 Season 7

Episode 75

(The Good News (2)

In the evening, the family sat around the dining table, enjoying the delicious food. "Violet, you made the dinner yourself?" Wilson asked, the surprise evident in his voice.    

 "Grandma and I cooked the dinner together,"  Violet informed him. They made the meal together, so half of the credit should go to her Grandma.    

 "Thank you, both of you,"  Selina said, looking at her mother and niece. Her gaze was affectionate. Elsa had always treated her daughter-in-law kindly. 

Between Wilson's love and Elsa's care, Selina lived a happy life.   

  "Not at all. It was all because of Violet. Does the food taste good?" Elsa asked her son and daughter-in-law. Then her eyes shifted to Jacob.     

They tasted the food and nodded.   

"Violet, it tastes delicious,"  Wilson said.     "Yes, the food is great,"  Selina agreed with a smile.     

"The man who marries my granddaughter would be very lucky,"  Jacob commented.     

"Grandpa! Don't say that,"  Violet said in a feeble voice. Feeling shy, she bent her head and avoided their eyes.    

 "Oh! Violet is feeling shy,"  Elsa said with a grin.     

Selina looked at Violet for a moment and turned to Elsa. "Mom, I know a secret."  

  "A secret?" Elsa was a bit confused. 

'How could there be a secret among us?' she wondered.    

 "What is it?" Wilson asked. He turned his head to stare at Selina in confusion.   

  "Auntie!" Violet raised her voice. Her face reddened. She wanted to stop Selina but it was too late. Everyone at the table stared at her with curiosity.  

 "Violet, sooner or later, everyone in our family would know about it. You are not a child anymore. We would understand your choice,"  Selina looked at Violet and assured her. "Do you want me to tell everyone or do you want to tell them yourself?"    

Violet pondered over her aunt's words for a while and found them to be true. Her family would know the truth about her and Greg sooner or later, so it was better to tell them now.     

"Okay. I will tell you guys the truth,"  Violet mumbled.     

"Do you have a boyfriend?" Wilson guessed. Violet was always well-behaved. She never did anything wrong so her secret could not be unpleasant. 

Moreover, she was being so shy. It must be because she had fallen in love with someone.    

 "What, really?" Elsa said, her eyebrows raising. She was quite astonished.   

Violet nodded slowly. "Yes, I have a boyfriend,"  she answered coyly.     

"Who is he?" Jacob asked. Who was this man who had captured Violet's heart? He wanted to know more about him.     

"It's Greg Xiao, Uncle Fred's son. We know each other since primary school. 

He went abroad to study at the end of our senior year. Greg returned to the city some time ago,"  Violet said, still blushing.    

 "Well,"  Jacob said with some surprise. "That's to say you two were classmates and you know him since childhood?"    

"Yes, we were in the same class. I heard from my father that it was Uncle Fred who saved my life when I got injured,"  
Violet said. She knew Xiao Family well.   

  At Violet's words, Jacob and Elsa understood the heart of the matter. 

Wilson and Selina knew about it long ago. Fred was their acquaintance and Jackson's good friend. His son was probably outstanding too.   

"Isn't Greg the famous plastic surgeon who came back to China recently?" Wilson asked.    

 "Yes, he is a doctor at XS Hospital,"  Selina answered.    

 "Violet, did he choose to be a plastic surgeon because of you?" Jacob asked, suspecting it to be true. He knew that Greg was the heir of XS Hospital, but why did he choose to focus on cosmetology? Was it for Violet's sake?    

 "Yeah, probably,"  Violet answered, her eyes wide. She remembered Greg had told her once that he would love her forever. Maybe it was truly because of her that he chose to be a plastic surgeon.     

Jacob nodded, showing his appreciation. He had never met Greg, but from what he just heard, he could tell that Greg was deeply in love with Violet. Jacob didn't need to worry about him being a playboy.     

"Fred is a good person,"  Wilson agreed. 

"He is close to both Jackson and Derek. As for Greg, he is Violet's classmate, so she must know him well."  

"I've met Greg once. He is nice, handsome and polite. It's obvious that he is talented too. What's more important is that he loves Violet very much,"  Selina said. She looked at Jacob and Elsa, adding,"Dad, Mom. I think it's great that he is Violet's boyfriend. They are in love. 

Besides, Xiao Family is well-known in medical circles. Violet and Greg suit each other, nobody can deny it."   

 "Well, that's good,"  Elsa agreed.     

"So, do you all approve of us as a couple?" Violet asked, looking around her table slowly. Her gaze shifted from her Grandpa and Grandma to her Uncle and Auntie.    

 "I support you,"  Selina said with a grin. She looked at Wilson. "My darling, what do you think of it?" she asked.     

"I also support Violet,"  Wilson replied with ease.    

 Violet flushed with satisfaction. She looked toward Jacob and Elsa. "Grandpa, Grandma, what about you two? Any comments?"  

Elsa glanced at Jacob and said,"Violet, we also support you. Did you tell your parents?"   

 "No. I will call them later. If my parents approve -" Violet replied, but was interrupted by Selina.    

 "Have you two decided to get married?" Selina asked.    

 "Well, Auntie..." Violet wanted to say that they would get engaged, but Selina's words made her feel embarrassed. She lowered her gaze, not knowing what to say.     

"Why not? Your father forced your mother to marry him when they fell in love with each other,"  said Selina. She didn't think it was improper.    

 "Jackson didn't force Cherry to marry him. He asked Cherry to bring her residence booklet. Then they got married,"  Wilson said. He didn't attend their wedding, but Jackson narrated this incident once when they had drinks with Derek.   

"Jackson kept his word. He loved the woman he chose for the rest of his life. We all know how much he loves Cherry,"  Selina said. After hearing what Wilson said, Selina was convinced more than ever that Jackson had indeed forced Cherry to marry him. At that time, he was determined to do whatever he wanted. 

Jackson had always been bossy.    

 "Speaking of Jackson and Cherry, I miss them. Why are they still in Hong Kong? I understand if they don't miss us, but don't they miss their daughter?" Elsa looked at her granddaughter. "After all, Violet is the apple of her father's eye."   

 "Grandma, my parents are busy with business. Just let them be. I believe they do miss us when they are not busy. How could they not?" Violet said, confident that her parents felt their absence.    

 "You are right,"  Elsa concurred. "So we know Violet has a boyfriend, but what about Joe and Austin? They haven't called us in nearly half a month, have they?"  

At this, Selina was also reminded. "I haven't received their calls in some time,"  she said, her eyebrows furrowing. "What's up with both of them?"   

 Selina exchanged a look with Wilson, waiting for his response. Austin usually called her or Wilson, so if he didn't call her, he must had called his father.    

 "Well, Austin did call me last week. He needed money, so I sent him two hundred thousand,"  Wilson said, avoiding Selina's eyes. He was afraid she would get angry at this.     

"Two hundred thousand? What did he need so much money for?" Jacob wondered. He didn't care about the amount, but he was worried that Austin would splurge the money on wasteful things. After all, he was alone in a foreign country where his parents weren't around to check on him.    

 "He hadn't asked me for money in several months. So when he asked me to send him the amount, I didn't think too much of it,"  Wilson said.   

Selina kept silent and looked ahead.
