Su Yan sounded serious.
Xuxu frowned and glanced at him. “Su Yan, are you affected by those rumors as well?”
Su Yan answered, “Yueyue is my sister, and I’m able to take care of her.”
Xuxu didn’t want to discuss any further with Su Yue around. She was very sensitive to the recent news.
So she looked at Su Yan and concluded, “Alright, let’s not talk about this now. Just take good care of Yueyue.”
Su Yan nodded and bent down to help Su Yue with her luggage. “Let’s go.”
“Bye, Third sister-in-law.” Su Yue waved at her, looking as though she couldn’t bear to leave her.
Xuxu knew that Su Yue wouldn’t return to them so easily once she had settled at Su Yan’s place. At the thought of that, she was a bit reluctant to part with her, too.
She sent them to the door, and when Su Yue turned around to face her, she saw her eyes were glistening.
Xuxu’s breathing stopped for a moment and her heart ached.
She wanted to tell Su Yue to be strong and to tell her that she also lost her parents when she was young.
But Su Yue wasn’t her, and she had a more tragic and pitiful childhood compared to her.
Xuxu closed the door after they entered the elevator.
She went to the kitchen to get some water and saw a container next to the sink. She opened the lid and took a look inside of it.
It had just been washed, and it was very clean.
It must be Su Yue.
Xuxu covered the container with its lid and took a deep breath. Her heart suddenly felt exceedingly heavy.
What would happen to the Yan family tomorrow? What would become of them?
There was nothing she could do.
It was past 7 p.m. and Yan Rusheng wasn’t home yet. Xuxu cooked noodles for herself and huddled on the sofa to watch TV.
She dozed off and when she woke up—it was already 10 p.m.
She called Yan Rusheng, and he replied saying he was still busy. It was very noisy on his side.
Xuxu deduced that he was most likely at a bar or a pub. She frowned as she glanced at the time. “Fooling around the whole night.”
Yan Rusheng knew that he had upset her, and so he chuckled. “Unhappy?”
Xuxu chided, “Men who patronize pubs are all good-for-nothings.”
She instantly ended the call.
Yan Rusheng heard the call end. He stared at the screen in amusement. “Hey! This stupid woman!”
His smile was blissful and contented.
During the entire dinner, the men around him received calls from either their family or wives—only his phone remained silent.
He knew that Xuxu wouldn’t want to disturb him during his social engagements.
But he had felt jealous and envious when he saw them receiving calls.
But, when Xuxu called, he felt incredibly blissful. He stood up and turned around to bid everyone farewell. “Chairman Wu, Chairman Tang, please continue to have fun. I shall make a move first.”
He hastily strode toward the clothes rack to retrieve his coat, and he hung it on his arm.
Perhaps they didn’t notice that he seemed to be in a hurry.
“President Yan, take your time.”
Yan Rusheng ignored it and wrenched the door open and left.
After he disappeared from their sight, the three men gestured for the ladies to leave the room. They began to discuss in a hushed conversation. “What do you think was his motive for asking the three of us out for dinner and drinks?”
