&#lt;p&#gt;Chapter 156 Hugging HerAs she never expected something like this to happen to them, Constance
was trembling all over in anger as she shouted, “The Tanners are all sc*mbags, Mason! I can’t believe I
treated Willow so well for five years, only to have her betray us like this!”Mason, on the other hand,
simply smiled upon hearing that.He had long since known about Willow’s true nature. The only reason
he let her have her way was that she had saved his life before.“Now, now… Let it be, Mom. I don’t like
her anyway, so it’s a good thing that she no longer wants to marry me. Better to see her for who she is
now than after she marries into our family,” Mason replied calmly.Had it not been for the car accident,
he would have to deliberately go out of his way to make Willow see the truth and give up on
him.“Whatever. This is all the Tanner family’s fault, so you’d better stay away from them in the future!
Don’t get yourself involved in their affairs ever again, you hear?”Mason simply kept quiet as he knew
he couldn’t forget about Sophie no matter what.Feeling uneasy about his attitude toward the situation,
Constance exclaimed worriedly, “It’s impossible between you and Sophie, Mason! Even if I don’t object
to your relationship, the guy she’s dating will! Do you have any idea who he is? He’s Mr. Tristan!”Just
thinking of how she had offended Tristan earlier filled her heart with fear and anxiety.“Stop worrying
about me, Mom. Also, remember not to fall for Willow’s lies anymore.”Josiah had already fallen asleep
by the time Tristan and Sophie returned with the food they bought him.“Just leave the food here, Ms.
Sophie. I’ll take good care of things here, so you don’t have to worry at all,” said the butler respectfully.
His attitude toward Sophie had changed significantly after seeing her enlist Arius’ help.Sophie nodded
as she set the lunchbox down on the table. Instead of leaving, she turned around and told Tristan, “You
can head on home, Mr. Tristan. I’ll stay here and keep my grandpa company throughout the next few
days.”She wanted him to leave as she didn’t want to take up any more of his time.“No, you should head
home and get some rest. I promise I’ll stay here and look after him in person, so you have nothing to
worry about!” Tristan replied.He’s a very busy man, yet he’s willing to spend so much time on me…“I
want to keep Grandpa company,” Sophie said after giving it some thought.“I’ll stay here with you, then.”
Tristan wasn’t about to just leave her there all by herself.“You don’t have to do this, Mr. Tristan. You’ve
been here all day today, so you should go home and get some rest. I can look after my grandpa&#lt;/p&#gt;

&#lt;p&#gt;myself.”Tristan grabbed her hand. “I don’t like hearing you say stuff like that. Your grandpa is my
grandpa too, so I will stay here with you. Don’t worry. I won’t bother you.”“That’s not what I meant.
You’re a busy man, so I don’t want you delaying your work because of me.”“It’s not an issue if it’s for
you.” He was even willing to stay there with her forever as long as he could remain by her side.Sophie
didn’t know what else to say at that point.She wasn’t expecting a person as busy as Tristan to set
everything aside just so he could keep her company.“I’ll be by your side no matter what happens, so
don’t you worry,” Tristan said while gently pulling her into his embrace. I’ll always be there for her
whenever she needs me!Having finished his work at hand, Arius dropped by and saw them hugging the
moment he stepped through the door.So, “first come, first served” isn’t a thing when it comes to love…
Has Sophie found someone who would risk everything for her? She’s always as cool as a cucumber
when it comes to dealing with people. On top of that, she’s so tough that she could handle everything
on her own. It’s only when she’s around Tristan that she shows this soft and vulnerable side of her…
Arius broke into a wry smile at the thought of that. Instead of interrupting their intimate moment, he
silently backed out of the ward and returned to his temporary office. The director of the hospital had
renovated an office just for him, and it was equipped with everything he could possibly need.Arius lit a
cigarette and started puffing away while staring at the night sky outside the window.He was halfway
through the cigarette when Sophie came over to see him.“What’s the matter? Is there a problem with
my grandpa’s surgery?” she asked. Arius only smokes when he’s under a lot of stress. I haven’t seen
him smoke in a really long time…“Oh, not at all. I’m the one in charge of his surgery, so why would
there be a problem? Rest assured that he is in good hands!” Arius knew how much she cared about
Josiah, so he would never joke about it no matter what.“Okay.” Sophie felt relieved when she heard
that.“What do you think of Tristan, Soph?” Arius hadn’t had a chance to ask her that as she had been
busy looking after Josiah since her return.“Why are you asking me this all of a sudden? What I think
about him has nothing to do with you, Arius. You shouldn’t have to compare yourself to him,” Sophie
replied after giving it some thought.Arius felt a lot better when he heard that.“You’re right. No one could
possibly surpass a talented individual like me anyway!”Was my statement that convincing? Well,
whatever… I’m just glad he’s feeling better now.She then asked Arius about the surgery procedures&#lt;/p&#gt;

&#lt;p&#gt;and things to take note of before returning to the ward. Josiah had already fallen asleep by the time she
got there.The butler felt relieved to see that she was actually serious about keeping Josiah
company.“Morgan, you should head back and get some rest. The medical staff and I will take good
care of Grandpa.”“I know, but I’ve been working for Old Mr. Tanner for a very long time now. I know his
needs and preferences like the back of my hand, so I think I should stay here with him.” Morgan used
to be a member of the armed forces before an accident forced him into leaving the military. Josiah was
the one who took him in when he was jobless and had nowhere to go.That was why he shared an
incredibly strong bond with Josiah.“All right. You can rest on the bed over there, then.” Since it was a
VIP ward, there was a spare bed in a corner for family members who were staying overnight.“You
should have the bed instead, Ms. Sophie. I can sleep anywhere, so go ahead and get some
shuteye.”“I’m not tired. I’ll be heading out for a bit, so you can sleep if you want to.”After glancing at
Josiah and making sure that he was fast asleep, Sophie opened the door and left the ward.She paused
in her tracks when she got to the end of the corridor and just stood there, staring blankly into
space.Tristan had just returned from taking a phone call when he saw her standing there all by herself.
For some reason, he felt his heart ache when he saw her in that state.He then walked up to her and
hugged her from behind.&#lt;/p&#gt;
