Ming Ansheng’s eyes swiftly darted across Su Yue’s tiny face.
Su Yue had turned around as well, but she kept her head bowed. Her thick and long eyelashes hid her emotions.
Ming Ansheng assumed that she was still angry at him for yelling at her at the shopping mall. He strode over and smiled at her. “Little lass, are you still angry?”
He managed to conceal his longing and desire for her. He acted normally.
Su Yue raised her head and retorted, “Who is angry at you? I don’t even care at all.”
She averted her gaze and looked at Xuxu. “Third sister-in-law, we need to go. I told Jiaojiao that I’m meeting you,” said Su Yue.
Ming Ansheng and Xuxu assumed that she was still angry judging from her attitude and tone.
Xuxu smiled helplessly at Ming Ansheng. “Su Yue and I will make a move first.”
Ming Ansheng nodded and said, “See you later.”
Su Yue promptly dragged Xuxu away.
After some distance, Xuxu turned back to glance at Ming Ansheng. Ming Ansheng was talking to his assistant, and then she spun around to look at Su Yue. “Yueyue, you shouldn’t just make assumptions to conclude a matter.”
“What?” Su Yue avoided Xuxu’s gaze.
Her hands were clenched tightly into fists and her palms were perspiring.
She didn’t dare to meet Ming Ansheng’s eyes. She couldn’t let anyone know that she liked Ming Ansheng, not even her third sister-in-law.
She wanted to forget Uncle Ming quietly and secretly, and she wanted to be with Jiao Chen.
“When Ming Ansheng lectured you that day, he was trying to protect you.” Xuxu grabbed Su Yue’s arm and patiently explained. “You injured Tang Feiling and she had to get stitches. The police officers were all ready to apprehend you if Ming Ansheng wasn’t there.”
She wasn’t trying to explain and defend Ming Ansheng. What she wanted to tell Su Yue was that sometimes she has to delve deeper into a matter.
If Xuxu didn’t mention that, Su Yue wouldn’t have understood why she wasn’t arrested despite injuring Tang Feiling.
She wouldn’t have mulled over the reason she wasn’t arrested by the police at the scene.
Indeed, these questions never crossed Su Yue’s mind.
Xuxu’s explanation seemed to tug her heart and she stood there in a daze. She gloomily muttered, “But he was so fierce.”
She felt that she was no longer important to Uncle Ming. But what bothered her the most was the fact that she had fallen for Uncle Ming.
She couldn’t meet him anymore, as someone else might find out about her feelings for him. Being angry at him was a perfect excuse to ignore him.
Xuxu was perplexed. She replied, “If he wasn’t, how would he be able to appease Tang Feiling?”
He wouldn’t be able to console Tang Feiling hadn’t he berate her in a harsh way. She would definitely want to seek revenge.
“Anyway, this is just your conjecture.”
Su Yue didn’t feel like talking about it anymore. And so, she pulled her arm away from Xuxu’s grip and walked hastily.
It startled Xuxu when she retracted her arm so abruptly. She stood on the spot as she gazed at Su Yue who seemed to be in a hurry.
Su Yue hastened her footsteps, and by that alone, it was evident that she was upset.
Xuxu heard Ming Ansheng’s voice behind her.
She turned to him with a smile. “This girl is really feisty.”
Ming Ansheng chuckled and joked, “She listens to every word you say. Why would she be angry at you?”
