Yan Rusheng looked at that superficial smile on Secretary Liu’s face and he felt disgusted. He ignored him and strode off towards his car.
The lights were lit along the way back to the mansion. When the butler saw the car coming, he immediately opened the courtyard gates.
The car swerved and entered the courtyard and stopped outside the steps.
A man alighted from the car. He straightened his back and then glanced at the door. Gloom seemed to be cast on the exquisite features on his gorgeous face.
“Third Young Master.” The butler hurried towards him with a smile.
Yan Rusheng replied coldly, “Is Wen Xuxu back?”
The butler answered, “Missy just got home a while ago.”
Yan Rusheng promptly strode towards the doors and opened it to enter the house.
There was a huge difference in the temperature between the house and outdoors. He started to unbutton his coat as he changed out of his shoes.
“Hahaha, they are so funny.”
Laughter was coming from the living room. Yan Rusheng knitted his eyebrows tightly to this. He peered inside, towards the sofa.
Wen Xuxu was wearing a pink fluffy pajama as she sat cross-legged on the sofa. She was laughing as she held a bowl of fruits in her hand.
She just showered so her hair was still damp. It tumbled loosely on her back, and along with her pink fluffy pajamas, she seemed like a child.
Aunt Zhang was laughing together with her.
Yan Rusheng’s expression turned even icier and his hands were clenched tightly into fists. He stormed angrily into the living room.
His aura was too overwhelming, that even Aunt Zhang and Wen Xuxu immediately sensed his presence almost immediately from where they were seating. They turned their heads around.
Xuxu saw him and her jaw dropped slightly. “You why are you back?”
Yan Rusheng was wearing a glum expression, but he ignored her and continued to march on. He walked past the sofa and never once paused on his steps. He went to the stairs.
Xuxu put on her bedroom slippers hastily and jumped up to catch up with him. She trailed after him and asked, “What’s wrong with you?”
He didn’t even call back to inform her that he was coming back. Now he ignored her and seemed so aloof. What happened?
Yan Rusheng finally paused and turned his head to look at Xuxu.
Normally when they stand side by side, the top of Xuxu’s head would barely reach his shoulders. Now that he was standing a step higher than Xuxu, he was towering over her. From Xuxu’s angle, he was peering at her from a lofty and overbearing position.
As she observed the cold and distant expression in his eyes, Xuxu shrunk back in fear. She had a shrewd hunch about why Yan Rusheng was so angry.
Someone must have informed him about the bidding.
If not, he wouldn’t have ignored her and wouldn’t seem so angry.
Yan Rusheng snorted coldly, “Wen Xuxu, you are really getting bolder and you’ve learned how to lie.”
Indeed, he knew!
Xuxu bit her lips. “I”
“What?” yelled Yan Rusheng at the top of his voice, cutting Xuxu’s response. “Do you know how much effort and time I’ve spent on bidding for the land in Haicheng City?”
Xuxu shrunk even more and nodded meekly. “Yes, I know.”
She already expected him to throw a tantrum over this matter, but she didn’t expect it to be so sudden and abrupt. It had caught her completely off guard.
Yan Rusheng sneered coldly and lifted an eyebrow. “What do you know?”
Xuxu bit her lip and mustered all her courage to lift up her head. She looked at Yan Rusheng’s face which had turned a delicate shade of green. She spoke a little louder, “But I had to think for Flourish & Prosper as well. Flourish & Prosper can’t take the risk.”
