Immediately, Su Yue’s tears started falling uncontrollably. She covered her face once again.
Bai Jing leaned against her bed frame, staring at Su Yue as her mind wandered elsewhere.
If nobody told her, Su Yue would never understand that Ming Ansheng was just trying to protect her.
If not for him, Su Yue would definitely be sitting in the police station by now. Even her Third Brother wouldn’t be able to save her from the law.
Bai Jing thought about it and mocked herself. Was she being evil by pretending not to know?
“Aish, I wonder if Yueyue has eaten.”
Xuxu was so worried about Su Yue that she didn’t have an appetite.
Yan Rusheng said, “Nothing will happen to her even if she skips one or two meals.”
Xuxu frowned and glared at him. “How could you say that?”
Yan Rusheng held his bowl of rice and shrugged his shoulders innocently. “I’m not the one who blew up and scared her away.”
Xuxu pouted and knew that she was in the wrong. She stood up and said, “I’m going to call Bai Jing and ask about her.”
Yan Rusheng grabbed her arm. “Didn’t you just call her?”
“Really?” Xuxu asked in confusion. She tried to recall and said, “I think I did.”
Yan Rusheng stuffed a piece of vegetable into his mouth. He chewed and side-glanced Xuxu, saying, “I’ll bring you to the hospital tomorrow to check on this brain of yours.”
Xuxu’s expression fell. “Are you implying that my brain is faulty?”
He was obviously implying that her brain was faulty.
Aunt Zhang, who was serving the dishes, laughed.
Yan Weihong, who was sitting opposite them, didn’t want to laugh. But seeing Aunt Zhang laugh, he couldn’t keep it in either.
Their laughter further enraged Xuxu. She glared at Yan Rusheng and said, “You have to get a CT scan at the hospital tomorrow.”
Yan Rusheng was speechless.
This stupid woman, how ridiculous could she get?
His brain was perfectly fine, so why did he have to do a CT scan?
Xuxu could read his mind. She gritted her teeth and glared at him. “You have no choice.”
Yan Rusheng was speechless.
He explained seriously, “I’m really worried that your brain—”
The murderous glare Xuxu gave him made him shut his mouth.
Yan Rusheng didn’t dare to continue. He passed Xuxu her chopsticks. “Okay, okay, forget about it. Let’s eat.”
Xuxu didn’t take the chopsticks from him. She stood up and said to Yan Weihong, “Father, I’ll go upstairs to get Mother down for dinner.”
Yan Weihong nodded and agreed.
“Wen Xuxu, you’re not eating?” Yan Rusheng shouted after her.
Xuxu ignored him and walked out of the dining room.
Yan Rusheng frowned. “This temper of hers!”
He retracted his gaze and put down Xuxu’s chopsticks. He picked up his bowl and continued eating.
“You should be content.”
Yan Weihong coldly said from opposite him, “Your mother’s temper was worse. She would ask you to scram when things didn’t go exactly as she wanted them to.”
Of course, the ‘you’ he referred to was Yan Weihong himself.
Yan Rusheng frowned. “You mean, Xuxu’s temper is mild?”
Yan Weihong was about to open his mouth when a menacing voice sounded from the entrance of the dining room. “Yan Weihong, what did you tell our son?”
Mu Li folded her arms as she walked into the dining room like an empress.
Yan Rusheng knew that the two would definitely banter. He gobbled up the remaining of his rice and put down his chopsticks. “I’m done. I’ll head upstairs first.”
