“Goodbye.” Xuxu waved at her and headed towards the carpark.
After walking for a short distance, Fang Jiayin’s voice could be heard again. “Xuxu, don’t be over-sensitive. I’ve always felt that you and Ah Sheng are the most suited for each other. I’ve never thought of turning back when I chose to let him go.”
Xuxu stopped in her steps. Since she had no intention of turning back, why was there a need to make it known to her?
There seemed to be some hidden meaning in her words.
Xuxu turned her head as she mulled over this and smiled genuinely at Fang Jiayin. “Don’t think too much. I’m not being over-sensitive.”
Having said that, she turned back and continued walking ahead.
She was driving Yan Rusheng’s car that day. When she got into the car, she turned on the radio to a random channel and drove off in a jiffy.
‘On 11 October, there will be a Charity Musical Performance at Capital City Musical Theatre by musician Fang Jiayin, who has just returned from abroad. Tickets on sale now. Log on to the organizer’s website to snatch your tickets now…’
Xuxu turned on the radio to mask the feeling of emptiness in the car. At the end of a song, there was a radio advertisement promoting Fang Jiayin’s Charity Musical performance.
A flash of surprise flashed past her eyes and she curled her lips coldly.
When one’s a gem, their life would forever have a positive glow. Be it during university days or after graduation, Fang Jiayin was always noticeably outstanding.
She realized that she was incredibly exhausted after the car finally pulled to a stop after two hours on the road.
Her energy was totally drained and her body felt so limp and painful that she found it tedious to even open the car door.
Damn it. It’s all Yan Rusheng’s fault for tormenting her early in the morning.
She cursed him in her heart and vented her frustration by slamming the car door.
Dry and withered leaves fall continuously from two huge trees outside the dilapidated old metal gate. As she approached the gate, she caught sight of cartoon drawings on the walls of the two-story building. A heartwarming smile filled her face.
She wasn’t in a hurry to go in as the children were having their afternoon nap at this time. She stood outside the gate for a while before turning around and walked aimlessly along the high walls of the orphanage.
She felt that she wasn’t one who was full of love and compassion for people, but towards these children, she just couldn’t bear to let go.
She hoped that they could have a home that’s filled with warmth, to have a good future and to have a life worth living.
The size of the orphanage was about five to six hundred square meters which wasn’t considered big. She walked to a rustic looking cemented road at the back of the orphanage. White poplars lined both sides of the road and facing the road was farmland that was filled with newly sprouted green wheat plants.
This place is the common border of three cities and their suburbs were also well developed. As a result, this piece of land is a gem.
Once the government relaxed their regulations, there were bound to be many investors eager to bid for this piece of land.
Xuxu took a walk for a while. When she returned to the orphanage, the children were already awake.
Each time she was there, the children would cling on to her persistently. Everyone couldn’t wait to share their daily routines and happenings with her.
She would listen to them patiently. It was at such moments with the children that made her felt the most relaxed and all her burdens would be lifted.
The weather had turned chilly and the children all donned long sleeves. Little Huanhuan, being the youngest, would always have the privilege to sit on Xuxu’s lap and act cute.
