That stain on the bed was another troublesome thing that she had caused.
"Alright." Yan Rusheng nodded slightly and passed Xuxu the stack of documents which were right in front of him.
Xuxu received it with both hands and walked to the couch.
Silence resumed in the spacious office after they returned to work.
One sat at the desk and the other on the couch. Other than the occasional sounds of typing and rustling of papers, both of them worked in silence. When it was nearly time to end work, Yan Rusheng's secretary came knocking on the door to inform him.
Xuxu heard him and retreated into the bedroom.
She went to check on her clothes.
They weren't entirely dry when she felt them, but it shouldn't pose a hindrance even if she put them on now.
She quickly put on her pants hastily and removed Yan Rusheng's shirt. Knowing his obsession with cleanliness, she felt that she should wash it.
"What are you doing?"
Yan Rusheng entered the room.
Xuxu spun around with the shirt in her hands and then replied, "I want to wash your shirt."
"There's no need for that," Yan Rusheng said firmly and then softened his tone. "If there's nothing else, let's go home."
Let's go home...
These words caught both Wen Xuxu and himself by surprise.
He had spoken in a casual tone, and it felt like they had traveled back to the past when Xuxu was staying with the Yan family.
He had never done his classroom duties back at school. Whenever Xuxu was on duty, he would arrogantly sit on his desk like a boss, his legs crossed as he impatiently told her to get a move on.
After Xuxu was done, he would leap to his feet lightly and say to her, "Hurry up, let's go home."
Even though he sounded different now, the casualness was the same.
Xuxu regained herself after a moment and nodded hastily. "Oh, okay."
She looked at the shirt in her hands before saying, "Then I'll wash it at home."
She stuffed the shirt into a bag which contained the bedsheets and went back to get her handbag, then said, "I'm done."
"Mm." Yan Rusheng gave a curt reply.
They left the bedroom.
After they got out of the elevator, they walked side by side like how they did in the morning and stepped past Flourish & Prosper's doors.
But the two figuresone towering and the other petiteseemed to look more harmonious than they did that morning.
Except for the President, there was no one else above Xuxu in terms of the hierarchy as she shared the same office as him.
Everyone was speculating if the two of them were really working in the office the entire day. Various rumors were rife.
Some of them were saying that Young Master Yan and Madam might be doing something else when they were tired from work...
Of course, these rumors were restricted within the company, and no one dared to leak them out.
This entire week, they would accompany each other to the company and go back home together.
It was almost six, but the sun was still shining strongly. Xuxu stood on the steps as usual while she waited for Yan Rusheng to drive the car over.
Her phone rang, and her heart violently skipped a beat when she saw Jiang Zhuoheng's name displayed on the screen. Her face turned slightly pale.
She answered the call with a soft "Hello".
It had been a long time since she'd last heard his voice. "Xuxu, are you done with work?"
He sounded exhausted, causing Xuxu to suddenly feel a tingling sensation at the tip of her nose. She suppressed the guilt she felt towards him and spoke composedly. "I just finished up, and I'm about to head home. Have you been busy?"
The last time she met him was at Grandmother's mourning hall, and it was more than a month ago. They hadn't kept in contact since then.
