He lifted his bony hand and gently touched her head.
Xu Xiyan felt her grandfather responding to her. She lifted her head at him, tears of joy running down her face. “Grandpa! Look at me! It’s me, Yanyan…”
“Yanyan? Yanyan…” The old man finally spoke, mumbling her nickname a few times as if trying hard to accessl his memories.
The old man let his mouth hang open for a moment as his memories began to surface. He finally remembered. “Yanyan! My granddaughter!”
“Yes!” Xu Xiyan nodded excitedly, more tears trailing down her cheeks.
The old man had recognized her, very happy that his granddaughter had returned. He lowered his head and asked, “Yanyan, how was your senior high school entrance exam? How were the results? Which high school did you get into?”
Sigh… Grandpa still believed she was a student in junior high school. He was living in the past.
Xu Xiyan could only play along. “Grandpa, Yanyan managed to get into the high school she wanted.”
“Grandpa always knew you were a promising child.”
The old man gave her a thumbs up. The news of her good exam results seemed to have reminded him of something, and he began to rummage around.

Grandpa…you’re too good to Yanyan…Yanyan will always remember your kindness…
Xu Xiyan then gave the old man the mung bean cake that she brought for him. The old man looked as happy as a child as he ate it.
After eating, Xu Xiyan accompanied her grandfather to the garden for some sun and exercise. When the old man was a little tired, she escorted him back to his room to rest.
