Yan Rusheng stared at her back, and he was strangely composed. "Wen Xuxu, I don't believe in fate. I only believe in myself."
I've decided that I want you, so you have to be mine.
Wen Xuxu's body went rigid. Although he sounded calm, she felt that his proclamation seemed to be filled with determination.
"I'll send you back." Yan Rusheng walked towards Xuxu with an intense look in his eyes.
He knew that it would be difficult to keep her forcefully by his side, but winning her heart would be just as difficult.
But he wanted both her and her heart.
Xuxu was surprised by his words. "Aren't you attending the birthday celebration?"
Yan Rusheng snorted loudly and said in exasperation, "Wasn't it your fault for taking such a long time at the photo booth? I've received word that the celebration has ended."
She was flabbergasted! She'd spent such a short time at the booth, why was he pushing the blame onto her?
Xuxu swore at him secretly in her heart. Then she pointed to the jewelry box and asked, "Aren't you giving her the present?"
"I've already said we're heading home first. Stop nagging." Yan Rusheng grabbed her arm in a boorish way and impatiently rushed her. "Hurry up, I'm starving."
This time around, he shoved her into the front passenger seat.
Xuxu didn't think too much of it and simply fastened her seatbelt.
During the journey back home, he played the usual English songs from the CD. The traffic conditions were still slightly congested.
As she listened to the music and was lost in her own thoughts, she gradually fell asleep.
After Yan Rusheng stopped at her apartment, he'd planned to head up together. But after hearing that her grandfather was staying with her, he abandoned the thought immediately.
He thought... he'll have plenty of opportunities in the future.
It had been such a pleasant evening; buying a necklace and taking photos together. He didn't have to end the day with a disapproving look from Xuxu's grandfather.
The black S600 came to a stop, and Yan Rusheng got off the car. He strode with lighthearted footsteps towards the house.
"Third Young Master is back."
The servants all bowed and greeted him respectfully.
He acknowledged their greetings with a nod and headed towards the stairs without stopping.
The servants felt overwhelmed by his friendliness tonight, and they stared in disbelief at the young master's back. Incredibly, Third Young Master had nodded at them and even responded.
"Third Yan is back?"
Wang Daqin had an excellent sense of hearing, and she heard the servants from the upper floor. She immediately left her room.
She bumped into Yan Rusheng at the stairs and noticed that he seemed to be in a hurry. She stopped him and asked, "Where are you going?"
"Looking for a love token," Young Master Yan replied curtly and continued ascending the stairs.
"What?" Wang Daqin grabbed him and asked excitedly, "Whose love token is it?"
If it's for Xuxu, she will help to search.
If it's for someone else, she will help to destroy.
Yan Rusheng halted and glanced at the old lady, then smirked crudely. "Just as you've wished."
"You really are my good grandson." The old madam patted Yan Rusheng's shoulders gently as her face beamed with a bright smile.
Then she asked puzzledly, "What love token do you have with Xuxu? Why haven't I heard about it?"
When did these two kids pledge their love for each other?
Yan Rusheng ignored her question and continued climbing to the third floor.
The third floor was basically a terrace with a built-in sunroom. Some of the plants which couldn't survive outdoors during winter would be moved here.
