Ming Ansheng waved at Xuxu. “I’ll go off.”
Xuxu nodded. “Be careful on the road.”
She watched as Ming Ansheng’s car vanished from her sight. Xuxu whipped out her phone to call Yan Rusheng.
If Ming Ansheng hadn’t mentioned Yan Rusheng, she would have forgotten that he seemed to have gone off the radar for the entire day.
The line got through and she heard the familiar song Love Letter . Shortly after that, he answered. “Xuxu.”
Xuxu asked, “Where are you?”
She could hear the clinking sounds of glasses in the background, and she wondered if he was in the midst of accommodating someone.
Yan Rusheng replied, “I have a dinner appointment tonight. I will be back late tonight.”
As expected. Xuxu nodded. “Alright then.”
Then she pressed on, “Don’t drink so much and come home early.”
Yan Rusheng agreed, and she hung up.
It was mid-April, and the days were longer. It was almost 6 p.m. and the sun was still shining bright in the sky.
Xuxu entered the building, got in the elevator, and took out her keys.
She received a shock when she opened the door.
Su Yue was pulling a suitcase from the room. Xuxu rushed towards her. “Yueyue, what are you doing?”
Su Yue smiled. “My brother just called me and said that he would pick me up. I’m going to his place.”
“But your brother doesn’t have time to take care of you.” Xuxu frowned. “You can stay at my place for as long as you want.”
Does Yueyue feel burdened staying at her place?
Su Yue shook her head, and she appeared rather pained. A determined smile soon replaced it. “It’s alright, I’ll be fine.”
Xuxu spoke in a concerned tone. “I will be worried if you stayed at your brother’s place. He is too busy to take care of you.”
Su Yue smiled and reassured her, “Third sister-in-law, I’m no longer a kid.”
“Alright then.” Xuxu continued, “If you encounter any problems, you must call me right away, understand?”
It might be a good idea for her to have a change of environment so she could learn to adapt and be flexible. And she really needed to spend more time with Su Yan.
After all, they were siblings.
Su Yue nodded. “Mm.”
Su Yan arrived while they were talking, and he stood on the carpet at the door. He didn’t intend to enter after he had greeted Xuxu. He then glanced at Su Yue. “Yueyue, are you ready?”
Su Yue nodded. “Yes.”
She seemed so nonchalant and cold whenever she talked to Su Yan. There wasn’t any warmth, neither were there emotions.
Xuxu walked to Su Yan and nagged, “Su Yan, you have to take good care of her. Don’t just focus on your work.”
Su Yan flashed a playful smile. “Why don’t you move to my place too?”
Xuxu rolled her eyes at Su Yan. “Scram!”
She held on to Su Yue’s hand. She then tucked the loose strands of her hair that curtained her face behind her ears. “Remember that you have to call me if you need me. I’ll get the chauffeur to pick and send you to school.”
Su Yan interrupted with a drawl. “It’s alright. I can send her to school every morning and fetch her home after work. It’s fine.”
