She refrained from scolding her just because she was Su Yue.
“Third sister-in-law.” Su Yue bit her lips. She seemed to have something to say but found it hard to bring it up.
Xuxu softened her tone. “What happened?”
Su Yue whispered, “My school will hold a Parent-Teacher Conference.”
Hearing this, Xuxu responded with an ‘oh’ . Why was she so shy about it? There’s nothing embarrassing about the Parent-Teacher Conference.
But she guessed that she wanted her to attend the event.
Regardless of how busy the parents are, they have to be present at the Parent-Teacher Conference.
She asked, “When will it be?”
Su Yue sensed that Xuxu had the intention of attending the conference, and so she sounded more energetic. She looked up at her and said, “It’s tomorrow after school.”
Xuxu considered her work schedule for tomorrow then asked with a smile, “Your brother isn’t free to attend?”
Su Yue lightly shook her head.
Xuxu furrowed her brows and deliberated for a while before replied. “Alright, I’ll be there tomorrow afternoon.”
Su Yue was beaming with joy and stretched out her hand to hold Xuxu’s. “Thank you, Third sister-in-law.”
It surprised Xuxu. She looked down at Su Yue’s hand, which was visibly smaller than hers. Her fingers were as long and slender as scallions.
She too wrapped her hands around the latter’s tiny hands. She pulled an affectionate smile at her. “Go to bed now.”
” Mm. Good night, Third sister-in-law.” Su Yue nodded and turned around to return to her room.
She was wearing a set of loose pajamas that enveloped her tiny body, and her hair was jet-black. She looked well behaved and obedient.
Xuxu leaned against the door frame and gazed at Su Yue. There was still an affectionate smile on her face.
She thought, “Grandmother, if you were still around, you would definitely like her very much.”
“Have you fallen for her?”
All of a sudden, Yan Rusheng’s voice came from her front. Xuxu snapped out of her thoughts and looked at him. “I was about to ask you to come back to sleep.”
In the midst of her sentence, Yan Rusheng had already reached her side. He tightly embraced her waist in a domineering way and pressed his body firmly against hers.
He looked down at her and the corners of his mouth curled with a playful smile. “Why? Can’t sleep without me?”
Xuxu stole a quick glance at Su Yue’s room. Seeing that her room door was already closed, she playfully pushed him away. “Don’t be shameless. Your words may lead Su Yue astray if she hears it.”
“This child is giving me lots of mental stress.” Yan Rusheng felt annoyed. With his hands encircling around her waist, he lifted Xuxu off the ground and carried her into the room.
He threw Xuxu onto the bed, and she turned around and immediately snuggled under the quilt. “Let’s sleep. I’m exhausted.”
With that, she turned her back to face Yan Rusheng and closed her eyes.
But she knew very well that Yan Rusheng wouldn’t let her off. In the next second, he pressed his heavy body onto hers. “Don’t you want a child?”
Xuxu’s felt a sudden flush of embarrassment and she whined for a while. But in the end, she caved in and was exhausted beyond measure.
It was indeed helpful to boost her sleep. Xuxu slept through the night like a baby and woke up the next day, full of vigor.
By the time they reached the office, every employee had already arrived.
She walked over to her desk and sat down. As she turned on the laptop, she stared at the few documents on her desk which had been sent over in the morning by various departments.
All of a sudden, she recalled something and yelled for her assistant. “Mi Ling, reschedule all my afternoon meetings to tomorrow morning.”
“Got it.” Her assistant had just responded when suddenly, a familiar male voice sounded. “You have something going on in the afternoon?”
Xuxu raised her head. The man was glowing with satisfaction. With both hands stuffed in his pockets, he leisurely walked towards her.
