My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 71 Grandma, I Hate You
“I am officially the richest man in Ywood!” Ryan repeated boastfully. Wendy was lost for words.
Meanwhile, in the Oliver family’s old house, a drama was playing out.
“Grandma, I want to go to the hospital to see daddy.Please let me go.”
Precious placed her arms firmly around Josie’s legs like a spoiled child.Josie was just twenty years old when she gave birth to Ryan.Now she was fifty.
But she had aged very gracefully and could easily be mistaken for a woman in her forties.
Her meticulous skin care routine over the years was the secret to her youthfulness. “Grandma! Daddy is sad all alone in hospital.”
Precious was her only granddaughter and she was the apple of her eye.
Generally she would bend over backwards to fulfil the little girl’s whims, but this time she stuck to her guns and denied her request.
“What? Your daddy is well taken care of at the hospital.He is not at all sad,” Josie explained.
Then, she hugged Precious and continued, “Precious, have you forgotten what I told you? I don’t want you to have any contact with Wendy and Ray anymore.They are bad people!”
“No! I like them! I want to be with them!” Precious protested.
Josie’s face suddenly became stern.
“Precious! I think you have been taken in by their sweet words.How long have you known them? You have to know that in this world, only your grandpa, grandma, your father and uncle really love you!”
“No! That’s not true! Grandma, I won’t allow you to say anything bad about Auntie Wendy and Ray!”
Hearing that, Josie became annoyed and her eyes turned red.She was consumed by anger and sorrow.
For many years, she had taken wholehearted care of Precious, but now her only grandchild challenged her authority for two people she barely knew.It hurt terribly.
“Precious…” She intended to persuade her again.
However, she was rudely interrupted by her rebellious grandchild.
“I want to see Auntie Wendy and Ray!” Precious sobbed at the top of her lungs.
It broke Josie’s heart to see the little girl wailing but this time, she was determined not to give in to her request.
Precious flung herself on the floor and threw another tantrum.
Next to them, Anson was watching the drama heighten.
He couldn’t bear to see Precious lying on the floor, so sad and helpless, so he quickly picked her up and comforted her.
“My dear, the floor is so cold.How can you lie there? Get up now!”
“Grandpa, I want to go to the hospital.I want to see my daddy, Auntie Wendy and Ray!” she sobbed uncontrollably.
“Auntie Wendy and Ray are such nice people.Grandma has never even met them so how can she say that they are bad?” Josie went cold at the sound of these words.
Anson, who looked dapper in his navy blue traditional suit, had a slender built.He had served in the army so his back was always straight, which gave him an energetic appearance.However, strands of gray hair showed that he was beginning to age.
Josie was Anson’s wife and their love for each other was legendary.He doted on her.
Observing how upset she had become, he rushed to her side and consoled her in a soft voice.
“Calm down now.Please don’t blame her!” Josie turned away from him and sulked.
Seeing that, Anson prodded Precious’s shoulder and beckoned her to go to Josie.Precious was sensitive and realized that she had hurt Josie.
So she stopped crying and went to her.She tugged at the hem of Josie’s dress and said, “Grandma, I’m sorry.It was my fault.I shouldn’t have spoken to you so harshly.”
“Are you wrong?”
“Yes, yes, I was wrong.” Josie’s face softened.
She placed Precious on her lap.
Then she explained in a soft, gentle voice, “My darling, I wasn’t being stubborn.But if you want more friends to play with, I’ll arrange for you to meet many wonderful children.If you want a new mommy, I will show you many nice girls in the Ywood and you can choose the one you like the most.Then I will make sure that your daddy marries her.But Wendy will not make a good mommy for you.”
“Because she is an unmarried woman who already has a child.Besides, she is an actress in the movie industry and people speak badly about such actresses.Sweetheart, I have nothing against actresses but you are too young to understand how their minds work.They will do anything to marry into a rich family!”
“No, she won’t.Auntie Wendy saved me.”
“These are all her ploys!” Precious refused to believe it.
She shook her head desperately and retorted, “Grandma, Auntie Wendy is not like that.She didn’t know that my daddy was a rich man when she first met him.Later on when she came to know that he is a rich man, she still didn’t want to date him.It was my daddy who was going after her although she was trying to avoid him.” “It only proves that she is more cunning than we think!” Josie scoffed.
“Grandma! You are being unreasonable.”
“Precious! Be quiet! Anyway, I won’t let you meet them again!” Some time ago, Ryan had called her up unexpectedly and told her to stop arranging blind dates for him as he had finally met someone he liked.When Josie heard the news, she was delirious with delight and couldn’t sleep properly for several nights.
Ryan’s marriage had always been her greatest concern.He didn’t seem to like to talk to women, let alone physical contact with them.
For a short period of time she suspected that he might even be a homosexual! When she heard that he had fallen in love with a woman, she vowed that she would accept her as long as her family background was above board and she made her son happy. On that basis, she had hired someone to investigate Wendy’s background.
The results of the investigation were a slap in the face for her.
Soon, she discovered that Wendy was an unmarried mother and an actress.
How could she possibly agree to this love match? Luke had even shared with her that not only Ryan, but Precious adored Wendy too.Josie was horrified.
She immediately sent the driver to pick Precious up from Ensfield so that she would be away from Wendy.
“Grandma, why are you being so unreasonable?” Precious asked while trying to get away from Josie’s hug.
With teary eyes, she accused, “You’ve never met Auntie Wendy so how can you be so sure that she is a bad person? Grandma, don’t you always tell me that we can’t judge a book by its cover? You can’t group them as bad people because of what other people say.Since when did you become so unreasonable?”
Josie trembled in anger, “What did you say? I’m doing it for your own good!”
“No, you are not! If you really cared about my feelings then you will agree with me.After so long I finally found the perfect people who I want to be my mommy and my brother.But you don’t want me realize my dream.Grandma, I hate you!”
After that, Precious covered her face and ran upstairs in tears.
“Wendy, you are really something! In such a short space of time you got my granddaughter to hate me.Precious has lost all respect for me now! She just said she hates me.Never before has she ever spoken to me like that!” Josie was deeply saddened and wiped away her tears.
Seeing that, Anson sighed helplessly.He sat beside Josie and put his arm around her shoulder.
“This time you are wrong! I think what Precious said makes sense.She may be young, naive and can be easily fooled, but Ryan and Luke are not.If Wendy had ulterior motives, then they would have definitely been able to see through her.Honey, we should trust our sons!”
