Barry leaned against the car door while smoking cigarettes. After a quick puff, he glanced at his wrist and checked the time. There was still no sight of Celine. Sighing, Barry took a long drag on his cigarette before flicking it away. After that, he turned around and got in his car. It had been a long time since she got into the house; it seemed that Celine's plan worked.

He gave up waiting for her.

Celine felt very happy because she didn't expect that the old lady would actually accept her easily.

"Cora, prepare a room for Celine," the old lady requested. After Cora nodded, she turned to Celine again and asked, "Have you eaten breakfast?"

"Not yet," answered Celine and shook her head.

"Then let's eat together!" She walked over to the dining table and asked, "Can you push the wheelchair by yourself?"

"Yes, I can." Celine nodded her head and pushed the wheelchair towards the table without difficulty.

Grandma nodded slightly. Sighing, she said, "You and the little turtle... are both poor kids. A few days ago, she left for a business trip. She didn't intend to leave you alone like this. It's just that she's a department director now. She is too busy. That's why she's been a little forgetful these days."

Celine bit her lips and looked uneasy. She whispered, "I know, I don't blame my sister at all. But I had nowhere else to go."

"Poor child," the old lady called out affectionately. Then she picked up the chopsticks and began to eat breakfast. She pointed to the food with her chopsticks. "Have some!" she offered, encouraging her to eat. "Since you are Poppi's sister, you are also our family. There's no one else you can depend on except for family. Make yourself at home. Don't consider yourself as an outsider here," the old woman added.

"Thank you, Grandma!" Grabbing herself her own pair of chopsticks, Celine continued, "A few years ago, I heard about you from Malcolm. I've never had the chance to formally meet you. I wasn't expecting to meet you like this."

"That's just life, my dear. Sometimes, it can get bizarre. Now that we have finally met each other, at least you have no regret."

Honestly, Celine was a little offended by her words. Hesitantly, she replied, "Yes, I've met you. But my identity is different now. The world has changed, and so have I."

The old lady bit her tongue to stop herself from making a condescending remark. She remained expressionless and said, "Oh right, speaking of change, Celine, I heard that you were bedridden for four years after the car accident. You just woke up. How are you? Is everything going well with you? I know it's difficult to blend into a new society just like that. I've been living in the mountain for a long time, and I also found it hard to adjust. How are you feeling, Celine?"

As a smart old lady, Grandma was able to change the subject immediately.

Smiling, Celine answered, "Great! I'm still nervous sometimes when I see strangers in the street. My mental age is still eighteen, I think. I'm still a bit childish, but it's not like I can change it with a snap of a finger!"

"As long as you can get used to it, then it's okay! You will be happy. After all, you have already survived a big disaster. There's a rainbow after a storm. I'm sure that you will be happy in the future, Celine." The old lady smiled back. The wrinkles on her face were prominent.

"Thank you, Grandm

," she managed to utter out before closing the door.

Bang!

Leaning back against the bed, Celine was sure she wouldn't regret it. She would win back Malcolm's heart, no matter what the cost.

At noon, at the airport of Ye City.

People couldn't help but shiver at the low temperature even though they were still inside the airport.

"Are you cold?" Malcolm put his overcoat around Poppi and walked forward, holding her in his arms. "Sean is waiting outside. We will be there soon."

"Okay." Poppi nodded her head; she was shivering too much to speak more than one word. A gust of cold wind blew over her when she walked out of the airport's hall. She felt like it could freeze her to death.

"Mr. Malcolm and Mrs. Malcolm!" The two got in the car as soon as they greeted Sean.

On the way back, Poppi was still worried about Grandma. She already figured out what she could do to make her happy, so she repeated the lines several times in her head.

However, she was in for a shock. When she opened the apartment door, the first person she saw was Celine.

"Celine? " Standing at the door, Poppi rubbed her eyes several times to make sure she wasn't hallucinating.

"Sister, you're back!" Then, Celine turned around and went to the table, a bowl of bone soup in her hand. "I prepared some lunch for you. You and Malcolm are just in time for lunch!" she announced.

Surprised, Malcolm looked at Celine from head to toe. For a moment, he was frozen in shock. Then, he narrowed his eyes and asked in a displeased tone, "What are you doing here, Celine?"

"I... I was discharged from the hospital, and I had nowhere else to go, so I came here instead." Feeling a little guilty, Celine put the bowl on the table and lowed her head. "I'm sorry," she muttered softly.

When Poppi realized that Celine's leg was covered in plaster, she got worried immediately. She walked inside and asked, "Celine, what happened to your foot? How did it end up like this?"

"I fell down the stairs by accident..." Celine kept her head down as she answered.

"She came here to see you. I felt sorry for her, so I agreed to let her stay. Do you have anything against it?" At this time, the old lady came downstairs. She had a firm expression, but she was not angry.
