Both of them were seated one body length away from each other and were lost in their own thoughts. They remained silent in the car just like when they first came.
Shortly, drowsiness hit her and Xuxu’s eyelids felt heavy.
The car drove into the courtyard and Yan Rusheng reminded the chauffeur to stop the car slowly and gently. The car steadily pulled to a stop afterwards.
The chauffeur unfastened his seatbelt, opened the car door and gingerly got out of the car.
Yan Rusheng also followed suit and got off. He walked over to the other side of the car and opened the door. Being gentle with his actions, he carried Xuxu out of the car.
With Xuxu’s level of sensitivity, he thought that a gentle nudge would wake her up.
If she did wake up, he would let go of her.
To his surprise, she didn’t. She was sound asleep and her head was nested on his chest.
The moment he entered the door, he carried Xuxu straight to the second floor without even removing his shoes. When he saw the servants, he gave them an eye signal from afar, hinting them to not to make any noise.
When they were upstairs, Yan Rusheng hesitated for a while before walking towards Xuxu’s bedroom.
Her room door was open and when he was about to step intside, the person in his arms suddenly wrapped her hands around his waist.
His breathing became sluggish and the stifling desire in his heart was suddenly aroused.
He looked at Wen Xuxu. There was a faint smile on the corner of her mouth as she inched her face deeper into his arms.
Damn, stupid woman. How dare she feigned sleep!
What exactly was she doing? What did she want?
“Are you seducing me?”
Yan Rusheng’s cold voice fell above her.
Xuxu remained silent and didn’t reveal her face. She just kept snuggling into his arms incessantly.
Keeping silent meant that she had tacitly agreed, but Yan Rusheng wasn’t exactly pleased. He continued to stride forward to her room and made his way to her bed in huge steps.
He threw her onto the bed and turned around to leave decisively.
Xuxu raised her head and watched as Yan Rusheng’s towering figure disappeared. She was saddened beyond words.
When she saw him and Fang Jiayin in the garden, she was overwhelmed with fearfearful that she might lose him one day.
She wanted to put in her utmost effort to keep him closer to her. She wanted to try out Zhou Shuang’s style, to let him fall head over heels in love with her.
Morning came and everything outside was covered in snow. Yan Rusheng had already washed up and changed into his working suit. He came downstairs and was dumbstruck when he walked into the dining room.
Xuxu was dressed in a long pink woolen sweater and a dark green apron was wrapped around her. Her raven long hair was loosely tied up and some strands of hair fell over her forehead. She was absorbed in setting up the dining table.
She lifted her head and caught sight of Yan Rusheng and broke out into a dazzling smile. “You’re awake. Breakfast is almost ready.”
After saying her piece, she turned back to the kitchen.
Yan Rusheng was dumbfounded for a long time before snapping out of his daze. Were his eyes playing tricks on him?
He strode with huge steps to the kitchen entrance and saw the busy little figure. Indeed, he wasn’t seeing things.
But can someone tell him what was happening?
“Did this dumb woman take the wrong medicine today?”
Xuxu brought out two glasses of milk from the kitchen and paid no regards to Yan Rusheng’s stare. After putting the glasses of milk on the table, she hurried back to the kitchen and dished out the breakfast.
There were two sets of identical breakfast laid opposite to each other.
She said to Yan Rusheng, “Breakfast is ready. Try and see if you like it.”
As it had been a while since she stepped into the kitchen, she wasn’t too confident of her culinary skills.
