Just when Su Yue was about to ask Bai Jing why she was unhappy, Bai Jing called after her. “Su Yue.”
Su Yue raised her eyebrows. “Mm?”
Bai Jing stared at her with bright eyes. “Tomorrow. Tomorrow is my younger sister’s tenth birthday. Can you accompany me home?”
“Sure,” Su Yue agreed almost immediately. She then thought of something that made her confused, and so she asked, “That Lei Yong’s younger sister?”
She remembered that Bai Jing was an only child.
Bai Jing explained, “My mother had her after me.”
“Oh.” Su Yue nodded. “So both of you have the same mother?”
After asking, she confirmed it in her mind. ‘It should be.’
Bai Jing nodded.
Su Yue smiled and continued, “Then she’s your biological sister. I have to think hard about what present to get her.”
She then turned around and picked up her phone. She opened WeChat and found Xuxu’s chat.
“Third sister-in-law. Third sister-in-law.”
Xuxu replied almost immediately. “What’s up?”
Su Yue said, “Bai Jing’s younger sister is celebrating her tenth birthday tomorrow and she invited me over. What gift should I get her?”
Afraid that Xuxu wouldn’t know that she was talking about Bai Jing’s biological sister from the same mother, she added, “She’s the daughter of Bai Jing’s mother.”
Xuxu asked, “Tomorrow? You’re going to her house?”
Su Yue answered, “Yes, she invited me just now. I want to give her a present, but I don’t know what to get.”
Xuxu said, “Buy her a stuffed toy, or one of those huge huggable stuffed bears. She’s a girl after all.”
Su Yue said, “Okay, I’m going to bed now, Third sister-in-law. Don’t sleep too late.”
Xuxu replied, “Mm. Goodnight.”
After communicating with Xuxu, Su Yue put down her phone. She already felt at ease. She told Bai Jing, “I know what I’m going to give your sister now.”
Bai Jing smiled. “Actually, your presence is good enough. You don’t have to get a present.”
Su Yue frowned. “Of course I must, it’ll be so rude to turn up without a present.”
Bai Jing smiled. “Let’s turn in.”
“Mm.” Su Yue felt thrilled and she finally felt at ease.
Bai Jing was finally talking to her, and she even invited her to her sister’s birthday celebration.
Yan Rusheng got out from the shower and saw Xuxu smiling at her phone.
He dried his hair as he walked towards her. “Who are you talking to? You’re smiling.”
Xuxu replied, “Yueyue.”
Afterward, she placed her phone down on the bedside cabinet. She then put away the book on her lap and got ready for bed.
‘So, she was talking to that little lass.’
Yan Rusheng nodded in understanding. “Okay.”
He then walked over to the edge of the bed and sat down. He plugged in the hair-dryer and was about to blow-dry his hair.
Xuxu suddenly crawled over and snatched it from him. “Ah Sheng, let me help you.”
Yan Rusheng was a little startled. He froze for a second before glancing at Xuxu.
Why was she being so nice today? She even volunteered to help him blow-dry his hair.
The past few days, in her last month of pregnancy, she was having all sorts of mood-swings. Now, he didn’t even dare to say anything romantic or sexy to her.
Xuxu turned on the hair-dryer to its lowest power. As she dried his hair, she spoke, “She said that Bai Jing’s younger sister is celebrating her birthday tomorrow and invited her over. She asked me what to get her.”
Yan Rusheng frowned. “The Lei household?”
His tone was cautious.
Xuxu nodded. “Yes, she’s the daughter of Bai Jing’s mother.”
Yan Rusheng asked, “Tomorrow night?”
“Yes,” Xuxu hummed. “Yueyue is so happy. Only Bai Jing can get her to accept such an invitation.”
