Xuxu couldn’t wait any longer and hastened her footsteps. Was there some joyous occasion that led the children out for some fun despite such bitterly cold weather?
“Hey, Xuxu is here.”
The security guard at the orphanage was visibly shocked, and yet pleasantly surprised when he saw Xuxu. He promptly opened the courtyard door. “Mr. Ah Heng had just arrived too.”
Xuxu was rather startled. “He’s here too?”
The security guard nodded in return. “He arrived less than 10 minutes ago.”
“Oh.” Xuxu stretched her hand and held on to Su Yue. “Yueyue, let’s go in quickly.”
Su Yue’s hand was icy cold. She timidly surveyed the surrounding of the orphanage.
Xuxu leaned over and whispered into her ears, “I’m very good at making chocolates. Tonight, I’ll make some for you when we get home.”
“Okay!” Su Yue happily nodded her head. She had completely let down her guard.
In the courtyard, a group of children was playing some games. They joined hands and formed a circle around Jiang Zhuoheng.
It was now winter. Everyone bundled up like a haystack and their cheeks had turned as red as an apple from the cold.
Jiang Zhuoheng was wearing a suit with a down-filled coat pulled over it. A piece of red cloth blindfolded his eyes. He was fumbling around with both his hands stretched out in front of him.
The children encircled him, and one of the children was wearing a cap with a red flag.
At a glance, Xuxu could easily tell that Young Master Jiang was trying to feel for the red flag.
She looked at Su Yue who was next to her. Su Yue fixed her eyes at them, but there wasn’t a trace of expression on her face.
She seemed to be disinterested.
All of a sudden, a sharp-eyed child from among the group of children, spotted Xuxu and squealed in delight.
“It’s really Sister Xuxu.”
Instantly, all attention turned away from Young Master Jiang and everyone flooded towards Xuxu.
Xuxu smiled and squatted down to receive warm hugs from the children. She hugged each one who excitedly jumped on her.
“Xuxu.” Jiang Zhuoheng trailed behind the children and walked towards Xuxu with a smile.
When Xuxu heard Jiang Zhuoheng calling out to her, she raised her head and looked over. Noticing the bruise at the corner of his mouth, she raised her voice on purpose. “Hey, is it the trend to have wounds on one’s face?”
Hearing this, Jiang Zhuoheng instinctively reached out to feel his bruise. He lowered his head in embarrassment.
“Sister Xuxu, brother Ah Heng said he had a fight with a jerk and beat him up. What is a jerk?”
“Brother is so awesome.”
All the little children raised their heads and curiously looked at Xuxu.
Xuxu was dumbfounded…
Was Jiang Zhuoheng being influenced by Yan Rusheng or was he giving him a taste of his own medicine?
Yan Rusheng often put him down in her presence.
She knew that Ah Heng was thin-skinned, and she mustn’t over tease him. She stood up and held Su Yue by her hand and introduced her to the children. “I’ve brought a sister today.”
The children’s vision moved simultaneously towards Su Yue.
“Wow, this sister is so pretty.”
When they saw Su Yue’s exquisite face, they continuously lavished praises on her with words that they were familiar with.
Xuxu added, “This sister’s name is Su Yue.”
Immediately, one child from the crowd fought to speak. “Sister Moon.”
Sister Moon? Xuxu momentarily paused when she heard the nickname. She looked at Su Yue and spotted her curled lips.
She could sense that she adored this nickname. Hence, she smiled and said to the children, “Alright, you can address her as Sister Moon.”
Xuxu stirred Su Yue around. She gradually warmed up and blended into the children’s joyful spirits.
“Ah Heng, why are you here?”
Xuxu took the opportunity to have a chat with Jiang Zhuoheng.
Jiang Zhuoheng lightly answered, “I came over to settle some government-related land matters and took the chance to visit the children.”
