Wen Xuxu remained silent and smiled instead.
She thought the naïve Su Yue would never know that it was because of Flourish & Prosper’s connection that the teachers liked her.
It was at a high-end office building in the city center that her tutorial class was to take place. The classes were jointly organized by Rong Hua’s school teachers. The lessons were superb and so was the course fee.
Xuxu stopped her car in front of the office building entrance. She was about to unfasten her seatbelt to accompany Su Yue to her class when Su Yue stopped her. “Third sister-in-law, I can go up by myself.”
Hearing this, Xuxu didn’t insist and instructed her with a smile. “Be careful then.”
After Su Yue entered the office entrance, Xuxu started the engine and drove off in a jiffy.
Su Yue waited at the lobby for the elevator. When it arrived, the door opened, and a crowd rushed out.
A gentle voice called out to her from within the crowd. Su Yue looked towards the voice’s direction and the corners of her mouth slightly curled up. “Teacher Fang.”
Fang Jiayin came out of the elevator together with the crowd and walked towards Su Yue. She looked at her amiably and said, “Are you having your weekly tutorial here?”
Su Yue nodded. “Mm.”
Grabbing the shoulder straps of her school bag, she glanced at the elevator and seemed to hint to Fang Jiayin that she was in a rush.
However, Fang Jiayin continued to smile at her. “I come here often, but I’ve never seen you before.”
Su Yue looked down and interlocked her fingers, like the usual. With her lips pressed together, she remained silent.
Upon seeing the younger girl’s body language, Fang Jiayin’s expression briefly changed, but she was able to recover with a smile. “What time does your class end?”
Su Yue softly answered, “12 noon.”
Fang Jiayin replied, “Let me treat you to lunch then.”
“Okay.” Su Yue gave a wide smile and agreed without hesitation.
Fang Jiayin was pleasantly surprised, but as she pondered deeper, she felt that the reason the younger girl acted strange around her was because of her age—she was only in her teens.
Being an illegitimate child was as good as being born into a single parent family. Thus, they tend to be reclusive or act eccentrically.
Girls around her age tend to be similar; They love to look pretty, love to have fun, love to eat, drink and be merry.
There was definitely an angle of attack.
It overjoyed Fang Jiayin. “I’ll look for you later. Which level are you at?”
Su Yue replied, “13th floor.”
Without any further thoughts, Fang Jiayin nodded. “Alright. Go to your class first and I’ll wait for you on the 13th floor later.”
Having said that, she waved goodbye to Su Yue. “See you later.”
After that, she turned around and headed for the main entrance of the office building.
Su Yue looked at Fang Jiayin’s back view and pouted with an innocent expression in her eyes.
‘Ding’ the elevator stopped. She recollected her thoughts and strode into the elevator.
She pressed on the 13th-floor button. When the elevator reached the designated floor, the door slid open, and she waltzed out. Standing at the lift entrance, she surveyed the surrounding and her gaze landed on the signboard that says‘safety exit.’
The corners of her mouth slightly curled up. She followed the direction of the signboard and found a staircase, after which she continued heading upstairs.
After a five hours’ drive, Yan Rusheng was back in B city.
He couldn’t help but sigh. Fortunately, for him, he wasn’t one to concede to defeat easily. Otherwise, he would have been absent at every stage of Xuxu’s growing-up years.
Back in those days, he heard from grandmother that Xuxu wanted to take an entrance exam in B City—every college student’s dream city to study in. The university that he went to was one of the top universities.
Xuxu’s grades were exemplary, and he initially thought that she would enroll in the same university. Instead, she applied for another, one that he had considered enrolling in before.
