Xuxu was half-exasperated, half-amused as she looked at him. She said, “Stop giving excuses for your failed attempts. It’s a fact that you’ve failed.”
This callous, stupid woman, he really felt like strangling her!
“I’ll try again tonight.”
Yan Rusheng was itching with anger. He turned around to head back into his office.
Xuxu suddenly called him, “Ah Sheng.”
Yan Rusheng spun his head. He irritably responded with, “What do you want?”
Xuxu saw his expression and couldn’t suppress her grin. “Have you eaten breakfast?”
“I know you haven’t.” Yan Rusheng’s voice was full of affection. He grabbed Xuxu’s wrist and dragged her towards the office. “Aunt Zhang sent bird’s nest porridge over especially for you. She asked when you were planning to return home.”
Xuxu answered, “Tell her that I won’t be coming home so soon.”
“Are you really trying to drive me crazy?!” Yan Rusheng gripped her wrist with more force, and he really longed to strangle her.
“This annoying, stupid woman!”he thought.
Yan Rusheng shut the door after they entered and pointed at the container. He said to Xuxu, “It’s over there, hurry up and eat it.”
Xuxu responded with a vague ‘oh’ and walked over.
She opened the container and the warm steam gushed out. The delicious smell wafted around and she took a deep breath to relish it. “Smells so yummy!”
She took the spoon and eagerly ate a mouthful.
Yan Rusheng gazed at her as she ate with a blissful expression. He affectionately smiled at her. “Wen Xuxu, I can’t believe you’re such a glutton.”
She displayed such an adorable side of her whenever she sees food.
But why did she put on such a nonchalant facade in the past? He loved seeing her like this as it made her so endearing and lovable.
Xuxu snorted with her mouth full and ignored his comments. She held the container tightly, thoroughly enjoying the food.
“I wonder how it would be like if we go to Country Y during this season.”
Yan Rusheng suddenly spoke, and he seemed to mutter to himself, yet asking Xuxu at the same time.
Xuxu thought briefly before answering, “It should be great since it is spring and flowers should be on bloom everywhere.”
She immediately thought of Yan Weihong and looked at Yan Rusheng. She softly asked, “How is father’s recovery?”
“Let’s go on New Year’s Day.” Yan Rusheng rose and walked towards Xuxu.
Xuxu stared at him in surprise. She doubtfully asked, “Are you saying we are going to Country Y together on New Year’s Day?”
“Hmm.” Yan Rusheng nodded and sat down next to her. He sighed once more. “I heard that the wishing well outside the royal palace entrance grants wishes. So I have to make a trip.”
The corners of Xuxu’s mouth involuntarily twitched. “You want to go to Country Y to make a wish?”
Didn’t he say that he didn’t believe in superstitions at all?
Yan Rusheng lazily rested on the couch with his hands propped behind his head. He intently stared at her as he scrutinized her face. He looked troubled and gloomy.
He had become superstitious all because of her.
Xuxu saw Yan Rusheng frowning as though he was deep in thoughts. She became curious and asked, “What wish do you want to make?”
Yan Rusheng glanced askew at the container and didn’t answer her directly. “Aunt Zhang said that she would send you something nutritious every day. She wants you to nurse your health so that we can have a child.”
When he mentioned about children, Xuxu’s face fell and she lowered her head. Didn’t he say that he didn’t believe in superstitions at all? “Ah Sheng.”
Every single time Yan Rusheng heard her addressing him with this affectionate nickname. He felt that it was extremely precious and rare. Nowadays, she had only occasionally used this nickname.
His heart softened, and he answered gently with “Mmm.”
“That” Xuxu kept her head bowed as she struggled to get her words out. “I’ve only taken that medicine once. I was afraid that after I gave birth to our child, you would leave me.”
