Chapter 290 Before The Party (Part One)

Derek and Selina felt very nervous in the car. They were worried sick about Andrew's physical condition.

"Derek, Grandpa Andrew will be okay, won't he?" asked Selina, greatly concerned.

"Don't worry about it! He'll be fine; he's always been in good health, " said Derek, trying to comfort his sister, although in his heart he was also very worried about him. He knew that if something wrong ever happened to Andrew, a war would inevitably start in the city. A lot of people were already aware of the fact that the underworld tokens were in Andrew's possession, and as everyone of them wanted to seize their power, all of them would try their best to fight for the tokens. If Jackson couldn't make everyone in the underworld support him as their leader, then a resistance would also appear, and then everything would spiral out of control.

Selina then looked out the window and didn't say another single word. She thought, 'Grandpa Andrew has always been kind to me, and although a lot of people are afraid of him because of his great power and influence in the city, I'm not. I don't care about neither his power nor his influence, I only know that he is a nice person. He's been around me ever since I was born, and he has always treated me very well. When I went abroad that year, he gave me a plush toy as a gift. He was really nice to me, and I regard him as my own grandfather, but now he's in the hospital; I hope that he'll get better soon and always stays healthy.'

Inside the ward, Andrew slightly opened his eyes.

Jackson was very excited when he saw his Grandpa open his eyes, and he nervously looked at him.

Cherry and the butler noticed that Andrew was awake too, and they quickly took a few paces towards his bed to see him better.

"Grandpa, you're awake!" said Jackson, very concerned.

Andrew slightly nodded at them. He looked at Jackson, and then looked at Cherry and the butler who were beside him all together. After he saw his surroundings, he realized that he wasn't at home anymore.
