‘With Yan Rusheng as her brother, the principal will definitely take care of Su Yue. But if you were to look for the principal, that would be a different story…’
Bai Jing deliberated over Zhao Zheng’s words and her mind wandered off to how Yan Rusheng had looked at her earlier on. It was as if though he had some misgivings about her.
She clenched her clothes tightly and lowered her head even more.
Zhao Zheng observed her every little movement and quietly smirked to himself.
“I have a lecture every Friday afternoon open to all students. If you are free, you can attend my lecture,” said Zhao Zheng.
Bai Jing kept quiet and was lost in her own thoughts. Earlier on, she had rushed out excitedly with Su Yue to meet Yan Rusheng. But Yan Rusheng seemed to be rather cold to her and it had indeed made her quite upset.
But that didn’t mean that she had to listen to this person who looked like he had an ulterior motive. She could tell that he was trying to sow discord between Su Yue and her.
Perhaps Yan Rusheng really had something private to tell Su Yue. Su Yue was his sister. Why should she be upset over such a matter?
Bai Jing consoled herself and that lifted her spirit. She smiled at Zhao Zheng. “Thank you for your concern. I’ll get going.”
She turned on her heel and hurried away.
Zhao Zheng watched as Bai Jing vanished out of sight and smirked to himself.
Su Yue noticed that Yan Rusheng didn’t say a word after driving for some distance. So she broke the silence and asked, “Third Brother, what do you want to tell me?”
Didn’t he mention that he had something to tell her? And others shouldn’t overhear it?
Yan Rusheng glanced askew at her and smiled lightly. “I’ll send you home.”
“But I have training tomorrow,” protested Su Yue, with a frown.
Yan Rusheng quipped, “I’ll get the chauffeur to send you back after dinner.”
“Okay,” Su Yue agreed and muttered, “Why can’t Bai Jing come along?”
Yan Rusheng heard her, but he didn’t respond.
Xuxu had missed this little girl too much, and that was why he fetched her home for dinner. It would be a rushed trip for Yueyue.
There wasn’t a need for Bai Jing to join them for a rushed dinner since the military training was too exhausting.
Su Yue fell asleep in the car and Yan Rusheng woke her up when they reached home.
She stretched herself sleepily, but completely woke up as soon as she saw that she was home. She pushed the door open and bolted for the house.
Her voice was clear and resounding, and she sounded so eager. It was as though they hadn’t met in years. Yan Rusheng quietly chuckled to himself as he slowly strolled after her.
Xuxu was in the dining room when she heard Su Yue’s voice. She instantly leaped to her feet. “Yueyue! Why are you back?”
She was initially overjoyed to see her, but after she scrutinized her from head to toe, she frowned as her heart ached for her. “You’ve become so tanned and you’ve lost so much weight.”
She stood in front of Su Yue and gripped her wrist. She pulled her towards the table. “You haven’t eaten dinner right? We are just about to start.”
Young Master Yan—who was behind Su Yue—had been completely ignored by Xuxu. She didn’t even glance at him.
He frowned and glared at Su Yue, feeling both envious and jealous. But he was actually smiling.
“Yueyue. You’re home?”
Yan Weihong and Mu Li welcomed her with a warm smile on their faces.
Yan Weihong beckoned Su Yue to join them. “Join us for dinner.”
Su Yue sat next to Xuxu and Mu Li surveyed her carefully. She too frowned and exclaimed, “It has only been less than a month and you’ve gotten so tanned already?”
