Who could it be?
Jiang Qinglian tightened her grip on Xuxu’s hand. Her action conveyed her guilt and apology.
It seemed like First Aunt had thought it through and it relieved Xuxu. She looked at their pitch-dark surroundings, and she couldn’t help but worry. “But you don’t have to go back right away.”
Jiang Qinglian pressed her lips and shook her head. “It’s alright. There is a flight at night to C City. Just send me to the airport.”
Yan Rusheng cut across and said, “Okay.”
Xuxu didn’t say much. Instead, she comforted her by clenching both her hands tight. “First Aunt, don’t worry so much. Ah Sheng will try his best to help Second Brother.”
Jiang Qinglian nodded in silence.
She glanced out of the window as worries washed over her once more.
After sending Jiang Qinglian to the airport, and watching her leave, Xuxu sighed ruefully. “I feel so sorry to see how First Aunt had changed her mind.”
Yan Rusheng held her hand and gently patted it with his other hand. “Stop thinking about it.”
Both of them left the airport hand in hand.
“Let’s go to the apartment now. Su Yue is still there alone.”
Xuxu implored Yan Rusheng when they got in the car.
Yan Rusheng nodded as he swiftly typed a text on his phone.
‘Check the surveillance cameras at the airport and other places today. I want to see who my First Aunt contacted.’
The other party immediately replied with an ‘Okay’ , and then Yan Rusheng stowed his phone away.
After starting the engine, Xuxu looked up at the sky and caught a glimpse of a plane taking off. Her eyes trailed after the plane into the sky.
She couldn’t help but recall how Jiang Qinglian had bid them goodbye earlier on with such a worried expression.
She turned towards Yan Rusheng. “Yan Rusheng, don’t you think that First Aunt is acting weirdly today?”
“She must be worried for Yan Runan,” Yan Rusheng answered. He then changed the topic. “Stop worrying so much, don’t forget that you’re pregnant. What if you affect my son’s mind with your worries?”
“Why do you keep mentioning ‘your son’ ?” Xuxu glared at him disapprovingly. “How do you know that it’s a boy? What if it’s a girl?”
She rubbed her belly and was still feeling indignant. “Or are you just plain biased and only wanted boys?”
“It’s just a slip of tongue.” Yan Rusheng grinned. “Alright, I shall call our child‘my daughter’ in the future. As long as you give birth to our children, I would love them regardless if it’s a boy or girl. Is that okay?”
Xuxu blushed and looked away. “Shall not talk to you. Hurry up and drive.”
“Haha… you lost again!”
The elevator door opened and Ming Ansheng could hear a girl’s laughter the second he stepped out.
That laughter… belonged to Su Yue?
He halted his footsteps in disbelief.
He had seen Su Yue being excited before, but he had never heard her laugh so gleefully. And she was laughing loudly as well.
Didn’t Wen Xuxu say that she wasn’t at home? Then who was having fun with that little lass?
Was she… amusing herself?
She had such an eccentric personality and Ming Ansheng thought it might be possible. He hastened his footsteps towards the door and pressed the doorbell.
‘Ding dong, ding dong!’
Suddenly a stranger’s voice sounded from inside the apartment. “I’m coming.”
Ming Ansheng suspiciously narrowed his eyes and his face fell. A man? Who could it be?
He had met Su Yue’s brother before. He didn’t speak in such an accent, and his voice certainly didn’t sound like that. So who was that stranger?
