Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heiress - Chapter 1660 - Grandpa's Critical Condition
Chapter 1660: Grandpa’s Critical Condition
Zhong Rufeng had a duty, after all, and couldn’t stay long to chat with her. Thus, he left after a short conversation.
At this time, Wen Xinya received a call from Mother Wang, claiming that Grandpa was in a critical condition and was undergoing treatment in the emergency room at the very hospital that she was at.
Wen Xinya suddenly held her phone tightly and was without a doubt startled.
Wen Xinya rushed to the emergency room as soon as she could, and Mother Wang was looking flustered and worried on the bench outside the emergency operation room, tightly clenching her hands together, panicking and looking intently at the door of the emergency room.
“Mother Wang!” Wen Xinya shouted and hurriedly ran over.
Mother Wang saw Wen Xinya coming over and looked as if she found her greatest pillar of support. Hurrying over, she said in a flurry, “Missy, you are finally here.”
Mother Wang’s mind was in a scramble, her body trembling, looking as if she was about to crumble. She must have been really shocked earlier on.
After Wen Xinya saw her flustered and panicked face, body trembling, she held her cold and clammy hands and helped her back onto the bench. “Mother Wang, don’t panic, tell me slowly what happened to Grandpa.”
Although Wen Xinya was terribly worried about Grandpa, Mother Wang found out that she had high blood pressure two years ago. Under such circumstances, she was worried about her too. Thus, all she could do was suppress her own panicked emotions and help comfort Mother Wang to make her feel better.
Mother Wang’s fluster and panic then slowly stabilized, as she said, “I came out of the kitchen and saw Master lying on the floor unconscious. No matter how I called him, he couldn’t wake up. Afterward, I gave Old Tao a call. Together with him, I sent Master to the hospital, and now he’s still in the midst of emergency operation. His current condition is still unknown.”
Once Mother Wang thought of the earlier situation, she couldn’t help but get chills down her spine and began coughing. At that time, she was entirely stunned, and when she ran over to call Master, she pinched him and followed some of Missy’s massage techniques on Master’s acupoints, but Master never woke up even after all of that.
In the end, she called Old Tao and they worked together to send Master to the hospital.
Along the way, Old Tao ran many red lights, in fear of delaying Master’s treatment.
“Where’s Grandpa’s medicine? That was Master Du Shinan’s specially made ‘Heart Pill’ for Grandpa, and I’ve always kept it ready for your grandpa. It’s in the box right at the glass coffee table. In the past, I even directed you and Old Tao to give Grandpa a pill when he starts feeling uncomfortable with feelings of chest tightness.”
Grandpa had an old condition of chest tightness, and back then when he was terribly angered to unconsciousness by Wen Haowen, it was due to this condition as well.
Originally, it was not a huge issue as it was only an incompletely cured illness from back when he was younger. He could only take good care of himself and recuperate. However, he was already over seventy now and, although she took good care of him, his underlying condition of chest tightness would still occur every now and then.
At such an old age, a small condition such as this could also cause dangerous repercussions.
Therefore, she requested Grandpa Du to make the heart pill for Grandpa.
The manufacturing process for the pill was extremely complicated, and all of the ingredients used were also really expensive. It was a pill for emergency rescue, even a dying patient’s pulse could be stabilized for about half an hour to an hour.
Mother Wang was flustered. “Heart pill… Oh yes, the heart pill. Master’s pills were finished, I saw the bottle lying on the ground…”
When Master was unconscious, the first thing she thought of was the heart pills.
The efficacy of the pills was high and Master’s chest tightness could be easily solved by just one pill in less than ten minutes.
Wen Xinya cast a look of suspicion and said, “Grandpa’s pills were prepared by me just a while back, it can’t have finished so quickly.”
Grandpa’s chest tightness did not happen that frequently, ten pills should have lasted him for half a year, how could it be finished so quickly this time?
Mother Wang was flustered and could not answer at this very moment.
Wen Xinya suddenly wondered. “Do you know why Grandpa would be suddenly unconscious?”
Grandpa’s condition could not stand any agitation, Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian’s family scandal were now in the eyes of the media, and Grandpa was definitely angry, to the point where discomfort was highly possible.
However, Grandpa no longer cared about Wen Haowen anymore and was unlikely that he would be agitated by his absurdity to the point that he would be unconscious, unable to wake up.
Was there something that she was missing?
Mother Wang was at a loss and shook her head. “I have no idea. There was no one else in the living room at the time. When I saw Master unconscious, I was totally flustered.”
Therefore, in the moment of stress, she did not care or worry about anything else.
The doubt in Wen Xinya’s heart grew even larger. “Was Wen Haowen ever home today?”
It cannot be blamed that she would think of Wen Haowen as the culprit, as the one thing that could cause Grandpa to be so upset would be the scandal between Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian. For the Wen Family and Wen Corporation’s reputation, it was impossible that Grandpa would not concern himself with the scandal at all.
Mother Wang shook her head nonstop, looking panicked. “I….. I don’t know, I did not see him come home.”
Mother Wang was busy working in the kitchen the whole afternoon and did not know anything about this.
Mother Wang was unable to properly answer any of her questions, and Wen Xinya saw that she didn’t look too well, thus, she didn’t continue asking. “About my Grandpa, does Old Mrs. Wen know already?”
Wen Xinya had been back at the Wen Family for 8 years, but her relationship with Old Mrs. Wen was never too good.
However, without Xia Ruya inciting her or Ning Shuqian talking bad, these past few years had been relatively fine.
Yet, because of Wen Haowen, Old Mrs. Wen still looked at her with disdain and picked on her with mean words.
Mother Wang’s emotions gradually stabilized. “After Master was sent to the hospital, I gave you and Old Mrs. Wen a call and called Young Master as well, but no one picked up.”
Mother Wang had been with the Wen Family for many years and must have seen many things. She was only a helper with the family, after all. With such a big matter where her Master was lying unconscious in the hospital, it was not something that these helpers could deal with.
Wen Xinya calmed herself down, held Mother Wang’s hands, comforting her. “Mother Wang, don’t worry. Grandpa will be fine.”
Even though she was comforting her like that, Wen Xinya was actually deeply worried about Grandpa.
She looked at the tightly sealed emergency room door, feeling extremely anxious. Her feelings of nervousness and fear were slowly creeping up on her. She almost lost all rationality and gripped her palm, full of sweat.
Over these years, the relationship between Grandpa and her had been deepening and improving and was no worse than the one between Grandpa and Xia Ruya, who had been raised by the Wen Family for 15 years. Now that she knew that Grandpa was in a critical condition, she was totally startled.
Although previously Grandpa was totally healthy at this point in time, the difference was that he did not receive any major agitation, so it could not be compared. Thus, she felt uneasy.
