"Miss Xuxu, can you tell me the story about the Little Red Riding Hood." She looked up and saw a pair of big dewy eyes looking at her with anticipation.
Xuxu frowned. "Little Red Riding Hood again?"
She had told her this story umpteen times. Could she request for other stories?
The little girl insisted only on the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Xuxu couldn't change her mind, so she had no choice but to oblige.
Even though she had retold the story for more than ten times, each time, the children would listen with rapt attention. Their big round eyes and innocently looking faces would be looking at her intently.
To ensure that all the children could hear her, Xuxu would deliberately raise her voice during her storytelling time.
Yan Rusheng heard her voice the moment he got off his car. She was talking about the part where the big bad wolf ate Little Red Riding Hood and he listened keenly.
He walked with quiet steps to the entrance of the orphanage as if he was fearful of startling someone.
When he reached the door, he saw a group of children sitting on wooden chairs and all of them was gathered around Wen Xuxu. Other than Xuxu's voice, no other voices were heard.
An auntie from the orphanage had left the door opened when she went out to dispose of the rubbish. Without a second thought, he went in.
He had barely taken two steps when a security guard walked out of the guard post and scrutinized him. "Who are you? Who let you in?"
The security guard spoke bluntly because he came from the countryside.
Young Master Yan's face turned black. He frowned and glared at the security guard coldly. "None of your business."
Young Master, was there a need to be so arrogant? He is the security guard here. You barged in without registering yourself at the guard post and you still behave so arrogantly.
Seeing his nasty behavior, the security guard asked him to leave. "Go out, go out. Casual strangers can't step into this place freely."
"..." He was a casual stranger? And he was being chased away?
Young Master Yan turned livid. "You old fellow..."
Suddenly, Wen Xuxu's admonishing tone came from behind. "Yan Rusheng!"
She had already seen him the moment he came through the door and had wanted to see how he would get past the security guard. But she had over-estimated this fellow. He was so arrogant and couldn't possibly possess the virtue of respecting the old and cherishing the young.
When he heard Xuxu's voice, Yan Rusheng stopped himself from berating the security guard. But he couldn't take it lying down and stared at the security guard viciously.
He turned around and looked at Xuxu. His good-looking face was full of warmth and there was a tinge of affection in his eyes. It was as if he wasn't the one who was rude and disrespectful.
"My wife." He strutted towards Xuxu.
The group of children stared at him curiously with their innocently looking eyes. If he didn't put on a smiling face at this moment, he would deem to have sinned.
Hence, he put on such a stiff and unwilling smile that Xuxu couldn't even bear to look at him.
When he walked nearer to her, she asked, "Why are you here?"
"I came to fetch you home for dinner." Yan Rusheng looked at Xuxu with no lack of affection in his eyes.
Xuxu was a little startled. Has this fellow gone wacky?
He only wanted to fulfill grandmother's wish and have a child with her but was there a need to put in so much effort to achieve it?
Could Fang Jiayin be tailing him?
Of course, this was just a joke in her heart. Even if Fang Jiayin still carried a torch for him, it was unlikely for him to go to such extent.
