospital.
Outside the hospital.
Jiang Yao leaned against the side of the Land Rover. He was wearing a beige windbreaker, tall and handsome. He lowered his head and bit on a cigarette, attracting the attention of many young girls walking on the road.
He was used to it and did not care about the adoring gazes directed at him.
He looked down at his cigarette and blew out a stream of smoke. There wasn’t much expression on his face as he stood there looking slightly bored.
Soon, a minivan screeched to a halt in front of him.
Immediately after, a young man about his height hurriedly got off. The man was wearing a baseball cap with the brim pulled down so that only his chin could be seen. “Brother.”
Jiang Li got out of the car in a hurry and immediately found Jiang Yao. Then, he asked anxiously, “Why are you here? Where’s Dad?”
“Dad went in.” Jiang Yao stubbed out his cigarette with his hand and dropped the butt. His tone was calm.
Jiang Li was stunned for a moment and then quickly walked inside.
He had just started walking when he sensed that something was wrong. He turned around and walked back to Jiang Yao. He asked curiously, “Aren’t you going in with me?”
God knew how nervous he was when he received a call from his father saying that Nian Nian had been in a car accident. He stopped filming the advertisement and rushed over after running through seven to eight red lights.
He was about to die of anxiety, but Jiang Yao was actually so calm?
Jiang Li thought of something and frowned slightly.
Jiang Yao wouldn’t have anything against Nian Nian at a time like this, right?
“You guys can go in. I’ll wait for Uncle and the others outside.” Jiang Yao reached out and flicked the ashes off his windbreaker. He didn’t make it too obvious, but his tone was very calm. Anyone with a discerning eye could tell that he didn’t care much about Qiao Nian’s life.
Jiang Li was speechless.
Emotions surged in his eyes. Because the hospital was a public place and there were people everywhere, it was not convenient for him to show his celebrity identity. Jiang Li could only take a deep breath and temporarily suppress the emotions surging in his heart. He asked, “Where’s Mom? Mom and Xianrou aren’t coming?”
He already had his answer.
Jiang Yao did not hide anything and said frankly, “They went to school to settle the withdrawal procedures, so they won’t be coming.”
“Hehe.” Jiang Li sneered and looked indifferent. He seemed to have nothing to say, so he stopped talking nonsense with Jiang Yao. His expression turned cold and he said, “Alright, I’ll go in first.”
Jiang Yao knew what he wanted to say. It was just that the estrangement between the two families was too deep. Putting everything else aside, Jiang Xianrou’s refusal to visit Qiao Nian wasn’t wrong. It was only human nature.
Jiang Li was about to go in, but before he left, he asked him again, “Brother, are you sure you don’t want to go in with me to see Nian Nian?”
Jiang Yao raised his eyebrows as if he didn’t understand why he was asking this again. He couldn’t help but frown. After thinking for a second, he still kept a straight face and didn’t waver. “I’m not going. You guys go in. It’s enough with just you guys.”
Jiang Li saw that he was stubborn and shook his head. He couldn’t be bothered to talk to him anymore and rushed into the emergency room.
Jiang Yao watched him go in just as his phone rang.
He looked down and saw that it was Xu Jishen.
