Yan Rusheng watched her. When she had almost reached him, he withdrew his hands from his pockets and walked towards her.
Xuxu wasn’t expecting him to meet her halfway, and she couldn’t stop in time and instead crashed straight into him. He conveniently held her in his arms and looked at her with furrowed brows. “Wen Xuxu, you are becoming more unrestrained that you can’t wait to throw yourself at me in public—and in broad daylight.”
He had obviously calculated how Xuxu would not be able to stop on her tracks on time, so he hastened his steps towards her. Even though Xuxu felt resentful, she let him have his way. “Yes, you’re right. I couldn’t wait to throw myself into your arms because I love you too much.”
Yan Rusheng curled his lips in satisfaction and his expression seemed to say:“Dumb woman, you are wiser now.”
He didn’t push on to tease her. Instead, he turned to embrace her waist while shoving his other hand into his pocket. “Let’s go.”
Xuxu deliberated for quite a while before lifting her head to look at Yan Rusheng. “Have you settled your matter?”
“It’s already settled,” responded Yan Rusheng as he looked ahead. He appeared to be in deep thoughts.
Xuxu couldn’t help but ask again, “Did it go smoothly?”
Yan Rusheng shook his head lightly. “It didn’t.”
After that, he retracted his gaze, looked down and helplessly said, “That woman is critically ill.”
Did he know that she had already found out? Or perhaps, he didn’t have the intention to hide it from her right from the start?
Xuxu briefly pondered over Yan Rusheng’s intention, then she thought of the words he had just mentioned. Worried, she asked, “What… what are her plans?”
One would never expect life to be so dramatic. She thought that such matters would only happen in TV dramas or novels.
“It isn’t up to her.” Yan Rusheng furrowed his eyebrows as he spoke. “First Uncle is bent on bringing his two illegitimate children back to the country.”
When Xuxu heard this, she felt extremely angry. “Then how does he plan to settle them? Did he even spare a thought for First Aunt?”
First Aunt was her immediate concern. The lady must be feeling very sad.
All these years, she was a good and dutiful wife to First Uncle; neither fighting nor vying within the Yan family. Finally, when it was time for her to enjoy life, she had to face such vexing matters.
How would she be able to endure it?
As Xuxu mulled over this, she couldn’t help but cry out against the injustice Jiang Qinglian was facing. “First Aunt is such a nice person, and I would never expect First Uncle to do such a thing.”
She just couldn’t bring herself to believe it. Yan Weiye seemed to be a considerate and honest person. Who would have thought that he had a mistress and even had children with her?
Mother and children… it seemed that he had more than one illegitimate child. If this were to happen to that woman, would she be able to accept it?
Yan Rusheng answered, “This is the mistake that most men would commit.”
What Yan Rusheng said annoyed her. She chided, “So you also intend to make such a mistake?”
Without waiting for Yan Rusheng to respond, Xuxu looked down all of a sudden. “If this happened to us one day, I… will not beg you to stay.”
Her voice turned soft but her determined tone made Yan Rusheng nervous. He believed that she would walk out without a second look if he let her down.
He unconsciously tightened his grip around her waist.
“Wen Xuxu, in this lifetime, don’t even think of leaving me.”
Yan Rusheng gritted his teeth as he said that.
Xuxu didn’t lift her head; the corners of her mouth curled up with bliss.
Horrible scum. This was his lifetime promise to her—he would never let her down.
