Yan Rusheng grinned at her. “Xuxu, you are getting more impatient.”
Xuxu frowned and pouted as she grumbled. “After being so tolerant and restrained for so many years, I’m about to explode soon.”
Did he think it was her choice to remain calm and composed in the face of any situations?
If she wasn’t able to suppress her curiosity, then how could she have suppressed her feelings towards him?
If she didn’t manage to control her emotions back then, the outcome of their relationship would have been different today.
Yan Rusheng knew what Xuxu meant and felt sorry as he looked at her. “I’m glad you know.”
After chiding her gently, he suddenly lowered his head and pressed his lips on her ears. “I can’t hold back anymore, so can I hug you tonight?”
Even though his posture looked as if he was whispering sweet nothings, his voice was loud enough for Lu Yinan to hear from the sofa where he was seated.
Zhou Shuang cast an angry glare at him from the opposite end of the table. “Yan Rusheng, I’m still eating. Can you be more considerate?”
After that, she pointed to Su Yue who was seated beside her. “There’s still a child here too.”
Yan Rusheng looked at Zhou Shuang with a blank face. “One day, the heavens will punish you.”
One day, he will make her stay far away from his wife.
It seemed as if he had been making such a vow in his heart all these while.
“I’m done eating, and I’ll go and do my homework now. Can we continue with our card game later?” Su Yue finished drinking the last drop of her soup. She put down her bowl before looking at Yan Rusheng and Wen Xuxu, after that she grinned widely.
Throughout dinner, she was her usual cool and aloof self. She hardly uttered a word.
But all of a sudden, she turned cheeky and lively that it had caught everyone by surprise.
It caused Ming Ansheng, who sat beside her, to think women are capricious and it had nothing to do with age. This young lady before his eyes was a classic example.
Without waiting for the rest to respond to her question, Su Yue stood up from the dining table. She was about to walk towards the balcony where she had left her schoolwork.
Xuxu saw her limping and immediately got up to support her.
“Yueyue, sleep early. The doctor said that you need more rest.” Xuxu held on to Su Yue and discussed with her as they walked. “Shall we continue with the game tomorrow instead?”
Su Yue nodded her head in obedience. “Okay. I’ll finish up my work now.”
Xuxu felt comforted and smiled. “Good.”
Yueyue is actually a sensible and obedient child towards someone who she had placed in her heart. She was almost willing to listen to that person.
Xuxu supported Su Yue to the balcony to sit down before switching on the balcony lights. Out of concern, she asked, “Do you feel cold? If so, I’ll help you to bring your work to the room instead.”
Su Yue shook her head. “It’s alright, I’m fine here.”
After saying that, she picked up her pen and started with her revision.
Xuxu left her alone and strode past her slowly. When she walked past the sofa, she halted her steps. The news about Liu Changfu was still airing on the TV.
The election for a new leader was at hand, and he would no longer have the chance to be re-elected as the Capital City’s Committee Secretary—not even a promotion.
But then again he deserved it because when he was still in power, he was always pitted against the people.
“Want to see me?”
Xuxu stared at the TV screen and spaced out when Yan Rusheng’s voice suddenly sounded from the dining room. She looked over at him and saw him talking on the phone.
She raised her feet and walked over.
“But I don’t want to see him.”
Yan Rusheng hung up just when Xuxu walked over to him.
She sat down and looked at him. “What happened?”
“Liu Changfu wants to see me,” replied Yan Rusheng. At the mention of Liu Changfu, a streak of coldness shot across his eyes and he was exploding with hostility.
Xuxu sneered. “Looks like it’s really him.”
