No matter how hard Su Yue tried to explain, Xuxu was still unhappy with him.
She thought it was all right that Su Yue was insensible and mischievous, but he shouldn’t have kept it from her either.
Su Yue peered up at Xuxu and carefully stared at her. After some observation, she tried asking, “Third sister-in-law, where’s Second Aunt?”
Actually, she was trying to test her tone, to see if Xuxu was angry.
Xuxu replied, “She has gone out to play. Eat up.”
Then she picked up her cup and drank a mouthful of tea.
She didn’t probe about her tattoo any further. She felt that getting a tattoo wasn’t a bad thing. Besides, she liked it so she shouldn’t interfere.
She just felt a little pained and angry that she didn’t tell her about the inflammation.
Xuxu decided to change the topic. “Where’s Bai Jing?”
Su Yue replied, “She has something at home, so she left.”
At the mention of Bai Jing, it had Xuxu worried. She looked at Su Yue and said, “Yueyue, you and Bai Jing are best friends. Now that she’s moved over to her mother’s place, check up on her more often and ask her how she’s doing.”
An 18-year-old girl living in her rich stepfather’s home. What more is that he has children!
Sigh! That kind of environment and family… It was not a place where anybody could easily fit in.
“Mm,” Su Yue replied as she ate. “She’s fine now.”
“Aish.” Xuxu sighed. Given Bai Jing’s character, even if she were to have a hard time at her stepfather’s house, she would keep it to herself.
But as long as she says nothing, they had no right to interfere. After all, that was her biological mother.
She was already 18, and soon she would enter the university by the end of the year. She had to mold her own future.
A university’s acceptance letter was sent out near the start of school, brought to the doorstep by the principal himself.
Bai Jing had scored well enough to enter A University, so Yan Rusheng didn’t need to intervene.
A university was situated in between Jincheng and the capital city, but it belonged to the latter.
Zhao Zheng was right. A university was the top educational institutes in the capital city, and one of the best schools in the country.
During the start of school, vitality filled the whole campus. Students formed in twos and threes along the boulevard and even under the phoenix trees.
A banner further welcomed the new students.
Su Yue was very interested in every nook and cranny of the school campus, the place where she would spend her next four years. She walked in front, taking in her surroundings.
But not a hint of a smile framed her face.
Xuxu clutched Yan Rusheng’s hand and held her belly with the other.
She was infected by the bustling atmosphere and was filled with a mixture of feelings. “Time flies. When we entered university years ago, it wasn’t this lively.”
Back then, when she entered the university, she had carried her luggage and was practically dragged into a particular society by their chairman.
In the end, all the members left without reason and she was the only one left. Hence society closed down.
Yan Rusheng mocked. “That was your school. What did you expect from a second-class university?”
Xuxu glared at him. “Who did I enter that second-class university for? Who was the idiot with lowly aspirations that told everyone that he wanted to go to X University?”
In fact, X University was a prestigious school! Since when did it become second class?
Yan Rusheng smiled. “Yes, yes, my darling wife who sings her husband’s tune.”
Xuxu and Yan Rusheng were bickering as they walked when Su Yue’s voice suddenly sounded from the front.
When they heard her, Xuxu and Yan Rusheng lifted their heads to look at Su Yue. But Su Yue was looking in the direction behind them, so they turned their heads.
