Xuxu was a little shy, so she whispered, “It was just a one-sided love. I didn’t let him know.”
“Third sister-in-law.” Su Yue looked at her solemnly. “Will Third Brother love you for a lifetime?”
As the sunlight hit her pretty face, her pair of eyes revealed sorrow and worry.
Xuxu knew what worried her, so she nodded. “I believe that he will.”
But then she asked, “What do you think?”
How intensive was the suffering she had gone through in the past years? She reckoned Su Yue didn’t have an ounce of optimism at all.
She suddenly felt relieved that First Uncle had brought Su Yue to the family. If she had stayed on in Country Y, what would her future have been like?
She couldn’t foresee the future, but she knew it wouldn’t be a bright and happy one.
Su Yue shook her head and pursed her lips. “I don’t know.”
Xuxu patted her hand. With a gentle voice, she advised, “This world isn’t as bad as you imagined. In the future, someone will love you so much. Optimism always triumphs over pessimism, just like how there are definitely more good people in the world than the bad ones.”
Su Yue curled her lips but didn’t speak.
‘In the future, someone will love you so much.’
She never imagined that it would happen to her someday, even if every day after school she would always see couples holding hands on the streets and on TV shows, too.
But would someone really love her one day?
She was an illegitimate child, borne by a mistress. She was a girl who her own mother abandoned.
“Your wound is slightly infected already. Do not touch water again.”
The doctor sternly reminded her as he bandaged her wounds.
Su Yue bowed her head in silence as though she couldn’t hear anyone talking to her.
The doctor glanced at Xuxu when Su Yue didn’t respond. Xuxu eyed him with a meaningful look for him to continue advising Su Yue.
The doctor comprehended her meaning and raised his voice. “Do you understand me?”
Su Yue finally nodded and hummed in response.
The doctor continued reminding her about some other stuff. Xuxu listened on and also tried her best to remember, but she didn’t interrupt.
When they got in the car, Xuxu smiled at Su Yue. “Yueyue, do you remember the things that the doctor instructed you earlier on?”
“Of course.” Su Yue nodded. “I can’t touch water, no spicy food, and no vigorous exercise while my wound is healing. I need to go outdoors more often and stay cheerful.”
She finished a complete sentence and blinked. “Third sister-in-law, did you think I suffered from amnesia? How could I forget everything just minutes ago?”
It startled Xuxu that she couldn’t even respond. It was probably the first time she had heard Su Yue talked so much.
What was surprising was that she had tried to crack a joke.
She beamed. “I was afraid you can’t remember. The next time you forget, I’ll wash my hands off you. If you get an infection, and your skin rots and leave a scar, you won’t be able to wear a bikini and shorts in the future.”
Su Yue pursed her lips. “I have no intention of wearing it in the first place.”
She had never worn something so skimpy at all.
Xuxu quietly stared at Su Yue as she smiled. Su Yue seemed to have become… cheeky.
Did the doctor’s words cause this change in her?
Regardless of what it was, wasn’t it a good sign?
The chauffeur started the car and turned around. “Young madam, do we go home?”
Xuxu was about to nod when Su Yue cut across. “Third sister-in-law, I want to stay at my brother’s place for a few days.”
