Yan Rusheng didn’t insist as it was better for her to do it indeed.
Once Xuxu arrived downstairs, she saw Bai Jing still standing in the living room. She appeared battered and exhausted.
She felt sorry for the pitiful girl who was of the same age as Su Yue. “Bai Jing.”
Xuxu looked at her and smiled.
Bai Jing turned towards Xuxu and she managed a weak smile. “Third sister-in-law.”
Her smile and voice appeared weak.
Xuxu beckoned Bai Jing towards her. “Come up and rest. Why are you standing there?”
Bai Jing nodded as she shuffled around, looking a little apprehensive before walking to the staircase.
She thought the Lei family was affluent and that their mansion was grand and luxurious. But when she saw the Yan family, she truly knew what an understated luxury was.
They weren’t as tacky as the Lei family who had clearly adorned their house in gold and jewel to flaunt their wealth. This was the real impressive grandeur that a wealthy family should have.
She ascended the stairs as she peered at Xuxu.
Xuxu’s smile was warm.
She led Bai Jing into her room and turned on the light. Her room was tidy and clean.
“This is my room, you can sleep here.”
She went to her wardrobe and found some clean pajamas for Bai Jing. “Yueyue is asleep, but you can wear mine.”
Bai Jing received it gratefully. “Third sister-in-law, thank you.”
“Silly girl, this is nothing.” Xuxu patted Bai Jing gently and spoke softly, “Hungry?”
Bai Jing shook her head. “I am not.”
Xuxu replied, “Alright. Take a shower and rest early.”
“Okay.” Bai Jing nodded slowly as she peered at the clothes in her hands. The material was so tender and soft.
Instinctively, she clenched her fists.
“Bai Jing,” Xuxu suddenly called her as she turned around. “In the future, if you feel like going home on the weekends, you can come here with Yueyue.”
Bai Jing pressed her lips tightly and furiously nodded.
After Xuxu left, Bai Jing went to the bathroom and took a quick shower. She put on Xuxu’s pajamas and stood before the mirror to admire her reflection.
The exquisite silk pajamas hung loosely on her petite frame.
And it was really comfortable to wear.
Her hair tumbled casually across her shoulders. The right side of her face had an indistinct finger mark. She stroked it gently.
‘Wretched girl! Do you think your second brother sent you here to chat with me? Stop pretending!’
Bai Jing’s eyes began to well up with tears. But her tears seemed to freeze almost instantly and was replaced with an icy cold gleam.
She stood there for a long time until she could feel her legs go numb. She snapped out of her daze and turned around to leave.
The curtains were drawn tightly, the white floral bedsheets seemed clean and new.
Bai Jing strode to the bed and sat down. She casually glanced at the wardrobe.
She caught a glimpse of shirts and pants that belonged to a man. She stood up and walked towards it as if she was under a spell.
Her fingers brushed lightly across the clothes and she stroked it gently. A gentle and dreamy smile appeared on her face.
