Chapter 504: 503 Seriously Ill
Shen Yan would have even less time to meet up with friends when she returned back to the set.
Shen Yan got up from the sofa lazily and went into the room to get dressed and put on some makeup. She would directly give Chen Nian a surprise when the time arrived.
However, Shen Yan’s phone rang again before she left the house. This time, the caller ID did not show any name. It was a string of numbers.
Shen Yan frowned slightly. This seemed to be the butler’s number for the Lu family, if she remembered correctly.
Shen Yan hesitated for a moment. The condition of Old Master Lu’s health was not good. Old Master Lu wanted to see her, which is probably why Butler Lu was calling her right now.
Speaking of which, it was strange. She had never talked to Old Master Lu before. Why would he look for her?
In the end, she still picked up the phone.
“Miss Shen, I am An Sheng, who is serving by Old Master Lu’s side. I am really sorry to call you so abruptly this time!”
“What’s the matter?” Shen Yan asked indifferently.
“Our Old Master wants to see you. Do you have any free time today?”
Shen Yan frowned slightly and asked tentatively, “Old Master Lu is in South City, right?”
“Old Mr. Lu came to An City early last year.”
Shen Yan’s eyes darkened. It seemed that the other party had come prepared, so she asked, “Which hospital is Old Master Lu in now?”
“The Lu family’s hospital.”
“I got it. I’ll be there in a while.”
“Okay, Miss Shen. When you’re about to arrive, please call me and let me know. I’ll meet you at the front door.”
After hanging up the phone, Shen Yan looked at herself in the mirror. She took a photo and sent it to Chen Nian. “At first, I wanted to find you and surprise you. It’s just that Old Master Lu is looking for me.”
Chen Nian quickly replied, “Why is he looking for you? I thought you didn’t have much contact with him? I heard that he is not in good health.”
“I don’t know. I’m puzzled too.” Shen Yan only had vague memories of a few encounters with Old Master Lu when she was young.
Shen Yan put her phone in her bag and carried it out.
In fact, she was very curious. Why did Old Master Lu want to see her?
Lu Yan was going to get engaged to Su Qi. Logically speaking, the person that he wanted to see the most should be Su Qi.
When Shen Yan reached the entrance of the hospital, she called An Sheng.
Soon, An Sheng came out from inside. “Miss Shen, sorry for the wait. Please come this way!”
An Sheng’s attitude was respectful and modest, making it impossible for anyone to harbor any malicious intent.
“Old Master, Miss Shen is here.”
An Sheng knocked on the door of the ward and led Shen Yan inside.
When Shen Yan saw Old Master Lu on the bed, she was slightly taken aback. She still remembered the magnificent sight of Old Master Lu. She had never thought that he was now skinny and a little scary to look at.
“Hello, Old Master Lu.”
When Old Master Lu saw Shen Yan, he tried his best to smile. He pointed to the sofa and said, “Miss Shen, have a seat.”
Shen Yan lifted her feet and walked toward the sofa. She did not stand on ceremony and directly sat down.
“A woman changes when she turns eighteen. Miss Shen is really becoming more and more beautiful.” Old Master Lu smiled and looked at Shen Yan.
“You flatter me,” Shen Yan remarked perfunctorily.
“An Sheng, go out first. I have something to say to Miss Shen.” Old Master Lu looked at him.
An Sheng looked at Old Master Lu worriedly. He lifted his foot and walked out, making sure to shut the ward’s door behind him.
Only Old Master Lu and Shen Yan were left in the ward.
Shen Yan felt a little awkward. Just as she was thinking about how to speak, she heard Old Master Lu cough a few times.
No matter how hard Old Master Lu tried, he was unable to reach the cup on the bedside table. After a while, he gave up. His gaze fell on Shen Yan’s face, and he asked, “Miss Shen, can you help me get some water?”
Shen Yan handed the cup to Old Master Lu.
“Thank you,” Old Master Lu took the cup and said politely.
