“Grandfather, I…” Xiao Ming was a bit nervous now that Liu Zhongyuan directly guessed her reason for being here.
Liu Zhongyuan had, after all, lived for so many years, how could he not know Liu Mingxin’s meaning? Therefore, he hurriedly smiled and consoled her. “Lass, don’t worry. I understand this child Mingxin, his moral qualities are very good. He definitely doesn’t harbor any bad intentions towards you, same for me too.” Speaking up to this point, Liu Zhongyuan softly sighed and gradually said, “I’m well aware of what my situation is like now. At least, I can get to see Mingxin bringing a girl here. I’m already very happy.”
“Grandfather, I… we really didn’t mean to deceive you…” Xiao Ming’s lips pressed together and cried. “Young Master Liu just wanted you to be happy, please don’t blame him!”
“Silly child, why would I blame him.” Liu Zhongyuan stretched out his hand and gently stroked her hair. “Everyone has to go through this natural process from birth to death. Actually, I’m not concerned with how many years I can still live. Of course, if I can see the day that the two of you got married, I will be even happier.”
“Grandfather, I, I am not worthy of him…” Xiao Ming buried her head in Liu Zhongyuan’a arms. Although she was crying now, she wasn’t feeling grieved or anything. All she felt was admiration for the elder who was filled with wisdom.
Actually, from the start, she had never thought of anything like marrying into a rich family or something like that.
Because she understood. She was actually a very clever girl.
“Silly lass.” Liu Zhongyuan smiled and said, “Mingxin isn’t a child who looks down on people. The fact that he brought you here shows that he really didn’t take you for an outsider. I’m not sure how the two of you met, that isn’t important. If I’m not around anymore, you must take care of him properly…”
Hearing Liu Zhongyuan said all these, Xiao Ming couldn’t control herself and cried harder.
“I will definitely take good care of Young Master Liu!”
In the corridor.
The three of them came out and Liu Mingxin asked, “Dad, grandfather, he…”
“Stomach cancer, early stage.” Liu Yihui’s voice was full of despair. “It was lucky that we found out about it early. If we go through treatment as soon as possible, I reckon he can still hang on for a year or two. However, both of you know what your grandfather’s temper is like…”
“It’s actually the early stage of stomach cancer…” Liu Mingxin sunk down onto the chair in the corridor and buried his head in his hands. “How can it be that my grandfather has gotten such an illness… What… what should we do…”
Liu Yihui’s eyes were a bit red. “Since things have come to this, I don’t have any ideas either. The only thing we can do now is to advise him to stay in the hospital for treatment. But…”
Speaking up to this point, Liu Yihui’s was helpless. “My Dad isn’t someone who can just stay in one spot. If he lives under the atmosphere of this hospital, he will probably become sick in just a few days. But if he doesn’t stay in the hospital, then…”
“Think of something, I will think of something!” Liu Mingxin violently clenched both his fists and muttered, “I can’t be anxious, I mustn’t be anxious! I must be calm, I definitely must be calm!”
Liu Mingcheng was just standing at one side feeling anxious but couldn’t do anything. However, he also didn’t dare to speak and could only walk around in the corridor.
Cancer was a difficult problem that humankind had not yet conquered.
In this world, it could be said that no hospital could treat this kind of disease.
The atmosphere was gloomy and depressing.
“What should I do? What should I do?” Liu Mingxin hugged his head and muttered, “Grandfather is only 66 this year, he’s only 66… When I was small, Grandfather’s favorite thing was to bring me out to play. Fishing, eat barbeque… But now, I… I don’t have any solution…”
As he thought up to this point, he violently hammered his own head with his hands. “Why is my grandfather’s luck so bad! Why did this kind of illness come to my grandfather…” As he thought of this, Liu Mingxin’s eyes suddenly lit up and muttered, “Wait, luck? Luck!?”
He muttered this again a few times and suddenly shouted as if his life depended on it, “I got it! I got it! Dad, look for Hong Dali! Quick, look for Hong Dali! If there’s anyone in this world who might be of use, that person could only be Hong Dali! Quick!”
“Look for the Hong Family!?” Liu Yihui was so shocked that he jumped. “But our relationship with the Hong Family…”
“We don’t have the time to talk about this now!” Liu Mingxin anxiously said, “It will be too late if we don’t move now!”
At the side, Liu Mingcheng jumped up too. “Yes! Look for Hong Dali! His luck is good! He might have a solution! Look for him! Let’s look for him!” Saying so, he directly ran out. “I’m going to find him now. Even if I have to let him beat me up, I will accept it!”
Liu Yihui hurriedly dug out his phone. “I will make the call now!”
At the same time, on Hong Dali’s side.
As the Liu Family was practically in chaos, Hong Dali had returned to Chenhui Building.
Now that he had gotten the gems, it was naturally time to try out the Gem processing, embedding, and magic enhancement skill.
He asked the lackeys to carry the health attribute gems into the conference room and instructed them. “I will be playing with these stones for a while, the rest of you can have your own free time.” Then, he closed the door.
“What’s so fun about playing with stones…” Tang Muxin and the rest were all confused, but they naturally wouldn’t object Hong Dali’s words. Tang Muxin instantly looked for Li Nianwei to go play badminton with, and Xiaoyi was considering how to turn these gems into cash…
Inside the room.
Hong Dali pulled out the System interface and looked a +4 Health ore in front of him. He stretched out a hand and softly said, “Gem processing!”
Then, to his amazement, the slag from this half cut ore instantly came off and revealed the jade inside!
Actually, he didn’t understand a thing regarding the quality of jades, he just knew that this thing could increase someone’s health!
Actually, a lot of times, health was really more priceless than anything else.
10 million? If a billionaire was about to pass away and someone told him that there was something that would let him live for another two years and the price was a 100 million, do you think he would buy it!? Of course, he would!
Therefore, this was Hong Dali’s thinking right now. He never cared about how much the jade could be sold, he just knew that this item would be a good gift after it was made into a piece of jewelry…
“Yup…” Hong Dali touched his chin. “What should I give Dad? A ring? A bracelet? A necklace? They all seem quite low…”
These items were all not suitable. If it was for a lady, it would be fine. For example Tang Muxin, Li Nianwei, Xiaoyi, Zixuan, Zishan and such… But giving these items to a guy was really not very suitable.
“What should I give…” Hong Dali thought for a while. “Forget it, since this one is just a +4 jade, let’s just make it into a bracelet or necklace and give to one of the women around me. I wonder how many jewelries can this piece of jade be made into…”
As he was thinking about this, he directly used the skill: “Process it into a necklace!”
At this moment, the cold voice of the System came: “Please set the outside appearance.”
Then, a piece of jade appeared in Hong Dali’s mind and he started to think of the necklace’s appearance—this fellow was an idiot in arts, he definitely didn’t know how to sculpt. Of course, the appearance wasn’t important, what was important was the attribute. Very quickly, the jade in his mind turned into a crooked image of the Goddess of Mercy…
Once he finished thinking, the jade in front instantly cracked into three. The one in the center was the necklace he imagined—an ugly looking Goddess of Mercy…
As for the other two smaller pieces, they were still jade, but without the attributes…
“Hehe, this one is good.” Looking at the +4 Health attribute, Hong Dali beamed with delight. “I shall give this to Xinxin!” As for the smaller remaining pieces, just throw them away!
With this experience, the rest was simple. Very quickly, Hong Dali made another ring. “This one is for Sister Nianwei!”
He had about four pieces of +4 jade that were different in sizes. The big ones could be made into two or three jewelry while the small ones could only be made into one. In the end, Hong Dali made three rings, four necklaces, and a bracelet. He was instantly satisfied and said, “Yup, Sister Nianwei, Xinxin, Xiaoyi, Zixuan, and Zishan can get one each. As for the rest, the lackeys can have it, hehe!”
Once he completed them, he thought for a while and then started to work on the +5 jades. This time, he figured out what to give his parents. “Mum doesn’t have any necklace, I shall give her a Goddess of Mercy necklace. As for Dad… Yup, let’s just give him a smoking pipe, hehe, and ask him to carry it around with him!”
Therefore, a necklace and a smoking pipe with +5 Health were made.
By this time, there was still the largest +5 jade remaining, and he could still make two jewelry with it. Hong Dali touched his chin. “What should I make…”
After thinking for a while, Hong Dali suddenly thought of Old Elder Hong Tu and instantly laughed. “I shall make two health balls! Big Grandfather and Second Grandfather can play with it every day, not bad! Yup, as for Third Grandmother, there isn’t enough… Forget it, I shall just buy more next time. Since it’s just stone gambling, I can buy the stones as long as I have money. Simple!”
He wasn’t good any other things, but spending money was his forte!
Very quickly, two health balls were made—they were just two round balls, it was very easy…
After all of this was done, Hong Dali looked at the System interface. “Yup, I spent 10 million on stones just now, coupled with other small things, I have 11 attribute points now. I shall add it all on magic enhancement. Then, I can add one more attribute! Haha, awesome!”
Very quickly, about five minutes later, Hong Dali looked at the few pieces of jade jewelry on the table with satisfaction. “Although they are a bit ugly, the attributes are good, hehe!”
Now, there was a total of tree rings, four necklaces, and one bracelet with Health +6! One smoking pipe, one necklace, and two health balls with Health +7!
Those who didn’t understand would just think that these were normal jade accessories, but those who knew that these could increase their health would definitely fight for them till their head bled!
Humph, these items are definitely the best option for traveling and killing… Oh, that’s not it, they are the best option for giving to families and friends, brouhaha!
OK, everything’s settled, time to go home!
However, just as he was about to leave, his phone rang. Hong Dali took it out and had a look. The call was from his Dad, Hong Weiguo!
What could Dad want at this time? Hong Dali hurriedly accepted the call. Once the call got through, Hong Weiguo asked, “Dali, where are you now? Come back home immediately, we have got something urgent!”
