“You’re really a wooden block with no feelings at all. Your life is so boring.”
Xuxu had reached the landing of the stairs when she glimpsed Mu Li and Yan Weihong sitting on the sofa. They were watching a foreign romantic movie.
When an intimate scene played, Mu Li nudged closer to Yan Weihong and gave him a peck on his cheek. Instantly, Yan Weihong’s face turned as red as a cooked crab. As he chided Mu Li, he furtively glanced around as though he was a thief.
Xuxu had half a thought to retreat quietly, but it was already too late for Yan Weihong had already caught sight of her.
His slightly lined face turned scarlet, and he flashed an awkward smile. “Xuxu.”
He immediately stood up.
Xuxu pretended that she saw nothing earlier on. “Father.”
And she continued descending the steps.
However, Yan Weihong was still utterly embarrassed. He was certain that Xuxu must have witnessed them earlier on, and so he gave Mu Li a stern and disapproving glare. He walked towards the staircase and spoke at the same time. “Is Third Yan in the study?”
Xuxu nodded. “Yeah.”
She tightly gripped the staircase railing to stop herself from bursting into laughter.
Yan Weihong gestured towards the second level and solemnly said, “I’ll go look for him.”
He hastened his footsteps towards the staircase in a swift motion. He swept past Xuxu like a gust of wind.
Xuxu cracked up and covered her mouth.
She only dared to laugh in front of Mu Li.
Mu Li wistfully sighed. “When one gets old, romance slowly withers away.”
Xuxu walked to Mu Li, and the latter pulled Xuxu to sit beside her. She gently stroked Xuxu’s belly and remarked, “What I am looking forward to now is these two little fellows. How I wish they would arrive early to accompany me. I can’t depend on that old fellow, neither can I depend on my son. So the only hope lies with my grandchildren. I’m hoping that they wouldn’t only think of their grandfather in the future.”
Her eyes were brimming with adoration and affection.
Xuxu felt so blissful. “You will definitely find them troublesome once they’re born.”
She was also looking forward to their arrival. However, at the thought of it, it made her anxious and jittery.
How would her life be after her children were born? Would it turn her life topsy-turvy?
Mu Li was grinning from ear to ear. It was evident that she couldn’t contain her excitement. “I won’t. Just pass me your children and I’ll take care of them. You can carry on giving birth to more.”
“Errr—” Xuxu steered the conversation out of dangerous waters. “Mother, I’m going to the kitchen to find some food.”
She stood up and fled the scene.
Give birth… the thought was too frightening. She didn’t want more children. Before she became pregnant, she thought the more the merrier, but now she felt that two was enough.
She and Ah Sheng haven’t really had the chance to enjoy their time together.
Yan Weihong didn’t knock and turned the doorknob. He swung the door open and peered inside. He saw Yan Weihong staring at the laptop.
He entered and closed the door after him. As he strode over, he said, “I heard that your First Aunt is selling her shares.”
Yan Rusheng grunted in reply and threw a fleeting glance at Yan Weihong before turning back to the screen.
Yan Weihong’s face fell. “Do you have any plans?”
Yan Rusheng shook his head. “No, I don’t.”
Yan Weihong raised his pitch and reproached, “We can’t let her do that. Flourish & Prosper belongs to the Yan family. She is holding so many shares, and if she really sells them all, it will be hard for us to control Flourish & Prosper.”
Other than Yan Weiye’s shares, Jiang Qinglian holds 30% of the shares. It would be disastrous if an outsider gets all of her shares.
