Charlie drove quickly to the River Road. When he saw Jacob, Matilda was standing beside Jacob, waving at him vigorously to signal him to continue running, while Jacob was sitting on the road gutter with pain on his face he waved his hands again and again.
Charlie pulled over and stopped the car. When Jacob saw him, it was as if he had seen a savior, his eyes gleaming. However, he still deliberately did not speak to Charlie immediately.
When Matilda saw Charlie, she smiled first: “Charlie is here!”
Charlie saw Matilda wearing tight-fitting sportswear, and secretly exclaimed: “This Auntie is really an idol of middle-aged men. How does this look and temperament look like a fifty-year-old?
Charlie nodded at Matilda and said, “Hello, Matilda.” After that, Charlie asked her deliberately: “Matilda, I heard Dad said that you were sick, so why did you come out and run? And your complexion looks very good, not at all sick.”
Matilda smiled and said, “I did have a high fever at first, but your dad brought me a bowl of millet porridge, so I can drink it!”
Charlie pretended to be surprised and asked, “Is millet porridge so amazing? This is the first time I have heard of it.
Matilda smiled and said: “To be honest, I don’t know the principle, but I am really well, and my body feels endless strength. ”
Charlie nodded, looked at Jacob, who was sitting on the floor flushed and sweating profusely, and joked: “Dad, why didn’t you have a bowl of millet porridge?”
Jacob said angrily: “I didn’t know it had this effect. I would have bought more bowls.”
After finishing talking, he deliberately changed the subject, pretending to be helpless, and asked him: “Oh, Charlie, why are you here so soon? Didn’t I ask you to wait for half an hour to pick me up? I have to accompany you but your Auntie Matilda is running.”
Charlie was a little surprised at first when he heard what his father-in-law said, but he soon recovered. Presumably, the old man was afraid of losing face in front of Matilda, so he said this deliberately, acting as if he was not in a hurry to escape.
So Charlie smiled and said: “My side ended early, so I came here first. If you haven’t run enough, you will continue to run for a while. I will wait for you. When Jacob heard this, he waved his hand quickly: Don’t worry. It’s too late. I’m embarrassed to keep you waiting for me.
Charlie smiled and said, “I don’t have any serious business all day long. All I will do is talk about Claire’s meeting in the Emgrand Group today. I am not in a hurry to go back.”
Jacob gave Charlie a faint white look, and said in his heart: “And here I was calling you a good son-in-law and you go and demolish my chance to step down from this gracefully!”
He could not help but sigh and say: ” Oh, I just remembered, I made an appointment in the evening with an old man to go to his house to pick up something, and the time is very late. We must go there first.” After that, he looked at Matilda and said apologetically: “Matilda, should I go here first and I will run with you another time?
Matilda smiled and nodded, and said: “Okay, it’s not early so tes, you and Charlie should go back. You have worked so hard to come and take care of me, and you have been running with me for so long.”
Jacob wanted to cry happy tears in his heart, but he smiled and said: “These are all trivial things. You can go with us and let Charlie take you home.”
Matilda thought for a while, nodded and said: “Okay, it doesn’t make sense to run by myself. I will trouble Charlie to take me.”
Charlie smiled and said, “Auntie Han, you are too polite. Get in the car quickly.”
Jacob immediately opened the rear door for Matilda diligently. When Matilda was about to geton the car, someone suddenly shouted in surprise, “Matilda! Why are you here?!”
