 Season 7

Episode 49

(The meeting of four people (1)

Greg went downstairs after waking up. He saw Sharon sitting in the dining room, eating breakfast.     

The moment Sharon saw Greg, her lips curled into a calculating smile. "Greg, you are up! Come and have some breakfast!" she greeted him.     

Greg took no notice of her. He sat down at the breakfast table and served himself some food.     

Sharon watched him closely, noticing the sour expression on Greg's face. "Greg, did you pick up Tina yesterday?" she asked him eagerly.     

"Yes,"  Greg replied in brief, feeling reluctant to talk to her. Why was she always asking him about Tina?     

"Did you have dinner with her last night? I saw that you came back late,"  Sharon pressed, her eyes gleaming. She needed to suck up to him to achieve her goals.  

 "No, I went out to drink with my friends,"  Greg said curtly. He narrowed his eyes at Sharon. "Why? Do I have to report my schedule to you now?"    

"Oh, no. I didn't mean that!" Sharon denied hastily, waving her hand. "I just want to know how you are doing with Tina. I discussed it with your father last night, and we intend to start preparing for your wedding with Tina after Roger recovers."    

Listening to this, Greg threw his chopsticks on the table with a clank. "I've told you that I will not marry Tina!" he shouted in a furious voice.     

"Greg, take it easy. Don't get so angry! You know Tina since you were young. Maybe you have grown up and you see things differently now. But don't worry. 

Tina is back, so the two of you can spend some time together and get a better understanding of each other. We can talk about your marriage later,"  Sharon tried to persuade him. She was determined to make this marriage work, or all her efforts would be in vain.   

Greg gave her a dark look. "I won't say it again. Even if I do get married, my bride wouldn't be Tina. Definitely not her,"  he warned her fiercely.     

He stood up abruptly and turned around.     
"Greg, where are you going?" Sharon called out.     

"I'm going to work,"  he said quietly.     

He slammed the door and rushed out. After she saw Greg leave, Sharon's face contorted. She felt stung and hurt at his words. Every time she wanted to have a discussion with Greg on this issue, he reacted badly. They could never reach a consensus.     

Taking a deep breath, Sharon took out her phone and dialed Fred's number.   

It didn't take long before her call was answered. "Hello, Sharon. What's up?"

 Fred's voice reached her ear.     

"Honey, you went to the hospital early morning and didn't even have breakfast. I want to bring you something to eat,"  Sharon said affectionately.   

  "Okay. Come to my office. Wait for me if I'm not inside,"  Fred's spoke on the phone after a pause.     

"Got it. I'll come now,"  Sharon said, pleased.     

After Sharon hung up, she tidied up the dining table. Picking up a lunch box, she drove to the Xiaoshan hospital.     

On the way to the hospital, Greg listened to the morning news on the radio. His phone rang all of a sudden. The screen indicated Tina's call. Surprised, Greg wondered what Tina was calling him for so early in the morning.     

He turned off the radio and answered the phone.   

"Hello,"  Greg said.     

"Greg, hi,"  Tina greeted him coquettishly. "Where are you right now?"   

 "I am on the way to the hospital, what's wrong?" There was a hint of impatience in his voice.     

"Oh, it's not a big deal. I was going to the hospital to see my brother, so I called to ask if you would be there too. I want us to go and see him together,"  Tina said. 

    "You can go and see your brother yourself. He is your brother, not mine,"  Greg declined, anxious to hang up the phone.    

 "Greg, that's not right. My brother is also your brother because we will..." Before she could finish her words, she was interrupted by Greg.     

"Tina, I am driving right now. I shouldn't be on the phone. Bye!" Greg hung up straight away, fuming. He knew Tina was going to point out the same thing Sharon had said in the morning, that they were going to get married. 'Not on my watch!' Greg thought.   

His thoughts drifted to Violet as he drove the car. He wondered if she had finished her breakfast. Would she come to the hospital to see Roger today?     

At Yuwen's House    

Violet was busy preparing breakfast. Selina too had woken up early to help her.     

"Violet, do you intend to get up early every day to prepare breakfast?" Selina asked as she helped her put food into the lunch box.     

"Auntie Selina, I don't know how else to show my gratitude to Roger. I will cook breakfast for him every day until he recovers,"  Violet replied.    

 Selina nodded her head, showing her agreement.   

After putting the breakfast into the lunch box, Selina handed it to Violet. "Now go to the hospital. I will take care of the rest."   

 "Okay, thank you, Auntie! Please tell my grandparents and Uncle Wilson that I left for the hospital. I hope they don't mind,"  Violet said with some guilt.     

"I will. Now go. Be careful on your way to the hospital!" Selina smiled.     

Watching her disappear out of the door, Selina felt worried. Violet was always considerate about others but seldom thought about herself. She hadn't had breakfast for several days. Sometimes, she even forgot to eat her lunch. Selina was concerned about her health.    

 After parking her car in the underground lot, Sharon got out. She carried the lunch box and walked directly to the elevator.   

  Sharon was glad she had come here. 

The senior doctors in the hospital would come to know her as Fred's wife. Fred too would be touched by her compassionate gesture. She felt that she had made a wise decision.   

The elevator stopped at the first floor and Violet shuffled inside. She was astonished to see Sharon. That face was too familiar for her to forget.    

 Sharon pursed her lips in anger as she saw Violet get in. 'What is she doing here?' she wondered.     

She gave Violet a quick once-over with contempt in her eyes. Sharon couldn't bear her low-class taste. But why was Violet carrying a lunch box in her hand? What was she doing here?
