Stand-in Relationship - Chap 27
Finally, Xu Chengyan and Qin Zhou sent grandma back.
Qin Zhou’s house is not far away, he lives in an old house outside the entrance of the village.
Qin Zhou helped grandma back to the room, and hurriedly brought a chair over, “Sit down, little boss, I’ll pour the water!”
Xu Chengyan sat on a chair and looked at the room.
The house is a bit old, and more than half of the walls are dusty. Because of the small space, the sundries are densely piled together. There are many plastic bottles in the corners, which should be picked up by grandma.
Qin Zhou also poured water over there, brought the cup over, and said a little embarrassedly: “The hot water has already been boiled, but before it boils, the cold water is poured first…”
Xu Chengyan held the cup, looked at the bedroom again, and asked, “Is grandma at home alone?”
Qin Zhou nodded, and said helplessly: “I don’t have money, I’m going to pick up work outside during the day, so I don’t have time to take care of grandma.”
“Anyone else at home?”
“There is no one else, just me and my grandma.” Qin Zhou shook his head and said lightly: “My mother ran away with others after I was born. After that, my grandfather fell ill and died, and my father also fell ill and died.”
Qin Zhou’s tone was very flat, as if he was talking about something that had nothing to do with him.
“Sorry.” Xu Chengyan lowered his eyes.
“It’s okay.” Qin Zhou waved his hand, but it didn’t matter.
Xu Chengyan asked again, “Are there any relatives who can help?”
“I don’t have any relatives either.” Qin Zhou said, “My grandmother and I used to be out of town, a small village in the north, and later moved to Anshi.”
“It’s good to get used to it.” Qin Zhou smiled, “I’m very happy every day now.”
Xu Chengyan also quieted down and stopped talking.
At this moment, there was a sound of movement from the bedroom.
As soon as Qin Zhou heard this, he had to get up and go into the bedroom, he saw his grandma standing in front of the cabinet, rummaging through it.
“Grandma!” Qin Zhou supported his grandma and said quickly, “Tell me what you want, and I’ll help you to find it.”
But grandma still ignored Qin Zhou and just continued to look in the closet.
Until she found a thick envelope in the innermost mezzanine of the cabinet, his grandmother hurriedly took out the envelope and walked outside.
“Xiao Zhou…” Grandma hurriedly came to Xu Chengyan’s side, took out all the money in the envelope, and stuffed it into Xu Chengyan’s hands.
“Grandma saves everything for Xiao Zhou…”
Xu Chengyan looked down and saw that all the change was in his hand, most of which were one piece and fifty cents. And these changes are not very new, it seems that they have been saved for a long time.
“It’s all for Xiao Zhou…” Grandma held Xu Chengyan’s hand, “Xiao Zhou buys more to eat, grandma is not hungry…”
Xu Chengyan suddenly felt that the change in his hand became heavy. When he looked up at Qin Zhou, he saw that Qin Zhou’s eyes were red, and he turned around and wiped his eyes.
After a while, Qin Zhou came over and helped grandma up, “Grandma, go to rest first.”
This time, grandma didn’t resist any longer and was sent back to the bedroom by Qin Zhou.
