Sally looked at Carla with her big eyes, as if asking for her permission.

Carla nodded at her with a smile. Sally gave her hand to Steven, her face brightening up.

As soon as Carla entered the room, Carla heard Arthur coughing heavily. She took a few deep breaths, trying her best to remain calm and composed.

She knew her grandpa wouldn't want to see her sad. It was important that she cared for his feelings before her own right now.

"Grandpa?"

Carla called him softly and walked in with quiet steps.

The moment Arthur saw Carla, he restrained from coughing and waved at her with a kind smile. Carla could see it was taking him some effort, but it filled her heart that he was trying his best to be in high spirits. "Callie, here you are..." he spoke with a rather broken voice.

Carla sat beside him and held his hand. "Yes, Grandpa. How have you been? Aren't you taking care of yourself? You fell ill shortly after I left. Did you not want me to go?"

"Is that surprising? You are my only granddaughter. Of course, I didn't want you to leave me."

Arthur patted her on the back of her hand and let out a small cough. "How's Terence doing?"

Seeing how he still cared about Terence, Carla felt her eyes swell with tears. However, she held them back and answered in a choked voice, "He is fine, Grandpa. Thanks to you, everything is ok!"

"That's good. You two have gone through a lot of difficulties. I believe God will not separate you." Arthur nodded his head with satisfaction. He was happy Carla had found a resilient man like Terence.

"Grandpa, you really needn't worry about us. Just take care of yourself. When you get better, I'll take you to JA City. It's just as beautiful as Yu Sea City!"

Carla responded with a smile, sadness gone from her voice. She tightened her grip on Arthur's hand to reassure him.

Arthur also smiled, nodding his head. "Okay, okay...I'll take care of myself. Don't worry, my child."

He looked at the ceiling, sighed slightly and closed his eyes, lost in his own thoughts. A part of him knew he would never be able to visit her there in his life.

"By the way, Grandpa, Sally is here too. She has been longing to see her great grandpa. I'll call her in right now!" Carla said. She took a deep breath and was about to call Sally in when Arthur stopped her.

Arthur held her hand and looked deep into her eyes. "What's the matter, Grandpa?" Carla asked nervously.

"Cal

some time to rest.

Carla had almost lost all control of her emotions. Without saying anything else, she simply walked out of the yard.

It was at that moment that Steven came back with Sally. Looking at Carla's red face, he excused himself from Sally and walked toward Carla.

"What's the matter, Carla? Is Grandpa..."

Steven asked nervously.

Carla shook her head and looked away, trying to hide her face. She walked away from him and toward the front garden.

"Then why are you crying?"

Steven followed her, offering her a clean handkerchief, speaking in a gentle voice, "It's the order of nature, Carla. Grandpa is old. Don't be sad..."

Carla didn't take the handkerchief. She wiped off her tears with her sleeves, took a deep breath and looked up at the sky. It was nearly dusk. The birds were returning home, and the evening looked rather calm.

"Callie, life is not that long. Sometimes, we have to face unexpected disasters, illness and death. All we can do is cherish the present..."

Steven sighed, taking back the handkerchief.

He understood the essence of life, so he never regretted anything he had done.

Even if he had to leave, he wouldn't have any regrets as he would still have memories of being with her to cherish.

Every human was selfish in some or the other way. But he couldn't long for what he wanted at the cost of hurting others.

"Steven, I think you should leave after everything settles with Grandpa,"

Carla said abruptly.

Steven's heart skipped a beat. He paused for a second, clenching his hand into a fist. After a while, he replied softly, "Okay, Carla..."
