Seeing that there was no way to avoid her, Nanny Zhou replied, "Oh, it's Auntie Liu. How can I help you?"
"There is indeed." Auntie Liu continued. "Come, let me make some introductions. Nanny Zhou, this is our Old Madam, who is Xiao Ling's paternal grandma. The old lady really wants to see her great-grandson. Nanny Zhou, will you be able to help us pass the message to Xiao Ling?"
Nanny Zhou was unmoved. "Madam already said that she won't see the family, but will regularly send living expenses to you."
Grandma Ye vaguely understood what was going on. Seeing that Nanny Zhou seemed to be rather reverent to Xiao Ling and was slighting Auntie Liu, it seemed that Auntie Liu had been trying to get money out from Xiao Ling, and hence, Xiao Ling did not want to see them.
Wealth attracted the unwelcome, and Xiao Ling had done her part in regularly sending money back. Avoiding them was to be expected.
