Chapter 208: Chapter 204:1 Won’t Interfere in Your Matter with the Young Doctor
Roy Lewis couldn’t stand to see Richelle Dunn and her two kids being wronged. So when they came back home in the evening and Mrs. Collins took Timmy to wash up, he made a video call to his grandfather from the study room.
After stating his attitude a few days ago, Roy Lewis had tried calling home for the past two days, but his grandfather wouldn’t pick up.
So before making the call, he mentally prepared himself that if the old man still hadn’t cooled off and continued to refuse his calls, he’d have to go there in person the next day.
To his surprise, however, the old man quickly picked up the call, but the face on the screen didn’t look too friendly.
“Get to the point!”
Since his grandfather was quite old and Roy Lewis wasn’t a kid anymore, he didn’t argue with him and politely asked.
“Grandpa, how have you been these past few days?”
That day, he had upset the old man quite a bit.
His grandfather snorted, “I’m not dead yet, but if you irritate me again, I might be soon.”
Roy Lewis let him vent for a while, and when he saw the old man’s face improve slightly, he asked.
“Grandpa, did you go to Richelle’s house today?”
Richelle Dunn was usually very careful, and her whereabouts were generally unknown to others.
The fact that his grandfather could find her was probably due to a leak from one of their chauffeurs.
It seemed necessary to have Uncle Axel educate their employees and drivers on the importance of keeping her location safe.
It was clear that the old man had anticipated his call, and he narrowed his eyes and aggressively asked him.
“What, Timmy and you can go, but I can’t?”
Roy Lewis felt the old man was just being stubborn and frowned slightly.
“Grandpa, you can go, but you should know how to be a guest. Going there when only the two children are home and without giving any prior notice is not very courteous.”
From what Timothy and Tifanny had said, the old man didn’t say anything too unreasonable or do anything with ulterior motives. So Roy Lewis’ tone remained calm at the moment, gently trying to persuade the old man that if he really wanted to see the children, he should come as a guest next time and not do anything that might cause misunderstandings.
His grandfather frowned as well, “What, I can’t even visit my great-grandson’s best friends?”
Roy Lewis felt like his grandfather was avoiding the issue. After all, he had known his temper for thirty years.
“You can, but the way you did it today, grandpa, it’s easy for people to misunderstand that you have other intentions.”
The old man snorted coldly, “Instead of beating around the bush, just say I have ulterior motives.”
Seeing that he had put it that way, Roy Lewis laid it out plainly.
“Grandpa, you just scolded Richelle a few days ago, and today you went to her house when she wasn’t there. Who would believe you didn’t have other motives?”
The old man looked angry, “Believe it or not, who cares?”
Roy Lewis was certain that the old man had an ulterior motive in visiting the two children. As for why he didn’t say anything or do anything in the end, only he knew.
Fearing the old man would try the same trick again, Roy Lewis patiently advised.
“Grandpa, I made it very clear the other day that if you have any issues, take it up with me, don’t bother Richelle and her children. Grandpa, put yourself in their shoes. When I was kidnapped as a child, do you remember what you felt?”
The old man paused, then stared at him indignantly.
“Nonsense! I didn’t mean them any harm. How is it the same as your kidnapping?”
Roy Lewis patiently tried to persuade him, “Grandpa, that’s what you think, but from Richelle’s perspective, the threat you pose might be the same as those kidnappers.”
Roy Lewis mentioned the past, and the old man was moved. For a moment, he had nothing to say.
After a while, he finally snarled at Roy Lewis, “Fine, I won’t interfere in your affairs.”
Roy Lewis thought he had misheard, “Grandpa, you mean…”
The old man yelled in frustration, “I said I’m not interfering in your business with that little doctor…”p>
Amidst his surprise, Roy Lewis couldn’t help but ask.
“Grandpa, how did you…”p>
The old man gave him a look, “Didn’t you lay down the law that day? What else can I do? I only have one grandson and one great-grandson, and they still have a conscience. If I say I’m against it, you and the little doctor might neglect me. Who would care for this lonely and miserable old man?”
Roy Lewis found the old man’s bitter act to be both funny and annoying, “Grandpa, what I said that day was all true, but even so, I would never neglect you.”
He was over ninety years old, his wife was gone, and his beloved son had also passed away early. Besides Roy Lewis and his son, the rest of the family were indeed ungrateful descendants. If Roy Lewis and Timmy didn’t care for him, he would be quite pitiful.
The old man’s heart hadn’t completely turned yet, and he had been quite harsh with his previous words. Even if he realized he was wrong now, he couldn’t possibly admit it in front of his younger generation.
“It’s up to you whether you care or not. Your wings are hardened anyway, so you don’t need to look at this ugly old man’s face.”
The old man’s attitude was very clear, and from now on, he would genuinely no longer interfere in his and Richelle Dunn’s affairs.
Roy Lewis furrowed his brows, thinking that besides his unyielding attitude, there must be other reasons that led to the old man’s change of heart.
“Grandpa, did you meet with my uncle?”
Roy Lewis knew his grandfather too well.
The old man knew he couldn’t hide it and uneasily replied.
“We had a talk…”p>
“Did he find out about Richelle…”p>
Roy Lewis’ intention was not to disturb his elders during this uncertain phase, so Richelle would have absolute freedom and time to make her choices and decisions.
Unexpectedly, first his grandfather and then his uncle – either of them was an extremely tough character to deal with.
Seeing him frown, the old man didn’t know what he was worried about.
“Alright, I won’t interfere in your affairs. You guys do as you please.”p>
Roy Lewis was still thinking about his uncle’s involvement when the old man suddenly said something else.
“Those two kids from her family are good kids. Invite them over to play with Timmy when you have time!”
Roy Lewis was amazed at what he heard. Was the change in the old man’s attitude actually because of Timothy and Tifanny?
“Grandpa, you want Timothy and Tifanny to come to our house to play?”
Though Timothy and Tifanny were indeed lovable, it was incredible that they could win over the difficult old man after just one meeting.
The old man had already opened up, so he openly nodded his head.
“Isn’t it normal for Timmy to invite his good friends over to play at our house?”
At this point, Roy Lewis didn’t want to press the issue further. As long as the situation was moving in a positive direction, that was enough.
“Alright, but we’ll need Richelle’s approval first.”
Mentioning Richelle, the old man still felt a little uneasy.
“Whatever, she can come if she wants…”p>
Roy Lewis thought their conversation was going to end here, but then the old man asked again, “I saw that those two kids were quite clever. Are they also gifted children like Timmy?”
Roy Lewis nodded, “Yes, they are!”
However, he found it strange that his grandfather, who had seen so many strange things and people in his life, would be so particularly curious and interested in Timothy and Tifanny..
